:: 13arts January challenge ::

I love working with fun and really good mixed-media supplies! If you also add a really fun challenge to that recepie I´m a really happy gal!
I have lots of ATC´s in progress at my studio and I really enjoy making them! For the January challenge at 13arts I wanted to make a more "grown up" color scheme. I was inspired by the hearts and the glitter. I also used some pink. Me and my hubbie have been together for almost twenty-five years now and I love him to the moon and back ♥ On my ATC´s I wanted to add some important words how to be successful in love. You find the challenge at 13arts HERE!

I have used lots of supplies from 13arts here! Almost everything is from 13arts! I started with 13arts heavy weight cardstock. They are really good if you use lot of fluid stuff on your work. I added brown Rainbow Color and Water Ink Violet. I also used the brown Rainbow Color with 3d Magic Powder. I spread the brown mixture over some Mesh to get some interesting textures.

When my first layer was dry I added Cheese Cloth and Gel Medium. I wanted more texture and a bit 3d effect. With some more Gel Medium I sprinkled Glass Beads around the Cheese Cloth. Then I dripped Bordeaux Ink over the Cheese Cloth and Glass Beads. 

My hearts are from Wycinanka and colored with Violet Ink and Gold Ink. I sprinkled Gold Beads or Microspheres over the hearts and a bit all over.

To get some depth in my colors I used Purple Mica Flakes and for more sparkle I used the Violet Holographic Glitter. 

My words are from a Tim Holtz and called chichat. Behind them you can see some of the stamping I did. I used an old stamp from Prima together with Archival Ink Jet Black.

I really like the Gold Flitters or Glitter Gold Bars. You get really cool effect with them! Last I added even more sparkles with some Gold and Pink Ranger Stickles.

:: ATC - 2017 Color Challenge Green ::

I came up with an idea that I will create ATC´s in different colors during 2017. And then I thought it would be fun if others would join me! If you have Instagram you find the challenge under #atccolorchallenge2017 and #atccolorchallenge2017green. It´s extra fun if you also tag me @ulrikablomfelt. It would be so much fun if you also joined in! And make sure to spread the challenge!

Here is my first color GREEN! 
You can make as many card as you like. You can make them in any style as you like as long as green is the main color. The only rule besides the colors is that you need to label your cards with the name of the current color. You can see here how I did with GREEN. You can trade them with any one you like or you can just keep them. 

 I couldn´t make up my mind what looked best. The dark or the light background so I used both :)

 I started with a green patterned paper and stamped randomly with green, brown and black. My favorite stamp pads for Mixed-media is Archival Ink. I used stamps from Prima and Darkroom Door.

 Then I inked the corrugated cardboard with Distress Ink Peeled Paint. I painted my trees from Wycinanka with 13arts Acrylic Ink Splash Green Glitter. I also used ephemera pieces from Prima.

 Around the edges I used green glitter and green Mica flakes. I used 13arts Gel Medium to attach the glitter and Mica flakes. My stickers are from My Mind´s eye. Gold thread from my stash.

:: ATC Flourish Your Heart ::

I´m in two different ATC swap groups with friends. This series of ATC is created for one of them. January theme was- Use a heart but not a red heart and some kind of die-cutted element. I made my own backgrounds with a cool stamp I bought at the Asian museum in Stockholm. I used black Acryli paint and Mist. Some of the cards are more turquoise and purple and some are more purple.

Hera are the one in turquoise and purple/lilac. I think I like the purple ones a little bit more. I have used glass beads and glitter from 13arts. The purple caviar beads are for nails but works really well on your mixed-media work!

 I made my heart with wire from Prima, die-cut swirl from Spellbinders, different flowers from Prima. Some of the flowers are really old ones! I have a lot of glass bottles with flowers from Prima that I bought when I started scrapbooking. I don´t want to sell them even if they are old and you never know when they come handy, like now!

 Here are the purple ones. I used black wire here and only white and purple flowers. I also added black and lilac caviar beads. Glass beads from 13arts and lots of glitter.

