Olen 34-vuotias käsitöihin hurahtanut kahden suloisen tytön äiti. Sunnittelen valmistamani tuotteet yleensä itse, mutta hyödynnän myös muiden mahtavia ideoita. Tuotteiksi vääntyvät siis materiaalit hopeoidusta kuparilangasta villalankaan ja paperista kankaaseen. Uusia ideoita syntyy enemmän kuin on mahdollista toteuttaa.
I am a 28 years old mother of a sweet baby girl and I have fallen in love with all kinds of crafting. I use materials from paper to fabric and yarn to silverplated copperwire. Cardmaking is my newest passion which I´ll try to share with all in this blog. Please leave me a comment if you like what you see when you come to visit.
Hi again! I guess you know what time it is now...time to Stamp with Fun. This week we have yet again a great sketch for you to follow.
I went with an older WoJ stamp in my card...this is Charlotte, drawn by talented Alison Acton. Can you believe me when I say I had coloured this image actually for last xmas but never got around to making a card out of it? I sometimes colour images in a row which is good for those times when you need to whip up a card in next to no time. The papers are from Papermania and just had to use that gorgeous lace again.
I made a simple Christmas card as xmas really is the bussiest time of the year for me. My image is Carolers...those giraffes do look so cheerfull. I have coloured the image with Promarkers and added some clouds to the background with distress ink.
Hi all! Welcome to my part of Whiff of Joy's Christmas bloghop. You will get to see a lot of inspiration and creative work on your way and there is also a great prize awaiting you at the end of your journey, a 30 € gift voucher to be spend at the WoJ store.
So I hope you came here from Pop's blog, but no worries if you did not...just go back to the beginning which is at Katharina's blog and start hopping again.
I have made my card with a cute gnome drawn by Norma Fickel, this is Wee with reindeer and you saw her at Pop's blog earlier. The image is so gorgeous and lovely I think it needs to be shown twice on this hop LOL (well actually it was a big coincidence really)
I have coloured the image with a combination of promarkers and watercolours. The papers are from Papermania. I got some pretty gorgeous red berries embellisments from Magali, she has had to step down from the WoJ DT but sent me the embellishments to be used in my card for this hop.
I actually sent some lace and linen string to lovely Jane and your next step on this bloghop is to visit her blog. So hop on over to Jane's blog to see what she has come up with.
Have fun hopping!
If you are in the mood for some shopping don't forget the 20% off coupon Katharina has kindly shared with everyone...it's valid untill December 24th. And off course remember to join the Advent calendar, you need to be in it to win some LOL.
I have Bigsby as my image and he's holding a huge xmas present. I didn't really colour the image at all, just added a bit of silver and white gel pen... and there are gold accents in the dp's even though you might not see them in the pictures.
Hi again! I'm here now to show you this cute card I made for Stamp with Fun. We have again a great sketch for you to follow.
I'm not sure I should even tell you but believe me when I say I have had this WoJ image from 2008 for a while but have never inked it before. Bad, bad me 'cause the image is gorgeous. The papers in my card are from Papermania and I have used my Dymo writer again for the sentiment as I had in my earlier card today.
Hello all! Hope you had fun last week with our blog hop...anyway it's again time to set a new Karen's Doodles challenge. We'd like to start December with an easy one... the theme is simply Christmas.
I have made my card using Bigsby swinging... isn't he the cutest little mouse ever. I have done the colouring with Promarkers and the papers are from Papermania. A big chunky piece of lace sort of crowns the creation and I have also discovered my Dymo tape writer and made a sentiment with that.
Hello! Phew have I been busy...sadly though not with anything crafting related. I was meaning to show you this cutie yesterday but life got in the way...and the fact that I'm again struggling to get my creations photographed...so sorry for all the dodgy photos from here on 'till next spring LOL.
Yesterday was the release day of some new goodies from WoJ. This hansom little fellow is called Ben and the sentiment circle is also from WoJ. I have stamped the image onto kraft cardstock and I think I have managed to make a cool little masculine card even with the flowers.
Hi! Here we are again and now with a new challenge at Stamp with Fun. This weeks theme is first advent.
I did my card with a cute angel from WoJ. The card's really simple and I have again discovered doodling on my cards. I'm not really sure it's such a good thing but anyway I have written some phrases on my card with white gel pen.

Have you met Nora and Ben yet? I guess you have atleast seen them if you have been tuning on to some Whiff of Joy news as these cuties are to be released on Dec 1st.
These weeks before Christmas are a really busy time for me always so if I'm not around here much I'm propably at work or at some craft show selling my products...or making something new to sell. Just today I was at a local market place...and needless to say I can now again feed my habit of purchasing some new crafting goods. I mainly sell jewellery and also cards (but I never make my cards to be sold if you understand what I mean).
It's me again. Now it's time to talk about the challneg at Stamp with Fun. This week we have a great sketch to follow.
Wait...I'm being a bit bad here as I shouldn't really show you this one yet. The cute image is a part of WoJ's December release, Allison Acton sure did a great job again drawing some cute images for WoJ. I have done the colouring with Promarkers and used some scraps of dp I had laying around for this card...and lots fo flowers of course.
Hello! Phew, where did last week go? I had lots of things planned and would have wanted to show you guys something here on my blog also but suddenly a week has flown by and I have managed to follow through none of those things. Well anyway it's time to start this week with a new Karen's Doodles challenge...and this one really is a CHALLENGE as we'd like to see you use more than one KD image in your card.
