SOUS die cut challenge -Snowman

Happy friday everyone. This will be a very short post. Just wanted to show you the card I have made for the die cut challenge at Stuck On U Sketches this week, where the challenge is  SNOWMAN.

I have used the snowman from the Gypsy wanderings cart. I shadowed him and gave him his accessories, including blue pearl buttons, and placed him on a patterned paper from Chatterbox. Love the clean, simple and fast card - my first Christmas card of 2012 (made in less than an hour - that is a new record for me...). Hope you take time to visit the SOUS-blog and the other girls.

TOMIC #33 - a sketch and fabric

Tenk et blogginnlegg på en annen dag enn fredag :)
Har laga et kort til denne vekas utfordring hos The Official Magnolia Inspiration Challenge der en skulle ta utgangspunkt i ei skisse og også ha stoff på kortet. Fikk testa en av mine nyanskaffelser. Den skjønne Tildaen her:

Har brukt mønsterark fra Papirdesign - Liljer, en merkrlapp fra ei bukse eg kjøpte en gang, blonde kjøpt hos TreL og diverse blomster og perler. 

Takk for at du titter innom :)

SOUS sketch challenge january 20th

It seems like all I manage to post on my blog these days are the weekly challenges at Stuck On U Sketches. I cannot believe how time flies, and that is friday again already! But friday is good, and this week Nannè has created another great sketch for us. Hope you will find time to stop by Stuck On U Sketches to join us for the last sketch of January. We still have a great prize for our participants in January and this week we are also so lucky to have Debbie Burns of Love life's little pleasures back with us as a guest designer. She makes amazing layouts. Please stop by her blog to see for yourself.

Here is my take on the sketch. I made a card again. I have no pictures ready these days. My printer and I are not friends, so I might need to order some prints, but have obviously not done that yet...
My card is for a friends new baby, who I finally will get to see in a few weeks time.

I made an easel card and got to use a lot of scraps for my patterned paper. This sketch is really great for that. I wanted circles instead of squares, so used my punch for that (1 3/4 circles it is). Patterned papers are from Inkido and Papirdesign. On the circles with the rose pattern I have used crackle accents. Love how that turned out. It did not photograph well, but you can get a closer look on the next picture.

The gorgeous leaves are a Magnolia Doo Hickey (die cut) that I just got. 
I just love them, and plan to use them a lot! 

Here is a closer picture of the front side of the card.

Hope to see you participate in our challenges.
Hugs Stine!

SOUS January 13th - Winter fun - a winter birthday card

It is Friday the 13th - I hope you are all OK ;)
This week we have a new die cut challenge for you at Stuck On U Sketches, and the challenge is 
It has to be a new project, and you need to use your die cut machine and follow the theme - other than that you are free to make anything you like :)
I chose to make a winter birthday card for my sister in law.

I have used one of my Magnolia stamps, some patterned paper from Papirdesign and Magnolia, the rabbit and the snowflakes are from the cricut cart Gypsy wanderings and the swirly cut is from Cindy Loo. Other embellishments are lots of pearls from Papirdesign and a piece of lace from my stash. I also used my Dymo for the greeting :)

Join us at Stuck On U Sketches in the month of January and you will also have a chance to win a price. Stephanie from Whimsical design has been kind to give away four of her stamp sets as a price for one of our participants in January. How great is that!! 

Hope to see you at SOUS!!

SOUS January 6th -Sketch by Nanné - "Father and son"

We have started 2012 with chickenpox (both kids), so not much of the creative part so far, but I will catch up as soon as the pox are gone!

On the first friday of 2012 it is time for the first sketch challenge of 2012 over at Stuck On U Sketches.
This week we have a great sketch by Nanné Harrry for you.

I am quite happy with my first layout this year. I love this pictur of my husband with the newborn Peter, and I love how this turned out!

Papers are from Fabscraps (the dotted one) and Papirdesign (the damask one). I have also used some stamps from pink paislee (bird cage, butterfly, clock-border). The tag with text and the butterfly are cut from another patterned paper from Papirdesign. For my title I have used the font on the Cindy Loo cartridge (did I mention yet that I got an expression for Christmas?)

Flowers are from Prima, and I have used a lot of pearls and a bling swirl from Papirdesign.

Hope you will find time to enjoy our sketch :)
