Not Quite Straight @ I ❤️ ProMarkers

Good Morning
It’s Wednesday, and time for a new challenge over at

I ❤️ ProMarkers
This weeks theme is
«Not Quite Straight»

I hope you’ll join this one.

This week we have two wonderful sponsors:

Stitcy Bear Stamps

I have decorated a book where I plan to write in my favourite recipes.
I bought this Dp a long time ago, (Vibeke Spigseth Poppydesign), with a recipebook in mind, but  have forgotten completely about the book and the papers until I got this digi-image (from Stitchy Bears, BB Kakes Chef)
Isn’t it just perfect for a recipebook?
I love it - and it was rather easy to colour (though I’m not good at fur…)
Lots of layers - «not quite straight» - put together with some laces, a heartshaped brad, a ribbon and some charms (knife, fork and a spoon), and that’s about it. My book is finished, and here it is:
(The milkcartons on the paper look just like they did when I was a child - love it!)

I hope this have inspired you to make a «Not Quite Straight» project and join us at
I ❤️ ProMarkers

ProMarkers used to colour the image:
Cocoa, Tan, Almond, Satin
Warm Grey 1, 3
Burgundy, Poppy, Red


I’ll join these challenges:
Crafting For All Seasons #76 - Lots of Layers
That Craft Place - Anything Goes

Scribble And Scrap #17 - Anything goes

Birthday @ Storyteller

Good Morning To You All.
Today we have a new challenge for you over at
with the fantastic theme
That’s fun, or what?
We all make birthdaycards, so I hope many of you will join us for this one.
-just remember to use Storytellerproduct on your project :)

I have waited sooo to show you the card I made for this challenge.
I can’t remember to have made anything this boldcoloured or -patterned.
I used Primas Mixed Media Doll Stamp 1, with paperpieced clothes - oh that was FUN!
I chose not to colour or draw a face to the stamped image. I just cut out and glued down the clothes, and added Glitterstickles to the hair.
Because the image is quite tall, the card had to be in a larges size than I normally do, this is about 8x5 inches.

Cardstock: Bazzill
DPs: Prima
Stamp: Prima
Flowers, Ribbon, Butterfly: Storyteller
Glitterstickles, Glimmermist (Rose Tea), GlimmerGlam (Tutu Pink), DistressInk WalnutStain
Homemade Pin

The inside of the card has a very simplified version of the outsidesketch, and just a little stamped greeting (Kort & Godt)

The back of the card is made as the front, but without any image

I’ll enter the following challenges with my Birthdaycard:
Fan-Tastic Tuesday #32 - Anything Goes
Crafty Catz #228 - Anything Goes
Brown Sugar #91 - Anything goes
Sister Act #54 - Cards Only
Creative Knockouts #34 - Anything Goes
Fab ’n’ Funky Challenges #213 - Paper Piecing
Creative Card Crew #60 - Girly
Through The Craft Room Door - Anything Goes

Lemon and Lime

Hello Friends and Followers
I have made a card very inspired by the colourchallenge over at Sketchy Colors.
My immediate thought when I saw this weeks challengetheme was «this isn`t anything for me».
Yellow and Lime - No, that can’t be done!
As the days went I thought more and more of the colours, and how to make something with the colours lemon and lime.
-So I found one of my many beloved My Besties-images, DPs in the right colours and some long time forgotten ProMarkercolours, and started colouring.
Honestly; I have never used this colourcombination, so finding the ProMarkers for the image - and findig wich of them blended well together was a kind of adventure.
An adventure I think worked out rather well after som trying.  

One of the insidepanels aren’t attached yet. I always stamp the greeting onto the panel before attaching it. When I ‘m not quite sure wich greeting to use, I just leave it like this until I know which stamp to use…

The backside has also got a lime-ish coloured DP:

Vintage Confirmationcard

Good Morning To You All!
Fantastis Saturday, having the weekend off from work, 
I hope to spend many hours in my craftroom - love the thought of it; crafting - coffee, looking through your blogs, coffee, youtubevideos of cardmakingtips, more coffee, maybe a little blogging - just a couple of happydays 😍

Today I want to show you another confirmationcard I’ve just made.
I’m gonna need lots of confirmationscards this year, and I still haven’t started on the boys cards yet! Feeling a little panic! 

On this card I used a digital image from a sheet I won from Scribble and Scrap a little while ago.
The papers are from Pion - love this purplepink shade!
To decorate it I’ve used a little lace, a perlstring, some flowers, leaves and halfpearls - and a couple of dies. The swirldie is from MarianneDesign, I don’t know where the one I used for the textpanel is from. The textstamp is from Kort & Godt.
On the inside I used a textstamp from Papirdesign and a swirlstamp from Inkadinkado.

Here’s the card, from different angles:
