This is a card I made for Elzybell's fortnightly challenge and this one asked that you made your own designer paper. Well, I am still in the mood for christmas card (wonder how long it'll last). The corners of the card has been stamped and heat-embossed. I then stamped some swirls onto grey paper in black and red. The parcels are covered in gold glitter glue.
Stamps: "Eskimo gifts" from Elzybells - the swirls are from Crafty Individuals
Paper: Paper Mill Shop
Inks: Versa Magic "Dew drops"
Charm: Bunny Zoe's
Colouring: Prisma pencils + blender
Thank you for swinging past my little cloud and have a lovely day, Mette

Anyways, I wanted to share this card with you. I made it for the Kraftin' Kimmie challenge which was "No embellishment". Did I just hear a "gasp" - well, it's actually not that hard as the Designer Paper itself can work as embellishment. Again I have done a christmas team and used this super image. I have used Rangers ink to give the edges a little colour.
Stamp: Antoinette by Kraftin' Kimmie
DP: DCWV "Christmas Wishes"
Colouring: Prisma + blender

Well, I have finally managed to find the right paper to print on together with a fast printing (uses less ink), so no more bleeding. I would like to thank Mina for her wonderful advise and putting up with my desperate e-mails. Now I am on full speed ahead with digi images. They are so much easier to store and are instantly available.
This card is for the challenge over at Mo's ....................... oops, Bella and Bronte's place. This week the challenge is BIRTHDAY and we all need cards for that. I love Mo's images - she somehow manages to capture so much personality in her drawings. Hope you like this little girl.
Digi Image: "Sophie" by Mo Manning
Papers: Sandylion "Baby Boy Stripes and Dots" + stash
Pearls: from Bunny Zoe's
Thank you for visiting my little heaven and wish you a peaceful Sunday, Mette

This card is another first for me. I found these lovely digi stamps from Pollycraft Design and they are just lovely. As they also have a challenge blog I decided to play along. This week's theme is Winter birthday and I used one of the Winter Gingers. The image is a little fuzzy as I am still scanning my cards (sometimes tricky when attaching a lot of embellishments), I hope to get a new camera soon'ish.
Image: Ginger Tea by Pollycraft Designs
Papers: Doodlebug "Neapolitan stripes", from stash and hand stamped swirls
Brad and ribbon from stash
Colouring: Prisma pencils + mixer
Thank you for visiting my little heaven and hope you have a lovely day, Mette

It's a little difficult when all the kids are here to get any crafting done cos they command a lot of my time hehe. But I was hoping that monday I would be back to normal as they would be back at school and playgroup - but oh no, we had snow. A lot of snow and frost and ice. I am so happy I managed to get a fire in this winter. The living room is toasting :)).
Anyway, I have managed to make a few cards and this first one is for Kort-o-Mania's challenge "vintage". Now I don't normally do vintage (just take a look backwards) but I am rather pleased how this turned out.
Paper: received from a lovely friend, music sheet is distressed with Ranger "vintage photo"
Tag: local office supplies
Lace, Bow and button: from stash
This next card is for Kraftin' Kimmie challenge and they asked that you use Paper Piecing. I got this super stamp from my boys (I adore these - my absolute favorites for 2009).
Stamp: Lola Da Vinci from Kraftin' Kimmie
Flowers: Bought at Bunny Zoe's
