Mini Smash book- GDT Ett Trykk


Hi peeps,

Today I want to show you a mini- smash book I made for the February Edition of Ett Trykk Magazine. I found this tutorial over at Stampin' Up by Papercraft Button.

Sentiments are by Norsk Stempelblad AS, Papers by Maja Design, Flowers and seam binding by Wild Orchid Craft, pearls by Panduro. Dies by Memorybox (Swirl),  Spellbinders (around the front image), and Go Create (tag dies inside the book).
The Seam binding was white so I used Copic color BV23 to get a matching color.

 Copics used:
Skin: E13-11-21-000, R20
Hair: E29-25-21
Clothes: BV29-25-23-21, W7
Greys: W7-3-1-00

DT Copic Marker Europe: Bookmark

Hi crafty friends,

Today I want to show you a bookmark I made for my daughter. She's 8 and she loves to read. This is one of my Copic Marker Europe projects this month.  
I got this Saturated Canary image a while back, and I thought it was perfect for a bookmark for her. Playful and fun. 

I used very few embellishments, because the bookmark has to be as flat as possible. I used papers by Maja Design, a Martha stewart punch and a Tim Holtz wooden charm. I used wax-thread with beads and charms for the "chain". 


 Because the image is the main decoration on the bookmark I had some fun playing with the background.
Copic Colors used: 
Hair. E18-15, YR18-14, E49
Skin: E13-11-21-000, R20. R22 for the lips with just a little E04
Purple: BV08,V09-17-15-12-000
Jeans and blue details: B99-97-95-93-91
"White": W7-3-1-00
Ground: E35-33-31-30m Grass; G03-07-43-46, YG67
Cloudy sky: B000-B91, C1-00



Hope you like it!

Hi crafty freinds, 
I hope you are having a great weekend out there. I'm out sick with fever and a cold, so not much crafting going on right now. So bored, but too tired to get out of bed...lol. I figured I would do some blogging while I'm lying here! 

I wantet to show you a card I made for Ett Trykk Magazine, February edition 2015. It was the 10th year anniversary issue, and I'm so proud my card was on the cover:)
You should stop by the blog to see all the birthday fun going on over there! 

I have seen these types of cards around blogland, so I thought I could give it a try. I found a tutorial over at Stampin Up. I made it bigger and used colored images to decorate.

Materials used: 
Sentiment stamps -  Norsk Stempelblad AS
Holtz- Perfect Coloring Paper, 
Pion Design– design papers
Panduro - pearls
Dies: Spellbinders – scalloped cirkledies, La La Land Crafts – Heart banner, Magnolia – Heart tag, Martha Stewart – Butterfly edge punch, 
Silhouette - baloons

I used the same copic colors on all 3 images and the balloons.

The butterflies are leftover from the Martha Stewart butterfly border punch. I colored them with the same copic markers as I did the images.

GDT The Paper Nest Dolls- Flower Friend

Hi friends, 
Hope you had a nice weekend. I had time for some crafting, luckily, and here's my GDT card for the Paper Nest dolls. I played with a fun fold I found over at the Ett Trykk blog, it's a slide card.
I made the card a little bigger than the template to make it fit the colored image.

I used papers by Bildmålarna, flowers by WOC (I colored them with my copics B63 to make the color fit the papers and image), Charms from ebay, dies are Spellbidners Large Oval and Scalloped Oval and Magnolia Lovely Fence and Marianne grass dies. 

The image is from the Fairytale collection over at The Paper Nest Dolls, this one is called Flower Friend. Copic Markers used: 
Skin: E13-11-21-000, R20
Hair: YR24-23, 14, Y21-11, E35-37
Dress: R000-02-20, E43, W1
Flower: B66-63-60, W3
Dots. C01, B60-63, W00-01

Here the slide card open. I stamped a Stempelglede sentiment on the lower part and made room for writhing on the top slide. Cute fold, isn't it?

 I used smaller versions of the spellbinder dies on the slides. 

Hope you like it! 
Thanks for stopping by today! Wishing you a wonderful week!

Happy birthday Ett Trykk!!! - Mini tutorial on how to color an image using distress inks.

The Norwegian Magazine Ett Trykk is celebrating  it's 10 year anniverseray! I am honored to join in the celebration with a fun challenge and special post over at the Ett Trykk blog. Please pop by to join in the fun!

I made two small tutorials on how to color with distress inks and copic markers.
You can see the Copic Marker card and tutorial HERE!

For Norsk versjon sjekk Ett Trykk blog.

Here's my card using Distress inks to color the image.
Materials used: Maja Design design papers, Sizzix Tim Holtz- Picture Wheel dies, Spellbinders - Swirl and corner dies, La La Land crafts - Lattice border dies, WOC and Kort og Godt- flowers, Panduro - pearls. I used my sewing machine on the edges of the design papers, and Vintage photo distress ink. Sentiment stamp by Norsk Stempelblad. 


Here are the two images, copics left and distress inks on the right:


Here are some tips on how to color using distress inks:
When coloring with distressink I stamp with StazOn ink on Heavy Aquarell paper (300g) and I use a thin synthetic brush to paint. I use distress ink  pads, refills or markers. When coloring apply a small amount of ink with a brush (or marker), dip the brush in water, wipe some of the water of on a a paper towel and use circular movements to blend the ink, quickly before it dries. Repeat layer by layer with the colors you want to use.

I start using Tattered Rose (top right), then a second layer using Vintage Photo (top left). Cheeks are a mixture of Tattered Rose and Aged Mahogony (just a little tiny drop). For the hair I use Antique Linen for the first layer, then Walnut Stain another two or three layers.

Bodice and branch are colored with Antique Linen, then Walnut Stain and I use Black Sooth for shading (a very small amount). The bird is colored using Wild Honey and Vintage Photo. Black Sooth for the eggs. Leaves are colored with Bundled Sage and Black Sooth.
The skirt is colored using Velvet Rose, and then Black Sooth for shading. 
The background is Stormy Sky.


The beautiful image is Red Rose by Little Darling Rubber Stamps/ Saturated Canary

Hope you picked up a tip or two. And I do hope you will be joining in the challenge over at
