AAA Birthday #15: July - Heinäkuu



We have a new challenge starting at AAA Birthday and this month we'd love to see anything '3D'. We have Rachelle joining us as our Guest Designer.

I have to confess, I'm not good at making pop-up boxes or diorama cards so I interpreted 3D as being anything that is not flat but is raised from the surface and created my card with this in mind. I created the background by masking the bottom left hand corner and sponging some Distress Oxide ink onto the cardbase. As my focal point, I have the cute hedgie from the new Penny Black set called Critter Delights (30-711), I coloured him with my Zig markers and fussy cut him out. I did the same to the bouquet he is holding, it's from the set Refreshing (30-695). I then popped them up on some foam adhesives. The sentiment is from the set Carefree Wishes (30-700), I heat embossed it onto a strip of dark brown cardstock and then adhered it onto the cardbase with foam adhesives. I embellished the card with some enamel dots.

Please do pop by AAA Birthday to see the gorgeous cards created by my team mates and our wonderful Guest Designer and don't forget to join us!

I'm also entering my card to the following challenge:
* Stamping Sensations: July- All Creatures Great and Small




Heinäkuun haaste AAA Birthdayssä on 3D ja Guest Designerina on Rachelle.

Itse en ole haka tekemään kovinkaan erikoisia 3D-kortteja, joten tulkitsin 3D:n tarkoittavan mitä tahansa koholla olevaa ja se mielessä tein korttini. Korttipohjaan maskasin alavasemman kulman ja mustetin korttipohjaa Distress Oxide -musteella. Leimakuvat on Penny Blackin uusia leimoja, siili on Critter Delights (30-711) -setistä ja kimppu Refreshing (30-695) -setistä. Väritin molemmat Zigeillä, leikkasin irti ja kiinnitin korttipohjaan tarrapaloilla. Teksti on Carefree Wishes -setistä, embossasin sen ja kiinnitin korttipohjaan niin ikään tarrapaloilla. Koristeiksi muutama enamel dotsi.

AAA Birthdayssä kannattaa käydä kurkkaamassa DT:läisten ja Guest Designerin kortit ja tietysti osallistua itse haasteeseen.

The Flower Challenge #46: July - Heinäkuu



 A new challenge is starting at The Flower Challenge and for the month of July our theme is Summer/Winter. You can draw inspiration from specific flowers of the season, or colours, or anything specific to the season, as long as you use floral stamps as your main focal point.  We have Mac Mable joining us as our Guest Designer.

I chose summer as my theme and I'm not sure if there is anything more summery than a field of flowers. That in mind I picked this gorgeous floral stamp by Stamping Bella, it's called Floral Forest Backdrop. I coloured it with my Copic markers and added some white gelly roll pen here and there. I matted the panel onto a piece of black cardstock before adhering it to my purple cardbase. I stamped my sentiment ('Congratulations') onto a strip of cardstock and adhered it in place. Lastly, I embellished my card with some sequins.

Please do pop by The Flower Challenge blog to see the cards created by my team mates for your inspiration. And don't forget to join us!

I'm entering my card to the following challenge:
* Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Bright and Cheerful




Heinäkuun aiheena The Flower Challengessä on Summer/Winter ja Guest Designerina meillä on Mac Mable.

Itse valitsin teemaksi kesän ja koska mikään ei ole kesäisempää kuin kukkapelto, valitsin leimakuvaksi tämän Stamping Bellan Floral Forest Backdropin, jonka väritin Copiceilla. Kerrostin paneelin mustalle kartongille ennen liilaan korttipohjaan kiinnittämistä ja lisäsin tekstin. Koristelin kortin paljeteilla.

PBSC: July - Heinäkuu

It's time for the July challenge over at Penny Black Saturday Challenge and the theme is, as always, Anything Goes. The optional theme is Nature. We have an amazing Guest Designer as Loll is joining us this month. There is also a prize for the winner, a $20 voucher to 1-2-3 Stitch!

I went with the optional theme of Nature and used a new stamp from the fabulous new release by Penny Black, Refreshing. The stamp is called Grown with Love. I stamped it onto watercolour paper and coloured it with my Zig markers. I also added some accents with my white gelly roll pen and a bit of sparkle to the water (but of course it's not visible in the photo...). I die cut a window to my cream coloured panel with Stitched Circles die and matted the two panels together before adhering them to my cardbase. I heat embossed the sentiment that comes with the Grown with Love stamp set onto a strip of dark brown cardstock, adhered it in place and embellished it with two little hearts die cut with Hearts Galore die.







All stamps and dies used are by Penny Black and available in their online store:
* Grown with Love (30-713)
* Stitched Circles (51-551)
* Hearts Galore (51-492)





Heinäkuun haaste on alkamassa Penny Black Saturday Challengessä ja aihe on, kuten aina, Anything Goes, vapaavalintainen aihe on Nature. Palkinto on voittajalle luvassa, $20 lahjakortti  1-2-3 Stitch!:iin.

Tein vapaavalintaisen teeman mukaan luontoaiheisen kortin ja käytin siihen uutta leimaa, Grown with Love, Penny Blackin uudesta kokoelmasta Refreshing. Väritin leimakuvan Zigeillä ja lisäilin valkoista geelikynää sinne tänne ja kimalletta veteen (vaikka se ei kuvassa näykään..). Paneeliin stanssasin ikkunan Stitched Circles -setin stanssilla ja kiinnitin paikoilleen. Tekstileima on Grown with Love -setistä, embossasin sen kartonkisuikaleelle, kiinnitin paikoilleen ja koristelin parilla sydämellä, Hearts Galore -stanssilla stanssatut.  Kaikki tuotteet ovat Penny Blackin ja saatavilla nettikaupastaan, linkit yllä.

After watercolouring I masked the upper right hand corner and sponged some Distress Oxide ink onto the cardbase. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the new Trust Me Builder sentiment set.

I coloured the images with my Zig markers again and sponged some Distress Oxide ink to the sky. I stamped the sentiment from Carefree Wishes sentiment set and added a tiny heart next to it die cut with Hearts Galore die. For the green hill I used patterned paper from Beau Jardins paper pad.

The sun is an extra die that comes with Yummy Cut Out, I die cut it and coloured it with Copics as well. For the background, I die cut the panel using the new frame dies called Dainty Dashes and sponges some Distress Oxide ink to it.

For the background, I sponged some green Distress Oxide ink and stamped  a leafy branch from the set Soulful Silhouettes with the same ink. I die cut the frame with Dainty Dashes frame dies and stamped the sentiment from the Words of Encouragement sentiment set. I also added a little heart next to the sentiment, I die cut it with Bear-y Much Cut Out dies.

The Flower Challenge #45: Reminder - Muistutus




We're midway through our June challenge at The Flower Challenge with the theme of 'Navy + One Other'. Our Guest Designer is Jenny Hall.

This time I went with navy and grey as my colours with white as the neutral colour.  I used Country Charisma stamp set (30-690) by Penny Black with the matching dies (Country Charisma Cut Out 51-634), and coloured the images with my Copics. For the background, I die cut a frame with Framed (51-622) die set by Penny Black. For the sentiment I combined a stamp from Only You (30-666) sentiment set with the die cut 'you' cut with For You dies (51-105), I heat embossed the stamped part of the sentiment.

Please do swing by The Flower Challenge blog to see all the wonderful inspiration created by my team mates and our Guest Designer, and don't forget to join in with your floral cards.




Puolessa välissä ollaan The Flower Challengen kesäkuun haastetta, jonka aiheena on värit 'navy + one other'. Guest Designerina meillä on Jenny Hall.

Käytin korttiini Penny Blackin leimasettiä Country Charisma stansseineen (30-690 ja 51-634), väritin leimakuvat Copiceilla. Taustalle stanssasin kehyksen Framed (51-622)-stanssisetin stanssilla.
