Christmas Card Challenge # 25 - Candies.

What  yummy challenge we have this week at Christmas Card Challenges!
 
 
Candies!!!

 
This is my card:

 
I'm collecting freebies from AliciaBel for a while now and I even treated myself with some of their cute images but I've never had the time to make something with them.
 
This week it was the perfect theme for their Faery Lollipop digi.
I colored her with Copics and lots of glitter and used a paper from Papermania as background. I also added rhinestones for some more bling!

A Micey Day.

It's been a while since I last bought a stamp to make a card for a challenge.
Due to family issues and custom orders I have little time left for other projects but I long to make something "just because"...
 
This morning I decided I had to finish my card for the Gerda Steiner Designs Monthly Challenge. It's not the first time I buy one of her - adorable! - stamps to enter her challenge but I've never been able to make my card in time...
 
Today, I am ready:
 
 
This little mouse was too cute to resist!
 
I colored it with Copics and used an Avery Elle paper as background together with some matching pearls. The sentiment is from Pennyblack.
 
I LOVE it!!!

Christmas Card Challenge # 24 - Anything Goes.

I'm very late with my post for Christmas Card Challenges, sorry!
 
This week it's Anything Goes:
 
 
and I decided to make some tags:

 
This cute kangaroo was from DeeDee Digitals. I colored them with Copics and made some festive striped tags.
I always love making tags!

CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra for May - Mid-month Inspiration.

Happy Sunday!
The sun shines here today, birds sing and it's a very peaceful morning.
 
While I can't believe we're already on May 15, I'm ready for my mid-month inspiration post for CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.
 
This is my card:
 
 
I chose the lovely Scene It - Santa and Friends digi from Bugaboo Stamps and had a great fun coloring it.
I wanted a simple card with the image as focus so I only added a background paper from Toga and some matching pearls in the corners.
 
There are great cards to inspire you in the blog! Have a look there if you need a bit more inspiration!

Chipboard Crazy - Part 6.

A new week means a new card with one of the chipboard embellishments I'm trying to destash:

 
This time I've opted for a summer theme, with this little boat which makes me happy and dreaming of the sea...
Papers are from My Mind's Eye and Echo Park. I particularly love the sentiment which is the focus of the card.
I'm realizing that I'm destashing lots of paper too...
 
If you want to see my previous chipboard cards, have a look here.

Christmas Card Challenge # 23 - Color Challenge.

Happy Sunday to all moms out there!
 
Welcome to a new Christmas Card Challenge!
 
This week we have colors to inspire you:
 
 
In detail:

 
And this is my card:

 
The image is from Handmade Harbour and is called We Wish You a Merry Christmas (of course!).
I printed it on a paper from Pink Petticoat and colored it with Copics.
Since I wanted a very simple look, I positioned it on an olive green card.

Under the Weather?

The wording on the card I'm showing you today is really appropriate for this moment. Well, not for me but for my mom who's been a bit under the weather since the beginning of this new year.
 
 
 
I've had this Froggy Lolita digi stamp from Star Stampz (from the shop Spesch Designer Stamps) for a while and I thought it was time to use it.
This little girl has the perfect face for someone a bit "under the weather"!
 
I wanted the image to stand out so I chose a simple background paper and added only a few embellishments. The stamp is colored with Copics.
She's so sweet! And what about the little frog?!
