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! :)

I seem to do alot of Simply Betty Stamps cards lately, but who could blame me.. they are so frickin' CUTE! ♥ ♥ ♥ I really enjoyed coloring up this sweet summer boy :)

Top Tip Tuesdays
~ Bingo: Embossing/Sent./Dies! +Top Tip! (below) [Aug. 3rd.]

 

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

Simply B Tag & a Doodle Flower freebie!


Jeg har begyndt å tegne igjen! Var en ivrig liten kunstner da jeg var barn, spesielt alver og sopper som man kunne bo i, fantastiske verdener jeg drømte meg bort i... og da jeg lærte å skrive ble det mange rare historier :) 
Som tenåring drodlet jeg overalt i skolebøkene..ikke alltid en suksess hos lærerne.. LOL :) Siden dengang har det vært veldig sjeldent at jeg har tegnet, annet enn sammen med niesene mine  ♥
Etter at jeg begyndte med kortlaging som hobby for ca.10 år siden, har jeg foretrukket å fargelegge stempler fra mye flinkere kunstnere enn meg.
Betty 'QueenofHalloween' Roberts er en av mine favoritter, damen bak SimplyB Stamps, og hoved motivet på tag'en min!

http://simplybstamps.net/
Drodleblomsten min på baksiden av tag'en har jeg tegnet med micron penner, og scannet så inn på dataen ~ slik kan jeg skrive ut den om og om igjen, som et digi-stempel! Her har jeg skrevet ut og malt på akvarellpapir. Har planer om å kansje lage noen for salg, får se om det er interesse for det jeg lager først ;) Du finner drodleblomsten som en freebie litt lengre ned i bloggposten ♥
  
front and back view of my tag 

I have begun drawing again! :) As a child I used to draw aLOT, and fantasize about small people living in mushrooms.. whimsical flowers and fairies I was very fond of creating, even made up my own stories too.
As a teenager my diaries and schoolbooks were full of doodles, but as an adult I have very rarely made my own drawings, prefered to use the much more awesome artwork of others in digi and rubberstamps when I begun papercrafting. Like the art of Betty 'QueenofHalloween' Roberts, the creator of SimplyB Stamps and the main motif on my tag!

I have been very inspired by all the zentangle/doodle/zendoodles arts or whatever they're called, that is so popular and seems to be everywhere u look nowadays. I got bit by the drawing-bug too, and bought some really good staedtler & micron pens. The result was many shrooms, frames and flowers like the one I have on my tag, scanned and made into a stamp, and if you like it you are welcome to use it! ♥ If there is interest for my doodle drawings I'll do more freebies from time to time and perhaps even make some for sale if I figure out the how-to's ;) Here are some examples of my doodles, what do you think? Worthy to digitize?

Baby and Bunny


Dette må være et av de søteste baby-stemplene ever! ♥ Maurie Manning tegner fantastiske illustrasjoner, småbarn, tenåringer og gamle mennesker ~ som ellers er vanskelig å finne så god kvalitet og variasjon av i stempelverden :) 

http://www.mosdigitalpencil.com/

This sweet baby image is from the fantastic artist Maurie Manning, if you're looking for awesome digistamps, go visit Mo's store :)

Top Tip: THIS is an image that I originally ruined completely.. as u can see ;) I really messed up the bunny, but luckily I had another printed out in the same size, so I painted n paperpieced it, and it looked even better! Just remember to think how to fix a 'ruined' image before throwing it away, like with a flower or other embellishment, or paperpiece :)

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!
