Christmas Card Challenge # 5 - Anything Goes!

Good morning!

Are you ready for a new Christmas Card Challenge even if Christmas is over?

Well, this week it's super easy: Anything Goes!

This is my card:
This is one of my fav stamps from Pennyblack and I already used it in the past. This year I've sold all the cards I had ready featuring these lovely caroling mice so I decided it was time to make new ones for next year.
I colored them with watercolor pencils and chose a lilac-pink pattern, inspired by a request I had several months ago from one of my lovely customers.

Here's what my teamies have made to inspire you:

I wish you all the best for a wonderful 2014!
I've great news to share soon, stay tuned!

Christmas Card Challenge # 4: Masculine.

Hello!
And welcome to a new Christmas Card Challenge!
This week the theme is to make a masculine card.

Here's my take:
I've used this lovely train from Doodle Dragon Studios, colored it with Copics and matched it with some bright papers (I'm sorry I can't find the list of supplies used for this card and I don't remember the brand...). Every boy loves trains, right?

 Here's the list of my teamies, let's have a look at their fabulous cards:

Christmas Card Challenge # 3: Words

Welcome to a new Christmas Card Challenge!
This week we have to make words the focal image.
It's not something I'm used to so it was pretty challenging for me but it's surely something I'll do more often!

This is my card:
I've used Christmas Words - Joy from Bugaboo Stamps and colored it with Copics and glitter. I printed the words on a paper from Pink Petticoat and added some rhinestones and a little red bow.

Have a look at what my fellow DT have created for this week!

A DT Call and my Top 5 for 2013

What a great year for Christmas cards!

I started making cards for this Christmas back in January, entering a few challenges.
Then, I had the chance to be chosen in Christmas Card Challenges DT and made Christmas cards weekly. I often managed to make more than one copy and found myself in September with a good number of cards for my Etsy shop.
I also had to make copies of existing cards for my Customers and all this has made me very happy.

Now that Christmas is just around the corner I'd like to sit down and make a list of my favorite cards for 2013.

I also take this chance to enter a new DT call for C.R.A.F.T. Challenge where I've been gently invited by Trimgym.

So, here's my fav cards for 2013 (in no particular order):





Hope you like them as much as I do!
I'm already working on new cards for 2014 so stay tuned!

Starfish for Christmas?

A very quick post today to show you a last-minute Christmas tag I've just finished.

The inspiration came from Meljen's Design Challenge: Christmas Tags.
I checked my Meljen's Christmas digis and I couldn't find the right one for what I had in mind. I checked my other folders and... I found the perfect one in my summer digis: Starfish Buddies!
I cut it leaving the shells out and voilĂ  a lovely couple of stars!
Here's my tag:
Aren't they super-sweet?
This is the magic of digi stamps!

This creation is for the following challenges:

Christmas Card Challenge # 2: Color Challenge

Welcome to week # 2 at Christmas Card Challenges and today it's all about Black and White!

From what I heard from some of my team mates it's not so easy to work with black and white only, although I had no problem and managed to make a pretty little card:

I was looking through my stash of printed/stamped images when I found this cute mouse, a freebie from Wee Stamps. I printed the star paper from a collection by Pink Petticoat, added some black touches here and there and colored my little mouse with greys and black. I needed a touch of color and I chose red for a couple of details.

Since I didn't have time to have a look at the cards my fellow DT made for this challenge, let's all have a look at them here or look at their blogs:

Welcome to a New Year of Christmas Card Challenges!

Let's start with Christmas Card Challenge # 1!
I'm happy to announce that I've been confirmed in the team for another term so don't miss our weekly posts with inspiring Christmas cards even once Christmas will be over!

For this first week the challenge is challenging for a stamper like me: No Stamping!

I reached for my little collection of chipboard icons and decided to make this card:
I love this cheerful Santa with candy canes and gifts!
No stamping means no coloring so this card was very quick to make... I should consider the no-stamping option more often!

Here's the link to my fellow DT cards, have a look at them and be inspired!

Pink & Black.

What do you think about Pink & Black together?
I LOVE it!

I've just finished a card (no, not a Christmas card...) with a black & pink scheme.
The inspiration came from Meljen's Designs Challenge: Black Out - Use black cardstock as your card base.
I've had the lovely Little Skunk digi from Meljen's Designs for a while and this was the perfect occasion to use it.

I made this card:
 I wanted the black cardstock to be visible and added some pink dots with acrylic paint. I used greys for the skunk so that the fur could be visible.
She''s so sweet!

This card is for the following challenges:

Faith.

This week the theme at Christmas Card Challenges is very inspiring: Faith.

I immediately reached for a digi stamp from Bugaboo called Mary and Joseph.

This is my card:

It's a simple card with a sweet image which reminds us of the true meaning of Christmas.

Have a look at the other cards from the DT:

Sabrina

Well, Christmas is just around the corner so start making some cards if you haven't already!

Bling!

I know, I know... I'm quite a lazy blogger lately but, although I have tons of new Christmas cards ready this year, I still have lots of custom orders to prepare...

This week the theme at Christmas Card Challenges is Bling!

You know how I love to add glitter and bling to my cards so this is the perfect excuse to use lots of them!

I made this card:
This LOVELY couple was the new Winter Toodle Couple from Broken Box Stock (available here in black and white and here in a fab colored version with classic Christmas colors).
I decided I wanted to change the colors a bit and decided to use a lilac card and colored the girl accordingly.
Then, it was time for the glitter... lots of glitter! And bling... lots of rhinestones!
I made this card for Christmas but I decided to use a neutral sentiment so it can work for winter birthdays, too!

Having so little time to blog, I haven't had any sneak peek at my fellow DT cards so I can't wait to see their creations! They are all here!

It's Sketch Time at Christmas Card Challenges!

This week we have to follow a sketch at Christmas Card Challenges:
Clean and simple, isn't it?

I decided it was perfect for an image I've wanted for a while in Karen's Doodles shop: Bigsby's Christmas Wish and I made this card:

The paper behind the image is from the Make It Merry paper pad from October Afternoon and the gold glittered cardstock is from DCWV.
What I enjoyed most while making this card was coloring the image which I find so sweet and with a touch of poetry!

Can't wait to see what my fellow DT memebrs have made with this sketch!

Elegant but Funny.

A while ago I discovered an image in Meljen's Designs shop I immediately fell in love with and I've finally been able to use it for a card and... it's NOT a Christmas card! I needed a break!

Her name is Little Lady Claire even if I always think about her as a funnier version of marie Antoniette!

I chose a palette of lilacs and light pinks with touches of glitter. I again wanted to use some of my paper roses to give a special touch to my card.

This card is for the following challenges:

Pop It Up!

It's time for a new challenge at Christmas Card Challenges and this week the theme is Dimension.

I love to add dimension to my cards, usually using 3D dots and this time I've used dots in various thickness to make my elves pop up in different ways,

This is my card:
I've used just one digi (a cute Christmas Elf by Jellypark): I printed it in different sizes and colored the elves using the same palette of classic Christmas colors and, of course, touches of glitter here and there. And I couldn't help but adding lots of rhinestones to make the card sparkle!

Let's have a look at what the other DT have created this week:

Bows.

This week I've had a great fun making my card for Christmas Card Challenges.
The theme is "Bows" and I decided to use Piper from By Lori Designs. My first idea was to put her over a ribbon with a big bow making a simple card but then I realized that she had a present with her and decided to stamp lots of presents in different sizes which meant... lots of bows!

Here's my card:

I kep the big bow and the simple layout I had in mind by using only one patterned paper as background.
I wish I had all those gifts under my Christmas tree!

Don't forget to have a look at the wonderful bows my fellow DT have used for their cards:

Relax!

A very quick post today: I want to show you a card I've just finished and... it's not a Christmas card!

I love making cards for Christmas but I'm working on them since January and I'm starting to be a bit tired...

Thus, I decided to make something with a new stamp from Broken Box Stock and made this card:

She is Bubble Bath Toodle (available here as black & white digi stamp and here in a very sweet colored version).
I chose the digi stamp but colored it with the same sweet colors as in the colored version.
Papers are from the Floral Pavillion paper pad by First Edition.

Ohh... I wish I had a bath tub to be like her!

This card is for the following challenges:

Paper Roses.

Ever since I discovered them on a card some years ago, I fell in love with tiny paper roses.
I bought some but I rarely use them. I never reach for them to give a special touch to my cards and projects and I need to be inspired by something to use them.

This week I was inspired by Christmas Card Challenge # 47: the theme is FLOWERS so I had to reach for my paper roses and use them!

She is Wryn Goes Caroling, one of my favorite stamps from Tiddly Inks. I used lilacs to make my card, adding purple and pink roses on one corner (sorry, but the paper is again an old one with no name on it!).
I love how it turned out, I should really rememeber to use my roses more often!

As usual, have a look at the stunning creations of my fellow DT members:

Tags.

I sometimes put my cards aside to make tags.
I love to make them, to prepare the piles of things I need to assemble my tags and I love to work in a sort of "mass production".
A few days ago I made these ones:

I first chose the image: I wanted to use the little mouse on the right and then I decided I needed to pair her with another image to make a set. They were both free from Dearie Dolls a while ago. I used a textured pink cardstock for the tag (I also made a blue version), a paper doily ribbon and a paper green stripe. Some snow dots made with paint and lots of glitter give the final touch.

