Heat Embossing, DT card for HM&FMC

Hi and welcome to a brand new challenge at
House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge.

America is our host today, and America's theme is

Heat Embossing!

This theme was really challenging for me. I do embosse
 from time to time but mostly I do dry embossing. So
when this theme came up I did panic a bit!!




This is one of my favourite House Mouse images, well a lot of them are ;)

Today's sunny papers are from Bo Bunny,
I think they look lovely together with the 'Fresh Squeezed Jokester' image.


In sted of covering the lemon with Glossy Accent, as I have done before,
I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.

On the lemon slices I used embossing powder with glitter.

And finally I used black embossing powder for the Whimsy Stamp sentiment.


I loved using the sketch from Your Next Stamp,
here is the backside of my card.




And here is the lovely sketch. I'm sure I'll use it again.



Our sponsor for this challenge is once again House-Mouse Designs.
One lucky winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to the shop.



Thanks for looking, the DT have all made gorgeous cards for your inspiration
 so hop on over to the HM&F Monday Challenge to see them.

I hope you'll find the heat gun and some powder and join the fun.

O for Oh Christmas Tree, DT card for ABC Christmas Challenge.

It's time for a brand new ABC Christmas Challenge...
this fortnight Wilma is the host, with a theme of:

O is for O’ Christmas Tree!

an easy one this time or what do you think?

I'm late with my card today, sitting in my summerland with an
unstable internet connection. 

I want to apologize to you for not being around
as I 'm supposed to, leaving you some lovely comments.
 
 

I have inked up one of the cute Gnomes from Whiff of Joy,
'Wee and Christmastree', and instead of colouring the tree,
I have paper pieced it and added some bling.


The papers are from My Mind's Eye ' the '12 Day's of Christmas' collection.

The sentiment is from LOTV.


The back of my card, using the usual reciepe,
the front in miniature and my personal stamp.

Christmas in July, DT card for Stamp and Create with Magnolia.

Good morning Crafters and welcome to a sunny Friday- in my part of the world-
and a new challenge at Stamp and Create with Magnolia.

This time the theme will help to keep you cool, because we are celebrating

Christmas in July !


What so we consider a Winter themed image?:
Cold, Snow, Christmas, New Year's/Celebrations. 
Colors are: Red/Green, Gold, white, blue, etc...
Prize for a lucky random winner:


Stamp and Create carries a wide range of Magnolia stamps
 at some of the lowest prices!

'

I have used  'Winter Tilda' from Sweet Christmas Dreams 2011.
Sweet and a dream to colour. I have stamped some random snowflakes around
the image- but I'm not good at random!
Well well they are there....


For the first time I have used some cheesecloth on a card, 

The flower is made with my retro punch and a rose on top of it.
Sentiment from LOTV.

Papers today are from Maja Design. Blue and white are a favourite of mine.


 I borrowed this beautiful Memory Box snowflake wreath die from a frind of mine, 
and added some bling onto the die cut.


 My usual backside, with my personal stamp.

Tillykke med dagen i dag.

Dagens kort er sendt til en kær blogven- jeg håber det er kommet frem i tide.
 Hugs and Happy Birthday, dear Samantha! 


Stemplet er fra Saturated Canary, 'Springtime' hedder det.

Mønsterpapiret er fra Maja Design, desværre har jeg ikke ret
meget tilbage af disse flotte blå ark.


Som I kan se har jeg maskeret motivet og lavet skyer i baggrunden.
 
I et forsøg på at få tekststemplet til at ligne en blomst, 
lagde jeg et lag med Glossy Accent på.

Blomstereffekten kan vel diskuteres, men nogle gange er 
man  bare nødt til at prøve noget nyt.
Tænk hvis det funger!


Kortet er et easelkort med tag i bunden til at skrive på.
Charm og bånd er fra mine skuffer.

'Happy Birthday' er punched og pyntet med
bling, det samme er blomsterne til venstre på kortet.


Der er kommet er par nye følgere i det sidste, det glæder mig meget,
Velkommen til jer.

Hexagon og Happy Birthday.

Nogle gange har man brug for et helt enkelt kort,
uden malet motiv og andre 'dikkedarer'.



