Rubber Dance December challenge -a third one!

Well, one more!
This December challenge at Rubber Dance blog has really challenged me =) Here comes my third and last entry, this time I go for just the glitter part! After all, it's New Year Celebration Time tomorrow...
This time I have made a CAS, a clean and simple card. That doesn't mean it's easy to manage, not at all what I usually do. But I have a crafting friend that is a whisard when it comes to this genre and she inspires me to give it a try once in a while. Who? Well, Anna is her name but you've probably seen her as Uraanna at Instagram or Urascrap.
So here we go:
 It looks and is supposed to look simple: just a text stamp and a heartshaped dies (Yes, from Gummiapan once again).
The heartshaped dies gave me the idea of creating a supersmall shaker container. Why make it easy when you can complicate things?!
So I used some foam and after a bit of fussy cutting glued a piece of OH-plastic on top of it to create a small container.
I used some hard-grained glitter, a bit of the heavier type, since the container is so small and I didn't want all the glitter to get stucked in a corner. To get this to work I had to pour the glitter on the cardbase and adjust it according to where I wanted my container. And yes, I like to challenge both my stubbornness and my patience!
Finally a close up.
Wish you all a great last day of the year!

Rubber Dance December challenge -one more!

Hello again!
Well, I really enjoyed the combination of rose, light blue and peach for the December Challenge at Rubber Dance blog, so here comes one more entry:
I've colored circles on aquarelle paper and then stamped and glitterembossed a flower. Yes, both the colours and glitter as well =) Can't have too much glitter I think!
A close up at the glittery flower but a bit blurry I'm afraid. Well, at least you can see it's glittery.
The tag with some text says "Enjoy your day, hip hip hooray!" The last part was quite easy to understand even if you don't know Swedish I think: That means we've probably stolen that phrase...
Since I don't own any of the beautiful stamps from Rubber Dance, I've used some stamps from Gummiapan again.
If, and that's highly unlikely, but if I'm the lucky one to win, I know exactly what I will choose: the beautiful Entangled Heart stamp designed by Melina and probably some more of her fantastic designs... Also there's a supercute bunny designed by Donna...
Well, who ever wins will have a tough time choosing among all the fantastic stamps! If you haven't come across the Rubber Dance shop yet, go and check it out and you'll understand what I'm waffling about =)

Rubber Dance December challenge

At Rubberdance they have a fun challenge:
Well, the colours are happy ones and a change from the Christmas theme so I decided to have a go!
My card is made for new years' eve:
All the stamps come from a Swedish company called Gummiapan. The text "En stjärna är född" means A star is born, perfect for the beginning of a newborn and glittery 2018!
Gummiapan has a lot of fun stamps and texts both in English, German and Danish besides a lot in Swedish of course =)
This happy fellow really looks as if he wants to embrace the new year! I've colored him with copic pens.
The glittery dots are a background stamp I've embossed and the tiny star stamps has a cover of glitter glue.
With this card I wish you all
A Happy New Year!!!!

PaperArtsy #18: one more!

Hi again!
To crinkle and tear is great fun: my second take at the challenge at Paper Artsy.
This time I created a frame card, still Christmas themed =)
Well, lets start from the beginning.... As with the earlier card, I began with some old book pages. I colored them in with distress oxides and stamped as well, inspired by Claire. I sprayed some water to make the oxide color react and sprinkled some white and gold mist as well. After that I crinkled it.
Inspired by Chris, I made a frame card and put my crinkled paper as a background with a snowman as a front figure. My snowman is a rubber stamp from Magnolia Design, a Swedish stamp company not far from where I live actually.
I felt something was missing so with help of a needle I put some golden strings into the frame as well and glued a few golden stars on them. Finically? Oh yes, but why make things easy?!
Also I wanted to add a God Jul/Merry Christmas in the bottom left corner. Still, why go the easy way....?! So at this late stage I decided to emboss my text.... Well, the card luckily survived!
The text stamp comes from Gummiapan, another Swedish stamp company with a line of their own stamps, both in English, German, Danish and Swedish.
A close up at my snowman, colored with Copic pens.
Bye for now,

PaperArtsy #18: Torn, ripped, burnt

Paper Artsy have such fun challenges and a lot to be inspired from and learn at their blog. This time the mission is to tear, crinkle and burn, well not as in starting a fire... But I managed to melt the foam tape when heating the embossing powder... Thatś what happens when you find out what to add a bit too late... But luckily no fire =)
I made a Christmas card which turned out like this:
As you can see I've torn book pages inspired by the intro to the challenge.

Between the torn book pages I put some cheese cloth just like Raquel did on her project. But first I tea dyed it like Lynne did with some lace. The Chistmas tree is crinkled, inspired by the background that Chris made.
And to finish it up I added some embossing enamel and typed God Jul/Merry Christmas at the typing machine.
Hugs n' stuf,
