:: Spring and Bling theme ATC´s ::

 Here are a new group of ATC´s created for a swap with some of my friends. This time the theme was spring and the technique challenge bling. I played a bit with my title - It´s a spring fling thing ;)

 My feeling was all over the place when I created them! First I loved my background with Mists, Rainbow Colors and tons of layered stamps. Then I hated them when I added the glitter and beads! Then I hated them even more after adding my die-cutted Butterflies and text strips. I was all about throwing them in the bin! Then I thought that maybe splashing some Acrylic Ink will do it a bit better? And yes it did! Now I think they are all right :) 

 When you work with Mixed-media and mediums you never know how it all will turn out. That´s the fun part of it! So some of my cards are more green and some turned out more brown.
 For my background I used 13arts heavy weight cardstock. I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist Meadow Green, Lindys Stamp Gang Edelweiss Moss Green and 13arts Rainbow Color Brown.
When I added my stamps I used Archival Ink Fern Green, Olive, Coffee and Jet Black. The stamps I used are Prima Songbird Love and Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden Collection.

 To get some more texture I added small green glass beads (for nails) and Prima Micro Beads Copper. I also added Ranger Cinnamon Stickles and a loose iridescent glitter. The Butterfly is a die from Spellbinders called D-lites Flutters. I needed to add some bling for the technique challenge and I used some from Reprint in a light beige shade that I like a lot!

 The font I used for my title is called Impact Label. I doodled a bit with my favorite pen called Perma Ball from Pilot. And Last I sprinkled the cards with Acrylic Ink from Liquitex in the shades called Vivid Lime Green, Titanium White and Carbon Black.

:: ATC´s with lots of stamps ::

I started by spraying different Mists on a 12x12 white thick cardstock from 13arts. I used 13arts Ayeeda Mist Pastel Yellow, Pastel Salmon and Pastel Pink. Then I cut the cardstock in to 12 ATC´s.
I used seven of them for this design and later I will show you the other five.

I started to stamp on the background. I used lots of different stamps from Prima, Bo Bunny and Blue Fern Studios. I used my Ink pads from Archival Ink. The colors I used was Chrome Yellow, Saffron, Monarch Orange, Vermillion, Rose Madder, Magenta Hue and Jet Black. I started with the lightest color and finished with the black.
I added some older flowers from Prima that I have in glass bottles. Different glitter from 13arts and some nail glitter plus some words from Tim Holtz and they were ready. Superfun technique!

:: 13arts February challenge - Rainbows ::


Today my layout is made for a challenge at 13arts. The theme was rainbows and I had so much fun creating my layout! I wanted a fun and whimsical layout and I think my photo fits the theme very well. Viggo jumping around in our garden!


Thi sis the inspiration photo from 13arts. You find the challenge here.

For my background I used different sprays from 13arts. The colors I used are 13arts Ayeeda Mist Pastel Pink, Pastel Salmon, Pastel Yellow, Pastel Cobalt and Chalk Turquoise Light.
To get more depth in my background I stamped with different stamps from Prima, You Do and Darkroom door. I found some shades among my Archival inks that was almost a perfect match! The colors I used are Ranger Archival Ink Jet Black, French Ultramarine, Magenta Hue, Chrome Yellow, Forget Me Not and Monarch Orange. For every color I also used glitter in the same shade.

For this challenge it was perfect to pull out my boxes with older flowers from Prima. Yes, I have a lot of flowers from Prima ;) 

I really like the effect you get by using sewing thread!

A couple of years ago I won a challenge and in my prize there was these fab flairs. If I remember correctly they are from Umwow studio. I also used chipboards from Blue Fern Studio that I painted white with acrylic paint.

:: Prima layout for Pyssloteket and a Prima challenge::

I just love when all new stuff from Prima arrives at Pyssloteket! This is my first layout made with Love Clippings and Wild and Free. You find most of my supplies at Pyssloteket.

I also took on Primas February challenge.



I cut one of the papers in many different pieces and layered them behind my photo.

All of my flowers on the layout rae from Prima. Most of them from the same collctions as the papers.

I just love when you can play with your papers and find new ways to use them! Here I cut out some words and made an arrow. 

Same here. I cut out some words and used them as my title. I also added a little Butterfly. All Butterflies on my layout got a coat of pink Copic Marker to get them a little bit more pink.

Lovely layers of papers and flowers.
On my background I used different Sprays and Prima Haevy Gesso with a Stencil also from Prima. Before the Gesso dried I sprinkled a bit of Art Sugar from prima. It gives a nice sparkle. To get some more contrasts I also used some of my stamps from Prima. The black doilies are die-cutted with a die from Prima. Lots of stuff from Prima here  and I really like it!!

