"Rise and Shine" mixed media

Do you watch the Live with Prima videos? Well I do as often as I can, just love them! So the other day I see this one: Here with Jamie Dougherty and I just had to try it out!

And Here there is a video! But I didn´t get the end, I hope you like it :)

I don´t have any Bloom girl stamps so I draw one.
 I used "spiced marmalade" to make her like the sun. The book pages I added for more texture like clouds.
 And sense she is the sun the title is "Rise and Shine" , written, dymo and washi tape.

 Her crown is a round metal flower piece cut in half, the other half becomes her necklace.

I really happy with here and I´ll hope you like her and the video :)

Swing with me -card- *new video*

Happy Thursday to you!
Today´s card and Video is made with my newest paperpas: MME, Lost & Found ROSY 6*6. The papers are so pretty and there are both neutrals and allot of colors. The stamp is from Wee stamps (Bird swing) and is colored with distress markers; "weathered wood" & "Victorian velvet".

Roses are "spiced marmalade" (ink) and perfect pearl "Kiwi" and the leafs are a cut up metal flower.
 The oval metal is also cut up and both metal pieces are from Pyhobby. I just love the bookpage that is the index page hens the roman number.

I hope you like this card and the Video and I´ll hope to see you soon :)

Make It Easy! -new video-

As you all know I love making cards with allot of flowers and pearl, he more the better. But I know that not everyone like that, have that or even have time for that so today comes a card that is so easy to make, tops 5 min! (and HERE is the new video, explaining everything...)

Make It Easy with just left over papers and a stamp and just like that you have a really cute and finished card.
 In the back HERE you can see the other card from the same paper-sheet. I made both of this from 1 double sided 12*12.  And I still have a 6*5 piece left...
 So easy and jet so cute, why not try a flower or a cross now when all the confirmations is coming up.
 The paper pad I used have allot of cut-out and I took one for the inside. This you don´t need to do if you have a lighter cardstock as base (or a really good white pen ;) )
So even if you just have 5 min to make a card it still can be really good. The trick is to have a shape the you know and can work with. Give it a try and and I hope you like it :)

Bunny´s Birthday- card

Happy Easter to you all! Right now there is feathers everywhere here and mom is boiling eggs like crazy. So I´m sneaking away to right this post.

This week I got a package with amazing stamps one of them is this "Bunny´s Birthday" by Crissy Armstrong for Whimsy stamps. I was so excited to try it out I totally forgot to film it. But I did film when I put the card together :) So here is the card and the video is up: Here

The papers are from Panduro- Tilda- Country Escape

And yes, I used my distress markers and pumice stone to the bunny. That marker is amazing! So glad that I got that one. I did try to make more "fur" and I think it turned out really well.

I hope you like this card and the Video and I´ll see you later :)

Super Easy Card

Hello, all crafty people!
Making cards are fun but sometimes you´ll have to make them fast and them it´s not so fun. But if you only have 10 min to make a birthday card, don´t fear. The key is to have a simple template to follow. I made a quick video to show you just how easy it is to make: Here

On this card I used 1 sheet of cardstock (DCWV- mat stack) and 1 sheet patterned paper (basic grey- lucille) You can use any papers, the best is double-sided or from the same collection.
 Stamp- wild rose- Party presents . I used distress marker and you can see it Here
Another tip is to have ready images, when I don´t feel inspired I color stamps. This way I´ll always have ready images and it gets the inspiration going.

Don´t forget to check out the new videos and come back soon

The Magnolia Tilda is colored with distress marker and her dress was just going to be me testing the peacock feather but I liked it so much that I put her on the card. And yes I know this is a Christmas stamp but you all know how I feel about Christmas things...
