Mothers day 2012

Borrowed the Hero Arts Flower Lady stamp from Åsa, and stamped it on the inside. On the outside I made a resist with the Fastik rubber glue, and then stamped with distress ink. Then I used my circle cutter to make a hole to display her. Also made a slightly bigger circle to frame her. And a heart in the same color with some extra velvet glitter (green so that I could enter this months color challenge at Hero Arts ;-).

Here I've assembled the parts...

I thought it was missing something, so I added some silver Pearl Maker around the frame and a stone on her flower.

Birthday card for Åsa

Wanted to try out the stair step technique with the nice cardstock I bought for Åsa (she loves turqouise). It has branches that are metallic, and it would look great with the lanterns from Hero Arts Good Fortune. With that I wanted to use my picked fence punch at the closest level, and the asian girl on the one behind.

Here is another image with the cardstock folded.

Then I realized that I wanted some grass behind the girl, so I used the stamp from HA Be Happy (watermark with hologram embossing on green paper), and placed it on the second layer.

And here is the finished card, with text and a bit of yarn that matches the lanterns. Also added some stickles to the girl and lanterns.

And here is a side view where you can see each step. Also glued on a green back to the card to have somewhere to write the greeting on.

Crochet bowl for Åsa

Bought this cool yarn to make another mobile phone sleeve for my friend Åsas birthday, but realized that she already has one. So I found an image of a bowl and the description of the heart here. Couldn't find the instruction of the bowl though, so I had to find out for myself.

I made it double-sided so it is more sturdy... And the heart and top edge white to make a contrast.

And from the front. The heart could have been a bit higher up, but it was too much work to change it. ;-)

Crochet princess cake

Made another little amigurimi, this time a Swedish Princessbakelse. Made with green, white and pink for the rose.
