City Crafter #351

Good morning!

It's time for a new challenge
at the City Crafter. 
 This week Marina is our host 
and she picked the theme:


Hygge is a Danish term for creating a cozy 
atmosphere and enjoying the simple things in life. 

Create a project that captures the spirit of Hygge, 
or take inspiration from the photo:

I am fan of scandinavian design.
Simplicity, white, wood... 
I just love it.
The sentiment I used is a perfect match
 with "enjoying the simple things in life":

The sentiment is from Papertrey.
I stamped a shelf, lamp and books
 using a new 
set from Stampin'Up:

If you hop over to our blog
you'll find the projects from 
 the other team members.

Thanks for stopping by 
enjoy your day!

Practice, practice, practice.......

Imagine my surprise and delight when my
 husband came home with a lovely gift.
He bought me a set of Gansai Tambi paints.
Yes I know; he's a keeper:)

Watercolouring is quite new to me.
Last year when I was in Liverpool Ros
offered me the chance to try them.
I fell in love:)

Watercolouring means a lot of practice and it's fun! 

I started my card with a background which I
stamped with Versamark and 
heatembossed it with white embosing powder.
I started painting with simple brush strokes
 and added a sentiment:

Subtle shades, squares and some stiched dies:

I am entering this card in the current
 challenge at the AAA cards challenge.
The theme is "watercolour"

Thanks for stopping by!

 By using your stitched dies or faux stitching.

One layer


It's the kind of weekend that I love the most:
nothing planned and lots of time
to create a few cards. 
Today I am sharing one of these cards.

Sometimes you need a quick and easy card
because you ran out of time. 
Shades of blue for a birthday boy.
The sentiment is from MFT 
and the balloon is from PTI:

Very CAS and easy to make:

Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely Sunday!

City Crafter #349

Good morning!

It's Tuesday and that means
a new challenge at the
Today Kirsty is our host
and she picked the theme:

"Old stuff, new look"


Take an old project and give it a new look.
 It could be a project that you 
made and wasn't happy about.
Or you could duplicate one of your old creations
 and add something to give it a new look.

Our Guest designer is Magic Flyer Boots.

To see more of her creations you can click HERE.

I made this card in 2015:

Back then I was pleased with this card.
It's CAS and I loved the colour combo.
Looking at this card right now I
 decided it needed a bit more white:)
And a sentiment in a modern font. 
But first...more white:

I used a stitiched die; it was one of the Christmas
 gifts from Ros. And I LOVE it.
The apple die is from Papertrey Ink.
A sentiment in a modern font 
and of course some twine.
Same get well wishes but a totally different card:
