Until we meet again

Hi!

For Tickled Pink Stamps last challenge I wanted to do something more than just a normal card. I wanted a new folding. So when I found All That Scraps Blog and their challenge it was perfect! They had great links to get us started and I found the link with "Gate fold card" and was inspired to create a card. I also wanted it brighter and less colors than normal, just white and blue for this one.  Paper Sundaes have circles this time, I just love circles and dots!

Bye bye Tickled Pinks Challenge Blog! I am gonne miss your challenges, I really enjoyed them and looking at your fabolous design teams work!


And the inside looks like this:




It took some time to create this card because of all the different layers that I chalked that had to get dry.

I got an award today

Hi!

Regan gave me an award today! Thank you sweetie!


And this I have copied from her blogg:

Liebster is German for "dearest" or "beloved", but it can also mean "favorite". This award is bestowed on blogs with under 200 followers to show appreciation and spread readership and happiness.

To accept the award you must do the following:
1) Link back to the person's blog who gave it to you, and thank them
2) Post the award on your blog
3) Give the award to five other bloggers who you appreciate and enjoy
4) Leave a comment on those five blogs to let them know they've been chosen

It is difficult to chose 5 out of all the talented ladies all over the world. There is two ladies that I came to think of; Majsan and Linda, but it feels strange to give it to them since I got it from them first (last time). So here is 5 that I enjoy visiting in the wonderful world of cardmaking/scrapbooking:

Sara (Sarham`s little corner)
Ulrika (Hemma hos Ulrika)
Kattiz (Kattiz Scrapp)
Anneli (Anneliscrapkort)
Willea (Willea scrappar mest hela dagen)

You are all very talented and I always enjoy see what your last creation was!! Sometimes I don´t have time to leave a comment, but here I have a chance to tell you how much I appriciate you and your work! 

Hugs Sandra

Guest designer for Scrapper´s Delights

Hi!

Today I want to share a card I have created for Scrapper´s Delights new digital stamps release and the latest challenge "Bling it up". This was a fun stamp to color up! I love how it is already a scene from the begining! And for this card I wanted a elegant look. The girls pearls is made with pearlmaker. 4 Crafty Chicks have a nice and elegant photo to be inspired by. I love photos! And Stampin´for the Weekend have a bingo. I have used Ribbon - Pearls - Pink. (But if you look at the whole bingo-plate, there is actually just 2 squars I don´t have included, lol (lace and butterfly), this was bingo in my taste!!)

The sentiment was a freebie from Patty Wraps.

I was so lucky and won 2 digi´s!

Hi all!

I was so lucky and won 2 digital stamps from Sassy Studio Designs! It was very hard to choise but finally I made the choise of 2 stunning digital images. This is one of them. :) She is called Bonnie of the Nile. First I tried to color gold on her, but I couldn´t really get the right shimmer so I added gold glitter and that did the trick. I have used a lot more gold on this card than I normally do, but I think this digi can carry up a lot more gold in the card than others. :)
The sentiment was decided before I started with the card because of Paper Sundaes Challenge. The sentiment is also the thing that pop in my card (besides the flowers) with dots under it. I hope it is clear enough in the photo. At least you can see the shadow under it. :)


And as you can see my base is kraft. :)

Happy Valentine´s Day!

Hi!

I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine´s Day. I created a card for my daughter, and I liked the color challenge over at Simply Magnolia, so I went after that. Red, pink and white is the color my card has. Red and pink is a really nice combination.


I like to color more soft at the moment. I didn´t like that before. But it is always nice to change.

Willow

Hi!

Today I have a birthday card to show you. It is Tickled Pink Stamps that have a challenge and the colors is blue, orange, beige and yellow. I thought this sounded a lot like the 70th´s as I think it was Regan who also thought so. I think most photos was in black and white back then, so I made her black and white and added the colors to the card instead. I love this cardstock, so beautiful. The only problem is that the other side is beautiful too! In the other side it is pink with white dots. Love that too! This paper is from Jillibean Soup. I must say I have not heard about them, but that doesn´t say much really, since me and remembering names doesn´t belong to the same sentense. All the flowers are from Magnolia. The sentiment is from Marion 82, When the scrap hits the fun.

Edwin on my layout

Hi all!

When I saw the sketch over at TOMIC, I was inspired to do a layout. That doesn´t happen to often, I think I should do more, it is soo fun! This is one of my favorite photo´s all time. :) It is because it was so spontanious. Jocke was going to see if the ocean was warm, and was surprised by the wave. His expression of the face might be hard for you too see, but I can tell you it was funny! :)

So I finally cut those beautiful papers I had from Magnolia. The ones with the waves. Oh sometimes I want to save these beautiful things, but for what purpose? I shouldn´t think like that, it is much better to use them! Don´t  you agree?!

The difficult thing with layouts is that it is so hard to take good photo´s of them. They are so big. I hung this on the wall and I think it is ok. Not the greatest, but not the worst photo..

My layout:


It was great to finaly use this Edwin. I am ashamed that I have a couple of stamps I havn´t yet used. They just lay there. But one of them had to come out this week, it feels good!

The sketch I was inspired by:

Digital stamp from Whoopsi Daisy

Hi!

This is a card I have created for a combination of challenges. It is the first time I use an Whoopsi Daisy image, and she is soo cute! The sentiment is from Marion82, When the scrap hits the fun, link in my sidebar. I love purple, and purple and grey is a new combination for me. The heart swirl is from Magnolia, and is also new. I have colored with my promarkers. My daughter like this card, is it for me? she asked when she saw it. But I have not yet done her card for Valentine´s day. It isn´t as easy to hide it from her as from J. She sees everything. Always!

Rock Chick

Hi!

This is a secret card. Sccchhhhh!
It is to Jocke for Valentines day, so I hope he doesn´t read my blog before that. Do you see the beautiful charm? I recieved it from Majsan, thank you so much!! I love it! :)

The stamp is called Rock Chick and is from Kenny K.
This is one of my attempts to color blond hair. I find it quite difficult. It is an easel card. Hm.. so many male cards, cards for men these days. As you can see I have tried to keep the colors manly too. The beautiful golden corner is from WOC. I have colored my image with my promarkers.


I am gonne write something sweet on the note.
And yes, he has an electric guitarr that he loves to play on, so this is perfect to him on Valentine´s Day.

And when my card is folded it looks like this:

Lil birthday lad Luca

Hi all!

Finally all in my family is well again, puh! So I have a new card. I wanted to do a more clean card and let Luca and the car images be in focus. So I have combined Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge with Paper Sundaes Challenge.

I red that Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge will close... so sad to hear that.

Behind Luca is a car from Papermania. I saw that Jill had background stamps, so I know it is ok. :) This is one of the clearstamps I got from Beate. :)


He looks like a dream. :)
He was very fun to color, and the car too. I think they are a perfect match.
