Giddy-up then! - a card

Giddy-up, giddy-up! It's Friday and a new process video has hit my Youtube channel. This time the video is really speedy and short, so you'll see in no time, how I made this card! You can see the video here (link) on my YouTube channel.

As you can see, I decided to do a card this time. The horse is actually from a winter themed set with snowflakes and ice crystals, but I think he goes nicely to other seasons, too. The sweater-styled pattern just makes him look knitted! I paired the horse with some die cut blooms this time, kind of making a meadow for him. 

Besides inks and stamps, I used some Posca markers here to add tiny finishing touches to the flowers. You can see the complete materials list below the next photo. 

Thank you for stopping by today! Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

Boxes of Happiness - a set of ATCs

What would qualify as your box of happiness? A box filled with crafting supplies? Or with books? Or perhaps cats? Or is just an empty box a box of happiness, as you can fill it with anything or use it otherwise, possessing endless possibilities? 

Quite a philosophical start to share this three card set of ATCs! I used Mimmilä stickers as my focal point but paired them with scraps from my paper stash and some Kuusade moon stickers. The bunch is free for swaps and grabs, in case you want one! 

Thank you for stopping by today! Wishing you a splendid Wednesday!

Lady Hara of the Green Leaf - PaperArtsy

May I introduce her ladyship Lady Hara of the Green Leaf to you? This hare art doll is my most recent creation for PaperArtsy. This time the blog topic was "Books and Journals". As you can see, I did the topic with a twist! 

Lady Hara is done using an old book in four ways. Can you spot all the places where the book is used? I guess the skirt is quite visible and obvious, as well as the little book she's holding, but the two others might be a bit harder to spot. The stomacher part of her dress is done using a book spine and the Medici styled ruff edging the neckline is a tape transfer of the book pages. 

If you want to read more about her and see the creative process, please head over to PaperArtsy blog. I've written a long post (link) about her there! Also, keep an eye on my Instagram (link) as I plan to share a couple of Reels from this make. 

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

Mildred, the ornithologist - an altered tin

Moikka moi! It's the first Friday of June and that means the first June video! I had planned for a canvas in this slot, but as you can it's something else. But it was actually inspired by a canvas... 

Back in May I did a tag shaped canvas with a professor (link). I whipped a story of him being an entomologist as the project has several bugs on it. So, come and meet his daughter, Mildred, who's an ornithologist! It seems that interest in biology runs in the family. 

If you want to know how I made this little secret garden in a tin, you can find the process video for it here (link) on my YouTube channel

Thank you for stopping by today! Wishing you a lovely day and weekend! 

PS. If you are up for it, I'm keeping a live tonight! Come and join me on YouTube!

Blue bouquet - a card

Heippa heippa! Another day and another card! This one actually says "Happy Mother's Day" in Finnish and I made it for my mother-in-law in May. But just by changing the sentiment, it would make a nice birthday or a greeting card! 

I used a Stampers Anonymous stamp set with some masking to make the bouquet. I used blue ink to stamp the florals and then watercolors to color them. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have a great day!

A Rose for You - YouTube live announcement

A lot of new things today - a new week, a new month and a new live announcement! 

Like I wrote last month, I decided to make a card live for this June one as well as there's parties throughout the summer. And well, you don't need a party send out a card, right? 

During the live I'll make a pair of cards. These were meant to be easy, no fuss things, but I ended up adding another element in there. That then adds an extra step for them, but they are still quite straight forward makes! 

Hope you can join me on Friday! You can join the live here (link), on my YouTube channel.

The Young Magician - an art journal spread

By moonlight, the young magician watching and waiting, doing her best to conceal herself, her luminous eyes alluring. 

Maybe not the best English, but it paints a picture, doesn't it? The first line is the journaling in this art journal spread I made with a process video. I pieced the journaling together from text stickers, wanting to make up a little story. 

I combined stickers and dies in this spread. I used stickers by Mimmilä, a Finnish online store, together with die cut elements. Like the magician herself, her head and brooch is from sticker sets, but her robes are made out of a die cut embellished piece of cardstock. If you wish to see how I made the spread, please head over to my YouTube to see the process video (link). I especially enjoyed making the background for the spread, inspired by her hair. 

Thank you for stopping by today! Wishing you a nice, crafty weekend!
