The end of the road?

Well dear cyberspace friends, I think this might be the end of the road for my blog. At least it will take a much needed vacation and maybe, when life gives me some breathing space, it will be back (with a vengance?). You'll still find the occasional post for a challenge entry here but as of now you'll find my card concoctions on Instagram.
If you're a IG-user, feel free to follow me at babsanpysslar.

The big 4-0

A week ago my dear friend Kerstin turned the big 4-0. We've been teasing her about it quite a bit so I just hade to make a card that emphasized just how many candles she would need on her cake. The stamps from Stamps of life are colored with Copic markers and the sentiment is another MAMBI sticker.

Lots of candles

I found this set of stamps and dies for sale in a Facebook group. They're from Stamps of life, a brand I've never heard of before. Both stamps and dies were of really good quality and I found quite a few other sets on their website that I wouldn't mind to get my hands on. I especially like their quirky fonts. This sentiment, though, is a clear sticker from MAMBI set (another great birthday present).

Copic coloring

Inspired by my friends Malin & Hanna, who just discovered Copics, I've rekindled my coloring flame. I'm actually really happy with how the skirts came out on this card. I guess the old saying "practice makes perfect" is still going strong. 

Pyssloteket now has quite an assortment of Stamping Bella-stamps. You can find them here.

Steampunk shoes

A few weeks back I left the big 40 behind and year 41 started out beutifully with gorgeous weather, a nice dinner on the town and lots of presents. I looove presents! Among other things, I recieved  big navy & mustard colored leather handbag, perfect for fall, and the sweetest bracelet that has a braille inscription that says "breathe", a perfect reminder to do just that when work gets a little much. Of course I got some scrappy goodies as well, for example THE coolest stampset from Stampendous called "Steampunk shoes". Dorothy gone all steampunk. Love them! I just had to try them out right away so I whipped together a quick card using only red distress inks and golden perfect pearl.

Beach bum

This cute little beach bum got a watercolor background to relax on.
