A hot summer with some love and sunshine :-))))

Today I have 3 projects for 3 different challenges. 

The first one is a tag for Gingersnaps challenge - Sunshine
This boy image and flower is two stamps I've bought used. I don't know the brand of these two stamps, so if anyone know I would love you to leave me a comments. The sandcaste,bucket and tag is from a set I got from Pat on last crop at Scrapshop, the brand of these stamps are The Stamp Bug.
I've colored the boy with LuminArte - Sky Blue.
Tag is made of craft and Cratepaper. Sentiment written by hand.


My second is a project for Gingesnaps challenge heat and sketch challenge at city crafter.
The 'heat' challenge was an easy challenge for me. I just couldn't find my mojo for this. But late last night while working on the card below I came up with the sentiment on this card and that got me started. I like the colorcombo on this card. The image are from a set I bought at Stampinground , I've used Tim Holtz Distress embossing powder - mustard seed. I've also used my Heidi Swapp alphabet that I got from Lauren , and if you visit her blog you might be lucky, cause she has a giveaway right now  ;-).
Paper from Bazzill, Patternpaper from 7gypsies, 2 vintage buttons and text with my Dymo.



My last one today is also for sketch challenge at city crafter.
On this card I've used leaf ribbons I bought at Voss papir, Esbjerg. The same image as above, but have colored the window with distress ink. Flowers from a flower candy I won.
Patternpaper are some leftovers from another project. The bling in the flower is also from Voss Papir.

yesterdays findings

Windows cleaned, spiders removed and yes we are now settled in to our home in Denmark, where we will spend the next 3 weeks.
Yesterday I took my bike and visit some of the local charity shops.
This is some of my findings:
When I'm down here I love going to fairs and markeds in the area to look for treasures. ( And what I think is treasures is not always what the others think is treasures) but I also need to have a check at the local charity shops to see if I can find anything to use on my projects. Yesterday I found many laces and buttons. But my favorite yesterday is old domino game with black thin dominoes. I also had my eyes on a little red typewrite, but I was not gonna carry it on my back when riding my bike.. Hopefully it will get it next time I'm in town. 
Today I'm a creater, not a shopper and tonight we are going to dine in a local and cosy fish restaurant...

x-mas gift box

Gingersnap Creations challenge Once in a Blue Moon Challenge this time is - CASE a Ginger.
When I saw the box over at Ginger Gem Scrappy Suzanne'blog, I just knew I had to make my own.
I'm in a 'x-mas in july' mood, so the fairy turned in to a snowman. I've used red acrylic paint on the box, after several other color attempts. ( We not gonna talk about that now )

Scrappy Suzanne's box

The snowman is one of my first stamps I ever bought , but he's only been used a few times. He is from Rubber Stampede. I colored him with my Promakers. The sentiment stamp is a freebe from Craft Stamper Magazine. Leftover patternpaper from 7Gypsies, snowflakepunch from Martha Stewart.



Here is the box before painted, bought at a local charity shop for approx $1

The x-mas gift box are for these challenges :

A box full of fairies and flowers

Thanks to OJ for inspired med to alter this Lipton tea box.
I've bought the patternpaper from Cherry on top almost a year ago, but I couldn't find any brandname on it. All the fairies are from my first prize over at That's just so cute. 

I've used Tim Holtz box feet and hitch fasteners. I've decorated the front and the sides with gold stickles and thin gold ribbon.

Flowers from Prima and Wild Orchid. Leaves are from a candy I won.

The backside of the box

The box opens and there are room for hiding treasures.

The box are for these challenges :

Da ble det et vintagekort til skisseutfordringen hos Vintagerutfordring.
Lenge siden jeg har laget et kort med vintagelook, så det var kjekt å prøve meg på det. I og med at det er et fødselsdagskort til både en mann og en jente, valgte jeg vekk blomster og tok på litt bling for å kunne følge skissen.
Jeg har brukt bazzill kartong og mønsterpapir fra TPC. Stempeltrykket har jeg fått av KortKari og jeg tror det er fra Kort og Godt. Tekst er skrevet med dymomaskinen. Blonde tror jeg også er fra Kort og Godt, knapp er fra knappeesken min. Alle panelene er distresset med MM edge distresser og deretter har jeg sydd rundt med symaskin.
På innsiden har jeg stempeltrykk fra Norsk stempelblad.
