Baby Girl Breezy

2014-04-06, 1So I wanted to make a Thank-you-card for my grandparents as a thank you for the gift they gave Freja for her name-ceremony. I think this is the first real card (like my old ones) that i have made this year, and probably sense Freja was born. Perhaps this set it all in motion again…

I started out with these Papers that is from Echo Park’s Bundle of Joy, I love that they are so pink and cute. It’s a bit to pink for my taste but it’s2014-04-04, 2 perfect for my grandmother. Then I colored Breezy in matching colors, with copics of coarse. It was ages sense I colored her, I even think it was when i got my first copics. For the background around her i made a dotted background, very lightly to look like heaven or clouds. I cut the image with my nestabilities and then wrote the sentiment on the edge. The decorations are just some brads, a satin ribbon and rhinestones, I do think the card looks a bit bare but it’s finished and ready to be sent so that is a big victory for me right now. The layout is from this weeks challenge on Sketch Saturday. The inside is inspired by the outside but still leaves a lot of space for a message.

Hugeble Boo

2013-02-17, 2

So after my remake I decided to make a card with my Boo stamps- that i adore but haven’t used yet.

The card is 11×15 cm and I based the card of this weeks Sketch Saturday layout. I just love the Boo-stamps and especially this one. When i see the ghost I just wanna hug them both. I tried to colors the doll in standard halloween-colors but I kept the card fairly colorless. The paper is from Doodlebug’s collection and the sentiment is from AmyR Sentiments.

Challenges

A Vintage Smile

Welcome to another week on the Sweet Stampin’ Challenges. This weeks challenge is Vintage. For this week we have two lovely sponsors: Joanna Sheen wit a  £10 voucher and Crafy Ribbons.

Oh I found this challenge really hard. I have no idea to get the softness that i associate with vintage cards. But after some brainstorming i came of with wrinkly and brown for my card.

I started out with stamping this music background from Hero Arts in Rich Cocoa. I then wrinkled the paper and distressed it with antique linen and vintage photo. I then tore the edges and the scraped them a bit. I wanted to keep the card clean due to the rich colors but it looked so empty i just needed to fill the space in someway so i dug out this flourish-die. The flourish stem is glued down but the leafs i put up a bit with gluedots.

Floral Angels

Welcome to another challenge over at the Sweet Stampin’. This weeks theme is Inspired by a Song or Film. Our monthly sponsor with a £10 voucher is Joanna Sheen. And this weeks weekly sponsor is Papelitos Stamps who will give 3 digis for our first place-winner and 1 digi to the second place-winner.

My card is inspired by the movie “Just like heaven” starring Reese Witherspoon and Mark Ruffalo. This is one of my favorite romantic movies, and I don’t really know why. But it’s perfect when you want a romantic one with a hint of sadness:). It’s about a boy that sees a ghost and it turned out that the ghost is girl who is in a coma. When i saw the clouds of this adorable stamp I just thought about this movie. Entangled in the plot is a garden and it was the garden that inspired my papers for this card. The blue-ish paper that i used also has an floral pattern, but it’s tone on tone with glossy details.

The Stamp is from Papelitos Stamps and is called Angels Love. I really like it, it’s just so cute, but i have to admit I’m a bit disappointed due to the resolution it it. I did print it fairly small but I can see pixels which I don’t like.I tried something new when i Colored the hair. Both the girl and the boy is based on the Cool Grays, but the girl have a base-layer of green, and the boy has one in blue. i really like how different it turned out.

The papers is from KaiserCraft and I bought this paperpack due to the floral paper long ago and just thought it would be perfect. The layout is inspired by this weeks layout over at the Sketch N Stash.

To accompany the card I also made a tealight-box. The though from the beginning was to make a tealight-card but I actually ran out of cardstock and couldn’t find a matching one downtown so it became a card and box instead. The box has an acetate-window that have been embossed with my swiss dot embossingfolder, but It might be a bit hard to see. A long time ago i made myself a template for the tealight-card so I did use this measurements for it.

The inside is made but it’s fairly regular so I didn’t get a photo.

Vacation-time

I’s time for another challenge for Sweet Stampin’ and this weeks theme is Ribbon and Bows.

Our lovely sponsors for this month is still Joanna Sheen with a £10 voucher and our weekly sponsor is Crafty ribbons with TBC.

So I just had to make another card with the lovely Bunny Cruise. Once again i did the bath-ring all in one color, I don’t really like the fishes and don’t really wanna  accent it. The image is colored  with copics and the clouds are made with some tumbled glass. The image is framed with my new and wonderful labels 2.

The papers are from My Minds Eye’s collection  Indie Chic: Nutmeg. The image is a bit off, the yellow paper is a bit more lemony in real life. The greeting I used is from AmyR’s underwater-set.

My embellishments consists of a white doily, some paper piercing, some small brown pearls and a cream-ribbon.

A clean and simple purple heart

So when i finish the House Mouse-card I still had some time over and i wanted to make a card for my dear friend that i feeling a bit down now so I want to cheer her up in the only way i can.

A week or two ago i saw this card on the Casual Friday Challenge and i just love it so I wanted to make a clone. Yes i have started to clone cards, I’m trying to expand my style a bit and I think this help with widening my horizons.

Anyway, my friends favorite color is purple so I wanted to incorporate it into the card. I started out with the same idea but with purple and white, or purple and black cardstock but it just didn’t look good so i went back to original card and used a black and white cardstock and only having some purple in the heart. The purple paper is from Kaiser Craft and the Sentiment is from AmyR’s Big Words and it’s embossed with White embossingpowder. I have to get me some ultrafine embossingpowder. The top layer, the black one with the heart-window is pop up on some dimensionals.

