Digi Stamps from Pink Cat Studio!

Design of a round paper box. The image I used is Itty Bitty Betty Ladybug!
The designer paper is a free download from the UK magazine

I thought is was very suitable - ladybugs. The circles are cut with netabilities. As I wanted to integrate the colour silver I used aluminim foil normally used in the kitchen - it worked! The flowers and Itty Bitty is decorated with stickels and liquid pearls. I also used a red and a silver ribbon and a wooden ladybug!

On this picture you can see the things I used!
Hope you like it!

My second try is a christmas card with Itty Bitty Betty - candy can slide. I cut out a hole in front page of the card. I filled the hole with a foil envelope filled with white embossing powder to give the whole the impression of snow - somilar to shaker cards. So when you shake the card you have the impression that snow is falling down.
I also punched out various snowflakes embelissed with rhinestones. Last but not least a white and green pepita ribbon and "warm wishes" sentiments (from SU). The second picture gives more detail from the image. By the way Itty Bitty is coloured with copics.

And last but not least two boxes!

I had the idea to decorate pre-fabricated paper boxes in a christmas/winter style. I used various sizes of nestabilities and the image "Group Hug" from Stamping Bella! I punched different snwoflakes, some are embossed with white embossing powder others aren't. The snowmen are coloured with copics and decorated with stickles. For the snowflakes I used rhinestones or liquid pearls.

Another christmas card!

I was hooked with the stamp - a tree for all seasons - by Stampin up! I punched a whole in the card and placed the image on white cardstock behind. As I purchased two different snowflake punches at the weekend I had to use them. What you can't really see is the paper of the snowflakes. Shimmering in various rainbow colours!
The get the tree a wintery look I filled a foil pocket with embossing powder to give the whole the look of a shaker card. So when you shake it you get the impression of having snow!

Stampin up!

I did not purely use Stampin up material! The snowflakes are embossed and decorated with rhinestones! The large snowflake is covered with a foil which is filled with glitter to add a certain glitter!

Christmas during sunshine!

A couple of weeks ago, I did a stamping up workshop!

This are the results! Four different cards with different techniques.

Today I altered one card.

Christmas time in the sunshine!

Here is another in terms of colour very unusual christmas card. I downloaded the paper from the UK Magazine Paper Craft Inspirations. I thought why not, let's try. In order to improve the designer paper I added stickles and pearls to give the whole a glittery appearance! So this is the result:

A creative day today!

Although we have a warm summer day today I felt like producing my first christmas card for this year! I used the nestabilities I bought on saturday for the image. The image is "group hug" from Stamping Bella. The snowmen are coloured with copics and the paper are free downloads from the UK magazine "Papercraft inspiration" printed on a high quality glossy photo paper. Although I only have a very old ink printer the result is brilliant.

Actually I am quite proud of the result this time!
Probably I go on mass production of this one...

Hope, you like my card, too.
Thanks for looking!

My Timess Challenge

It's a long time ago that I updated my blog. Holidays kept me busy. Now everything is back to normal and I have time to produce some cards. So I participated at one of my favourite challenges of
This is the template:

And this is my result:

I used the image Lily&Billy Sweethearts Stamps from Pink Cat Studio. The frame is made of Angelina fibres a material which I sometimes use to embellish artistic quilts. So I tried to "iron" a frame betweet two sheets of baking paper. The result is always a big surprise. You do not know exactly how it will look like. I made some "adjustments" with my scissors. I deliberately did not use any designer paper to leave the emphasis on the frame. What you can't see from the picture is the virtue colour of the frame. It is shimmering in various rainbow colours. The dots are liquird pearls. There is no other embellishment used.
