New Challenge at Time Out!


Hi friends!
I'm here to share my DT card for our new challenge at Time Out where we have a fun quote for you:


All the challenge, sponsor and prize information can be found in the challenge post HERE. You'll also be amazed by lots of DT inspiration along with a beautiful card from our guest designer Trina who actually is a former DT member! So good to have you joining us, Trina! 

In my card I've played with stamps from Jane's Doodles and made a one layer CAS design with stamping and masking. I've colored my images with a combo of Copics, Altenew markers and Altenew woodless coloring pencils. The sentiment comes from W+9 stamps, it's years and years old but looks great still! :)

With my card I'd like to join:

AAA Cards: No layers + Plant/Grow/Farm


Stamping Sensations: Anything stamped with opt. Flora

Thank you for popping by and I hope to see you playing along!

New Challenge at Time Out!


Hi friends!
I'm here to share my DT card for the new Time Out Challenges: on vacation! All the challenge details including prize info and challenge rules are to be found in our blog. Our winner also gets called to guest design for us and this time our GD is the super talented Marieke with an amazing action wobbler card! 


I was inspired by a dream location: Japan. To me this Hero Arts magnolia cover plate has a very oriental vibe and it also makes me think of cherry trees, not only magnolias! The sentiment (by Waffle Flower) would also be good for someone who is soon going to enjoy a little vacation break. I've colored my die cut with Copics and pencils and glued it on an ink blended background. I used indigo blue card for ink blending which made the process a lot faster than if I would have begun from white! Hope you like and thank you for popping by!

New Challenge at AAA Birthday!



Hi friends!

I'm here with a super quick post sharing my DT card for the May AAA Birthday Challenge where we have a party going on! :) All details about the challenge and plenty of DT inspiration in our challenge blog. 

In my card I've used a HA stencil with inks and glitter paste for a super sparkly, festive look. The STAMPlorations sentiment die tells you to Celebrate Big and that's what you do when you party, right! :)

I look forward seeing your projects for our challenge. Happy crafting!

New Challenge at Time Out!


Hi friends!
I'm here with a super quick post to show you my DT card for our new 'Spring' challenge at Time Out! Please head on over to our challenge blog for all the challenge details including prize information and fabulous inspiration from our GD and regular designers! 


In my card I've used flower dies by Altenew -they came as a freebie with a crafting magazine already a couple of years ago! I still can't decide if the layout is a fail or not... I was sort of winging it lol. A bit dangerous to glue things down before you are absolutely sure what you want to do!! 

Please head on over to the challenge blog and I hope to see you joining us!

New Challenge at Time Out!


Hi friends!
We have a new challenge for you at Time Out. This time it's one of our Inspired by Words challenges and the quote is really cute, "happiness is a warm puppy"! You can be inspired by the whole sentiment or choose just one word or some words for your starting point. 


This challenge is sponsored by Newton's Nook. Our winner also gets called to guest design in a future challenge and this time the winner is the amazing Åsa, one of our regular players! Do not miss any of the challenge details or DT inspiration, click HERE!

In my card I've used a Penny Black stamp as a focal point. I've colored my pups with copics. The background is made with "ink smooshing" technique -I've pressed inks on acetate, spritzed it with water and "stamped" with it. I've also used an anchor stencil by STAMPlorations and stenciled anchors with white pigment ink. The sentiment means happy birthday in Finnish. Hope you like and thank you for popping by!

Card for Challenges!


Hi guys!

I'm here sharing a quick card I've made for some challenges in mind. The stamped image is by Waffle Flower Crafts and I so so love it! I've colored it with Copic markers. I used a beautiful mini slimline die by Crealies to frame my flowers and added black paint splatters and gold half pearls as embellies. The sentiment is a sticker and says "hugs" in Finnish language. The challenges I'm entering are:

Stamping Sensations: stamp something for spring
We Love Stamping: Anything (stamped) spring)

Thank you for popping by!

Make sure to head on over to the challenge blog for all the challenge details and more DT inspiration!

In my card all the stamps, dies and stencils are by Waffle Flower Crafts apart from the sentiment stamp which is by Altenew. The background shape I cut freehand from masking paper -I've been wanting to try this kind of background type for a while so I'm glad I finally had a go with it! I've colored the images with Copics and used Altenew and Distress inks for the background. 

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

New Challenge at AAA Birthday!


Hi friends!
I'm here with my DT card for the new challenge at AAA Birthday where the theme for the month of March is Under the Sea! Please remember we only allow birthday cards. :) In my card I've combined two digital elements: a background by Alex Syberia and turtles from Varada Sharma. My sentiment is by Stampendous. I've colored the turtles with Copics, masked them, and added a couple of distress ink shades to the background. I've splattered some water and paint on top for even more "under the sea" feel! Hope you like and thank you for popping by. I look forward seeing your cards in the gallery!

Here's a list of all of the new products for you to check out!

