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 ♥ ♥ ♥

The fabulous metallic gold shine that's all over, is Viva Decor's Inka Gold '901 gold', and I applied it with the best tool ~ my finger ;) NB: ALWAYS use a spatula or something to pick up some inka gold onto your craft mat/plastic surface ~ don't put your finger directly in the box, or you will get mould! Plus don't add water in the box unless it has been boiled = sterile water.

a Pirate's Life for me!


Papirplanetens utfordring #19. ~ for juli mnd. har 'Maritimt ~ bruk puncher og/eller dies' som tema. Du kan finne flere av stemplene og dies jeg har brukt hos Papirplaneten, linker nederst i bloggposten. Vi håper føler deg inspirert til å delta med dine kreasjoner hos oss ♥ Jeg har visst hengt meg helt opp i temaet og glemt å bruke punch og dies, med mindre innsiden teller.. Arrrgh ;) 
Rammen på forsiden har jeg lagd selv, tegnet opp en øy-lignende form med blyant først og så skar jeg ut med skalpell på en selvhelende matte.

Fairy & Toad Step-Up card

 
Denne gangen har vi to kjempeflotte sponsorer ~ Bugaboo Stamps & Rebecca Sinz fra ElvenStar Art ~ for Creative Fingers sin utfordring #133.  
Må bare beklage at DT bidraget mitt er en par dager på etterskudd, har hatt mye plager med hendene mine. (psoriasis++) Skulle ønske jeg var god på å lage kjappe clean & simple kort, men dette motivet fortjente absolutt mere tid og bling! ♥ 

Jeg har brukt et Sweet Pea Stamps gummistempel fra Rebecca Sinz. Motivene hennes kan kjøpes som digitale stempler på etsy, og dette motivet fins som 'Coloring Page Printable Fairy Toad Frog Fantasy Art'. 
Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være :)

Sorry for beeing a couple days late with my DT card for this fortnights challenge #133. at Creative Fingers. Having dealing with alot of health issues lately, and my hands has been very painful (psoriasis++), super difficult to craft when you can't bend your fingers ;) 

We are again so lucky to have two sponsors: Bugaboo Stamps & ElvenStar Art ♥ and as always it is an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations!


I bought a new fun Balloon Step-Up Sizzix Die (it's on sale right now!) and thought it would be perfect to use with the toad and fairy ♥ The round shapes on each fold is actually meant to have balloon diecuts on them, but it can be used for many themes :) 
You can see the designer of the die Stephanie Barnard show it here on youtube.
The gorgeous IndigoBlu gilding flakes has been added to the diecuts the quick and easy way ~ super strong adhesive tape! 
Think it must be the most time consuming card I've ever done, started it a week ago! Although it's an easy fold card to make with the sizzix die, cranking the bigshot was the worst on my hands, and was only able to spend 15 minutes in my craftroom at a time. On the bright side, it turned out very pretty! :)

My main motif is a rubberstamp from Rebecca Sinz, the artist behind ElvenStar Art. It's an old Sweet Pea Stamp, but they have since closed shop, and are not so easy to find anymore. She sells some of her motifs as digistamps and coloringpages (find the fairy toad image here) in her etsyshop linked below :)