Jeg har brugt en Hexagon die og nogle rester fra Basic Grey 'Kioshi'.

Og med udgangspunkt i en sketch hos Sketch Saturday
for et stykke tid siden, blev disse to kort til.

Tekststemplet på det lilla kort er fra LOTV,
og hjørnestemplet på det grønne  fra Norsk Stempelblad


Enklere end dette tror ikke jeg kan få det!

Jeg håber I nyder sommervarmen, det gør jeg.

Jeg har haft fri siden i søndags, og når kommende
arbejdsweekend er overstået begynder min ferie, jippi.

N for No Embellishments, DT card for ABC Christmas Challenge

Hello crafters, ABC Christmas Challenge is here with a brand new challenge for you.

Helen is host for the N for 

No Embellishments!



I have made another surprise Pop-up card. You can find my first attempt here.
I love making folded cards, and there are so many tutorials
out there in blogland just waiting to be used.


The image is the cute 'Mr Snowman' from LOTV, I have coloured him with my
 Prisma Colour Pencils and added Perfect Pearls and Stickles
 as snow and snowflakes.


The papers is from Maja Design and the sentiment from Penny Black.


It's diffecult to take pictures showing the card as it looks, use your fantasy,
and I'm sure you'll manage. Or even better; give it a try yourself.



The backside of my card is like this today.





Stamp Fairy is our sponsor for the N challenge.

We also have two Guest Designers from the Stampfairy design team who are
 showcasing some beautiful designs.

More Food, Midway reminder for HM&FMC

Our super talented Teamie Sue Kment is hosting this Challenge and has chosen...


FOOD
 
Anything foodrelated is what we are looking for.
And you know how these little House Mouse critters like their food, 
so this challenge should be easy peasy!



 My card for today is rather simple, a one layer card- I have stamped my image
directly onto the white cardstock. I have found a white smooth paper, perfect
for colouring with my Prisma Colour Pencils.

The small paper bits on my card are from Maja Design
and heartpearls are from my stash.

The cute image is 'Seed Shooter'
and the sentiment 'Hello Friend' is from LOTV.



Here is the paper I have found.
It is watercolour paper from Derwent.





We are so lucky having 2 sponsors for this challenge.
That means 2 chances for you to win.

Sommer Tilda.

Er det endelig sommeren som er her?

Sol så langt som vejrudsigten viser, vi krydser fingre og håber.
Det passer fint for mig, for når denne arbejdsweekenden 
er overstået,har jeg fri helt til næste lørdag.

 Det havde været dejligt at bli varmet godt igennem,
og få lidt farve på de- endnu - vinterblege ben!


Jeg har været igang med mit første 'Surprise Pop-Up' kort.
Jeg har ofte set den type kort, men endnu ikke prøvet det selv.
Ikke før nu.

Jeg fandt denne tutorial på Splitcoaststampers, og så var det bare at starte.
Jeg tilpassede målene lidt undervejs.

Papiret er fra Maja Design.
Bånd, blomst, perler og søstjernecharm havde jeg fra før.

Stemplet er fra Magnolia 'Tilda in Key Largo' det er nyt for mig 
men ellers fra sidste års 'Summer Memories' kollektion.

Skyerne bag Tilda er lavet efter denne opskrift fra Bev. 

Tak til alle jer der laver flotte  tutorials så vi andre 
kan finde ud af tingene på en nem måde.


Her er kortet trukket ud og tekststemplerne kan ses.
De er norske og  fra North Star Stamps.

Der er to ulemper ved denne type kort,
  1. De er ikke lette at fotografere
  2. Hvor skal jeg skrive?


Her er bagsiden af mit kort, jeg elsker den die jeg har brugt,
og med min metal adapter plade er det ikke noget problem 
at få den skåret fint ud på Cuttlebuggen.



I går, fredag, startede udfordring #13 hos
Stamp and Create With Magnolia. 


Det var team A's tur til at vise kort, men jeg fandt ud af at mit
kort også passede perfekt til temaet:


 Let's Get Wet !





 Præmien er som I ser et stempel fra Stamp and Create.
Har I sommer  Magnolia stempler som har brug for en luftetur
og lidt stempelsværte så er chancen her.
