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 :)

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 ♥)

Mariner ~ Summer ATC's

 

Nå er jeg fullvaksinert! 👍 Det er en lettelse ettersom jeg er i et par av risikogruppene. Fikk andrestikket på onsdag, og har dritvondt i armen nå ~ men det tåler jeg fint. Gleder meg til å kunne dra på handletur igjen!

Er med i en Sommer swap på en facebook gruppe kalt Scrappesyken :-O, og lagde da disse sommerlige maritime ATC kortene ~ venter spent nå på å få fine ATC'er tillbake i posten! Har ikke vært med på mange bytter, eller lagd mange ATC'er før ~ dette er bare mitt tredje. Kjempemoro! De to første var i samme fb gruppa, når de arrangerte online scrappetreff. Vi er veldig heldige som kan ha kontakt med andre på nett i disse tider! ❤️

ATC kortene er mitt DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #213., hvor jeg er sponsor denne gang! Premien er et nydelig Gorjuss stempel og brads fra Storyteller.
Utfordringen varer i 4 uker denne gang og som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema. Velkommen skal du være
☺️

Yay! I'm now fully vaccinated! 👍 Got my second shot on wednesday, and it's super painful in my arm right now, but well worth it! Such a relief as I'm in a couple of the risk groups. Looking forward to be able to go shopping again!

I'm taking part in a Summer ATC swap in a norwegian facebook group, and I made theese fun nautical mariner little cards. They should be reaching their new homes right about now, and I'm exited to see what surprise cards I'm getting mailed in return! It's only my third time exchanging ATCs, the previous two swaps was in the same groups online scrap events. How lucky we are that in theese pandemic times we have the technology to be able to meet online! ❤️

My ATC cards is DT inspiration for challenge #213. at Creative Fingers ~ of wich I am the sponsor of this time ~ with a Gorjuss rubberstamp and Storyteller brads. It is an extra long challenge of 4 weeks summer schedule, and as always an easy peasy 'Anything goes theme'. You are more than welcome to join with your creations ☺️...

Monster Birthday Party!

 

Fikk første sprøytestikket idag med Pfizer vaksinen! Yay! Kjempevondt i armen, men det er ingenting for snart kan jeg leve et mer normalt liv. Har stort sett ikke vært utenfor huset siden pandemien startet, ettersom jeg har vært nødt å selvisolere pga av diabetes og andre helseplager. Selv om jeg liker å være for meg selv (og ikke er særlig glad i masse mennesker på en gang), så gleder jeg meg til å igjen kunne dra på shopping, spise ute på restaurant, og ha noen over på besøk! ☺️

Disse søte monstrene er favorittmotivet mitt fra Bugaboo stamps, (se tidligere monster kreasjoner her) vår sponsor denne gang hos Creative Fingers #211. DT bidraget mitt er et bursdagskort i knallfarger! Tror jeg var litt inspirert av Monsters inc da jeg valgte fargene LOL 😄

Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være ❤️

~ Happy Birthday ~
 

Yay! I got my first shot of the Pfizer vaccine today & my arm is hurting so much! Happy for the pain though.. Beeing in the risk-group with diabetes and other issues, I am so glad to finally be on track to a more normal life. Having to selfisolate since the pandemic began (I can count on one hand the times I have been into the city... mostly for dentist/doctor appointments) it will be nice to soon be able to go to a store and just browse or sit in a restaurant, and have people over to visit! Luckily I have always been the type of person that enjoy beeing on my own. Just.. not this much! 😉 

Theese adorable mosters are my alltime favourite motif from our sponsor Bugaboo Stamps at Creative Fingers! I have used Jodies monsters for many creations through the years as you can see here, and for my DT creation this time I think I was inspired by the Monsters Inc. movie when coloring, very colorful birthday card LOL 😄

For Creative Fingers challenge #211. it is always an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations ❤️
