Hi! I have such a cool card to show you today! I made this for my boyfriend on our anniversery last week and I found it at the Lily of the Valley Inspiration Blog. It's a sort of slider card so when you open it up there is a new image popping out. I really hope you had the chance to order the Whiff of Joy Secret Fall Stamp Kit. This in one of the images in it. I just really love this one. It's so cute. I was over at Lenes blog to pick up some inspiration to arrange the flowers. Some I have made my self but most of them are form Wild Orchids Craft. The papers are from My Minds Eye.

It´s time for a new challenge at Whiff of Joy Challenges and this time there is a sketch for you to follow! I had so much fun making this card and this is my favorite stamp from the new release! I love how easy it is to use if and how nice it goes with everything. This is the sketch to follow this time. I have swapped my flowers to the left with a row of pennants from Whiff of Joy and instead of a swirl I did a swirl look-a-like by attaching some ribbon with a staple around my sentiment. The sentiment is also from the Whiff of Joy english stamp Collection "You are my Hero". The text says "Be the hero in your own life story". The papers are all from the My Minds Collection "Fine and dandy" and I really like the colours. I matched it up with some similar coloured cardstock from Kaiser Craft in sea blue, brown and ivory.

Hi everyone! I know it´s really early (or just really late) for everyone at home but I am posting my second card for the Copics Markers Summer Challenge in Norway. I am still a beginner when it comes to the markers, I have only been collection for 3 months. Now I am on the airport going Thailand for 2 weeks holiday with my boyfriend and than it´s back to Uni. Anyway, since I would normally use Whiff of Joy Images I thought I would use a Magnolia this time. My card was made on a craft night the other day. I have masked Tilda on the top of some letters from Kaisers Craft. I guess everyone can see what is says?? SUMMER! I did one mistake when I was masking Tilda so she is not really sitting that well on the letters, but I was happy enough.
On Copic Marker Norway we had a sketch to follow and we had to have the colour yellow in our stamp. My text stamp is from Whiff of Joy and my flowers are from Wild Orchids Craft.

This week we are getting ready to move out of our apartment and move in to a friend for a little while. And next week we are going on winterholiday to Thailand. It´s going to be sweet! But before any of that is happening we have to have a bloghop to promote our new stamps! The July release is so cute! And it goes so well for boys card where you are not sure what other stamp to use. On my card for this bloghop I have used an old sketch of Katharina, number #48.
On my card I have used "Racer Henry" and also the sentiment collection from Whiff of Joy called "You are my hero". They fit so well to the July release. My papers are from My Minds Eye, and the buttons I got of a friend of mine in a give-away. The cardstock is from Kaiser Craft in the colours black and ivory. I have used these copic colours: N0-N2-N4-N6-E11-E01-E00-E000-E0000-E04-BG70-BG72-BG75-BG78.
Your next stop is Alice!

A new preview card is up for you today! This time I have used Henry the fireman as my stamp. He is just sooo cute. But I didn´t want to colour him in "normal" fireman colours because I am missing a lot of colours in the Copic range. So I did my Fireman in a blue-green colour. To make my card I have used a sketch from Katharinas blog, it´s sketch number #6 under her collection. All my papers are from My Minds Eye. The little stamp sentiment says: "Life is an adventur. Enjoy every moment." The sentiment is also from Whiff of Joy, is a set called: "You are my hero". One of my favorites for the moment. The little brad pearls are from My Minds Eye too.

My lovely dad turned 45 years the 2th June and this is the card I made for him. It did take quite a while to get it done, because I don´t really make boys cards. But I had a look online to find a stamp that would go with my card and I found one over at Mo Manning. My dad loves fishing and his birthday gift was also a magazine subscription on a fishing magazine. So this little fisherman was perfect for the occasion. The letters on my card are from Tim Holtz and so is the little metal medalion on the right hand corner. I have coloured my stamp in copics. The papers was left over from Maja Design Collection, "Life on the Sea".
Inside I printet out a mini fisherman and coloured him in just Warm Greys.

