Time flies...


Et ordntlig maskulint kort dette, litt vintage og med nye flotte stempler fra Viva Las Vegas Stamps. De har utrolig mange stempler som passer til mer 'røffe' kort. Av og til virker det som om stempelverdenen er helt overfyllt med vakre og søte motiv, deilig og lage noe grungy ;)

..Worlds best Dad..

A very masculine card today, with some of my new stamps from VLVS ~ they got a whole lot of motifs for the more vintage and 'rough' types of projects. Sometimes it seems the crafting world is overflowing with cute and pretty ~ it is such a relief to go grungy once in a while! ;)

Ariel ~ Mermaid dreams under the Sea..

NB: This is a blogpost feauturing my niece's creations!

Jeg har noen flotte kreasjoner fra niesen min å vise frem! Jeg syns hun er kjempeflink til å være 10 år (11 år neste mnd.), men hun maser hele tiden om å bli like flink som meg, litt utålmodig kansje ~ de tre kortene nederst er fra 2013-2014 så øvelse gjør mester :)

Har hjulpet litt til med å fortelle hvor hun kan legge skygger, og jeg har tegnet og malt en havbunn for henne, hun fortalte hvilke stempler hun ville ha og hvor de skulle være. Hun har dilla på havfruer denne jenta! Men så har hun jo navnet til selveste den lille havfruen Ariel også da
Ville vært en flott bursdags overraskelse om hun vant i en av utfordringene!


Theese creations are not by me but made by my niece, mostly all by her self ~ aren't they lovely? She's fascinated by mermaids, no wonder really as she is named Ariel On her mermaid painting I helped with drawing a ocean floor behind the stamps, which I also placed, after her instructions to which ones and where. And as she watched me paint shadows on the stampmotifs I was doing alongside her, she then imitated shadows here :) 

The cards below are from 2013-2014. So fun to see her artistic skill progress as she gets older! Keeping within the lines and fussycutting is a good skill to have, and something you ought to be able to do by her age. She's actually turning 11 next month! So it would be a fun surprise if she won in a challenge with her creation

Tequila Sunrise!


One Tequila. Two Tequila.. Three Tequila... Floor!  

Har alltid vært glad i drinker, cider og likører ~ mye heller det enn øl.. Baileys er favoritten, Bloody Mary og friske citrus drinker. Om jeg drikker øl, er det gjerne Heineken, Carlsberg, Sol eller Corona med en lime oppi! Så jeg har et lite men godt utvalg av diverse flasker i barskapet for å mikse til med :)

Tequila Sunrise er både en klassisk drink og navnet på en god gammel film med Mel Gibson, Kurt Russel and Michelle Pfeiffer. Et par år etter filmen kom ut var jeg på ferietur på Gran Canaria med faren min, var vel sånn cirka 14 år da, og fikk min aller første drink ~ en (ganske svak) Tequila Sunrise med mini-paraply og stjerneskudd ;) Den har vært en favoritt siden ♥ Smaker av gode minner..  Flere gode 80'talls drinker med oppskrifter på her!

Ikke bare minner fra 80'tallet i denne bloggposten, har også lagd et kort med et motiv fra SSD, og jeg klarte den tabben å fargelegge kirsebæret grønt!! Tenkte nok på Bloody Mary med oliven først ~ og så malte jeg isteden drinken om til appelsinjuice med grenadine og tequila.. oppdaget ikke det grønne kirsebæret før jeg hadde tatt de første bildene! LOL sånn kan det gå.. Tok en rød distress marker over bæret, og med litt rød stickles ser ingen feilen.. bortsett fra at jeg viser det her.. ;) 
 Og er det ikke en fantastisk sizzix die jeg har fått meg, som kutter et slikt kort som dette? Så kjapt å lage ~ med flott resultat!
http://sassystudiodesigns.blogspot.com


I have always been fond of cocktails. Would much rather mixing drinks than a pint of beer! Baileys is my favourite, and Bloody Mary's ~ and any kinda citrus sort of drink. If I drink beer, I am very picky, like Heineken, Carlsberg, Sol or Corona with a wedge of lime in it.. So I keep a good stock of misc. bottles in my little bar-cabinet :)

Tequila Sunrise is both a classic drink and the name of a good old movie from the late 80's starring Mel Gibson, Michelle Pfeiffer and Kurt Russel. A couple years after the movie (I was about 14 years old) me and my dad was on vacation on Gran Canaria, and I got my very first 'grown-up-drink', a Tequila Sunrise (very weak though) with a mini umbrella and sparkler! It's been a favourite ever since. Tastes like good memories ♥ 

Found this cool website ~ Drinks Popular in the 80's, yey!

