This is my card:

 
I chose this lovely couple (Mischievous Kisses from A Random Fan) which I colored with Copics and then I added papers from Lawn Fawn.
 
I find them very sweet!

Chipboard Crazy - Part 10.

Another new card today with one of the chipboard embellishments I found in my stash!
 
As my readers surely remember, back in April I decided to use some of my chipboard embellishments because I cannot keep collecting them... my drawers are about to explode!
(you can read all about my chipboard cards here, here, here, here, here, and somewhere else...).
 
This week I have a cards dedicated to travellers or to those who just dream about travelling:
 
 
Background paper is from American Crafts while arrows and suitcases are from Toga.
I then added LOTS of buttons and I started dreaming how I could fill my travel wish list...
 
I have a few more cards with my chipboard destash to show you so stay tuned!

Christmas Card Challenge # 33 - Color.

Welcome to a new Christmas Card Challenge!
 
We have colors for you this week!
 
 
In detail:

 
This is my card:

 
I reached for my Pennyblack stamps and chose this sweet couple of friends.
While looking for a wood shape for another project, I found a set of mini tags and I decided to stamp the sentiment on one of them. I love how it turned out!
The image is colored with Copics and glitter.
 
As usual, have a look here on our challenge blog to see the amazing work of my teamies and to see if you're a winner from last week!

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

Mid July already? My posts for CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra always find me surprised to see time flying by so quickly!
 
This is my card for this mid-July inspiration:
 
 
This time I chose another lovely stamp from our sponsor, Bugaboo Stamps. It is called Christmas Cupcake - Mistletoe and it's so yummy, isn't it?
 
I colored it with Copics and used a patterned cardstock I found in my stash.
 
I've just had a sneak peak at my teamies' cards and they are all so lovely!
Have a look here if you need more inspiration!

A Sweet Little Mermaid.

As a participant in Gerda Steiner June Challenge I was sent a new image for July and how cute it was!
 
This is my card:
 
 
I printed her on a background journaling card from Miss Tiina at Sugarhill, colored her with Copics and embellished the card with die cuts (Paper Smooches) and rhinestones.
Sentiment is from Sugar Pea Designs.
 
I love her and the little starfish she holds in her hand!

Christmas Card Challenge # 32 - Snowman.

I know, I'm a bit late for my weekly post for our Christmas Card Challenge but yesterday I was pretty busy and I didn't manage to write it.
 
Anyway, probably you've read everything in our challenge page, the theme this week is Snowman!
 
 
This is my card:

 
These adorable snowmen are from the Simply for Christmas set from DigiStamps Boutique. I colored them with Copics and glitter and used a paper from October Afternoon as background.
 
I love them!
 
If you need more inspiration in this sunny hot July (at least here in Italy) have a look here: our DT made stunning cards this week!

Chipboard Crazy - Part 9.

It's been a while since I last posted a card for my "Chipboard Crazy" series and it's time to show you another one, before summer ends!
 
 
This card is surely a summer-themed one! I love the colors and beachy feel!
And what about all those flip-flops!
They are not my favourite type of shoes but I have a collection of flip-flops which seems the one in this card, I love to match them with my beach outfit!
 
Well, another few pieces of my chipboard embellishments have been used, maybe one day they'll be finished!

Christmas Card Challenge # 31 - Sleigh.

Welcome to a new Christmas Card Challenge!
 
We have an inspiration photo for your this week:
 
 
A sleigh!

 
This is my card:

 
I reached for my beloved Eat Cake Stamps and chose Sleigh Ride: I love coloring it and positioning it on a house background. I made a similar card a couple of years ago and this time I chose a paper from The Little Yellow Bicycle.

CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra for July.

July! I can't believe it! Time really flies...
(That's probably what I say every month...).
 
Anyway, the first of the month means a new CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra! Are your ready?
 
This is my card:
 
 
Bugaboo Stamps being our sponsor, I chose AKV Nativity - Baby Jesus.
 
Stars made with a stencil (oops... I've just noticed that I forgot to add the star that came with the digi, I'm sorry!) and, since I didn't want it to be a very simple card, I only added matching rhinestones.
 
We have great DT cards to inspire you this month! Have a look here to see them all!
And since I'm a bit late with my post today, here you can find the winner from June Challenge!
