Hello crafty friends!

The 30 Day Coloring Challenge has come to its end for
this time, and below are my tags from the last week!


Day 25, stamp: Mama Elephant


Day 26, stamp: Hello Bluebird


Day 27, stamp: Stampingbella


Day 28, stamp: Avery Elle


Day 29, stamp: Mama Elephant


Day 30, stamp: Stampingbella


All the images were colored with Copic markers
and the white dots made using a gel pen!


I have gotten lots of questions about what I`ll do with all these tags!
Some of them I will use myself, when giving gifts or flowers and some of them I will sell! 


 This challenge is hosted by the awesome Kathy, from The Daily Marker,
who puts a tremendous amount of work and commitment to make it all work. 
Not only is she commenting on so many of the Instagram posts and that
makes it extra special of course, to have been spotted by Kathy,
she is posting her own coloring projects daily,
and you can feel her heart and soul through every day of the challenge!

This was her 10th 30 Day Coloring Challenge!!!

If you haven´t particiated in this challenge before,
and are somewhat interested I suggest you give it a try next time!
You don´t have to participate each and every day, no one is keeping tracks,
you can jump in and out as you wish! 
It´s all about you carving out some much needed "me time", just to color! 


Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Mr & Mrs!

I have a wedding card I made a few weeks ago to share with you today!


This was a custom order and the promts to follow were;
"we need a wedding card pretty quickly and trust you to make a beautiful one!"


I love it when that happens! 

My immediate thoughts for this special card was this cool digi
Bride & Groom from Kenny K,
a "polaroid photo" with the happy couples names and the date
of the ceremony and this big red heart shaped brad!


The red stitched heart I have used underneath the brad is from
the die set "Tag Along Die Collection" from Clearly Besotted.

The Bride & Groom and the grass was colored with Copic markers,
the light blue outlines was made using Copics and Distress Ink Tumbled glass!
Some Clear Wink of Stella was added to the bride´s dress for shimmer!


Thank you so much for stopping by today!

I am so happy to have been able to take some "me"-time, to color every
day of the challenge so far! I enjoy coloring and finishing these little tags,
some of them takes shorter amount of time to color and some of
them takes longer, as I stamped the tags prior to the challenge start I
can pick and chose, depending of how much time I have every day.


Day 4, stamp: Mama Elephant


Day 5, stamp: Mo Manning


Day 6, stamp: Mama Elephant


Day 7, stamp: Stampingbella


Day 8, stamp: Whimsy Stamps


Day 9, stamp: Mama Elephant


Day 10, stamp: Mama Elephant


I am using Copic markers as my coloring
medium and a white gel pen for the polka dots!


Thank you for stopping by today!

After a few days delay, as I was hoping to be able to upload this
post a few days ago, here are my coloring for the first week
(three days only, Friday-Sunday)
of the Daily Marker 30 day coloring challenge!


Day 1, stamp: Kraftin´Kimmie Stamps


Day 2, stamp: Mama Elephant


Day 3, stamp: Avery Elle


I have colored these tags with my Copic markers!

Love coloring and putting these little tags together as they
are managable in size and so far it has been quite easy
to fit in 20-30 minutes of me time = for coloring on a daily basis!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Just a few days away now....

June 1st is the 10th anniversary of “The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge”,
hosted by the lovely super talented Kathy!


I have decided to color tags this time, as I did last time! I hope I will be
able to participate every one of the 30 days! Then I´ll end up with 30 new tags! Yay!


I have tried to dig out a variaty of stamps from my collection,
 I´ll be coloring Uptown Girls, bunnies, kittens, big guys grilling and other cute images! 

And as I did last time, I am going to share my colored and finished
tags at the beginning of each week. I hope you come back to view my tags! 


Can´t wait to get started, this is going to be sooo much fun!
And I am so excited to see all the beautiful colorings
from my fellow participants!! Two more sleeps...


Thank you for stopping by!



Yvonne 60!

This card is another personalized custom order!

My idea behind this card was soft muted colors and celebrating
60 with a glass of bubbly! The first stamp that came to mind
was Uptown Girls, "Victoria and Juliette" from
Stampingbella, so I altered the stamped image and used only Juliette (!?). 


According to my research in Swedish interior design trends
this season, grey is out and "greige" is in!
That was my foundation, the card base in a soft grey/beige hue.
The name and year was printed to fit the image. 


I wanted some elements to be curved as so much is rectangle
shaped and straight on this card. So this is what I did...


...I colored a piece of card stock using the same Copics as used on the dress,
punched the edges with this Fiskar´s scallop edge border punch and cut to thin strips.


 But as I didn´t wan´t the holes to show...I attached the strips
closely along the edge of the rectangle piece, close enough to cover the holes!


I looked through my stash of paper and found this beautiful flower
patterned paper that was a perfect match. 


Copics used for the dress: BG 93-96-99


Thank you for stopping by!


Fuzzy bunnies!

2018-05-19 21:43 | 0 kommentarer


Today I share some fuzzy bunnies!
The adorable bunny stamp is from the "Bunny Balloons" set from Whimsy Stamps.


I was so inspired by Sandy Allnock and her amazing coloring of
fuzzy bunnies and this is my take on the fuzzy bunny technique!


The bunnies are colored with warm grey Copic markers
and a grey pencil for the hair.

The image is stamped with grey ink to get that soft look!


I wanted to try this technique and I think the bunnies turned out
super cute but I don´t feel this is someting I´ll do very often,
as for me it was a bit time consuming drawing all these tiny hairs!

Copics used for the bunnies: W 1-2-3


Thank you for stopping by today!

