Happy birthday to the greatest mom

Hi Crafty friends!  So happy today to share with you the card  featured on the May Creative Stamping Magazine!

To make this card I started blending the Squeezed Lemonade Oxide ink over a piece of Neenah Solar white cardstock using a blending brush.Then I emboss it using  the Pureland Fan Stencil and using the  Nested Scalloped Frames I die cut the rectangle to be my background. 

I glued it over a white card base and I continued stencilling the Gorgeous Peonies”  by Alex Syberia Designs in pink, orange, yellow and blue shades for the blooms and on green shades for the leaves using Distress inks. Then I die cut flowers and leaves using the coordinate dies and I glued them on the yellow background .

Remember that when you use layering stencils to obtain crisp images be sure the  ink blended part o is  completely dry before continue with the following layer. To speed up the dry process you could use the heat gun after every layer.

As a last step I foil in rose and die cut the sentiment ”Mom” using the “For Her"  hot foil plate and coordinate dies and I glue it over the flowers composition and in top of it  I add a the sentiment string from "For Her Sentiments" stamp set.

And that's it!

You could find more details about the making and the products I used on the magazine!

Hi Crafty friends!  So happy today to share with you the card  featured in the May Die Cutting Essentials Magazine!

There is no need to tell you how I'm honoured about it !

But let me tell you something about the making process!

To make this card I started die cutting  the Floral Lattice Cover die from vellum and  gluing it over a white card base I previously lightly blended with Savage Patina Distress Oxide  and in whichI added  some gold ink splatters.

Next up , using  the Classic Foliage die set, I die cut  the leaves from a teal cardstock and the flowers using  the   Fantasy Flowers die set.

I die cut the base of the flowers from   different  colour  papers  , the inside in black and glittered gold , and the top petals in white  and I colour them with Copic markers adding shades and dimension.

I continue gluing all the flowers and leaves on the card base and as a next step , using the "Expressing Gratitude Sentiments" stamps and dies ,  I stamped, embossed in gold  and die cut the sentiment. I placed it over the card and as a last touch I add some gold rhinestones.

Rainbows and unicorns

Hi crafty friends!

I'm  here today to share with you a new card featuring the new collection products!

I'm so happy about the result and I hope you like it too! but let me show you!

To make this card I used the Joyful Rainbow Stencil set,  the Always Be Yourself stamps set and his  coordinate die set, the Rainbow Sentiments stamp set  and his coordinate dies, the Glowing Geometry Hot Foil Plate and the Nested Scalloped Frames die set.

I started   die cutting a scallop rectangle from a lilac cardstock using the Nested Scalloped Frames die set ,  then embossing it using the   Glowing Geometry Hot Foil Plate as embossing folder and gluing it over a white cardstock base card.  The white  base is smaller than the lilac background because I didn't want it was visible.

As a next step I die cut a rectangle from a piece of Neenah paper and over  I stencilled the  Joyful Rainbow Stencil  using a soft pink ,  lilac  and grey inks and heat embossing in gold the middle arch. I continued embossing,  die cutting the "love star" from the Rainbow Sentiments stamp set and  gluing it at on side of the rainbow.

Below I stamped the sentiment "Dream Big" and all around the little pink and black stars .

Next upI glued the decorated rectangle over the card using foam pads and them  I printed , die cut and colored  the sweet unicorn from the Always Be Yourself stamps set  and the string sentiment from the Rainbow Sentiments stamp set .

I glued them over the card with foam pads  to give dimension and as a last touch I added some gold little stars.

And that's it!

Hope you like the card and hope I give you some inspiration!

I'm sure  there's something for everyone to love!

I started die cutting  a rectangle from a white paper using a frame from the Nested Scalloped Frames die set.  In this rectangle I die cut many shapes of a rainbow using the  Quirky Rainbow die set. From the same die cut set I obtained many rainbows from yellow, soft pink, light blue and teal cardstock.

Then I glued the rectangle frames over a white card base and in the rainbow shapes I previously die cut I compose the colored rainbows.

