DT Anonyme Scrappere

Good morning bloggers and friends.

It's time for a new challenge over at Anonyme Scrappere.
Stop by the blog to find out what our challenge is this time, and be inspired by my talented DT- collegues.

Det er tid for en ny utfordring hos Anonyme Scrappere.
Ta en tur innom bloggen for å se hva dagens oppgave er og la deg inspirere av de lekre kreasjoene til resten av DT. Vi har også noen gode nyheter denne gangen!

I made a basket for this challenge, very much inspired from the very talented Randi. She has a tutorial on her blog HERE.

Jeg har laget en gaveboks, inspirert av denne dyktige damen: Randis lille blogg.
Du finner hennes tutorial på denne boksen HER.

Kurven er laget med Pion Design ark, Almas Sewing Room, rosene er fra WOC og den hvite gardenia-blomsten er Mulberry paperflowers fra Live & Love craft store, Jeg har også brukt spellbinder dies, og magnolia doohickey dies (hanken) Tilda Lace. "glasset" i åpningen er gelatinplater. Sløyfen og blonden er fra skuffen min. 

I used Pion design papers, some WOC roses and the big Gardenias are from the Live & Love craft store. I used spellbinder dies, and Magnolia doohickey's Tilda Lace die . The brads are the vintage pearl brads, also from the Live & Love craft store. The pearls ribbon and lace are from my stash.

Jeg måtte selvsagt ha med meg et Magnolia stempel. Her har jeg brukt en av de mange mini'ene mine, denne heter Tilda with many hearts. Alle kantene er svertet med Distress ink- walnut stain. Stempelet er fargelagt med copics.

I had to add a Magnolia image to my project, as always, so I inked up one of my mini Magnolias, Tilda with many hearts, using Copic Markers. I used the E70's for the hair and shoes, RV90's for the dress and hearts, for the skin I used my usual combo: E13-11-00-000.

Her er innsiden av kurven. Jeg har dekorert med Almas Sewing Room fra Pion her også.
Here is what the basket looks like on the inside. This paper is also from the Alma's Sewing Room collection by Pion Design.

I would like to enter the following challenges: 
Simply Magnolia: Anything goes
Marvelous Magnolia: #15 Floral bonanza

Thank you for stopping by my blog today!
Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday!!!

Skynd deg over til Anonyme Scrappere for å se oppgaven. 
Gleder meg til å se hva du lager!

Takk for at du stakk innom bloggen min i dag, ønsker deg en kreativ uke!

♥For my valentine♥

Hi peeps!
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend! I've been inking up one of my cute La La Land digis today, and I made another Valentine card. I think it's too cute and pinkish for my dear hubby, it's probably better suited for my little girl...lol.

Edit: The talented Marianne has made a tutorial for this card, you can find it right HERE!

I used a folding technique I got from Mariannes tutorial in the February issue of Ett Trykk Magazine. I was very much inspired by the Maja Design Mood board, so I thought I would enter this month. I used Maja Design Crea Diem and Shall We Have coffee papers. The dies are Magnolia doohickey's and spellbinders, and I used WOC and Kort og Godt flowers. The pearls are Papirdesign and the I love you charm was a gift.The sentiment (translates to something like: love is like a circle- it never ends) is from Kreativ Hobby. The shabby seam binding is from the Live & Love Craft store.

The stamp is a La La land crafts digi, this one is the Cupid Marci.
I colored it with Copic Markers. Copics used: Skin: E13-11-00-000, R32-30, Hair: E44-43-42-41-40, Wings: C5-3-1-00, Clothes: W7-5-3-1-00, Roses and heart: R89-85-83-81, Leafs: Yg95-93-91

The card has two tags, one with the Image, and one for writing a personal message. The heart stamp is by Stempelglede.

Finally a closeup of the charm, because it's so cute♥

I would like to enter the following challenges with this card:

Copic Marker Norge: #32 Valentine/hjerter 
Maja Design: February Mood board
Inky Chicks: #3 Valentines/ anniversary
The Cutiepie Challenge: #37 Valentines Cards
Wishing you all a wonderful, crafty weekend
and lots of love on valentines day and every day!

Love is in the air...

Hello dear friends and followers.
Today I want to show you a couple of cards I made by special order for The Paper Nest.
She made these cute stamps (digis)and asked med to make two cards with them. A proposal and a wedding card. Great timing as we are approaching Valentines day...

