Poinsettia tags and cards!

2016-11-28 18:54 | 0 kommentarer

I like it when an image is stamped slightly off the piece of card stock. And that was the technique I was practicing when making these Holiday tags! The die is from Bo Bunny, and the "Nested terrific tag die" set.


The poinsettia stamp is from the "Holiday Favorites" set from Stampendous, I have had it for years and seldom use it. But when making these tags and cards this poinsettia was perfect as it is rather small in size.


To get more interest and detail I drew framing lines around the sentiment, which says Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year in Swedish.


The poinsettias are colored with Copic markers and I like the contrast with the pinks, turquoises and the dirty cool grey tones!


Making the cards required a little bit of masking and I let the petals go ouside of the white card stock.


On the cards I drew framing lines around the greetings and sentiments.


For the sentiments on the cards I used two different stamps from the "Christmas Wishes" set, from Stampendous. A set with four different beautiful sentiment stamps.  


Thanks for visiting, have a great day!


Christmas Cat Tags!

2016-11-23 19:14 | 2 kommentarer


I am about to send Happy mail to my dearest friend! I will be sending these Christmas tags for her to use on some of her Christmas gifts!


Super easy tags to make and I am so pleased with how they turned out, love the dramatic color combination of black and red together with the cute kittens!


I have been playing with kittens both from the "BB Cool cat" set, from My favorite Things and the "Kittens" set from Paperie Ink.


The brick wall is made using the "Small brick wall" stencil, from My Favorite Things, white ink and a sponge dauber! I used the "Pure white" pigment ink from Avery Elle,as it dries slowly I heat set it with my heat gun.


The Merry Christmas sentiment, is from the "On thin ice" set from Clearly Besotted, the paw print is from the "Puppie" set  from Paperie Ink. The kittens were stamped, colored, fussy cut and glued onto the tags. The accessories, like the hats and scarves I have "borrowed" from other stamps! The tag die is from Bo Bunny, love the soft, rounded shape of it! 


All images are colored using Copic markers.


Thanks for visiting, have a great day!



Penguins and frosty snow flakes!

2016-11-18 23:23 | 0 kommentarer


Today I share my card from yesterday´s coloring for the Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge!
I posted a little peek of it on Instagram, and here is the full card!


Nowadays I use much less patterned papers than I use to do, but I still love to buy those 6x6 pads just because the papers are so pretty! I find that I often use narrow strips, just to get a splash of color, therefor my pads last way much longer than they used to! 


One of Kristina Werner´s card was my inspiration when making this card. She used snow flake dies, to cut the masking paper. As I don´t have any snow flake dies I used snow flake punches instead, the result was about the same, but Kristinas dies were more intricate and very beautiful, and my snow flakes are just, well, more regular ones!


 I positioned my masking paper snow flakes and then blended Distress Inks for the sky. When done, I removed the masking paper and there were my snow flakes embedded in the Distress Ink sky!


This could have been a one-layer card if I had taken the time to stamp the hats first, but that  would have taken forever to finish this card! So they were stamped separately , fussy cut and glued on to the penguins! I also wanted them to skate on an icy pond, made using Copic marker BG10 and Glossy accents! To finish off the card I added some Stickles to the snow flakes! The very little coloring I did on the penguins was made using Copic markers!

Reindeer down the slope!

2016-11-15 19:41 | 0 kommentarer


Day 15 already of the 30 Day Color Challenge! Today I managed both coloring and a card!
I have been so much in to pink lately, and the reindeer on today´s card wears a pink scarf and has pink skis also! And a pink Christmas tree ornament hanging from the antlers! 


The reindeer stamp is from Stämpelgården.


To make the slope and the background sky I masked the reindeer and the "slope", using stamping mask paper from Inkadinkado.
I think the masking paper is a little easier and smoother to work with compared to Post it notes that I usually use.
The best thing about masking an image and color the background is when you get to remove that masking paper!
The image that pops out from behind that masking paper usually looks a lot different than before without the background!


I used Distress Inks for the sky, I blended Tumled Glass and Broken China.


I added polka dots both to the scarf and to the skis, which I also added Glossy accents to as I thought that skis ought to be plastic and shiny!
(Right? I don´t ski myself and I just took a wild guess here!)


Thank you for stopping by! Have a great day!




Holiday tags!

2016-11-13 18:29 | 1 kommentarer


I have been making a lot of tags lately! Love the size and the simplicity of them!
Today I share a set of tags that I colored the other day for the 30 Day Color Challenge. If you follow me on Instagram you have seen a glimpse of them there already!


The stamp I have used for these tags is Uptown girl "Savannah" from Stampingbella. I kind of like  cropping an image to make it fit a small tag, the result being so different from stamping the whole image on to a card.


I always make my tags "double", that is one tag with the image and one tag where you can write your message. The main reason is that the Copic markers I use to color the images bleeds through the paper, there for the need of two layers of cardsstock! But I also really like it when you write your message separately. With Glossy accents added to the Christmas ornaments and gold glitter glue on the tree, I wanted to embellish these tags some more to make them super festive and added gold bows to the ribbons! 


Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!



Christmas pandas!

2016-11-08 22:55 | 1 kommentarer


Day 8 of the 30 Day Coloring Challenge, hosted by lovely Kathy! 
For today´s card I have played with the cutest of pandas!


These little pandas, from the "Furry Pandas" set from Paperie Ink are so adorable! The cutest ever! Very little coloring on the pandas, just two shades of grey, that´s all!


The trees and the background a little more coloring though!  For the background and snowy sky I used the "falling snow" stencil from Simon Says Stamp, some Versamark emboss ink, clear embossing powder and my heat tool for heat embossing. When dry I blended Distress inks for the background in colors tumbled glass, broken china, salty ocean and chipped saphire. I think I could have gone a little bit more dark in the upper corners and next time I will add a light touch of black soot also.


The trees are from the "On thin ice" set from Clearly Besotted. For the stiched borders ( the snowy slopes!) I used one of the dies from the "Landscape trio" die set from Mama Elephant.


All coloring on the images made using Copic markers, I added some Stickles on the trees, for some sparkle! Sentiment stamp and the hat (borrowed from one of the mice) are also from the "On thin ice" set!


Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!



Angel card!

2016-11-06 22:50 | 0 kommentarer


I never get tired of this Angel stamp, I keep using her on my Christmas cards year after year. I only change the color of her skin, her hair and her dress. The only thing I don´t change is her glittery wings! Of course she can be used for other occasions than Christmas too, but so far that is what I have done!


This beautiful angel stamp is called "Celestina Angel" from Kraftin´Kimmie Stamps. I particularly love three things about this stamp, the size, the face , and the hair! She is not too detailed wich I sometimes find hard to color when an image has too many, too small details. And she looks like she is spreading kindness and happiness!


I originally thought of a red dress for her this time, but I changed my mind to a soft green instead, to go with the red-ish color of her hair.


I colored her with Copic markers, added some Stickles to her wings to make them really glittery and sparkly! I have used a stiched die, from the die set "small stiched square stackables" from Lawn Fawn.


Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
