Season’s Greetings!

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:

Season's Greetings

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.

Season's Greetings 2

You find Chupa’s card HERE.

And here is my big boy who turned 11 on Christmas Eve. ♥♥♥

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…

LESSology #8 Altered Frame

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.

Tavla 1

The inner part of the Frame got some fun Puffies from The Rubber Café, and the lower corner is decorated with diecut leafs and a Poinsettia made of stamps from Heartfelt Creations.

Tavla 2

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…

Tesa vecka 50

The papers used are from the I Believe collection and are called In Santa (purple) and In Angels (white). Both awesome! :) The stamp used is from Prickley Pear Rubber StampsGreat little One.

You find the challenge, DT inspiration and linking tool HERE!

Have a beautiful Saturday!!!

Happy Lucia!

Today we are celebrating Lucia and I thought I'd share the simplest card ever with a super cute stamp from Anette Blåberg/Tisdagar med Tina with Lucia theme.


Yesterday it was my blog day over at The Rubber Café. Pugs have a special place within the heart of this company (to say the least - you HAVE to check out their blog and webpage!!!! ). And of corese there are stamps sets dedicated to the awesomeness of pugs. Like A Pug For The Holidays.



Have a beautiful Lucia day!

Prickley Pear Monday

I have such a fun Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps project to share today I can hardly wait. :)

Snökula 1

I’ve made a snow globe scenery using my Pumpkin and Snowman Clear Stamps Set, Pumpkin and Snowman Die and Evergreen with Star.

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!

Snökula 2

The snowman is soooo cute!

Snökula 3

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…

The Prickley Pear Blog is filled with DT inspiration! Some pretty amazing cards!!! You find it HERE!

Thank you for stopping by!!!!

A card and a few Christmas Cones

CASE Study has another amazing card this week and I simply had to play!

TMT ljus

Lots of layers, I used two cardstocks on this one… Fab stamp by Anette Blåberg/Tisdagar med Tina.

You can find the original card HERE made by this month’s muse Amy Sheffer.

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.

Just a note

Hi!
Yihaa! We got our first snow last night. FINALLY! And it was still there when we woke up. A super thin little layer, but enough for the boy to make a couple of snowballs (which he put in the freezer with the wording "I don't trust this weather, mom").

I'm blogging on Svensk Scrapbooking blog today, we are showcasing some fab dies from Marianne Design this month.


It's such a beautiful frame! And the flower dies that come in the same set are perfect for making 3D layered flowers from in no time.


The flower is layered and worked on and then sprayed with glimmer mist. That makes it shine and when it dries it gets more sturdy.


The butterfly and sentiment stamps are from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps - the Clearly Beautiful Butterfly Set (which is my favorite right now - might be a tiny little bit tired of Christmas cards right now...)

This is my take on this week's card over at CASE Study. The card is absolutly STUNNING, made by December muse Amy Sheffer.

Are you in for something FUN!?!
There is a mega hop going on all week with manufacturers like The Rubber Café, October Afternoon and Sizzix. Super PRIZES.... All info HERE!

Card Patterns #144

Hi!

There is a new fun sketch up over at Card Patterns!

Print

The sponsor is My Craft Spot

And they carry the best twine and hand dyed ribbon there is! :)

Here is my take.

CP 144 Tesa

I used the new Warren & Friends stamp from The Rubber Café called Cuteness! Donovan & Warren. I adore these two.

CP144 detalj

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.

Warren wreath

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.

Warren Wreath insida

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!   Pepparkakor1

He needs a hair cut. AGAIN!

Now We’re off to a Harry Potter Movie Marathon. Need to get some pop corns popping!

Riddersholm’s Sketch Challenge #3

Happy Friday!!!

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!

For my card I teamed up my two favorite products – Riddersholm Design’s papers and Prickley Pear stamps. Yummy! With the addition of a new fabbie doily die!

Tesa v48

I simply adore these snowflake papers in white, beige and purple from the I believe line!

Tesa v 48 2

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!

Tesa v 48 3

We hope that you will play with us! All info about the challenge can be found HERE!
