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.
Aaargh! Again I'm late with my dt post for Stamp with Fun...this time I've had some hardware problems...even my camera has finally decided it won't play ball. A while back I found my camera from our fireplace, not really from the hearth but close... Our daughter had decided to hide it there and we had had fire in the fireplace non the less. Well the plastic pieces had melted a bit and the lens would noit close properly but otherwise the camera worked just fine...untill now that is. The camera works still but all the pictures are completely out of focuse. I have no idea when I'll be able to get a new one so these out off focuse pictures will just have to do all though I really would not want to show them to anyone.
So there was a really nice sketch to follow. I used a cute girl from the Back2School line from WoJ and coloured it with Promarkers. he papers are from my scrap drawer and I also added some flowers and a charm to decorate the card.
I know, I know...I'm late again...and skipped last week alltogether and completely. To give you an excuse I've just been so busy at work, how annoying when your real life gets in the way LOL. Well anyway there's a new challenge at Stamp with Fun again. This week the theme was pearls and flowers. I only have one flower in my card (the one in the girls hand) but I think that's enough.
So the gorgeous image is from WoJ's new Back2School line, all avalable now as separate stamps. I have coloured the image with Promarkers and decided again to use papers from my scrap drawer, so here I have papers from MME, Basic grey and Pink Paislee I think. Those lovely pearl brads are from the WoJ store of course.
Hello and good morning! Here I am today...and guess what, this post is up the right day LOL...with my card for Stamp with Fun. This week we have a lovely theme for you. The theme is In the Garden. So I guess there will be a lot of flowery images and embellishments this week.
I did my card with WoJ's cute I am Sorry Gnome by Norma Fickel. I have coloured my image with Promarkers as always and have finally dug into my Webster's Pages paper pad. I just love that background dp. The tag die, border die and sentiment are all also from the WoJ store together with the image. That old piece of lace is from my stash and it really is a vintage element as it is really old...believe me when I say so.
Now go on and have fun stamping and making your own garden projects!
It's already tuesday and still I was without my SWF post...but hey here it is quick and sweet LOL.
So this weeks challenge is to follow a great sketch again. I had so much fun making this card and I guess no one would even know if I did not tell you it here straight away that the papers are again from my scrap drawer... and some of them are even xmas papers.
I also think I found my new favourite among EB stamps...this cutie is from Whiff of Joy's new stamp kit. All the kits have shipped out but don't worry if you did not preorder the kit as all the images will be released separately on the 1st of June. I did my colouring with Promarkers and added a sentiment, button twine and pearl brads to the mix. All my embellishments were from the WoJ store.
Oooops! I should have posted this card yesterday but completely forgot about it....there's no other excuse. But anyway there's a new challenge at Stamp with Fun with the theme of green and pink.
I have used these cute swans from WoJ as my image and coloured them only slightly with my Promarkers. The papers are from MME and October Afternoon. The lace is from my stash and the button twine, brads and sentiment are all from WoJ. How great it is that you can get so much gorgeous stuff from the WoJ store.
Hello all! It's time to start this week withre yet another Stamp with Fun challenge. This week we have again a great sketch for you to follow.
I got my dt package from WoJ and just had to play with this lovely stamp right away. It's called Friends forever - Nora and Ben. I actually spent hours colouring and cutting the image...I'm really pleased with the end result, but I guess I could have skipped the cutting part by colouring the background and the image at the same time. Those gorgeous papers are from WoJ's spring paperkit...and the lovely sentiment is also from WoJ.
Thanks for looking!
If you want to know what I was up to yesterday you should check out the WoJ TUIN blog for my latest tutorial.
Hello and good evening! It's time to set another Stamp with Fun challenge...this week we'd like to see some ribbon or lace on your projects.
I made my card using my all time favourite WoJ stamp, Norma Fickels Mother and Child. I have coloured the image with Promarkers and paired the image with some MME and Papermania papers. The ribbon is from my stash.
Thanks for looking and have fun stamping!
ps. don't forget to go check out the WoJ store for all the new stuff there.
Hello everyone! The sun is shining really brightly here today and I wish I could be outside right this minute...but first thing first....there's a new challenge at Stamp with Fun. Go check the wonderful sketch and start crafting.
I have made my card using WoJ's cute Puff-Heart dragon as my image and coloured it with Promarkers. I found the papers from my scrap drawer...still trying to use up all the scrap left from other projects. The papers are from October Afternoon and WoJ. I went a bit mad with all the flowers but I guess one can't have too many flowers can they...
