My DT card for this challenge is a card I made for my 3 years old niece.
She's a doll and a little chef to her 4 years old brother. That's why I have chosen this digi from Pink Gem Designs 'Chloe in knitted hat'. It's colored with Promarkers and distressed with distress ink. I also stamped her all around with THIS set of stamps.
Papers used for this cards are from Bo Bunny's collection 'The avenues', which I really love. Lace is from my stash, as well as the pearls.
The sentiment is a freebie from HERE. It says 'Lots of wishes for your 3rd B'day'.

How to: not to be a bad witch

Happy Halloween everyone! Come to the dark side, we have cookies!
This is a very special day at

Just check the Sami Stamps store or our Facebook fan page to find out more!
And the most amazing thing is that Samantha let us - the Design Team - choose, which stamps are going to be on sale or deals! How cool is that?

I have chosen this beautiful witch with her best friend.
This 'Whiskers under my broom' stole my heart at the first sight. What a beautiful witch and a cute kitty! The stamp is colored with Promarkers and placed on a 3D foam. I made a distressing with two distress inks.
When I saw the stamp, I've had this pleated ribbon in my mind at once, don't know why. The papers come from a winter collection, but they suit here quite well.
The sentiment says 'You call me a witch... like it was a bad thing!' I made it by myself and placed on a 3D foam, too.
Thank you for visiting my blog! Check out all of the creations prepared for this crazy sale, they are all wonderful!

How to: thank a parish priest

To keep some balance in my latest cards, today I would like to share a DT card made for the new challenge at

No monsters, witches, scary demons, but... a parish priest!
Our theme this fortnight is
You can use all of them. Or just one. It's up to you.

So, I have been requested to prepare a thank you card for a parish priest, who's leaving the town and his parish. I prepared an easel card using only black and white colors.
It was not so easy to find a proper digi, fortunately you can always count on Melonheadz. This digi is a freebie and you can grab it HERE. The image is colored with Promarkers and I had to add glasses, as the priest wears glasses.
We live in an industrial town, where there are lots of coal mines, so I made an industrial background. The papers are from a Polish company Magiczna Kartka. Flowers are handmade. Ribbon and button are from my stash.
The sentiment says 'Thank you Parish Priest Edward'. There's also the name of the town and the date of parish.

How to: get the gothic look

It seems like I made more Halloween cards this year than I planned LOL 
I have been invited to be a GDT for the next two challenges at
and I am so happy! The first one starts today and the theme is
Make us scream!

I decided to go gothic style this time.
For this card I used a Jade Dragonne's image again. This one is called 'Gothic bat', I colored it with Promarkers and distressed with two distress inks.
This time I used some digital papers and printables, mostly from HERE and HERE. Black gause, black flowers, dark butterflies and some metal embellishments refer to the gothic style.
There is no sentiment on this card, so it can be used for many occassions.
Thank you for inviting me and for visiting my blog!

How to: be a city star

This is my second post for today, busy busy Sunday, but I love spending my free time that way. This time I would like to share an X-mas card (7th this season, while I should be making 17th!).
For this creation I used this Kenny K's fancy digi 'City Star'. It's colored with Promarkers and placed on a 3D foam. Coloring of this digi took me the most part of time while making this card LOL
I used the 'Winter wishes' paper pack from Echo Park, the very first prize I've ever won in challenges. I also added some gems and used an embossing folder from Cuttlebug.
I also wanted to
that's why there is a mix of paper stripes on the card. The sentiment is also stamped on a scrap and it says 'Merry X-mas'.

How to: tell a horror story

You scared yet? Bwuahahahaha... Halloween is definitely coming, so our next challenge at
is... you wouldn't ever guess... no, not Halloween
Our sponsor for this week is
They have got lots of freebies, so you better check this out.

We do not celebrate Halloween in Poland, but there are so many horro movie lovers, I've decided to make a Halloween card. The most scary horror movies I remember were those without any drop of blood. It's the 'normal' people we should be afraid of.
I used two digis to create this scene. First is our sponsor's 'Wonky House', and the second one - Jade Dragonne's lineart 'Bunny'. This is the first time I used a greyscale only using the 'cool grey' set from Promarkers. And I have to admit this adorable girl looks really scary. You came to the wrong neighbourhood!
For this card I used one paper only from Memory Box's collection 'Nightfall'. I also added some black cardstock elements cut with dies and some gems as stars, all from my stash.
There is no sentiment this time, so you can use this card for many occassions.

How to: thank a fitness lady

My DT card for this challenge is one of these I prepared for my fitness team. This one is for a girl who teaches Pilates at my Dance and Fitness Studio. She also deals with bodybuilding and looks like from a fitness magazine.
She looks exactly like in the picture, the only difference is in her arms, she has more muscles there than an average man LOL I am using a Saturated Canary's stamp 'Jamie workout'. It's colored with Promarkers and distressed with two distress inks.
For this card I have chosen one of my favourites combos: blue and brown. I added a ready-to-use bow, some washi tapes and gems.
The sentiment says just 'Thank you' and I started to write this card inside before I realised I didn't take the pictures!
