Some kind of weave

Hi everyone!

today I share with you my latest cards featuring Alex Syberia Designs products.

It's  time for the Modern Weave Layering stencil, one of my favorite products from the release.

This because it's very simple and fast  to create beautiful and striking backgrounds for our creations.

The Modern Weave Layering stenci set consists of 3 different stencil and  I used one different Distress Oxide ink color for each of them; specifically used  Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick and Festive Berries Distress inks

Once I finished with the stencils I die cut a rectangle and using foam tape I glued it over a white cardstock base. I glued over a small vellum rectangle and then  I added the "Smile" die cut , the sentiment string and the little gold  hearts from the "Sparkle and Dance" stamp set and dies set..

Here another version:

For this one instead  I used   the thanks die and the little sentiment from the "Create Your Own Happy" stamp set.

As I said before so very simple to make  right?

That's that!

Hope you like my cards!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi crafty friends!

The perfect combination of stamps and inks!!

For my card I used the "Create Your Own Happy " stamp set and die by Alex Syberia Designs and  the Limoncello, Stone Blue, Stone Blue, Dress blues, Suede Shoes inks by Catherine Pooler Designs
As a first thing I make the top background  using the Modern Stripes cover die , as a foil plate as I said you already in on the previous post. Once it's foiled I add some splashes of blue and gold ink.
I glued the top background at the blue cardstock base .
Then I started to work with stamps and I stamped the flowers using the various blue shades trying to create  some shades. I take a video of the making and I'll share with you soon... maybe on Instagram.
Once I stamped all the flowers and leaves I die cut and glued them on the background , some of them using 3d foam to add dimension.

Just because you are special

Hi crafty friends!! I want to wish all of  you a very happy new year !

One  the best way to start the year is for sure to make a new card using some of my new stuff !! It's the time for  "Life is Good " layering stencil set, coordinating stamp set and die! It's the first time I used the layering stencils and I had so much fun so  I couldn't stop!!

To make the card I started off using the Fancy background stencil with the  Textured Paste by Ranger.  
I chose the white on white  for a very clean design and I like so much the result.

After I start layering the floral image with  distress inks using red colors for flowers and the  blue-green ones  for leaves...  absolutely one of my favourite color combo!

Then I embossed the image using the coordinating stamps set  and  cut it out with the Coordinating die.

To compose the card I glued the dried  fancy background on a white base card  and over it I added the stencilled and embossed image. To add dimension I die cut the floral shape in white foam and the same I did for the sentiment "Just Because" from the "Create your own happy"using the coordinating dies.

From the same stamp set is the little sentiment string "You are special" I embossed in white.

As a last touch I added some rain drops and... that's that!

Hope you like my card!

Thank you for stopping by and once again  I wish you a very happy new year filled of love, creativity and peace..

Be happy and dance

Hi crafty friends! here I am  with a new sparkling card featuring the "Sparkle & Dance" stamp set.

The stars are these adorable dancers!! 

To make my card as a first thing I die cut the background using the "Fancy Cover" die   one time in white and then  I die cut many colorful little squares I insert in the white cardstock much patience!!!

As I finished , I  glued it over a glitterd cardstock and then over a white cardstock base.

Set aside the base I stamped and colored  the cat and the dog dancer ; then  I die cut them using the "Sparke & dance" die set and I glued the little dancers  on the base .  As a last thing I added the little colourful embossed sentiments.

Hope you like my card and you could find here some inspiration!

Time to celebrate and hot foiling using cover dies.

Hi crafty friends!

 Today I  share with you a new card  perfect for the holiday season.

This time I used  the Birthday Wonderland stamps set because it's perfect  not  only for birthday wishes but  also for the Christmas season.

 I worked on the background blending  Distress inks and Distress oxide  inks in many shades of blue and blue-green; I foiled the blue background using the Modern Stripe cover die but  as a foil plate like Lien by Studio Kato showed us in one of the her previously post.  If you haven' t read it yet please do it now!! You will be able to use your dies for foiling !! and let me say it works great!!

Once I foiled the blue background with a brush I added some glue splatters and as they were slightly dry I added the foil flakes over them. In the photo, unfortunately, it's not very visible but I assure you it is so sparkly and seems a starry sky.

Then I glued the background on a cardstock base and over added the lovely images I previously embossed in gold ,colored with Copic markers and die cut with the "Birthday Wonderland" die set.

For the sentiment I used the 
Celebrate die;  I die cut the celebrate word in metallic gold cardstock  and layered up the shadow die four times with white cardstock and one  times with a pink one. I finished up with some embellishments and that’s it! 

Thank you for stopping by to read my post!

have a lovely week!

The stars are the limit - Alex Syberia Designs

Hi crafty friends! I'm here to  share with you a new clean and simple card featuring Alex Syberia Designs stamps. It's  totally focused  on the coloring of this adorable penguin from the "Smile and Wave" stamp set. Isn't it  too cute?

As a first thing I stamped the lovely penguin and the star on X-Press blending card paper and I started to color the background  as a scene of a blue/violet sky and a snowy and icy ground.

Once I colored the background scene I started to color the penguin and emboss in gold the star I previously inked with the Versamark pen.

Once all the coloring was finished  I adhered it over an A2 white card base and as a last thing I added the sentiment strip and some dots of gold ink in the sky.

I share  the Copic colors I used in case you needed it:

Sky : B69/B66/B63/B60

Snowy and iced ground: B63/B60/BV000/BV0000/B000/B0000/0

Penguin: 110/100/T10/W1/W00/Y11/Y0000/YR24/Y19/Y15/Y11

Hope you like my card! thanks so much for stopping by,

Ciao Ciao

Joy to the world

Hi everyone crafty friends!
another Christmas card here and this time non coloring!!!
I placed some orders lately and when all the amazing products arrive I can't wait to play with them, and I  trust me, I really enjoyed the making!!
What do you think about?

As I said before no coloring this time... I played combining product of some if my favorite brands.
I made the background I used the "Swirl  Background" stencil.. I made the large swirls with the Distress ink and the Oxide ink "Lumberjack plaid" and the thin ones using Versamark ink and the "WoW embossing powder gold pearl".
The big "Joy" sentiment  and the leaves are from the " Joy to the World" die set by A Pocket full of Happiness.
Over the word "Joy" I added a little sentiment string made using the "Mini Christmas setiment strips glimmer hot foil and die from the "Tis The Season"collection.
At the end I added the enamel dots.

That's that for today!
I hope you like my inspiration!

Thanks for stopping by!

We are friends

Hi crafty friend!
Another card here today to share with you!
As I said you in the last post, finally I started to make some Christmas cards  so here another one:

To make this one I used again the  "Tree-mendous" clear stamps set coloring the elements I needed with Copic marker.
To make the background I blended tre shades of blue Distress inks adding some sprays of water and some splashes of white paint to create the snow.
Over the blue snowy sky I stamped and embossed in white the sentiment from the stamp set and
 then ,with  a stitched edges die, I made the snowy mountains and I glued over them all the images I previously colored and put aside.

Some other pics:

Isn't it a very lovely gang?
I really love these critters:-)

Hope you like them as much as I do!
Thanks for stopping by!
