New Challenge at AAA Birthday!

Hi friends!
It's time for the June challenge at AAA Birthday Card Challenges. This month our theme is my absolute favorite: Flowers! I couldn't be happier about this theme lol! I used an AMAZING peony stamp by Picket Fence in creating my card. It's stamped with black memento on kraft card and colored with Copics, Altenew markers and pencils. The sentiment stamps come from Simon Says Stamp. I was inspired by the colors of the June SSS IG challenge -those of you using Instagram, do check it out! 

All the challenge details and more inspiration from our design team and very talented guest designer Nancy in our challenge blog

I'm also joining:

The Flower challenge: CAS No idea if this qualifies... It does have quite a lot of empty space so I'm being hopeful! :)

New Challenge at Time Out!

HI friends!

It's time for a new challenge at Time Out and this time it's very currant for the time of the year: 

So beautiful! All the challenge details and more DT inspiration in our challenge blog HERE

In my card I've used a stunning digital image by our sponsor Alex Syberia Design . The image is called Spring Tulips and it's just one of her amazing florals... Have a look at the store!! I've colored the image with Copics and pencils and added some white gel pen highlights. The background card is dark teal colored but looks black in the photo... Such a pity because it adds a lot of "vibe" to the card if you ask me! :) 

Thanks for popping by!

New Challenge at Time Out!

Hi friends!
I'm here with my DT card for the new challenge at Time Out where we want  you to be inspired by something that is found in your home! We also have an optional twist of embossing. I hope to see you playing along! Lots of more DT inspiration and all the challenge details in our challenge blog HERE. Make sure you follow our guidelines so you can be chosen as a winner and win an amazing prize from our sponsor Uniko

I recently moved in an old house with high ceilings. In our living room we have beautiful ceiling rosettes and that's what inspired the dry embossed background of my card. Along with that I was inspired by flowers -I've been hoarding houseplants since our move!! I used beautiful flower stamps and dies by Altenew. I opted for using the layering stamps and not to color in my images this time. It was fun to focus on stamping for a change!

Some amazing companies there, right?!? In addition to the "normal" challenge running we also have a flag hunt happening...

AAA Birthday Challenge Reminder!

Hi friends!

After an over a month long blogging break I'm here today to remind you of our current challenge at 

where we look for shaped cards! 

I've been in a middle of moving house and starting a new household with my partner and his kids... Emptying and cleaning two flats and cleaning and organizing a 140 years old, almost 300 square meter house has been taking all my time! Anyway -here I am now and hope to get back to the swing of crafty things. 

To read all the details about our shaped cards challenge and link up your card, please click HERE. Here's the how to play in a nutshell:

My card is a fun variation of the good old gatefold card. I followed this video tutorial. I don't often use patterned paper so this was a different make for me, very fun! The gorgeous floral image is by Pink Fresh Studio. I colored the image with Copics and added a birthday sentiment in Finnish by Korttipaja. Hope you like and thanks for popping by!
