Wedding card

Hi everyone,
I was asked to create a wedding card for a couple who are getting married this weekend. This was a very quick made, and turned out better than I expected.

I quickly put the card base through my Cuttlebug with an embossing folder to add some texture to the background. Then stamped a heart in red ink from a set by Waltzing mouse. I cut the heart out and added to the card on foam adhesive with some twine put through and tied in a bow.
My sentiment if from Misskatecuttables and is cut out with my eCraft.

Have a nice weekend,

Challenge time!!! 2 Cute Ink

Hello all,
Today is a very exciting day. First cos I 'm going on holidays, second there is a challenge over on 2 Cute Ink blog. Head over and check how to get free digital stamps.

Check out what I created with this Owl Doodle stamps. I had this black notebook that I wanted to spice up a little bit.
So I coloured the owl and cut it out. I didn't use all parts of the image.

I used Studio Calico papers, layered them and adhered onto the notebook. Washi tapes and a few stickers were enough embellishments. I wanted to keep it flat, so it won't come apart when I carry it in my handbag.

I added a sentiment sticker and some alpha stickers to say: Put on a smile, Wise Owl!!

Aquarium Card - 2 Cute Ink

Hi everyone, today I am going to show you a quick and fun tutorial on how I created this "aquarium card".

A few things you will need:
Angel Fish Digital Stamp
blue cardstock
piece of acetate

Cut a piece of card stock 4x12 inch. Score it at 4, 4 1/8 and 3 7/8. Cut a window out of the card stock as show in the picture.

Print the Angel Fish twice and only colour one in.

Fussy cut the colored fish out and the other one needs to be cut to match the size of the card.

Place foam adhesive on the coloured fish and adhere it on the other printed fish.

Colour the piece of acetate with alcohol inks

Assemble the card: glue the acetate on the back of the window; glue the panel with the fish on the side that is behind the window. 

You can add white card stock inside for you message.

I hope you liked this idea,

10 Minute Craft Dash

I was reading a friend's blog where I saw this 10 minute Craft Dash. Since I am soo happy that I have finished my last assignment for college, I am full of crafty ideas. So I though I give this 10  minute challenge a go.
You can find the challenge here at Pretty Pink Posh. The theme is birthday to celebrate that the 10 minute Craft Dash challenge is a year old.
Here I go, one card less then ten minute!
If you know me, you would know that I am not a fast crafter. I like to add more and more details and then everything just takes ages.
So this is the card I created in less than 10 minutes, here's the proof:

and my card:

not bad, considering that I had only 10 minutes for creating. I used a few techniques: stamping, stenciling, masking... The stamp is from Waltzing Mouse.

So Happy Birthday to 10 Minute Craft Dash, I'm sure I will take part in this challenge again!!

Birthday card - Tiddly inks

I have this card for a friends birthday. I tried to make it very simple for two reasons: 1. this is her style, 2. too dimensional card won't fit into the envelop.
I coloured this image in and just layered onto patterned and glossy paper.

The sentiment is another Tiddly Inks digi stamp, I merged the two in Photoshop.

back to colouring images...

Recently I got some stamps, older ones, but I really enjoyed colouring them in with Promarkers.
I really like this image from Wild Rose Studio, it is from 2010 and discontinued. After colouring it in I just threw some papers and embellishments together and made a card with it.

I think I am going to do more colouring it is so relaxing :) it doesn't mean I 'm going to give up my scrapbook pages though...

Creative Scrappers #243 - around Scotland

Hi, here's another layout I created last night. I followed the sketch from Creative Scrappers #243.

This is my take on it

It was a really fun sketch to work with. I rotated it and included three photos instead of one bigger one.
I used Echo Park Papers, flair button and chipboard camera and arrow from Scrapfellow, and chipboard alphas from Pink Paislee.

The new sketch reveal is out now, let's see what I can create with that...

Thanks for visiting,
