Belated birthday wishes!

2020-03-19 14:02 | 0 kommentarer


Today´s card is a belated birthday card!

I used "Curvy girl eats cake" from Stampingbella,
she is perfect for birthday cards, belated or not!


I used watercolor paper and Nuvo Shimmer powders for this
background panel. Colors Cherry bomb and Blue Blitz.
This time I used the smooching technique. I sprayed water on a
crafting mat, dusted on some shimmer powder and smooshed the
panel into it, a few times. This turned out quite pastel and soft
compared to the panel on the previous post as I used more water
on this panel. Its hard to catch the shimmer on camera and I
guess the shimmer delutes too when using more water.


The image was colored with Copic markers. I used a splash of
Stickles on the cake, for some glitter! The scallop die I used is
"Reverse stitched scallop rectangle window die", by Lawn Fawn.

Shimmer powders!

2020-03-16 15:07 | 0 kommentarer

Hi there!

When I came up with the idea for this card and design
I knew I wanted a bold background. And that was the perfect
opportunity to bring out my Nuvo Simmer powders!


The flowers are from the "Stippled flowers" set by Gina K,
the hello die is from the "Gallery frame #1 die" by Hello Bluebird.


I did a few panels before I was satisfied. I wanted sharp edges on two
sides and masked with masking tape. I will save the panels I didn´t use for later.


I sprinkled the shimmer powder on to the watercolor paper
and carefully sprayed water on it. I then let it air dry.


I used the color Atlantis Burst and I love its mix of teal, blue, green and gold!

Christmas cards for March!

2020-03-09 15:35 | 0 kommentarer


Today I share my two Christmas cards that I made for
the month of March! It feels so good adding to my stash!


For these cards I used Uptown Girl "Chrystal´s Christmas label"
by Stampingbella. I have used Chrystal only, by
simply cutting of the label. I have actually cut the rubber
in two parts, and it will be easy to put them together again
when I
want to use the label part together with Chrystal! 


I colored the images with Copic markers,
the shadows were also colored with Copics!


I heat embossed white snowflakes, on the background
panel, using the "Sowflakes" set by Avery Elle.
I then blended Distress Oxide inks Spun Sugar
and Picked Raspberry over the snowflakes.


The polaroid photo frame die is the "Photo mat",
also by Avery Elle. I adhered the photo frames to
foam dots for some dimension. A little bit of stickles
was applied to the fluffy parts of their hats and dresses! 


 Thank you for stopping by today!

Coffee & love

2020-03-06 10:48 | 0 kommentarer


I am not a coffee drinker, but I drink lots and lots
of hot tea! This cup, "Coffee & love" a digi stamp from
Graciellie Design can be both a cup of steaming hot
coffee or a warming cup of hot tea!


This pretty stamp is perfect for a just because
card or happy mail with a gift card for a cup inside!


The image was colored with Copic markers, for the
pink background panel I blended Distress Oxide inks,
Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry.

The sentiment is from the "Fancy sayings" set by Clearly Besotted.
That is such a great set, so many useful sentiments and they look
really fancy as there are two different type of fonts in each sentiment!

And they are great size, too, not to small,
just perfect! I highly recommend this set!


Thank you for stopping by today!

The Gardener!

2020-02-27 13:16 | 0 kommentarer


This card was so much fun to make!
I had this idea of a garland of flowers behind
Curvy Girl ”Gardener” from Stampingbella!


I cut a panel of Neenah Solar white to stamp my images on.
This card required a lot of masking! I made two masks
for the flower stamps, both sizes, and one mask for my
curvy girl. I started out by stamping the curvy girl,
applied the mask, to be able to stamp some flowers
behind her. I continued to stamp the flowers in a garland
shape, some behind and some in front of each other!


I colored the images with Copic markers. I often color a
blue shadow behind my colored images but this time I
decided to go with a light warm contour to make the
images pop! I grounded her using quite dark grey Copics.

I die cut a rectangle from my panel, using a stitched
rectangle die, 
I adhered the remaining ”frame” onto a piece
of cardstock 
the same size as the frame.


 I used the same stitched die to cut a piece of black fun
foam for some dimension and to get a black edge! I adhered
the fun foam to the panel using double sided tape. 

But sadly and super annoying, a few days after I had
mailed this card I discovered, when making another card that
the foam doesn´t work very well with my double sided tape
as it doesn´t hold on and started to come loose in several
places, even though I put the panels under a heavy box to
let the glue bond with the foam and the cardstock…


I adhered the large panel to a black slightly larger panel
to get a black outline matching the foam and finished
the card adhering it to my cardbase!

Next time I will use several panels for dimension 
and a pop of color to make sure it won´t come off!

Thank you for stopping by today!

Reach for the stars!

Hi there!

Love slimline card designs!
And I just love the "Balloon bunch buddies", by
Clearly Besotted! And they make the perfect match!


They are the cutest bunch of critters and it
makes me happy just looking at them!


This little gang is flying high, some are
holding on to that balloon string, some are
tied to it with knots and bows!


The images and the shading were colored with
Copic markers, the sentiment comes with the stamp set!


I applied some Wink of Stella to the
balloon and glued a few wooden stars to the
panel, to go with the sentiment! 


I often find it hard to find matching envelopes for
my slimline cards, so I decided to make one myself.
It was quite easy, but for this card I needed to use two
A4 size papers and that complicated things a bit!
I will make another slimline card, slightly smaller and
make an envelope using only one A4 size
paper and do a tutorial on that!

Thank you for stopping by today!

Winter wishes!

2020-02-18 15:44 | 0 kommentarer


One of my goals for 2020 is to make Christmas cards 
throughout the year, well January to September that is, as 
I usually start working on my Christmas cards in October.

Today I share the two cards I made for February!


 The wreath is a digi stamp, "Winter wishes" from
Graciellie design! I colored it with Copi markers,
using a new to me pink color combo for the poinsettias,
RV66-55-52 and V000. Love how soft it is, just the perfect pinks!

I cut it out using my Scan n Cut, I fussy cut the inside!


 I die cut a panel using a stitched rectangle die from MFT,
blended Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet
oxide inks. After letting the panel dry I stamped the sentiment
and heat embossed it using a fine  embossing powder 
from Ranger. To finish the panel I splashed droplets of water to it!


 I assembled layers of cardstock, using white and a soft
gold, to match the heat embossed sentiment, to the
card base. I adhered the wreath to the pink panel using
foam dots for some dimension. I applied Wink of Stella
to the poinsettias for a beautiful shimmer!


The sentiment stamp is from Gummiapan, it came
with the 2019 stamp advent calender and is
unfortunately not available for purchase.

Pearls in my hair!

2020-02-11 11:37 | 0 kommentarer


I have wanted this digi stamp "Pearls in my hair",
by A day for daisies for such a long time!


 I finally bought it a while back but haven´t had the time to color
it until a few days ago! This was my second try and I realise I need to
practice shadows on the spine and the shoulder blades, other
than that I love how it turned out!


The sentiment stamp is from the "Fancy sayings" set by
Clearly Besotted, the corners and dots stamp is from the
"FaDoodles"  clear stamp set by Whimsy Stamps.


The image and the blue shadow were colored with Copic markers.


Thank you for stopping by today!

Hello crafty friends!

I have a clean and simple card to share today!
The cute bunny is from the
"McGregor´s garden" set, by Hello Bluebird.


I have colored her with Copic markers and I
applied a little Stickles to the grass!

I have used a stitched frame, the "Gallery frame #1 die",
also by Hello Bluebird, and the scallop die is the
"Reverse stitched scallop rectangle window die", by Lawn Fawn.


Thank you for stopping by!

Many everyday messages!

2020-02-03 10:05 | 1 kommentarer


I just couldn´t resist these cute critters from the 
"Love notes" set by Clearly Besotted! They will be
perfect for so many occasions and cards!


I made two cards, the green/turquoise one with birthdays
messages and the orange/red/purple one with just because,
big hugs, thinking of you messages! All sentiments are from
the "Many everyday messages" by Hero Arts.


The post-it note is from the "Sticky notes" set by
Mama Elephant. And the little "Hi" comes with Tiny Townie
"Penelope has a pencil" from Stampingbella.


I heat embossed the sentiments on my two panels,
when cooled off I blended 
Distress inks Twisted Citron,
Mowed Lawn and Peacock Feathers on one of the panels.
Spiced Marmalade, Festive Berries and Wilted Violet on the
other. I used my ink blending tool as I think they are easier to
work with when you want to blend a little more heavily.

