Just for you


Hi stampers!
Happy Friday!
First off, I just wanted to let you know that I have 2 cards featured on the Scrapbook & Cards today blog. To take a peek go here,  just a little note, my name is misspelled, apparenly I am not Ilina but Ilona :P
Now onto my card I am sharing today. For this card I used one of the Lili of the valley fairies stamp called "Petal" and I used my Caran'dache Luminance pencils to color it. But first I stamped the image onto Mi-Tientes pastel paper (dark gray) and then colored. The sentiment is from Altenew and  I stamped it on white card stock and then cut it out. The card base and frames are Raspberry card stock from Avery Elle and the candy dots are Melon Mambo from Stampin' Up!

Enjoy!

Hope it's sweet


Hi stampers!

I completely forgot to post yesterday. The day just flew by. My Monday started with traffic due to a bad multiple car crash right at my office. So I took back roads to  my kids' daycare (for 3 miles it took us 40 minutes) and then from there to my office there was no back road as the accident was right at the turn. I just hope no one was seriously injured. Then work was busy, after work I headed off to the gym, and from the gym home, played with the kids, then fed them and they went to bed and I was spent, so I didn't turn on my computer at all. 
But I am here today with a card using the Sprinkles on Top stamp set. I stamped the doughnuts in Watermelon Wonder, Pool Party, Tip Top Taupe and Crushed Curry and punched them using the 3/4" circle punch. I cut the mat from Whisper White card stock and scored 2 parallel lines using my Scoring tool. Then stamped the sentiment, and adhered the doughnuts using dimensionals. I adhered the layer onto Watermelon Wonder card base. And Voila ;)

Tin of Cards


Hi Stampers! 
Happy Friday! Yep, it's finally Friday! This week just flew by! Time flies when you have fun, they say. I don't know if I had a lot of fun, but I know that work was busy and the week just flew by. Just like that, it's gone. 
Today, I have one of the project kits from the catalog to share with you. It's the Tin of cards project kit, along with the coordinating stamp set. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this kit as well as the stamp set. I love the sentiments and the font of the script sentiment.

The kit makes 16 cards and includes 9 dividers for different occasions. You can fit way more than 16 cards in the tin, so you can keep it handy to send cards and they'll be neatly organized, too. 

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I will be back for the weekend or on Monday with more projects for you :)

You are a peach


 Hi stampers!
I have clean and simple card for you today. I really like how it turned out. I used one of the new Host sets. I stamped the image using the MISTI and Old Olive ink pad and Hero arts ombre light to dark peach ink pad. After I stamped the image and sentiment I cut them out, added some gold metallic cord on the back and adhered to a whisper white mat. Then added some of the new metallic sequins and adhered the whole layer onto Whisper White card base and Voila :)

Hope you have a wonderful day and I will be back tomorrow with another creation for you!

Hi all,

I have yet another card on the Chameleon blog featuring Happy Bears set from Lili of the Valley and one color blend, meaning that I used only 1 chameleon marker for coloring the image.

More pictures and details are on the Chameleon Blog.

Chameleon Pens, Art Impressions and Perfect Papercrafting blog hop


Hi all,

You most likely come here from the Chameleon Blog . You probably saw my card on the Chameleon blog.

 but I have a surprise for you, I have another card to share with you today. I used another stamp from Art Impressions along with the Chameleon Pens and the Perfect Layers Mini from Perfect Paper crafting.
I used the single stamp from Art Impressions "The greatest gift" and stamped the image onto Neenah white card stock and colored with my chameleon pens. I used quite few colors (Purple grape, bark, hot cocoa, fawn, bubble gum, royal blue, sky blue, grass green, spring meadow and cool gray).
After I was done coloring I cut the image using Square framelits from Stampin' Up! and created the mat using the Perfect Layers mini. Then I cut out a mat from Avery Elle patterned paper measuring 4" x 5 1/4" and then adhered another strip of patterned paper. Tied some ribbon and attached the image using dimensionals. Then adhered the layer onto green card base. To finish off the card I added some white candy dots.

Happy Birthday


Hi Stampers and happy Friday! 
Hope you all have great weekend ahead of you and great plans. We have nothing planned in stone, but with 3 little ones there is always something going on :) 
Today I have a simple CASE from the new catalog to share with you. I was on the edge of ordering this set and at the end I ordered it. I used the Cherry on top dsp paper stack and the coordinating washi tape. 
The little dougnuts are stamped with Pool Party, Crushed Curry, Watermelon Wonder and Tip Top Taupe and then punched with 3/4" circle punch. 

Hope you enjoy it and I will be back on Monday with another creation. :)

Watercolor Butterfly


Hi Stampers!
As I promised I am back today with another creation. For this card I used the new Watercolor Butterflies set along with the coordinating framelits  and two of the new In Colors Mint Macaroon and Delightful Dijon. I just love the butterflies and the layering options. After I stamped the butterfly, I die cut it and then from velum I cut the smaller butterfly. A stamped the sentiment and dots on Whisper White card stock and then adhered the butterfly using dimensionals. At the end I adhered the panel onto Mint Macaroon card stock.

Best Thoughts


Hi Stampers!
As I promised I am back today with another creation. I love this new hostess set called Best Thoughts. I love how large the flower is! 
I stamped the flower on some watercolor paper and colored it using Cucumber Crush, Pool Party and Delightful Dijon ink pads, then using my paper snips I cut it out . I stamped the Thank you sentiment from the Tin of Cards stamp set and then adhered the flower using dimensionals (to add some more interest) and then adhered some of the new sequins (metallic) and tied some Mint Macaroon lace ribbon on top. Then adhered the whole panel onto Cucumber Crush card base. And voila quick (except the watercoloring part) and easy card.

More vintage roses


Hi stampers!
Happy Monday! 
I am so sorry I have been quite for the past week or so. Work was really busy and stressful so I didn't really have the energy to keep up with my blog, but I am back now. Few weeks ago I posted similar cards and I said that I have more created that were "upgraded". I added some wink of stella and sequins to the cards to add more interest. As well I did bunch of different sentiments for different occasions. 

Enjoy and I will be back tomorrow with more creations :)
