Snowflakes are Kisses from Heaven

Brrr, winter…Even though I’m living in California I need my warmer temperatures back. The only good thing about winter is snow (some might disagree with me), especially when you didn’t have snow for 3 years now. Good that So Suzy has such cute winter sentiments like this one: “Snowflakes are kisses from heaven.” *squeeee* I just recently made a trip to IKEA (needed some craft furniture πŸ˜› ) and I also brought some napkins home. Because these had snowflakes on them I thought that they would fit really good to the sentiment, so I created a mixed media style card …

Throw on a Crown – Celebrating Snarkfest

throw on a crown

New yhear, new challenges. Welcome to the Can You Case It challenge #144 using the colors Aqua and Watermelon. Because we are currently celebrating Snarkfest in the Snarky Stampers Facebook group (feel free to join πŸ˜‰ ), I wanted to create a silly card. The colors are perfect for my new gummy bear stamp set, so I went with three of them and I chose the “Throw on a crown” stamp from So Suzy Stamps. I started by stamping the three bears onto vellum, fuzzy cutting them and coloring them with Copics from the back. That gave them a more …

sparkly thank you

Hi and welcome to a new year full of amazing adventures! Let’s start with a new video showing you how I created this sparkly Thank You card using Nuvo Glimmer Paste and some really neat dies. I’m starting to try products in different ways, that’s why I’m using the Glimmer Paste as a paint, versus a modelling paste. I think it turned out really nice πŸ˜› You might have seen that I used gloves for this technique. In general you don’t need to worry about getting the paste off of your hands. I just used gloves to keep the glimmer …

Wow, it’s already Winter. Time for cute Christmas decoration, Peppermint Lattes, delicious chocolate and some snow (well, not for me). And to celebrate the upcoming cozy season I’m joining the Coffee Lover Winter Blog Hop with this fun Christmas card. I started by die-cutting a bunch of pieces from white card stock and the background from this amazing paper pack from Carta Bella. I just love the plaid paper in there! Red and gold always look gorgeous together, so I used the Nuvo Glimmer Paste in Golden Crystal for the snowflake pattern. The Nuvo paste dries rather quickly, maybe 30 …

Video: So Much Sparkle for Santa and his Helper

sparkle for santa

Hello and welcome to a new card for Kat Scrappiness, using a lot of sparkle and a new to me stamp brand, Nordic Stamps. Santa and his reindeer are just so adorable that they needed a lot of sparkly goodness around them. To create all this sparkle for Santa and his little helper, I used the new Nuvo Glimmer Paste and Embossing Powder. I just love both of them, for several reasons. First, the glitter is not too much. It’s sparkly, but not blinding. Second, the glitter is containable. You don’t have a huge mess on your craft table afterwards, …
