Pink confirmation card

 
Min DT inspirasjon for Papirplanetens April utfordring er et rosa og veldig 'blingete' konfirmant kort! Denne mnd. er det 'Våren og/eller Konfirmasjon' som tema. Kortets hovedmotiv er et foto av ei jente som baby, så jeg har sensurert det litt :)

Du kan finne flere av tingene jeg har brukt hos Papirplaneten, med linker nederst i bloggposten. Vi håper du føler deg inspirert til å delta med dine kreasjoner hos oss ♥


My very blingy & pink DT inspiration for this months challenge at PapirPlaneten is a confirmation easel card. The main motif I cannot show as it is a photo of the girl confirmand as a baby, so I censored it :)

PapirPlaneten is an norwegian challengeblog and craft shoppe, and the theme for April is 'Spring and/or Confirmation'. You are more than welcome to join with your creations, but the main prize is only shipped within Norway ♥

Penguin's Winter Fun

 
Det kjempesøte pingvin motivet på julekortet mitt er et stempel fra Whiff of Joy og Alison Acton. WOJ har dessverre har sluttet som butikk, men mange fører fremdeles stempler fra dem (helt til det går tomt).. PapirPlaneten har ganske mange igjen :)

Alison Acton går under nicket @dooomcat på nett, og hun har en helt hysterisk morsom tegneserie ~ Bearnuts ~ som du kan lese helt fra begynnelsen på denne siden. NB: ikke ment for sarte sjeler ;)


The supercute penguin motif on my christmascard is an old rubberstamp from Whiff of Joy, who's webshoppe sadly no longer exists. But there are still many stores who still have them in stock if you search around for it!

The artist behind the motif is Alison Acton, and although I don't believe she's licensing her art as stamps anywhere, she still creates fanart and images you can get on tees, I got a couple cool ones in my always growing tee-stash ;)  
She goes by @doomcat online and also has THE funniest webcomic, super weird and nerdy, so dark sometimes, and absolutely not for the faint hearted.. ;)  Bearnuts ~ wich you can read from the beginning on this page here

Arabian Nights ~ Once Upon a time...

 
Igjen har jeg funnet frem Hero Arts sitt klubb nydelige klubbkit med '1001 natt' tema dies og stempler fra desember ifjor, denne gang sammen med et par av mine absolutt eldste stempler ~ All Night Media øyenstikkeren må vel være rundt 20 år gammelt for det var allerede et godt brukt stempel da jeg kjøpte det for mer enn ti år siden, og både Lazar StudioWerx snirkel stemplet og Whiff of Joy jenta inni er fra stempelsett jeg kjøpte i 2010! 
De holder seg godt :) Selv om jeg nok har ti ganger flere digitale stempler, så er det fremdeles mine kjære gummistempler jeg elsker mest


I have yet again taken out and played with my fabulous Scheherazade / Arabian nights theme Hero Arts Monthly clubkit from december last year ~ this time pairing it with a couple of my oldest stamps of my collection. The All Night Media dragonfly has got to well around 20 years old by now, as it was already old and well used when I bought it second-hand more than ten years ago. And both the swirl stamp from Lazar StudioWerx and the Whiff of Joy girl inside my card is of a stampset I bought back in 2010! All three gone out of business ages ago...
Talking about oldies but goodies! :) Even if I probably have ten times more digistamps than I do rubber and clear, the sweet rubberstamps will always be my not-so-secret-hoarding-addiction and absolute favourites
