Smiles across the miles

Hello everyone! One card today which I promised to show you:) Maybe you have already seen this one, in the Whimsy Inspirations Magazine (http://issuu.com/whimsystamps/docs/issue1 ).  In this card I have used so lovely stamp from Whimsy Stamps called Fairy Daydreams:) Sentiments are also from Whimsy Stamps Everyday Mini Postage Stamps.

Moikka! Vielä tämä yksi kortti näytille. Luultavasti olette kuitenkin nähneet jo tämän jos olette vilaisseet Whimsyn lehteä:)) Tässä kortissa käytin Whimsy Stampsin Crissyn kokoelman leimasinta Fairy Daydreams. Tekstileimasimet ovat myös Whimsyltä:)

Coloured with Distress Inks.. Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, Kort&Godt and Prima, most of them painted...surprise or not:)) A little bit gauze, crackle paint and white paint. Beautiful frame around the sentiment is from Prima. Now I`m wishing you a wonderful weekend and midsummer, maybe I will update my blog on the next week:))

Thanks for visiting here

Väritetty Distressin musteilla..Kukat WOC, Kort&Godt ja Prima, suurin osa noista tietenkin fiksattu joko valkoisella akryylimaalilla tai ihan vaan spraymaalilla:)
 Vähän harsoa, krakleerausmaalia ja valkoista maalia. Kehys toisen tekstin ympärillä on Priman tuollainen die cut kuvio:)) Tässäpä tämä lyhykäisyydessään. Ei muuta kuin oikein mukavaa viikonloppua ja juhannusta kaikille tasapuolisesti:)) Seuraavan kerran laitankin tänne blogiin jotain ehkä ensiviikolla, on sen verran ahkerasti tullut nyt päivitettyä:))

Kiitos kun piipahdit täällä:)

Dt Cute Card Thursday- Challenge #170 Sketch

Hello again, how are you? I`m fine and I`m so happy, we are here at our cottage again and tomorrow it´s Midsummer:)) There is so silent, no sounds of city!! And again it`s evening until I have time to write...actually I really have time but I have only enjoyed this time to being here:)

But...today it`s Thursday and time to new Cute Card Thursday with the sketch theme:)) I was asked to make confirmation card so I used this sketch for it:)) And here it is:))

 I have used the stamp from Whiff of Joy:) I like this really much because it is so suitable for the many purpose:) One paper I`ve used is from the same Tim Holtz paper pad than I used in my previous pirate card:) Also a few Tim Holtz`s tickets, wooden buttons and gauze which I have coloured with selfmade mist Walnut Stain. I don`t have used sentiments for a while because I don`t have suitable or beautiful Finnish language. But I think it doesn`t always need any or what you think? Oh, I almost forgot the corners..they are die cuts painted with crackle paint Picket Fence and then I have this lovely cross charm and ofcourse...white paint as usually:) Here was all at this time and I hope you liked:) Tomorrow I will have one another card and then I will wish you a wonderful weekend and Midsummer:)

Thanks for visiting here:)

Dt ABC Challenge- W is for Wish

Hi, what a shining day!! It`s so so warm but it`s fine and I like because here in Finland we have a quite short summer...

I don`t have made for a while 3d cards until now. I have so many lovely images and this fairy is one of them. And it´s really suitable because we have a new ABC challenge today with the theme W is for Wish. So we want to see something fairytale or just a wish for birthdays etc. from your creation:))

 Moi;) Kylläpä on ollut niin ihana ja lämmin päivä, vaan onhan se edelleenkin...Kyllä on mukavaa kun ei tämä kesä niin kauan kestä:))

En ole "herran vuosiin" tehnyt 3d kortteja,muistaakseni..Mulla on kyllä jemmassa joitain ihania kuvia niin kuin tämä keijukin. Taisin varmuuden vuoksi tilata ihan useamman arkin kun olivat niin kauniita:)) Tänään onkin taas uusi ABC haaste ja teemalla W is for Wish eli voi olla jotain keijujuttua tai syntymäpäivätoivotus yms...
Ja tässä siis mun kortti

It was absolutely so so difficult to take a photo about this card:)) The flashlight reflected always the image so I had to take it this way:))

