Have a super day

For today I’m breaking from the Christmas card project and doing one general card using a sketch from Addicted to CAS “Sketch”  and stamp set from Paper Smooches.

As you know, I love sketch challenges and I can’t miss out this one from Addicted to CAS.

ATCAS - code word sketch

I colored the superhero with promarker and die cut him with its coordinating die. I was trying to get depth of color on his clothes but can’t seem to get that here..anyhow, I’ll get that soon through practice :)

I’m also entering this card in Paper Smooches November 16-22 Anything Goes (wk3) challenge.

So without further ado, my take for the challenge. I used Paper Smooches Santa Paws stamp set.

Garden Fairy

Hi everyone!

I’m featuring this pretty stamp set, the Special Edition Stamps - Garden Fairy by the very talented lady Clare Brown.

First up, I stamped the fairy in white cardstock and colored it with promarker. I then added a Wink of Stella Clear glitter pen in the wings to give some subtle shine.

The papers are from the Tropical Favourites kit, also from Sarah Hurley :)

I stamped the banners in different inks and fussy cut them. I added them on top of the card panel for some additional dimension and texture too. I think the stamp set will be great also for a fairy theme birthday invitation, or a girl’s invitation set, an accent for a tag or an accent to a girl’s scrapbook page.

So here it is

Holiday card with non-holiday stamp set

Hello everyone!

So excited to share a Christmas card today using non-holiday stamp set :) A great way to stretch your stamps isn’t it?

I used the fox from the Small Things stamps set, not a Christmas theme set but rather a general hello, everyday kind of stamp set. I  used traditional red and green inks to show the Christmas colors and also added some buttons and leaves to represent a Christmas holly.

I also added a Clear Wink of Stella glitter pen to the fox for some shine.

For the background, I created my own by stamping the circle with white ink, it looks like snow using the white ink pad :)

I also add texture in the green tag paper by stamping the Woodgrain background stamp.

Booo!

I’m sharing today my take in this month’s challenge at Sarah Hurley365 blog. The theme: Halloween.

I only use one stamp set for this card. It’s Sarah‘s Malcolm Strange stamp set. I got the black & white pattern paper from A Few of my Favourite Things March kit. I used it specifically with that skull drawing in there :)

I added a shine in the pumpkins using glossy accents, same thing to the ghost eyes and kitty’s nose. I stacked them together  to show some form of balancing act while Malcolm is looking at them :) I also used the spider web stamp for my card base background.

Mr Snowman

Hi there!

I’m sharing this fun snowman card that can easily be mass-produced.

The Snowman stamp and coordinating dies are one of the new products in Hero Arts Handmade for Christmas release 2014. Love how easy it is to use the snowman as the main focal point for a card and use some bright colors to bring him to life.

You can also use bright reds and other ombre color ink pads to have a variant of this card.

a2z Scrapbooking October challenge

Happy 1st of October!

Can you believe its only few weeks from now and it’s already Christmas! I already started my Christmas card projects last month and so expect me to continue sharing some more in the next coming weeks :)

Today starts the new challenge over at a2z Scrapbooking blog. October theme challenge will be “to use two (2) Hero Arts products” in your entry.

For my card, I used Hero Arts Tree-mendous digital kit. I love the flexibility of digital stamps, easy to re-size or enlarge the image as you want. Here I printed smaller size trees and colored them with markers. I also added Clear Wink of Stella glitter for some shine.

I also added some gems, I arranged them in a way that it will look like snow falling from the sky. I added a vellum behind the trees to focus more on the trees as well and attached it by running a straight stitch using my sewing machine.

For the sentiment, I silver embossed them.

I added red ribbon to complement the red trees too.

Winter Holiday Houses

Hello there!

For today’s project share, I’m using Hero Arts Holiday Houses. I did one card and a tag using one of the houses for the tag.

I love doing card sets and at times its great to do a tag to complement a set. I usually use the tag to match the set that can be given also as gift.

For the projects, I printed and colored them with markers. I added some glitz and detail using white gel pen and clear Wink of Stella glitter pen. On a separate card base, I printed also the trees that comes also with the kit. One great thing about working on a digi kit is that it comes with other elements that you can use in a project.

sequins2

The snow cap in those houses has some shine to it using the Wink of Stella, the photo didn’t catch that here but it’s so pretty in real life.

The silver sequins add festivity in the scene and this is complemented too by the silver lace ribbon that I used in the bottom of the card.

See how this card sparkle? I love those silvers over white card base.

Here’s the card in full view

For the tag, I printed a bigger tree and colored it with green marker. I also added Wink of Stella on the vines, the same way I did in the houses snow. This time for the house, I tried putting in distress glitter for a change.

The polka dots are from the digi kit too, it has a selection of patter papers that you can also use.

And a full view of the tag, great for the holiday gift. The sentiments are also from the same Holiday Houses digi kit.
