Altenew July Release Blog Hop


Hello guys!

I'm so happy to be back in blog joining Altenew July Release Blog hop!

This release is truly amazing and I love lot of staff from it!
Currently I'm living in a beach house so totally addicted to the sea. That's why I decided to create all projects for this hop in one color combo: turquoise + dark blue! You probably noticed that I love turquoise very much and this love started when I was 3 y.o. and my aunt presented me turquoise earrings!
Ok! So let's start my part of the hop!

I used three new stamp sets from the July release:

I'm in love with each of these!

For my cards I used some easy techniques: ink blending, heat embossing and watercoloring.
That's something old that I also used today:

Altenew & Tombow USA Collaboration Blog Hop

Hello, dear friends!

Today we will have some fun together with Tombow USA! 
For this blog hop I made interactive card with gorgeous butterfly.

 I used Altenew's Bejeweled stamp set and coordinating dies to emboss on vellum with white embossing powder. I colored butterfly with Tombow Brush Pens set of 10 (Portrait ). I enjoyed the process and especially soft colors and easy blending.
This butterfly turned out like a wood one, so I decided to place her on a piece of real wood using Altenew's Cherry Wood . The Card base is also wooden - Woodgrain white cardstock.
Finally, for the sentiment I used the one from Best Mom stamp set and added some sequins.

And now little bit closer look to see interactive element! I made my butterfly slide over the wood up and down in a very simple way - I used a paper clip. One end is to hold and move and the other - to adhere the butterfly on it!
I will add a video on my Instagram @fotinia_scrap - so you can check how it works there!

What about prizes?
Here they are:

TWO $30 Tombow USA prize packs and  TWO $30 Altenew gift certificates   up for grabs. Winners will be picked randomly from the comments across all of the blogs in the hop left by June 3rd. Winners will be announced on the Tombow USA and Altenew blogs on Saturday, June 4, 2016.

Time to hop!

Neat & Tangled May 2016 Release Day 4


Today is almost the last day of Neat & Tangled May Release week and new products  to dream for!

I'm showing this time gorgeous Journaling Alphas Die set! When I first saw it I had tons of ideas but my memory is bad and when it comes to create release cards I remembered only one - my favorite ever way to use alphas dies - use it like a cover plate die! Font is very cool and you really can use it everywhere including scrapbook layouts.
I highlighted two letters that together say "Hi" and placed mustache guy in the morning rays of sun to say it)
I used our newest  Big Top Birthday stamp set and coordinating dies along with released also today Stitched Sunburst Dies. Background cardstock is by Bazzill.

Please visit N&T blog to take a part in a Giveaway and see more cards from our Design Team!

Tomorrow we will be back and show you all the beauty of this Release week!

This is the third day of Neat & Tangled release week and we have some sweeties for you! Who don't like donuts???? Only my husband when I eat them ahahah))) New Yes to Donuts stamps set is super cute as well as Big Bold Brew that can be mixed together perfectly!
I made this fun card using our newest stencil for background and spray. Also I can't stop using action wobbllers, so this guy is spinning and jumping around! Donut glaze I covered with Glossy accents and added some new sequins from Summer Sun Mix.

Neat & Tangled May 2016 Release Day 2


First of all I want to thank you all for your kind comments to my yesterday's post with 1st day of N&T May release, sending you hugs and kisses!!!
Первым делом хочу сказать большое спасибо за комментарии к вчерашнему посту и послать вам море поцелуйчиков и обнимашек!!!

So this is the second day of release and new amazing products for you to put in a wishlist!
This Awesome die set is my new "want to use it everywhere" :)
And of course pay attention to cute clouds that are so versatile! Love them and made two cards for today:
Итак второй день релиза НиТов настал и с ним новинки для вашего списка с хотелками!
Новый набор с надписью Awesome - это мое новое "хочу впихнуть теперь везде" :)
Do see this little angels? Tomorrow you will see the whole new stamp set and understood that I added something by hand! Guess what?
Видите этих маленьких ангелочков? Завтра вы увидите полный набор штампов и поймете, что я что-то дорисовала от руки. Есть идеи что именно?
For die cutting for both cards I played with different colors of Bazzil cardstock and found perfectly matching for our newest sequins!
В этих открытках я исопльзовала в осносном вырубку и мне очень помог разноцветный картон от Бэзила, я даже нашла пару листиков, которые идеально сочетаются с новыми пайтеками!

I also use our newest sequin mixes in summer juicy colors. Each pack contains a single color in a variety of sizes (4mm, 6mm, and 8mm):
Вот такие пайеточки из этого релиза я прилепила на открытки, они разноразмерные и это очень удобно!
Summer Sun mix
Royalty Blue mix

Please check N&T blog for more details!

Hope you enjoying our Release week and will be back tomorrow!
Надеюсь релизная неделя вам по душе и мы увидимся завтра!

Neat & Tangled May 2016 Release Day 1

Hello and welcome to the first day of N&T May 2016 Release!
Привет и добро пожаловать на первый день Майского релиза от НиТов!

This release is very fun and unique! I especially love these circus buddies from Big Top Birthday stamp set that goes with coordinating Big Top Birthday dies.
Этот релиз очень веселый и уникальный! Особенно мне нравятся эти цирковые чудики из нового набора Big Top Birthday ( к ним есть координирующие ножики).
Circus is always much fun - so I placed the main panel on a action wobbler!
Цирк - это всегда веселье - именно поэтому я решила посадить свою главную панельку на вобблер - это такая пружинка, благодаря которой панелька теперь пружинится, скачет и крутится из стороны в сторону.

For coloring I used watercolor brush pens and for the sentiment new Awesome die that I die cut in two colors: red and black and adhered them together with a little displacement.
Для раскрашивания я использовала акварельные фломастеры-кисти, а надпись сделала при помощи нового ножа Awesome die, которым вырезала слово в двух цветах: красном и черном и склеила их с небольшим смещением.
Cardstock I used for this card is by Bazzill.
