Monster god bedring

A few months ago Bertram injured his arm and I wanted to send him a little get-well-soon-card. I had just done a get-well-card for the Norwegian stamp magazine, Ett Trykk where I used Lawn Fawn’s Monster Mash and I liked the idea so much I used them again. I love the idea of wishing someone Monster much better health (works better in Danish than in English though). I heat embossed circles of various sizes on the black background just to give it some interest and then I build my scene on top of Neat and Tangled’s Sunburst stamp.

Since Bertram almost (but not entirely) broke his arm, I decided to have the little flying monster sport an almost broken arm. He is saying “Ouch! My arm” which is actually also a saying from Danish television’s most loved series, Matador.

The larger of the two monsters are then wishing that Bertram feels monster much better (again: just works so much better in Danish). Of course all three monsters were supplied with googly eyes – they just seem absolutely right for these cute monsters. For both of the speech bubbles I’ve used Papertrey Ink’s Bubble Talk Dies.

Graduation card


I got an order for a card for a young woman graduating the Danish equivalent of high school earlier this summer. Since the new graduates wear a cap in red, white and black those are the colours I chose for the card.


Since it is also a tradition to give roses to graduates, I decided to use the amazing Gardenia Blooms die from Neat & Tangled. While the flowers might not be roses I think they look enough like roses to work in this setting. I stamped the sentiment using Lawn Fawn Violet’s ABC which had the perfect height to fit in the space on the diecut piece.


As a way of personalizing the card, I added the date of graduation and the first letter of the young woman’s name to a tiny tag. It is a very subtle way to make the card match the occasion perfectly.

Gave-pingviner (Ett Trykk)

1. februar udkom årets første Ett Trykk, og jeg havde tre kort med i bladet. Til det ene kort har jeg brugt et af stemplerne fra Create a Smiles Penguin Party. Jeg stemplede pingvinen i en gaveæske to gange, farvelagde dem med farveblyanter, klippede dem forsigtigt ud og brugte dem derefter som fokus for mit kort. Siden jeg lavede dette kort (i december), har jeg fået fingrene i noget Gamsol, som man bruger til at udglatte farveblyanterne med, og det gør en ret stor forskel i farvelægningens udseende.

For at give pingvinerne noget at “sidde” på, udstansede og stemplede jeg en talebobbel med Neat & Tangleds A lot to Say og Time Warp. De sidste detaljer på kortet er nogle pailetter, en talebobbel med en hilsen, Glossy Accents på næbene og Enamel Accents på øjnene.

Watercolour Tiny Triangles

When I came across this card, I got inspired to work with watercolour and Neat & Tangled’s Tiny Triangles. I went with a completely different colour scheme using Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry and Peacock Feathers.

While I liked the idea of having sequins be the decoration I wanted mine to be more delicate. I went with transparent sequins and further decorated them with tiny blue half pearls.

Watercolour is such a fun thing to work with because it gives you a very elegant and somewhat random look. I am fairly sure I’ll be working more with watercolour in the future.
