Confirmation card for a Piano girl!


Nok et konfirmasjons kort i bloggen min. Faktisk et som har blitt liggende lenge på pc'n, og det kan man jo ikke ha noe av ~ man må jo vise frem det man blir fornøyd med, ikke at jeg ofte blir misfornøyd da.. ;) 
Det blir nok mye av konfirmant kort her fremover, og ganske sikkert noen bryllup og dåpskort også snart. Det er vår, snart er sommern her, og det dufter så deilig ute! Blir rent i romantisk humør.. LOL :P (om du hadde kjent meg, ville du skjønt det er en sjeldenhet)..

Om du har lyst til å ta en titt på denne bloggposten jeg skrev ifjor, forteller jeg om hvordan jeg bruker digitale stempler printet med inkjet, og det er også masse bilder av scrapperommet mitt.. og litt av hvert :)

Ukens utfordring hos Creative Fingers #79. er sponset av Sami Stamps! Denne gangen bruker vi de motivene vi selv ønsker, og denne vakre piano-spillende jenta jeg har brukt her, er fra A day for Daisies ~ Tammy, som faktisk er storesøsteren til Sami! ♥  Som alltid er det 'Anything Goes', som betyr 'Lag-hva-du-vil' på vår utfordringsblogg, og du er hjertelig velkommen til å delta :)


A very pink and girly confirmation card on my blog today! ♥ and probably not the last of the romantic pastel colors for a while ~ it is spring, love is in the air, confirmations a plenty, and there are many weddings this time of year, plus lotsa cute babies are beeing baptised as well.. I'm going to be very busy! = Fun crafty play time for me! :) 

This week our sponsor is Sami Stamps for challenge #79. over at Creative Fingers! She makes lovely digis, however - I got none of Sami's images, so this beautiful piano-playing girl is actually from her older sister Tammy, of A day for Daisies! One of my absolute fave stamp artists :)
The Theme is always 'Anything Goes', create whatever you wish, and you are most welcome to join in! ♥

This digi main motif is one I had painted up long time ago, I got a box full of stamp-motifs just awaiting a creative card-moment! I wrote a blog-post back in september of last year, where I show my RINSE ~ TAP ~ DRY technique for watercoloring inkjet digistamps, and this was one of the stamps. And if you want to check it out there's alot of pics of my scraproom there as well as some tips and tricks, and great links to crafty people :)

TPS Confirmand Easel Card


Det er veldig sjeldent at jeg bruker ferdige motiver på mine prosjekter, foretrekker absolutt å male dem selv, i de fargene jeg vil ha, og så er det jo så beroligende og deilig å sitte å male! 

Men av og til er det så kjekt å ha noe klart for å spare tid, spesielt når man trenger mange konfirmant kort i en fei ~ vil anbefale The Paper Shelter's motiver da man får både den digitale og fargelagte versjonen av motivene :) 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eb4KV5_f9l0Vil også anbefale 'Stand Up Helpers' fra Elizabeth Craft Designs. Har lagd staffeli kort i mange år, men det har aldri vært så enkelt som med hjelp av disse diesene Klikk på bildet for en youtube-video! -->



I very rarely use ready-made motifs on my projects, I definitely prefer to paint them myself, getting the colors I wish, and it's so wonderfully soothing and rewarding to sit and color :)

http://thepapershelter.com/However, sometimes it is just SO handy to have something already done to save time ~ then I would recomend The Paper Shelter's motifs, as you'll get both the digital and pre-colored version of their motifs. This is the beautiful 'Eva And Her Ferret', perfect for a confirmation card ♥ 

My tip for Top Tip Tuesday: I also recomend the 'Stand Up Helpers' dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs. As you see there is a leaf duo holding up my card, and it was super easy to do! Theese dies comes in sets with many shapes, and is really helpful in making easel cards. Check out this video on their youtube channel.

--- Remember to join my blogcandy before it ends tomorrow night! ---

the Goblin Queen


Simply Betty Stamps er en av de digistempel-produsentene jeg har aller mest motiver fra, sånn EXTREMT mange ~ sikkert 500++ ikke inkludert tekster.. jepp, bare fargelagt noen dusin av dem, men Betty har veldig ofte bundles/kjempegoe rabatter og freebies så jeg får liksom aldri nok ;)
http://simplybstamps.net/

I absolutely LOVE this stamp company, can't ever get enough ~ and it shows, probably got 500+ digi motivs, not including all the lovely text stamps by SBS.. I haven't even inked up more than a couple dozen of them, but I keep on hoarding anyway, as Betty always do awesome bundles n discounts, too good to pass up on *lol* ;)
This cool Goblin Queen (reminds me of one of my fave movies the Labyrinth ~ 'MAGIC Dance' vid on youtube ~ perhaps she's a female Jareth?) was a freebie on Betty's Facebook group however. You should join if you want to be in a real creative, fun, a bit crazy and friendly group of fellow crafters :)

Aurora Reindeer ♥ Christmas Card


Ukens utfordring hos Creative Fingers #73. er sponset av The East Wind, og som alltid er det 'Anything Goes' som betyr 'Lag-hva-du-vil' på vår utfordringsblogg, du er hjertelig velkommen til å delta :) 

Har nettopp sagt farvel til min trofaste Cuttlebug (ca.2005-2006?) og kjøpt meg ny Sizzix Big Shot med Starter kit! Fikk den 600kr billigere enn listepris på et supertilbud i en lokal butikk, Handlaga, kunne jo ikke la det gå fra meg.. ;) Hadde mest lyst på Tim Holtz' elektriske Vagabond, men den får fortsatt stå på ønskelista en stund!
Oppdaget til min glede at CB kutte-platene kan bruke i denne også, som var kjempekjekt siden jeg har så mange nesten nye. Nå kan jeg endelig bruke mine lange dies fullt ut! Og se så pen den er 
 
https://www.etsy.com/shop/theeastwind

Just got myself the Big Shot starter kit, so I'm super-happy! First on my wishlist was the Vagabond, but I couldn't pass this up - huge discount - so the Tim Holtz dream-maschine will have to wait.. Maybe he'll do a bigger one sometime in the future that can take 8x8 and up? :)

The East Wind is our kind sponsor on challenge #73. this week at Creative Fingers, and as a member of the DT, I got this lovely digi to showcase :) The Theme is always 'Anything Goes', create whatever you wish! You are most welcome to join in! ♥
 

Here's a detailed shot of the fun-foam sentiment, it is such a cool 3D effect! 'God Jul' means 'Merry Christmas' btw. I wanted to show you the awesomeness that is Twinkeling H2O, see the shine? It really adds another level to your watercoloring! I added some shiny glitterglue to the letters, and glossy accents to details of the card.
