Christmas Card No. 4 | Clearly Besotted

Hi there! Finally I could play with the sweet new Clearly Besotted stamps :) I am a big fan of their designs especially in combination with Zig clean color real brush markers.

This time I created three cards using the new 'all in onesies Christmas' set and the older sets layered wreath and 'let's prance'.




I started out by creating the wreaths using Lawn Fawn ink. Then I used salty ocean distress ink to create kind of a frame around the wreath. I also added water droplets for the lovely distress look. 


Then I stamped the images with archival jet black and colored them in with Zig clean color real brush markers. I fuzzy cut them and adhered them to the card. For the berries I decided to add red glitter nuvo drops. The sentiment is also from the older set layered wreath.


Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!

Christmas Card No. 3 | Avery Elle

Hello everyone! Clean and simple cards are one of my favorites. So I created this CAS card for Christmas with the sweet Avery Elle stamps from the set 'Winter Woodland Wonders'.


First I stamped a white cardstock with the 'Forest & Deer Bold Prints' in LF manatee dye ink. After that I die cut the piece of stamped paper and another white cardstock with the 'Essential Dover-Up horizontal' die. I adhered the pieces to a white cardbase and then I stamped the sweet images and colored them in with Zig clean color real brush markers.


I created the sentiment with the 'calli letters' and 'calli upper letters' which means "happy holidays" in English.


Once everything was adhered I used the clear Wink of Stella brush to add shimmer.

Birthday card for Lukas | Mama Elephant

Hello everyone! After a busy week I share with you a birthday card that I created for a birthday party my nephew attended.


For the first step I diecut the name of the birthday kid with 'balloon letters' dies from Mama Elephant. Then I stamped some of the cute images from 'little cat agenda' and colored them in with Zig clean color real brush markers (without using water).



With the help of the Misti tool I lined up the coordinating stamps 'balloon letters' with the already diecut letters and stamped them with different Lawn Fawn dye inks directly onto a white cardbase. Then I blended matching distress inks for the background and splatterd some water droplets.

I adhered the colored front piece with foam tape and added some Nuvo drops.



A quick but very cute and personal birthday card!!!

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!!

Beary good birthday | MFT

Hi there! I wanna show you my first attempt at coloring my own background scene. I am far away of being good at it but I thought I give it a try and really enjoyed the process.


I stamped the sitting bear from 'polar bear pals' from MFT in Archival jet black ink. Then I draw ice bricks with a light blue zig clean color real brush marker. I used a water brush to soften the edges and create the watercolor look. When everything was dry I used more blue zig clean color real brush markers and created the frozen water on which the bear is sitting.


(with a second card I made)

I colored in the polar bear and added the sentiment. Last but not least I diecut a frame with one of the 'stitched square scalloped frame' dies from glitter cardstock and added some Nuvo jewel drops.

Although it's far from being a "masterpiece" I decided to enter it to the MFT card design superstar contest because I had so much fun during the coloring and I guess it hasn't to be perfect :)


And here the result of the second card:



Thanks for stopping by and have an amazing day!
