Furry Friend

Hello Crafty Friends,

Today I did a little stamping after being to the hairdresser.
Needed a long overdue cut after the hospital and all.
I even had it colored, feels so much better.

Ok, back to stamping.
I used the clear stampset More Furry Friends designed by
Donna Grey and available at Funky Fossil Designs

I also used the stencil Party Balloons and
Small Print2 for the sentiment.

Yhe dog and bones are colored with Stampin´Blends.

Hekko Crafty Friends,

In my previous post I told you I have been
doing some crochet. I have been making some
baby blankets for two of the girls who are working
in the home of my mom. Both are pregnant with boys.

I actually bought a package with a pattern, but then when 
I started to make it, I did not like it at all. It was only the 
off white and the yellow. So I bought some more cotton
and just made up my own pattern.

You see the stitches are the same as in a granny square.
Then when i noticed the combination of color, it looked
like the beach, so i found these appliqe patterns for
the boat and the fishes on pinterest.


The arigumi duch template can be found here:


II wrapped it all together and gave it 
to the first one who is due soon.

So I had lots of cotton left and started to make some
granny squares for a new blanket. i just love the combo 
of colors.

Of course I had to add a rattle to this blanket too.

I found the pattern of this cute penguin:

It is the pattern of a teether, but I did not like the
wooden ring, so I only made the penguin to play with.

And this is the start of a new project. It is going to be a 
large blanket of 64 squares in these colors. It will be one for
my own couch!. I have already 9 squares, So the beginning
is there.

Thank you for looking,
stay safe and keep crafting!

Back again!

 Hello my Crafty Friends,

You must have noticed I haven´t been blogging 

much these past few weeks.

Well, I had an operation and I am healing now, 

stamping was just to much.

Instead I have done some crochet 

and did some watercoloring.

I love my Funky Fossil Design stamps and

 one of the designers also gives

online classes: Ann Corbiere Scott

So by watching and playing along, I opened a new art journal and

this is my first page:

The background circles are painted with watercolor
and inspired by Wasilly Kandinsky.

The sentiment is printed with the computer,
but the brush and the paint tubes are clear stamps
designed by Ann Corbiere Scott: Artsy stamp set.

And here is a birthday card I did with 
a printable flower sheet by Ann.
It was supposed to be a tag, but I used
it for a 5 x 7 inch card.

Here the inside of the card with a
strip left over from the background paper 
of the front of the card.

Here a close up of the flowers and the sentiment.
All is colored with watercolor paint.

I will try blogging a little more,
but I am still recovering, so it won't be every day.

Thank you for looking today,
stay safe and keep crafting.

Egg Hunt

Hello Crafty Friends!

Have you had a lovely Easter Sunday?
Hunting for eggs? Or for bargains??

I share with you another card made with
which are on sale for 20% until
midnight of April 5th.

For this card I used:
stamp set: Let's Party.

To make the eggs in the jar, I made my own stencil with this egg
paper punch trough a post it note and used the cutouts to cover
eggs if needed.

For the grass border I used the scenic border stencil.
With the inside of the mason jar I covered the pot
as not to get any grass on it.

The bunny from the Let's Party stamp set is stamped
and embossed with black embossing powder and colored
with stamping blend's markers. The punched out eggs
are from some left over Spring Geometric design paper.

Thank you for looking,
