Peek A Boo

Hi there, everyone! I'm stopping by today to share with you another card of mine featuring a very cute and recently released Hoppiness Clear Stamp Set by super talented Gerda Steiner Designs. And here is what I came up with this time:

Yes, this stamp set is perfect for making newborn baby cards. It includes a little bunny that can be used as a newborn baby boy or just add a self drawn bow and you'll get a girl 😊

I started off by creating ink blended background. First I colored the sky, then the bushes, and once I put them together, I spritzed some water on the panel to get these spots. Once this was done, I stamped bunnies and a butterfly onto a piece of paper and colored them with my Copics. After fussy cutting the images, I put all the elements together and stamped the sentiment. To finish off the card I added a couple of sequins on the front bush . 
And that's how this project was created πŸ˜ƒ

And for those who was patient enough to read through the first part of my post, I have a bonus shaker tag to share with you:

Hoppiness Stamp Set turned out to be a perfect one for creating tags, especially the ones that have a shaker element. Any bunny from this set would perfectly fit into the circle cut and you can make a tag for whatever occasion you like: Valentine's day, birthday, a thank you note, etc. Like I was saying, the range of use of this stamp set is extensive πŸ˜‰

Well, I guess that's all for today 😊
Thanks for stopping by! See you next time!

Somebunny Like You

Hello everyone! Hope you're doing well. Today I would like to reveal some great news I've been waiting to share with you for quite some time now. I'm really happy to announce that I'll be once again guest designing for my all time favorite Gerda Steiner Designs πŸ’ƒ

For the next couple of weeks I'll be sharing with you some projects of mine featuring the recently released Hoppiness Clear Stamp Set which includes lots of super cute bunnies that are perfect for any project. Let's start with the first one. Of course, no one can resist putting these little cuties on love themed cards and today's card isn't an exception. 

Here is what I came up for my Valentine this year:

I started off by creating ink blended background. First I colored the sky, then grass, and once I put them together, I spritzed some water on the panel to create a super-duper effect that I like a lot. Once this was done, I stamped bunnies, a fence, and a butterfly onto a piece of paper and colored them with my Copics. After fussy cutting the images, I put all the elements together and stamped the sentiment. I added a couple of sequins to finish off the card. And that's how this project was created πŸ˜ƒ

Well, I though that I should add some other present next to the card and decided to make a bookmark with the help of the same stamp set. And now, without further ado, here is my bookmark to hopefully give you some inspiration:

Like I was saying, the range of use of this stamp set is extensive and I will try to show at least some of themπŸ˜ƒ

I hope you liked my little inspiration. Thanks for stopping by! See you next time!

Baby Album

Hello, crafty friends! Can you believe that it's already February? Yes, just a couple more months and we will be enjoying warm and sunny weather πŸ™Œ Today, I would like to share with you a recent creation of mine that took a lot of time to make - a baby album for my son. To tell you the truth, this a typical case of the cobbler's children having no shoes πŸ™ˆ I make albums for everyone except for my family. So this time I've decided to change things a little bit πŸ˜‰ And now, without further ado, here is what I came up with:

Here is the picture of the very first page which was made in this album. Sweet Dreams collection by Scrapberry's made this album look so gentle and actually sweet:

As you might have noticed, the album is made of paper only, but next time I intend to use some fabric as well. So stay tuned! 😁

Hope you've enjoyed today's creation! Have a nice day and thanks for stopping by!

New Beginnings

Hello, crafty friends! Welcome to my very first post in 2017! It's been really a while since my last post here. Well, to tell you the truth, I've been wondering for quite some time now if I should really keep writing my blog. A couple of weeks ago I decided to stop all this and just stick to my Instagram page, but still made up my mind to come back here from time to time and show you what I've been up to. Today I would like to share with you one of my New Year resolutions - baby albums. Yep, I've decided to fully dedicate myself to album making ... at least for this month. We have 8! babies coming this year among our family and friends, so it's high time to start making presents for them:

Here is a close up:

Hope you've enjoyed today's creation! Have a nice day and thanks for stopping by!

Holiday Card Series 2016 (Part 3)

Hello, crafty friends! I'm topping by today to share the latest creation of mine that features a couple of my favorite stamp sets by Gerda Steiner Designs and "Neat & Tangled". I've recently had a chance to visit a workshop in Slovenia hosted by super talented Dorota Kopec. This was definitely a great experience where we've learnt a couple of techniques used by Dorota in her works. So today's vintage card with non-traditional Christmas colors was created based on what we were shown at the workshop:

Something a little bit different but still super cute and fun:) What do you this of this? 

Hope you've enjoyed today's card! Have a nice day and thanks for stopping by!
