New Challenge at TIME OUT!

Hi friends!

We have a new challenge for you at TIME OUT Challenges! We are inspired by these words:

Snowflakes are Winter's Butterflies

You can be inspired by the whole sentiment or choose just one word/some words for your starting point.

I needed to make a card for a newborn baby (or more rightly to her parents!) and wanted to somehow incorporate this into my DT card... And this is what I came up with. :) I was inspired by snowflakes -or maybe more just snow, the flakes in the image are more like snowballs! I colored the cute teddy and sky with Copics and added Wink of Stella to the bg -for once you can actually see the shimmer since I took the photo in unnatural light. Winter has come to Finland... No more taking photos in daylight -I always work then! Luckily the photos turn out quite decent with the light that I'm using. The sentiment is by STAMPlorations. I added a strip of glitter card and some wooden hearts as embellies to this card.I hope you like and please join us at TIME OUT!

New Challenge at Inkspirational!

Welcome to a Photo Inkspiration challenge at Inkspirational!
Our guest designer Asha and our regular DT members have created wonderful inspiration for you... Please click here to have a look! 

My simple card is created with dies. The deer die is a craft mag freebie and the stitched border is from SSS. I also used some blue ombre paper and stamped my Finnish Christmas greeting with Walnut Stain DI. There's quite a lot of dimension in the card: the deer is popped up with 3d glue dots and her horns (is it horns in English?!?) are partly glued down and partly "curled up". I hope you like and please join us at Inkspirational!

TIME OUT Reminder!

Hi friends!
If you haven't joined our current challenge at TIME OUT Challenges you still have about one week to join us! We are CASEing a beautiful CAS card by Karen... This is how it looks like:

Beautiful, right! I decided I wanted to go less CAS and came up with this:

I chose a Hero Arts stamp that could be a stencil (or it reminded me of a stencil!) and stamped it with Versamark Ink and heat embossed it with white powder twice: once on white card and once on green card, following Karen's color palette. I then "matched" the pattern when putting my card together. Kiitos means Thank You in Finnish. I recently moved house and a lady next door has been really welcoming and helpful -I think I'll buy her some chocolate and attach this simple card to her gift!

I'd really like to see your take on Karen's awesome design at TIME OUT. Please join us!

I Dig You!

Hi friends! 
You haven't seen any posts from me for a while... I recently moved house and things have just in general been a bit crazy. Anyway, now I thought I'd post this card I made already a while ago with the  super cute MFT stamps. I made it for a special guy in my life (he loves to gather mushrooms and makes yummy food out of them too!) so this seemed like a good stamp choice for his card. I was very happy that he did like it too. :) I've done my coloring with Copics and added some white gel pen for detailing. There's a strip of woodgrain paper on the left edge of the card and the gnome panel is popped up with fun foam. No embellies... It did go to a man! :) Hope you like. Have a fun week!
