Penny Black Full Bloom: You Make the World a Better Place



I love circle cards but don't make them that often for some reason. Now I decided that this cute little mousie deserves her own little circle card! :) So I die cut a circle card base out of card stock, die cut the circle frame with Penny Black's Stitched Square & Circles die and placed a bit of patterned paper from Beau Jardins paper pad underneath the frame. Using the new Just a Note die set, I then die cut the little note pad page out of cream card stock, die cut the ripped edge and also the cute little paper clip (just how cute is that paper clip!). I stamped the sentiment from the new Family Sentiment set onto the note pad page. The mousie is from the new set It's Your Day, I stamped her onto some watercolour paper, coloured with my Zig markers and die cut her out. I then attached everything in place (the mouse is attached with foam adhesives) and added some sequins to embellish the card.

I'd like to enter my card to the following challenges:
* Penny Black Saturday Challenge: May - Anything Goes
* Penny Black and More: May - All Things Feminine with Anything Goes option (my 3rd entry)
* Addicted to Stamps and More: Challenge #341 - Anything Goes
* Double D Challenges: Frames



Penny Black products used:
* It's Your Day (30-553)
* It's Your Day Cut Out (51-537)
* Just a Note (51-531)
* Family Sentiment (30-555)
* Stitched Square & Circles (51-422)
* Beau Jardins (80-011)


Tein pitkästä aikaa pyöreän kortin. Stanssasin pyöreän korttipohjan, kiinnitin siihen kuviopaperia ja stanssasin kehyksen Penny Blackin Stitched Square & Circles -setin stanssilla. Just a Note -stanssisetillä stanssasin vihkon sivun, siihen revityn reunan ja klemmarin. Leimasin sivuun tekstileimalla Family Sentiment -setistä. Hiirulaisen leimasin It's Your Day -setistä, väritin Zigeillä ja stanssasin irti. Lopuksi vain kiinnitys paikoilleen ja jokunen paljetti koristeeksi.

CAS(E) This Sketch! #322 - Guest Designer

I have the absolute honour of being the Guest Designer over at CAS(E) This Sketch! challenge this week - thanks for having me, ladies! It's CAS(E) This Sketch! #322 and you can see the sketch below. For my card, I used the stamp Bed of Roses by Winnie & Walter, I coloured it with my Copic markers. The sentiment is from the set Snippets by Penny Black and I heat embossed it in white on a strip of black cardstock. I then adhered it to the panel and the panel onto my card base.


Here's the sketch this week.


Thanks again for having me as a Guest Designer, ladies, I had so much fun with the sketch!



Tällä viikolla minulla on kunnia olla Guest Designerina CAS(E) This Sketch! -haasteessa. Menossa on CTS #322, jonka luonnos on tuossa yllä. Käytin korttiini Winnie & Walterin Bed of Roses -leimaa, jonka väritin Copiceilla.

The Flower Challenge #32: Reminder - Muistutus




We are midway through our challenge for the month of May over at The Flower Challenge and I'm here to remind you that you still have time to join in, please do! We are sponsored by the lovely Altenew who have kindly promised a stamp set for our winner - now that's worth playing for, right!? The challenge is to use embossing (either heat or dry) on your floral card.

For my card I chose to use the set Bamboo Rose by Altenew. I heat embossed the flowers with white embossing powder before colouring them with my Altenew watercolours. I also heat embossed my sentiment (it says 'Congrats' in Finnish) on a strip of light grey cardstock. I die cut the panel with a Penny Black die from the set Stitched Stackers and adhered it onto my card base before adhering the sentiment strip and the flowers onto it. I embellished my card with clear sequins.




So now it's your turn! Hop over to The Flower Challenge blog, be inspired by my very talented team mates, check out the prize from Altenew ;) and get creating! We're looking forward to seeing your floral creations :) The deadline for the challenge is May 25th.


The Flower Challengen toukokuun haaste alkaa olla puolivälissä, mutta vielä on reippaasti aikaa osallistua. Palkintona voittajalle on Altenew'n leimasetti, joten kukkakortin tekeminen kannattaa nyt jos koskaan ;) Haasteen aiheena on kohokuviointi/embossaus. Omaan korttiini käytin Altenew'n Bamboo Rose -settiä. Embossasin kukat valkoisella jauheella ja väritin ne Altenew'n vesiväreillä. Tekstileimankin embossasin harmaalle kartonkisuikaleelle. Paneelin stanssasin Penny Blackin Stitched Stackers -setin stanssilla ja kiinnitin korttipohjaan, minkä jälkeen kiinnitin tekstisuikaleen ja kukat paikoilleen. Koristeina käytin paljetteja. 

Nyt vain kukkakorttia tekemään! Inspiraatiota löytyy The Flower Challenge -blogista, sieltä löydät myös kuvan palkintoleimasetistä ;) Aikaa osallistua on 25.5. asti.

Penny Black: Hanging Planters - Amppeli



I'm on the SIMPLICITY At Its Best blog by Penny Black today with a card that has very little stamping on it and no colouring at all! Something a little different from me.. :) To see the card in full, please visit SIMPLICITY At Its Best.




Olen tänään Penny Blackin SIMPLICITY At Its Best -blogissa kera kortin, jossa on hyvin vähän leimailua eikä ollenkaan värittämistä! Hieman erilaista siis tällä kertaa.. :) Jos haluat nähdä kortin kokonaisuudessaan, klikkaa itsesi SIMPLICITY At Its Bestiin.

Penny Black: Happy Birthday! - Hyvää syntymäpäivää!



I love a good floral stamp and this one definitely fits the bill! All those gorgeous blooms are just lovely to colour. The stamp is Rose Garden by Penny Black, I stamped it onto Ranger watercolour cardstock and coloured with my Gansai Tambi watercolours. I cut the card base a bit narrower than the stamped image is and then just fussy cut the flowers that "grow" outside the card base. The sentiment is also by Penny Black, from the set Special Sentiments.

I'd like to enter this card to the following challenges:
* CAS(E) This Sketch!: #321 (I realise there should be more empty space above the sentiment according to the sketch but I could not leave any more as it wouldn't fit an envelope if I did! Hope it still qualifies)
* Stamping Sensations: May - In an English Country Garden
* Penny Black and More: May - All Things Feminine
* Penny Black Saturday Challenge: May - Anything Goes
* Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: For a Special Lady



Tämä kukkaleima oli ihana värittää - kukkia ainakin riitti! Tämä on Penny Blackin Rose Garden, leimasin sen vesivärikartongille ja väritin Gansai Tambi -vesiväreillä. Korttipohjan leikkasin hieman kapeammaksi kuin leimakuva ja ulkopuolelle jäävät kukat leikkasin saksilla. Tekstileima on Penny Blackin Special Sentiments -setistä.

Penny Black Full Bloom: It's Your Day


These cute little critters are from the new stamp set by Penny Black called It's Your Day from the new Full Bloom release, and they come with matching dies (It's Your Day Cut Out)! I am not much of a fussy cutter so matching dies are always good news to me.. ;) I stamped these critters on Fabriano Mixed Media paper and coloured them with my Zig markers before die cutting them. I then die cut the panel with Stitched Nested Frames and masked a rectangle on it before sponging some Distress Oxide ink in Bundled Sage on it. I heat embossed the sentiment from the set Snippets with white embossing powder onto a strip of black cardstock and assembled the card.

