This weeks stamps are Girl eating melon, Dots, Swirl 4 and Swirl 2. You will find that they have a lower price than usual in the webshop. You don’t need to wait for a personal email confirmation before paying.

Here are a few examples of how to use these stamps.

I’ve used Dots on the background with a white stamp pad. I’ve also smudged some distress ink onto the white dots around the photo and used the same pad to stamp some swirls. Under the purple flower you see a Swirl 2 as well. Girl eating melon is colored with ProMarkers.

Girl eating melon colored with ProMarkers also on the card. This time the Dots are stamped in a color that match the paper to blend in more.

Here is the sketch of the week! I hope it will inspire.

Here is an LO I’ve made using the sketch.

I’ve used the Bubbly journaling spot, Att minnas (swedish text stamp) and Dotted circle.

A pretty simple card with Hugging Couple colored with distress ink.

It feels like I’m in a flow right now! I’ve created lots of things the last few days. A Cyber Crop and all it’s challenges has helped kick start me of course :D

Here are a few of my creations:

I’ve used lots of Urban stamps but also stamps from Filiona, Majaroni and Maja’s Friends.

Today I’ve used the lovely clouds from Urban Sky; medium and small. I decided to stamp on colored paper and the clouds are stamped and cut out from green CS. I’ve also used Circle Large which is one of my favourites if you hadn’t already guessed ;) The circle is stamped on light blue CS and colored with a darker blue. I’ve also used a bubbly journaling spot.

We have picked out a few stamps to put on sale this week too. It is a couple of Maja’s Friends stamps: Boy with Fishing Pole, Pier, Tree trunk, Sun rays och Small, Medium and Large Cloud. All these are much fun to use together and to build your own small scenes.

Here’s a card with all of this weeks stamps except the tree trunk. I’ve used distress ink to color with. The ocean is done with a mask, spunge and distress pad. The sky is done with distress too. The fishing boy is cut out and glued to the background together with some details.

The title for this one is “Kalas i shogen” which means “Birthday party in the Forest”. It’s my father-in-law who loves the outdoors and we always celebrate him out in the woods. So this time the fishing boy became a boy with a sausage on a stick to barbeque over the fire! This time I’ve used ProMarkers to color. Notive that his feet got shoe laces so I could color them as boots. More suitable for the outdoor. I’ve also used the small butterfly from Maja’s Friends and the Scallop Spot Rectangle Large.

All the stamps can be found on the fron page of the web shop. Price is already reduced so you don’t ned to wait for a personal confirmation before paying.

Hope you like ‘em!

Here comes this weeks sketch! We hope it’ll inspire.

And this week we have some guests to inspire you! I was invited to my mother-in-law friday to saturday last week to scrap with her, my mother, some sisters-in-law and friends. We had a great time and a few challenges of course. One challenge was the sketch above so here are our interpretations of the sketch.

These are (in order) by me, Anneli, Lena, Cajsa, Margreth and Katrin.

I’ve continued enjoying the stamps from Tingtura Design - Urban, and I’m exploring new ways of using them. For this LO I’ve used mainly the colors brown, white and red. It’s fun to use the basic colors and straight lines with stamps from the Urban collection since it creates a nice contrast. I’ve added the half pearls for the same reason: contrasts nicely with the paper.

I have used the stamps dotted circle (somewhat of a personal favourite), circle large and the small flying star.

I often work with my photos in some computor program to get some effects. This time I decided to stamp on the photo instead to get the effects. I used acrylic paint istead of a stamp pad just so it would dry faster, and I also like what the acrylic does with the motiv. The edges on the motiv are stronger and frames it. I have used Urban Stars startexture. On the rest of the LO I used Urban Sky small circle and on the small chipboard dots I used Urban Stars star heart. For the journaling I used Tingtura Journaling rektangel linjerad and this happened

I’m doing a small side project that I add a few pages to now and then. It’s a chipboard album shaped as a heart where I scrap photos of me and my niece doing funny faces. It’s kinda a tradition for us two to take crazy photos now and then when we meet and we always laugh looking at the photos. In this album there will be a series of five photos taken at the same time, hence the numbering of the page.

I’ve dressed the album in ordinary bazzil paper and painted a black frame around the edges of the heart using ProMarkers. I’ve stamped and embossed Bubble Wrap as a frame around the photo. I’ve also stamped partially on the photo since I think it looks cool and adds to the frame effect nicely. The swirls are colored with ProMarkers and high lighted with a white pen.
