Summer Ladies

Today I have three cards for you instead of usual one. Why?

Beautiful new release at Conie Fong Art & Design :)

I tried my hardest to make all three cards different, so... different colour scheme, different layout on each of them.

Meet Summer Bride




I decided to make this card in pink/white colour combo to have a chance to use pale pink handmade paper I found hidden deep in my stash :) 
So... simple card design, only 3 layers of paper, piece of ribbon, image and sentiment distressed and shaded on edges with pencils plus bit of glitter glue.
This card turned out sooo delicate in look, exactly as I wanted.

Meet Summer Blossom



Plan for this card was: I want it look kinda shaby chic/vintage, so...
Here we have turquoise, beige, olive and gold. I used 3 patterned papers, piece of ribbon and twine bow for nice feminine finish.
Total fave of my man :)

Meet Summer Dreams



For this sweet image I choose silver/blue colour combo. I coloured image with 2 shades of blue and silver and decided to be rather minimalistic if I can say that :) I choose 2 papers: bold light blue and kinda steel blue floral paper, layered them on silver mirri card, image and sentiment I shaded with pencils and also layered on silver mirri. To balance whole design I add piece of white lace on the bottom of the card.

What do you think about images? 
Like them? 
Want all of them? 

Hope you like my newest creations :)

Till next post friends!

Dom is colouring

Today I'll show you something made... not by me :)

As most of you possibly already know (from previous posts) I have 5 years old son Dominik. He loves colouring and card making too.

So... today some of his works :)


His versions of image called: Superhero TV from Sasayaki Glitter: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/536724785/image-68-superhero-tv-sasayaki-glitter?ref=shop_home_active_6.


This cute caterpillar is  from colouring pages I found on pinterest (Dom is huge fan of Spicebush Swollowtail caterpillar ;) ).


Here his Snowy from Conie Fong Art & Design, image you can find here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/265611623/digital-stamp-digi-stamp-snowy-delivery?ref=shop_home_active_71.


This picture is cooperation with his Daddy :). Daddy was drawing and Dom was colouring - talented boys ;)


Here Father's Day card - Dom is kinda addicted to mermaids :) Stamp used here belongs to Mermaid Wishes set - free gift added to issue 171 of Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine.

I love his colouring and I'm happy everytime he join me in colouring/cardmaking challenges.

That's all for today :)

Christmas in June???

Hands up if you are not thinking or already making Christmas cards my dear crafting friends!

I do think and also make :)

Today my first Christmas card this year with cute image created by Conie Fong.

Meet Snowy!!!



For today's project I choose shades of blue and silver on the image and in papers.

I coloured Snowy with pencils, shaded edges with blue pencil and layered on silver mirri card and add dash of glitter glue on corners. Patterned papers (2 different shades of blue) and sentiment I also layered on silver mirri card. For finishing touches I add bit of glitter glue on stars on sentiment and placed double bow (white/light blue) near Snowy.

What do you think about my Pinguiny card?

Olimpic Challenge at The Wonderful World of Alicia Bel

This month challenge at Alicia's FB group gave me some thinking, really...

Normally we have 2 stamps to choose between, this time.. total freestyle if I can use that term :) We can use any of Alicia's digis basically.

I was browsing Alicia's digis few times before I decided which of them I want add to my digi collection and which of them I'll use on my new card (check Alicia's shop here:
 https://www.aliciabel.com/index.php).

After days of thinking I choose image called: Feather Fans (link here: https://www.aliciabel.com/index.php?id_product=3&controller=product&id_lang=1).


Simple colouring with pink and lavender pencils on fans plus green eyes and brown hair for this little sexy girl, 3 patterned papers in matching colours, all layered on gold mirri card plus few yuta flowers with gold gems, piece of rustic style ribbon and twine bow for finishing touch.

I like how this card turned out :)

What do you think about my newest creation?

Till next post friends!

Metal babe

Shame I found out KennyK stamps soooo late... their shop is closing down with end of this month... so if you are interested in digi stamps with twist for any occasion just go here:
 http://www.kennykstamps.com/.

Today's project - not only for metal music fans :)


Image I choose today is called simply: Metal babe.
On my card I decided to use few layers of distressed square paper pieces with blue and red patterns. Image and sentiment edges I distressed and lightly shaded with pencils.
For extra touch I added splashes of glitter glue on my Babe hair, guitar and jewellery ;)

Hope you like it :)

Till next post friends!

ATC? What is it?

Few days ago I heard about ATC cards... I was like: What is it? Kind of card? But... What exactly?

If you never heard about them, here you can find some info:  https://www.strathmoreartist.com/cards-atc.html.

What I love about this cards? Answer: you can use anything you have (eg. scraps papers), any technique (eg. mixed media) you wish to make miniature masterpiece - really!

Only rule: size - 2.5 x 3.5 inches. Rest depends from your creativity, your imagination :)

I have lots of scraps, so I thought: Why not try? Results? Check below :)


'Butterflies' - my first ATC :) 

I used scrap of green paper which was used for die-cutting butterfies before. I decided to cut this piece to ATC card size, then stamped sentiment on it and placed on piece of white cardstock scrap which I shaded with pencils and stamped in green with little butterflies. To finish my little card I used some glitter glue here and there and added die-cut butterfly, which I shaded with pencils and glittered a bit.


'Birthday' - one more try with ATC. 

Glittery, pinky grey little piece with sweet image called : Bella with gift from Conie Fong Art and Design (you can find this cutie here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/525401205/digital-stamp-digi-stamp-digistamp-bella?ref=shop_home_active_12).
To be honest with you I was thinking few good weeks what to do with this image as I coloured and cut it out few months ago... She is perfect birthday girl :) And here I found idea and solution for my crafty dilemma :) I shaded piece of white card with lavender pencil and stamped it with 'happy birthday' sentiment, then added piece of torn patterned paper, scrap of white ribbon and prepared image. To finish it I used bit of glitter glue to give it a little sparkle :)

I love ATC cards me :) I saw some proper masterpieces on net - just check Pinterest or Google it - you'll be surprised!

Hope you like my attempts :)

Till next post friends!

Cards with cute lizards :)

Cute lizards? - you could ask... Oh yes my friends - cute lizards!

If you are with me for little bit, you saw my cards with images created by Naz from Sasayaki Glitter, so...

Today I have for you card which I made for June Progressive Challenge at Sasayaki's FB group with image called: Dancing Lizards. You can find this image here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/520186476/image-61-dancing-lizards-by-sasayaki?ref=shop_home_active_12


I decided to make simple grey/pink Anniversary card today with only one patterned paper. For layering I used silver mirri card. Image and sentiment I distressed with scissors and shaded lightly with pink pencil, added bow from pink organza ribbon and few lavender gems.

Below my son's creation :)


He decided to join me today :)
As you can see, Dom decided use only one patterned paper for his card, for extra touch he choose piece of pink organza ribbon and some gems in pink and green.

What do you think about our today's cards?
