10-årsjubileum på

Her er to kort jeg har laget til utfordringene på i forbindelse med 10-årsjubileet.

Til oppgave nr 10, tørrembossing og glitter har jeg laget dette julekortet:

Fuglestempelet er fra Unity Stamp Companys October kit, Oh Christmas Tree
Tekststempelet er fra Ett Trykks juleplate 2B. De hvite snøfnuggene er stempel fra Provo Craft.
Jeg har embosset med QK GooseBumpz Sunburst.
Har også brukt McGill granbar punch (og den gikk i stykker.. :'(   ) 
halvperler, mini snøfnugg punch fra Notabene, tag, bånd og Stickles.

Kort til oppgave nr 2, julekort uten fargen rød:

Julekulene er også fra Unity Stamp Company, Oh Christmas Tree.
Det lille stempelet, Gledelig jul, tror jeg er fra Papirloftet.
Har stemplet julekulene med Prima chalk,
og pyntet dem med halvperler og rhinestones fra Kaiser Craft.
Har brukt sølv Stickles som tråd til kulene, og rundt kanten av panelet.

I have colored Ian with my Faber-Castell pencils. 
The tag is from QuicKutz, and the tiny hearts on the tag is from the Katie Skinni Mini alphabet, also by QuicKutz.

Garden Variety Tuesday challenge

Here's a card I made for a sketch challenge over at The Greeting Farm blog. :)

I've used the super cute deer from the Forest Friends set from The Greeting Farm.

Just for fun, I coloured it with a gel pen with glitter, and used water to paint over the ink. I think it worked out very well! You don't always need expencive markers or paints to get a fun result! :)

The paper is from my Minds Eye, and the text stamp is from Norsk Stempelblad. The diecuts in the corners are made with an old Cuttlebug die.

(I couldn't get the colours right in the photo, but this is the best I could do. Just imagine it looks a little bit prettier.. ;) )

Thanks for stopping by! Have a nice weekend! :)

Papertake Weekly Challenge, Old, New, Borrowed or Blue.

This is for The Papertake Weekly Challenge Old, New Borrowed or Blue

I have used something old, something new and blue colours.

The Superstar stamp is from Purple Onion Designs. 
I got it years ago, when the kit club Self Addressed was up and running. 
(I really, really miss Self Addressed! :'( )

The star border is from Megilo and is also old. 

I've stamped with different Prima Chalk ink pads, which are new. 
This is my first project using them, and I already know I need more of them! ;-) 

The camera is from a Spellbinders set called Snapshot, which is also new.

Smil, (not a typo, but smile in Norwegian) is written with old Thickers.

I drew the decorative corners with a pen I "borrowed" from my computer desk. ;P

Thanks for stopping by, have a nice day! :)

Two more one layer cards

This is Best of Luck from Penny Black.
The text is from Norsk Stempelblad.

This is Max from Sparkle N' Sprinkle. The text is from Ankas Design.
I've also used a QuicKutz die to make the retro circles.

Have a nice day! :)

One layer cards

My energy levels are quite low at the moment, and one layer cards are perfect for taking my mind off things and being a little creative for a short time, without too much work. They're all made out of Bazzill Kraft, stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa, and colored in with Derwent and Faber-Castell pencils. I also added KaiserCraft pearls.

Here's one with the same stamp as my red, white & blue card, Miss Anya from The Greeting Farm. I wanted to use the same stamp, but with a totally different look. The text is from Darcies Country Folk. The white dots on the umbrella is made with a Sakura Gelly Roll pen. I've tried loads of different white pens, and this is my favourite.

This is an old Penny Black stamp, called Lovin' & Huggin'. The text is from Ankas Design. 

This cute stamp from Sugar Nellie is called Bear Hug. The text is from Ankas Design.

Have a nice day! :)