What I love most about this amazing scrapping world is all the inspiration I get from scrapper that has a different style than what I normally scrap in. Just in the Whiff of Joy Team we have so many different styles. That´s why I went over to one of my amazing team mates this time and got some inspiration for the next challenge at Whiff of Joy Challenge. This time is "Stars and Strips". So I have got the inspiration from Alice. I love how her cards are so clean and elegant and that the focus is all on the stamp. Hop over to Alices Blog and see what she had made latley.
This time I have used two products from Whiff of Joy. On of them is my favorite at the moment. The English Text Collection called "You are my Hero". The stamp are just so easy to use, so many nice sentiments, that fit the every occasion.

Hi everyone! Thank you so much for all the great comments I got on my cards lately. I will have a little bloghop later tonight and come a visit you lovely girls back. But one of my latest cards are with the new Secret Fall Stamps Kit! I have another sneak peak for you today! This is with another stamp, and I like to call it together for ever. It goes perfectly as a wedding stamp, anniversery stamp and so on. This card is made to two special someones, but it a long time to it´s handed over so I am leaving the names out. The little sentiment inside my metal frame is also from the stamp kit.
On this card I have also used the beatiful sketch Katharina has provided us with on her blog. You can add your card in the linky under her post right here. As you can see the sketch is easy to find in the card, but I changed the sentiment part with the metal frame from Tim Holtz.
For the little round circle in the right hand corner I have used a little white doily I won in a give-away. I also used striped paper in the back and a little piece going the opposite way to create balance in my card.
This time I have tried to combine the sweet look on my cards with different masculin Tim Holtz effects. On this card I have used a black cardstock, dark patteren papers, Tim Holtz film strip and the silver metal frame.
All of my flowers are from Wild Orchids Craft and in just two colours lilac and white. The little purple crystals are from Kortgleder (norwegian Crafting shop).
All my papers are from My Minds Eye in the "Miss Caroline" collection.
Inside my card I have decorated the same way as the sketch shows, a doily and the same paper.

Hi everyone! I am so excited to show you the card today! Because if is stamps from the Secret Fall Stamp Kit over at Whiff of Joy. The pre-order started yesterday so run in and get your hands on it. If you are wondering why you should preorder have a look at what I picked up over at Katharina:
"Yes!! It’s time for pre-orders of Whiff of Joy’s secret fall stamp kit to start. I often get asked, why pre-orders? Well, these kits only get produced in the numbers of orders placed. Which means, only who pre-orders will get his copy, after this they are gone :) It is a kind of special product for all of you hardcore Whiff of Joy fans, because you will get the stamps for a very good price and they have collector value, because they are limited."
So are you ready to get a sneak peak?? I have used this cute stamp. It´s french Henry picking grapes from a grape tree. The sentiment is also from the Stamp Kit. Up in the left hand corner I have used the pennants from Whiff of Joy.
I did something different inside the card this time. I used the same stamp just so I got a part of the grape tree on the right side. I coloured it in with my Copics in the same colours as the rest of the stamp. See the colours in the end of the post.
This is my card for Copics Marker Norway, where the challenge this time is to make a card colored with Copics.
Grey Fure: W01-W03-W05-W07

The challenge over at Whiff of Joy is really different this time. You have to make a stair step card. It can be any type of stair step card. Just pop over and have a look here. I have used the new stamp of Henry as a policeman this time. I coloured him in in just Warm Grey Copics (W01-W03-W05-W07). I have also used the pennants from Whiff of Joys Metal dies range. Pappa means daddy in norwegian. I have also used some hamp and two charms, a star and a gun. I don´t remember where my papers are from.
Here is my little mini tutorial for you guys today. This one shows you how you can make your pennants in different colours and layer them up like you do one your card. Start by die cutting up on in card stock and on in patteren paper. Than cut off the string like the third photo shows you. Measure it up by placing it over and make two markes, one on each side, indicating where to cut. Cut it off with you scissor and than it´s all done!
I am entering my card into these challenges:
- The Cutie Pie Challenge - One for the boys
- Here comes the boys Challenge - Metal
