A chemist in the making {Mo’s Dream Team}

Hi, and welcome. It’s Wednesday, which means it’s my turn to try to inspire you over at Mo’s Dream Team blog. My card for today features the brand new image Teen Genius. It exists in several versions, mine is a straight haired boy.

I’m planning on giving this card to my nephew. He turns ten in March, and he loves doing experiments, so I think the image is perfect.

I colored my image with Copics and added Glossy Accents to his glasses, the test tube and the laboratory flask.

I cut my panel down slightly and glued it to a topfolding note card made from Papertrey Ink Limeade Ice cardstock. I stamped some bubbles using the same color ink (the bubbles are really confetti from a birthday stamp set from PTI), and a banner with a Norsk Stempeblad AS sentiment on some foam adhesive. Behind the banner I put a tiny bit of a digital piece of paper from Cathy Zielske, and finished off my card with a few Papirdesign enamel dots.


Dandelions {Mo’s Dream Team}

Hi everyone! Wednesday has come around again, which means it’s time for a Mo Manning creation from me. This time I’ve made a very simple card featuring Make a Wish. It’s such a great image, and easy to color, too.

Mo Manning Make a Wish front rettI mirrored my image in Photoshop, so her face is turning right, colored her with Copics, cut her slightly smaller and put her on a card base covered with Maja Design patterned paper.

I also embossed my dandelions with Hologram embossing powder, but it’s kind of hard to see in these photos.

Challenge accepted {Mo’s Dream Team}

Hi, and welcome! I wanted a challenge last week, so I asked a couple of former CMN team mates for ideas. Liz wanted me to color Best Pals, preferably in no lines, and Kjersti wanted to see orange – lots of it. I normally print my no line images at 10 % opacity, but this time it was at 4.5 % when I was done with it in Photoshop. That’s nearly invisible, even in daylight before it’s colored, and a lot more difficult to see at night once you’ve got some color on there. As if that wasn’t enough, the image is very detailed. But I persevered and used my image to cover the entire front of a top fold A2 card, made with some Orange Zest cardstock from Papertrey Ink. I was supposed to have lots of orange, after all.

I wanted to keep the focus on my image without covering it up too much, so I decided on a strip of vellum with an embossed sentiment going across the card. I added a second Norsk Stempelblad AS sentiment, heat embossed it on that Orange Zest cardstock, and popped it up using some foam squares. I added three Papirdesign enamel dots to finish off my card.

Upside down {Mo’s Dream Team}

Hi everyone! Another Wednesday equals another Mo Manning creation around these parts. I went for a very summery image this time. We’ve got plenty of snow, and I’m longing for warmer weather, I wasn’t built for the cold.

I colored Let’s Hang Out with my Coipcs, making the little girl look like my niece. She’s blonde and gets a really nice deep tan as soon as the sun peeks out. And she never sits still, so this image is perfect for her. I diecut my image with a Rayer die, put it on a Papertrey Ink Hibiscus Burst cardbase and added a Norsk Stempelblad AS button, a few butterflies and some bling. And that finishes the card – really simple.

De beste ønsker for julen og det nye året {Mo’s Dream Team}

Hei og hopp! Det er onsdag, og det betyr Mo Manning-inspirasjon her i gården. Jeg har laget årets første julekort! Det ble enkelt, og i favorittkombinasjonen min – blått og brunt.

Jeg har brukt motivet Got the Wreath og fargelagt på X-Press It med Copics. Jeg skjærte ned panelet med motivet mitt til 4 1/4 x 4 1/4″, fant noen mønsterark fra Maja Design i farger som matchet (fra kolleksjonene Home for the Holidays og Vintage Winter), og limte alt på en stående A2 kortbase i Blueberry Sky kartong fra Papertrey Ink.

Jeg har tatt Wink of Stella på sløyfa, men det syns dessverre ikke på disse bildene. Det som syns er at jeg har stemplet et stempel fra B04-platen til Norsk Stempelblad AS med Blueberry Sky blekk. Jeg har til slutt satt på to blå krystaller fra Papirdesign som pynt, og det er hele kortet.

Julen varer helt til påske {Ett trykk}{Mo’s Dream Team}

Ny onsdag betyr ny inspirasjon for Mo Manning. Jeg er ikke helt ferdig med jul ennå, så dagens kort er et julekort. “Helt enkelt – sirkler” var en av oppgavene våre i Ett trykk i desembernummeret.  Jeg printet ut Seasons Greetings ganske liten og fargela med Copics.

Jeg hadde et ark fra Papirdesign som det står god jul på over hele arket, så jeg fant ut at det var genialt å bruke, for da slapp jeg å stempe tekst. Det skulle jo være enkelt, og jo mindre elementer, jo enklere, tenkte jeg. Og det er faktisk hele kortet.

Pakkelapp {Mo’s Dream Team}

Hei og hopp! Det er onsdag, og det betyr EN ting – Mo Manning-prosjekt her i gården. Denne gangen har jeg en enkel pakkelapp, laget med Carrying the Wood.

Hi everyone. It’s Wednesday, which means ONE thing – a new Mo Manning project around here. This time I’ve got a simple gift tag, featuring Carrying the Wood

Som vanlig er motivet fargelagt med Copics. Jeg har stanset det ut med en die fra Rayher og brukt et mønsterark fra Papirdesign bak, også stanset ut med en Rayher-die.

As usual I’ve colored my image with Copics. I used a Rayher die to diecut it into a banner shape, and a larger die from the same die set on a piece of Papirdesign patterned paper. 

Jeg har stemplet en tekst fra Norsk Stempelblad AS med blått blekk fra Papertrey Ink og stanset ut med en 1″ sirkelpunch fra EK Success. I enden satte jeg en malje og blå twine til å knyte fast i pakken. Og det er faktisk det hele.

Using Papertrey Ink Enchanted Evening ink I stamped a Norsk Stempelblad AS sentiment, punching it out with a 1″ circle punch. On one end of the tag I added an eyelet and a string of blue twine to add the tag to the gift. And that’s it.
