House Mouse Birthday-Spring-Card

Todays card is a birthday card for my sister that turns 23 in the beginning of next week.. I don’t think this is the colors i associate with her but i stared with a pink cupcake-holder then i just became this pink…

The image is House Mouse Birthday Cupcake that is a part of the Birthday: Ice Cream-set. The little mouse with the cheese-gift, on the inside of the card, is from the same stamp-set. The images is colored with promarkers and i’m really happy with the result on the cupcake (gold, apricot and pastel yellow). On the frosting on the cupcake i have used my snowmarker, very thin layer, and then i painted on some Magenta sticklers. I use a brush to paint the stickles so i could get a thin layer and exactly were I wanted it. You can see the dimension and the frosting better in the picture to the right. The sentiment is a Penny Black stamp from the Critter Party-set. I stamped it with Versa Colors 15 Magenta. 184 Misty Mauve and 13 Orange to match the colors on the paper that is from Crate Papers collection Pink Plum. I have tried to keep the color-scheme on the inside.

All papers and stamped areas have been distressed with Worn Lipstick and the fabric butterflies have also been distressed with Worn Lipstick and some Spiced Marmelade. The butterflies had a to strong colors so i used the backside up to just get a hint of the original color that i then altered with distress inks. I just stapled on the butterflies with a regular staple-machine. The background paper and the white paper have been dry embossed with provocrafts embossingfolders. On the background i used Victorian and on the white paper i used swiss dots. The border under the ribbon is made by Martha Stewart’s border punch modern garland. The buttons is from old clothing and have been embellished with some multicolored pink thread.

The Layout form this card i got from this weeks Sweet Stop Challenge (SSS104). And due to nice circumstances I’m also entering this card for a couple of more challenges.

And THANK YOU Kristina for borrowing me the Easel. I think it works great and made the photographing much easier. Now i need to but my own and paint it!

Basic Grey and House Mouse birthday

This card is made for my friend Kristoffer and his birthday this weekend. The inspirations for the card I got from Basic Greys Challenge and House Mouse Challenge for this week. The Layout is from the House Mouse one and the Basic Grey challenge is “more then one fold” so i decided to make an Easel-Card. All the papers are Basic Greys Pyrus and the stamp is from House Mouse set Birthday: Ice Cream and the stamp Birthday Cupcake. The image is colored with both Promarkers and Copic and the frosting is coated with some glossy accent that have been sprinkled with a bit off black embossingpowder. I tried to find something good as sprinkles but couldn’t find anything suitable and embossingpowder was the best i could come up with (too late I realized that i could have used some of my brown flocking, but maybe next time). I embellished the card by putting in eyelets in the corners of the cardfront and the image and threaded a rounded ribbon through them. Due to the fact that this cardfront is mounted on an Easel-card i just taped down the ends in the bottom half and I did a knot with a piece sticking out on the top half were you can see the backside of the card. I keep  going with the ribbons on bottom part of the card but on the right side i did a visible knot. All the papers are roughed and distressed with vintage Photo. The Image is also distressed with vintage photo and i added some faded jeans. The black embellishments are rubb-ons that i cut into small pieces.

Dagens kort är inspirerat av veckans House Mouse och Basic Greys utmaningar. Basic Grey vill se olika typer av vikningar och House Mouse har en layout (se höger). Stämpeln är som används är Birthday Cupcake från House Mouse set Birthday: Ice Cream. Jag har färglagdt med promarkers och Copics och frostingen är täckt med Glossy Accent och lite svart embossingpulver. För dekoration på kortet har jag valt att fästa eylets och dra igenom ett brunt, runt band. På den övre halvan av kortfronten har jag gjort knutar som syns och på den undre sidan har jag bara tejpat fast bandet då det döljs av Easel konstruktionen.
