Time for tea!

Thank God it's Friday's challenge this week is all about skulls, so I made this slightly humorous, macabre card: Tea time!! The images is from Itkupilli and Lisas Altered Art. The spiderwebstamp is from Inkadinkado and the clockstamp from unknosn. By the way, if anyone knows of other really talented collagesheet-makers like these two, please give me a link to them! I hope you enjoyed my card and I wish you a great weekend!

TGIF's utfordring denne uken går på "skaller". Altså hodeskaller, uten hår og øyne osv. Skikkelig skummelt! Jeg lagde dette litt humoristiske, makabre kortet som kanskje passer best til Halloween. Motivene er fra Itkupilli og Lisas Altered Art. Spindelvevstemplet er fra Inkadinkado og klokkestemplet fra ukjent. Hvis du vet om andre flinke collageark-lagere så vær så snill å gi meg en link til dem. Ønsker deg en riktig god helg!

Meet my grandmother


Theme Thursday'sch beallenge this week is vintage women atc's. I have made the background from distressink, glitterspray, stamps etc. The image is my grandmother when she was young. Isn't she beautiful? She was a strong, wise and beutiful woman and I am so sad that she is no longer among us. I hope she is up there somewhere watching over us and seeing that I have a wonderful happy life with two children. I know that she wanted so much for me to be happy and get children. She loved the authumn whith its vibrant colors and she loved to paint. I quess this atc is rather "simple" but I chose to make it that way in order not to drown the image in to much elements, and let the colors of the background shine through.

Sketch maniac


This card is made from Sketch maniac's challenge this week. I might have streched the sketch too far, but with a good part of imagination you might see the sketch somewhere in my card. The image is from Itkupilli.
Dagens kort er laget fra sketsjen til Sketch maniac. Det er mulig jeg har strukket sketsjen en smule for langt, men med en viss porsjon innlevelse og fantasi kan man se den på kortet

ATC - old house



TMTA's challenge this week is architecture. Since I have not a singel stamp with a house on it, I fell for Itkupillis very old and drafty house. The boy is from Lisas Altered Art. The stamps used is a textstamp from Elsi and Making memories. The number "31" is also from Itkupilli and is covered with matt glossy accents.

TMTA's utfordring denne uken er arkitektur og siden jeg ikke eier et eneste stempel med en bygning på så gikk jeg løs på collagearkene mine, og her er resultatet.

Jeg har forresten presentert bloggen min på Bloggurat, hvis jeg får det til da...

Pink, pink, pink!!!!


I just love creating vintagecards. However, I have to now and then, make something completely different just to get a balance from all theSkriftstørrelse sugarsweet elements. While I was making this card I was playing with the thought on how much I can put on a card before it gets way too much. This card has more elements than what I usually put on a card, but still I think it came out ok.



The image is from : Itkupilli
Leaves from: Forever flowers, Mc Gill punch
Roses from: Wild Orchid crafts
Butterflies from: Marie Klip (Panduro)
Corners from: Cuttlebug die


I have had the greatest weekend. I went down to my summercottage with a friend and we took long walks in the woods, had late evenings with talk and creativity, long mornings and wonderful weather.

Jeg elsker å lage vintage kort, men må nå og da lage noe komplett annerledes bare for å få en balanse i livet. Mens jeg lagde dette lekte jeg med tanken på hvor mye jeg kunne pynte et kort før det ble for mye. Dette er jo mye mer pyntet enn jeg pleier å gjøre men jeg synes jo det ble ok for det.


Helgen ble tilbrakt på hytta ved sjøen med en veninnine. Vi gikk lange turer i skogen, plukket sopp, hadde lange kvelder med skravling og kreativitet, late morgener og et fantastisk vær!
