♪ Princess Leia's Theme ♫

 
Hører du også automatisk Star Wars musikk i bakgrunnen når du ser på denne siden? :) Jeg satt og nynnet for meg selv mens jeg malte dette nydelige fan-art motivet fra vår flotte sponsor, Oddball Art Stamps by Lizzy Love ♥  Mitt DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #136. Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, så velkommen skal du være!

Har planer om å bruke dette arket som en detalj på en større art journaling side, men har ikke helt klart for meg hvordan den skal bli enda ~ kansje en galakse og dødstjernen, og en silhouette av Darth Vader? Hmmm...

Do you also hear the sound of Star Wars in the background while looking at this page? :) I found myself contstantly humming on the music from the movies while painting this absolutely gorgeous Leia tribute image ♥ 



I actually have big plans for using this piece on a bigger art journaling page, perhaps with a galaxy background and the Death star, and maybe a silhouette of Darth Vader? Hmm.. I'll have to do some more thinking on that :) 

My Princess Leia page was made as DT inspiration for this fortnights challenge #136. at Creative Fingers. The fabulous digistamp motif come from our generous sponsor Oddball Art Stamps by Lizzy Love, and as always it is an 'Anything goes theme'. You are more than welcome to join with your creations ♥

Fairy Cookies & Tea

 
Det har ikke vært så mange bloggposter fra meg i sommer.. Slitt litt vel mye med helsa, så det har sjeldent vært tid for kreativitet på scrapperommet. Har isteden fått ryddet litt opp på pc'n, og det er sååå mye rot i mappene mine der! 
Fant faktisk flere kort som bare var tatt bilder av og ikke lagt ut på bloggen, og jeg legger for det meste ut alt jeg lager :)

Mine to sommerlige kort har begge fått hovedmotiv fra The Paper Shelter. Vanligvis foretrekker jeg å fargelegge dem selv, men TPS har allerede fargelagt disse perfekt ♥ Digistemplene kommer både i lineart og ferdig fargelagte motiver. Tilogmed digitale ark eller ferdig komponert følger med på de aller fleste, så man kan gjøre det så enkelt man bare vil! Jeg har kun printet ut motivene, og fargekoordinert med ark fra Panduro. Liker at det går en 'rød tråd' gjennom alt jeg lager, og håper de som mottar kortene setter pris på det :)

"Everything feels so much better with a cup of Tea"

There has not been many blogposts from me over the summer as my health has not been very good of late. Not much craftiness going on in my scraproom.. But instead I've been able to do some much needed re-organizing and cleaning up in my computer folders. Wich is where I found several un-edited cards I had not blogged yet. And I blog pretty much all the things I create, so here are two summery cards with motifs from The Paper Shelter.


http://thepapershelter.com/They have lots and lots of sweet digistamp sets ~ with both linearts and colored images. and although I prefer to do the coloring myself, TPS motifs are already so perfectly colored ♥
I love to make the kind of cards where there is a theme all the way, inside and out, even the back. And I like to think the recipients do appriciate the extra effort :)

8 Penny Black Tags!

 
Jeg har lagd åtte tags som også kan brukes som bokmerker eller gavelapper, alle med kjempesøte Penny Black motiver! Disse morsomme dyrene har jeg vel over 50 gummistempler av, men de var litt for store til å ha på mine små tags. (De er ca. 8 - 15 cm. høye).  Men det fins også mange PB clearstamps sett med små motiver som passet perfekt! Jeg har tolv cs sett hittils, men har veeeldig lyst å kjøpe flere ;) 
Her har jeg brukt 'Purrfect day', 'Critter Party' og 'Every witch way'.
Jeg har med vilje utelatt å lage hull for bånd, og sette tekst på dem, slik at jeg kan gjøre det alt etter hva som passer anledningen når jeg skal bruke eller gi bort noe.
http://papirplaneten1.blogspot.no/2017/08/august-utfordring_1.html 
Papirplanetens utfordring #20. ~ August mnd. har 'Alt er Lov' som tema. Du kan finne flere av stemplene og dies jeg har brukt hos Papirplaneten, linker nederst i bloggposten. Vi håper du føler deg inspirert til å delta med dine kreasjoner hos oss ♥ 
Ha en fortsatt god sommer!

PS: Har hatt migrene de siste dagene :( 
..så bloggposten min er en dag på etterskudd, og jeg må bare beklage sen kommentering rundt om i bloggverden, ikke hatt mye overskudd i det siste ♥




My DT creation for this this months challenge at PapirPlaneten, are eight tags that can be used in journalingbooks, on gifts, or as bookmarks. Sizes are all different, but they are about 8 to 15 cm. tall. 
I intentionally left out making holes for ribbons or adding sentiments so I can stamp that when I need one to fit on any occasion. 
I have used some of my fave stampsets from Penny Black (of wich I have many!) as their small motifs would fit nicely on the tags rather than the bigger rubberstamps (that I have 50+ of as well, hoarder much? LOL).

PapirPlaneten is an norwegian challengeblog and craft shoppe. The theme for August is an 'Anything goes theme', easy peasy! You are more than welcome to join with your creations, but the main prize is only shipped within Norway ♥

BTW. I'm a day late with my post due to having migraines for days now, and I'm so sorry for beeing late commenting on many of your blogs also ♥ ♥ ♥
