Cold noses...

Hello,
 
christmas is still coming closer. And this means we have to do more and more christmas cards =)
That's why I have a new christmas card to share with you today.
I used this absolutly cute stamp from Whipper Snapper. I have found him on a crafting fair this year. 
 
 
The background of this image I made with my great  Distress Oxide Inks. They are perfect for making those Backgrounds. You can blend them more softly than the normal Distress Inks. I used the colours Black Soot, Salty Ocean and  Faded Jeans. I blended them with my round Blending Tool from Tim Holtz. It's so much easier as with the big blending tool.
The white sprinkles I made with Gesso. Here I took some paint on my brush and spatter it on the image. Of course I covered the image with removable tape ;)
 
 
The round stamp is an oldie from Magnolia. The lyrics are from one of my fav christmas songs.

 
I added a Little charm right beside the image. Unfortunately I have no more from my fav mittens from Tinas shop. Here you can find the more sweet ones =)




 
Both tags are movable. I love to cover everything with white gesso *lol*. The stamps on them are from Magnolia, too.

All about Christmas Time 🎅🎄

Good morning everyone,
 
with some delay I show you today my Card for the new challenge over at All About Magnolia Challenge.
I used on this card the cute Edwin with lantern and an older background stamp. This background stamp is one of my fav's and I love to use it for my christmas cards.  Maybe you have seen  that I used not a black ink for stamping the motifs. I used during the last months a dark grey from StazOn. I think the images look smoother as with black ink. I like that.
The Image is coloured with Distress Ink as usual. The light from the lantern is covered with Wink of Stella glitter. I love that =)
The snowflakes around Edwin I made with Frantáge in shunky white.
 
 
The pretty papers are from Maja Designs "I wish" and "Joyous Winterdays" collection. The "winter" cutting die is from Noor! Design and the trees behind the image are from Marianne Design.


 
The stamps on this tags are from Magnolias Vinatage christmas box last year. They are so sweet.

 
Have a nice day.
 
Hugs,
Susen

Merry Christmas... 🎅🎄

Good morning,
 
this time one day later as usual. Here is my inpiration for this week. I made a new christmas card for you. It's a christmas card in non-usual holiday colours but from time to time I also like this =)
 
I used an older Tilda for this card. I grab her in a second hand group and I'm so happy about her. She is dressed so lovely with her sweet hat.  
 

 
For the decoration I used different cutting dies from Magnolia: Christmas Tree, Star Tag, Old Swedish Lace and Bow. After cutting them out I covered them lightly with Gesso. The ski cutting dies are from Whiff of Joy (sadly no more available). On the ski in the front I stamped "Merry Christmas". The sentiment is from Magnolia.

 
The pretty patterned papers are from Majas Joyous Winterdays collection and Vintage Frost Basics collection. Behind the Image I put a little piece of the 4'' round Doily.

 
The star tags are movable. On each of them I stamped a sentiment from Magnolia (they are from the vintage box last year).

Hello,
 
it's time for me to share some inspiration with you. This year we have a lot of newborns in our family and that's why I can show you some more of this cute cards.
Since I have seen this card shape for the first time, I felt in love. I bought the file in the Silhouette store.
 
 
The pretty sweet Little Tilda is from an older collection from Magnolia called "Princes and Princesses". I just love her and use her really often. The coloring is made with Distress Inks as usuall. Her crown is sparkling so pretty. I used Stickles Stardust. It's my fav of all the Stickles glitter glues.
Into the Little pocket behind Tilda I set the Heart tag and the Jeans tag. The both keys are also cutting dies from Magnolia. It's a Girl is a chipboard piece from Scrapiniec.



 
The inside of my card I created with the cute image from Majas Vintage Baby collection. I added some details like a little piece from the lace trim Je t'aime, some flowers and a little sentiment, also from Maja Design.

 
Have a great day.

The cute Tilda is called Happy Summer Tilda. Isn't she cute? I coloured her with Distress Inks.
 
 
In the middle of this card I've put a shaker window. The sweet Sentiment is from the new rubber stamp set from Stempelglede and called 'Have a beautiful Day'. The beautiful papers are from one of my fav Maja Design collections, Sofiero. I also used the Monochromes. They are matching perfect.

Craft Heaven Shop │ New challenge

Hello everybody,
 
finally we have a new challenge over at the Craft Heaven blog. Our theme is "Christmas". So easy =)
I pimped an old mini pizza box with the adorable products from Tinas store. I have a detailed list at the end of my post for you.
 
 
The pretty papers are from Majas brand new collection "Joyous Winterdays" and the "Monochromes". This collection is going to be one of my fav's.
I used a lot of different Magnolia cutting dies. The shaker window I've made with my new cutting dies from My favorite Things (Die-Namics).
 
 
The pretty sentiment in the window is also brand new from Stempelglede. Just love their stamp sets. I have embossed it with white powder from Ranger and added some Frantáge around.
 
 
Tilda holds a snowball on her hand. It looks so pretty cute.
 
 
 
Both tags are removeable. The sentiments on them are from Purple Onion Designs.
