Seven - Seitsemän

My son is turning seven soon so I made him this birthday card. I chose the stamp Friendship by Penny Black as he loves dogs and would like to have one. However, we have two 'senior citizen' cats, so I think it's best not to shock them with a puppy just now.. Anyways, I coloured the image with my Copics and die cut it with its matching die, Friendship Cut Out. The sun is die cut with a die from that set too. I then die cut a couple of circle frames and adhered a bit of vellum behind them, and placed a bit of patterned paper in the background. Lastly, I adhered everything in place and added a number 7 to the sun.

I'm entering my card to the following challenges:
* The Male Room: Challenge #127 - Anything Masculine Goes
* Inkspirational: Challenge 204 - Fauna









Tämän kortin tein pian 7 vuotta täyttävälle pojalleni. Penny Blackin Friendship-leiman valitsin, koska poika pitää koirista ja haluaisi sellaisen itselleenkin. Meillä vain on kaksi kissavanhusta, joita ei viitsi järkyttää koiranpennulla... Leimakuvan väritin Copiceilla ja stanssasin irti. Auringon stanssasin Friendship Cut Out -stanssin mukana tulevalla 'ekstra-stanssilla' ja siihen lisäsin numeron 7. Sitten stanssasin pari ympyräkehystä, joiden taakse kiinnitin vellumia. Taustalle hieman kuviopaperia ja kaikki osaset kiinni.

Penny Black Share the Love: Potted Passion

Potted Passion is what this new stamp by Penny Black is called. A really lovely image, I think, and suitable for all kinds of cards, not just Valentine's or love themed. I coloured the image with my Copic markers and added a tiny bit of white gel pen to it before die cutting the panel with Stitches of Love die. I matted the panel onto kraft cardstock as I did to the patterned papers (from the paper pad Beau Jardins) in the background. The sentiment is from the same Potted Passion mini stamp set, I stamped it onto a strip of kraft cardstock. I embellished the card with a bit of twine tied into a bow and some hearts die cut with Bear-y Much Cut Out die.

Penny Black Share the Love: Up and Away

I'm sharing the love again with a new stamp from the new Penny Black release called - yes! - Share the Love. This time I decided to make a friendship card with this sweet heart balloon image called Up and Away. I stamped it onto a panel of kraft cardstock, masked the circle around it and sponged some Distress Oxide ink to the panel to create a circular frame. I then coloured the image with my Copic markers. I heat embossed the sentiment from Snippets sentiment set onto a strip of dark brown cardstock, attached it in place and added a couple of hearts as embellishments. The hearts I die cut with Bear-y Much Cut Out die. Lastly, I adhered the panel onto a white square cardbase.

Penny Black Share the Love: Fur-Ever Yours & Bear-y Much

I have loads of bear-y cuteness to share today! I made two cards with two different stamps from the new Penny Black release called Share the Love, both feature a very cute bear. The circle card below features Fur-Ever Yours stamp, I just love that cute bear declaring his love with all his might! I watercoloured him and cut him out with the matching die, Fur-Ever Yours Cut Out. I stamped the sentiment from Bear-y Much stamp set, half of it onto the heart and half of it onto the white sentiment strip. I then die cut the circle cardbase and the patterned paper (from Painted Blooms paper pad) circle with regular circle dies and the white doily-looking circle with Penny Black's Stitched Square & Circles die. I tied a bit of baker's twine around the smallest circle and attached the circles and the bear in place. Using Bear-y Much Cut Out, I die cut different sized hearts out of pink cardstock and attached them in place. Lastly, I added some sticky back pearls to the hearts.

I'm entering my card to the following challenges:
* Penny Black Saturday Challenge: January - Anything Goes, optional Something New (new stamps and dies)
* Watercooler Wednesday: WWC253 - Anything Goes with a Feminine Twist




For the second card, I used the new stamp Bear-y Much. I coloured it with my watercolours as well and die cut it out using Bear-y Much Cut Out. For the background, I used some patterned paper from Beau Jardins paper pad and a panel that I die cut with the new Stitches of Love die. I used sentiment from the new sentiment set Hug Me (I only used a part of it, the whole sentiment says 'Be mine. Hug me. Kiss me.') and stamped it onto a strip of white cardstock. I embellished the card with a heart die cut with Bear-y Much Cut Out and a paper clip that I die cut with Just a Note die set.

Penny Black Share the Love: Winsome Wreath

I'm sharing the love again with new stamps from the new Penny Black release called Share the Love. This time I used the gorgeous floral wreath called Winsome Wreath - it's such a beautiful stamp and so lovely to colour. For the first card, I used the whole stamp and coloured it with my watercolours before die cutting the panel with a square die from the set Stitched Square & Circles. I then stamped the sentiment from the new Only You sentiment set inside the wreath, and matted the panel onto some dark pink cardstock before adhering it onto pale grey cardbase. I didn't add any embellishments as I wanted the stamped image to be in the spotlight.

I'm entering my card to the following challenges:
* Penny Black and More: January - Make It Feminine
* Happy Little Stampers Watercolour Challenge: January - Anything Goes
* Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Something New (new stamps)



For the second card I folded my cardbase out of sturdy watercolour paper and stamped part of the wreath on the upper right hand corner before colouring it with my watercolours. I sponged some Distress Oxide ink around the stamped image and splattered a bit of purple watercolour on the card front. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Grateful Sentiments set.




