How to: stitch it!

Woo hoo! Winter break! Schooooooool's out! 2 weeks of absolutely no kids LOL
We have a brand new challenge today at
Crafty Catz Challenge Blog Bagde
and our lovely Kim has chosen the theme
STITCHING (REAL OR FAUX)
Really easy and creative.
Our sponsor for this challenge is
So grab your needles or pens and make some stitches!

I've had this card in my mind for a few weeks. And it came out really interesting.
I am using the sponsor's digi 'Umbrella girl'. It's colored with Promarkes, paper pieced and stamped with THIS set of stamps. The whole stamp has been placed behind the digi.
All of these embellishments are from my stash. The only one thing new is a washi tape with the taylor tape.
The stitching is a stamp, too, from THIS set of stamps. There is no sentiment on the card, so it could be used for many occassions.
Thank you for visiting my blog!

How to: become a fashionista in Paris

Today I would like to share a card I made for a lady, who is a doctor and she dresses really glamour.
I am using the Kenny K's digi 'Fashionista' twice. They are both colored with Promarkers and distressed with distress ink.
Besides DP's I used some vintage printables and vintage stamps.
The sentiment says 'Best wishes' and it's a rubber stamp.

How to: become a floral bride - part 2

Today at
Feel Free to Grab My Badge for Your Blog!
our fabulous Design Team prepared some more examples with the latest release


The floral brides are waiting for you!


For this week I have chosen an other bride to celebrate with.
This time I have chosen the 'Single Lily Bride' and colored her with Promarkers. I also added some tiny gems to her veil.
The stamp is placed on a 3D foam and an embossed background. I used scraps to cut some additional elements with THIS Memory Box's frame. There is also this FIMO frame, which I broke by accident, but it fits here perfectly.
There is no sentiment on this card, you can write whatever you want inside.
