K for Keep it simpel, DT Card for ABC Christmas Challenge.

Welcome to a new challenge at ABC Christmas Challenge.

I don't know about you, but I find it a bit
hard to sit indoor crafting,
when the sun shines and it's really hot.

But I love making cards, especially Christmas cards.

Bettina is hosting at ABC Christmas Challenge for the first time,
I bet she's a bit nervous,
but her post on the challenge blog is brilliant.

K is our letter, and stands for:

Keep it Simple


It might not be challenging for you
to keep it simple,
so come on and show us your creations,
you can participate as many times you want.

Sponsors are


Prize is a $10 gift certificate to the store.




Wild Rose Studio



Prize is 2 stamps of winners choice.



Before you head off to start crafting be sure to visit the
ABC Christmas Challenge blog
for some more wonderful DT inspiration.

Remember your creation has to be Christmas related.




For my card I have used this cute
Little Apprentice from Sugar Nellie.
She's new to me and so adorable!

She's coloured with Distress Reinkers, and I have
added a lot of Stickles on to her clothe.

The papers are from Maja Design.

The poinsettia is a part of a lovely blog candy
I won at Elaine's place last week, thanks a lot.



A closeup of the little darling.


The back side with elements from the front
and my personal stamp.


Yes I know, I should keep my card simple.

But it was challenging for me,
I did my best, I'm not sure if i'm satisfied, but I'll promis
to show you a simple mid-way card one week from now.

I have used Jen's Sketch from Sketch N Stash

Midway reminder for our All 'Round' Fun at HM&FMC.

Hi Mousey lovers.

I'm here with a midway reminder for our ongoing challenge at
House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge.

Our mega talented Meece Sister Teamie Sue Dress, is hosting and wants to see

'Circles, Polka Dots & All-Round Fun'


on your designs.

For more inspiration from my talented teamies
and sponsor information, please jump to the HM&FMC blog.




Since this is a 1/2 way post I decided to make a 1/2 round card.

It's my first-but for sure not my last-of that kind of card.



The cute little Happy Hopper is called Relaxing Bubbles.
I have added a lot of Stickles on the bubbles.

The papers I've used are Christmas (!) papers from Wild Rose Studio.
'Relax' is a part of a sentiment from LOTV.

Button and ribbon are a gift from my teamie Lols-
purple is one og my favourite colours.


Here is a pic of the back side, only my personal 'handmade by' stamp.

Cool Edwin.

Så er der bare et eller to af årets konfirmationskort
som jeg ikke har vist på bloggen.

Dette her er lavet efter samme opskrift som dette kort,
'Til en Ven'.

En slags Pocket/Tag kort som er let at lave.
Specielt når man laver nummer to.

Der kræves ikke så meget pynt,
og jeg synes papiret kommer fint til sin ret.

Stemplet er 'Cool Edwin' fra Magnolia.

Han er farvelagt med Distress Reinkere.

De flotte Maritime papirer er fra Maja Design,
serien 'Skærgårdsliv'

Her er taggen taget ud, der er plads til at skrive bagpå.

Båndet er Seam Binding der er bundet på en knap.
Hjørnene er rundet med en kantpunch.


Inden i lommen stemplede jeg med 'Tøff & Kul' stemplet fra Stempelglede.

Det kommer frem som en lille hilsen når taggen trækkes op.
Det krævede lidt tilpasning at få det nøjagtig der jeg ville.


Her er kort og tag ved siden af hinanden.

Tandhjulene er lavet med en Spillbinder Die,
og stjerneborden med en Magnolia doohickey.

Bagsiden er holdt nok så enkel, mønsterpapir, mit 'lavet af' stempel
og så lige er tandhjul mere.

.:Mermaid Gilly:.

Hi, Prairie Fairy Stamps Lovers!

Today I want to share with you a folded card that I made
with Mermaid Gilly from the Prairy Fairy Design Shop.

For those of you who sometimes visit my blog,
you know that I love to make folded cards.

I saw this fold on one of my rounds in blogland,
it's called a Diorama Card.

You can find a tutorial here.


I didn't have too much time, so I decided to use the
precoloured version of Mermaid Gilly.

A great opportunity if you are in a hurry.

In order to match Gilly I have chosen
design papers from Maja Design.

'Crea Diem' the line is called.
Maja Design is a Swedish company, and I love their papers.

A sideview to show you the dimentions.

I have addad a lot of pink and blue Sticklen on her tail.

The embellishment are shells and sand from the beach.

The banner is made with a Magnolia Doohickey.