It's not just reminiscing in this post, I also have a card to show, as well as showing you my olive-mistake.. (see further up). I colored over the green with a red distress marker, and added red stickles to it ~ noone but you know it looked like an olive before.. LOL ;)

Isn't this a fab folding technique? And SUPER easy it was ~ really! It's all done by one sizzix die! How cool is that, didn't even have to measure and stress about cutting and scorelines, it's just one pass through the BigShot, and fold = Done! Well, almost.. Had to decorate it too ofcourse :P (video by the designer Lori Whitlock)

Once Upon a Time... Snow White


Jeg har vært kjempefan av Disney siden jeg var liten, eier stort sett alle de klassiske tegnefilmene, og det er ganske mange! Da det begyndte å bli en trend med 'ordntlige' serier og filmer basert på tegnefilmene for noen år siden, var jeg bare helt ♥ ^_^ ♥ jippi!
Serien 'Once Upon a time' er en stor favoritt, gleder meg kjempemye til nye episoder ~ sesong 5 kommer 27 september i USA, så kansje i begynnelsen av oktober kommer de på norske skjermer? :) Her er en par linker: sniktitt på ses.5. ~ The Dark Swan shall rise... o_O Dette blir spennende! Og for et tilbakeblikk på Emma Swans historie til nå.. 

Selvfølgelig har jeg en masse disney inspirerte stempler ~ og her er en nydelig Snehvit fra MilkCoffee, som er vår sponsor denne uken hos Creative Fingers. Temaet for #89. er som alltid 'Anything Goes', som betyr 'Lag-hva-du-vil' på vår utfordringsblogg, og du er hjertelig velkommen til å delta :)  


http://milkcoffeestamps.blogspot.nl/


I have been a big fan of the Disney movies since I was a child, and I own most of the classic animated movies, it's become quite the large collection by now :) When it became a trend some years back to make a lot of 'real' movies and series based on the Disney stories and older fairytales, I was like.. YES! Give me more! ;) 
One of my absolute favourite tv-series is 'Once Upon a Time', the fairytale villains and heroes are just fantastic in 'real life' ♥ Hopefully we will not be too far behind USA in the new season 5's showing schedule, it is supposed to air 27th of september. If u wanna take a peek at the new season, it's here: The Dark Swan shall rise. And to get a recap of Emmas story (the main character and Snow White and Prince Charmings daughter!) watch this one first! Really reccommend this tv-series if u are into fantasy and luv fairytales ♥


This week our sponsor is MilkCoffee Stamps for challenge #89. over at Creative Fingers! And the Theme is as always 'Anything Goes', create whatever you wish, and you are most welcome to join in! :) I have made a card with the fairest of them all.. Snow White! ♥

Pool Time Shaker Card


Jeg har visst fått en forkjærlighet for Simply Betty stempler i det siste, men de er jo bare helt skjønne ~ og denne karen er perfekt for et sommerlig kort! Det er flere år siden sist jeg har lagd et shaker kort, og måtte lete lengelenge for å finne noe å putte oppi ~ tilslutt tok jeg et smykke jeg vet jeg ikke kommer til å bruke, og vips shaker-kort! :)

EDIT: I am the top Tipper! :)

 

My Top Tip: Re-use old jewellery, or buy cheap when on sale, necklaces and earrings etc. and use them in your crafting! I didn't find any sequins or shaker pearls to fit my card colors today, so instead I gave an unused necklace a new life! I even re-used the clear plastic off a Spellbinder packaging, it was a bit thick so it was hard to get through the embossing in my Big Shot, so look for thinner plastic for shaker-windows if u plan to emboss! 
Instead of throwing out in the trash those empty plastic casings, save them ~ it's even great to store ez-mounted stamps on clear plastic! No need to shop for all of your crafting supplies ;)

Immortal Love ♥


Twilight har blitt en av mine favoritt serier i film og bok form ♥ Stor fan av fantasy og sexy vampyrer! ;) Om du er glad i denne serien også, må du absolutt gå til facebook siden til The Twilight Saga. Der ligger syv fantastisk bra kort-filmer basert på den offisielle illustrerte guiden til Twilight fra forfatteren Stephanie Meyer.  Mange med kjente skuespillere i rollene. Flotte tolkninger av Cullen familien, selv om man savner litt de man er vant til fra filmene..
Jeg har forresten også tidligere lagd kort inspirert av Twilight her om du vil ta en titt!
http://buysassystudiodesigns.blogspot.com 

I know Twilight is a typical either u love or u hate series ~ but I have always had nothing but love for it .. I'm not a big fan of the typical rom-com movies and novels, but throw in some fantasy and sexy vampires n such together with some steamy romance, and I'm totally hooked! ;)
I have made some Twilight cards before, if you want to take a look, here!

Did you see new Short Stories based on Twilight the Official Illustrated Guide by Stephenie Meyer? It shows the backstories of the Cullen family, very tragic and romantic... They can all be watched on the video facebook page of The Twilight Saga! Then go vote.. I had a hard time picking a fave, but 'The Mary Alice Brandon File' & 'Consumed' touched me deeply.. so so sad
