Twisted pop up card fro a coffee lover

Good day

One of my close friends celebrated her birthday lately and I made this twisted pop up card for her. She loves coffee, so I had to be creative since I do not have a mug die cut. So I used the bottom part of a dress with a piece of a swirl to create the mug/cup. I used some dry embossing with foil on the mug/cup and on the sentiment - that still come from my French days - I used some ink smooching on watercolor paper, - I used Alcohol ink in stream & Ruby and pearl in pearl & lake. I also used some glitter spray mist over all the inks - then I cut the center piece out with a label die after the paper has dried. I used a bigger die of the same lot and used an emboss folder from Marianne's design. Add it to the back and made a frame from a lighter blue that fitted insight the first cut. Added the mug/cup and the sentiment with some silver brads.
The inside I used papers from my stash and some Bugaboo digital images that I have coloured with my prisma pencils. 

Challenges I took inspiration from:
Crafty Catz #572 - Add some sparkle
Shopping our stash #458 - Tic tac toe - Ink smooching, stamps older than 3 years, foiling
The Outlawz Tuesday Colour 2 - 15 November - Colour wheel - 2 shades of blue + red

Thank you fro your visit.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 with Polkadoodles

Good day

On the first Wednesday of the month it is time for a new challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2. We are sponsored by Polkadoodles this time!

Kathie has created to lovely and easy sketches this round and with Christmas around the corner I decided to make a few festive cards. Sometimes it is very difficult to make Festive Cards with all the available images. We are in the Southern Hemisphere and have summer holidays over the Festive season, so Snowmen and snow does not correlate with us. But I've used some animals that you do find here.

For my first sketch I used a normal image called Too cute owl love, that I coloured with my Prisma pencils, but use some papers from my Christmas stash as well as a bulb die cut from my stash with some ribbon. 
Challenges I'm joining:
Digi Doodles #44 - Christmas/Winter
Morgan's Art World #11 - Anything goes
Unicorn #71 - Christmas/Winter
Crafty Sentiment - Anything goes
Aud Sentiment #287 - Christmas
Incy Wincy - All creatures big & small or spotted paper.

For my second project I used Noël Christmas Mouse and again coloured it with my Prisma Pencils. I used paper from Rosy Cosy Christmas paper stack and some gingham from Sunny studios. I used a some recycled twine in my stash. 

Challenges I'm joining are:
Colour Crazy Craft Wk 43 - Anything goes
Inspiration Station #17 - Animal Attic - The red & green in photo & animal in challenge
The Paper Shelter - Christmas is coming