:: Two cards for girls turning 40 ::

I have made a little bit larger cards today. I wanted to use Primas Julie Nutting mixed-media doll stamps and they are tall! This first card is for a girl who like fashion and interior design. I think a clean and simple stylish card will fit her personality. A mix of papers from my scrap box. I used a edge punch from Martha Stewart, letters from Papirdesign. I used my Copics for the Doll stamp.
I also used the technique that I think is called paper-piecing for her clothes. I stamped the image one more time and fussy cutted the skirt and the short jacket. For the clothes I used papers from Papirdesign. I added Glossy Accent for her shoes and Stickles on her headbands.

 My second card is for a girl who likes pink and the Eorovision Song Contest. Here I wanted glitter and glamour to fit her personality. I used a different mixed-media Doll from Prima and I used the same technique with the clothes. The edge punch is from Fiskars and my letters from Doodlebug Designs. The banner die is from Cheery Lynn and I also used rhinestone swirls from Prima. And of course I needed lots of flowers and glitter!

:: Love Lawn Fawn ::

 I really loved making Christmas cards with cute stamps and dies from Lawn fawn! Now I´m back with four cards in other themes! For two weeks Pyssloteket have a Lawn Fawn theme at the blog. You can see what the team have created with lots of stuff from Lawn Fawn!
My first card is created with a stamp set called My Silly Valentine. I also used Sitched Circles and Puffy Cloud Border. The papers I used for my first three cards are from Kaisercraft and the collection called Oh La La. I used the blue paper called Bonjour and the orange called Oui Oui. 

Look att this adorable Party Animals! I have used both stamps and dies from the sets. The frame is made from Stitched circles. The scalloped border is from the die set called Ocean Wave Border. I always try to find creative ways to use my supplies as here were I used a wave border. To get a nice edge around my card I used Stitched Rectangles Large dies.

 I long for spring and my next card makes me happy! I made my scene with both stamp and die set called Gleeful Gardens. I used Puffy Clouds and Grassy Border. The frame is made with Stitched Circles and for my stitched edges I used the same die as the Let´s Party card.
All my images are colored with my Copics.

My last card is made with only cardstock and no patterned papers. Perfect to make use for all that scraps you have! I layered Stitched Rectangles Small and Large with black and white Cardstock. Then I die-cutted the Rainbow in different colors. The clouds are from the die set called Spring Showers. The Happy Birthday stamp is from Party Animal stamp set. I like to use my Memento Tuxedo Black when I stamp for this kind of cards. When I not use my Mixed-media style. It´s also very good when you color with Copics!

:: White Monocromatic ATC´s ::

I´m in a ATC swap group with some friends and in December the theme was monocromatic and your favorite Christmas melody. Mine is about a shining star and I chose white. Not an easy color but it was fun! I started with a wood patterned embossing folder and a white cardstock. I added Ranger Stickles on the edges. I die-cutted stars with a die from Sizzix. The fun and hairy yarn I found in a box in my scrap studio.

I covered my die-cutted stars with 13arts gel medium and then i dipped them in Distress glitter Clear Rock Candy. I also added some really white beads from Panduro. White Rhinestones from Papirdesign. I really love the ones I got from my friends! In January we will create ATC´s with Stencils and birds on. I have an idea what I will create.

:: Christmas Theme ATC´s ::

I made this first as Tags when Pyssloteket had a inspirationa crop for the designteam. I taught the girls how to make some sparkling Christmas tags. Later I came up with the idea to cut the tags a bit smaller and make them into ATC´s instead. I think they are quite nice!

 For the gold/green one I used 13arts Acrylic Splash in glitter green. I also used a stencil from Tim Holtz called Tiles. My chipboard snowflakes are from Wycinanka. Most of my glassbedas and glitter are from 13arts. The tiny letters are from Kaisercraft.
For my turquoise one I also used a stencil from Tim Holtz and this one is called Bricked. You an find both the stencils at Pyssloteket. I used Prima Color Bloom Soft Teal on both chipboards and over my paper. On my snowflakes I used pearls from Papirdesign.

On my green ATC I used a stencil from Crafters workshop. I think it´s called something about Marrakesh? I used Prima Color Bloom Emerald and lots of glass beads and glitter from 13arts.
For my black one I used a stencil from Heidi Swapp called Lattice. I also used Prima Color Bloom Vintage Coal and some Acrylic Spash in silver from 13arts. Hope you like them!
