Welcome! ~ Velkommen!
Here, in my little corner of bloglandia, is my blog about my crafts. Until recentley I've blogged about my card making. Now, in 2011, I'll try to do different things also, such as sewing (patchwork), knitting, crochet, baking, along with some card making...

Elisabeth Bell Release Blog Hop!

Welcome to a new blog hop at the SCACD DT's blogs! Today it's a great stamp release day for the new and fabulous Elisabeth Bell for SCACD Sampler Edition #4!
We are very happy to have two very talented guest designers joining us on this blog hop; Jacquie Heffner and Susanna Boyd!

I'm the first stop on this blog hop, so let's get to it! This beautiful and lovely image is called Day Dreaming, and I colored it with my Prismas. The sentiment is by Whipper Snapper Designs.

The pretty Prima Cameo rose and white Petaloo flower come from Susana's store, so do the Stickles, and the Kaisercraft Pearls and Rhinestone that I used.

I love making these paisley birdies! They're cute, I think. They're made with QuicKutz dies, and I use scissors to cut the wings and beaks.

Your next stop on this blog hop is the fabulous Heather.

Thanks for stopping by to look at my card, enjoy the rest of the hop, and then go to Susana to order these wonderful new stamps, they're lovely to work with!

Here's the complete blog hop list in case you get lost along the way:

Friday Sketchers # 99 ~ Huggable

It's a great new Friday, and I have made a card with Carole's wonderful sketch over at the Friday Sketchers blog!
I used the cute image Heart Stripes by Pure Innocence from My Favorite Things. The kitty is by Eureka! Stamps, and the sentiment is by Hero Arts. I colored with my Prismacolor pencils, using the MCP technique.

It's the first time I make a "crumpled rose", punched 3 big retro flowers, used watercolor paper, spritzed them with water, crumpled them and let them dry. Turned out OK I think. You can see several tutorials at the Whiff of Joy's Inspirational & Tutorial blog. The beautiful blue flower in the center is part of a wonderful blog candy I got from sweet Jacque!

Come Softly

I finally got round to order some of these gorgeous Sweet Pea Stamps designed by Ching-Chou Kuik, wonderful to color! This beautiful image is called Come Softly, I colored it with my Prismas. Love these cool seals by Catslife Press too! I tried not to over embellish the card, wanted the beautiful flower meadow background paper to show a bit, it's from one of the new BasicGrey pads, Green At Heart.

My talented DT sister Marti at SCACD has made two more great videos on how to use the Viva Decor pens posted on the Follow Your Heart blog, check them out! I really need to get some of those pens - soon!

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day!

Sweet Stuff

Today I suddenly found my self alone at home, all my boys went away for the weekend to tend to a hockey tournament. So I ordered chinese take away, and dug into my crafting stuff, I've had a perfect afternoon!

It's not often that I use a stamp more than once, this because I have (too) many of them, and too lilttle time to use them. But this stamp, New Friends from the Sampler Edition 3 by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD, has been whispering my name ever since I first saw it, it's sooo sweet! Love it! Felt so nice to make a new card using it again!

In Susana's shop SCACD you can now find the beautiful Prima roses again, and she also have some Spellbinders on sale at 25% off!

Flower Tag Card

A card a bit different from the ones I usually make, no image to color... And not square! *LOL*
I just dug into my pile of scraps, and this tag kind of grew some, little by little, over 4 days.

The inspiration to make the card came from a punched flower, that I distressed with inks, and I liked how it turned out, so I wanted to use it on a card as a focal point, hence no stamped image.

Thanks for stopping by still, my cards are few and far between, takes a bit longer for me to create with my limited time and lack of mojo. But I feel my batteries charge each time I touch paper and card stock and my craft room stuff.
I'm so in love with this hobby! Smiley from millan.net

For you...

Well, I actually got inspired to make a clean and simple card today, loved making something that's a bit easy. *LOL*
Image is by Card Crafts UK, sentiment is by Norsk Stempelblad and says: For you... The branch is my drawing.

Kiki La Rue

Finally here's a new card from me. It's been 5 days in the making... Not much time for card making in my life right now, and my mojo has gone missing too. I've taken a break from my DT assignments, I'll return to the DTs when I have time to full fill the requirements again. :o)

On this card I used Shy Kiki La Rue by C.C. Designs, the circle sentiment is from my own stamp collection, Aud Design, it's in Norwegian and says: Congrats - not one day older!

I got to use my new Nestabilites, narrow long ovals, I made it into a tag.

Hope you all are enjoying a nice and peaceful Easter!
