Lost Coast Designs - New Stamps Showcase

LCD have a whole bunch of absolutely brilliant
new stamps, hop HERE to see.
The selection is awesome, from wicked cracked line to 
lovely vintage, and those background stamps and big beautiful flowers ...
LOVE them!

I made 2 cards using new (and one older) LCD stamps.
It looks like I'm missing summer, 
since I want to use warm colours..

For the first card I used big Doodle Flowers -stamp.

I used H2O colours and sea salt to create the paper where I stamped on.
Also added some Fran-tage embossing powder and lots of golden ribbon.

For the second card I used 3 stamps: Grunge Border 2", Doodle circles, Pear Trio

I used Inktense to colour pears and the sentiment tags are from LOTV.
Again, lots of golden ribbon - got a whole ball of it on sale.

I would like to enter to some challenges:
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - sketch (first card)
Incy Wincy - Tic, Tac, Toe (embossing, ribbon, flower - first card)

Apriksen ystävänpäivärinki, osa 3

Ystävänpäivärinki pyörähti yli puolenvälin tällä viikolla kun 
Eijalta saapui ihana sinisävyinen setti.

Kukkia, sinisiä papereita, aaltopahvia ja 
söpö lumiukko (tosin ruskealla värityksellä tuosta
voisi leipoa kyllä piparipojankin, :D )

Taidan tällä viikolla olla viimeinen valmista saanut,
Eijalla, Apriksella ja Sarilla näkyi jo lumiukot olevan 
kortti kodossaan.

Sain hommattua kauan mieluilemani blender kynän ColourSofteille,
ja sitäpä tähän testailin. Eijan valitsema paperi toimi todella hyvin ColourSoftien kanssa. Materiaalit tuli käytettyä oikeastaan kokonaan, paperisuirutkin, niistä napsuttelin noita "havuja" MS napsutteluvehkeellä.

Muutamaan haasteeseen osallistuisin:
Deep Ocean - Winter Wonderland
If you give a Crafter a cookie - photo inspiration
Sassy Studio - All the same
Fussy and Fancy - monochrome
Sketch Saturday - pick one of the past sketchies (233)
Crafty Hazelnuts - Christmas

Little bunny's cool spot

One of the things I like when doing these little ATC's is that I can use my scraps.
Just look around the table and pic bits and bobs ...
Don't know why, but it makes me happy to be able to use them too :=D

This little Oddball bunny has been on my table since X-mas holiday.
I meant to do something and then did something else.
That ever happens to you?

It's called sad bunny, but I think it looks happy.
It must be hot summer day in the forest and it has found a cool spot to lay down, lol

Apriksen ystävänpäivärinki, osa 2

Alkuviikosta postista tulla tupsahti ruskea kuori täynnänsä 
herkkuja Sarilta. Apriksen ystävänpäiväringin toinen  setti.
Aprikselta löytyy kuva materiaaleista, mutta siis: söpö Gorjuss 
tyttö, 3 kaksipuolista paperia leimakuva, kukkia, punainen
stanssattu paperi ja pari muutakin kaunista stanssattua kuviota.

Värittelin tytsyn Inktenseillä ja PrismaColoreilla, embossasin punaisen 
paperin ja napsuttelin isompia kukkia pienien kaveriksi.
Teksti löytyi jemmaparkista ja jotenkin tuntui hyvin tähän passaavan.

Ensiviikon ylläri tuleekin sitten Eijalta, ja sitten onkin viimoisena 
minun vuoro, kyllä menee aika nopsaan.

Apriksen ystävänpäivärinki

Näinpä, että Apris oli järkkäämässä ystävänpäivärinkiä.
Heti viestiä matkaan ja pääsin kuin pääsinkin mukaan
- ihanaa.

Sen verran on edellisestä "samat materiaalit" -ringistä aikaa,
että ihan totaalisesti unohdin materiaalit kuvata.

Noh, Apris, Sari ja/tai Eija varmaan muistaa...
Kuoresta löytyi ihanaa punaista glitterpaperia, punaista kartonkia,
2 eri kuviopaperia, 2 kuvaa, kukkia, nauhaa ja erilaisia sydämiä.

Ja tälläinen tuli minun vuoden 2016 ensimmäisestä 

Sydän on minusta aina ollut aika vaikea väritetättävä ja tässäkin
tuli tursattua monta kerrosta ja 2 eri kynälaatua (Inktenset ja Prismacolorit)... 
onneksi paperi oli todella laadukasta ja kesti minun
kynättämisen ja pensselöinnin. Teksti on tarra.

Muutamaan haasteeseen:
Pile it On - Your first Initial ( Sari -> sydän (=heart))
Sketchy Colours - Sketch
C.R.A.F.T. - recipe (one ribbon, 2 embellishments (flowers and hearts), 3 papers (embossed, glittering and one with the hearts), one image)
