Hooked on you ♥

Stamp and text from Unity Stamp Company, Happy Love Day.
I have also used Die-namics Blueprints 14, from My Favorite Things.
Cardstock from Bazzill, and paper from Doodlebug.

And I think I'm addicted to these enamel dots from the norwegian company Papirdesign!
I absolutely love them!

Thank you for visiting my blog! :)

Storing stamps

This is how I store my rubber stamps. :)

I stamp the images and then laminate the paper. I'm using Color Copy 200g, but you can use any paper as long as it's heavy enough. (The stamps get quite heavy when you fill the page! ) 

I put them in binders, which can be easily stored on a shelf above my work space. Easy to reach for when I need them, and easy to flip through the binder to find the right stamp, or just to get inspired! . :)

My laminating machine is a cheap Peach Photo Laminator A4 Silver Line,
bought years ago, but still gets the job done.

Thanks for stopping by!

A card for Unitys Friends with flair

Here's a card I've made for Friends with Flair, over at the Unity blog. :)

For this card I used some stamps from Unity Stamp Company. 
The bird is from a past KOM kit, Strength & Dignity, and the round 
scalloped stamp is from the Blossom Stackers kit. The Blossom Stackers can be used with 
the Blossom Tags & Accents die set from Spellbinders, as you can see on my card. :)

The text is from Papirloftet.
I've also used Rose Leaves Signature Dies, from Joanna Sheen, 
and Prima Say it in Crystals.

And here's a little tutorial on how I made the flowers. :)

Use 2 different sizes of the Retro flower punch, from EK Success and punch out
lots of flowers from cardstock. I used Bazzill Smoothie Walnut Cream.

Use a pair of decorative edge scissors on the edges of the petals.

I used brown Memento ink and a Paperbag Studios stamp.

Use a sponge or blending tool and apply Broken China Distress ink, 
or any other color or ink you would like.

Lightly mist the flowers, and crumble them. 
Mist again, and let them dry for a while.

When they are almost completely dry, open them up.

Put one flower on top of the other, and glue it in place. 
Place it on a soft surface and use a pointy tool to press down in the middle.
Add several layers, at least 3

To make the center place one flower face down. Add some glue in the center and
on the petals. Press the tool down in the middle, and lift the petals up, one by one, and
fold them tightly around the tool.

Put some glue on the flower you already made, and add the center.

Add some Vintage Photo Distress ink with the blending tool, and you're done! :) 

Thanks for stopping by! :)

For our living room wall

I've made this for our living room wall. 

I really like this quote! 

I've used Panduro cardstock and QuicKutz to make the buttons.
The text is printed on our Canon iX6550.
Size: 43x43cm.

Stjerner 3

Her er kort nr 3 til Ett Trykks stjerneutfordring.

Denne gangen ble det et enkelt one layer card.
Jeg liker så godt å stemple på kraftkartong og fargelegge med
fargeblyanter, jeg synes det passer så godt til enkle kort,
og jeg synes fargene kommer så godt frem.

Jeg har brukt Gorjuss girls stempel, og fargelagt med Faber-Castell Classic Colorpencils.
Teksten er fra Kreativ Hobby. 
Har også brukt stjernedie fra QuicKutz.

Ser nå at jeg har glemt å fargelegge stjernene på skoene hennes, men de skal bli hvite,
akkurat som stjernene på kjolen hennes. ;)

Takk for besøket! :)

Stjerner 2

Kort nummer to, til Ett Trykks ufordring Stjerner.

Jeg tapet washitape på en bit kartong, og trykket ut en stjerne med Spellbinders die.
Teksten er fra Norsk Stempelblad.

Knappen har egentlig samme farge som den mørk rosa tapen med prikker, men fargen ble ikke helt riktig på bildet. Den har også noen streker med glitter inni.

Her er et enkelt babykort til Ett Trykks utfordring Stjerner.

Jeg har stemplet på Bazzill Kraft og fargelagt med Faber Castell fargeblyanter.
Bamsen er fra et utgått stempelsett fra C.C. Designs (Tidligere All That Scraps).
Teksten er fra Kort og Godt.
Jeg har også brukt dies fra Magnolia, Spellbinders og QuicKutz, og scrappers floss fra Karen Foster.

Takk for at du stakk innom! :)
