Condolence ~ Kondolanse kort

Da jeg så denne nydelige fuglebur-digien som freebie hos CDAC, tenkte jeg med en gang det ville passe til et kondolanse kort, skrev det ut og glemte helt av det! Og ganske så typisk.. har jeg sittet og lagd kort i siste liten for innlev.frist igjen ;)

Monster Truck goes Vroom!

Et kort til en liten eller stor gutt! Det er Uutrolig mye plunder med småe QK deler.. Hadde ikke tenkt å bruke fullt så mye tid på kortet som jeg gjorde. Råstilig bil ~ for tålmodige mennesker! ;) Har funnet en flott ramme digi hos Dustin Pike som passer bra på denne typen kort, vanligvis går jeg for 15x15 cm. kort, men A6 str. funker også veldig greit ~ spesielt når jeg har et lager med kjedelige Hippopotamus kort..

A card for a little guy or a big one who digs cars and anything that goes Vrooom! This is an awesome QK die, but boy it's a really tricky construction getting all those parts together, patience is key here.. ;)

Amalia's ♥ Baby Carriage

Jeg har lagd en barnevogn til min søte niese Amalia, som kom til verden den 2. april, og dermed er ikke jeg alene om å være 'en forsinket aprilsnarr' som jeg har hørt hele livet *hehe* Jeg hadde bursdag den 5., og lille Amalia var jo en gledelig tantepresang! ~ vil du være med på bloggcandyen min å feire?  
Jeg brukte en tutorial fra Magnolia Ink bladet, mere info nederst i innlegget.

I have made this baby carriage for my sweet little niece Amalia ♥ who was born just a couple of days before my birthday ~ so it was double celebration time in my blogcandy ~ join up here! I used a tutorial in Magnolia Ink magazine to make this, see info at the bottom of the post.

I'm entering my creation at:
Bunny Zoe's Crafts #23. ~ Ribbon and/or twine.
Crafts & Me Challenges ~ Going 3-D (can't get more 3D than this *lol*)
Divas by Design #30. ~ Charmed I'm sure.. 
I brake for Challenges ~ Anything but a Card!
Moving along with the times #144. ~ Shabby Chic and/or Vintage. 
Paper Sundaes #116. ~ Anything Goes.
Sugar Creek Hollow #7. ~ Diecuts and/or Punches. Edit: I got Top Picked!!
The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop #9. ~ To Die for!

Stamps/Images: PapirDesign Clearstamp sett 'Barnedåp'.
Bazzill cardstocks.
And some recycled brown packaging cardboard (to stiffen up the button diecuts). Designer papers from Tim holtz idea-ology paper stack 'Vintage shabby'.
Embellishments/Tools: Kort og Godt - rose buds. Papirloftet - curly gardenia flowers. Panduro Hobby velvet ribbon, and scrapbooking moments adhesive pink pearls. Notabene bookstore JB pink pearl brads. Large open bear charms from Stamp and Create. Notabene pink rhinestone wings. Lace with white ribbon is from a local florist store. QuicKutz 2x2 die 'leaf RS-0101'. Papertrey Ink 'Buttoned up #1 die'. Spellbinder Nestabilities 'Petite Scalloped Circle Large'. Magnolia Doohickey's Dies 'Tilda Lace'. And for the handlebar, I've recycled some blank plastic from some packaging material. All edges are distressed with Tim Holtz distress inks (tea dye I think) & tools.

PS: Jeg må absolutt presisere at jeg ikke har funnet på noe oppskrift til denne selv, jeg har sett slike vogner online men ikke hatt anledning til å lage en før nå. Jeg ble inspirert av den nydelige barnevogna i Camilla S. sin tutorial for Magnolia Ink i blad no.1 2012, og har lagd min egen barnevogn med litt andre mål. Og nå når jeg sitter og skal blogge kreasjonen min, så leter jeg etter en link å legge ved her, men fant ingen ~ derimot ble jeg litt lei meg når jeg så noen fine og kreative bloggere i klinsj.. Opphavsretter er en vanskelig ting i scrappeverden, ettersom man har sett det meste før rundtomkring på blogger og blitt inspirert av det, og deretter lagd sine egne versjoner. All ære for Mayas flotte barnevogner, men jeg tror ikke Camilla har 'stjelt' men vært inspirert av flere kilder på nett som hun sier her :) 

BTW: I have to specify that I've not come up with the idea of this babycarriage myself, but I've seen carriages like this online, and when I found the tutorial in Magnolia ink magazine no.1. 2012, by Camilla S. I decided to make one for my niece. Searching for a link to add to my post just now, to give credit ~ I was saddened to see the controversy, all honour to Maya, luv your carriages, but I also think that Camilla was simply inspired by many different bloggers, and her tutorial don't seem to rip off anyone. Anyhow, awesome inspirations sources to other crafters, hope to see lots more crafty creations and tutorials from both in the future :)
