Hello Spring!

Hi crafty friends!!

I'm back today with a new card to share with you!

It' all about spring and delicate blooms and cuties! hope you like it!

To make my card I started by die cutting the Floral Lattice die cover from a white cardstock and gluing it over an A2 base card.

Next up I die cut the Hello sentiment using the Foxtrot Alphabet die set, in the  pink, yellow and gold colors. I die cut them in many layers I glued together to create them  dimension doubling them in gold. In the same colors I die cut all the lovely tiny  flowers using the Petit Periwinkles die set. Once they are assembled I glued them over the background being careful to leave in the center  the right space for the Hello sentiment.

I continued by stamping and die cutting the lovely bunnies using the Spring Bunnies clear stamp set and the coordinate dies. 

I colored them very lightly with Copic markers and I added them over the card using the mousse pads.

Next up I stamped end embossed in white the string sentiment I glued over the big hello sentiment and as a last thing  I added some gold beads.

And that's that!

Hope you like my inspiration card!

Thank you for stopping by!!

Go Wild!

Hi crafty friends! I'm  back with my second post as a guest designer for  Heffy Doodle.

I really love all the Heffy Doodle products and I had some difficult to choose the items to play with! at the end I decided for the cute animals and other stuff related to them to arrange my card!

As a first step I stencilled the Zebra Stripe stencil on a piece of Neenah Paper using the Silver Sage ink and I die cut from it a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" rectangle.

Then I die cut the 2 greenery frames using the Go Wild frame dies, the first one from dark green cardstock and the second one from a white cardstock previously ink blended using Silver Sage ink by Altenew and Bonded Sage Distress ink.

I continued by gluing the striped background on a A2 base card and over I added the two frames using mousse stripes to create dimension in every layer.

Next up I stamped the cute Zebra from the Two By Two Zoo Animals stamp set, I colored it with Copic markers and then I die cut it using the coordinate dies and I added it to my card using adhesive foam pads.

Here the Copic colors I used :


Then I obtained the big sentiment "Go Wild!" that is part of  Go Wild frame dies, die cutting the outlined shape in black and the top part in 3 white layers I glued all together to give a 3d effect. 

I added the sentiment on the card and as a last touch I added some black rhinestones all around the green frame.

That's it!

Hope you like this card and enjoyed your time here!

Thank you so much Heffy Doodle for having me as a part of your creative and talented family and thanks all you for stopping by!

Celebrating with Flower

Hi Crafty friends!

It's Nicoletta here today with a new card to share with you!! and for once again it's a floral card!! I  know you like them as much as I do!

To make this I started by die cutting the Meadow magic cover die from a cream cardstock and I doubled it with a sugar paper. Next up I stamped the flowers and the leaves from the Watercolour Flowers stamp set, applying the ink with a brush to obtain an soft and watercolored effect and as I finished I die cut them with coordinate dies.


I placed all die cutting elements on the cream top panel  I applied gold glitters on the center of every flower.

As everything is dried I glued the floral composition to my cardstock card base and as last thing I added the Happy birthday sentiment I made by using the Birthday die and the string sentiment Happy from the Christmas sentiments stamp set.


And that's that!

Hope you like it!

Thank you for stopping by!

You Are Plane Awesome - Guest Designer for Heffy Doodle

Hi crafty friends! I'm over the Heddy Doodle blog today  with my first guest designer blog post! I'm really excited  and I hope I could give you some inspiration to create with the amazing Heffy Doodle products.

As my first project I chose to make a shadow box card using the Big Shadow Box die and the Flying High stamp and die set to create a fun outdoor scene.

I started by die cutting the two main panels I needed to make the shadow box structure from a white cardstock and then I cut out a rectangle from the front panel. You may check the Heffy Doodle You Tube Channel to watch a video of the entire assembling process.

I continued by stencilling the front of my shadow box using the Funhouse Diagonal Stripes Stencil and the Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide and with the same ink I ink blended the back panel that will be showing in the inside.

Then I die cut all the elements I needed to put inside the shadow box (grass and clouds included in the shadow box die set ) and I assembled the box.

Nex up I stamped the images from the Flying High stamp , I colored them with Copic markers and I then die cut them with the coordinate die set.

As a last thing I added the images on my shadow box and that's that.

I hope you enjoy the reading time.

Winter Birthday

Hi crafty friends!

Nicoletta here today with a new card!

I hope you had a wonderful and peaceful Christmas!  I spent these days with my loved ones and I collected sweet memories.... and I cooked soooo much!!  So today I was really happy to sit in my craft room to play with my stuff!

