About me

Mitt foto
I am a creative mother of two and grandmother of four wonderful kids. I like to create with the grandchildren so they learn to play without toys. Have always drew, painted and stitched. Like to reuse old things. Maybe a chair gets a new style or a few plates becomes a cookie dish. So create cards and paintings fit me. Lives in Sweden, Karlstad

Falling Hearts....





I use the image Pink Rose and Shimmer Chiffon from 
The East Wind and color her with Tombows. 
My interpretation of this sketch.
I used a plastic bubble and filled it with hearts,
 it feels like a good idea for a Mother's day card.
My only embellis are hearts and organza ribbon.

Have a lovely day or night

CAS....

Ohh my, I really think its hard to do CAS card.


Wanted to try those embossing folders and saw a CAS 
challenge over at Outlawz and have to try it!
The twist is to use shadows of grey.
So this is what I made, my ONLY embellis is a slug!!
I think it's really difficult and crawls in the fingers that want to bust more embellishments! :-)

Peace....

I'm going through a period where I like to do new things!! 
Take the plunge into something new and find new funny things to do.








 The base is a pink cardstock. I am using die cut Labels Fancy from Sizzix. 
Masked it with double sided adhesive tape and poured over lots of glitter in rainbow colors.
 All will be happy to see the rainbow and bursts into a smile.
 Mother Teresa said, "Peace begins with a smile," 
This is why it is good to have that on the sentiment. 
At the bottom, I have used a Tim Holtz Alterations calld Brackets On the edge.
All the edges have I shaded with Color Box Petal Point "Blossoms Pastels"
My embellis here are flower, ribbon, organza, Stickles and pearlmaker!

Inside the card have a use a paper from Landstoken calld "Vitage feeling/In my rose garden pink"
Here is my first time to use heat embossing on Acetate!!
I use a stamp set from Panduro and embossing powder from Inkido "Heather"
So easy and funny to do!!
The other stamp is from Leeza Gibbons "Whishes & Dreams"

We all need peace in our life´s one way or the other!!

Have a peaceful weekend
Hugs Kate
