God jul {Mo’s Dream Team}

Hi, everyone! I’m working my way through the alphabet of my unused Mo Manning images, and next on my list was Snow Pals from the Anyu and Nanook set. I’m in the home stretch now, there aren’t a whole lot of images left.

I don’t know what’s going on with me, but I’ve made another red Christmas card. I love creating Christmas cards, but I’m not a fan of red, not even for Christmas. The best thing about creating cards is that they get sent to someone else, so even if I personally don’t like certain colors, I’m getting rid of them eventually anyway, so it doesn’t matter. 😉

Once I’d colored the image with my Copics, I trimmed 1/4″ off each of the four sides and covered the back with foam tape. I found an old scrap of patterned paper from Magnolia that was already cut down to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2″, probably a reject from a previous project, but perfect for this one, the red matches my coloring! It has white “snowflakes” on it. These have 8 points, so they’re not actually snowflakes. There’s no such thing as an eight pointed snowflake (or a five pointed, for that matter), it has to do with how water molecules are formed.

I die cut a couple of scraps of Maja Design patterned paper using two of the Fishtail Flag Frames dies from My Favorite Things. I stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment from Norsk Stempelblad AS onto one of the die cut banners, adhering it to the larger one using 1 mm foam squares for a little bit of dimension. I used the same foam squares on the back of the bigger one and glued both banners to part of a mini doily from Doodlebug adhered to the top left corner of my colored panel. I added a few enamel dots from Papirdesign, and my card was done.

I found an old scrap of patterned paper from 3ndypapir that was just large enough to create an envelope from using the A2 V flap envelope dies from Simon Says Stamp. I thought the color matched the brown in my card nicely.

Not a lot of colors used for this one.

En mann i sin beste alder {Ett trykk}{Mo’s Dream Team}

Dagens kort er et skikkelig gladkort. Jeg syns hvertfall at denne herremannen ser ganske sprek og glad ut. Motivet heter He’s Still Got It og kommer fra Mo Manning. Kortet er publisert i oktobernummeret av Ett trykk.

Utrolig nok er dette i hovedsak et kort laget med rester. Med ark fra Maja Design, Inkido, Making Memories og 3ndypapir er det et under at det i det hele tatt ble et bruktbart resultat ut av det hele til slutt. Men jeg liker fargekombinasjonen rød og turkis. Tekstene kommer fra Norsk Stempelblad, bokstavene i navnet er fra Panduro. Tannhjulene, klokken og pilen er alle fra Tim Holtz.

Teksten inni er også et stempel fra Norsk Stempelblad, stemplet med Papertrey Ink Aqua Mist blekk, akkurat som stemplene på forsiden.

Den andre innsiden har masse plass til en personlig hilsen, og for å ta igjen temaet med tannhjulene fra forsiden har jeg her satt på et par tannhjul i finér fra Wycinanka.

Baksiden har nok et stempel fra Norsk Stempelblad og flere Wycinanka-tannhjul.

Å la sommeren gå… {Mo’s Dream Team}

Det er onsdag, og det betyr Dream Team-tid for meg. Det er offisielt den siste dagen av sommeren i dag, i morgen er det høst. Hva er mer naturlig når sommeren er over enn å hoppe rett over til jul? Det er nemlig det jeg har gjort.

It’s Wednesday, which means Dream Team time for me. Today’s officially the last day of summer, fall is coming tomorrow. What’s more natural at the end of summer than skipping straight to Christmas? That’s what I’ve done. 

Mo Manning Sharing a Song forsideJeg har fargelagt motivet Sharing a Song med Copics og embosset med shabby white embossingpulver fra Stampendous, før jeg har lagt snow paint på bakken.

I’ve colored Sharing a Song with Copics, before embossing with Stampendous shabby white embossing powder. When I was done I put snow paint on the ground. 

Mo Manning Sharing a Song forside skråttUtrolig nok er dette et restekort. Bortsett fra kartongen (Bazzill Java, Vanilla og Classic Smooth White) er alt av papir resteark. Her er det Maja Design, 3ndypapir, Inkido, Fancy Pants og Kreativ Hobby i skjønn harmoni. Jeg har gjort pynten enkel med chipboardsnøfnugg fra Maya Road som jeg har malt hvite og dekket med distressglitter. Teksten fra Norsk Stempelblad AS er stemplet med Papertrey Ink Scarlet Jewel blekk, punchet ut med en 1″ sirkelpunch og dekket med en pebble.

Amazingly enough, this card is made from scraps. Aside from the cardstock (Bazzill Java, Vanilla and Classic Smooth White), every bit of paper is from my scrap pile. Maja Design, 3ndypapir, Inkido, Fancy Pants, and Kreativ Hobby are working together in harmony. I kept the embellishments simple with Maya Road chipboard snowflakes that I painted white and added distress glitter to. I stamped the Norsk Stempelblad AS sentiment using Papertrey Ink Scarlet Jewel ink, punched a 1″ circle and covered it with a pebble. 

Mo Manning Sharing a Song innsideInnsiden har jeg laget veldig enkel. Kun en sirkel med tekst fra North Star Design.

I made the inside very simple. Just a circle with a North Star Design sentiment.

Simple on the back, too, with a Kort & Godt sentiment.
