Back to the 70's :)


Hi friends!
I made this card in retroish colors yesterday following the sketch from Handmade Bliss. I tried to make a sort of a CAS version of the sketch. The stamps I used are Hennah Flowers by Altenew -one of my favorite ever stamp sets! The center flower is popped up with 3d stickers for dimension. My coloring is done with Copics. Hope you like and thanks for popping by!

Christmas in July...


Hi friends!
Here's a simple Christmas card I made with cute angels from Stampendous. I've colored them with Copics and added white details with gel pen. I also added shine to the stars, wings and " the caps" the angels are wearing. This card turned out quite cute I think -I do regret I didn't heat emboss the sentiment with gold for example, it looks a bit plain just stamped! I had several challenges in my mind when making this, see the list below. Hope you like and thanks for visiting!

New Challenge at TIME OUT!




Hi friends!
The next fortnight we have a "CASE with your own twist challenge" at TIME OUT Challenges. We are CASEing a fun, cute card by Alice from Alice's Little Wonderland. My CASE card, with the bambi, is the first card of this post and the second card with the cactus is Alice's. 

I was inspired by the cutesy style of Alice's card, the layout and Copic coloring. For my twist I changed up the color palette and the theme of the card -my Finnish sentiment says "Summer Fun". The stamps and dies come from Lawn Fawn. It says "Smile" in the speech bubble, it doesn't show too well in the photo! 

I hope to see you interpretation of Alice's card and join TIME OUT! If you need inspiration for your project, please have a look the cards our DT members and talented guest designer Rema have created. See you at TIME OUT!

New Challenge at Inkspirational!



Hi friends!
I'm fashionably about half an hour late with my DT card for Inkspirational but here it is! :) Our challenge this time is a color challenge, Anything Goes With Kraft. I always love white with kraft so I went to that direction... But decided to add pops of color with enamel dots. The white heat embossed leaf stamp comes from Papertrey Ink. I hope you like my card! Please have a look what our DT members and talented guest designer Bobby have made for the challenge here. While writing this post I saw Bobby's card for the first time -looks like we've been on the same card making brain wave! ;) Have a good weekend everyone and see you at Inkspirational!

New Challenge at TIME OUT!


Hi everyone!

We have a new challenge for you at TIME OUT Challenges:

Nature with the Optional Twist of Animals

Insects will work perfectly fine too. :) See what our DT members and talented guest designer Barb have created for you inspiration by clicking here!

In my card I've used a beautiful flower/paisley pattern stamp by B Line Designs. I've used a lot of different Copics for coloring my stamped design but I tried to match the colors so that the overall look wouldn't be super busy. I quite like the somewhat oriental look I achieved here! 

I hope you like my card and see you at TIME OUT Challenges!

I'd like to join:

Sadly this is my last DT project for STAMplorations. I've been in the design team since December 2013 (if I remember correct!) and now is time for me to move on... I've truly enjoyed playing with Shery's stamps and getting to know fun blogging people through STAMPlorations. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Shery for the possibility to be part of her team and her growing, growing, growing business! All the best for STAMPlorations and Shery. And thanks again.

New Challenge at Inkspirational!



Hi guys!
My good friend Sandie, a fellow team member at Inkspirational has chosen this theme for the next challenge: Grunge! Sandie makes amazing grunge CAS cards but for me, grunge is very terrifying... Luckily this time the card came together quite easily! If you are unsure how to bring grunge into your crafty projects, check out the challenge blog: there's a very helpful definition of the style. You'll also find inspiring projects from Ink Design Team and our very talented guest designer Ashwini.

My card is created with some STAMPlorations stamps, a small square stamp by Hero Arts, Memento inks and a couple of enamel dots. A very simple one layer. Hope you like! I hope to see you playing along and wish you all a wonderful weekend!
