Last card for 2014

I saw this gorgeous stamp called "the Wiz" from Mo Manning and fell in love with it right away. Isn't he just awesome? Sure this is going to be a favorite. I gave him some color with my Copics. Unfortunately I borrowed my Mac to my son for the next upcoming days (how wise was this?) so I have to give you to Copicnumbers the old fashioned way. No PS without my Mac either. I hope the pics will be good enough to honor this amazing little fellow.
Copics used:
YG 95, 93, 91, E 43, 44 (the robe)
E 43, 44 (hat)
B 95, 93, 91 ( crystal ball)
E 41, 43, C 1, W 3 (beard/hair)
E 000, 00, 11 (skin)

Christmas card production 2014 has started!

Yesterday I was on my first Copic Marker course (course I & II) at Bikuben and it was soo fun and I learned soo much!! It also became clear to me that there is so much more to learn and so many areas on which I can improve myself! So this upcoming two weeks will exist of exercise, exercise and exercise! Next modules (course III & IV will be on November 1st. and I am really looking forward to it! Back to today! I made this first Christmas card for this year, The stamp is from North Star Stamps. I got it yesterday together with some other stamps as a birthday present from my youngest son. Isn´t he cute? Colored- I guess you guessed that- with Copics. Below the last pic you can see the numbers I used. The card is quit simple just because I often think that less really is more. I stashed the inside with some craft paper and the die from Memory Box and left enough "white" to write a nice season greeting. Hope you like it :)

I {heart} Oscar

Får jeg presentere gode gamle Oscar!! Min far fyller 82 om noen dager og som mange andere har også jeg til tider problemer med å lage det perfekte herrekortet men med Oscar fra Mo´s Digital Pencil var det problemet løst. Man må jo bare elske denne sympatiske karen! Materialer: Alt av papir er rester og navnene på de forskjellige ark har jeg dessverre ikke lenger. Stempel Oscar fra Mo´s Digital Pencil, Ribbon Banner: Spellbinders og blomsten ( du aner det kanskje allerede) er en die fra My Favorite Things.
Takk for besøket!

Knappe 2 måneder å lage julekort på...

og startskuddet har gått :) Materialer brukt til det første kortet: Tim Holtz Distress Ink, stempel Mimosa Snowflake fra Bildmålarna , gatelykt er fra Tim Holtz Alterations serie (kjørt gjennom Cuttlebug uten problemer), stjernetaggen på innside er fra en die fra My Favorite Things Star Stax, stempelet "Gledelig Jul"er fra Stempelglede.

Kort nr 2 har jeg forelsket meg i! Igjen et stempelavtrykk fra Bildmålarna. Denne gangen Little Winged Friends "Under the Stars". Klusteret er lagd med samme stjerne som på kort 1 My Favorite Things Star Stax. Små hjertene har jeg kjøpt hos Panduro og teksten på innside er igjen et stempel fra Stempelglede. På begge kort har jeg mer eller mindre brukt samme papir: Paper Pad "Way back when..." (Vibeke Spigseth), Paper Pad (Panduro), Waiting for Santa II van PIONdesign en karton van Bazill. Det som kan se ut som bånd er faktisk washi-tape som er lett i bruk og gir et eget preg. Håper du liker det du ser :)

Begge avtrykk er fargelagt med Promarkers.

High Hopes

Er zijn zó veel mooie stempels te koop en te downloaden dat sommige er gewoon van tijd tot tijd bij inschieten. Nu dus weer even tijd om High Hopes in het zonnetje te zetten. Deze hele geinige kikker maakt he-le-maal je dag als je het mij vraagt. Ingekleurd met Promarkers. De kaart bestaat voornameijk uit Bazill karton. De bloem is van Panduro en de swirl een die-cut van My Favorite Things.

My oh my, time really flies!

