Pardon me while I toot my own horn...?

I just got the coolest assignment: to design for Swedish stamp manufacturer HellaBella Design!

Since my current obsession in creation is paint, stamps and templates, it fit me like a gloooove and when Hella asked me I think I actually hesitated for just as long as it took for me to hit the reply button and go
"YES! Please! Thank you!"

(Reminds me of the movie "happythankyoumoreplease"...)

Here's my first LO for Hella:


I've used
- Svala stor
- Svala liten
- Splatter
- Krackelerad bgr.
- The Crafter's Workshop Template + inks
- Scraps of papers
- You Do bling

...and here's a bonus: my easter cards for this year, made with a HellaBella stamp (Kålfjäril) and for the Scraplagret cyber crop challenge to create something inspired by Easter.

I dunno about you, but when I was a kid I made Easter cards by colouring my thumb yellow, pressing that thumb print onto paper and adding a beak and legs and eyes...
This is, sort of, the grown up version!
It's super easy and I actually love how they came out! (Even if the phot isn't one of my best. Sorry about that. All cards are already sent! ;))

Hope I have inspired you to create more with stamps and inks!

VA? Blev chockad när jag såg att jag inte har kommenterat här inne! Måste ha lämnat kärlek inne på Hellas blogg istället.

Tjejen, det här är helt fantastiskt! Jag köper stämplar ibland för jag vill så gärna kunna använda dem, men sen så ger jag bort dem eller glömmer dem nånstans på något mörkt botten. "Åh, oubidou, jag vill ju va' som du-u..." Du rockar!

Stort grattis! Det känns som ett heeeeelt perfekt uppdrag för dig!
