Peaceful Wreath | Altenew | Layered Stamping | Concord & 9th

When I saw this layered wreath stamp set from Altenew I knew I had to get it. It is even more perfect than expected. This will definitely be used for many Christmas cards!

I have combined this stamp & die set from Altenew with a sentiment from Concord & 9th, which I have heat embossed in my own embossing powder mix. 

Do you know that you can make your own embossing powder mix? You just have to choose some of your powders and mix them together. And yes, the result is of course unkown :)


I have used some of my Altenew mini cubes inks for this card. I didn't quite have dark enough colours so this turned out to be a Christmas wreath in lighter colours. 

I honestly cannot tell you which embossing powder colours I have mixed together. Truth be told, this mix is from some Online Card Class I took years ago. My guess is a mix with black, gold and silver. Nevertheless, it looks fantastic.


I have used a white and dark green Polychromos pencil to make details on the wreath to give it more deepth. 

Oh, and that background die - Just love it! So glad I also got this one from Altenew. Some might not have thought of using it for a Christmas card, but I say you can use it for any occasion. 

Happy crafting, 
Pia

Fresh Flowers | Clearly Besotted Stamps | Polychromos Colouring | Birthday Wishes

For the past two years I have attended drawing classes at evening school. This has gotten me to invest in the full set of FaberCastell Polychromos colour pencils. And I love them!

It takes practice to get better and better with them, but I am persistant and continue to learn to get better with them. 

This flower stamp from Clearly Besotted took a while to do but it was good blending practice. 


I am very much pleased with the result. Must admit that this stamp "Fresh Flowers" is one of my old favorites from Clearly Besotted. 

Polychromos colours used: 

 Leafs: 171 + 266 + 159
Grey: 273
Flowers: 103 + 119 + 160 + 193




This years first drawing class semester at evening school begins in a week and I am so much looking forward to it. We might be working more with colouring and deepth this coming semester. 

Keep colouring!
Pia

Hooray for You | Bitty Burst | Concord & 9th | Turnabout Stamping


I hope you are not getting tired of seen turnabout stamped cards. These turnabout stamps are still high up on my favorites list. 

Again I am giving the Bitty Burst turnabout stamp from C&9th some love. This stamp is so versatile and can be used for all kinds of occassions. 


Here I have chosen more masculine colours and let the navy colour dominate. Voila, and a masculine card has been created!

The Danish sentiment means "Hooray for you". 

You can see a couple of other cards created in this style over on Hobbyboden.dk's blog.


That's is all for today. Wishing you the best day!

Pia