Once all rainbows was completed I die cut some hearts (from the Quirky Rainbow die set) from a glittered champagne cardstock and I glued them over the card.
Ad a last thing I stamped  in black the little sentiment "you are a star!" using a stamp from Always be yourself  stamp set and added  the big sentiment " Shine" from the Bright and Bubbly die set . To add dimension I  die cut the Shine sentiment in many of them in glittered Champagne cardstock and I glued it  a little staggered to create a shadow and add interest at the card.

It's been too long...since I made embossing with stencils

Hi crafty friends!

I'm here today with a new card that I hope can inspire you!

This time I mixed the Speckled Background stencil with The Giraffe-ic friends stamp and dies sets using a very fun technique to use stencils as embossing folders.

to made this technique I used the Spellbinder Platinum  six plus and all I did is  compose the embossing  sandwich and adding  the rubber  embossing mat between the basic platform and  my paper!

Specifically the sandwich is composed in this way: Basic Platform + rubber mat+ paper to emboss+stencil+embossing plate.

Really simple and cool result .. in the next days I hope to be able to show you the technique in a IG reel, so don't miss our accounts and @alexsyberiadesigns.

As a first thing I embossed in this way the white base background, then I used the same stencils and a brown distress ink on a Kraft paper . As I finished using a Glitter gel pens  I added the contour on every dots.

As a following step I stamped the giraffe and the leaves from the Giraffe-ic stamps set, on a Neenah white cardstock and I colored the images with copic markers and I die cut them using the coordinates dies.

Then I started to assemble all the elements.

I glued the white embossed rectangle on a white base cardstock and over it I added, with adhesive foam pads. the piece of the Kraft paper and under this  the leaves, over the Giraffe I previously colored , and the string sentiment I stamped on a black cardstock and embossed in white.

The last touch was to add the rhinestones.

And that's it! 

Thank you for stopping by !

You have a beautiful heart.

Hello crafty friends!

I'm here today with a new card featuring the gorgeous Spring Garden Layered stencil set and the Large Thanks hot foil plate.

I hadn't used  them yet so I had to fix it,  is it not?

So no coloring here  but so much fun and relax joining with stencils.

I started by stenciling the "Modern Waves Layering Stencil set" using the Shaded Lilac and Milled Levander Distress inks applying them in a  very light way on a white cardstock. From it  I die cut  the  top panel and using  foam adhesive tape I  adhered it over a white cardstock base.

I continued  by stenciling the Spring Garden Layered stencil set using the Milled Levander, Shaded Lilac, Speckled Egg, Tumbled glass, Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Broken China Distress inks .

After I used the Spring Garden stamp to define the edges and the flowers' details  heat embossing them in gold.

I continued hot foiling  the sentiment "Large Thanks" and die cutting it with the coordinate die and stamping and embossing in gold a string sentiment on a purple cardstock.

I add the flowers and the sentiments over the card and as a last touch  I added some lilac  rhinestones.

And that's it!

Hope my card can give you some inspiration!

Thanks for your time!

Have an eggs-cellent Easter

Hi crafty friends!

today with a new inspiration card using the lovely Spring Bunnies stamp set and the coordinate dies.

Easter is just around the corner and this set is perfect for the occasion!!

Let me show you the card and tell you about the making process!

How much fun making working with these cutie bunnies!

To start I cut the  rectangle for the top card (4" x 5 1/4") and I divided it in 9 parts using the score board . With a metallic pink gel pens   I colour the score marks as to create a Tetris scheme.

Then I matted the top card with a yellow cardstock , I glued all on the white base card and the top I stamped and colored some little flowers and hearts,  so the my background is ready.

Then I stamped the all the elements I needed from the "Spring Bunnies" stamp set  on the Neenah  cardstock  coloring them with Copic markers. Once I finished I die cut  them  with the Spring Bunnies coordinate dies  and I glued  the eggs and the bunnies on  the card.

As a last thing I stamped and embossed in white the little sentiment.

I admit this card takes me some time but I 'm so happy with the result!

Hope you like it too.

Thanks for stopping by and reading me .

Ciao ciao
