A brilliant card

I just had to make another card for 

This time I used a brilliant theme!?!

Since I had the perfect text stamp from Gummiapan
I started from there and then I thought about that
a brilliant (or diamond) will create rainbow (spectrum)
from a sun beam. So I went for rainbow coloured brilliants. 

Here is a close up of the brilliants!

To create the rainbow coloured brilliants I started
with a white paper coloured with distress inks and
ran it through my Cuttlebug using a die from Gummiapan.
I used: Candied Apple, Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed,
Twisted Citron, Mermaid Lagoon and Seedless Preserves.

Hope you like it!

Transparent diamond card

Here is a diamond card that I have made for the

I wanted to get a transparent feeling with my card since the most
precious diamonds are the "whitest".

I cut out a diamond with Gummiapan's die and heat embossed
it with silver powder to get the shiny look.

Then I mounted it on a transparent plastic sheet on the card front.

To get something to pop on the card I added the text on
a banner embossed with the same silver powder.

Hope you like it!

CASology #254: HOUSE No 2

This is my second take on the fun challenge I found at

For this card I used one of Gummiapan's great 
house stamps and some trees and clouds.

I combined it with the Swedish text saying:
"Congrats on your new home!"

On this cards I mounted everything flat to create
sort of a one-layer card.

Hope you like this card as well!


CASology #254: HOUSE No 1

This week I just had to participate in the CASology challenge #254: HOUSE

Gummiapan has so great house dies and house stamps.

For my first entry I choose to use one of the small house dies
and a matching textstamp.

I stamped a word cloud behind my house dies and finished
it off with two small clouds.

There was a need to mount all punched parts on 3D cushions.

Hope you like it!

CASology #252 INSECT No2

I just had to make one more card for

This time I made a totally white butterfly with vellum wings:

I had to take the photo in the evening sunshine to make the embossed text shine.
I love the wording: Happy Everything!

Here is also a detailed photo of the butterfly itself and the layers of wings:
