To Pingvinkort.

Jeg har to helt enkle julekort som jeg vil vise i dag.


Begge er lavet med 'Merry Christmas' dien fra Memory Box. Den tror
jeg at jeg kommer til at bruge rigtig meget. 


Der er næsten ikke brugt mønsterpapir på nogle af kortene. 
Kun til et par halstørklæder til de søde pingviner fra Artemio,
købt hos Gitte fra Hobbyboden.

Mit tilværelse er lidt hektisk for tiden. 
Sidste uges kursus i Paris og denne uges efterårsferie
i sommerhuset i DK har bevirket at jeg ikke har haft tid
til at pleje min blog og mine blogvenner.

Men der er håb om at det bliver lidt roligere fremover.

Indian Summer with Stamp and Create with Magnolia.


Welcome to a new challenge at Stamp and Create With Magnolia.

This challenge is a bit late because Lacey is out of town and has no
internet connection untill later this Saturday.

The theme for the next two weeks is:

INDIAN SUMMER!



http://www.stampandcreate.com/

The prize for a lucky random winner is a free Magnolia stamp.



It's a long time since my last blog post,
I have been in Paris on a symposion last week,
and since that time has just flown away.

This was my first time in Paris but certainly not my last.
 Paris, I'll be back!



Indian Summer..... fall, leaves, harvest and autum colours!

This CAS card with Pie Tilda is my contribution for today's challenge.
I have coloured on kraft, trying to use a - to me- new technique,
blending the colours witout using mineral spirtis. 


I'll have to practice a bit more, but I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.

Please check out the great inspiration for this challenge at
 Stamp and Create with Magolia by the talented ladies on the design team.

To ski or not to ski, a DT card for HM&F.


I'm her today with a midway reminder for the

I'm hosting this challenge and my theme is

Paper Piecing!



I love paper piecing; taking a part og the image and cut it
out in some of the design paper. 

It can also be a way to rescue an image where the 
colouring didn't turn out the way you wanted.

I used a cute Gruffie bear ' To Ski or not to Ski' for today's card.

His scarf, boots and stiks are made in dp.


I've added some Stickles onto the image.

The embellishments are twine, a charm and
some bling added to the Memory Box die.


The backside is rather simple, my personal stamp and some dp.

Et lille trut!

Endnu et julekort er klart med et af mine HM stempler.


Jeg lavede egentlig dette kort som en påmindelse om vores 'Paper Piecing'
udfordring hos House Mouse & Friends men var ikke helt  
fornøjet med det. Jeg ved ikke om det er farverne eller hvad.


Stemplet hedder 'Sweet Music'  og mønsterpapiret er fra LOTV.
Bånd og charm er fra mine gemmer.

Jeg har brugt en die fra Memory Box til mønsterborden.

Rød julestjerne.

Jeg er bagefter med mine julekort, så da jeg i går fandt
dette papir med julestjerner på, var det helt perfekt at lave
et midvejskort til udfordringen hos ABC Christmas Challenge.

Vi er kommet til R i alfabetet,

R for 'Red Poinsettias' -altså rød julestjerne.



Det er ikke ofte jeg laver kort uden farvelagt stempelmotiv,
men dette tekststempel fra Papirdesign, egner sig både til at bruge
 inden i kortet og på forsiden.

Mønsterpapiret er fra Echo Park, julestjernen med perler er fra Prima.

De røde runde bånd er genbrug fra dette projekt, og jeg har metervis tilbage...

Paper Piecing with House Mouse & Friends.

Hello crafters and welcome to another rainy Monday in my part of the world.

But rain or not, this is a great Monday because House Mouse & Friends 
is here with a new challenge for you.

I'm so privileged being the host today,
and my theme is:

Paper Piecing!


I have made a birthday card using 'Balancing Act'.
Look at this cute Gruffie Bear, he is so concentrated.

As you can see I've cut out his apron from the design paper,
the papers are from 7Gypsies.


The round sentiment is from LOTV,
and the grey ribbon with the little cake charm,
is from my stash.


I didn't have enough paper to make the backside
as I wanted to, but here is the result.

R for Red Poinsettias, DT card for ABC Christmas Challenge.

It's Wednesday and time for a new letter at 

Bettina is hosting our challenge this time:

R for Red Poinsettias!



My card is super simple, I've been playing with my new Memory Box die,
saying 'Merry Christmas'. I have just ordered the 'Happy Birthday' one, and I'm
sure I'm gonna use them both a lot.

Back to my card; the MB die, some bling and a poinsettia
from Prima with a brad and voilà, card is ready.

Well, well I feel a bit like a cheater,
but I had a couple of ideas with this die,
and couldn't wait to try some of them out!

Just like a kid getting something new.....


The sponson for the P challenge is 



Prize - 4 Images of winners choice
