Happy New Year to everyone!
So I decided to make top 5 of my cards i made the last year. And i will try go get better ones during this year. This is also my way of playing around now when I’m away from home:)
So after looking at the cards made last year i realized that i couldn’t keep it to only 5 so i had to come do a top 7 instead. So here is my top 7 (in no specific order)
Holly Jolly Deer
A Micely Cupcake for my grandfather
Fruity fun on Hello Luscious
I Got my Mojo back
Disney’s Mickey and friends
A House Mouse Graduation-card
I have made another card for House Mouse and Friends 100ed challenge and this time i tried some new papers out. I used this week Sketch Saturday sketch for the layout.
The Image is Fruity Fun from House Mouse and i colored it with only gray (N-series) and skin-tones (which i coated with Y21 to get a more yellow tone). The background have been distressed with Antique Linen so it won’t be any harsh white. I paper pierced around the edge for a bit more dimension.
The Paper that is used is from Making Memories Paper Reverie collection. I love them, they are so delicate and soft and yet have a depth to them, As embellishments i used Martha Stewart’s borderpunch Modern Garland to mate the lacy borders. I used some beige buttons and a black satin ribbon. The flowers are made with Fiskar’s punch Retro flower (medium) and flower power. I put them together and put a pearl in the middle.
Copic: N9, N7, N5, N3, N1, E43, E41, Y21, 0
Punches: Martha Stwearts Modern Garland, Fiskars Retro Flower Medium and Flower Power.
Other: Distress Ink Antique Linnen

Sketch Saturday – #165 (Mine is tilted to the right)
This card is for my friend that LOVES superman and batman, and he happens to have his birthday this weekend.
The papers that i used is from DCWV’s All about Boys stack, that i actually bought just because these two sheets. Both papers had parts of glossy images, the superman is glossy on the yellow paper and the red words are glossy on the word-paper (and thats why it’s hard to get a good photo of it). I did follow this weeks Sketch Saturday layout and keept very true to it.
The tag on top is created with regular cardstock, Double Do’s alphabet die and Quickutz tag toppers die. The letters are yellow foam, but it was a bit to light to i colored the surface with Y08 to make it darker. I then punched out three holes with my Fiskars handpunch. The word that is put at the tag is the Swedish word for congratulations..
The embellishments on this cards is simple different kinds of ribbon and some minibrads.
Paper: DCWV All about Boys-stack (6×4″)

Other: Fiskar’s hand-punch

A spoon full of suger – # 161 Create a tag
This card is also for a kid as seen, or someone that really likes Disney.I have to apologize for the photos but it was very hard to take a good photo when this card has a lot of dimension and are a but bulky, especially around the paperclips.
All the papers, including the ones i used as center images, are from a paper pack called Making Disney Scrapbook Pages that i got from Paperwishes, and this paperpack should be an official disneyproduct. When i first got the paperpack i was very disappointed. At the webisode i saw about it the pack looked filled with the Junglebook, little mermaid and so on but it contains more then half of Winnie the Pooh, which i don’t like, and almost only half-pages of the ones i wanted. But in this card i think i succeeded to create a nice card with it.
I have framed all papers with black or white or both to get the cartoon-feeling. The with border is made by Fiskars Scalloped borderpunch. The bow is made with my handmade bow-easy and the paperclips i think came from a set of embellishments from Paperwishes, but i can’t promise.
I tried to keep the theme going on the inside, this time i cut the images out from the paper i used as background on the front of the card. Same ribbon and kind of paperclips are used here.

Todays card is a graduation-card, which explains all the yellow and blue (the Swedish flag). It’s made to be sold and don’t have a preconsidered receiver and lacks dates and years because of it.
All the papers are from Maja Design’s summer collection and i did distress the pleaded paper a tiny bit with faded jeans. All the papers have been doodled around and the edges have been painted black. I have done the layout after this weeks Saturday Sketch Challenge (see the picture at the bottom-down to the right).
The image is from my House Mouse Birthday: Balloon set and using the stamp Pop-ular fun. I Have colored my lovely mice with promarker trying to keep a soft color scheme. I did not have a soft blue so i used my midnight blue witch a picked up color from with my blender-pen. As adding a bit texture and depth into the image i stamped Hero Arts background-stamp Happy definitions in Antique Linen.
The flowers are made by Fiskar’s Retro Flower Medium and flower power punches, using the same paper as the rest of the card and a soft yellow pearl as centerpiece. I kept going with the same pearls as embellishments on the outside. The ribbon is regular satin ribbon in two different colors and sizes.
I made the inside using the same background paper and i did the Happy definitions on the Greeting space, light enough tpo give depth and still do’t disturb the message that will be put into it.
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.
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.
This card is made with this weeks Mojo Monday challenge as inspiration but also thinking of my friend Helena that loves tea. I want to make a card to her as a welcome-home-gift.
All the papers are from Maja Design’s collection “Ska vi ta en fika?” (it translates to “Wanna get a cup a coffe”). All the papers is distressed with Dusty Concord or/and Peeled Paint. The main image and the texts are from basic Greys stampset Cup of tea and the teabag on the sentiment is from a stamp that is a free sample with the paper “Craft Stamper”. The circles are nestabilities and the scalloped border is Fiskars border punch. All the ribbon is used were a lavender color that i then colored with copic V17. I also made an matching inside with a large area for a message.
I decied to do the same sketch as yesterday for today sence i wanted to do one more true to the sketch. All the papers are fron Inkidos collection Is this love?. The white borders is Fiskars borderpunch scalloped lace and the circles in the middle is nestabilities dies that i then have punched with fiskars handpunch 1/162 and 1/8″. The stamp is a unknown one.
Jag bestämde mig för att göra om veckan Mojo-layout och den här gången med ett kärlekstema eftersom jag hade en del papper från alla hjärtans dag som jag aldrig använde. Jag tycker om kortet, det är gulligt utan att vara allergiframkallande, tycker i alla fall jag. Papprena som jag har använt är från Inkidos kollektion Is This Love, och jag tycker om den mjuka framtoningen även om det var svårt att hitta matchande cardstock i mitt förråd. Jag har använd Fiskars Border punch Scalloped Lace och motivets cirklar är gjort med nestabilitie soch fiskars handpunch i både 1/16″ och 1/8″. Stämpeln är av okänt märke som jag fått efter en av min mammas turer till den stora kontinenten i väst.
Nu ska jag förhoppningsvis skapa ett kort till Jimmy som fyller år imorgon.
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.
