Til en dejlig pige!

Jeg har lavet et fødselsdagskort til en
dejlig pige som snart fylder 18 år.

Det er en stor dag.

Kortet er lavet efter sketchen fra marts måned hos Stempeleinmaleins.
Det er en blog med en månedlig sketchudfordring og en masse tutorials.

Jeg anbefaler stærkt et besøg.
Men først når du er færdig hos mig ;)

Inden i et stempel fra Tim Holtz, jeg synes det var
fint til en der skal ud i voksenlivet.

På den anden side en stribe af mønsterpapiret-
som er fra Maja Design-sammen med en bord
det er stanset ud med en Magnolia die.

Tilda er klippet ud og monteret på puder for at gi' dybde.
Blondekanten på bukserne har fået lidt Stickles.

Tekststemplene er fra Catslife Press.

Og ikke få chock nu, men jeg har farvelagt med mine Prismacolors!

Jeg synes Distresserne kan være lidt svære at bruge på store flader.
Så jeg var nødt til at prøve en anden vrid.

Bagsiden ligne forsiden, der blev plads til et par dies fra Spellbinders.

Min symaskine er lige kommet hjem fra justering/reparation,
så nu er den klar til at lave syninger på absolut ALT!

Fyr den af!!

Jeg har en ung mand som skal til 13 års fødselsdag senere i dag.
Der skal selvfølgelig et kort med.

Jeg lavede to nu jeg var igang, det ene kort med Black Bird.

Han er monteret på en dims som jeg lige nu
ikke kan huske hvad kaldes.
En slags spiral som gør at han kan bevæge sig.

Det andet er med den røde fugl, men ellers samme opsæt.

Slangebøssen er punchet ud med Wors Window punchen.
Græsset er lavet med en die fra Magnolia.
Skyerne er lavet med denne skabelon som Bev har lavet.

Her kan I fornemme 'dimsen'.

Jeg havde set den for længe siden på et kort,
og så startede den vilde jagt på at finde ud af
hvor den kunne skaffes.
Det lykkedes heldigvis som I ser.


Indvendig er der stemplet tillykke, med et stempel fra Kreativ Hobby.
Der er plads til en pengeseddel bag.

H for Hardwear, A Mid Way reminder at ABC Christmas Challenge

Today I'm posting a reminder for the ongoing challenge at

ABC Christmas Challenge.

The letter is H and stands for:

Hardwear.


Use some metal on your card, this can be
anything metal like brads, paperclips, charms,
pins, staples... We can't wait to see what you'll use.

There are two sponsors for this challenge,
please jump to the challenge blog for details.

Great prizes, you won't be disappointed.


We also have a DT call at ABC Christmas Challenge.
Take a look here for details and how to apply.



My card today is monochrome, with the colours
blue and white, a lovely combination.

Papers from Basic Grey 'Eskimo Kisses'.

The image is 'James Bear- Sledging Along'
from LOTV. He's adorable!


The metal I have used on my card are the pins.

The ribbon is Seam Binding, I love the curly look.

On the image I have added a lot of stickles,
onto the snow and the ribbon on the gifts.

The sparkling snowflake is made with
a die from Marianne Design.


The inside is decorated a bit like my team mate Lacey does on her cards.
A punched border made in designpaper.

Maybe I'll name the way of decorating like this:
' The Lacey Way'


The front in miniatur, with my personal stamp.


I have used the sketch from this weeks challenge at
Allsorts Challenge Blog.


If you do need some more inspiration, head to the
ABC Challenge Blog and have a look at the work the lovely
DT has made for the reminder.

I'm sure you will get yourself some great ideas.

Enjoy your day!

Anything Goes, DT card for HM&FMC.

Hello crafters, hope you all had a lovely weekend,
did you have time for some crafting??


It's Monday and a new challenge at

Stacy is our host and she wants you to

Grab some Tea for Anything Goes!



Today I have inked up one of my new Gruffies,
'All Warm & Furry'.
You can find him here at the House-Mouse Design shop.

Oh my, he was tricky to colour. First I tried to
use my Distress Reinkers, but NO good.

I had another go, with the same lousy result!

I decided to dust of my Prismacolour Pencils
and give them a try.
My colouring is not perfect, but OK, I think.
I need to practice a lot more with them.


I have paper pieced the teapot.

The pearl swirl is from Prima (?), a gift from a blogging friend.
Thanks.

The ribbon is seam binding coloured with Glimmermist,
there's a little teapot charm, too.

I have used a swirl stamp from Stempelglede around the image.
It's not often I do that, and today I'm not happy
with the way it came out!

But when it's stamped it's stamped!!


The in side is decorated with the same Gruffie,
and a punched border, the punch is from Martha Stewart.


The back side came out like this today,
a Gruffie masked together with my 'handmade by' stamp.


I have used Dawny's sketch from Simon Says Stamp.


For this challenge we have to fabulous sponsores:



Giving a $10 gift package from the store.



Giving a $25 gift certificat to the HMD shop.

Konfirmationsindbydelser.

Hurra, konfirmationsindbydelserne er sendt! 

