Alex Syberia Designs You Are Loved Release Blog Hop & Giveaway

Hi Crafty friends!

Today I’m excited to be hopping along with  Alex Syberia Designs to celebrate the October "You Are Loved " release. It’s another really good one. I have a project to share with you.

Giveaway info:

Alex Syberia Designs is giving away a £85 ($100) gift certificate to 1 lucky winner and a £15 ($18) gift card to 5 winners. 

Open internationally. All 6 winners will be drawn from the entrants that have played along with this Blog hop by midnight BST October 22nd, 2023. Winners will be announced on the Alex Syberia Designs blog 'Giveaway Winners' page on October 23rd, 2023.

For my project, I used the leaves from the Chic Roses Layering Die Set, and I inked them in a darker green color to create some contrast. "Smile" is a new large die. I cut it out from blue paper and added white highlights with a pen. The background is the Trendy pattern stencil that I blended in various shades of blue. I love how this card turned out. So simple and masculine, right?!

The next person is the amazing Erica

Alex Syberia Designs One-Year Anniversary Release Blog Hop | Giveaway | Over £800 ($1000) in prizes

Hi Crafty friends!  Today I’m excited to be hopping along with  Alex Syberia Designs  to celebrate the one-year Anniversry! I'm so amazed with this release and I think you will bee too. Today I share a project that I created using the  Cheerful Panda Moments.  I stamped the pandas and quickly colored them with a C1 Copic marker to add some dimension to the white areas. This is truly such an easy image to color. I cut everything out using the cordinating dies.  To create a scene for the pictures, I colored a rectangle with pink and light orange colors. I used foam tape to raise the images from the background. I really love cards like this. This card was given to my daughter's friend Signe on her 6th birthday. It's so much fun to give away something that both I and Felicia enjoyed creating. If you want to take a closer look at all the other products released today from Alex Sybiria, I have a video on that. Hope you like it. Giveaway info: To celebrate their birthday, Alex Sy

Welcome to a fun Collab Hop with Picket Fence Studios and Pear Blossom Press! As you hop along with us, we hope you’ll be inspired to recreate some of these beautiful cards, all featuring your favorite stamps and dies from Picket Fence Studios, and lights from Pear Blossom Press. Get ready for lots of bright ideas, and be sure to comment as you hop along, for your chance to win a $25 store credit!  For my card, I used the RIP Slim Line Die Cutting System Insert from Picket Fence Studios. The sentiment is from the ' Cat Plays Fiddle to the Silver Moon .' To create the glowing effect, I used ONE LIGHT hidden behind the opening. To achieve a nice Halloween color, I colored with Copic markers on vellum. You can see in the first picture below how the card looks before I adhered the panel to the card base. This is such an easy technique to do and always gives a wow effect! To make the lamp light up, I use foam strips to add some dimension. And to let the recipient know that the car
