A little penguins snowglobe card with Heffy Doodle!


Hello there!
Today I'm up o the Heffy Doodle blog to celebrate the new year with the adorable penguins from the Wanna Build a Snowman set!





Awww I love these cuties soooo much! 
First of all I die cut a stitched circle and a stitched hill. I stamped colored and die cut the images and also stamped the sentiment on a thin stripe of white cardstock.



I drew the base of the snowglobe on to a piece of light grey cardstock, I cut it out and I inked it with brown shades of Distress inks. I also added some details to add dimension and give it a wood texture feel. 
I also inked up the sky and glued down all the elements with a combo of liquid glue and foam tape.



I added some glitters and some details with a white gel pen and I'm so happy about how this little snowglobe card turned out!

Happy New Year with Sunny Studio!

Hello there!
Today I'm up on the Sunny Studio blog with a "Happy New Year" card.



I made a little winter scene here combining lots of Sunny Studio products: the Rustic Winter set, the Fancy Frames Rectangle set, the Woodland Borders, the Happy Thought stamp set and the Holiday Cheer paper pad.

First I created my card base out of white cardstock and I added some dry embossed details with my scoring board. 
Then I die cut all the elements I need to build my little winter scene and I colored them with copics and distress inks.



I die cut a fancy rectangle frame from the patterned paper and glued all the die cut elements together.
I added some details to the background, the little deer and the pine tree with a white gel pen and then I stamped my sentiment.

It's like a little frame on a card and I'm so happy about how this little festive critter turned out!

"Corn-gratulations" with Heffy Doodle!

Hello there again! 
Poppin' in your congratulations has never been so much fun!
I'm up on the Heffy DOodle blog now with a super cute Congratulations card featuring the Veggie Patch set!




These little images are soo  super cute and fun, aren't they?!
I stamped them with memento black ink and colored them with my copics, of course I added little rosy cheecks and a little heart for this sweet couple in love!



For the background I used the Slants Vs Rombies stencil, it's a super cool pattern and I thought it would have been great in light blue on my design. I also added some green sparkle washi tape at the corner of my panel to frame it and I love how it turned out!




Its a super simple design but, oh so cute!
Hope you like it and thank you so much for stopping by today!

Christmas tags with Sunny Studio!

Hi there and happy wednesday!
Today I'm up on the Sunny Studio blog with a little trio of tags made with all my favorite cuties!



These are super simple, quick and easy to make so, if you have a ton to make for all your Christmas gifts be sure to give this simple design a try!
First of all I die cut my tags from the Build a tag 1 set out of white cardstock and I also cut out some more to create my snowy hills later on.



I stamped all the critters from different sets: Party Pups, Purrfect Birthday and Alpaca Holiday.
The dog and the little cat are my fave, they are from birthday themed sets but just with different colors on the little presents they are perfect for Christmas!! 



I die cut all the images with their coordinated dies and I inked all my tags to create a dark night effect.
I die cut all the snowy hills with the Woodland Borders set and composed all my little tags. 



Finally I added some snow to my backgrounds drawing little dots here and there with a white gel pen and little red clips at the tops. 
I also arranged them in a little banner with some white pom poms so I can display them in my craft room before I'll attach them to my gifts! 

Hope you like this festive tags and thank u so much for stopping by today!

"The Christmas Serie 2018"- Day 23": a Christmas Tree Penguin ornament with Hello Bluebird!


Hi there!
I'm super happy to finally share this handmade cuties I made to dress up my Christmas Tree! 

It's a little wood piece ornament I decorated and painted to be a starry and snowy night sky scene with a little penguin.. awww I love it so much!


First I stamped the stars and the little penguin on the wood piece with a light ink and then I started painting with the no line coloring technique. It was quite a challenge cause I just have a few acrylics colors but I'm so happy about how it turned out! 


It does make u feel dreaming about a White Christmas, doesn't it?!

"Have a wonderful winter day" with Picket Fence Studios!

Hello there! 
Today I'm happy to share with u these little card set, winter themed and full of Picket Fence Studios cuties!!


