"Let it snow" with Hello Bluebird!

Hello there and happy wednesday! 
Today i'm up on the Hello Bluebird blog with a festive mini interactive card feat the Frosty Freinds set.
Grab a cup of coffee and take a look :)







































I'm in love with this set, it's full of Festive/Xmas/Winter happiness!!
I already created some pretty tags with all the other characters ( u can find them *here*) so for today i gave this little guy all my attention! 
First of all i created my pattern paper by stamping the Cosy Plaid Background in black on to red cardstock ( i'm obsessed with this combo, it's my favorite for Christmas season!) 
Then i created my shadow box ( using the Lawn Fawn die), added white snowy hills and a kraft background.







































I stamped, colored and die cut all the images, i assembled the box and i glued all the elements.
Be sure to draw your snowy background on the kraft background before assembling the box cause i didn't do it and it was not that easy after that, i can tell! ahah! 







































Finally it was time to sparkle!! I added some glue on to the hill borders and sprinkled some chunky glitters by Lawn Fawn. The effect is amazing, love it! 


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

Hoppy Birthday card with Heffy Doodle!

Hi there!
Today i'm up on the Heffy Doodle Blog with a birthday themed card.




Wish I have a carrot cake glazed with chocolate right now! ihih!!
First of all I created my card base out of white cardstock, then i stamped, colored and die cut all the images .
The little birthday bunny is from the Honey Bunny Boo set and my carrot cake is from the Paty Palooza set, it's so much fun combining them all to create happy scenes!



I masked the bottom of the card and i inked up the top to create a light green background with Distress inks.
I stamped my sentiment from the Everyday Sentiment Duos set and i glued down all the images with foam tape.



Finally i added some sequins and details with a white gel pen.
Hope you like my card and thank you so much for stopping by today!

Fall sliding window card for Sunny Studio!

Hi there ad happy wednesday! 
Today i'm up on the Sunny Studio blog with a fun card feat the Sliding Window set.





Making interactive cards is so easy and simple with this set, it's the best ever! 
First of all i die cut all the elements to create my mechanism out of some white cardstock and this great pattern paper from the Preppy Prints pad.
Then i stamped, colored and die cut all the images.



I created my background on the front mini panel with Distress inks and i glued down all the images with foam tape and liquid glue.
Little scenes likes this makes me so happy!! 
I glued my mechanism on to my main card ( made out of white cardstock) I slide it a little bit and i stamped the sentiment ( so that it will show up everytime the sliding mechanism is active!).



I glued down my mini panel to the card and be sure to put the glue and adhere it only on the bottom! 
Finally i added some details with a white gel pen and i also glued down a little heart at the top ( that is die cut out of the same pattern paper used before).
I hope you like it too and thank you so much for stopping by today. 
See you soon with a new project feat the New Release ( that's awesome, i can tell!!)
Also be sure to stay tuned cause the Sunny Studio Birthday celebration will start soon and there'll be lots of surprises!!

"More that s'mores" exclusive limited edition set by HD for SSS - Stamptember event!

Hello there and welcome back to my blog! 
Today i'm happy to showcase the new exclusive limited edition set by Heffy Doodle for Simon Says Stamp: More than s'mores! 



Finally my set has arrived and as promised, here's some inspiration for u :)


I went for a fall themed card with that cute deer cause the first thing i tought was my color combo: i wanted to combine rich shades of oranges and browns.
First of all i created my pattern paper by inking some white cardstock with the Spiced Marmealde distress ink oxide, i let it dry and then i stamped it with the Cosy Plaid Background by Hello Blueburd.


I stamped all the images and i also added the speech bubble from the Whatcha sayin' set by HD.
I colored evertyhing with my copics and i cut them out - coordinated dies are avaiable too, but i didn't have them.
I created my cardbase out of white cardstock and lightly inked it up with the same orange ink used before. I cut out 2 stripes out of my handmade pattern paper and i glued them dow. 
I positioned all the other element and as i was happy with them i stamped/colored my sentiments.




I glued down all the images with a combo of liquid glue and foam tape and i added some details with a white gel pen.
Finally i glued down some sparkling clear sequins by Pretty Pink Posh to finish up my card.

Be sure to check the exclusive set *here* there are some left in stock :)



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

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 37!

Hello there and happy monday! 
It's time for a new Challenge at Lawn Fawnatics and this time is all about: "something old, something new"! 


I combined my new Holiday Helpers set with my ( also new to me, ops!) Snow Day set to create a pretty and cute festive card, here's it!

 These new cuties are adorable and i can't wait to create more with them! 
First of all i die cut my panel with a dotted rectangle die, then i inked up my background to create a night sky look and i let it aside to dry.
Then i also lightly inked some hills at the bottom to create a snowy hills landscape.

 I stamped, colored and cut out all the images and i created a coordinated card base in white cardstock.
I glued down all the element creating a fun scene on the outside and on the inside too, just a little surprise, ihih! 
I embossed my sentiment on the outside and stamped the inside one in black. 

Finally i added some details with a white gel pen and the card is complete!



I'm so super happy about how it turned out, hope u like it too and thank you so much for stopping by today.
