DT Copic Marker Norge: Konfirmasjon

God morgen! 
Det er tid for en ny utfordring hos Copic Marker Norge
Vi vil se konfirmasjonskort denne gangen. 
Ta en tur over til CMN bloggen og se de flotte bidragene fra resten av designteamet. 

Good morning peeps,
It's time for a new challenge over at Copic Marker Norge. So get your Copics out and join in! 
I found this fancy fold over at the talented Mariannes blog and tried my best to figure out how to make one...lol.

Jeg kikket rundt i bloggen til Marianne her om dagen og fant dette lekre brettekortet som jeg bare måtte prøve. 
Tenkte at dette stemplet passet perfekt til denne komfirmanten, så da ble det Saturated Canary igjen:

Papirene er fra Maja Designs vakre Vintage Spring Basic Collection. Jeg har brukt Martha Stewart Punch rundt kantene og jeg har skrevet ut tekst på PC'en. Blomstene er fra WOC. 
Papers are from Maja Design, vintage spring basic collection, I used a Martha Stewart Punch, flowers by WOC. I printet out the sentiment from my conputer. 

Motivet er festet på en tag som fungerer som lukkemekanisme på kortet. 
Motivet er fra Saturated Canary og er fargelagt i disse fargene:
Hud: E13-11-00-000, W3, Hår: E39-37-35--31-30, W7, Genser og rosa: RV95-93-91-V000, W5, Svart koffert: N9-7-5-3-1-0, Brun koffert: E77-74-71-70, Blått: B97-95-93-91, Skjørt og grått: W7-5-3-1-00, Skygge: W5-3-1-00

 Her ser du selve kortet. Jeg måtte streve litt for å få til den spesielle brettingen, men synes det ble fint til slutt.  Here's the card, it is made from a 12 x 12 cardstock, so it took me some figuring out to get the idea of how to make it....lol.

Inni kortet har jeg dekorert med de samme lekre papirene. Jeg har laget en remse midt i kortet til å feste penger bak.  I decorated the inside of the card with the beautiful papers. 

Hope you like it! Now pop over to the CMN blog to have a look at the beautiful creations of the rest of the DT and join in the challenge.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today, wishing you a creative day!

DT Ett Trykk: Vintage

Good morning peeps!

We are continuing our 50 editions celebration over at Ett Trykk Magazine. I'm hosting the challenge today, and we are taking you back to 2009 where we had an article on the Vintage style of cardmaking.
Vintage is still going strong in the cardmaking world, and, as you all know I am a big fan of this style.
Stop by Ett Trykk to join in our challenges this week. We have lot's more fun coming up this week!

Dagens utfordring er Vintage. 
Skynd deg over til bloggen for å delta i ukens utfordringer! 

Here is the card I made for today's challenge

I used a Pion Design papers, from the Alma's sewing room collection. The notepapers are from an old music book I got at a flea market. The sentiment is from Norsk Stempelblad AS. The currogated cardboard, the doily and ribbon are from my stash. The small butterflies are made from a small punch I have in my drawer. The flowers are WOC and the pearls are Papirdesign. I used some Picket fence crackle paint here and there, and I distressed the edges with walnut stain distress inks. The pretty tag is from Sagen Vintage Design. I used a Martha Stewart punch around the edges of the card. I used my sewing machine on the edges of the DP.

I used a cut out from K& company, the beautiful laces are from the Live & Love Craft store, so is the butterfly charm and the pearl brad. 

Hope you like it!

DT Ett Trykk:Tutorial- an easy way to color pleats with copics

Hi friends and crafty bloggers!

 Ett Trykk magazine is having a celebration this month! We are showcasing different techniques featured in the 50 editions since the magazine started. We are having new challenges every week using some of these techniques, so please stop by the Ett Trykk blog to have a look and join in our challenges. 

The technique I'm showcasing is coloring. So I made this little picture tutorial showing you how to color simple pleats on a dress with Copic Markers. I hope it's helpful! You will find the tutorial in Norwegian HERE
Du finner denne tutoiralen på Norsk HER!

I used 4 markers: RV95- RV93- RV91- V000
       1. Start with defining the pleats            2. Go over the dark color               3. Continue with RV91
           the darkest color RV95                        with the middle color RV93
                                                                        to blend out.

         4. Then V000 to fade the              5. Go back with RV95 again.           6. And RV93 again.
         colors. Always keep some
         white space in between.

        7. And RV 91.                                    8. And V000. Keep the white           9. I went over the dress 
                                                                     space.                                                with the 4 markers one
                                                                                                                               last time and colored                    
                                                                                                                                the rest of the image. 

