#62 - Holliday Cheer

So my friend Chelle where talking about having an altered canvas swap, and I really liked the sound of that. I have always looked at others canvases but been to afraid to try them myself. And I decided that if there where going to be a swap I would want to join, and if I would join I needed to have tried it out first. So I bought a couple of canvases on my way home. I also had a whole bunch of pine branches that had been left over from another project (post is coming soon) so I wanted to use them up to. And to really jump into the deep end I decided I wanted it distressed. I liked how it turned out, hope you like it to. And as the stamp is from Simon Says stamp and the Simon Says Stamp Challenge this week is Anything Goes I enter it there.

#55 - Thanks with Sky

We don't celebrate Thanksgiving here in Sweden (kind of obvious why), so when Simon Says Stamp Challenge was Thanksgiving/Thank You this week, I of course choose Thank you. But then I started looking for sentiments, and I realized that I only own 5 thank you stamps. Then I started thinking and I realized I haven't sent out that many thank you cards, I mostly make Christmas/birthday cards. So this kind of new for me. I decided to in up Sky from The Toread Collection, you might see that this is my favorite stamp collection at the moment. She is paired up with some Bo Bunny Papers from the Serenity Collection. Hope you like her

This weeks video and card or should I say last week, I'm about a day late, is featuring the Mulberry Wood Stamp, Wish Upon A Star.

#48 Teddy Bo & Co - A card video

All of my bfs brothers has had their birthdays, so I needed to make some cards for them. Male cards are quite hard, you have to weigh the maleness against all those things you want to add. My bf wanted me to add a duck, but at that moment I totally forgot about the little shuffle duck I have from the popcorn stamp set. So instead it became a Teddy Bo & Co stamp that became the focal image. I also got to play with my new embossing folder from Darice to give the card some texture. Hope you like my card and the video.

#47 - A male birthday card

So I need to make a couple of male birthday cards, and that is not the easiest task, not that I do very girly cards, but most of my stamps are more at the girly spectrum. So I went into my ecraft cuttingfile library again, and found another bird. I also wanted to use this weeks lovely sketch over at Mojo Monday. I also thought I enter this in Simon Says Stamp Challenge that this week is Anything Goes. The color combination was inspired by Papermanias 6 x 6 paper pack Birdsong that I have had in my stash forever. Hope you enjoy my card!

#37 - 45 Another kind of christmas

Have been cleaning my apartment all day because tomorrow we will have a showing of it as we are moving soon and need to get it sold. So this mean I'm not allowed to let my craft table be the terrible mess its usually is. And I bought the Let's Make Card Magazine, Issue 54, yesterday I decided that I would challenge myself to only use the products in the kit. I was allowed to add adhesive though. These designs are so color full and so full with pattern, not how I usually craft, but it was really fun, a big challenge. And here are those nine cards I made. Hope you like them.
