Merry Christmas!


Finally I have come in the right mood to create real Christmas cards. Hm.. and it is the 22th of December, a little late for this year maybe, but early for next years Chrismas. One have to think positive! :)
I have used a little bit stronger colors for this one. Really dark red.

And the dies I have used is from La-La Land

And Lifestyle Crafts and Joy Crafts. This border from Joy Crafts is really nice

Mega Christmas Challenge - Passion for ProMarkers


It is time! The big Mega Christmas Challenge over at Passion for ProMarkers.

This week we are launching our very special Mega Christmas challenge which runs for a whole month and ends on January 7th 2014!  I’m sure you’ll agree that both design teams have worked extremely hard once again this year and they deserve a little break to catch up on their last minute gifts and cards.  However to make up for the lack of challenges we have some fantastic prizes up for grabs.

Our theme for the Mega Christmas challenge is a nice easy one “include a sentiment”.  You are welcome to make Christmas cards but as the challenge will still be running after the ‘BIG’ day you can of course make any type of creation as long as it includes a sentiment of some kind.  As time is precious for our DT at this time of year we are limiting the number of entries you can make to just 3 for this month long challenge.  Please remember to be eligible for our prizes you must use your promarkers, flex markers, tria markers, metallic or aqua markers.

And ofcourse I have made a Christmas card for you to get inspired by. And this year I have sooo much to do so I had to make a more CAS Christmas card than usual. But for people who isn´t cardmakers it can be very good idea to give CAS cards because to much embellis can just be to much when not used to look at homemade cards.

God Jul means Merry Christmas if you don´t know swedish. :)

Have a very Merry Christmas all of you! Hugs Lotta

Viola from Winter Wonderland


Sometimes there is sooo little time to cardmaking that I get frustrated! But now I have created a card with this sweet Viola from Winder Wonderland collection. I used to think fur is hard to color, but for some reason it isn´t as hard on this cute dog. This is my second coloring of her and I have enjoyed every minute!

The papers is from Magnolia, Maja design and Pink Paisley. I love how well they combined even thought so different brands. And for once I have made the inside ready. :) As you can see!

Here you can see the beautiful die from Crafts-too, Entwined. Love it!

A little pearl on this butterfly that I have painted with Inka Gold - Silver.

The lace you can find here: creme colored lace

And here is the finished card. :)

To my daughter!


Whenever I need to do a family-card and have noone to give it too, I give it too my daughter. She loves my card and if I give her a chocolate bar with it, it is even better. Hihi.

Saturated Canary

The chocolate bar is also pink. Sorry I don´t have a picture of it. :)
The stamps is from Saturated Canary and is a rubber stamp. It was nice to take a break from the Christmas Cards and create something girly. My daughter is five years old, so this will suite her.

Have a great day! Hugs Lotta

I have finally had some time to make a card again! Whoho, it feels soo good!

Paper is from Maja design. And I have used a lot of dies. :) If you want to read more about the items on my card you can head over to http://blogg.moapyssel.se/.

Fur can be a little tricky to color. But if you take one part after each other it will be good in the end.

Gorgeous dies to make the card pretty. :)

In the spotlight!


This weeks theme over at Passion for ProMarkers is "In the spotlight". Stamp up one stamp two times. Color a spot and cut it out. Use 3d cushins to make some 3d effect and place it over the first stamp that is not colored. Spotlight! :)

This week I have used a Hänglar and stänglar stamp. Dies from Joy and Marianne design, two of my favorite brands. You can find them at www.moapyssel.se Paper is from Papermania. The digital circle text is a freebie I found a long time ago. Not sure about the brand.

