Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge #13

This week over at Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge the {PINK} team worked with the theme

Blinging it Up

I have used the digi Lil Lad Stefan for my card - isn't he cool? I thought he'd look good on a card with swirly blings - just like waves from the ocean - since he is a surfer. The text says "Damn, you're good" and it is a card specially made for a dear friend. ;)

If you want to join this week's challenge you'd better go and look at the creations the team has made - lots of gorgeous things - and check out the instructions HERE.

Hope to see your contribution soon!!

Take care!

Created for Brunkullan

This last Monday I recieved a lovely package from Berit at Brunkullan Scrap & Card - I dug in almost immediately and made this recessed window card:

If you're interested in what materials I've used (and can read Swedish), head on over to Brunkullan's blog where there are more details about the card!

Thanks for the visit and take care!

Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge #11

Hi there stamp lovers!

This week's challenge over at Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge is loads of fun! Your task is to create a card or something else and decorate it with something off the scrap desk - something that is usually not used for crafting!

For this card I've used a bottlecap, which has the text hand made on it - very appropriate! I decided to make the card a bit more clean and simple, but I couldn't help myself, so I added quite a few flowers... ;)

Now, have a really nice weekend - I will! I hope to fill it with lots of family time as well as time to craft.

Take care!

Think Spring Challenge

A sweet friend it turning 40 soon, so I thought I'd combine making her card with doing something for Some Odd Girl - Think Spring Challenge. This is what I came up with - lots of spring colours, butterflies, flowers...

The challenge is open until March 22nd, so there is still lots of time to enter your own card, in case you feel like joining! :)

Take care!

A Wallet Card

An old and dear friend of mine asked me if I could make her mother a card for her 70th birthday, and I made her this:

The card was supposed to have a travel theme, so I used a ticket and some stamps to complete the look, as well as some yellow and white flowers, buttons and some bling. The ribbon on the cards are fastened with Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher - I love that tool!! To close the card/wallet, I attached a small piece of velcro with gluedots.

Now, let's hope she enjoys the gift that is presented in this card... ;)

Take care!

Miss Anya card

This is one of the cards I made when I was in the UK visiting my dear friend Annika:

I didn't know what sentiment to put on it, so I just left it like it is. Maybe I'll add a name when I know what to use it for. ;)

The image is coloured with Copics, and I've used the gorgeous Martha Stewart Punch around the Page Cherish bought from Stampeezee, mini roses from Wild Orchid Crafts, Tim Holtz' Sizzix die Hardware Findings, a Tim Holtz stamp (a mini version of one of the stamps from the stamp set Spills & Splatters), some lace, Pearl Maker and a ticket. Behind the image is distressed cardstock, and some patterned paper from Tim Holtz paper pad Lost & Found. The image is cut out using a Spellbinders Nestability (don't remember which one, sorry!)

Hoping for some crafty time in the next few days as I have a friend who wanted me to make a special card for her mum, who turns 70 soon... I LOVE making cards for special occasions like this! :D

Take care!

It's Odd... I seem to find new addictions all the time... Not that I leave the old ones aside - oh no! - but I keep adding to my must-haves and need-to-haves. It's not good for my wallet, but I LOVE it anyway!! :D

This is one of those new cravings - I NEED more digi stamps from Some Odd Girl - they are absolutely adorable:

Well, I have just clicked home a few of the new stamps from the Spring Release - I will have to print them out and play with them very soon.

Christmas Challenge!

Well, I guess you all think I'm nuts now, since many of you know of my feelings towards Christmas. The Grinch and all that... BUT having said that, it's not as bad as it sounds like - I DO enjoy many things about Christmas, and one of them is to make Christmas cards, of course!

The Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge blog is going to host a monthly Christmas Challenges - there is a very nice prize to be won - 4 rubber stamps from Tickled Pink!!!

Now, create a Christmas card using the colours RED, GREEN & GOLD + of course a Tickled Pink stamp, and join the challenge! More information can be found here.

This is my take on the challenge:

I have used little Christmas Cherrie on my card - isn't she sweet?

Now, I need to get ready for an evening full of fun- me and Annika are having some friends over for some crafting/chatting/laughing... ;)

Take care!