Sorry for being MIA for the last week and a half, I am on vacation having no access
to my craft supplies, this card was made just before leaving!


This card was a special, custom order, a little bit of a challenge,
due to a lot of masking and fussy cutting but so much fun to make!


The prompts to follow were: colors black and yellow, cats and hearts!


I love to make these ”wooden” signs to make cards personalized!


The recipient of the card is a huge fan of the Swedish team AIK and
this little gang of cats are supporters to the team, hence
the yellow and black scarves and the hat!


The cat stamp is from the ”BB Cool Cat” set from My Favorite Things,
they were colored with Copic markers, the wooden sign was also colored
with Copic markers, the rays in the background was made using
Distress ink and the ”Sun Ray” stencil also from MFT. The scarves were
hand drawn and carefully fussy cut to fit the images!


Thank you so much for stoppning by!



Thank you Fairy card!

2018-05-02 11:17 | 0 kommentarer


For today´s card I have used yet another adorable little fairy!
These little fairies are so stinkin´ cute and they all melt my heart!


This is "Fairy and Puppy" from Whimsy Stamps.
They are so much fun to color and those wings are
perfect for adding lots of glitter!


I am still working my way through the Kit and Clowder Clothing Class,
I know I need to focus on the last few lessons and practice,
practice, practice, but I am so happy with what I have learnt so far!

A year ago I didn´t know how to color this skirt to make
it this puffy with beautiful folds and pleats.


If you feel you need to improve on your coloring skills
(both alcohol markers and colored pencils) or just want
to learn new techniques, I really recommend taking an online
class from Alyce´s Kit and Clowder, she is an
amazing teacher and sweet person!


Images are colored with Copic markers, and Stickles are added to her wings!


Thank you so much for stopping by today!



Just because!

2018-04-25 10:54 | 0 kommentarer


 Just because cards are the best! You can send it for no
special reason or occasion other than just because!

I love sending just because cards as the recipients don´t expect it!
So brighten up someone´s day by sending them a card, just because!


This is one of my favorite stamps, Uptown Girl "Bubbles",  from Stampingbella.

I think this image is perfect for a just becase card! 


Colored with Copic markers and lots of Stickles added to the bubbles!


This card is now listed in my Etsy shop!


Thank you for stopping by today!


Big Hugs Bunny!

2018-04-20 14:27 | 0 kommentarer


This little bunny melts my heart!
I love the new "Bunny Balloons" set from Whimsy Stamps!


I have colored the bunny using warm greys instead of
the cold greys I usually reach for when coloring anything grey.
I really like the softness of the warm tones!


The fluffy cloud is made using the cloud die from the
"Landscape Trio" set from Mama Elephant.
The edges are lightly colored with Distress Ink, Tumbled Glass.


And of course I couldn´t resist adding polka dots
with a white gel pen to the balloons!

The big hugs sentiment is from the
"Many Everyday Messages" set from Hero Arts.

The Copics used for the bunny W 01-02-03.


Thank you for stopping by!


Spring Birthday Girl!

2018-04-18 22:25 | 0 kommentarer


Today I share another birthday card made using Uptown Girl
"Brittany the birthday girl" from Stampingbella! 


I had to try my brand new Copic markers on the dress! 

This blue-ish/green combo is so beautiful and soft and it gave
the dress a feeling of spring, like faded denim! I added lots and lots
of clear Spectrum noir, to get a beautiful shimmer on the dress!


These very simple flowers, attached to the panel with brads are
made using punches. I usually just punch out two layers and very
carefully curl the top layer petals.

On this card I punched out two layers of paper for each flower,
the bottom petals in black cardstock and the upper ones in patterned paper,
I then glued two petals together to get more sturdy flowers. 

I am so pleased with how it turned out, and I like the fact that
you just get a glimpse of the black bottom petals! 


I always attach the inside panels last one the cards I am sending and
write my greetings on it before attaching it to the card,
if I mess it up in some way, its easy to just cut new panels!

Copics used for the dress: B 12-24-28, G 00-02-17


Thank you for stopping by today!



Personalized Stamps!

2018-04-15 18:08 | 0 kommentarer


I have wanted a new personalized stamp for the back of
my cards for so long, but couldn´t decide how I wanted it to look...
The only thing I was sure about was that I wanted my blog name on it.
I went back and forth whether to add my name and my Instagram name or not...


At last I decided to go with my name, my blog name, blog adress
and Instagram name and I am sooo happy with how it turned out!


I love the scripty font on "my piece of paper" and that the rest is strict!
So happy with it that I had to get matching adress stamps for my envelopes too!


I ordered my custom stamps from the
Swedish company Rox Stamps.

The customer service is excellent, Anna-Lena was so quick to
respond to all my questions and requests by e-mail!
You can order directly from the web site if you are a customer
from Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland or Åland.

Customers from other countries, please contact Anna-Lena by e-mail! www.roxstamps.se 


As my street adress contains letters that are not common in
every language, like the Swedish letter ä, I ordered two stamps
for the envelopes, one for the cards I send to Swedish recipients and
one without the dots with just an a, for recipients in other countries,
and on that one I added Sweden as well!


You have a choice of getting your stamp made of rubber or
photopolymer (it looks like a clear stamp but needs to be mounted
to ez mount to be able to attach to an acrylic block).
The stamps I ordered are made of rubber.

The orders for the rubber stamp option are placed with the
manufacturer around the 30th of the month.

When ordering a custom stamp ask for a proof,
and it goes without saying that it is super important to spell check
the proof as this is a personalized item which can´t be returned or refunded. 


Thanks for stopping by!
