Late congratulations with Kenny K

Hi all!

My fiance´s brother turned 40 some time ago. Of course I had to create a card for him. I wanted a woman with some heat, and what suits better than Kenny K´s images?!  There is a lot of my favorite things on this card, such as steampunk. And the design paper, it is BoBunny. And the lasercute chipboards comes from Make it Crafty.  Here is the card:

Happy New Year!

Hi all!

Over at the Shabby Tea Room they have a lovely challenge this week. A colorful and Shabby New Year is the name of the challenge and that is really what i wanted to do with my card. I was inspired by the beautiful work of the DT´s creations and the colorful picture. :)

The template I have used is from Magnolia Ink Magazine number 4, 2010. The big beautiful pink rose was brought to me by Santa, and is from Prisma. It was so nice to work with bright colors again.

My angel :)

Hi all!

This is a fun angel to color. Next time I will color her wings more with promarkers before i add glitter. I wanted her to be the main focus in the card. I think she is that now. :)The digital stamp is from Scrapper´s delights. Rainbow Lady has also a theme with angels.



The paper is gorgeous and is from BoBunny.




If you click the image it will take you to the challenge.

A new (for me) kind of stair step card

Hi!

I am very much into card-folding right now. And this is a different (and new, for me!) kind of stair step card. I was inspired to create this card by the two hänglar stamps on clouds. They where my main focus. I wanted them to have something to sit on! Therefore this card:


3 stamps from Hänglar & Stänglar and the sentiment is from Magnolia.
The sentiment was in the latest kit i recieved some time ago.

More traditional colors than I normaly use. :)

I would like to enter:
(most of my promarkers comes Joanna Sheen´s shop! :)  )

Christmas card for a man

Hi all! I hope you are all well in this stormy weather! At least that is how it is in Sweden today.

When I created this card, I was constantly thinking "for a man". I didn´t want it to sweet, but still a warm and cosy feeling. The image is from "the Stamping boutique".

And once again it became a easel card. :)

Stair step card! again! :)

Hi everyone!

It is fun! New foldings! So I had to do another stair step card (thank you for letting me know the english word!)

This time with a Kenny K digital freebie. This months freebie, I think.
The sentiment is written in Word and then I have cut it out with my die. :)

I have colored my image with promarkers, as usual.

One little flower is on my card, and that flower comes from WOC.

Here is my card:

My first "trappstegskort"

Hi all!

Over at Crafts and me Challenge they have this challenge called simples!

I don´t think it is easy to do a simple card!! In fact it is a real challenge!! :)

So I decided to take the step full out. I have no decoration at all! I just have design papers and digital stamps that I have colored and used only three die cuts totally. That isn´t much for being me!

The beautiful girl comes from Crafts and me.
My two sentiments comes from Marion82. Link in sidebar. Thank you!

So, when I had to keep it simple, I wanted to try a new fold. I have no idea what it is called in english, but in swedish we say "trappstegskort". A easy one of these, said the tutorial i read. It was fun to try a new folding!! I read about it here! Thank you!

Lizzie from Make it Crafty

Hi all!

Today I just wanted to share a colored digital stamp with you. I realize my choise of colors is quite often...not the normal colors. I think I am gonne try and be a bite more traditional, if I can. :) Because I love to create cards with other colors, but I don´t like to give them away, then I want more traditional cards.....

But this digital image is not colored in traditional colors again. Isn´t she sweet? She takes a long time to color, because of the many many places for shades, which makes her sooo fun to color!!


I am gonne make a card of her. I had a picture in my head, but I didn´t finish it last night, which means I have forgot how I was thinking. So now I will see if i can create something nice of her anyway. Will look for some inspiration in challenges and see if I can come up with something. :)

Have a nice sunday!

Card after a sketch

Hi all!

Today i have crafted a card after a sketch!
It was a fun and beautiful sketch!

