We have just released a new version of an old favourite Majaroni stamp. The old Majaroni stamps are the first we made and their quality cannot be compared to what Tingtura Design produce today. This is why we are releasing these new “best of Majaroni” stamps using old images but improving the quality a LOT (through some high tech computer wizarding Adobe-fu).

Fairy with flower is first to hit the shelves.

To celebrate this first “best of Majaroni” stamp we offer you some blog candy :)

What you need to do is:

- Show the image below in your blog

fairy_ny

- Link back to our blog

- Comment on this post with a link to your blog and tell us which stamp from the old Majaroni Fairytale sets you would like to see as a new “best of” stamp.

Do this before midnight sunday 26th of july and you might win the lottery of ALL FIVE brand new stamps from last week (one lottery ticket per person).

Wait? Was there more new stamps than the Fairy? Four new Urban stamps by Niklas Mårdby of course :) Let me show you how much fun you can have with them.

Bienvenue means Welcome in french. This card was sent to our first french retailer as a little welcome to the growing Tingtura family.

On this card I’ve used the new version of Fairy with flower. The cute fairy is colored with Copics. The new stamps used are Splatter Texture Rectangle (also available as circle), Star Texture Rectangle and Star Texture Circle. These new Urban stamps are so much fun to play with! I’ve also used some old favourites: Dotted Circle Small (the circle stamps fits perfectly on your punched Retro Flowers!), Butterfly, Grunge Edge, Word Texture and Heart full of Grunge. The butterfly is embossed with lovely Sweet Heart. I also like our new grey drops that fit the grungy flowers.

I hope you like all our new stamps and good luck in the blog candy lottery! :D

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.

Challenge #2

Color challenge. Each team member gets one color: red, green, yellow, blue and purple. Use your color and none of the other four..

Stamps used: Package opening monster, Ha en underbar jul (swedish text stamp), Slim cat, vill du leka med mig? (swedish text stamp)

Challenge #4

Sketch challenge.

Stamps used: Girl with gift, bubblewrap, Flower and lots of of Urban and swirls from Journaling #2 again. Who is it that likes Urban? Can you guess… :P

Challenge #10

Make a Christmas recipe.

Stamps used: Christmas Frorg, God Jul stor (swedish text stamp), Circle Large, Santas helpers Couple, 1-3 Swirl.

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!

It’s not many days left until Christmas :) Yesterday my boy had his last day in school for this year and of course his teacher got a Christmas gift. I altered matchboxes for everyone and they also got a scented candle. One of his teackers are male and I wanted to avoid the most cute stamps on his matchbox, and the Majaroni Santa was perfect!! Isn’t he lovely?!

Can you imagine that it’s already week 50?! Soon Christmas and a New Year! :D But it’s also Monday and time for a new sketch and some inspiration.

This sketch can become cards and layouts. Here is a card from Julia in our Design Team and a layout from me. Both inspired from the sketch of course.

Julia has used one of the new Majaroni Christmas stamps: Monster Opening Package. I’ve used the journaling spot “Du Är” (means “You are”) and Wavy Dots from Urban Textures.
