Sending love & hugs

In my next AECP course
- Easy Ink Blending Techniques by Amy Lee -
I created this sending-love-and-hugs project.
First I blended some ink onto the white rectangle panel
and added some watercolor splatters
(both in turquoise/blue and brown).
Then I stamped an Altenew flower
and a Scrapberry's clock on white cardstock
and an Altenew leaf on craft cardstock,
watercolored them and cut them out.
After that I glued them on the panel
using the foam tape
and added some craft string.
I heat-embossed the sentiment in black
on craft cardstock and glued it too.
Finally I sticked the ready panel
on the Amy Design textured cardstock.

Shaker card

Today I would like to share a project
inspired by Nichol Magouirk
in my next AECP course - Seasonal Scene Building.
I prepared a rectangle piece of white cardstock for the background,
die cut a black frame and a panel of transparent foil. 
Then I added the distress ink using my foam tool. I also covered a part of the background with a circle to create the moon.
I stamped the pheasant, the bird's footprints and the bushes in black,
and the sentiment 'All good things are wild and free' on the transparency. 
After that I stamped the bird's footprints and the dots in white
on the black frame to create the scene.
Finally, I used a few layers of thick cardstock to build up the shaker.
I put confetti and two red and two blue tiny die-cut hearts inside
and finished the shaker.

I enjoyed making this first-in-my-life shaker card.
Thank you Nichol for your tutorial.

Folia metaliczna tym razem ... / Let It Shine - Foil

Today I would like to share a project
inspired by Carissa in my next AECP course - Let It Shine.

In this project I decided to transfer foil onto the front panel.
I covered a white cardstock piece with the double-sided adhesive tape
and die-cut the Sto Lat. Then I added three strips of the adhesive tape down the front panel of the card, each strip of a different length.
I laid a piece of foil over the die cut piece and the strips on the panel,
pressed them well and ran both through my Joy!crafts machine.
After that I glued the die-cut white lace frame, Sto Lat sentiment
and coordinating dots.
So I let the panel shine :-)

What do you think about the project?

Stemplowane tło / Stamped Background

Today I would like to share a project
inspired by Jennifer Rzasa's lesson: Stamped Background
(Clean and Simple Boutique Cards).
I have chosen a gorgeous flower and a leaf
from Altenew Adore You stamp set.

I prepared a watercolour paper in a size of a format a bit smaller than A5.
I stamped the image repeatedly over the background
using Stamperia Permanent Black Ink.
Then I watercoloured one flower (one red, one blue),
stamped the sentiment on a matching strip of paper
and finally punched smaller and bigger dots.

I glued the sentiments and the dots on the front panel of the cards.
And that's it - wonderfully simple and clean!
Thank you Jennifer,
 You inspire me :-)
