Hi everyone and welcome back to a new Linky Party! Today I am sharing with you this card that I made for you. I started off using watercolor card stock and applying lots of water so the watercolor can move around freely. I used a couple of Distress Inks. After everything was dry,  I die cut the smallest banner die from it that I wanted to use as a base for my critters. 

I stamped the two cute monkeys from the "Lovies" set and colored them in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. Then, I adhered both the banner and the critters to a white top-folding notecard. I found a fitting sentiment in the "Simply Said" stamp set. Before white embossing it, I die cut a flag banner from black card stock. Using foam tape, I also adhered it to the top left of the banner.



Thank you so much for stopping by. I am looking forward to seeing your creations on the blog.

10 years anniversary - 12 Dates Vouchers

Hi everyone, today I am back with a very special post. Today is Alex' and mine 10 years anniversary! Wow! Can you imagine? 10 YEARS? Time flew by so fast and we've experienced so much together! 

And this is what we love to do - gain new experiences. We love to try new food, travel (I think Costa Rica was both our favorite so far), try out new sports (like paragliding), go the theater, concerts, comedy events. And that's why I thought "Why not plan some dates for the next year to come?" - 12 in total. I have to admit that this is not my original idea. I actually came across this idea on Pinterest and I thought it was a wonderful idea. So I made 12 date vouchers. I kept them very simple and tried to match stamps that I have with the planned date (which was, unfortunately, not always possible). 

I hope you have fun scrolling through the 12 date vouchers. See you later.

Hi everyone and welcome back to a new Linky Party. This time we have a picture for you that will hopefully help and inspire you to create amazing projects. I wanted to create a cute little shaker card and used a build-in cutting design of an apple of my Brother Scan'N'Cut. In addition to the apple itself, I also created a little frame in the shape of an apple to create the shaker. I placed a piece of acetate behind the frame and used foam tape to create enough space for the little beads that I wanted to include. 



To embellish the card, I used the panda holding a pice of paper from the Panda Pals stamp set. I colored him with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and added a simple addition problem to it. I then adhered the panda to the shaker pocket. 


I hope you enjoyed my project. I am looking forward to seeing your creation on the blog.

Hi everyone and welcome back to another Linky Party. It's summer and the sun is shining so what better theme could there be than "Beach"? To create my card I stamped the cute bear image from "Gotta Wear Shades" on mix media paper and colored it with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.


 I wanted to create a clean and simple card with a lot of white space so I decided to die cut a scalloped circle frame using the "Stitched in Circle"die set. Using the smaller circle, I also die cut the circle from blue card stock and used my cutting machine to cut out waves. I adhered everything to a square top-folding notecard and placed the bear in the center of the frame. 



Using the Flag Banner dies I die cut a smaller flag from black card stock and heat embossed the sentiment "A splashing good time" with white embossing powder and adhered it to the frame. For some embellishment I stamped a few flowers from the "Island Paradise" set and colored them also with Zig markers and adhered them to the flag banner. For a finishing touch, I applied some glossy accents to the sunglasses of the bear.

I hope you enjoyed my card for the "Beach" Linky Party. I am looking forward to seeing your creations on the blog.
