Home sweet home! :)


Nå er sommeren snart over, rekordvarme dager, sol og mye reising frem og tilbake til Lofoten... Og forrige uke var jo opp og ned, Lofoten, Bodø, Tromsø og tilbake siden mamma hadde netthinneløsning på et øye og måtte opereres ~ det gikk kjempefint! Og innimellom fikk jeg jo shoppet litt også ;) Er bare SÅ deilig å endelig være hjemme igjen, og kunne kose meg ordntlig på scrapperommet mitt, og pakke ut nye herligheter... [skal legge ut et bilde av allt stæsjet her!]

Ukens utfordring hos Creative Fingers #46. er sponset av OddBall Art Stamps, og som alltid er det 'Lag-hva-du-vil' med et valgfritt tema som denne gangen er å bruke 'tekstur'. Utfordringen varer i 14dager, så her er tid nok å være med :)

"Next time you think of beautiful things, don't forget to think about yourself!"

SO good to be back home! After staying in Lofoten almost all summer long, and travelling back and forth, it's sweet to relax and enjoy my scraprooms treasures again :) Got my inks and stampmotifs with me when I'm away, but inspiration to create (and all the stuff to do so with) is in my scraproom ofcourse.. would be difficult to carry all that ~ they joke that I got more supplies than a whole store.. which probably is true! *lol*

This weeks challenge #46. at Creative Fingers (will run for 2 weeks) is sponsored by OddBall Art Stamps, and the Theme is as always Anything Goes, with an optional twist this week of using 'Texture' on your project. You are most welcome to join in! :)

Owl tag for my Mum ♥


Merker at denne sommeren har fløyet bort når jeg kommer til bloggen min! *tørker støv* Har vært i Lofoten stort sett siden slutten av mai, noen snarturer innom hjemme, rasket med meg litt ting og tang i kofferten... Å glemme klær går an, glemme distress inks'ene er umulig! :) 
Sist vi var hjemme i Blokken var hybelkaninene blitt så store at jeg nesten snublet i dem! *hehe* Hvem gidder å dra frem støvsugeren i den varmen som har vært? Og midt i all den fartingen frem og tilbake? Neida, satt heller med ei vifte i nærheten, iskald pepsimax og scræppet en tag til mammaen min, med ei ugle på siden hun er så glad i dem ♥

Ukens utfordring hos Creative Fingers #45. er sponset av DillyBeans, og som alltid er det 'Lag-hva-du-vil' med et valgfritt tema som denne gangen er å bruke 'Fargen SORT + andre farger', men hovedsaklig sort! Siden det er sommer vil den vare i 14dager, så her er tid nok å være med :)

Min niese på 10 år tok dette flotte bildet her på Hammerstad Camping :)
 
Helt fantastisk sommervær iår! Oppe i 32°C! Har jo hatt noen torden dager også ~ og duallverden for et regnskyll, trodde det var syndefloden som stod for døren... om jeg hadde trodd på sånt da ;) Men i morgen blir det visst sol og fint vær igjen ~ og da blir det kansje tur på Vikinge festivalen ~ Lofotr museumet på Borg iløpet av helga? 


I know that I've been absent when I get to my blog and have to dust away imaginary dust-bunnies! ;) The time has just flown by, summers gone soon and now it's almost fall.. 
Well, at least it's livable now! There's been times with record tropical heat, up to 32°C here on Hammerstad Camping ~ fantastic for northern Norway, just check out the pretty postcard photo my 10 year old niece took with her iPad up above! Have had som days now with thunder and lighting, and such heavy rainfall.. thought we might need Noahs ark.. ;) But tomorrows forecast is sunny again, so we might get to go to the Viking festival at Lofotr viking museum this weekend!

 Added Glossy accents to some details, some washi tape and Panduro waxed thread. Some background paper is done with mixed media ~ acrylic brown, black n gold paints + bubblewrap on my Gelli Arts 6x6 Gel Printing Plate.

Fantasy, Tattoos & Baby Dragons!


Det er vel ingen hemmelighet at jeg er kjempefan av alt som har med alver, drager og alt som har med fantasy å gjøre.. Omtrent annenhvert stempel jeg har er fantasy relatert! 
Alle tattisene mine også :) Drager, pixie og islandsk rune fra Margit Sandemo sin 'Heksemesteren' serie. Det blir stort sett fantasy eller sci-fi når jeg leser bøker eller ser tv-serier og filmer ~ Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Grimm, Once Upon a Time, LOTR, Supernatural etc. 

Akkurat nå leser jeg InkSpell fra InkHeart trilogien av Cornelia Funke. Så filmen på nytt for en tid tilbake, og nå gikk jeg lei av å ikke vite 'hva som skjedde videre' etterpå filmen... det kommer visst ikke en oppfølger? Så jeg kjøpte bøkene InkHeart, InkSpell & InkDeath. Tror det man fargelegger blir litt farget av det man leser også! :)

Creative Fingers utfordring denne uken #42. er sponset av AuroraWings, og som alltid er det 'Lag-hva-du-vil' med et valgfritt tema som denne gangen er 'Ramme ~ for eks. ramme inn et motiv eller lag en ramme! :) 

~ You are one of my nicest thoughts... My Friend ~

It's no secret I'm a big fan of Fairies & Dragons.. or really any kind of magical fantasy creature! ♥ I luv reading and watching Fantasy & Sci-fi, like Grimm, Once Upon a Time, LOTR, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones & Supernatural etc. 

