Baby Boy Card with Neat and Tangled

Hi Everyone,

It feels like I have not posted anything new here for ages! Oh wait, it probably has been ages :o) Which is why, I am really delighted to be back here today & share a baby boy card with you! By the way, if you're looking for more regular crafty updates from me (regular-ish!), do check out my Instagram account - I am definitely there more often than I am here recently...

The layout/design of the card has been inspired by the current Little Tangles challenge, and the rest of it just somehow came together bit by bit... I knew the stamp set I wanted to use, I had the rough idea of the colours I wanted to play with, and then I came across a little piece of tulle on my desk... :0) I am also not one for making very busy background panels recently, but somehow this "home-made patterned paper" [THANK YOU, MISTI!] made of the sentiments came to life. And you know what? I like it! 

I embellished the card with some Wink of Stella & Glossy Accents sparkle. I was also going to add sequins, but in the end decided not to. I hope you like the result!





I am entering the card into the following challenges:
Little Tangles - Sketch
Passion for ProMarkers - Anything Goes

Have a great day,

Mirella

For the love of colour with Mudra Craft Stamps

Hi Everyone,

I have another post with a few cards I designed for Mudra Craft Stamps this month - go check them out! This time, it's all about colour - we have some ink blending, some sequin shakers, and a bit of watercolouring with ZIGs!

A little sneak peek:




Have a great day,

Fall card with The Ton Stamps

Hi Everyone,

Miss me much? :o) I am so terribly sorry for slacking with my card-making recently - the truth is, I am not slacking as much in the craft room, as I am on social media. Don't get me wrong, I really have not had much time for crafting recently, but in the last few weeks if the choice was between posting online or making, I chose making... Hopefully I'll manage to show some of the projects on my Instagram, and maybe even here, in the nearest future. 

There are three main reasons for my recent absence - holidays, visitors, and... another baby on the way! Yes, those of you who follow me on Instagram already know - we are expecting another baby girl in late January! We're over the moon, and can't wait to meet our new family member, but at the same time I know my crafting will suffer for a while again... It will be all worth it, though! :o)

Enough rambling, though, let's talk crafty! 

I was lucky enough to win a few stamp sets over the summer, and I decided it's time to start playing with these. My pile of Never Before Used Stamps (NBUS) is growing, and there are so many lovely new sets coming out all the time... I need to try catching up ;o)

Today's card was heavily inspired by the current season (autumn) itself, but also by the current challenge happening over at The Ton Stamps - the mood board is so lovely that I got inspired right away!

I hope you like what I created, I am really pretty pleased with it:





I am entering the card into the following challenges:


I had so much fun playing with the (new to me) ZIG clean color real brush markers, I am also really happy with the colours of the background (+ a bonus - I used scraps for it!), and with all the golden detailing - the shiny mirror card for the matting, the golden splatters on the background & the gold heat embossing go really well together, and definitely compliments the fall colours, I think. 

The flowers were fussy cut and slightly popped with some double sided foam tape for additional interest. There's also a little bit of Wink of Stella on the flowers, but that's not very visible in the photos, I'm afraid. 

I sincerely hope I will be back here soon, with more creations!
Until then - have a great week.

Spotlight Technique using Mudra stencils and stamps

Hi Everyone,

I have been missing in action for a bit longer than planned, and I'm afraid that it will still be quiet here for another week or two, but I'll be back, I promise ;o)

Today I'm just sharing a quick post to advise you that it's my turn over at Mudra Craft Stamps again, and this month we're featuring the Spotlight Technique --> again, it's a new one for me, but I had a lot of fun exploring the different available options. 

For those of you who missed it, here is a card I made at the beginning of the month, showcasing the spotlight with a die-cut sentiment. 

This time, I had fun with inks and stencils! A small sneak peek (do note that I have more cards than these two over at Mudra's blog):




I will be back soon, more regularly!

Stencil extravaganza with Mudra

Good morning Everyone,

Here's a little peek at my latest creations for Mudra - this time, it's all about their stencils. I hope you pop by and say hello - this is my last post for them for this half of the year. As you know, I'm taking a break in July, but don't worry - I'll be back in August! :o)






Have a great summer,

Mirella

Triple Time Stamping with Mudra Craft Stamps

Hi Everyone,

I'm sorry I have been quiet for a while now - I am afraid I needed a bit of a break from social media. I didn't take a complete break from crafting, but I didn't craft an awful lot either. I am going to be away for the whole month of July, so it'll be another small hiatus here & in the craftroom, but I promise I'll be back (and hopefully so will my mojo!) in August!

Pop over to the Mudra blog to see a Triple Time Stamping tutorial I prepared, and a few cards I made with their recently released  cute stamp sets. 

Here's a little peek:




Have a great day,

M.

You make my life so sweet

Hi Everyone,

Have you had a good weekend? I sure did! I only hope that the nicer higher temperatures will be back, but as long as it stays sunny - I won't complain much!

Today I am sharing a CAS card with you - YES, I managed to pull off another CAS! I felt like I needed to add more and more to this design, but I decided to leave it as is, and I am glad I did! The beauty of these designs is that they're relatively quick to make. The kind of drawback is that you need to be really neat about all the elements you include, as there isn't much space for hiding errors!

I decided to make the design a bit playful by adhering the frame at an angle - I think it's fun! And aren't the images by Love Cynthia absolutely adorable?!



I believe that every girly card needs to have some sparkle and shimmer, hence the frame has been cut out of glitter paper, and the image is covered with Wink of Stella & some Glossy Accents here ant there:


I am entering the card into the following challenges:
