You, love this - Prima Marketing

Hi there and happy new week! Today I'm sharing some cards I made recently for Prima Marketing. You can see the original blog post in the company blog here (link)

I was using St Patrick’s Day as my inspiration for these tropical cards. I incorporated green elements and mediums to them. I made the first layer using mint colored Impasto paint and then used the emerald colored Icing Paste for the stenciled, dimensional layer. I even managed to add a “gold coin” to the other tag! I made that using the “Stars and Moons” mould and gilded it with waxes.

Thank you for your visit! See you again tomorrow! 


Story Time - 7 Dots Studio

Sweet Sunday! Today I'm sharing my monthly project for 7 Dots Studio. When I started to think what to do, the current season spark my interest. While I write this, there’s still snow on the ground here in Finland, but the temperatures are raising and especially there’s more sunny days now! So, we are headed to spring! 

I thought the Garden Party collection fitted the spring theme wonderfully, when the nature bursts into life after the winter. As I’ve done ATCs using the beautiful flower prints on the “Dreamy” 12x12, I thought to do a layout this time. And when I saw this photo of my two girls reading, it all fell in place. I created a layout with a secret garden vibe, referring to the wonderful world of books and well, the book my same name, although I haven’t read that to the kids yet. 

I started the page by adding some patterned paper on top of the one from the Domestic Goddess, then added some masking tape as well and then brought the mediums in. To me adding those mediums to the mix makes all the difference. With them I can leave my own hand print to the papers. So, if you want to see how I made the layout, please see the video! 

I hope you enjoyed the video and find a spark of inspiration in it! If you haven’t scrapbooked the wonderful world of books yet, maybe that’s something you could try? 

Thank you for stopping by today! Ta ta for now!

Happiness is Homemade - Wow Embossing / Fab Scraps

Hello there! Here's another item I made using the FabScrap and Wow! Embossing Powder items. 

I started the canvas by making the stenciled pattern around the edge using Modeling Paste. While it was still wet, I sprinkled the embossing powder on top and then heated it. I also used the embossing powders to decorate and make some of the embellishments. I used a silicone moulds to make a multicolored heart and some silver buttons and coated the FabScrap chipboard shape with white powder. 

Thank you for stopping by today! Have a great start to the weekend!

Love you - Wow! Embossing Powder

Moikka! I made two little cards using Wow! Embossing Powders and FabScraps papers. This co-operation was happening while I still was in Wow's design team and I decided to share these and a canvas, which I also did. I'm sharing the canvas tomorrow. I used pastel colored powders inspired by the FabScrap papers I used. Both of the cards are made the same way, just one with pinks and one with blues. 

I added a couple strips of patterned paper to the background as well as a few washi tape strips. Then I added a stenciled layer on top using embossing powder. I also added a little stamped detail in there using a FabScrap stamp and another color of embossing powder. I chose yellow as it went perfectly to both of the cards. Then I cut some characters out of a patterned paper and layered them on top using foam dots. Lastly I backed the card with a solid piece of cardstock matching the colors used in the card. 

I hope you like these! They are simpler than the projects I usually do, but I thought they'd showcase the two brands well. The mixed media person in me sometimes craves for something clean and simple! For more detail pictures, please keep on scrolling down. 

Thank you for stopping by today!

With Love - Sizzix

Moikka! How are you on this Thursday? Fine, I hope! On today's post I have a little something I made using some of the new Sizzix dies. You can see the new selection from here (link) and the links to individual dies I used for this make are listed a bit further down. 

This time I thought to make a tag using a few Bigz dies and a couple Thinlits dies as well. I really like the "Large Stems" die as it has beautiful blooms and a handy leaf as well. And the "Tattered Butterflies" - wow! 

I used the Thinlits ones to make the background and the Bigz to make the decorations. I made a stencil using the "Cutout Blossoms" die in my last make (link) and I decided to use it in this tag as well. I added the dark brown ink to the background though it. On top I then added a piece made using the "Organic" die, cut out of aluminium foil. The focal point is made out of leaves and blooms cut with "Large Stems" die using Sizzix cardstock and some vellum butterflies using "Tattered Butterfly" die.

Thank you for stopping by today! Wishing you a sweet day!

Ateneum - A Flair for Buttons

Moikka! Today I'm sharing my second A Flair for Buttons creation for March! I decided to create another layout using some new papers I got while attending CreativeWorld. These beauties are from Piatek Trzynastego (link). I'm also so happy that I'm guesting for the brand during this year!

The topic of the layout is Ateneum, the Finnish National Gallery, or rather all the galleries we have visited. We've been taking the kids to galleries and exhibitions from an early age. Both my husband and me are nowadays owners of "museum card", with which you can visit a number of museums around Finland for a yearly fee. As usually kids are free, it's then really easy to visit different art museums and exhibitions together. The photo in the layout is taken in Ateneum, thus the title of the page.

I used five different flairs in the page. I chose them mostly because of the colors so that they matched the rich palette of the papers I used. There's the chevron one from Linen Chevron and the toadstool from the Animal Tea Party that echo the reds of the flowers. Then there's Encouraging Words 1 one to match the lovely blues and hint of blues are also found in the camera flair from Capture Life 2. The wood patterned one from Texture 2 some how fitted the rich tones - maybe because the tone and the look of the flair remind me of mahogany hardwood floor!

Thank you for your visit today! Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday!

Hello sweet bee - GDT Wow Embossing Powder

Hello! Today I'm sharing my other GDT project for Wow Embossing Powder (link). Totally different style than the first set of cards (link), but there is one common factor in them - the foils! Where as I made some really grungy cards in my previous GDT post, this time I made something as sweet as honey! 

This card had its inspiration in the spring and sun. I wanted to create a cheerful card with sunshine. For the sun part I created a big golden disc using golden Fab Foil. As the foil sticks to anything, well, sticky, I used double sided adhesive sheet this time. I added the sheet on top of some cardstock and then used a circular die to cut a "sun" out of it and then foiled it with gold.

To further have that sweet feeling, I used honey tones in the background. I embossed a honey comb styled pattern to the background using "Honey" powder and then added some watercolors in honey shades on top. I also chose to mount the card on top of orange cardstock and have that line the greeting as well. If you want to see how I created the card, please see the video below!

I'm wishing sweet spring time to you with this card! Thank you for stopping by today!
