New cards


Having a bit of trouble here.. Just click on the cards to see the full image. Thanks!

First off, thank you for looking at my cards, and thanks for all the nice comments! I appreciate it! Free Smiley Courtesy of

Here's a card I made for a challenge at
The challenge was to make a autumn card.

I've used Tilda med maskros, and the text is from ClubStamp.
I've colored Tilda with my new Promarkers and MCP.
To make the leaves I inked a piece of watercolor paper, just dabbing the colors randomly. Then I used my cuttlebug with a leaf die to cut out leaves from the inked paper.


Here's a simple card with a stamp that's been standing on my shelf for a while.

The stamp is called Chic! and is from Penny Black. The text is from Kreativ Hobby.
I've colored the girl with Promarkers, and used a brown color pencil and Sansodor to create shadows.

Thanks for looking!

Cappuccino card

I got this lovely Whiff of Joy stamp yesterday. I just had to order it immediately when I saw it! I had an idea for a card with a single pack of instant coffe (or cocoa, or tea) inside, and this stamp fits just perfect! :)

And the inside:

I've used Willow with hot chocolate from Whiff of Joy, swirls from Inkadinkado, text from Purple Onion Designs, frame from Norsk Stempelblad, and the text inside is from Else Irene Meling. :)

Willow is colored with Promarkers and MCP.

Thanks for looking!

New birthday card

Here's a birthday card I've made using some beautiful collage images from
Lisa's Altered Art

The girl and the butterfly wing is from the collage sheets.
The muffin is made wit design paper and a piece of pink Bazzill cardstock coated with Diamond Stickles.

The lace is actually a piece that was left over when my mom made my christening gown, 27 years ago. :)

The text is from Kort i hodet, and the circles and hearts stamp is from Fancy pants.

(Oh, and the card isn't this crooked IRL, it just looks this way because of the way it was lying in the scanner.. )

Thanks for looking!

Ett trykks utfordring #8

Denne utfordringen passet veldig bra nå. Har lenge hatt planer om å prøve aluminiumsfolie i embossingfolderne mine. Det funket kjempebra! :D Brettet folien 6 ganger og la den inni folderen, og rullet gjennom cuttlebugen.

Stempel: Mothfab fra Stampotique og tekst fra Clubstamp.

Ett trykks utfordring #2

Her er bidraget mitt til
utfordrin #2.

Stempel fra Whispers og Kreativ hobby. :)
Scanneren lyver litt på dette kortet. Blåfargen er dusere og ikke så lilla, den er mer lik båndet.

High Hopes challenge #1

Here's my card for the very first
High Hopes Rubber stamps challenge

The challenge was to make a birthday card, and use brads. And of course use stamps from High Hopes Rubberstamps. :)

This stamp is called Sundays best. I've colored it with Derwent Studio coloring pencils. The letters are from the Cuttlebug alphabeth called Babyface, and the paper is from Basic Grey.

Thanks for looking!

Birthday girl

Here's a birthday card I've made with my new stamp from
Stampotique Originals

A litle detail:

I've painted the girl with distress ink, and i also died the cotton thread on the button with distress ink. The text is made with a
Dymo Junior

The stamp is called Moth Fab and is from Stampotique Originals.

Thanks for looking! :)

Some new cards

I've had a though couple of weeks.
My dad passed away june 30. He's had cancer for almost 3 years, and we knew he wouldn't get cured. He was in a lot of pain, so I guess it was a relief for him to get home to God. But it will probably take some time to get used to not having him among us anymore.

I've made a few cards, to keep my mind occupied.

Spritz & flick technique.
The flower stamp is Pash from Penny black, and the text is from ClubStamp.


The boots are painted with Twinkling H2O's.
"These boots" from Stamp-It and the text is from Norsk Stempelblad, and the tiny writing on the flowers are from Panduro.


A different birthday card. :)
(Not inspired by my dad, that was just a coincidence...)



And here's a christmas card.

It's sort of the spritz & flick technique, but with a twist.
I've mixed perfect pearls and water in a mini mister, and sprayed over the panel, and used this mix to flick with my fingers, so the image is a bit sparkling. Thought it would be a nice touch on a christmas card.

The tree is from Eureka stamps and the text is from Papirloftet.

That's it for now.
Thanks for looking!

The stamp Vennskap is from
Norsk stempelblad

Thanks for looking!

Flower card. :)

Here's a quick & easy flower card. I've stamped with Autumn leaves clearstamps. Added some Distress ink around the edges, mounted it on several layers of bazzill, and put a ribbon and some green pearls on it. There's no text on it on purpose.
