Penny Black: Happy Birthday! - Hyvää syntymäpäivää!



I made a birthday card with this cutie of a mouse who seems to be flying his magic flower to deliver his birthday present :) The stamped image is from the new Critter Celebration set by Penny Black, I coloured the image with my Zig Markers and sponged a bit of blue Distress Oxide ink to the edges of the image. The sentiment is from the set Snippets. I created the frame with the new Swirly Stitches dies and attached it to the image. For the background, I used patterned paper from the Beau Jardin paper pad and a 'belt' die cut with the new Burlap Edge die. As my finishing touches, I added some small clear sequins to the image.

Challenges:
* Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Cute
* Penny Black Saturday Challenge: March - Anything Goes
* TIME OUT Challenges: Challenge #131 - Inspired by Words 'Hugs, Kisses and A Lot of Birthday Wishes'

Tämä suloinen hiiri lentää ilmojen halki maagisella kukallaan tuomaan synttärilahjaa :) Leimakuva on leimattu Penny Blackin uudella Critter Celebration -setillä, väritin sen Zigeillä ja lisäsin sinistä Distress Oxidea reunoille. Tekstileima on Snippets-setistä. Kehyksen stanssasin uusilla Swirly Stitches -setin stansseilla ja kiinnitin kuvaan. Taustalle laitoin kuviopaperia ja vyötteen, jonka stanssasin Penny Blackin uudella Burlap Edge -stanssilla.

Tulips - Tulppaanit

I had a play with my new Create a Smile stamps. These are from the Tender Tulips set and they are big and beautiful! I coloured them with my Copic Markers and fussy cut them out. On my card base, I sponged some Distress Oxide ink through a Create a Smile stencil called Scattered Hearts and added a frame die cut with a Penny Black die from the Ribbon Stackers set. I actually mounted two die cut frames on top of each other to make it a bit thicker so that it might visually stand out a bit more from the background. The sentiment is from the Uniko stamp set Pure Florals: Peony.

Challenges:
* TIME OUT Challenges: Challenge #131 - Inspired by Words "Hugs, Kisses and a lot of Birthday Wishes" (Happy 5th birthday, TIME OUT Challenges!)
* Inkspirational: Challenge #182 - Bedroom Photo (I was inspired by the yellow and tan in the photo as well as the shape of the headboard, I think the Ribbon Stackers die mimics that in a CAS way)



Käytin tähän korttiin uusia leimojani. Nämä ihanat isot tulppaanit ovat Tender Tulips -setistä, väritin ne Copiceilla ja leikkasin irti. Korttipohjaan tein sydämiä Distress Oxide -musteella ja Create a Smilen Scattered Hearts -sabluunalla. Kehykset tein Penny Blackin Ribbon Stackers -stanssilla, stanssasin kehyksiä kaksi ja kiinnitin ne päällekkäin. Tekstileima on Unikon Pure Florals: Peony -setistä.

Peony - Pioni

I was recently lucky enough to win at Less Is More Challenge and as my prize, I chose the Pure Florals: Peony set from Uniko and what a gorgeous set it is! I just had to make a card with it as soon as it arrived. I stamped the largest peony from the set on X-Press It blending card and coloured it with my Copic Markers. I die cut the panel with a die from the Stitched Square and Circles set by Penny Black, added some Distress Oxide ink with my brush to the edges, stamped the sentiment (it's from the same Uniko set as is the flower) and added some clear sequins. For the background I used a piece of patterned paper.

Challenges:
* Uniko: Challenge #52 - Spring (not sure when peonies are supposed to bloom, but for me spring means flowers, so I hope this qualifies)
* Addicted to Stamps and More: Challenge #332 - Make Your Mark
* Allsorts Challenge Blog: Week 511 - Favourite Stamp (florals in general are my favourites and my favourite stamp is usually the newest I have ;) )
* Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Feminine/Girly


Voitin hiljattain Less Is More -haasteessa ja palkinnokseni valitsin tämän ihanan Pure Florals: Peony -setin Unikolta. Väritin pionin Copiceilla, stanssasin paneelin irti Penny Blackin Stitched Square and Circles -setin stanssilla, lisäsin vähän Distress Oxidea reunoihin ja leimasin tekstin (joka on samasta Unikon setistä kuin kukkakin). Taustalle laitoin kuviopaperia ja koristeeksi kirkkaita paljetteja.

