With Love at Christmas

With love at Christmas starts the wish for you today! May you have a wonderful time together with your dear ones! While having a blast on Christmas days with my family, I’d like to share some more of my holidays’ crafts. I made more than 200 cards and it will be a true challenge to share them all with you.


imgn0530The one here is a very simple but elegant one. I used a ‘Create Christmas‘ stamp to build the background. The ink I used is ‘Chocolate’ – Artiste dye ink. Sequins in white, gold and chocolate give the necessary sparkle together with some gold thread wrapped around the front card base. A white string bow is what gives some dimension and brings the focus to the top of the card. All these bits and pieces can be found at any haberdashery. I got mine from my neighbours’ store.


imgn0547I’ve always wished to go for a look just like this one. And I was a bit not sure of the result in the past. But once I tried it, would definitely make me apply the pattern again.
Hope you like it too!

With all these said, I let you enjoy the second day of Christmas together with your dear ones!

Bells are ringing

Hello again, dear friends and crafters! Can you hear the bells are ringing? They are just letting us know that soon we’re all gathering in our homes and by our Christmas trees.


imgn0071The cards today feature a mini Xcut die with some filigree bells.
I used kraft recycled card in different colours and also some metallic/shimmery and glittery ones. The twine ties the bells and it is either simple in white, red, purple or in assorted Christmas colours. The inks match the colour combination of the die-cuts and the twine. And for these cards I chose two sentiment stamps from Docrafts Create Christmas series sets: Merry Christmas and Seasons’ Greetings.


imgn0064These cards match the challenge of making at least 5 cards with the same stamp or die. They also go in the CAS (clean and simple) category of cards. The die-cuts are pretty intricate but I love them.

imgn0070Many thanks for stopping by and wishing you all the best,

Snowflakes, Snowflakes

Hello,there! Just a few days left until Christmas and I would love seeing some snowflakes falling! It would be great!


imgn0168Now, till we have some real ones, please, let me show you some stamped ones.
For this card, I used the snowflakes from Docrafts’ Create Christmas stamp set. It is one that I received as a gift with my Creativity Magazine last year (I think).
I stamped them using Dew Drop fast drying pigment ink in Moonlight White.
The details on the snowflakes are metallic accents using some Sakura gelly roll pens, Papermania watercolour pencil in red and/or my Uniball- Angelic Colour in white.
I chose the sentiment from the Krafty Christmas stamp set from Trimcraft. I’ve recently used the reindeer stamp from the same set.


imgn0174Each of the cards has either twine or ribbon tied on the front cover in order to add dimension and interest. I used Fancy Twine and some twine and ribbon (bought from a local haberdashery store owned by my neighbour).
I love that they are CAS (clean and simple) – not too much, not too many.

Hope you like them too and thank you for visiting my blog.
