A young guest on my blog. :)






Hi!

Today I'm having a young guest on my blog. :)

My 8 year old son made this card for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.
The challenge this time was "Stencil it".


He used Distress inks in the colors Stormy Sky and Chipped Saphire, and blended it onto
the panel with a blending tool, and then flicked some water on. When it was dry he applied modeling paste through a star stencil. (Waiting for the paste to dry was super boring! ;) )

He used a die from My Favorite Things to cut the banner, and stamped Happy Birthday, using the MISTI stamp tool and Versafine ink.

He used the Scor Pal to score the card base, and adhered his panel on it. The banner with the sentiment is mounted on foam tape.


I really hope you like his card! :)
He was very happy with it, and pointed out that he's just a beginner, and not like me, "who make like maybe FIVE cards a year!!" LOL!

Stencil and stamp is from Practical Publishing. (It was a freebie in a magazine.)
The large stitched panel, and the small fishtail banner are dies from My Favorite Things.


Thank you for stopping by! :)

(PS. He would love some kind comments on his card. :) )

Driving home for christmas ♥



I saw this idea somewhere on Pinterest or Instagram, and just had to make my own.
Found the PERFECT car today! Looking at this makes me ridiculously happy! :D LOVE it! ♥

The car is bought in a Vivo bookstore, it's a Classic 1967 Beetle, from Kinsmart,

Trykkpressa november 2015 (Entry #3)



My third and last entry for Trykkpressa november 2015.

I got the new Hot Cocoa Cups die-set yesterday, along with the Merry Christmoose stamp set,
both from My Favorite Things. Had a chance to play with them today, so I made this CAS-card.
I was going to add some enamel dots, but decided I wanted the super clean look, to keep all the focus on the hot chocolate mug. :)

I've also used a stitched rectangle from Blueprints 13, and Pierced Rectanlges, also from My Favorite Things.

Hello


Stamps and Hello die from Simon Says Stamp. The heart is stamped with Brilliance Dew Drop Galaxy Gold.

To make the panel I used the Pierced Fishtail Flags from My Favorite Things. I glued the black and white diecuts on a piece of cardstock, and then placed the stitched square die from Blueprint 14 on top, and cut a striped panel.

The heart and hello is mounted on 3D foamtape.

Enamel dots from Papirdesign.

Vodka latte, to go...



This is Granny Gertz, from Eat Cake Grapics. I thought this sentiment from Art Impressions
would fit great.

Granny Gertz is painted with Distress ink pads and reinkers.

I've used dies from the Blueprints 14, from My Favorite Things. The flower in this die set was a little too big for this card, so I used a flower from Cuttlebug instead. Papers from My Minds Eye.




Another card, made from the same "recipe". Not sure where the paper is from.




Tv die from QuicKutz, sentiment from Ankas Design. I've also used the Pierced Fishtail Flags die from My Favorite Things. Chevron stamp from Prima Marketing.

Ett Trykks jubileumsutfordring nr 1, ATC.

Her er en enkel ATC laget til utfordringen hos Ett Trykk, i forbindelse med 10-årsjubileet.




Farget ATC'n med Promarkers, brukte et stempel fra Unity Stamp Company.
Limte på noen hvite, runde klistremerker, og klisjet på litt hvit gesso.
Limte på et chipboardhjerte, og brukte rubons og klistremerker til tekst.

Skulle tro det tok meg 2 minutter, men når kreativiteten har
tørket i mange mnd tar det laaaang tid å komme igang...

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! :)
