Feeling Distressed @ I ❤️ ProMarkers


Hi Everyone. I’m so sorry I’m late with my DT-entry for
I ❤️ ProMarkers
I thought I had planned this posting, but unfortunately I hadn’t pushed the «Publish» button.
But here it is.

This weeks challenge over at
I ❤️ ProMarkers
has the theme
«Feeling Distressed»
Just remember to use ProMarkers, FlexMarkers, TriaMarkers orAquaMarkers on your project, apart from that you’re free to interpret the challenge theme the way you like.

Sponsor this week is
La Pashe


I have made a christmascard for this challenge.
As you can see, I’ve done a lot of distressing, tearing, ripping and inking, to give the card an aged, vintage look.
The cardbase is made of Bazzill Kraft Cardstock. DPs are from MajaDesign, Vintage Frost basics. Here’s also some pieces of corrugated paper.
I made the tag behind the image wth a Magnolia DooHickey die. I also used Martha Stewarts Aspen Snowflake borderpunch on the card.
To decorate it I put on some cheesecloth, a couple of laces, two «swirlthings», a rolled flower and some halfpearls.
The stamped greeting on the banner beneath the image is from Ladybug and Friends.
Inside the card I used stamped texts from Kort & Godt and Norsk Stempelblad AS.

Folded out once:

Fully folded out, inside…:

Sweet Treats @ I ❤️ ProMarkers

Hello and god morning
It’s a windy, rainy day at Røst, a real autumn day - and having the day off from work, I’ll make it a perfect day. Baking, scrapping  - and a little homework when the kids come home from school…

My share today is the DT-card for the new challenge over at
this weeks challenge has the theme
Sweet Treats
I hope you’ll join us
-I love to visit blogs to see how other interpret the theme.

For this challenge we have 2 sponsors:

Bunny Zoe’s Crafts 

To see the prizes they offer, you’ll have to visit the

I’m sure you’ll get lots of inspiration seeing the projects the rest of the DT girls have made.

I have tried to make a card with all the sweet things I could find; a cupcake-cutie from Sherri Baldy, cute cupcakepaper from Papirdesign, the cupcakeprinted ribbon I’ve had for a long, long time and the  cupcakeborder punch I’ve had for almost as long as the ribbon…
I’ve also used some cheesecloth, little rhinestones, Frantage Shabby White and dies from Spellbinders, Marianne design and Kaboks (the text on the inside).
The image is coloured with ProMarkers.

Little magnets hidden underneath the papers hold the fold closed. Here it’s opened:

Use a Doily, Lace or Ribbon @ My Besties International


Hi again
Today I’m here to show you my DT-project for the new challenge at
My Besties International

The challenge starting today has the theme

-and of course there are great prizes

September already, maybe time to make a little start on the christmasprojects, and with this cute image I just knew I had to make a christmascard.
The image is Fancy Pants Snow Pretty Snowgirl 2, from Sherri Baldy.

You can find all of her images in her shops
Sherri’s Etsy Store
Scrapbook Stamp Society
My Besties Store

This time I made a criss cross card, though not much of the criss cross is showing…
I used both a doily, laces and a ribbon on my card - you don’t have to use all three embellishments, one is enough…
I used papers from Papirdesign.
The little flower«thing» attached behind the bow is from an old candledecoration («waste not, want not») that have been laying around for years. I had to put on some glittered snowflakes, and then some sparkling blingstones - that’s pretty much it…
Here it is:



The stamped greeting is from Kort & Godt

The greeting on the back is made with a die from Kaboks

Bruk Glitter/ Let’s Sparkle @ My Besties Norge


Good Morning To You All.
Finally, it’s time for a new challenge over at
My Besties Norge

We’re now back with the regular fortnightly challenges again, after the summer.
This challenge has got the theme
Bruk Glitter/ Let’s Sparkle

I hope you’ll find the time and inspiration to join us for this one - Glitter is FUN!

You can find all of Sherris lovely images in her shops:
Sherri’s Etsy Store
Scrapbook Stamp Society
My Besties Store

I have decorated a giftbox. The box itself is one that «the man in the house» received some of his beloved technical devices in (I really can’t understand what he needs all his gadgets and things for, but I always checks if the boxes they arrive in can be useful for me and my things…).
Giftboxes in various sizes are always handy.

Backside of the giftbox

To close the box I simply attached a ribbon around it, simply fastened underneath the panels.
Between the glittered flowers I put a few pearlstrings
-and then with a few bligstones, the box is finished…

The image is coloured with Pro- and FlexMarkers.
Around the image I used both Frantage and Glitterstickles.

I’ll join these challenges:
That Craft Place - Summery Colours
Scribble and Scrap #26 - Always Anything Goes
Totally Gorjuss #251 - Pearls
A Gem of a Challenge #127 - It’s SUMMER Time..
Card and Scrap #81 - Alt er tilladt

Here’s my DT project for this challenge.
My backing paper is made of old newspapers. Torn into small pieces, thoroughly wet, then put into «frames» with a few dried flowers, flattened and dried. I prefer making papers outside, as this is a really messy work…
I also used an embossed piece of paper on the book mark (Cuttlebug D’vine Swirls embossingfolder) - for that’s what it is; a bookmark.
The image is coloured with ProMarkers, for the glasses I used Glossy Accents.
Around the image I put on a little Frantage Aged Copper

Backside of the bookmark:

Inside of it I put on two magnets, to hold the bookmark in place inside the book
