Summer with cherries

Hello my friends! It's time for a new challenge over the Paper Makeup Stamps Digi Makeover challenge blog. This week theme is All Tied Up. Easy, isn't it?! Just use a digi image on your project and tie something  and you are ready to participate on the challenge.

Sentiments: "Most beautiful moments in life often come as a surprise"
"Happy Birthday"

The  image I used is called Christi with Cherries. She is so beautiful. It's a bit early for cherries but don't you love to pick cherries on the tree and eat them in a warm sunshine. Summer is the best time! Christi's dress is paper pieced and I added Glossy Accents to the cherries and her belt. Paper with red dots is my own design. Also I did my own sentiments. The stitching on the papers are all made digitally. 
Actually I removed the big pink pearl on top left corner. I just noticed the photo was done earlier. So sorry. Just imagine the card without it. It looks much nicer now :)

You are so precious

Hello my darling friends. It's time for a new challenge over the Paper Makeup Stamps Digi Makeover challenge blog. This week theme is really easy: Punches and/or Dies.

Sentiment: You are so precious

Never ever had any challenge affected me as last week PMS Kraft Paper challenge did. I fell in love with Kraft paper. It is perfect matting layer. I love it! 
I used lovely Color Kid Valentine on my card. I think she is adorable not only for Valentine's day cards but also for Birthday card for someone special or even a Thank you card. She is colored with Pro- and Flexmarkers. I also added Glossy Accents to the heart and stickles to her bow and scarf.


Inside of the card is kept simple. Layout is similar as front of the card, I just added few butterflies on there.

Sentiment: Congratulations
Image is colored with Pro- and Flexmarkers. Wooden background is a digital paper. I added nr 60 to represent the age of the recipient. There is also some die-cut branches and few golden brads. Very simple card but I love how it turned out.


In inside of the card is a pocket. I like to make pocket cards :) I used a Spellbinder Postage Stamp dies to cut out the sentiment and also for the top of the bottom layer on main image.

Kraft paper

Hello my darling friends. It's time for a new challenge over the Paper Makeup Stamps Digi Makeover challenge blog. This week theme is Kraft Paper.


I was really worried then I find out the theme. My main concern was where do I get a Kraft paper. While I was thinking for places where I can buy it, my eyes stopped on top of my closet. Under the wrapping papers was big roll of Kraft paper. I have had this fantastic stuff for years and I didn't even knew I have it.
 

On my card I used lovely Melody Fairy. She is colored with Pro- and Flexmarkers and I also added some stickles to her wings. All the stitching on pattern papers are made digitally.
The round sentiment in front is freebie from Nettie's Cards blog. She has lots of beautiful sentiment digis. They all are in English but 'cause I needed one in Estonian, I changed the text.

Thanks!

Hello my sweet friends. This card goes to all my sweet blog buddies. You are amazing friends. Your nice comments about my cards makes me so happy. "I can no other answer make, but thanks and thanks"


It's Monday again and it's time for a new challenge over the Paper Makeup Stamps Digi Makeover challenge blog. This week theme is Sentiment Focus. So it's perfect chance to skip the coloring of the image and use a sentiment as focal point. If you don't have any sentiment stamps there is a fabulous choice of word art on PMS, or you can make your own using your regular word processing program.


I made an easel card to show off two wonderful sentiments from Everyday thanks digi set. Card it self is very simple. Thanks to die cuts it looks fancy but was easy to make. I really love how it turned out. I probably make more of these in other colors as well.


Below is a photo of the inside. I have to make at least one more similar card. I can see a perfect place for a pocket :)

Meanwhile go over to the Paper Makeup Stamps blog to get inspired by my very talented team mates. I'll come back later to share another card I made last week.

Materials used:
Stamps: Paper Makeup Stamps - Everyday thanks

Inks: Dovecraft - Berry Purple

Papers: White and purple papers from my stash
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities - Radiant Rectangles; Cheery Lynn Die - Mini Dimensional Butterflies with Angel Wings; Marianne Design Creatables - Flower & leaves
Embellishments: Viva Decor Pearl Pen - Ice White;
Self Adhesive Rhinestones; Ribbons from my stash

I'd like to participate on following challenges
Fab 'n' Funky Challenges - Challenge 173 - For girls
Flutterby Wednesdays - Challenge 242 - A recipe (flowers, at least 1 butterfly and die-cut/punch)
Simon Says Stamps Challenge - Anything goes
Crafty Ribbons Challenge - Challenge 46 - Anything goes with ribbon
