Merry Christmas from across the miles

Hi crafty friends!

Today I share with you a new inspiration card featuring the new release "Christmas in July".

This is the time for the "Large Merry Christmas"  die , for the "Jingle Bell Joy" die set, for the "Christmas Sentiments" stamp and die set, and for the " Winter Foliage" die set.

I started die cutting a rectangle from a a purple cardstock using the dotted rectangle die from the  "Nested Scalloped Frames die set". Over it I embossed the small Christmas tree form the "Christmas Sentiments"  stamp  using the Versamark ink and a gold embossing powder.

I adhered the top panel on a black card base and I continued die cutting the  foliage I needed to compose my card using  the "Jingle Bell Joy" die and the " Winter Foliage" die set and gluing all of them on the  card.

Next up I die cut the "Large Merry Christmas"  die. a The bottom part of darker shade of a purple cardstock in 3 layers and the top from a metallic gold cardstock. I assembled everything and I put the big sentiment over the foliage,

Next up , even using the "Nested Scalloped Frames die set" I die cut a rectangle frame   from the darker purple cardstock in 4 layers and  after I glued them all together I framed the card,

As a last thing I stamped and embossed in gold a string sentiment from the "Christmas Sentiments"  stamp set, I die cut it with the coordinate dies and I adhered it over the large Christmas sentiment.

And that's that!!

Hope you like my card!

thank you for stopping by and see you soon.

Falala friends

i crafty friends!

I'm  here, today,  with a  new inspiration card I made with products of the new " Christmas In July" release!

Despite the very hot summer we are having in Sardina it's a pleasure play with Christmas critters , poinsettias and  falling snow! Actually never too early to think about Christmas right?

Anyway I had so much fun  in the making process and this is the result:

I used the Falala Friends stamp set and coordinate dies, the Falling Snow stencil, the Falala die and the Nested Scalloped Frames die set.

I started to create the snowing background on a craft paper using the Falling Snow stencil and a Texture Paste by Ranger, I let it dry and in the meantime I stamped the images of the Falala Friends stamp set I needed.

Once i colored everything with Copic markers I die cut them using the coordinate dies,

Next up I die cut a rectangle from the craft snowing cardstock using the Nested Scalloped Frames die set and I started to assemble the card by gluing this rectangle on a white card base. On the bottom I added a small white rectangle  with a pink border  in which I stamped the sentiment "fall"and then I added the critters and all the elements I previously die cut.

As a last thing I die cut the big sentiment Falala: the base in white cardstock and the top one in pink; I die cut this on  and in 4 layers I glued all together to add dimension.

Copic colors I used:

Pig: R85/R83/R81/RV52//RV10/RV00/R20//BG18/BG15/BG11/BG10/R29/R27/R24/R22/C9/C8/C6/C3/C1/C00/C0/0



And that's it!

Hope you like my card!

I continued  by gluing the background on a white card base and adding over   the colored poinsettia using foam pads and cutting out the protruding parts with scissors.

As a last thing I added the sentiment and some pink pearl.

Sending Love -Tulips Treasure

Hi crafty friends!

I'm  back today with a new inspiration cards featuring some other products from the Sunkissed Memories release!

This is the time for the Tulips Treasure stamp set and coordinate dies and for the Tiny Dots hotfoil plate.

To make my card I started by stamping the flowers from the   Tulips Treasure stamp set , coloring them with Copic markers and cutting them out using the  coordinate dies .

For the background I foiled in gold my  white top panel with the Tiny Dots hotfoil plate. I continued die cutting a scalloped frame using the Nested Scalloped Frames die set  and a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 fuchsia rectangle.

On the white frame I traced a gold rectangle

As I had all the element ready I started to assemble my card gluing the fuchsia rectangle over a white card base. Next up I glued the foiled panel  and over I put the white frame using foam tape to add dimension.

I arranged  the tulips and over I put the sentiment I previously stamped, embossed in gold and die cut.

As a last touch I added some semi pearls.

That's that for today too!

Thank you for stopping by!

Ciao ciao!
