SOUS - May 27th

Time for another challenge at Stuck On U Sketches, and for the second time this month we have a beautiful sketch by our own Ness Waller:

My DD will turn five this september, but here she is hardly a month old, together with her grandmother, my mother. Title means "proud grandma". Konstanse was her first grandchild, and she was very proud :)

Papes I have used are from MME and Imaginisce (both are backsides if I remember it correctly). I have also used a small paper doily in the background.

On this layout I have been inspired by my teammate Leah and have used embossing a lot, both dry embossing and heat embossing. Have not used my heat gun in years, but right now I am loving it and need to buy more embossing powder. The bird stamp from Inque Boutique are heat embossed with a dark red powder, so is the swirl from the same collection from Inque Boutique.

In the background you can see that I have used my Cuttlebug and the swiss dot folder, and afterwards inked it with distress inks.

Title are brown felt letters. 

Have also used a small felt frame around the text here that is a rub on.

Not much more to tell you about this. Hope you will join in on our challenge. Remember, there is a prize up this month. Also hope you have checked out my tutorial last week - coloring with ditress ink.

Noken konfirmasjonskort

Har laga litt konfirmasjonskort dei siste vekene.

Først et lilla kort med stempel fra Magnolia og papirer fra Fancy Pants og 7 gypsies. Har også brukt ei gammel bokside, en liten kakeserviett og en del halvperler. Alle paneler er rufsa med kantskrape fra Tim Holz og sydd fast med symaskin. Stempeltrykk er fargelagt med distress ink.

Dei to neste korta har begge stempel fra Whiff of Joy og papirer fra Maja Design. Også her er alle panel sydd på med symaskin. Har brukt et par die cuts fra Cricut Indy Art (fugl og sommerfugl). Blomster er fra Prima og fra papirloftet

Tekstempel på alle tre korta er fra Papirdesign si konfirmasjonsplate.

Gratulerer med vel overstått nasjonaldag!

Det har vore en lang og begivenhetsrik dag for både små og store, med barnehagetog, tivoli, leikar , kaker is og brus i barnehagen og seinere borgertog. Værgudane slo til med sol og varme på formiddagen, og regndråpane på ettermiddagen var så spredd at dei regner vi ikkje med :)

Her er et lite bile av våre to små festpynta og klare for dagen i dag tidleg. Dei var ikkje like reine og fine då dagen var omme... Håper alle ha hatt ein fin 17. mai :)

SOUS May 13th - Love is in the air

This post is a little late, I know, but as Blogger did not work thursday evening and most of friday this was my first chance to do this. 

This week we have a fabulous sketch by our own Vanessa (Ness).  She makes amazing sketches with lots of detail and have made both of our May sketches for us! Ness and her store, Scrap with V has also donated a great prize for our participants in May. 
You can see all about in on the SOUS-blog
I do not have many pictures to show you I am afraid. Seems like I have been a bit too lazy picturewise this week, but here it is:
Another picture from our honeymoon - chilling in the park in front of the Eiffel tower. Have used bazill cardstock as a base (I always do by the way...) and some blue and green patterned paper from MME (Bohemia? I inherited these from a friend so not quite sure). The title is stickers from my drawer of misc. stuff. Have also used part of a paper doily as frame for the journaling (leftovers from my last LO), a heart punch from EK Success and some prima flowers. 
Nothing more to say tonight. Will enjoy my glass of wine and Nicolas Cage on TV.
Hope you will enjoy our challenge at Stuck on U Sketches!
