Christmas Cheer 9-22

Morning and hello!
Another end of a month have been reached. We are on the final day of September. And now is it really time to start making all those Christmas cards. I have used another hÄnglar and Wings stamp set for this card. I use my hÄnglar a lot and if you wonder what hÄnglar means is it at word play. The capital "Ä" is the start of the Swedish word Änglar which means angels and that is what these images is, angels. I am a bit surprized by myself that I have been in love with these images for such a long time now. I use to get bored after a year or so but now with these ones. 

The stamp set is called Pyntande Tomtar. A sweet and charming set to play with. This image is coloured with my Promarkers. The designer papers is some left overs from a Carta Bella, Echo Park or simple story paper pad. I have just a few pieces left of it and have thrown away the cover of the paper pad. 


The lovely border is from a Lawn Fawn die set and I have also use some ribbon, a charm and some pearls to decorate this card. I had loads of fun creating this and I think that my card collection for this coming season has just started. It's nothing that is more fun to create than Christmas cards.

Enjoy your day and do take some time to create something today!

Love n hugs

Just 4 the fun of it 27-22

 Morning and hello!
Here comes another card for the fun of it from me. This time is the card made of products from Maja Design. I have used one of the toppers instead of a coloured image. I do it from time to time, but not that often. 


The products are from Bohemian Harmony paper pack. I have also used two colours of cardstock Java (brown) and wheat (almost white). Some dots from Nuvo drops is also used, it's vintage brown colour if I remember right. A Martha Stewart punch is also used to give some more details to my creation. 

This is all from me for today. Do take some time and do something that makes you happy!

Love n hugs

Just 4 Fun 26-22

 Morning and hello!
I am back with a little creation here on my blog again. I don't have as many posts this year as I had last year. I have made more cards than I show here but I have very little time on the computer this year to see if I can make my fingers and hands to heal. It has not helped so far but it saves me some pain.


This card is made with my favourite brand of stamps and one of my fave brands of designer papers. This one comes from the pack of Bohemian Harmony. I am now waiting for the Christmas news. I love a good Christmas pack of papers. I have used some vintage photo distress ink from Rangers. I have coloured with my distress reinkers for a change. An old Martha Stewart punch is also used. Some nuvo drops finish my card off.

Well, this is all for today. Have a good day and do something that makes you happy today!

Love n hugs

Favourite tool, product or embellishment over at Passion for Markers

 Morning and hello!
The autumn is here again and I love it! I love the colours that comes with this time of the year. It's easier to sit inside and create and not feel guilty about it. I am keeping my fingers crossed that I will keep having a little less pain in my fingers so that I can colour again for more than really short times.


This week's theme is set to "Your fave tool, product or embellishment" over at Passion for markers and our sponsor this week is Doctor Digi's House of Stamps. Prize will be two digis of winners choice. Thank you so much for the prize!

For my card have I used the image called "Crouching tiger hidden Dunderton". I love that images as I see all of my brothers in it. They were all into jiu jitsu and Tae Kwondo as youths and two of them are still at it even if they have changed to Brasilian jiu jitsu. And now are both nieces and nephews at it as well. So I know that I will have use of this card.


Our challenge have a special theme this week. "Use your favourite tool, product or embellishment". My favourite tool is my collection of paper trimmers but I would never be able to make any card without images or colouring mediums. But my trimmer is my fave tool at this point. I do also use a lot of nuvo drops on my cards, there isn't many cards I have made the last year that I have not used them on. 

I have made this card with many layers which I really enjoy. So lots of trimming of papers for this card. The only embellishment I have used are my drops in red on this card. 

I hope that you will play along with us over at Passion for Markers, it is some lovely digis up for grabs. 

Take good care and take some time to do something for yourself!

Love n hugs

Christmas Cheer 8-22

Morning and hello!
A brand-new day has started, and we are already at the end of August. The kids are back in school, and routines starts to come back to life again. As good as it is to be on holiday as good is it to get back to normal again.

I have spent some time with my Christmas stash and have created a card for the coming holidays. Once again did I end up with a stamp from Hänglar and Wings. They are my happy place at this point. It has really lasted for a long time by now. 


This cutie is from the set called Pepparkakor 2020. It's a set of two bigger images, two smaller ones and some sentiments. I have paired this sweetie with some designer papers from Poland if I remember correctly. I don't have the pad close to me at this point. I love the paper in the background. Such smashing colours and an especially useful pattern to that. 

I have decorated with some doilies, some gemstones, a charm, and flowers from my stash. I am happy about how this card turned out. A big bow finishes my card off.

Okie my friends, time to finish for this time. I see you all soon again. More Christmas creations will soon come your way!

Love n hugs
Marie
