Thank you fairy much!


OK, so I have 2 new favorite stamp companies - MFT and Lawn Fawn! This super adorable stamps is called "Fairy friends" and is not super new, it's been around for a while. But it's fairly new to me and I love it! I mean - who doesn't get a smile on their faces when looking at a scene lite this?! (though I got the cold shoulder from my 5yr-old, since she believes it's supposed to be a strawberry house - so I apparently used the wrong colors...!) :-)

I believe that everything I used on this card is from Lawn Fawn, except for the leafy branches on the left - those are dies from Sizzix/Tim Holtz. And the coloring was done with copic markers (of course!). I also used some glossy accents on the flowers and leaves, to sort of mimic water droplets, and the sun and the fairies got some sparkles from the Wink of Stella glitter pen.

Copic Markers used:
House: YR23-24-27, BV01-01-04, V28, E13-15-18, YG03, G94
Fairies: dresses: BV01-01-04, V28
wings: B00, B21, BG11, BV01
hair: C3-5-7, E13-15-18, YR23-24-27
Flowers: BV01-01-04, V28, YR23-24-27, YG93-95-97

Have a great day, everyone, and thank you fairy much for visiting my blog! ;-)

Birthday Shakercard feat. Adorable Elephants from MFT


Hi everyone! Today's card is a shaker card with an adorable little elephant from a stampset from My favorite things called exactly that: Adorable Elephants. This stampset has been on the market for some time now, but it's new to me and I can't get enough of these little creatures...! 
This little fellow was colored using Copic Markers:
Body - N0, N2, N4 and N6
Ears -  R00, R11, R20 and RV21  
The dots on the cheeks were made using a white Sakura gel pen.
                                                              
To create the background, I used an older background stamp from Hero Arts and stamped it with Distress Oxide ink in the color "iced spruce".
The shaker part was inked with the same ink and I tried to achieve a somewhat ombré background, using the emboss resist technique with some of the butterflies from the stampset. The frame was diecut with the new stitched rectangle frame dies from Lawn Fawn.

The black enamel dots were made with Nuvo Crystal Drops - gloss Ebony black.


The sentiment "Grattis" means "Congratulations" in Swedish and was diecut with a die from Rox Stamps. I inked it up with some Distress Inks: "Abandoned Coral" and "Festive Berries". The heart balloon was also colored using those inks.

And to make it a shaker card - I popped the frame up in some foam adhesive and also adhered some transparent plastic to make the window. The confetti is a mixture of sequins from different suppliers, f.x. YouDo.




The inside was also made with the Lawn Fawn frame rectangle dies and inked with some Iced Spruce Distress Ink. The stamps are from the same stampset, mentioned above.


And the backside uses my sticker with contact info, along with a cute stamp from Gummiapan: "limited edition" - (which it is)!


To personalize the card before sending it - I simple added the recipient's name using alpha stickers from Tim Holtz. 

I hoped you enjoyed this card, and if you did - please leave a comment! Thank you for visiting and see you soon! Love //Anna

#magicalsunshine


My cat, Emma, hasn't been featured very much in my scrapbooking since my daughter was born 3 yrs ago. So when this month's theme was presented as "magic" - I knew exactly what I needed to do. 

I got to play with some masks and distress inks to create the background, which made me very happy. For a long time I thought I didn't like getting messy with colors, gesso and other materials, but I have to admit that I was wrong. I do like it. A lot.

The masks I used are all from Tim Holtz and I used tumbled glass, ices spruce and wild honey from the distress ink family.

The frame is actually a PL-card from Heidi Swapp, as well as the golden card with rays and the small, mint, heart card.

All stamps are from this month's story stamps by Ali Edwards.



I made this layout on one of our scrap meetings in Limhamn, Sweden. I'm actually pretty satisfied that I finished the layout that evening, 'cause usually on these get-togethers there's a lot of talking and laughing and not a lot of scrapbooking. On my part, that is.

I'm back!!


I haven't blogged for over a year - but now my mojo's back and I've started creating again. Finally!!

So to start this spring season of scrapbooking off, I've created a layout with delicious spring colors using last month's story stamps from Ali Edwards, themed AM/PM. I chose to tell a story about my mornings and my favorite meal of the day: breakfast.

I've used quite a lot of the stamps included in the kit. I embossed and hand cut "good" and "morning" to create the title. Then I used some of the smaller stamps to create a frame around the photo.

Other embellishments are stars from Studio Calico, which I have added dashed lines to. As photo mat and part of the frame I've used some adhesive sheets from Lifestyle Crafts called "Shape 'n Tape". As part of the photo mat I've also used some vellum to soften up a little bit.
The golden "A" is a letter sticker from American Crafts, which I have embossed some embossing enamel upon.

Here are some close-ups:




Have a great week and a Happy Easter - and I'll see you soon!
Love //A

Indiansommar?


Nej, bilden är tagen mitt i sommaren så Indiansommar är det inte. Men med chevron-washi som ram och fjädrar som pynt så fick jag lite indiankänsla. Eller vad säger ni?
Bokstavsstämplarna är från Ali Edwards/Technique Tuesday och själva upplägget på layouten var en del i hennes online kurs "Hello Story" som gick i somras/höstas. 
Detta är en sådan där LO som har legat till sig lite. Ni vet - en sådan där som man ser framför sig hur man vill att den ska se ut men inte riktigt får till det?! Nu är det i alla fall klar. Och jag lämnar den där. Nöjd.



Härlig blandning av riktiga och stämplade fjädrar!


Brad från Theresa Collins och stickers från Simple Stories/Snap.

Cirkus Jensen!




Den här LO'n gjorde jag på scrapmaran vi hade i januari. Jag blev sådär nöjd, så nästa dag rev jag isönder i stort sett allt och började om. Gör om och gör rätt, typ... Resultat: mycket bättre och nöjd Anna!! :-)

Bakgrunden är Gesso som jag använt med Tim Holtz's masker. Lite distress paint har jag också använt. 
Alla mönstrade papper - inkl basen - är från MME's Cut & Paste.