Quite a simple card, but I had a good time making it.

My only question is now ; where to write a regard??

The paper I have used has pattern on both sides.

So I just made two circles, a blue one and one with my personal stamp.

Mid Way post for ABC Christmas Challenge.

Hello crafters in blogland, here is a (scheduled) reminder for this
fortnight's challenge at ABC Christmas Challenge.


I hope mr. Blogger is nice to me, because at this moment
I'm on my way to Oslo with my Hubby and the smallest of our boys.

We are going to a concert with Metallica tonight at Valle Hovin.

It's not my favourite band, but my kid is a huge fan.

I look forward to seeing his enthusiasm!
So I'm sure it'll be great fun.



Samantha is hosting our

J for Jingel Bells.

Bugaboo Stamps is the sponsor for this challenge, and has kindly
given the team some digis to play with.



For my card i have used Snowman Polka Scarf from Bugaboo.

I have a soft spot for snowmen, wonder if it's because they are so easy to colour?

Some Distress reinkers and Stickles here and there, and that's it!


The paper is from Papirdesign, a Norwegian company.

The ribbon is Seam Binding, and I have added a little
Jingle Bell charm together with the bow.


A simple backside, dp and my personal stamp.

All 'Round' Fun, DT card for HM&FMC

Monday again, after a long and relaxing weekend.

We had the day off at 17th of May because it was the national day of Norway,
And the kids had the Friday off as well.


The weather has been sunny and lovely,
and finally I have started to organize our pictures
and negatives 15 years back in time!
Luckily I could sit outside.

As you know for sure, if you are addictet to House Mouse images,
House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge
is ready with a new challenge for you.

Sue Dress is our lovely host today, and she wants to see

Circles and Polka Dots- All 'Round' Fun




For this challenge we have to fabulous sponsores:



Giving a $10 gift package from the store.



Giving a $25 gift certificat to the HMD shop.






It's a long time ago since I've made an easel card.

Keeping the layout and embellishments
quite simple, I think this little cutie looks... cute!


The dotty paper is from Panduro Hobby, the white cardstock
is embossed with the Swiss Dot folder from Cuttlebug.

The sentiment, saying 'Welcome to the World'
is computer generated.


I found the lines on a design paper 'Little Sprout' from Fancy Pants.

I have used them before on baby cards, I find them so true, so true.


A closeup of the adorable couple.

I have added some sparkle to the wings,
hard to tell, but it's there.

Lace and pearls from my stach.

I have used this sketch from The Cutie Pie Challenge.

Til en ven.

Det meste på bloggen for tiden handler om konfirmation,
også dette indlæg.

Her er 'Tak for hjælpen' kortet som jeg lavedet til Marianne,
som hjalp os i køkkenet til konfirmationen.

Dejligt med en dygtig tallerkensvinger.


Jeg fik ideen til konvolut kortet her hos Inge,
men lavede lidt om på målene så de passede mig bedre.

Mit kort er 4.25 x 6.25 inch.


Her er taggen ude; mønsterpapirene fra Maja Design har altid en
bord nederst på en af siderne. Det er barer ikke altid så let at få
brugt den, men her synes jeg det blev fint.

Båndet er Seam Binding farvet med glimmermist.

Jeg synes rigtig godt om det krøllede
udtryk båndet får når det er tørt.

Der er en lille engle charm der også.


Weathered Clock dien fra Tim Holtz er brugt sammen med Tilda fra Magnolia.
Hun er ny i hjemmet her ;) , kun brugt en gang før på dette kort.

Ticket stemplet og dien er fra Whimsy Stamps.


Bagsiden er helt enkel bare mit stempel og mønsterpapir.

Årets Jakkekort !

Jeg havde påbegyndt et jakkekort som af en eller anden
grund ikke var blevet lavet helt færdigt.

Så da jeg kom på at jeg manglede et
konfirmationskort var det let at gå til.

Jakken er lavet efter Mayas Tutorial.

Jeg har ikke brugt magneter på mit kort,
dem jeg har er enten så stærke at de river papiret
itu, eller også holder de ikke arkene sammen!


Slipset er blankt grønt silkebånd, slipsenålen en perle på nål.


Kortet ser sådan ud når det er åbnet,
der er plads til penge i 'inderlommen'.


Magi-stemplet fra Stempelglede, og melankolske Edwin fra Magnolia.
En perfekt match!

Edwin fik lidt Stickles på sine vinger.

Det brunternede papir er fra 7Gypsies.



Kortet bagfra med 'håndlavet af' stemplet.
