Birthday girl


I guess that you all are busy with your Easter preparations. We are colouring Easter "letters" (the kids colour prints with chickens, egg etc) like crazy. Then we are going to fill these with candy and Isac will give them to his cousins. So we are busy, busy, busy...

Therefore there's only a short post from me today - showing you little Winter Susan. I think she's perfect - and actually works for Spring as well, since we still haev tons of snow here. We are seing spots of grass - but that's it. The snow is slowly, slowly melting. I therefore wanted to colour Susan in more Spring colours - to give me some hope - that Spring is going to be here soon.

Sentiment is a rub-on. DPs from stash. Pearls and flowers from SCACD of course ;-)

Hope you like her and make sure that you check Susana's store. She has tons of new goodies in - like:

* Viva Decor products - if you have not tried them - you def. need to. They are so fun to play with and the result is just beautiful.

* Zva Creative flowers, pearls and rhinestones.

* Basic Grey - New stunning DPs, ribbons and brads

* Copic - Multiliners (3 and 8 mm)

* Petaloo flowers - flowers and butterflies (make sure that you don't miss them)

* ScraPerfect Embellie Gellie

* ScraPerfect Perfect Printing Pouch

* Our Craft Lounge Stamps

Sketch challenge

It's the last March TIOT and this time Suzanne wanted us to use her fun sketch below.

I followed the sketch almost to the letter - but moved the three circles to the top instead - using flowers ;-). Inked up cute Little Aud - (hope you like your new haircolour sweetie). Coloured her with my copics - of course...

Added Basic Grey brads to the center of the flowers - in matching colours. Chalked the flowers with cocoa brown. (I hope you've seen the new Basic Grey DPs, ribbons and brads that Susana has in her store. They are a MUST HAVE ;-)

Of course I needed some extra bling - and isn't it fun that you can create your own pearls? Must be every girls dream... I used my Viva Decor pearl pens. Hope that you've seen them over at SCACD. Love, love, love them! My DT-sisters also have some tutorials on how to use them. You'll find the tutorials here - under the Product section tutorials.

Hope you like it and as always - looking fwd to read from you. I'm hoping that I will get more time to visit each and one of your blogs during Easter break.

Easter wishes

Happy Sunday to you all!

Are you ready for Easter? I'm not - but luckily it's only going to be 3 working days next week and then I will be able to prepare for Easter. I hope you've seen all the stunning projects by my sweet DT-sisters? I only wish I have had the time and chance to create a matching project to this little Easter card - but nope.......

So here's my little contribution to Easter - featuring cute Bunnie.

Coloured her with my copics. DPs from Basic Grey. Attached some cute mini-roses and pearls as well.

Hope you like her and make sure that you check what you need over at SCACD - so that you have all the fun to play with this Easter.

Sweet bundle of love - Too cute

Hej ladies!

It's getting closer to the weekend and I can tell you - I'm soo looking fwd to that. Why?
Well - I want more time to colour these new BnW cuties. I think they are so adorable all of them - so it's hard to choose - right? And for those of you that are hesitating just because they are clear stamps - I can only say - that you def. need to try for yourself. My personal experience is that they work perfectly. I received a crisp and clear image every time.

So with that said- over to my card for today - showing Bronzing Beauty. Isn't she a cutie?

Coloured her with my copics and tried to have a clean, but Summer-inspired layout. Therefore the flower DP and the big flower (made with ribbon and nesties) behind her. Sentiment from SU. Oh - and of course - some pearls for the "bling-effect" ;-)
Hope you like her and please - feel free to let us know if you have any questions regarding these new cuties.

Punches, punches, punches

Happy Monday to you all!
Before I tell you about my card for today - a HUGE thank you for all your sweet comments on my card for the BnW blog-hop! I will try to visit each and one of you to see what you are creating. So happy that you love these cuties as much as we do.
Today we have a new challenge over at RoP/BnW. Our sweet Rosette has asked us to use our punches. Well - I think I got carried away...*lol*. Used one of my corner punches, Martha Stewart punch, SU punches (the circles) and my flower punches.
DPs from Basic Grey. Pearls and ribbon from stash. Sentiment is a rub-on that I got from my supersweet and talented friend Tammi!
Love this new image - "Splashing Good Times" - so I wanted this card to be bright, colourful and fun.
Hope you like it and make sure you visit the rest of the DT ladies to see what they have been up to!

Spring, Cleaning and Summertime Blog-hop

The snow is slowly melting here in Sweden. The sun is getting warmer and brings us a lot of new energy. And with more energy - it's time to get on with the Spring cleaning - right?!

