Hello everybody! How are you doing? I'm busy, but fine. I just started learning French. Boy, oh boy, it's HARD. I hope I will be able to learn it enough to have a normal conversation in it. *fingers crossed*

But let's get back to crafting... Today I have a new tutorial for you. this time I was playing with foamiran and Whimsy stamps Rose petal dies to make these roses. 

They are really easy and quick to make. Want to know how to make them? Check this video tutorial below. :)

Cute little bunny

Hello everybody! Have you checked the recent sketch challenge at The Sketchy Challenges blog yet? No? What are you waiting for? We have an amazing prize for one lucky winner. ;) I'm a bit late with my card, but I finally managed to get it done. Here's what the sketch looks like...

And here's my card...

I wanted to make a spring/Easter card and this little bunny seemed perfect for it. I absolutely LOVE these MME papers and I wish I bought more when they were still selling them. Some things I just never learn. *sigh* The cute little bunny is a CC design stamp (Carrot Love) and I coloured him with Faber Castell pencils ( just regular, cheap ones). Flowers and butterflies are The Greeting Farm stamps. The only embellishment I used on this card are some pearls.

I hope you will ocme play with us. Have a wonderful day! xx

Wonderful Tilda

Hello everybody! I'm back again with another Magnolia card. I just got some new crafty things and I used quite a few of them on my card. Most of them are available at Magnolia-licious store.

This image is called Wonderful Tilda and I just couldn't wait to colour her. I mean, look at her, isn't she a cutie? I coloured her with distress inks. the gorgeous papers are from Maja design Celebration collection. I made the flowers myself from white foamiran and different teal and silver stamens that you can find here. To make the flowers I used Rosy Dot AC3 die and Whimsy stamps Lily flower die set. I made a tutorial for the small flowers I used on my card - you can check it here if you'd like. See the stitched circles I used? They are Rox Stamps dies and they are awesome - real good quality and great price. I embellished the card with some black crystals, pearl string, tiny pearls and some lace and rose ribbon/trim. The black lace is from my stash and the beige lace and rose trim are from Magnolia-licious store

Don't forget that the new challenge started yesterday at Magnolia-licious blog. Theme is AG (with *option* Easter) and you don't even have to use Magnolia stamp to join in - see sidebar on the challenge blog for details. I hope you will come play with us. xx

Have a wonderful day! xx

Shake it... Christmas

Hello everybody! It's time for a new challenge at Magnolia-licious blog and the theme is Anything goes with option of Easter. Remember, you do NOT have to use Magnolia stamps on your creation if you don't have any; you can also use Stambing Bella, Whimsy Stamps or CC Designs images.

I decided to go with AG for my card and I didn't do the Easter theme. However, the DT had an extra challenge to make a shaker card, and I did that.

I'm realy trying to make Christmas cards all year long this year so I will have enough when December comes. For my card I used the adorable Divine angel Tilda stamp. I coloured the image with distress inks and I added Stickles on Tilda's wings. Papers are from DCWV. I embellished the card with some crystals, pearl string, pom pom ribbon and some lace.

I hope you will come play with us this month. Have a beautiful day!

I'd like to enter my card to the following challenges:
Magnolia forever. Ribbon, lace and pearl
Cute card Thursday: Anything goes
Love to scrap: Anything goes
The corrosive: Anything goes

Frame it

Hello there! How are you doing? We got LOTS of new snow over the last couple of days so I am very happy I have the chance to stay in where it's warm. I really don't have any desire to go out into that cold. And what's worse is that the weathermen are saying the next week will be even worse - more snow and even colder. Pffff... Not something I'm looking forward to. But on the other hand, this is a perfect excuse to stay in and do some crafting. ;)

Earlier this month my sweet little baby girl was celebrating her second birthday and to add to the celebration I made a couple of heart earrings and I'm giving two people the chance to win a pair in their desired colour. This is what the earrings look like (sorry for the bad photo)...

If you want a pair, all you need to do is to comment on my Instagram photo here or on the photo on my Facebook with the colour you'd like. Blog comments do NOT count. You have til Sunday 9 am (my time) to leave your comment.

We are having family over for celebration tomorrow and we're also having a cake then. We are having a panda themed party, because pandas are "big hit" with my lil one at the moment. :)

Anyways, enough about that. I need to tell you about the new challenge that just started at The Sketchy Challenges blog. This time we would like you to use a frame of some sort on your creations. Here's my card - a birthday one. ;)

To make this card I used leftover pieces of paper from Prima's Romance novel paper pad. I just love this pad, so I couldn't part with those small strips of paper. I usually don't save them, but I did with this paper. And I'm really happy I did. :) I got inspiration for this type of project at Natascha's blog, because she often uses scraps of paper on her cards. 

To decorate the card I used some gorgeous flowers, pearls and crystals. Image is from Whiff of joy and I coloured it with pencils.

So much from me today. I hope you will come play with us! :)

I'd like to enter my card to the following challenges:
Deep ocean: Cute and cuddly
Let's craft and create: Anything goes
Cute card Thursday: Cute critters
Allsorts: I spy with my little eye, something beginning with B (butterflies, black, birthday cake)

Easy foamiran flower tutorial

Hello everybody! Today I have a new foamiran flower tutorial for you. It's a very, very easy one, but I hope you will like it anyway. :) These are the flowers I'm gonna show you how to make...

I also used eyeshadow to do some shading on the flowers.

And here's the video tutorial on how to make these. 

I hope you'll find this tutorial useful and that you will make a few of these. ;)

Have a great day! xx

Birthday wishes

Heya! I'm back with yet another card What can I say... It's been pretty busy in my crafty corner in the last couple of days. ;) 

Today I want to show you a card I made for my mom's birthday that's coming later this month. She stopped by when I had it on my crafty table, so she has already seen it (ooops), but I told her she's not getting it before the birthday. At least it's safe for me to post it on my blog without worrying of spoiling a surprise. ;)

Here's the card.

I used beautiful papers from Maja Design and very cute Dressed for festivity Tilda stamp. I coloured the image with distress inks. I made the flowers myself - I used RosyDot #3 and Whimsy Lily flower dies. I used ecru and olive green foamiran, and yellow glitter stamens, double headed white stamens and ecru micro bead stamens. All of these products are available in Magnolia-licious store. At the end I also embellished the card with some lace, pearls and crystals.

That's it from me today. Have a wonderful day!
Bye bye! xx
