Maskunline birthday card – MC

This card is for my Cousin that turn 18 this Wednsday.

The papers are cardstock and the black one is a Cor’dinations that i have dry-embossed with Provocraft’s embossingfolder Clockworks and then i sanded it to make the white core appear better. All edges have been thorn and distressed with Vintage Photo. The the light block with the sentiment has been wrinkled and distressed with Vintage Photo.

The image is from Tina design found at the store Arkivet. I bought this one and a steam-engine train this Wednesday on Arkivet’s 7th birthday and i love them, it’s gonna be much easier to make masculine cards. The senitiments are from Penny Black set Critter Party.

The ribbons is put through a couple of eyelets (white ones) that i have sanded a bit and lightly colored with black stazon. The ribbons have been colored with distress-inks. The brown one is only Vintage Photo and the other one is a mix of Black Soot and Weathered Wood. I first mixed some water and ink and make some spots on the cotton ribbon and then i used my blending tool to color in the rest, then they were the dried with my heatgun.

The layout is by this weeks Sketch Saturday (the first picture to the right) and the Technique is from The Shabby Tearoom and is about dry embossing (the second picture to the right).


Pink Flower Lady

Todays card is made with an focal that I experimented with yesterday using emboss-resist-technique.

The focal image is first stamped with Gina K’s timeless textures, with Versa Colors 152 Ash Rose, the script stamp and then i clear-embossed Hero Arts Flower Lady. After that the entire imaged got heavily distressed with milled lavender. I did the same thing with the label, that is the Quickutz die labels, and i stamped two small hearts on it with the Ash Rose again. The cards background is a simple white cardstock that have been teated with provocrafts embossingfolder Victoria and then lightly distressed with some more milled lavender. The bottom edge, bot white and pink paper, have been punched with Fiskar’s border punch scalloped circles. The flowers are simple white Reprint papers that has been embellished with some small pearls. The ribbon that is used is a pink multi-colored one that i think match both the dark and the light pink. The dark pink cardstock is a bazil bling one which makes it a bit hard to get a accurate picture of the color but it works really good together with the ash rose and milled lavender. The card is a 15 x 10cm, very close to an A6.

The cards layout is from this weeks Mojo Monday (#192). I didn’t change much but I’m happy. I’m also trying to enter this month Hero Arts challenge for the first time.

Caroline on Echo Park

The card has a joy-fold and are for my sister in law which is waiting her second child.

I have been working out from this weeks Mojo Monday’s layout and all patterned papers are from Echo Park’s collection A walk in the Park. The image is Kraftin Kimmie’s Caroline and i have colored her skin with copic and the hair with promarker and the dress have been paper piced with the Echo park-papers, I have done the same with the bottles. The bottles are mounted on an oval from Gina K’s Fanciful Labels and the greeting is from the same set. The borders are from Nellie Snellen and i dry embossed the yellow patterned paper with my Victorian embossingfolder from Provocraft. I have distressed all the papers with Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmelade  (and the green paper is distressed with Peeled Paint. The flowers are Ek Sucsess’s Flower Power and i did embellished them with a small pearl. I kept the pearls going in Caroline’s hair and dress also. The scalloped circle containing the greeting is made with nestabilities and Mavy Uchida scalloped punch.

I’m not entirely happy with the inside, as an after thought i think i should have dressed the background in a patterned paper. I was to greedy about the papers when i first thought abut it but i have to admit that it doesn’t look as goos like this.









Challanges I’m entering with this card:

Green Penny Black

This is the result from yesterdays craft-session with my sister and her friends. The layout is from this weeks Mojo Monday (#187). The image is one from Penny Black’s clearstamp set Piece of my heart, and as usually it’s colored with promarkers. The word ”smile” on the images tag is a part of a sentence from House Mouse’s set Birthday: Ice cream. And the text in the left bottom corner is from Penny Black Critter Party and the ”just for you” on the tags, that is the Quickutz die tags, is from Hero Arts Warm wishes. The border is made with Martha Stewart’s borderpunch Modern Garland. The papers are from Maja designs collection ”Ska vi ta en fika”. The white paper have been dry embossed with provocrafts swiss dots embossingfolder. The other decorations are just light green pearls and dark green brads. Im also entering this card into the Simon says challenge – emboss it again sense in really happy with the card and the I love Promarker (#62) Anything goes.

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!

Bright Springcard (Mojo185)

Today i have been working with this weeks Mojo Monday (#185) and my Penny Black stamps that i have realized i don’t use as much i would like. The striped paper is from DCVW’s paperpack Baby Boy and the white paper is regular cardstock that is embossed with Provocrafts Swiss dots. The image is from Penny Black clearstamp-set Garden friends and it’s colored with promarker and copics and the cheeks are chalked. The sentiment is from the same stamp-set and have been stamped with Shabby Shutters. The bow is double-looped and made with my Bow-easy. The border is made with Fiskars scalloped border-punch. The image is cut with a nestabilities and a doyle. The flowers are from Reprint and are centered with a brad (there are two different yellow ones). The  card is covered (edged, flowers and image and sentiment) with stardust stickles to match the glitter in the striped paper. You can se the layout and the inside at the bottom at this post.

