Holiday Card Series 2016 – Peace Joy & Love


Hello guys!

It seems like furry friends are ready for Christmas so let’s get crafty and make more cards for the Holiday Season! And here’s what I came up with today for my Holiday Card Series 2016.

sss-peace-love-joy-2016-1Nothing too fancy this time, just a little bit of copic coloring on the cute critters from Simon Says Stamp’s Furry Christmas Friends stamp set that was combined with Mama Elephant’s Polaroid Fun dies. Don’t you think that these stamps and dies were made to go together! I personally adore the versatile products!!!


As well as I adore cute and fun critters because they can help you give a personalized touch to the card so easily. Just make them look like the recipient’s ones and I assure you that both success and smile are guaranteed. And it doesn’t matter to be super precise and realistic in your coloring.

If you need more inspiration, please, check also Simon Says Stamp’s Wednesday Challenge blog as this card is also my entry to their current challenge.

That’s all for today! As always thanks so much for stopping by! I really appreciate your love and support!

Holiday Card Series 2016 – Be Joyful (ft. Create A Smile)


Happy Friday!

Here’s another holiday card as well as another idea how to stretch your craft supplies.

I’m so happy every time I manage to come up with a creative idea and I’m so excited to share it with you. If you follow my blog, you’d probably notice that I’m fond of critters and often tend to make cards with them. But sometimes I try to step away from my comfort zone and make something different because not all people love critters. So this card is definitely more “classic” looking as it features the flowers.


And here’s what I’m came up with this time. Starting from the spring stamp set Crokisses designed by Create A Smile and coloring the images with traditional Christmas red shades, I transformed the flowers into winter looking ones. A sort of amaryllis. Botanically speaking they, of course, look different, but card making is an art and not a science so I’m totally happy how they came out.


To tie everything together I added a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp’s Big Scripty Greetings Holiday set stamping it first with a red dye ink and then another time on top with Versamark so that I could add some shimmer and sparkle with heat embossing. Finally the card was embellished with a red twine and some sequins just for something extra.


That is pretty much all for today. The last thing I’d like to mention is that this card is my entry to the Create A Smile October challenge – “Embellish”.


Hope this project will inspire you to make a Christmas card using some flowers that, I know, are dying in your stash during winter months!

As always thanks so much for stopping by and leaving me nice comments! I really appreciate your support!

Holiday Card Series 2016 – Santa’s Elf (ft. MFT Stamps)


Hello guys!

I’m back with another card from my Holiday Card Series 2016. I finally got my hands on the adorable Santa’s Elves stamp set from My Favorite Things and just could not resist to play with it.


Inspired by the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge, I decided to play with Christmas ornaments. My idea was to create a Christmas ball shape out of a circle die for the card front and then add a little cute Elf with a Christmas ball in his hand inside the circle.


I kept everything pretty simple and let the main focus be on the copic colored elf that I put against a light gray card stock for more contrast. All other colors are so traditionally Christmas as well as shimmer and sparkle touches. I believe that there would be no Christmas without Wink of Stella? Right!? 😉


That’s all for today! If you have any question, leave it in the comment area below. I will be happy to answer you! As always thanks so much for stopping by! I really appreciate it a lot!

Hello Fall – Autumn & Halloween Card Series


Happy Friday to everyone!

Today I’m sharing another autumn feeling watercolor card. The adorable bear is from the last Stamptember collaboration between Simon Says Stamp and Newton’s Nook Designs. Unfortunately this stamp set is not available any more, but I like it so much that I just couldn’t let it die in my stash.


I broke down once more my Mijello Mission Gold watercolors, but after the initial layer of watercoloring, I added some details and shading with color pencils. The fish-tail banner was watercolored too so that it could match perfectly the red I used on some autumn leaves.


As always I added some little extra accents to embellish my card: sequins, white gel pen details, color water splotches, Stickles Star Dust Glitter Glue.

That’s pretty much all for today! Hope this card will inspire you! And as always thanks so much for stopping by and leaving me sweet comments! I really appreciate your support!




DIY Halloween Treats


Hello guys!

I’m so excited to share with you a fun Halloween project I came up with. It’s super simple to do and you don’t need any fancy craft supplies to recreate it! So why not! Perhaps you can make it with your children as well!

I’d like to mention that this project was inspired by a talented paper crafter Anna Kossakovskaya. I made a girlish and a boyish version of chocolate boxes since I’m going to give the treats to my little niece and nephew, but you can personalize this project even more by adding a name, for example.



First of all you gonna need a piece of card stock and a chocolate bar, of course. Take measures of your chocolate bar (width, length and heights), calculate the dimensions of the card stock you need for the project and mark the score lines on it:

Horizontally: half of your width – heights – width – heights – half of your width.

Vertically: any measure you like up to half of your length – heights – length – heights – any measure you like up to half of your length.

Make score lines as indicated on the picture below. If you don’t have a scoring board, use a simple ruler (anyone has a ruler at home, right!).halloween-box-1Now cut out 4 corners following the graphic below. And you DIY chocolate box is done.halloween-box-2Now all you have to do is to apply some embellishments and tied a twine around to close the box. On my projects I used digital stamps from Jess Crafts Digitals and a freebee digital sentiment from Newton’s Nook Designs as I could resize them to fit my box, but you definitely can use anything you have on hand: print and color any Halloween image from web, use some stickers or any other embellishment to suit your occasion.

That’s all for today! If you have any question, leave it in the comment area below! And as always thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!
