Addicted to CAS Challenge #102

This time the Addicted to CAS code word is:

I decided to make a ballon card where
one string forms the word GRATTIS which
is Congrats in Swedish.

Here is a close-up on the strings where one is stamped,
one forms a word and finally one is a real string.

Hope you feel the joy!

CASology CANDLE no2

Since I just love Candles I got so much
inspiration from the cue word CANDLE
for CASology week 226 that I also
made this circular card:

I put some glossy accent on the candlestick
to give it some dimension.



CASology CANDLE no1

Today I have created a card with a typical Swedish Candlestick.

This is my first entry for CASology week 226: CANDLE

God Jul & Gott Nytt År! means
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
in English.

I have these candlesticks that I have
inherited from an old relative that I just
need to take out every Christmas in
order to get in the right mood!

Hope you enjoy!

CASology week 225 no2

I got feeling so I made a second card on this week's challenge
at CASology which is SOFT.

For this card I made sort of a shaker card
but I filled up the windows with soft snow
and also changed the O into a snowman.

The snowman die is from Gummiapan.


CASology week 225: SOFT

This week the challenge at CASology is:


My take is a Santa's hat with extra fluff
on the white parts.

God Jul is Merry Christmas in Swedish.
I just love this font.

Bidrag till en Cybercrop

Jag hittade en Cybercrop hos Pyssloteket.

Mitt första bidrag var till en kort och tag utmaning
där de skulle matcha varandra.

Jag valde Gummiapans söta ängel Gittan i två storlekar:

Nästa utmaning var en Bingobricka där jag valde
raden: blå, CAS, Monokromt, figurstämpel.

När en pysselvän såg dessa korten föreslog hon att sätta
mustaschen på ängeln och då blev detta kortet till:

Texten passar ju bra till mig!

While creating my first card to
this cards also popped up in my head.

Normally this is not a CAS card but I still
think it is...
The busy area is quite small leaving a lot of white space.
The colours are kept to a minimum.

Here is a close up so that you can see that I have
heat embossed a mini-sentiment on the acetate in 
order to complete the HUGS message.  

The red mini hearts inside the shaker window were
needed in order to get a pop to the card.



EMBRACE - CASology week 224

This card is made for the CASology week 224 challenge:

I used a Swedish textstamp that rhymes and in english it means:
Between  bills and advertising
here is a letter with a hug!

I have stamped on thin wood veneer and used a black card base.
To add a little interest I added a small metal heart on a string.

Hope you enjoy!

Luciatåg as a TEAM effort

This time of the year there is a special
TEAM effort going on in Sweden:


This is my second card for Week 223@CASology
where the theme right now is TEAM.

Normally the saint Lucia is celebrated on December 13th
by a team singing Christmas songs.
In the team there should be one Lucia, one or more
tärnor (the one with glitter on the head), one or more
stjärngosse (the one with the cone on the head) and one or more
santas. In addition there can also be one or more

If you get curious please google it!

Hugs Petra

TEAM week 223 CASology

Week 223@CASology is TEAM!

Here is my first card on that theme:

Du & Jag means You & Me
but in Swedish.

Actually I used this stamp on the card
from my Grandma to my Grandpa on his funeral.
They had been married for 71 years when he
passed by accident at the age of 95ca.

They were a great TEAM together!

Hugs Petra

6 november 2016


Today I have made a really CAS card with
old-school invitations (inbjudan in Swedish).

I think black and white is tricky to
get interesting but I had to give it a go!

with the theme WELCOME with this card:

I was inspired by the new T-shirt that I bought yesterday
for my son:

Welcome to have some Christmas fika

Fancy a Swedish Christmas fika?

I have created this card for CASology week 222: WELCOME

I would be delighted to get this invitation including
gingerbread (pepparkaka), saffron buns (lussebulle)
and snowman soup (snögubbesoppa).

I could not stop myself from decorating the mug with a mini Santa as well.



Welcome all Cookie Monsters

Today I have made a card that suits both
CASology week 222: Welcome
Addicted to CAS challenge #100: Monster

My cookie monster welcomes you all to a 
Swedish FIKA with cinnamon buns!

Text translated from Swedish says:
Do you want to have a fika with me?




Idag visar jag en massa grankort i Gummiapans blogg:

Så fantastiskt fin!!!

Slalomgranen är ny för i höst.

Till sist lite presentetiketter till tyska julklappar!

Det blev en bonus i form av lite färgglada granar med:

Krya på dig!

Yet another "Get well" card for CASology.
Get well is Krya på dig in Swedish.

This time I used some stamps from Gummiapan and kept
it really simple...

I put some Glossy Accent on the hearts!
