A wedding card for Altair Art

Happy Sunday to you all!
Today it's my turn on the Altair Art blog, and I'm sharing with you a wedding card I've made, using the gorgeous "Beautiful Moments" papers by Altair Art. These papers are just perfect for any wedding project (and to many more others).

This card is in our challenge theme of 'Celebrate':
I've used the 6x6 pad with 3 different papers, all matted with white cardstock:
I did some fussy cut of the flowers elements and the rings from these papers:

I've also made a pocket inside, to hold a gift card or money.
Here're some close-ups:

Sweet Summer's Days - August Counterfeit Kit

At Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog they have a beautiful inspiration kit, Cocoa Daisy July 2018 kit:
I really loved this one and went deep into my stash to gather my own version of this kit - Sweet Summer's Days.
Papers side A:
Papers side B:
Small scraps to counterfeit some of the embellies in the inspiration kit:
I really liked the hexagons and circles with the two patternes, so I used my hexagons and curcles dies and die cut from the small scraps. I also die cut some words and adhered them to some of the embellies:
Then I gathered some bigger pp scraps as my 'add on papers':
I've put stamps, honeycomb and hexagons dies, thickers, alphas in different sizes, labels, tags, tabs, baker's twines, enamel dots and sequins:
I counterfeited the daisy flowers in two ways: with a punch and with stamps, and colored the centers of the flowers with some yellow mist:
At the last minute I added a pinky pp with a white handwriting pattern, a dotted ribbon, a stamp for the coming Jewish holidays and a flair button:
It turned a bit autumnal colors, so I have a feeling that whatever leftovers I have from this kit, I will use them in a month or two... LOL.
I love how my kit turned out. now it's time to use it!

A birthday card for 'Celebrate' challenge at Altair Art

This month is my turn on Altair Art blog to host the monthly challenge, and since August is my birthday month (actualy - today!), I chose the theme of 'Celebrate', and kind of celebration:

Hop over to Altair Art blog to see the fab creations my fellow DT made for this challenge.
I made a birthday card, using the beautiful papers by Altair Art, but this time with some mixed media techniques.
I was inspired by the colors of the monthly challenge at Lindy's Gang blog:
So I went with this beautiful soft and subtle pallet. For my card I chose the colors of pink, purple and green.
I used my bigshot to cut the doily and then used embossing ink with Lindy's Weapping Willow Green ep to get this beautiful shiny subtle green color. I also die cut a circle using the same technique, for the center, and matted it with a circle cut out of Altair Art paper. I really love the shiny look it got!
I also die cut the flourishes and colored them with Lindy's Pop Rock Purple flat fabio spray.
The flower in the center was colored with Lindy's Chteau Rose flat spray and the center was colored with the Pop Rock Purple spary.
I used a beautiful pinky paper by Altair Art, both for the main rectangle, and the matting circle and the sentiment.
I heat embossed Kaisercraft stamp on the pinky paper with Lindy's Oom Pah Pah Pink ep, and splatterd some Lindy's Mad Hatter Mint shimmer spray and Chateau Rose spray.
The sentiment was heat embossed with Lindy's Weapping Willo Green ep and then stampped again with Ranger's ink, so it got a little shaddow.
For the final touch I used gauze, pink enamel dots and micro beads.
The Altair Art papers I've used are:

Good Day Sunshine - CSI case file no. 259


A new month means a new case file at CSI - case file no. 259:
The first element from the inspiration image that my eyes were drawn to, was the black spech buble with the white handwriting in it, so I incooprated it with one of the embellishments (a Kaisercraft's stamp, heat embossed with Lindy's Purely White ep):

I've used all 5 colors, and my clues to solve the case were: speach bublles (I have 5(!) in this layout. can you spot them all?), architectural elements (Echo Park's Eiffel Tower stamp, Kaisercraft's skyline stamp), transportaion (Kaisercraft's plane stamp), travel themed elements (Echo Park's suitcase stamp), cursive fonts, stamping and map pattern (sort of - the globe die cut).

For my base, I've used Altair Art pp (Sunrise 04 blue), as it mimics the sky so well. Prima's stitches stamp was used for framing the pp, and some Lindy's sprays were used to splatter here and there (Mango Mania flat fabio, Sidewalk Chalk flat fabio, Sassy Sapphire starburst shimmer spry). 
Enamel dots were added here and there.
The journaling, on Prima's Amber Moon papers cut to tags, document a wonderful day on our travel to Paris.
It was pretty cold and grey, but suddenly the sun came out of the clouds.
I used the inspiration word "Good", as the shining sun remined me the Beatles' song I've used for my title: "Good Day Sunshine":
I need to laugh, and when the sun is out
I've got something I can laugh about,
I feel good, in a special way.
I'm in love and it's a sunny day.
I've used sketch #151 from Sketchabilities:
I enjoyed working on this layout, and I really love the outcome.
Here are some close-ups:

Happy Dreams - a beach inspired card

Happy Saturday dear crafty friends,
Today I'd like to share with you a beach inspired card, all full with summer vibes, I've made using beautiful Lemoncraft's papers.
I love to add more and more layers to my projects, and this card is no exception:
I had some stamped and heat embossed seashells from a previous project (you can see it HERE), and I used them in this card:
I really love the one that is stamped and heat embossed on a vellum (Lindy's Gang Orange Creamsicle embossing powder)!
The sentiment is also stamped and heat embossed (Lindy's Gang Desert Moon Turquoise).
I used pieces of gauze, a twine and Finnabair's mini art stones, all adhered with Finnabair's soft gel medium:


I would like to enter this card to 2 challenges:
