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.

Material list

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.

Play with dies

I have rediscovered all my dies and has begun to use them in  new ways and way more often. I think I can thank my new storage for it. More about that storage a bit later.

Card with coffee cups

When I made this card I sat and played with a die from Marianne Design that I have had in over a year but never used. I tend to either start a card with a paper or an image or stamp. This time it doesn’t came out like I had imagined it at all.
The card is 6×6″ and has a frame of white cardstock.
I’ve only used a pattern paper, but both sides.

Flowers in the corner

One of the corners got a whole bunch of flowers and some butterflies. The half beads are milky-white and faceted rather than completely round.

Pile of coffee cups

The cups are trimmed to look as if they are in each other. I’m not to happy with the result, so next time I will probably cut a gap in the blue cup and insert the white etc.
