Handmade Greeting Cards



Hello everyone!

Over the years you give away many birthday cards, greeting cards or just cards. I usually create my own cards that I give away and therefore I thought that I can show you a selection of some of them. The two first cards that you can see are made in October, the rest of them are created some years ago more or less.

This is a homemade gift card for a visit at a café. I created this in mixed media and I just want to say that it was one of the most entertaining crafts I ever made. Mixed media will absolutely appear on my blog again. I used my big storage of scrapbooking paper and accessories for this project together with ink pencils in various sizes and ink stamps of different colors.




The shoe card is a thank you card painted in watercolor. I used watercolor paper, watercolors, a small watercolor brush and ink pens. The card base is from my scrapbooking supply.

The roses that pop out from the card and the cute little cake are maybe obviously birthday cards. Both cards are made with watercolors, my favorite type of color. I used 3-D paint or some type of special glue to get the pop effect.


I saw this type of card the first time on Pinterest and then I decided to make my own. I made them as birthday cards for two brothers in scrapbooking paper, hard colored paper. The little green beetle card it’s made with the same material.


In this collection, there is one thank you card and one birthday card. Both cards are created in watercolor and ink pencils. I like to use ink and watercolor to create this type of look in especially cards.


I hope you all had a nice time in this post.

I wish you all a good evening, night, morning or day wherever you may be on this earth.




Bedtime drawing and a sketchbook


Hi to you all!
Today I thought that I would upload something different to my recent posts, so that’s why you will see some of my latest drawings and doodles. It was just some days ago that I discovered drawing before bedtime or actually in bed, I just got the idea one evening when I didn’t feel like reading. So then I thought why can’t I just draw in bed? and so I gave it a try and I completely love it. I think I will call it bedtime drawing but of course there is probably more people than me that does this. For me this was almost like a revelation, to use my creativity and accomplish things at the same time as it helps me to fall asleep. I can absolutely recommend this as a stress relief before entering the world of dreams. So here is a sampel of my first bedtime drawings, not all of them are finished yet it is an ongoing process. The doodles are created with different sizes of ink pens.



Apart from drawing at a late hour I also do it whenever I can or have the urge for it. These drawings are from my Moleskin sketchbook. They were created some while ago but I thought that I could show you them anyway. The first one is a drawing from this summer and it’s created from a bridge with the view of the mainland. The second one is a fashion illustration I made when I wanted to improve my skills at drawing the human body and clothes. The last one was an idea I had that I would paint all the places I visited during a year and to add the key moments of those trips as illustrations, so this was one of the pages from this idea.

I hope you had a fun time in this blogpost and that I’ll see you in my next one soon.
Now I wish you all a god evening, night, day or morning wherever you may be one this earth.
