Huldra snowman

I got invited to a crafting retreat this autumn quite last minute and this is one of the cards I made there. One of the other ladies there inspired this card as she’d made a beautiful mosaic background with leftover green papers. I simply had to lift the idea and made a card of my own with the same technique. I really quite like it!

Helt i siste liten fikk jeg en invitasjon til Hønetreffet som arrangeres årlig på Hønefoss, og jeg takket selvfølgelig ja! En produktiv halvannen dag var resultatet, og der ble jeg også spesielt inspirert av et kort som en annen treffdeltager (arrangøren) lagde. Hennes var grønt, med restepapir, mens jeg gikk for mine vanlige vinterfarger.  Jeg hadde jo ikke brukt noe som helst papir så langt, så da var det å skjære av striper på nye ark, og jeg er kjempefornøyd med resultatet, så det kan fort komme flere kort med mosaikkbakgrunn fra meg!

The papers are by Maja Design and Papirdesign, and the stamps are both from Huldra Designstudio. I love the sentiment. It reads: A snowflake is the butterfly of winter.

Begge stemplene er fra Huldra Designstudio og jeg synes tekststempelet er veldig fint! The papers are from Maja Design og Papirdesign.

Copics used: B91, B93, B95, B97, C1, C3, C5, R00, R20, E71, E74, E77

Rotated stamp set

I have finally got a stamp set from Concord & 9th! I decided on one of those pattern things where you turn the stamp around four times to make the completed pattern. I used four similar Distress Oxide Inks for it and the sentiment that came with. And voila! Finished card!

LLLC: Christmas treat holder

Friday is upon us yet again and this time the La-La Land Crafts  DT Friday team has been tasked to make treat holders! I sat down with my paper tripper and my score board and after a couple of a attempts this is what I came up with. I think next time I’ll just find myself a tutorial to follow and save myself some hassle, haha. It was fun, though, and I quite like how it turned out! It is basically a box at the bottom with one panel each side tied together at the top.

I’ve used loads of different La-La Land Crafts products and you can find them all listed below the photos. In addition I’ve used Maja Design papers, some twine for the tag and ribbon to tie the box.

Here is the back side of the box which I’ve decorated with a sentiment, another hippo stamp and some dies.

Stamps:
Hippo Holiday clear stamp
Jolly Elves clear stamp (sentiments)

Dies:
Star Wreath
Filigree Christmas Tree
Long Flags
Photo Elements
Stitched Clouds border
Scalloped Rectangles
Stitched Nested Circles

Copics used: W0, W1, W3, W5, R22, R24, R39, R89, E41, E42, E43, V12, V15, V17

Dearest Friend

A couple of weeks ago I went to a crafting fair and of course I had to buy some new stamps and things. I found a stand with a few Altenew products finally, so of course I couldn’t leave empty-handed. Here is the first Altenew card I’ve made. Of course it had to be something I could colour first! I even coloured in a background colour this time!

As usual I’ve kept the card clean and simple. And the stamp set? It’s called Dearest Friend. I absolutely love the sentiments that came with as well!

Copics used: V01, V12, V15, V15, V09, B32, B34, B37, YG13, YG63, YG67, R39, R81, R83, R85, BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29, Y13, Y18, E19, E97, E74

Elk stamp and sunsets

Today I’ve got three projects to share with you. All of them are featuring Distress Oxide Ink, text sentiments in Norwegian and the same elk/moose stamp from Huldra Designstudio. I asked for suggestions for the background colours and as I got four suggestions I thought I may as well try to use them all! All of the projects are made with everything on just one layer, except for the tag that has another tag in green on the other side.

I dag har jeg tre nye prosjekter å vise dere. Alle er laget med Distress Oxide, tekststempler og det samme elg-stempelet. Det er da selvfølgelig Huldra Designstudiostempler jeg har brukt her. Jeg ba om fargeforslag på Facebooksiden til Huldra og fikk inn 4 forslag. Siden det ikke var så mange så prøvde jeg å lage kort med alle. Det er stempelplata Jakt som har vært utgangspunktet for disse. Alle prosjektene er laget med kun ett lag, med unntak av pakkelappen som har enda en pakkelapp i grønn på baksiden.

The first card is made with the colours yellow-orange-red and a tree stamp by Nelli Snellen.

Det første kortet er laget med tre Distress Oxide farger. Gul – oransje – rød. Trestempelet er fra Nelli Snellen og tekststempelet er fra stempelplata til Huldras Rampestreker.

The second card is made with yellow-green-blue and a tree stamp from Altenew.

Dagens andre kort er laget med forslaget gul-grønn-blå og trestempel fra Altenew. Her er tekststemplene fra stempelplatene Jakt og Fleksitekst.

Here is the tag I made. The colour suggestions was yellow-pink-turquoise as well as yellow-orange-pink-blue(x2). The tag die is by La-La Land Crafts.

Pakkelappen jeg har laget er med fargeforslagene gul-rosa-blågrønn og gul-oransje-rosa-blå(x2). Teksten her er også fra Rampestreker. Taggen er fra La-La Land Crafts.
