Celebrate every day


Hope you're well and if not, lots of thoughts your way. We're approaching the winter darkness fast here in the Northern Hemisphere and I'm all in for celebrating something every day; giving thanks that I have a home, food every day, fresh water to drink and family and friends. My grandfather taught it to me when I was a child.

Addicted to Stamps: Make your mark
Less Is More: Celebrate

Materials used:
Bazzill hammered card stock, used some tape to strip of thin layers of it to create some extra texture.
Masked a panel and colured it with layers of Distress inks.
Free stamp from the Craft Stamper magazine, I cut out the tiny hearts, stamped with black ink. Then with embossing ink and heat embossed with fine clear powder.
ART-C feather stamps and dies on those smaller snippets in my scrap heap.
Distress ink and Sakura pens to colour the feathers, 3 D squares to layer the cut outs.



Something to listen at this beautiful day!


Last but not least, a monster to Addicted to CAS, if it's ok with a large cut out, a wooden Monster from Argentina on DQWV paper.

Thank you for visiting, it's much appreciated!

Love and hugs

Guardian Angel


Howdy, we're in full Autumnal colours in Stockholm. My brisk morning walk was a bit nippy so here I am with yet another card for Christmas. This time with Penny Black stamps, Stickles, Liquid Pearls and muted watercolours.

Challenges:
Addicted to CAS: Watercolour
CASology: Support (angels)
Less is More: One Layer and Dream theme


 Isn't she gorgeous with her 14th century trumpet?! She would have lit up any dreary and ill-lit Medieval castle, a mere dream. I've been reading a lot of historical novels lately, hence the Medieval touch today.

Thank you for visiting, it's much appreciated! I'll pay you a visit later today and tomorrow, there's a carrot cake and apple sauce to made.

Love and hugs
Maarit
