Best of the Bunch {Mo’s Dream Team}

Wednesdays are funny. They come around every single week, and the calendar says it’s Wednesday AGAIN. Which means one thing around these parts – Mo Manning inspiration from me.

This time I’ve got a cute birthday card featuring the always adorable Best of the Bunch. I saw Liz had colored up this cutie in the most gorgeous way last week, and she inspired me to create this one.

I’ve used the same colors as she did for the skin and the hair (her hair is a lot lighter, though). The greens are also the same, but I’ve changed everything else. The card itself is made with a die set from Go Kreate (XXL Square Frames Frilly #10, try saying that ten times fast) and gorgeous Maja Design papers from the Ska vi ta en Fika? collection.

I embellished with flowers, a couple of diecuts, some sprays and a few Nuvo Jewel Drops, in addition to some lace behind everything and micro beads on the flowers.

I added my Norsk Stempelblad AS sentiment on the inside with an ink that matched the color of the patterned paper, and used some green ink for the edge stamping. The other inside has plenty of room for a personal message.

The back of my card. I used some more flowers to embellish, and another Norsk Stempelblad AS text from the same stamp set as the one I used on the inside.

These are all the colors I used for my image.

Et høyt hurra {Mo’s Dream Team}

Hei og hopp! I dag har jeg et enkelt bursdagskort å dele, laget for Dream Team-bloggen til Mo Manning.

Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing a simple birthday card, made for Mo Manning’s Dream Team blog.

Jeg har fargelagt motivet Life is like a balloon på kortet mitt. Det er egentlig et sett med to motiver, det andre er av en hund (Bronte) som er festet i tre ballonger og flyr avgårde, men jeg har bare brukt jenta i dag. Som vanlig er hun fargelagt med Copics på X-Press It, og hun er satt på en A2 base (5 1/2 x 4 1/4″) av Bazzill Marshmallow kartong.

I colored Life is like a balloon, which happens to be a set with two images. The other image is a dog (Bronte) tied to three balloons flying away, but I’ve only used the girl today. As usual she’s colored with Copics on X-Press It and then added to an A2 card base made from Bazzill Marshmallow cardstock. 

Jeg har laget en cluster i det øvre høyre hjørnet med en kakeserviett fra Doodlebug Design og rester fra Summer Crush-kolleksjonen til Maja Design stanset ut med dies fra Rayher. Jeg har satt på noen dråper Jewel Drops i fargene Rosewater og Sea Breeze, de passet perfekt i fargene.

I made a cluster in the top right corner using a Doodlebug Design doily and scraps of patterned paper from the Summer Crush collection by Maja Design, diecut using a couple of Rayher dies. I added a few Jewel Drops in the Rosewater and Sea Breeze colors, they matched my colors perfectly. 

Inni ballongen har jeg stemplet en tekst fra bursdag inch-platen til Norsk Stempelblad AS, dekket det hele med et generøst strøk Wink of Stella og så et tykt lag med Glossy Accents.

I stamped a Norsk Stempelblad AS birthday sentiment inside my balloon and added a generous amount of Wink of Stella, followed by a thick layer of Glossy Accents. 

Jeg avslutter med fargene jeg har brukt på motivet. Jeg har også brukt B20 og BG71, som jeg har laget selv.

I leave you with the colors I’ve used for my image. I also used B20 and BG72, which are colors I’ve made myself. 

Juleklem fra meg til deg {Mo Manning}

Hei og hopp. I dag har jeg et veldig enkelt julekort laget for Dream Team-bloggen til Mo Manning, med verdens skjønneste snømann, nemlig Giggling Snowman!!! Jeg har som vanlig fargelagt ham med Copics, og han er klippet ut og satt på en veldig enkel base.

Kortet er i A2-størrelse (4 1/4 x 5 1/2″) og er laget av Bazzill Marshmallow. Jeg har brukt en embossingfolder fra We R Memory Keepers til å lage struktureffekten på bakgrunnen, stanset ut en liten snøbakke med en die fra Lawn Fawn og stemplet to stempler fra en av de nye stempelplatene til Norsk Stempelblad AS med Papertrey Ink Enchanted Evening blekk. Til slutt har jeg pyntet veldig enkelt med Nuvo Jewel Drops i fargen Sea Breeze her og der.

