LIVE INSPIRED- 2 dreamy cards with Les Papiers de Pandore

Hello and welcome on Thursday!

Few weeks ago Julie from a small and cute French paper brand Les Papiers de Pandore asked me whether I would like to guest design with their products. I couldn’t say no as I’ve been watching the papers for a while and the new collections were just stunning! You know this kind of paper which is a little bit different, comes in unusual colors and actually scraps itself!

I started from some cards to warm myself up!

CARDS 2

 

As you can see the papers are beautıful and the colors are just amazing! I missed this shade of purple in my scrap stash! I mixed the “Crochetin” line with some beautiful Prima flowers, feathers cut with silhouette, stamps from Citrus Twist Kits, some random embellishments and of course lots of watercolors and gesso and I ended up with 2 art journal style cards!

Here are some more detailed peeks:

NOEL- clean and simple Christmas Card

Hello loves!

Here is my second take on Prima’s 12 Days of Christmas Cards challenge- the card I made for day 9 focused on clean and simple cards.

CS cardproducts: PRIMA MARKETING: 846442 Holiday Jubilee “Nostalgia” 12×12 paper , 846060 Special Delivery “Special Delivery” 12×12 paper, 543150 Prima Flowers, 570644-Prima Woodgrain Alphabet

 I was thinking I’m not such a paper flower girl but now I like them more and more on my cards! They really add this little something and make the project come together super quickly!

The process of making and layering a card is super easy and once you start you can make many cards in a short time! I think it’s a plus in busy time before Christmas :) Below you can see my step by step photo instructions how to put card like this together!

HELLO Tuesday! with Citrus Twist Kits :)

Hello everyone!

How are you, have you survived Monday? I’ll tell you that since I started working I find weekends too short- I wouldn’t mind one extra day to play catch up, rest and charge batteries, but hey, that’s life :) To sweeten up beginning of the week I have a little card with mix of happy products in sweet, pastel shades- all of them pulled from my September CTK kits!

 September Citrus Twist Kits kits: “Magical” main kit, “Big Deal” embellie kit, “She Said” patterned paper kit and “Favorite” Pocket life kit; acrylic paints, pastels

After making this card a while ago I love including pocket and some cute tags on my card’s front page, I think it makes them totally different and more fun! This card we gave to our friend and I like it that both of us- me and my boyfriend- had space to write some wishes and happy thoughts!:)

Wish Upon A Star- Lemon Owl Gift Set

Hey my dears! I’m waving at you from the gorgeous south of Turkey where we are staying until end of this week! I would like to share today a quick project which I prepared using gorgeous papers from Lemon Owl! Soft tones and lovely details of these papers amaze me every time I reach for them:)

I prepared this simple card a while ago for my friend who was celebrating her birthday. I simply layered some banners in different sizes and than added a sentiment and little stamps confetti here and there. I also had a tiny gift and I thought it would make it more special if I wrapped it nicely.

I prepared a little earring holder following the idea of my card- layered banners, stars and soft colors. It was a fun way to use up the scraps and I also could make my gift more personalized.

Graduation Card with July Citrus Twist Kits

When I was in Poland (seriously, has it been a week since I came back??) I managed to go to my brother’s graduation. He became a master at wood technology and you should see the stuff he makes- it’s really impressive! Actually I think I will be able to show you his super creative idea for my 30×30 paper storage in Ikea’s Expedit unit which I managed to pack into the suitcase and take to Istanbul with me, but it’s another story! Today I want to show you a card made for his graduation, I used Citrus Twist Kit July kits as it was the only thing I had on hand at home:)

Podczas mojego pobytu w Polsce (na serio, to już tydzień od powrotu??) udało mi się trafić na obronę mojego brata, który oficjalnie został magistrem technologii drewna. Robi z drewnem niesamowite rzeczy, jak tylko zrobię zdjęcia pokażę jego super kreatywny pomysł na organizację moich scrapowych papierów, dopasowany idealnie do ikeowego Expedita i na tyle poręczny, że mogłam zabrać to ze sobą w bagażu podręcznym:) zainspirowani?:) Dzisiaj przygotowałam kartkę, którą zabrałam ze sobą na obronę- w całości powstała z lipcowych kitów Citrus Twist Kits.

I had so much fun making this card, somehow everything worked great and July stamp set was an amazing match with the theme I had in mind! Visit Citrus Twist Kits blog to see more great examples of cards which our DT made with July kits!

Kartka była pierwszą rzeczą przygotowaną z nowych kitów, a stemple w zestawie idealnie wpisały się w temat pracy! Na blogu Citrus Twist Kits znajdziecie wiele więcej świetnych kartek przygotowanych w tym miesiącu przez nasz DT, zajrzyjcie tam po nieco inspiracji!
