Big and small, they come in all sizes and shapes

Time for some tea?

If you give away tea as a gift, what can be more perfect then¬†a card on the same theme? I have longed for this digital stamp a long time and now finally I got a reason to buy it ūüôā

Time for Tea?

The frame is made of pink cardstock and measures 6×6″ (double folded). The digital stamp are from The Paper Shelter. On top of the patterned paper (from Maja Design) you find a piece of white cardstock that I have embossed.

Time for tea?

The little tea holder are from a kit with buttons. I have cut off the loop at the back.

Time for tea?

A small pile of mixed flowers. For once I haven’t used any roses (I’m totally blind to the buds, they are not real rosesūüėČ )
The purple and white flowers come with a pearl in the middle, so I matched them by attaching tiny micro beads with Glossy Accent on my big flower.

Time for tea?

My embossed pattern was just begging for beads. Each bead is glued separately and I used a toothpick to dab the glue on the paper before I mounted the bead. The beads are more white than yellow in reality.

Challenge in Blue, Red, Yellow and White

Just in time for Midsummer, I participated in a challenge on Facebook. Unfortunately, I don’t remember the rules, but I think it was:
Using the colors blue, yellow, red and white (or if it was green)
Two handmade strawberry
The text Glad Midsommar (Happy Midsummer)
A little more advanced folding

Card - Happy Midsummer

I chose to do a Criss Cross card in a little more elongated version than the square.
The card body is light blue Cardstock and the Patterned paper are from a 6×6” paper pad from Maja Design.

Card - Happy Midsummer

Around the card runs a red ribbon with red swirls. I have done my strawberries¬†with shrink plastic that I’ve colored with ProMarker (Berry Red, Black) before I shrank it.

Card - Happy Midsummer

My image comes from Far Far Hill and one of the kits with Pin-Ups. It was a good substitute when I didn’t had the inspiration to color my own.

There’s room for a greeting on the big tag that’s made of blue and white cardstock and decorated with lace, bow and my second strawberry.

Christmas Card #3 2015

I didn’t do this card for a¬†challenge, but just because I bought a nice die and wanted to use it at once.
It was, in all honesty, a little difficult to punch out, but with a little practice I got to the hang of it.

Chritmas card with Snowman

The card is 6×6″ and the body is white cardstock. I have used three different patterned paper with snow theme.

Ivy from Marianne Design

In addition to my new die with a snowman I used dies with ivy and pine cones that are embossed and colored with a ProMarker, Tea green.
The border is made with a edge punch and a strip of one of the patterned papers.

Pine cones from Marianne Design

I’ve put the pine cones on 3D pillows to give the card a little life. The ivy is just glued under the pine cones and then a little upturned.

Blue Christmas Card

My lovely snowman! You can use it both with and without the background.

Snow man from Marianne Design

The snowman was given a little sparkels with a sparkly Sakura pen. I you look close you fins some blue snowflakes in the background. Thees are also sparkling but with some silver glitter glue.
