"Woof" card with Heffy Doodle!

Hi there!
Today I'm sharing a fun friendship card inspired by the lovely Ranger (Lesley's dog!) made with all Heffy Doodle supplies!


First of all I created my cardbase out of white cardstock, then created my scene background on the front using the Square Masquerade Stencil and Distress Inks.
This was my first time playing with the stencil and it was so easy and fun! It has all the measurements impressed on so you know exactly where to place your card to have a perfect alignment.


Then I stamped all my images, colored them with my copics and die cut them out. I also stamped all my solid images with a light teal ink. For this card I combined these sets: Bold Banner + coordinated dies, Who Let the Dogs out + coordinated dies ,Yappy Happy Mail + coordinated dies and the Close At Heart Sentiment set. 


I stamped my sentimnt at the bottom and glued down all my elements down with foam adhesive. 
Then I added lots of details with a white gel pen to all my images and to my background sky too, plus some clear sequins.
I'm so happy about how this clean and simple card turned out :)
Thanks a lot for stopping by today, hope you're now inspired to create a card for one of your crafty friend, inspired by their lovely pets! 

Have a lovely day

"Hello" mini card with Time for Tea Designs!

Hi there! 
Today I'm sharing a scalloped circle mini card I made with my new Time for Tea Designs cuties! 


Aww these little critters are the best! 
First of all I die cut 2 scalloped circle out of white cardstock, stamped the sentiment and all my critters from the All Occasion Critters set, colored them with copics and cut them out with their coordinated dies. 


Then I stamped my background from the Grateful for you set on one of my scalloped circle with a light brown ink and I colored it with copics. I chose super light colors/shades and I'm so happy about how it looks! I have never achieved anything like that using copics before and it's such a soft and dreamy effect!


I backed up my panel with the other scalloped circle and turned them both into a mini card, then adhered all my images down with foam adhesive.
Finally I added lots of details with a white gel pen to my critters plus some sclear sequins and my mini card is completed!

Hope you likeit as much as I do and thank you so much for stopping by today!

'tis the Season.. with Hello Bluebird!

Hi there and happy saturday!
Today I have a Christmas card made with all Hello Bluebird stuff to share and ..I did a little bit of heat embossing too! Today's cardmaking session was on fire, I'm tellin' ya! ahah!


First I stamped, colored with copics and die cut my festive image from the Family Photo set and cut it out to feature on my card just Santa Claus, Mrs Claus, the snowman and the little robin. 
Then I created my cardbase out of white cardstock and I cut out a matching panel I inked with Distress Inks. 
I also die cut another panel and I created some snowy hills out of it, using the Hill and Dale set. 
I added some water and sparkle watercolors splatters to them all and set aside to dry.


Awww I'm so proud of me, the sentiment look so cool embossed in bright white on to my blue snowy background! Of course I prepped the area with some antistatic powder, I stamped my sentiment from the Tis the Season set with Versamark ink and I heat embossed it in white. I used the Lawn Fawn embossing powder and I can't recommend it enough, I love it!


I then die cut some snowflakes out of white cardstock, using the Frosty Flakes Die set. 
I adhered my sky panel onto my white cardbase, then added all the elements with a combo of liquid glue and foam adhesive.
Finally I stamped another sentiment at the bottom and added some white nuvo drops embellishments here and there. 

Wow, this card is a special one! 
Hope you like it and thank you so much for stopping by today!

"Halloween Hedgehog" with Hello Bluebird!

Hello there!

Halloween crafting is quickly becoming my top fave right now.. there's something about critters in custume that drives me crazy, ihih!!
So today I decided to create a "too cute to spook" project with the Little Haunters set by Hello Bluebird..



Aww how cute is this?!? 
I started with my white cardbase, as always, then I masked the front bottom and inked the top left with Distress Inks. I used Spun Sugar and Seedless preserves inks.





































