Sad news

I got the sad news the other day that an old friend had breast cancer and was going through surgery. We were good friends in school but had not seen eachother for many years now. I really wanted to send her a card to let her know I was thinking and praying for her.
I tought the cute angel from Skaparkällarn would be a good image for the card and I colored it with prisma color pencils. I kept it Clean and simple, the way I like it.

wedding

My oldest friend got married in september and this is the card I made her. I like the effect of a boxcard. I made the pattern on the panels using a stencil and perfect perarls. It turned out really nice.

Twist and pop card

A friend turned 40 last week and this weekend she had a great party to celebrate. We were some friends who had gathered for a present and I made this card to go with it. A really fun card to make.

One layer card


I have not been so good at blogging my cards lately, the few I have manager to do.... But now I had an idea in my head that I really wanted to try out, so here is finally something new from me :-)
I used my new happy birthday die on masking tape and used the diecut as a mask. I then inked over it with distress ink. Splattered some water on it to make it more interesting. I am very happy with how it turned out. I think it's a happy card and the colours make me think of springtime.

New stamps

I know it's many months to next ramadan but I bought new stamps and I wanted to try them right away. My boyfriend is a muslim so I thought it would be nice to have some stamps for muslim holidays as well as my christian ones.
So here is a card for ramadan. I masked off a part of the card and then used green distress ink over the stamped image and sentiment. I then sprayed perfect pearls gold over it to make it shimmer beautifully. It's difficult to take good photos of shimmer so I post a couple of photos. 

Ramadan is the month when the quaran started to come to Mohammed. That's why I enter the card in Less is more's challenge this week.

I love you

It's fathers day here in sweden on sunday. It will be the first one we celebrate for my dear man as he became dad to our precious son in august. I don't get much time to do cards theese days due to the little one but I have time to search the internet for inspiration. I found a cool technique with embossing folders that I wanted to try out. So when I finally got some time to create I decided to try this technique for two fathers day cards, one for my father and one for my sons father. 
The technique is to ink up a piece of watercolor paper, I used distress ink. Then spray a embossing folder with water on one side and press that side on the paper. The water will pick upp some of the ink and leave the folders pattern on the paper. 
The pink one didn't turn out the way it was supposed to but I liked it and think it makes a cool background. The sentiment says I love you.

A quick card

Sometimes you really need a card like now and you don't have any in your stash that you like. Then you need to make a really quick one.This is such a card. I need a birthday card tomorrow morning and not much time with a newborn to make on. So here it is made with distress ink and dies. The word says congratulations in swedish.

He is here!

It's been really quiet here in the blog for a while. That's because there has been a lot of other things in focus. I have been pregnant and five weeks ago our amazing son finally arrived. He is gorgeous and life will never be the same again. It will be greater. 
This babyboy wants to be close to mom all the time so I don't get much time to do anything else really. But the other day I could get startled on the Thank You cards for those who have congratulated us. It's very clean and simple but that was all I could do with a little baby sleeping om my chest.

40th birthday

It's summer and it means not much time for card-making. It's too hot for it and I spend most time outside. I'm also pregnant, due in three weeks which is very exciting. So it's a lot of preparing for the new baby.
But I want to share a card that I made for my sister-in-law in the beginning of the summer. She turned 40 and had a huge party. When my brother turned 40 last year a made a watercolour portrait on his card so I wanted to do one on hers too. The card was very appreciated which was fun. It's painted with distress ink.