The Flower Challenge #30 - Reminder


It's reminder time over at The Flower Challenge. Our theme this month is nice and easy: anything goes! For my card, I used Gardenia Blooms Journaling Card by Neat and Tangled which I coloured with my Copic Markers. The sentiment is a die cut one, I used Create a Smile die for that. For the background I used some Lili of the Valley patterned paper and used some clear sequins as my embellishments. I also rounded two corners of the card with a corner chomper.

Please visit The Flower Challenge blog for all the details on how to play along with us, you'll have until March 25th to do so.


On aika muistutella The Flower Challengen maaliskuun haasteesta. Teema on helppo: mikä tahansa käy. Omaan korttiini käytin Neat and Tangledin Gardenia Blooms Journalin Card -leimaa, väritin sen Copiceilla. Teksti on Create a Smilen stanssilla stanssattu, taustalla Lili of the Valleyn kuviopaperia ja koristeina jokunen paljetti. Kortin kulmia pyöristin corner chomperilla.

The Flower Challenge -blogissa on tarkemmat ohjeet osallistumiseen, aikaa on 25.3. asti.

Roses on your special day - Ruusuja merkkipäivänäsi

I decided to play along with a few challenges today and create this floral card. The stamps I've used are by Winnie & Walter, except the sentiment (it says 'On your special day' in Finnish). I did a bit of masking to create the bouquet and then coloured the image with my Copic Markers. I die cut the panel with a Penny Black die from the set Stitched Stackers, and heat embossed my sentiment in white embossing powder. After adhering the panel to red cardbase, I added some clear sequins to embellish it.

Challenges:
* Winnie & Walter: 5th Birthday Bash - Five Challenge with Shay (Five roses)
* Winnie & Walter: 5th Birthday Bash - 3+ Stamp Set Challenge with Kelly (The roses and the different leaves are from the Winnie & Walter In Bloom stamp sets Elsa's Flora, Addie's Garden, and Anna's Flora, and then there's the Finnish sentiment)
* Addicted to Stamps and More: Challenge #331 - Anything Goes
* Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Feminine/Girly (is there anything more feminine than a bouquet of roses?)


Tämä kortti syntyi muutaman haasteen innoittamana. Ruusu-leimat ja lehdet ovat Winnie & Walterin leimoja, maskasin kahta eri kokoa ruusuja kimpuksi ja väritin ne Copiceilla. Paneelin stanssasin Penny Blackin stanssilla setistä Stitched Stackers and tekstin embossasin valkoisella. Kiinnitin paneelin tummanpunaiseen korttipohjaan ja lisäsin muutaman kirkkaan paljetin koristeeksi.

Plumeria - Temppelipuu

Sometimes I really love colouring stamped images with my Copic Markers (mostly when it's going well.. ;D ) and this was one of those times. I really like this stamp by Stamplorations, it's called Precious Plumerias, and it was a joy to colour with the Copics. I didn't want to overcrowd the image so I simply stamped my sentiment (it says 'Congratulating you'), matted the panel onto cardstock and card base, and added some sequins.

Challenge:
* Addicted to Stamps and More: Challenge #331 - Anything Goes


Vesivärit ovat minulle jotenkin helpommat, mutta joskus on kiva värittää Copiceillakin (yleensä silloin, kun se sujuu... ;D ) ja tällä kertaa se oli sekä kivaa että sujui. Tämä leimakuva on Stamplorationsin Precious Plumerias ja se on niin nätti, etten viitsinyt siihen paljoa muuta härpäkettä laittaa, vain tekstileiman ja jokusen paljetin.  
(En muuten tiedä, onko 'plumeria' suomeksi temppelipuu mutta näin google kertoi, joten sillä mennään :D )

The Flower Challenge #30



(If you're here for the Penny Black blog hop, please scroll down or click here)


It's March and that means a new challenge over at The Flower Challenge! And this time we have a nice and easy one for you - Anything Goes! So please get creating with your floral stamps and dies and join us :)

I created my card using a gorgeous floral stamp by Visible Image which I stamped on watercolour paper and coloured with my Altenew watercolours. I also used a die cut sentiment by Stamplorations, and then simply adhered the panel to dark grey card base. Clean and simple! :)

You'll find all the instructions and lots of inspiration at The Flower Challenge blog. And please do join us, you'll have until March 25th to do so.


Maaliskuun haaste The Flower Challenge -blogissa on mukavan helppo - Anything Goes eli mikä tahansa passaa, kunhan se ompi kukkaa :)

Omaan korttiini käytin Visible Imagen ihanaa kukkaa, jonka leimasin vesiväripaperille ja väritin Altenew'n vesiväreillä. Tekstinä on Stamplorationsin stanssilla stanssattu teksti. Halusin pitää kortin yksinkertaisena, joten kiinnitin paneelin kukkineen tummanharmaalle korttipohjalle ilman sen kummempia härpäkkeitä.

The Flower Challengen blogista löytyy paljon inspiraatiota ja ohjeet osallistumiseen. Aikaa osallistua on 25.3. asti.

Penny Black Timeless 2019 - Blog hop!



It's a "Party with Penny!" You're invited to join in the fun as Penny Black celebrates the release of their newest collection of stamps and dies, Timeless.

And what better way to party than a blog hop!

You should have arrived here from the talented Cathy Andronicou. If you want to start the hop from the beginning, you can go to the Penny Black blog for a complete list of all the blog hop participants. 

For my blog hop post, I decided to create two different cards with the same stamp, Flutterby (40-668). For my first card, I stamped the Flutterby (40-688) stamp onto a piece of Ranger watercolour paper with black Versafine ink and coloured it with my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolours. I also added a bit of Distress Stain in Tumbled Glass around the image. Then I created the frame with a die from the set Swirly Stitches (51-502) and adhered it to my image. I stamped my sentiment from the Snippets (30-283) set in black Versafine ink and added some clear sequins as my embellishments. For the background, I used patterned paper from the paper pad Painted Blooms (80-009).



My second card is almost a one-layer card which I created by first folding the card base from Ranger watercolour paper. I then stamped Flutterby (40-688) once, masked it with masking paper, and stamped it a second time so that the images are slightly overlapping. I removed the masking paper and coloured the image with my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolours. I also added some tiny details with my white Gellyroll gel pen. I then sponged the edges of my card slightly with Distress Oxide ink in Broken China. Lastly, I stamped the first part of my sentiment with Archival ink (Coffee) onto the card and the latter part with Versamark ink onto a strip of brown cardstock, heat embossed it in white and adhered the strip to the card. The sentiments are from the Grateful Sentiments (30-547) set.



For your convenience, here's a list with clickable links to all the Penny Black products used in these two cards. All the new products from the Timeless release are now available at the Penny Black online store.

* Flutterby (40-688)
* Swirly Stitches (51-502)
* Painted Blooms (80-009)
* Grateful Sentiments (30-547)
* Snippets (30-283)


If you'd like more inspiration using the new stamps and dies from the gorgeous new Timeless release, please scroll down my blog and see my six previous posts. Lots of floral cards using the new floral stamps! (Yes, I do like floral stamps! :D )

Penny Black Timeless 2019 - From The Garden



(Teksti suomeksi kuvien alla)

The new release by Penny Black called Timeless is full of gorgeous floral stamps and the set I used today is one of my (many!) favourites. It's called From The Garden (30-560) and it comes with matching dies, From The Garden Cut Out (51-522). I stamped the vase with the flower onto X-Press It blending card, coloured it with my Copic markers and die cut it out. For the background I cut a piece of white card stock and then die cut the frame using a die from the set Square Frames (51-517) and attached it in place. I then adhered the vase in place and stamped the sentiment (it's from the same From The Garden set as the vase with the flower). Finally, before adhering the panel in its place, I adhered a piece of patterned paper from the paper pad Beau Jardins (80-011) onto my card base.

Here's a list of all the Penny Black products I used and these can all be found in the Penny Black online store:
* From The Garden (30-560)
* From The Garden Cut Out (51-522)
* Square Frames (51-517)
* Beau Jardins (80-011)



Penny Blackin uusi Timeless-kokoelma on täynnänsä ihania kukkaleimoja ja setti, jota käytin tämänpäiväiseen korttiin, on yksi (monista!) suosikeistani. Tämän nimi on From The Garden (30-560) ja siihen kuuluu stanssitkin, From The Garden Cut Out (51-522). Leimasin vaasin kukkineen X-Press It -paperille, väritin Copiceilla ja stanssasin irti. Kukan taustalle leikkasin palan valkoista kartonkia ja kehykset siihen tein Square Frames (51-517) -setin stanssilla. Tekstileima on samasta setistä kuin kukkakin. Taustalle laitoin vielä kuviopaperia Beau Jardins (80-011) -paperikosta. Nämä ja muutkin uudet Timeless-kokoelman tuotteet ovat saatavilla Penny Blackin nettikaupasta, linkit listana yllä.

