Today I am sharing three vibrant floral cards featuring a digital lily stamp from a new-to-me designer called Alex Syberia Designs. I recently discovered her creations on Instagram and I purchased a few images through her Etsy store. I created all three of these cards using the same lily stamp, but it's amazing how different they look simply by alternating the color combinations for each card!
About Alex Syberia Designs:
Hello, I am Alexandra but on the Internet I am also known as Alex Syberia. The name Alex Syberia (not Siberia) is actually a nickname. My nickname‘s story began many years ago when I decided to create a special project for my friend and I had to attach my logo tag. In the past, one of my hobbies was playing computer games and one of my favorite games was ‘Syberia’. It’s a story about a young New York lawyer, is dispatched to deal with the sale of a former automaton factory hidden in Western Europe. She never thought that this task, as simple as it seemed, would change her life forever… an extraordinary journey that takes her all the way from Western Europe to the far reaches of Eastern Russia… and Syberia is a mythical island somewhere in Russia… I was very inspired by this game and decided to take “Alex Syberia” as my nickname.
That story is something that’s very close to me because card making is changed my life!
I love art, design, traveling, and I like to read detective stories,too. The art of creating has always amazed me that’s the reason why I absolutely love to create things. I believe that a handmade gift is far more appreciated than something bought at a store. Whenever you create something, you want it to be totally unique and one of a kind. I always loved handmade and crafty things and tried all kinds of hobbies from jewelry making to bookbinding until I’ve discovered and felt in love with the beautiful world of card making.
In card making I try different styles and my own style continues to develop. I love using bright and bold colors because they enhance your happy emotions for the day! I adore floral designs, watercolors and Copic markers. My passion for this hobby has been growing so much. That’s why in July 2018 I started this blog as a place to share my creations.
I hope that my projects can bring joy and inspire others in their creativity. I am very active on Instagram so be sure to follow me there for the latest updates.
Be creative and don’t forget to dream! Happy crafting and have fun!

Hello readers and welcome back from the weekend! I hope you found a little time to do something crafty. Today I am sharing another card that I made for the Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge #124. This week we have a theme challenge to inspire you. Our challenges run for two weeks, thereby giving you more time to create, so I have designed a second card to share with you this week that was still inspired by the same image seen below:
Here is the card I created inspired by the floral theme:
This slimline card measures 8 1/2" x 3 1/2". Slimline cards are designed to fit inside a regular #10 business sized envelope and do not require additional postage. The base of this slimline card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. Using the Slimline Scallop Oval die from Whimsy Stamps, I cut the frame from Blueberry Bushel cardstock. I mounted blue gingham paper behind the oval squares of the frame. Using a grassy border die, I cut a piece of lime green cardstock and adhered it to the bottom of the card to give my images a grounding point. I heat embossed the sentiment using white embossing powder in the center of the grass. I stamped the images from the Newton's Nook Designs Garden Mice stamp set in Memento Tuxedo black ink on white cardstock. I colored the images with Copic markers and die cut them using the coordinating Garden Mice dies. I adhered the mice images to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension. Lastly, I added a coat of Clear Wink of Stella to the mice for added sparkle.
