Penny Black Share the Love: Tenderness

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas! With Christmas behind us now, it's time to look forward to Valentine's day and Penny Black has just released new stamps and dies that are perfect for all Valentine's day creations and the collection is aptly named - Share the Love! I'm going to Share the Love with a floral card that I made with a stamp set called Tenderness and its matching dies. All the floral stamps are from the said set, I coloured them with my Copic markers and die cut them with the matching dies. For the background I used a die called Diamond Cut, I cut it once out of white linen textured cardstock and just used the frame. Second time I die cut it out of kraft cardstock and fitted that die cut into the white frame (the white you see peeking from behind the kraft panel is my card base). I then heat embossed the stamped part of the sentiment on a strip of dark brown cardstock, the stamp that says 'I love' comes from a new stamp set called Only You. The 'You' I die cut with an older die called For You and adhered it onto the sentiment strip. I then arranged and adhered all the flowers and the sentiment strip in place.

I'd like to enter my card to the following challenges:
* Penny Black Saturday Challenge: December - Anything Goes
* Penny Black and More: December - Flowers
* Watercooler Wednesday: WWC252 - Anything Goes

All the products used are by Penny Black and available in their online store:
* Tenderness (30-655)
* Tenderness Cut Out (51-601)
* Only You (30-666)
* Diamond Cut (51-499)
* For You (51-105)

Toivottavasti joulu meni mukavasti! Nyt, kun joulukorteista on päästy, on aika tehdä ystävänpäivä/Valentine's Day-kortteja. Penny Blackilta on tullut uusia leimoja ja stansseja, jotka sopivat teemaan hyvin. Tähän korttiin käytin uusia Tenderness-setin kukkia, jotka väritin Copiceilla ja stanssasin Tenderness Cut Out -stansseilla. Taustalle tein kehikon Diamond Cut -stanssilla. Tekstiin yhdistin uudesta Only You -tekstisetistä tuon 'I love' ja vanhemmasta stanssisetistä For You tuon 'You'n. Kaikki käytetyt tuotteet ovat siis Penny Blackin ja saatavilla nettikaupastaan, linkit yllä.

Lilac - Syreeni

I just love colouring this little cutie! She's Tiny Townie Garden Girl Lilac by Stamping Bella and I coloured her with my Copics. For the background, I used a bit of patterned paper matted onto cardstock and a half of a doily (haven't used those in ages!). I stamped the sentiment ('For the Birthday Girl'), added a bit of twine in a bow and some sticky back pearls to embellish the card.

I'd like to enter my card to the following challenges:
* CAS(E) This Sketch! #351
* Cute Card Thursday: Challenge 612 - Anything Goes

Tämä leimakuva on ihana värittää! Leima on Stamping Bellan Tiny Townie Garden Girl Lilac, jonka väritin Copiceilla. Taustalle laitoin kuviopaperia ja pienen kakkupaperin puolikkaan, tekstileiman, hieman nyöriä ja helmiä.

Wreath for Christmas - Kranssi jouluksi

Once again I decided to make a Christmas card with a non-Christmas stamp, simply because I wanted to colour this image :) Also I think she looks quite festive and her wreath looks like it could be a gift so I think she fits well for the job. The image is Curvy Girl with a Heart Wreath by Stamping Bella and I coloured the image with my Copic markers. I also added a bit of Stickles glitter glue to the yellow flowers in the wreath. I die cut the glittery gold frame with an MFT die and the word die is by Penny Black, as is the heat embossed part of the sentiment. I added a bit of vellum behind the frame. For the background, I chose patterned paper with some festive ligths. Lastly, I embellished the card with some enamel dots.

I'd like to enter my card to the following challenges:
* Time Out Challenges: Challenge #150 - Merry & Cheerful
* Stamping Sensations: December - Anything Goes
* Watercooler Wednesday Challenge: WWC251 - All About Occasions

Tein taas joulukortin ei-jouluisella leimalla. Tämä on Stamping Bellan Curvy Girl with a Heart Wreath, väritin sen Copiceilla ja lisäsin Sticklesiä keltaisiin kukkiin. Kehyksen stanssasin MFT:n stanssilla, sanan Penny Blackin stanssilla ja loput tekstistä embossasin kullalla (leima Penny Blackin). Kehyksen taakse vähän vellumia ja kuviopaperiin kiinni. Lopuksi muutama enamel dots koristeeksi.

