Hogs & Kisses!

Today I'm happy to show you my card with this month image from Gerda Steiner Designs: it's Parachute Piggy which I had for free since I participated in the August Challenge.
 
Here's my card for the September challenge:
 
 
This adorable piggy digi stamp was perfect for my new paper from Bella Blvd: I colored it with Copics and positioned it with 3D dots. I then added cloud diecuts (Toga France and Taylored Expressions) and a funny sentiment (MFT).
 
Isn't it lovely?

CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra for September - Mid-Month Inspiration.

Mid-September means one thing in my town: schools start.
 
And this means the very end of summer laziness, of days to fill with new projects and adventures, of mornings starting at 10 (well, my days start much earlier but I keep quiet until my daughter is ready to wake up).
 
But it also means it's time to give you some more inspiration for our CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.
 
This is my card:
 
 
This time I chose Winter Birds - Scarf from our sponsor Bugaboo Stamps and some scraps from an old 6"x6" stack from Papermania.

Sweet Little Heart Tags.

Good morning!
 
I'm here today to show you some new tags I've just finished:
 
 
These cute girls and angels are from Dearie Dolls and I thought they were perfect to be used in some metallic heart tags I had in my stash.
 
I've colored them with Copics and made different tags for various occasions: Get Well, Thank You and I Love You, perfect to be added to a bunch of flowers or a chocolate box!
 
In detail:
 
 
They'll be soon in my shop if you are interested.

CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra for September.

Welcome September!
I love fall but I'm not sure I'm ready to see summer go, it's been a hot, lovely summer and I'm a bit sad to say goodbye to lazy days, craft projects and time with my daughter.
 
Anyway, it's time for a new CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra!
Here's my card:
 
 
I've chosen something a bit different this time: Skelekinz - Present (from our sponsor Bugaboo Stamps). It's not a Christmas stamp but I loved her face and thought it was funny to use her in a Christmas card, maybe good for a teeneager.
I've opted for unusual colors too: black for the background and purple for the gift.
I love this girl, she makes me smile!
 
If you entered our August challenge, you can find winners here.

Christmas Card Challenge # 38 - Anything Goes.

Welcome to our Christmas Card Challenge!
 
We have Anything Goes this week!
 
 
I again opted for some tags:

 
I found these glittery pink tags and these sledge die cuts in my stash and decided to use them together.
I punched some presents and added them on top of the sledge.
Pink, gold, glitter and... presents! Perfect for Christmas!

Christmas Card Challenge #37 - Color.

Time for our monthly Color Challenge here at Christmas Card Challenges!
 
 
This week I decided to make a big tag:

 
The image was an old Pink Petticoat one which I printed on cardstock and colored with Copics.
 
I then chose a striped metallic paper from First Edition and mounted everything on a silver tag from my stash.
How cute is this little cat with its stocking!?

CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra for August - Mid-Month Inspiration.

Here I am again with a new Christmas card for this mid-month post for CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra for August:
 
 
I chose these super sweet kids (AKV Christmas - Peeking from Bugaboo Stamps) and I colored them with Copic markers.
My original idea was to cut them in a circle and make a card and I actually cut the circle and was ready to make the card.
While looking for a suitable card base, I found this house-shaped card from a magazine and I thought it was perfect for these kids!
Thus, I printed a new image and colored it.
The patterned paper was the one I had chosen for the previous card: I still had a scrap which was perfect to trim and use as the roof.
I LOVE it!!!
