Shake it Off

It's so quickly dark in the afternoon during the winter months. We put up our Christmas tree yesterday. I was instantly transformed into my childhood watching all those tiny lights and sparkles of glitter baubles. I have my first shaker card today for you. Daring Cardmakers have very interesting Shake it Off challenge 
set up by talented Sharon. She is a very clever girl, she wants us to create shaker cards. 
Here we come, my first try! 

Have a nice afternoon!

Christmas Joy

My second project to share is kind of cute.I used two main characters as a focal point for this card.
When I saw Echo Park penguin stickers I was immediately in love. Are they not cute? Adorable :0)

Is that not a Christmas Joy to have your loving friends around? To ski, play in the snow and joy winter about?

Hello. How is your Saturday? I am doing my favourite weekend activity - crafting! My cuddly fluffy boots and cup of tea on my desk are keeping me warm. We have proper frost cold outside :0) Today I have some nice projects to share with you. The first one is for Poppy Stamps  Blog. I created a card with lots of snowflakes on.

I love Poppystamps Frozen Flakes Die. I die cut them from velum and white cardstock and started to play.
I although used Poppystamps Vintage Merry Christmas die to create nice festive sentiment.

Added some green glitter glue to my snoflakes and they suddenly came alive. They were telling me lots of stories and we had a great fun! :0)

Autumn Calling

Hello. Hope that you have nice morning. We have rainy cold day here in Kingston. Autumn is definitely calling for winter to come. To bring a sunshine to my day I made some card projects today to share with you. 

First card I created from My Minds Eye's Lost & Found Christmas Collection.

The little houses are from Memory Box Tiny Village dies.

My second card is all about love and My Mind's Eye again. :0)

I bought Collectable Notable Kit by Jen Allyson and I love every piece of it. 

For this card I used only pattern paper from MME kit. I played with cardboard and tried to run it trough my Cuttlebug using Spellbinder Hearts dies. Then painted with white acrylic paint and sprinkled with white fine glitter. Embellished with felt flower and red button.

Word 'love' is My Favorite Things Die-namics die matted with white cardstock.  Finally my card is dressed to my most loving pink satin ribbon, which I bought in our local antique shop. 

Have a beautiful afternoon!

November Leaves

Hello! I am back! Happy together with my hubby in our cosy little apartment.  If I can call this week by the colour I would call it grey :0) Soggy, rainy weather is upon us! That makes me more crafty and creative! Today I would like to share my first Poppy Stamps project with you. 
I love their fabulous dies. 
For more beautiful inspiration visit Poppy Stamps Blog.

This card was super easy to make with Poppystamps Thank You Background die. I've just run my blue card blank through cuttlebug machine, fixed cream cardstock panel from other side, round the corners and ink around.

Then I die cut maple leaves from assorted brown and yellow cardstock. Nested them to create a leaf bunch. Sprayed a bit of brown ink over.

Wrapped around dark velvet and cream ribbons, tied a nice big bow and embellished with white button.

Thank you for stopping by! Hope that you have nice and cosy Thursday too!
