It’s monday again and time for a new sketch! Hope it will inspire you :)

I’ve made a layout and a card inspired by the sketch

On the layout I’ve used Lined Rectangle Spot och fish from Maja’s Friends.

For the card I used Bunny buddies from Filiona and some of our swedish text stamps (du är söt = you are cute). The bunnies are colored with ProMarkers. The blue bunny is a little embarassed by what the pink bunny is saying so it got a little pink dry chalk on it’s cheak. :)

Last week Sofie was one of many who was inspired by our sketch and sent a photo of her creation to us. Isn’t it a beautiful card?

If you make something inspired by the sketch please send it to us at sketch@tingtura.se or show it on our message board.

I really like these bunny buddies, they are so cute! Here I wanted to creata a more “shabby” card so I’ve used a couple of Urban stamps. In the background you see Wavy Dots and there are also Blob 1 and Blob 2. “Hej!” means Hello.

For this card I wanted to use the bunny buddies to make a birthday card. So I used a small stamp with a package!

I love spring! Where I live, spring is coming along slowly. And I find it so inspiring to here the snow dripping from the roof. So I had to make a spring card and send to a friend, with lovely spring colours and the beautiful Three flowers from Filiona animalfriends. Unfortunally when I looked out the window this morning there was snow all over….again.

the text on the card says: Finally, spring is on it’s way!

Is it spring where you live?

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.

For those of you that don’t know, Tingtura Design is run by husband and wife Niklas and Kristina (Kicki) Mårdby. During november we joined a stamping contest with eight teams of five stampers. Niklas was the only guy :) Teams were randomly put together and we ended up on the same team! It was great fun!

Here are what we made for the nine challenges! Can you guess which is made by who? Please leave a comment :D If you manage to guess right, there should be an award for that, shouldn’t it? :P

First challenge was to come up with a team name. We called ourselves “Red Hot Chili Stampers” and Niklas photoshoped a quick lil avatar for us.

Our team didn’t win the competition though we won some of the challenges. It was a lot of work since these ten challenges came quite close to each other (1-3 challenges per week), but it was a lot of fun. So, can you guess which card is made by who? :P

We hope you’ve had a wonderful Christmas and wish you a Happy New Year!

We celebrate 2nd Advent here in Sweden and it’s time for another comment lottery. Each comment (one per person, and before next sunday) to this blog entry is one lottery ticket! You can win the lovely Filiona Angel (see below)….

It’s my turn to blog a card and I’d like to show this card that I’ve made for StampARTic’s challenge where you are supposed to make a card without any patterned paper. Simple! :) I’ve used a white paper and lots of stamping-fu. First the finished result and then the explanation.

Material: White paper. Angel from Filiona. Star spot from Tingtura Journaling #2. Lots of star stampls from Urban Stars (mainly the star texture). JulKram! from Filiona. Blue distress pad and refill (Faded Jeans). Waterproof black stamp pad. I’m sure you can find the pads at one of our retailers.

First we stamp the angel in black in the middle of the paper. Then we stamp the angel again on a post-it note. I’ve cut the postit-angel with a little margin and then put it over the angel on the card (this is whats called to mask something)

Now we stamp the journaling star on a piece of paper. I stamped twice and cut out another mask. Now it’s play time :D

The cut out journaling star mask (*phew*) is now placed on the card and we stamp away with the star texture. Remember to load the stamp full with ink from the pad and stamp several times to get that lovely faded effect. Some stars are stronger blue while some are more faded this way. Like a stary sky :)

We also load the sponge (did I forget to mention that among the materials above? oops) with ink from the pad and dab along the edge of the mask. This might take a bit practice so play around a little. Move the mask and repeat! :D

To finish the card I’ve stamped the Star once and then JulKram in blue, since I thought that it might look nice (and I thought it did turn out ok to). It doesn’t show well in the photo but I dabbed a couple of times with the text stamp around the stamped text to get the same faded feel on the text to match the stars.

Now we remove the postit-angel and color it with distress ink. I’ve just gone around the edges with blue and then drawn the color with a wet brush to get that nice faded effect (again?! he likes fading doesn’t he?!). The angel wings get some glitter and the eyes get a little 3D glaze.

Whadya think?

And this is when I have to mention that as a member of the Tingtura Club you can buy the journaling star at half price right now! ;) *hint hint*

I thought I’d show another way to fold your cards. I did this card for a challenge from StampARTic. It was a little difficult to get it the way I wanted. Im sure its much easier to have a cover instead of a window like I did.

This is what the card looks like closed:

And when you open it it looks like this:

I’ve used cardstock sized 6″x12″ (approx 15×30cm) for the card. I’ve creased at 2″, 4″, 8″ and 10″ (approx 5, 10, 20, 25cm) and then decorated with patterned paper, Tingtura stamps and other decorations.

The art stamps used are all from the Filiona collection: Holly and Elf Couple. The holly and couple are colored using MCP technique.

The clear plastic was embossed with an embossing folder in the Cuttlebug. The loveyl ribbon is from the webshop too.
