Happy Easter


Hope you're having a lovely weekend and are enjoying some chocolate. Today's card is very simple and I'm sitting on my hands to not add anything. I've had these glitter bunnies for ages and thought they would go with vivid green and yellow. The sentiment says Happy Easter in Swedish.

I used:
Exchangeable alphabet with Memento ink
Origami paper
EK Success corner adorner (it's super clever and can be used for borders too)

For the Princess

The Swedish Princess Lilian, who was born in Britain, has passed. She was a lovely Lady, I met her when I was young, she was so full of life and fun.

I tried to catch the warmth with the colours, yet the sadness of the occasion with the heavy black frame and the regal feel with Golden and Silver Perfect Pearls.

Items used:
Chocolate Baroque tree and sentiment stamps
Memories black ink
Distress inks
Sakura metallic, white and black pens

Only Words

No images, only words is what we want to see at Cupcake Craft Challenges this week. No time consuming colouring this week, but did I spend a lot time with the background?! It took me some tries to get it right.

We're being sponsored by Yours or Mine Paper Crafts this week, so grab your sentiments and ink 'em up.

Items used:
Tim Holtz sentiment and flower die
Nestie label and leaf dies
Distress inks and Perfect Pearls
Sakura pen for doodling

I really hope that you'll enjoy the theme, it could work for a wedding invitation. Have a wonderful week whatever you choose to create.

Love
Maarit

Some Bunny Loves You


This card has been haunting me, so I just had to make it. Lovely pastels and bunnies can't go wrong, but I'm still asking myself if they do look happy!? I'm not so sure they do. And does the card have enough of white space to be considered a CAS? And when will Spring take a leap to Stockholm? If I need a cuppa? Yup!!!

Oh, the colours are more vibrant than in IRL...I'll see if I can take a better pic.

Items used:
Cuttlebug alphabet die
QK bunny

Have a wonderful weekend friends!
