Two (s)tags and a Card (MIM #41)

I had to make more stuff with the Essential Glue Pad.
(It's the new Papertrey Ink's MIM #41 that have got me hooked on this technique!)
That little glue pad is my favorite at the moment! So, here's the result...

The heavy chipboard was treated this way:
1. Snowflakes in two sizes stamped with Fresh Snow Ink.
2. Sides inked with Fresh Snow Ink.
3. Stag stamped with Tuxedo Black (Memento).
4. Spruce stamped with Vintage Touch Chai Ink
5. Birds stamped with Tuxedo Black (Memento).
6. Small snowflake stamped with the Essential Glue Pad.
7. Some glue from the Essential Glue Pad added to the bottom of the chipboards.
8. Glitter added! (Optional: Stickles and Snow Powder.)

Stag Tag


Cardstock, Button, Ribbon, Red and WhiteTwine, Stickles (Ranger), Snow Powder.

PTI stamps: LLH - Holiday, Tag its #8, In the Meadow, Mat stack #2, BB: Sheet Music

My Christmas Button Flowers/Mina julknappsblommor

THE Love Of My Life took these pics when I was working (he happened to be at home) - just to make me happy! Awww! He knows how fun it's for me to show you what I've been working on! Here it is, my new card. He even took photos of some details and tilted the card a bit - to make you see the sparkles. Isn't he the sweetest man ever?!
Oh, and I'll enter this one in the PTI's MIM #41!
MITT livs kärlek tog dessa bilder medan jag jobbade idag (han råkade vara hemma) och bara för att jag skulle bli glad! Awww! Han vet hur kul det är för mig att visa er vad jag har gjort! Här är det, mitt nya julkort! Han tog t.o.m. detaljbilder och vinklade kortet lite - för att det ska synas hur det glittrar. Är inte han den gulligaste mannen någonsin?!
(Jag är med och tävlar med denna i PTI's MIM #41!)

Bow tying 101/Grundkurs i att knyta rosetter

YEP, I am crafting... but now there is no light at all - and frankly, it hasn't been for quite awhile. It's November and it's the darkest it ever gets in Sweden ( -no snow yet).
Until I get daylight and can take pictures... and that won't happen tomorrow, anyhow... I can't show you what I've done...
Well, until then I'll show you the best tutorial ever: How to make bows! Dawn McVey's Bow tying 101. Enjoy!

JÄPP, jag gör julkort... men eftersom det är svårt att ta kort mitt i mörkaste natten så får ni vänta tills längre fram i veckan - tills jag har möjlighet att ta ett kort i dagsljus... 
Men det finns ju annat jag kan visa er. Världens bästa rosettknytnings-tutorial, t.ex. 
Här kommer Dawn McVeys instruktioner! (De fungerar!)

MIM #39 Background Stamping/Bakgrundstämpling

MY contribution to PTI's "Make It Monday" challenge. This week it's all about making your own custom background paper, using your stamps.
Sorry about the light, it's so hard to take photos in November in Sweden! (Even in the middle of the day!) I guess I'll need one of those light boxes...
I hope you'll enjoy it anyway!

MITT bidrag till PTIs "Make It Monday". Den här veckan handlar det om att göra sin egen bakgrund genom att använda dina stämplar. Hoppas du gillar resultatet!

Glossy accents makes the little snowman shiny...

Supply list:
Stamps used: Tag-its #8, Love Lives Here - Holiday (both PTI).
Dies: Limited layers 1.75'', Pine Boughs
MS snowflake border punch
Stickles, copics, inks, snow powder, glossy accents.

Oh, it snowed on the snowflake! That's so odd! :D
