Birthday Cake Sassy


Ser at det snart er på tide med en blogcandy igjen! Nederst på siden min har jeg en sånn nedtellings-dings, og den forteller meg at det er bare 14 dager til bloggen min har bursdag! Rart å tenke på at det er hele 7 år siden! 

Har plukket ut 'noen' av mine kreasjoner opp gjennom årene ~ Stilen min og fargelegging teknikkene har forbedret seg veldig siden jeg begyndte å blogge i 2008 :)

Motivet på kortet mitt er fra Sassy Studio Designs, og noen av de første stemplene jeg fikk i digi-format, var fra faktisk derfra. Husker jeg digget de 'vampete' linjene, som var så annerledes enn Magnolia, House-Mouse og Penny Black stemplene jeg begyndte med ;) Det er forresten en Sassy bloghop og muligheter for freebies idag!!!
http://buysassystudiodesigns.blogspot.com

Sassy Studio's stamps are so fun to ink up! Got this lovely babe for free at their facebook group, I just LUV freebies ♥ Actually the Sassy stamps were among the first I got when I discovered digistamps! I plan on hopping along their 6years BD bloghop today! There's big chances of winning some more freebies ♥

Weird to think it's soon 7 years since I started blogging! My coloring skills and style of crafting has really changed over the years :) I do hope you'll come back in about 14 days to see what surprise blogcandy I will celebrate with! It will be yummy!

A Gal with Brains ~ Zombie tag!


Urban Dictionary Definition; Zombabe
A disturbingly good looking member of the undead... 
"As much as it would probably hurt, that zombabe could eat my brain any day of the week!" John said as the zombie, a former playboy playmate, shuffled hungrily towards him.
Har en smule Walking Dead abstinenser... så jeg følte for å male litt utenom det vanlige sukkersøte.. og Betty Queen of Halloween Roberts, (eier og digi-kunstner for Simply Betty) lager de kuleste zombie-bertene man kan få tak på i digi-verdenen! ... Og en passende cupcake fra Tiddly Inks som også har mange goth/ Min første zombabe fargelagt i ordntlige zombifiserte farger.. lekker, ikke sant? ;) 

front and back view

I have a bit of the Walking Dead withdrawal.. and felt like inking up something out of the usual comfort zone.. enough with the sugary sweet pink and cute! Bring on the zombabes!!! Betty Queen of Halloween Roberts, is the owner and digi-artista for Simply Betty, and she really rules when it comes to drawing hot zombie babes! 
This is my first try at inking a zombie, such fun to play with :) And I have paired her with a cute goth cupcake ♥ Also one of my fave digi artists is Christy Croll of Tiddly Inks ~ highly recommend a visit to both theese lovely ladies stores;

Top Tip Tuesday ~ all about the Hair colour! [June 7th.]
And my Top Tip: When buying shirts/sweaters, save the ribbons the shop uses to hang the garments  from the neckline, and the price tags are often great to recycle and use on your crafty creations. And If you like to watercolor, I recommend adding a few (or several) Twinkeling H2O's to your stash, the shine to the images will Bring your creations to new heights!
 

UPDATE: I won at SBS FB challenge! Awesome, won a pick of one digi 
which will be the gorgeous 'Steampunk Bubble Gun Betty
Cannot wait to see what it will be like to ink her up :)

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 :)