I did some merging (Hahaa, sounds a lot fancier than it really is) in Photoshop and added a background to my sitting turkey. You don't really have to do it this way, you can use separate images also. I left out all dp's and doodles onto the kraft cardstock with my white gell pen. The phrase goes along the lines "Oh, so does the time fly, another year has passed and here we are still. And what a blast it was." . I think this one turned out allright, I think I like this card alot.
Hi...it's me again LOL! It's now time to tell you about our new Stamp with Fun challenge. The theme this week is Square...so square cards and somewhat square elements it is.
I used in my card propably my all time favourite WoJ stamp, this cutie is called Mother and child. Yesterday was fathers day here in Finland so this kind of fits that mood also, too bad that there isn't a stamp called Father and child. I think that would also be a great hit, at least in my heart. As you can see I have again stamped my image onto kraft cardstock, the colouring is done with Promarkers. I went for something really simple (layoutwise I mean) with this card and as embellishments I chose some cute girlie flowers again.
Ok, now I'm off to see what my darling daughter is upto, I hope nothing bad LOL.
Hello, hello...and sorry for being so late with my posts today! I've been having some computer problems, but anyway all that is resolved now. Let's get quickly to business...this week the challenge at Karen's Doodles is to make a gift box.
I sure did go where the fence is the lowest and just decorated one, but I quess that is just alright. I also took a bit of a break from all things related to christmas and used A pressent for mom as my image, did the colouring with promarkers and applied some UTEE to make cracked glass effect on it. The border around the image is done with a MS corner punch and the paper is from MME. All that was left to do was to add lots of flowers...and voila my box was ready.
Now it's your turn to start carfting with your KD images.
Here we are again! Now it's time for me to tell you about our challenge at Stamp with Fun. We have a great sketch to play with this week.
You may have noticfed that I use my WoJ goodies on my Dt cards for Stamp with Fun...there's really no other reason for it than that I just love using them LOL. So the image is one of the newly released EB angels and I have coloured it with Promarkers. I have also used three different WoJ dies on this card. The snowflakes I cut out of brown dp and covered with distress crackle paint and the swirl is cut from white cardstock and then added a hint of ink to the edges. The last (but not least) is the City Girl shape die.
...and the sentiment and dp's are also from WoJ of course.
I think that was it for now. Have fun stamping you guys!
Hello, let's start this week off with a new Karen's Doodles challenge. This weeks theme is black and white Christmas...but no worries if this sounds a bit too hard, you are allowed to use some colour on your image.
...I wanted to be strict with the theme and coloured my image using only grey tones. My image is Bigsby Wreath and I have cut it out and attached to the base with foam pads...and see no dp's, just black and white cardstock.
Not really much to say about my card...I have done the colouring with Promarkers and the papers are from MME. The angel is also raised with foam tape...so the angel is sort of in flight LOL...and lots of layers of cardstock piled together.
Thanks for looking and have a great weekend you all!
Hi again! Now I'm here to tell you about our new challenge at Stamp with Fun. This time we want to see things that fly or have wings.
As today is also the release day of some cute new stamps from WoJ I wanted to use one of them in my card. I have stamped the angel (drawn by talented Elisabeth Bell) with brown ink and cut out and then attached to the inked base with foam pads. The dp's are from MME and I have used lots of embellishments on my card. WoJ's new release also includes some pretty gorgeous new dies...and I have used two of them in this card, the mistletoe leaves and the swirls. The tag with the sentiment is also from WoJ. You should go check out the whole release at the store and get your order in as I'm sure these new stamps and dies will be a hit.
Ok now I'll let you start carfting and maybe do some shopping LOL!
Hello and happy monday! It's time to start this new week with a challenge... a Karen's Doodles Challenge I mean. This week wour theme is...Give Thanks. This can be Thanksgiving, a thank you card or what you are thankful for, you decide.
I decided to use Fall as my image and printed it onto some kraft cardstock and coloured with Promarkers. The papers are all from MME. I have raised my image with foam pads to give the card more dimension.
Hi there! I'm here only to quickly share with you this one card I made... with a little preview of Whiff of Joy's new November release. The preview doesn't really regard the images though, those are included in the October STORE stamp kit - Let us adore him that Katharina kindly has offered for sale also via WoJ store this time. So the sneak peak is really about a new leaf/branch die. I really do love all the dies that WoJ has to offer.
I was aiming for a masculine card but after adding those flowers... well the card turned out a bit more feminine again.
Woooohoooo! It's that time again...time to start showing some previews of Whiff of Joy's new November release. These new angel stamps by Elisabeth Bell are to die for (this one is just 1st of three cute angels)
... but that's only half of the exciting new release. Notice the snowflake and swirls on my card, those are done with new metal dies from Whiff of Joy. The only sad thing is you have to wait until 1st of next month to get your order in. In the meantime us on the DT will just have to tease you guys a bit more, so stay tuned for some more previews in the upcoming days.
If you were wondering how I have put my card together, I just piled on some brown and kraft cardstock and dp's (the one with snowflakes is from WoJ and the dotted one from MME) and added a nice chunky piece of linen lace. I cut the snowflakes from kraft cardstock and covered them with distress crackle paint (one of my new "toys"). The image is also raised from the background with some 3D pads.
It's Stamp with Fun time now! This week we have again a great sketch for you to follow.
I have used this cuter than ever seal from Whiff of Joy as my image. I have stamped it onto some kraft cardstock and then coloured with Promarkers. The papers are from MME and I have decorated my card with some flowers and a sentiment form WoJ.
