:: Cards with beautiful Prima supplies ::

Pyssloteket have a wide range of products from Prima! Guess who love's that ;) Me!!
My card today is a bit larger than I usually make. It´s about 12x22 cm. I used the papers called Rose Dreams and Stone Quartz. I used a edge punch from Martha Stewart to get my nice scalloped edge.
I used my sewing machine around all the edges and I also used a stencil from Craftres Workshop and Heavy Gesso from Prima. Behind all flowers and embellishments I have a black doilie from Doodlebug Design. You find doilies, flowers, papers and all mediums at Pyssloteket.

I love layers and textures on my work! Here I used the larger ones of Primas Art Stones. I colored them with Prima Color Bloom Storm Cloud. I also used some feathers I found on my desk and I die-cutted leafs with a die from Prima.

I´m so happy that soon Pyssloteket will have a lot of Chipboards! I love working with Chipboards! Here I painted the words with Prima Heavy Gesso. 

To get the flowers more melted in with the background I used both Color Bloom Spray and Gesso on them. I used beautiful flowers from Prima Rose Quartz collection called Rosa Verona and Thassos. I also made a much more clean and simple card with the same papers I only added a piece from Grateful Heart. I used a die from Cheery Lynn Design called Dutch Scallop Squares. The cute Fairy is a Chipboards from Wycinanka.

:: Easter ATC´s ::

Last weekend I was at a crop in Avesta. I alsomost never attend challenges at crops beacuse I´m such a slow scrapper. This time one of the challenges was to make 4-10 ATC´s and the theme was "a lot". You was to add as many stuff you could on your cards. That I couldn´t resist!

 I decided to make my cards in a Easter theme and I chosed a green, yellow and white color scheme.

 I made eight ATC´s and turned in four of them for the challenge. It was also a organized swap at the same time so I got four new cards for my four Easter cards.

 I have some older Easter papers left from my time as a designer with Inkido. They are really nice! I punched out details from some vintage pictures and added them to my bottle caps in silver. At the crop we got a goodiebag and I used a paper from Prima from that goodiebag.

I also used white feathers, cheesecloth, lace, twine, gold thread, word stickers, Stickles, flowers, caviar beads, rhinestones, glass half pearls, glitter and gold flitter. I think I managed to add a lot :)

:: Layout for Pysslotekets April challenge ::

We´re having a challenge at Pysslotekets Facebook group and I made a inspiration layout after my own sketch and color scheme. I always think it´s harder to create after my own sketches than others?

This time the colors made me leave the romantic flower style for a bit and work with lots of contrasts.
The photos are from Instagram and a day when Viggo, me and Molle played in the garden.
I started with a black cardstock. I used two different stencils from Tim Holtz called Striped and Splotches. For the stripes I used Gesso and for the Splotches I used Dylusion Paint Sqeezed Orange. Then I cut strips from Bo Bunny Life in Colors, Kaisercarft Hanami garden and Bo Bunny Petal Lane. I played a bit with a black and a white pen. I did some fussy cutting with the paper called Posies from Bo Bunny. I colored some parts of the flowers with a Copic pen. I painted my chipboards from Blue Fern Studios with the orange paint I used with the Stencil. Last I sprinkled Distress Paint Picket Fence and Dylusion Paint Sqeezed Orange over my page.

:: ATC`s - Purple Rain ::

I really love making ATC´s! Still :) This time I made a edition for Pyssloteket. We have a two weeks Distress Paint theme at our blog.

I really like all textures and layers you get when you create in this style.

I started with Distress Paint Shaded Lilac and Peacock Feathers. I painted my background randomly.
Then I used a Stencil with dots and used Prima Clear Gesso. Before the Gesso dried I sprinkled loose glitter over the dots.

You find really nice dies from Memory Box at Pyssloteket and I used two different. I used Loopy Rings and Fresh Foliage. Then I added lave, a bottle cap, glassbeads, roses and sewing thread. I also used my favorite detail on ATC´s and that is a word stickers. Here I used some Chit Chat stickers from Tim Holtz. I didn´t wanted my bottle cap to be that shiny so I painted them a bit with Distress Paint Peacock Feather. Last I sprinkled Distress paint Black Soot,

:: ATC swap Hänglar & Stänglar ::

I made this edition with ATC´s for a group swap with friendes. The theme was Hänglar and Stänglar. It´s a stamp brand that now is retired. I love my stamp collection I own from this brand!