Currently I'm reading InkSpell from the InkHeart trilogy by Cornelia Funke, and I think my inking and digi choices has been colored by that :) Saw the movie again recently, and I was too curious to see how it all went ~ as it seems no sequel will follow? :( Brendan Fraser is one of my fave actors as well, like in the Mummy! ♥


inside detail

Almost every other stamp of mine is a fantasy one ~ and I got a pixie tattoo, celtic seahorse dragon, chinese fire dragon (my zodiac sign), and on my wrist I even have an icelandic 'galder' (Heksemesteren by Margit Sandemo) ~ a white rune for good health among other things.. never did come true however!.. *lol* ;)

WeddingCard ♥ For a Lovely Couple


Jeg og moren min var i bryllup til ei av mine aller beste venninner i helga ♥ og festen ble holdt på samme hotell som vi overnattet på ~ Rica Hotell i Narvik. Et nydelig nybakt ektepar, med en kjempekoselig familie og god mat pluss drinker.. mojito nam!.. og det var så et flott hotell, supert hotellrom og deilig seng :) Bodde i 13'de etg. og festen var i 16'de ~ helt på toppen! (Ring rundt rommet vårt på bildet).

Fikk god tid til å vandre litt rundt på Amfi shoppingsentret som lå like ved, og vi fant også en Panduro forhandler ikke langt unna.. Klær og sko kan sløydes, med bokhandler og hobbybutikker ~ der går bankkortet varmt.. På hjemturen kom vi tilogmed tilfeldig over en scrappebutikk i Bjerkvika!!! Scrap'n Joy. Kom hjem med bilen full av poser med scrappe-stæsj, Playstation spill, ting og tang! :)

Lagde selvfølgelig bryllupskortet selv, ville jo ikke tatt seg ut (som den scrappeberta jeg er) om jeg troppet opp med et helt vanlig butikk-kort! ;) 
Kjøpte dette nydelige AuroraWings stemplet for anledningen, og jeg har på følelsen at dette kommer til å bli motivet på de aller fleste bryllupskortene jeg lager fremover ~ Mitzi Sato Wiuff er en fantastisk kunstner! ♥


Me and my mum was attending one of my best girlfriends wedding this past weekend, and they were such a lovely couple! ♥ Great party, sweet family, good food & drinks ~ yummy mojito's! Sure am going to try making some at home! 
We stayed at the same hotel as the party ~ room on the 13th floor, bar & dinner on the top 16th floor! If you see the photo further up, it's no wonder they call it the sky-bar! (The circle is around the room we stayed in :)

During the day we also got to shop in the nearby shoppingcentre, and on the way back we found a little shop named Scrap'n Joy in Bjervika. So we went back home with lots of good memories, some new Playstation games & freebies, yummy new papers, stamps, dies & gorjuss things! 

Ofcourse I created the weddingcard to give them myself ~ it just wouldn't do to show up at the wedding with a plain store-bought card! Beeing a self-proclaimed scrap-artista... ;)
I got this AuroraWings digistamp for this occasion, but I'm sure it will show up on nearly all weddingcards I create from now on ~ Mitzi Sato Wiuff is such an amazing artist! ♥

You can go along way to acheiving the vintage look by starting with theese Distress inks ans some good blending tools.. and water comes for free! :)

A Pirate's Life for me...


Jeg befinner meg i vakre Lofoten for tiden, på Hammerstad Camping sammen med familien min ~ og det har vært alltfor lite tid til blogging og kort.. Men jeg hadde jo noen DT prosjekter klare ;)

Creative Fingers utfordring denne uken #38. er som vanlig 'Lag-hva-du-vil' med et valgfritt tema som denne gangen er 'Billetter'! Vår sponsor, Sassy Studio Designs, har gitt meg en digi jeg har hatt på ønskelista mi lenge ~ Once Upon a Time 'Pirate Penny' :)

I got a question on how to get this kind of background: you cover up the image with a postit, then after distressing around it, use the 'flicking-water-with-your-fingers' technique - or a spray/mister. I had some ink on my craftsheet wich I picked up droplets of and flicked on it as well. You can watch many 'spritz & flick' technique videos on youtube, this is one about 6+min. in: Ranger Inks video with Tim Holtz also here with Dixie Cravens Basic blending techniques n flickin water spots - The results are pretty cool!

TPS Confirmation card


Vel 17 mai kom og gikk ~ eller regnet bort kan man vel heller si ;) Koste meg heller inne på scrapperommet med å lage konfirmasjons kort! The Paper Shelter har mange nydelige digi stempel sett, med både digitale ferdig fargelagde bilder (som det over) og ark som står til, lettvindt for de kjappe kortene. Og digistempler om man vil fargelegge selv! 
Denne jenta heter 'Eva and her ferret', men røyskatten har jeg 'croppet' bort siden ikke alle konfirmanter er så heldig å ha en som kjæledyr ;) 

..Today, from childhood
to youth you will go..
Don't forget that you reap
what you sow..


inside of the card ~ with a money pocket  

Our national holiday on the 17th of may came, and it rained away, while I sat in my warm & cozy scraproom making cards instead.. letting all the other people getting soaked and getting the flu instead! *lol* ;)  Nah, never was one for celebrating in style ~ don't even own a bunad (norwegian traditional dress), although I do have a couple of digital stamp ones!
The Paper Shelter has got lots of sweet digistamp sets ~ with both linearts and colored images (like this one I'm using) wich is awesome for those quickie cards. And there is also papers to go along with the designs, very handy! This girl is named 'Eva and her ferret' although I've cropped the ferret away, as not many confirmands has ferrets as pets on their special day ;)
