Sweet Pea Stampers DT - Sexy

Hi there!
I've been so busy lately, that I haven't got the chance to make this post earlier. Just wanted to show you a picture of my DT card for the Sweet Pea Stampers challenge. This week we're asking you to create a card with the theme Sexiness
I think there are so many sexy Sweet Pea stamps, and I just love the ching-chou kuik stamps. And my favorite stamp is her "One and Only Heart" image :)
Well, here's my card (Sorry I made such a quick post and only one picture, there is so much going on right now...)

Size: 6" x 4"
Papers: Bazill White (carton), Tim Holtz Vintage shabby (dp's)
Stamps: ching-chou kuik for Sweet Pea Stamps One and Only Heart, Kreativ hobby (I love you sentiment) Heart stamp from Europris
Ink: Archival Ink Coffee
Others: Edges are distressed and inked. Half pearls from Basic Grey, glitterglue, pink tulle, flower center by Prima, Glossy Accents by Ranger added on the heart and the lips, Liquid pearls on the dress. Image is colored with Distress reinkers.

I hope to see your card on our challenge ;)
And yeah, I've got my new Sweet Pea Stamps! Three gorgeous stamps by Elisabeth Bell and four stamps by Katerina Koukiotis, they are all painted up (couldn't wait!!) but it seems like I'll have to wait to finish up my cards, less than 3 weeks until we get our new house!! Wuhuuu!! ;)
Have a wonderful weekend!

Kort og Godt - Bryllup

Travle dager her hjemme, bare 3 uker igjen til vi overtar vårt nye hjem, og fram til den tid er det myyye som må gjøres. Men formen min er dårlig for tiden, så jeg får slett ikke gjort så mye :( Men men, det går deg til, håper jeg :)
Denne måneden er tema hos Kort og Godt bryllup, så da tenkte jeg at det kunne passe bra å dele mitt bryllupsprosjekt med dere, jeg kjøpte det aller meste hos Kort og Godt, det passet så fint til det prosjektet. Bryllupet ligger nå 2 måneder bak i tid, men jeg har enda ikke fått delt noen bilder med dere, ting har vært så travle i det siste. Men nå kommer de! :)
Jeg laget invitasjoner, bordkort og menykort til dette bryllupet, og jeg koset meg masse med det. Kjempegøy å få være med å lage et design som falt i god smak hos brudeparet samt blant gjester og inviterte :)

Slik ble invitasjonene når de var lukket - laget nesten 70 invitasjoner :)

Brudeparets personlige monogram - stempelet fikk jeg laget hos

Invitasjonen fra innsiden. Bakgrunnsbildet er fra frieriet som ble gjort på Fjellheisen
(der bryllupsfesten ble holdt) Til venstre laget jeg en lomme med plass til svarkortet

Seglet som ble brukt på konvoluttene


Maaaange bordkort... Tror det ble ca 90 i tallet... :)

Menykortene til bordene - ett til hver gjest ;)

På baksida av menykortet var monogrammet stemplet på

De ferdig pyntede bordene :) Hver gjest fikk en liten pakke med et visdomsord og en rød hjertesjokolade ;)

En kuvert

Størrelse: 10x15cm (invitasjoner), 6,5x9,5cm (bordkort, brettet) ca25x10cm (menykort)
Kartong: Bazill White
Stempel: Personlig stempel fra
Annet: Rødt slørbånd fra Kort og Godt, Spellbinders label one, vellum papir. Privat bilde, redigert og tilpasset i fotoprogram. All tekst er skrevet på pc, skrifttype Vivaldi, og printet ut på kartong og vellum. Hjørnepuncher fra EK Success.

Ønsker dere alle en flott uke! Klem,

Faberoony Sketcharony birthday celebration ;)

In fact, I don't have time to make cards these days, there are SO much to do... We bought a new house last Saturday, and we're moving in September 15th. But I still struggle with lots of pain in my muscles and knuckles, the doctors don't seem to find out of it... I'm really tired of this now, and I've got so much to do, but I can't because of the pain... I think maybe the time has come to get a med.certificate from my doctor and get some weeks rest from work. I really don't want to do that, but at this point I have no better ideas of what to do....

