Happy Birthday Sis!


My sister decided to throw a Hawaiian/Luau themed birthday party, to remember the amazing holiday spent in Hawaii. So I wanted to make a Hawaai-ish birthday card for her. When I saw the Get outta Town stamp set by Paper Smooches, I just knew this was the one I wanted to use. I wanted it to be bright, sparkly, and fun so I had to make a shaker card!

Valentine´s Day Card #2



Today I have for you my second Valentine’s Day card. This time I decided to go for a bit more color 🙂 . I used the hearts die set from Memory Box and painted them with my Art Alchemy Metallique paints. The colors of the acrylic paints are very vivid and beautiful. I’m looking forward to trying them out more for some Mixed Media projects. With the Stitched Cloud Edges Frames, I created a light cloudy background with the distress inks Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass. After adhering the hearts on the card, I used some distress inks to create a strip for the bunny and the teddy bear to stand on.

Valentine’s day card 2017


Valentine’s day is around the corner so it’s time to make some nice Valentine cards! I used to buy Valentine cards all the time, and now it’s so cool to be able to make my own. 🙂

Looking through my stash, I found this Simon Says Stamp set – Sending Happy Thoughts I had not yet used. It’s a really great stamp set and there are so many possibilities to create cards for friends and family as well.   The thought that it might be a one of a kind design, is very appealing. Although many people might have the exact same stamp set, it’s very rare that you’re going to make the exact same design. Unless you are copying someone else. I love the process of creating and figuring out what to make, it’s so fun and relaxing. Sometimes I do look at other people’s card design, but mostly for inspiration and to learn and try techniques.

After thinking a while, I decided I wanted to make a shaker card, and with the shaker elements being mini envelopes.





  1. I stamped the smallest envelop from the set, on different patterned papers with Versafine onyx black ink. I also stamped it on plain white cardstock and stamped some hearts and colored them with my red Tombow pen.
  2. For the shaker window, I decided to go with a die from the stitched square scallop frames from MFT. I die cut a square on some grey and white cardstock, then used an embossing folder from Taylored Expressions – Dotted Lattice.
  3. With my Photo Sleeve Fuse Tool from We R Memory Keepers, I created a pocket for the mini envelopes.
  4. On a white card base, I used the sentiment Thinking of You from the same stamp set, along with 2 hearts. Stamped with Versafine onyx black and heat set with clear embossing powder. I used some glossy accents on the hearts from Ranger.

I’m entering this card for the Monday – Young At Heart and Wednesday – The Color of Love challenges on the Simon Says Stamp Blog.

Gold & Glitter


Today I have some shiny cards for you! I played around with some of my embossing folders and used gold, silver and black paper and glitter paper. I wanted to make some fancy and shiny cards for birthday celebrations. We all love and need a little sparkle! 🙂

The cards were very simple to make and required no coloring whatsoever. Most of the products I got from a local craft store, except the dies, sentiments, embossing powders and embossing folders.

The card I have today, is entered on the MFT Sketch Challenge 317 and Simon Says Stamp Challenge – Anything goes.

On a recent trip to Lyon, in France,  I managed to get a hold of the Photo Sleeve Fuse Tool from We R Memory Keepers. I was so excited to find it, and it had been a long time since I had made a shaker card. The good thing with the fuse tool is that you can basically use it on any type of plastic sleeve. But the downside is that it will not leave a lot of space for the actual shaking. Personally I don’t mind too much, as it’s still a cool tool and the shaker windows still look great!
