    For my card I used the pine cone digi stamp set


    Steps:
    1. I printed and hand colored the pine cones, I used regular Faber Castell colored pencils.
    I already had the card base with the oval cut on the front panel. I found some patterned paper from my stash, which by the way was a perfect match :)

    2. I fussy cut the sentiment and inked the margins. Glued everything together on a light blue card base which had an oval cut in the middle. I added some snow glitter paste and my card is ready!

    It was a real challenge to work with such beautiful digis. they are versatile and you can use them in various projects!

    Candy Holder with Fantasy Digi Stamps



    Hello everyone,
    today's project is the third from a series of projects designed  with some amazing digi stamps designed by the talented and extraordinary Jen Evers, founder of Koala T Crafts
    It is an amazing set of fantasy digi stamps, so cool to use in all types of projects, from cards, to scrapbooking projects.
    Release date of the set: 13th October!!!
    You can buy the stamps HERE
    YOU CAN GET A DISCOUNT!!! USE ALINA WHEN PURCHASING DIGIS FROM THE STORE AND YOU WILL GET 10% DISCOUNT!


    My third project is a candy holder, which can be ideal for kids parties and not only.
    The project is inspired from a video made by a dear person to me, a creative and talented lady who designs absolutely amazing things, Bianca Petroschi.
    For this project I used the crafter's companion embossing board
    I cut 3 hearts, 3 circles of different dimensions. I assembled the hearts and from the circles I made the stand. i glued everything together using a hot glue gun in order to make sure that everything stays together :)
    I colored the digi stamps using Promarkers and TGR Alcohol Markers and then I fussy cut them.
     I decided to use the little dwarf, the elf princess and the fairy. Each character has a representative object, the dwarf has the lamp, the princess the bird and the fairy has the crystal globe. 

    Stamps that I used:


    I designed the holder thinking it can be used for birthday parties or as a lamp. You will see in the pictures what I mean.
    It is very easy to do and the final result will be amazing :)

    Cards with Fantasy Digi Stamps from Jen Evers

    Hello everyone,

    Today I want to show some cards I made using the fantastic Fantasy Digi Stamps  designed by the talented and extraordinary Jen Evers from Koala T Crafts which were released on 13th of October and you will be able to purchase them from the KTC store, make sure you save the date :)
    This set of fantasy digi stamps is so cool to use in all types of projects, from cards, to scrapbooking projects, it is proper for both kids and adults.



    After designing other types of projects I decided it is time to make some cards, cause we are using digi stamps :)
    I tried to use different templates and styles. I was mainly thinking of cards which are perfect for kids and which may also serve as invitations for different occasion, like birthdays, meetings, different school activities and so on.

    Card nr. 1
    It is a quite simple card. I started by gluing down a piece of patterned paper which I think matches the theme. I colored the tree trunk using Spectrum Aqua markers and a stamping block. Not very difficult. It was pretty challenging to use it, cause it doesn't give you too many opportunities. I remembered that I have some birdies die cuts and I also found the little house. So, the inspiration just ~hit~ me. I die cut the elements and added them. And of course I couldn't leave the mushrooms aside. they are so cute :)
    This is the final result. What do you think?



    Card no. 2
    For the second card I used a template which I designed using my Ultimate Crafting Box from Crafter's Companion, very useful tool. 
    For this card, the start of the project is the magician stamp so I thought I could make him float. The template is pretty easy to make. You just need two pieces of thick card stock, first one is scored in half, the second one is scored in 4. The hole in the middle is made with the Ultimate box too, but you can do whatever shape you want. 
    On the sides I added patterned paper made using the digi stamps in a word document and printed on crafting paper.I colored the stamps using Promarkers and TGR alcohol markers. The magician is glued on a thread and attached to the inside of the opening. 
    This is what it turned out :) 





    Card no. 3
    For this one I used the Unicorn. It is such an adorable unicorn. I added a piece of watercolor paper on which I played with orange, yellow and a little red. I added a frame on which I splashed some brown paint and on top of it I glued the unicorn which is colored using Copic markers and Promarkers. The sentiment is made by me using unicorn font.



    Card no. 4
    For this card i used the same patterned paper that is on the one with the magician. The star here is the cute creature sending some flowers TO YOU! I didn't want to put too much on it that's why I only added some golden pearly dots. 


    Card no. 5
    This card can be both a card or an invitation. I really think it has a cute template and the characters are so funny and friendly. The background was made using watercolor and i just made some lines. I die cut the circles and added adhesive foam tape to make the card pop up. The stamps are colored using Promarkers and TGR Aclcohol markers. The speech bobbles are stamped and fussy cut, which by the way is a process that i used A LOT when working with these stamps, it is so relaxing and fun. I do enjoy fussy cutting. 

    Card no. 6
    This cute little dragon is so much fun to work with. I colored it with Promarkers and then fussy cut it. The background is made with a white piece of card stock on which I played with my brushed and my watercolors. Added a sentiment made in a word document and some sequins. 



    So, these are my cards using the Fantasy Digi Stamps by Jen Evers. Hope you like my projects and really hope you will purchase and play with them too. Feel free to leave a comment and follow me by pressing the follow button.

    My second project is a box card, which can be ideal for kids and not only.
    The template for this card is: 

    You need 2 pieces o card stock which will then be assembled together.

    I decided to cut in the middle the front panel because I used the door and I wanted to give the impression of an opening door. I used a curvy die for this. 
    I also embossed and cut some decorating elements using one of the Crafter's Companion Embossing Board. 

    I colored the digi stamps using Promarkers and TGR Alcohol Markers. 
    On the backside panel I added some patterned paper, also from my stash, I added the lady fairy and some embossed ivy leaves. I also added some small tags on which I wrote the sentiment. The patterned paper on the front panel is made by me using a handmade stamp. 





    I also addes ome 3d pearl drops and the little wings, flowers from the digi stamp collection.

    It gives an amazing effect. ;)

    Because I recently purchased some cute dies for slider cards I thought of trying them.
    Card making steps:
    1. Printed and colored the digis using Promarkers.
    2. Cut the card base 11 x 14 cm
    3. Cut 2 pieces of light brown card stock. One of them became the sliding panel and the other one is the back side of it. I applied sticky foamy tape for the pop up
