Flowers - Kukat

A little encouragement card I made with the beautiful floral stamps by Stamping Bella. The flowers are from the sets Straight Up Floral and Daisy Floral and I coloured the images with my Copic markers before die cutting them with the matching dies. I die cut the frame with Leaf Stitched Frames dies by Penny Black, added a bit of patterned paper in the background and stamped the sentiment from the Penny Black set Blooming Sentiments.

I'm entering my card to the following challenges:
* Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes
* Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Spring Mood Board
* TIME OUT Challenges: Challenge #158 - Lots or a Little Purple, optional twist 'Friendship'




Tällainen kortti syntyi parilla Stamping Bellan leimasetillä. Kukat ovat seteistä Straight Up Floral ja Daisy Floral, väritin ne Copiceilla ja stanssasin irti. Kehyksen stanssasin Penny Blackin Leaf Stitched Florals -stansseilla, laitoin taustalle kuviopaperia ja leimasin tekstileiman Penny Blackin setistä Blooming Sentiments.

Hugs - Haleja

I'm going to send some paper hugs to a friend with this card :) The image I used is Squishy Cats by Stamping Bella, I coloured it with my Copics and used the matching die to die cut it. 'Hugs' is a word die by Winnie & Walter and the frame is die cut with simple rectangle dies. To finish the card, I rounded the bottom corners.

I'm entering my card to the following challenge:
* Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes 




Tällä kortilla lähtee halaukset ystävälle :) Leimakuva on Stamping Bellan Squishy Cats, väritin sen Copiceilla ja stanssasin irti. Teksti on stanssattu Winnie & Walterin stanssilla ja taustan kehys perussuorakulmiostansseilla. Lopuksi pyöristin kortin alakulmat.

Believe in tomorrows - Uskoa huomiseen

I felt the need to just sit down, colour and make a card today to clear my mind, and this is what I made. I used the sweet Curvy Girl Gardener by Stamping Bella, coloured her with my Copics and die cut her out. For the background, I used some patterned papers and coloured cardstock and die cut the cardstock and cream coloured patterned paper with a Simon Says Stamp die to create the curvy edge. The sentiment I used comes with the Gardener stamp. To embellish the card, I used some simple twine tied into a bow.

I'm entering my card to the following challenges:
* Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes
* Addicted to Stamps and More: Challenge #382 - Make Your Mark




Tänään piti istua omien ajatustensa kanssa, joten värittelin ja tein kortin. Leimakuva on Stamping Bellan ihana Curvy Girl Gardener, jonka väritin Copiceilla ja stanssasin irti. Taustalle käytin kuviopapereita ja kartonkia, joista osan stanssasin Simon Says Stampin stanssilla kaarevaksi. Tekstileima on samaisesta Gardener-leimasetistä. Koristeena käytin vain nyöriä.

Penny Black Secret Garden: Unforgettable

I created this card with the absolutely gorgeous stamp by Penny Black called Unforgettable. I stamped it onto a panel of watercolour paper and coloured with my watercolours. I then stamped the sentiment from Blooming Sentiments set onto the upper corner and sponged some green Distress Oxide ink onto the three edges of the panel before adhering it onto kraft coloured cardstock and then my card base.

I'm entering my card to the following challenges:
* Stamping Sensations: Spring Florals (my 3rd entry)
* Addicted to Stamps and More: Challenge #381 - Anything Goes
* Happy Little Stampers Watercolour Challenge: March - Anything Goes, optional Flowers




 All stamps used are from the new Penny Black release, Secret Garden, and available in their online store:

* Blooming Sentiments (30-703)



Tämän kortin tein Penny Blackin uudella leimalla Unforgettable, jonka leimasin vesiväripaperille ja väritin vesiväreillä. Tekstileima on Blooming Sentiments -setistä. Mustetin paneelin reunoja Distress Oxide -musteella, kerrostin kartongille ja kiinnitin korttipohjaan. Käytetyt leimat ovat Penny Blackin uudesta kokoelmasta Secret Garden, joka on saatavilla nettikaupastaan, linkit tuotteisiin yllä.

It's time for a mid-way reminder at Penny Black Saturday Challenge where the theme is 'Anything Goes' with the optional theme of 'Think Spring'. There is a prize up for grabs as well, 1-2-3 Stitch is giving our winner a USD20 voucher.

