Birthday Bouquet - Synttärikimppu

Made a birthday card with my very first Teeny Tiny Townie by Stamping Bella, this one is called 'Teeny Tiny Townie with a bouquet'. I coloured the image with my Copic markers and die cut the panel with Stitched Stackers die by Penny Black. I then stamped my sentiment and added a few tiny sequins as my embellishments. For the background I used a bit of patterned paper.

* Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes

Tein synttärikortin ihkaensimmäisellä Teeny Tiny Townie -leimallani, tämä on siis Stamping Bellan Teeny Tiny Townie with a Bouquet. Väritin leimakuvan Copiceilla ja stanssasin paneelin Penny Blackin Stitched Stackers -setin stanssilla. Tekstileima on Vilda Stampsin ja koristeina pieniä paljetteja. Taustalle laitoin hieman kuviopaperia.

Banner with flowers - Banneri kukkineen

I don't think I've ever used this image from the Best Buds set by Paper Smooches even though I've had the set for ages now so it was about time I used it. I did quick Copic colouring on it, stamped the sentiment ('Congrats' in Finnish) and die cut the image out. Then I took a piece of patterned paper and die cut the circle on it, adhered it to my card base and adhered the image on the circle. I also added tiny clear sequins to embellish the card (in the photo, they are not really visible against the white background but are around the banner).

* Penny Black and More: March - Going round in circles
* Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Cute

Minulla on ollut Paper Smoochesin Best Buds -setti jo hyvän aikaa, mutta en ole koskaan käyttänyt tätä leimakuvaa, joten nyt oli korkea aika. Väritin sen pikaisesti Copiceilla, leimasin tekstin ja stanssasin leimakuvan. Taustan kuviopaperiin stanssasin ympyrän, kiinnitin paperin korttipohjaan ja leimakuvan sen päälle. Koristeiksi laitoin jokusen pienen kirkkaan paljetin.

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.

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.

* 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.

* 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.

* 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.

* 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)

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)
* Holiday Trimmings (80-013)

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.
