Tiny Townies HAIR PLAY ♥♥♥ Stamping Bella

Today I'm sharing with you a Birthday card made for my dear friend Celine who had her Birthday a few weeks ago. I chose Tiny Townies HAIR PLAY image and coloured it using Distress ink pads. I went with the happier colours this time, lol.

I absolutely love the sentiment "I'm so happy to have a friend like you" it can be used on basicly almost every card!

Design papers used are from Echo Park.

Interactive card ❤ la-la land crafts

This week's challenge at la-la land crafts was to design an Interactive card. I created a
Gatefold reveal card 
using cute hippo from last year's Holiday release.

This is my card closed with a vellum slider. I used a sentiment from No Peeking Clear Stamp Set and stamped it to one of the tags from Large tag set.

Once you pull the vellum part down and open the gates the image reveals. The interactive part are those flags. When you open the side gats they pull the flags and the image reveals. When you close them it gets covered again (partialy not whole).

Image was coloured using Distress ink pads:
hippo: hickory smoke, black soot
bow, box: seedles preserves, black soot
teal: broken china

Pinata Squidgy ♥♥♥ Stamping Bella

Tamara here with you. Last Thursday was my daughter's 7th Birthday and a few months back she said she would like a piñata for her Birthday. We planned her Birthday where they don't have the option to have it so I ordered this totally awesome Pinata Squidgy rubber stamp and made a piñata card for her.

I chose happy and bright colours for her. Image was coloured using Distress ink pads. Sentiments come from different stamp sets (also from Stamping Bella).

I decorated the card with a few die cuts, white gel pen and glitter.

Tiny Christmas ☆ C.C. Designs

In September I made a Christmas candy holder tutorial with the image from Tiny Christmas. Before making that tutorial I made one sample just to check out if all the measurments are ok and if it looks ok. I'm a bit of a control freat, I admit that. lol

So here's the first Christmas candy holder featuring a super cute deer from the Tiny Christmas clear stamp set.

Image was coloured using Distress ink pads on Langton 300g HP watercolour paper. I cut it out using matching outline dies. Sentiment comes with the images.

Design papers are from Doodlebug. All dies used are from C.C. Designs.

There's enough space to add some candy inside. Wouldn't this make a perfect Christmas prezzie for co-workers and friends?
