November Mood Board - It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Hello everybody,

It's Donna here, and I'm so excited to be sharing a card that I made using the November mood board. I love using mood boards, because sometimes it's hard to know where to start, and the mood board gives me direction and inspiration. We'd love to see what others do with the mood board, so don't forget to share and tag us if you play along. All the links are at the bottom of this post!

So, here is my card...

I stamped the beautiful images from the "Grace's Little Note" stamp set, and heat embossed them with gold glitter embossing powder on a piece of watercolour paper. I then watercolored the flowers using three layers of red and pink, and coloured between the flowers with raw sienna. 
I cut out a window from a piece of off white card, and, using two circle dies, I cut a thin frame for the hole from gold glitter paper. I used the same glitter paper to make the string and top of the bauble, but I just cut these freehand. (That's my version of living life on the edge!)
I stamped the word Celebrate, from the same stamp set as the flowers, and gold embossed this too, In order to match the shape of the design, I stretched the stamp into a curve.
The top panel is popped up with foam tape to give the card a bit of dimension. 
Have you seen the mood board that I used as inspiration?
Here's a look at it. You can see that I was inspired by the lovely colour palette, and the Christmas baubles. 

So I look forward to seeing more creations using this lovely mood board!
Until next time, may your days be full of sparkle!

Sweet Birthday

Hello everyone! First of all, wishing you all a very happy new year! It's Berina here today, sharing a beautiful and sweet card using the tic tac toe board for January!

I used the diagonal from the board - Die Cut, Embossing and Flowers. I decided to use the Splendid Roses for the flowers. I stamped the floral image using Memento black ink and colored the flowers with Copic markers. I used V09, V17, V15 and V12 for the flowers and G99, YG67, YG63, YG61 and YG03 for the leaves. I loved coloring these flowers. I cut the panel into 4" x 5 1/4". For the sentiment, I decided to go with the "Wishing you a sweet birthday" from the same stamp set. I gold embossed the sentiment and die cut it with a small oval. I colored the edges of the die cut with V15. I took a top folding A2 cardbase and colored the edges of the front with V15. I adhered the image panel on to the card base with glue and attached the sentiment panel with foam tape. I love how this card has turned ou…

Birthday Tea Party

Hello everyone! It's Berina here today! I'm here to inspire you to create something with our beautiful Mood board for December. I love the beautiful festive colors.

I've been wanting to use the Vintage Tea Cups stamp set the moment I got it I love the tea cup stamp. As soon as I saw this moodboard, I was fixated on using that stamp set.

I stamped the border image from the stamp set using Memento London Fog on the top left and lower right. I stamped the kettle and the cup with the same ink. I used Copic markers to color the images. I used BG15, BG13, BG11 and BG000 for the teal colored part and C7, C3, C1 and 0 for the remaining. I decided to add some grounding for the kettle and cup with the grey color. I stamped the sentiment using Hero Arts black ink.
