It has been a while since I participated in a challenge,
the other day I came across the Card Concept Challenge,
and this is my first time submitting!

I am joining The Card Concept #89 {Spring has Sprung} Challenge!!! 
Above is the inspiration photo, below is my card!


For this card I have used Uptown Girl "Reilly" from Stampingbella.
It is the only stamp I own with a chair!


Image is colored with Copic markers and the circle
background is colored with Distress Ink Tumbled Glass.

Uptown girl "Bianca has a big cake" from Stampingbella
is the perfect lady for birthday greetings!


Why? This stamp is good size and not busy with too many details!


First card using this stamp for my new card size!


Colored with Copic markers, black ink used is Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.


Thank you so much for stopping by today!



Cat & fish!

2018-03-23 10:56 | 0 kommentarer


I adore these cute Basik & Co kittens from ScrapBerry´s!  
Just look at his little face!


When planning this card I immediately knew
I had to let the fish hang from a line!

I even think the fish are adorable, all different patterns and looks!
I let one of them fell down into the puddle of water!


I chose to color the images in quite muted colors, green, aqua and grey.


I drew the puddle of water free hand, all images were colored with Copic markers.


This card is now listed in my Etsy shop.


Thank you for stopping by!



Hello there!

This card makes me feel like spring is finally on its way!

I used Miss March, one of the Thoroughly modern Misses, 
a digi stamp from Lily of The Valley, for this card


 Instead of the leather pants I colored for my last Miss March card I
decided that she´ll wear a pair of jeans this time, a pink cardigan
with white polka dots and a grey top with red hearts!


It was so much fun coloring her outfit, it always reminds 
me of the paper dolls I played with when I was little!


I colored Miss March with Copic markers, the dots were made using a 
white gel pen and the background was colored with Distress inks!


Thank you for stopping by today! 


Little ballerinas!

How adorable are these little ballerinas?!!!
They are so much fun to color, with lots of skin, hair and a pretty dress! 


And a great thing...this is a free digi stamp from All Dressed Up!


The polka dots on the tutus are made using a white gel pen.
My white gel pens dont´t seem to last very long, they tend to dry out
in no time. I always have to have a spare pen just in case...

I think polka dots make everything prettier!


Images and backgrounds are colored with Copic markers.


As you may notice looking a little closer I did color the backgrounds a 
little different from each other, but using the same markers. 
I used B 00-01-02 for the outline and C01-03 , for the ground.


Thank you for stopping by today!


Happy Birthday Cats!

Today I have two birthday cards to share!
Made using the same stamps from Basik & Co,
but the layout, design and colors differs a little. 


I like black details and on this first card I added a thin
strip of black cardstock in between the image and the dotted paper.


 I matted it on a turqouise piece of
cardstock, to go with the outlines of the images! 


 I added a thick layer of Stickles to the frosting of the cake. 


On this card I matted the image and striped patterned paper
on black cardstock, and then on turquoise! 


On this card I colored the cake pink, and added some Stickles!

I adore these cats and I love the cherry on top of the cake!


All images are colored with Copic markers,
the sentiments on both cards are from the
"Many Everyday Messages" set from Hero Arts.


Thank you so much for stopping by today!


Hello, city girl!

2018-03-05 12:58 | 0 kommentarer


 I have been making 14 x 14 cm (5.5" x 5.5") size cards with very
few exceptions for the last 10 years. (And mini cards of course!)

Now I have started making cards in for me a new size!  
I have purchased beautiful colorful enevelopes from MFT
to fit my "new" cards!

I love my square cards and I will of course alter between these sizes,
but right now it feels so different and fun making cards
in 10.5 x 13.5 cm (4 3/8" x 5 3/4") size!


This pretty lady is a digi stamp from Lily of The Valley, Miss March.
I colored the brick wall using the "Small brick wall" stencil from MFT
with Distress Ink, Picked Raspberry which I faded out to white on the cardstock.

The brick wall was a perfect match to her outfit!
First I tried her standing on a green grassy field with a clear
blue sky behind but felt she was more of a city girl and
that she needed a more city like background!


A new to me card size, first time coloring pants with a
leather look and her cardigan and first time coloring leopard print!


Miss March is colored with Copic markers!


Copics used for the pants: R 22-27-59, C7 and a white pencil for the highlights.


Thank you for stopping by!


Tag dies!

2018-03-01 17:12 | 0 kommentarer


Today I share which dies I use for my tags.


This was the first tag die I purchased, even though it looks quite
big in the photo it is pretty small, it measures 4.75 x 8.25 cm,
(3 1/4 x 1 4/5 inch).

Below is a tag made with that "Embellished tag" from Mama Elephant.


 Next is a set called "Terrific tag" from Bo Bunny,
 a set of six dies, all the same shape, in six different sizes.


So far I have only been using the two larger ones.
What I like most about it is the size of the largest one, as it
measures 7 x 11 cm (2.75 x 4.25 inch), the second largest
measures 5,75 x 9.25 cm ( 2.2 x 3.6 inch)

Below is a tag made using the largest die from the set.


I adore the next set, "Decorative Tag set" from Gina K
as it has these stitches along the edges and that it
comes in four different sizes and shapes.

I have only been using the two larger ones as
the smaller have been too small for my projects.


The largest measures  5.75 x 10 cm (2.5 x 4 inch) 
and the second largest measures 4.25 x 8 cm (1.625 x 3.125 inch).

Below is a tag made using the largest die... 


...and below is a tag made using the second largest.


The last set on my list is my latest purchase and I  
feel like I have my need of tag dies covered for now!

This fantastic set "Tag along die collection" is from Clearly Besotted Stamps.
At first glance I felt that it was a bit pricey, but I soon decided that I "needed" it!

When I received it I quickly realized that it is amazing!
This is a 10 piece set and the possibilities are almost endless!


The tags are good size, 6 x 10 cm ( 2.3 x 3.93 inch), three
different shapes, all of them with stiched edges.
You can also die cut stitched rectangles, squares, a heart and and even a bow!

And the coolest thing about this set... you can use the tag just as it is
or alter the lower part die cutting a fish tale or a curve!!!
It required a little measuring before I got it right, but the result is the coolest!!!

When realizing all the possibilities that comes with this
die set it don´t seem pricey anymore!

Below is a tag made using the fish tail and the heart shaped die...


And below are the three different shapes from this fabulous die set!




(All images were colored with Copic markers.)
