Isabellas birthday card

June 5th it was Isabellas 17th birthday, and as usual I made her a card, this time at the very last minute, since I had been pretty busy the week up to her birthday. Because of the Christmas stocking I had made for her, I had to get my sewing machine fixed, and so now that it is working again, I wanted to try to use it for stiching a card. I think it turned out okay, and I might use it again. Here is the result:

Materials used:
Craft-o-clock - Morning Dreams II, 6x6 collection
Grey and white cardstock
Gittes Eget Design - Tillykke die
NHH Design - leaves
Flowers from WOC
Grey soft tulle

Christmas stocking

Well, it has been a while since my last post, but I have also been busy lately, so I have also been really bad at reading other peoples blogs.

I am happy to share with you that my creative new years resolutions part 1 is done ­čśü. I was able to finish the stocking for Isabella in time for her to get it for her birthday yesterday, so I am really happy about that, now I can get started on the next one...Nahhh, I think I am gonna wait a little bit before I do that, cause otherwise I will not be able to complete resolution number 2, the crochet blanket for Rebeccas bed.

But I am so happy that I finally finished this one, and Isabella had no clue, that I had been working on it, so she was very surprised and happy when she opened the present, it was totally worth all the work.

Playing with Distress Ink

For this card I was playing with my Distress Inks to see if I could blend them together in a nice way, I think it worked out okay, but I would like to get my hands on some Distress Oxides since it should be easier with them. I think the card turned out okay, so I will try to make in colors suitable for males as well.
Materials used:
White cardstock
Gittes Eget Design dies – Frame and Tillykke
Distress Inks – Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry and Candied Apple
Halfpearls from my stash
