I ♥ tree frogs!


Har alltid vært fascinert av disse fargerike og søte froskene ♥ Samlet på postkort av frosker da jeg var yngre og lagde tilogmed et maleri basert på et slikt kort! ..Som en av brødrene mine likte så godt at han 'stjal' for å ha hjemme hos seg ;)


Derfor er jeg kjempeglad å få dette flotte digistemplet fra Beccy's Place, og å vise frem dette kortet som mitt DT-bidrag hos Creative Fingers. Stemplet er egentlig med en vanlig grønn frosk, så pupillen er feil vei i forhold til at jeg har malt i fargene til en trefrosk, men det var det første jeg tenkte på! Til utfordring #108. har vi som alltid et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema :)

I ♥ tree frogs! Always been facinated by theese colorful & cute little frogs. I used to collect postcards with frogs on them, and even made a painting based on one of the cards! ..Which one of my brothers loved so much that he sort of nicked it from me ;)
http://www.beccysplace.com/
So I was super happy to get this sweet Beccy's Place stamp to color up as my DT-creation at Creative Fingers. This is actually not supposed to be a treefrog so the pupil/slit is the wrong way, but I just wanted to ink it like one anyway! ♥ You are welcome to join us for this fortnights challenge #108. We always have 'Anything Goes' as a theme :)

Feline Friend Birthday card


Kortet mitt idag var kjempegøy å lage bakgrunn til.. SPLÆTT! Masse risting med malepenselen og noen spruter med distress ink sprayene mine ~ men det beste er vel selve splættene, de ser så stilig ut og er veldig enkelt å lage: Ta en Tim Holtz distress stains (med sånn svamp-påførings-topp) og dunk den hardt mot papiret så blekket spruter (lurt å legge arket/kortet oppi ei pappeske eller noe først), og det blir en utrolig kul effekt! ..Jeg 'gjenoppdaget' teknikken her forleden da jeg mistet flasken på bordet.. ble en masse søl, men fikk jo et a-ha øyeblikk ;) 

Vi har to flotte sponsorer i utfordring #107. hos Creative Fingers ~ Lemon Shortbread, & Bridget's Stamps som mitt nydelige motiv er fra. Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema :)

http://creativefingerschallengeblog.blogspot.no/


I had such fun creating this cards background! SPLAT! A whole lotta shaking, flicking and spraying ~ but the coolest effect was the splats! Don't they look cool? I 're-discovered' the technique when I dropped my distress stains bottle on my crafttable and made a right mess.. but it did give me an idea for my next project! So to do the same just remember to protect your work surface, like by putting the card base / paper in a cardboard box or something first, then forcibly put the dabber bottle against the paper, and the artistic cool-looking splats appears! I LOVE my Tim Holtz inks ♥
***SPLAT!***

Goth Fairy Ambrosia!


Wow! Tredje bloggposten i dag, tror øynene mine er blitt firkanta og hendene mine er vel helt ødelagt :P Men det var vel verdt ei våkenatt for å få alt inn. Beklager om jeg har vært litt fraværende rundt om bloggland, har ikke mye overskudd igjen nå..

Ble veldig fornøyd med dette kortet (sjeldent at jeg får en idé og klarer å fullføre uten å endre på alt så jeg ender opp med noe helt annet enn jeg startet med), ble akkurat sånn jeg så for meg!  ♥

Også denne gangen har vi to flotte sponsorer i utfordring #106. hos Creative Fingers ~ Holly Durr Art & Scrap N' Dipity som mitt motiv er fra. Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema :) 


Phew.. this is my third blogpost today.. Ever heard that you'll get square eyes if you watch the tv or pc for too long? :P *lol* what they use to say to children to make them go out and do something active for a change.. Well I am sure my eyes gotta be square by now, feels like it anyways! Up all night, and my fingers aches.. 
But I am very satisfied with how this card turned out ♥ Made the angelic looking fairy a goth makeover, and the idea I had for the card ended up like I pictured it in my mind, so that's a first! Usually NEver ends up looking like I plan! ;)

Tilda with Magnolia branch


http://papirplaneten1.blogspot.no/2016/04/utfordring-5-konfirmasjon-ogeller-varen.htmlPapirplanetens utfordring i April er 'Våren og/eller Konfirmasjon', og jeg har brukt vårens farger på mitt DT-kort! Været er enda ikke så flott som på bildet der, men man kan jo håpe! Sola har iallefall tittet litt frem og smeltet bort snøen! Som hovedmotiv har jeg søte lille Tilda fra Magnolia ♥  Vi håper du blir inspirert til å delta :)

Du finner dette og mange andre Magnolia stempler hos PapirPlaneten, og de har også flere gamle Magnolia ink blader om du ikke har snappet dem opp!  Kjempesynd at de sluttet å lage dem, svenskene hadde virkelig et blad jeg trodde kom til å vare! :( Krysser fingrene og tær for at det aldri kommer til å skje med mitt favoritt scrappeblad Ett Trykk ♥ 
http://papirplaneten1.blogspot.no/

This is my DT inspiration card for PapirPlaneten, an norwegian challengeblog and craft shoppe. The theme for April is all about Spring & Confirmation, I chose to do spring colors! The easter has just passed, the snow has melted away and the sun has even shown up once or twice :)


I'm finding that I absolutely can't finish off a card without adding some Glossy accents *lol* Anyone else has this need? Just look at the fab result on that butterfly.. *gasp*! :)

Fly Away with Me...


Jeg har faktisk tre bloggposter idag! Jeg vet, mot normalt ;) Blir vanligvis bare en i uka, men jeg har hatt flere prosjekter liggende nesten ferdig på scrappebordet og fikk endelig tid til å gjøre dem ferdig etter å hatt fullt hus med familie i hele påska ♥

Min tag / bokmerke er inspirert av fargene og følelsen av fri natur på bildet fra Viva Las Vegas Stamps sin utfordringsblogg litt lengre ned i posten.

..You are never too old to set a new goal, or to dream a new dream..

I actually got three blogposts on for today! I know, SO not the normal for me ;) Usually I only get one out each week, if that, with my health I don't often get to craft. And this easter I've had the house full of family all the time, so no go on all the half-finished projects on my desk!  Tons of fun though ♥


My tag (often used as bookmarks here) is inspired by this image from VLVS challengeblog, the colors, the clouds, the sky and feeling of the wide open nature!
