Card Making Magic – my take on Designer Card Front die

Good morning friends and happy Tuesday everyone!!!

There is so much going on lately that I have ton’s to catch up with you my friends.

I had my first online Facebook classes and I’m already planning to arrange another ones.

I also made a few tutorials and here is one from them:

I was playing with Card Making Magic dies creating this lovely card.

CARD MAKING MAGIC DIE SET HALF TEARDROP

Shop UK / Shop US

I love this simple idea and I’m very happy how this card turned out.

I also wanted to show few of my recent makes as well (I have another YT video, were I’ve created this purple card):

Plus I’ve made a few others as well:

And here is a card I’ve made on my first classes:

This card was entirely made out of my design papers, which you can download here:

Life and craft update, gesso accident and the most epic happy mail… :)

Hi friends,

I’m hoping you are all well. I know that lately, I’ve not been much active, but we had a bit of struggles with my son’s allergies and eczema. We have scheduled a visit to the regional hospital in Inverness, which is a 100 miles drive from our town, and then hopefully he will have his new meds sorted out and his condition will improve.

I wasn’t planning to make any videos, maybe just share a photo or two of the cards I’ve made. I’ve been working on some new inspirations of collections, which will be coming to the Craft Stash store shortly as well as unfortunately, I had to make not one but two sympathy cards.

I must tell you, my friends, that sympathy cards are the type I favour the less, always make them with a heavy heart but these are the cards I never say no to making as is someone is dealing with a loss the last thing I want them is to worry about the card. So here are two cards I’ve made:

And now something more cheerful!!!

I received the biggest, the best happy mail ever!! This unbelievably huge parcel come to me all way down from the US. This gift came from my dear friend Cindy, which I’ve met last year on the Craft World and we’ve been good friends since. Cindy is one of the most generous and kind people I know and I’m so happy that God has given me such an incredible and supportive friend like her.

Before showing you what’s in the parcel I must tell you, my friends, that I received it right before my shift at work. I know I wanted to open it so badly. so I quickly jumped into my studio and tried to clean up my desk so I could record it for my YT channel… And then it happened!! I accidentally kick the tub of gesso, and once it hit the floor all contend had splashed all over including my carpet, my desk, even my hair, lol

And by the time I finish to clean it all up I had to go to work. This was the longest shift ever, as I just couldn’t wait to go home and open my mail. So without any further ado, here is my video from opening that parcel:

this pack is absolutely humongous!!! and I love every single bit of it. not only me, but my son also loved his gift 🥰

One last thing my friends I wish to invite you all to my live I will have on Facebook this coming Thursday, where I will show you how to create some lovely papercraft gifts, which will be lovely creations not only as birthday gifts but also something you can use for this Mother’s Day coming and all your round!

And just to let you know, Craft Stash is having tons off offers and deals, which will be coming for entire week celebration.

And here is a best highlight from today:

Busy, busy, big boy birthday and… freebie!

Hey friends,

It’s been few days since my last post, but It’s been crazy time. I got a few commissioned work for magazines and few orders. Plus my son has just turned 3 last Friday!!! I cannot even tell you my friends how happy I’m with all the blessings happening to me right now.

Last few days I’ve been working on some projects I cannot share with you, but today afternoon I’ve decided to take a wee break and to do something for myself. Earlier on I was sneak peaking on What’s hot on the Craft Stash and noticed this awesome Flash Sale!!

Shop UK / Shop US

I realised that this offer includes one of the dies I really really love, so I’ve decided to play with it, and here is my step by step card:

Score A4 card in half
cut a slightly smaller layer
add texture with embossing folder
cut frames
3 from gold card and two from white
trace oval die on design paper
attach design oval to white one and add frame on top using layer of foam tape
add two gold ovals to the sides and main panel on the centre
stamp sentiment
use banner die to cut it out
tie a bow
attach your banner and bow with hot glue
as finish touch add a pearl button

I hope you will like this photo tutorial as this is quite new form for me and I’m still learning.

As a bonus my friends I have a little gift for you:

And to wrap up this post and send you a Drop of Sunshine I’m sending you a lovely photo I’ve made once we were having a fun day at the beach near by on the weekend.

And as always I’m sending you lots of love and positive energy. Stay safe and blessed. Hugs. Marta

Do not underestimate your mental health and please look after yourself and everyone close to your heart.

Love yourself and be kind to yourself ❤️❤️❤️

My friends,

I’m hoping you are great and that you had a wonderful day. I was actually planning to post this early morning… but as they say better later than never.

I’ve made a quick video from all clips and photos I’ve recorded from one of our trips we had some time in February. I wanted to post it today as it is a very special day. Today is the last day of Easter Octave called Divine Mercy Sunday.

This is a time of forgiveness and receiving grace. And this is a perfect way of clearing your heart and forgive to yourself in order to love yourself.

I hope you will enjoy my quick video as well as a little bonus of printable quotes I’ve created for you my friends so you could create a lovely card or project.

It was a really beautiful day and we all enjoyed it so very much. I hope you like my today post and I’m wishing you all a wonderful day and a wonderful week. Hugs. Marta ❤️

The power is inside you…

Hey friends,

I’m hoping you are great. Today I wanted to share with you a super fun card idea that is very easy to recreate as long as you have some nesting dies and some colouring mediums. I’m using Distress Oxides as they are blending fabulously.

The focal point of my card is this lovely chipboard quote from Craft O’Clock, which says “The power is inside you” and this is the message I want to sent today to you my friend. You are absolutely amazing and you have this power inside you to follow your dreams, to make a change in your own surrounding and do whatever sparks your heart. With this message, I wish to cheerlead you to not give up and stay focus on the things which brings you joy. I’m praying for all of you my friends to have this amazing life filled with love and passion.

I also hope my today’s video will spark some creativity in you and will encourage you to create some cards using this lovely idea.

For my todays card I’ve used up few of the Distress Oxide inks, which as I’ve mentioned in the video are currently on the sale. There is a multibuy offer which allows you to get 15% OFF, whenever you buy a minimum 3 products from the entire Distress range.
