DT Copic Marker Sverige: Our first challenge!

This is my first post as a member of Copic Marker Sweden DT and we have a challenge for you - this first time it's a sketch and we want you to use the word "joy" in some way - either as a sentiment or that your project is just bubbling with joy.

This is my inspirational card - or at least a sneak... To see the rest you better skip on over to Copic Marker Sweden. My teamies have some wonderful creations for you as well...

Have fun with the sketch and have a magical day!!!

DT ELB: A turqouise layout!

This a layout I created from a sketch from SweScrapbook for En liten butik. The papers are from the webshop.

But I'll start off with some details for a change... Here is the banner and you can also see that I have used a couple of maskes along with glimmer mist and gesso.

Here are some of the flowers (private)....

More flowers.... (also private)

Here is the finished layout.... I just love to look on my sons face - he looks so totally happy but still with a fox behind both ears... The title is "skållhet" which means "burning hot" and it relates to the fact that he's in an outdoor hot tub - the steamy fog is from the water and I wanted to make a cloudy/foggy layout to keep the theme from the photo.

Have a magical day and if you are going to Stockholm Scrap&Pearl Event - do come say Hi! I'll be in En liten butik's shop coloring images most of Saturday the 6th of April.

SweScrapbook: Playful with Mo Manning!

Hey there my lovelies!! I'm so glad you stopped by today as I have a birthday card to show you... Love this image by Mo Manning and also the gorgeous papers from Simple Stories.

I made this card lifting a card over at SweScrapbook - the card was colorful and it inspired me to make a card full of colors and childhood joy.

I make my cards like tents mostly these days - they tend to fall over if you make them like a card you buy at the store... Mabye I should take that as a hint that I'm using to many embellishments?!?! Well I didn't on this card - only a few buttons... :-) Less was actually more this time even if I really can't believe it.

Here is the cutest image!! Love this little guy! I used Copics to color him....

Here are the buttons and the sentiment is written with stickers - says "congratulations"....

Have a happy and magical day - and also if you like, stop by a bit later as I have another card to show you then....

I'm adding my card to these challenges:

Copic Marker Europe - Card for a man

Can you dig it? Male birthday

Crafty Ribbons - One for the boys

Delightful Challenges - One for the boys

Cardmania - Lots of layers

Whoopsie Daisy Challenge - Punch it out!

Here comes the boys - Picture inspiration

DT SweScrapbook: Sponsored by Pappersbiten!

Some of the girls at SweScrapbook was sponsored by a swedish scrapbook store called Pappersbiten and we all got some material to create with. My material was very different and the papers were all i different colors and the decorations were not quite in the same colors as the papers - a true challenge for me who usually create with a matching colors... :-)

For today I have made a layout. The base is a white cardstock and I've used a couple of masks and distress pads to make the background. I then added some papers from YouDo (hearts) and Landstoken (green).

Here is a close up on the flowers. I layered them to get a more 3D effect and added a button in the midst. The heart is a sticker.

Here is a better picture of the gorgeous paper....

Here is another flower and a metal piece from Bo Bunny. The tag behing the photo is embossed with an embossing folder and rubbed with distress pads in green and brown.

Last picture - from the side...

Thank you for stopping by today! I wish you all a magical day!!
