Sweet Princess Penny

Vant forrige utfordring hos ADFD ~ så jeg er kjempelykkelig fordi det betyr flere nye digis på meg :) Som jeg har sagt tidligere på bloggen ~ får aldri nok av disse nydelige stemplene!

Happy today! Won the previous challenge over at ADFD ~ wich means more beautiful digistamps for me :) My card today was quick to do ~ I already had a cute stamp inked up & paperpieced, all ready to glitter & glam up on a card!

inside detail
A great tip is to diecut the cardstock u use for the card itself, and use 
the diecut two ways ~ one on the front of the card, and when u layer and
decorate the card u get a neat frame on the inside of the card as well :)

Giordano kitten card ♥

Jeg har ingen anelse om hvor disse flotte diecut-hengslene kommer fra ~ om noen vet, værsåsnill og fortell! Tror jeg kjøpte dem for 5-6 år siden på scrapping.no forumet ~ da jeg var 'fersk' i gamet :)

This charming image comes from the Giordano's Puppies and Kittens CD, wich I got here from Joanna Sheen. The awesome diecut hinges are a mystery to me ~ have no clue where they come from (gotten on a forum ages ago) and if someone knows, please do let me know, 'cause I'd like to find & buy the die for theese ~ if they still exist :)

I'm entering theese challenges:
Cropstop ch. #54. A bit Old you said? ~ distressed, vintage or shabby chic.
Joanna Sheens challenge for January ~ Celebrations (stretching the interpetation 
a wee bit with no sentiment! But the card is to be used for all such occasions :)
The Squirrel & the Fox #9. Critters ~ paws or claws, feathers or fur!
The Crazy Challenge ~ Tic, Tac, Toe ~ Ribbon/Embossing/Diecut.
Truly Scrumptious #72. Something Forgotten ~ the diecuts!
Tuesday Throwdown #81. Neutral Colors ~ Green & brown tones.
UnstampaBelles Challenge #7. Anything Goes (no stamps!)
Pile It On #3. Fuzzy Friends theme.

Stamps/Images: The kitten image is printed out from the Joanna Sheen CD-Rom 'Giordano Puppies and Kittens'.
Bazzill cardstocks
Embellishments/Tools: Panduro Hobby - velvet selfadhesive ribbon. The hinges diecuts are as I said - unknown, and I think the brads are from Doodlebug. I've used Spellbinder Nestabilities 'Petite Scalloped Circle Large S4115' on the card, and then embossed it with the DoCrafts Emb.folder 5X7 - ME TO YOU - primrose background. The card is distressed with cats eye chalks & tim holtz distress inks.

Frosty Snowglobe

Godt Nytt År 2012!
Mine nyttårsforsett: Å starte opp igjen på lavkarboen ~ får håpe det funker iår!... Å endelig få uteboden lagd inredet til scrapperom ~ og å innskrenke pengeforbruket når det gjelder scrappeting i hytt og pine... *lol*
 Er bare såååå mye nytt stæsj og stempler jeg bare må ha hele tiden! Fikk iallefall brukt opp masser med bazzill restepapir til dette kortet ~ alltids kjekt det, istedenfor å kaste i boss bøtta :)

Let the Joy of winter
warm your Heart.
  Happy New Years!   
I have some newyears resolutions for 2012: 
To start up with a new lowcarb diet (wich I failed miserably at last year)... 
To finally make my new scraproom in the outside storage room ~ I think it's about 3x3 meters so there should be enough room! 
And also to cut back on the money use on scrapping stash & stamps... Wich I have TONS of already,  and can never ever get to use up *lol*
 I really enjoyed making the bottom panel of this card ~ a great effect with little effort! It's made out of a whole bunch of scrap cardstock strips I had leftover after scoring tons of base cards in 15x15 cm. It's great to see the scraps put to good use instead of tossing them in the bin :)

Love Angel ♥

Måtte leite frem embossingpulver, luftpistol, skalpell og skjærematte for dette kortet ~ leenge siden sist jeg brukte disse verktøyene! Spellbinders'ene har visst tatt helt over ;) Det ble så utrolig lekkert med varm-embossing så jeg sløyfet å pynte kortet noe mere!
A 'Clean & Simple' card this time ~ didn't think it was neccessary with more bling than that gorgeous heat embossing! A tool I have neglected too much, as well as my scalpel for those bigger frames ~ been relying on the spellbinders too much lately I think ;)
