Lots of inspiration in blog land today!  And I have three different styles of cards to share with you myself, so scroll down to see them and the video that I have made showcasing the New Day Card Kit as well as to find out how you can WIN!

Altenew - Inline Alpha Die - Bunny Love - Lostinpaper (card) 1 copy

I decided it would be fun to create a ‘faux embossed’ background using die cuts from the Inline Alpha Die set.  This little cutie is all dressed up for a party from Bunny Love and a glittery cupcake from Way Too Sweet.

Every time I looked at the Layered Cityscape Cover Dies I could only see a rainbow of buildings, so I just had to get that out of my system.

I did ‘stack’ a few of the die cuts on top of each other to add some dimension and the colouring was done with Tombows.

My final card uses the new Altenew New Day Card Kit and this is jam packed full of fun, I decided to create a video showing this kit and the process of making this card (as well as a quick peek at the kit).

I was so excited when Michelle asked me to Guest at the Fusion Card Challenge, and who wouldn’t love to be inspired by this,

I decided to film as I created so you could watch the process,

I was inspired by the sketch and the photo.  I basically kept the white overall look, the snowy (dots) and the colour palette, including the pop of red.  Sketches used to scare me, I was a total colour girl, now look at me go lol. I just want to say a BIG Congrats to Fusion, I can’t believe it’s been 3 years, how wonderful!!

So head on over HERE to see what you need to do to join in the fun,
Happy Fusion Papercrafting,

Video : How to make a Shaker Christmas Tag / Ornament!

I don’t know about you but I always forget to make my tags… that is until I start wrapping the presents lol.  And this is not necessarily a bulk tag to create but it is perfect for that special person or family.  But it was fun to make so I thought I would share the process with you!

Video : Watercolouring with Tombows – Fairy Christmas!

Back to Colour with ‘U’  today and I thought it was about time to crack out my Tombow’s again and I wanted to use them with a watercolour technique.  It did take me a couple of attempts to make this card, initally I was going for an ‘all blue’ look and look where I ended up….    well, the sky is blue!
