Everything is cooler with you

Hi Everyone,

Can you believe it's December already? I can't, eek! On one hand, I'm very excited, on the other... very unprepared... But hey, we'll have to go with the flow and make things work ;o)

We had a little hospital in the house over the last week and a bit (even the cat got sick!), each of us suffering from something different, but I am happy to report that we're all on the mend, and almost healthy. Woohoo! This means a little bit more time & strength for crafting, too! 

Today I am sharing with you a rather simple (but cute!) card I made with the "Cooler with you" card kit I won a while ago from MFT - loving the kit and I am sooooo happy that I won it. And to think that I wasn't too mad on the stampset when I first saw it - but how cute are these snowmen?!


I had a few challenges with colouring the images - my new batch of Crafter's Companion Neenah seems to be of a really poor quality & gives me headaches with loads of bleeding (gotta get the real deal from US soon, I guess...)... Either way, I went with it, helped myself with the white gel pen here and there (even doodled some patterns on the clothes), stuck with the images & the card concept till the end, and here it is --> I am actually quite happy with the end result :o)





I am entering the card into the following challenges:
I Love Promarkers - Snowmen
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
SSS Work it Wednesday - Use Dies

Have a great week,

Mirella

CAS card with Neat and Tangled

Hi Everyone,

To those of you who are celebrating today - Happy Thanksgiving! I have to admit, with all the Christmas preparation craze - fair play to all of you who also need to prepare for Turkey Day - so much work! 

Today I am sharing with you a CAS card I created for the Little Tangles challenge. You know that I'm not really a CAS gal, and I find those very clean designs rather challenging, but I tried my best! I embossed the background with a die (and used the clever trick I learned from Jennifer McGuire, where you ink up your die before embossing, and you get a nice thin coloured line embedded into the cardstock), and then created a little glittery scene for Mr and Mrs Penguin, so that they can enjoy their date night with all the sparkle! I also glammed them up a bit with some little bows covered in Glossy Accents - I am not sure why I have stopped using my Glossy Accents for a while - the gloss is simply so fab! And, of course, there is also some Wink of Stella on top of it all - it might be CAS, but at least let me keep my sparkle! ;o)


I had no sentiment from Neat and Tangled that would be small enough for this scene, hence I used "Winter Wonderland" from my stash - it's a set that was a freebie with a crafty magazine some years ago, came really handy now!

I hope you like my CAS attempt. I swear this card is square - I am not sure why it's coming out so wonky in the photos :o(




I love how the reverse side of the front panel looks - I think this side could just as easily be used as the front! 


I am entering the card into the following challenges:
Little Tangles - CAS
SSS Wednesday Challenge - Christmas to die for
I love ProMarkers - No patterned paper
Seven Hills Crafts - Inspired by a Christmas song (Winter Wonderland)

Have a great day, and check out my YouTube channel later today if you like haul videos! :o)