Now head over to PFP and see what my teammates have created this week: PFP theme - week 224

This card I started to create on a event in Karlstad. But as usual I had to finish it when I come home, so I have just finished it. :)

I have used one of my favorite brands when it comes to design paper, Echo Park. I have used lots of layers of one of Marianne designs dies, also this is my favorite. Heart banner comes from La-La Land Crafts. My store has these dies left: La-La Land Crafts dies

Wee Florist from Wee stamps


When Mariska van der Veer asked me about my very first card with a Wee stamp I realised I had forgot to blog it. :) I have used the sweet Wee Florist and when I see her I think about the summer we just have had. The card is an easel card and I have used the beautiful Lifestyle Crafts nesting frame 10, for the shape. Designpaper is from Maja design, the collection Sofiero.

What is Wee Florist without flowers? Here you can see them in close up. 

Sweet lace and on the leaf is some acrylic color. It gives this old and nice effect.

Bu means.. I think you can guess... Boo! :)

Dies is something I really love to play with and here is some from La-La Land crafts and Joy Crafts.

Digital stamp from Saturated Canary


The challenge over at Passion for ProMarkers is "Lots of legs", which means we want to see more than two legs. :)
Well, frogs have legs too, so I chose this cute stamp which is a digital stamp from Saturated Canary.

I have colored with ProMarkers and added some stickles to her dress. When coloring some grass and sky to the stamp really gives one more dimension.  This card is very CAS for being me, but sometimes it is nice to go easy on the card. Hope you join us!  Hugs Lotta

Last GDT card for I love ProMarkers


This will be my last GDT card for I love ProMarkers! But on the other hand, I can participate in one of my favorite challenges again, noting bad that doesn´t bring something good to it! :)

This time the sponsor is Pink Gem Designs and they have kindly provided us with digi stamps. The stamp I got was this cutie. Perfect for our Christmas cards! Oh boy, I have never started this early, I think I have a chance to actually create a couple of cards this year! :)

The flowers is handmade. Link to the challenge: Make your own flowers. With this dies from Marianne design it is easy to roll sweet roses.

The design paper is from two different collections from Maja design. One of my favorite paper designers.

Hope you join us over at I love ProMarkers!

Anything goes over at I love ProMarkers


Yes, again, I am GDT at I love ProMarkers, it is the month of September I am guesting them! :)
This time it is Anything goes and that is an easy one! I have colored with ProMarkers (I have Aquamarkers, but use them mostly for background coloring).

The stamp is Fairy Wishes from Saturated Canary.

The base to the card is made by the wonderful dies from Lifestyle Crafs number 10. Cut out a folded cardstock and attach a new whole front to it to be able to write something inside. 

Have a nice day! Hugs Lotta

DT-card for Passion for ProMarkers


Whoho! This is my first DT-card for Passions for ProMarkers! The theme this time is "embossing". I use mostly dry embossing, using my big shot and embossing pad. This time I have used a really lovely embossing folder called Brick Wall. And I wanted my stamp and background to match so I doodled some bricks to my stamped image. Purple and green is two of my favorite colors and here I have them both in the goreous paper (that hardly is visable), on the stamp and the embellis. :)

I hope I can inspire you to take out your ProMarkers and embossing powder/folder and join in our challenge here: Passion for ProMarkers

Further more about my card, I have used a digi stamp from Saturated Canary (that I got from Regan in a blog candy, not the digi, but a voucher), dies from Joy Crafts, Magnolia and Marianne design. The butterfly is inked up with Inka Gold. I love to mess around with Inka gold! :)

GDT för I love ProMarkers


When Karen asked me if I wanted to be GDT for I love ProMarkers, I was so happy and said ofcourse YES! ProMarkers is one of my biggest passions when it comes to cardmaking and scrapbooking. I have used them for a couple of years now and is very happy with them.

The theme this time is to use three different shapes. I used circle, oval and rectangle. I like shapes, heart shape and star is also beautiful shapes.

Saturated Canary

I have used a rubber stamp from Saturated Canary that is called Thank You. She is soo sweet and sometimes it is nice to color a stamp with not to much hair. It is often the hair that takes time to color up.

