PL2014: Uge 23+24


Det er noget værre noget med det her PL – jeg falder hele tiden bagud… Men jeg giver altså ikke op! Basta! Jeg har fået lavet uge 23 og 24, og de må deles om et spread, da der ikke var så mange billeder fra de to uger, at det ikke kunne lade sig gøre at presse dem ind på et enkelt spread.


I uge 23 fejrede vi Ks fødselsdag, men da spreadets citat skulle dække over begge ugerne blev det nødt til at fokusere på vejret – beklager K ;) Jeg bruger ikke så tit rød som tekstfarve i PL-sammenhæng, men i disse to uger gav det bare mening pga. flaget, min trøje, Finns shorts, jordbærene mm. Man må jo arbejde med det, man har.


Som skrevet havde vi voldsomt uvejr i uge 24 i NRW (ikke så meget hos os), så det måtte naturligvis fylde en del. Samtidig var det også i denne uge, at VM startede, og det var en vigtig begivenhed i vores hjem – vi elsker at se fodbold. Vi snakkede meget om, hvem der monstro nåede finalen, om vores adopterede land kunne gå distancen…

Videre! Videre! Videre!

Flower wreath with suspended greeting


On day 9 of Stretch your stamps 2 Julie Ebersole showed us how to do a really cool card: You build a wreath using flower stamps and once the wreath is stamped, you cut out the middle and suppend the greeting in the open inner part of the wreath. It is a really fun idea and such a cool project.


I love how – when the card is standing – you get the shadow of the greeting showing on the inside of the card. That is not something you often get on cards but it adds an extra dimension.


Because I liked the technique and the look of the resulting cards so much I did two similar cards just changing colours and accents. This pink version was actually the first card I did, not that it makes much difference ;)


While I decorated the orange version using half pearls I did this first card with stickles. I do like glitter but I didn’t think it was substantial enough and hence the half pearls on the 2nd card. For this first card I coloured the hello using the same ink I had used for the small flowers. I like that the colours match perfectly but the word became somewhat more delicate due to the paper having been soaked with ink.

Tulips from a graphic stamp

2014-08-13 07.47.33
On days 7 and 8 of Online Card Classes’ Stretch your stamps 2 we worked with graphic stamps and specifically Avery Elle’s Rounded Diamonds. I did do some of the cards from the class (will post later) but I also came up with my own idea for using the raindrop stamps from Rounded Diamonds.


I simply stamped the large teardrop three times rotating it slightly to achieve the tulip-like look of the flower. I then gave each flower bud a detail by stamping the smaller teardrop in a darker shade and finally I added a mat white “diamond” to each flower bud. In order to create the stems I stamped lines using a stamp that was made as the string for a balloon and then used the small teardrop to stamp leaves.