I have some birthdays during the holidays and I have this card in my mind for days and today finally I had the time to give birth to my idea.

To make it I started by blending a red and green Distress Ink on a piece of  Neenah paper and cutting it in the size 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.

I continued by die cutting the top panel of my card using the Snowflake Petals Cover die in 4 layers... I adhered the first  3 together, then I glued an acetate sheet and over the last snowflake petal layer and I put white glitters red stars confetti into the petal's shakers.

I plugged the shaker panel with the red and green blended paper and then I glued everything on a white card base.

As a last thing I added  a red hot foiled and die cut  sentiment  ( doubled in green)  in the center of the card and that's that.

(It's Your Birthday hot foil and  die set)

Hope I give you some inspirations!

Thank you for stopping by !!

Joy to you and yours

Hi crafty friends!!

Christmas is just around the corner and I continue to create cards to wish happy holidays to my loved ones.

I made this card for a collaboration between Alex Syberia Designs and WOW! Embossing Powders.

Here is the card:

And now let me share something about the creative process.

I started to create my background... Using the Frosty Lace stencil set and the WOW! Clear Ultra Slow Drying embossing pad on a light pink cardstock I create a ton sur ton  and sparkling design. I die cut a rectangle from it using the Nesting Scalloped Frames die set and then I glued this pink background on a white card base.

Next Up  I die cut the Joyful Poinsettia from a very light rose cardstock and I blended the leaves with different shades of pink ink. and after that I added a Clear Ultra Slow inks on the border of the leaves and I heat embossed them using the

WOW! embossing powder Wanderlust.

I placed  and glued the flower composition on the card using some foam dots to add dimension and as then I added the big sentiment Joy .and the string sentiment.

Hope you like my card !

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Happy New Year

Hi crafty friends!

It's Nicoletta here today with a new very simple festive and shining card! Hope I can inspire you!


To make my card I started by hot foiling the Brilliant Burst Hot Foil Plate using a platinum Foil over a black smooth paper. Next up I created my background card by  die cutting  a rectangle from the hot foiled black paper using the Nested Scalloped Frames die set ; I glued the black rectangle on a white card base.

I continued by thinking about the sentiment to put on my card,

I die cut the big sentiment "Happy New Year", three white  layers for the  outlined  sentiment and one for the Happy New Years words

I glued them all together and then I glued the sentiment over the card.

As a last thing I added many rhinestones to give shining  touches.

And that's that!

Soo simple !! Isn't?

Thank you so much for stopping by

Ciao, ciao

Hello crafty friends!

I'm here today to share with you another cards featuring the adorable Holiday  Wreath  & Branch Stencil & die set from the new release and some other goodies from the previous collections.

To create this card I started by hot foiling in gold the Elegant Stripes Hot Foil plate on a white cardstock and die cutting it using the Nested Scalloped Frames die set. Then I glued it over a white card base.

I continued by stencilling the Holiday  Wreath  & Branch Stencil & die set  on a piece of  Neenah paper using some Altenew inks. As I said in my previous posts I really felt in love with layering stencil so I think you could see more cards focusing  on them.

Once the stencilled wreath and the bow are completed I die cut and glued them on my striped background.

As a last thing I added se big sentiment Noel on the wreath.  To make it I die cut the outlined Noel wording  4 white layers I glued all togheter and in one pink layers at the base I glued slightly staggered. The top "Noel" is in metallic gold cardstock.

And that' it!

Hope you like my card !

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Today is a new day

Hi crafty friends!

I'm here today with another inspiration card featuring the brand new products by Alex Syberia Designs.

In the Christmas collections isn't all about fairy, bauble and decorations but the flowers are a must too! and the MIDNIGHT BLOOMS collections is really amazing!


To make my card I started by   preparing the card base:  I  cut a blue Cardstock rectangle 3 1/4 "x 5 1/2" and I double it with a purple cardstock. Then I glued  it on a white card base.

Next up I continued by using the Midnight Blooms Stencil set, stencilling the beautiful flowers on a smooth white cardstock and once ready I die cut them with the Midnight Blooms die set.

I adhered the flowers on the card base using some foam pads to add dimension.

Then it was the time to use the Midnight Blooms stamp set and coordinate dies.

I stamped and  heat embossed the sentiment,  with a purple glitter powder... unfortunately it's not clear in the pictures... and I adhered it on the leaves.

As a last touch I added some purple rhinestones.

And that's that!

Hope you like it!

Thank you for stopping by!

Ciao ciao