I'd like to enter this card to the following challenges:
* AAA Birthday: Game #1 - Anything Goes (my 2nd entry)
* Penny Black Saturday Challenge: May - Anything Goes, Optional 'Make Your Own Background'
* TIME OUT Challenges: Challenge #135 - Inspired by Words 'Keep Your Eyes on the Stars and Your Feet on the Ground' (the critters have their feet own the "ground" :) )



Penny Black products used:
* It's Your Day (30-553)
* It's Your Day Cut Out (51-537)
* Stitched Nested Frames (51-535)
* Snippets (30-283)


Nämä ihanat hiirulaiset ovat Penny Blackin uudesta leimasetistä It's Your Day, joihin on myös omat stanssinsa, It's Your Day Cut Out. Leimasin hiiret Fabrianon Mixed Media -paperille, väritin Zigeillä ja stanssasin. Taustan paneelin stanssasin Stitched Nested Frames -setin stanssilla, maskasin suorakulmion ja mustetin sen Distress Oxide -musteella Bundled Sage. Tekstileiman (Snippets-setistä) embossasin valkoisella mustalle kartonkipalaselle ja kiinnitin kaiken paikalleen.

Christmas greetings - Joulutervehdys

It's only May and I've made my first Christmas card for this year! That happened mainly because I recently received my new Winnie & Walter stamps, Happy Owlidays, and had to make a card with this cute little bird. I made this by folding a card base out of Copic friendly cardstock and stamping the bird on it. I coloured him with my Copic markers and added little details with white gel pen. Then I masked a square shape behind him and sponged some Distress Oxide ink to it. Lastly, I stamped my sentiment (it says 'Christmas greetings' in Finnish).

I'd like to enter my card to:
* AAA Cards: CAS Game #139 - Sketch






Tein ensimmäisen joulukorttini tälle vuodelle! Sain hiljattain uudet Winnie & Walter -leimani, Happy Owlidays, ja pakkohan tällä suloisella linnulla oli tehdä kortti :) Taittelin korttipohjan Copiceille tarkoitetusta kartongista, leimasin linnun ja väritin Copiceilla. Taustalle maskasin ja mustetin neliön. Lopuksi leimasin tekstileiman.

Congratulating you - Sinua onnitellen

I had so much fun colouring my new stamp, Curvy Girl with a Heart Wreath by Stamping Bella. I just love the wreath she is carrying! I stamped her onto a panel of X-Press It blending card with Gina K ink and coloured her with my Copics. I die cut the panel using a Penny Black die from the set Stitched Nested Frames and matted it onto dark red cardstock and then onto light blue cardbase. I stamped my sentiment ('Congratulating you' in Finnish) with the same Gina K ink that I used stamping the image. I wanted the image to stand out so I did not add any embellishments to my card.

I'd like to enter my card to the following challenges:
* AAA Birthday: Game #1 - Anything Birthday Goes
* Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Happy Birthday!
* Fusion Card Challenge: Butterfly Wreath (I'm using just the photo of the wreath as my inspiration)






Tein kortin uudella leimallani, tämä on Stamping Bellan Curvy Girl with a Heart Wreath. Leimasin sen Penny Blackin stanssilla (Stitched Nested Frames) stanssattuun paneeliin ja väritin sen Copiceilla. Kerrostin paneelin kartongille ja korttipohjaan ja leimasin tekstileiman. Koristeita en laittanut, koska halusin leimakuvan saavan kaiken huomion.

Penny Black Full Bloom: Mother's Day Card with Flower Fantasy



It's Mother's Day next Sunday so I made a Mother's Day card - a floral one, of course! :) I heat embossed in gold a bouquet stamp from the new Penny Black stamp set called Flower Fantasy, I actually stamped and heat embossed it three times to create a bit of fullness to the card. I also heat embossed the sentiment, it's from the Family Sentiment set. I did a bit of messy watercolouring to colour the flowers and added a frame die cut with the Swirly Stitches dies. I then adhered the panel to my card base and added a few gold sequins to finish the card.



Here's the card at an angle so you can see the gold embossing better.


I'd like to enter my card to the following challenges:
* ModSquad Challenge: Happy Mother's Day
* Penny Black and More: May - All Things Feminine
* Stamping Sensations: May - In an English Country Garden (when I think of English gardens, what comes to mind is fullness, lots of different flowers blooming everywhere)

Penny Black products used:
* Flower Fantasy (30-565)
* Family Sentiment (30-555)
* Swirly Stitches (51-502)


Tein "kukkaisan" äitienpäiväkortin. Leimasin ja embossasin kimpun Penny Blackin Flower Fantasy -setistä kolmeen kertaan ja väritin sotkuisasti vesiväreillä. Tekstileima on Family Sentiment -setistä ja sen embossasin myös. Kehykset tein Swirly Stitches -setin stansseilla. Lopulta kiinnitys korttipohjaan ja muutama paljetti koristeeksi.

The Flower Challenge #32



It's time for the May challenge over at The Flower Challenge and this time we're asking you to emboss! Heat embossing, dry embossing - it's up to you, just please remember to use a floral image on your card. And this time we have a prize for the winner! Altenew has kindly agreed to give our winner a stamp set, hop over to The Flower Challenge blog to see it.

So for my card I used Wallpaper Art set by Altenew. I heat embossed the flower and the leaves in gold, coloured them with Altenew watercolours and die cut them with the matching dies. For the white-on-white background I die cut a rectangle, adhered it to card base, and die cut a thin frame with Altenew's Fine Frames Rectangles die and adhered it to the panel. I stamped my sentiment ('Congrats' in Finnish) with Delicata gold ink and adhered my leaves and flower (the flower is adhered with foam adhesives for a bit of extra interest).



Here's a photo of the card at an angle so you can see that the embossing is actually gold (it's very tricky to photograph golden embossing...).


Now please visit The Flower Challenge blog for instructions on how to participate (you'll have until 25th of the month to participate) and to see the floral gorgeousness that my team mates have created for your inspiration!


Toukokuun haaste The Flower Challengessä on embossaus eli kohokuviointi jauheilla, kohokuviointitaskuilla tai millä vain. Muistathan vain käyttää kukkaleimaa tai -stanssia kortissasi! Ja voittajalle on luvassa Altenew'n lahjoittama palkinto, lisätietoja siitä The Flower Challenge -blogissa.

Omaan korttiini käytin Altenew'n Wallpaper Art -settiä. Embossasin sen kultaisella jauheella, väritin Altenew'n vesiväreillä ja stanssasin irti. Valkoiseen korttipohjaan kiinnitin valkoisen paneelin, johon puolestaan kiinnitin valkoisen kehyksen, jonka stanssasin Altenew'n Fine Frames Rectangles -stanssilla. Tekstileiman leimasin Delicatan kultaisella musteella. Lopulta kiinnitin kukan ja lehdet paikoilleen (kukan kiinnitin kohotarroilla).

Aikaa haasteeseen osallistumiseen on 25.5. asti, lisäneuvot osallistumiseen The Flower Challenge -blogista. Kannattaa käydä kurkkaamassa haaste, palkinto ja DT-porukan kortit blogista - ja osallistua, tietenkin!

Penny Black Full Bloom: Flower Fantasy


I created this one-layer card with a few challenges in mind. To make this, I folded a top-folding card base out of watercolour paper and stamped two different floral stamps from the new set by Penny Black called Flower Fantasy from their most recent release, Full Bloom. I coloured the flowers with my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolours. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Special Sentiments set.

Penny Black Full Bloom: Bunches For You



This stamp is also a firm favourite of mine from the new Penny Black release, Full Bloom. The stamp is called Bunches For You. I stamped it onto watercolour paper with grey Versafine ink and coloured with Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolours. I die cut the panel with a die from the Stitched Square & Circles set and after that, I stamped my sentiment onto the panel, it's from the Special Sentiments set. I also decided to add a few splatters of black tube watercolour onto my panel as I thought they would go well together with the dots in the stamped image. I cut a piece of patterned paper from the Painted Blooms paper pad, adhered it to my card base and adhered the panel onto it.

I'd like to enter my card to the following challenges:
* Allsorts Challenge Blog: Week 517 - Mother's Day/Feminine
* Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes

Penny Black Full Bloom: Be Happy


I'm sharing a couple of cards I made with new stamps and dies from the new Penny Black release called Full Bloom. These animals are just the best, cute and quirky at the same time! They are from the set Be Happy (30-583). For the first card, I stamped the elephant onto Copic-friendly cardstock, coloured him with my Copics and die cut the panel with a die from the new set called Stitched Nested Frames (51-535). I then stamped the sentiment from the set Family Sentiment (30-555) and adhered the panel to my cardbase. Lastly, I added some enamel dots to embellish my card.


For the second card, I used the giraffe from the same set. I stamped him onto a piece of Copic-friendly cardstock and coloured him with my Copics. I then die cut the frame using the Stitched Nested Frames and added foliage using an older Penny Black die called Fresh Breeze (51-046). Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the set It's Your Day (30-553).


 I'd like to enter these to the following challenges (one card via my blog and the other via my Instagram account):
* CASology: Week 340 - Africa (when I think of Africa I think of the animals there and elephant is my favourite :) )
* Penny Black Saturday Challenge: April - Anything Goes
* Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes
* TIME OUT Challenges: Challenge #134 - Playful


Penny Black products used:
* Be Happy (30-583)
* Stitched Nested Frames (51-535)
* Family Sentiment (30-555)
* It's Your Day (30-553)
* Fresh Breeze (51-046)


Tein pari  korttia uusilla leimoilla ja stansseilla Penny Blackin uusimmasta Full Bloom -kokoelmasta. Nämä eläimet ovat suosikkejani, ihania ja hassuja samaan aikaan. Molemmat ovat Be Happy -setistä ja Copiceilla väritetyt. Ensimmäisen kortin paneelin ja toisen kortin kehyksen stanssasin uusilla Stitched Nested Frames -stansseilla. Tekstileima ensimmäisessä on setistä Family Sentiment ja toisessa setistä It's Your Day. Toiseen korttiin käytin lisäksi vanhempaa Penny Black -stanssia nimeltään Fresh Breeze.

9

I made these birthday cards for my eldest son who will soon turn 9. I have to say I don't know by whom these stamps are... I've had the first one for ages and I've forgotten the manufacturer and the second one I bought secondhand so I do not know the manufacturer. But anyway, I coloured both the images with my Copic markers and die cut the panels with MFT dies. For the first card, I die cut the rays behind the boy with a Create a Smile die and the letters and number with Memory Box dies. I placed a piece of patterned paper on the card base and adhered the panel to it. The boy I adhered with foam adhesives. For the second card, I masked the dragon and created the clouds with a mask and some Distress Oxide ink. I die cut the little banner with a Create a Smile die and stamped the sentiment on it (it says 'Congrats!'). I matted the panel onto some light blue cardstock and placed a piece of patterned paper behind it.

Challenges (one card entered via my blog and the other via my Instagram):
* The Male Room Challenge: #109 - Anything Goes
* Seize the Birthday: #163 - Anything Goes





Nämä synttärikortit tein vanhimmalle pojalleni, joka täyttää piakkoin 9 vuotta. Leimasinten valmistajia en tiedä, mutta leimakuvat väritin Copiceilla ja paneelit stanssasin MFT:n stansseilla. Ensimmäisen kortin taustalle stanssasin säteet Create a Smilen stanssilla ja kirjaimet ja numerot Memory Boxin stanssilla. Taustalle hieman kuviopaperia. Toiseen korttiin maskasin lohikäärmeen ja mustetin pilvet maskin ja Distress Oxiden kanssa. Bannerin stanssasin Create a Smilen stanssilla ja leimasin siihen tekstin.

To the graduate - Valmistuneelle

I made this card for a relative who finished his medical school and graduated as a doctor. I thought the occasion called for roses but tried to make the card a bit more masculine with the colour blue. The stamp I used is called Bed of Roses and it is by Winnie and Walter. I coloured the image with my Copic markers, matted it onto black card stock and then adhered it to card base. I heat embossed the sentiment (it says 'To the graduate') on a strip of black cardstock.

Challenges:
* Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Spring Mood Board
* Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Beautiful Blooms
* Addicted to Stamps and More: Challenge #337 - Make Your Mark
* Allsorts Challenge Blog: Week 515/516 - Blossoms, Butterflies, Bugs



Tämän kortin tein lääkäriksi valmistuneelle sukulaispojalle. Ajattelin tilaisuuden vaativan ruusuja mutta koitin tehdä kortista vähän miehisemmän sinisellä värillä. Leimakuva on Winnie and Walterin Bed of Roses, jonka väritin Copiceilla, kerrostin mustalle kartongille ja kiinnitin korttipohjaan. Tekstileiman embossasin mustalle kartonkisuikaleelle.

Penny Black: Special Friends


I simply love these bunnies from the Special Friends set by Penny Black! They're cute and whimsical at the same time which is just the perfect combination. For the first card, I stamped the bunny on Copic friendly cardstock, coloured it with my Copics and die cut it with the matching die. The banner (coloured with Copics as well), the sentiment, the leaves and the flowers are all from the same Special Friends set. The panel in the background is die cut with the Diamond Cut die out of white cardstock and I adhered a piece of vellum behind it. The patterned paper is from the paper pad Summertime.



For the second card, I stamped and die cut the bunny and then coloured it with my Copics. I did the same with the flower and I also added tiny accents with white gel pen to both the bunny and the flower. I sponged some Distress Oxide ink in Worn Lipstick on the background and die cut the Burlap Edge die out of light brown cardstock and adhered it to my cardbase. The sentiment is from the Happy Snippets set. I also rounded the upper corners of the card with a Corner Chomper.



I'd like to enter both of these cards to the following challenges (the second card submitted via Flickr):
* Penny Black Saturday Challenge: April - Anything Goes, optional Fresh Spring Colours
* Penny Black and More: April - Spring
* Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Spring Mood Board


Penny Black products used:
* Special Friends stamps (30-561) and matching dies (51-526)
* Diamond Cut die (51-499)
* Summertime paper pad (80-016)
* Burlap Edge die (51-504)
* Happy Snippets stamp set (30-358)


Nämä Penny Blackin puput Special Friends -setistä ovat mielestäni niin ihania, suloisia mutta ei liian sokerisia. Teinkin niillä kaksi korttia, molemmissa puput on väritetty Copiceilla ja stanssattu irti. Ensimmäisen kortin banneri, tekstileima, lehdet ja kukat ovat  samasta Special Friends -setistä ja taustan ristikko on stanssattu Diamond Cut -stanssilla. Sen taustalle laitoin hieman vellumia ja kuviopaperia Summertime -setistä. Toisen kortin "maa" on stanssattu Burlap Edge -stanssilla, taustalla on hieman Distress Oxide -mustetta ja tekstileima on Happy Snippets -setistä.

The Flower Challenge #31: Reminder - Muistutus



It's time for The Flower Challenge reminder. This month we have a sketch for you to follow, and I interpreted the sketch loosely but used all the elements. The flowers are die cut with a Penny Black die called 'Playful Posies', I modified the die cut image a bit by cutting out one flower as there were four but the sketch only has three. I die cut the notebook pages with a Paper Smooches die called 'Notebook Basic' and stamped the sentiment from the set 'Snippets' by Penny Black. On the cream coloured cardbase I adhered a piece of patterned paper from my stash. As my embellishments I used a few clear sequins.

Please visit The Flower Challenge blog for details on how to participate and for loads of inspiration from my lovely team mates. And please do take part in the challenge, you'll have until April 25th to do so.




Muistuttelen taas The Flower Challengen huhtikuun haasteesta, jossa meillä on haasteena luonnos. Itse seurasin luonnosta vähän kevyemmin, mutta käytin kaikkia elementtejä. Kukat stanssasin Penny Blackin Playful Posies -stanssilla, tosin muokkasin leikettä hieman leikkaamalla siitä pois yhden kukan. Taustan vihkon lehdet stanssasin Paper Smoochesin Notebook Basic -stanssilla ja leimasin niihin tekstin Penny Blackin leimalla setistä Snippets. Lisäksi hieman kuviopaperia ja muutama kirkas paljetti. 

