Digistamps4Joy Midchallenge #65 "BLING on a SHAPE" reminder

The theme for Digistamps4Joy's challenge #65 Bling on a Shape was to make an easel card with bling on it! =)

I haven't made an easel card for a while, so looked online and then cut a cream colored cardstock and  folded it, used up a scrap paper with dots and added a green cardstock piece that was cut with Provo Craft scissors to make it look like fabric! =)

The image or three images are called Mummy Dummy and I merged them with Word, colored them with Twinkling h2o and then cut out a sparkly green dress from self adhesive glitterfoam! =) Added some gems to the mummy dummies and to the sentiment that I found online on a page with fashion quotes!

Christmas Progressive Challenge 4

Time for a new Christmas Progressive Challenge at Lady Anne's Challenges and it's our 4th challenge! It began only yesterday so you have a month to join in! =)

The sponsor for this challenges is Priscilla Styles! =)

I used the Christmas Wreath for my card and it's colored with my promarkers and a gold glitterpen! =)
I used a white lace sticker to add some frame around the image on the side where my paper didn't frame itself! =)

Mitt Kina swapkort/My China swapcard

Nu har mitt Justcards swap "Kina" kort kommit fram till Denise i Australien så nu kan jag visa upp det här på bloggen! =)

Jag använde mig av China Bell från Digital Doodling, ett mönstrat papper, ett mynt och en bambu die. 
På bambustammen så lade jag till crackle accent för att få till en fin yta! =)

My Justcards swap card with a China theme just arrived in Australia and Denise liked it, so now I can post it here on my blog! =)
I used a digital stamp from Digital Doodling, a patterned paper, a coin and a bamboo die! On the bamboo I added crackle accent to give it a nice surface! =)

Justcards Kina/China swap

Vi har som vanligt haft en swap/kortbyte i vår Justcards grupp på Yahoo och denna gången var temat "Kina" på det bytet jag var med på! 
Kände att det inte var så svårt att göra ett sådant kort, men då mitt inte kommit fram ännu så kan jag visa det fina kortet jag fick från Reta! =)

We have as usual had a swap in our Justcards group at Yahooand this time the theme was "China", so I decided to join in on that!
Felt it wasn't so hard to make a card like that but since mine hasn't arrived yet, I'm showing you the one I got from Reta! =)

By the way Reta is the name of the girl I swapped with, but it's also the swedish word for tease, as a friend overseas found out yesterday before I translate this! =)

Midchallenge reminder for Challenge 64 at Digistamps4Joy

Digistamps4Joy's challenge #64 has the theme "Anything Goes" and since we all hope for Spring soon, atleast up here in the north of Sweden with the snow we got this weekend!

I made a Spring themed card with the lovely image called "Sharon", she's colored with my promarkers in soft tones.
For the cardbase I used a orange cardstock, then found a butterfly paper from Inkido that I used as a background for her and cut out some extra butterflies for decorations! =)

Art With No Boundaries April Ezine - Guest Artist

I'm again a guest artist at Art With No Boundaries and this time for the April issue! =)

This is what I made:

Babushka Surprise Card

I have had Little Babushka Nikita for some time and decided to make a card with her, I got idea to make it like a real Russian doll. =)
I first printed out three different sizes of Nikita, colored her with my promarkers and now came the hard part, how to get all three to show between each other.
I found some eyelet's from my stash and used my tool to make holes in the side of the upper and lower part of the two bigger Nikita's.
Then I added the eyelets and put them all together, so that if I pulled them to the side I could see first one below the other and then the last one was behind the others!
That was quite the trick to make it work and I'm happy it did.
I used a green patterned paper for the background and an orange cardstock for the card, added an orange flower in the upper corner with a half pearl to match the other colors!
I'm going to try this in some other form later on too, since it's fun to make new kind's of cards and surprise the people who get them! =)

Sunday release at Digistamps4Joy

Time for another Sunday release at Digistamps4Joy! =)

Jen has designed three different fairies and I choose to work with the one that are called "I'm sorry"!

I hadn't a sentiment in mind so just made a card with the image, colored it with my promarkers and added some highlights with a white pen! Then I used a lilac pen to add fake stitches around it, choosed a background paper with dots and a lilac cardstock as the cardbase!

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

I love promarkers Challenge #162 What's your favorite color? All kinds of green, I used grass, tea green and pear green above!

Födelsedag/Birthday Fat page

Jag gjorde denna fat page, dvs en sida som kan sättas in i ett album, till en en god väns man, han är också pysslare! Ville ge honom något fint på hans födelsedag.

Jag använde ett 3D kit från Digistamps4Joy och färglade blommorna i tre olika lila nyanser och fäste ihop dem med brads. Sedan använde jag ett papper från mitt lager och några födelsedags peel offs som jag fick i present från en vän.

I made this fat page for a friend's hubby, he's a crafter too and I wanted to make something nice for him also!

The flowers I used are from a 3D kit from Digistamps4Joy and I colored them in three different purple tones and added brads to the center of them. I used a paper from my stash and peel off stickers I got as a birthday gift from a friend! =)

I'm adding this fat page to the following challenges:

The Card Crafter's Café Challenge 15 - ATC of Fat page

Testpilot hos Smartson

Jag har haft turen att få testa flera saker via Smartson de senaste veckorna! =)

Kockens choklad mousse 70%, den var god men smakade inte lika mycket mörk choklad som jag trodde, men kommer säkert att bli bra till fyllningar i tårtor framöver! =)

Liptons nya löste Berry Bliss, det var klart bättre än en annan sort de har men fortfarande en aningens parfymsmak, dock så kommer det att drickas upp! =)

Leksands surdegsknäcke, det smakade bara bra, var lagomt hårt och slank ner med diverse pålägg utan problem! =)

Liebster award

I got this wonderful Liebster award from Chrisann and it's a pay if forward award so as soon as I have figured out which 5 people I'm sending it to, I will post an update here!

Guest designer at Scrappin All Over

I'm a bit late with my post, but I'm a Guest Designer at Scrappin All Over for their challenge #11 Easter!The challenge is open until April 18th! =)

Digistamps4Joy is sponsoring their challenge and I belong to their DT! =) 

So for this lovely Guest Design spot I made this cute Easter card using Egg decorator Estie and some lovely Easter paper I had in my stash! She is colored with promarkers and raised on 3D pillows! =)

Nana Vic's 5th Challenge

Time for Nana Vic's 5th challenge and we got to use a lot of images and match them together, so most of the work was done in Word, then printed out and I used my trusted promarkers to color my card for April's challenge! =)
The lattice parts have a layer of glossy accent on!

You can find the images here in her store! =) I also used a sentiment from NanaVic! =)
I stamped a heart over the sentiment, it's a stamp I carved from a block but the ink doesn't show so much!