Simple and oh... so cute!

Pink, Brown & White at Christmas Card Challenges.

Although I like unusual color combos for my Christmas cards, I wasn't too happy when I read I had to use Pink, Brown and White to make my DT card for this week's challenge at Christmas Card Challenges.
The only thing I managed to think about was a dog or a bear stamp I could paint brown... yes, not very original.

I ended up with two digis painted brown with pink and white accents and I asked my daughter to choose the best one for a Christmas card:

This digi is again from the CIJ 2013 set from Doodle Dragon Studios, a real mine for Christmas images with cute animals!
A kraft card and some light brown, pink and white details here and there and the card was done.
I actually love this color combo!
I didn't add too many embellishments because I wanted to make a card suitable for boys too. Do you think that the pink accents are too many for a male card?

Have a look at my fellow DT cards, you'll certainly get plenty of inspiration!

It's Time for an Inspirational Photo Challenge at Christmas Card Challenges!

This week I've had a great fun making my DT card for Christmas Card Challenges because the theme fitted one of my new stamps from Doodle Dragon Studios perfectly.
This image was probably the reason why I bought the Christmas in July 2013 set! Here's my card:

(I'm sorry but I don't manage to upload the inspiration photo from our Yahoo group, I've had so many issues since they renovated the site that everytime I need to work with it it's a nightmare!).

This snail is soooo cute with her home decorated for Christmas! She's definitely getting ready for Christmas!Patterned paper is from the Merry & Bright Collection from Cartabella, while the dotted paper is from Pink Petticoat.

Due to my problems with the Yahoo Group, I've had but a few sneak peaks of my teammates cards this week, so we all must have a look at their creations:

Halloween Princess.

Maybe it's a bit late to make cards for Halloween but I've had an image for almost one year and I wanted to use it!

This is my card:
And this cute girl disguised as a princess is Trick or Treat Princess Toodle from Broken Box Stock (as most of their digis it is available here as a black & white digi stamp and here in a very romantic colored version).

I've used some papers scraps I've had for ages (I'm sorry, no brand was written in my scraps) and some tiny Halloween-themed decorations on a black card base.

This card is for the following challenges:

Autumn Colors.

I love fall!
I esepcially love the colors, the light, the warm temperatures, almost everything.
My mum doesn't like autumn because there's winter just around the corner... I love autumn despite winter is just around the corner!

I was very happy when, checking if I was a winner in last week's challenge, I noticed that this week theme at Tuesday Throwdown Challenge was "Colors of Fall".

I've had this digi stamp from Broken Box Stock ready to be colored for a while and this challenge has given me the right inspiration to create a card with it, this one:
It is called Cornucopia (available here as black and white digi stamp) and I've really loved coloring it with my Copics!
The paper is from the Cosmo Cricket Nutmeg Collection.

Anything Goes! At Christmas Card Challenges.

When I'm feeling very creative, the "Anything Goes" theme in a challenge is always a joy!

I've had this image from Doodle Dragon Studios already colored for a while but I didn't manage to create a card with it.
A few days ago, I was diggind through my card samples and discovered this buried little kraft card and... it was THE right card for my little owl!


I had in mind a moon and a simple layout, without papers and embellishments and I finally managed to create it!

This card is for this week's challenge at Christmas Card Challenges where the theme is "Anything Goes".

As usual, take a look at all the other cards from my fellow DT, they are always amazing!

Clean and Simple.

I've recently discovered a new digi stamp company with adorable little critters and, of course, I had to have at least one of them...

I also discovered their challenge blog and, inspired by this week's theme, I've just finished a very clean and simple card where, for the first time, I've used colored pencils without watercoloring them.

Let me show my card first:

This lovely mouse is Columbo from Paper Pretties and the theme of their Challenge is "No Designer Paper".
Probably because I chose a pale grey Canson cardstock which is a bit textured, the job proved more difficult than foreseen but I love the result! A clean and simple look!

This card is for the following challenges:

Aren't Mice Cute?

Mice are one of those creatures that are awful if seen in real life but are terribly cute when illustrated.
I'm not one of those women who cries out loud at the sight of a mouse (not that I see lots of mice in my town) but they are related to dirt and diseases so I always stay far from them.
I remember when I was a little girl and spent my summer in my grandparents' house in the country that everythime a mouse was seen in the kitchen (very tiny mice actually), they threw open food away, washed the containers and everything in the kitchen.

