Here's my entry to the Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember® Wednesday Challenge

These are the products I've used:

Spellbinders Label One
Memory Box Chloe Stem
Unity Stamp Company Insightful Meadows
Bazzill Canvas cardstock
Memento Rich Cocoa
Distress Ink Pad antique linen
Distress Ink Pad vintage photo

I have also used some fabric, ribbon and paper scraps, and a text stamp from Norsk Stempelblad.

Have a nice day! :)

Tag, you're it!

Here's a tag I've made for The Unity Company Tag challenge on Facebook.
You can find the group here: UNITY {show & tell}  :)

I have used the Dream with your heart kit. 

I've painted the girl and the flowers with Twinkling H2Os. The tag is colored with Distress ink pads. 

The heart is a chipboard button from Fancy Pants. I painted it with white gesso, and Twinkling H2Os. Before the paint was completely dry I dabbed some paper on it to remove some of the paint. 

I've also used som ribbons, lace and pearls.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a nice day!

Farm Fresh Friday challenge

Here's my entry for the Paper Piecing challenge over at The Greeting Farm blog.

I have used Hello Ian from The Greeting Farm. 
His hat is paper pieced. 
The papers are from the Rustic stack by DCWV. 
I have colored Ian with my Faber-Castell pencils. 
The tag is from QuicKutz, and the tiny hearts on the tag is from the Katie Skinni Mini alphabet, also by QuicKutz. 

I used the QK Diamond single die, and folded the diecuts in half over a piece of Scrappers floss, to make the banner.
The text is from Norsk Stempelblad.

The adorable border punch with hearts and scallops is from Søstrene Grene.

Thank you for stopping by! :)

Garden Variety Tuesday challenge

Here's a card I made for a sketch challenge over at The Greeting Farm blog. :)

I've used the super cute deer from the Forest Friends set from The Greeting Farm.

Just for fun, I coloured it with a gel pen with glitter, and used water to paint over the ink. I think it worked out very well! You don't always need expencive markers or paints to get a fun result! :)

The paper is from my Minds Eye, and the text stamp is from Norsk Stempelblad. The diecuts in the corners are made with an old Cuttlebug die.

(I couldn't get the colours right in the photo, but this is the best I could do. Just imagine it looks a little bit prettier.. ;) )

Thanks for stopping by! Have a nice weekend! :)
