Sweet shabby chic

It´ll be a really short post, really busy lately. I have so many projects made but no photos yet...

This is a card I made with the papers I recieved recently, beautiful. So inspiring.


and a bit closer

I used paper with sweet classic design (this one)
the key = Shrink Plastic by Ranger (see here)
I almost didn't use any Distress Inks for this shabby look, just a bit for the clock and the key (Framelits die here)

Memories of a good day.

Hello there,
Haven't posted anything recently as I am busy preparing projects for the summer. Some of them are going to be new, some of them "recycled", but definetely all fun and beautiful.

In a meanwhile I just finished a LO that was mid-way since March. Yep, it was a long one. Every once in a while I would get it out, add something and put aside... Maybe because I wanted to make it special. It was such good day that I wanted it to be remembered.
We were in Alicante, I took a picture of my daughter drinking her milkshake which by pure coincedence was exact colour of her hair.

(it is a A4 size canvas)

Day&Night part II: Night

(part I is here)

... And here is the Night.
I don't know if I invented a bicycle or I actually found a way how to ink these tiny flowers nicely  with Distress Inks. I used my old Sizzix die for these tiny flowers and Thinlits Garden Greens by Tim Holtz.

Day&Night part I: Day

Lately I am making not just one card, but two or three at once. Sometimes they are similar, sometimes not.
Inspired by a design paper, so beautiful and detailed, I have used some Sizzix dies (old and new: Sizzix die for these tiny flowers and Thinlits Garden Greens by Tim Holtz), almost no ink (which is unusual for me) just to keep it fresh and light

Spring, Easter, Sunshine)))

Hey there,

Finally it started to warm up (and stays that way which is more important) though I know that it is not quite correct to compare mediterranian "cold" with... ermm... Siberia for example)))

Anyways days are longer, sun is shinier, it smells like orange blossom and Easter holidays are round the corner.
I made a few cards with flowers and blossoms, here is one of them

(y como voy a compartir ese post en el grupo Scrap Lowcost esta vez intentaré traducirlo todo al español)

Por fin llegó la primavera: los días son más largos, el sol brilla más, ese olor de azahar... y las fiestas de la Semana Santa (por fin vacaciones de la niña, la pobre está agotada por los exámenes)
He terminado unas cuantas tarjetas con flores etc.



and closer

As I said before it can be a birthday party invitation - there actual card is a pocket holding a card where you can write your message.

LOVE cupcakes

Can you believe it's March already!?
I finally sent off the card I am sending as an "Inter" in a scrapbooking group, hope my opponent likes it.

Anyways...I decided to make a cupcake card, everyone loves cupcakes, right? I bet this one is cherry flavoured))) The pattern on the paper also looks like cherry blossom!

So it is a decorated Grungebook base by Tim Holtz.

Double gate fold card. With a gate.

Well sometimes I do take things literally, like in this weekend project. So if it is a GATE fold card there should be a gate somewhere, right?

I was going to use my new stamps... but remembered about them only when the photos were already taken. Almost no inks involved (unusual for me), cute delicate chipboard that adds some texture, embossed garden gates and handmade flowers.

Closed...

If you have no watercolours...

... No pencils, no Copics... But you really really want to try to draw along with an artist you adore...
Well the solution is to use whatever you can find! :-P Like Distress Inks, some water and a brush.