 I used soft creeme papers from Pion Design and maja Design. The die cut heart is a Magnolia Doohicky. The roses are WOC, the rolled flower is from kort og godt. The pearl pin and heart pin are both from Maya road, and the love charm and the gorgeous  Bark heart is from the Live & Love Craft Store.

I made a Wedding invitiation with the proposal stamp...
I chose to color it to look like black and white. Copics used: W7-5-3-1-00. I used the W's to keep it soft and warm to go with the papers and romantic red. 
 The inside is decorated with the lovely papers, a spellbinder diecut and the swirls are Stempelglede stamps.

Now on to the wedding. Unfortenantly the pictures are not as good, but you can see the cute couple and get an idea of the card.

I used my Martha Stewart punch, lots of flowers form WOC and Kort og Godt, the lace is from Kort og Godt too. The charms and peral hearts are from my stach. I also used a pearl string form Kort og Godt, Melissa Frances pearls and some cute hearts made of pearls. I used my sewing machine around the dp's and distressed all the edges with Vintage photo distress ink.

 Here's the lovely couple. The stamp is a digi made by The Paper Nest. I used my N's this time, because I wanted a more neutral tone to the white and black.
So, Copics used: Skin: E13-11-00-000-0000, Hair: E44-43-42-41-40, Black and whites: N9-7-5-3-1-00, Reds: R59-35-32-30. I added some stickle on her tiara to make it sparkle.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
Please check back tomorrow for my first attemt at inking up a Make it Crafty image...lol...
Have a great evening or day- wherever you are in the world!
Lots of crafty hugs,

Anonyme Timeglass del 2

This project is for a Norwegian challengeblog so I will be posting in Norwegian today! I made a set with a get well soon giftbag and a kleenex holder. I found a tutoraial for the kleenex holder here:Mariannes Papirverden ! 
The images are Saturated Canary's and I colored them with my Copic Markers. 
Thanks for stopping by my blog♥

Det er tid for en ny oppgave i  Anonyme Timeglass hos oss i Anonyme Scrappere!
Ta en titt i bloggen for å få masse inspirasjon og selvsagt....neste oppgave! Selv om du ikke har meldt deg på så burde du stikke innom for å ta en titt på alle de flotte inspirasjonsbidragene fra designteamet!

Jeg har laget en liten gavepose og en kleenex eske. Tutorial for kleenex esken fant jeg hos denne dyktige dama: Mariannes Papirverden.

Jeg har brukt Marthe Stewart puncher, kort og godt blomster, WOC blomster, Tim Holtz Grungeboard som jeg har malt med hvit acryl maling, perler fra prima og kort og godt, bling fra Magnolia samt glitterlim (stickles). Poststemplene er også fra kort og godt. Blondene med bling er fra Live & Love craft store.

Her er gaveposen. Den er dekorert med mønsterark foran og bak. Lukkemekanismen er rett og slett lit borrelås fra sysakene mine.

Utrolig fine disse stemplene altså! De er digis fra Saturated Canary! Hadde det veldig moro med å fargelegge dem med Copics Tusjer! Har brukt  E 77-74-71-70 og W5 og 7 til håret. Ble ganske fint om jeg skal si det selv! Ellers har jeg brukt: Hud: E13-11-0000, W1og 3, RV95-93-91-V0000, W3-1, Greys: C5-3-1-00.

Her er fronten på Kleenex esken. Jeg har brukt en QK dies til å lage "hull" til å få tak i kleenexen med. Av Copics har jeg brukt:  Hår: E77-74-71-70 og W5 og 7, Hud: E13-11-0000, W1og 3, Hvitt/Grått: C5-3-1-00, Brunt: E77-74-71-70, W5 og 7, Blått: B29-26-23-21, W7-5.

Slik ser den ut fra siden. Jeg har brukt de samme arkene på begge to slik at det skal matche hverandre selv om fargene på stempeltrykkene er litt ulike toner. Perlenswirl fer ra Prima, roser fra WOC, Grungeboard- blomst med hvit maling og bling fra Magnolia. Stickles på blomstene. Swirl- stemplet rundt motivet er fra stempelglede.

I would like to enter the 
Copic Marker Europe Challenge: Anything goes

Ha en fin lørdag, og lykke til med timeglass- oppgavene !
