Ladybug Hugs!


Bugaboo Stamps og ScrappyDew har sponset utfordring #125. hos Creative Fingers, og jeg har vært så heldig å få denne søte marihøne-familien fra Bugaboo ♥ Du er hjertelig velkommen til å delta. Det er alltid 'Lag-hva-du-vil' som tema! :)

Nå som sola er tilbake så passer det vel å ta frem de varme fargene igjen (selv om det fremdeles er iskaldt her nord).. Sola er 'drodlet' på arket med glossy accents, og gir både en morsom bakgrunn for motivet, tekstur og en lur måte å lime den detaljerte diesen fast med!

For this fortnights challenge #125 at Creative Fingers, we have two lovely sponsors, Bugaboo Stamps and ScrappyDew!
I have been so lucky to get this cute ladybug family from Bugaboo to ink up as my DT project ♥ The challenge is as always themed Anything Goes, and you are most welcome to join in! :)  


Now that the sun has made a return here in the northern parts of Norway, (still freezing though) it's time to pull out warm colors for my card. The funky sun is actually glossy accents, and it gives texture and an easy way to adhere the intricate diecut. Ladybug noses & antennas plus some hearts have also gotten glossy on them, while the text has been heat embossed. Finished it off with a spray of mica. LOVE adding shine to my cards!

Mermaids Magic Wish ~ Bookmark Tag


Jeg har ei niese som elsker havfruer, ikke så rart ettersom hun heter Ariel ♥ Denne tag'en tenkte jeg hun kan bruke som et bokmerke! Det er det jeg bruker mine tags til, leser mange bøker og blader og jeg hater 'eselører' ;)
Det var egentlig meningen jeg skulle lage denne til Ching Chou Kuiks fb gruppe, siden den var en freebie, men internett fjusket i går så da ble jeg for seint ute.. MEn blogges må den jo selfølgelig, ble veldig fornøyd med fargekombinasjonen her, Tim Holtz sine distress inks er sååå fine ♥ ♥ ♥ Gleder meg til å få tak på de nye DI Oxide blekkputene ~ for en effekt! Kjempelekkert ~ se videoen her ♥ 
(EDIT: fikk være med alikevel :)


A bookmark tag for my niece Ariel ~ who ofcourse is nuts about mermaids ♥
Sadly I was not able to enter my tag into the challenge it was created for ~ the digistamp was a CCK freebie, soOo pretty! But internet was out so I was not able to get it in until today. I added it to the CCK FB group anyways just to share, but ofcourse not entering the draw :)
(EDIT: My entry was valid said Bonnie, cool :)
https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=oa.1200104173359221&type=3
I was very happy with my coloring on this, Tim Holtz distress inks are always just dreamy to paint with.. And did you see? On Creativation (CHA) he announced new Oxide inkpads!!! ♥ AWESOMENESS ♥ Cannot wait to get theese to play with :)

Stamps/Images: Kort og Godt stempelplater M-151, M-165. Altenew 'Build-a-Rose' layered stamp (Simply Cards & Papercraft #149. freebie).
Papers: Bazzill cardstock. Plain white cardstock. Panduro hobby 'notepapir' vellum. Marianne Design 'Vintage Romance' 6x6 pretty papers bloc.
Embellishments/Tools: Spellbinders™ Shapeabilities Card Creator 'Tudor Rose Card Front S4-502', Nestabilities 'Labels One Small die'.

Techniques: I always use my Scor-Pal to score n fold my cards. Usually I'll use only Rangers distress inks on every edge of the card - but to get a chalky finish I've used only Prima 'attic dust' chalk ink. And the fabulous shiny silver you see is Viva decor - Inka Gold 'Platinum'. To glue the panel and elements, Gel matte medium and Rangers glossy accents. Heat tool and clear embossing powder from Ranger ink.
I used HeroArts ombré inkpad 'light to red royal' on the layered Altenew rose stamp. I really got to get more of these kind of stamps, so much fun when you have a Misti tool to position the stamp correctly each time :)

Baby ~ Love is in the air


Denne lekre 'Baby kommode kort' diesen fra Sizzix og Lori Whitlock kutter ut hele kortbasen, så det er bare å folde det sammen og pynte i vei :) Har ikke prøvd den i Cuttlebug, men den passer kjempefint i min BigShot med den lange plattformen og platene. 
Hovedmotivet er fra Whiff of Joy som dessverre har sluttet som butikk, men mange fører fremdeles stempler fra dem (til det går tomt), så det er bare å søke rundtom om det er noen stempler derfra du må ha! PapirPlaneten har et ganske stort utvalg ♥


This is the most awesome cardcreating die ever! ♥ It scores and cuts a standing up dresser card, with several fun baby diecuts (image of the die set further down below). Created by Lori Whitlock & Sizzix, it fits through the BigShot with the extended platform. The width of the card is 5 1/2", so when folded you can use the same envelopes as for your 6x6 cards :) 
My main motif is a supercute bird from Whiff of Joy stamp, who no longer make stamps, but there are still many shops who still have them in stock if you search around for it ♥
 
'When a child is born, a star lights up in the sky/heavens, 
and gives a light/warmth to many hearts' ♥
 
a little is tag poking out from under the pocket/text area,
maybe there will be a gift card or hidden poem?
