Flamingo Holiday tags!

2016-12-13 12:02 | 0 kommentarer


I wanted to make some non traditional Holiday tags, and I came up with these!

I love pink and flamingos, and just added a red Santa hat for him and a red flower behind the ear (!) for her!


The flamingo set is "Flamingo together" from Lawn Fawn.


I heat embossed the sentiment (says merry Christmas and Happy New Year in Swedish), to get a shiny finish. Added some distress ink, tumbled glass, over the sentiment to get some depth and background. 


To finish the tags I added a red ribbon to each of them!


Thanks for visiting, have a great day!



Cute match boxes!

2016-12-08 22:49 | 0 kommentarer


I have a thing for decorating match boxes! I always have a cute match box on my mantel, ready for burning candles and lighting a fire!


These match box toppers are really tiny! Only about 4,5 x 9 cm, but that is the challenge, to make the images come alive on these tiny little pieces of paper!


They are perect as small gifts!


Hedgehog stamps from My Favorite Things, the penguins are from Mama Elephant and the cute kittens are from Paperie Ink. Background coloring made using Distress Inks and the images are colored with Copic markers.


These two are gift wrapped in clear cellophan!


Thanks for visiting, have a great day!



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 | 0 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 | 0 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!



Day 1 of the 30 Day Coloring Challenge!

2016-11-01 20:12 | 0 kommentarer


Today is November 1st and the start of a new 30 Day Coloring Challenge hosted by the amazing Kathy! I am prepared with some new stamps ready to ink up!


I am so happy I finally got to add these little cuties to my supply! Instant love the first time I laid my eyes on them!


This stamp set "Meow + You" is from Paperie Ink! Seven different kittens plus some extras including the sweetest mice!


Colored with Copic markers, the tag die is from Bo Bunny "Nested Terrific Tag Dies" set. The sentiment stamp (meaning thank you) is from an older stamp set from Reprint.


Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!



Mypop on Etsy!

2016-10-25 23:09 | 0 kommentarer


As from Wednesday of last week you can find my cards and tags on Etsy! Head over to Etsy and search mypieceofpaper. Or click on the link here! I ship world wide!


In my shop you´ll find lots of different cards and tags, cute, fun, whimsical, fancy and elegant. But sometimes cute and whimsical are not what you are looking for, for a special occasion that calls for something a little more elegant and CAS as these Feather note cards.


For these elegant note cards I have used a Next Generation embossing folder from We R Memory keepers and a beautiful feather stamp from Clearly Besotted.


I heat embossed the feather, and made these note cards in a variety of colors like bright pink, silver, gold, aqua and black. 


Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!



Over the hill at 50!

2016-10-17 23:17 | 0 kommentarer


This is a birthday card, a custom order I made a few weeks back! I usually do not want to publish a post about a card that I know has not yet been given to its recipient, I prefer to wait until I know it has been delivered! 


The requests for this card; this particular stamp, pastel colors and name and year on the front of the card.


This is an older stamp, which I go back to again and again as it is very versatile. It´s from the á la Mode collection by My Favorite Things. I like to apply a coat of Glossy accents to the glass to make it look like glass! The letters are from the "Moxie" alpabeth by QuicKutz, I like the size of the letters as they are fairly small and often fits on a 6x6" card as long as the words aren´t too long!


To get the letters to be positioned straight I put the letters on my desk, the way I want them to show on the card and then put a strip of low tack adhesive tape to the front of them. ( You have to act quick as you don´t want any of the letters to move around!) Then I  apply glue to the back of the letters and position them onto the card and carefully peel of the tape.


I love the soft colors and pattern of this patterned paper and it is so much fun to use the paper piecing technique as here on the dress! This is my take on a CAS kind of card, not too busy but with lots of details! Not much coloring on this one as I didn´t need to color the dress, but where I did color I used Copic markers, and I outlined the image with dots of different shades of grey and pink for a softer look!


Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!



Welcome-baby cards!

2016-10-12 11:51 | 0 kommentarer


I totally forgot to share some sweet baby cards I made a while ago. It was a custom order for two baby cards, no special requests, other then two different cards! I decided to go with my old bunny and bear stamps from C.C Design, I use to reach for them when making this kind of cards, as they are so sweet with their little angel wings!


I made them colorful, not specific boy-ish or girl-ish, just happy colors!


I also put a couple of balloons on both cards, added a thick coat of Glossy accents for a shiny look!


All images are colored with Copic markers and Wink of Stella on their wings.


The stitched border die is from Mama Elephant from the "Landscape trio" set. The pennants are from the stamp set "Soiree" also from Mama Elephant!


Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!



Freshly made hedgehog card!

2016-10-03 17:53 | 1 kommentarer


With only a few hours to go before the challenge closes I submit my card to this week´s (or last week´s?!) Freshly Made Sketches Challenge no 256!

With this sketch (above) to follow I just knew I had to put this little hedgehog on the card!


On a frosty, cold December night he is standing in the snow, wearing his warm and cozy scarf, looking up at the twinkling stars!


This is one of the cutest hedgehogs ever! Love this stamp set "Happy Hedgehogs" from Birdie Brown and My Favorite Things!


This is my first card (out of five) using this stamp set! Background is colored with Distress inks from Ranger and the stars are made by heat embossing, using the "Confetti" stencil from Heidi Swapp. For the snowy slope I used a stiched border die from the "Landscape trio" set, from Mama Elephant!


Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!



The rule of five!

2016-10-03 12:51 | 0 kommentarer


I have a new rule in my craft room! Inspired by Anna and her CASometry Challenge. My new rule is to make five different cards when getting a new stamp set! I really like that rule, to challenge oneself to use the different stamps in a set. Usually I use one or two of the stamps, because I like them the best. But it´s only fair to give the others a try too, right?!


In my last post you can see my first card, made using this totally adorable stamp set "Woodland Wonders" from Avery Elle.      !!!
Above are all five of them, plus three tags in the upper right hand side corner!


For this card (above) I used the Happy Birthday sentiment from the "Big greetings" set also from Avery Elle.


I love that the banner comes with four different coordinating sentiment stamps to chose from. Happy wishes, thank you, oh happy day and sending hugs! They are perfect for a lot of different kind of cards!


The owl is my favorite in this set, and I think the tree is super cute!


For the card above I have used the "Geometric grid" stencil from My Favorite Things for the background, with Distress ink from Ranger. 


The Woodland critters are soooo cute I had to make some tags also. They are perfect as small thank you notes. The tag die I have used is from the set "Nested terrific tag dies" (a six piece set) from Bo Bunny.


All images are colored with Copic markers.


Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