If you don't feel the energy right away - well join us for our Spring, Cleaning and Summertime Blog-hop! I am sure you all are going to be inspired and get enough energy to hop over to Belles'n Whistles to grab these cuties :-)

Here's the blog-hop order - just in case you get lost:

If you have arrived from my mega-talented DT-sister Rosette's blog - well - then you are on the right track. If not - then you might want to start from the beginning over at our BnW blog.

Also - we would love to hear your comments. We don't want anyone of you to miss the chance of winning the full set of this new release of BnW images. Make sure that you read the details on our BnW blog - for information on how to enter.

I have the honor to present little Belle Dusting Cuckoo. Inked her up with my Memento Rich Cocoa Ink and coloured her with my copics.

The reason why I used Rich Cocoa instead of Tuxedo black was that I wanted a softer and "older" style. The DPs, ribbon and flowers are sent to me from my sweet friend Tammi and they inspired me to go a little bit more vintage - nothing that you see that often from me :-) I hope you love her as much as I do. Elisabeth Bell has done it again! These new Belles'n Whistles stamps are sparkling clear! They are the finest of sparkling clear, genuine photopolymer stamps around, made in the US! I can only say - you are going to love your new sparkling clear Belles'n Whistles stamps!

Looking fwd to hear from you. Now you should pop over to my talented DT-sister Iris blog .

Bend it like Beckham


Well - I have not completely lost it... *lol*. Try it out Tuesday challenge this week is to be inspired by a movie and create a card using that inspiration.

It was easy for me to pick a movie - using one of the new and wonderful VC stamps for SCACD. So please meet Little Jennifer - now a movie star!

Coloured Jennifer with my copics and added a little pearl smooch on her t-shirt. DPs from Basic Grey and of course - I needed some roses on the card.
Added a ribbon from stash and attached a little flower charm. The sentiment is a rub-on.
Hope you like it and make sure that you check out what the rest of the DT has been up to!

The VC-blog hop is here!

Welcome to another release taking place over at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. Susana is really spoiling us all with her frequent releases - and all of them are always a MUST HAVE. Don't know how she does it, but she's one of a kind!

Before I tell you more about my card - I want to make sure that you don't get lost. So here's the blog-hop order:


The Heart and Hugs Spring collection is supercute - and of course - we all love the names of the stamps. I'm the last stop on your blog-hop - so I guess that many of you already have figured out why ..hihi.....

Yesterday I received the latest product from Loreal (I will test and let friends and people know what I think about it - since I'm a Buzzador. Well - the product is the Youth Code.

The weird thing is that it seems like it's already working! Yes - I'm already much younger - please take a look at the card below and see it with your own eyes! Say hello to Little Anki. I have never ever looked better - don't you agree ;-)

Hope you like her and the rest of the new VC images. If so - pop over to SCACD and make sure that you get your hands on them!

For those of you that have not completed the blog-hop or would like to start all over again - then you should visit my Norwegian DT sister - Aud's blog.

Kramis and looking fwd to hear what you think of the younger version of me :-)

Button fun for Try it out Tuesday

Hej ladies!

First of all - I really hope that you have not missed the opportunity to enter for Susana's extremly generous candy? You find all the details here.
Now off to my card. I coloured Latte with my copics.

Then I did not find any matching buttons in my stash- so what to do? Well - I decided to use my punches and create some matching buttons myself :-)

Added Smooch and 3d gloss - to get the extra dimension. Punched the holes with my Tim Holtz paper piercer. Tied scrapper's floss and there you have them - my homemade paper buttons ;-)

DP from Basic grey and the sentiment is a rub-on from my stash.

Hope you like it and want to play along with us. Also - make sure that you stay tuned for our blog hop on the 12th!

RoP/BnW Challenge

This weeks RoP/BnW challenge is hosted by our sweet Peta! This time she wants us to create a card/project using Easter/Pastel colours.

I have been longing for a very long time to colour Tania baking again. She's one of my favourite images from the BnW collection.

Coloured her with my copics and attached flowers, leaves, ribbon and pearls in matching colours. The colour of the roses are not showing correctly on the photo - since it was a little dark when I was able to take the picture. The sentiment is a rub-on.

Hope you would like to play with us and make sure that you visit the rest of the DT girls blogs.

Happy Monday!

Sunshine and apples

Am I longing for Sunshine? Well - those of you that have been reading my blog - know the answer - YES!!! It seems like Spring is far, far away from us here in Sweden - but at least we had a very sunny day yesterday - with blue skies. It was so nice to be able to feel the sun warming my face again.

Well - to warm you up I have coloured this wonderful BnW image - Sunshine and Apples. I just love the feeling I get from looking at this image. Don't you?

Here's a close up of Belle. Coloured the image with my copics (of course ;-)

Also - I hope you are getting ready for the new BnW release coming your way. I can't tell you anything yet - but I can assure you - they are ADORABLE and again - they are a MUST HAVE! So you better stay tuned :-)