The Flower Challenge -blogista löytyy ohjeet osallistumiseen, kannattaa myös kurkata tiimiläisten kortit :) Aikaa osallistua haasteeseen on 25.4. asti.

Less Is More #393: Guest Designer


I have the absolute honour of being a Guest Designer for the current Less Is More challenge - thank you so much, ladies, for having me! It's a colour challenge this time with the cue words being 'Subtle Colours'. I decided to make a spring time thank you card with subtle spring colours and this is what I created. I used the 'Beautiful Friend' stamp and die by Clearly Besotted Stamps and did my colouring with my Copic Markers. I also added a bit of white gel pen to the image and attached the image with foam adhesives. For the background I simply die cut a circle using circle dies. The sentiment says 'Thank You' in Finnish. I also rounded the upper corners of my card with a Corner Chomper.





Minulla on kunnia olla Guest Designerina Less Is More -haasteessa ja tällä kertaa kyseessä on värihaaste teemalla 'Subtle Colours'. Käytin korttiini Clearly Besottedin Beautiful Friend -leimaa ja -stanssia. Leimakuvan väritin Copiceilla, lisäilin hieman valkoista geelikynää ja kiinnitin sen tarrapaloilla. Taustalle stanssasin ympyrän. Kortin kulmia pyöristin Corner Chomperilla.

Flowers with lots of love - Kukkia rakkaudella

I love colouring this stamp ('Floral Medley' by Penny Black). I've made a similar card with it earlier but this time I wanted to use a different, stronger colour scheme. I used my Zig Markers for colouring and die cut the panel with 'Stitched Stackers' die by Penny Black. I then adhered the panel to hot pink cardbase and stamped the sentiment, it's from the set 'Happy Snippets' by Penny Black.

Challenges:
* Penny Black Saturday Challenge: April - Anything Goes
* Penny Black and More: April - Springtime
* Stamping Sensations: April - April Showers Bring May Flowers
* Addicted to Stamps and More: Challenge #336 - Anything Goes
* Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: No Designer Paper




Tykkään tästä Penny Blackin Floral Medley -leimasta, se on ihana väritettävä. Olen tehnyt tällä samalla leimalla aiemminkin samanlaisen kortin, mutta ajattelin nyt koittaa voimakkaampaa värimaailmaa. Väritin kuvan Zigeillä ja stanssasin paneelin Penny Blackin Stitched Stackers -stanssilla. Tekstileima on Happy Snippets -setistä (Penny Blackin sekin). Paneelin kiinnitin lopulta pinkkiin korttipohjaan.

The Flower Challenge #31



It's April (yay for spring!) and time for a new challenge over at The Flower Challenge and this time we have a fun sketch for you. Use the sketch above and please remember to use floral stamps/dies. For my card I used the Our Friendship Grows set by Lawn Fawn - and yes, I made the sunflowers pink! I did my colouring with Copic Markers and added the frames in the background, they're die cut with the Altenew die Fine Frames. The sentiment says 'Congrats'.

Please check The Flower Challenge blog for all the details on how to participate and while you're there, soak in all the inspiration from my amazing team mates! You'll have until April 25th to participate.




Huhtikuu on alkanut ja on uuden haasteen aika. The Flower Challengessä haasteena on luonnos (kuva yllä). Sen mukaan ja kukkaleimoja/stansseja käyttäen ja ei kun osallistumaan! :) Omaan korttiini käytin Lawn Fawnin Our Friendship Grows -settiä ja kyllä, väritin auringonkukat pinkeiksi :D Väritys Copiceilla ja taustan kehykset Altenew'n Fine Frames -stanssilla.

Tarkemmat ohjeet osallistumiseen löytyy The Flower Challenge -blogista ja siellä on myös tuutin täydeltä inspiraatiota DT-porukalta. Aikaa osallistua on 25.4. asti.
