Arabian Nights ~ Jasmin

 
Akkurat som med tag'en jeg viste frem i forrige innlegg, så har jeg brukt Hero Arts sitt klubb kit med '1001 natt' tema dies og stempler fra desember ifjor på kortet mitt. Denne gang sammen med et nydelig Jasmin inspirert stempelmotiv fra Whiff of Joy! Husker du tegnefilmen Aladdin? En av favorittfilmene mine fra Disney ♥ ♥ ♥

'You are extraordinary'

Just like on the genie tag on my previous blogpost, I have again used the fabulous Hero Arts kit from december of last year. It is an arabian nights theme wich is perfect for this beautiful Jasmin inspired stamp motif from Whiff of Joy ♥ She's the Disney princess in Aladdin remember? One of my all time favourite animated movies ♥ ♥ ♥

Using the super strong adhesive tape from Scor-Pal behind the window die I layed in the same diecut bits in other colors plus into the small holes I added IndigoBlu 'Megaflake Chocolate Box' gilding flakes. No need for messy glues for the flakes! The only liquid glue I love to use is the glossy accents n stickles to add the shiny special touch to details like the vase in the photo here :)

Arabian Nights ~ Genie

 
Jeg lagde en genie ~ ånden i lampen ~ tag til ei scrappe venninne ♥ Og det fantastiske Hero Arts klubb kit'et jeg fikk i desember passet perfekt til dette stempelmotivet fra Saturated Canary.
Krista Smith som lager disse nydelige motivene selger desverre ikke lengre digistempler selv, men du kan finne noen av hennes motiver hos Make it Crafty nå, og mange motiver som dette fins som gummistempler rundt om i scrappebutikker på nett :)


I'm absolutely loving the arabian nights themed Hero Arts kit! I made a tag for a friend (Hello Maja!) with a beautiful genie from Saturated Canary, and the hanging lamps, stencil and window die was a great match for this motif ♥
Krista Smith, the artist behind this beautiful genie motif, is sadly not selling her motifs as digis herself anymore, but Make it Crafty has some digistamps of hers, as well as new designs! And the Genie stamp is possibly still around to find as a rubberstamp like mine online :)

To heat emboss the star I used a Versamark inkpad, a heat gun tool and 'Aladine poudre à embosser OR gold' embossingpowder. I doodled some details on the stamp with a Micro fineliner black pen, wich is actually as you see here. She's a genie so she had to emerge from the lamp right? :)

Christmas Gift Tags

 
De øverste gavelappene lagde jeg til niesene mine jula som var ~ Frozen er vel populært enda eller? Håper det 😊 Veldig morsomme å lage, med 'shaker' vindu. Tenkte de kunne henge dem på juletreet som pynt etter at de pakket opp gavene! De andre gavelappene var ment for guttene i familien 👍

Frozen xmas tags

Elves xmas tags


Santa xmas tag

The round shaker gift tags I made for my nieces last christmas ~ I think Frozen is still popular? Hope so! 😊 They're very fun and easy to make, and I thought they would make a great christmas tree ornament after they unwrapped their presents! The rest of the tags I intended for the 'dudes' in the family 👍

I wish to enter my projects into theese fab Challenges

You are my Sunshine

 
Skrev i den forrige bloggposten min om de flotte månedlige kits'ene man kan få fra Hero Arts, og her er et par kort jeg lagde med det som kom i September i fjor. Det var litt vanskelig å stemple korrekt oppå hverandre med solsikke stemplene, så det var litt frustrerende, selv med hjelp av MISTI verktøyet mitt.. men jeg fikk det jo til til slutt da 🌞
Solsikken har vært min favoritt blomst helt siden jeg var ei lita jente, den eneste blomsten jeg har brydd meg om å plante i hagen 🌻 og jeg har etterhvert samlet mange pyntegjenstander, bilder og stempler med solsikke motiv 🌞
 🌻 MMH September 2017 Sunflower kit 🌻


In my previous blogpost I wrote about the fantastic Hero Arts monthly kits, and today I have a couple cards I made with last years September kit 🌻 It proved a bit difficult to line up the sunflower stamps correctly, even with my MISTI tool ~ layering stamps are frustrating for a perfectionist like me 😉
The sunflower has been my favourite flower since I was a little girl, and it was the only flower I've ever cared to plant and grow in the garden. I've also accumulated quite a large number of sunflower decorations through the years, and ofcourse whenever I see a pretty sunflower stamp I have to have it!🌞

Hakuna Matata!



~ Hakuna Matata
swahili for «Det er ingen bekymringer» eller «Det er intet problem»
🎵 Løvenes Konge forklarer det hele i sang! 🎵
 
Tags er kjappe å lage, og kan brukes både som pynt, gavelapper, prøve ut nye teknikker på, element i journaling eller som jeg bruker denne ~ bokmerke i en Doctor Who bok :)

I fjor begyndte jeg å abbonnere på Hero Arts sine månedlige kits, og det første jeg fikk i mai, var et nydelig havfrue kit. Dette Afrika/Safari temaet kom i juni, og jeg syntest begge var så utrolig flotte, at selv om jeg først hadde tenkt å bare kjøpe to kits, så fortsatte jeg å abbonnere ~ og jeg har ikke angret på den avgjørelsen! Du vet ikke hva du får på forhånd så det er som å gi en overraskelses gave til deg selv ♥
 
 MMH June 2017 Safari kit

For oss som bor i Norge er prisen overkommelig i og med at den inkludert porto ligger akkurat under tollgrensa (350,-). Enkelte mnd. har den såvidt bikket over tollgrensa, alt etter valutakurser og sånne svingninger, så det er en sjanse å ta ~ har bare fått fortollingsgebyr/moms gebyrer lagt på i tillegg to ganger. Og den ene gangen var fordi jeg kjøpte et ekstra stempel (kjempefine 'addons' hver mnd. med samme tema). Den andre gangen var det sånn 15 kr over grensa, litt kjipt da å måtte ut med 25% + fortollingsgebyret som jeg tror var på 130,- da. Men den den risikoen er verdt å ta syns jeg, når innholdet egentlig er verdt det dobbelte, og av og til tre-dobbelt av det man betaler i mnd. :)


Hakuna matata ~ a Swahili phrase meaning 
"no worries" or "there are no troubles"
🎵 the Lion King explains it in a song 🎵

Tags are quick to create & great for many things. This is currently beeing used as a bookmark in a Doctor Who novel ♥ 

Last year I started to subscribe on the My Monthly Hero Arts kits, and the first kit I got was the beautiful mermaid themed one in may. This Africa/Safari themed kit came out in June, and although I had initially planned on just getting a couple kits, I was so happy with them both that I continued my subscription! 
Each and every kit since then has been so versatile, full of goodies and the designs always gorgeous, a surprise gift to yourself each month ♥

Theese kits do sell out super fast. So if you are not a subscriber you might miss out as they do not make more of them, and because of that I do not know if I will ever be able to quit subscribing.. but why would I really? I'm addicted.. ;)
