Lilac - Syreeni

I love this sweet little girl! I think she looks so lovely in her floral dress and headpiece :) She is Garden Girl Lilac by Stamping Bella and I coloured her earlier in the summer during the Daily Marker 30 day Colouring Challenge. To make a card with her, I die cut her with the matching die and then die cut the frame using Stitched Stackers dies by Penny Black. I stamped my sentiment ('Congratulations') onto a piece of vellum and adhered it behind the frame. For the background I used a piece of patterned paper and I embellished the card with a single heart die cut with a Lawn Fawn die.

I'd like to enter my card to the following challenges:
* TIME OUT Challenges: Challenge #142 - Fashionable (I think floral dresses are always fashionable :) )
* Uniko: Challenge #54 - Flowers




Tämä on Stamping Bellan Garden Girl Lilac ja mielestäni hän on hurmaava! :) Väritin tämän leimakuvan jo kesällä mutta vasta nyt tein sen kortiksi. Stanssasin leimakuvan irti ja kiinnitin kohotarroilla. Kehyksen stanssasin Penny Blackin Stitched Stackers -stansseilla, tekstileiman leimasin vellumvyötteelle. Taustalle laitoin kuviopaperia ja koristeeksi laitoin Lawn Fawnin stanssilla stanssatun sydämen.

Congratulations - Onnittelut

I had a play with my new Altenew stamps. I really like this floral stamp, it's from the Weekend Doodles set. I coloured the image with my Copic markers and die cut it. I folded my card base out of white linen textured cardstock, die cut a circle frame with an MFT die and adhered it to the cardbase. I added a strip of black cardstock where I heat embossed my sentiment (it says 'Congratulations') and adhered everything in place (I adhered the floral image with foam adhesives to give it a bit more interest). Lastly, I embellished my card with black enamel dots.

I'd like to enter my card to the following challenges:
* Addicted to Stamps and More: Challenge #354 - CAS
* Watercooler Wednesday: WWC234 - All About Occasions
* Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Midsummer Blues
* Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Midsummer Blues




Tein kortin uusilla Altenew'n leimoillani. Tämä on Weekend Doodles -setistä. Väritin sen Copiceilla ja stanssasin irti. Taustalle laitoin MFT:n stanssilla stanssatun kehyksen, tekstileiman embossasin kartongin palaselle ja kiinnitin kaiken paikoilleen. Lopuksi koristelin kortin mustilla enamel dotseilla.

Penny Black Dreaming: Two Bears and a Mouse



This card mixes and matches different stamp sets from Penny Black's current release as well as a previous one. I started by stamping and colouring the critters with Copic markers. The big bear is a stamp called A Big Hug, the sitting bear is from the set Tea Party and the mouse is from the set It's Your Day. I then die cut the mouse the big bear with their matching dies and fussy cut the sitting bear. For the background, I cut a panel out of blue card stock and die cut windows in it with dies from Stitched Circles set. I also added a bit of  patterned paper from Wintertime paper pad behind the windows before adhering everything in place. I stamped the sentiment from It's Your Day stamp set onto a strip of white cardstock and adhered it in place. The blue 'twigs' are die cut with Garden Edgers die, I used only a couple of snippets from the row of grass that the die creates. Lastly, I added some white enamel dots.

I'd like to enter my card to the following challenges:
* Penny Black and More: August - Boys and Men (my 3rd entry)
* Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Midsummer Blues
* Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Midsummer Blues
* Penny Black Saturday Challenge: August - Anything Goes

The Flower Challenge #35: Reminder - Muistutus



We're midway through our August challenge at The Flower Challenge and the theme for August is 'Use Your Favourite Flower'. We're sponsored by Clearly Besotted who will kindly give our winner a gift certificate of 20 GBP! Our Guest Designer is the very talented Therese Calvird.

I love peonies and chose to use Peonies in Bloom set by Mama Elephant. I watercoloured the peonies and die cut them out. I added some gold splatters with my watercolour brush and Sheer Shimmer Spritz to my card base before arranging the flowers and the leaves. Lastly, I stamped my sentiment ('Congratulating You').



Please visit The Flower Challenge blog for all the info on how to participate, the challenge ends August 25th. And while you're there, remember to check out the gorgeous cards created by my team mates and our Guest Designer.



Elokuun haaste The Flower Challengessä on käyttää lempikukkia. Voittajalle on luvassa palkinto, sillä sponsorimme Clearly Besotted antaa onnekkaalle 20 GBP:n lahjakortin. Guest Designerina meillä on Therese Calvird.

Yksi lempikukistani on pioni ja käytinkin korttiini Mama Elephantin Peonies in Bloom -settiä. Väritin kukat vesiväreillä ja stanssasin irti. Korttipohjaan roiskin vähän kultaa vesivärisiveltimellä ja Sheer Shimmer Spritzillä, minkä jälkeen laitoin kukat ja lehdet paikoilleen ja leimasin tekstileiman. 

The Flower Challenge -blogissa kannattaa käydä kurkkaamassa osallistumisohjeet (aikaa on 25.8. asti) ja tiimiläisten ja Guest Designerin kortit.

