Happy New Year

 I can´t belive 2021 is soon over...

I´ll be back on the 31st with a few top-lists from this year. 

If you also will post some top-lists please leave a comment,

 I would love to pop over to see them!

Now I want to share a Happy New Year card I made using a few different stamp sets from Lawn Fawn. I had so much fun masking to make these birds raise their wings in a cheer!

I have coloured with ProMarkers and used Distress inks to make the background. I added some stickles to their glasses to make them fizz.. I was planning to use some at the circles in the background too but was unsure where to put it so I decided to not do it.

I used following sets:

Happy Wedding

Special Delivery

Let´s Bokeh

Party Animal

A Bug Deal

Snow Cool

Hay There

I decided to leave the leaves white. I think that turned out really cool and also limited the colours used. I wished you could see the card in real the colours look so much brighter than on the photo (I blame snowstorm and darkness).

I would like to enter this card into following challenges:

Lawn Fawnatics #115 - Inspiration board (2/1)

Passion for Markers #621 - Mega Christmas (3/1) Won
Corrosive Challenge #12 - AG (6/1) Top 3

 Happy Tuesday,

It´s almost Christmas,

I got 2 more days to work and then I got one day off before Christmas (yes we do celebrate on the 24th, we are a bit strange here in Sweden)

I´m nearly done with the gifts and then I only got a bit more to do with prep. food and candy. It will be good. I try no to stress to much but can´t help feeling a bit behind all the time this year.... I´m sure it will be Christmas anyway.

I´m hoping for a white Christmas this year (and it looks like it could happen) if my wish comes true I will try to enjoy it as much as these cute bears do!

I have used an image called Beary Fun Sleigh Ride


isn´t it cute?

I have coloured with ProMarkers.

I also made the background with distress ink and a snowflake background stencil from Lawn Fawn. I think this is my new fav colour combo!

I cut out a red wavy banner and embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder. The sentiment continues inside the card: and a Merry Christmas

My last DT card for CRAFTY CATZ

 I´m feeling a bit sad today

even though it´s my own decision

but this will be my last post as a DT for the most wonderful challenge blog


(but hopefully I will be able to make a GDT appearance)

Today´s challenge is as always easy to join in as the theme is


optional twist - Christmas Celebrations

we are so lucky to be sponsored by

Prize is 2 Images From The Shop

I have used an image so kindly given to our DT to create with. 

It´s called Christmas Sweater Seth

I have coloured with ProMarkers. I then fussy cut the image and added him to a stripy pattern paper. I thought it would be fun to have a Christmas jumper in some non traditional colours to add to the festive celebration.

I stamped some other images to build up the little scene. I used stamps from Lawn Fawn. The die cut little lights are also from the same company, as is the sentiments I used.

Please join in with this last challenge before the Christmas break. Pop over here to see my talented team mates wonderful Christmas creations.

I have used the new image called


I have coloured it with ProMarkers and added a few highlights with a white gel pen. I fussy cut my image. I tried to coloure the heart as one of the planets on the pattern paper (EP paper pad). I also stamped a planet and coloured that one in the same way as well. 

I thought this image would work well on a Valentine´s card for a child or maybe on a "thinking of you" card.

New release over at ALL DRESSED UP STAMPS

 Happy Tuesday!

Hope you are well and staying safe,

it feels like it all starts up again... but I guess we knew this would happen...

So we need something positive and fun

and why not get it over at


Wendy has done it again and created the most wonderful images, perfect for those last minute Christmas cards.

Look at these:

You can find some new projects over at 

ADU´s FB page too!

I got to create with

Christmas Pet

I have coloured with ProMarkers and then fussy cut the image. I also added a few white stripes at his jumper with a white gel pen.

I have used a paper from a new to med paper brand called p13 and the paper pad is called Cosy Winter. I love the colour combo in this pad. The paper was a bit large for my card base so I cut it to size and then used the left overs to fussy cut the pattern and then add it to the scene to build it up. Think it turned out really good even though you can see the edges at a few spots.

I used a clear stamp from Lawn Fawn for the sentiment.

Also added a few wooden stars at the top and bottom.

Hope you like him as much as I do

Keep crafting!

Hugs Nick

yes I know it´s a week excuse...

I wanted to show you the card I made anyway since I really love the way my background turned out. I used a shimmer powder from Nuvo and it really shimmers, even though it´s a bit hard to see on this photo

I have coloured with ProMarkers.

I used this very pretty pattern paper from EP. The 6x6 paper pack is called Baby Girl but I think it fits even older girls, don´t you think?

I fussy cut some of the flowers from the pattern to use as embellishment on the sentiments circles. Think it turned out really cute. Also added a few enamel dots. My favorite embellishment at the moment!
