Christmas Cheers 10-24

Morning and hello!
I am back again with a Christmas card! It was a while since I managed to make anything at all. Have just spent time with my kumi Himo disks and plates lately. It was been a good way to spend restless time and easy to break from when the pain hits hard which it has the last month. I just don't like moist weather and my joints enjoy it even less than I do. Hopefully will the weather be a bit more stable for a while now and I can get some rest from my hard pain. It's 10 times worst when the weather is moist and change from warm to cold or the other way around. 


For my card today have I used a hÄnglar and Wings image from a few years back. I have also used a piece of another stamp from the same company, the sentiment is also from hÄnglar and Wings. Some ribbon is used to break up all the bright colours and some paper roses, a charm, some buttons and a few die cuts together with some nuvo glitter drops. It was fun to make this card and I hope that I  will be able to make a few more Christmas cards during the summer. I have a bunch more to make, that I need to fill up my stash for this coming Christmas.

Hope you have the time to make something that makes you happy!

Love n hugs
Marie

Flower Friday 7-24

Morning and hello!
I am here again with a flower card that I made recently. I had fun with this lovely tulip image. I love to colour this image and it's a blast every time. of course do I not remember it is who have made it. It's an old one as well as the designer papers. 


The designer papers are from Me to You if I am not totally wrong. It is a good match to the bright pink that I used for my tulips. A border made with a punch from my stash is used to add some details. I have also used some silver lined nuvo drops to add some extra details. I also have used a sentiment from hÄnglar and Wings. It looks great together, even managed to make it double matted this time. I hope you like my creation and find some inspiration to make a card or two with your old stash. It's like having new stash after a few years! LoL

Love n hugs

Mini Monday 9-24

Morning and hello!
Here is finally a new card for my Mini-Monday series. This one is a cross stitched one with a fave colour combo that I love: blue and silver. The best ever. I had a period during the winter when I cross stitched some small images for Christmas cards to my pen pals. It was such a relaxing time. Now do I have a few ones with flowers on the go. I have also started to discover kumihimo braiding. Lots of fun so far even if I feel stupid when I don't get the basics. Slowly getting there and I have a whole bunch of beads that I hope to use some day.

Back to the card. I have some more to show that is from my Christmas creations. But for today is it all done. Hope you like my little creation where I also have used some silver stickers for a tone on tone look. 

Love n hugs
Marie

Use a die over at Passion for Markers

Morning and hello!
It's time for a new challenge over at Passion for Markers. This weeks theme is set to "Use a die". Nice and easy for you all to play along with. I have used three of them for my card.


Our fabby sponsor this week is Dies to Die for. They offer one lucky winner a £15 gift voucher. Thank you for that.

And here is my card for this weeks challenge. I have used an old stamp from my stash. It's a stamp from one of my favourite stamp brands called Bildmålarna. They are out of business since many years. I still miss them and the other day did I decide to dig into my stash that still have some unused stamps. This is one of them. 


I have paired the image together with designer papers from Bo Bunny. My photo got a bit strange colour wise but hopefully you can see a little how it looks. I have kept the design simple with just the two unregular rectangles that I have used for the image. I have also used a die for the border panel, a wavy one from Spellbinders. I love the clean look of these dies, the border one I mean. Some black pearls give an extra punch to the card and a little magnolia butterfly from my stash that I want to use up. I have coloured it with my markers as it was pretty dull all in white.

I wish you a great day and look forward to see your creations over at our challenge blog!

Love n hugs

Summer over at Passion for Markers

 Morning and hello!
It is a new day and a new challenge over at Passion for Markers starting today. This week's very fitting theme is set to "Summer". How fun isn't that for a challenge?


Our sponsor this week is ADU offering a lucky winner two digital images of winner's choice. Thank you for that!

For my card have I used a sponsor image called Beach Time. A bit silly image but very charming! I decided to go really, really bold colours for this image. I found a fantastic paper pad in my stash that is pretty bright and happy. A real summer paper pad! 


I had fun adding a few clouds and a piece of twine for a little detail. I printed the image pretty large as I have trouble with all weather changes at the moment and there is trouble colouring. But it turned out happy and bright anyway, let's be happy about that at least. 
Wish you a great day filled with sunshine and happy moments!

Love n hugs
Marie
