Imagine.. Alien Love Monsters!

..We come in Peace.. / ..Vi kommer i fred..

Hehe! Det Måtte bare bli et sci-fi kort med dette motivet! Hadde med meg favoritt kruset mitt inn på scrapperommet for å få inspirasjon til fargeleggingen. En tidligere brevvenninne fra Riga i Latvia sendte meg det over 15 år siden ♥ Hadde faktisk over femti brevvenner en stund.. men så begyndte jeg med scrapbooking og ble hekta på kortlaging, så ble det dessverre ikke tid til brev lengre... dessuten var det så lite å skrive om etter jeg ble ufør ;)
Noen av diecuts'ene og det ene monstret blir et senere prosjekt.

De morsomme monster motivene er fra Bugaboo Stamps, vår sponsor i denne ukens utfordring hos Creative Fingers #112. Og som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema :) 

My DT card for this fortnights challenge #112. at Creative Fingers is full of alien monsters! As always it is an 'Anything goes' and you are more than welcome to join with your creations.
I luv all things sci-fi and just one look at this fun image from our fab sponsor, Bugaboo stamps ~ I saw cute little aliens! :)

If you take a look above in my scraproom pic, u will see my fave mug from an old penpal (a girl in Riga, Latvia), which inspired the bright colors. It's actually more than 15 yrs old, the mug! Once I had 50+ penpals, but the crafting took completely over as my main hobby ♥ ♥ ♥

Had a few leftover monster and aliens I didn't end up using, so there will be a similar themed project soon I think!

WeddingCard & my new MISTI!

Papirplanetens Juni utfordring #7. har Bryllup som tema. Motiv og tekst stemplene jeg har brukt på mitt staffelikort er fra Kort og Godt sine flotte stempelsett, som du kan finne her hos Papirplaneten :) Vi håper du blir inspirert til å delta! fylte 40 år i april og brukte en masse penger på meg selv ;) Så jeg har nylig fått flere store scrappestæsj pakker i posten, og endelig har jeg en MISTI! Har ønsket meg en kjempelenge etter å sett så mange videoer på youtube, som denne fra Jennifer McGuire ♥ og den er helt utrolig! Ville aldri fått til et så helt sort stempeltrykk av brudeparet uten den, måtte nemlig stemple tre-fire ganger, og den stemplet nøyaktig på samme plass hver gang! Kjempedyr, men vel verdt det :)

Har du sett bloggcandyen min? Mye flott scrappe godis der ~ CD-rom med massevis av søte bilder å printe ut, Alve stempelsett, Digistempel fra meg, og to QK dies! ♥ Bare en uke igjen nå, og alle kan delta!
inside and back detail

I am super happy about my latest scrapping stash purchases (turned 40 in april so I went on a huge shopping spree ~ all just for me!), and especially my new MISTI stamp tool. Let me tell u ~ AMAZING! :)
I have been wanting this for a long time, ever since watching Jennifer McGuire demonstrate it, and many others since. This here youtube shows the altenew blooms & the MISTI tool working in perfect harmony!

My easelcard today is DT inspiration for PapirPlaneten, an all norwegian challengeblog and craft shoppe. The June theme is Wedding
I sure would never have gotten such a crisp black stamped image of the bride & groom couple if not for the MISTI ability to stamp several times on the excact same spot. Expensive yes, worth it OH YES!

Cannot wait to try out all my other new goodies too ♥ Here are some of them!

By the way .. I have some yummies for u as well! Have you seen the Blogcandy I have going on? There is a cd-rom collection of Happy Hoppers & Gruffies (from House-Mouse), QK-dies and a fab Fairy Clearstamp set! Plus a digistamp from me ..and It's open to every crafter worldwide ♥ Hurry though, only one week left!
