Happiness is.. a Friend like You ♥

Kortet mitt er DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #171., og de søte kattepusene er et motiv fra en av våre flotte sponsorer, Bugaboo Stamps. Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være :) 

Har prøvd meg på en skisse fra Bugaboo denne gangen, noe som må være årevis siden sist! Hjalp faktisk bittelitt på uvanen min med 'å alltid gjøre alltfor mye' når jeg lager kort.

Om du ser etter vinneren av bloggcandyen min, så kommer den enten i morgen eller søndag :)

"a Warm Hug for you"

My DT card for this fortnights challenge #171. at Creative Fingers has a supercute cat motif from one of our awesome sponsors, Bugaboo Stamps

As always it is an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations ♥

I've tried doing my card after Bugaboo's sketch, and it actually helped me with cutting down on my bad habits of doing 'way too much', and having a clear idea before creating. Has been many years since I last did a sketch, but think I did okay! 

Sorry about the bad photos, my good light bulb went out and had no replacement, so just imaging the colors are alot brighter... 

Now, you might be here to see who's the winner of my last blogcandy!? I'll have the announcement up sometime this weekend, maybe tomorrow :)

Add-on BlogCandy #2. 😊

Yay! 😊 It's even more crafty goodies to giveaway!
So... there was not a huge amount of entries on the previous blogcandy I had up, wich means that I still have lots of stuff to give away! And there will most likely be another one after this one.. lol. Yes my craftroom runneth over...

To repeat my own txt: This is a little different than 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 (and another box thats filling up) 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, papers, embellishments and other scrapbooking goodies 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, as well as some new stuff!

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 blogcandy!



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; updated sept.14th.

💠 Wags 'n' Whiskers ~ Ride 'Em Ryan. Unmounted red rubberstamp.
This stamp is very old and from an awesome artist named Chrissy Armstrong who now designs for Whimsy Stamps ♥
💠 Prima Marketing Inc. ~ 9" Stencils x5 Sublime Screens Mix 2. PRI881993 .
💠 Misc. flowers mostly from Prima, and a 'silver sequins' ribbon about 9" long (looks great when cut up too!).
💠 Panduro Hobby 'Tilda Antique silver' jar of sequins (see photo, did not count!).
💠 also in the jar now, some clear and opaque ArtStones! (unknown)
💠 Vintage beige w. red polkadots ribbon 3m x 1,5cm.
💠 a 'Vintage Sewing Collage' Rub-on sheet.

💠 a black Charcoal Pencil.

EDIT: Sept. 14th: There was going to be more to be added to this, but due to the lack of entries it will pass on to the next blogcandy, wich I will do some changes to... 
I do hope the winner will be happy with theese goodies anyways ♥ 

theese last added items not included in the main photo, but see below it.

💠 Hunkydory floral card topper or journaling type of cards x6 about the size of an ATC
💠 and 20++ small halloween sequins of unknown origin.

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.

No linkytool here this time, 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 September 15th. at 23:55/11:55 PM.
norwegian time ~ see my sidebar clock.

Yeti Christmas Tag!

Så nylig filmen 'Smallfoot' og ble inspirert til å male denne morsomme karen 😊 Norsk trailer finner du her ~ anbefales til alle, både store og små, kjempegod animasjons film! Den engelske versjonen er linket til lengre ned + bilde. 

Dermed ble det en tag (eller bokmerke) til jul som mitt DT bidrag denne gangen hos Creative Fingers #170. Yetien er et monster digi motiv fra vår sponsor Bugaboo Stamps. Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være

Har du sett nyeste bloggcandyen min? Ikke mange påmeldte, så du har en god sjangse om du vil vinne scrappegodis!

I recently watched the animated movie 'Smallfoot', and loved it SO much that I guess I got inspired when going thru my huge pile of printed digistamps ready to color! See the trailer for it on youtube here.

So my DT creation for this fortnights challenge #170. at Creative Fingers is a christmas tag (or bookmark) with a funny little pocket monster from our sponsor Bugaboo stamps. I colored him like he has a 'white' fur, like a yeti!

As always it is an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations 😊

Did you see my newest blogcandy? Not many entries yet, so join here if you want an excellent chance of getting some free goodies!

the back of the tag

Stamps/Images: Bugaboo Stamps 'monster pocket1' digistamp. Stampers Anonymous - Tim Holtz 'Stamptember 2017' rubberstamp set.
Papers: I prefer Canson Montvale aquarelle paper (200 g/m coldpressed) for my motifs. Designerpaper by Studio Light 15x15 paperpad 'Winter Trails PPWT98'.
Embellishments: White misc ribbons/fibers from Panduro Hobby. PlayBox silver dots Washitape. Gavebånd i sølv fra Notabene.
Tools: ProvoCraft Silent Setter tool. Eyelet unknown.

Stencils/Embossingfolders: Basic Grey & Sizzix Textured Impressions Embossing Folder 'Snowflakes'.
Dies: Sizzix 'Tim Holtz Bigz - Tags And Bookplates'.
Essentials/Adhesives: Sookwang Scor-pal wide tape. Aleene's original tacky glue.

Techniques/Mediums: I used misc. Ranger ink ~ Tim Holtz Distress Ink pads & markers to watercolor and distress image and papers. The tag background was made by smearing two oxide inkpads (faded jeans, broken china) on the recessed side of the embossingfolder and carefully placing the tag inside before running it through the BigShot ~ then I sprayed it alot with Mica spray. Cosmic shimmer mica powder plus water in a spraybottle. When dry (speeded up with heat tool), I sanded the snowflakes down a bit because some of the blue ink had seeped upon the raised snowflakes since I spritzed it so much. I use the sand-it gadget from Core´dinations. Then I added some Rangers Glossy accents to make his eye shiny!
