Alice in Wonderland Trifold card and Bullet Journal

A while ago I've been given a set of blank cards with openings such as oval, circle and a window. I thought that putting three together  these would be perfect to feature my new Alice in 'Giogioland' stencils:
From the colourful tea pot pours a rainbow, of course
How lovely is this Alice through the window :
The teapot and cups are coloured with Distress Inks, to make the rainbow I glued glitter to a piece of shaped acetate.
I used the larger version of this stencil to embellish the January page in my Bullet Journal:

VideoTutorial: Alice in Wonderland Altered Book and new stencils

Hello and welcome back to this crowded week, this time I introduce the new 'Alice in Giogioland' set of stencil. I've always have a soft spot for Alice and its crazy characters (and the movie!), so I really enjoyed designing and using these stencils. I created several cards and I altered an old book. In this post and video I show you the whole process with some bumps along the road (if you are curious, watch the video :-))

Cats and details (never forget the importance of little details)
A secret drawer!!
A mirror behind Alice...
And of course nothing less than glitter from a teapot

These Alice new stencils are available in my Etsy shop in two different sizes along with 5 more brand new designs:

Tutorial Shadow Box 'Sing!' with Visible Image

Hello everyone! Today I show you how to make a 3D wooden card that can be used as home decor... Well, I mean, take a box without a lid and you are sort of ready ;-)
I used a striking, energetic stamp set 'Sing' by Visible Image and lot of gilding flakes, I thing the result is quite dazzling!
Tutorial:
Cut to size a piece of black cardstock, to fit in the bottom of the shadow box and sponge with gilding glue through the stencil Strobes
Pour a pretty amount of gilding flakes
And brush the excess out with a soft brush
Stamp on white cardstock the lady from the set 'Sing' by Visible Image 
Stamp and emboss in gold the sentiment from the same stamp set
Paint with black acrylic paint or gesso the wooden box and adhere all the elements

Video Tutorial: Hello Sunshine Gilded Card and new Stencil

Happy 2020 everyone!! Be filled with health, creativity and a bit of luck :-)
First post of the year, first video tutorial and first new stencil: in mid January I'm going to release 6 new designs and this is a preview and one of them. This design is inspired by the talented and sweet Susanna: I asked her if there was a  stencil that would like to have and she send me her sun tattoo design, from then I designed this 'Hello Sunshine' stencil, that I really-really like it!

The embossed sentiment:
I used the same stencil to alter a book cover: here I used embossing paste and mica powders. I think this book cover is 'slightly' inspired by the latest Netflix series 'The Witcher', well, I got hooked and now I'm reading the third book of the saga, totally in love.
And least but not last a sunny, summerish, bright giant tag, with a gel printed background:
