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!


Thank you for stopping by today!



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.

2017-05-17:8 2017-05-17:7

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.


Thank you for stopping by today!



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!

CASometry Challenge 3, stage 3!

2017-04-30 18:32 | 2 kommentarer


For the third stage of the CASometry Challenge 3, randomizer, hosted by lovely Anna, I made this card...


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


I picked the stamp set "Woodland Wonders" from Avery Elle, and decided to work with the trees and the owl for this challenge.


I stamped the owl and the trees and heat embossed them, using gold embossing powder. My idea for this card was to get a soft,golden tone as I colored the images using different soft brown Copic markers.


At first glance, looking at this card it can be hard to see it the actual embossing, but when tilting it a bit, the golden outlines shows perfectly.  


I finished the card by adding a banner (from the same stamp set) with a sending hugs sentiment, also gold embossed, colored with Copic markers!


Thank you for stopping by, have a great day!


CASometry Challenge 3, stage 2!

2017-04-23 12:00 | 3 kommentarer


This is my entry for stage 2 of the CASometry Challenge 3, Randomizer, hosted by lovely Anna!
The challenge for this week is to pick 1 random stamp set + using one stamp minimum of 3 times!


I picked the stamp set "Cool Cat" by Birdie Brown and My Favorite Things, for this week´s challenge. I choose my favorite kitten and stamped (and masked!) him five times, to get a small gang of kittens! I colored them with Copic markers.


This is actually pretty funny, as Anna´s previous CAsometry Challenge last year was all about clean and simple, I have to admit I often struggle with keeping my cards clean, simple, one layered and so on, as I feel something is missing and they don´t seem finished to me if I don´t add layers, a flower here and there, sequins etc. I guess I am not the only one, as for this challenge she pointed out "no strong style rules this time - for many of us it´s hard to make clear CAS cards. Just make what you like". And now I have managed to make the most clean & simple cards I have ever made for both stage one and two! 


Thank you for stopping by, have a lovely Sunday!



CASometry Challenge 3, stage 1!

2017-04-17 19:29 | 2 kommentarer


This is my entry for the CASometry challenge 3, randomizer, stage 1. I have been waiting for this particular challenge, hosted by the lovely Anna!


Some of the simple rules of CASometry Challenge 3. Randomizer:

  1. Pick a new random stamp set for every new task!
  2. This stamp should be the main focus of your card. But you can add any other supplies of your choice. They of course can be different from one stage to another.
  3. There will be five stages — four regular and one Secret Super-Final. Every stage will last one week. New stage will start every Thursday 7 am (Moscow time!) and inLinkz will be closed 5 minutes before the next stage starts.
  4. Every time will be another small additional task for every stage.
  5. No any other rules! No strong style rules this time — for many of us it’s hard to make clear CAS cards. Just make what you like.

This week´s theme is 1 random stamp set + any geometry shape


For stage/week 1 of this challenge I picked the "Tickle my Fancy" stamp set from Clearly Besotted. I love these gorgeous feathers. I inked them up with Distress Inks, Evergreen Bough, Hickory Smoke and Black Soot. For the geometry shape I chose a square shape. I just lightly inked the edges of my square with a mini ink blending tool, to get a soft and smooth edge. 


The sentiment stamp is also from the same stamp set. 


Thanks for visiting, have a great day!


Easter-ish Pillow Box!

2017-04-11 22:54 | 1 kommentarer


This is my first try using my new pillow box die from Lawn Fawn! This pillow box is the perfect size to fit a gift card! And so easy to use, run it through a die cutting machine and just fold and glue together.


I have used the Penny Black stamp "From the Folks" and just cut out the chickens.


I made the signage after watching Sandy Allnocks´ video about creating different kinds of signage, I can´t wait to try her other signage ideas!
This was super easy to make and so much fun!


The sky and the grass was made using Distress inks, Mowed Lawn and Tumbled Glass.


