For My Sister

Last week I send a little parcel to my sister. I miss her so much! She is my best friend, my adviser, my everything! I love her so much.

I had great fun playing with the cotton yarns! 

Little close up on the back.

Have a nice Wednesday!

December Colours

Hello! Today I want to share my card for the Daring Cardmakers challenge. 

I remember when I was little my mum bought a huge pack of sunflower seeds every December. We built a wooden bird house, filled it with the seeds and hung it on a tree by our living room. Each day we'd wait by the window for cute blue-tits to come.
When I came across this picture it refreshed my memory. The cosiness of our warm home, a winter wonderland with snow outside and watching for blue-tits! 
Now! I dare you to create a card with these peaceful colours.

Sky Blue, Agate Blue, Greenish Gray, Canary Yellow and Tan

And here is my card :

|This card is full of bits and pieces to create an atmosphere from my childhood memory.

I stitched around yellow panel, matt with grey polka dot paper on the card front.
hand stitched 'of Christmas' sentiment on the brown Crate Paper Story Teller tag and embellished with decorative paper tape.

Knitted small panel from cream yarn, layered on die cut circles from white and craft cardstock.

Decorated with flock flourishes. I sprayed Caribbean Blue Glimmer Mist on to white chalk seam binding to create scrunchy vintage look of my bow flower.
Did you spot my blue tit bird? It's from Tea House Bridge resin section. I used Letraset Promarkers to add yellow and grey colours for the perfect blue tit look.

Have a nice and cosy Friday!

For Dad

I am enjoying my cup of coffee, waiting for the sunshine, as they promised us on the weather forecast  and blogging you my newest card. It's funny, I discovered that I created more cards for girls only couple  for the boys! So here is one for my Dad!

I embossed and inked cream cardstock for the background.

Hand cutted flower petals from white cardstock, ink the edges with brown ink and couloured with yellow Letraset Promarker.
You will never quess where this huge blue fabric button comes from. It's from my hubby's parents old sofa! :0)  What a button journey! :0)

And white foam letters for sentiment.

Have a lovely afternoon!

I decided to use my gold wired ribbon. 

The tine white luggage tag was really handy. I inked the edges and stamped 'Joy' sentiment with black ink.

I layered double bow on muslin fabric and adhered on two white snowflakes decorations. For bow center I've chosen white threaded button. 

Have a nice time and thanks for coming!

Thank You Card

Hello everyone! Are you thinking what I'm thinking?  I am so concentrating on my Christmas cards that I've completely forgotten to create some Thank you cards. It would be lovely to say 'Thank You' to those ones who send you their Christmas blessings in most traditional way paper envelope! 
So here is my design. What about you? Do you have ready your 'Thank You' cards?

I am tuned in cheerful colour scheme! Using some leftovers from my Christmas cards.

I die cut flowers from assorted fabrics, built a base from red pom pom ribbon and then played with layering. Adhered shiny beads for flower center. 

For the background I've chosen Clearly Besotted Honeycomb stamps. They are fantastic! You have so many options with them! It's like building toy blocks! :0)
 For the sentiment I picked Stampin'Up Vintage Verses and for the little extra I added tiny crown from Stampin'Up Tiny Tags! 

I am wishing you a very happy day!

Funky Christmas

As another week draws to a close, I think I must have blinked and missed it, that I almost forgot about Daring Cardmakers Friday challenge. Oh my! This week with our fabulous sponsor 

who let our Design Team play with 

Silent Night Collection and

Sleigh Ride Collection

So we've all made 2 projects this week and that's what we'd like you to do too.   We'd like one to be a Christmas card and the other to be "something else" - you could make your second project a birthday card,  a tag, a gift box or another sort of greetings card - that bit is up to you - but we'd like you to use your Christmas stash for both!

Come to play along with us and you can win these fabulous collections. Click here
