Just be you spring card - 7 Dots Studio Design Team

Today I am sharing this card I made for the 7 Dots Studio Design Team. It is also my entry for the current challenge at Mixed Media & Art.

Spring is a popular time for weddings in my part of the world. So I thought I´d make a card that can that would fit for such an occasion. I love the soft romantic feeling in the "Cotton Candy Dreams" Collection and decided to use pieces from it for my card. The mixture of flowers with different textures was one thing that appealed to me in the Mixed Media & Art Moodboard, and I tried to use as many types of flowers as possible. 

I used the Sugar Haze paper as my base paper and added a tag from the collection on top of it. Then I used embellishments like flowers, tulle and cheese cloth to create dimension. Element Stickers in form of circles with a piece of pebble on top make a great focal point as well as it gives a bit of sparkle. And I think I found the perfect sentiment in my Word Sticker sheet!

Thank you for your visit today!

I have used products from 7 Dots Studio, Tattered Angels, Canvas Corp, Prima Marketing, Wild Orchid Crafts.

My favourite things layout - 7 Dots Studio Design Team

This month’s challenge at 7 Dots Studio is a nice and easy one. Just think what’s your favourite thing. Would you like to share it with us? The theme of this challenge is “My Favourite Things” so now You have a chance to use one of your favourite things, Scrapbooking to show us your other interests. We can’t wait to see what will you create this month.

For me picking what to do for this topic was not as obvious as you could imagine. There are a lot of things that are my favourites – my family, food, wine, exercise and much more. But one of the things I have come to appreciate the past years is the area where I live. Even though I have lived here all my life I constantly find new places to explore – many of them filled with great beauty and mystery. The place on the pictures is an old mill – I have been running past it for more than 20 years without even knowing it was there – my husband showed it to me and I was totally amazed. I love how the composition with the photos and papers & embellishments from the Writer´s Block Collection turned out.

Perfectly Imperfect Card - Words & Paintery Creative Team

It´s time for a new challenge at Words & Paintery today! I made this card inspiered by the moodboard and the quote from Heidi Powell. 

The backround paper from Tattered Angels Mixed Media Orgins is so much perfectly imperfect as it can be - crackled but still beautiful. The butterfly is a rub on from the Parchment Rub on "Grow" (7gypsies Architextures). 

I love how the feathers turned out when I painted them with pink High Impact Paint. They also comes from 7gypsies Architextures - Tall Base Feathers. The Scrap FX chipboard compliment them well.

And here´s the challenge board! Please visit the Words & Paintery blog for more details and some great inspiraton from the Creative Team.

Easy Easter Cards with a sparkle - Scrap FX Design Team

Happy Easter Everyone! I´m here today with a card set I made for the Scrap FX Design Team. 

The cards was made with a really simple technique. I stamped with the Easter Egg Doodle stamp on a stamping paper using two tones of stamping ink. Then cut out the eggs and guilded the edges. After that I easily fastened them to the plain white cards with 3D squares and then stamped a sentiment. Really easy – but I love how they turned out. Since I am sending the cards in the mail it´s important that they are rather flat – these are but still have a dimensional feeling.

Thank you for stepping by today!

Let your light shine - Berry71Bleu Design Team

I found Berry71Bleu´s moodboard really inspiring and decided to make a canvas using crackle paste and lot of textures.

I used a stretched canvas from Canvas Corp that I covered with heavy white gesso, stamping, and crackle paste. To get the right rust effect I painted the edges of the canvas with Tattered Angels High Impact paint in the color Aqua before adding the crackle paste.

I also dry brushed on different shades of Glimmer Mists to add more dept to the rust effect. The finishing touch is the tulip from 7gypsies Architextures. The tulip comes from the Parchment Rub-on sheet "Grow", the is one of my new product loves! The sentiment was cut out from the packaging.
