Thinking of you (cQc #99)

Last night I was surfing on the internet in the search for a challenge to take part in. And I found the ColorQ challenge #99. Aren't those colors wonderful? I loved the combination when I saw it.
Now here is my take on this color combo:

In case you are wondering, the sentiment stamp is from Layers Of Color Art Stamps. The design paper is from Rico Design and the cardboard is from a local craft store.
I like the fact that I stamped twice the same sentiment. What do you think?

Have a wonderful day!
Hugs!

Something different - A Frame

As I was telling you in the yesterday's post, I made a frame for someone to give as a gift. The only special request was to contain the poem that he wrote. I began with painting the frame in black, than I sand it a little bit at the edges and at the end I varnished it. The sanding gives it a little bit of a vintage look. For the background I chose a piece of paper from The Stack 6 by DCWV. I love the little bird on this paper!
On the left bottom corner of the frame I made a branch from wire and I dressed it in  satin ribbon.
Besides the flowers, I also attached a little tag wrote by hand.
On the tracing paper I printed out the poem, but I promised I won't publish it so I had to erase the words from the picture.
Curious of how the complete frame looks like? Well here it is:
 I like very much how it turned out.

Yesterday, as I was surfing on the internet I found out that the challenge hosted by Scrapper in Romania this month has the theme "White-Black and a little bit of turquoise". I don't have so much white in my project but I have a lot of turquoise ... so I am guessing it's ok to take part at the challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!
Hugs!

CASE Study Challenge #53

It's time for CASE Study Challenge number 53 ... actually it's almost closing so I am hurrying up to finish this post. Today I was in a crafty mood and I planned to play along with this challenge. For this week we had to choose and CASE one of Chupa's wonderful cards. And I chose this one:
Wonderful card, don't you think? If you want to find out more about it you can find it here.
Now here is my try:
For the stamp I used the free image that The Graphics Fairy posted here.
I didn't have time to make a banner because it's almost midnight here and I have to go to sleep.
Tomorrow is another day...

Thanks for stepping by!

Just a card

Good morning to you all! How are you today? 
I'm preparing to go to work so I thought I will share a card with you before that.
This card was made last week along with the other 2 presented before. I used a digi flower stamp from The Stamping Boutique. I colored it with Farber Castell watercolor penciles and for this one I used the water. I kind of like how it turned out. I think I will begin to use the penciles more often. I find it easier than with the markers.
Below you have a complete view of the card. 
Last night I was in a very creative mood and I made a frame for someone to give as a gift. So stay tuned because I will post about that frame tomorrow ;).

Hugs!

Flowers all around

Today is a happy day! It's Friday! We are planning to go tomorrow to an aqua park. I am so enthusiastic about that! It's been a while since I've last went to an aqua park. Unfortunately I don't know how to swim, but I don't think that this will be a problem. I will enjoy the time and try to relax as much as I can after a hard week at work.
I decided to share with you today a card that I made last Saturday. It's a very joyful card. It uses the flower cart stamp from The Stamping Boutique.

I colored the stamp with Farber Castell water penciles but I didn't use water on this one. 


 Here you have a full picture of the card.

I wish you all a wonderful relaxing week-end!
Hugs!

Let's welcome Iulia

I know it is long time since I've posted something, but I didn't find the time.


The card I will show you was made to celebrate the birth of my little cousin Iulia (I know, sounds weird, but she's my cousin). For this card I used a very nice digital stamp called "spring ducks" from Prairie Fairy. I love this joyful stamp! I find it so cute.

I colored the stamp with Farber Castell penciles. I love them. It's so easy to use them! 
Here you have a complete picture of the card. Iulia's mother loved it!

I also wanna show you some pictures of the sweet little angel. 

Have a wonderful day!
