Twofer Flowers

Here are my two cards for the Twofer Card Challenge #34, where the theme is FLOWERS. 
For both cards I used a die from Pinkfresh Studio. I made a thank you card and a with sympathy card.
 
 
 
1) THANK YOU CARD
A really quick and simple card. I used one of the dies from the Pinkfresh Studio set. I stamped the sentiment inside of the die cut, added some black splatter and 3 gems. The panel was raised on foam.

Day 1 of Bugaboo's 11th annual Birthday Bash - Woodland Friends

Over at Catch the Bug we're having a week long birthday bash - Bugaboo is celebrating its 11th birthday. Day 1's theme is to create a birthday card with woodland creatures.

I made my card using the image Owl trio, colored with Promarkers and with glossy accent eyes. The background is made with an embossing folder that came free with a magazine recently and a green ink. The trees are die cut, colored and I used a white and black pen for detailing.
The birthday greeting was stamped onto a tag.

This card is also for:
Passion For Promarkers Challenge - #573 - Birthdays
Shopping Our Stash - #436 What's New With You? (white Posca pen and embossing folder)

 

INK #230 Mask

For our new challenge at Inkspirational we have a word prompt: MASK. This theme can be interpreted in different ways. I used the technique of masking to make a cluster of potted plants.

All stamps used are part of the same set from Altenew. This started out as a one layer card, quite happy with it, but when I was going to add a stamped sentiment as the final touch, SMUDGE happened. So I had to salvage what I could - fussy cut the stamped image and placed it onto a partially dry embossed wooden background and played it safe with a die cut sentiment, die is from Penny Black die. I was happier with the first version, but I am happy I didnät have to bin it and start a new.

Please head over to the challenge blog to see what my teamies have made.

Ink #228 - Snow

Have you had any snow yet in your part of the world? I love a winter landscape with lots of white snow, but it can easily take the form of "slush" and I certainly don´t want that.

For our challenge at Inkspirational the theme is snow.I used a snowflake die from a Concord&9th set. For the background I stamped with a script stamp and white ink on kraft, added a little splatter and white enamel dots. The sentiment is a Tim Holtz chipboard.

Ink #227 - Kitten photo

For our challenge at Inkspirational this fortnight we have a photo. And I had a difficult time chosing where to go with, not because the theme was tricky, but there are so many possibilities! Should I go with baubles/christmas ornaments? Snow? A cat? Finally I opted for an image with a present and lots of snowflakes.
The image is Stamping Bella. I die cut the bow, colored the image with Promarkers and used glitter glue for sparkle.

Guest Designer at Twofer - challenge #33


I’m so happy to be invited as guest designer for Twofer Card Challenge #33, where the theme is STARS. I’ve made two cards for different occasions and with different designs, using the same star die.
I made a card fit for several occasions - "you're a star" card - as well as a New Year's card.

 

1) Youre' a star
For this card I made a background using brushos. I made a window and frame using star dies and added lots of sequins for a shaker design. I believ the fairy is a die from Marianne. I usually use the combinaion of red with gold and blue with silver, but for this card, for no particular reason, I used blue with gold for a change.
 

This card is also for:
Cardz 4 Galz

2) New Year
I do hope 2021 will be better than 2020, so I hope I plan on making a toast for the new year. A script sentiment used for the background, otherwise dies and sequins used, as well as frantage. The sentiment is made with dies from Concord&9th.

Ink #225 - Night

We have a new challenge at Inkspirational and this time it's a word prompt - NIGHT.

After some failing attempts of creating a night sky I changed direction and went with a black and white theme, a mix of dies (sleig is Marianne, sentiment is Hero Arts and buildings are Memory Box) and created a scene with Santas's sleigh. The stars are stamped and I added frantage for snow.