I adore them when I see them illustrated and this week I chose a couple of very cute mice for my Christmas Card Challenge DT card.

The theme this week is a sketch, this one:
And I made this card:


I've used Mistletoe Mice digi stamp from Broken Box Stock (available here as a black and white freebie and here in a colored version) and my new papers from the Nordic Christmas pad from First Edition. I love this color combo of blue-greys and red!

Have a look at my fellow DT members' creations to get inspired!

Oops!

When I saw this image at Meljen's Designs I felt it was perfect for me:

No, not that I feel like a witch but I sometimes feel like this witch, a bit in trouble...
This stamp is called Witchy Brew and I've finally managed to make a card with it.
I found some lovely old Halloween papers in my stash (no clue about the brand, sorry) and I followed the orange + purple + yellow theme with my Copics, buttons, rhinestones and ribbon.

I'm Not Happy...

The ends of summer brings the beginning of the new soccer season, a thing I'm definitely not happy about.

It means that most Sunday afternoon are spent at home because my husband has to watch his fav team. Of course, sometimes my daughter and I do something else but I have to plan our weekends carefully.
In addition, we live near the stadium so when our local team plays at home, I have to plan invitations and car trips.

Despite my dislike of soccer, I've just finished a card with soccer as a theme:

I've used a Crafter's Companion stamp from the Mulberry Wood collection and colored it with Copics. I wanted a fresh look for these cute bears and this striped paper printed from a Pink Petticoat set is just perfect! It reminds me of summer days gone by...

I was inspired from lots of challenges this time:

Music! At Christmas Card Challenges

This week I've had great fun in creating my card for Christmas Card Challenges.
The theme is Music and, while looking through my stamps to find a proper image, I've come across Music Lucy from DigiStamp Boutique, a digi I bought a long ago and never used.

My challenge was to transform an everyday image into a Christmas one, a modern-looking girl into a girl suitable for a vintage-looking card.

I started with the papers: I've found the music paper in the Lost & Found Christmas paper pad from My Mind's Eye and matched it with another paper in the same collection.
Then I colored Lucy using the most "vintage" colors I had among my Copics and added a few details.

Here's my card:
I really love how it's turned out and, even if Lucy is still a modern-looking girl, she is at her ease in a vintage-looking card!

As usual, have a look at my teammates' cards, they always do a great job:
Sabrina

Well, Christmas is fast approaching but I should have made 30+ Christmas cards so far! Maybe I'll be able to make at least 50 by the end of November!

I'm entering this card into DigiStamp Boutique September Customer Competition.

Big Gifts!

When I saw this little baby with this huge present from Bugaboo Stamps I thought about my nephew, they have the same happy face. And, of course, I had to buy it.
3+ years later, I managed to make a card with it, with a boy in mind, a simple layout and bright colors.

Here's my card:
I've loved to use such a bright green card with yellow details which remind me of summer now that days are fresher and shorter, school is starting and lazy days are gone.

Snowmen.

Are you ready for another Christmas Card Challenge?

This week the theme is "Snowmen" and this is my card:
I wanted to create a clean and simple card and I used my very last turquoise card on which I attached the panel with this lovely DigiStamp Boutique image. I colored it with Copics and glitter and add just a few buttons. It's turned out exactly as I had in mind!

Have a look at what the team has created for this challenge:

September!

Where has this summer gone?
I can't believe we are in September.
School is starting in a couple of weeks, family vacation is over, lovely long hot sunny days are behind us...
Although autumn is my favourite season, I'm a bit sad when summer is over.

I must confess that in August I treated myself with some new stamps. Most of them being rubber, they are still somewhere across the ocean.
A couple of them being digis, I could use one to make the card for this week's challenge at Christmas Card Challenges. The theme is Something New and this is my card:

This lovely angel stamp is from Just Some Lines and, maybe for the first time, I've used a background paper with a scene on it. It's from the Christmas Fancy paper pad from Dovecraft and I simply added stars and a ribbon with bow.

Isn't she lovely?

Punches...

As you probably know, I love to make tags. For this reason, some years ago I bought a tag punch to make things easier.
I actually love to make tags in different sizes so I often find myself cutting them with scissors but the new challenge at Christmas Card Challenges was the perfect starting point to make my old punch into good use.

Last week I bought a new paper for my Copic markers and I wanted to try it.
Even if it's quite thick, it worked perfectly in my printer and I managed to create these lovely tags:
I may seem a little boring, since I used this image from DigiStamp Boutique only a few weeks ago for a card, but I love it so much that I wnated to make something else with it.
They are Cute Nativity Kids and I loved the fact that I could print, punch and color my tags without effort!

Don't miss my fellow DT members' creations, have a look at their blogs:
