My universe card ft Lawn Fawn

Hello there!
Finally I found time for my favorite challenge blog with Lawn Fawn products called Lawn Fawnatics, because I simple couldn't miss any of their challenges. This time it's called - #10 Custom Sentiments. I do love custom sentiments,  they bring smth personal to the cards. And... I made a love card to my hubby with my fave theme ever- universe, galaxy , stars... so you understand what I mean))


One brilliant idea came to my mind - to die cut a panel with Snowy Backdrop die by Lawn Fawn and make it a galaxy with constellations connecting those dots and stars with a white gel pen. Now I don't need to buy some extra contellation background stamps as I can make my own with Lawn Fawn die. That's amazing. Before using a white gel pen I sponged the panel with Oxide inks in Broken China + Faded Jeans, framed with Chipped Sapphire regular Distress ink. Sprinkled some water to get that awesome oxidized effect. 


To send my critters from Joy to the Woods set by Lawn Fawn to space I needed to make two helmets with silver circle die cuts and pieces of vellum. Colored my animals with alcohol Chameleon pens and pencils.


To make the sentiment I used my fave Smitty's ABCs alphabet set by Lawn Fawn.

So I used the following LF products:
- Snowy Backdrop die
- Joy to the Woods stamp set
- Smitty's ABCs stamp set

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a starry day! :)

Hello, friend card

Hello there, crafty friends!
I like fairies so much and Mo's digital pencil store has tons of them, they all are so cuute! This cutie is from a set called 3 baby fairies. Just look at that lady bug!  Do you know that we have challenges at Facebook here and this month it's a sketch.

I colored the image with alcohol Chameleon pens and some accents with Chameleon pencils. 
Sponged the background with regular Distress inks: Chipped Sapphire and Salty Ocean. White dots - with a white gel pen. Cut the grass with Lawn Fawn Meadow Borders die and sponges with Twisted Citron distress ink, love this fresh and bright green color.


Covered the die cut word with Wink of stella glitter pen. Love how it look on black ❤



I absolutely love bright colors going together with nutrals.

Wedding congrats card

Hello there!
Sometimes it feels that wedding cards can only look like flowered bed but I'd like to show you a different variant of a wedding congratulation card.
I love autumn and autumn themed cards, by accident our family friends have their wedding this autumn and i'm a bit tired of flowers this summer ;)) so one brilliant idea has come to my mind)) autumn is associated with bright colorful leaves and berries, so why not make a wedding card with those leaves, looks different, agree?



I made this card for Chameleon blog where you can find downloadable instructions to this card with a full list of used supplies. One thing I want to mention that all the coloring was done with alcohol Chameleon pens and some accents with Chameleon colored pencils.





I love this card so much, it looks so different in comparison with usual wedding cards, I also glad that I was abla to make this card without using flowers))
Thank you so much for stopping by! Have an amazing day!

Vellum butterflies ft So Suzy stamps

Hello there!
I'm super happy that the latest release was welcomed very warm. That's the best gift for me, for real! Can't wait to see what you all will create using these stamps!! Today is my turn to show you a card and here it is. I wanted to make a simple but very dimensional card with lots of air and open space.



I used here:
Olesya's Butterfly Glitter White Blizzard Nuvo Crystal Drops
Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops
Coastal Breeze Ink Bite Set ( Egyptian Sand ink cube)

Sunny and BrightOlesya's Butterfly Monarch

Glitter White BlizzardMorning DewButterflies Sm. Solid

Coastal Breeze Ink Bite SetThis is the Most Incredible Stamp Tool Invented. MISTI's simple hinge design provides consistent stamping for the novice or experienced crafter. This tool will accommodate both the red rubber cling mount stamps or clear stamp. A foam pad is included with your MISTI to raise the cardstock when stamping with clear stamps. Your MISTI will provide a platform for multiple stamp techniques that are impossible with traditional stamp mounts. Use the two included magnets to quickly and easily position your cardstock, and the included grid paper makes it easy for you to layout and align your card's design.




Using my MISTI tool I stamped the solid butterflies directly onto a kraft cardbase using So Suzy ink bite cube in Egyptian Sand. Stamped the sentiment with Jet Black Archival ink. Made several loops with jute and placed around the phrase.


Fastened the jute wreath with a stapler. By the way, those staples can be left as they are, they look like embellishment.


Heat embossed the butterflies with white super fine powder by Ranger on vellum. Look, these stamps are very versatile. They go well with those who loves coloring and those who doesn't, you can simply heat emboss them, or stamp onto a colored cardstock, or patterned paper, or foil them, possibilities are endless. And they look very pretty every single time!


I adhered die cut leaves and flowers to the wreath and butterlies. The final touch ws to add glitter nuvo drops to the butterflies' wings and clear nuvo drops to the leaves. They really look like rain drops or dew, so pretty :)


Here are some close up shots to look at all the details.



Thank you so much for stopping by! Have an amazing day!

Here I used my fave tulip bouquet stamp called Tulips



I cut a penal slightly smaller than a base. Die cut a circle in it.


Using two circle dies of different diameter die cut a circle frame and some paper lace using my new Lace is grace die by our Russian brand Mimicut.


Stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink to color it with alcohol Chameleon pens, added some more depth with Chameleon wax based pencils.


And of course a bow to add some grace to the card.


I like drawing these tiny white dots to attract more attention to the image or to get rid of lots of empty space on the card.

You're a star Card

Hello there, crafty friends!!
Today i'd like to share with you a cute girlish card using For the Flower Girl image by Mo's digital pencil. What a cute little lady!


I looked the the image and tried to get rig wedding theme this girl was associated with and decided to make a girlish card to my friend who needed a reminder that she was a star :) 


I colored the girl in cool tones and wanted to support it with silver mirror star and greyish patterned paper.


I made a very flat shaker using only one layer of foam therefore filled it with flat confetti and sequins of similar colors i used for coloring the image. Oh, and colored I with alcohol Chameleon pens.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have an amazing day!

Coloring books for card

Hello there!
Happy National Coloring Book Day! do you like coloring books? I really do, because they already have so many different motives and ideas, all is left to do - to color the images and cut them out. 
For my cards I used Coloring pad by DCWV called icons. These two cards were made specially for Chameleon blog, where you can find dwnloadable instructions.
First card I'd like to show you is a fresh pineapple trio)) these images were cut out from the coloring book as well as the sentiment which I colored with alcohol Chameleon pens. All the instructions you can find over at Chameleon blog → HERE.


My additional card was also made with coloring book images. You know, coloring pads especially by DCWV are quite thick and they will serve you forever because there are tons of images.

For this card I also used Chameleon pencils together with Chameleon pens. I love this cool smooth color transition I got with the pencils.


Each dot here covered with Nuvo Glitter drops - White Blizzard.  Looks cute and nice to the touch.


Thank you so much for stopping by! Have an amazing day!
