Fun Birthday Card for WCMD 2014

Hi everyone

It has been a long time since I made a card just to have fun, but since yesterday was World Card Making Day (WCMD), I decided I would sit down and play with paper, stamps and ink =) I wanted to use a new stamp set from Paper Smooches that I bought recently, and ended up using that along with some other stamps sets and a few colorful inks for my card.




I stamped the monster from Paper Smooches' "Ghoulfriends" in "Rose Bud" Memento ink. I then stamped a gift from Paper Smooches' "Santa Paws" using "Mint Julep" ink by Hero Arts, and filled in the bow part of the image with the same ink. The last thing I stamped was a crown from Paper Smooches' "A Lillte Lovin" with "Dandelion" Memento ink and filled that in too.
Here in Norway, when children have their birthday they get a paper birthday crown to wear that day, which is why I added the crown for this birthday card =) The image piece was matted with a diecut scalloped piece, made using a Spellbiders die.

Happy Popsicle Card

Hi everyone

So, I haven't posted on this blog in a looooong time. The main reason is that I've gotten way into a fun new hobby - nail polish and nail art =) So, I was making some nail art for my nail polish blog, and since I loved how it turned out, I decided to take inspiration from that and make a card too:



I free hand cut the popsicle shape, used some circle dies for the white eyes, stamps for the black in the eyes, and a sentiment from Paper Smooches' "Sugar Rush" set =)

If you want to check out the post on my nail polish blog, where I show the nail art + a tutorial on how I made that, please go here. Oh, and here's a little sneak peek of that for you:
