Anything Goes @ I ❤️ ProMarkers



Our sponsor for this challenge is
With a fabulous prize of a set of promarkers

The theme for this weeks challenge is
Anything Goes
How you interpret this challenge is entirely up to you, but please remember you MUST use either ProMarkers, FlexMarkers, TriaMarkers, AquaMarkers or the newer NeonMarkers and of course follow the theme to be entered into the prize draw, if you don't your entry will not be eligible for the prize draw.

To inspire you to join us I made a confirmation card, this one for a boy.
DPs on this card is from Papirdesign. The dies "Konfirmanten" is from Scrapmagasinet, behind it I put some corrugated paper with a little jute twine wrapped around. I believe the image is from Mo Manning. Of course it's coloured with ProMarkers.
I found this type of cardfolding in the norwegian magazine Ett Trykk.


Inside the card there's a little pocket with place for a little card, some money or a giftcard:

Konfirmasjonskort med blomster


Hei alle sammen.
I dag blogger jeg for Storyteller, med et lite konfirmasjonskort jeg har laget.
Hvis du ikke allerede har deltatt i Storytellers utfordring "Bruk Blomster", har du fortsatt noen dager igjen.
Kortet er til en jentekonfirmant, så jeg har prøvd å gjøre det så feminint som mulig.
Her er både blomster og blonder, doily og perler. Heldigvis er Storyteller en av de produsentene som har små kors-charms, som jeg synes passer så godt på konfirmasjonskort.
Lenger ned i innlegget finner du en liste over hvilke av Storytellers materialer jeg har brukt.
Inspirasjon til kortfoldingen fant jeg i bladet Ett Trykk, i en artikkel om kort med pengelommer.

Good morning to you all.
My blogpost today is for Storyteller.
There's still a few days left to enter the challenge "Bruk Blomster"(Use Flowers)
I have made a girly, little confirmation card. To make it as feminine and girly as possible I've used flowers, laces, a doily and pearls - lots of pearls...
Storyteller has tiny, little cross-charms that I really like to use on my confirmation cards.
Further down in the post you'll find a list of products from Storyteller that I've used on the card.
I found this folding technique in the norwegian magazine Ett Trykk.

Her kommer bilder av kortet, fra alle sider:

Bruk Stempel/ Use stamps @ Storyteller


Good Morning.
It's time for a new Storyteller challenge again. The theme for this challenge is to Use Stamps.
Remeber that at least one of the products on your project has to be from Storyteller.
If you are unsure if some of the products you have are from Storyteller, just take a look here.


Here's my project, to inspire you to join the challenge.
Stamps do not only have to be used on papers or cards.
I have stamped Santas head on white shrinkplastik and made a pair of earrings.
The earrings are used as decor on a gift-tag, to make a little extra gift on a christmas present (I like making a little extra out of the giftwrapping...)
Here's what I used making the tag and earrings:
DPs: Authentique
Tag: Storyteller (ST-009445)
Stamps, image + text: Storyteller ( images from ST-009858, ST003030, text from a retired set)
Ribbon: Storyteller (ST-007328)
Ink: StazOn and DistressInk WalnutStain
White Shrinkplastik

And here's the tag:

close-up of the earrings:

Back of the tag, the "To-From"-panel is fastened with a red little brad, and holds the earrings in place...

to loosen the earrings you'll just turn the panel a little:

Your Favourite Song @ I ❤️ ProMarkers


Good Morning to you all.
I'm here today to show you my DT-entry and to invite you to the new challenge over at
I ❤️ ProMarkers

Sponsor for this weeks challenge is
Live And Love Crafts

The Prize is a £10 Gift Certificate


This weeks theme is
Your Favourite Song

First of all I must apologize for few and bad pictures this week.
My computer broke down the other day, and when I decided to throw it out of the craftroom I got a little carried away. So now I'm practically rearranging my whole craftroom. The whole room is in a mess, and the place where I usually does all my photographing - well, I couldn't find it...
Please bare over with me for a little while. I hope that I'll get thing back in order by the weekend, 'cause I really can't stand all the mess in there!

Well, back to the challenge;
I really can't say I have an over all favourite song, but amongst all the songs I like is the norwegian christmas song Vi tenner våre lykter.
I even like it so much I've bought a stamp with the text from the song some years ago.
With this text I think this little Magnolia image is just perfect.
I also used DPs from Magnolia on this card.
To decorate it I put on: Laces, Flowers, Swirls, pearlstrings, Seambindingribbon, a charm and lots of white halfpearls. I also used several dies to cut out decorations. All over this I dripped and rubbed on white Gesso.
Here's the card:

Marvelous Magnolia #88 - BOWnanza
Magnolia Forever #6 - Add a Charm
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra - Anything Goes as long as it's Christmas
