Voikukka - Dandelion

Tämä ihana leima on ollut toivelistallani jo kauan ja nyt se (ja muutama muu kaltaisensa...) löysi tiensä minulle. Leimakuva on siis Purple Onion Designsin Wishing, jonka väritin Zigeillä. Värittäessä taisi vain tulla pieni ajatuskatko... Voikukat, joita voi puhaltaa, eivät ole ihan keltaisia enää... ;D No, tässä kortissa se on, ei auta. Tekstileima on myös Purple Onion Designsin. Paljon muuta kortissa ei olekaan, hieman kartonkia ja kuviopaperia vain.

I love this stamp, it's been on my wish list for a long time and now it (along with a few other POD stamps...) found its way to me - yay! The stamp is called 'Wishing' and it's by Purple Onion Designs. I coloured the image with my Zig markers and as you can see, I had a bit of a blank moment when colouring it. The cutie mouse is blowing dandelions and the dandelions you can blow are not yellow, they're white. Hmm... :D The sentiment is a stamp by POD as well, and I only added a bit of cardstock and patterned paper to the card.

Onnea - Congrats

Tällainen synttärikortti meni 11 vuotta täyttäneelle veljenpojalle. Väritin tuon Doodle Factoryn öttiäisen Copiceilla, leikkasin irti ja laitoin silmät. Taustalle Lawn Fawnin kuviopaperia, MFT:n stanssilla stanssattu kehys ja Lawn Fawnin stanssilla stanssattu tähti. Lopuksi leimasin tekstin.

I made this birthday card for my nephew who turned 11. I coloured the stamped image with my Copics and fussy cut him out. I thought he might need some proper eyes, so glued some googly eyes on him. The patterned paper is by Lawn Fawn, and I die cut the frame with My Favourite Things dies and the star with Lawn Fawn dies. I stamped the sentiment ('Congrats!') straight to the background paper.

Uutisia - A Bit of News






Tänään minulla on kortin sijaan jaettavana uutisia! Aikaisemmin keväällä sain meilin, joka sai minut melkeinpä tipahtamaan tuolilta... Minua nimittäin pyydettiin mukaan Penny Blackin CAS-blogiin Simplicity at Its Best! Ja minä sanoin kyllä, kiitos! :) Tämä tarkoittaa siis sitä, että jatkossa teen pari korttia kuussa Simplicity Sisterinä, toisesta näette pienen kurkkauksen täällä ja kokonaan tuolla Simplicity at Its Best -blogissa ja toisen näette kokonaan täällä minun blogissani. Tänään on kurkkauksen aika, joten kannattaa suunnata Simplicity at Its Bestiin katsomaan koko kortit :)

Today I don't have a card to share with you, but I have some amazing news! Earlier in the spring I received an email and after reading it, I could have been knocked over with a feather... I was asked if I'd like to join Penny Black's CAS style blog 'Simplicity at Its Best' as a Simplicity Sister! If? If!? I love Penny Black, so there are no if's - of course I said 'yes, please'! (Well, I did ramble a bit more than that but that was my answer in a nutshell... :D ) So, from now on as a Simplicity Sister I'll share two cards a month made with gorgeous Penny Black goodies, one with only a sneak peek and one as a full card. Today I have the sneak peaks (yes, two..) so please head over to Simplicity at Its Best to see the full cards :)

And before I go, I would like to thank Penny Black and Jill Foster from the bottom of my heart for this amazing opportunity. I am overjoyed! and grateful! and happy! (and a bit nervous..!) and excited!  and... well, you know, really just happy to be a Simplicity Sister :)

Kaktus - Cactus

Tämä kaktus-kortti tuli tehtyä Create a Smilen tuotteilla. Kaktus on Sharp One -setistä, väritin sen Copiceilla ja pöydän mustetin Distress Oxide -musteella. Tagi- ja hello-stanssit ovat niinikään Create a Smilen. Taustalle hieman raitapaperia ja koristeiksi nyöriä ja pari enamel dotsia.

I love this cactus by Create a Smile :) It's from the 'Sharp One' stamp set, I coloured it with my Copics and created the table top for it by sponging some Distress Oxide ink. The tag die and the 'hello' die are both by Create a Smile also. A bit of twine and a couple of enamel dots as embellishments.

Haasteet/Challenges:
* Create a Smile: Summer time
* Addicted to Stamps and More: Challenge #294 - Photo Inspiration
* Cute Card Thursday: Challenge #533 - Anything Goes

Heippa ihana - Hello lovely

Tämän kortin tein The Tonin ihanalla Morning Glory Border -leimalla, jonka väritin Copiceilla. Teksti on Concord & 9th:n. Kiinnitys vaaleanpunaisella korttipohjalle. Paljon muuta kortissa ei olekaan! Ajattelin, että kun tuo leimakuva itsessään on niin runsas, niin muuten kortissa ei tarvitse paljoa olla.

I've quite a CAS flower card to show you again. The stamp I used is gorgeous, it's by The Ton and called 'Morning Glory Border Stamp'. I coloured the image with my Copics. The sentiment is by Concord & 9th. I adhered the panel to a pink card base but decided to not add anything else to it, as the stamped image is as gorgeous as it is visually full so it can carry the card without needing any help from embellishments.

Haasteet/Challenges:
* Less Is More: Challenge #373 - Friendship
* Penny Black and More: June - In the Garden
* That's Crafty! Challenge: A Summer's Day
* Inkspirational: Challenge #162 - Power (it's Flower Power for me :D )
* The Flower Challenge: Challenge #21 - Use a Previous Challenge (I chose to use the Challenge #14 - CAS)

Vähänkö oot rakas - Love you lots

Tämä ystävältä leimattu kuva on Concord&9th:n You Are Here -setistä, väritin sen Zigeillä. Tekstileima on Mama Elephantia ja taustan kirjasinleima on My Favorite Thingsin. Paneelin stanssasin Penny Blackin stanssilla. Koristeina taas paljetteja.

I stamped this image while visiting my dear crafty friend, it's from the set 'You Are Here' by Concord&9th. I coloured the image with my Zig Markers. The sentiment comes from Mama Elephant and the background stamp on the card base is by My Favorite Things. I die cut the panel with a Penny Black die. I added a few sequins (again..) as my final touches.

Haasteet/Challenges:
* TIME OUT Challenges: Challenge #110 - Home Sweet Home Photo Challenge (I was inspired by the gorgeous flowers on the wall paper)

Parane pian - Get well soon

Englanninkielinen parane pian -kortti tällä kertaa. Leimakuva on Penny Blackin setistä Botanical Garden, joka eksyi minulle, kun näin sen jonkun tekemässä kortissa Instagramissa... (itsehillintä? mitä se on..? ;D ). Väritin sen Zigeillä, stanssasin irti Pennyn stanssilla ja leimasin tekstileiman Pennyn setistä Snippets. Jokunen kirkas paljetti ja sitten vain kerrostus kartongille ja korttipohjaan kiinni.

I made a get well soon card with Penny Black products. These gorgeous flowers are a stamp in the 'Botanical Garden' set which somehow ended up in my stash after I saw someone's card made with it on Instagram... (self-control? nope, never heard of that! ;D ). I coloured the image with my Zig markers, die cut the panel with a die from the Penny Black set 'Stitched Square and Circles'. I stamped the sentiment from the 'Snippets' set by Penny Black, added some sequins and layered the panel onto cardstock before adhering to my card blank.

Haasteet/Challenges:
* CAS(E) This Sketch! #272 (I placed my sentiment to the place of the highlighted part of the sketch)
* Penny Black Saturday Challenge: May - Anything Goes with the optional twist of 'Use Your Favourite Penny Black Stamp' (floral stamps are my favourite, any and all of them)
* Addicted to Stamps and More: Challenge #292 - Make Your Mark
* Time Out Challenges: Challenge #109 - Inspired by Words 'Friends Are the Charming Gardeners who Make Our Souls Blossom' (cue word here being 'blossom' :) )
* Happy Little Stampers: May Watercolour Challenge - Anything Goes with the optional twist of CAS
