Light - a layout by Riikka

Hi there and happy December! It's the middle of the winter and I'm sharing a layout with flowers with you... maybe a bit off the season, but the inspiration for the blooms came from the cute bear stamp by Pink and Main which I used as an embellishment in my page. And maybe it's good to think about the summer, blooms and warm weather when it's dark and gloomy outside! 

The page is about light, more specifically light at the end of the tunnel. It's quite the same with winter, in a way. Through the rough patch and into the light! And as it's almost Holiday season, I didn't want to do and show anything too heavy or hard, just something light and nice to do between chores of getting ready for Christmas!
As always, I took step by step photos along the way when working with the layout. Underneath you can see how the page came together! 

Step 1. Start by making a resist to the background. I stamped some text in there using two stamp sets, "Big Words" and…

Christmas Card - Video Tutorial by Susanne

Hi there!

I have a Christmas card tutorial for you today! I used Distress Inks, a lot of embossing and glitter!

The lovely Poinsettia and the background snowflakes are stamps from Rubber Dance. I used a Sizzix (Tim Holtz) from Sizzix and the Sizzix Greenery dies to embellish the card.

Enjoy the video:






Thank you for stopping by today!
I wish you a wonderful week!
xx Susanne.

Let it snow...

This is my last DT member realisation for WOW. It was a hard decision for me to leave the DT and I'll miss it. I am very thankful for having been part of this adventure. Marion has a fabulous team which will keep on inspiring and challenging us all. My project today is a card with my favorite colors for the season: mint and gold.
I adhered paper and added stamping using WOW Hears and Twine stamps.
I melted WOW Neptune embossing powder and cut 2 snowflakes with a die.

Self-made "enamel dots" are easy to make. I melted WOW gold pearl, vanilla white and Melt-it powder in a foil case. Be careful it is very hot !!! and let some drops fall on a plastic sheet. You may also let your drops fall directly on your project. 
Thank you for your visit. I hope you will join our current challenge.


I'm sure you'll all join me in saying a great big THANK YOU to Laurence for all her gorgeous projects and hard work, we're really going to miss you. Here's the fab products Laurence…

White on white - a sparkling card by Riikka

Heippa everyone! It's Riikka here today with a sparkling Christmas card. Well, you can so this kind of card otherwise, too, but I was thinking about snow and ice when I crafted this card. 
I enjoy all the seasons and have said frequently that I wouldn't cope without the drastic change of the seasons we experience here in Finland. During the summer time the sun doesn't set at all but naturally this means that during winter the sun doesn't rise at all. Even though I love the bright summer nights and the warmth then, my favorite season is winter. Unfortunately nowadays usually the winter isn't the kind I love - with snow and chilly temperatures, but more often slush and rain. But this card reminds me of those icy, chilly winters I love. Glistening snow and frost like diamonds!

I used a few different glistening and sparkling products in my make. There's foil, embossing glitter and Sparkles, too. If you want to know, how I made the card, please see the step by step…

Hello craft friends I hope you’re all well and looking forward to the festive season. It’s always nice to squeeze in another Christmas creation and I really enjoyed making this bauble card for this month’s DT inspiration.

I started by die-cutting a circle of white card which I then stamped a sentiment on and used the Wall Art Stamp around the edges. I inked over the stamped areas then embossed the card with Regular Clear Gloss embossing powder. While the powder was still warm I sprinkled Your Carriage Awaits Sparkles over the stamped areas then heated again with the heat tool.

I die-cut the reindeer and triple embossed them with two layers of Champers Embossing Powder and a light dusting of Metallic Gold Rich.

I then die-cut stars, stamped with the Starburst stamp then embossed with White Pearl Embossing Powder. I then sprinkled Bridal Sparkles on top while it was still warm and melted again with a heat tool.



After layering up all the elements I added some gems and dome stickers for …