I started with only stamping the head of this cutie. Then I colored all my nine heads with Copics.

For my background I used wrapping paper you get from the flowers shops when you buy flowers. This one had old photos and text all in black and white. I dripped and sprinkled green Acrylic Paint.

Then I layered lots of fun stuff as feathers, cheese cloth and lace.

From the same flower wrapping paper I made wings. I also added white flowers from Prima, glass beads from Panduro and lots of glitter.

:: ATC´s - Romantic Flutter ::

Today I have some pink and cute ATC´s to show you. The words on my cards are from 7 Dots Studio and the Fortune-teller collection.
I really like how they turned out! Hope you do too :)

I started with romantic patterned paper from Panduro. Then I added mesh lace and Cheese cloth and then even more lace. Then I added a pink feather and a die-cut in silver made from Tall Bamboo from Memory Box. You find dies from Memory Box at Pyssloteket!

I punched out Butterflies from a Blue Fern Studios paper. Then I glued them in a bottle cap and over the paper I added a plastic thing that I don´t know what it´s called in English? The pink flowers are from Prima and from the calendar collection. This flower is the January flower and called Carnation. In the middle of the pink flowers I used Rhinestones from Marianne Design White glass beads from Panduro and the others are finds from my drawers. 

I really like this romantic, sweet and almost enchanting look!

:: ATC´s - Edgar Allan Poe ::

I first made this ATC´s for a swap. Unfortunately I was so stressed out over them! One card took me six hours to make so I backed out from the swap. The theme was Allan Edgar Poe and the style vintage.

Finally I ended up with four different cards. 

I really like the words! I do not suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it /Allan Edgar Poe

On this card I used brown shades and metallic details. Envelopes from Pyssloteket and beads from Panduro.

Lots of layers! Die-cuts from Spellbinders, lace, paper from Bo Bunny and metallic lace from Tim Holtz. The sculls was a gift from my friend Anna and I really like them! 

The next card is almost the same besides different metallic lace and some more details from Spellbinders. And of course a different photo of Edgar.

:: Just Embrace Spring - Layout ::

I totally love this layout! I have worked with Prima Love Clippings and Prima Wild and Free. It´s DT work for Pyssloteket. 

This photo is so cute! My boy deep in the Lilac bushes and totally embrace spring!

Lots of layers! Flowers from Love Clippings and Wild and Free and also flairs from UmWow Studio. I also used black mini doilies from Doodlebug.

I build my page with lots of paper strips. Some with one edge run throw a Martha Stewart Edge punch called Doily Lace. I have used stamps from Darkroom Door and Prima. As usually I used my Archival Ink ink pad in Tuxedo Black. The embrace spring is printed on my computer and then I used one Copic Marker to get almost the same color as the word JUST. You find most of the supplies at Pyssloteket.

From one of the papers I cut out this word and then built the whole layout from that style.

I used Prima Gesso and different Mists to get my backgound as I wanted.

:: Shabby Chic and Vintage Easter ATC´s ::

Lots of photos today :) I made this ATC´s for a swap with friends. The theme was Easter and the technique challenge was shabby chic. I really liked this challenge and I also like my ATC´s!

I wanted really soft pastel colors with cute and soft embellishments.

I found some papers from Inkido with really pretty vintage images. I also used a pink paper with text on also from Inkido. Unfortunately Inkido has closed down and the papers are no longer aviable. I´m so glad that I still have some after being on their Designteam first back in 2009 and then 2013-2014.

Around the cute images I wrapped some gold twine.

All my cards are almost the same but the lace, flowers and bows varies a bit.

To get even more Easter feeling I used some fluffy feathers together with the flowers.

To get that shabby look I distressed all my edges with my Prima distress tool.

I added both glitter and Gesso on the edges and on some of the embellishments.

I found some light pink glass beads in a box and added them here and there.

To get other shapes in my flower cluster I used flower stems.

To get that romantic feeling I used white doilies and two layers of lace behind my images. I made nine cards with five diffrent images so some of them have the same image.
