30 Day Coloring Challenge of 2019, #1!

2019-01-31 22:29 | 0 kommentarer

Hi there!

  Its time for me to color some tags!

Tomorrow starts another 30 day coloring challenge,
hosted by Kathy! This time the challenge runs
from Feb 1-28 but will still be called the
30 Day Coloring Challenge, even if its just 28 days!  


 THE GOAL OF THE CHALLENGE is to color something daily,
even if it’s a few minutes, but certainly not required.
It’s an ‘anything goes’ challenge; color whatever you feel
inspired to do. Some days you will have more time than
others but, it’s just about adding more time to color
and carve out a little time for you!

If you want to participate you can jump in at any time
during the challenge. If you miss a few days don’t
feel like you have to catch up. 

You can read more about this fun challenge on Kathy´s blog!


 I have die cut and stamped the tags ahead of time,
for the convenience for me to just pick and chose,
depending on how much time I have to color each day!

This time I will be using the ”Tag along die collection”
from Clearly Besotted. It is one of my favorite tag die sets,
a little pricey was my first thought when ordering it,
but so worth every cent, I quickly realized once I started using it!


 This is a ten piece set, which includes three tag dies, one
bow, two edges, three shapes and one hole reinforcer. 

 My ambition is to share the tags I colored from the
previous week, on Monday (Tuesday the latest) of every
week of the challenge here on the blog.

On Instagram I will post one tag every day of the challenge!


Thanks for stopping by!

Sending love!

 Have you ever seen a cuter bunny, riding
a scooter, delivering Valentine cards?


 This super adorable bunny is from the ”Sending love 2019”
digi stamp set now available from Isabel Cristina on Etsy!
The ”Sending love 2019” set includes several images and sentiments!


 After downloading my image I resized it to fit my card and
then printed it out! I colored the image with Copic markers,
fussy cut it, ready to be adhered to the background once finished.


 For the background I blended Distress inks, Spun Sugar
and Picked Raspberry. I covered my background with a
heart stencil and applied yet another, heavier layer of Picked Raspberry
for the hearts to show. I then splashed some droplets of
water to finish off my background! 


 I adhered the bunny to my background, I applied
a thick coat of Glossy Accents to the scooter, for a metal finish!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!


Clean & simple flower card!

2019-01-27 22:18 | 0 kommentarer

Hi there!

Some occasions requires a clean and simple flower card! 


I really need to make a few more to have
on hand for occasions when a cute critter card won´t do!


This beautiful lily stamp is from the Mini
stamp set "Thank you friend", from Gina K.
It was colored with Copic markers.


 I think this dark pink/orange color combo is
perfect for both masculine and feminine cards!


The sentiment stamp is from Gummiapan.


Thank you so much for stopping by today!




Lovable Bears!

2019-01-23 23:41 | 0 kommentarer



 For today´s card I have used one of the cute bears from
the "Lovable bears" digi stamp set from Isabel Cristina,
now available in her Etsy shop

image 0

Her digi stamp sets are really value for money
as they include several images and sentiments!

I have used the bear at the top on the left
hand side of the sheet for this card.


I decided to use an image only, no sentiment,
therefore I chose the bear to be quite large in size. 


I colored the bear with Copic markers, the background was
colored with Distress Inks and droplets of water when finished! 


For lots of shimmer on the heart,
I applied Wink of Stella, the colorless one! 


Thank you for stopping by today!


Star Fairy!

2019-01-20 19:03 | 0 kommentarer


My mission for 2019 will be to continue to make cards
and tags using lots of colors. This card was made
using different shades of blue/turquoise/teal.


I wanted this card to have some kind of dimension,
so I put a small piece of a cloud in front of her feet!


I used the adorable "Star Fairy" Digi Stamp,
from Little Blue Button Stamps.


I colored her with Copic markers, added lots of
glitter to her wings to make them sparkle! I also added
some Stickles along the edges of the clouds!


Thank you for stopping by!



Friendly Floral Tag!

2019-01-17 23:09 | 0 kommentarer


Today I share a tag made using one of the
prettiest flower stamps sets I know!


It is the "Friendly Florals" set by Neat & Tangled.
This is my first time inking them up and coloring them,
I went for pink markers, apparently my go-to, safe bet color! 


