A Micely Cupcake for my grandfather

Det här kortet har jag gjort inför min morfars födelsedag i slutet av veckan.

När jag var liten och vi var uppe och hälsade på mormor och morfar tog alltid morfar fram lite olika verktyg, mest hammare och spik, och vi satt och hamrade och snickrade i evigheter. Det blev mest kostigta sammansättningar av olika bräder men jag har nog aldrig haft så roligt som vid de tillfällena. Därför försökte jag göra ett kort som skulle påminna om de stunderna.

För en närmare beskrvning av hur jag gjorde kortet se under den engelska delen.

This card is for my grandfather for his birthday on the 27th.. A couldn’t help myself so i choose on of my absolutely favorite stamps: the House Mouse Birthday Cupcake one.For the papers and the coloring I had a speciall paper in mind. The paper is the blue one from DCWV’s The Guy stack.

When i was little and spent time up with my grandparents my grandfather always gave me and my sister some nails, hammer, saw and some wood and we did put them together in all kinds of ways. I have to admit that that it really turned out nice or as something but we had so much fun. I did do a Kallaha-game once but that is the only finished thing i can remember. Whenever i see different carpenter tools I always think about him and their driveway, those times is really some of my most treasured memories and I did wanna get a part of them in this card. That background for the card is a part of the warm and fuzzy and warm aspect of the card, an feeling aspect:), and i do hope that bu sharing this i will qualify for this House Mouse Challenge, otherwise i will hope that the warm and fuzzy mice will due;).

All the edges have been distressed with either Tumbled Glass or Vintage Photo to get ride off all the harsh white lines. The brads in the corners have groves like a screw to match the tool-theme. For the shadowing on the cupcake-wrapping i used E39 and a lot of blenderpen. Then only thing i would like to caution about is that the paper I have used is all coated with some glossy material so making the shadows wasn’t that easy and the color just runs of the glossy parts.

So after a lot of christmas-cards i felt like making a card for my own pleasure and sense i really wanted to do a card with Sweet November’s Bubbles Lostlagoon.I just love her hair and she is the the only sitting figure i have so far so next time i will have to make something for her to sit on.

I first deiced that i wanted to use Bo Bunny’s Barefoot Bliss so I tried to color accordantly to the papers. I started our with the green tail and then kept going with the hair. I did want it to be a bit orange/yellow to match the hibiscus-flowers of the paper but i didn’t found a good combination due to the fact that i only have one orange so it got the be a bit more yellow. I don’t think it have enough contrast but that will have to be for the next time. The orange pen is an Copic original pen and i had a really hard time to blend it well when i used it direct to the paper, and i think it got a bit to soft when i used the tip to tip method with the Y17.

The frame for Bubbles is made with scalloped circles and circles nestabilities and the white oval have been embossed/letterpressed with the circles impressabilities. The tag is made with Tim Holtz’s Tiny Tab & tags and i backed the tag on a blue circle made with nestabilities circle. The stamp is from the text-set from Reprint (the swedish word for Thanks). The wave on the bottom is made with My Favorite Things Jumbo Scallop. The inside is made with the same wave.

All white Penny Black: Mouse with wishlist

So i just did my first Penny Black card for the order. I have for a long time now wanted to try to make a all white card and when Penny Black’s Saturday Challenge had an challenge of a white and silver card i just jumped on the challenge.

I did use two embossingfolders from provocraft, the Snowflakes one and the Swiss dots.  The image is on of the ones (and one of my favorites) from Penny Black’s Christmas Critters set.

The card is decorated with a white ribbon and some silver thread. I also used some rhinestones that gets a bit of silvery shine against the white aof the card.

Christmas hamster: card 3, last one

 So I’m done with the last House Mouse and hamster card of the order. This one is a more old-fashioned one and I wanted a white hamster on this one. I really like how the hamster turned out but i do think the mice look a bit tan beside him or her so if i had colored the hamster first i would probably have gone with a lighter skin-combo for the mice.

The papers are, as on the other two cards, from DCWV’s The Christmas Combo pack.

So now i will head over to the next part of the order that will be featuring some Penny Black stamps….

Copic: E21, E11, E13, E04, E93, R20, E41, E40, E43, E31, E33, E35, E39, E37, E35, R29, R39, C0, C2, 0

Christmas hamster: card 2

 So this morning I finished off the second House Mouse-hamster card.

The papers are, as in the first on, DCWV’s The cristmas Cambbo.. I did color the image with Copics again and this time I got very happy with the result on the orange tone on the hamster. This time I used YR01 instedad of E31. . Another addition i did was that i used more Snow marker compared to the first one so this time it shows off a lot.

