Time Out Challenges Reminder!


HI friends!
I'm here with my DT card for the current challenge at Time Out where we challenge you to be Fashionable!


This challenge is sponsored by STAMPlorations. All challenge details, info about the prize and fabulous DT inspiration in our challenge blog HERE! Also remember to leave some love to our talented guest designer Jenny Martin

At first I had no idea what stamps or dies to grab for this challenge but then I came to think of making a card with something that is in fashion at the moment. I know that in home decor bold black and gold wall papers are very in... And in clothes big floral prints have been everywhere... So I chose this Chocolate Baroque background stamp and heat embossed it with gold on black card for a pretty dramatic card front! I cropped the image to show some white card base and  added a large Winnie and Walter die cut sentiment. That's all there is to this card! It came together very quickly but this wasn't the first version... This one I ended up liking. :) I hope you like it too! Thanks for popping by!

New Challenge at Less Is More!


Hi friends!
I'm here with a quick card for the new challenge at Less Is More! No, our theme is not green... It's One Layer Stencils! So we need to see just one piece of card stock folded in half, no added layers... And lot's of white (or green...) space. :) 


This challenge and the month of August is sponsored by Funky Fossil Designs and I'm using their stencil with leaf images on my card. The leaves inspired me to make an all green card... I paired the stencil with stamps from Altenew. Simple masking and inking, stamping and paint splattering, that's all there is to this card! 


Please head on over to our challenge blog for all the challenge details and more inspiration from our fabulous design team! Thanks for popping by, happy weekend and happy crafting!

New Challenge at Inkspirational!


Hi friends!
I'm here with my DT card for the new challenge at Inkspirational


Our DT member Pia has chosen this fun topic, very suitable for the summer months when many of us are traveling on our vacations! A good friend of mine travels to different lighthouse islands every summer to stay there for a week or so and  to help to restore the lighthouse with a group of volunteers -quite an unique hobby! She is also one of my regular dog sitters an will come to help next week when I'm working my butt off.... So I made this card for her as a thank you card. All the dies came free with a papercrafting magazine and the sentiment stamps are by Uniko.  Hope you like and thanks for popping by!

Head on over to our challenge blog for all the challenge details and more DT inspiration. :)

All the die cutting is made with bits of left over card stock so I'm entering Pixie's Crafty Snippets #358! Also entering Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: die cutting.

Time Out Challenges Reminder


Hi friends!

I'm here to remind you of our current challenge at Time Out. We have one of our theme challenges for you and this time the theme is Relaxation. If you choose to use our Optional Twist and make a one layer card you have a chance to win a $25 voucher to our sponsor Newton's Nook


In my card I'm using Newton's Book Club stamps and Newton's Book Club dies. I find reading very relaxing and even more so when reading next to someone you really like! :) For the background I used an Echo Park backgorund stamp, stamped with white pigment ink on navy card for a subtle night sky. The Newton image is colored with Copics.  I added a paper strip with black lines to the left edge of the card, I felt it needed some black. :) I hope you like it, I think it turned out very cute!

Please head on over to our challenge blog for all the challenge details and for more inspiration from our design team and guest designer Marieke . Play along and you could be chosen to guest design as well! Happy crafting! 

This card is made for a special someone in my life! 

Inky Paws Challenge: Summer theme 
When July turns into August here in Finland the evenings begin to darken again... a good way to enjoy those dark nights is to curl up with a good book with someone you love!

New Challenge at Inkspirational!


HI guys!
I'm here today with a quick post with my DT card for the fun new challenge at Inkspirational:



This was a very inspiring word prompt, I had several ideas from using my score board to create a rosette to making a more folded card design... But I opted for using a tiny envelope die I have! The die cuts the shape of the envelope and you fold it yourself and glue it together. Quite a fun, cute die! I used a SSS flower die (or parts of the die) to create a flower that pops up from the envelope. This die was gifted to me by my fabulous Time Out team mate Jill and I really love it! Thanks Jill!! The sentiment is by Verve Stamps (no longer in business) and the rectangle dies are W+9. Hope you like and thanks for popping by! Lots of more DT inspiration in our challenge blog HERE!

Time Out Challenges Reminder!



Hi friends!

When this post goes live I'm enjoying of the clear waters of Croatia!! So excited about a one week long trip with one of my besties. Lots of fun girly time ahead!

The card of this post is my DT reminder for the current photo challenge at Time Out. We are sponsored by Topflight stamps with a fabulous $25 voucher to their store! Click HERE for the challenge post for all the details and more DT inspiration! 


I was inspired by the wall art piece and stenciled some anchors with white pigment ink on navy card. The stencil is by STAMPlorations. I also took the wheel shapes as my inspiration. Color wise I'm quite far from the photo but I love a strong nautical color scheme! The sentiment die is also by STAMPlorations, the rectangle dies and the small hearts are Winnie and Walter and the wheel and anchor dies came with a magazine. I often enjoy white paint splatters and this time as well! :) Hope you like and thanks for popping by! I hope to see you joining us!
