Konfirmation 2013

Vi har ingen konfirmanter i år, hverken på familiefronten eller hos nære venner.

Næste år står de i kø, hele tre i familien- inc vores yngste.
Heldigvis er der ingen på samme dag, så vi når dem alle.

En af mine kollegaer spurgte om jeg ville lave et kort
 til hennes konfirmant, og gæt om!

Jeg fik nok så frie tøjler hvad angik både farver og motiv, her er resultatet.

Nu håber jeg bare 'kunden' og modtageren kan li' det.


Mønsterpapiret er det samme som fredagens DT kort for  
Det er 'Vintage Summer' fra Maja Design.


Jeg har lavet et Pocket Card, målene er 6x5,5 inch.

Teksten med navn og dato er lavet på PC.


Gemalen syntes der var lidt 'Ari og Martha' over hele kortet, jeg ved ikke helt om 
det var et kompliment! Men jeg kan da godt se at farverne ligner!


Motivet er et digistamp fra Saturated Canary, skønheden hedder Pink.

Båndet er hjemmefarvet med Distress Reinkere, blomsterne er fra mine gemmer.
Det samme er mobilcharmen som jeg syntes passede perfekt.


Her er taggen ved siden af kortet.

 Jeg har brugt mit sædvanlige 'Magi' stempel fra Stempelglede.
 Fantasiløst-måske, men jeg synes det passer 
så godt til en konfirmant, ja egentlig til mange anledninger.


Her er bagsiden af kort og tag, jeg var lidt usikker på hvor jeg skulle placere mit
'Stemplet af'. Det skulle måske sidde lidt højere oppe.

Ny udfordrings blog.


New Challenge Blog 'As You Like It' and CANDY


Annette and Samantha my teamies from ABC Christmas Challenge
are starting a brand new challenge blog. Here is what they write:
 
There's a brand new Challenge Blog beginning
Thursday 2 May.

The idea of As You Like It Challenge is to create and share creations  
you're proud of that showcase your own style. 

We will set loose themes, rather than strict rules and we have 
some amazing sponsors already lined up.

We hope that you will join us and create projects that suit your own preferences, 
making what you like and tell us what makes it your own style.
So...... Do you want to play?

Our challenges will be Fortnightly and the First Challenge will be 
8am (UK time) Thursday 2nd May 2013 

We will announce the first theme on 2 May and 

will also be holding a DT call on the first challenge.  
We are looking for 3 teamies to help us have fun!

In the meantime we have the chance to win some Candy in return for
helping us spread the word about our new challenge. 

Pop over to the As You Like It challenge blog and join in for a chance to win the CANDY.
The Candy competition will remain open from now until the end of the first challenge.  2 winners will be selected, and announced on the winners post on the 16th of May.

Spring With Buttons, DT card for Stamp and Create with Magnolia.

 Welcome and Happy Friday.

It's time for another challenge at Stamp and Create with Magnolia.
Our new theme is:

Spring with Buttons!

 SPRING themed image with some buttons on your project. 
What is a Spring themed image?:

Flowers, Butterflies, "New Beginnings" (baby/wedding), Rain, Sunshine/Outdoors,
 Baseball, Love, Mother's Day, Birthdays. Colors are more bright or pastel.


 

 I have made a card in some soft colours I normally don't use, the papers
are from Maja Design 'Vintage Summer'.
All edges are distressed.

The adorable Tilda is 'Rosegarden Tilda', from the
 Summer Memories 2012 collection.


I did not have Seam Binding in the right colour for this card,
so I dyed it myself with Distress Ink 'Spun Sugar'.

I love the curly look.

 The words ' Birthday Girl' is from 'Everyday Flexible Phrases' from Stampin' Up,
and punched out with my Word Window punch.

Oh boy, I was struggling getting that punch.
There's no Stampin' Up retailer in Norway where I live!



For once on my cards, several flowers and some punched butterflies. 
They are made out of vellum, and the biggest one is embossed.



My usual decorated backside with my personal stamp.


Come and join us at Stamp and Create with Magnolia.
 Link up your creations and link back to us for a chance to win.

Bella helping Santa, Mid-Way card for ABC Christmas Challenge.

Today I have a mid-way reminder for the current challenge at

Fiona is hosting this time and her challenge for the letter H is

H for Holiday Helpers!

Whether you create something with elves or fairies or come up with a completely
 new take on this theme, we want to see them! 

But don't panic; you still have till next Tuesday evening to link your card.



I have used 'Bella with Gifts' from Wild Rose Studio for today's card.

You can find Bella here at Stamp and Create, our sponsor for this challenge.

Bella is helping Santa with all the gifts.

The papers in traditional Christmas colours are from  Gliz Design,
and the sentiment on the banner is from LOTV.

I have used Stickles on Bella's hat and two of the gifts.
For the snow I have used Liquid Applique.

It pops up when you heat it up.
Wonder how it looks like when the card it's mailed to the receiver....

The flower is made with  a die from Magnolia and
mounted together with some punched leaves
and a yellow brad in the center.


The backside a bit like the front and of course my personal stamp.



For more inspiration, please take a look at the ABC Christmas Challenge blog.
My team mates have made some wonderful creations- as always.

It's all about the weather, DT card for HM&FMC.


 Hello and happy Monday, crafter!

   Are you ready for another fabulous challenge from the HM&FMC team?
I hope so and can't wait to see you joining the Fun!

