Round it up over at the Paper Shelter

Morning and hello! Time for a new creation here, second one for today. I have two dt-creations coming up every second Wednesday. This one is for my Paper Shelter team and our theme this week is "Round it up". That means we want to see round shapes on your creations. The card or what you create can be round, you can use round embellishments, round the corners etc. Just as long as it is some kind of round.

For my card have I used "Most adorable duck" pre coloured version. Soccer season is on the go and I have many meetings as well for the youth part of the club. So a busy schedule at the moment. Let me say that the coming long weekend is really welcomed by me. Hopefully will I be able to work a bit head on my coming dt-projects.


To match up all the lovely colour in this super cute image have I used a mix of designer papers from Echo Park and Carta Bella. It's just tiny bits, in my world meaning a few left over sheets left from this pads and still I can't manage to throw them away. I can use some more bits and pieces for some creations or die cuts. LoL I love how the colours came together in this card. It's perfect for a little toddler or a new born. Or just as a happy greeting for anyone who happens to love birds or ducks.

Anyway, I hope that you come and join us for this fun challenge. Just use some kind of round and you are good to go. You don't even have to colour on your own if you don't want too.

Take care and enjoy the rest of the week.

Love n hugs

Anything goes Christmas with option Plaid

Morning and hello! It's christmas time here in my blog corner again. We have a new challenge up for you over at The Merry Christmas Challenge. You can either make any Christmas card you like or you can use our optional theme of plaid. Nice and easy. Make it more challenging or not. It's totally up to you!

For this challenge have I followed the challenge and used the theme of plaid. I had an Magnolia image that I coloured ages ago with distress inks and then paired them up with some designer papers from Lawn Fawn. I don't remember if it's called Winter or what it was, but it's fairly new and it is really lovely with it's grey, white and turquoise colour combo.


It looks more like blue here but it's green blueish in real life. I have used an old sketch from Papertake Weekly. Their sketches are still a great source of inspiration for me. For decoration have I used a few of my old die cuts that is left overs from my other projects. They all go into a box where I pick them out when needed. It's so boring to bring out the die cut mashine that I always make way too much of them and keep for coming projects. 

I have also used a bunch of enamel dots both round and heart shaped. A few Card Craft candies is also used for decoration on this card. I think most of the die cuts are made with a Lawn Fawn die called Mini Snow flakes or something like that.

Well this is all from me for now. I look forward to see what you all come up with for this week's challenge. Come on over to us over at TMCC and join us for the fun!

Take care and make the most of your day!

Photoinspiration over at PFP

Morning and hello! Hope you are all doing well. It is already time for a new challenge over at PFP. Can you believe how quickly the time flies? It's not easy keeping up with the speed that's for sure. This week are we having a photo inspiration challenge up for you all to play along with.  

This is the inspirational photo. A lovely one with a blooming orchid. Take inspiration from the flowers, the shapes, the colours etc. The choise is yours, just remember that you have to use your winsor/Newton markers former known as Letraset Markers. A nice and easy one for you all to enjoy this week.

I have for once used a sponsor image. Not that often I dare to do that as I never know if I will be able to join the challenges because of the pain or not. But this time I started early but hardly didn't finish anyway. LoL The weather has gone from ice cold to super hot for the season so it has been a bit of struggle. However a few days now with really warm weather has made it better again. My joints feels good in the cold while the the fibro loves the heat and since the fibro is most active at the moment I have decided to join the good weather for now. 

Our proud sponsor this week is Time for Tea Designs and they offer 3 digis for one lucky winner for this challenge.

For my card have I use our sponsor image called Girl with Giant Icecream. Of couse have I coloured with my Letraset / Winsor & Newton markers. The desinger papers are from First Edition I think and I have absolutly no clue from which pad they are. They split as soon as you think about using of the the papers... So there I can't help you at all. 


 All the edges are distressed with some distress inks. Walnut stain I think it is. I never look at what I use, it's always the same. Then I kind of went mad with some wooden hearts and a stamp which I couldn't find the name. But I like what it says. LoL Kind of my motto. And if everything else fails, why not be happy about ice cream, right? I have also used a few pearls on the card.

Well this is all from me for today. I am totally finished now as I saw the doctor yesterday and I have trouble doing more than I normally do. So tons more tired but I am happy that I only have a three day working week. And a meeting for the soccer club, the youth section have a meeting. Well, until later...

Take care and do something that makes you happy!

Love n hugs
Marie

Die cuts over at the Paper Shelter

Morning and hello! It's time for yet another post here in my little card making corner of the world. The only problem is that I don't have my card ready at this moment. I have some bad trouble again with my joints as I had to quit taking the meds I have struggled with during the winter. I can't be in the sun without reacting to it and it doesn't have to be much of it. It's like having burn blisters under your skin. There is better things in life.

Anyway, the theme for this week is set to "Die Cuts" so our theme should be an easy one. Just use a few die cuts on your creation and you are good to go. You don't even have to do any colouring on your creation. Just add a few die cuts!


For my card have I used the image called A cheerful Hummingbird. I have used Veros pre coloured image and it's really good  quality just like all the Paper Shelter images. I highly recommend you to try them out if you have not already. You always get the pre coloured image as well as the out lined version.

I have used an old Kaiser Craft paper pad for this card. It was a perfect back drop to the colours of this image. I have used a bunch of die cuts that I had laying around. Like the Magnolia border die, the butterflies, the frame and flowers. Some glitter right on top of the gesso on the butterflies gave them a bit of structure and a doily for another fun layer. And add to that a bit of wonky adding of the layers and it's a more playful card than it would have been with straight lines.


As always do we have a gift voucher worth $30 for a lucky winner. That is if you use a TPS image. Playing with another brand gives you the chance of winning three digis of your choice.

Love n hugs

Banners or anything goes X-mas over at TMCC

Morning and hello! How are you doing? I hope everything is OK and that you have gotten some sunshine in your life. The spring is here. How I know? Soccer season is in full bloom. 

Still even if spring is here I keep going with my Christmas projects. This time it's a bit simple but from time to time you have to do those projects as well. Our new weekly challenge is up over at The Merry Christmas Challenges. The theme this week is Banners or Anything goes Christmas. 

These are a few cards/tags for gifts. I normally make a bunch of small cards for my pen friends. Yes, I still have this old fashioned hobby. I totally adore getting real letters in my little cabin shaped mailbox. It's the best thing. As good as getting a home made card in my letterbox. LoL These ones are made so I can use them as either cards or tags. I have left some plain inside and some has some sentiments. But as I prefere to keep them personal I will not show that. 

But now I hope that you feel a bit inspired to make a project for our new challenge over at The Merry Christmas challenges this week. Anything Christmas or banners also Christmas themed. 

Take care and do something that makes you happy. 

Love n hugs
Marie