I love how they look like cherry blossoms!
I colored the images and the shadows with Copic markers.

The sentiment is from the "Brushed Wishes" set
by Stampendous and the tag die is from the
"Tag Along Die Collection" set by Clearly Besotted.


Thanks for stopping by today!



Unicorn Card!

2019-01-12 18:31 | 0 kommentarer

Hi there!

Happy to share my very first card as a
Design Team member for Isabel Cristina

These adorable digi stamps are from the "Unicorn Birthday" set,
head over to her Etsy shop for purchase!


This was my very first experience coloring a unicorn,
I have to admit I had to do some research before I
decided to go for a colorful mane!

I thought I share a quick, very basic guide on how I
layered the unicorn and the cake images.
As I don´t have Photoshop, I work in Word on my PC.


First I marked, not open my inicorn image, I actually
chose the JPG format not the PNG as the picture shows.
I then copied and pasted the image in a Word document.


Mark the image to crop it, then you´ll be able to resize it smaller
or larger more easily. I then did the same steps with my cake image.


To be able to move the image around to where you
want it, chose option #2 on the Layout options tab.


Next step is to remove the image´s background, mark the
image you want to the remove the background from, under Picture Tools
on the Format tab in the adjust group click "remove background".
The bright pink color shows what areas that will be removed. 


Sometimes you have to add areas you want to remove,
click the "mark areas to include" option and mark the
areas on the image with the little pencil marker on the screen.


When the backgrounds are removed you can layer
the images, mark the image you want to place in front
by chosing the "send to front" option. When happy
with the placements of your chosen images, print them out!


So much fun to layer the images, it´s kind of like masking but easier!


I colored my images with Copic Markers.
As the sentiment says "Hope your day is filled with Unicorns
and glitters" I just had to add lots of glitter!


Thank you so much for stopping by!


Yay- Happy Birthday!

2019-01-06 21:20 | 0 kommentarer


I have a lot of family and friend´s
birthdays coming up this time of year.


For this birthday card I used the bunny and two
of the word banners from the "Party Pals" set from Avery Elle!


The background was colored with Distress
Inks and droplets of water. I used a white
gel pen for the polka dots on the letters!


Images were colored with Copic markers!

Thank you for stopping by today!



Happy New Year & Uptown Girls!

2018-12-31 17:50 | 0 kommentarer

Hi there!

Sharing my last card of 2018 and
wishing you all a Happy New Year!


A while ago I saw an amazing card made by
she had stamped and masked six different ladies!
I had to try that myself using some of my
Uptown Girls from Stampingbella!


I stamped my Uptown Girls on printer paper and
cut them out, not careful at all, I just needed the images so that
I would know where to place each image.
When happy with their placement I took a piece of
scotch tape, and taped them together to keep them in place! 

I then numbered each image to remember
in which order to stamp them.


Stamp, mask, repeat!


Images were colored with Copic markers!


It took me a while to color, but
so happy with how they turned out!


Happy New Year!


Kimono Girl!

2018-12-29 18:44 | 0 kommentarer


This is my second and last card as Guest Designer for
the Little Blue Button Stamps for the month of December!


For today´s card I have colored the cutest little Geisha, “Kimono Girl”.


My idea for this card was lots of color!
I colored the image with Copic markers and outlined it with
a grey shadow but wanted to add something more to the background.


But nothing too busy to take away the focus from
the Geisha. I decided to add some multi
colored stripes, to match the color of her kimono.


I used the “Watercolor stripes” stencil from Altenew
and colored the stripes with Distress inks.


To match my image, I colored a piece of card stock with
Distress inks, the same colors I used for my stripes,
as a background, which I attached to the card base.


I am so happy for the opportunity to have been Guest Designer
with the Little Blue Button Stamps, thanks for having me Olga!

Copics used for her hair: N6, N8, 100, BV004

Copics used for her skin: E00, E04, E11, E21

Copics used for her kimono: RV06, RV17, RV19, R29, YR04, Y17, Y15

Last Christmas Cards for 2018!

2018-12-23 22:28 | 0 kommentarer

Hi there!

