Hello everybody! How are you doing? I hope everything is fine with you. I've been having a pretty busy week, so I am looking forward to the weekend.

Today I would like to share with you a birthday card. I'm participating in a birthday card swap so I need to stock up on those. ;)

For this card I used gorgeous Maja design papers and some white cardstock. I made the flowers myself - to make them I used white foamiran, white pearl stamens and RosyDot AC3 die.

I decorated the card with some pearls, trim and sequins. To add some dimension to my card I used foam pads between different layers.

So much from me today. Have a beautiful day! xx

Happy 60th birthday

Good morning everybody! How are you doing? Did you do anything special this weekend? We decided to take advantage of the beautiful sunny day and go on a short trip on Saturday. It was really nice. And yesterday we went for a long(er) walk around the town. 

I want to remind you that we have a sketch challenge going on at The sketchy challenges blog. I hope you will come and play with us.

Here's the card I made...

One of my relatives celebrated his 60th birthday in September and this is the card I made for him. Since it was a card for a guy I didn't want to add too many embellishments, but I couldn't stay away from pearls. *ooops*

For the card I used Maja design papers and different die cuts to make the card more "elegant". I think this card is pretty self explinatory, but if you have any questions, feel free to ask. :)

Have a beautiful day!

Happy world cardmaking day

Heya! Did you know it was a World cardmaking day today? I hope you managed to get some free time to go to your craftroom and play with your papers, inks, stamps etc. I did get to play with mine a little and as soon as I write this I plan to go play a little more. Christmas is fast approaching and I still need to make maaaaany more Christmas cards to send to my friends and family members. How are you doing with your Christmas cards? All done yet? Or haven't even started? Or maybe you are half-way through? Well, not matter how far alon are you (or even if you haven't started yet), you still have some time to play with your Christmas supplies. ;)

This is my most recent Christmas card.

Not really typical Christmas colours, rigth? Well, I've had these kraft/gold papers in my stash for a while and I really like how shiny they are so I thought I would use them on one of my Christmas cards this year. And I just happened to have some mint cardstock on my table when I was looking for the paper to use with the kraft one... I quite liked the colours together, so I went ahead and created this card. What do you think? Yay or nay? 

The Christmas ornaments are a Magnolia rubber stamp and the sentiment and the snowflakes around it are The Greeting Farm stamps. I coloured the image with pencils and raised it on foam pads for some extra dimension.

I decorated the card with some pearls, lace and doilies. Unfortunately you can't see this in the pictures, but I used Wink of Stella on my image (the ornaments) so it's really sparkly in person.

Have a wonderful day! xx

A super girly birthday card

Good morning! It's my turn to post something for the Foamiran Wednesday on Magnolia-licious blog, so I want to share with you the card I made.

 It's a birthday card I made for a friend of mine. She likes pink, cute images and all those girly things (lace, pearls etc.), so I made sure I included a lot of those on the card. ;)

I just love these pretty Lemon Craft papers. I think they are perfect for making romantic feminine cards. Do you agree? I wanted to give the card a bit more shabby chic look so I distressed the edges. I used several different lace, pom pom trim, pearls and sequins to decorate the card. The decorative border is Magnolia's doohickey die - Edwin lace. The little bunny is from Magnolia's Sunbeam bunnies kit. I stamped this cutie on white neenah paper and coloured it with pencils.

I made the flowers with white and green foamiran and AC3 dies by Rosy Dot.

This is it for me for today. Have a wonderful Wednesday! Bye bye xx

Shakin' birthday

Heya! How are you doing? Can you believe it's October already? I have the feeling that this year, especially summer, just flew by. 

A new challenge just started at Magnolia-licious blog. This month we want to see your favourite colour(s) on your creation. My favourite colour keep changing, but I really like pink so I decided to make a card in that tone.

It's a CAS card, but it's a shaker. I really should make those moreoften, they are so much fun! :) For the card I used these gorgeous papers from Lemon Craft. I used Tilda with plant as my main image. I stamped the image on Neenah solar white paper and coloured it with my pencils. The window for the shaker was made with Gummiapan's Old paper die. I decorated the card with some die cuts and home-made dew drops.

That's it from me for today. See you tomorrow. :)

The ribbon girl: October anything goes
Penny Black and more: Make it feminine
