Micey nice day...

A card for today, to wish you a "micey" nice day.
Penny  Black stamp set with watercolour pencil.
October Afternoon paper.
As it seems; I like to work with the same items to make sets of cards.
Often one stampset will inspire me to get crafty again.

To the moon and back

I found this sentiment stamp from American Crafts at TK Maxx. It goes well with the cute stamps from Penny Black.
The card layout has been kept simple with clean easy shapes and the coloring is with pencils.

Hello baby

A Penny Black stamp for this sweet baby card.
Coloured with Caran d ' Ache Supracolour pencils on watercolour paper. Die cut flower petals are curled around a paint brush to give them dimension. Papers are by Crate Paper and gem swirl from Prima.
The sentiment on the inside is from a stamp collection by Crafty Secrets.

Card series # 7 and # 8

And now the final ones in this series:
And the very last one, before I ship them out to someone dear:

Card series #5 and # 6

Continuing this post about the card series:
And the next one:

Let's celebrate

How time flies and we are kept busy with so many things in life.
I have a heap of cards just waiting to be photographed and then uploaded to my blog. What you are seeing has not been made recently, but that does not matter. I am not taking part in contests as I have no time and I keep this blog as a reminder to self and perhaps it is used by someone as inspiration. I know, I also get my ideas from somewhere, card or something else.
Here it goes:

A tri-fold card with paper from Crate Paper. A sizzix accordion flower and some circle punches.

Each panel is decorated and "A bug's life" stamp set was used from Crafty Secrets.

Card series #3 and #4

Here is a follow up into my card series made with a set of pre-scored cards and Shrinkies images.
I love putting sequins on cards and colour misting my paper flowers.

Card series #1 and #2

I have made a few cards which are part of  a set of  similar cards.
This is number 1 and 2. All cards are made on American Crafts pre-scored cards, with images used from a pack of Shrinkies. I liked these vintage girls so much that I copied and scanned the Shrinkies for future use as stamps. All sentiments are from the same stampset and images coloured with Faber-Castell Polychromos.
And this is the second card:

Christmas card with LOTV stamp

Another card from the many different ones that I made, but did not get to post on time.
Something a bit different and in soft colours for Christmas. I have coloured the stamp with water colour pencils and the papers are from Melissa Frances.
The sentiments are from Crafty Secrets.

Christmas card series

Ahhh, it has been a while that I have posted. I mean a long while. So much has happened in that time,  I thought never to have time again for this blog.
But I have been crafting, card making and coloring, especially coloring. When I had no energy to sit in my craft room and make something, I still coloured many stamped images.
Last week, we re-arranged my craft room and added a large Kallax book case from Ikea. I wanted the Expedit, but waited so long that now it has been renamed to Kallax. I still use my second hand Bisley drawer cabinets as they are so handy and hold so much.
Let's show you some cards I have made with Crate Paper pre-scored cards and a stamp from Penny Black.


I made 4 cards in total, and all are different. Colored with Copics and pencils.

The inside carries a sentiment, with some washi tape as decoration. All cards have a white card insert.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year everyone!
We woke up to another wet and windy day. This has been our winter with just the odd day in between with some frost.
My card says it all! It is still autumn and I just hope winter is not going to end up in March like last year.
This weather has cost us a some misery at work with power failures. Luckily we are running on a generator now.
You would think in a country where it always rains a lot, they could deal with the rain and wind.... No, they can't, but they are very good at finding excuses, that is one thing for sure. Just pay your bill and the service provider will provide you a service? No thanks to Southern Electric and the monopoly market of the UK! Bleh.
