Star shaped card

Wanted to enter the Hero Arts contest with a shaped card, and got inspired by a real nice folded one from my friend earlier that was shaped as a star. So I choose a nice magenta cardstock that I stamped with one of the Heart Flowers on one side and Florentine Pattern on the other, both in black. I also decorated the edge with black Pearl Maker.

Then I colored Cheeky Mate from The Greeting Farm with Promarkers and cut her out.

I needed some decoration for the inside, so I printed a couple of digital Old Letter Writing, also from HA. Thought that that one suited the girl. I also stamped the same flower in white with a stem. And finally I cut a small circle of the text to cover up a mistake next to the girl. ;-)

Here are some photos of the card open (havn't decided on whom to give it to, so there are no text in it yet):

And here is the finished one when it's closed. I placed the girl so that she is sitting on the fold. Thanks for looking! :-)

SM-guld för Brynäs!!!!

Dagen började kanon, det bjöds på årets glassnyheter vid Gullmarsplan. Jag tog självklart en lakritspuck dagen till ära.

Vi hade tur att det var just idag vi skulle hem till Gävle för att hälsa på mina föräldrar. Brynäs hade hemmamatch på kvällen, och tog SM-guld!!! :-)

Efter det lät vi mormor och morfar passa barnen, och tog bussen ner på stan. Här är några bilder från ett firande Gävle!

Och här är lite bilder från firandet på Stortorget på söndagen...

Crochet iPhone sleeve

Have had this yarn for years, and didn't quite know what to do with it. Then I got inspired from a co-worker to make a sleeve for my iPhone. The yarn has double threads, both a neutral and one that changes color. And it was a perfect match, it did exactly cover my phone + a short string to tie with.

At first I was thinking about some kind of decoration, but now that I used it some I think it might get in the way. But maybe I'll change my mind later...

Sunshine window card

I started by stamping the images from the Hero Arts set Be Happy with black StazOn on acetate. Then I colored it with window color in several layers until I was satisfied.

Then I stamped HA Magical bg in lime green on a white cardstock.

I then cut out the window from both the bg and a white card, making the one at the bg a bit bigger to make a white frame around the image. Finished it by tying yellow yarn beneath the image.

And here are some images of the finished card that shows the window colors in different lights (and the foam adhesive between the layers in one).

Easter Card

Bougth this Easter Anya from The Greeting Farm a couple of months ago, so I really wanted to use her on a card (I usually dont send Easter cards). I also had some nice color coordinatad cardstock with roosters, silver ink and ribbon, and the fun bg Life of the Party Dots from Hero Arts.

I also wanted to enter the card in this months Hero Arts contest, so I choose one of the sketches. I stamped the dots in silver on a pink paper ribbon and wrapped it around the flowery scrap. Finally I wrote Glad Påsk with a calligraphy pen.

Creative afternoon

Me and my friend Åsa have been talking about getting together and do some cardmaking. My primary thing to try out was different resist techniques. Besides that we tried out each others stamps.

Here are some of the stuff I made:

But only three of them were finished:
