a birthday card

Inlägget postat av on April 21, 2018 | | Inga kommentarer »


Hello everyone!

In this post I want to share a birthday card I made. Does it ever happen to you that you plan to make i. e. a male birthday card, but the result is different? That’s what happened to me here. I wanted to make a male birthday card and when it was finished I looked at it and thought “this could also work for a woman – or for any other occasion than a birthday as well”. So, this is the card I am talking about:

The card is made from craft colored cardstock and part of the front was replaced with transparency.

To the top I’ve added a piece of a doily, wrapping it around the fold a bit.

To the bottom I’ve stamped a few splats from the Splats Kit, then added a few green Enamel Dots and a die cut “cheers”. To attach this I’ve used dimensional tape. It was a bit tricky to cut it down small enough to fit the letters, but it worked.

For the image I went with the Bottles. I’ve stamped all three sizes from the set and colored them in with Copics. Then I’ve covered them with a thick layer of Glossy Accents to make them look like real glass, but you can’t see it on the picture.

I’ve glued a piece of white cardstock to the inside of the card. But the plain white cardstock looked exactly that: plain. So I used the squares from the Squares, Circle and Star set and stamped it onto the white cardstock first. Then I used Versamark ink and a light blue embossing powder to add the star on top.

Have a happy day everyone!

Hugs, Kathrin

a little box with flowers

Inlägget postat av on April 21, 2018 | | Inga kommentarer »


Hello everyone!

It’s the 21st of the month and that means it’s me, Kathrin, posting some inspiration for you today.

I love to make boxes but I realized I haven’t shown one here for quite a while. So let’s start the day with a simple box:

I needed a small box for a special item and really wanted to use the Flowers Geranium and Roses Set. But the stamps were too big for the size of box I needed. So I’ve decided to stamp the image over the folds of the die cut box. So now there are parts of the image on two sides of the box:

I really like how the image continues on the other side of the box!

I wanted a soft look so I’ve used soft green, light pink and a light brown-ish grey to color the image in. The whole image was covered with clear Wink of Stella and since that wasn’t enough glitter for my taste I’ve also added a few rhinestones around the image.

Leaving the rest of the sides of my box just plain white seemed boring. So I used a light blue ink and different stamps from the Splats Kit to add some splats to all four sides, making sure the splats continue over the folds of the box as well.

To close the box I used some blue and white twine and tied a thin tag to the box with it. Onto the tag I’ve stamped one of the sayings from the same flower set. Then I’ve added a few paper flowers and a larger rhinestone to decorate the top of my box.

Hope to see you all later again today for my second post.

Hugs, Kathrin

Happy Birthday With Vilda Stamps!

Inlägget postat av on April 17, 2018 | | Inga kommentarer »


Hello!!

This is me Kristina with my Vilda Stamps DT project ! This time I used Father and Daughter stamps set. 

http://shop.engstroms.se/vilda-stamps-privat/

First I die cut panel with Blueprints 27. After that I stamped little girl from the set on panel and colored her  with Copic Markers. Next step was masking teckhnique. With MFT Big Balloons stencil I applied several distress inks and created background.  I also added some details with Uni Ball white gel pen on girl and on balloons.

For my sentiment I die cut Happy Birthday with Cause for Celebration Die-namics from white paper. 

Copic Markers: 

C1, C3, C5   /  E000, E00, E13, E21, E34, E35, E37, E93    /  R12, R14, R20, R22    / G0, G09    / Y08,  YR04   /0 blender

Distress inks: 

Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed, Wild Honey, Crushed Olive, Mowed Lawn, Sedless Preserves and Dusty Concord.

And that is all from me for today! Thank you for stopping by!

Flowers again

Inlägget postat av on April 10, 2018 | | Inga kommentarer »


Hello everyone!

Welcome back! For my second card today I am sharing another flower-ish card. I just can’t get enough of them right now –  since they aren’t really blooming outside yet and I am so ready for them to color up the world again I am making as many flower cards as possible. So I used the beautiful roses from the Flowers Geranium and Roses stamp set again:

Here’s the full card – and as you can see I went with very soft colors.

After heat embossing the image with white embossing powder onto watercolor paper and coloring it in – will tell you more about that step a bit further down in this post – I covered the image with paper and stamped the Letter Background stamp with yellow ink to fill up the background a bit.

