Summer Inspiration

Hello from Norway.
I live in the the north part of Norway, the calender show summer, but yesterday we had snow, quite a bit as well. So I have to admit that I just isn`t really into that summer mood.
But in a couple of days I think we get more summerish weather..... perhaps :-)

Well at Copic Marker Norway we have a summer challenge and I made this card.
Using one of the downloads from the store here.

I used papers from Prima, and some of the  flowers are from Prima too.
Hope you have summer where you are.

Wish you all a great summer!

Card For Dad

It's Father's Day on Sunday! Did you forget? Bet your dh wouldn't LET you forget! :-) Tis the day to pamper all those lovely dad's out there. If you haven't made a card yet, take a look at this very easy tomake card from our DT member Caroline Scattergood. Caroline used Basic Grey Highline to make this fabulous card, which is super for many occasions:


Caroline says:

Monochrome black and white cards look fab when put together with a pop of colour.  I struggle with a more masculine card but this type of colour scheme works really well, and the Basic Grey Highline  has black and white amongst the colour scheme so I was able to do this card, as well as more feminine ones, with just the one set of papers.

I layered up the two yellow papers in the pack and sewed them together.

The stars were cut using a die cut and then were all edged with black ink.  The white stars were covered with a little bit of Stickles-Crystal.  I love a bit of glitter!  I then placed the stars onto the card to create a banner effect and sewed them into place leaving long thread ends either side of the banner.

I then popped two smaller stars in the two top corners.

I then added some buttons, and used a rub-on for the ‘dad’ wording.

I love this colour combination and with the Basic Grey Highline set you can have it all – Pastels, Brights and Black and White.  Couldn’t ask for more from paper really!

Pre Coloured Charmed Digis

Hi there fellow crafters and friends, have you missed me? It's been a heck of a long time hasn't it? I'll be honest with you, life just got really hard over the past month and I have decided to distract myself from it all by immersing myself in creativity - it beats alcohol!
On Saturday I bought myself a much needed printer so I could start to use my digi downloads again so yesterday I tested it out......I wanted to know what the colour print would be like so I browsed through my pre coloured digis from Charmed Cards and Crafts and found one of my old favourites from the pixie collection. You won't believe this but the card I am about to show you took me about 15 minutes yesterday! Take a look...
The Marianne Die and the beautiful picture make it look like it took hours don't they! Honestly I think I am going to print out the pre coloured digis more often!
I will be back with more because I just found some stuff in my camera which I never shared with you!
Bye for now xxxxx
