New Challenge at Time Out!


Hi friends!
It's time for a new challenge at Time Out Challenges and this fortnight it's a special one:


So, an important cause of breast cancer awareness is our theme this time. We ask you to make an encouragement card with an optional twist of adding pink which is the color for the ribbon for breast cancer awareness. Do remember regular check ups ladies!!

CAS-ual Fridays is sponsoring this challenge -they actually have many breast cancer related stamps in their store if you'd like to create cards or other projects with pink ribbons or other images related to the cause to help to raise awareness. They do have amazing uplifting sentiment stamps as well!

In my card I've used a large stamp by The Grey Muse Stamps and also added an extra sentiment by Altenew. I've colored the image with Copics and Altenew markers, die cut the image with a STAMPlorations die, added the extra sentiment (heat embossed) and clear drops and called it a day. The coloring of course takes some time but this card is super simple, a large image like this makes creating so easy! 

I look forward seeing what you'll create for us. Our winner gets called to guest design for us -this time our GD is the fabulous Dhruvika (Cardogram) whose work I really admire! So -now it's your turn to take Time Out and craft! All the prize info, challenge details and more DT inspiration in our challenge blog HERE

New Challenge at Inkspirational!




Hi friends!

It's time for a new challenge at Inkspirational and this time our DT member Marlena has chosen the theme and asks us to "Angle It" -She suggests we angle something in the card for movement. I went with a pretty easy route; I made a thank you card for a friend and angled one panel behind my focal point panel instead of using a traditional frame. I quite like it so thank you Marlena for the inspiration! I've used a beautiful new floral image by Pink Fresh Studio, designed by the fantastic Alex Syberia. Love her work!  The image is colored with Copics and Altenew markers. The die cut sentiment is an oldie but goodie from MFT and the heat embossed sentiment belongs to the PF stamp set. Hope you like! Thanks for popping by and I hope to see you joining us.

New Challenge at Time Out!



Hello friends!
I'm here with my DT card for the new challenge at Time Out where we want you to be inspired by the quote above! You could be inspired by the whole sentiment or just choose one word/some words. 

I chose just coffee as my starting point and used a NBUS Three Room Studio stamp for creating a winter-themed card to send to a friend. The "wallpaper" is made with a Memory Box stencil and I used a woodgrain stamp for the floor after first masking the floor area and sponging it with lighter brown ink. The wallpaper background was supposed to be a lot more muted and soft but in my first version (that I ended up tossing) when using my brush for applying the ink I noticed the brush was dirty and my blue ink gave me an icky vomit green color... Not exactly what I was going for. Since I only have one brush I then had to use a blending tool, hence the strong color! The coloring of the main image is created with Copics. 

Please head on over to our challenge blog for all the challenge details and more DT inspiration.

New Challenge at Inkspirational!


Hi friends!
Very sorry to be one day late with my DT card for the new "Day" challenge at Inkspirational but better late than never I guess! I've used a Waffleflower image that has many things related to a fall day in it... But I've turned my card into a Christmas card by adding a Christmas sentiment! You tell me if it was a crazy idea or not! I just had this Christmas sentiment that I knew would be the perfect size and then I just tried to add a lot of red + some snow in the form of paint splatters. :)

This image is anyway stunning as are all Alex's images and I do hope you'll have a look at her shop!

Card for Challenges!

 HI friends!

I'm here with a quick post with a floral card for some challenges! I had my 40th birthday some weeks ago and I received this beautiful Altenew stamp from my crafty friend Milla and it's definitely a new favorite! I loved coloring this image with a combo of Copic and Altenew markers (sets D and E)! Thank you so much Milla! xxx
