This Week Card

23 October 2014


A bit late for a cardmaker but I finally started to make Christmas cards!! I set myself a challenge...I have to create 200 Christmas cards before the 7th of December...will I succeed? With a toddler and a 6 months old baby messing around the house things can get complicated and time can run pretty fast, so wish me luck! So far I made 3, the first you can see it on the 11th of October post as I used it for the fantastic GerdaSteinerDesigns Blog Hop :)

for the second one I choose alternative Xmas colours and Kraft paper, I submit it to SimonSaysStamp Wednesday Challenge "Get Crafty and use Kraft"


The third one is a simple shaker card, for the main image I used another beautiful GerdaSteinerDesign the "Little Gift Christmas Kitty" if you wish to buy this adorable digital stamp you can get it HERE

I submit this cute Card for SimonSaysStamp Monday Challenge "Anything goes" so wish me luck guys! :)

Good evening people!

This week card is an ATC, my new addiction! I love them so much that I decided to create a page for trade them, what do you think? If you don't know what an ATC, as I didn't until few weeks ago, here is a little explaination:

ATC (Artist Trading Card) are miniature works of art created on 2 ½ X 3 ½ inch or 64 X 89 mm. ATC’s are originals, small editions and, most importantly, self-produced. anybody can produce them. The idea is that you trade them with other people who produce cards. There no limit of the material or media used to create ATC's only the size.

here is the last that I created using recycled materials, the card base is been cut out from a cereal box and the flower is made out of a page from an old french book. A cute button in the centre. The sentiment and the flower stalks are embossed with white embossing powder. The patterned scrap paper is colored with distress ink, I perforated and draw faux stitches all around the edges.

I play along with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, theme: Emboss It.


here another version of the same style ATC

I used quite few Simon Says Stamp exclusive products that I love!

Here are the cards I made,