Next I added the frame. This is from the Granar i ram “God Jul & Gott Nytt Ar” stamp. I’ve cut it apart so I could use the frame and the christmas trees with the saying seperately. I still can put them back together if I need or want to. But with doing this I have more options to use the frame. I’ve done this with quite a few stamps I own and doing it the first time was really hard. But it gets easier 😉 – and so far I’ve never regretted having it done.

And here are the flowers. As mentioned did I heat emboss them with white embossing powder. Usually I use Copics to color images in – and for more detailed images I have to stick to them because I won’t get a good result with watercolors. But with images like those roses I can handle the Distress Inks – and they are what I’ve used here. I went with Scattered Straw, Peeled Paint and Broken China.

In the end I’ve added a few green Enamel Dots and a small banner with a saying stamped on.

Have a happy spring time!

Hugs, Kathrin

let’s have a look into fairy land

Inlägget postat av on April 10, 2018 | | Inga kommentarer »


Hello everyone!

It’s Kathrin here today and for my first post today I am sharing a card that gives a glimpse into a special world…. Have you ever wondere what it looks like in fairy land? Well, I’ll show you a small piece of it with today’s card.

Let’s start with the top layer. I’ve had my Distress Inks for a few years now, but besides to ink up some edges I hardly used them until recently. Since a few weeks that changes and now I use them nearly daily. I just love the backgrounds you can make with those combined with stencils. Here I created a cloud background with Distress Ink Chipped Sapphire and cut an oval window from it. The background is matted with black cardstock. I also cut another slightly smaller oval from it to frame the window and bring out the brighter colors inside the window better.

To the bottom of the window I’ve added a banner with one of the sayings from the English Christmas Lyrics stamp set. I only inked up the “magical” and left the other words from the christmas text uninked. So I was able to use the magical for a completly different occasion.

I’ve added some white and orange iridescent sequins to the clouds.

And here you get the promised glimpse into the world of fairies, elves and other magical creatures. Did you know the sky is rainbow colored there? 😉

Again I’ve used a combination of stencil and Distress Inks to create the sky. I went with Chipped Sapphire, Blueprint Sketch, Dusty Concorde, Seedless Preserves and Picked Raspberry here. Then I used a different stencil and white ink to add bubbles to the sky. I just love the idea of how there are bubbles flying around everywhere, with the fairies playing in between.

Also this cute fairy is having a great time, playing with a little birdie. The fairy and the grass were heat embossed using black embossing powder. I let the background dry really well, but some of the fine powder stuck to it. I wasn’t happy about it first but the longer I looked at it, the more I thought the light black mist is adding some more interest.

Hope to see you all again later today for my second creation.

Hugs, Kathrin

Mother and Son by Vilda Stamps

Inlägget postat av on April 8, 2018 | | Inga kommentarer »


Hello!!

This is me Kristina with my Vilda stamps DT project! This time I used adorable Mother and Son stamps set. From the first moment I saw this set I fell in love. This set can be used for various occasions –   Cards for a newborn baby, Birthday cards, Baptism, Mother’s day, even for Christmas (very much reminds of Mary and Little Jesus).

For my card base and front panel I used MFT Elegant Rectangle Stax Die-namics. On the background I first applied Wilted Violet and Seedless Presserves Distress Oxide inks.After that I used Radiating Rays Stencil from MFT and with spatula I applied White texture paste. I love this technique because it gives something especially to the whole project.

I stamped image from the set with Copic Friendly Extreme Black ink and colored with My Copic Markers. I used: V12, V15 and V17     /  C1, C3, C5, C7    /  E000, E00, E08, E09, E13, E15, E17, E19, E21, E23, E93 and E95. I also added some white gel pen for details. For my sentiment I used some stickers from My Mind Eye’s.

And that is all from me for today! Thank you for stopping by!

Bookmarks no 2

Inlägget postat av on April 7, 2018 | | Inga kommentarer »


Hi there again.

So for my second post today I will show you another bookmarks that I made.
I like this ones since you put them in the corner of the sheet in your book and then close it. Have to make them as flat as possible of course but still wanted to decorate them a little bit. I love this bookmarks! So easy to do and perfect to make if you just have some small bits and pieces left from your paperscraps. The biggest pieces I have used here are just 10×10 cm.

Again I have used textstamps from vildas no v828.
Have a great day!
Hugs Malin
