Tutorial Thursday

Hello Maria Therese here today and I have a very easy tutorial for you today that will be nice for your Christmas projects..

I want to show you how to make beautiful shabby snow for your Christmas/Winter projects

This is what you need:

Some white paint 
Plastic Foil 
and what ever you want to make snowy effects on..

You will crunch the plastic foil in a little ball , dip it in the paint with a easy hand so you don't get too much at your plastic foil at a time , better to go back and dab on more than to end up with a solid white where you place the paint..

Here I have started to dab it along the edge of my paper bag , 
be sure to have something under the bag so you don't ruin your table..

My bag after it's done. Don't be in a hurry make sure it's all dry before you start playing and adding your stuff on.. 

And this is how it turned out after I decorated:

Hope you got a nice idea on some snowy projects for the winter..
And I would love if you came over to my blog and popped me a link if you have created anything with this tutorial so I can come visit your blog ♥

Big hugs from Maria Therese

Trick or Treat

Good morning and good weekend. Shanna here today to share with you a fun card I created using the Stamp Kit #3

Scrap Your Stash is the theme for today too. So I decided to use some old Halloween stuff I had in a bin. 

I colored Henry up with my copics and paired him with some fun Halloween papers. 

I also embellished the card with some stickers, ribbon, and a fun brad. 

This is such a fun stamp kit so make sure you pre-order yours for the next time around.

Color me happy
Hello everyone it Erika here again with another card for you. Today is coloring time and I have used an image of a super cute giraffe that I just couldn't keep myself from falling in love with. I think this little guy is adorable.

This is the card I have done for today:

This is a pretty simple card without a lot of detail, but I made it this way since I wanted all the focus to be on the colored image. As usual I used my Copic Markers to color this image and I used some yellows tones, some earth tones and also some gray and teal. Since this image is very small and detailed it is hard to do proper blending with the markers so what I do in situations like this is to use only two colors. First I color with the lighter shade and then carefully dab the darker colors where needed and then I go over the whole thing again with the lighter one to blend. For small spaces you don't need anything else than this and it will still look good.

I cut out my image using a new die set from Spellbinders which also can cut tiny little holes. I love this stitched effect. The sentiment is one that I reach for a lot. I think it's very versatile and easy to use.

As a finishing touch I added some shimmer with my Wink of Stella pen to the clothes.

Here is a closeup of the card:

So that was all for me today, I hope you liked my card and if you are interested in any of the products I used, take a look at the links below.

Good Morning all! It’s Lisa here for today’s ‘Make A Card Monday’ .


Here is my card using the cutest little Scarecrow Henry from the Fall Secret Stamp Kit:


It’s a very CAS card for me as I have been unwell and have been unable to spend long periods of time crafting, but I have been spending plenty of time colouring!