Today I share my last Christmas cards for 2018! 


I love this adorable  "Winter Wear", stamp set from Concord and 9th!
I had so much fun playing with it and coloring it!


I colored the images with Copic markers.


The backgrounds were also so much fun to make! It took me a
while as there were quite a few steps to follow before they were
done, but I love how they turned out! 


I heat embossed the snow flakes, from the "Snow Flakes" set from
Avery Elle, on a piece of white card stock, using three different 
embossing powders. Turquoise, silver and gun metal for these
teal/green cards. I then went over them with Distress Inks.


White, gold and pink embossing powders were used on this pink card!


Red, gold and gun metal embossing powders were used on these red cards!

These red cards was the first ones I made using this stamp set. 


I was inspired by @nicholspohr for the backgrounds,
as her beautiful red and green snow flake cards just blew me away!


Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Merry Christmas!


Zodiac Girl Leo!

2018-12-22 00:10 | 0 kommentarer

Hello there!

For today´s Christmas cards I have used non Christmas
stamps to create Christmas like/feel scenes. 


I was so inspired by Amy Young and her incredible work, using
"Uptown Zodiac Girl Leo", from Stampingbella,
where she masked of Leo´s lion ears.
I loved that idea and the furry coat!


The house stamp, is from the "Cottage Home" set from
The Waltzing Mouse Stamps.
I have had it for years but haven´t used it in a very long time,
I thought they would make a great combo!


Of course I had to let Miss Leo have a pink coat and pink boots!
I love how it turned out, and hope the recipient of the card loves it as much!


I also used the "Leo" stamp making A2 size cards,
I colored the coats in greys and browns, the tree is from the
"On thin ice" set from Clearly Besotted.


Backgrounds on all of the cards were colored using Distress inks, 
I colored the images with Copic markers.


The Merry Christmas sentiment is from the "On thin ice" set.
The God Jul sentiment is from Gummiapan. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today!


Christmas is coming!

2018-12-19 22:49 | 0 kommentarer


I have made so many different Christmas cards this year! 
I did a lot of masking on many of them, and I almost always
stamp at least two of the same as it often is quite time
consuming with the masking, figuring out where to put
the different images and in which order.  


Couldn´t have managed without my Misti!


One of the most adorable stamp sets this season is from Hello Bluebird!
Super cute critters and lovely sentiments from the "Christmas is coming" set!


I colored the images and snowy ground with Copic markers!


Thank you for stopping by today!


Holiday Girl!

2018-12-14 21:35 | 0 kommentarer

Hi there!

I am so excited to be Guest Designer with
Little Blue Button Stamps for the month of December,
thanks for having me Olga!


My first project is a card where I have used the
"Mix Media Holiday Girl" digital stamp.

I love digi stamps as you can change the size of the image
to fit your project! I chose this lovely stamp as one of my
favorite things to color is skin and hair! 


My first idea for this card was to give her a bright red top
and a red scarf to make her ready for Christmas! 

I started coloring her hair in a brown, red-ish tone and when I was finished,
I reconsidered the bright red top and went for a more neutral one instead! 


To give my card a sense of warmth I chose kraft cardstock instead
of white. I used Copic markers to color the image!

Copics used for her hair: E09, E15, E97
Copics used for her skin: E00, E04, E11, E21
Copics used for her top: W1, W2, W3, W5, W7
Image: Little Blue Button Stamps: Mix Media Holiday Girl
Sentiment stamp: Brushed Wishes from Stampendous

 Little Blue Button Stamps has so many adorable
digital images, to choose from, for all occasions!

Rooftop Reindeer!

2018-12-10 19:22 | 0 kommentarer


How adorable are these reindeer?!!! Nostalgia sweeps over me!


For these cards I have used stamps from two different brands!


The reindeer are from the "Rooftop reindeer" set, from Hello Bluebird,
and the tree is from the "Cozy Christmas" set from Mama Elephant!


All images and background were colored with Copic markers!


Of course I had to color the tree on one of the cards pink!
I added lots of glitter to the trees, in lack of ornaments!


I can´t decide which tree I like better....
the green one is beautiful but the pink one turned out pretty awesome!


Thank you so much for stopping by today!
