Magic of travel

I love to travel and visit new places. I have lived in many countries and visited even more. When I first saw the Graphic 45 Come away with me - collection, I knew I had to make a selection of travel inspired cards. Here are the first two, and more is to come!

Fabulous me

Art Impressions challenge this week is about paper piecing. Another technique I had not tried before, I like colouring too much. But, as I have said before, the reason I like the challenges is because you have the motivation to try something you might not otherwise try. And maybe even like it!

I stamped the image on patterned papers for the balloon and her dress. I cut them out and attached to the image which I had stamped in normal white paper I use for stamping. Oh so simple, and so nice!

I think I might give the card to my husband being that he so quietly puts up with the ever growing piles of papercrafting materials in my crafts room :)

Valentine's day cards

Materials used: 

Stamp: Art Impressions Tina Set
Papers: Studio Light Paper Pad
Coloured with Distress markers 

I submit the card to Art Impressions challenge #176 

Thanks for popping by and please, do leave a comment!

Valentine's day preparations keep me busy. In Finland Valentine's day is called "Friendship day", so lots of cards for friends too. Here some examples I've made with Pion Design papers.

The inspiration and quite frankly - the whole model for this card I got from Anne at Pion Design's blog today. Can't wait to get my hands on the gorgeous Easter Greetings collection  But for now, I made this card with papers from Vintage Wedding collection. The folded pocket card has a matching tag inside. Such a simple yet super cute idea! Will be making more of these.
