INK #251 Cheer - One layer Christmas card

For our new challenge at Inkspirational we have a word prompt - CHEER. I was thinking about the greeting Christmas cheer but couldn't find a stamp with this saying in my stash, then I thought of this cute image from Colorado Craft Company. The rabbit and the hedgehog have their arms raised, like they are cheering for the falling snowflakes.

First I stamped the image and clear embossed. Then I masked it off and started stencilling the moon, using a Spellbinders stemcil. I masked off the moon before making the blue night sky. The snowflakes from Tim Holtz were heat embossed in white. The senitment is from Hero Arts. Coloring is done with with my Inktense pencils

Blue girly card for Christmas

I love playing with sketches and I'm sure you'll see me use this one also in the future.
For this card I used a die from my new Pinkfresh Studio mini slimline dies set, as well as a new Stamping Bella stamp. She's perfect for paper piecing! I put her on a DP with snow and added die cut snowflakes.
I heat embossed the Christmas greeting with white emossing powder and added white string.

INK #250 For boys or men

We have a new challenge at Inkspirational and this time I was the one to choose the theme: For boys or men.
This card is definetely for a grown up man. I gave snarky cat a top hat, a moustache and a bow tie, and I used my favorite sentiment. The die cut frame and stencil background are made with supplies from Altenew.

I so look forward to seeing the inspiration from both team members and participants.

Vintage Christmas - card #3 and 4

I received this paper with 12 vintage images as a advent calendar gift from my mum some years ago, now I'm ready with card # 3 and 4 in this series.

1) Card with the tag

For this card I cut the image with a tag die and raised it on foam. I added seambinding ribbon, twine and textured ribbon, as well as die cut pine branches and pearls. The papers, the striped one and the border with buildings, are both freebies. I used a die and my Dymo to make the sentiment.

This card is for:
Christmas Crafts All Year Round - October: Something starting with S and/or T (seambinding ribbon, tag, twine, texture)

2) Card with the oval frame

The lamp post was made with a Memory Box die, I decorated it with pine branches and pearls.
The wreath on the oval frame was a freebie gift together with some of the DPs used.I decorated the middle panel with powder pink lace.

This card is for:
Allsorts - #645 Embellish It

September Card Chain Challenge reveal

This is the first time I partcipate in The Card Chain Challenge - anyone can enter as long as you are willing to snail mail a card to a fellow crafter. For September there were 21 pariticipants across the world. If you'd linke to join in for the October challenge, you can sign up here until til 7th. 


I sent my card to Linda W of Scrappin', Stampin' & Singin' in Minnesota, USA, along with some die cuts. For my card I used several products from Altenew: the debossed background, the sun medallion and the paper pieced flowers. I never know how to arrange them, so I just covered the inside of the circle as best I could.


I recieved this card and goodies from Gail of Crafty Nomad in Norway. Thank you so much, Gail, I've already started using the stamps!

INK #249 Fox cake photo

For our new challenge at Inkspirational we have a photo. There are foxes, mushrooms and leaves on the cake as well as on my card. The white on the cake inspired me to leave the images uncolored, and I picked up the greens and browns with my papers.

The mushroom stamps were an advent calendar present from my mum at some point, the other stamps were all freebies that came with magazines.
