Even more Nordic Spring cards :)

Yes, yes, yes, the cards again :) I still keep making them as it's great fun to mix and combine all those stamps, inks, punched shapes, papers, backgrounds and die cuts together and it's also a perfect opportunity to stretch and exercise your imagination and creativity (the sky is the limit, so they say) :) I usually make one or two cards after hours, in the evenings and then I end up with a few by the end of the week. Here are my recent Nordic Spring cards for this Easter season.

The "Norwegian sweater" style eggs on aperture cards - my idea for Easter 2013 and one of my favourite type of cards. I tried to keep them simple - the knitted pattern speaks for itself. Pastel colours are a must here! 

In the card below I had an opportunity to use my new polka dot embossing folder :)))) Been looking for one for a while!




All 4 apertures together :)


I've also made some pink/purplish cards with folky eggs, they have been inked and shaded with the blending chalks.



And side by side :)


A couple of aperture cards in yellow-green-orange colours:




And one with a cute yellow bunny :)



Voila! It has been a very crafty week! :)
Well-deserved Hand-made Monday blog fun!

  1. Wow!! These are all absolutely beautiful, they look sooo lovely and cheery all together in the final picture :)

    I'm loving the pastel colours, the embossing (sounds fun!), the big pink flowers on the yellow card which are so pretty and effective and the norwegian sweater stamping.. perfect for decorating Easter eggs!

    In case you don't get the chance to pop back to my blog this week, the answer to your question about where i got ceramic eggs from is that its a UK website called Baker Ross... hope this helps! x