This a new brand to me and they kindly sent me some products to test and ...long story short..I fell in love!! 
They have lots of stamps with different styles but ..we talk about adorable critters and punny and sweet sentiment?! I'm all in!!


These winter set is called "Have a Wonderful Winter Day" and it features 2 little critters, a snowman, lots of sentiments and what just became my favorite sentiment of all time: "if snowflakes were kisses I'd send you a blizzard". Isn't it soo sweet?! Awww!! 


Christmas is just around the corner and we may don't have that much time to make elaborated handmade cards/ try new twchniques and that's for me as well, I feel like I'm constantly in a hurry this time of year and the one thing that made me create these cards in no time was.. the Life Changing Blender Brush set! 
I usually love my critters poppin' against an ink blended background and I have always used my mini ink blending tools by Ranger. I have never had any broblems with them but lots of people find the ink blending technique tricky and time consuming so that's why these new brushes are the stars of the show here! 
They are amazing, there are so many bristles in each brush and they are also shaped to leave almost no ink marks ( that u don't want!) on paper.


Inking from the center to the edges of the card is the most difficult case for me and look at these cards, beautiful and smooth transitions from the blue areas to the white ones. 
It's amazing and effortless with these tools, I'm impressed! 
Hope u like these simple cards, I have more to share in the next few days with another super cute set by Picket Fence: the "Santa's Sleigh" one.

Be sure to discover this brand and all their products *here* and thank u so much for stopping by 
today!

"The Christmas Serie 2018"- Day 22": Prehistoric Christmas with Heffy Doodle!

Hello there! 
Today I'm up on the Heffy Doodle blog with a super cute and fun Christmassy card!


Ok, I just dressed up a prehistoric family for the Holidays! ahah!! Aren’t they soooo adorable and cute?!?
First of all I stamped, colored and die cut all the images. The Prehistoric Pals set is one of my fave! I also added some festive accessorizes from another set I had in my stash and a little banner.
I die cut a stitched circle out of white cardstock and I created a coordinated card base; Then I pick a one size smaller circle die and use them to create the little brown frame.

I masked the bottom of my white circle pane and inked up a cloudy sky, then i masked the top and finished my background with some grass.
I glued down all the elements with a combo of liquid glue and foam adhesive, then stamped my sentiments ( soo punny!) and finished with the frame.

I love how this little card turned out, it makes me smile and giggle so much! ihih!

"The Christmas Serie 2018"- Day 20": cute cards/ornaments with Lawn Fawn!

Hello there! 
Today I'm up on the Lawn Fawnatics blog with a couple of fun holiday projects inspired by the current challenge " Winter Holidays"! 


It's been a magical year at Lawn Fawnatics for me and I can't wait for all the new adventures and happiness 2019 will bring! 
So for today I thought it would have been fun going back in 2017 when I first made a project for Lawn Fawnatics as a guest...Did you remember my mini snowglobe cards?! I love them so much! 
Btw I was inspired by them to create these new cards...


I called them cards/ornaments cause the little snowglobes actually come off the cards pretty easily so you can add them to the Christmas tree as little paper decors! 


To make these I used a lots of Lawn Fawn products.. first of all thereally Rainbow Christmas paper!
I die cut my snowglobe out of these beautiful holidays patterned paper, and also die cut all the other elements from the Ready, Set, Snow Shaker add on set from white cardstock.
I colored the snowy sky with some Distress Ink blue shades and then I stamped, colored and die cut all the critters. 
I also used some Lawn fawn inks for the little mistletoes and the pretty bows: the Jalapeno and Guava colors.


I glued everything together and added some details with a white gel pen here and there. 

These cute hedgehogs from the Hedgehugs set are soo cute and the seals from the Sealed with love one are the perfect Christma couple!! ihih!
I kept my card bases pretty simple but I decorated them with some sparkle red twine and 2 stripes of another patterned paper that mathces well my colors, always from the Rainbow Christmas pad.


Hope you like my festive projects and thank you so much for stopping by today!
