Thank You - Christmas Mini Card

Hi everyone I had some time to craft today, and so I made a little mini-card that I'll enter into all of these challenges:

Paper Play - Let it Snow
Simon Says Challenge - Let it snow
Stampin for the Weekend - Winter
Stamp Something - Thanks

Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge - Put a little pink on your project
So here's my card:

I used a snowflake-stamp from a clearstamp-set I bought yesterday, at my local Panduro-store. The set is this one:

It's called Clear Stamps Snowflakes, or, here in Norway, Clear Stamp Snøfnugg. i stamped it in three different distressink-colors (Spun Sugar, Tumbled Glass and Shabby Shutters). I also used a sentiment from Hero Arts' Essential Messages set. I stamped that using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink.

My current papercrafting obsessions...

Today I wanted to do a little different post on my blog. I wanted to tell you about some of my current "papercrafting obsessions" =) Here are some of the things I'm loving right now:

I have a good amount of Lawn Fawn sets on my wishlist! I know there will be a new release-week soon (when they show sneak peeks on the Lawn Fawn blog, and have giveaways and designteam-samples as well), so I'm looking forward to seeing that too =) The top five sets from Lawn Fawn currently on my wishlist are:

My Cute StampsI just discovered this company like yesterday, and I must say I really like the style of their stamps! I'm looking around to see where it would be the cheapest for me to get this:
which is the Cheer Up set, cause I really LOVE that one, and I want it soo bad! I LOVE those faces that you can put on the cloud =)

Spellbinders Nestabilities
I'm currently loving these dies, which are the top two on my Spellbinders wishlist:

And I love this set too, that I already have and LOVE to use =)

I've gotten really into coloring my stamped images with Promarkers now. I love the look of these markers, which are just like Copics, but less expensive. I'm slowly building up my collection of colors, and I have about 38 of them now. If you're thinking about starting coloring with markers like Copic or Promarkers, I would highly recommend the Promarkers, if you live somewhere where they're widely available =)

I already had some stamps from Motivet, when I recently purchased this ADORABLE stamp:

This stamp is called Bunny Hug, and I soo love this image! And it can work for so many occasions (thank you, birthday, congratulations etc =)

And the last category on my current obsessions-list today is:

Hero Arts' stamps have been a favorite for me for a good while now. I love their wide range of different designs, and the quality of the stamps, woodmounted, clingmounted or clear, is just awesome! Besides having great stamps, they also have a lovely blog we can visit to get inspiration and see exciting news. And there's also a Flickr-group for Hero Arts' fans, where there's a great community and lots of inspiration to find =) Here are the top five on my current wishlist for Hero Arts stamps:

I guess that was everything I wanted to share today. Thanks for stopping by my blog =)

Thank you card with cute bunnies

Hi everyone!

Today I'm sharing a card I made to enter into the following challenge:ABC Challenge Blog - G is for glitter (use glitter)

Here's the card I made. I used stickles to add the glitter-lines on the sentiment-piece:

I also filmed the process of making the card (except for adding the glitter, I forgot to record that =)

I also wanted to give you the link to the stamp I used, so that you can purchase it too if you like it =) I used the "Bunny hug" stamp from Motivet on this card.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
