Gone Fishing!

Been home sick for the last four days. Not very common for me, but I guess it has to happen every now and then as I'm in contact with so many people every day through work. I've mostly stayed in the sofa - listening to the radio and drinking blackcurrant toddy. I've also colored in some stamp motifs, and tonight I even made a card! The stamp is Gone Fishing Luka by La-La Land. :-) (the sun and the balloons are just drawn by hand) The thread is waxed linnen thread. It's really easy to shape in the right positions, and secure with a small drop of glue.

Thanks for visiting!

Christmas coming up...

October already! I should have started two months ago... These last few months until Christmas will be flying by. They always do. I made this year's first Christmas card today. It's hard to find my mojo, probably because I so rarely make cards these days. But I just got a large order of stuff in the mail, and I really hope I get to use it all in the weeks to come.

On this card I've used some of my all time favorite papers by Cosmo Cricket (they are old, but gorgeous!). The stamp is by  Wild Rose Studio, and it's adorable! It's inked with brown ink, and colored with Promarkers and colored pencils.

Thanks for visiting! :-)

The Secret Garden

Two updates in one day! Well, aren't I the wild one? Another card with a stamp by Sarah Kay and Stampavie. Papers by Graphic45. Coloring with Copics, Promarkers and Inktense pencils.

This made me think about "The Secret Garden" by Frances Hodgson Burnett. I loved that book as a kid. :-)

Hooray, Hurrah, Hurra...

Well, hooray! Or hurra in my language. Love this cute mouse by... oh, lawd... It's been so long, and my brain just stopped working. Messing up my space looking for the package. I'll be back with the name when my head is back on my shoulders. Sorry. Very simple cards... Always trying to use some of my scraps.

(ETA: Whiff of joy! Ahhh... How could I forget?)

A happy weekend to you all! :-)

Coloring with Promarkers, Inktense and Colorsoft pencils.

Accordion card.

Accordion Card... They are not too difficult, but it requires very accurate folding, cutting and gluing for a good result. The accordion should fold down completely flat when pressed together.

Tim Holtz alterations tag
Butterflies and trees are made with dies by Memory Box.
Stamp by Whiff of Joy.
Coloring done with Promarkers and Derwent Coloursoft pencils.

The sentiment is stamped on a tag, and can easily be pulled out from the top of the card. Flip the tag, and there's a hidden pocket for money.

Card closes with magnets.
