Easter 2018 Card

Hello Bloggers,

an Easter card today. I used one of my favourite dies ever - the Santoro Gorjuss GOR 503003. I love the girls that it makes. :)

The card's background is embossed with the ancient Marianne Design Designables Stencil Madelief DS0910. I sprayed some gold on it and applied some different gold onto the embossed flowers with a gel pen.

I know, in the photo, the gold on the girl's dress looks a bit... well.. not as it looks in real life, for sure. In fact, in reality, it is much softer and  evener, but I did not manage to find a better light position for the photo. The reason being - the eggs! The Easter eggs on the left are mirri-board and, boy, they are shiny! :)

Well, anyways. Happy upcoming Easter, everyone!

Hello Bloggers,

A Valentine card today, obviously :)

I have this ancient Cheery Lynn Designs Doily die, that I don't use so very often for a shameful reason - I am too lazy to fiddle with it. :-/

However, when I get enough courage and run it through the machine... like ... 10 times propping all kinds of shims at different spots, the result is gorgeous. It's a beautiful delicate doily with hearts, so appropriate for today's occasion. 
I added some gems and a bit of glitter on the smaller hearts, but not too much altogether. Some boys don't like cards addressed to them too shiny :)
 All the elements are layered on foam dots, creating the airy lacy feel and look.

Christmas Card with Angel

Hello Bloggers,

Merry Christmas, everyone!!!🎄🎅⛄🌟

Suddenly, I had some free time today and decided to post a card :) So.

I bought these Nellie's Choice Angel dies for this season, and I absolutely love them! This particular one is #HSDJ012. They offer three different designs altogether, all adorable!
The tiny drops on the flowers are the Panduro Ice Pearls Laquer. It's so old, they don't even sell it anymore, but my pot is still very usable and I like this stuff on winter cards. :)
The rosette is made of two Joy!Crafts 6002/0314 Noor Stencil "Border" die cuts.

Mirri Board Bauble Christmas Card

Hello Bloggers,

a Christmas card today. Yet again :)

The focal point and the inspiration for the whole design is the Spellbinders Nestabilities 2011 Heirloom Ornament S4-334 and the Spellbinders Card Creator Borderabilities Scalloped Borders 2 - S5202. Both sets are very old dies, but somehow it's only now that it clicked in my head to combine them in this way :)

The paper pad I used here had a lot of turquoise patterns, thus the color of the mirri board. It shines happily through the die-cut swirls. :)
I love the way Spellbinders Borderabilities offer a punching option, i.e. without the cutting edge. It can be used for so many purposes!
  I added some liquid pearls on the bauble, as well.
