I’m here to show my newest card, and hopefully inspire you to join this weeks challenge over at
I ❤️ ProMarkers

This weeks challenge has the theme
Men At Work

and our sponsor for this challenge is
And their prize is Prize is a $15 voucher.

As I work with a lot of firemen I had to make a firemans card for this challenge, and isn’t the image Adorable Fireman just that; Adorable?
The DPs have been laying around for years - at least 6 - 8 years! - so I guess it’s about time I used them. 
The decoration is quite simple on my card, i simply tied on a ribbonbow and let the ends curl down in rather long ends just to make an illusion of the fire hose. To the bow I attached a charm with a birthdaygreeting.
Around the image I sprinkled on a little Frantage Shabby Blue and Shabby White. The waterdrops running from the fire hose are glittered with Glitterstickles Baby Blue.
The stamped greeting inside the card is from Papirdesign.

New Beginnings @ I ❤️ ProMarkers


This weeks theme is
New Beginnings 

This challenge is sponsored by
Eureka! Stamps

I have used Baby Balloon for my card. A list of colours I used is further down in the post.
I used a dies from Spellbinders to cut out the image. On the edges I put on some Shabby Blue Frantage,
DPs are from My Minds Eye and DCWV. I used Bazzills Kraft Cardstock for the base and backing panels.  Both paper- and cardstockedges are inked with DistressInk WalnutStain.
The cardfront is built up in layers, 9 (!) layers actually, so the card is quite heavy.
T decorate it I only used a little piece of blue seambindingribbon and a circleshaped textstamp from Kort & Godt.



Inside the card: Bazzill light blue and Kraft cardstock. On the light blue cardstock I used a corner punch from Martha Stewart. On the heartshaped diecut (I do not know which brand this die is…), I used one of the first textstamps I bought when I started to make cards… 


Pro- and TriaMarkers used to colour the image:
Skin: Ivory, Dusky Pink, Tan, Blush, Sunkissed Pink
Diaper («balloon»): Powder Blue, Blender
Safety Pins and Baby rattle: C917
Rattle handle: Sandstone

Winter @ My Besties Norge

Good Morning, and Happy New Year
to all friends, followers and other crafters out there
I have started this year trying to get my workspace a little more organized, but, oh, it will be a lot of job sorting all those little things. What gives me kind of a headache now is the charms, ribbons and laces… I really need to find a system for them!
-And all my papers! I SO need one of those paper racks where I can both store and see what I have.
Well - Pinterest is a fantastic place to find great storing solutions, so I’m sure I’ll find something that will work for my room.

My first post for 2015 is to show you my DT-entry for the new challenge over at
My Besties Norge

The challenge has the theme
Winter
(But Christmas is also accepted)

For this challenge I made an advent candlestick - you know one where we light one more candle for each Sunday during the advent. It’s made of a matchbox, and has a perfect handbag size :)
The matchbox is decorated with DP from Papirdesign. 
I’ve used the image Snow Pretty Snow man Winter by Sherri Baldy
You can find all of her images in her stores
Sherri’s Etsy Store
Scrapbook Stamp Society
My Besties Store
Underneathe the image I tucked a little cheesecloth, and tied a seambindingribbon into a bow below the image. Onto the bow I attached two little silverbells.
I also put on several, «randomly placed» punched snowflakes and blingstones.

I divided the inside of the matchbox into two rooms; one for the matches and one for the 4 candles:

The candles (and candleholders) are the ones you buy for cakes:

Christmas Plus Music @ My Besties International


Good Morning all visitors, and welcome to my blog.
I’m here to show you my DT-entry for the brand new challenge over at
My Besties International
the theme for this one is
Christmas plus Music
So join us and show us your christmas music cards and creations.
Just remember to use one of Sherri Baldys images, and join in.
You can find all of her images in her stores
Sherri’s Etsy Store
Scrapbook Stamp Society
My Besties Store


And of course there’s prizes for both the winner and the Top 3

This is my Christmas plus Music card.
The music on the card is made with stamps and dies.
DPs are from Authentique. I think this papercollection works so great with Bazzills Kraft cardstock, so I had to make the «Winter Wonderland» out of it, using several snowflake dies and Glitterstickles (Frosted Lace).
Underneath the image I put some cheesecloth and a piece of lace.
The poinsettiaflowers in the corner of the image have got a touch of DistressInk WalnutStain (as have all paperedges), before I glittered them.

The card folded out:
