AMB Illustrations is our new sponsor at Creative Fingers for challenge #123., and some of the DT's have used motifs from there. The rest of us is showing you our favourite projects from 2016. There are so many I could name my fave, but this art journal spread is one I'm very proud of ♥
https://www.etsy.com/no-en/shop/StarStampz

The main image is the book fairy from Star Stampz and as always it is an 'Anything goes' theme. You are more than welcome to join with your creations!
More information on the products used is on my original blog post here :) 

We've also drawn our three Creative Fingers Christmas BlogCandy ~ Winners! And Damjana was the lucky winner of my surprise candy. Andrea Bastelmaus and Glennis F NZ got Angeliques awesome stamp sets :) 
A big congrats to all of you! ♥
 

I have created a color swatch chart for my distress inks and various ink sprays into a .pdf file of my scanned chart. 
(It's a blank one I had drawn in approx. A5 size with all the names only. The first ten pages has the distress ink names on it, the next pages are some of my other inks, so when printing, print out pages 1 - 10. Or all pages if you want those too ofcourse!) 
You may use it as your own color referance, if you'd like to have it? It sure made my life easier! I can now find the excact shade of color and match it up to my images when I paint :)

BTW. It may need extending as Tim Holtz is coming out with a new distress ink poduct soon, ink pad with an awesome new effect ~ Oxide ink pads

You can download the .pdf file here ~ freebie for your own private use!
Do not share it ~ instead direct people here, thanks :)

Happy New Year! ♥ Christmas card

♥ Godt Nyttår! Beste ønsker for det nye året ♥

Elisabeth Bell lager fantastiske motiver, både i gummistempler og digitale, og jeg har utrolig mange av begge deler.. siden jeg ikke kan la være å 'eie' det når jeg ser et nydelig stempel ♥ Du kan finne dette og mange flere Elisabeth Bell  stempler hos PapirPlaneten under flere stempelprodusenter som Belles & Whistles, Sugarnellie, Whiff of Joy, Ladybug and friends og SCACD :)

Dette kortet er mitt bidrag for årets første utfordring hos PapirPlaneten:

~  Januar: Vinter tema ~


♥ Happy New Years & Best wishes to all for 2017 ♥

My christmas card today is a DT inspiration for PapirPlaneten, a norwegian challengeblog and shoppe, where the January challenge is all Winter themed :) My main motif is an Elisabeth Bell stamp from SCACD named 'Cherry Blossom', I thought it looked a little newyears-y ♥ Sorry about the dark pics, the white looks grey for some reason!

Det beste jeg vet med kortlaging er å trylle med akvarellmaling, dies og papirer ~ og bruke mine distress inks og twinkling H2Os. Jeg er ganske så flink å fargelegge, og er vel noe av en perfeksjonist når det kommer til hvordan jeg plasserer ting på en kreasjon, ingenting er skjevt - medmindre det er gjort med vilje ;)

Merry Christmas ♥ CF Blogcandy!


Vi nærmer oss jul, bare ei uke igjen nå! Disse er veldig kjappe kort å lage, enkle og ensfarget ~ med en av mine favoritt Tim Holtz teknikker med Distress ink farger, Evergreen Bough blekkpute og vann dryppet på bakgrunnen, tørkepapir for å trekke opp noe av fargen ♥ Hoved motivet er et juletre stempel fra North Star Stamps og det er varme-embosset med flere lag embossing pulver. Enkelt men veldig lekkert :)

There is a fabulous Christmas blogcandy over at Creative Fingers, and if
you enter before Dec.31st., you may be one of our three lucky winners!
I'm sponsoring the #1. surprise candy, which is full of 
Stamps, Ribbons, Bling, Papers & other goodies! 
 And our Angelique is kindly donating six plus four amazing 
stamp sets for winners #2. and #3. ♥ ♥ ♥
 
*** Merry Christmas ***

We're closing in on christmas now, only about a week to go :) Theese cards are very simple cards, all monochrome and quick to create. The christmas tree stam has been heat embossed in green, several times to get a good 3d effect. The journaling page inside and background on the first card are made with the distress ink Evergreen bough and flicking water droplets, removing some color with kitchen paper ~ one of my favourite Tim Holtz techniques to do ♥