Hello and happy Easter! I jus wanted to let you guys know that I have made a new tutorial and it's up at the Whiff of Joy Tutorials and Inspiration blog. This card was just a side product...so hop on over there to see what the tut is all about.
Aaaargh! I'm so sorry I'm a day late with this post...but I was having some difficulties with my computer yesterday. Well anyway there is a new challenge again Stamp with Fun. This week the challenge is an easy one...just make a birthday card.
I made my card with one of WoJ's new digistamps...here is Prima Ballerina Nora. The sentiment is also from WoJ as is the die I have cut it with... and the gorgeous butterfly die too. The papers are a mixture of WoJ and MME, just some scraps I found from my table.
No go on and have fun stamping!
ps. I did something I had sworn I would never do...registered to facebook LOL. I'm taking it slowly though, don't even have my picture on my profile yet.
Hello all! It's time to Stamp with Fun. This week there is a great sketch to follow.
I have done my card using one of Whiff of Joy's new digi stamps, this is Sweet Nora and you can get it also ready coloured... I did the colouring the old-fashioned way with my Promarkers. I've been trying to use out my scrap papers that I didn't even dare to throw away in the move. So the striped one is from MME and the flower paper is from Basic Grey. I added lots of flowers and a small tag cut with a new die from WoJ. So I guess that was all for now.
I'm going to a craft sale this weekend and I have lots to do before it is saturday...too bad that I don't really have any time to do anything new, with work and all. Well maybe I don't need to sleep that much LOL.
Hello everyone! It's time to Stamp with Fun and this week the theme is Easter.
I made my card using WoJ's cute Mother and child by Norma Fickel and my card is simple and more versatile than just an easter card as I didn't put on a sentiment that says easter. The gorgeous border is done with a new WoJ border die... you should go check out all the gorgeous new stuff there is available again from the WoJ store. This months stamps are released as digis so you don't even have to wait to get started with your new stamps YAY!
I haven't been able to do much crafting lately due to our move and with all the packing and unpacking...I was actually at work during our real move in day and wasn't able to check what my husband and his friend were up to...this resulted in the fact that I still don't know where most of my stuff is. I had actually moved most of my carfting goodies prior to the move in day and even unpacked them, but our little movers were clever...NOT...enough to put all the other boxes in front of my desk so that I can't get to my crafting table now without clearing all that other stuff out first...and it's such a tidious work I've been puttting it off as long as I can. But I guess there will be light at the end of the tunnel soon and there will be more stuff for you guys to see here at my blog.
Hello everyone... finally I have been able to do something carfty and in this case a bit artsy. My new tutorial can be seen at the Whiff of Joy Tutorial and inspiration blog.
See you there!
ps.If you were wondering why I have been so quiet it's just that we have finally been able to move to our new house and the move was quite a big ordeal. Most of my stuff is still in boxes so I'll do what I can with what little supplies I can find LOL.
Hi all and good evening...sorry for being so late with this post though. I ment to schedule this one last night but I was so tired I feel asleep on the couch LOL...and of course I didn't have time to do it today in the morning. But anyway here I am and I want to tell you about our new challenge at Stamp with Fun. We have a great sketch again for you guys to follow.
I stretched the limits of the sketch again and went over the borders of my cardbase...it gives the card a whimsical look I think. My image is one of my new favourites, an adorable gnome by Norma Fickel from Whiff of Joy. The papers are a mixture of WoJ and MME and I have attached a tag with a piece of button twine available at the WoJ store.
I'm also entering this one to a challenge for a change...the challenge at Wild Orchid Challenges was to use punches or die cuts...and I have used a border die from WoJ on my card...and of course some gorgeous flowers from WOC.
Ok now I need to dash off again. Thanks for looking and have fun stamping!
Good morning everyone! It's time to kick start this week with a new Stamp with Fun challenge...and this weeks theme is monochrome blue.
I made my card with WoJ's cute Birthday gnome. I have done the colouring with Promarkers as I always do and chose some papers from my WoJ and MME paper pads.The gorgeous borders are done with a WoJ border die and so is the snowflake I have attached to the card with a piece of button twine also available at the WoJ store.
I actually combined this card with the current challenge at the WoJ challenge blog which is blooms and buttons...you should go check that out too.
Good evening people! Today's the day we've all been waiting for...these+3 cute gnomes by Norma Fickel are now ready for ordering. And that's not all...the stamps from the secret spring stamp kit are now on sale as single stamps. I'm so jealous to all of you that have gotten your secret kits as mine got lost in the mail.