I chose to do a christmas card. This is starting to feel good, all the cards I have already crafted!
I have a snowflake and vintage corner on this card. I don´t think they is easy to spot in the picture, looks more in RL...

This is one of my oldest stamps, was so fun to get it inked and colored again! And fun to see my coloring has improved since last time! :)

Santa Claus is coming to town!

Hi all!

Yes, Christmas is coming closer and closer! Don´t mean to scare you, but I think I will mostly focus on Christmas challenges for a while so i get some cards done in time! (well, I have to do other things too, otherwise it will be boring, right?)

And in my family Santa is a girl. Guess who dresses out to Santa? And my daughter told me the second she saw me - Mummy-Santa!!! She was only two years old, and I was vering a big mask. There is no way I could foul my daughter. :)

I think one could say I like easel cards! LOL!
I think they add something extra. :)

The beautiful big roses are from WOC. One red and one orange, love them!
I have colored with my promarkers, as usual. :)
And I have used a Magnolia stamp.

One thing I wanted to try out with this card was if there was possible to do a Christmas card in warm colors. Therefore i started out with orange as a base for my red. Normaly i start with pink.

Updated*
This is a photo i took today, outside, it is more true to the colors the card actually have! The photography of the card is very important!!




I have made this card for tree challenges:

Have a nice day!

Masking rubber stamp and digital stamp

Hi!

I did it! I managed to merge a rubber stamp and a digital stamp! It was some job, i can tell you, but it worked!

The rubber stamp is from Magnolia and is from the latest release. The digital stamp is from Make it Crafty and is the background.

I combined two challenges. The challenge over at Make it Crafty is to add some texture. I wanted my Thilda to have cotton clothes on her, so i used a cotton stick to soften out the dots i created with promarkers and my blender. And over at Allsorts Challenge they wanted us to do Christmas easel card. Fun combination!

Kenny K

Hi!

Today i have created a card for Kenny K´s challenge - get dotty!

I used this cute mouse which is October freebie from Kenny K. Isn´t he cute?
The sentiment is from one of my favorite sentiment digi designers, Marion82. Here is her website: Marion82 

I have used this lovely cardstock from Inkido with dots. I have also added flowers, glitter, a charm from Kattiz which say "kram", that means hug, in swedish. A diecut from Cuttlebug and some halfpearls from Panduro. I have teared some stripes in different shades of pink and added for more layers.

The sun is shining in Sweden today! It is a lovely autumn day!

So I took 2 pictures of my card, since the sun is standing low now, it is difficult to take a picture without shadows.

To Cynthia and Geoff: Happy Anniversary!

Can you see?

Tonight i wanted to try something. I used the same promarkers on the same image, but on different papers. How much does the paper play the role? Well, i have to say, when coloring on cheap paper from the grosery store (where we buy our food) or Letraset´s own paper ....It is a differense!


Which image is colored on the expensive paper? The right or the left? :)


It is dark outside now, so i had to take the picture indoors. For a card, that also makes a differense. If i can get daylight or not. 

Yes, left paper is from Letraset. It feelt so smooth and nice to color on. And the color didn´t bleed much. Me like!

Good night!

Pink - for breast cancer awareness

Hi again!

Two cards in one day! (This card I started yesterday) This is a very special card for me. I just had to create a card for this challenge. My mother died two years ago in breast cancer. This card is for her and all the women who is struggling against cancer. I was a little sad when creating this card, but enjoyed creating it anyway.
I just had to do it!

I have an album I am doing layouts with picture of my mother. It isn´t going fast, since it is still painful. But time really heals and I want to finish it later this year. It is for my daughter. They only got one year togheter, but it was an important year.

For breast cancer awareness:

Halloween

Hi!

Today me and E have a day off! So we have been crafting! :)

I have created a halloween card. I like this stamp with the woman! It is from Sweet Pea stamps.
The sentiment is one of my favorite halloween stamps also, and is from ArtiCrafts. The designer is Rebecca Swayzee and the link i should use when using this stamp is: visualdesignbychris.com

The weather is really grey and cold here in Sweden. Brrr! The picture might therefore see a little "greyish" out! But at least i managed to take this picture while it is still some light out.

