Winter flowers

Now I know there aren't exactly a lot of flowers blooming outside in the winter but I'm bringing you some lovely winter themed flowers anyways!  I am totally in love with the newest mood board!  Take a look.


Isn't it gorgeous??  One of these years I'm going to decorate my Christmas tree in all blue and silver. It'll have to wait until the kids move out though!  Our tree is currently a hodge podge of assorted ornaments and they each have their own collection I add to every year.  They get to take them with when they move out!

Let me get back to my project and go ahead and share it with you!


When I saw all those luscious shades of blue I knew I just had to color up some flowers!  This flower is from the Time to Blossom set.  This is most definitely one of my absolutely favorite sets from Kennedy Grace Creations.  I colored the flowers with Copic markers using BG000, BG01, BG05 and a touch of BG07.  I colored the leaves using T1, T3 and T5.  Aren't they lovely?

To create the background I started with a piece of watercolor paper.  I used a snowflake stencil and distress inks to sponge two different sizes of snowflakes.  I then splattered a little water mixed with Pearl ex on the snowflakes and dabbed it up with a paper towel.  Then I thinned down silver paint and splattered that all over the background as well.

After it was all dry I heat embossed the sentiment in silver.  I cut out the watercolor paper using a stitched die and adhered it to the plaid paper.  I love this paper from Doodlebug!  This was all then layered onto a blue card base.  I added sequins from the Lemon Sorbet mix.  As a final touch I colored over the flowers with the clear Spectrum Noir sparkle marker.  Check out all that shimmer in the close up!


I can't help myself so I have one more picture for you!




I hope you find some inspiration and will play along with the mood board.  We would love to see your work!  See all our links at the bottom of this post.

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.
