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!
