Flower girl, thank-you card!

2017-05-28 20:05 | 0 kommentarer


This is actually a thank-you card. I wanted a clean and simple layout, but a card with many details! But not too busy! Crazy, huh?! Soooo.... this is what I came up with!


Stamp used is Uptown Girl "Pippa loves to plant", from Stampingbella. Colored with Copic markers, and a white gel pen for the polka dots.


I added strips of polka dot paper on both sides of the image, a white frame was cut out and to that I added a lot of glitter!


I used flower punches to make the flowers, and I added shiny, fuchsia colored brads to the centers of the petals.


I like at least two layers of petals, for dimension and for color. I carefully curl the upper petal so that you can see the the one beneath. I also like the petals to be of different colors and patterns.


Thank you for stopping by today!

Mini cards!

2017-05-25 11:52 | 0 kommentarer


I have been making some mini cards! The size is 9x9 cm, I think that is a really good size of a smaller card, as it isn´t too small. Perfect to have some on hand, so I usually keep a small stash! 


I like them colorful! I have chosen not to stamp any sentiments on these, as I like them to be neutral, for any occasion that may occur.


Hedgehog stamps are from My Favorite Things, the "BB Happy Hedgehogs set".


The tree stamp and the flower is from Reprint and the cat is from Tiddly Inks.


I have struggled a bit when coloring these hedgehogs, but finally I am pretty happy with the colors I used this time! Copics used are E43-44-50-59 and RV 10 for the cheeks.


The kitten is from the stamp set "BB Cool Cat", also from My Favorite Things. The cake is from the Stampingbella stamp " Bianca has a big cake", as I just needed the cake I cropped the large cake and used a smaller piece of it!


The images are colored with Copic markers and the backgrounds are colored with Distress Inks.
I have added glitter along the edges, on the icing on the cake and cupcakes, the flowers and the sun!

Scan N Cut!

2017-05-17 18:58 | 1 kommentarer


My husband surprised me with the best birthday gift ever, a Scan N Cut from Brothers. I am soooo happy! I mentioned the Scan N Cut to him and discussed the different models available on the market weeks in advance to my birthday, but my intention was to purchase one myself!

What made me interested in the Scan N Cut to begin with, when reading about it online, and reading reviews is that it seems so easy to use. I am a somewhat technical person, but I want the scan and cut process to be quick and easy. This machine does not need to be hooked up to a computer, you just plug it in and go!

What I also like about it is that you can chose to cut directly along the stamped outline or have it cut 1 mm outside the outlines, leaving a white edge around the image. I guess that it can cut out small intricate parts anywhere in the stamped image too, but for now I am grateful for it to cut the outlines only!


There are different models on the market, depending on where you live. Mine is a Swedish, European model CM900, if you live in Sweden you can find it here.

Below follows a super quick guide, roughly going through the steps I take when cutting out a stamped image!


Make sure the space behind the machine is clear as when the machine scans, the mat goes all the way through the machine, so make sure there is nothing in its way!


Place your stamped piece of cardstock on the mat, and load the mat.


Scan the image.

Chose if you want your image to be cut along the outlines or 1 mm outside the outlines.


Cut the image.


Unload the mat and carefully remove the images with the spatula.


The Scan N Cut cuts images out in seconds! Yay!!!


There are saving data options, for now I don´t save, but I do think that it is a great option.

I have just started using this cool machine and I am sure it has so many advanced cleaver features. But I am, for now, only interested in the scan and cut function. No more fussy cutting, I am in love with it already!


Thank you for stopping by today!



CASometry Challenge 3, final stage!

2017-05-16 21:52 | 2 kommentarer


As the last stage of the CASometry Challenge 3, randomizer came closer I was wondering what the last and secret final stage of the challenge would be! In last year´s challenge we used the same stamp set for all the five stages and for this challenge I thought we were using yet another stamp set...but to my surprise this was not the rule this time...


  1. For this stage you have to use the same supplies you used for making one of your cards for CASometry. So just look at your cards you made for four previous stages and pick one of them and use the same supplies you used there.
  2. We are talking only about: stamp sets, dies (both coordinating and stand alone), stencils and embossing folders. They have too be the same and you need to use ALL of them. Thus, you can not remove anything from the supplies you used, and add nothing.
  3. BUT! You can use any additional embellishments and techniques you want and any coloring mediums! This is up to you!


I finally decided to go with the cat card I made for stage 2. For this week´s card I used three of the cats from the " BB Cool Cat" stamp set from My Favorite Things, instead of one.


I have to confess I did try it out and stamped the kittens on a scrap piece of paper before I started to work on the actual card!


I did a lot of masking on this card and when taking a closer look I may think some of the cats should have been placed in front of another. But I was so happy when I was finished coloring all of the cats and pretty happy with how it turned out! The cats are colored with Copic markers.


Stage 1, one random stamp set + any geometry shape!


Stage 2, one random stamp set + using one stamp minimum 3 times!


Stage 3, one random stamp set + embossing!


Stage 4, one random stamp set + friendship!


Stage 5, use the same supplies used for making one of the previous cards!

The CASometry Challenge is over for this time. As always, Anna really is making me think outside the box and sometimes I have to take small steps outside of my comfort zone as she twist every new stage with different themes or/and rules for her challenges. 


Thank you for stopping by today!


CASometry Challenge 3, stage 4!

2017-05-09 19:15 | 1 kommentarer


It´s already stage four of the CASometry Challenge 3, randomizer, hosted by lovely Anna!
This is my entry for stage 4!


The challenge for this week is to pick 1 random stamp set + friendship.


My pick for stage 4 is the "Doctor´s Helpers" stamp set from Create a Smile Stamps, and I chose to let these little foxes represent the "friendship", along with the sentiment "Let me know if you need something"!


The background is created with Distress Inks which I drippled some drops of water onto! I fussy cut the foxes holding the band aid and adhered them with foam dots for some dimension. The foxes and the band aid are colored with Copic markers.

Cat tags, with lots of hearts and big hugs!

2017-05-04 22:32 | 0 kommentarer


I have been busy making tags, tags with a lot of love, a lot of hearts and "big hugs"!
Cats, cats, cats and a few mice as well!


The stamps I have used making these tags are from Paperie Ink as well as My Favorite Things.
I have used my two favorite kittens from both stamp sets!


I have colored them using about five different color combinations, (with Copic markers), so they wouldn´t look too much alike! At the back of the tags I have glued card stock in a variety of different colors, to get a bright, cheerful mix, with plenty of room to write a personal message!


Below is my favorite color combo for fur, for this little guy! I tried it on the sleppy one too but I couldn´t make it work.


I have added a small heart, to his chest for some more cuteness and a little more love!


I use these stamps all the time, for different projects, I never get tired of them!
The tag die is from Bo Bunny and the "Terrific tag" set.


Thank you for stopping by today and big hugs!