Enough about pain!! Hey, there's a birthday celebration over at Cupcake Craft Challenges, and I just HAD to make a card with that funny sketch. I ended up with a CAS card, which is really untypical me, but I got SO inspired by all the gorgeous DT cards. Cazza had made a fab colorful card, and I kind of scraplifted her, I think ;) Thanks for great inspiration, girlies!!! :)
My card is made for my friend which turns 30 in a week. She's a tomboy kind of girl, and I thought she would like this kind of card :)
Here is a picture (only ONE this time... hmmm... What is happening to me?!?! LOL)

Size: 6" x 6"
Papers: Carton from Ursus and Bazzill, dp's from My Mind's Eye Lime & Twist 6x6 pad
Others: Handwritten swirl and edges. Heartshaped buttons, rub-on from Norsk Stempelblad. The monster is from Panduro. Numbers from Prima. Stickles Starry Night

Look at the fab prizes you can win if you enter the sketch challenge and find the hidden treasures!! ;)

Well... got to see if I get some things done... Thank you for visiting my blog. And yes... there will be candy, there's just SO much going on right now... But I want to celebrate with you creative girlies out there ;)
See ya!

10 years wedding anniversary ;)

Hello there!
On the 4th of August (Barack Obamas 50th b'day!!), my husband and I had our 10th Wedding Anniversary. A fantastic flower waited for me when I got up in the morning :) And when I came home from work late Saturday evening, my hubby had made a fantastic dinner with candlelights and wine. Wow, he's so fantastic to me!!! And today we're taking our three kids to the movies to watch Cars 2. I'm looking forward to that too ;)
Well, in fact I had a card to share with you... It's my "present" to my hubby - a card with some nice words inside... Boring, maybe - but he liked it :)
I just have to tell you a short story about the laces on the card - I didn't find "the perfect lace". But suddenly I remembered that I'd just thrown away lots of old clothes, and I hadn't been to the dunghill yet. Well, I digged through it and found the perfect lace - on an old bra...!! LOL Well, I guess I couldn't have used that lace on any other cards than my hubby's... Ha ha!! ;)
The card goes to the following challenges:

* Lili of the Valley Challenge - Roses
* ABC Challenge - Auburn hair

The finished card

My homemade hearts - shaped by scissors, painted with acrylic paint and sprayed with glimmermist

I love you :)

Halfpearls from Basic Grey

Roses - the pink one is from sweet Jacque, I won them in a candy! Lucky me!! ;)

Wishing you all a fantastic week!

CLP #39 - Sponsored by Whimsy Stamps!!

Hi there!
It sure has been some sad days here in Norway, after the massacre in Oslo and on Utøya on July 22nd. It's been really hard for me to create anything, I've been having so much going on in my mind...
But July has been a good month too - my family went on a short vacation in the middle of the month. And we've been having lots of nice, shiny weather. And in fact, it seems like we're going to get our own beautiful house in the end of this year. Exciting!! :)
The fall season is just around the corner - and in fact, I'm looking forward to that. Dark evenings with candles, a cup of tea and off course: CARDMAKING!! :)
Today we're starting the month of August with a new gorgeous sketch by Chelsea on the CLP Challenge blog.
This month we're sponsored by Whimsy Stamps!! Wuhuu!! They are having SO many gorgeous stamps, and the DT girlies was so lucky to get our own stamps to work with. I had already started to create my card with a gorgeous Kenny K image I had, but I'll sure create a card later with the images we got. Thanks a bunch for your generousity, Crystal !!!

Well... Here are some pics of my card:

The finished card - I gonna give it to my daughter who turns 9 years in two weeks. She's both cool and dressy, and I found this Kenny K image perfect for her ;)

Closeup pic of the image. I've added some glossy accents to her lips and some glitters to her jeweleries, but unfortunately that doesn't show up any good on the pic...

For a cool girl ;)

The rose has got some glitterglue on ;)
