New Challenge at Time out!

Hi friends!
I'm here with my DT card for Time Out Challenges where we for the next fortnight have a very special photo challenge for you -we are CASEing a card by superstar Gina K! She is also a sponsor of our challenge. All challenge details and lots of more DT inspiration HERE

I made my card with the rainbow color scheme and white flowers theme from her card in my mind. I cut strips of card stock for the background and heat embossed a white Gina K/ Hero Arts collaboration image on top. I added a store bought Finnish sentiment and basically that was it! :) Super quick card. I originally had a very artsy sponged and water colored card in mind but unfortunately time was an issue lol! I'm quite happy with this quick make!

Now it's your turn to take Time Out and craft. I look forward seeing your projects in the gallery!

New Challenge at Inkspirational!

Hi friends!
I'm here sharing my DT card for Inkspirational where we for the next fortnight are inspired by this amazing moodboard:

You could use al photos or just one photo/ some photos as your starting point. In our challenge blog HERE you'll find lots of more DT inspiration and all the challenge details!

I went with the color palette of brown, cream and reds and chose hearts as my motives. The big die cut hears are made with a Simon Says stamp die, sentiments also by SSS. Small dies are Winnie and Walter and the slimline die is by Marianne Design. I apologize for the awful colors of this photo, I assure you it's a cute card IRL... Lighting situation of winter Finland where not working for my advance in this one!!

Thank you for popping by and I hope to see you joining us!

I'll play along at

New Challenge at Inkspirational -I'm back! :)

Hi friends! 

I have fun news for you -I've rejoined the Inkspirational design team after a couple of years break! I look forward creating Inkspirational cards with Carol, Pia, Marlene and Julia. The first challenge of 2023 is New/Welcome. Do join us! All the challenge details and plenty of DT inspiration HERE.

In my card I've played with several products and made a little scene. Believe it or not (it's not maybe super obvious!) this is a "celebrate new home" card for a friend who looked for just the right house for a long long time! Hence the sentiment! :) Also the mushroom stamp (representing the new house!), by Jane's Doodles is new to me... So there's plenty of newness here! :) I've colored in the MFT elf and the mushroom with Copics. Background stencil and sentiment by Funky Fossil Designs. Hope you like and thank you for popping by! I look forward seeing what you'll create for us!

New Challenge at Time Out!

Happy New Year 2023!

We are beginning the year 2023 at Time Out with a fun, cute challenge -we challenge you to be Romantic. This is the first challenge where we have all of our new DT members joining us -head on over to the challenge blog for lots of DT inspiration and all the challenge details. 

In my card I've created a cutesy romantic scene with stamps by our sponsor Jane's Doodle'sJane's Doodles is run by artist Jane Beljo and the store is located in Zagreb, Croatia. Their high quality stamps are made in UK and USA. Jane's Doodles ships worldwide with very reasonable shipping prices and also sells digital images. Make sure to check out Jane's Doodles if you are not yet familiar with the brand!

Sentiment stamp by Spellbinders, the maker of the die I've unfortunately forgotten and lost the original packaging. :) I've also used a little woodgrain stamp for the floor -by Prima if I remember right. Again no original packaging left, the stamp is years and years old! 

The scene is colored with Copics. I've added some white gel pen and paint splatters for additional interest. 

Thank you for popping by and I hope to see you joining us!

New Challenge at AAA Birthday!

Hello friends!

I'm here with a new challenge for AAA Birthday where we are looking for your embossed birthday cards in December. I chose dry embossing in my card and used an Altenew embossing folder. I colored the embossed image using Copic markers and Altenew colored pencils. The sentiment is simply stamped with a sentiment from my stash -no idea of the maker! :) 

This is sadly my last challenge as a DT member at AAA Birthday but the challenge continues with fabulous new topics again at 2023! I hope to see you playing along! Happy crafting. xx

New Challenge at Time Out!

Hello friends!
At Time Out we have the last challenge of 2023 for you, an easy and fun Winter/Holiday-theme!

We are proud to be sponsored by Newton's Nook. The are offering a whopping $25 coupon to our winner! Please head on over to our challenge blog for all the challenge details and more DT inspiration. Our guest designer this time is Sue and she has made a very cute CAS card for your inspiration. Don't miss it!

My card is one of the cards I made during Hero Arts Stamp Along a couple of weeks ago. The critters are Copic colored. The background is stenciled with pastes -unfortunately the glitter paste for snow doesn't show too well in the photo! Stamps, dies and stencil all by Hero Arts. Tiny heart die cuts are from my stash, no idea of their origin lol! 

This challenge is sort of bitter sweet because we are saying goodbye to four long time DT members. 


They will all be very much missed... but luckily we are all friends by now and will surely keep in touch in the future too. I hope to see their work in blogland and IG in the future too because they are all simply stellar crafters. Thank you Jill, Joyce, Shauna and Kim!

So, now it's your turn to take Time Out and craft. I look forward seeing what you'll create. Happy crafting!

New Challenge at AAA Birthday!

Hi friends!

I'm here with my DT card for AAA Birthday Card Challenges where our theme for November is Monochrome. 

I chose to work with shades of blue in my card and came up with a CAS design with feather dies from Gina K as focal point. I even went with a blue sentiment in stead of a black one to stay even more true to my monochrome blue palette! I've used distress inks for creating a little ombre panel where I die cut the feather... And then I also die cut it from navy card stock... And inlaid the ombre pieces. 

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