Mom’s Birthday-mermaid

 So last weekend was my mother’s birthday but i hadn’t had time to make her a card so i have spent a bit of this week (coloring and cutting) and weekend.

As it was for my mother i just had to use a mermaid or some fishes, so i choose my favorite mermaid, the Sweet November Bubbles Lostlagoon. Both me and my mom really love the blue/green color, she more for the mint green and me more for the petrol, so I decided to use Bo Bunny’s collection Peacock Lane. I tried to color Bubbles accordingly to the papers. I used BG45 and BG49 for the hair and i have to say that i love these pens, the blend so nice and give a such nice vibrant color – I need to use them more often from now one. The pearls in her hair have been colored with a white gelly roll-pen. On the tail I used like the only combination of yellow/green that i have but i didn’t feel happy with it so i tried to give it a bit more texture by making a crisscross-pattern. But I still didn’t like it, it looked to dull so i covered the tail with some crackle accent. To make Bubbles company i stamped and colored Seamoore and Lio that are companions for some of the other mermaid but i thought that this would be perfect for my mother.

For the sentiment I used AmyR’s underwater sentiment stamped with some Grape Gelly Memento Ink. The 47 is made with the smallest scalloped  and normal nestabilities circle and the Provocraft’s alphabet Babyface. The ribbon is tied with a Nellie-knot, I saw Heather making on on a video, you can find it here, and I just loved it. I have always had a problem with using sheer ribbon due to the fact that i don’t like the adhesive showing through and i want the ribbon to be at least a bit fastened- so this was a great solution, and it worked out great for this card!

Lastly i hope my mother can forgive me for putting her age on her card:D

My first owl

So earlier this week I got a nice package with two new stamp-sets from The Crafter’s Meow. I have so fallen in love with their owls and just had to order some of them. Sense i do have a card that i love, you can find it here, so i just had to buy the Christmas set and then the valentines one just were so cute so i couldn’t not order it. Right now I do regret I didn’t get the birthday one too but that might be next month buy.

Anyway i wanted to make a simple and small card and i did of coarse wanted to use one of my new owls. I wanted to paper piece the owl so I found this brown dotted paper from Jillibean Soup, the mustard soup-collection, that i really liked. I kept going with the paper piecing and got a yellow paper from the same collection. I used the small nestabilities circle and one of the grommet tags from spellbinders to frame the image and the sentiment. Inside the circle and the grommet tag I inked with some memento new sprout and Pear tart, the photo ain’t showing of the green that well but the color looks really spring-fresh. The sentiment is from CC Design and AmyR Sentiments stamps, and i just love then and this is the first time I use it even if i have played a lot on scraps. The sentiment is stamped with Memento’s tuxedo black and rich cocoa. The stamped inks have faded a lot due to the fact that i inked the green overtop of it, next time i need to do it in the opposite order… only problem is that i like to stamp the sentiment first and then cut it out with the spellbinders die.

I’m very happy with the card and I think I will make a couple more with this basic layout, especially when I need a card quickly…

A Blue and Purple Fathom Calmsea

I got a nice tip from Birgitte the other day about an challenge over at the Copic Challenge Group that is about colors of the sea and of coarse got a nice fuzzy feeling and started out another of Sweet November’s mermaids, this time Fathom Calmsea.

Sense the challenge was about colors if the sea i had to keep to the blue theme but i do some more water-like before so i wanted to make this one not so extremely obvious. So i checked through my stash and found DCWV’s Winter Combo stack and wanted to use it. I started out with the light paper and thought it reminded me a bot of seaweeds and corals.

I colored Fathom Calmsea and the three Lios accordingly to the papers. I really like the green touches and I can almost see her peeking up from a puddle of seaweed:) I also tried a new way of coloring the tail. I wanted to get a more fish-like feeling with scales but didn’t want the normal round scale so i tried some horizontal lines. Björn said it look like mackerel so it it worked on him at least.

The divider between the two background-papers is made with the Dainty Dots-die from My Favorite Things. For embellishments i used a baby blue satin ribbon and some light blue rhinestones. The card is made from this weeks Midnight Madness Sketch. Instead of the circular parts of the sketch i placed Lio to take up that space. The greeting is “You make me Happy” in Swedish.

A floral Bubbels

So after a lot of christmas-cards i felt like making a card for my own pleasure and sense i really wanted to do a card with Sweet November’s Bubbles Lostlagoon.I just love her hair and she is the the only sitting figure i have so far so next time i will have to make something for her to sit on.

I first deiced that i wanted to use Bo Bunny’s Barefoot Bliss so I tried to color accordantly to the papers. I started our with the green tail and then kept going with the hair. I did want it to be a bit orange/yellow to match the hibiscus-flowers of the paper but i didn’t found a good combination due to the fact that i only have one orange so it got the be a bit more yellow. I don’t think it have enough contrast but that will have to be for the next time. The orange pen is an Copic original pen and i had a really hard time to blend it well when i used it direct to the paper, and i think it got a bit to soft when i used the tip to tip method with the Y17.

The frame for Bubbles is made with scalloped circles and circles nestabilities and the white oval have been embossed/letterpressed with the circles impressabilities. The tag is made with Tim Holtz’s Tiny Tab & tags and i backed the tag on a blue circle made with nestabilities circle. The stamp is from the text-set from Reprint (the swedish word for Thanks). The wave on the bottom is made with My Favorite Things Jumbo Scallop. The inside is made with the same wave.
