Parties and Festivals

Hello everyone. We have terrible weather today here. I looks that all buckets are pouring from heaven. Time to stay at home and do some creative crafting! I have some projects to share today! A lot! :0)
Docrafts sponsored our 
Parties and Festival 
challenge with Beckie at Daring Cardmakers.

The Edinburgh festival is in full swing up here and there is loads to see and do, bright colours and vintage scenes fill the streets as the street entertainers preform for passers by.
So I'd like to see anything to do with Parties and Festivals on your card.

Come to play and you can win this fantastic prize :

My designs :

My first card uses combination of new Docrafts Pipinwood Christmas linen paper collection and Docrafts Papermania Christmas in The Country Urban stamps.

Hope that you will like Pipinwood Christmas pattern papers designed by Andrea Jayne as much as I do! Love the owls pattern paper!
My second card is bit about heat embossing. I stamped and then heated Docrafts Papermania sentiment with white embossing powder on red cardstock and die cut using Spellbinder standard circles. Adhered die cut toppers stripes from Pipinwood collection at the bottom of my card. It's so quick and easy!

Third card has the most cute Christmas topper with the little forest animals sitting on the tree branch. I adore them! For embellishing I played with Docrafts Papermania assorted pastel buttons and Hobby Craft Christmas paper flower.

My table pocket was created just for this challenge showing you that Christmas pattern papers can be used not only on cards but although on fabric! I upcycled a pocket from old trousers. Embellished with lace and Docrafts Red Stripe Christmas Ribbon. It came together so quickly! 

I love Xcut Large Balloons Dies.They cut through paper, cardstock and PVA. Fantastic for creating Happy Birthday or Party Celebration cards! 

Hope that you have nice afternoon!

In Mediterranean Sea

Hello my dear friends. I am back from my summer holidays. We spoilt ourselves in the largest island of Greece Crete.
The weather was fantastic - melting hot everyday :0) Our small hotel beach had the most crystal clean water I've ever seen. Because we both like adventure we hired a quad bike and visited some beautiful romantic towns and villages. Tasted traditional Greek cosine. Mmm, I miss our afternoon frappes in Agios Nicolaos.  
Than we decided to go farther and went to cruise to the Spinalonga Island. An important Venetian fortress which become a leper colony in 1903. Place with such an atmosphere! 
We although visited the most important and magnificent Minoan palace of Knossos. 
Oh,I am sad that our holiday finished but happy to be back so I can start on my craft projects. 
My card I want to share with you today is about summer.

Here is my favourite picture from our holiday :

The panorama of Agios Nicolaos

Hope that you all have beautiful afternoon.

No Scissors Please

Hello. I was baking today! So while it's my cheese cake sitting on the kitchen top and cooling down I can spent some time with you blogging :0) I have some nice summer card for you today. 
Miri from Daring Cardmakers set up really lovely dare for us this week.
She asked us to follow one simple rule :
No Scissors Please !
Decorate a card blank without using scissors or a paper cutter/guillotine. However, you may use your die cutting machine to add labels/shapes etc.

Here is my card :

Instead of cutting I was tearing! 

First I stamped stripes on the craft cardstock with brown ink, then I tore off main panel and stamped sentiment on the top, took two light blue wide stripes and tore to sea waves.

Turned on my sewing machine and stitched around with black thread. Die cut sailing boat from 3 different cardstocks - embossed white, light blue and red.  Finished with grey bow embellished with twine and little button.

Have a lovely time full of sunshine!

Used Material :

Kraft, light blue, red cardstock
My Favourite Things Go Overboard stamps