Penny Black Dreaming: A Present



I think this cute teddy with his huge present is perfect for a birthday card, so that's what I made :) The stamp I used is a new one from the new Penny Black release called A Present. I stamped it onto a watercolour paper panel and coloured with my watercolours. I then die cut the upper right corner with Curved Stitch die and placed a piece of patterned paper behind it, the patterned paper is from the pad Painted Blooms. I then stamped the sentiment which is from the new set called Beautiful Heart and adhered the panel onto my cardbase. Lastly, I embellished the card with some enamel dots.

I'd like to enter my card to the following challenges:
* Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Happy Birthday
* The Male Room Challenge: Challenge #117
* Penny Black and More: August - Boys and Men




All stamps and dies used are by Penny Black and available from their online store:
* A Present (30-573)
* Beautiful Heart (30-550)
* Curved Stitch (51-435)
* Painted Blooms (80-009)



Nallukka lahjansa kera sopii hyvin synttärikorttiin, joten sellainen tästä tuli :) Leimakuva on Penny Blackin uusi A Present, leimasin sen vesiväripaperille ja väritin vesiväreillä. Sitten stanssasin yläkulman paneelista Curved Stitch -stanssilla ja laitoin tilalle kuviopaperia Painted Blooms -paperikosta. Tekstileima on uudesta Beautiful Heart -setistä. Lopuksi muutama enamel dotsi koristeeksi. Penny Blackin tuotteet ovat saatavilla nettikaupastaan, linkit tuotteisiin yllä.

Penny Black Dreaming: Flower Collection



I have a floral card to share that I made with the new stamps and dies from the new collection by Penny Black called Dreaming. This stamp is from the set called Flower Collection, I stamped it onto watercolour paper and coloured with my Lukas Aquarell 1862 watercolours. I then used the largest die from the new die set,  Leaf Stitched Frames, and die cut the panel. After die cutting I left the die in place and softly sponged some Distress Oxide ink to the edges of the panel (the die left a white frame around the panel). Before adhering the panel to my card base, I stamped the sentiment which is from the new set called Beautiful Heart.

I'd like to enter my card to the following challenges:
* Watercooler Wednesday: WWC233 - Feminine Anything Goes
* Happy Little Stampers: August Watercolour Challenge - Anything Goes 
* Penny Black Saturday Challenge: August - Anything Goes, Optional: Water and/or Watercolour




Here's a close up of the beautiful floral image.


 

The stamps and dies used are by Penny Black and available in their online store:



Tämä vaasi kukkineen on Penny Blackin uudesta Flower Collection -setistä, leimasin sen vesiväripaperille ja väritin vesiväreillä. Paneelin stanssasin Leaf Stitched Frames -setin isoimmalla stanssilla ja jätin stanssin paikalleen, minkä jälkeen mustetin paneelia kevyesti (stanssi jättää valkoisen reunuksen paneelin ympärille). Ennen korttipohjaan kiinnittämistä leimasin tekstileiman setistä Beautiful Heart. Nämä Penny Blackin stanssit ja leimat löytyvät nettikaupastaan, linkit yllä.

Penny Black Dreaming: Bliss



I have a couple of cards to share using the new gorgeous floral stamp by Penny Black called Bliss. Why two? Simply because I could not decide whether to colour the image with Copics or watercolours so I did both!

For the first card, I folded the card base out of Copic friendly cardstock and stamped the image with Memento ink. I stamped the image almost in full to the lower right hand corner and then only parts of the image on the top half of the card, after which I coloured them with my Copics. The sentiment is from the new sentiment set called Huggable and I stamped it with the same Memento ink. To finish the card, I masked the images on the top half of the card and sponged some Distress Oxide inks around them.

I'd like to enter my card to the following challenge:
* Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes




The second card is pretty similar. I folded the card base out of watercolour cardstock and stamped Bliss only once on it before colouring it with my Lukas Aquarell 1862 watercolours. I stamped the sentiment using stamps from the same sentiment set as above, Huggable. I then sponged some Distress Oxide ink around the edges of the card before adding some gold splatters with my watercolour brush and Sheer Shimmer Spritz.

I'd like to enter my card to the following challenges:
* Penny Black Saturday Challenge: Anything Goes - Optional 'Water and/or Watercolour'
* Crafting By Designs: August - Anything Goes




The stamps I used are all by Penny Black from their new collection, Dreaming, and available in their online store. Here are clickable links to the products I used:
* Bliss (40-667)
* Huggable (30-588)



Tein pari korttia Penny Blackin uudella Bliss-leimalla, koska en osannut päättää, väritänkö sen Copiceilla vai vesiväreillä, joten tein molemmat! Ensimmäiseen korttiin leimasin leimakuvan melkein kokonaisuudessaan oikeaan alanurkkaan ja sitten vain osia siitä kortin yläreunaan ja väritin ne Copiceilla. Sitten maskasin yläreunan leimakuvat ja mustetin yläreunan Distress Oxide -musteilla, minkä jälkeen leimasin tekstileiman, joka on uudesta Huggable-tekstileimasetistä. Toiseen korttiin leimasin leimakuvan vain kerran ja väritin vesiväreillä. Tekstileiman kokosin niin ikään Huggable-setin leimoista. Tämänkin kortin reunat mustetin Distress Oxide -musteella ja roiskin vielä perään kultaroiskeita vesivärisiveltimellä ja Sheer Shimmer Spritz -suihkeella. Leimat ovat siis kaikki Penny Blackin ja saatavilla nettikaupastaan, linkit yllä.