I stamped, colored with copics and die cut all the images and glued them down with some foam adhesive. I stamped my sentiment and those little bats from the Spooky Script set and added some details with a white gel pen here and there onto my scene.






































Finally I added some clear sequins and I also glued some of them one on top of another for a cool design twist.. it was so much fun! I don't know why I have never thought about that before!

Hope you like my card as much as I do and thanks a lot for stopping by today!

A rainbow Christmas with Pinkfresh Studio!

Hi there and happy tuesday! 
Today I'm super happy to share a rainbow Christmas card made with all Pinkfresh Studio cuties!





















Aww look at this mum and her baby squirrels, they're a super sweet couple!! 

First of all I created my rainbow feature using thin white cardstock stripes and Distress Inks.
Lea and Laura totally inspired me and I love how my rainbow turned out :)





















Then I created my cardbase out of white cardstock and stamped this lovely frame from the Sparkle with magic set and the little snowflakes and dots from the Magical Christmas set. 
I also stamped my sentiment from the same set on the bottom and glued down my rainbow with liquid glue.

I stamped my critters from the Squirrel Friends set and also some presents from the Magical Christmas one, coloredthem with my copics and cut them out using their coordinated dies. ( As you may know the coordinated dies cut both the critters at the same time into a little scene with the sled, I just customized the cut with my scissors!)





















I glued everything down with some foam tape, added some details with a white gel pen and some clear sequins and this card is ready to wish "Merry Christmas"! 

With this project I'd love to enter the Pinkfresh Studio September 2020 Challenge ..



Hope you like my card as much as I do and you are now inspired to create!

"Hi cutie pie" card with Lawn Fawn!

Hello there! 

It's time for a new Lawn Fawnatics Challenge today and this is one of my fave..




Aww I can't wait for Fall to finally start tomorrow cause I'm so ready for it!

I hope the cold will arrive soon, I can't wait for the crisp air, the sweater weather, the color changing leaves!! 


To celebrate the new season I created this lovely card for the Thanksgiving celebration..


Aww I love these cute mice from the Thankful Mice set, they're my fave! 

I stamped, colored them with copics and die cut them and I also added this little pie from the Cutie Pie set. 



I created my cardbase out of white cardstock and I stamped the Gingham Background on the front with the Kiddie Pool Ink by Lawn Fawn.
Then I die cut 2 stripes out of kraft and white cardstock and added some dry embossed details onto the white one using the Stitched Borders set.


I stamped my sentiment at the bottom of the white stripe and glued down all my images at the top, then I glued everything down on the front of my card, at the centre.
Finally I stamped some little hearts at the top using the Lawn Fawn Guava ink.

Hope you like this card as much as I do and thanks a lot for stopping by today!

"Wishing you a wolly great Christmas" with Pink & Main!

Hello there and happy saturday!
Today I'm sharing a cosy festive card, made with all Pink & Main cuties!



Aww these little llamas!
First of all I created my carbase out of white cardstock and then I die cut 2 coordinated panel out of white and kraft cardstock. I die cut a snowy hill out of the white one and I created my background out of the kraft one using the new Mini Ergonomic Blender Brush to ink onto my Puffy Heart Stencil with some White Pigment ink.


Let me say.. that ergonomic brush is amazing! It has what seems like thousands of super soft bristles and you can achieve a beautiful result easily in no time at all! 
As you know I love creating soft background on my usual cards and that's perfect for that but even here you can see how beautifully smooth my stenciled background is.


Then I inked up my images from the Fa La LLama set, colored them with copics, added some details with a white gel pen and then cut them out. I also stamped my sentiment onto my snowy hill and then glued everything down to my cardbase.
For the background pieces I used some liquid glue, then some foam tape for my images instead.
Finally I added a little red heart at the bottom which I covered in Glossy Accents and some White Nuvo Drops here and there to mimic snow.
Hope you like my card as much as I do and you are now inspired to create!
