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.

Dreamy Fairy Anaelise


Ukens utfordring hos Creative Fingers #67. er sponset av Nikki Burnette, og som alltid er det 'Lag-hva-du-vil' ~ valgfritt tema! Unnskyld kornete bilder, fått meg ny mobil og selv om Xperia Z3 Compact er en super-mobil, så har jeg ikke funnet ut av den enda.. forhåpentligvis bedre bilder i neste bloggpost ;)

https://www.etsy.com/shop/aurella27

I'm having a bit of a quarrel with my new phone ~ Sony Xperia Z3 Compact ~ of how to get the best pics.. Not used to the settings yet! I'm just learning the ways of a smart-phone for the first time, which is prooving to be a little tricky ~ but in no time I'm find I'm addicted to the apps.. SOooo many apps! .. there's WordsWithFriends, Spotify, Instagram, Run Sackboy! Run, Minion Rush.. to name a few of my instant favourites ~ btw. my handle is Tindaloo on most stuff if u wanna look me up for a game or two ;) 
Theese were actually the best photos I took out of probably 20+... The camera on the phone is superb ~ 20.7 MP, so it's definitly my poor lighting in my scraproom that's at fault here (not my cameraskills *lol*).. I really need to make myself a shoebox-lightbox.. thanks for the tip Angelique!

Little Christmas Girl Card


Et gammelt julekort har fått nytt liv! Har brukt en ny teknikk (for meg) med Miracle tape og embossing pulver, ser nesten ut som krakelert maling etterpå! Julekrans motivet var for pent til å dekke over med nytt stæsj, så jeg rammet det isteden inn med litt pynt og dette søte digistemplet fra All Dressed Up.

http://www.etsy.com/shop/alldressedupstamps

Made a christmas card with an all new technique for me ~ miracle tape with embossing powder. Very fun, it sort of looks like crackled paint! I have altered an old plain and flat card, and given it new life with this cute Little Christmas Girl from All Dressed Up ♥ The motive with the wreath was too good to cover up, so instead I framed it better with the embossing, sweet embellishes, diecuts and sparklies! :)

I have used alchol ink on the heart-charm to alter the color ~ very useful for all those bits and bobs u have lying around that never fit in, color-co-ordinate to make them fit your project!

The detailed image to the left shows some of the lovely shiny glitter that comes from the H2O's :) Glossy Accents on details too. Heat embossed text. The background of the image was made with a stencil and I masked the image first. Got all of the Distress Stains from Blitsy this xmas, and finally got to play with them: Dusty Concord, Seedless Preserves, Picked Raspberry + sponged on some Tumbled glass & Broken China. I usually HATE using pinks n pastels, but with Tim Holtz' distressed colorpalette I find that I really LOVE them ♥
