Keep on Swimming ~ Reveal Wheel Cards


Har vært litt stille her på bloggen... Helsa og energien til å lage ting har vært helt på bunn... Men nå har jeg fått hjem 'bestemorsstolen' min (god ergonomisk arbeidstol arvet fra ho bestemor) og etter scrappetreffet jeg var på forrige helg har mojoen kommet tilbake føler jeg! Det var online selvfølgelig, i regi av Scrappesyken på FB. Så moro!

Kortene mine idag er DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #204. Vi blir sponset av vår egen DT Angelique, med et flott clearstamps sett! Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være :)


I added this snippet on youtube of the reveal wheel effect :)


So its been quiet around here... my health and mojo have been very low, but with getting my 'grandma-chair' (inherited ergonomic chair) back from repair, and a bunch of new extremely fun dies, I feel up to making again. In fact last weekend I made several cards and some ATC's during an online craft-event with 50+ other norwegian crafters. Those creations I'll be putting in another blogpost soon :)

Theese Keep on Swimming cards were SO much fun to create, with the interactive die set called 'Reveal wheel' from Lawn Fawn. 

They are my DT inspiration for this fortnights challenge #204. at Creative Fingers, and we're sponsored by our own DT Angelique this time with a gorgeous clearstamp set. As always it is an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations ♥..


I enter my cards in theese fab Challenges: [Ends on]
As you like it ~ Favourite way to cut an image & Why:
Fussycutting ~ because it is relaxing to just sit n cut, u have control over how much or how little of the white edge shows ~ and also because I prefer to use my money on other stuff than co-ordinating dies - except for special kinds of dies that is interactive or that comes in handy for the set.

TIME OUT #183. ~ Different: doing interactive cards is kinda differerent from what I normally would do, and the aquariums. They're not something I would have at all. Looks cute on a card though!
