WCD ~ Christmas cards 🎄


Lørdag var det 'World Cardmaking Day' og jeg lagde to kort til TPC Magazine sitt facebook event scrappetreff. Artikkel med Galleri og Top3 blir lagt ut den 10 oktober, med enda en vinner ~ og jeg kommer til å oppdatere med link her. De første vinnerne var lagt ut i egen bloggpost her på søndag kveld :)

Oppdatering: Topp 3 og Galleri fra TPC! Disse kortene er i Galleri: Teknikk.

Kjempemoro å delta og se alt det flotte som ble lagd iløpet av dagen ♥ Mye å se på rundt om på nett denne helga også, men jeg var spesielt fascinert av Tim Holtz sin live på youtube med de nye hus-diesene! Oj, det blir hardt for lommeboka, men det blir nok julegave til meg selv ;)

Det var tre utfordringer, og jeg valgte en av dem ~ Teknikk: Fargelagt motiv på kort ~ og distress ink med akvarell maling som er min favorittmåte å fargelegge stempeltrykk på. Ble to julekort for det trenger man alltid flere av! Og motiv denne gangen er med søte Penny Black og hÄnglar motiv ♥ ♥ ♥

  🍂 🍁 ❄️ 🍁 🍂
 

 


Saturday was the 'World Cardmaking Day' and I participated in a Cyber Crop that the scandinavian TPC Magazine held in an event on Facebook. There were so many awesome creations and I had fun making theese two cards for one of the three challenges ~ Technique: Make a card with a handcolored motif.
Winners was chosen >on this blogpost here< sunday night, and on october 10th there will be another winner with a gallery and top3 chosen creations at TPC wich I will update here with a link. 

UPDATE: Top 3 and a Gallery was posted at TPC here.

There were lots of fun lives throughout saturday and the rest of the weekend dedicated to WCD, however the one video I was most facinated by was the Tim Holtz live on youtube. Those little house dies are amazing! Definitly going to have to give them to myself for christmas! :D

I ended up making two christmascards, because you always need more of those! The watercolored motifs are of the supercute Penny Black and the sweet girl is an old hÄnglar & stÄnglar stamp ~ now renamed as hÄnglar & Wings ♥

As You Like It ~ Favourite Autum Or Winter (& why)! [
Oct.6th.]
AUTUMN maybe a bit more than winter?.. Both are actually equally my fave seasons though, far above summer and spring, but if pressed, I choose autumn/fall due to the gorgeous nature colors, sleeping better (land of the midnight sun here u know, too bright in summer), the temperature of the season is juuuust right for me. Not too hot, not too cold. Mosquitos be gone! Also ~ Halloween time (not celebrating but love the genre) is in the autumn! :)
Arty Divas ~ September: Anything Goes

Steampunk Album for my ATC's!

 

Lagde meg et flott ATC album da jeg deltok på Hobbygarasjens digitreff første helga i september. Det ble flere kort også, men de er til en annen bloggpost, dette ble jeg aller mest fornøyd med!  Steampunk er mitt favoritt tema å skape i ~ og vintage gull & alle bruntoner, det er noen av mine absolutte topp favoritt farger! ♥

Albummet mitt er DT inspirasjons bidrag hos Creative Fingers #215., som er sponset denne gang av vår DT Angelique. Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være :)

http://creativefingerschallengeblog.blogspot.no/

 
 
 
 
I attended a cyber crop (private fb event) held by a norwegian craft store Hobbygarasjen first weekend in september ~ I made several cards, but this is the creation I am most proud of! Steampunk is my favourite theme to create in, and all of the brown & gold hues are probably my top fave colors! ♥

My ATC album is my DT inspiration for this fortnights challenge #215. at Creative Fingers, wich is sponsored with a cool prize by our DT Angelique. As always it is an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations :)

🍂 🍁 🍂 🍁 🍂 🍁 🍂

 

I started out with an album, that I think was made for those game cards that kids collect, wich is the same size as ATC's. I got a couple of those albums really cheap too, gotta love a good deal! Not sure yet what theme I will give my second album, still got a long time to fill up this one as I have only participated in 3 swaps so far.


I made use of the frame it already had on the front and added some gold glitter washi, tucking it under the sowed edges, to hide the wizard images edge. Next I measured out the papers chosen to fit inside the frame, ripping and tearing the edges. Sandpaper and distressing tools are key to getting the frayed old look I was going for! Distress oxide inks, paints, sprays, dye inks, pastes & wax ~ whole lot of mess on my desk! Fun times :) Specifics of materials used coming up in the info section at the bottom of the blogpost.


I have lots of leftover gears from an earlier mixed media project ~ my Steampunk Mushroom House DIY Glue Gun Holder! I just LOVE the rusty effect of Finnabairs pastes. Go >here< to see that blogpost tutorial :)


..and here is a closeup of some of the cogs on the ATC album.


The album itself has a nice textured leather feel to it (faux leather) and it was very easy to add paint and waxes to, just by rubbing it on with my fingers.


 

a little peek inside my ATC album :)

(the ATCs with anchor, bats and shoes are mine,
rest are from swaps with other crafters ♥)