Dagens kort är ett vårkort med mjuka och ljus färger för att kompensera den grå himlen utanför. Layouten kommer från veckans Mojo Monday (nr185). Motivet  och texteb är från Penny Blacks set Garden friends och jag har faktiskt användt både promarker och copics. Cirklarna är nestabilities och en doyle. Den vita rektangeln är torrebmossad med Provocrafts Swiss Dots embossingfolder och kanten längst ner är Fiskars scalloped borderpunch. Blommorna är från Reprint och är fästa med två olika sorters gula brads. Runt i stort sett alla kanter, blommorna och texten har jag använt stardust stickles. Isidan och orginal-layouten finns underst i inlägget.

Jimmy 25år

Nu har jag lyckas göra klart Jimmys kort. det känns lite konstigt eftersom att jag inte riktigt vet vad han har för smak så jag har försökt att hålla det ganska rent och lite manligt slitet. Jag har gjort ett gatefold card och papprena är från Bo Bunnys Midnight Frost. Efter att ha satt samman de olika panelerna av mönsterpapprena har jag embossat den med cuttlebugs embossingfolder Spot and Dots (som framhävs med faded jeans). Sedan har jag satt i lila och blå minibrads lite här också där för att försöka locka fram en mer levande känsla och den blålila färgen vilket Jimmy tydligen skall gilla. Motivet är gjort med nestabilities och Quickutz alfabet harvest (vilket efter en massa letande tydligen är det enda siffror jag har). Det blå sidenbandet fungerar både som avdelare men också som dörrstopp. Den lilla rosetten på vänster sida hindrar kortet från att glida upp men den sitter så snällt på att det inte på något sätt är svårt att öppna kortet. På Motivet finns det även en snöflinga och ännu en minibrad. Den vita bakgrunden är lätt tryckts med Faded Jeans..

This card is for my sisters boyfriend that turns 25 tomorrow. The card is made by Bo Bunnys Midnight Frost paper. The papers have been embossed with cuttlebugs embossingfolder Spots and Dots and they have been enhanched with Faded Jeans distress ink. I Keept the faded jeans on the white paper behind the 25, pressed not blended, så it wouldn’t screen white. The 25 is made from Quickutz alaphabet harvest. The blue and purple dots are minibrads. The blue ribbon is a nice devider that also the doorstop. The left ribbon is close enough to make the ”doors” keep close. The shape behind the motive is nestabilities and almost all papers have been scraped.

Mojo 181 med Sagan om våren

The papers that are used are from Pion Design and the kollection is called Sagan om våren (in translation ”the tale of spring”). The motive are framed by nestabilities scalloped circle and then i have punched out the holes with my fiskars handpunch 1/16″. The lacy border is also a fiskars punch, a border punch, and i did use the leftovers after the punching to the steam or branches that is instead of the blocks in the sketch. I also switched the embalishments under the motive to text that is made from Quickkutz alphabet harvest. (Vår=Spring). The green paper that is added in the corner is embossed with Cuttlebugs embossingfolder Victoria. Around the edge of the bunny i have also distressed with Antique Linnen.


I dag har jag lekt lite med Mojo mondays veckoskretch och mina nya papper (jag var ju tvungen att fira mina pappersställ) från Pion Design.

Jag har valt att göra ett vårkort till min farmor och farfar. Jag har tagit bort de vertikala blocken från ritningen eftersom att jag inte kunde hitta något snyggt sätt att få in dem. Jag bytte istället ut blocken mot ett mönster av brun cardstock. De små bitarna är resterna från när jag gjorde spetskanten som löper diagonalt. Kanten är gjord med en Fiskars Border Punch. Ramen runt motivet är en scalloped nestabilities som jag har stansat ut cirklar från med Fiskars handpunch 1/16″. På samma sätt har jag gjort med den lilla kanten på den gröna delen. Jag har skurit pappret med en mönstersax och sedan stansat ut cirklarna. Den gröna pappret är också embossat med Cuttlebugs Victoria embossingfolder. Alfabetet som jag använt är Quickutz Harvest. Runt kanten på motivet har jag distressat lite med Antique Linnen. Alla papper som är använda och motivet, som är ett papper, kommer från kollektionen Sagan om våren av Pion Design. Jag tycker verkligen om den här kollektionen, det är så vårig, ljus och spröd.

BoBunny och Cinder

För några dagar sen fick jag hem lite stämplar från Sweet November Stamps. Jag fick hem Cinder, Meadow och Breezy. Jag gillade hästarna för att dom var allmänt söta men lilla Cinder är jag helt kär i!

Jag har ägnat mig att göra lite olika färgläggningar och jag valde den fina blå-gröna till ett kort. Tyvärr blev svansen lite illa behandlad i röran på mitt skrivbord men den gick i alla fall inte av. Alla papper som är använda är BoBunny av lite olika kollektioner. Jag blir bara mer och mer förtjust i BoBunny papprena. Jag funderar på att köpa in paperpacks i några kollektioner. Nästan alla papper är även körda genom lika Cuttlebug embossingfolders och samtliga papper är distressade med Broken China och Black Soot. Det är lite svårt att se på bilden men det blev ev riktigt läcker effekt när man kan se papprets mönster och embossingmönstret samtidigt (idén och faktiskt layouten fick jag på Paper in the Works). Längst ner i hörnet på kortet är det tre glansiga svarta brads. Ovalen bakom Cinder är distressad med Broken China och Faded Jeans och en scalloped circle för att efterlikna moln och samma sak gäller insidan som syns på bilden här under. Stämpel på insidan är från Magnolia. Jag har använt Ek Success cornerstans för de rundade hörnen.