We have a fab sponsor at this time Lili of the Valley whom are offering 10£ gift voucher for the winner:))

Kyllä oli muuten vaikea kuvattava tämä kortti! En ole mikään ekspertti ja sutaisen kuvan aina nopeesti, mutta tätä piti kyllä käännellä ja väännellä!! Salamavalo heijasti nimittäin niin inhottavasti tuosta kuvasta joten piti kuvata näin vinossa:))

Sponsorina tässä haasteessa on Lili of the Valley joka tarjoaa voittajalle 10 £:n lahjakortin puotiinsa:)

Dt Deep Ocean Challenge #1- Anything Goes

Finally it`s open, the new Deep Ocean Challenge with the theme Anything Goes. The Design team have used sea images for our first challenge:)) I have used this lovely stamp from Sweet Pea Stamps. Maybe you have seen the card made by this stamp here in my blog before, it was only blue...at this time I wanted to make lilac:))

The papers are from Prima, lilac and yellow. Actually I don`t like this colour really much so I painted a lot of white:)) Maybe you are wondering why I made this if I don`t like....we are at our cottage and I don`t have so much supplies with me, that`s why:)

Then I have a lot of painted flowers, gauze, lace and etc.. the same as usually. 

We have a prize from our sponsor Quixotic Paperie so I hope you can join us:))

Have a wonderful evening and thanks for looking

A Special card for the graduated:)

Today I want to show you a one special card for the graduated:) I was asked to make some kind of card for the boy who just was finished his studies about plumber. I was thinking a while and then I made this card which is just perfect to him:))

Moikka, näytillä tämä yksi kortti jonka tein valmistuneelle:) Minua pyydettiin tekemään jonkinlainen kortti pojalle joka valmistuu lvi-asentajaksi. Vähän aikaa mietin millaisen tekisin ja sitten tekaisin tämän joka on just passeli ja tilaaja oli tyytyväinen lopputulokseen.

Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful day

Dt Cute Card Thursday- Embellish it!!

And once again I`m a little bit late about this card:D In the matter of fact....I was sleeping!!! It`s really wonderful if you can sometimes sleep your sleep depts off!!! I did it now:D

But now to my card...it`s once again Thursday and it`s meaning new Cute Card Thursday Challenge with the theme Embellish it!! So you have to embellish somehow your main image. 
I have used in my image this graduation cap and some glitter glue silver and picket fence:) 

Moi, ja taas vähän myöhässä postauksesta..Kehtaanko edes sanoa että miksi...minä nukuin tosi pitkään!!! Aika harvinaista mulle mutta on ihanaa saada joskus nukkua univelat pois:D

Mutta korttiin sitten taas...tänään taas uusi Cute Card Thursday haaste ja teema Embellish it eli koristele jotenkin leimakuva tai kuva jota käytät kortissasi. Minä laitoin tämän ylioppilashatun tytölle päähän ja lisäksi kimalleliimoja hopea ja picket fence.

The stamp I`ve used is beautiful Dancing Willow from Whiff of Joy. Coloured with Distresses as usually, mainly Spun Sugar (the dress). Flowers from Prima,Magnolia and Kort&Godt. A little bit lace, gauze and vintage seam binding ribbon etc....And this time I have embossed the few corners of image using the stamp of Stempelglede and embossing powder white.

So welcome to our challenge at this time and please take a little time to see what kind of creations my Dt friends have done:D
Sponsor is The Stamp Shoppe  who is kindly offering 15$ gift voucher for the winner:)

Leimasin on kaunis Whiff of Joyn Dancing Willow, väritetty Distresseillä, pääasiassa Spun Sugar;mekko. Kukat Priman, Magnolian ja Kort&Godt, vähän pitsiä, harsoa ja nauhaa jne....Embossasin leimakuvan kulmat tällä kertaa valkoisella jauheella ja käytin Stempelgleden leimasinta.

Käykäähän kurkkaamassa muiden tiimiläisten luomuksia ja tällä kertaa on taas The Stamp Shoppe sponsorina joka lahjoittaa 15$ lahjakortin voittajalle:)

Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful Thursday