Three challenges in one card!

This is a different christmas card. It is almost monocromatic, I just added some blue details. I have colored with my new promarkers called Ice Grey number 1-5. (I only had warm grey before these arrived, so it was fun to try them out properly)

I have used cardstock from DCWV, and two different handmade papers for layers. I have punched out the stars and then added glitter. I have added pearls from my blue pearl maker.

The stamp is from Magnolia, from the last kit that arrived some time ago. The flowers are from Prima (the big one) and from the blog candy i won from Kattiz.

Card for Sweet Pea Stampers

Finally my card for Sweet Pea Stampers is finished! It took me a couple of days to create. For once did I both sides at the same time. Usually i do not the inside of the card until it is ready to be given too someone.

I took 3 photos, the card looks better in real life...


This is the front.


The sentiment is inside the card.
It is embossed and then i used ink.

I love the cardstock! It is from Prima Marketing Inc and from the Fairy Flora Collection.

Layout!

Finally I got an ideá how to do a layout of this old photo of E and J. It is one of my daughters favorite photos, so I wanted a good layout. I have been out of ideas, but now with autumn and Rainbow Lady´s Challenge with falling leaves, it finally came to place!

 I don´t have much different leaves so I drow them myself. I just have one kind of bought leaves, and I didn´t want them on this layout. I used a boarder punch from Ek Success. The half pearls is from Panduro. And I used 2 different alphabet stickers. The 2 green flowers are punched out from Nellie Snellens punch. The ribbon is brand new, arrived yesterday from Joanna Sheen.

The sun is shining here in Sweden today! And here is my LO:

New Magnolia stamp :)

Today i got to use my favorite combination, what a nice challenge! An easel card was some time ago since i last created, so that was the kind of card i choise. I think it is time to try some new folding so i will look around after fun foldings later. :)

Anyway, as you can see my favorite color combintions is brown and purple. They must also be my favorite colors seperately. When i look at my cards, many are made in brown or purple. I added some yellow just to light the card up. I don´t have to do dark cards even tho autumn is making our days darker. :)

I think the new Magnolia stamps are sooo cute! This is one of them:

Rainbow Lady´s challenge

This week over at Rainbow Lady´s Challenge we are doing Autumn/Fall flowers. For me fall is brown and wine red. Orange and perhaps some green could have been other colors i think fit but i didn´t want to much things on my card, so I was satisfied with only a couple of flowers and some leafs.

I used acetat on my card, therefore i had to have my camera in a different angle, not to get the reflection. I used acetat as a window on my card, even tho there was no real window. Next time i think i will do a shaker card with acetat.

The Shabby Tea Room - Chevrons

Hi!

I have learned a new word! Chevrons! I had to google it and also look at the DT projects at The Shabby Tea Room. But i think i understood what it was at last, so i added it in the shape of a ribbon. I chose green as my main color, it is a lovely color that i dont use that very often. The same goes for blue. They are so lovely, but tend to fall out of my mind when making cards.

This time i have used a stamp that was one of my first purchases. I don´t know who has designed it, but I like it! I used 2 different spellbinder dies, the paper is from a serie, I don´t know the name, but the green in the scalloped oval is the opposite (same colors, same pattern, but opposite place)  to the paper I used as base.

I love my pearl maker. I wish I had more colors.

Christmas card again! :)

Again, i did a Christmas card! It will be so good when Christmas approaching and I already have some finished cards to send out.

This challenge over at Rainbow Lady´s Challenge they want us to use "White space".
I think cards become very elegant with white space, so this beautiful pyragmages that i recieved from Cynthia fits perfect i think! I think they are called pyramages or maybe decopage, i havent understood the differense between these two words yet.

*Edited: It was decopage, this. Cynthia told me in a message, thank you for taking the time to explain. :)
