Hugeble Boo

2013-02-17, 2

So after my remake I decided to make a card with my Boo stamps- that i adore but haven’t used yet.

The card is 11×15 cm and I based the card of this weeks Sketch Saturday layout. I just love the Boo-stamps and especially this one. When i see the ghost I just wanna hug them both. I tried to colors the doll in standard halloween-colors but I kept the card fairly colorless. The paper is from Doodlebug’s collection and the sentiment is from AmyR Sentiments.

Baby Blue Little Lorry Bear

This weekend we will celebrate Oskar’s first birthday. Gosh the time flies by but it’s gonna be fun to see everyone again and see Oskar blow his candle for the first time.

A few weeks ago i found this darling papers from Doodlebug and I just loved it (especially the owl-pattern that I didn’t use here). So I wanted to do a really traditional baby-boy-card so I just dug out all the baby-blue things i had, lots of glitter and stars.

The image is from Lili of the Valley and I love how the bear turned out! It makes me happy to look at him. I did place the “1” on the car to symbolize Oskar’s first birthday. The “1” is cut in the same blue cardstock as the rest of the card but I colored it with some E43 to dull it down to fit the rest of the image.

The card have been decorated a bit with yellow stickles on some of the yellow dots on the background-paper and the ballon have been coated with some stardust. The ribbon is a regular baby blue satin ribbon that I embellished a bit with a blue button and some green embroidery-thread. The ribbon is not glued down all around and on this photo it have slided down a bit, I didn’t notice when I took the photo and don’t wanna take a new one.

Floral Angels

Welcome to another challenge over at the Sweet Stampin’. This weeks theme is Inspired by a Song or Film. Our monthly sponsor with a £10 voucher is Joanna Sheen. And this weeks weekly sponsor is Papelitos Stamps who will give 3 digis for our first place-winner and 1 digi to the second place-winner.

My card is inspired by the movie “Just like heaven” starring Reese Witherspoon and Mark Ruffalo. This is one of my favorite romantic movies, and I don’t really know why. But it’s perfect when you want a romantic one with a hint of sadness:). It’s about a boy that sees a ghost and it turned out that the ghost is girl who is in a coma. When i saw the clouds of this adorable stamp I just thought about this movie. Entangled in the plot is a garden and it was the garden that inspired my papers for this card. The blue-ish paper that i used also has an floral pattern, but it’s tone on tone with glossy details.

The Stamp is from Papelitos Stamps and is called Angels Love. I really like it, it’s just so cute, but i have to admit I’m a bit disappointed due to the resolution it it. I did print it fairly small but I can see pixels which I don’t like.I tried something new when i Colored the hair. Both the girl and the boy is based on the Cool Grays, but the girl have a base-layer of green, and the boy has one in blue. i really like how different it turned out.

The papers is from KaiserCraft and I bought this paperpack due to the floral paper long ago and just thought it would be perfect. The layout is inspired by this weeks layout over at the Sketch N Stash.

To accompany the card I also made a tealight-box. The though from the beginning was to make a tealight-card but I actually ran out of cardstock and couldn’t find a matching one downtown so it became a card and box instead. The box has an acetate-window that have been embossed with my swiss dot embossingfolder, but It might be a bit hard to see. A long time ago i made myself a template for the tealight-card so I did use this measurements for it.

The inside is made but it’s fairly regular so I didn’t get a photo.

Earthy Sympathy Bugs

I have for a long time wanted to use the Sympathy Bugs from Wee Stamps, but every time i start out coloring I have to put them aside to complete another project. But finally I used them. This card is for a fellow teacher at my school that turned 50 last week. But this Monday we will celebrate her so I volunteered to make the card.

I colored the bugs to match this beautiful papers from Basic Gray’s collection Cappella. I just love the feminine tone of the papers and the patterns, without it getting to girly. All the papers have been inked with Memento’s Rich Cocoa, I also sew around the edges with a cream thread. I still haven’t gotten the hang of the sewing. I doesn’t get straight and i have a hard time to see when I should stop at the corners, but i could cover up the worse mistakes. I used this weeks sketch from Sketch Saturday and jazzed it up a bit. The sketch is very like how i start out most of my cards, and also very similar to the one I did for Theo last week so I tried to add some interest by not letting the lower part go all the way to the bottom.

To frame my bugs I used the Lacy ovals from Spellbinders. The bugs are actually colored on a separate piece that I then cut out and glued onto the oval. I really like how the wings got dimension like this, they don’t just go outside the frame, they also goes up a bit. The edge of the oval have been distress with Antique Linen and paper pierced.

I have embellished the cards with one of the corner-treatments from provocraft’s vintage die and some brads from my stash. The decorative edge at the green paper is made with the my edgeabilities; the border is from the classic triple scallop and the insert is from the classic Ric Rac. The bow is tied as a Nellie knot and the button on top is from the basic gray set Hello Luscious. The sentiments or rather the letters are from Quickutz’s alphabet harvest. On the bugs antennas and the wings I added some diamond Stickles, and on the flowery puffs I painted with some pearl Glimmer Mist so add some glitter and glimmer.

The inside is made with the same papers and the same idea, just switching up the colors a bit.

Next week is my baby brother’s 22 birthday and of coarse I have to make him a nice card.

Last week i bought the This and That: Charming from Echo Park and the paper with the fans just got my thinking of summer. I also love this collection because it works perfectly for masculine cards.

The image is a Happy Hoppers called Bunny Cruise. This is the first time I use it and I have to admit that I had a real blast coloring the bunny. On the other side i did two failed attempts on the bath-ring, but that was more my copics fault then the image. I had a hard time finding a color-combination that would match this papers. The image is a bit more yellow, especially on the green, due to the fact that the photo was taking during sunset. The image is as usual colored with copics and the clouds are Tumbled Glass.