It's Natascha's turn to host this fortnight's challenge,
and Natascha's theme is 

Weather! 

Sun, rain, wind or snow- it's up to you what you prefer to show us.



I have chosen 'snow' as my weather. I'm not sure if it's because of the cute
image or the wonderful design papers from Bo Bunny.

But I loved making this card, blue and white is such a fab colour combo,
and I'm crazy about the image, 'Holly Sailing'.

I have added Stickles on to the snow and Glossy Accent to the berries.


And a wintery card was a great excuse to use the dies from Memory Box.

 I have recently bought a metal adapter to use when cutting
with the Memory Box dies on my Cuttlebug.
 It was for sure a good investment!


The backside with my  'Handmade by' stamp.



Thank you for reading this post, as always I  love to read your comments and I
 hope that you will hop over and join in with the new challenge at HM&FMC.


We have Three Fabulous Prizes and that means 3 chances
for you to win!  :)








and


Joanna Sheen - $ 10 Gift Voucher



and



One Lucky Winner will receive a fab $10 Gift Certificate to shop at HMSTAMPS.

 

Thank You to our wonderful sponsors for your great generousity!!

Henry fejrer x 4.

For en gangs skyld har jeg syndet mod mine principper,
jeg har masseproduceret kort!

Og tro det eller ej ; jeg nød processen.

Jeg har lavet fire næsten ens kort med Henry fra WOJ.
 Han er min første stempelkærlighed,
og et stempel jeg stadig vender tilbage til.


Henry er stemplet direkte på kortet og farvelagt med Distress Inks.
 'Gratulerer' stemplet er fra min lokale hobbybutik Hobbyhimmelen.


Vimpelbanneret er lavet med en die fra Magnolia,
papiret er fra Maja Design.

Der er kommet Stickles på kagen.



Og det er såmænd det hele!


Bagsiderne er helt enkle i blåt eller rødt.

 

Her et blik på alle fire kort; min mindste dreng (13 år) har godkendt
dem som fødselsdagskort til sine venner.

Og det er et kvalitetsmærke!!

H for Holiday Helpers, a DT card for ABC Christmas Challenge.

Hi crafters,  and welcome to a new challenge ABC Christmas Challenge.

Fiona is your host this fortnight and this week the challenge is..........

H for Holiday Helpers!

So think elves, fairies or someone helping to get ready for Christmas.



I have discovered CAS cards and found out that I'm able to stamp and colour
 with both Distress inks and Prisma Colour Pencils on to the card base! 
So in the future- no need for any design papers !!!
I'll show you  on some cards later this week-
and maybe on my half-way card for ABC Christmas Challenge.





I don't think Edwin from Magnolia is a great helper the way he does things,
but at least he tried, that must count as well. 
Poor little fool!

Edwin is coloured with my Prisma Colour pencils,
is's such a long time ago since I used them.
I can't understand why,


The design papers are from My Mind's Eye.

I love Edwind's light chain, and when I discovered those small
bulbs in a shop a long time ago, I just had to order them!

Today's card is really CAS, no decoration inside,
and on the backside there's only my personal stamp.



The sponsor for this challenge is our own teamie Lacey from Stamp and Create.




            And an awesome prize of $ 25 to the store.


Thanks for looking, The DT have made some gorgeous cards so please hop
 over to the ABC Christmas Challenge Blog to see them.

Finally Springtime, and GD at Tip Top Tuesday.

I think spring  is on its way now, the snow in the garden is melting day by day. 

While waiting, I was asked to be Guest Designer at Tip Top Tuesday,
the answer at this question was......YES!
Thanks to the TTT team for asking me.


The theme for this Tuesdays challenge is:


Say It Isn't Sew! - Faux stitching on a card/creation.



There are two faboulous sponsors for the challenge:



Photobucket


 and




Krista has kindly given some images for the team to use,
 it was difficult to choose just one, but I think 'Springtime' was
 a perfect choice for this time of the year.

I was so happy to find out that our new computer
would cooperate in printing out for me. 



And here she is this little lovely one, together with design papers
from my favourite company, Maja Design.

I have made a soft blue and white creation with a touch of green,
beautiful colours, I think- my favourite.



Unusually many flowers on a card made by me. 
They are a mix from my stash and the leaves are punched out.

The main part of my cards 
are supposed to go by (snail) mail and I won't think
of what the postman does to the embellishments!


Here is the backside of my card, those of you who sometimes make a 
visit here will know that I always decorate here as well.

Often my backside is the front in miniatur, but today
 I have chosen an easyer way.

Tillykke kære svoger.


Her i denne uge fyldte en af mine tre yndlings svogere år,
og derfor skulle han selvfølgelig have et kort.


Stemplet blev et af mine 'halv pris stempler' fra Hobbyhimmelen,
'Missed You' fra Penny Black.  Til jer der bor her i byen, I kan stadigvæk
nå at få fat i flere billige monterede stempler.

Mønsterpapiret er fra Basic Grey  'Archaic',
en rigtig skøn serie med flotte drenge/mande-ark.



Golfbolden har fået en omgang Liquid Pearls
og køllen er lavet blank med Glossy Accent.

'Happy Birthday'- som det hedder på godt dansk-
er småstempler fra Stampin Up.


Bagsiden kan vel siges at være relativ enkel.




Jeg har benyttet mig af denne sketch fra Penny Black Saturday Challenge.
