I finally got to see some friends for some papercrafting the other day. I tried the whole autum to join them but with a one-year-old at home there were always something else getting in the way at the last minute. So I was so happy to see them and to create. I had some new dies waiting to be used. This is one of them and I think it is so pretty. I have used Wink of Stella on the trees and the deer but the shimmer doesnt show on the photo. It is so difficult to take good photos when its hardly any daylight this time of the year. That' why I'm postningen three photos :-)
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.

I´m entering this card in the following challenges:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