:: More than words and Mixed Media Place challenges ::


Finally something new in my blog! I have been a bit under the weather for some time now with no energy at all! I needed iron for my anemia and got a drip last monday. So help me hope that I´m soon will feel a bit better!  I have created some projects but the energy to take photos wasn´t there.
Enough of complaining and lets talk about the fun stuff! My layout :) I took on two different challenges from More than words and Mixed media place.
February challenge at More Than Words


February challenge at Mixed Media Place.


I loved the color scheme at the Mood Board from Mixed Media Place! I also got inspired by the feathers and coffee stain. I ued papers from 13arts and lots of different mediums as Rinbow colors, Mist, Texture Paste and glitter.

I painted the feathers from Prima with Distress Paint Black Soot. Before the paint was dry I sprinkles glitter over them. Behind my photo I also made a circle with black wire from Prima.

I used Prima 3D Matte Gel as base for my glass beads from Panduro, Micro Beads Copper and Glass Glitter Copper from Prima. Love the effect!

I used a bit older flowers from Prima and Lillies from Wild Orchid Crafts.

To get the brown texture I mixed Texture Paste and brown Rainbow Color.

I added diluted Mist on the corrugated cardbord to get more of the teal color.

The copper and the oil color effect is so pretty!
For the challenge at More than words you needed to use the word TOGETHER and also incorporate a ampersand in some way. I did that in my title - Together we are fun and silly.

:: ATC from outerspace ::

❤ ❤❤ HAPPY VALENTINES DAY ❤❤❤

 Today I have some really playful and corny ATC´s to show you! 
I´m in two different swap groups with friends and every month there is a new theme. In one of my groups the theme was space and the technique was resist technique. It took me a while to figure out what I wanted to do! This is how they turned out :)

 I have saved most of my small Quic Kutz dies and now they came in handy! I found the super cute aliens! I die cutted them in black cardstock.

To incorporate the resist technique I used a stencil from Crafters Workshop called Mini Basic Circles. I also used my Distress Ink mini pads in Carved Pumpkin and Squeezed Lemonade. I applied them with my blending tool. I used my heating tool to get it really dry. Then I stamped the word HOPE with a stamp from a Bo Bunny set called Amen stamp. Next I used the stencil again but this time with Prima Art Basics 3D matte gel. With this technique I seal the yellow moon.

Next step was to add blue shades of Distress Ink to get the sky. I blended Faded Jeans, Stromy Sky and Shipped Sapphire. Because I sealed the moon I can add the blue colors over the moon and then wipe it off with a baby wipe. To get some sparkle I added lots of glitter in blue, silver and gold. I also added blue Caviar beads. Last I added gold star sequins and my words to get a whole sentence. I hope my friends will like my cute aliens!

:: ATC´s with stamps from Lavinia ::

I have seen cards made with Lavinia stamps for some years now and you can also find them at Pyssloteket now. I use them in my own style :)

I stamped the Zen Houses and the colored them with my Copics. Then I did some fussy cutting. I also painted my houses with Wink of Stella clear glitter.

For my background I first covered blue crdstoc with different washi tape. Then I used Bo Bunny Glitter Paste Licorice and Tim Holtz Brick stencil. When it all had dried I added Cheese cloth and Gel Medium.

Last I sprinkled lots of glass beads, silver caviar beads and different silver glitter. My words are from Tim Holtz chit chat stickers.

:: ATC´s flowers and snowflakes ::

I´m really loving my ATC´s! I have so many ideas that I want to try! Here I used the Glitter Paste from Bo Bunny again. This time I used the color called Caribbean. A really pretty blue color! When I used the stencil it was some left from the black Glitter Paste. That gave me a cool shadow! 

Maybe it´s a bit strange to combine flowers and snowflakes? But I don´t care because I like it!
My flowers are from Petaloo and the snowflakes from Wycinanka. I first painted my snowflakes with Bo Bunny Glitter Paste licorice and then I added even more losse glitter before the paste dried. I added Gel Medium randomly and sprinkles 13arts Glassfillers and blue glitter.

:: Pyssloteket ATC and Tags ::

I´ve made this tag as DT work for Pyssloteket. We have two weeks with a embossing folders theme. I don´t use them that often so this was a challenge for me! I wanted to create in a clean and simple style so the embossed patterns really show!
Beautiful flowers from Prima Rossi Belle and pearls from Petaloo.
My Embossing folder is from WRMK and called Quilted. You can find it at Pyssloteket.

My papers are from Echo Park collection Just Be You. Thickers from American Crafts.

I also made some really clean and simple ATC´s. I think I enjoy make them with a bit more stuff on ;) but I show how you can play with two different folders here.

I used two Embossing folders from my own stash and I also used the kite from Lawn fawn. They were too simple in my eyes so I added some white rhinestones and word stickers from Tim Holtz.
