Clean & Simple card using MFT

Image
Hi everyone!

It's been a while since I had time to create or even to do a blog post . Now that the boys started school and kindergarten felt so good to be back and to be creative again .

For today I've created a clean and simple card to match the theme from MFT - Card Design Superstar Clean and Simple genius 
I was so happy to see that this year the contest is going on again as I was looking forward some inspiration and motivation to be back on creating :)

So here is the card that I made and if you have been following me for a while you may noticed that Clean & Simple is not really my strong point :) But I love how this card turned out , and I hope you do too


To create this card I used some photo paper and my Spectrum Noir markers to create the background and let me tell you that creating alcohol ink backgrounds is so addictive that I could make them for all my cards . Plus I think that gives the card a fantastic look and you really don't need to do much else to have a…

Hello everyone!
I am stopping quick today to share the card that I've create inspired by the current Lawn Fawnatics challenge Spectacular skies

I started inking the panel first the sky and the using a cloud stencil that I made myself by die cutting the Puffy clouds border from Lawn Fawn and Yeti ink

Then I coloured various images from Mermaid for you stamp set and You are sublime set using Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and add them to the panel.

To add a bit of interest I also added a piece of vellum on the bottom part of the card and some of the images are behind and some are in front of the vellum

Thank you for stopping by ! Have a great day!

Hi everyone

I am stopping by today to share with you the card that I made for Thyroid Awareness Month Blog hop organised by Milka Gubo

Not sure if you knew but January is Thyroid Awareness Month and the purpose of this blog hop is to raise awareness about Thyroid diseases and problems . Milka was so sweet to organised this blog and she gathered 26 designers all over the world that will share their creations starting from 5th January till 30th January .




Here is the card that I've created inspired by the fact that the Thyroid looks like a butterfly , I took the Butterflies stamp set from Avery Elle and colored using Spectrum Noir markers.

Next I glue the larger butterfly on my panel which was die cut using Create a smile Scalloped rectangles dies and after that I took the Twice the Hugs die cut from My Favorite things and die cut into the panel. Also die cut the same die several times from white cardstock and stack them together to create dimension.


I've then glued the pieces ba…

You're cool card using Lawn Fawn stamps

Hi everyone!

Playing along with Lawn Fawnatics challenge and sharing this card that I've made using some of the stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn

For my card I was inspired by the beautiful photo that was an inspiration for the challenge and I started by die cutting the panel using Snowy Backdrop and the inking it using Distress inks.

Next I die cut two hills using Forest border die and from one of them I cut out the trees so it looks like a hill.


Last I stamped and colored the images from Wild for you stamp set using Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and then fussy cut them !

The sentiment is from Snow cool stamp set and for a bit of variation I stamped the ''you're'' part using a black ink and ''cool'' is stamped on vellum using Versa Mark ink and white embossing powder.

Birthday card using Avery Elle stamps

Image
Hello everyone!
Alexandra here today to share with you this card that I made combining several products from different companies to create a fun birthday card 
For my card today I started by stamping the images from Party palls stamp set  from Avery Elle and color them using Spectrum Noir alcohol markers .

Then I took the Craftin Desert divas  Crazy stitched frames dies and die cut the main panel for the card and then took distress inks Mermaid lagoon and Chipped sapphire and created the background.

I started first using Mermaid lagoon with a light hand and because I wanted to add a bit of interest to the background I took a stencil from Create a smile stamps called Big stars Polka 
Once the background turned out as I wanted I added the images using foam tape and  adhered all the images , also added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins  and my card was done!
Thank you so much for stopping by today ! As my term as DT girl for Butterfly Reflection is at the end this will be my last card :(
