Fairytale Christmascards!


Her er noen julekort som var utrolig enkle å kjapt å lage ~ noen ganger trenger man det også! Spesielt rett før jul ;) 

Jeg elsker å fargelegge motiver, men her har jeg bare brukt motiver klipt ut fra design papirark eller ferdig farget digitalt motiv skrevet ut på kartong. Og masse resteark og pynt fra tidligere års julekort-laging, som jeg oppbevarer i en egen folder ~ den begynner å bule i sømmene så full er den! 

Det er også alltid en bra ting å resirkulere gamle julekort, så alle disse er gamle kjedelige julekort fra ca 20 år siden som istedenfor å bli kastet blir nye med fine ark og pynt ♥

Har du forresten sett Creative Fingers DTs ~ Christmas blogcandy? Jeg sponser et av de tre stempelsettene man kan vinne der, innen 10. januar! :)

Here are some christmascards wich was incredibly quick and easy to create, as most of the cardingredients were ready to add on. Sometimes you need those too ~ especially close to christmas!

I love colouring motifs, but here I've only used pre-colored ones printed out, or motifs cutout from designerpapers. Also a whole lot of scrap papers and embellishments from earlier years of christmas cardmaking. I keep those in a big folder, wich has now started to come apart at the seams... it's that full!

It's also a good thing to recycle old christmas cards, so all of the cardblanks here are generic boring old christmascards that has been sitting in a box since 20 years ago. Better to re-use instead of throw away! All new with some pretty paper and decorations ♥

More triple-layer-die ChristmasCards!



Lagde to julekort til med den nydelige 'Melissa' snøkrystall-lignende lag-på-lag-diesen fra Sue Wilson, som jeg blogget igår om, med et kort som hadde et julenissesledemotiv i midten. Det røde kortet her har et av de orginale die-motivene som fulgte med i settet men jeg tror nok jeg oftest kommer til å bruke den som en ramme.

(God Jul = Merry Christmas)


I have yet another two christmascards with my new gorgeous snowflake-ish 'Melissa' triple-layer-die from Sue Wilson. My red card has the original middle-dies that followed the set. You can see the previous blogpost here with the santasleigh die motif in the middle :)

Happy New Year! 🎉


 
🎇 Et riktig Godt Nytt år til dere alle! 🎇
Håper det blir både kreativt og fullt opp av gode opplevelser ♥

Rett før jul fikk jeg pakke i posten fra Joanna Sheen ~ handler ganske mye der, siden de har gratis porto for kjøp over £15., er oversiktlig og har mye flott i nettbutikken! 
Denne nydelige 'Melissa' snøkrystall-lignende lag-på-lag-diesen fra Sue Wilson falt jeg pladask for og tenkte at jeg kunne bruke en annen dies jeg har (også Sue W. design) som motiv i midten. Perfekt til julekort motiv! :)

(God Jul = Merry Christmas)

🎇 I wish you all a Happy New Year! 🎇
I hope it will be a good one, filled with creativity & joyful experiences ♥ 

Right before christmas I got a package in the mail from Joanna Sheen ~ wich is a webshop in the UK that I frequently shop from. Free postage when you buy above £15., very easy to shop and they have a lot of goodies and always something on sale!
I just had to get this gorgeous snowflake-ish 'Melissa' triple-layer-die from Sue Wilson as soon as I saw it, thinking that it would be perfect for christmascards and the use of another dies I had (also Sue W. design) with the santasleigh motif in the middle :)
