Moving

Hi everyone!

I'm leaving the current apartment tomorrow morning and travel to Ivanić-Grad, where my new address will be. Our plan was to move on December 15th, but due to some unexpected situation, we changed the date and decided to leave earlier.

Anyway, due to change of plan my week was super busy and exhausting. Due to this extremely exhausting situation, I postponed all activities here on my blog. I won't be posting neither do anything until I settle down in Ivanić-Grad.

I Love Math Challenge #11 winners will be announced here on my blog next week, latest December 16th 2018. 

Thank you so much for understanding.

Enjoy and smile!! :o)

Chubby Penguin Card II (Kitty Bee Designs Spotlight)

http://kittybeedesigns.blogspot.com/

Hi everyone! :o)

Today is my turn to be on the spotlight over at Kitty Bee Designs and I made this CAS (clean and simple), Chubby Penguin Card II. :o)



My card is a CASE of my own card I made last year: Chubby Penguin Card. I copied it completely, just used another cute penguin image and placed two stars differently. :o)


How I made my card....

I printed the penguin on a watercolor paper and left him dry through the night to prevent ink smearing. I colored the penguin in watercolor technique, using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut the penguin, traced edges with a black marker and softened the penguin on a soft working mat using stylus ball. I printed another penguin on a white cardstock paper, colored him in black, fussy cut him, leaving thin border around him, and glued watercolored penguin over him.

I stamped a sentiment on a top folded white card base, glued 3-D foams on the back of the penguin and placed him on a card. As a finishing touch, I embellished the card with blue enamel stars. :o)


Card measurements: 102 mm x 134 m(4" x 5 1/4")

Merry Christmas Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)


Hi everyone! :o)

Today is my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this Merry Christmas Card:o)


To make this card I used stamps from three ADORABLE Jane's Doodles stamp sets'St. Nick''Driving Home For Christmas' and 'Warm and Cozy'.


How I made this card...

I stamped a reindeer on a watercolor paper and colored him in watercolor technique using Distress Ink Ground Espresso. After drying I fussy cut the reindeer, traced edges with black marker and stamped another reindeer on a white cardstock paper, colored him in black and fussy cut, leaving thin white border around him. Then I glued together two reindeer. I did this because the watercolor paper I use is very thin and I needed a bit thicker image. As a finishing touch, I drew white and black details on reindeer's scarf using a white pigment ink and black fine liner. :o)

Then I worked on a background. I heat embossed in white stars on a Kraft paper panel and glued the panel on a white top folded card base. I cut two hills from the white cardstock paper, glued one directly on the panel, added some foam on the other hill and glued it on the card. Then I drew white dots on the panel to create more snowy effect. I must admit this is my favorite snowy background on Kraft. :o)

I LOVE dimension on my cards. :o) When creating scenes like on this card, I like to use various dimensions of 3D foam. It gives even more interest. :o)

I heat embossed in white a sentiment on the Kraft paper and cut a stripe shape I liked. I glued 3D foam squares on the back of the reindeer and the sentiment, placed them on the card and my card was finished. :o)

1) As You Like It ChallengeDo you prefer Rubber or Digis?
This is my 2nd entry to this challenge.
I use and like them both, rubber and digis, as they both have their own benefits, but like rubber (and clear acetate) stamps just a bit more. This is for a reason I really enjoy having a stamp in my hands and actually stamp. Also, I spend less time creating a layout for my card with physical stamps than with digis, I can stamp wherever I want and can use stamps for more crafting techniques, for example heat embossing. :o)
