"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!
Please enjoy my Cardmaking Adventure on * Instagram*! I'll be posting all my little cards,tags and i also can't wait to see all the projects shared in the community! :)

Have an amazing day!

"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!

"The Christmas Serie 2018"- Day 21": Rustic Winter with Sunny Studio!

Hi there and welcome back to my Christmas serie!! 
Today I'm up on the Sunny Studio blog with an elegant Christmas card featuring the Rustic Winter set.


I love this set of dies so much, these woodland reindeers are so beautiful! 
I love keeping them white and make them pop against a dark/ bright background but you could totally die cut them from kraft/brown cardstock or cut them out of white and color them with different mediums and techniques.

To make my card I first created my cardbase out of white cardstock, I masked the bottom and inked up the sky with Distress inks. I let them dry and I created a snowy sky effect with watercolors.


I die cut all the elements from white cardstock and I glued them down with a combo of liquid glue and foam adhesive ( to build dimension and give my little scene way more interest!).

Finally I stamped the word "Christmas" from the Alpaca Holiday set with a brown ink and added a little sparkle red heart.

"The Christmas Serie 2018"- Day 19": It's sweater weather time, with Sunny Studio!

Hi there and happy monday! 
Today i'm up on the Sunny Studio blog with a festive card feat the Sweater Vest Dies set.





This set is so cute and it creates the cutest little sweater shaped cards ever!!
I decided to pair it with the Foxy Christmas set today, to have a foxy festive lovely sweater.
First of all I created my sweater card by die cutting all the elements from the Holiday Cheer paper pad, white cardstock and some red glittered cardstock; I assembled the card by gluing all the elements with liquid glue.



I stamped all the images, colored them with copics and die cut everything with their coordinated dies. I also created a little banner to stamp my sentiment on and I glued everything down with foam adhesive.
Finally I added some white details on to the little foxes and also on the patterned paper to add interest and dimension.
I love so much this fun and festive card, I planned to give this to my mom!

"The Christmas Serie 2018"- Day 18": 'Tis the Season with Hello Bluebird!


Hello there and happy monday! 

Today I'm up on the Hello Bluebird blog with a fun card feat the new Frosty Littles set! 



These winter cuties are adorable and they make me dream about a snowy Christmas!!
First of all I die cut a stitched rectangle and created a coordinated card base all out of white cardstock.


I stamped the large festive sentiment from the Tis the season set on the center and then I created my snowman pattern all around it.
I let my black copic ink dry completely and I had fun coloring all these winter cuties.
I also added a light blue border to all the images to add interest and dimension to my simple design.


Finally I added some details with a white gel pen and a bunch of sparkling clear sequins. 
I'm so happy about how this turned out and It's also a kind of one layer card so perfect to mail for the Holidays!

"The Christmas Serie 2018"- Day 16": a Skating Party Clock with Hello Bluebird!

Hello there and welcome back to my festive serie! 
Today I'm so excited to show my projects: I just found the most clean and simple clock at Ikea and decorated with some cuties from the Skating Party lates released set by Hello Bluebird! 


Isn't it cute?!
This clock comes all in white so first of all I painted all the number in dark blue and signed them with a little rectangle of kraft cardstock.


Then I created my center piece and decorated with all these cuties. The little penguin is my fave, it seems like he's doing figure skating! 
Btw fun fact about me.. I love skating and as I child I did a little bit of figure skating! 

Back to my project, I finished it by adding some details with a white gel pen and I put it all together again with its clear plastic topper ( just took photos without it cause it was easier!).

Hope you like my festive piece of home decor (this would be a perfect handmade gift for Xmas!) and thank you so much for stopping by today!

"The Christmas Serie 2018"- Day 13": Happy Holidays with Heffy Doodle!

Hello there! 

This is my second post for today, please check my Day 12 of the Christmas Serie * here *, it's a festive card showcasing the Happy Owlidays set by Sunny Studio! 

Today I'm up on the Heffy Doodle blog with a couple of festive cards, scrapbook inspired! 


First of all I created my cards out of some white cardstock, and added some dry embossed details to frame the center a little bit.
Then I die cut all the elements and also stamped, colored and die cut the little snowmen.


I die cut the speeck bubble out of some kraft cardstock and stamped my sentiment. Snow Flakes Kisses.. it's adorable, isn't it?! 
I made the little envelopes out of red cardstock, cut out 2 little white banners and then I glued everything down. 
Those little elements stuck inside the festive envelope make me think about "A card in the card" design! 


Finally I added some details with a white gel pen, sequins and also stamped "holidays" just below the envelopes to complete my sentiments.
