I am super excited to be joining the 7th Annual Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop organised by Newton’s Nook Designs! For this very special event I created this cute Christmas card using one of my favourite holiday stamp sets.
I started with stamping and colouring the cute bear in the car from the Winston’s home for Christmas set with Copic markers and fussy cut it out.
While it was drying I cut a piece of light grey cardstock with the same die to be the road, and a white scalloped rectangle from the same die set to be in the background. I decided to add a silver metallic layer in between the two just because I love layered cards.
The sentiment I white heat embossed on silver metallic cardstock and die cut it with the rounded tag die from the Tag times two die set. I also die cut some pine from dark green cardstock and a red bow using the Pines and holly die set. I layered these on top of each other and assembled the scene.
I added a red and white striped patterned paper to a white top folding card base before adhering the scene in place. I used a clear shimmer pen on the bow and the presents, added glossy accents on some parts of the car and ribbons and my card was all done!

I am so excited to show you what I have created for the Pink and Main and Thermoweb Collaboration. For my project today I was playing with white Flock Transfer sheets and Red Glitz Glitter gel.
I started with the background: on a piece of red cardstock I secured the Four Point Star stencil with Pixie Spray to make sure it will not move while I am applying the Red Glitz Glitter gel. Believe me this spray is a game changer! No more gel seeping under the stencils! It ensure perfect results every time and can be washed off the stencil simply with warm water and a nail brush. I used a Stencil Pal to apply the glitter gel – it is so easy to get smooth results with this tool!
Until my panel was drying I stamped the cute owl from Howlidays and quickly coloured with Copic markers. I used traditional colours but it would look gorgeous in any colour combination. I used the coordinating die to cut it out.
To create the focal point I wanted a frame around my little owl, so I die cut the Wreath Base die from white Flock Transfer sheet. I love the touch, it is so warm and adds a lot of interest to a simple die cut! The thickness of it is just perfect, the die makes the edges beautifully rounded!
The sentiment I stamped on a banner which I created with the banner stamp from Sketched Easter. I heat embossed it on dark brown cardstock with Hot Chocolate Embossing Powder. It gives a shiny tone-on-tone look. I curved the Merry Christmas sentiment from the Howlidays stamp set to fit in the banner and white heat embossed it.
I die cut the background with a stitched rectangle die and assembled the card. I added some clear shimmer to the ribbons and covered them with glossy accents just as the beak of the owl. I used a black glaze pen on the eyes to make it shiny.
It is my turn on the Pink and Main blog to show you some super cute inspiration for the upcoming holidays.
I was scrolling through my stash and I found the gorgeous Bubbly Border die set which I have never used before. I die cut the outline die from Sparkle sheets and the bottom part from plain white and green cardstocks. I layered them on top of each other and adhered them to a stitched rectangle I cut from kraft cardstock.
For the focal image I used one of my favourite stamp sets called Santa Paws. I stamped, coloured and die cut the kitty with the tree and popped it up on a white Nested Hexagon. I layered a red scalloped one under it to make it more festive.
The sentiment I stamped in green and added some clear shimmer to the santa hat, presents and Christmas baubles. I finished this cute scene with glossy accents on the bows and ornaments. I adhered it all to a white card base and I was done with this cute holiday card.
I wish you liked my inspiration today and will check back again soon. Until next time, happy crafting!
I am here with you with my weekly inspiration for Pink and Main. I brought you a clean and simple yet super cute Christmas card.
I stamped and coloured the cute snowmen from the Snow Sweet stamp set using Copic markers. I cut them out with the coordinating dies. What I love the most about Pink and Main dies apart from being pink is that they come separated. No need to cut them apart.
For the background I chose patterned paper from the Jolly paper pad. I also die cut 3 white Reverse scallop circles and stacked them together. One of the inner parts I inked up with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink and paper pieced it in the middle.
The holiday sentiment is from the Howliday stamp set, I stamped it above the snowmen with red ink and above it the Snow word from Snow Sweet.
I covered their outfit with clear shimmer and added glossy accents to the noses and ice.
I hope you liked my card today and will pop in again soon for more inspiration. See you soon,
I am back today with a very easy technique to create stunning Christmas cards. This design is also easy to mass produce! I used products from Pink and Main.
I took a piece of watercolour paper and white heat embossed almost all the snowflakes from the Flurries stamp set. I used a stamp positioner so I had to find the arrangement only once and it allowed me to stamp again and again.
Then I sprinkled some Violet Brocade Shimmer Powder on one panel and Lilac Waterfall on the other. I spritzed it with water and let the colours spread. I heat set it with my heat tool and repeated the process.
While I was at it I also die cut a stitched square panel from blue cardstock and from white glitter paper using the Frames Squared die set. I cut the scalloped square from purple cardstock and some pine trees from dark green using the Forest Scene builder set.
Before assembling the scene I used a Versamark pen on the hat of the snowman and on the trees and poured WOW White Puff embossing powder on it. I heat set it with my heat gun, I love the texture it gives!
I also added a white metallic cardstock layer in between the scene and the purple mat. I can never have enough layers I guess 🙂
The sentiment I stamped in purple on a subtle checked patterned paper from Sunny Studio and added the focal panel too.
A bit of clear shimmer on the scarf and hat plus a bit of glossy accents finished it off.
I hope you enjoyed my card today and will check back later for a not typical coffee card! See you in a few hours!
I love the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop so much that I cannot stop creating coffee cards. I also try to stick to colouring every day a little bit, as therapy advised by the gorgeous Kathy Racoosin. Today’s cuties are from Hello Bluebird, one of my favourite companies.
I started with stamping and colouring some of the images from the Skating party stamp set. I used Copic markers in vibrant colours. I cut everything out with the coordinating dies.
Then I worked on the background: I heat embossed the Snowfall background stamp with WOW white puff embossing powder on a kraft top folding card base. To make it colder I sponged white pigment ink on the edges of the card base – I feel the instant breeze!
To set the scene I created a snowbank from white cardstock using the Land Border dies from Newton’s Nook Designs and I also die cut a couple of pine branches (Holly and Pin die set) from the same white cardstock. I used Pine Needles Distress ink to add colour.
The sentiment is die cut 2 times from white cardstock and once from blue glitter cardstock. I stacked them together and added a white heat embossed sentiment under it.
As a finishing touch I used a black glaze pen on their eyes, a clear shimmer pen on the caps and glossy accents on the noses and cups.