The corner decoration at the top right corner is one of the corner-decorations in the Vintage set from provocraft. But the part you see is only the most inner part, the rest i cut away. The ribbon is tied with a nellieknot, and I think that really gives something extra on the inside of the card, i never decorate that side anyway. The stitching is made with some embroidery-thread, and i spaced the holes with the Tim Holtz ruler.

The inside is just continuing at the same theme, and the stitching.

Marine birdy

So tonight i wanted to make a card for my mother in laws boyfriend. His birthday is in a couple og week, but he gave me the perfect reason to use my new stampset By the sea from Gina K and this beutiful papers for Maja Design.

I Wanted to make a scene for this card, i have been very inspired by Theresa Momber and her scenes lately and i just have to get some more sets to make better and more naturescenes.

Anyway. This card is made with the though of Gothenburg’s seaside, and thats why I bought this papers from the beginning. The layout is from this weeks Gina K challenge.

I have to admitt that im not happy with the sky at all. The darker part is made with faded jeans but on the sky it only came of as gray wish made my spring sky to a bit more stormy but it will have to be for this time. I do like the sea but next time i think i will make a less straight horizon.

Mom’s Birthday-mermaid

 So last weekend was my mother’s birthday but i hadn’t had time to make her a card so i have spent a bit of this week (coloring and cutting) and weekend.

As it was for my mother i just had to use a mermaid or some fishes, so i choose my favorite mermaid, the Sweet November Bubbles Lostlagoon. Both me and my mom really love the blue/green color, she more for the mint green and me more for the petrol, so I decided to use Bo Bunny’s collection Peacock Lane. I tried to color Bubbles accordingly to the papers. I used BG45 and BG49 for the hair and i have to say that i love these pens, the blend so nice and give a such nice vibrant color – I need to use them more often from now one. The pearls in her hair have been colored with a white gelly roll-pen. On the tail I used like the only combination of yellow/green that i have but i didn’t feel happy with it so i tried to give it a bit more texture by making a crisscross-pattern. But I still didn’t like it, it looked to dull so i covered the tail with some crackle accent. To make Bubbles company i stamped and colored Seamoore and Lio that are companions for some of the other mermaid but i thought that this would be perfect for my mother.

For the sentiment I used AmyR’s underwater sentiment stamped with some Grape Gelly Memento Ink. The 47 is made with the smallest scalloped  and normal nestabilities circle and the Provocraft’s alphabet Babyface. The ribbon is tied with a Nellie-knot, I saw Heather making on on a video, you can find it here, and I just loved it. I have always had a problem with using sheer ribbon due to the fact that i don’t like the adhesive showing through and i want the ribbon to be at least a bit fastened- so this was a great solution, and it worked out great for this card!

Lastly i hope my mother can forgive me for putting her age on her card:D

A New Year and top 7 from 2011

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

Masuline Train

A House Mouse Graduation-card

Theo’s Baptism-card

 

So my lovely godson Theo will get baptist this weekend and  he will be officially mine and Björn’s godson, so i made a card to go with his gift. We have bought cufflinks ingraved with “Theo” and I hope he will like them when he gets older.

I sat a long time thinking about what stamp I could use for this card, I always think it so hard for a little guy. But i finally decided to use Magnolia’s Parrot and the Jungle leaves (from the pet collection). I had a bit of a problem to make the masking to get the parrot sit on the leaves. I had to first stamp the body of the Parrot and then masking it off. Then i stamped the leaves on top and masked then off also so i could stamp the feathers so they would peek out from underneath the leaves. The parrot and the leaves are of coarse colored with copics. I didn’t have any muted blue-greens so i used a lot of gray over so dull it out a bit.  The frame is Spellbinder’s deckled rectangles and i made the sky behind with a combination of Faded jeans and Broken china.

The Papers that i used are from My minds Eye Out of the blue collection and the Fly a Kite collection. And I just love the trains – they are the reason i bought them from the beginning. The letters for “Theodor” is Provocraft’s Baby Face alphabet. The black brads is some generic kind that i buy lots of and the orange ones, bot big and small, is from Paper Wishes Disney-set.

Holly Jolly Deer

I have to admit that i have fallen head over heels with the deer and the squirrls from the Greeting Farm’s Forest friends. I did stamp up some during the scrapgathering but im starting to run low on them,so i just HAD to order the set for myself – a good use for the money i got from my grandma in cristmas gift. Some other (lots…) find it’s way into my ordering-baskets so I can’t wait for my mailbox to be full of goodies, but it will probobly be for after the 7th when i get home again from the baptism of my godson (that’s the card that is comming up).

I have been thinking a lot about this card, especially the papers and I have been wondering what would be suitable as a focal to them, so after some thinking i decided that the Deer would be good- as a raindeer-feel. So i colored the Deer with Copics, and got happy with it and then started to pull a couple of papers from the Holly Jolly Christmas-collection from Echo Park, then i got some cardstock to match and put it all in front of me. And then i spilled the biggest glass of milk over it all! Let’s just say that it was annoying and that i dried all the papers with my embossing-gun. All paper was ok, a bit wobbly but ok, except for the deer so i had to redo him, i have to say that the second one got a bit better- but still….

I used a Cute Card Thursday’s Sketch for the layout, just changing a bit. I also followed the colors of this weeks Shabby Tea Room.

The decorations on this card is mostly the rhinestones and the ribbon but i also put a hint of diamond stickles on some of the christmaslight-paper. The background of the Deer is made with some nestabilities (scalloped and normal oval) and the white paper is embossed with Provocraft’s embossingfolder Snowflakes. The greeting is stamped with the distress Ink Gathered Twigs.
