No I am not quite there yet, but we celebrated our team member and colleague Jim.  He spent a lot of years with the company, contributing with great knowledge, the best team spirit and so much technical experience that one cannot do anything else than thank him for being there. He has the biggest heart I have seen, a great colleague and friend!! I made him an American card (a few states went missing in the process), the card was inspired by this card by Shari Caroll, loved the coloring of the die cuts and copied the technique of transferring it to a sheet of acetate. I did not use the best glue for the purpose, so I hope it holds together all the way back to Chicago.
I combined the Tim Holtz die with Winnie & Walter  celebrate die, Simon Says star die, parts of a many thanks die from Ellen Hutson, numbers is Emily alphabet (QK). Papers are from Maja Design and the chipboard from Gummiapan.






winnie_ellen mix challenge

Ellen Hutson & Winnie&Walter companies have joined together in a ‘Mix it up’ Challenge of August. How cool is that? And with great products already on hand, I am happy to join. Winnie & Walter has been one of my favorites from the start and lately I have also been able to order some stuff from Ellen Hutson’s as well, they have a great web shop with other brands as well.
For this card I used In bloom: Addie’s Garden from W&W and combined with the die Many Thanks by Julie Ebersole. I have resist embossed and masked the dahlia flower repeatedly, added some leafs and then colored in some sparkling nuances like dahlias are. I added some splatter and melted some white embossing enamel to create a bit more interest. I hope you liked it!!

teknik v32_2016

Dagens inlägg på SWE är en teknikutmaning att göra Clean And Simple (CAS) kort. Jag har liftat (inspirerats av) superduktiga Yoonsun Hur som är fantastiskt duktig på både färgläggning och kreativa ideer. Mitt kort är typiskt nog i fler lager, riktigt svårt att låta bli det!



Veckans utmaning på SWEbloggen var att lifta Hannahoj. Jag gillar hennes scrapstil skarpt och hennes kort hade dessutom hjärtan…..oemotståndligt!


Decided to join in on the Monday Challenge of Simon Says. They are celebrating a birthday and such days should of course be given some attention. Colored with Distress Inks, I used a text stamp from Tim Holtz and then two dies from Simon; CLUSTERED LEAVES Craft Die & Congratulations Wafer Die.  



W&W had since long time challenge on creating with Rainbow colors, I tried a few new techniques, but in the end created this CAS card with my W&W stuff. Last day of the challenge today, but I might continue to play with the colors and my W&Wstack. Stamp is from the ‘In bloom; Renee’s Leaves’ and the dies are both also from W&W. I used a variety of distress inks to stamp and for the photo mat.


Ett semesterprojekt fick jag till idag; Har lekt med olika tekniker, blaksat och skvätt och distressat på olika sätt. En av panelerna blev klar med små medel, halva utrustningen är kvar på annan ort , så man fick ta det som fanns🙂 Stämplar från Unity stamps (text & bakgrund)  och Hero arts. Färgerna till denna panelen är från Windsor & Newton.


Denna veckas teknikutmaning på SWEbloggen är hjärtan. Hur lätt är inte det för en nörd som jag?? Superlätt!! Detta blev mitt bidrag, embossat med embossingfolder, sedan även hjärtan i chipboard (Gummiapan), text die från winnie & walter, doily die från Magnolia.
