DT-bidrag etter sommeren

 Nå er det lenge siden sist jeg delte noe her i bloggen, har vært mer opptatt av å dele på de to stedene hvor jeg er med medlem av DesignTeamet, nemlig Hobbygarasjen og Scrap the Rainbow.

Da kan



Det er på tide å vise frem litt inspirasjon til temaet denne måneden "Alt er lov", og hvorfor ikke vise et kort som jeg ble inspirert til å lage? Så nemlig et skikkelig stilig kort hos Ranger, helt "Clean and simple". Jeg ville gjøre litt mer utav det, så her er det:

Legger med et bilde av kortet sammen med produktene som er brukt:

Stempler: Papirdesign - Vipps og Papirdesign - Ha en fin dag
Blekk: VersaFine Clair i fargene: Tulip RedSummertimeCheerfulVerdant, Paradise (kan erstattes med Blue Belle), Fantasia, Purple Delight og Morning Mist
Kortbase: Creotime

Vi er på god vei inn i konfirmasjonssessong og siden Maja Design akkurat har kommet med den nydelig serien Miles Apart tenkte jeg å bruke de til et konfirmasjonskort til en gutt.

Inni kortet stemplet jeg et at Papirdesign sine "Vipps" -stempler

Selve arket er så fint at man fint kan bruke det til å pynte baksiden også. Jeg fant fram et gammelt stempel med stjerner og stemplet litt her og der for å pynte opp litt


Mønsterark: Maja Design - Miles Apart Stay Home

Dies: Bølger Elisabeth Craft og Papirdesign Konfirmant

Stempel: Papirdesign Vipps

Stempelpute: Versafine Clair Acorn

Kartong: Bazzill Java og Vanilla

Blomst: Prima - Naples Shore/Capri

Scrap the Rainbow

Jeg har laget bursdagskort til ei god venninne som fylte 50 i juni, hun er ei «fresk dama» som liker sterke farger. Det er brukt Distress Oxides, stensil fra Aall&Create og Giogiocraft og dies fra PapirDesign og Sizzix.

Så jeg lekte meg med en gelli plate og lagde bakgrunnen selv med akrylmaling, et par stensiler og en bit bølgepapp. Pyntet med et par buttons, litt glittertråd og en Primablomst.


Hobbygarasjen: Det er ikke så lenge siden Maja Design kom med en ny kolleksjon som bl.a. passer ypperlig til konfirmasjonskort til jenter.
Så her har jeg brukt Creotime kortbaser, Maja Desing Miles Apart møsterark Have Faith og Thninking of youstempel av kjole fra Elisabeth Craft, dies av kjole fra Elisabeth Craft, og "Konfirmant"-dies fra PapirDesign, rose fra Prima.
Jeg har denne gangen laget et slimlinekort hvor jeg har stemplet en blomst flere ganger på mørkeblå kartong, embosset med gull og malt med oransje glitterakrylmaling (Starlights).

Growing in Unity-Bloghop

Hi there and welcome to the Unity blog hop.
If you have been hopping already, thank you for continuing. If you started here, please visit the other blogs on this hop. Remember to leave a comment on each blog for your chance to win a price from Unity.

I´m curretly on summer vacation, so I have very limited cardmaking supplies with me, but still brought a few Unity stamps with me, and here are the results:

The first card is made with the stamps in the «Good vibes only», and it´s so fitting, since this is the first year we are on holiday with our new (old) caravan.

We are currently visiting my Mum, and she was in need of some condolency cards. Now, I didn´t bring any sentiment stamps specifically for those occasions, but the motif and the sentiment in the «Trust it will be okay»-kit was rather fitting. I stamped withblack ink and coloured with Infusions in the colour «Rocky Road».

The third and last card is also one made for condolency, and here I made a 3-layer card with the Beautiful Birthday Wishes set. Sometimes no words are needed.