And all of a sudden it´s autumn! I really don´t think I´m the born stamper / scrapper in the summer. Haven´t really touched any of my stuff from my last posting til last weekend. But now it´s getting darker and darker and colder and colder in Norway so no reason to leave the house unless you really have to :) I got so inspired by the work of the so very talented Inge presents all of the time that I had to grab some stamps and had to get starting. The result after last sunday are the following two cards. Both made with the Pure Innocent images from My Favorite Things. For the coloring: Promarkers and some Distress to soften some edges. This was the very first time I tried to paperpierce and it really is fun to do. The result is so different from the traditional coloring! Paperpad is coming from My Minds Eye and different dies are used from Nestabillities, My Favorite Things and ordinary die-cutters. The sentiments followed the Pure Innocent girl together with the kite (both stamp and die cut). Now I really hope I´m back on track because I have some serious X-mas-card-making to do in the very near future :) In the meantime I´m waitng full of excitement for the postman ´cause I did some serious shopping at My Favorite Things last week...

It´s far too long ago since I scrapped a page and there are SO many pictures!! The page I scrapped earlier this week and I show you here are pictures from two-thousand-and-four!!! Just so you get an idea of the amount pictures I´m talking about. Since early 2004 I haven´t been scrapping anything on descent paper. I did do some digital scrapping though but it doesn´t give me the same satisfaction. It is really nice to go through the pictures and humble back in time like withe these pictures. Our first biking vacation. Our youngest had decided to cycle the route on his own with all his packaging on his bike. He was only 9 years old and would not accept any help. I tell you, he made it and we were so proud of him!!

Materials I used: Bazzill, Tag from Kaiser Craft, DCWC Pets Blue Dots, Heidi Swap Photocorner (recolored), the Vaillant tag was on a pair of jeans when I bought it, Distress Ink to give the page a shabby look.

Thank you so much for your visit!!

This is the second card I made using a digi stamp from Mo´s. I love them! Easy to use, easy to store. Don´t you just adore this lovely lady that looks so satisfied? I saw this stamp on a card made by Filharmonica and was so inspired by it that I had to make one of my own. In a way it became a lift. Really can recommend everybody to take a look at her blog. Though I started coloring with the new markers from Tim Holtz, I had to reach out for my Promarkers (teagreen, greygreen, Sunkissed Pink, Satin, Blush, Henna, Blue grey 1,2 and 3, Midnight Blue). I didn´t feel comfy at all with the Distress markers. Supplies I used: The first layer is a bandage colored with Distress, Papers from My Minds Eye - Honey Cake and Bazill; Stamp from Mo´s Digital Pencil; Lace border on the inside from Tim Holtz; Little heart border is from Panduro; Circle with text is made with a Nestabillity. I used the font Copperplate and Exmouth. On the inside I pimped the text field with some ribbon and embossed one corner.

Thank you for dropping by and if you leave a little trace, you will make my day!

All of a sudden we are writing April...

Oh my... time really does fly.
During the Easter week - which in Norway lasts from Monday before Easter til the 2nd day of Easter (yes we are talking a whole week!!) - I managed to make two cards and to be honest I like both of them although I see there are some points that can be improved.
The first one is a Happy Birthday card made with a High Hopes stamp. Gorgeous little monkey don´t you think? Colored with Pro- and Flexmarkers. I really was inspired by the challenge of My Favorite Things but then, as usual, I had to go my own way :)
The lace is a die from Tim Holtz, the circle from Nestabillities.

The papers are from the collection bundle "Loyal" by Authentique. The flags are paper pierced. That counts for the cupcake as well.

Now, here comes my second card. Nice and smooth and....PINK!! I love the combo pink, green and choco brown. Hmmm.... I saw this stamp on a card made by Nicole and just knew I had to get my own. The chocolate eating little girl is a digi-stamp made by Mo´s Digital Pencil. Along with this sweetie I had some other stamps in my basket but more about these later. For now it´s all about chocolate :)

On this cards I used some Die-namics from My Favorite Things: The Chat Bubble and the Upsie Daysies. Papers are coming from Magnolia and the coloring is done with Pro- and Flexmarkers. The circle "Sending you Happiness" is made be me but with the inspiration from Nicole.

Adorable giraffes

Aren´t they sweet????
The stamp is from Whimsy Stamps and a really "must have". Colored with Promarkers (spice, honeycumb, sunflower, gold, cocoa and cinnamon.
Papers I´ve been using are from my local craft store Panduro and are called Beige Square / Beige Circle. The ornament stamp is as well from Panduro.
The flower is a real Upsie Daisy from My Favorite Things and the word "together" comes straight from my Slice. Isn´t that cute?
Thank you so much for dropping by!!
