For this card I used Lovis and Bubbly from journaling #1

Already a new month and time for another challenge!

This is what you’re gonna do:

- Create something inspired by the sketch
- Use at least one stamp from Tingtura (no other material limits)
- Send your contribution (one per person) to challenge@tingtura.se latest 30 of April

The winner gets a gift voucher worth 100 SEK!

Here are two interpretations of the sketch:

For this layout I made my own background using Dots several times with a watermark stamp pad and then embossed with clear powder. The journaling spot is Scallop Small and I stamped it with StazOn on a piece of clear plastic. The red hearts will soon appear in the webshop too.

For the card I used one of our big sellers Girl hugging Heart and she is colored with distress ink. On the big flower I stamped Bubbel wrap Medium and on the small flower its Dotted circle small. Then I sprayed them with a few different mists. Stamping and spraying flowers is such a simple technique and it gives them so much more life! We have lots of texture stamps you should try this with.

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.

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.

In just a few days, Valentine is here! I’m planning on sending cards to friends and beloved ones just to show them that I think of them and I’m happy they’re in my life. You do this far too seldom, and I think it’s great to have a special day to remind me of this.

Today I will show you one of the cards I’ll send and the stamped image is my new love - Robot with heart! It was love at first sight - the robot really inspires me! I can guarantee that you will se lots of the robot on my cards in the future.

The robot is fastened with two coins and a 3D foam square, which allows the robot to move about in the slit that I cut out using my paper trimmer and craft knife. In the background I’ve used Wavy Beam. The robot is coloured with Promarkers, as always nowadays. You wouldn’t believe that I gave away the first ones I bought because I didn’t like them.

I would love to see what pretty things you create for Valentine’s! Please leave a comment with a link to your blog so we can have a look.

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!

Monday means new sketch!

This one is an old one from my sketch book. I hope it will inspire you.

I’ve also made a card and LO inspired by the sketch.

I turned the sketch and interpreted it a little different for the card. I used the stamps Mother and sleeping baby, Prinsessa (swedish text) and one of the small words (swedish). I colored the mother and child with distress ink and the eyes got a little black Sakura Glaze.

On the layout I used Large Circle and Circle Medium from Urban Sky, Rectangle Journalingspot from Journaling #2 and the square från Swirls #1. If you want to see more photos of how the LO was made then hop over to one of Swedens largest blogs caled Scrappizbloggen were I was invited to write a little about how my creation process looks like. If you don’t speak swedish then just look at the photos :)
