Angel Eyes and some Fluttering

Hello to all of you!! ;)

Today I've been mountainwalking with my three kids on a schooltrip. One boy on my back, one walking in front of me - and my girlie walking with her friends :) We had a great walk, and the weather was so beautiful (but Fall is definitly here, the temperature is a little low...) The boys and I left early and they are taking a "timeout" on the couch... Ha ha...
Yesterday I made a card outside in the beautiful weather. I just got some new stamps from Kreativ Hobby, one of them is the fantastic Angel Eyes Princess stamp. The Angel Eyes stamps are just SO cute - I love them all! But I unfortunately couldn't afford them all... *lol*
My card goes to the following challenges:

* Sketchy Colors - Sketch
* Flutter By Wednesday's - Open challenge, add a butterfly, angel or fairy (Next week they are having a HUGE surprise for the winner, and to win you've had to enter their challenge at least once before - you don't want to miss that opportunity, do you?!?)

Halloween at Karen's Doodles

Today I've been making a card for Halloween... In Norway Halloween isn't that "big" as in many other countries. But since I found this fantastic and supercute freebie from Karen's Doodles, I really wanted to make my first Halloween card ever :)
I thought this could be the birthdaycard for a friend of my daughter who turns eight on November 2nd. She usually has a Halloween Birthday Party. And since the image is a really cutie, I found it appropriate for a little girls card (not too scary...) I've tried to make a cute Halloween card, if that exists... *lol*

This card is for the following challenges:
* Karen's Doodles NL Doodle Divas - Use the Kitty Cat digi on your project
* Friday Sketchers Blog - Sketch #116

Miiiaaaaaaoooooo... ;)

A boo! from My Mind's Eye

The inside of the card

Image: "Kitty Cat" from Karen's Doodles
Papers: Carton - Struktura Basic 1 from Ursus. Designpapers - Boo! To You! from My Mind's Eye
Coloring: Watercolorpencils, brush and water
Others: Felt Flowers from Panduro. Die Cuts from My Mind's Eye. Spellbinders die - label four. Spiders, bats and pumpkins are spangles. The "dusty spiderwebs" are cotton. Machinesewing. Glittered brads. All edges are blackened with Distress Ink Spiced Marmalade from Ranger. Dimentional tape.

And then I just have to end this post by telling all of my visitors thank you so much for visiting my blog, and: I looove comments... *lol*
Next week I have some good news that I'll share with you - and maybe there will be one more thing I'll share with my sweet followers....?!? ;)

Enjoy the evening!

Ett Trykk og CLP Challenge

Igår viste jeg dere kortet jeg laget til min datters 8års dag. Om litt over 2 uker, fyller minstemann to år. Og siden jeg starter opp i ny jobb og har endel prosjekter på gang framover, så har jeg vært tidlig ute med å lage kortet hans. I tillegg fikk jeg nylig de 5 stemplene jeg vant hos Motivet Rubberstamps, og kunne ikke vente med å begynne å lage noe med dem!!! :)
Kanskje synes du at det ikke er så viktig å gi et kort til en toåring som kun interessert i gaven - men jeg tenker at han kanskje kommer til å sette pris på kortet når han blir voksen, ihvertfall ;) 
Hi there!
Yesterday I posted my daughter's birthdaycard and today I'm posting my youngest son's birthdaycard. He turns two in a few weeks, and since I'm starting in my new job this week and got lots of projects going on, I thought I should finish my son's card. And I got my five new stamps that I won from Motivet Rubberstamps, and I just HAD to color them up! ;)
Maybe you think my son is too young to like getting a card when the presents are the most funny part of turning two years, but I think he will enjoy it when he's getting a grownup anyhow....?!? ;)

Kortet er laget med utgangspunkt i følgende utfordringer:

* Ett Trykk - fargekombo/colorcombo

* CLP Challenge - Sketch #28

Her kommer noen bilder av kortet:

Forsiden av kortet

Eddie - som har fått seg en brad på glidelåsen sin ;)

Rubons bokstavene og litt av papirborden

Knappene fra mormors gamle samling - jeg har arvet tusenvis i alle mulige farger - og de kommer UTROLIG godt med (knapper er en av mine favorittpyntestæsj! Thi hi! )

Innsiden - heeeelt enkel med de samme papirene som på forsida ;)

Papir: Kartong fra Ursus, designpapirer fra DCWV - The Green Stack
Stempel: Motivet Rubberstamps - Eddie
Fargelegging: Akvarellblyanter med pensel og vann
Annet: Spellbinders - Deckled Rectangles. Rubons bokstaver, glitrende klistremerketall, knapper, brun bomullstråd, blå minibrad. Selvheftende papirblonde fra Europris.

Håper dere likte det dere har sett! Tusen takk for at du besøkte bloggen min - legg gjerne igjen en liten hilsen :)
I hope you liked my card. Thanks a lot for visiting my blog - and feel free to leave me a comment ;)

My daughter's Birthdaycard

Hello there!

