A birthday card & the STROMSVIGT "12 in '14 challenge for May

Hey there,

How's this year's NSD been for you?
Did you find time to scrap?

Unfortunately my day was different to what I had planned,
so I only created a card for a 50th birthday of a friend.
I used my beloved Silhouette Cameo & I know why I LOVE it.


And now I'm showing you what I did with all the punched out circles I showed on Instagram

The prompt Nina gives us this month for the "12 in '14 challenge" is to use WASHI.
I didn't want to use it the normal way, so i used a sheet of printer paper, washi tape & punched out many different sizes of circles (plus some from matching paper). I was inspired by the picture i used - a little branch overgrown with circle shaped lichen - and recreated a similar shape on the background paper with the circles.


When i had laid them all out on my background I thought that something was missing, so i put them all aside again and mixed some matching acrylic colors & splattered them on the background.


Then I glued everything down.


Added some enamel dots...

and some of my beloved STROMSVIGT stamps.

I really LOVE these prompts Nina gives us each month!
I hope you feel inspired, too, & if you create something,
hop over to Nina's blog & enter it for a chance to win something!

Have a great week!

"STROMSVIGT" NSD bloghop

Hey there,

welcome to the "STROMSVIGT" NSD bloghop!

For NSD 2014 we've each prepared a "Spring" project for you!

Here's mine:

A springy card, using different "STROMSVIGT" stampsets (Yes, the little flowers i "sprinkled" on the background are made with the asterisk-stamp from the "NEA-alpha"-set!) and a some other stuff to complete this card.


I tucked stamped & handcut leaves under the top layer and added a bit of green thread under them.


Love these orange sequins used as "flowers" (;


I hope you liked my little project. If you like you can hop over to my DT-colleague Magdalena and to Nina's blog to see their take on the "spring" theme.

I HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT NSD!