Jeg avslutter med fargene jeg har brukt. Ikke voldsomt mange, men jeg har faktisk brukt hele seks farger til snøen (de seks første).

En liten tag {Mo’s Dream Team}{Ett trykk}

Wednesday’s come around again, which means it’s time for another Mo Manning creation from me. This time I’ve made a tag, very similar to the one I shared just last week. This time I’ve used teals and greens, Justin’s Ice Cream, and put my image on the right side of the tag instead of the left.

I used Mermaid Lagoon, Cracked Pistachio and Twisted Citron Distress Inks on my background, and colored the cutie wth Copics, before fussy cutting him and gluing him to the tag.

Here’s a photo of both tags together.

En sommerlig tag {Ett trykk}{Mo Manning}

Det er onsdag, og det betyr at det er min tur til å inspirere på DT-bloggen til Mo Manning. I augustnummeret av Ett trykk hadde vi fokus på tager, og en av mine tager til artikkelen var denne. Fargene roper vel sommer, og tagen i seg selv er veldig enkel. Et fargelagt motiv og en svertet bakgrunn er nesten det hele.

It’s Wednesday, which means it’s my turn to inpire on Mo Manning’s Dream Team blog. In the August issue of the Norwegian cardmaking magazine Ett trykk we focused on tags, and this one was one of mine. The colors screm summer, and the tag itself is very simple. A colored image and an ink blended background is pretty much it. 


Jeg startet med en bit akvarettpapir og Distress Ink i fargene Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick og Abandoned Coral.

I started with a piece of watercolor cardstock and Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick, and Abandoned Coral Distress inks.


Jeg svertet blekket i striper oppover panelet mitt med glidende overganger, med den mørkeste fargen nederst, og jobbet meg oppover.

I ink blended my inks in horizontal stripes on my cardstock using smooth transitions, starting with the darkest color at the bottom working my way up the cardstock going lighter and lighter. 


Da jeg var fornøyd med svertingen min sprutet jeg noen dråper vann over panelet. Distress Ink reagerer med vann, og vannet bleker fargen der dråpene treffer. Jeg lot vannet virke noen sekunder før jeg tørket det av med et tørkepapir.

When I was happy with my blending I added a few drops of water across my panel. Distress inks react with water, and the colors fade where the droplets hit the paper. I let the water sit for a few seconds before blotting it off with a paper towel. 


Jeg fargela et motiv (Bubbles Girl fra Mo Manning) og skjærte det ut med kniv. Kutteflaten farget jeg med en svart penn for at ikke den hvite kjernen på arket skulle vises.

I colored an image (Mo Manning’s Bubbles Girl) and fussy cut her using a sharp craft knife, coloring the cut edges of the paper with a black marker so the white core of the paper couldn’t be seen from the sides. 


Jeg stemplet en tekst fra Norsk Stempelblad AS som jeg embosset i hvitt. Jeg stemplet også noen hjerter som jeg embosset med et embossingpulver med hologrameffekt. Det vises ikke veldig godt på bildet, men når man vender på tagen glitrer hjertene i lyset.

I stamped a Norsk Stempelblad AS sentiment and embosset it in white. I also stamped and embossed a few hearts using a hologram effect embossing powder. It’s hard to tell in the photo, but when you pick up the tag, the light catches the hearts and they really sparkle.


Jeg limte på motivet på tagen med flytende lim. For å være sikker på å få lim på hele baksiden brukte jeg en pensel for å påføre limet.

I added my image to my tag using liquid glue. I applied it with a brush to make sure I had the entire back surface of the image covered.


Tagen ferdig. Jeg festet en malje øverst på tagen og trædde i et par tråder twine i farger som matchet tagen min. Og det var det hele.

My complete tag. I added an eyelet at the top and threaded the hole with some twine in colors matching my tag. And that’s it.

Juleklem {Mo’s Dream Team}

Another Wednesday, which means another contribution for Mo Manning’s Dream Team from me. This time I’ve used Ragged Winnie on this very simple Christmas card.

I colored my image with Copics and sprinkled Chunky White embossing powder on top.

I added some scraps of patterned paper from Pion Design, stamped a Norsk Stempelblad AS sentiment and used a bit of foam behind my main panel for dimension.

I embellished very simply with a diecut snowflake with covered in Distress glitter. And that’s it.
