Embossing at DP2 and a Baby Christening Box

Hi there sweet peeps! Hope you're having a great week; we are having a new challenge  this week at Mo's Digital Pencil Too, and our extremely talented DT sister, Tracy has chosen


this time for us. I admit I rarely use embossing on my cards, I had to search for an hour my embossing plates, put somewhere "safe" as all the things I don't find. Now, you also have the choice of wet embossing, that's about using the heat gun, which I don't have; so those of you who use this technique please show us what you can make, with a Mo image on, of course!

A couple of months back I made a sort of baby Christening box for a boy, I thought then I should reiterate that because I liked the way it turned out. Someone asked me to make her something similar for a baby. Ok, I said, is that a boy or a girl? Just for a baby, she said because she just loved that one and would like to have one she could use in both cases. Well, I thought that was weird, but eventually I came up with this "neutral" purple (yes, I know it's rather girlie, but it's not pink, right?):):

I also made some quilled flowers, I think they are pretty and delicate and look beautifully on baby cards.

Card recipe:
Image; Mo Manning- Spit Happens
Backing paper: 300 gr printed cardstock, no DP; some paper made with stamps and embossed paper
Coloring medium: copics, promarkers
Flowers and embellishments: WOC flowers, quilled flowers, pearls and ribbon, Prima pins, feathers, wooden star from stash, clay bee
Misc: acetate

The baby pic can be inserted under the acetate. There are two sheets of acetate with the frame die cut between them. Here are some close-ups:

And the flower cluster:

That's it from me today, hope I've inspired you to male something similar:) With a baby pic in these look lovely!

This challenge is running for two weeks at Mo's Digital pencil Too; so plenty of time for you to join in! Also, please go take a look at the wonderful craetions of my DT sisters! I always look forward to see what they come up with every week!

And, don't forget, Mo is awarding a 5 dollar shopping spree  at her store here for one lucky winner in every 25 entries! Good luck to all and take care!

Lili's Little Fairies DT Card

Hi again! This is my second post for this Thursday, please scroll down for my DP2 post. 
At Lili's Little Fairies we have a lovely challenge for you to play along: 

Easy peasy, huh? That's what I thought too before I realized I didn't quite use a charm, I mean, not the type you can find under that name in a store..lol. Still, that bead stuff I reckon to be a charm:) If not, maybe the fan would count in:)):

Card recipe:
Image- Lili of the Valley- Aimi with lantern
DP: not a clue, some old paper pack I bought at the Glitter Pot, cannot find it anymore
Embellishments: flowers/Wild Orchid Crafts, ribbon/Ribbon Girl and stash, fan, feathers,beads/stash

No sentiment this time, I couldn't make up my mind what this is for so I will add something to suit the occasion.

This card is for sale in my Etsy shop :

This is it for me today, hope you will find some time to play along this week. Don't forget to use a charm and of course a LOTV stamp on to enter the draw!
We are being sponsored this week at Lili's Little Fairies by the lovely Mary and Andrea from

with a yummy ribbon kit which would make anyone's day!

Thank for coming by!
Big hugs to all!

Something New at Digital Pencil Too

Hi there, sweet friends and welcome to a brand new challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil Too! I am the hostess of this week's challenge so time for me to rack my brains and came out with :

Now, it's up to you to interpret that the way it suits you best, I was thinking of a new beginning, new baby, new year, new product, lots of possibilities here, just remember to use a Mo image on in order to enter the drawing for a  $5.00 gift voucher to Mo's online store here!

I made a new year greeting card  in black,red and gold, thought this would look lovely and festive and would make pop this truly adorable Mo image: New Year Baby Bella and Bronte

I just couldn't get around to take a good pic of this one; the golden papers are too shimmery and the red ones are also glossy. 

Card recipe:
Image: Mo Manning-  New Year Baby Bella and Bronte
Coloring medium: copics/promarkers
DP: Cajoline Scrap-digital, the golden one is cut from a birthday hat
Embellishments: Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, leaves and metal corner, the bottle and glasses are confetti, and the buckle and ribbon are from stash

Hope many of you will join us at Mo's this week; plenty of gorgeous images are waiting for us to play with, so let's hope for a crafty 2013 and healthy as well to be able to enjoy them!
Big hugs to each one of you!

Anything Goes at Mo's and Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, sweet fellow crafters! Hope from the heart it will be happy, healthy and prosperous to all of us!
I'm not yet back on the track of things, I'm not even aware how this holiday flew away and I admit I didn't make a card especially for this first challenge of the year at Mo's Digital Pencil Too:
 Luckily for me I've had several  cards done by the end of 2012 I haven't posted yet so here you go:

I've used again this gorgeous Urchin with bird by Mo Manning, of course,- an image I fell in love with and used more than once this Christmas and the papers are some stacked digital papers from Digital Scrap Boutique, I think all on sale by now. The window is cut with a Poppystamps grand arched window die and the fence is definitely Magnolia:).  I've added a mixed of Wild Orchid flowers and a wooden star I've previously painted and embellished and had the card done in quite a surprisingly short amount of time. I think I just had it all in my mind :). I've also planned adding some more white flowersoft at the bottom and around Urchin's feet but well, you just can imagine it would have looked better:)

This is it from me today, hope to be back with some new cards as soon as I have some inspiration; I admit it's been about 3 weeks since I last touched a copic and just cannot get around to put something together at the mom.
Bye bye for now! Wishing you all a wonderful week!
Big hugs,
