Just for fun 15

Morning and hello!
Another one, just for the fun of it from me. And this was really a blast from the past. Colouring with distress inks. I don't do that very often but when I really start it, I always wonder why I don't do it more often. Maybe now when I have some extra days off. It was so good to hear that I don't have to prepare tons of catalogs for shows during the summer. Thank you Covid for that! Finally something good with it. I might even be able to enjoy my vacation this year, or I lose my job, either one will be fine with me.

Ok, that was not why you dropped by for today. I have used an old Tida from Magnolia Sweden. Then there is a cheerful paper pad wich I really don't have a clue about where and what I have found it. It's probably from Poland. The little more colourful and cool paper pads is mainly from that part of the year. I like them, they are a bit odd and make me happy! I have done quite a lot of fussy  cutting to get some lovely detais for my card. I find this card kind of charming. I really like it. 

Anyway, I hope you like this happy card of mine. Take the chance to inspired and start creationg something of your own, you might even find some great old stamps or papers that you have not used in ages!

Take care and do something that makes you happy!

Love and hugs

Use a sentiment over at The Paper Shelter

Morning and hello!
Midweek again! Time really flies by quickly doesn't? Anyway, we have a new challenge up for you over at the Paper Shelter and this weeks theme is set to "Use a sentiment". Nice and easy I hope?

Of corse as it is a Paper Shelter challenge have I used one of the fabby images from the company called Work out time. I really should be doing some working out myself but at the moment I have to be happy about me getting to work twice per week. One day I will get back on track again, I promise you that. At least I use my MTB to and from my work. 


The designer paper I have used for this card is from Cocoa Vanilla studio if I remember everything right. I bought tons of paper and die cuts from them even if they  are hard to get here to use in my boys photo albums. Some smaller pieces ended up here and even a die cut for my sentiment. The image is coloured with my promarkers. I have also used a bunch of stars as decoration because in my mind are you not working hard enough if you don't see stars when lifting weights. LoL



You can play along with our challenge up to three times, and one of these do you have to use a Paper Shelter image. However, you always have the chance to win over at our challenge. Playing with another brand gives you the chance to win three digis of your choise. Playing with our challenge gives you the chance of winning a gift voucher worth $30.

Take care and keep crafting!

Love n hugs

Anything goes or texture over at Creatalicious Challenges

Morning and hello! 
Time for a new creation from me and this is my last card for the Creatalicious challenges. A big thank you to Melanie and the team for having me!

I have decided to step down as I don't feel too well at the moment and need time to just do things without "preasure of dead lines and musts". 

The image is a sponsor image from our challenge sponsor. Take a look here for more info. 

I have used just a partial of the image as I love the checky face. The designer papers are from Maja Design. It's some left overs from other projects and so are the details as well. 


Well, I hope you will play along with our anything goes or ad texture challenge. It will last for about two weeks. There is a new challenge up around the 15th.

Take care and do something you love!

Love n hugs

Just for fun 14

Morning and hello!
I have not been creating much lately, but I have during spring and winter time as I have been sleeping terrible bad. Nothing like colouring, cutting and glueing in the bed. Too bad that I managed to cut my duvets the other day. Well, I mostly use old stuff in my bed as I know I will probably make a mess somehow. LoL


Anyway, even if I have not been crafting much lately do I have a bunch of cards to show, but little by little. I thought I show you a little mini card that I made last summer and still is unshow. It's stamps and dies from my ever growing collection of Lawn Fawn stamps and dies. I have coloured with different mediums here as it looks, some glitter pens, some markers, and some water colours and inks. It sounds fun, I probably have to do it again soon. Only a few weeks left until  vacation starts. It will be good with no musts but it will also feel a bit strange as I have only been working 8 hours per week now during the Corona times.

Anyway, I thought it would be nice to show a summer card model mini and still with the feeling of sea.

Love n hugs
Marie

Use a die over at Passion for Promarkers

Morning and hello!
It is time for new fun challenge here at Passion for Promarkers. Our theme is set to "Use a die". My card has a few  dies around here. The image is cut out with spellbinders round die and then there is a decorated border to that part of the card. I have also used a punch with is kind of a die, it's an old Martha Steward punch that I still loves to bits.


Sponsoring this challenge is Dies to Die for and they are offering one lucky winner a lovely prize of a £15 voucher. How nice isn't that?


My image is from Sugar Nellie and it's really old, but it's still a favourite of mine. It was quite a long time since I coloured this one, but now I found use for. I will probably dig the image out again and start colouring them all over again. I totally adore them. 

For the details have I got back to basic again. A chain of pearls around the image for some nice details. Then there is plenty of flowes that I have added around the image and kind of making it into a frame. Some panels and a puch from Martha Stewart. I did also add a bunch of pearls in the corners. A green ribbon with a tide bow. Some lovely flowers and fabby butterfly charm is also added to the mix. Ohh! And the paper pad is from Pink paislee. Indigo and Ivy. 

Anyway, I hope you like the card and that I manage you to do something creative today! It's always nice to have you looking around. 

Love n hugs
Marie
