Purple Kitty Katastrophe

This Tuesday it’s my baby-sisters birthday and i have been working on this card for quite a while now. I started to colors this like months ago in this nice purple tone. I recently found it just laying around so I deiced to make i for my sister, it’s a very fitting color and image for her. So I did the last coloring, like the hair, to suit my sister even better. The haircolor I chose I one that i think mimics the color my sister have right now. The frame for Kitty is made with nestabilities small labels and i started out with a white paper and then distressed with weathered wood. I do now own this stamp, I stamped up a couple on my copic-course in September so I have two left I think.

Anyway, i did use this weeks Sketch Saturday-sketch for my layout and i tried to keep with the purple tones from the coloring. The purple papers are from Maja Design’s collection “Ska vi ta en fika?” and the gray paper is from the Little black dress collection. All the papers have been distressed with either Dust Concord or Weathered Wood.

The top embellishment is a black satin ribbon that i tied some knots and the bottom one is a border made with Martha Stewart’s borderpunch Modern Garland. The butterflies are some fabric butterflies in pink and blue that I made black with a permanent marker and just stapled on. They have a bit of the shimmer of the old color which gives them a nice depth. The greeting is using some alphabet-pearls from Panduro that i glued in place with some glossy accent.

The inside is made with the same paper and idea as the outside and I left a nice big space for the greeting.

Glitery, Pink Florence

 

Here comes a card I’ve been working on the last couple of weeks. It’s an order for a friend of my moms and it’s for a birthday girl turning 10. The criteria was to use Kraftin’ Kimmie’s Florence and make it sparkle.

I started out doing this card for like two weeks ago and didn’t finish it until yesterday. Every time i go past my craft-corner i get drawn in by all my wedding inventions that needs some attention so it have been hard focusing on this card. I started out bu choosing this papers from Bo Bunny’s collection Vicki B, i love the vibrant colors and i think they would be super for a little girl. From that i colored and paper pieced her. So for a week ago or something i stared to think about the layout and fortunately for me Kraftin Kimme’s Challenge blog had a sketch up that i liked so i used it. Unfortunate for me when i entered the blog yesterday it seems a week have passed and a new challenge has begun. And happily for me it turned out that this weeks challenge is paper piecing so i can enter it anyway, whoho!

To add the glittery part of the card and to make some texture i used a lot of soft, glittery flocking from You Do. On the striped paper i made one green and one pink stripe flocked and on the paper with the circles i flocked all the circles that were pink, orange and green, to match the flocking i choose. I also added the pink flocking on the headband on Florence. As a last step i punched some flowers with EK Success’ Retro flower and flower power punch and flocked them in different colors. I thought the flocking was thick enough to cover what ever cardstock i used, but it wasn’t really true so i ended up remaking it with green, orange and pink cardstock to make a better coverage. I tried to take another photo of the flowers to show the nice shine and fussyness.

Fruti Fun in gray and antique yellow

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

Aqua, Pink and Cream Puff-heart Dragon

Todays card is one inspired by Whiff of Joy’s challenges, that i found a few days ago, and it’s for my dear friend Eva for being my light and inspiration!

Sense i only have one Whiff of Joy stamp that became an easy choise, and it’s not getting harder by the fact that it is one of my favorites. The challenge this week was “aqua, pink and cream” (#104) so i decided to give it a try (even if i just realized that it’s closed now but im very happy with the card). The image is of course Whiff of Joy’s Puff-heart Dragon and i colored him with both promarkers and copics. I did go over the colored image with my blender to get the more distressed look. The background of it is made with weathered wood and tumbled glas.

The papers are all from Bo Bunny’s collection Sophie, and i just love these papers. All the papers have been inked and distressed with either Broken China, Worn lipstick or Antique Linen. I did paperpierced a lot on this card and all the odd shapes like the circle and the arrow-like one on the cream paper is made with Gina K’s paperpiercing-templates. The sentiment is also from Gina K and is from the Fanciful labels. On the pink paper i also scored at 0,5cm apart to give it more texture. The border at the cream papers

The inside is made by the same papers and are inspired by Donna Wardel‘s card-insides. Unfortunately my white ribbons has run out so i used one matching the cardstock instead.

I’m entering this card into A spoon full a sugar nr 158- Things with wings.

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.
