Merry and Bright Christmas

Hello everyone! I'm here today with a card starring Merry Sentiments stamp and it's coordinating dies. I love those Christmas light bulbs, they are so pretty as you stamp every layers.

I start with a piece of 4.25"x5.5" white cardstock, and stamped all the light bulbs on the edges. I think it will be more festive with a colorful light bulbs on your Christmas tree. I started with the lighter colors and layer them with the darker ones after. Have I mentioned the heart wire inside the bulbs? Oh, it is so super cute. I did the same thing for the bulb's base, start with a lighter grey and stamped the detail with a darker one. After I'm happy with my bulb border, I die cuts about eight pieces bulb's coordinating dies to mask some of them before I stamp the leaves from Holiday Style stamp. 
As for my sentiment I use silver embossing powder on a black cardstock and layer it on top a piecec of vellum. It makes the sentiment stand out from the background. Last but not least, I cut a piece of 4.5"x5.75" silver glitter cardstock from Doodlebug for the card base.

I hope you enjoy today's card. Thank you so much for stopping by, wish you a wonderful day!

My Happy Place

Hi everyone! It's me with another card inspired by MFT sketch challenge. I saw a lot of beautiful inspirations from all the ladies, I just can't help to give it a try as well.

Here's what I came up with..
Those monkeys on the banana boats are the most adorable ones from the set. Looove! To follow the sketch, I made a partial scene on the left side of my card. Then I stamp a sentiment, a really sweet one to go along with this card.
Happy and bright colors are my thing, they make me smile. I also hand drawn a yellow border with an alcohol marker, and layer an orange polkadot patterned paper as the base.

I hope you like my card as much as I do. Wish you a wonderful day!

Sunny Studio Angelic Card

Hello crafty friends! Lexa here today with an sweet card starring Little Angels stamp and coordinating dies. This set not only perfect for Christmas but also all year round, their sweet little faces won't bore you out. Just like I did for my card, it will be sweet for any occasions.

I start my card with two pieces of 4"x5.25" white cardstocks. The first piece will be my card base, so I blend some Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers Distress Inks as the sky, then I splat water with my brush. The second one is for the cloud, I die cut three pieces of clouds and one piece vellum to go along with it. To create some dimensions, I use foamtapes to adhere the cloud borders.
All the little angels are stamped with Versafine black ink on a piece of watercolor paper and I colored them with Distress Markers. I tend to keep them simple and white, so I just add a little shadow on their clothes and wings. Don't forget the rosy cheek for extra cuteness. :)
I absolutely LOVE Angelic Sentiments, it goes really well with the stamp set. The verse I used in my card catches my attention since the first time I saw this set. Lovely and comforting at the same time. I decided to use gold embossing powder to make it shine. Last but not least, I adhere my scene to a piece of 4.25"5.5" patterned paper with a gold foil in it to match my golden sentiment.

Here's a closer look to all the details in my card. The clear sequins add something special to finish my card. I hope you like what I made today. Thank you so much for stopping by and I wish you an amazing day!

MFT Sketch Challenge 302

Hello everyone! I'm here today with a card inspired by MFT's 302 Sketch Challenge. So many possibilities! Keep reading to see what I came up with. ;)

I choose my panda squad this time, they are adorable. I stamp them with versafine black ink without any coloring (save times!) I just add rosy cheeks with a pink alcohol marker. Easy peasy.
I stamp the bamboos for the background using four shades of green inks to create depth. The woodgrain patterned paper is also from My Favorite Things, I blend Tea Dye Distress Ink on the edges.

That's all for today, I hope you like my card. Have a great day!

Sunny Studio Penguins Parade

Hi everyone! Today I'm sharing my card with adorable penguins parade from the Sunny Studio Bundled Up stamp set. This set is a must have in my list, you know why? Just because it's so much fun to play dress up with these penguins. I'm so in love with this set. <3

Sunny Studio Stamps: Bundled Up Penguin Holiday Card by Lexa Levana (with a sentiment from Gleeful Reindeer)

I started my card with a piece of 4" x 5.25" smooth white cardstock and clear embossed LOTS of snowflakes in various sizes to create my background. Then I blend Milled Lavender and Shaded Lilac Distress Inks which turns out so love! I also added some glitter along the bottom as snow for the penguins to stand upon, using both silver and snowflakes Stickles. I stamped my three penguins and all the accessories on a piece of watercolor paper and colored them with Distress Markers. I fussy cut all of the pieces, it took a while but at then the most fun part began....mix and match all them together. Yay!

I made all of them standing there while holding a banner with a cute sentiment from the new release, Gleeful Reindeer stamp set. I'm truly happy with the fonts, you can call me crazy, but I always have 'this feeling' with fonts. If you know what I'm saying. Lol. Last but not least, I add some googly eyes for them- for extra cuteness.

Waving Hello !

Waving hello to all my crafty friends!
I miss all my Lawn Fawn, it's been a while since I play with them. And I'm so glad I have some time for this super cute mermaids. You know, I really so into magical creatures, fairies, mermaids, unicorns, you name it. I can't believe this is my first time coloring them since I bought them few months ago. Lol.

I start with blending Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Cracked Pistachio Distress Inks on a piece of 4"x6" smooth white cardstock. Then I sprayed some water. I have an idea to create waves with the vellums, so I did. The highest wave is filled with blue and clear sparkling sequins, I created a flat shaker card, they look like bubbles under the sea.
I color all my images with Distress Markers, then diecut them with the coordinating dies (seriously make my life easier. hehe) and pop them out is my favorite part.

I layer the scene on 4.25"x6" orange polkadot patterned paper, it creates a warmer tone to my card. It almost looks like a tropical sea to me. I'm so happy with tge result. And I hope you like it as much as I do.
Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day!
