Birthday card!

I have used a stamp from MiC. The orange rose and the pin is both from WOC. I wanted to do a sparkling card  with some late summer feeling. Is summer really over? Summer is my favorite time! So this yellow cardstock with stars (star is WOC theme this week) was exactly what i wanted. Paper Sundaes have the challenge Anything goes, which makes it really easy!

The Shabby Tea Room - Chevrons


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. :)

My card is here:

I used 3d cushion (hm...might not be the right word...) to really get the 3d effect.

Less is More

I saw that "Less is More" wanted to reach 1000 cards in their challenge, so ofcourse i wanted to help them in their quest. :) I saw this a little to late, so i can only create one card. I am not used to do clean and simple cards, so this was a fun challenge.

Vintage and Felt!

Oh how i love to combine 2 challenges and see if they fit! I think these 2 did just that. :)

The Shabby Tea Room have a challenge called Vintage White, but we could also do a card monocromatic and use brown, which i did. I used Tim Holtz stamp, I think I haven´t used it before, but my memory often fails me, so maybe I have...But so fun to do vintage! Me like!

Paper Sundaes have a challenge where we should use felt. And i have had some felt flowers for some time now, and didn´t know when to use those. Oh well, i still have some left, so have to go and look for more challenge later on! :) At least 2 came to use!

I have used: stamp from TH. Dies from Martha Stewart, Magnolia and Cheery Lynn Designs. Distress ink - brushed corduroy. Cardstock from DCWV. Pearls from Panduro.

Thank you for fun challenges!

Christmas card with sweets! :)

I have not made many christmas cards, but i take all the challenges i can find! It is so good to have some cards already made long time in advance! Rainbow Lady´s Challenge blog have that we should add christmas sweets. I had this digi image, that i had forgot when i started to search in my digi section! It was a freebie from Bugaboo Digi stamps, some time ago. Then i found this great sketch from WOC to help me with the layout! :)
The white flower and the corner are both from WOC.

The image was bigger than my biggest oval die, so i had to cut out the feets before cuting out the image.

Scrapper´s Delights!

I find new cool places all the time! My latest finding is Scrapper´s Delights. They had this girl that fit perfect in my layout about Emma who wants to go to school. It is a little early since she is only (in the picture) 2 years old. If you have red my blog before you know she turned 3 years old a little time ago. :)

Here is my layout:

This was my best photo of my layout.

And at Scrapper´s delight they wanted us to also post a picture of the prize.

Sweet Pea Stampers - Favourite colours


Purple is one of my absolute favourite colours! And i love to add black and also some grey.
I had to figure out what this girl could say, and i am not sure it is proper english to say " The most beautiful thing i know is you". I don´t think you could be a thing...but i like the way it sounded, so i chose those words. :)
I have used Word to write it out. Pearls, glitter (ofcourse! can´t live without it!) and flowers are also favorite things. This is my card! :)

Bildmålarnas challenge 7

Bildmålarna challenge 7 is this card made too. I used my brand new spellbinder dies! I wanted to make a medium blue card, not light and elegant, nor dark and beautiful. No i wanted a more playful card. This is my result:

It feels good to make christmas cards now. It will not be stressful later!

For my friends at Svensk Scrapbooking :)

This is my first attempt to color a whole image in grey! And i havn´t got cold ice grey yet, so i had to use my warm grey. It really give the image a whole different caracter to color in warm grey than in cold grey. It is fun to see how different they can be. Over at Svensk Scrapbooking they have colored some images in cold grey and i feel those images looks...younger. My image feels older. If you are a member off the page I am refering too, you can head over there and look in the thread called "Promarkers - Tipstråden". This is something i will do more off, it was fun!

The image is a freebie from Make it Crafty.

The 2 dies i have used are both brand new, and arrived at my home from Joanna Sheen´s yesterday.

Trying to improve my coloring!

This was a serious try to improve my coloring of this mushroom stamp, that i love. I have once before colored it with purple, and now when Make it Colorful came with this challenge where we should color with purple, i felt i had the chance to do another coloring of the same stamp, to see what/if i could improve.

This is my new card:

and so you can easily compare I gonne add my old coloring and card in this post too:

I think my coloring was better this latest time i colored it. And i "know" the stamp more now. 

I am not sure which layout of the card i like the most, maybe my old card looks a little better?

It was fun to do this challenge, often one "move on" to fast. It is rare i do the same stamp again, with the SAME colors. Now I felt i really had the chance to improve! :)

A card with the same colors that i am wearing! :)

Oh, i have the same color on my cloths as my card is in! Hehe!

This was a fun card to do! (Ar´nt they all?) I used my new "Pyramage - Red hearts" that was the prize from Sweet Pea Stampers for my sexy card! :) I didn´t know what pyramage was until yesterday! I love to play with new things! This is like ... a 3 D puzzle with the picutres. The images is already colored (good since i used 6 of them!!) I added some glitter to the pyramage since i wanted a "magical birthday wish", and i think magic is sparkling, don´t you?

It was a little hard to get the right balance in the card with the 3 D picture, but after i went away from the card it all fell on it´s right places when i returned.  I changed image and decorations (yes, i changed almost everything!) and voila: here it is:
