Holly's Purrfect Christmas


This will be my last post for this year.... how quickly days pass by. Time to say goodbye to 2019 and welcome 2020!!!
So here is another card made as DT inspiration for Conie Fong using her digi - 'Holly's Purrfect Christmas'

As usual, I colored with copic markers and shaded with Polychromos pencils. I love this method since I can create fine shading details. 

I layered the image with green cardstock and added to a 6" x 6" top fold panel. I added dies cuts using Fantasy dies and a handmade poinsettia flower. I added some sparkle dust on the flower. A Christmas card cannot be complete without a little sparkle. 

Hope you liked my card. Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New year.

Till we meet next year - Happy crafting!

DT Post for Conie Fong

Merry Christmas to all!
All of you would be making cards for Christmas and here I am with my DT inspiration card for Conie Fong using her digital image 'Snowy with Poinsettia'. I colored the image with Copic markers and gave shading with Polychromos color pencils. I added a few spots with a white gel pen to give an effect of snow falling.

I layered an A4 size card with pattern paper and decorated it with die cuts using Fantasy border dies and fussy cut elements from Mintay Paper collection - Home for Christmas'. I added a few snowflakes die cuts also. 

Some close up shots for you. I inked lightly and added glitter on the snowflakes.

Hope you liked my card. Till next time - Happy Crafting!!

Christmas Shaker Ornament

Hello friend,

I recently made a shaker Christmas ornament using star-shaped dies.

I cut several frames of the star die and stuck them to get the depth. I like to use cardstock rather than foam adhesive since they are sticky and the shaker elements tend to get stuck to the foam adhesive. I added the acetate sheet and die cut a pattern paper and added pattern paper at the back too. I added the shaker elements and sealed it.

I fussy cut a few elements from Mintay papers 'Home for Christmas' paper pack. and decorated with a golden ribbon and attached a thread for hanging.

Hope you liked my project. Thank you for stopping by. Till next time - Happy Crafting!

DT post for Conie Fong

Hi there,

Today I am sharing a card I made using Conie Fong's image 'Floral Garden', as my DT post

I printed the image on grayscale since I wanted to do no-line coloring. I colored each flower and leaf with copic marker using the lightest shade. I then worked on with Faber Castell Polychromos.

This picture was taken from my mobile, so the colors are not sharp. I layered the image with red cardstock and added it to the cardbase. I added a few clear drops and crystal drops. I stamped and embossed the sentiment on vellum and added it to the card.

Hope you liked my card. You can find the digital image I used here:

Christmas Blessing - Conie Fong DT post


At last I started my christmas cards. Here is my first one using Conie Fong digi stamp - 'Christmas Blessings'

I colored the image with Copic markers and highlighted with Polychromos pencils.

I layered the image onto a red cardstock. I die cut few snowflakes using the dies from Crafters Companion and added Sparkling dust from DressMy Craft.

 I layered a white card base with pattern papers from Mintay Paper pack - 'Sweetest Christmas'. To finish I added a golden ribbon and a bow. 

Hope you liked my card. You can find the digi image here

Bob n Betty DT post featuring 'Caffe Romaza'


Today I am sharing an explosion box made using the paper pack - 'Caffe Romaza'

The box measures 4" x 4 ". It is a single layered explosion box. Only two flaps open and the other two are joined to create a corner.

I fussy images from the paper pack and created a cafe scene inside. I used acetate sheet to support these fussy cut images.

I added a pocket on one flap and flip page on the other flap.

I decorated the cover with handmade flowers and fussy cut elements.

Here is a video of the Explosion Box :

Hope you liked my project. Till next time .... Happy Crafting!

I diecut two pieces of white cardstock with the Altenew Mid Century Frame die, and stuck them to get a sturdier and dimensional effect.
I smooshed some distress ink on white cardstock to create a background and layered it with pink cardstock and stuck them on the card base. I arranged the flowers and leaves on the frame die and finished off with few clear drops and splatter of black paint.