Sponsors this time for I love ProMarkers challenge is Paper Shelter & Visible Image. See I love ProMarkers for link.

Have a nice day! hugs Lotta

No lines technique - S C


When Saturated Canary have a coloring challenge, it is to difficult to resist! :)
This is sweet Summer who is a rubber stamp from Saturated Canary. I have inked her very faint so I have had to really focus when coloring her! And I made the sky with clouds with a little doodling. The paper is from Maja design and with a stamp like this I wanted to focus on her so not much embellisments on this card. And I think this might be the last summer card for this year.

Just a tiny diecut from a dies from Marianne design and a rose on the first side.

It took me some time to color this stamp. :) I enjoyed it very much!

For the European Scrap Battle


I joined the European Scrap Battle in two categories. Both layouts and cards. It is fun and there is a facebook group we have joined to chat a little. It almost feels like a scrapbook-event! I mean meeting. :)

I scrapped a wedding photo. Well, I think I will do this a lifetime, I have around 100 more too go... lol. So check back in this blog in lats say.. 10 years from now and you will still see me scrapping my wedding pictures. Hihi. :)

The challenge was to inspires from the color and style from The Scrap Battle blog. You see the colors in my layout and also my card. And it has distressed pages and a little clean look and still dirty. I think you have to go and see for yourself. :) My explanition isn´t the best. Colors and style: The blog

This was my interpreting of a card that I made from this colors:

We where not allowed to tell which card we had made so I didn´t use my watermark or my edges that I always have. So noone should know it was me who had made the card. :)
It is a digi from Kenny K that I enjoy coloring very much. She is beautiful, I think. I made the edges more dusty and one can acctually see some of the papers I have used, which is rare. :)

Enjoy your day! Thanks for looking! Hugs Lotta

Digi from Make it Crafty


Today the sun is shining in Sweden and it is late summer, but still lovely! So I was inspired to create a sweet summer card with this stamp Ella Faye from Make it Crafty.

Fjärilsbårder(butterfly border) from Joy Crafts. The beautiful lace is this one: big lace. It is beautiful!

The (ställ för kort) under the card is from Joy and can be found here: Joy dies

Under it all is wonderful paper from Maja Design. I am wondering why I put it there, since nothing can be seen. You have to take my word for it, it is beautiful. :)

I have colored with ProMarkers on Letrasets paper.

Magnolia card :)


This is one of my favorite stamps at the moment! She is soo fun to color! Even in black and white! I saw the gorgeous card Louise had made for Magnolia Down Under and from that challenge I combined a couple of others and made my card to a winter birthday card. Just for fun! I have no idea who to give it to, maybe to my old friend Maria who´s birthday is 28 of december. :)

She is soo sweet! Love her! I have colored her with my ProMarkers.

Lovely from Saturated Canary


This is Lovely from Saturated Canary. I think it was a fun challenge over at Saturated Canary that we all should use the same stamp. It is fun to see all the different styles and interpretations we all have!
I wanted something more dramatic, fairtytale-like for my card. And I think I got it - lol.
One day I will do a light card, but not tonight! :)

I have colored with ProMarkers as usual. When I was finished I think she looked a little like Marion in Robin  Hood. How I think she looks, at least. :)

Make it Crafty coloring contest


Have you seen there is a coloring contest over at Make it Crafty? Well, that is the kind of contest I just can´t get my hands off! Even tho I might not have much time for cardmaking and coloring these days, I just had to take me some time! 3 (woot?) cards is the result. Let´s start from the begining.

I needed to take the easy challenge first, to warm up. I just colored and wasn´t really thinking when creating her hair. But that would change in the second card which is...

This card for the second contest. It is the medium advanced contest where we should make fine lines. And I had to focus on this one.

And instead of trying out the difficult challenge I wanted to play some with colors after focusing so much on Anastasia. This is the result. :)

And close up of the one I am most pleased with:
