Video Collaboration with Pia - Sparkle and Shine

Hello Everyone!

Today I have something special planned for you. Today is the day when we share our first part of our collaboration with Pia from Pia's Creative World

Back in the summer we started talking and planning that this kind of collaboration would be a lot fun - it's like crafting together and finishing up card together although we are living (and crafting) in different countries. In this first part, I made some individual stuff and sent them to Pia and she finished up the card. 

Firstly, if you don't know Pia already - you should! She is so sweet and kind, always happy to help and she happens to have such a creative mind and very talented hands. I find that the name of her blog is just Genius and sums up everything so well! Her style is different from mine  - and I just love that - and that makes this collaboration so interesting. I love her CAS style combined sort of graphic style in card making but still she has a lot of clever and neat ideas that just leave me speechless - oh, I-never-thought-of-doing-that-like-that -kind of way. She has a Youtube channel where she shares some of her work and ideas and if you haven't subscribed, please do so! She speaks such a fluent English and her videos are very easy to follow. If you are interested in new techniques, then her channel is one that you must follow. :)

So here's the card that we've made together:

You can see how we made this card in video tutorial that we made together. You can watch it here or in HD in YouTube.

Supplies that I used:
Stamps: Joe the Skating Snowman from Purple Onion Designs, To the Moon by Altenew.
Dies: Tiny Pine Trees by Marianne Designs
Inks: Versafine Onyx Black, SSS Smoke Ink, Fairy Dust and Falling Star Pure Color Ink by Wplus9.
Paper: Canson Watercolour Paper 220gms, Neenah Solar White Smooth Card Stock, SSS Slate Card Stock
Derwent Inktense and Metallic Pencils

Hopefully you found this fun and entertaining. We surely had fun doing this and we both learnt so much in the process. Thank you for stopping by today and see you real soon!
