Jars for coffe and jam

In my family we use masonjars for many things, especially for coffee, tea and jam. After using the jars for a while we discovered that the jars that had coffee in them never could be used to anything else again. After cleaning them by hand or in the dishwasher they still smelled a lot like coffepowder and everything in the jar tastes like coffepowder. So we needed to mark the jars somehow (coffeeflawored jam isn’t very nice for pancakes…). I did have somevinylsheets and etchingcreame home so I made an mask with the vinyl and the Cole’s ABC die from Lawn Fawn. I think it turned out really good and will soon do the same for the tea and jam-jars.

Welcome Freja

2014-02-25So times just flies and our little princess is now soon four month old. So we decided to throw her e little welcome/name-party. It will only be for the closest family so I decided to actually make some simple cards.

I choose a simple and fast design that I really like. I got inspired by this “Merry and Bright”-card from Chari Moss. I made the striped paper with some cut-up scraps and thats why some of the cards are different colors, I just showed some of the cards (I made 12 all together). The “välkommen” (welcome) is printed with the same font I used on the inside. The cut-out letters are Cole’s ABC from Lawn Fawn.

Girly But no Pink Allowed

So here comes my first contribution as the DT member for Sweet Stampin’. The theme for this weeks challenge is Girly but no pink allowed.

Our sponsors for this week are Pollycraft which will give a lucky winner 5 digis.

We also have our Monthly sponsor Joanna Sheen that will give a £10 gift voucher.

—————————————————————————————————————————————————–

So onto my card; I usually don’t use Pink but just because of the challenge everywhere I look in my stash i see pink, and i have to admit that I have been very nervous to make this card and post so the process of this card have been a very hard one.So I got this lovely digi from Pollycraft called Cupcake Party and are featuring Celeste Amberglow. I don’t have a printer at home because it broke down like two (or more?) years ago so I normally print at a friends or my moms house. I think the nervousness got the better of me because the first print I didn’t bring copic-paper, the second one I destroyed when i was fussy-cutting and the third one I mangled in my cuttlebug… so after those sad attempt i deiced to make a serious run so I printed the dear Celeste like 10 times so I wouldn’t have to run over to our friend again and at the same time giving me some room for more mistakes (which of course i didn’t do now when i had the materials for it).

First when i saw this image I really wanted to make a bright and happy card so I found my Bo Bunny Peacock Lane collection and started to color. I have to admit that The card was far to dark and everything just looked a bit off so I had to start over. Luckily for me a new flash of inspiration came this Tuesday when my big order from the USA came. I had ordered a lot of new copics and several nice dies so I decided to us as much new things as possible. The new pens I got were from the 90-seriers so I went for the V90’s for the color-scheme on Celeste. I know that it’s dangerously close to pink but it’s purple so I think I can get away with it. To really bring out this dusty purple i deiced to go for all black and white on the card so all the other coloring (except the skin) is made with the cool grays.

I framed Celeste on my new Spellbinders Large Rectangles and Large Scalloped Rectangles and distressed the edged a bit with Weathered Wood. I then put my sentiment (which is a a tired minds wordplay on the cool grays I used and a nice sentiment for a young girls birthday) on the shapabilities double ended tags. Sense it’s a 10x15cm card I didn’t decorate it much but i did use soem brads and I ribbon just to give it something more. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn’s Critters in the snow stampset and I stamped it with Archival Brilliance Graphite Black.

Playing around

Some weeks ago i ordered Making frosty friends and the Critters in the snow-sets from Lawn Fawn. I saw them in podcast with Christine, i really feel in love with the cards she made so i wanted to do some similar (which is on the way).

But due to sickness, new job, christmascards and birthdays they have been on my desk, looking very sadly in my direction. And now when Björn is cooking i sat down and started to play with them and the Archival Brilliance Graphite Black that I got as a christmasgift from my brother. And i can only say WOW! I love them both! The snowmen are so fun to create and even if they are clearstamps that are just so good! They keep the ink and give such wonderful lines, it was a long time ago i got this worked up about just stamping, and the inkpad then… i love it! It smells a bit different then I’m use to but it get so black, all covering black! I just had to share it to the world!

Happy, happy, happy!