Well anyway I think these stunning gnomes make up a bit of the dissappointment. I've been kind of tired of making cards these past few weeks but not really tired of staming and colouring...so here's what resulted from that tiredness...simple small cards all about the image. I think I'll be making these as long as I get my cardmaking mojo back and when I do I'll have the image parts ready LOL.
We've been busy building our own dream house and soon it's going to be ready. I'll have my own crafting room upstairs and I'm so excited about that. These image cards also would look gorgeous framed and made into small paintings. I guess I'll make a few atleast for my daughters room.
Thanks for looking and listening to my rambling LOL!
Hello and what a great day it is! The sun is shining and the weather is just perfect for some fun in the snow...but I had something more sunny in my mind when I made this card. It's time to Stamp with Fun again and we have a great sketch for you to follow.
So isn't Nora cute in her spring dress and those birds look like they are full of joy...I sure did have fun colouring this image from WoJ's February release. The papers, button twine and swirl are also from WoJ.
I think I have found my new favourite stamp...! This cute little fellow from WoJ's upcoming March release (only a few days until you can order yours) is just so adorable. I loved colouring this image and wanted to make a simple card with it, just chose a gorgeous dp from MME's Penny Lane glitter stack and added a sentiment and some lovely button twine...also available at the WoJ store.
Hello, hello! Sorry for being so quiet here on my blog but I've been too busy in real life with work and other stuff. Today I'm home...had the day off and my daughter has a high fever so w had to saty in all day...which ment I had some time to do some crafting. This cute little fellow is a part of Whiff of Joy's new March release. Norma Fickel has drawn several gorgeous images for all of us to marvel and get creative with.
I guess if you wish to see most of the stamps already you should check out Katharina's blog as she has been busy crafting and showing previews of the new release.
There's also a great challenge at the WoJ challenge blog...the theme there is paper piecing. I wanted to try some paper piecing myself when I saw all the stunning cards there. I have cut the hat and trousers from that striped background dp and coloured he rest of the image with Promarkers. The papers are from MME. The WoJ shop has also some gorgeous button twine for sale and I have used a piece of it on this card, left it hanging quite loosely and added a charm to the end.
Hello everyone! I'm so excited... this card here is my first work ever published. It's in a russian magazine called Scrap-Info. It's all in russian but the pictures in it are all gorgeous and so inspiring.
Hello and good morning! The sun is shining so brightly today...if only it wouldn't be so cold outside. Well anyway it's now time to Stamp with Fun again. This week we have a recipe to follow and it goes as follows...3 papers, 3 flowers and one ribbon.
So here is my card. I have a cute Kneeling Willow as my image from WoJ's spring release from 2009. I have coloured my image with Promarkers and the papers are a mixture of scraps I had on my crafting table (DCWV and Papwermania). My card is so simple I kind of think it needs something more...but I couldn't decide what I wanted to add so here it is simple as the recipe stated.
Hello everyone...boy did that last week flow by so fast! well anyway it's time to set again another Stamp with Fun challenge and again we have a great sketch for you to follow.
I decided to do someything different for a change and chose an image my husband liked...I guess you can see why LOL...so here is Carmen Electrafying from KennyK. He was a bit silly afterwards and said was I really sure that this card would be ok to be shown on my blog as the image was a bit...well he's a man and men think what they think. I just thought that the image was gorgeous as it is something different from all the girlie cute images I usually use and I just love KennyK for drawing something unique and different (here's the man factor again LOL).
I did the colouring with Promarkers and used whatever leftover dp scraps I had on my table. I went over all the edges with white distress crackle paint and added a hint of distress ink for the worn down look. The amazing sentiment is from WoJ and I have attached it with clasp from Tim Holtz.
Hi, happy evening! Now it's time to Stamp with Fun...and this weeks theme is as easy as Love.
I made my card with two WoJ stamp, bith Nora and Ben are from the Valentines collection. I have stamped them onto some kraft cardstock and then coloured with Promarkers. The papers are from October Afternoon and the sentiment is from WoJ.
Hi! There's a lovely new challenge at the WoJ challenge blog...the theme is "Love is in the air". This card is actually from my last fridays tutorial but thought it needed some alone show-time also.
Henry really is the cutest little mouse ever! I loved making this card and colouring Henry was a blast..as it always is. The papers are from MME and the sentiment is from WoJ. I added a few flowers to make the card even more romantic.