Penny Black Timeless 2019 - Daisies


(Teksti suomeksi kuvan alla)

I'm sharing a floral card I made with stamps and dies from the new release by Penny Black called Timeless. This is another stamp that is a joy to colour, it's called Daisies (40-665). I watercoloured it with my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolours and added blue shading with Ranger Distress Stain in Tumbled Glass. I die cut the frame out of white cardstock using a die from the new set called Square Frames (51-517) and making it smaller than the panel with the daisies. After attaching the frame, I stamped my sentiment, it's from the Grateful Sentiments (30-547) set. I added a tiny bow with twine as my embellishment. The patterned paper behind the panel is from the paper pad Holiday Trimmings (80-013).

Here's a list of the Penny Black products I used, all available at the Penny Black online store.
* Daisies (40-665)
* Square Frames (51-517)
* Grateful Sentiments (30-547)

Tässä uusi kortti Penny Blackin Timeless-kokoelman tuotteilla. Tämä leimakuva on Daisies (40-665), väritin sen Kuretake Gansai Tambi -vesiväreillä ja lisäsin sinistä ympärille Distress Stainilla (väri Tumbled Glass). Stanssasin kehyksen valkoisesta kartongista Square Frames (51-517) -setin stanssilla niin, että se on pienempi kuin paneeli, johon leimasin. Tekstileima on Grateful Sentiments (30-547) -setistä. Koristeeksi laitoin nyöriä rusetille ja taustalle kuviopaperia Holiday Trimming (80-013) -paperikosta. Yllä on lista käyttämistäni tuotteista ja linkit Penny Blackin nettikauppaan, josta ne ovat saatavilla.

I'm sharing yet another floral card created with the new stamps and dies from the fabulous Timeless release by Penny Black. This time I chose to use the stamp Unfolding (40-670), I love how delicate the flowers look!

I then created a frame for the image by using the Swirly Stitches die (51-502) and after adhering it to place, I stamped the sentiment from the set Grateful Sentiments (30-547). For the background, I used patterned paper from the paper pad Gentle Whisper (80-008). After adhering the panel, I added a finishing touch with tiny clear sequins.

Tässä uusi kukkakortti, jonka tein Penny Blackin Timeless-kokoelman leimoilla ja stansseilla. Leimakuvaksi valikoitui Unfolding (40-670), nämä kukkaset ovat niin ihanan hentoisia ja herkkiä. Väritin leimakuvan Kuretake Gansai Tambi -vesiväreillä ja tein sille kehyksen Swirly Stitches (51-502) -setin stanssilla. Kun olin kiinnittänyt kehyksen paikoilleen, leimasin tekstileiman, joka on  Grateful Sentiments (30-547) -setistä. Taustalle laitoin hieman kuviopaperia Gentle Whisper (80-008) -paperikosta ja kiinnitin paneelin paikoilleen. Lopuksi koristelin kortin muutamalla pienellä kirkkaalla paljetilla.

(Teksti suomeksi kuvien alla)

There's a fabulous new release called Timeless at Penny Black that is full of cute critters and beautiful florals and I'm sharing a floral card using one of the new stamps called Soft Spoken (40-688). I stamped the flower with black Memento ink on a panel of Neenah solar white cardstock, coloured it with my Copic markers and added accents with white gel pen. I then stamped the sentiment from an older set called Just Believe (30-470) on the panel with the black Memento ink and added a strip of patterned paper from the paper pad Wintertime (80-012) before adhering the panel onto a top-folding card base.

The stamp Soft Spoken is now available at Penny Black online store as are all the other products from the new Timeless release. Here's a list of the Penny Black products I used on my card:

The Flower Challenge #29: Muistutus - Reminder



The Flower Challengen helmikuun haaste on puolessa välissä, mutta aikaa osallistua on vielä runsaasti! Tällä kertaa toivomme kukkakortteja uusimmilla leimoillasi tai stansseillasi. Sain tammikuussa lahjana Altenew'lta ihanan Billowing Blossoms -setin ja vaikka olen sillä jo pari korttia tätä ennen tehnyt, lasken sen edelleen suht uudeksi, joten tein sillä tämän kortin. Käyttämäni musteet ovat Hero Artsin ja Simon Says Stampin ja Dekoretten tekstileiman embossasin valkoisella tuohon banneriin. Sitten vain kiinnitys vaaleanharmaalle korttipohjalle.

The Flower Challenge's challenge for February is in full swing but there's still plenty of time to participate! The theme for this challenge is 'Use Your Latest Stamps or Dies' and please remeber to use floral stamps. I received this lovely stamp set called 'Billowing Blossoms' as a free gift from Altenew in January and I have made a couple of cards with it earlier but it is still one of my latest stamps so I used it for my reminder card. I used inks by Hero Arts and Simon Says Stamp, and heat embossed my sentiment in white (the sentiment says 'On Your Special Day').


Kipin kapin The Flower Challenge -blogiin kurkkaamaan osallistumisohjeet ja kukkakorttia tekemään! Aikaa on 25.2. asti.

Please check the instructions for participating on The Flower Challenge blog and do join us. You'll have until February 25th to do so.

Ystävänpäivä - Valentine's Day

Tein elämäni pienille miehille ystävänpäiväkortit Purple Onion Designsin leimoilla. Ensimmäiseen käytin Icicle-nallukkaa ja toiseen Lilly-pöllöä, molemmat väritin Zigeillä. Taustalle värikkäitä kuviopapereita ja koristeiksi Lawn Fawnin stanssilla stanssattuja sydämiä.

I made my sons these bright and cheery Valentine's cards. The stamped images are by Purple Onion Designs, the first one is 'Icicle' and the second one is 'Lilly'. I coloured them both with my Zig Markers and fussy cut them out. I used some colourful patterned papers for the background and some die cut hearts (Lawn Fawn) as my embellishments.




Kiitos, kun käväisit. Hyvää ystävänpäivää! :)

Thanks for your visit today. Happy Valentine's Day! :)

Kukkaoksa - Floral branch

Synttärikorttivaraston täydennystä, tällä kertaa Clearly Besottedin Beautiful Friend -leimalla. Väritin kukkaoksan Copiceilla ja stanssasin irti. Taustalle laitoin kuviopaperia ja MFT:n stanssilla stanssatun paneelin, johon leimasin Vilda Stampsin leimalla tekstin. Koristeita en laittanut tällä kertaa, vaan ajattelin antaa kukkaoksan olla keskipisteenä.

I made this birthday card with 'Beautiful Friend' stamp by Clearly Besotted. I coloured it with my Copic Markers and die cut it out. In the background, I placed a piece of patterned paper and a panel die cut with an MFT die. I stamped my sentiment straight onto the panel. I also decided to let the beautiful stamped image take the center stage and did not add any embellishments.

Haasteet/Challenges:
* Stamping Sensations: February - All things bright and beautiful (my 3rd and final entry)
* Modsquad Challenge: Spring Flowers


Kiitos, kun käväisit! :)

Haaste/Challenge:
* Penny Black and More: February - Anything Goes


Kiitos, kun käväisit! :)

Thanks for your visit today! :)

Ystävä - Friend

Tein ystävänpäiväkortin Paper Smoochesin tuotteilla. Leimatut osat ovat Natural Beauties -setistä ja väritin ne Copiceilla. Taustalle laitoin kehyksen, jonka stanssasin Fused Frame -stanssilla. Lisäksi laitoin taustalle vähän kuviopaperia.

I made this friendship card with some Paper Smooches products. The stamped images and the sentiment are from the 'Natural Beauties' set, I coloured the images with my Copic markers. I also added a frame that I die cut with 'Fused Frame' die, and placed some patterned paper behind it. Sweet and simple! :)

Höyhenet - Feathers

Tämä kortti syntyi parin eri haasteen innoittamana: CAS(E) This Sketchista tuli luonnos ja Less Is Moresta tuli värit. Höyhenet on leimattu Create a Smilen Funky Feathers -setin leimoilla, väritin ne Copiceilla. Taustalle mustetin kevyesti suorakulmion Distress Oxide -musteella. Tekstileima on Papertrey Inkin. Koristeiksi laitoin muutaman pienen timantin.

I made this card for a couple of challenges: took the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch and the colours from Less Is More. The feathers I used are from the 'Funky Feathers' set by Create a Smile, I coloured them with my Copics. For the background I did a bit of masking and brushed some Distress Oxide ink to create a soft rectangle. The sentiment is by Papertrey Ink and as embellishments I used a few clear rhinestones.

Haasteet/Challenges:
* CAS(E) This Sketch! #308
* Less Is More: Challenge #388 - Navy and Yellow (happy 8th birthday, LIM!)

The Flower Challenge #29




The Flower Challengessä pyörähtää käyntiin uusi haaste ja tällä kertaa toivomme kukkakorttia, jonka olet tehnyt uusimmalla leimallasi tai stanssillasi. Yksi uusimpia leimojani on Hero Artsin Nasturtium, jota päätin käyttää tähän korttiin. Väritin leimakuvan Polychromos-kynillä, taustaan leimasin MFT:n Typewriter Text Background -leimalla ja Versamark-musteella ja kehykset stanssasin Penny Blackin Stitched Stackers -setin stanssilla.

A new challenge starts at The Flower Challenge and this time we're hoping for cards made with your latest floral stamps or dies. One of my latest stamps is 'Nasturtium' by Hero Arts and I used it for my DT card. I coloured the image with my Polychromos pencils. For the background, I stamped 'Typewriter Text Background' stamp by My Favorite Things with Versamark ink and die cut the frame with 'Stitched Stackers' die  by Penny Black.



Tarkemmat ohjeet osallistumiseen löytyy The Flower Challenge -blogista ja aikaa osallistua on 25.2. asti, joten mukaan vain!

You'll find all the information needed on The Flower Challenge blog and you'll have until February 25th to take part, so please do join us!

Kukkaset purkeissaan - Potted flowers

Lunta sataa ulkona valkoisenaan  mutta ainakin kortissa on kevään tuntua :) Nämä kukkaset ovat Penny Blackin Potted Flowers -leimasin, jonka leimasin suoraan vesivärikartongista taittelemaani korttipohjaan. Väritin leimakuvan Gansai Tambi -vesiväreillä ja mustetin reunoja Distress Oxide -musteella. Tekstileima on Penny Blackin Snippets-setistä ja sen embossasin valkoisella mustalle kartonkipalaselle. Lopuksi vain hieman nyöriä rusetille.

It's snowing outside but at least I have spring on my card :) The stamp I used is Penny Black's 'Potted Flowers' which I stamped straight onto card base that I folded out of watercolour cardstock. I coloured the image with my Gansai Tambi watercolours and sponged some Distress Oxide ink onto the edges. The sentiment I used is from 'Snippets' set by Penny Black, I heat embossed it in white onto a strip of black cardstock. Lastly, I added some twine to finish the card.

Haasteet/Challenges:
* Penny Black Saturday Challenge: February - Anything Goes with optional twist of 'Flowers'
* Penny Black and More: February - Anything Goes
* Stamping Sensations: February - All Things Bright and Beautiful
* Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes

Kosmoskukka - Cosmos flower

Tähän onnittelukorttiin käytin kukkaa Honey Bee Stampsin Cosmos-setistä ja väritin sen Copiceilla. Taustalle laitoin hieman kermanväristä kartonkia ja kuviopaperia, jonka reunan stanssasin Penny Blackin Curved Stitch -stanssilla. Lisäksi Dekoretten tekstileima.

For this birthday card I used a flower from Honey Bee Stamps set 'Cosmos'. I coloured it with my Copics. For the background I used some cream coloured cardstock and a piece of patterned paper that I die cut with 'Curved Stitch' die by Penny Black. I stamped my sentiment in black ink.

Purkillinen sydämiä - Mason jar of hearts

Jokusen haasteen innoittamana syntyi tämä kortti. Leimakuva on Stamping Bellan Mason Jar of Hearts, jonka väritin Altenew'n vesiväreillä ja leikkasin irti. Taustalle Lili of the Valleyn kuviopaperia ja MFT:n stanssilla stanssattu boordi. Lisäksi paljetteja.

I was inspired by a few challenges and made this Valentine's card. The stamped image is 'Mason Jar of Hearts' by Stamping Bella. I coloured it with my Altenew watercolours and fussy cut it out. For the background I used some patterned papers by Lili of the Valley die cut with MFT's stitched edge die and a border (die cut with an MFT die as well). Added some sequins to finish the card.
