How to: become Marylin Monroe

Hello everyone, I hope this sunny and warm autumn weather will stay with us for longer. I caught cold, but it doesn't matter, it's always better to see some sun through the window.
Our new challenge at
has been chosen by our lovely Nick and I really love this one
PRETTY WOMEN
It's all about you, Ladies!
Our sponsor for this one is
where you can find so many suitable digis for this challenge! And many more...

We have also got a GDT call and some DT announcement on the challenge blog, so you better visit it!

I fell in love with this stamp at the first sight. And my card couldn't be more obvious.
I am using the sponsor's digi 'Blonde Bombshell' - it's a timeless 'pretty woman' look! I colored the digi with Promarkers and placed it on a 3D foam.
I've taken out my black and white paper pack collections and tried to

Funny thing, there's always something left... Anyway, I embellished the card with ribbon, a button, some pearls and gems.
The sentiment says 'For your B'day' and it's a rubber stamp.

How to: travel around the world

I would really like to travel somewhere at the moment. Just for a week to escape from this chaos. This is probably the hardest September I remember at school. Meh...
Today a new challenge starts at
Blog Badge
and this time the theme is
VINTAGE
Here's what you can win at this challenge


My DT card is a B'day card for a travel lover.
For this card I used one of the first stamps I've ever won - a Tiddly Inks's 'Gonna miss you'. It's colored with Promarkers and placed on a 3D foam.
I made a collage background using a travel themed paped pack and some vintage printables.
There's also the girl's name - Aneta.
The sentiment is a rubber stamp and it says 'Best wishes'.

How to: take an autumn walk

This is my second card to share today, as I am trying to take part in some challenges I like. 
You can smell the fall in the air already here, the evenings are colder and the days are much shorter. I am waiting for the 'Polish Golden Fall', the most colorful part of fall, when the leaves are red, brown, yellow, orange and green, and it's still warm and sunny. 
For this card I used this freshly bought Kenny K's rubber stamp 'Jasmine' - it's colored with Promarkers and distressed with distress ink. I also added some swirls all around using THIS set of silicone stamps.
This card is made according to the sketch from Card Mania
I added some lace, ribbon, twine, a wooden button and some punched leaves.
The sentiment says 'Best B'day wishes' and it's a freebie from HERE.

How to: dress with petals

Coming back to normal (a little) today I would like to share my DT card prepared for the brand new challenge at
which is really nice
FEATHERS AND / OR FLOWERS
And we have a suitable sponsor for this one, which is
with their beautiful, romantic stamps.

This is my first card using Aurora Wings stamp ever.
To be honest, I find their stamps so difficult to color, there are so many details on them! That's why I have chosen this 'Whimsical Cosmos Sprite' - it seemed easier to color for me. It's colored with Promarkers and distressed with distress ink.
As you can see, I used both feathers and flowers. I also added a little tag and some handmade flowers.
The whole card is made according to the sketch from Creative Inspirations
The sentiment says 'Best wishes' and it's a rubber stamp.

How to: stay CAS

Hurry, hurry, hurry, quick, quick, quick, that's how I spent my last week. Will the next one be any better?...
Today's challenge at
is being hosted by our talented Jac and she has chosen it to be
CLEAN AND SIMPLE
Perfect for me at the moment.
We have two sponsors for this week
and

In fact I find it very difficult to make a good CAS card. I cannot fight that impression that I should add something more... and more... and here. But this time I've concentrated on coloring.
I am not the Master of Promarkers, but it was a pleasure to color this sponosor's stamp. I am using 'Fae 28' - adorable fairy with flowers in her hair.
There's not much added beside that, I only used some washi tape and made an ink distressing. There is no sentiment, so it can be a card for many occassions.

How to: spend all day in a boat

I think the TGIF season is opened now! Phew, what a week!
We are coming back after the summer break with a brand new challenge at
which is hosted by our talented Christine and she has chosen
ONE FOR THE BOYS
theme. As I said many times before: it's never enough to have some boy's cards in your collection.
We are sponsored by
and they are very generous for the winner.

Here's my DT card for this challenge.
I am using the sponsor's digi 'Gus fishing', which I colored with Promarkers. I also added some glossy accents to his glasses.
I added some twine and metal embellishments to this card, but not too many, to keep this card as male as possible.
The sentiment is translated from the original stamp.
