Guardian Angel

I made a tag that I'm going to send to a dear friend of mine and I wanted to share it with you as well. I used an old Gorjuss girl image from when they were made by Sugar Nellie stamps. The stamp is called Guardian Angel and it fits so well with the sentiment by Bildmålarna. It says:

when our wings have trouble
remembering how to fly"

Up and away

Finally made another card.... it's been months! I have come to realize that I'm good at buying things but really crappy using them. It felt nice to finally have som time and actually create something!

I used Mama Elephants cute stamps on this one from the Up and away stamp set and the matching die set. Now why haven't I used matching dies before??? So much easier!

Well, here's the card. I hope you'll like it. :)

Summer Tags

Long time - no see. I always think that I will have more time to create and post but it never seems to work out for me. It's a little bit sad I think... But I finally had some time and some mojo to create and share some tags with you. I like to create tags- it's both fun and rather quick to make and you can vary the tags as much as you like.

I used Distress Inks (Evergreen Bough, Broken China, Squeezed Lemonade, Vintage Photo, Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet, Spiced Marmalade and Festive Berries), water and some Perfect Pearls Mist in Perfect Pearl to create the background. I also played around with some Texture Paste and a 6x6 template called Mini Chicken Wire Reverse from The Crafters Workshop. 

Papers: Manila Tag #8, Tim Holtz Tissue Paper
Stamps: Papillon by Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous, Impressions by Pink Paislee

Christmas card #1 2015

Alright, so... the first card that I've made in a while. The mojo just haven't been there but it's hopefully back now. :) I rediscovered one of the first stamps that I bought when I started crafting back in 2007. I believe the stamp is called Friendship warms the heart and it's by Rachelle Anne Miller for Ladybug and Friends. I find this image simply adorable and I really like the saying as well.

This is actually the first time that I've tried stamping masking paper and the first time that I've used Distress colours to make a background. I think it turned out quite nice.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
- Cute Card Thursday, challenge #399: Birds/Animals
- Papertake Weekly Challenges: Christmas Critters

Papers: Kraft cardstock, patterned paper "Scandinavian Winter" by Studio Line
Stamp: Friendship warms the heart Rachelle Ann Miller for Ladybug and friends
