Hugs and kisses - birthday card for a little girl


Here's a cute fairy, bringing hugs and kisses to little girls for their birthdays...:)

For this card I used a bit of every card making technique: the  fairy is stamped and then colored with Copic markers, the little butterflies come from a paper napkin, the wording is embossed using one of Sizzix's embossing folders and then distressed with chalk.

Card size: A5

Shoes or perfumes?...the eternal dilema


what would you buy or perfumes? ...or maybe both...:))
To help you decide, have a look at these cards. Which do you like best?

The embellishments are cut from paper napkins transferred on freezer paper and some washi tape for the first card.

Aristocats like card / Cu gandul la Aristocats


This card came to life from some leftover embellishments from previous projects and one of the pre-cut characters from Andrea Jayne's "Pampered pets" paper collection.

The burgundy heart and the frame are done with Sizzix die cuts. To create a very soft pastel background, chalks were the best choice (and of course this is a quick way to create custom backgrounds...).

Card size:10x15 cm

Pansy vintage card and paper pralines / Panseluta si praline de hartie


Today's post is about a very special birthday gift I made for a very special lady :)....a card and a box with two miniature paper pralines.
For the card, I used one of the newest floral die cut sets from Sizzix: Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 12PK - Flower, Pansy/Violet

Besides the pansy and the two violets, I made two small carnations from some leftover pralines paper cups.
Here's the vintage shabby chic box with the pralines (the first I ever made...:)  )

To create the shabby chic look of the box, I used rice paper and acrylic paints.

This project is one of my favorites...I loved making it!
I hope you like it too! :)
