Birthday wishes

I had fun playing around with Distress Oxide Inks again. A couple of pink shades this time. I did a random circle and a strip on the side which I then doodled around using my Copic multiliner and then I added some white dots in various sizes using a sharpie marker. I then drew up some dots on the top and bottom before adding my bear and sentiment to it. I coloured up the cardstock for the die cut in a matching colour as well. The die and the bear are both MFT Stamps..

LotV bunny love

Time for another Lili of the Valley card! Their bunnies are the cutest, really! It was fun colouring up rather dreamy clouds for these love bunnies. I’ve kept the background pretty simple on this layered card with just a bit of lace and ribbon along with some heart and butterfly die cuts. The dies are from Memory Box, La-La Land Crafts and Rayher. The chipboard is by Snip Art.

Girl, it’s your day!

Clean and simple is my thing at the moment. Mostly because I’ve gone through images I’ve coloured that fit well on those kind of cards! This is a fairy, by Stamping Bella, that I coloured up a while ago. I’ve even made a video of how I colour it. It is in slightly different colours, but you’ll get the idea. The video is here.

Once again I’ve used Lawn Fawn paper and Make it Crafty chipboard. The enamel dots are by Your Next Stamp and the dies and embossed text stamp by MFT Stamps.

Whimsy blog hop

Blog hop time! Are you ready?!

I have made a non-romance type card, because there are different kinds of love. This card is for someone very special indeed, and I guess it is more a mix of Agape and Storge kind of love, instead of Eros. More info on the different kinds of love, and the whole blog hop, on the Whimsy Stamps blog.

There are also chances to win from random comments on a few different DT creations. The hop runs until 2pm EST (that is 20:00 here in Norway) on Valentine’s Day 14th February. The grand prize is 5 digital stamps and there are winners on three blogs who will win one digital image each, as well as some extra chances on the Whimsy Stamps blog itself.

The card has been made using some of my favourite dies and for once I also used flowers on it! Cheesecloth, lace and ribbon are all present on this layered card with Papirdesign and Maja Design paper. The adorable stamp is from the Wee Stamps collection at Whimsy Stamps and is called Dreamy Dragon.

The first thing you might notice is that I’ve changed the background image of my photo, haha. Well, that’s because this card has a grey base on the outer most layer which didn’t look great with my usual grey background. So now you know that.

Anyway, we’re hopping a bit at random, so you can go visit whoever you like! Just make sure you leave a comment while you’re here, for a chance to win.

Here is another photo for you as well

So hop along and visit one of these wonderful ladies to see what they have made, or better still… go visit them all! Here is a list of the wonderful DT with links to their blog. It’s in alphabetical order!

Thanks for popping by and I hope you have a great Valentine’s Day with whoever you choose to spend it with, even if it’s just your favorite book character!

Hippo birthday (og nytt kurs)

It is time for me to prepare for my second cardmaking course in Oslo, and for that I’ve used a card I made in 2018 as inspiration. I absolutely love this effect from distress oxides combined with the adorable stamps from MFT Stamps. It was so much fun doing the first one and I’m looking forward to the next already.

Da er jeg i gang med planleggingen av kurset jeg skal holde på Hobbykunst i Oslo i februar. Igjen blir det alternative farger man kan velge, både på Copic og Distress Oxide. Dette er den ene kombinasjonen. Jeg har brukt stempler fra My Favorite Things og tekststempel fra Hulda Designstudio. For informasjon om kurset og påmelding se Hobbykunst sine hjemmesider her.

Copics used: W0, W1, W3, W5, C0, C1, C3, C5, RV00, RV02, RV04, RV06, RV09, RV10, RV63, RV66, RV69, RV91, RV93.
