DT-call!


Good night everyone! Well, it's around Midnight when I write this post and it will probably be filled with spelling misstakes and other strange typing errors. Well, so that's no difference from my normal posts. LoL

Today am I bringing you some good news if you're looking to join the best design team out there. ;) Over at the Paper Shelter am I running a design team call. We are looking for a few new designers to join our happy and easy going team. We have two parts; the A and the B-team. Clever, right? But we funktion as one and help eachother when needed. So if you feel up to it, take a look over at the Paper Shelter Challenge blog and read the longest DT-call text out there. Maybe you feel that it's YOU we're looking for. Take the chance and apply to our lovely team.

Love n hugs

Any sentiment except birthday

Morning everyone! Time for a new Aud Sentiment posting for me. Can't believe that two weeks already has passed me by. It's the turn of the B-team of the Aud sentiment challenges to give you some new fresh inspiration. On you creation we would love to see a sentiment that isn't birthday related.


This time we're sponsored by Stamp Art Design. The winner have a chance of winning five of these sweet images.  Nice right? Great! Then take some time and make a card for our challenge and you are half way there!

For my card I have used the super cute image called Snow Mail. I just love my snow men and for this one I had the perfect sentiment made by our own MC. Sending snowy hugs could come from no one other than a sweet looking snow man.


I have coloured my snowy friend with my Letraset Markers. Also a tiny touch of Prisma Pens is used for a little more shadowing.Thank godness that I picked an image with little to colour as my hands are so unstable at the moment. But everything works out, just takes a bit of extra time. I have used designer papers from NitWit collections. I think that they are from two different sets. Sorry I am a bit blur in my mind because of my meds, don't saying that I wouldn't be if I wasn't taking them. LoL

To ad details to my card I used a whole bunch of bits and pieces that I have been keeping since last winter season. So my snowy trees, wing covered with glitter and embossing powder, and snow flake has been ready to find their card a long time. But better late than never right? The snow flake border with gem stones is new for this "winter". Doily and ribbon is also from my stash.

Ok my friends. This was all from me for today. It was good seeing you all again. Please come back soon and I try to have something ready for you to see. I'm entering my final stadge of studies at the moment so I am fairly busy with that, but you never know. Take care!

Love n hugs

Stars or hearts

Morning everyone! A new card for you today. Today is TPS-day here on my blog and for this new challenge over at the Paper Shelter, which by the way has the theme of Stars and/or hearts, have I made a card using both. 

We are quite a few who has used the same image for this challenge so there is plenty of different inspiration going on for the challenge and the image "Reach for the stars". I however couldn't help myself and used DP's with hearts on to pair up with the image. They come from an old collection from Bildmålarna that I really love. 



I have coloured my image on some craft card with prisma pens this time. I had a period of doing that and this is a left over from that period. I have only used a few die cuts to decorate the card with. The star border is from Magnolia and the stars in the corners are made with a Joanna Sheen confetti die.

Sweet and short today as Philip my youngest is home from school having fever for the third day in a row. Wonder when it will break? And will Willy stay of the cold? The story continues. And I who just started a new class. It will be late work tonight I think. Sorry about by photo by the way, a very bright sun of fall is shining today. I need to learnn how to handle this. I am still working with my messy craft room to give it some more space hopefully and to that I hope it will come a place to take better photos. :)

Enjoy your day!

Back to school

It's that posting week again. You know the weeks when I have all my cards up and then it gets empty for a week and then I am back again. And as you read this it's I'm back week again. LoL And our theme for the week over at PFP is also about being back, "Back in School" that is. So if you use Letraset Markers to colour your images you are more than welcome to join us. Here in Sweden we're already in our third week back in school and with that comes the colds. So this week has started with a sick kid and a tired mum. Oh, I am just hoping that I will stay off the cold. I don't have the time to be sick now. In a month or so yes, but not now. LoL


So my card then. Well, it's not that nice. You really should go and check out what my teamies has done for this challenge. They totally rocked it. Myself well, it's a card at least. I have used a lovely image from the Paper Shelter for this creation and it's called Vintage Teacher. I kind of had trouble colour this one in with my strange behaving hands and since I didn't want to start over a third time, I gave the vintage teacher a smart board instead of a slate. A modern vintage lady. I also ended up in the almost monochrome feeling going white, red and black. Just a dash of blue is added.

I was also clever enough to use up some Authentique designer papers that I have bought for wedding and engagement cards. So good to use up parts of the old stash. I also looked around in my big box of ribbons and found some old felt ribbon that I could use. A few pearls and some letters and numbers and I finally managed to finish this card off in the nick of time.


Sponsoring this challenge is Whiff of Joy stamps. I think the prize is one stamp that is in stock. Have to confirm this later on.

Anyway, I hope that you will come and join me and the rest of the PFP crew for this weeks challenge. Can't wait to see you around!

Love n hugs
Marie

Let it go

What a name for a challenge is that you wonder? Well,  if you have seen the super cute Disney movie "Frozen", the you understand the theme we have tis time over at Aud Sentiments. The theme is set so that you can show us your favourite time of the year. We are all going for winter here as we have used these lovely images from Sassy Studio designs with the two sisters showing of Anna and Elsa. Yepp, I know, I have the movie and all of the family loves it to bits. Every one should live a bit like Olaf, the snow man in the movie, "Some people are worth melting for".

And this is my first card for Aud Sentiment Challenge blog. I am so looking forward to working with this team. And it will be a challenge using sponsor images and there is sentiments to be used as well... I hardly ever have those on my cards. It will be a great challenge and so much fun. I am so grateful that I got to join this fun and charming team.

My card then. I had a tiny bit of trouble with this one as I love the movie and didn't want to destroy the lovely look of the new Queen and the pricess. So what to do. I used the snow queen but only a part of it and coloured that part in with my Letraset markers and then made the card really simple, but hopefully nice.

I used a doubble sided designer paper from Panduro and turned the back side out so that the inside would get a little life as well with the snowflakes printed there. I then took my image and cut it to a good size for the card and glued it down. Then came some left overs from some other piece. It was just a little piece left of that pearly icy thing and it looked good with the snow queen. Then I added some silver glitter from TH. All around the other parts of the card to make it look really cold and frosty. A few snowflakes punched with a little punch from Woodware I believe. A few gem stones in the middel of them and that reinforzed the cold look of the card. I have used a swedish sentiment from Maja design, it says Winter Wishes in English.



Our sponsor for this challenge is of couse Sassy Studio Designs and they offer... Well, I kind of have to find out what that is an then update this part of the post. Anyway. I hope you come and play with us. It's so much fun isn't?

Love n hugs
Marie
