Hi! Hope you are all having a wonderful Christmas! :) Ours has been great. It’s been filled with birthday celebration, family and good food and lots and lots of love. A little short though… Tomorrow it’s back to work again and it’s crazy. Totally crazy. I hope I will find more time to scrap than I did the last couple of weeks though. I miss it!!! And the blog tours… Need to get back to those! Good for my soul! :)
First card I’ve made in two weeks is for SCS Featured stamper challenge. Today’s featured stamper is one of my absolute favorite card makers – Chupa. One amazingly talented lady. And I loooove the card that came out of this scary adventure:
The stamps used are all from The Rubber Café. Warren & Frosty are the cutest couple around. :) I colored them with distress inks and cut out and mounted on a background stamped with 18th Century Proclamation and inked up with some Tea Dye Distress ink. The papers are from MME.
You find Chupa’s card HERE.
And here is my big boy who turned 11 on Christmas Eve. ♥♥♥
He is one happy boy, he got himself a Play Station 3, something he NEVER thought would happen. :):):) Spoiled rotten. ♥
Thanks for stopping by!!!!
Happy Sunday! We are having such a beautiful day here – a bit chilly and a blue sky with a wonderful SUN! Don’t remember when I last saw that one… I’ll take my boy for a walk after lunch and enjoy the weather!
I have this week’s Card Patterns’ card to share. It’s very special since it is my last as a member of the CP Design Team. I have had six wonderful months on the team and I’ll miss it so much!!! But – I’ll play along and the new team that will start right after the holidays are one awesome bunch of talented ladies… Loads of inspiration to be expected!
This week’s sketch is wonderful! And our sponsor is Independent Stampin’Up Demonstrator Catherine Pooler!
Here is my take – lots of yellow. Starting to long for spring already…
The beautiful papers are from Stampin’Up, provided by Catherine Pooler. I’m also using Scalloped Circle Die, Clearly Beautiful Butterfly Set, Scalloped Circles Spring Clear Stamps Set and Look For Beauty red rubber stamp from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps.
Thank you all for a super FUN term! I’ll miss it so much!
I have a second card to share. One I did this morning for my co worker whose nephew got engaged last month. She wanted something sweet. Hope this is sweet enough.
Have a wonderful Sunday!
Thanks for stopping by!
Hi! A new challenge is up at LESSology blog and here is my project - a few days late and a dollar short… Well, busy life right now! :)
The #8 Challenge is all about altering FRAMES!
Soooo, I brought out an old goldish colored frame I got at a flee market ages ago and decided to frame one of the Vintage Chrismtas tags from Riddersholm Design. So a Vintage frame it is. I went over it with two coats of Gesso before I added an uneven coat of Crackle Paint - Antique Linnen. I wanted a more white color so I gave it another coat of Gesso before inking the edges with chalk.
The LESSology Blog is filled with awesome frame inspiration from the Design Team and we’d looove to see you play along with us! All info HERE!!!
RIddersholm Design has a new sketch challenge up and running!
I really loved this sketch, perfect for the last minute cards…
You find the challenge, DT inspiration and linking tool HERE!
Have a beautiful Saturday!!!
I have such a fun Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps project to share today I can hardly wait. :)
Totally hopeless to photograph but you get the picture… The base was originally a bright pink and I’ve painted it with gesso but had to cover it with some outside decoration to make it look ok. Everything is glued down with Glossy Accent so it will stick how many times you shake the globe to get the snow flying!
The snowman is soooo cute!
The background is stamped with the Evergreen with Star rubber stamp on water color paper. It’s heat embossed with a sparkling white embossing powder and then colored with Distress Stains Peeled Paint and Shabby Shutters. Some sparkling mist finish it off. The ribbon outside was white but colored in with Distress Stains Peeled paint, so the colors match in real life, but on the photos not so much…
Thank you for stopping by!!!!
CASE Study has another amazing card this week and I simply had to play!
Lots of layers, I used two cardstocks on this one… Fab stamp by Anette Blåberg/Tisdagar med Tina.
Svensk Scrapbooking’s November alter challenge – to make Christmas Cones - was sponsored by Scrapgalen (a great swedish web shop). I got this awesome inspiration package with Jillibean Soup papers and stickers and the cutest little clothes pins and burlap hearts. I just realized I never shared them here so here they are.
Thank you for stopping by! Hope your weekend is/has been a good one!
I loved this week’s trigger over at the Moxie Fab World!
The rustic white and all the colorful ornaments spoke to me and I decided to go for a CAS card using the Christmas Tree Trimmers from YouDo.
Thanks for stopping by!
There is a new fun sketch up over at Card Patterns!
The sponsor is My Craft Spot
And they carry the best twine and hand dyed ribbon there is! :)
Here is my take.
A little close up. I colored it with Distress inks and added some glossy accents on their noses and eyes. And some glitter pen sparkle on the presents and ribbons.
And when I had my inks and stamps at hand, I made another CAS card. This time with the Deck the Halls stamp.
I teamed him up with some Spellbinders nestabilities – Circles and Lacey Circles. I thought he was so cute and I liked the cleanness of the card so I didn’t want to mess the front with a sentiment. I put it inside instead.
Both sentiment and image are from the Christmas Tidings set.
We had an hour of garden work this morning. It was absolute horror. Trying to catch the leafs in a storm isn’t easy. But that’s what happens when you are a master in procrastination. At one point you HAVE to do it. (and that point was met like three weeks ago but we haven’t been home…). Anyway, it’s done and my boy and I spent the rest of the day with baking ginger bread. Love this yearly tradition, we play Christmas music, goof around and make awesome ginger breads!
He needs a hair cut. AGAIN!
Now We’re off to a Harry Potter Movie Marathon. Need to get some pop corns popping!
Thanks for stopping by!!!
It’s wonderful to see the end of this week coming! :) It’s been a good one. Lots of work and actually had some time to make a few cards too! :) And play with my boy. He told me yesterday after an evening spent at the shooting range that he likes to hang with me. I do believe it’s the ice cream treat talking. But still…
It’s time to reveal this weeks sketch over at Riddersholm!
I so loved working with this sketch! Fun and so many possibilities. I actually tweaked it quite a bit but I think you still see the main elements in it!
I simply adore these snowflake papers in white, beige and purple from the I believe line!
Check out the wintery butterfly! It’s from the Clearly Beautiful Butterflis Set from Prickley Pear. It’s heat embossed with color box ink and clear embossing powder. Love the beautiful snowflakes and the text that reads Hope Love Joy!
We hope that you will play with us! All info about the challenge can be found HERE!
And here is the full blog hop list:
Dina, Selma, Karen Taylor, Olga, Tesa (that's ME!), Marsha, Carla, Debbie and Linda!
This Monday is for sure a MONDAY. Yikes. Anyway, for me, it’s soon thank you very much. :)
I have a Prickley Pear card to share today. I needed a break from all the seasonal cards so I went for something non Christmasy.
The Prickley Pear Design Team has made loads of wonderful cards and other projects. You can find it HERE!

Hi! Happy Saturday! Hope you are having a great weekend! We do - visiting my parents. We’ve spent the day with games, a walk in some mighty windy weather (storm coming tomorrow!) and some crafting. My mom and I did a never ending card for a friend. Now a delish dinner of lamb and wine awaits. Yummy!!!
I LOOOOVE the sketch of the week over at Card Patterns!
And we have a great new sponsor – The Craft’s Meow
The stamps sent to me hasn’t arrived yet, stupid, stupid postal service! :( But check out the Card Pattern’s blog cause the rest of the team has used som mighty fab clear stamps from the Craft’s Meow on their cards!!!
Here is my take:
