Summer vibes

Today, I'm sharing a shaker card full of happy Summer vibes. Products: Pengu-tastic holiday, Paradise birds, Underwater wonders, Sunkissed memories, Giraffe-ic friends, Summer bliss die set and Nested scalloped frames die set Distress oxides: Squeezed lemonade, Scattered Straw, Tea-dye, Vintage Photo, Ground Espresso, Salvaged Patina and Salty ocean To create this beach scene, I started by stamping the palm tree on my panel, using the Pengu-tastic holiday stamp set and once more on masking paper. On white cardstock, I also stamped all the other images, using additional stamp sets, including the Giraffe-ic friends, Underwater wonders and Paradise birds. I colored the images with Copic markers and added a few highlights in the eyes with a white gel pen. I then used the Pengu-tastic, Giraffe-ic friends, Underwater wonders and Paradise birds coordinating dies to die cut the images. Next, I fussy cut the palm tree mask and adhered it onto the image. I took a long strip of white cardstoc

Treat yourself on your special day

I made this card for my MIL who celebrates her birthday today. She lives in the countryside, grows her own vegetables and has this amazing backyard with 2 donkeys that she loves, gooses, ducks, bunnies, etc. So I hope she'll like the card. In any case, I had a great time making it and I just love how it turned out and how dimensional it is.

Christmas in July

@alexsyberiadesigns and the design team and guests are celebrating Christmas in July. The whole collection is on sale on the Alex Syberia Designs store and the team is sharing some inspiration. Enjoy! Products: Falala friends, Falala stand-alone sentiment die, Christmas sentiments, Festive poinsettia and Nested scalloped frames die set Distress oxide: Tumbled glass and Wilted violet   To create this card, I cut a panel slightly bigger than the largest rectangle die from the Nested scalloped frames die set and I stamped the beautiful Festive Poinsettia at the top of my panel. I also stamped it on masking paper, fussy cut the image and adhered it on my panel. I then blended Distress oxides Tumbled glass on the entire panel and Wilted violet on the edges. Next, I splattered metallic watercolor, Empress from Hydracolor and let it to dry. In the meantime, I stamped the cute critters, music notes and hats from the Falala friends set and colored them with Copic markers. I then used the coordi

Blow out the candles

I am super excited about today's card showcasing a new @pearblossompress light, the Candle light. This light is just pure genius and will create an amazing surprise for any birthday girl or boy receiving such a card. As usual, you can light up the card by pressing on the switch, but to turn it off, you have to blow out the candle... Yes, you read this correctly! How cool is that?! For this project, I used some cool sets from @yournextstamp who sadly retired and @mamaelephant. Products: Candle light and World's best foam tape (Pear Blossom Press) Waddles to the rescue, Waddles Food truck fun and Waddles Fortune teller (Your Next Stamp) Hey neighbor (Mama Elephant) Make a wish (The Greetery) Take action sentiments (Spellbinders) Distress oxides: Speckled egg and Iced spruce   #yns #yournextstamp #mamaelephant #pearblossompress #cardmaking #handmadecards #cardmakingofinstagram #onelayercard #interactivecard #lightupcard #lightupcards

I then colored all the images with Copic markers. I used grey and black Copic liners to add details to the ladybug and mouse. I then used the Cindy Lou's poppies, Cheerful Panda Moments and Sweet friend coordinating dies to die cut the images. Next, I die cut the background panel from white cardstock with the larger rectangle from the Nested scalloped frames die set and lightly blended some Distress oxide Old paper through the Seaside swirls stencil. I then adhered the backgr
