I know is Christmas Day, but we were in preps for new member of our little family (http://tobisiaslilthing.blogspot.co.uk/2016/12/meet-tula.html).

Now time to move to Valentine's and other occasions :)

Yeah... time to start thinking  about next event - Valentines Day!

Already have few images ready (still thinking about card for my man tho), just not sure if all of them will be used for Valentine's cards... hmmm... maybe some on Anniversary cards or Wedding cards...

Here few samples:

Mice :) Hmmm Valentines or Engagement card???


Maybe even nice Birthday card :)

Hmmm... Anniversary card I think... but can be also Birthday card, don't you think?

Already finished one card and sent it away as extra piece to friend, hope she'll like it and use it :)

Winter Wonderland

I'm in love with digi stamps! Oh yes!

Another project with gorgeous image created by Ching Chou Kuik. I didn't use too many colours, just few of my faves 😊. I tried not to overload my new Christmas card.

So.. colours used this time: light blue, lavender, dark pink, gold, light yellow, light orange, cherry red, carmine, emerald green, spring bud, silver.


Here work in progress 😊.

Decided to use textured light blue paper and funny pinky/purple/green paper with swirly flowery motif with silver mirri card as layering for my new card.

For nice, kind of softy touch I distressed edges of image and sentiment with scissors and added bit of glitter glue for some shiny effect.


I'm really happy with the look of my new Christmas card. Hope you like it too 😊.

Till next post friends!

This month is busy for me from colouring point of view. I decided to join The Daily Marker 30 Day challenge on Instagram :)

I used it for birthday card for my neighbour :)

Colouring class

I know one thing, I still need lots of practice and lots of tips to be better with my colouring and blending when making stamped cards.

So.... colouring class was and is perfect idea to learn more. 

Where to find them? Internet is great to search for all kind of things and also for colouring classes. I found mine through Facebook :) If you are interested to join just check Fb group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/kitandclowder/ or go to web: http://www.kitandclowder.com/

I was practicing hair colouring lately, also trying to improve face colouring. Sometimes is just a matter of using different technique, sometimes you need to learn some basics about light sources, shadings etc.
My latest colouring:


One of beautiful digis from Ching-Chou etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/gjzcck. I love her art.


Something from Dom's colouring book :)



Cute Tiddly Inks stamps :)

I think I'm better with hair colouring now, bit more practice with the rest needed, but as some smart people saying: Practice makes perfect! :)

Till next post friends!

Kraft card and pencils

You know it is rather strange that I never coloured on kraft cards before. I'm making cards since good 10 years and yes, I stamped on kraft cards few times at my friend's house, but only big sentiment stamps.

Few days ago I bought kraft cards in one of shops and decided to give a go :). I choose 'Clara' stamp from KraftinKimmie (I think this one is my new favorite for Christmas cards).

I like blue and silver colour combo on my Christmas cards, but this stamp I coloured with reds, greens, red-brown and orange shades, so rather traditional.

In my crafty stash I found papers in matching colours.

First I cut another kraft paper piece to make nice 145x145 mm base for my card. Then cut chosen papers to size I wanted.

For this project I used simple layout with not too many layers - just few squares layered on each other :).
To soften it a bit I add gold thread between them and round sentiment stamp from other KrafinKimmie sets, cut with die and few gems.


This is my first card with kraft paper :)

and left bottom :)

Hope you like it :)

Card making competition? Why not!

I'm massive reader of cardmaking magazines. Every year they're giving their readers a chance to become part of their DT. So... since 2 years I'm trying my hardest - no luck so far, but I'm not thinking about giving up - oh no!

Last year I sent these 3 cards:


Sentiment as a centrepiece


Flower girl in blue and yellow


Lovely mice :)

They were nice cards, but... I'm not jury member :) And I tried again this year with these 3 (sorry for blurry pics):


Scrapberry's fairy stamp


Pirate girl from Debbi Moore Designs


Little couple from Lili of the Valley.

No luck again, but I'll try again next year :)

I'm practicing my colouring skills, so who knows maybe third time will be lucky for me :) Fingers crossed for that Ladies and Gentlemen please :)

Till next post friends!

Kid at school, so you need more cards :)

I think you know, how funny can be when your child is at nursery/school and he/she is invited for Birthday Party or is a Teacher's day or end of school year. Cards are needed!!!

Dom is artistic soul, but he still need his Mummy when he is invited for party, cause Mummy stamping nicer and she's better with colouring :). Few Dom's creations below:


We had lots of fun with these ladybirds :)


Dom's last Christmas card for nursery teachers - he still loves sticking papers :) but now he also practicing colouring and stamping so... who knows :)

 Card I made for Dom's nursery friend Grace for her birthday last year.


Lily of the Valley boys for his friend Logan :)


Cutie doggy for twins: Jasmine and Jessica :)



Spotlight technique and bear for teachers :)




I'm waiting when Dom will be old enough to teach him all I know about crafting if he still will be interested in it :). Hope he will ;)

This Friday Dom is going for Grace's 5th Birthday - this time we are bit smarter :) We know for sure she's fan of Elsa and Frozen ( she was last year too, but we didn't know :) ). So this year card for her:


My version of Elsa made with Julia Spiri digi stamp: Flower girl.

Hope Grace will like her card and prezzies ;)

That's all for today! Till next post!