Besties - Parhaat ystikset

I'm taking a break from Christmas cards and decided to make a card with one of my new Stamping Bella stamps. This one is called Besties. I coloured the image with my Copics and added a bit of sparkle to the pink dress with my Gelly Roll pen in gold. The sentiment is a mixture of two brands: the stamped sentiment is by WPlus9 and the die cut sentiment is by Winnie & Walter. I matted the panel onto kraft cardstock and added a bit of patterned paper by Lili of the Valley behind it. To finish the card, I embellished it with sequins.

I'd like to enter my card to the following challenges:
* CAS(E) This Sketch! #350 (I turned the sketch around a bit)
* Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Let's Sparkle (there's sparkle on the pink dress and the sequins sparkle a bit too)
* Watercooler Wednesday Challenge: WWC250 - Feminine Anything Goes
* Stamping Sensations: December - Anything Goes

Hoping this photo shows off the added gold in the pink dress.

Hieman taukoa joulukortteiluun ja jotain muuta välillä. Tämän tein uudella Stamping Bella -leimallani. Tämän nimi on Besties, väritin sen Copiceilla ja lisäsin vähän blingiä pinkkiin mekkoon kultaisella Gelly Roll -kynällä. Teksti on sekoistus kahta eriä: leimattu teksti on WPlus9:ia ja stanssattu on Winnie & Walteria. Kerrostus kraftille ja taustalle Lili of the Valleyn kuviopaperia. Loppusilaus paljeteilla.

Penguins - Pingviinit

Here are the Christmas cards I made with MFT's Sweet Holiday Penguins set. I have a thing for penguins and these are just so very cute! For all of the cards, I coloured the images with my Copics and used dies by Penny Black, except for the banner which is an MFT die. The sentiment in all of the says 'Christmas Joy' in Finnish.

 I'd like to enter my card to the following challenge:

Tein nämä joulukortit MFT:n Sweet Holiday Penguins -setin leimoilla, jotka väritin Copiceilla. Käyttämäni stanssit ovat Penny Blackin, paitsi banneri, joka on MFT:n.

AAA Birthday #8: December - Joulukuu

It's December, time for a new challenge at AAA Birthday and our theme this time is 'Balloons & Banners'. As our Guest Designer, we have the talented Maaike joining us.

For my card, I used the cute little mouse with his balloon from the Penny Black set It's Your Day. I coloured the image with my watercolours and added some details in my white Gelly Roll pen. I also sponged some Distress Oxide ink to the edges of the image. I then die cut the frame using Penny Black's Stitched Loops die and adhered it in place. The banner is by Lawn Fawn, I stamped and die cut it before watercolouring it. I stamped the sentiment ('Congrats') with tiny alphabet stamps by Papertrey Ink onto the banner and adhered the banner in place. Lastly, I embellished the card with clear sequins.

Be sure to check the details on how to enter on AAA Birthday blog. You'll also find lots of inspiration there, my team mates have created gorgeous cards for your inspiration.

Vuoden viimeinen haaste alkaa AAA Birthdayssä ja aiheena on Balloons & Banners eli ilmapallot ja bannerit. Omaan korttiini käytin suloista hiirtä ilmapalloineen Penny Blackin It's Your Day -setistä, väritin sen vesiväreillä ja lisäilin yksityiskohtia valkoisella Gelly Roll -kynällä. Reunoille mustetin Distress Oxide -mustetta. Kehykset stanssasin Penny Blackin Stitched Loops -stanssilla ja kiinnitin paikoilleen. Banneri on Lawn Fawnin, vesiväritin sen ja leimasin tekstin siihen Papertrey Inkin aakkosleimoilla.
