Stella sending a virtual hug for Easter

We are back with another sketch challenge over at Catch the Bug and as Easter is just around the corner I made a card with Stella Calendar Easter.

With the Coronoa virus around this will be a different Easter, so I used a sentiment with an instruction on how to give yourself a DIY hug from me as I'm unable to provide it in person.

The floral paper is from Maja Design. I added a flower and lace from my stash.

Ink - Photo with chair

For our new challenge at Inkspirational we have a photo. In general I find these the most challenging, but here I took inspiration from almost everything - the plant, the wallpaper and wooden floor, there's even a table and a chair.

I used a sweet mouse from Penny Black, a plant stamp from Altenew, 2 DPs to make the wallpaper and floor, a photo frame from Lawn Fawn and a sentiment in Norwegian.

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

Twofer Spring animals, sketch, birthday, dots and celebration

Here are my two cards for the Twofer Card Challenge #25, where the theme is SPRING ANIMALS. 
For both cards I used a chicken stamp from Lawn Fawn. 
I made a HELLO card and a BIRTHDAY card.
I also followed this sketch
And I wanted to join the Birthday celebration over at TIMEOUT where I used fussy cutting
The chicken were cut into 3 separate pieces and colored with Promarkers. I followed a sketch, used washi tape with sports, kites from another Lawn Fawn stamp set and a sentiment from Panduro.
This card is also for:  
CAS(E) This Sketch! - #363
Allsorts - #563 Lots of Dots

The row of chicken were fussy cut and placed on top of a row of balloons from the same Lawn Fawn stamp set. I was inspired by the colors of the Twofer logo for the balloons. The sentiment is from Letter It.

Ink #209 Animal - real or magical

For our new challenge at Inkspirational we'd like to see animals, real or magical ones, it's up to you. Please head over to the challenge blog to see inspiration from my teamies.
I made a Christmas card with a the most adorable piggie, which is a magical version of a real animal. I was inspired by the gingerbread man he's holding in his hands, using brown ink for the stenciled background and a dark kraft background with red foil detailing.
The sentiment is part of the same stamp set as the pig - from Kort og Godt. I heat set the sentiment with red glitter powder. I also added loose glitter on the fur trimmings of the pig's outfit.

Gardening JJ

Over at Catch the Bug, Thursday is 'Oldie but goodie' day and that's when we showcase some of the older Bugaboo images.

I used an image from a retiring set - you can find it here. JJ here looks much like my aunt, who loves gardening, and I made this card for her birthday in June. I'm often late with cards for family members. so it feels great to be ahead of schedule for once.

I made the background with green DIs and DoX and I used stamps from Altenew to make the scene for JJ (or my aunt). The images are colored with Promarkers.

Yellow and blue for a baby boy

We are back with another sketch challenge over at Catch the Bug and since I need some baby cards I decided to go with Baby word 01.
I colored the image with mainly blue and yellow Promarkers and cut it using a die from Penny Black. I used a strip og DP with lots of tiny shoes, bottles and elephants, an embossed panel with dots and a die cut border. I added a sentiment in Norwegian - welcome to the world.
