Let's celebrate Christmas with Avery Elle!

Hi there and happy monday! 
I can't believe it's already Nov. 30, where did the time go?! 
So December is here in just one day and I have to decorate the tree and have a hot chocolate! Can you believe I haven't had one yet this festive season?! Aww and I love love looove hot chocolate.. btw enough rambling around here.. let's dive into the project!


Avery Elle, dear Avery Elle..how much I love you Avery Elle?!
That's how I feel, I genuinely love AE products so much and I'm always always chasing time  to be able to create and share more made with their products.
So today I dusted off one of my favorite set of all times: Winter Woodland Wonders + it's coordinated dies. 


I know, I'm sorry .. AE doesn't stock these anymore so naughty blogger around here but.. I hope this will inspire your creativity no matter what and I'm pretty sure you could be able to put your hands on this set by looking for it on some smaller crafty retails out there :)
So, as always I started by making my cardbases out of white cardstock, then I cut out 2 smaller panels, I inked them up with the Broken China Distress ink oxide and let them dry completely.


Then I stamped, colored with my copics and die cut all the images. I added some details with my white gel pen to them all and then started arranging them onto these cute little scenes.


As you may notice I also added a banner ( you know I love me a little cute banner!) and I chose the one from the Banner Bits set cause it fits these sentiments perfectly.


I glued everything down with a combo of liquid glue and foam adhesive and finally I added some sparkle with my Wink Of Stella clear brush and some dots in the background with my white gel pen to mimic falling snow.

I hope you like these Holiday cards as much as I do and thanks a lot for stopping by today!

"Meowy Catmas to you" with Simon Says Stamp!

Hi crafty friends! 
Today I'm sharing a couple of festive cards for all of you - cat lovers - out there..


So.. I'm in love! 
Super simple design but with a fun techinque twist and these little kittens all dressed up for Christmas are the cutest ever!
First of all I created my cardbases out of white cardstock and I stamped my Petal Play Background by Hello Bluebird on the fronts using kiddie pool ink by Lawn Fawn.


Then I cut out 2 matching panels out of the same white cardstock ad I stamped my images + the sentiments from the Meowy Catmas set by Simon Says Stamp.
Then I colored them with my copics and added some details with a white gel pen.
I partially cut them out, leaving them attached to the panel at the bottom  and I trimmed the excess top panel at the top.
The partial die cutting technique is so much fun and can be used to achieve lots of different styles and designs: this is so pretty!


Finally I added little hearts and some Nuvo Drops in Duck Egg Blue as embellishments here and there.
Hope you like these clean and simple Christmas cards and thanks a lot for stopping by today!

"Sending Holiday Smiles" with Heffy Doodle!

Hello there and happy saturday!
Today I'm happy to share this cute Christmas puppies card I made with all Heffy Doodle goodies..


Aww look at these adorable doggies having fun in the snow! 
First of all I created my cardbase out some white cardstock, I masked the front bottom with some Heffy Memo Tape and and I inked the top with Distress inks.
I let it dry completely and then I added snow onto my background, using some Nuvo Mousse over the First Snow stencil.


Then I stamped, colored with copics and die cut all my images from these sets: Hot Diggity Dog + coordinated dies, Wanna Build A Snowman + coordinated dies and Elfish Antics + coordinated dies. 
I added lots of details to all the elements with a white gel pen and then I glued them all to my card into this fun festive scene using some foam adhesive.

A festive week with Hello Bluebird - Day 5

Hello and welcome to Day 5 of my festive week with Hello Bluebird!
Today is the final day and I'm sharing a cute card to say "Thanks a latte" for joinig and following along! 


All these cuties included in the Coffee Friends set are celebrating the season with a cup of hot chocolate, tea or coffee and they're so cute!
For my design I used the frame included in the Gallery Frame # 3 Die and I created my background out  of white cardstock by coloring  with my copics behind each little window.


Of course I used the same copic colors for all my critters and then I added details with my white gel pen and sparkle with my Wink of Stella Clear brush.


Aww I love this card so so much! 
I hope you enjoyed my little festive week serie and you are now inspired to create :)
