Fall is here - make pies

Hi everyone!

Summer is turning in and fall is just around the corner. But I'm fond of fall, the air is crisp and everything changes colours. I'll even go so far that I'll admit that I like the rain... That will be when I can be on the inside snuggled up under a blanket with a hot cup of tea. Not when I'm about to get to work and I'll be soaked for hours...

However, I'm sure you're here for some inspiration not my rambling:)
Here is my DT-project for The Rubber Buggy!

Products used from the store:
12x12 paper pad, Graphic 45, place in time
Sticker sheet, Graphic 45, place in time
Chipboard 2, Graphic 45, place in time
Grossgrain/satin ribbon
Cling rubber stamp set #3, Graphic 45, French country

Thanks for visiting!

Sketch challenge at Anyone for Anya

Hi everyone!

Thank you for stopping by today. I'm showing you a card based on the sketch at Anyone for Anya.
 I used an envelop to get those lines.

I distressed the envelope with spurced ice and the drops are from LSG dark chocolate truffles spray.

See you all soon :)

Mythical ocean and treasure islands for The Rubber Buggy

Hi everyone!

I'm here with a LO from my latest vacation to Italy as my DT-project for The Rubber Buggy.

I really wanted to show the beautiful colours of the photos and Magnolia's sea breeze paper Mythical Ocean was so perfect as the colour is gorgeous and it has lots of tiny anchors all over the paper.

I've used Studio Calico's wellum embellishments from the Atlantic collection as well. If someone has any good advice on how to adhere these, please let me know - the adhesive I'm using is always showing through... The letters are from Tim Holtz wordplay - love that die:) Super good investment. I've taken water colour paper and sprayed it with LSG Azure sea Asters and Blue Hawaiian blue. Some of the letters are also accented with ice stickles. To create some texture I've used stickles to try it look like sand.

To top it of I placed a globe from my die cut swap with Cristy P, which I coloured in acrylic paint. I then splattered some drops of Heidi Swapp's teal colour shine to look like water drops and in the midst I added a cluster of flat backs to emphasis the look.

Product used from The Rubber Buggy:
12x12 Magnolia, sea breeze, mythical ocean paper
6x6 Graphic 45, French country, solids & pattern paper pad
Ice stickles, artic blue
Ice stickles, crystal
Ice stickles, gold
Prima say it in crystals

Thank you all for visiting!

Stempunk spell for The Rubber Buggy challenge

Hi everyone!

I'm here with a pre-Haloween card with Graphic 45 products.
The Steampunk spell paper is absolutely gorgeous and the colours is are to die for.

I layered pumkin paper on black cardstock and put it on foam dots on fanciful floral paper. To accent all the blue and red I used the yellow for the chipboard sheet and I stamped some gears on yellow from the solids. To top it of I tried to make my own tab, but I still need to practise :)

Products from the store:
Graphic 45 paper pad 8x8, steampunk spell
Graphic 45 paper pad 6x6, pattern & solids
Graphic 45 chipboard 1, steampunk spells
Bakers Twine, yellow

Thank you for visiting!

Embossing at Anyone for Anya

Hi everyone!

My contribution to our weekly challenge at Anyone for Anya.

This week we're embossing our projects. I thought I'd give my embossing powder a chance. I normally just dry emboss, since it's not so messy. But I forgot what wonderful effect you get with embossing powder.

Thank you for visiting!

Project life for The Rubber Buggy

Hi everyone!

Remember I showed you earlier how to embrace the project life style without having to spend your money on journaling and filler cards. (HERE)
Well, today I'll show you how I used those cards. I just did a spread of my weekend in London last October. It was my first visit and as you see I took snap shots of some tourist attractions - LOL!

I've also cut the small alphas from the design paper and stuck the tiny pieces to doublesided scoretape - works like a sticker after that.

Products used from the store:
Prima 6x6pad, almanac
Prima washi tape, divine
Prima washi tape, engraver
Tim Holtz tissue tape
Sticker sheets
Score tape 

I hope you liked it.
Thank you for visiting!

DT-post for Anyone for Anya

Hi everyone!

We have a new photo challenge at Anyone for Anya and this week it's strawberries for inspiration. I'm getting a craving just thinking about it.

So I used my CC design rubber stamp, but changed the colour scheme to pastel instead. She is coloured with my copics on smooth neenah paper and die cut with spellbinders lacey circles.
The background paper is from my favorite collection by Prima marketing Sunkiss. The frame and the distress is all in the paper already. The chipboad corner and the wooden ticket is also from Prima. The paper flowers and leaves are from I am roses. In the midst is a stick pin from Christy P from a swap at Creating a crafty life. There are also some goodies by MB's Treasurista from my time as a GDT-member.

Thank you for visiting!
