Valentine's day treat boxes

Image
Hello everyone

It's been a while since sharing here , but I wanted to show you some fun treat boxes that I made for my boys for the upcoming Valentine's day . I'm not that much into creating projects for Valentine's day , but this year i'm going to make a twist on it an all my projects for Valentine's day will be teal / aqua or blue :)


I find that I could so easily use the cards/projects for different occasions not just for Valentine's day. Also the inspiration for today's project came from the new challenge from Lawn Fawnatics - Something old , something new which let's face it we all have some unused dies or stamps that are patiently waiting for us to use them :)


So way back when I was a newbie in crafting and way before I knew that dies exist I was buying magazines where you would get templates for all kind of projects :) from there are the triangles that are the treat boxes here on my project. I really love that you can glue them together and ju…

MFT Superstar contest Innovation Master

Hello everyone !

Finally I was able to finish my last card for the Superstar Contest from MFT and for this category i managed to create another scene and i hope you like it


For this card I started by cutting a piece of cardstock at 25cm long and 13cm wide then to have a guide on where to stamp my critters i marked the paper at 1cm , 5cm , 9cm , 13cm, 17cm and 21cm. After that the fun beginned . I started stamping and masking the critters in order to create my scene


 This step took a while but totally worth it as the scene was slowly starting to take shape.



Once everything was ready I had to cut some masks for the water and hills so i took a piece of paper and draw some shapes which then i cut using my scissors .


Using inks I started ink blending the background and i'm really happy with how it turned out .Cause i wanted to add some more details i went ahead and added a few splatters of white paint .


The most fun part was to take off all the masking tape and see how my scene turned …

MFT Superstar contest Coloring virtuoso

Hi everyone


As you can tell by the title and playing along again with MFT Superstar contest and here is my card for Coloring Virtuoso


Now I have to say I was pretty hesitant to play along in this category as I don't think that my coloring skills are so out of this world , but you know what I sat at my desk and started coloring and really enjoyed doing it . And the final result made me happy so I guess is a win win situation :)


Also getting out of my comfort zone with this card as I normally make A2 cards but this time I decided to create a whole scene and also making a one layer card .


So I picked the cute critters from Jungle Gym stamp set from MFT and started stamping them using MFT Black licorice hybrid  ink and then started creating mask for every image , as I was planning to ink blend the background.


I wanted to create a soft background, to have the images the star of the show and I also added some white paint splatters and a few clouds that I made with a q tip and a white i…

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!
