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:

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:


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

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!
Their cards are all here:

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:


If you haven't started your Christmas cards yet, be inspired by our creations and let's go to work! Christmas is only 51 days away!