That's it! I used my greys (W7-5-3-1-00) to define shadow under the dress to increase the sense of wavy fabric. 
I used these colors on the rest of the image: 
Skin: E12-11-00-000, R32-30, Hair and shoes: E44-43-42-41-40, W7, Shirt: W7-5-3-1-00, Dress, heart and headband: RV95-93-91-00.

Here's my finished card:

I used Pion Design Papers from the Alma's sewing room collection, ribbon from The Ribbon Girls, WOC flowers, pearl string from Kort og Godt, sentiment is from Norsk Stempelblad AS, doily and lace from my stash. I distressed the edges with walnut stain distress ink. The pearl brad is from the Live & Love craft store.

DT Ett Trykk- Paperbag card tutorial/ Papirposekort

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend!
I thought I would show you a paper bag card- tutorial I made for the february edition of  Ett Trykk Magazine. This is a simpel design to use if you are giving away some money, or some chocolate, teabags or whatever you like.

Her er en posekort beskrivelse som jeg laget til Ett Trykk i februar. Et enkelt design som passer fint hvis du skal gi penger i gave, eller kanskje en sjokolade eller teposer passer fint! 

Here's the card:
I used some older Maja Design papers called Marika 7. Pearls are by Melissa Frances, the flower are WOC, the tags, mini doily and branch dies are Magnolia- Doohickey's , The love hanger is by Maya Road, the berries  are Kort og Godt. The doily and lace are from my stash. I used a Martha Stewart punch and some beautiful shabby seam binding from the Live & Love craft store.

I colored the Magnolia image Summer flower Tilda with Distress Ink pads and marker. Colors used: skin:  tattered rose, Vintage Photo,  dress: scattered straw. Wings and flower: Victorian Velvet, Black sooth (shadows)

Magnolia stempelet er fargelagt med distress ink pads og markere. 
slik lagde jeg kortet:

Here's how I made it: 
1. What  you need: a paperbag, (mine was 27,2cm  x 13cm), card stock, design papers, punches and embellishments. 
 Du trenger en papipose i størrelse 27,2  x 13. Kartong og mønsterark i machende farger, utstanser, og pynt etter ønske.

2. Start by folding the paperbag. Keep the opening to the right and the bottom part of the bag to your left.
Begynn med å brette papirposen i to. "Flappen" som er undersiden av posen skal være vendt inn på venstre side- papirposens åpning på høyre side. 

3. Measured the card stock and desingpapers to fit all four sides of the paperbag: front, insides and backside. Punch the edges if you like.
 Kutt til kartong og mønstereark til alle fire sidene på posen, og en til undersiden av posen (det som skal bli lommetn). Jeg har valgt å stanse ut kanten på en side av mønsterpapiret.

4. Decorate a tag for a personal message to go in the opening of the bag. The tag should be long enough to show. A centimeter will do.
Lag en tag til å skrive en hilsen på. Lag en tag som er litt lengre enn kortsiden. Denne kan dyttes inn i papirposens åpning.

5. Glue the card stock and dp's to the paperbag. I distressed the edges with distress inks- Walnut stain.
Lim på kartong og mønsterark på alle 4 sider og på lommen. Du kan gjerne sverte kantene først hvis du ønsker det.

6. Add glue on the edges of the inside of the little pocket (the bottom of the paperbag) top and bottom. 
Lim langs den nederste og øverste kanten på "flappen" (det som var bunnen av papirposen) med limpistol eller lignende, slik at det blir en lomme inn hvor pengene kan plasseres.

7. Decorate the way you like it! 
Dekorer kortet etter eget ønske. 

Here's the inside of the card. Sentiment stamps are by Kreativ hobby.
Her er innsiden av kortet. Stemplene er fra kreativ hobby.

Hope you'll give it a try!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
And thank you so much for your lovely comments!!!

Remember to include a Magnolia stamp or item, and don't forget that we have a limit of 5 challenges total if you want a chance to win the surprise prize from Magnolia in Sweden!

I have been playing with my distress inks again, I love this Tilda with her tulips, so fun to color.
I used both sides of a sheet of Pion Design papers from the Almas' Sewing room collection. The flowers are from WOC and the doily, ribbon and charms are from my stash. I distressed the edges with walnut stain distress ink. Pretty simple stuff really- almost CAS... lol.

Tilda with big tulips is colored with distress ink pads and markers. 
I stamped the image with StazOn Timber brown ink on Canson  300grams watercolor paper.

I used the lovely papers to decorate the inside too.
Hope you like it!
