C.R.A.F.T. Challenge # 316 - Anniversary/Wedding.

Welcome to a new C.R.A.F.T. Challenge!
 
We have a lovely theme this week for you: Anniversary or Wedding!
 
I opted for "wedding" and made this card:
 
 
I chose this very old card base (sadly, it was the last one!) which was perfect to frame this sweet couple (AKV Our Wedding - Archway from Bugaboo Stamps).
The sign is made with a stamp from Paper Smooches.
 
You can have a look here to see all details for this challenge and, if you entered our Christmas Challenge, you'll find winners and Top 3 here.

Happy Sunday!

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge # 315 - Christmas.

Welcome to our monthly Christmas challenge here at C.R.A.F.T.!
 
This week my card is Christmas-themed of course but colors are inspired by the sea:
 
 
This super-cute Santa is Yep, I Have My Methods from The Paper Shelter.
I used classic Christmas colors for the image but I chose a paper from Toga in a turquoise blue which reminds me of a Caribbean Island.

Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop!

I've been creating some coffee-themed cards and projects recently and when I saw the Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop I couldn't keep myself from creating a coffee card with a summer feel for this challenge.
 
This is my card:
 
 
The image is the adorable Love You a Latte Gnome from 2 Cute Ink, colored with Copics and matched with papers from Avery Elle (above) and Miss Tiina (chevron).
The sentiment is from Bugaboo (Coffee Time - May Your Cup).
 
I've had a great fun to color it and put the card together! I LOVE these bright colors!
And this gnome has the same happy face I have every morning when I sit down and smell my coffee!
 
Well, time to hop and see all those beautiful coffee-themed cards!

2 Cute Ink Challenge # 131 - Father's Day.

It's all about Fathers here at 2 Cute Ink Challenges!
 
We want to celebrate them and we ask you to show us your cards for Father's Day!
 
As you know, here in Italy Father's Day is in March so it was a bit "out of season" for me but the image is so cute that it's been very easy to make my card!
 
This is the featured digi stamp:
 
 
Isn't is lovely?
It's available in 2 Cute Ink shop on Etsy.
 
This is my card:

 
I've found this patterned paper from an Italian manufacturer (Modascrap) and I think it's the perfect background for these two cute alligators!
 
My teamies have created stunning cards! If I had to choose one I'd really have problems!
 
I can't wait to see all your beautiful cards!
 
I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Not Just Cards Challenge # 21 - Anything Goes.

Good morning and welcome to a new Not Just Cards Challenge!

You may have noticed a few changes, a new look, new badges and the last challenge was Zoe's last challenge. She has sadly had to step down as owner due to a serious illness. We wish her all the best and hope she gets better soon.
 
As usual it's Anything Goes but challenges will now run monthly starting from June.
 
My DT project for June is this card:
 
 
I've had the pleasure to work with a new sponsor: RoseyHearts.
This cute gnome is Strawberry Pipkins. I used my Copics and a very old scrapbooking paper (I'm sorry, there's no name or brand on it). I've had this paper for ages and when I saw the image I immediately thought it was perfect for my card.
 
We have great sponsors this month so don't miss the chance to win one of our fab prizes!
 
If you entered last week, have a look here to see if you're a winner.

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge # 314 - Color.

Welcome to a new C.R.A.F.T. Challenge!
 
This week we have a color combo for you:
 
 
In detail:

 
And this is my card:

 
I decided to turn this Spring Chicken from Pickled Potpourri into a parrot.
I sincerely don't know if it can be similar to a parrot but I find it very elegant in green.
Papers are from Kaiserkraft and October Afternoon and the chicken now parrot is colored with Copics. The sentiment is from an old stamp from There She Goes.
 
We can't wait to see what you create with these colors!
Have a look here for more inspiration and to see if you're a winner from last week's challenge!