All stamps and dies used are by Penny Black and available in their online store:
* Winsome Wreath (40-721)
* Only You (30-666)
* Grateful Sentiments (30-547)
* Stitched Square & Circles (51-422)




Tämä uusi Penny Blackin Winsome Wreath -leima on i-h-a-n-a! Todella kaunis ja kiva väritettävä. Ensimmäiseen korttiin leimasin sen kokonaan näkyville, väritin vesiväreillä  ja stanssasin paneelin Stitched Square & Circles -setin neliöstanssilla. Tekstileima on uudesta Only You -setistä, leimasin sen kranssin keskelle. Sitten kerrostin paneelin tummanpinkille kartogille ja kiinnitin vaaleanharmaaseen korttipohjaan.

Toiseen korttiin taittelin korttipohjan vesivärikartongista ja leimasin vain osan kranssia näkyviin yläkulmasta. Väritys taas vesiväreillä, hieman Distress Oxide -mustetta leimakuvan ympärille ja perään muutama vesiväriroiske. Tekstileima on Grateful Sentiments -setistä ja sopii hyvin ystävänpäiväkorttiin.

AAA Birthday: January - Tammikuu




The first challenge of the new year and the new decade is starting at AAA Birthday and we have a fun one for you - a shaker card! As our Guest Designer, we have Vita Thai. I encourage you to check out her Instagram account and leave her some crafty love!

Instead of playing with foam adhesives, I decided to make a sort of a faux shaker card again. So I took a small cellophane bag, cut a piece of patterned paper that fitted inside it, and added my sequins in there. I really like it this way as the sequins won't fall to the bottom of the shaker part but instead 'float' around the cellophane bag. The stamped image I used is Curvy Girl Gardener by Stamping Bella, I love it and bought it for myself as a birthday treat :) I coloured it with my Copic markers and used the matching die to die cut it. For the background, I used patterned paper in pretty rainbow colours. The sentiment I used says 'Congrats' in Finnish, I stamped it onto a banner die cut with an MFT die.



Here's a close up of the Gardener.




I hope you'll join us on our first challenge of 2020! Please visit AAA Birthday for the details on how to play along and to view the gorgeous cards created by my fab teamies.


On vuosikymmenen ensimmäisen haasteen aika AAA Birthdayssä ja teemana on shaker-kortit. Guest Designerina meillä on Vita Thai.

Sen sijaan, että olisin tehnyt perinteisen shakerin, päätin huijata hieman. Otin pienen sellofaanipussin, leikkasin sinne sisälle palan kuviopaperia ja lisäsin paljetit sinne. Tällä tavoin paljetit pysyvät "leijumassa" eivätkä putoa shaker-osion pohjalle. Raamit sille stanssasin Hero Artsin stansseilla. Leimakuvana käytin Stamping Bellan Curvy Girl Gardener -leimaa, jonka väritin Copiceilla. Taustalle hieman sateenkaaripaperia ja tekstileima MFT:n stanssilla stanssattuun banneriin ja kortti oli valmis.

AAA Birthdaystä löytyy ohjeet osallistumiseen ja DT-porukan inspiraatiokortit. Kannattaa käydä kurkkaamassa ja osallistua! :)

Penny Black Share the Love: Key to Kindness, part 3

Well, I did tell you that I love the new Key to Kindness stamp set by Penny Black, didn't I? So much so that I made a third card with it! This time I used the wreath from the set, coloured it with my Copics again and fussy cut it out. Then I stamped the sentiment from the new Only You sentiment set inside the wreath and added a tiny heart inside the O, I die cut it using Hearts Galore die. I added a doily behind the wreath (now that I found them again, I'm using them all the time!) and a bit of patterned paper from the Gentle Whisper paper pad which I matted onto pale pink cardstock before adhering it to my square cardbase.

I'm entering my card to the following challenges:
* Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Something New (new stamps)
* Cute Card Thursday: Challenge #615 - Anything Goes
* Stamping Sensations: January - Favourite Stamps (this stamp set is my new favourite)
* Penny Black and More: January - Make It Feminine




All stamps, dies and patterned paper that I've used are by Penny Black and available in their online store:
* Key to Kindness (30-665)
* Only You (30-666)
* Gentle Whisper (80-008)
* Hearts Galore (51-492)




Tästä uudesta Penny Blackin leimasetistä on tullut varma suosikkini, tämä on jo kolmas kortti, jonka sillä teen. Setti on siis Key to Kindness ja tällä kertaa käytin siitä tuota ihanaa kranssia. Väritin sen Copiceilla ja leikkasin irti. Kranssin sisälle leimasin tekstileiman setistä Only You ja lisäsin pienen sydämen O:n sisään, se on stanssattu Hearts Galore -stanssilla. Kranssin taustalle taas doily ja hieman kuviopaperia Gentle Whisper -paperikosta, kerrostus vaaleanpunaiselle kartongille ja sitten kiinni korttipohjaan. Kaikki käytetyt tuotteet ovat siis Penny Blackin ja saatavilla nettikaupastaan, linkit tuotteisiin yllä.
