Angels we have heard on high

Hello everybody! How are you? Are you ready for Christmas? I thought I was, but I figured out I am not quite ready just yet... I have already bought most of my presents, but I am still missing a few bits of this and that. I was going to get them over the weekend, because we were planning to do some Christmas shopping, but then it was raining heavily, so we stayed at home. Maybe we'll go next week - we'll see.

I'm back with another card for Magnolia-licious. If you haven't yet, do join our challenge here. You can win amazing prize. ;)

Again I used the super cute Flying angel Tilda stamp - I just couldn't resist. lol


For this card I used some pretty papers from Kaisercraft and different laces, pearl string and crystals from my stash as embellishments.



I coloured Tilda with distress inks (pads).



Flowers (poinsettias) were made with Foamiran. This was the first time I used it and I love it! I can see my new addiction. lol I did fail the first couple of times, but at the end I did get the result I wanted and I am really happy with how my poinsettias look like. :) Besides all the cute Magnolia products you can also get Foamiran at Magnolia-licious store. Do check it out!

So much from me today. You might want to take a peek at this blog again on Friday. Just saying... ;)

Have a great day! xx

Fun with penguins

Hey there! I'm back with another Christmas card. 


Once again I kept the design of my card pretty simple. This time I played with adorable penguin stamps from The greeting farm. For the background I used white cardstock on which I stamped some snowlakes from the same set as those penguins and embossed them with gold embossing powder. The sentiment is a TGF stamp as well. I finished the card with a couple of sequins and tiny pearls.


Have a wonderful day! xx

Winter angel

Hey hey! I told you I'd be back soon. ;) I'm so excited to share with you my news... I'm now part of Magnolia-licious design team. Woohoo! I was SO happy when I got the news. Happy, happy, happy! :D Shawn has LOTS of Magnolia goodies in the store, but that's not all, they are also selling Maja design papers (you know how much I love these), Foamiran and other awesome things so it's definitely worth checking the store out.

Today is my first card I made as part of this design team. I made it for the challenge that just started at Manolia-licious blog. I hope you will come play with us!

I used one of the older Magnolia stamps. This Flying angel Tilda was one of my first Magnolia stamps and it's still one of  my favourites, escpecially for making Christmas card.


I used gorgeous papers from Maja design that are for sale in Magnolia-licious store and some red "ribbed cardstock" (I'm not sure that's the right name) for the stars. I decorated the card with some lace and homemade enamel dots.

I coloured the image with distress inks.


And here's the side view of my card.


I hope you will come play with us and do check Magnolia-licious store for some great deals. :)

Have a wonderful day! xx

Show some bling

Heya! Woohoo, it's December. Finally! Let the fun begin! He he. Have you decorated your place and bought all the presents yet? If it was up to me I'd have all the decorations up on December 1, but not everybody is crazy about this idea, so we're decorating our house next weekend. As for the Christmas gifts goes, I have already bought most of them. I just need a few bits and will probably get those next Saturday. And then it's wrapping time. Yay! :D

So, in the spirit od the sparkliest month of the year we have a "Show some bling" challenge for you over The Sketchy Challenges blog. You can use glitters, crystals... Super easy challenge, right? So come on, come play with us.

I made another CAS card for this challenge.


Again I used one of the adorable elves from MFT and another sentiment stamp from Hobby Lobby. I did the colouring with pencils and Promarkers.


On the white part of the hat I used some liquid applique. I covered the sentiment with diamond Stickles.


Snowflakes were made with my craft punch and I glued a small crystal in the center of every one of them.

I hope you'll come play with us. Talk to you really soon (with some news!!!). :) Have a wonderful day! xx

The magic of Christmas

Hello there! Wow, can you believe we are already in the middle of November? Just a bit over a month and Christmas will be here. I'm so excited! This year I'm actually on top of things with Christmas cards and presents - I can't believe it! lol I still need to make a few more cards (2 or 3) and there are still bits of this and that that I need to buy, but most of the things are already bought or at least ordered. Are you ready for Christmas to come?

Today I want to share another Christmas card I made. 


I just love these cute elves from MFT and I think they are just perfect for CAS cards. I did the colouring with pencils and Promarkers and I added some liquid applique on the white parts of the hat. 


I really like the sentiment on this card; it is a Hobby Lobby stamp. I embossed it with gold embossing powder.

Happy holidays

Hello there! How are you doing? Did you have a nice Halloween? Did you do anything special on the scariest night of the year? We don't really celebrate Halloween here so it was just an ordinary day for us.

Now that the spooky holiday is behind us we can concentrate on Christmas. Yay! :D Have you done any Christmas shopping yet? I have already bought some presents, but not all. And for a change I am also on track with my Christmas cards this year - score! I'm about to show you the most recent one I made. This forthnight we have a sletch challenge at The sketchy challenges and the ard I am going to show you was made as inspiration for this challenge.



As you can see I decided to make another card in non-traditional colours. The papers I used are from Lawn Fawn and I really like them. The adorable snowman is a Stamping Bella stamp. I did the colouring with pencils. I embellished the card with some lace, crystals, sequins and "happy holidays" metal charm.


I hope you will come play with us. Have a wonderful day!