 Jeg er så langsom til at bestemme mig for
 hvordan ting skal laves!

For længe siden besuttede jeg mig for hvilken stil
indbydelserne skulle være i, købte diverse dies og stempler
og fandt omsider det papir jeg ville bruge.

Men vejen derfra har været lang!

Efter diverse prøveprojecter, et træf på Hobbyhimmelen
med hyggelige scrappevenner og diverse frem og tilbage,
blev resultatet som I ser her


Motivet er 'Umbrella Man' fra Tim Holtz, 
stemplet har desværre fået en trandportskade
så jeg var nødt til at ha' gang i den sorte tuch.

I ser det på hans venstre skulder, øv.
Jeg har bestilt et nyt!

Papiret er fra FabScraps.


Embossingfolderen er også en Tim Holtz ting,
Jeg tror den kommer til at blive brugt meget på 
mine fremtidige drenge/mandekort.

De dies jeg har brugt er fra Spellbinders.


Konfirmanten skrev for nogle år siden et vers om Tid.
Jeg synes det er utrolig fint og passede godt her.

Dien jeg her brugt til verset har jeg lånt af Henriette; tusind tak. 
Hvis du er rigtig heldig, får du dem igen.

 

I min ubeslutsomhed kom jeg på at snorene
 også kunne ordnes sådan...

Forøvrigt glemte jeg mit sædvanlige 
'lavet af' stempel på bagsiden.

Nu arbejdes der med bordkort, sangskjuler og bordækning!

Anything Goes With Flowers, DT card for FFF.


Margreet is hosting the next bi-weekly challenge at
Fairy Fun Friday.

She has picked a wonderful theme:

Anything Goes With Flowers!


                         
I have used 'Purrrfect Friends' one of Roberta's cute digi images.
She's a darling!

My design paper are from Maja Design,
flowers and ribbon from my stash.


   I haven't made a folded card in ages, so today I had to.
It's called a wiper card , I found a tutorial at the
WOJ inspiration blog.

I have one problem with wiper cards;
there is NO place to write a regard!


So I had to make a tag with a Magnolia doohickey
and stamped a sentiment at the front and wrote a 
little' hello' at the other.

The sentiment says something like:
' Getting older is great. When you consider the alternative'.


So sweet, arn't they ??

The border punch I've used is a favoutite of mine.
It's from Martha Stewart, great for even a male card.
                                
Nothing new here, my personal stamp and some die cuts.

H for Hardware, DT card for ABC Christmas Challenge.

ABC Christmas Challenge is here with a new challenge for you.

Samantha is hosting today and has picked the theme

H for Hardware!

Use some metal on your creation, it can be charms,
brads, metal corners or pins.
It's all up to you.

But remember your project has to be Cristmas related.



This week we are also having a DT call.
We want to add 3 Christmas Crazy Crafters to
our friendly Design Team.

The DT CALL will be open for the 2 weeks!
and will finish with the challenge.



Please see the challenge blog for more details.






I have used this fabby Edwin image from Magnolia.
Lighting Edwin he's called.

The metal I have added is brads and a charm.

The papers are from Maja Design, I find them so wonderful.


I couldn't resist using the light chain with bubbles.
Perfect for poor Edwin.

For the red border I have used a punch from Martha Stewart.
The checked ribbon is from my stash.


Todays back side is like always;
the front in miniatyr.

I have copied the way Lacey often decorates
the inside with some dp and a punched border.

I think it looks great, so Lacey, thank you for the idea!



I have fliped the sketch from Hanna and Friends.




The sponsor for the ABC Christmas Challenge
is our own Lacey from Stamp and Create.


One lucky random picked winner will receive
a $25 Gift Voucher to the shop.

Jeg vandt, jeg vandt


Jeg var så heldig at vinde Mars Utfordringen hos Kortgleder
Temaet var  Påske/Vår og jeg deltog med dette kort
med motiv fra Stamp Fairy.

 

I dag kom præmine, to søde stempler fra  Leane Creatief,

 

og to flotte dies af samme mærke.
Helt perfekt da jeg længe har haft lyst til at købe mig et stakit! 

Og øh, stempler kan man aldrig få for mange af, kan man?
  

Vi ses i morgen til en ny udfordring hos ABC Christmas Challenge.
Vi er kommet til H for....

So Sweet, a midway reminder for HMFMC.

Here is a quick reminder for our ongoing challenge at 

Jennifer is the host of this challenge
and has picked a really great theme.

She would like to see projects  that are just

So Sweet!
Make a creation that includes your favourite
sweet, chocolate or candy.

It's all up to you how you interpret the sweetness!


I have used a Christmas image for my card,
Candy Gram it's called.

I was so inspired by Sue Kment's lovely card last week that I had
to make one myself with the same image.

 

The papers are from Echo Park ' Be Mine'.

Flowers, charm and ribbon are from my stash.


I had to make a special 'made by' stamp at the back side.
 A little mousie masked together with the circle with my name.
 
 

 I have also decorated the inside a little bit.

A punched heart  border- from Magnolia- and the 
same mouse as I used on the back side.


We have to sponsors for this challenge.