My projects: 

Card 1 
Happy Belated Birthday

This was a simple, quick card, made with Count Me In digital stamp set!  I colored the image with Copics, added some gel pen details, matted it on black card and called it ready! :) 

Card 2
Friendships Refresh the Soul

In this card I used the both floral images available in the Truly Inspire Digital Stamp set and combined them with a sentiment from Refresh the Soul set. I was in a mood for a slimline card so I wanted to use more than one image. This was not a very quick make!! I've colored the flowers with Copics and pencils.  The black outline frame I've drawn myself with a ruler and Renaissance drawing pen (they are pretty much like Copic fine liners). 




Close up of the second card:


I wish you a wonderful hop, you are going to find lots and lots of inspiration along the way, I'm sure! Happy hopping!

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 fun CASE challenge for you. 


Please head on over to our challenge blog to read more about CASEing! All the challenge and prize details there as well along with lots of DT inspiration. 

I decided to make a very CAS card and created it with a Sweet Spring Altenew stencil! This stencil has two layers and I love the dimensional look you can achieve with the two ink colors. Layering the stencils was pretty simple and I love this look! So soft and dreamy! I die cut a heart with SSS die and simply stamped a sentiment from a Gina K stamp set. Some tiny paint splatters finish off this card!

Now it's your turn to take time out and craft and join in the fun! Our winner gets called to guest design in a future challenge and this time we are very happy to have the ever so talented Ashwini Rao joining us. Next time it could be you!! Happy crafting!

New Challenge at AAA Birthday!


Hi friends!
I'm here with my DT card for February's AAA Birthday Challenge where we want you to use pattern in your birthday cards!


I actually first created a card with paisley pattern for this challenge -paisley is maybe my favorite pattern of all times- and ended up not being able to use it... I was all silly and made the card into a friendship card! I realized my mistake only after it was all made: we only allow birthday cards in this challenge!! Oops. :) Do not make my mistake! :) In a way I'm surprised this was the first time I forgot in the whole year or so thatI've been a member at AAA Birthday. :) The first card is cute though and you can see it in my Instagram. 

The card you see here is made with a white heat embossed SSSS background image that I water colored with Karin Markers. Love the soft pastel feel of this, perfect for spring! 

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

I'm here with a quick little post with a spring card for a couple of challenges. I played with an Altenew stamp set Simply Spring along with their liquid marble stencil. I've colored my image with Copics and added a little bit of gel pens to the flower centers for detail... And splattered white and black paint as details. The oval die is by SSS.

New Challenge at Time Out!

 


Hi friends!
I'm here with my DT card for our new challenge at Time Out where we are Inspired by Words:


I obviously went with flowers in the garden. :) I used Altenew Craft Your Life Project Kit: Seasonal Blooms (stencil and die from the kit) in creating my card. I've stenciled the image with the three stencils that come in the set, then copic colored them, and then added pencil details. This was a pretty long project but I do like the end result! The background is blue card stock stenciled with a Marianne Design stencil -I think the stencil is supposed to create an ocean but I tried to create a cloudy sky with it. :) Sentiment is from the same Altenew set. 

Make sure to head on over to out challenge blog for more DT inspiration and all the challenge and prize details. Our guest designer this time is Nancy with a beautiful card with several layers -don't miss it or any of the fun!

New Challenge at Time Out!


Hi friends!

It's time for the first Time Out Challenge of 2022... And it is a wonderful one, "In Love"! Time to remember your loved ones, get working on those Valentine's cards or just be in love with whatever that feels suitable -like with stylish shoes as I've been! :) We all know how many ladies are almost obsessed with beautiful shoes, right! I've used a beautiful digital image by our sponsor Alex Syberia. All the challenge and prize details in the challenge blog, simply click HERE! Our winners always get called to guest design for us and this time we have one of my very good friends joining us -Milla from Mustesormi blog. We both live in Finland but there's quite many hours in a train between us... So due to the pandemic we haven't met in more than two years now. :( However we have spent many many fun crafty weekends together, just coloring away, chatting, eating candy and enjoying an occasional drink -Coca Cola for Milla and red wine for me! :) Miss you, Milla! 


My card is very CAS this time -I've simply colored in the image with Copics, added some gems, black heat embossed the sentiment (by Altenew), attached the panel to a card base and called it ready. Hope you like and thanks for popping by!

New Challenge and Micro Blog Hop at AAA Birthday!

 


Hi friends!

The new challenge at AAA Birthday for January 2022 (yay for the new year!) is to create birthday cards with two of your favorite colors. I have many favorite combos but I decided to go with blue and green. I made my card using an Altenew stencil set "Playful Patterns" and combined that with sentiment stamps from SSS. A quick and easy card! 

The first challenge of the year is also part of a micro blog hop:

To celebrate the New Year, new beginnings and new blog colours AAA Birthday and AAA Cards are having a micro blog hop.

Fancy winning a £10 spend at ........ or a second prize of a mystery parcel? Then play along like this:

1. Comment on both AAA Birthday and AAA Cards first 2022 challenge post.

2. For two extra entries into the draw enter a different card at each of the first 2022 challenges.

To accommodate the different timings of the two challenges the Micro Hop will begin at 8.00am UK time on Sunday 9th January and close at 23.55 UK time on Saturday 22nd January.

You can of course enter cards at AAA Birthday before and after those dates, but they will not be a part of the prize draw.


Happy crafting and enjoy the hop too! xxx
