an old project

2013-01-02

I made these flower right after new years but I forgot to pu it up here. They are embellishing my desk at work at the moment and I have plans for make another couple in bright colors to get a spring and summer feeling later on.

I do love how the flowers turned out but I have to change the stems, for these ones i used barbecuesticks and i think i need softer ones next time so I can get a softer look and so I can be able to get more flower in the bouquet. The papers from the flowers are from Inkido and are is a nice thin and double-sided paper.

Juggling Raspberries – Finished Card

So today i did use my “Juggling with Raspberries to make a card.

I have been watching the progress of this two-week challenge from House Mouse and Friends and i havn’t come up with a contribution until now.

The card is featuring the House Mouse stamp Juggling with raspberries from the Summer: Waterlily-set, the same goes for the raspberries on the inside and on the recipe. The image is colored with copics and distress inks. The sentiment is from the House Mouse set Autum: Berry and is stamped with Versa Colors Pine Cone. The Papers that I used are from Inkido.

The embellishments are brads and small strips of the brown cardstock i used, and the corners are from one of the dies in Provocraft’s set Vintage.

The recipe on the fold is one for a ice cream-raspberry drink. Unfortunately i don’t have a printer for the moment so it’s my bad handwriting on display. The raspberries in the recipe is stamped with Versa colors Cardinal.

Cards of the day 3 – Springflowers

So i found myself with more time so i did yet another card, this time not meant for a kid, but everything works.

I wanted to try the technique were you stamp the image twice, cut out one and put it over the first for a more dimensional look. The main image here is made by three different stamps (see the details on the first picture to the right). The scripted background is from Gina K.’s Timeless textures, the sentiment is from Vilda Stamps and the butterfly that is Inkido’s small summer butterfly. The Script has been stamped with Antique Linen distress ink and the butterflies with memento black. The butterfly on the paper was first stamped on another paper so i got a lighter colors as “shadow”, but the cutout one is stamped as normal. The butterflies have then been colored with Promarkers Gold and Pastel yellow, then blended out to the edges. The butterflies have been put to the paper with half a glue dot, but i think i have to come up with a new way when it was very hard on such a small contact-surface, on the body of the butterflies and the wings have been bent up a bit.

The paper is from Echo Park’s 6×6″ paperpack A Walk in the Park and the lace is a self-adhesive paperlace from Panduro. The Flowers are made by EK Success punches flower power and retro flower medium. In the center of every flower there is a pearl, both white and soft yellow. (realized half way through that I’m out of white ones).

I tried to keep the inside on the same theme by using the same papers and stamps, the greeting is the only one that ain’t there. On the inside I only stamped the butterflies once, on the paper. I stamped the scripted background here also when i think that i just gove a softer look and won’t disturb the writing the gifter will put in.

I got inspired but this weeks Mix it up Monday challenge from Gina K: Wear your white.

 

Konfirmationskort

All day yesterday i was a very busy bee creating 8 cards that my aunt have ordered.  I got completely free hand making 8 confirmation invitations. This will be my first payed order so I’m a bit happy for that! I did wedding-inventions for my friend that got married last summer but them i made for free after she bought all the materials i needed.

I went with a clean and simple design sense i had to do a few of them. They are 15x11cm and the patterned paper is Inkido’s Turquoise Newspaper. I wanted a hint of blue when my two cousins that will be confirmed is two boys.

When planing the card i realized i had no stamps that would be fit for the occasion so i went downtown and came home with Reprint’s text set and You Do’s Wedding set. The stamps I ended up using is from You Do’s wedding set witch contained but the greeting (invitation in Swedish) and the small church.

The inside is simple decorated with a big black block that the information will be glued to when my aunt gets the cards and prepare then for the send.

I’m very happy with the simple but still nice look, only bad thing is that I’m now out of both white and black paper but another trip downtown might help that problem.

Mojo 181 in love version

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.

Presentbox: del 3

Här kommer box nummer 3. Denna är till Songül för att hon fick mig att släpa mig in till biblioteket lagom kontinuerligt.

Då jag inte riktigt vet vad hon tycker om blev boxen en ganska diskret och försiktig och förhoppningsvis tycker hon om den.

Pappren är Inkido av kollektionen Cartas. Jag har använt brunt papper som bas och creamfärgad matta till de mönstrade pappren för att ge boxen en lite mjukare look. Dekorationerna är creamfärgade pärlor och tygblommor. Etiketten är utstansad med nestabilities. Jag provade ytterligare en öppningsmekanism. Jag satte ihop höger och vänster sida med ett band som är knutet med knutar precis utanför öljetterna. Det är på detta band (vit/cream) som jag sedan fäst de två blommorna, en på vardera band. Sedan har jag knutit ett tunt brunt band runt de redan existerande banden. I det bruna bandet satte jag sedan två öljetter på ett avstånd så att boxen är stängd. Sedan satte jag en creamfärgad brad genom öljetten som en låsningsmekanism. Lite svårt att förklara men med hjälp av bilderna kanske det blir förståeligt.
