Fairy & Toad Step-Up card

 
Denne gangen har vi to kjempeflotte sponsorer ~ Bugaboo Stamps & Rebecca Sinz fra ElvenStar Art ~ for Creative Fingers sin utfordring #133.  
Må bare beklage at DT bidraget mitt er en par dager på etterskudd, har hatt mye plager med hendene mine. (psoriasis++) Skulle ønske jeg var god på å lage kjappe clean & simple kort, men dette motivet fortjente absolutt mere tid og bling! ♥ 

Jeg har brukt et Sweet Pea Stamps gummistempel fra Rebecca Sinz. Motivene hennes kan kjøpes som digitale stempler på etsy, og dette motivet fins som 'Coloring Page Printable Fairy Toad Frog Fantasy Art'. 
Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være :)

Sorry for beeing a couple days late with my DT card for this fortnights challenge #133. at Creative Fingers. Having dealing with alot of health issues lately, and my hands has been very painful (psoriasis++), super difficult to craft when you can't bend your fingers ;) 

We are again so lucky to have two sponsors: Bugaboo Stamps & ElvenStar Art ♥ and as always it is an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations!


I bought a new fun Balloon Step-Up Sizzix Die (it's on sale right now!) and thought it would be perfect to use with the toad and fairy ♥ The round shapes on each fold is actually meant to have balloon diecuts on them, but it can be used for many themes :) 
You can see the designer of the die Stephanie Barnard show it here on youtube.
The gorgeous IndigoBlu gilding flakes has been added to the diecuts the quick and easy way ~ super strong adhesive tape! 
Think it must be the most time consuming card I've ever done, started it a week ago! Although it's an easy fold card to make with the sizzix die, cranking the bigshot was the worst on my hands, and was only able to spend 15 minutes in my craftroom at a time. On the bright side, it turned out very pretty! :)

My main motif is a rubberstamp from Rebecca Sinz, the artist behind ElvenStar Art. It's an old Sweet Pea Stamp, but they have since closed shop, and are not so easy to find anymore. She sells some of her motifs as digistamps and coloringpages (find the fairy toad image here) in her etsyshop linked below :)

Squirrel Summer Greeting

 
Så, endelig er sommern kommet til Nord-Norge også... Men huffameg, det så varmt at jeg smelter vekk! Hetebølgen fra Russland kunne jeg gjerne ønsket søringene fikk istedenfor oss.. Kroppen min tåler ikke 26+ grader (og 35 i sola!), er allerede plaget av hormonelle hetebølger, så jeg må bare beklage til alle som er hoppende glade ~ for jeg ønsker denne hetebølgen var over NÅ ;) 
Huff. Rett fra kjøleskap-tempraturer til sydenvarme.. Glad jeg har en isbit maskin og ei svær elektrisk vifte ♥

Kortet mitt er DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #152. fra vår sponsor Wink Wink Ink. Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være :)

http://creativefingerschallengeblog.blogspot.no/


The summer has finally arrived in northern Norway, and I am not well pleased... It is too darn hot! It's a russian heatwave sweeping over us, and beeing used to refridgerator-and-freezer-temperatures so far this year (wich suits me just fine having hormonal hot flashes and issues), it is too much to take in. 26+ degrees in the shade and about 35 degrees on the sun-lit porch (not going out that way for sure)... I am melting! Could not have preservered without my big electric fan and ice-cube-making machine ♥

My DT card for this fortnights challenge #152. over at Creative Fingers has a supercute squirrel motif from our sponsor Wink Wink Ink, and as always it is an 'Anything goes theme'. You are more than welcome to join with your creations ♥

Shabby Chic Wedding card

 
Papirplanetens utfordring #18. ~ for juni mnd. har 'Bryllup ~ bruk blonde og/eller bånd' som tema. Du kan finne flere av stemplene og dies jeg har brukt hos Papirplaneten, linker nederst i bloggposten. Vi håper føler deg inspirert til å delta med dine kreasjoner hos oss ♥

