Sassy Princess Feathers & BlogCandy Winner!


Motivet på kortet mitt er 'Princess Feather Portrait' fra Sassy Studio Designs ♥ Hun var en drøm å male ~ fikk meg til å tenke på Pocahontas filmen fra Disney, tror jeg må se den igjen i helga! :) 
Fikk et kjempeflott stempelsett kalt 'Feathered Friends' med i scrappebladet Creative Stamping. Masse fugler og fjær som passet helt perfekt til dette kortet! De blir nok brukt ofte heretter ♥ Sjekk de søte uglene! 
Lurer du på hvem som vant den store Digi-Doodle BlogCandyen min? Rull litt nedover så får du se!!! :)

'You are Unique'
The motif on my card today is called 'Princess Feathers Portrait' from Sassy Studio Designs. She was an absolute dream to color! Gorgeous image, thinking of the Pocahontas movie by Disney while painting.. I think I'll watch it again this weekend, been years since last time :) 
I got an awesome clearstamp-set named 'Feathered Friends' in the cardmaking magazine Creative Stamping. So many cute birds n feathers! I'm sure I'll be using it very often in my crafting ♥
Something I haven't used from my stash for ages is Prima flowers, and I have sooooo many of them! Which is a good thing as I actually messed up my card with black smudges here and there.. and had to hide them somehow! ;) 

Did you wonder about the winner of my BIG Digi-Doodle Blogcandy? I have let Mr.Random do the honors and ... drumroll .... 

..... Ta-Daaaa! the winner is: .....

It was early 2010 when I first discovered this wonderful shoppe with amazing artists (then only in high quality rubber, in the later years also in digital stamps), and I have been a HUGE fan ever since.. or hoarder I may as well say .. as I tend to buy all I see that I 'need' ..and they have become so many that I have lots not used once yet! Anyone else? *lol*
I also tend to buy the very same stamps sometimes.. so I get some duplicates! 

This lovely rubberstamp 'Cherished Christmas' by Ching Chou Kuik (including ez-mount!) is one I will give away to a lucky winner who comments on this post! Worldwide entries welcome! Enter before 23:55/11:55PM (norwegian time) on November 30th., I will draw a winner December 1st. :)

Steampunk Clockwork Fairy!


Har du sett min flotte blogcandy? Digi Doodle BlogCandy :)
Nå er det under ei uke igjen til jeg trekker en vinner!  

Jeg ELSKER Steampunk! ♥ det er en herlig blanding av Vintage og gammeldags Sci-fi/Fantasy... masser av klokker og tannhjul, alt går i brunt og metall, ting er drevet av damp ~ luftballonger, dampskip og damp-lokomotiver,  zeppelinere, og viktorianske  klær og hatter... (Wikipedia: Steampunk / DampPunk)
En stor del av stemplene mine, både de i gummi og de digitale er fantasi/eventyr figurer.. Og dette motivet gir meg det beste av begge verdener ~ en Steampunk Fe! ♥

Beehive and Roses


Har du sett min flotte blogcandy? Digi Doodle BlogCandy :)

Jeg valgte vintage farger til dette nydelige motivet fra Lemon Shortbread, vår sponsor hos Creative Fingers #97. Fantastiske stempelmotiv inspirert av japansk anime! ♥  Som alltid er det 'Anything Goes', som betyr 'Lag-hva-du-vil' på vår utfordringsblogg, og du er hjertelig velkommen til å delta :)

https://www.etsy.com/shop/lemonshortbread


My card today is feauturing the lovely 'Beehive and roses' from our sponsor Lemon Shortbread in challenge #97. over at Creative Fingers! They make the most gorgeous anime inspired digistamps ♥ I chose vintage colors and a simple layout to really make her the centerpiece. The only embellishment she needed was a nice frame, and a bit of shine from my Glossy and Twinks!
The Theme is as always 'Anything Goes', create whatever you wish, and you are most welcome to join in! :)

This has to be my absolute fave combo of my dies! Seriously, if you are new to crafting and considering buying dies for your big shot, cuttlebug or other diecut maschine ~ theese three die sets mix and match perfectly together, endless variations and uses for frames and mats, even sending your cardbase through one of the large dies gives you a great shaped card! See all my cards using theese awesome dies here! :)
However, the Grand die set for Labels One is actually made for the bigger die cutting maschines, so you cannot fit the two biggest dies in this set inside the regular Big shot or Cuttlebug (only the really BIG maschines that goes above 6 inches does that) but the remaining dies are just SO worth getting that die set that I reccommend it none the less! 
I Scrap Happy show you just how the grand dies fit in your regular diecut maschine in her video on youtube here. If u watch this, be aware that now there is an extended platform that makes some of the long dies she shows cut just fine! ...I'm so gonna buy the grand labels four next :) 
If you you are brand new to crafting with diecuts, and unsure about what a diecut maschine does, like a Cuttlebug, Big Shot or the Big Shot Plus and others too, do a search for them on youtube! Best source for tutorials! 
Also, Scrapmadesimple has a great youtube vid here ~ and here ~ and you get a laugh as well ;)
