A Birthday Card...



I made a birthday-card last weekend for my little nephew Edwin, he celebrated his 4th birthday. It's a simple card, a stamped sentiment on a card base of Bazzill Kraft paper and then I used a patterned paper by Sassafras Lass (Vintage Yummy), the edge also comes from that paper. I punched out a circle of turquoise card stock which became the base for the number four (Thickers by American Crafts, Daiquiri white).

Anyway, Edwin was happy with the card and the chocolate cake I'd baked for his birthday. The cake didn't last long:)

Happy Valentine's Day!

I'm wishing you all a wonderful Valentine's Day! Enjoy the moment and take the time to be with your loved ones. I know I will, I think DH has something planned:)

It's in many ways a big commercial event, and one can argue that it's all about money, but perhaps we need to be reminded to show appreciation for each other? Anyway, I enjoy this day...

Another Card for Valentine's Day...




Here's another card for All Hearts Day, as we call it in Sweden.
This time I've stamped both the sentiment (Happiness is... to have a friend like you) and "Henry the Hedgehog" with Color Box Fluid Chalk in color Dark Brown. I've colored the hedgehog-stamp with a blender pen and fluid chalk, some parts are colored with ZIG brushables.

The patterned papers comes from "Crazy Love" by Bo Bunny and the card base is Bazzill Kraft. Border Punch by Fiskars.

DH and I are going for a short walk to the local cafe now, I'm longing for some good coffee and perhaps a cookie or two. It's snowing madly outside though, isn't it time for spring soon?

Making Cards for Valentine's Day...


Hi there! Sorry about my long absence, my health issues makes me a really bad blogger. I haven't done much creative stuff lately but today I finally have something to show, a card for Valentine's Day. I'm in the process of making some cards for the big day, next week.

For this very simple card I've used a 6x6 paper-pad, "Crazy Love" by Bo Bunny. These small paper-pads are great for card-making! Big patterns are often difficult to use on cards, here the patterns are smaller and it's also economical, a 6x6 pad doesn't cost so much even though you get a lot of different patterns.

I've used a 2" circle punch to punch out the two larger circles from the same paper, I cut out with a scissor the smallest one. The sentiment (Thinking of You in Swedish) is stamped and then embossed with gold embossing powder.

I've turned into a paper scrapper at the moment, it's so fun!
But I've not forgotten about digi, I promise:)
