Phone Home!

Oæææ... jeg ser prikker når jeg lukker øynene! Bruker alltid å plukke frem en masse ark og pynt som passer til temaene til utfordringene eller stempeltrykket, og denne gangen tror jeg at jeg kommer til å drømme om prikker når jeg legger meg.. Trodde faktisk ikke jeg hadde så mye papir med 'dots' på! :) 
Teksten har jeg lagd selv i Paint, for jeg hadde ikkenoe stempel som passet til en gammeldags telefon ~ og jeg fant en font med ole brum bilder, perfekt til vintage kort.

I'm seeing dots when I close my eyes *lol* Have gone through my stacks of papers and found a ton of DP with dots on when i made this card, as well as dotty embellishments ~ didn't know i had as much! the text reads 'Phone Home!' and I made it in Paint, with an added pooh image font.

To get this 'splatter' watercoloring effect, the Digis was 'dipped' in blobs of Distress Ink (water spritzed all over the worksheet - see about 1:55 min. into this Tim's video on Youtube) ~ then dried with heat gun, repeated, and in the end also painted with Distress Inks ~ Tea Dye, Aged Mahogany & Vintage Photo.. My favourite Tim Holtz colors!

I enter my card in theese Challenges;

If the Shoe fits! :)

Fortsetter i samme sukkersøte fargetoner idag også, på et kort med sko-tema ~ som jeg ikke helt kjenner meg igjen i... Kjøper kun et par eller to i året jeg, og pensko med hæler er ikke i mine tanker engang ~ ryggen min tåler det ikke, og ikke skjønner jeg helt poenget heller, de er jo livsfarlige! ;)

 Inside detail

I'm still in Girly colors mode after yesterday ~ and the card I made is for a shoe-shoppaholic relative :) I myself have no idea why women would choose to wear those things willingly, dangerous high heels just waiting to give your feet a world of pain.. ;)
Sorry about theese photos, for some reason they came out darker than it should and colors were a little off too ~ will take new pics another day :)

I've created the cool Marilyn Monroe Shoe quote in Paint ~ and also the Barcodes below (freebies!). It's a little work, but you do get your own digital stamps and texts for your cards, so it's well worth the time!

I'm entering my card in theese great 10 challenges :)

Stamps/Images: Outlaws CFC digital freebie from Sandy Hugget aka. Sandi's Samples 'Vintage Rose boot R'. The StampSmith photostamp - Betty Grable. Land of Enchantment (Etsy shop) digital image from 'TaGSeTNo.9'. Made the texts in Paint with lots of different Fonts.

Creepy Color Purple!

If you're looking for the winners of my 36th BD Blogcandy, 
it's in the post below this one, here :)

Hadde lyst å virkelig utfordre meg selv med et kort, å lage noe nytt, for meg iallefall! Så jeg valgte på forhånd ut noen utfordrings blogger med temaer jeg ville bruke som inspirasjon. Ble fornøyd med resultatet også, selv om jeg til og begynne med var litt bekymret for hvordan jeg slulle lage motiv direkte på kortet, uten papirer og stæsj! OG i lilla!!! ;)

This was a really fun card to make! I chose theese themes beforehand to really challenge myself, and that I did! I think this is the first one-layer, no-designer-paper AND no-embellies card that I've ever done! And in Purple no less ~ a color I was not really a fan of, until now that is! Tim Holtz makes the most lushious colors, and I'm sure going to be using my purples more! :)

Sock-Monkey Shaker Card!

I have to make a quickie post tonight.. as I haven't got much time to get it in for a challenge, as usual ;) I made a shaker-card to go with a baby book that my sister Silje will get soon in the mail from me. She's not my sister by blood, but of heart This image fits her perfectly, she's a cheeky one..
She's she sweetest girl I know, but she has an amazing sense of humour wich is a wee bit sadistic... If you stub your toe there will be no end of the cackle laughter! Silje & Ragnar (she's multi-handicapped & Ragnar wich is a baby doll / puppet, follows wherever she goes ~ or rather wheels around) will surely appreciate the voice box on this book... *lol* I'm sure Silje will think it's him who's doin' the laughing :)

I'm entering my card at:
Stamps/Images: Digital image from Odds & Soxlets - Baby Emilia Copyright EricaMartyn CDACPC17 freebie. Magnolia 'BakgrundsSwirl Bröllup' rubberstamp. Papirloftet textstamp (=You are unique).
Papers: misc Bazzill cardstocks, and a plain passepartout card blank. Webster's Pages - Petite Papers 6x6 combo pack 'Postcards from Paris & Sweet as Cherry Pie'. Handmade paper from Notabene, and also some giftwrapping hearts paper!
Embellishments/Tools: Red microbeads. 3D foam tape. Nille dekór butterfly. QuicKutz Revolution die 'Sunburst' REV-0049. 
And I've used Tim holtz Distress Ink Markers & pads to color and distress the card & image, and I found out that the markers has excellent writing-nibs as well as the brush tip! :)

Sailboat trinket box

Hadde et ferdig stempeltrykk av en båt som passet så godt med fargene på arket jeg tenkte å bruke opp. Så det ble en liten sjømotiv eske! Hadde ikkenoe mal, bare kutt ivei.. og dermed ble det litt tull med lokket ~ men okay resultat til slutt :)

This box is made entirely freehand, using a cool reeeeally old paper, more than 5 yrs I think ~ and I've no idea who produced it (great quality!). Since I winged it on the measurements.. the lid had to be cut down with scissors to fit the text already stamped on... leaving jagged edges.. so the ribbon is mostly for covering up! *lol* :)
