5000 subscribers card for PaperMona / Creative Stamping 118

Happy Monday!
I hope you have a great day!

Today, I have a very special personalised card. A friend of mine PaperMona recently reached 5000 subscribers on her YouTube channel and I made a card to celebrate this achievement. I used a free gift from Creative Stamping magazine issue 118 'Wings & Things'. It is a stunning stamp set collection, perfect to immerse yourself into the world of colouring. The floral butterfly is just perfect and I had to use it for the focal element on my card.

Diamond Stepper Card - The Great Gatsby collection #relativelythoughtful

Happy Thursday!

I hope you have a fabulous day!

Hi, all crafters, it's Monika with another inspiration using 'The Great Gatsby' collection.

I created a diamond stepper card using the design papers and elements from this gorgeous collection. As this set has Art Deco vibes, I just had to use geometric shapes to make sure that they are the main focal element of the design. Using symmetry and straight lines allows you to create unusual designs, and I encourage you to have a play with this fabulous collection.

Happy crafting!

How To Make Masculine Valentine's Card Polkadoodles DT #polkadoodles

Happy Saturday!
Hi all crafters. 

It's Monika here with a super cute Valentine's card.
Not every Valentine's card has to be pink and red, right? That's why I decided to experiment with colours and I made my Valentine's card blue, I simply could not resist. That super adorable bunny from 'Love You This Much' is just perfect for quick and unique Valentine's projects. For the background, I used a cutting die from my stash and the design paper from 'Just lovely - Honeypie ...'collection. If you are looking for amazing sentiments, check 'Just lovely - 31 greetings' bundle, it is a fabulous collection perfect for a variety of projects.

Have you started your Valentine's cards this year?

Art Deco Cascading Card The Great Gatsby collection #relativelythoughtful

Happy Thursday!

Hi all crafters! 

It's Monika with another shaped card. I decided to use The Great Gatsby collection to create a cascading card this time. 
It is a fun fold-shaped card, and as it has some shapes and diagonal lines already in style, I decided to play with the design paper in the Art Deco style. As you know, Art Deco is all about shapes and geometry, and symmetry is a key feature as well; therefore cascading card is just a perfect choice. As you probably know, shapes and shaped cards are my favourite elements in cardmaking and "The Great Gatsby" collection is perfect for having fun with symmetry and geometric patterns.
What's your favourite art style?".

Thanks for fluttering by!
