Anna 55

Another aunt of mine celebrated her birthday this year, she turned 55! I made this card for her after spending some time on pinterest looking for inspiration!

Mothers day 2015

I made a card for my dear mother on mother’s day, we celebrate it a bit later than in the US and UK (still in May tho, I just forgot to update my blog a bit, hehe). I did some browsing on pinterest for inspiration and ended up with a combination of two cards. The text says “Well done mom”

Birthday box

Me and Jennie made a birthday card for Malin. Her birthday is in April but they threw a birthday moving in together party this weekend. We made one box each and put them together so they fall out on each other. I got to make the smaller inside box. Here’s all the different pages/sides!

Graduation card

Another card order from my mum, this time a graduation card. I love the stamped poem. In short it’s about the bumblebee and how it cant fly since it’s wings are to small, but the bumblebee says you can do anything you want.

Mother’s day card

Today we celebrate mother’s day here in Sweden so I made a card for my mother. I had a lot of fun playing with my new stencil from memory box; chic chevron. I used another stencil from a company I can’t remember for the chicken wire.
I decided to go for a color challenge and I found this week’s Color Q challenge #242: kiwi kiss, daffodil delight, melon mambo, tempting turquoise and white. The green ink pad I found was named kiwi but looks much more bright than I expected from that name. I do however like the color combination of all of these colors! Very happy and bright!

A colorful birthday card

I made another birthday card today, inspired by this week mojo monday challenge #299

I looked through my paper stash and found this icecream patterned paper from echo park which I’ve owned for years and never used. It was time!

I wanted the card to look like summer so I went for bright and happy colors, I could have used brighter/lighter colors on the gifts but I wanted it to bring out the blue and green colors from the background since the other details were pink, orange and yellow. I colored the flower with my dylusion spray london blue and added some pearl mist to lighten up the color a bit, and to add some shine of course! I might add some stickles to the stamp, I haven’t really decided yet.

The yellow ribbon is another thing that has been lying in my stash for ages, I’m not really a fan of yellow but I’m working on it on all levels, just got myself a yellow summer dress!