Thanks for looking, now hop on to see what Trudi has made :)

Caffeinated card for challenge

Coffee loving cardmakers are hosting a bloghop to celebrate spring summer, and I've made a couple of coffee cards to enter the challenge, here's a couple of pictures:

I've used coffee stamps from Unity stamp co and Papirdesign, and the background is made with Distress Oxides in Hickory Smoke and Ground Espresso

Growing in Unity Friday

It's Friday! I can't believe how quickly this week has gone. Today I've got a couple of coffee cards for you. I took the cue from the coffee stamp included in the April 2020 Kit of the Month.

One of my favourite colour combinations in the Distress Oxide range is Ground Espresso with Hickory Smoke and I created the background by using the "smooshing" technique, you smoosh the ink pad on a piece of acetate or glass, mist it with a little water and press the paper in to the ink. Heat set and repeat with a different colour, build as many layers as you want. I usually find that if I don't really like the background after a couple of layers I haven't added enough, so I keep going. If I in the end find I really don't like it, well it's just paper.
The small coffee cups stamped on the background is from the December 2019 Kit of the Month and I used VersaFine Clair ink in the Acorn colour.
I added some old lace and a ribbon to give the card an "old café feeling".

Growing in Unity - Thursday

Wow, Thursday already! It is amazing how quick the time flies. This time I want so show you two cards with the Donna Poppies. I cut the panel first and mounted the stamp in my Misti stamping tool, stamping first one flower in the corner and then turning the paper 180 degrees and stamping again. VersaFine Onyx black was the ink used and the poppies were coloured with Dylusions Postbox red spray ink. Splatted the card with water and lifted off some of the colour to create more life. I made black frames with my Gina Marie Designs wonky rectangles and mounted the panel with 3D foams strips on the card. The diecut is from Papirdesign and is the Norwegian word for Congratualtions

The second card was made more or less the same way, but this time I fuzzy cut the blooms and mounted them on the frame. The sentiment is from the January 2020 Say it with Love sentiment kit the orange butterfly is from the same kit

Growing in Unity Wednesday

Hello all! Today I've got a couple of butterfly cards, I simply adore butterflies.

 This card started with little piece of white paper where I played around with when I first got my blending brushes from Picket Fence: I grabbed a butterfly stencil from Prima, some Distress Oxide stamp pads and went to town. I stamped the small butterflies from the April 2020 Kit of the Month, cut a small panel from the test paper, added the big butterfly from the July 2019 Kit of the Month that I stamped, coloured and fuzzy cut before I glued them on top. The sentiment is from the April kit.

Growing in Unity - Tuesday

Today I have two similar cards to show you. I just love galaxy cards, there's just something so dreamy about them, and I thought it would be perfect with a galaxy background for the stamp of the woman looking out on the stars and planets from the February 2020 Kit of the Month. All the stamps used on these cards are from that kit.

On this first card, I made the background, and after I made sure it was dry I stamped and embossed with white embossing powder the motif. The text is stamped with white pigment ink on black cardstock
This second card was made the same way as the first, but here I limited the number of colours for the background to 3, the first one was a full rainbow 7.

Growing in Unity (GUI) Monday

If you've come by my blog earlier you might have an inkling that I like the Stamps from Unity Stamp co. Well you might say that i LIIIIIIKE them, and some of them I do love. So when I got the opportunity to be Growing in Unity Girl I was more than happy.
Yesterday was Norways Constitution day which usually is celebrated with childrens parades, marching bands, and lots of fun and people in the streets. Due to Covid-19 the celebrations were a bit different this year, but we celebrated all the while. So to mark the national holiday (and my sisters birthday), I'm showing a floral card today.

I have combinedthe floral motif from You are forever beautiful with one of the Congrats from the May 2019 sentiment kit - Say it big. I stamped the images with VersaFine Onyx ink on Fabriano Hotpressed water color cardstock and coloured with Dylusions inks (water brushes filled with coloured ink). The frame was made using nested Wonky rectangles from Gina Marie Design, cutting out of Bazzill white cardstock.

I'm rather fond of keeping it clean and simple and want the beautiful floral to shine on its own.
