Christmas card factory :)

Oh my, I think I´ll really get a hard time sending these adorable girls away.... I´m really like them the way they look at me from my desk when I´m trying to get them a real nice background card.....
I realize the coloring isn´t quite perfect but I kind of like the shabby impression it makes-
The candy cane on card nr 1 is an image I found on the internet. Print it, color it and cut it and...voilá.... with some nice lace you can make this cute embellishment

On all of these Christmas cards I used the following papers: Kaiser Craft the "Dear Santa Collection"; Maja Design "Juletid"; Panduro "Country Christmas" line; Vibeke Spigseth "Snowdot" and of course some ordinary Bazill

On card nr 2 I tried to emboss the upper corner. The ornament stamp is from Panduro. With som embossing powder from Tim Holtz and my heatgun I think I achieve just what I was looking for.
The snowcrystal border is made with the Snowflake Border from EK. Nice huh...?

Stamps used on these cards: Marianne Design "Elines Vintage Christmas; Hänglar och Stänglar the cute girls and the berries; Norsk Stempelblad made the beautifull text stamps used inside the cards

On card nr 3 you can see the same ornament stamp as used on card nr 2 only here I used ordinary distress inkt.
The large flower comes from Petaloo and is called "Mulberry street". It comes in different colors and these white ones can be painted if you like or keep them simple nice and white . How nice is that!

And finaly, I´ll show you some close ups...

Thank you for dropping by and have a great weekend!!

First post on a new blog!!

Oh my... been away far too long!
Starting a new blog with a main focus on cards and card making. So what have I been up to for the past year? Not much actually.
Have been working quite a lot and spent much time @ work to have the possibility to take some time off to visit my parents.
My mother still is very ill due the pancreascancer. She went through the Wipple surgery followed by half a year of chemo. This was not enough to beat the cancer and in june this year the doctor told her that there isn´t anything left for them to help her but make her life as comfy as possible.
So...that´s what we are doing.
Anywayz.... all of a sudden there was the urge to start making cards again and here I am :)

I made these two cards with the stamp of Hänglar & Stänglar and I hope you like what you see ;)
The images are colored with Promarkers.

Next step is to get all my former links on place and soon I will be on the blogtrain :)