Today I'm posting the card I made for my daughter Martine's birthday. She turned 8 years yesterday, and we've been celebrating for two days. One day with cheesecake, brownies, cupcakes and blueberry pie with blueberries Martine and I picked the day before the party :) And yesterday we had a party at "Metro Lekeland" - an inside playground with room for lots of physical activity ;) And of course, there were pommes frites, soda, slush, popcorn, icecream and lollipops - anything you need for a perfect 8years celebrating party!! *LOL* The kids seemed to enjoy the day, being with me and my family all day long! *LOL*
Well, enough about the party, I'll share the b'day card with you. I just won 5 fantastic stamps from Motivet, and I couldn't wait to color them up! And since my daughter loves animals, I thought the Hilda with flowers stamp would fit perfect for her card :) And she's in a "non-pink period" right now, so I had to make her a card with just a little girly pink color! *LOL*
This card goes to the following challenges:

* Friday Sketchers - Sketch #115
* Scrappekammeret - Hearts
* Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Summertime Blues

The inside - as simple as it gets ;)

Stamp: Motivet Rubberstamps - Hilda With Flowers
Coloring: Watercolorpencils plus shade around made with Promarkers - Ivory

Wedding (anniversary) card

Thanks for visiting my blog :)
I found this great blog some days ago - Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings - and they got this challenge going on,- black and white. I just had to enter this challenge on this great challenge blog :) I'm also entering the challenge at Scrappekammeret - use hearts.
I've made one more candle card (tealightcard) - this one is for a wedding anniversary, but I think it also would fit great as a wedding card, if the present would be candleholders ;)
Here are some pics :

The card, folded

My homemade doodle embellishment ;)

Best wishes for your day and the future (Please, pretend like you don't see how big troble I am having with this embossingpowder!! LOL! I've been brushing and brusing but even the tiniest piece of powder makes big marks...)

The card opened up

Homemade pearl heart

The backside of the card with my personal stamp glued on a stamp from Kreativ Hobby with 3D dots :)

Papers: Black carton from Ursus, dp's from Making Memories (Glitter Stripe I Do)

I hope you liked my creation - I'm sure going to buy a new black distressing powder, because my brushes are all worn-out after this project... LOL! I'm sure there is some tricks - I just don't know about them yet!! Ha ha!
Wish you all a fantastic day! I'm going to bake a cheesecake and some more goodies for my daughter's birthday. She's 8 on Monday, and we are having a familyparty tomorrow ;)
Thanks for visiting - and a comment will get me happy! Ha ha ;)

A warming card :)

Tusen takk for at du besøker bloggen min :)
Jeg er blitt så inspirert av den flotte tutorialen på telyskort som stod i siste utgave av Ett Trykk. Nå som midnattsola er borte og vi får mørke, deilige høstkvelder, passer det utrolig godt å gi bort et kort som kan varme og lyse opp kveldene
Jeg har akkurat fått nye, nydelige stempler fra Kreativ Hobby, og bare MÅTTE prøve de!! ;)
Hi there and thanks for stopping by ;)
I've got so inspired from the tea light card tutorial in the latest Ett Trykk magazine. And now that the midnightsun has left for this summer and we're having dark, wonderful autumn evenings, I think it's great to give away a card that can warm and light up the evenings ;)

Kortet er mitt bidrag til denne ukens utfordring hos Flutter By Wednesday, der det er åpen utfordring, husk å bruke en sommerfugl, en fe eller en engel/Open challenge, add a butterfly, fairy or angel.
I tillegg leverer jeg den som bidrag til utfordring #4 hos Vintageudfordring - bruk blomster/use flowers

Here's the card when it's folded

Tea lights

The butterfly has got some pearls and Distress Ink

I've made some swirls by glueing halfpearls onto the swirls in the dp's :)

"Magic is found in the small moments that brightens up the day. The art is to discover them"
Ouch... bad translation!! LOL

The card opened up. I've made a panel with space for a personal message. The sentiment says something like: "We're having a round head so that the thoughts won't go in only one direction"

The backside with my personal stamp :)

Stamps: Kreativ Hobby, personal stamp from Scrapmagasinet
Papers: Carton from Ursus, dp's from Notabene
Ink: Top Boss Embossing stamp - tinted, Distress Ink Vintage Photo from Ranger
Others: Embossing Powder Copper from Aladine. Butterfly from Karen Marie Klip. Spellbinders die label four. The flowers are altered from an old candle decoration from grandma. Halfpearls and leafes from

Wishing you all a fantastic day - I'm heading outside again in the beautiful weather!!! ;)
Lots of love,

Martine lager bursdagskort

Hi there!
Here's some pics of the latest card for my daughter Martine. She has made a birthdaycard for my niece -she's Martine's "aunty" because my niece and I are very close, almost like sisters ;)
We've made one card each for her, using the same papers. If you want to, you can see my card here.
Martine is 7 years old, but turns 8 on August 16th, and she's really looking forward to her birthday. And she loves to craft together with me :)
Martine is entering the following challenges with her card:

* Kona Kid Krafter's - Animals
* Childrens Challenge Corner - Ribbons and bows
* Sir Stampalot Challenge - Bring on the Bling
* Pollycraft Challenge - Fit for a Princess
* Lollipop Crafts - Anything goes
* By the Cute and Girly - Animal Antics

Papers and carton from Ursus. The dog is cut from a paper bought at Panduro. Princess tiara ribbon from Notabene. Bling.

Look at this cutie!!

"I hope your day will be just as beautiful as you! ;)
The sentiment stamp is from Kreativ Hobby, and we've embossed it in shimmering powder

This flower is from Martine's princess shoe, and when it fell off she wanted to use it on her card. (She's just like her mother, always thinking "can this be used for papercrafting?! LOL)

Thanks for visiting, please leave a comment for Martine ;)
Hugs, Martine and her mother,
