Under the Sea... 🐠🐟


Har lagd en trio av kort med sommer og sjø tema ~ ganske clean & simple for min type kreasjoner, men tenkte jeg skulle prøve å legge bort distress inksene for engangs skyld.. prøve ut litt andre stilarter. Vi får se hvor lenge det varer! 😉
Kortene er DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #234. Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema. Jeg er sponsor denne gangen og har både et digistempel og et clearstamp sett som premie! Velkommen skal du være

I have made a trio of cards, with a summer & sea theme as my DT inspiration for this fortnights challenge #234. at Creative Fingers. Theese are very much clean & simple for my kind of creations, thought I would try not using distressing for a change and have a go at other kinds of card styles. We'll see how long that lasts... lol 😉

Unicorn Magic Tags 🦄


Lagde disse magiske enhjørning bokmerkene, eller de kan brukes til gavelapper/tags, som mitt DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #232. Er enda ikke helt i form, hodepine også, øynene mine er ikke helt på bølgelengde med hjernen min LOL 😜 se forrige bloggpost, fått meg nye briller! Så jeg scrappet for en gangs skyld ganske enkelt og kjapt med et digikit!

Vår sponsor denne gang er vår DT Anne Constantly-Carding! Hun selger digitale kits / ark pakker gjennom CraftsUPrint, og gir bort tre flotte digikits som premie.
Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være! 😀

Made some magical Unicorn bookmarks &/or tags as my DT inspiration for this fortnights challenge #232. at Creative Fingers.

REALLY hope my brain will catch on soon that I have gotten new glasses! LOL 😜

Our sponsor this time is our DT Anne Constantly-Carding! She's selling beautiful digital kits & paperpacks through CraftsUPrint, and three of the kits that the DT's has showcased this time will be the prize!

Showing my LOVE of embossing! 😍


Jeg var desverre ikke i form til å lage noe som DT inspirasjonsbidrag i forrige uke, men tenkte jeg kan legge inn i ettertid noen kort og en tag jeg ikke har fått blogget enda fra da jeg var med på Bikubens Vårscrapp online treff! Ingen tvil her om at favoritt teknikkene mine er tørr-embossing, heat-embossing og distressinks?
👓 Har fått nye briller, og for første gang er det progressive glass, noe som ikke har vært greit å venne seg til... følt meg sjøsyk og svimmel, migrene, og gått på dørkarmer og nesten ramlet ned trappa hjemme! Denne bloggposten har tatt over ei uka å skrive for bokstavene er litt 3D innimellom...
Så dette er
en påminnelse for Creative Fingers #231.
😊 Jeg er sponsor denne gang med mine digi stempler som premie, og som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema. Velkommen skal du være!

Unfortunately I was not able to create anything as DT inspiration for #231. at Creative Fingers last friday, having troubles with my eyes and a longlasting migraines on and off.. 👓 Got new glasses, wich now were progressive ones for the first time, and boy are they proving difficult to get used to!!! Been 'seasick', feeling naucious and dizzy, and going from moving my head to focus (instead of just shifting my eyes) has been the most straining.. It's starting to feel better now wich is such a relief! Won't miss almost falling down the stairs and stubbing my toes!!! ... and this blogpost has till now taken me more than a week to complete because the breaks from looking at the words on the screen is too much in 3D!


I will need to go back to get the glasses better fitting on my nose and over the ears, and the temple tips was tugging my hair out each time I took the glasses off, as the plastic tips was not flush with metal, hair got stuck so I had to wrap some dark colored washitape around them! .... yeah, I really wonder what the optician will say about the pretty black glitter washi when I go see them next week LOL! 😂

The challenge is still ongoing for about another week so this serves as a reminder post, adding theese retrospectively ~ and I get to show some cards and a tag I had yet to blog from the online crop event I attended last weekend of march
😊 Can u tell I LOVE to emboss? Both dry-embossing and heat-embossing are my favourite kind of technique, besides getting inky with distressinks 😍 I am sponsoring with 3x of my digistamps as prize, and as always, theme is anything goes. You are more than welcome to join with your creations 💗