I use my blending brushes when I want to fade the ink
seamlessly into a white cardstock.


I stamped, masked, colored the images and cut them out
with my Scan n Cut. And then adhered the post-it notes
to the panels using foam dots for some dimension! 


Thank you for stopping by!

Coffee break!

The Uptown Girls and The Curvy Girls from Stampingbella
are my favorite girls when it comes to stamping and coloring.
Love their quirky, cute looks and big hair!


Today´s card was inspired by @amyyoungforever
She often alter the Bella stamps in the most
amazing ways and a while back she used this
"Curvy girl loves coffee" on one of her amazing cards.
She had removed the sleeping mask and the clock was
replaced with a purse! Such a great idea! 


As I wanted to give this a try myself I removed (masked)
her sleeping mask and filled the emty space with strands of hair.
So happy with how that turned out!

I wasn´t too sure how to come up with a small bag, so
I just skipped it this time. And instead of her just wearing
a long shirt (for sleeping in), bare legs and socks, I CASed
Amy´s card and made it into a stylish shirt to wear with a pair
of skinny jeans and boots instead! That is so clever and
suddenly this stamp is so versatile and can be used
for so many different occasions!


The image was colored with Copic markers, the die cut
hello is from the "Gallery frame #1 die" set from Hello Bluebird.

I die cut two pieces of the hello word, placing the black 
slightly to the side as a shadow to the green piece.

Today I share a card made with a stamp I purchased a
while back but haven´t come around to use until now.
So many cute cards for cat lovers will be made using
this Curvy Girl Multitasker, from Stampingbella! 


The stamped image is quite large, so I decided to make a
bigger card, 6"x6", instead of my nowadays go-to A2 size.


To incorporate some color and pattern I die cut a circle of
patterned paper, I die cut the same size circle on my card
panel, removed the white circle and placed the patterned paper
circle there instead for a smooth, one layer card panel! 


 The image was colored with Copic markers, for the black polka
dots I used a black gel pen. I cut the image out with my Scan n Cut, and then
 adhered it to the card panel with foam dots for some dimension.

Sending hugs & rainbows!

2020-01-15 22:42 | 0 kommentarer

Hello there!

Today I have not one but three cards to share! 


They were all made using the most adorable
"Balloon Bunch Buddies" set by Clearly Besotted!


As I used the "Sending hugs & rainbows" sentiment on all
of the cards, I wanted to incoorporate some kind of rainbow, 
and as all of the critters are holding on to balloons I
decided to make them my rainbow element!


Rainbow balloons three different ways! 


The images were colored with Copic markers.
I used my Scan n Cut to cut them out,
and adhered them on foam dots to the panels.


I colored the background panels with Distress inks,
blended with Taylord Expressions Blending Brushes. 


It was so easy to make a seamless blending, making the
ink fade from dark to very light and subtle on the white cardstock!
I finished the panels off by splashing some droplets of water to them! 


Thank you for stopping by!

My first 2020 Christmas cards!

2020-01-12 23:03 | 0 kommentarer


One of my goals for 2020 is to make Christmas cards
throughout the year, well January to September that is, as
I usually start working on my Christmas cards in October.


 I also decided to make two at a time, that saves me
a lot of time especially if I do a lot of masking.  
So here are my first two Christmas cards for 2020!


For these cards I have used a digi stamp from Krista Smith,
a gift from her to her e-mail news letter subscribers in December!
So very grateful for that adorable image! I colored these cuties
with Copic markers, I also added some sequins.
The sentiment banner is from Panduro.

Rainbow card!

2020-01-10 13:46 | 0 kommentarer


I´m in rainbow mode at the moment!


Using the mice from the ”It´s a mice time to celebrate”
set by 
Stacey Yacula/MTF, love this cute and happy set! 


 Making this card I did a kind of emboss/resist technique.
I stamped the images using Versa Color Black, sprinkled on
clear embossing powder and heated with my heat gun.
Once dry, I marked the center of the card vertically, I then placed a
strip of masking tape, as a divider.
I used Distress inks for
my rainbow on the right hand side of the panel!


This is such an easy and fun technique to make a colorful
card without coloring with markers or pencils!


Thank you for stopping by!
