Christmas Card Invasion (Part 9)

Hello, crafting friends! Hope you're doing well. It's been a while since I last sat at my crafting table to create a Christmas card. But with the current heat wave and outside temperature over 30 degrees one can only wish of some breath of cool fresh air. So I hope the below card will help to cool this heat a little:

Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #12 - Guest Designer Post

Hi there, everyone! I'm stopping by today to share a recent creation of mine made for the current challenge over at Tic-Tac-Toe. For today's card, I chose to play with the first line in the table which is Doily, Layers & Dimensions, and Bird/Bees, Butterflies. And now, without further ado, let's get right to the card:

I've decided to make a cute little scene with some bright summer colors. The adorable Coffee Friends are a freebie from Craftin Desert Divas which I colored with Copic markers and fussy-cut so that I could place them in the middle of the summer scene. 
The background was made in 3 stages:
1. I die cut one of Marianne Designs papers and a leftover from received paper from Mavelu store with Blueprints #20 by My Favourite Things.
2. Placed them on a piece of paper colored with Spun Sugar Distress Ink.
3. Then I die cut French Pastry Doily by Cherry Lynn Designs, colored its center with distress inks and placed it on top of the design papers.
Once the main scene was complete, I stamped a sentiment using Harold's ABCs by Lawn Fawn, white heat embossed it and foam mounted it on my card to add some dimension. I placed a butterfly from Mama Elephant's stamp set on top of the second part of the sentiment and added a couple of enamel dots to finish off my card.

I guess this is it for today:) Hope you all have enjoyed this inspiration for the current challenge at Tic-Tac-Toe and got inspired to join our challenge! I would also like to thank Ka for having me as a guest for this challenge and I'll be looking forward to having a chance to create something else for one of your next challenges.

Sleeping On The Moon

Hello, crafty friends! Hopping onto the blog real quick to share the latest creation of mine made for a new bundle of joy that joined my colleague's family a couple of days ago. For this card I've decided to put to use some supplies which I've never had a chance to have on my projects so far - a doily and paper flowers. As far as I'm concerned, I think it turned out pretty well. And now, without further ado, let's get right to the card:

Gerda Steiner June Challenge - Picnic Penguin

Hello, crafty friends! I'm stopping by today to share a recent creation of mine which was inspired by June image from Gerda Steiner's Monthly Progressive Challenge. When I first saw this little penguin with a picnic basket, I couldn't decide what kind of card I should create to make it to stand out from all other cards which are going to be submitted for this months challenge. I'd been thinking of creating a scene with this cutie having fun somewhere outside among lots of beautiful flowers or having a picnic with one of his buddies, but wasn't truly satisfied with those ideas. I'd been wondering what scene to come up with until I saw "Alien Invasion" stamp set in my drawer. And then it struck me what kind of card I needed to create for this challenge. So here is what I came up with:

I hope you've enjoyed today's card! Have a nice day and thanks for stopping by!

Snuggle Friends

Hi there, everyone! It's been a while since I last participated in MFT Sketch Challenge and used their stamps as a focal point. That's why this week I've decided to turn to one of my recently purchased MFT stamp sets "Snuggle Bunnies". Since I was very short of time, I created a simple, yet bright and cheerful card. So here is what I came up with:
