Teacup Full of Wishes

Hi again,

I have had fun again playing with more LDRS Creative Dies and the oh so cute LDRS Creative Teacup Full of Wishes by Polkadoodles coloured with distress inks.  I have used the Grace Build a Die Set, I love the elegant fluted edge of the circle and the dashed and dotted faux stitched effect of the inner circle and not to forget how awesome the stitched leaves are, I do love a leaf :)

I added two segments from the Dainty Doily Edge Die, another favourite.

The image was diecut using the Fancy Rectangles and Things die set.

To the floral bouquet I used Hybrid Tea Roses, 10mm open roses, sweetheart blossom, pixie blossom, meadow spray in white, rose buds and finished with an organza ribbon which I heated with my heat gun to give it that shabby vintage feel, love this effect.

The text was stamped from an LDRS Sentiment Set     which is currently on sale :)

Hope you like it :)

Hugs Tracy 

Joyous Winterday

Good day!!  Eeeeeeeeee I finally got my Maja Design "Joyous Winterdays" collection and have played just a little.  They are STUNNING and I can't wait to play some more.  I've used some Scrapiniec confetti stars and one teeny heart.  You HAVE to buy some of these!  (Or you could leave them all for me! 😀 ha ha ha!) They come on a sheets of 3 different sizes of stars and hearts.  What a perfect little embellie to add to any card.

I'm also excited to have received Joy's "Winter Wishes Birch Trees" die.  I have wanted something like this for years. Why haven't I bought any until now?  Wellllll, maybe I was waiting for just the right one.  LOL!  I also have the cutest deer from Fantasy wouldn't you say?  

I stamped out MERRY using Joy's new Scrabble Stamp and Die set, distressed the edges and popped them onto a strip of Maja paper.  I've also been at it again making more Foamiran flowers.

I made so many this time I had leftovers!  I've used Whimsy's "Lily/Poinsettia" die as well as their latest "Christmas Branches" die set and OH MY!  There are soooo many amazing dies in this collection that it is just PERFECT to have in your stash.  I know I'll be getting lots of use out of this one!  I added a Prima wax bow, some berries and a gorgeous Scrapiniec tatting chipboard heart.  Oh those are amazing too!

Awwwwwwwwww!!!!  That's all I could think when I seen this adorable image from Whimsy called Penguin Warm Winter Wishes.  I've colored it up with my Copics and added some glitter on most of the fur.

That's all for me today!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a great weekend!

Christmas Cheer

Hi Everyone,

I have been playing today with the NEW LDRS Winter Land paper pad.  These are so high quality that I used the matching papers to make all my diecuts too :)  I used the NEW LDRS Snowy Day Border and used one of the beautiful papers capturing the darker tones to the top of the snowflakes and it looks cool in real life.


I added Wycinanka Lace Baubles mixed and finished with a Foamiran Poinsettia using the smallest petal die from  NEW Rosy Owl Poinsettia die set, finished with heart headed stamens and added a wax cord bow and the holly leaves cut from the NEW LDRS Holly

I diecut the Christmas word and Cheer word twice, once in white cardstock and once from the Winter Land paper pad and offset against each other.

You can see in the below picture the gorgeous Snowy Day Border.

Christmas Skating

Good Morning,

With the weather finally getting a bit colder, we have actually had a couple of frosts. It's time to get cracking with the Christmas Cards & with all the gorgeous Christmas papers in store there is so much to choose from.

I have coloured up Ice Tilda using Inktense Pencils & have added some dots using a Silver Pearl Pen from Dutch Doobadoo. These are currently on sale in the store :-)

I have been out with the Snowtex again and have made all the flowers look lovely & snowy.

I have used the new Happy Holidays Holly Leaves die, you can see the holly leaves just peaking out from under the flowers.

I nearly forgot I have used some of the New papers from Maja Designs called Joyous Winterdays, these papers are just gorgeous & perfect for this time of year.

Well thank you for taking the time to look at my project, pop back tomorrow for some more inspiration from the DT.

Have a lovely day

Christmas Glove Card

Hello everyone!

Time before Christmas is time for feverish preparation for all kinds of handmade cards and presents. I've had so mush fun playing with anything Christmassy, glittering and sparkling stuff around me.

Today I'm going to show you one of my favourite shapes of a Christmas card, a Glove shape!

For the base of my glove-shaped card I used PION design, Long time ago in Bethlehem,which is ON SALE,  Holy Scripture paper sheet stitched with brown, masked with Viva Decor 3D Ice Effect White, sprinkled with Viva Decor Ice Crystals . 

I embellished my card with a Handmade Foamiran Poinsettia Flower made out of Poppy Red Foamiran. For the Holly leaves I used Sea Green Foamiran.

I also add some JoyCraft Berries- Natural, White and Red  Wax Cord, a cut of Lace Elenor, Miniature Larch Cones Shabby white and my favourite Vintage Seam Bindings. Accomplished my Glove card with a little wooden embossed  sentiment ''JOY'' on the right bottom corner.

Wishing all of you a happy week!

A fall-ish card

 Hello everyone!

Today I am sharing a card that has more a fall-ish look. I have made so many christmas cards already that I needed a break for them. And november is still fall, right? So, I sat down on my desk and this is what I ended up with:

I used the Card Art Window stencil by Dutch Doobadoo for the card base. It's cut from craft cardstock and then I've put some designer's paper from the Noor`s Favourite Paper Pad on the outside. 

The german text means "with you the world is a better place". I've cut it in a banner shape and put it across the bottom of my card. It's only glued down on the left side so the card can still be opened. Since the card didn't stay closed completly I've used two magnets. One is hidden under the designer's paper on the right half of the card, the other one is glued to the back of the banner. They now keep the card closed.

On the bottom left I've added some fall-ish decoration. I used some leaves from the Paper Art Autumn Leaves here and inked them up using different types of browns to give them a fall-ish look. I also added a few berries and a white Pixie Bloom here.

I drive my husband crazy with my need for symmetrie - not only craftwise. So to balance it out I also added some decorations to the top right of the card. It's made from Cheesecloth, an antique bronze heart charm and a bow from twine.
Sorry, I didn't realize the glue wasn't dried here when I took the picture - and when I did it was too dark already to get a decent one.

When the card is closed you can see a part of a scene through the cut out window. When you open the card you get a full look at the scene.

The inside of the card is covered with another designer's paper from the Noor`s Favourites Paper Pad.  I went with a blue one with dots here.

Here's a close up of the scene I created. I started with a die cut cloud in the back. The next layer is made from the Big Fence and Background die. I love how filigrane and detailed it is. 

I used two cattails from chipboard next and added a die cut flower to the right side.

All the other parts are made using the DooHickey Kit #16. I used the ladder in the set as a fence. And isn't that hedgehog a real cutie?

Since I didn't want the hedgehog feel lonely I added this fox stamp by Magnolia. It's out of stock in the store, but I am sure quite a few of you bought it and maybe I can give you some inspiration on how to use it.

I guess, next time will be a christmas themed card again - until then, have a happy day!

Hugs, Kathrin