I went with the optional Think Spring theme which I associate with flowers (oh I cannot wait to see flowers popping up!) and decided to use this gorgeous new floral stamp from Penny Black called Springtime Sigh. I watercoloured the image and fussy cut it out. I stamped the sentiment from the Blooming Sentiments set onto a little sign that I die cut with the new Sign set. For the background, I used a piece of patterned paper from Beau Jardins paper pad and added a pink panel die cut with Stitches of Love die. Lastly, I embellished my card with a ribbon tied into a bow and some enamel dots.




All products used are by Penny Black and available in their online store:
* Springtime Sigh (40-732)
* Blooming Sentiments (30-703)
* Sign (51-608)
* Stitches of Love (51-597)

Penny Black Saturday Challengessa ollaan jo puolivälissä. Aihe on Anything Goes ja valinnainen aihe Think Spring. Palkintokin voittajalle on, 1-2-3 Stitch lahjoittaa USD 20 -arvoisen lahjakortin voittajalle. Itse menin kevät-linjalle ja käytin korttiini tätä uutta Penny Blackin leimaa Springtime Sigh. Väritin sen vesiväreillä ja leikkasin irti. Tekstileiman Blooming Sentiments -setistä leimasin pieneen kylttiin, jonka stanssasin Sign-setin stanssilla. Taustalle laitoin kuviopaperia Beau Jardins -paperikosta ja pinkin paneelin, jonka stanssasin Stitches of Love -setin stanssilla.

Penny Black Secret Garden: Layered Leaves

I love this die from Penny Black's new release Secret Garden. It's called Layered Leaves and it's so simple and elegant. For this card, I die cut it out of white cardstock and then just glued different coloured cardstock behind the leaves, trimming off excess. I adhered it to my cardbase and stamped the sentiment from Blooming Sentiments set in yellow. I love that sentiment and think it's very apt for the unusual times we live in. I wanted to keep the card as CAS as possible so I didn't use any embellishments.

I'm entering my card to the following challenges:
* CAS Colors & Sketches: Challenge #362 - Colors
* Perfectly CAS: Challenge #7 - Die Cuts
* Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Whatever the Weather (a positive encouraging sentiment for anyone feeling under the weather)



All products used are from the new Penny Black release called Secret Garden that is available in their online store:
* Layered Leaves (51-633)
* Blooming Sentiments (30-703)




CAS-kortti uusilla Penny Black -tuotteilla, tähän käytin Layered Leaves -stanssia. Stanssasin sen ensin valkoisesta kartongista ja sitten liimasin taustalle värillistä kartonkia ja leikkasin ylimääräiset irti. Stanssattu kuvio korttipohjaan kiinni ja tekstileima Blooming Sentiments -setistä keltaisella leimattuna, siinäpä se :) Käytetyt tuotteet ovat Penny Blackin ja saatavilla nettikaupastaan, linkit yllä.

Spring green - Keväisen vihreää

My dear friend and crafty pal Nonni and I decided to challenge ourselves to make a card with the same stamped image. We chose Violet by Stamping Bella as our image and both did our cards without showing each other what we made but today is the "reveal day" :D I coloured my image with Copic markers and tried my hand in colouring folds which turned out quite well to my surprise! I also used a bit of patterned paper and a stamped and die cut sentiment (it says 'Congrats'). I embellished the card with some enamel dots and a "branch" I die cut with a Penny Black die.

I'm entering my card to the following challenges:
* TIME OUT Challenges: Challenge #157 - Birthday (Happy 6th birthday, TIME OUT!)
* Seize the Birthday: #185 - Birthday with the optional theme of Touch of Green
* Addicted to Stamps and More: Challenge #381 - Anything Goes





Ihana Nonni ja minä haastoimme toisemme tekemään kortin samalla leimakuvalla, joksi valikoitui tämä Stamping Bellan Violet. Väritin omani Copiceilla, käytin hieman kuviopaperia ja leimattua sekä stanssattua tekstiä. Koristelin kortin enamel dotseilla ja pienellä "oksalla", jonka stanssasin Penny Blackin stanssilla (leikkasin vain stanssatun kuvion kahtia).
