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 June 20th.*



***

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. 

..

Blogcandy Contents ~ so far;

💠 Sizzix Texture Fades ~ Tim Holtz Embossing Folders 2PK - Eiffel Tower & French Script set.
💠 Alota Rubberstamps ~ USED! 10x motif stamps unmounted: misc. kids, bunny, ladybug? Plus 1x tiny fence motif ez-mounted & 3x text stamps (1 unmounted & 2 thats ez-mounted). The stamps are so old (retired stamp company) that I have no names for them!

💠 .....
💠 .....   




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!

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! 😊

Confirmation Easel Card & BlogCandy Winner!


 
En tid tilbake ble jeg ble spurt om å lage et konfirmasjonskort for en gutt som er glad i biler, ATV, moped ~ ting som sier vrooom! altså :) Jeg spør alltid etter hobbyer og favoritt farger, spesielt når jeg ikke kjenner mottageren. Også om det skal være plass for et gavekort eller penger, og det er det her. Jeg fikk flere foto av gutten fra han var liten, og brukte et baby foto som hoved motiv, etter å ha redigert ut en litt rotete bakgrunn - ikke at de hadde det rotete altså! Nei, det passet bare ikke med stoler og kjøkken innredning liksom.. Fant papirer i blå og bruntoner og stempler som passet. Å bruke deres egne bilder og interesser gir kortet en spesiell betydning, og slår alltid godt an ♥

Om du titter her etter vinneren av bloggcandyen.. så rull litt lengre ned :)



 ~ Good luck or Congratulations/Felicitations on the Confirmation ~

 

I was asked to make this card for a young boys confirmation day a while back. And whenever I get requests like this, I want to know about special hobbies/interests and favourite colors, and if the card shall have a money/giftcard pocket or not. For example, this boys interests are music and things that go vrooom! Colors were browns and blues. I got several photos of him as a child, wich I printed out on watercolor paper. A baby photo was edited to remove the 'noisy' background, and used as the main image. Using their own images gives it a special meaning for the giver and the recipient ♥



Now.. You were perhaps looking for the Birdy BlogCandy winner? Look no further! The winner is chosen via inlinkz to be #2. ..wich is... 

 
 Congratulations! ♥ I will send an email to you shortly.

Thank you so much everyone for entering! Unfortunately no other winners as there were so few entries, but I will have another sweet blogcandy up next week! Do try your luck again then :)

Vintage card ~ in stitches!

  

Kortet mitt er DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #164., og det flotte motivet er fra vår sponsor Morgan's ArtWorld. Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være :) Holdt faktisk på å ødelegge hele kortet når jeg skulle sy rundt sirkel rammen, alt var allerede limt på frontpanelet 
O.o Papiret revnet siden tråden og nåla var for tykk, men jeg fikk det heldigvis fikset med en tynn sirkel diecut plassert oppå.. Var nok en smule klønete å starte på det rett etter en heidundrene migrene :P

Ikke glem å være med på bloggcandyen min, om du vil! Enda noen timer igjen til den avsluttes. Og jeg blir å trekke vinnern over helga :)

Så dere andre semifinalen igår? Keino 'Spirits in the sky' ~ elsker den sangen! ♥ Har bare et par 'topp' favoritter for vinner av Eurovision i år, og den andre favoritten min har vært Chingiz 'Truth' Azerbaijan, nydelig! Begge gikk videre! Ønsker dem lykke til i finalen :)


http://creativefingerschallengeblog.blogspot.no/




My DT card for this fortnights challenge #164. at Creative Fingers has a gorgeous girl motif from our sponsor Morgan's ArtWorld. She looked so fierce that I found a dragon background to match her smouldering eyes! I had such trouble with the stitching.. originally I stitched around the frame ~ but the paper frayed because the needle & thread was way too thick, and I thought the card was all ruined!  
O.o But I luckily fixed it with a narrow frame diecut on top to cover the mess.. Probably shouldn't have started stitching right after a humongous migraine :P 
As always Creative Fingers is an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations ♥

And don't forget to enter my blogcandy! There's still a few hours left! And I will random select a winner over this weekend :)

Did you watch the second semi finale of Eurovision last night? So proud of Keino our norwegian artists with 'Spirits in the sky' ~  a fantastic song! I have only a couple top fave choices for winner this year ♥ the other is Chingiz 'Truth' Azerbaijan, awesome vocals! Both went through! Exiting too see what happens in the finale, best of luck! :)
