Another summer card

 Hi there

It´s so wonderful with summer, isn´t it?

I love lazy days and the option of just doing whatever I feel like...

Here is another summer card using the new Pool Party stamps from Lawn Fawn.

I have coloured with ProMarkers. I used Nuvo´s Shimmer powder again to make the water background. I also used white embossing powder for the sentiment and the waves. At the end I added some blue sequins.

Floating by to say.... have a magical Birthday!

 Have just made a Birthday card for the challenge over at Lawn Fawnatics Challenge. Their theme is Summertime Fun. I have combined a few different stamp sets and had so much fun making this.

I used some shimmer powder to make the water. It´s such a shame that you can´t see how it shimmers, it´s so pretty!

I have used stamps from Pool Party, Life is Good and Dream Big. I coloured with ProMarker and then cut them out with the coordinating dies.

Here is another image:

On the inside I have stamped: Have a magical Birthday!

Lawn Fawn Swap Card

 Happy Tuesday!

Today I want to share a card I made for a swap over at a Facebook group called Lawn Fawn Addicts. You had to make one card using something from the new released items - just add glitter, canvas and easel, art supplies or paint splatter background stencil. 

Here is what I made:

I have coloured the images with ProMarkers.

I thought it would be fun to have a cat painting a mouse picture. Think it turned out rather cute. Here is a close up picture of the "mice painting"

I have used a few different stamp sets:
Just add Glitter
Purrfectly Wicked Add-on
Virtual Friends Add-on
Purrfectly Wicked

I also used some different dies and papers from LF:
Art Supplies
Canvas and Easel
coordinating dies with above stamp sets
All the dots Petite pack

To make the base of my card I used a die from Studio Light. It´s a Center Step Card die (SL-ES-CD14). You can make these yourself but I really enjoy using the die since it make it so much easier and quicker! 

I cut out the jar twice, once in cardstock that I coloured with my ProMarkers and once in vellum. Think it turned out great when you could see the brushes, almost like a glas jar, right?

Hope you like it and that you will have a great creative day!

A summer card

 Hi Everyone,

How are you doing?

I have been a bit quite. Had a lot to do with work and family gatherings for the last few weeks but now I´m off work until August 8th! So great!

Today I want to share a card I made a few weeks ago for one of my son´s teachers. A little Summer Thank you card...

I have coloured with ProMarkers.

I used distress inks together with a stencil for the background.

I mixed stamps from a lot of different Lawn Fawn sets to make this card. Think it turned out so cute and fun. I could see myself sitting on that rock eating ice cream, listening to the waves from the ocean.

Here are some close up pictures:

Lawn Fawn stamp sets that I used:
Bicycle Built For You
Screen Time
Crazy Antics
Mermaid For You
Life is Good
Toucan Do It
Christmas Dreams

Lawn Fawn Dies that I used:
Palm Trees
Stitched Wave Borders
Stitched Hillside Borders
Outside in Stitched Rectangle Stackables

My last card for Digi Doodle Studios Stamps

 Hello Everyone,

Hope you are all good!

Today I write with a heavy heart. I love this company so much but this will be my last card as part of their Design Team. My printer is broken and I can´t find one that will print the thickness of the papers I have to use for my colouring (or I can find one but not one that I´m willing to pay the prize for...) So for now I have to say goodbye to my DT friends.

For my last card I have used one of the new released images. This cutie is called Luke and you can find him here.

I have coloured with ProMarkers and then fussy cut Luke and his little friend.

I used some left over papers from my stash. I think the flower pattern one is from AC and the other green ones are from Kaiser Craft. I used some dies from Lawn Fawn to die cut the flower border, hillside, grass and the word hello.

Hope you like it, here is a close up on the image:
