Majestic deer.

X-mas KATZ

Have you ever looked at the image 
and right a way knew that you want to
use it in a "different" way...

Well, well, when I saw this set in Sin City Stamps,


I didn't see a cat with the toilet paper ...
I saw a cat


with a warm long scarf , X-mas hat came with the season, LOL.

I'd like to enter to some challenges:
Delicious Doodles - traditional X-mas colors

I also made another kitty, but I'm not too happy about coloring.
Black is a difficult color to color to me :(


And those TH papers are perfect with this fun cat, :=D

Joulukortit samoista materiaaleista by Apris, Armiidan ainekset

Niin se vain tämäkin hauskuus pyörähti loppuun. 
Viimeinen setti Apriksen, TiinuLiinun
Armiidan ja minun joulukottiringissä.

Armiida pisti tälläiset siniset ihanuudet meille tulemaan:


Ja tulihan niistä tehtyä, ensin lumiukkokortti


Sitten pukkikortti:


Sitten nappasin jäljellä olevista ringin aineksista materiaallit
ja tein lumiukkokortin:


Ja vieläpä olkipukkitagin:


Joten paljon sain aikaiseksi tässä ringissä,
lämmin kiitos kaikille ja erityiskiitos emännälle.

Jos on toinen rinki tulossaan jossain päin,
niin mielelläni lähden mukaan :)

Joulukortit samoista materiaaleista by Apris, TiinuLiinun materiaalit

Se on kolmas setti menossa Apriksen, TiinuLiinun
Armiidan ja minun joulukottiringissä. 
Nämä ihanuudet tulivat TiinuLiinulta:


Tuli suorastaan nostalginen olo, Mankuillahan tämän korttiharrastuksen
aikoinaan aloitin ja vieläkin niitä laatikollinen löytyy ... taitaa
vaan olla lähemmäks vuosi kun olen viimeksi käyttänyt.
Ja sen kyllä huomasin väritellessä, ei ole taito tallessa.
Ensimmäisen kuvan pilasin tyysin, oineksi toinen sentään "säästyi"


Materiaaleja jäin toisenkin kortin verran ja taidampa napata niihin
kuvan Armiidan kauniista setistä joka tulla tupsahti tänään.

TiinuLiinu: lämmin kiitos ja mielelläni jatkaisin minäkin
toisen ringin verran, just kerkiisi ennen joulua :)

Muutamaan haasteesee tällä kortilla:

Joulukortit samoista materiaaleista by Apris, omat materiaalit

joulukottiringissä oli minun vuoroni
tuikata kuoret postiin ja kun ne minulla tietenkin
jo olivat, ovat tuloksetkin jo näytettävissä, :)

Tälläiset materiaalit kasasin:


Ja joo, oisinko vähän innostunut ... enhän noita yhteen korttiin
saanut millään mahdutettua, mutta kun kaksi tein, 
niin jäljelle jäi vain pari paperisoiroa.


Tällä kortilla osallistun KK vintage haasteeseen
jossa aiheena "helmeilevää".

Ja toinen kortti näyttää tältä:


Kuviopaperit olivat kaksipuolisia, joten jännään kyllä,
miten muut rinkiläiset ne pyöräyttävät.


Treat for Dream in Darkness challenge

Soooo ... new month and new challenge at Dream in Darkness ...
Dark and cold season has arrived ...
And what would be better than log-fire and some chocolate??


White chocolate re-shaped with a Panduro's silicone mould, yammmmm.
And these treats are served on


a wooden cup I found from flea market (only 1€) and altered
it using black gesso, black paint, some Inka Golds, pearls, ribbons, skulls 
... you know pits and pieces that are on your crafting desk, LOL


I'd like to enter my altered bowl and candies to some challenges:

Joulukortit samoista materiaaleista by Apris, Apriksen materiaalit

Siis aivan ihanaa, 
pääsin piiiiiitkästä aikaa rinkeilemään
samat materiaalit rinkiin.

Emäntänä toimii Apris, jolta myös nämä ensimmäiset
lämpimän kauniit materiaalit saapuivat.


Aika hyvin sain käytettyä maateriaalit,
vaikka niitä olikin runsaasti.
Korttipohjaksi valkkasin kraftin, ajattelin,
että ruskea käy papereiden ja leimakuvien
 lämpimään värimaailmaan.


Kuvaa väritin vain hiukan Inktenseillä ja reunoihin sipaisin
Vintage Photo DI mustetta.

Apriksen ja minun lisäksi ringissä mukana
Seuraavaan korttiin onkin sitten minun materiaalit,
jotka vein tänään postiin, :=)

Itsy Bitsy Spiders...

My second Halloween card this year,
very CAS and fun to make.

Using my new spider stamp from Sin City Stamps, sentiment is from my old set of Tim Holtz stamps, vellum is cut using my old STAMPlorations die and the "webs" are made using my new dies.

And why am I telling what's old and what's new; well, because I want to join the Use your stuff "old and new" -challenge.
Also would like to join Come and Get it - AG, QKR Stampede - embossing, HLS AG with dies and Craft Stamper Magazine - AG with stamping

vähemmälle, olen käyttänyt valmiita kuvia.

CAS truck

When I saw the Less is More new
theme I knew I wanted to use my 
Deep Red truck stamp that I have had
a while but haven't used yet.

First idea was to use my DIY watercolor
cardbase's BUT the paper has so heavy 
texture, that this stamp didn't work with it at all...
So instead of coloring, I took my Memento 
Inks and glossy paper.


Sentiment says "Congratulations" in Finnish. 
Stamped with a mask on top of the truck.
And since it felt like it still needed something, 
I took a dark grey ProMarker and a spritser. 

I'd like to enter to some challenges:
Addicted to CAS - one layer
Less is More - Vehicle

And, well since I had my stamps and my inks "out"
I made some more, LOL


Background stamp is from Sin City.

and even more:


That was fun!
