Summer Add-on Blogcandy!


[..Pinned at the top ~ scroll down for new posts..]

 
YAY! Its about time to give away some crafty goodies again! 😊
This is a little different than my other blogcandies in that I will be adding stuff to the blogcandy each time there are new entries, and update the photo as it progresses! I have a big box of stuff thats up for grabs, so it's going to be one awesome prize in the end for our lucky winner!
(box not included)

Here you will perhaps find treasure in old discontinued stamps, that maybe is hard to find, and scrapbooking papers that's definitely not been in stores for years! There are lots of nicely used stamps that I am hoping will find a new home, like Magnolia, Elisabeth Bell, Prima, VLVS, Sugarnellie, WOJ +++ as well as some new stamps, crafty goodies & embellishments. I am still finding plenty of duplicates in my stash while organizing, so still adding stuff to my giveaway box ~ as what is not won this time will pass on to the next candy.

Ofcourse there's something really neat to start off the add-on blogcandy for the summer, embossingfolders! :) *Contents Updated July 4th.*





***

The contents of this blogcandy is as you can see in the above photo.

Just click on photos to see in bigger detail. I will add individual photos if I have them, and a list of what goes into the candy.

This BlogCandy is open to all you wonderful crafty people who stop by my blog ~ I will ship worldwide ~ and while I would appreciate it if you were a follower of my blog, it's not necessary to win ♥ But please ~ ONE entry each & NO Non-crafters or Candy only bloggers, that would not be fair!

The only thing I ask of you is that you spread the word by mentioning this candy with a link to my blog, feel free to use the blogcandy photo, (or the small one in my sidebar) either on your own blog (sidebar is fine) or other, like a pin, instagram, facebook, twitter etc.


A little bit different blogcandy this time as I am keeping it open almost all summer long ~ and adding to it as well. Plenty of time to enter! So no linkytool here, you will have to leave me a comment on this blogpost with your link/page!

I still have ton of stuff I need to de-stash from my craft room. There will be many Blogcandy RAKs throughout the year ~ so if you don't win, there soon will be another chance :)

And here is a fun BONUS! If there is more than 30 entries, I will also pick three more winners who will get a freebie digistamp each (of their choice) from my etsy shoppe! So do get the word out 😊
 


  

The candy will end on July 31st. at 23:55/11:55 PM.
norwegian time ~ see my sidebar clock.
 

♥ 🎈 Good Luck! 🎈 ♥
& Have a Fantastic Summer!

Butterfly fairy 🦋


 
Akvarellmalte et vakkert 🦋 digistempel (side) som mitt DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #168.  Motivet heter 'Butterfly fairy' og er fra vår flotte sponsor Christine Karron! Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være :)

Har fremdeles en super bloggcandy som det er kommet masse stempler og andre flotte greier oppi ~ sjekk den her :) 


http://creativefingerschallengeblog.blogspot.no/




My DT creation for challenge #168. at Creative Fingers is a gorgeous butterfly fairy coloringpage, wich I printed in about A5 size & watercolored with Distress inks & Twinkeling H2O's. The motif is from our fab sponsor Christine Karron ♥ 
As always it is an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations :)
 
I'm going to color another CK fairy for the reminder blogpost ~ this challenge will last longer than usual since its summer holidays, and I'm thinking that I might add them to an artjournal spread later on.. we'll see. Don't really want to crop it and put on a card, keeping it for myself after all that work I put into it! lol ;)

I still have an awesome blogcandy to give away! Lots of stamps added to it, and other neat crafty stuff :) Check it out here!

Almost ruined it! Still not too happy with her hair, kind of lost the definition of the dreads because of too dark watercolors.. then I splattered dirty water all over it! Jikes! Was able to fix it though, only spot I could remove was on her cheek, so now she's got a beauty mark :)

Hello Sweet Watermelon! 🍉

 
Endelig er sommer'n her! 😎 Og når varmen kommer er det godt med saftig søt vannmelon.. og litt sukker drysset på! Kortet mitt er DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #166., og den søte jenta er et digi motiv fra vår sponsor Bugaboo Stamps. Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være :) 

Jeg fant noen dies som passet perfekt til temaet, kuttet dem ut på akvarellpapir, og malte dem og motivet med distress inks & twinks (se info nederst). 

Mye mindre 'dilldall' å male diecuts'ene enn å begynne med å kutte ut flere forskjellige farger og så klippe + paperpiece dem! 

 🍉   🍉   🍉

Har du sett nyeste bloggcandyen min? Mye spennende innhold i den boksen! 
Summer Add-on Blogcandy! 😊


http://creativefingerschallengeblog.blogspot.no/




It's been taking quite a while for summer to come all the way up north in Norway.. but at last, summer is here! 😎 And when the heat comes, it's so refreshing with some watermelon slices.. with some sprinkled sugar on top ♥ 

My DT card for this fortnights challenge #166. at Creative Fingers has a sweet main motif from our sponsor Bugaboo stamps, and as always it is an 'Anything goes theme'. You are more than welcome to join with your creations :)

I found some dies that fit the theme perfectly, cut them out on watercolor paper, and painted those and the main motif with my distress inks and twinks (see detailed photo above, and info at the bottom of the post). So much less hazzle to just paint the diescuts instead of cutting out a dozen colors and then paperpece them together!

Did you see my new blogcandy? So much fabulous goodies inside that box! Join here to find out ~
Summer Add-on Blogcandy! 😊
