Pastel Goth Lucinda


Jeg elsker Betty Roberts sine motiver og 'Lucinda' er en nydelig digi mottatt for å delta i Simply Bettys Facebook Pastell Goth Challenge :)
Brukte flere timer på dette kortet, ikke helt enkelt med pasteller, men utfordrende og moro ble det!


I absolutely love Betty's images and this lovely 'Lucinda' I got as a freebie to participate on Simply Betty Stamps Facebook challenge. It was a joy to color in a goth theme ~ with pastel colors, a bit tricky to find in my stash though ;)

The Best Sister in the World!


Jeg var så heldig å vinne en utfordring på Elisabeth Bell's World challenge blog, (med dette kortet) og mottok både flotte digistempler og ble invitert til å gjeste feb. mars utfordingen deres med temaet 'favoritt EB motiv' :) Jeg har utrolig mange favoritter og uendelig med stempler i samlingen min ~ men dette er absolutt et av de nydeligste ♥
'the Worlds best Sister'

I was so lucky to win one of the Elisabeth Bell's World Challenges, (with this card) and received both some gorgeous digis as a prize and got invited to join as a guest DT :) The theme for february-march is to use a favourite image by EB. and it was really difficult to pick just one, as I have probably a hundred faves among my collection! This rubberstamp is just one of the cutest ever ♥

Ladybug Hugs!


Bugaboo Stamps og ScrappyDew har sponset utfordring #125. hos Creative Fingers, og jeg har vært så heldig å få denne søte marihøne-familien fra Bugaboo ♥ Du er hjertelig velkommen til å delta. Det er alltid 'Lag-hva-du-vil' som tema! :)

Nå som sola er tilbake så passer det vel å ta frem de varme fargene igjen (selv om det fremdeles er iskaldt her nord).. Sola er 'drodlet' på arket med glossy accents, og gir både en morsom bakgrunn for motivet, tekstur og en lur måte å lime den detaljerte diesen fast med!

http://creativefingerschallengeblog.blogspot.com


For this fortnights challenge #125 at Creative Fingers, we have two lovely sponsors, Bugaboo Stamps and ScrappyDew!
I have been so lucky to get this cute ladybug family from Bugaboo to ink up as my DT project ♥ The challenge is as always themed Anything Goes, and you are most welcome to join in! :)  


Now that the sun has made a return here in the northern parts of Norway, (still freezing though) it's time to pull out warm colors for my card. The funky sun is actually glossy accents, and it gives texture and an easy way to adhere the intricate diecut. Ladybug noses & antennas plus some hearts have also gotten glossy on them, while the text has been heat embossed. Finished it off with a spray of mica. LOVE adding shine to my cards!

Mermaids Magic Wish ~ Bookmark Tag


Jeg har ei niese som elsker havfruer, ikke så rart ettersom hun heter Ariel ♥ Denne tag'en tenkte jeg hun kan bruke som et bokmerke! Det er det jeg bruker mine tags til, leser mange bøker og blader og jeg hater 'eselører' ;)
Det var egentlig meningen jeg skulle lage denne til Ching Chou Kuiks fb gruppe, siden den var en freebie, men internett fjusket i går så da ble jeg for seint ute.. MEn blogges må den jo selfølgelig, ble veldig fornøyd med fargekombinasjonen her, Tim Holtz sine distress inks er sååå fine ♥ ♥ ♥ Gleder meg til å få tak på de nye DI Oxide blekkputene ~ for en effekt! Kjempelekkert ~ se videoen her ♥ 
(EDIT: fikk være med alikevel :)


A bookmark tag for my niece Ariel ~ who ofcourse is nuts about mermaids ♥
Sadly I was not able to enter my tag into the challenge it was created for ~ the digistamp was a CCK freebie, soOo pretty! But internet was out so I was not able to get it in until today. I added it to the CCK FB group anyways just to share, but ofcourse not entering the draw :)
(EDIT: My entry was valid said Bonnie, cool :)
https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=oa.1200104173359221&type=3
I was very happy with my coloring on this, Tim Holtz distress inks are always just dreamy to paint with.. And did you see? On Creativation (CHA) he announced new Oxide inkpads!!! ♥ AWESOMENESS ♥ Cannot wait to get theese to play with :)
