Well I am still so excited about all my new stamp set and things and usually that means I don´t know where to start. But this time I am forcing myself to just dig in and get one stamp set out and just play around. So today I am making a card using the stamp set hedgehugs. A very cute set and I am sure I will use it again.

I have thick very vanilla as my card base then a layer of basic black and then a layer of crumb cake. On the crumb cake layer I have stamped the flowers from the stamp set hedgehugs in sahara sand. Then I stamped the hedgehogs in chocolate chip and early espresso. The squirrel is stamped in sahara sand. I cut them out with a stitched circle and then cut out a scalloped circle in basic black under the stitched one. The ribbon is in bermuda bay, thought the card needed a little colour. The sentiment is stamped on crumb cake cardstock and punch out with the word window punch, added a basic black layer punch with the modern label punch. Finished the card with som wink of Stella on the hedgehog and the squirrel.

Have a great Saturday!

New toys...


Yesterday, just as I came home UPS came with my parcel of goodies. It is the big Spring/summer/Sale-A-Bration going on and I found so many fun new things! Here you can see all the goodies. Can´t wait to play with everything!

The other day I found this video from Jen, you can find her video here. She made 3 different cards using same stamp set, Party Pandas. What a cute set. So when my stamp set arrived yesterday I had to try the card.

I have black cardstock as base for my card. Then a layer of whisper white and then the bubbles and fizz designer series paper. Stamped the panda with black ink and also the sentiment on a stitched circle. Under I have a calypso coral circle and then a black scalloped circle. And all those circles is on top of a doilie. Painted the pandas envelope with a calypso coral marker.

Have a great Friday!

Lift me up and playful backgrounds...


Today´s card was inspired by a video I found on YouTube, you can find the video here. I changed my colours and a couple of other things, but that is the beauty of the craft world, being able to change to your liking or because you don´t have everything just same.

So I used smoky slate as card base and then added a layer of In color 2016-2018 designer series paper (DSP) in the colours flirty flamingo and dapper denim. On the dapper denim I stamped on the whisper white layer with the stamp set playful background. First just the outline and then stamped off twice for the solid image. Punched out a starburst circle with smoky slate and then stamped the sentiment in dapper denim on a 3/4" x 3 1/2" strip of whisper white paper. To add the illusion of another layer I followed the edges with the dapper denim Stampin write marker.  Stamped the hot air balloon in flirty flamingo and then cut out with matching framelit. To finish it off I added some rhinestones.

On the flirty flamingo card did the same as I did on the dapper denim card.  I don´t know which one of then I like best thou. I love flirty flamingo but I like the how the dapper denim turned out too.

Have a great Thursday!

Penned and painted....


Today I am using one of my favorite stamp sets, penned and painted. Unfortunately it has retired but there is a lot of inspiration on Pintrest and Youtube for me to use.

I have used thick whisper white as my card base and then daffodil delight and melon mambo cardstock for layers. Stamped the flowers, leaves and ladybird in archival black ink. Then I have watercoloured the flowers with melon mambo and daffodil delight. The ladybirds with melon mambo and then the leaves with tranquil tide and lemon lime twist. Also added som wink of Stella on the flowers. Finished the decorations with some glitter enamel dots. The happy birthday stamp is from the rose wonder set stamped in tranquil tide.

Have a great Tuesday!

Love Pintrest...


I just love Pintrest! You can find so much inspiration there. Right now I am looking a lot at Pintrest and YouTube to find some inspiration. Today´s card is an inspiration from Pintrest.

I am using the stamp set carousel birthday on today's card. Used thick whisper white as my card base. The colours I used is Peekaboo peach, calypso coral and bermuda bay. The peekaboo peach is stamped off once to make it a little softer under the calypso coral. The designer series paper (DSP) is from the cupcakes and carousels DSP pack. I also used the triple banner-punch to flag the end on the DSP. The bow is made with some taffeta ribbon. On the inside I stamped with a stamp from same stamp set, carousel birthday

Have a great Monday!