Mitt kort er i shabby chic stilen, og som hoved motiv har jeg brukt et av mine absolutte favorittmotiver til bryllup ♥ Har lagd mange kort med dette stemplet fra Kort & Godt, spesielt etter jeg fikk MISTI'en, og det plutselig ble lett og få et fint, jevnt trykk. 3-4 stemplinger med grå pute, og en gang med versamark puta, klart embossingpulver og så varme-embossing ~ for å gi kortet et litt mere eksklusivt preg :)

http://papirplaneten1.blogspot.no/2017/06/utfordring-18-bryllup.html


This shabby chic themed weddingcard is my DT-inspiration for PapirPlaneten, an norwegian challengeblog and craft shoppe. Our theme for june is weddings, lace &/or ribbon. You are more than welcome to join with your creations, but the main prize is only shipped within Norway.

The main motif is a stamp from Kort & Godt, and it's one of my most used, especially for weddingcards. The heat-embossed silhouette looks so gorgeous in real life, hard to capture in the photo. I would not have been able to get such an impression without my MISTI ♥ took 3-4 stampings to get an even look, then once with the versamark, clear embossingpowder and heat tool. And it stamps perfectly each time :)

Mermaid Fun & Yummy Blogcandy Winner!


A couple of weekends ago I got my first Hero Arts Monthly kit! Yey Mermaids!  It could not be any more perfect as two of my nieces, and myself also absolutely LOVE everything mermaid related ♥ 
At the same time I received a parcel from Magnolia in Sweden, with some of the old hard-to-find rubbers. Really happy to get the swirly one, which I needed to replace the one I had wich was getting brittle and worn out after about ten years of beeing well used! 
So with my youngest niece visiting that weekend, we got to play with the lovely stamps and make a fantastic mermaid-birthday card for her mommy  ♥
Fun times :) 

I also have the Yummy BlogCandy winner to announce, via mr.random it is...

Fiki ~ Bad Kitty's CraftroomCongratulations!

Please email me at: tindaloo at hotmail dot com with your full name and address, and mention you're a BlogCandy winner in the topic so it won't get missed :)

Alien invasion?


Hvis du kjenner meg eller følger bloggen min så vet du at jeg elsker sci-fi ♥ Dette er absolutt ikke mitt første alien kort, og definitivt ikke det siste, de er så moro å lage! :) Hadde masse galakse-akvarellbiter liggende fra et tidligere kort ~ Greetings Earthling ~ og selve hovedfiguren var ferdig-fargelagt fra Wink Wink Ink, så dette gikk kjapt å lage. Har tilogmed enda flere galakse fargede biter igjen så det blir nok snart enda et alien kort! 

Lagde Alien kortet som mitt bidrag som DT på Creative Fingers utfordringblogg #130., hvor Angelique er vår generøse sponsor denne gangen! Som alltid er det 'Anything Goes', som betyr 'Lag-hva-du-vil', og du er hjertelig velkommen til å delta :)
http://creativefingerschallengeblog.blogspot.no/
(utfordringen blir litt forsinket!)

Har du forresten sett den nye BlogCandyen min? Mye flott å vinne der, og min måte å takke alle som følger bloggen min og titter innom og legger igjen så koselige kommentarer til meg. Trekker en heldig vinner etter den 25 mai!


If you know me and read my blog, u know that I LOVE sci-fi ♥ And this is not my first alien card, they are sooo fun to make! And it is very fun to make galaxies, actually this background is just a scrap watercolor leftover from a previous alien card ~ Greetings Earthling ~ and was super quick to do as the alien figure from Wink Wink Ink was pre-colored. I still got some fun circles left for another futuristic card too :)

My alien card I made as DT creation for Creative Fingers challenge #130. with Angelique ~ our supreme team leader & blog owner ~ as the generous sponsor this time. The theme is as always 'Anything Goes', create whatever you wish, and you are most welcome to join in! :) ~ (it's a bit delayed ~ check back later)

And btw., did you notice my pinned BlogCandy up for grabs?! Loads of yummy gorgeous goodies for a lucky winner! Enter before the 25th. of may :)