For the sentiment I used You Do’s Svensk Jul-set and its mounted on  on Spellbinder’s Ribbontag Trio. Both the ribbontag and the image have been distressed with Peeled Paint. Then i decorated the card with some buttons.

I’m entering this card for

Other: Marvy Uchida’s snowmarker. Spellbinder’s Ribbon tag trio. Peeled Paint Distress Ink.

Christmas hamster: card 1

 So the next part of the order is 3 regular 10x15cm card (C6) featuring the Christmas House Mouse stamp with the hamster. So here comes the first:

The stamp is of coarse colored with copics and I’m really happy with the tone on the dark brown mouse. I don’t think that the hamster got a enough orange color so I will have to try another combo next time. The papers that is used is from DCWV’s The Christmas Combo stack (10x15cm). The greeting stamp is from Arkivet and is a Christmas text.

I did use a Inspirational Card Sketches sketch for the layout and i have tilted it on my site so it shows from which angle i did interpreted it. I also entered One Stop Challenge due to the fact that it’s three characters on the card.

Something that don’t really comes up on the photo is that on the santa-hat i did use a thin layer of my snow-marker to get some dimension.

Soft Teal/Red House Mouse

So for a day or two ago i started making a card from this weeks Midnight Madness sketch, due to the fact that it’s House Mouse that sponsors it.

I haven’t been able to stop flipping through Basic Gray’s Hello Luscious paperpack and i deiced to use the small print on it. I have loved this paper for a while but i have been a bit intimidated when i have been unable to see a nice match straight away but i do think i succeeded now.

The main stamp is from House Mouse’s set Birthday: Balloon and the sentiment is from the set Spring: Dip. The image is as usual colored with copics. I Have tried to make some long-furred mouses lately but I’m not that happy with these ones.

The ribbon that goes across the card on the top half is an adhesive lace-ribbon that i bought the other day from Panduro. It was a pack with cream-colored ribbon and laces. I really like it but it bothers me a bit that the adhesive strips shows underneath the lace on some of them.

Copic: R39, R29, RV34, V000, E00, E21, E51, E11, E40, E41, N7, N5, N3, N1, C2, 0, E35, E33, E31

a Wintery and Cheesey Mouse

So here comes the continuation of last night’s post. This is the blue House Mouse birthdaycard that was ordered.

I were looking through my stash of papers after some nice blue ones and came across Bo Bunny’s midnight Frost and all the love i had for it last winter blossomed again. One of the requests for this card was to have a “congratulations” on the front but i really didn’t think it would fit in an nice way so i hope that will do.

The rhinestones is in a pale blue to match the card, and the ribbon is a baby blue satin ribbon. The mat for the image is not by a cardstock but by a purple paper from the Midnight Frost collection.

The coloring is made with copics as usual. The paper the is wrapped around the cheese have been colored in the same way but the “inside”-part is heavily faded with the blender pen to get a brighter and more metallic look.

Copic: Y17, Y08, Y21, B32, B21, B45,V17, E00, E51, E21, E11, E04, E33, E35, E37, N9, N7, N5, N3, N1

Second golf-card

So here is the second golf-card i made. I used the same image as the first card.

This card is made using this weeks Mojo Monday and papers from Basic Gray’s collection Life of the Party. It is suppose to be a birthday card for a man so i thought this papers were just perfect! I especially love the gifts on the small paper.

Copic: E00, E51. E21, E11, 0,E29, E49, E07, N1. N3, N5, N7, E31, E35, E37, YG17, YG13, YG11, RV34, RV23, RV21, C10, C8, C6

First golf-card

So I got an order for three cards, 2 golf cards and one blue house mouse card. So after a long days of crafting i have finished the two golfcards and the HM card only needs to have the image mounted.

This card is for my client’s husband on his birthday. So i choose my papers and embellishments from Basic Gray’s Marjolaine collection. The layout is from last weeks Sketch Saturday, but as usual when i start up a project midweek the challenges expired, but I’m really happy with the look. As you can see I once again tried to photograph after sunset so the photo is a bit blurry and the colors are a bit off. But the left side of the card is most true.

Sense I don’t have a golf-themed stamp i surfed the web a bit and found this cute little guy. He is from a coloring site, mainly for kids (you can find it here). I printed it on one on my Copic papers. Unfortunately the printer i used is a bit odd and refused to print it in black so i got an image in dark red so I traced all the lines with my black copic multiliner. At some parts you can still see hints of red but i hope the recipient won’t.

Copic: YG11, YG13, YG17, G29, G85, B91, B93, B95, B97, C10, C8, C6, 0, E00, E51, E21, E11, E57, E29, E49. Black multiliner.

Paper and embellishments are from Basic Gray’s Marjolaine collection.
