Pokemon GO was a major hit this summer (and still is...). And of course, we all got hooked. I just had to make a page with this photo, taken by my sister, showing me, my husband, our girls, my niece.... all completely focused on our phones.
I made the background with Distress Inks and stencils. Trying to choose colors to go with the Pokemons. And also some random stamping.
The Pokemons were printed on white cardstock, and then cut out. The problem was that I wanted to use them all...... By putting them inbetween the layers of papers, I managed to leave none behind...
The letters are from Tim Holtz. I finished the page with some splatters and enamel dots.
I just hade to include the purple "rattata", so I put it in the corner, above the journaling.
It was a fun page to make, and I guess I have to make more with the same topic. Both my girls want Pokemon-pages in their albums.

Birthday card - grey/black + red

I made this card for a wonderful lady who recently turned 50.
I really love this stamp from Dina Wakley, so I decided to use the star as the main focus. (I later discovered that I probably stamped it upside down, but hopefully no one noticed... :-) )
I embossed the star with black embossingpowder, and also used a pencil to outline it. Then I used some water to smudge the pencil lines. A technique I picked up from DeeDee Catrons blog.
The papers are from Dixi Craft, and I used a thin layer of white gesso before I started stamping.
The small strips of text are from a 7 Dots Studio collection.
I love the combination of grey/black and red, so the chipboard is dyed with red Distress Stain. And finally some red enamel dots together with black splatters. And another favourite: the metal hearts from Finnabair.

Since I was really happy with how this card turned out, I made another one straight away. Same techniques, but different stamps and embellishments.
This time I used stamps from Joy! Crafts.
The sentiment is a die from Nellie Snellen.
I also used some strips of paper from an old book before I covered it with gesso.
Some splatters of white gesso mixed with water.
Have a nice day!

2 of a kind

This is a page I made some time ago, The photos show my daughter and her cousin. Those two blondes are so similar, both in appearance and personality....
The papers are from American Crafts. I really liked the light background, so I decided not to do any mixed media background, but rather just use all the gorgeous papers.
The flowers are stamps and dies from Joy! Crafts, and I used a pen (Wink of Stella) to add some gold glitter.
The title is an alphabet fra Kaboks.
A also used dies from Sizzix to make some wildflowers, and combined them with the other flowers.
'2 of a kind' is printed on a piece of self-adhesive canvas from Dylusions.
I also cut out some of the butterflies from the patterned papers.
Now it's back to clean up my craft room......