The images was colored with Copic Markers.


Thanks for visiting, have a great day!



Green & white wedding card!

2017-04-09 22:59 | 0 kommentarer


This is a custom order wedding card, and as always with special orders it makes me think outside the box.


There were a few requests, the front of the card in colors greeen & white, this particular stamp (purchased long ago and sorry but I don´t remenber the brand). Green, red and white hearts.
To make the inside of the card with yellow and black details.


As I was not going to use any patterned paper on this card, I instead used the "Geometric Grid" stencil from My Favorite Things to create some interesting details using distress ink in color Moved lawn.


The punched white flowers with green brads in their centers also added interest to this otherwise clean and simple one layer card. I always assemble the punched flowers with two sets of petals for some dimension. Some Glossy Accents were added to the small hearts!


The image was colored with Copic markers.


Thanks for visiting, have a great day!


Hello there, big hugs!

2017-04-04 19:49 | 0 kommentarer

I´m sharing a super easy and quick to make, CAS card today.


I started out by stamping the message on the center of the cardstock, using sentiments from the "Many everyday messages" set from Hero Arts. 


I then stamped the different kinds of pandas from the "Furry Panda" set from Paperie Ink, placing the stamps randomly in different directions. I finished it of with stamping small hearts here and there! I colored the pandas along the edges with Copic markers C1 and C2, just to get some shading, pale blue eyes and red hearts. A mat of red card stock framed the stamped images, which then was attached to a white card base!  


Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!


Easter-ish tags!

2017-03-27 19:39 | 0 kommentarer


Easter is just around the corner, I rarely make Easter cards, but I loved making these cute tags!


As I don´t often make Easter cards I don´t have any special Easter related stamps....


...but this Penny Black stamp "From the folks" is just perfect when in need of some cute chickens! A little bit of fussy cutting and you end up with chickens to make easter-ish tags!!


The tag die is from Mama Elephant. The grass and the sky was made using Distress inks in colors Tumbled Glass and Mowed Lawn, my go to colors for making quick and easy backgrounds.


The chickens were colored with Copic markers!


Thanks for visiting, have a great day!

Pillow box-Going places!

2017-03-20 19:25 | 0 kommentarer


Wouldn´t it be soooo much fun to get a box like this holding a car key for your birthday!

I have been playing with pillow boxes lately! I have tried different ways to decorate them, with punched flowers and brads, without punched flowers and brads, I have tried using different layers of papers but this clean and simple one works best for me, for now anyway!


For this pillow box I have used the "Pillow box punch board" from We R Memory Keepers, not sure about the measurements as I have to cut the small side flaps to fit properly. On the plus side is that you can make really small (short) or long  pillow boxes as opposed to dies that only cut one size. I am eagerly waiting for my pillow box die from Lawn Fawn to arrive in the mail any day now though.


The stamp I have used for this pillow box is from an older stamp set called "Going places" from Kraftin´Kimmie. I have colored this image with copic markers. Some Glossy Accents is added to her sun glasses, but it is really hard to tell as the photo doesn´t make justice to the stamped and colored image.


Thanks for visiting, have a great day!


Cupcakes & kittens!

2017-03-12 22:22 | 0 kommentarer


For day 7 of the Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge, hosted by Kathy Raccosin, I colored these little cupcakes, as those of you who follow me on Instagram might remeber! As I was coloring them I had this panel in mind for this card.


I added four kittens from My Favorite Things "Cool Cat" stamp set by Birdie Brown, plus an extra cupcake for each kitten! I did some masking when stamping the cupcakes and the kittens, I then fussy cut them and adhered them to the card! 


All images are colored with Copic markers. Stickles was added to each and every cupcake!


The banner is from the "Woodland Wonders" stamp set from Avery Elle. The sentiment is from the "Many Everyday Messages" stamp set from Hero Arts.


This card was inspired by Miss Ellenor!


Thanks for visiting, have a great day!
