Just a quick update.

I got an e-mail from that guy I bought the rubber stamp from today. He had already made the stamp and would send it on monday. The shipping would take about two weeks since he’s located in Malaysia.

This is how the rubber stamp turned out. I’m so, so, so happy about it. It’s very cute! I can’t wait to get it. It will be fun to get this in the mail. Nice to something else than bills for a change! Because bills sucks.

 

I’m having fun with cards again now. It’s been a while.

You would not believe what crossed my mind today. I went to Bikuben today; a crafts and scrapbooking store. I was looking for some rubber stamps. I didn’t find what I was looking for but I found other stamps. When I walked into the two floor store, I knew I wanted a new rubber stamp or two. It was really hard to choose, because they got so many! It’s all sorts of rubber stamps with all kinds of motifs.

I ended up with some christmas rubber stamps. It was a set with nine stamps and they were all so very cute.

I got the urge to make christmas cards! In late August. Believe it or not. It’s a little bit early, don’t you think? On my way from the store I started to count how many cards I’m gonna make this year. I guess around 13 for myself.

When I met mum I said to her: “I’m gonna make you christmas-cards this year too, right?” And she was like “yeah, I guess so”. “Guess so? I have to” I replied. haha.

I have so many ideas in my head regarding christmas-cards, you wouldn’t know! The new rubber stamps opens a whole new world. Last year I didn’t use any rubber stamps at all! This year I will use it a lot and I’m already looking forward to it.

 

I also found this really cute birthday rubber stamp. It just screamed pick me, pick me!

How cute isn’t it? It’s on the top end of the cuteness scale. That right cat looks so satisfied! I can’t wait to use this either. Don’t know anyone who has a birthday until early november though… so it might take a while to get to use it! Oh hey, I have a friend who had her birthday on thursday. We’re not that close that we send each other gifts, but I could send her a card. It would be a bit late though. My dad has his birthday in October, but I’ve already started on his card.

The cards says happy birthday master chef. It’s not done yet. The letters need to be clued on and some adjustments has to be made. I might start over with a new card. Well, it’s gonna be the same but i think i want the chef to be drawn again, since the painting job I didn’t wasn’t the best. Oh, we’ll see. I got lots of time though, his birthday isn’t until 29th of October.

I also bought another set of stamps. It’s like the one I posted in the last post (the boys rubber stamps), but this is girls. Don’t have any pics of it and I’m too lazy to make it. Maybe some oher time…

I’m sitting now with the Panduro Hobby catalogue for 2009/2010 in front of me. I’m gonna have a look and single out all the stuff I want. I’m sure it will be a lot. And then I’m gonna put everything up on my birthday wishlist :)

Making (Christmas)-cards

I went downtown after I was finished at work yesterday. I had to stop by  Panduro  (hobby/craft-shop) to look for some things for my christmas cards. After visiting Bikuben last week, I have to say that Panduro is a little bit of a disappointment. But they are two different stores. Bikuben sells things regarding scrapbooking and cardmaking only, but Panduro has so much other things too.

It was hard to find what I was looking for. Their paper-section is crappy and it doesn’t have 1 /20 of what Bikuben has. Bikuben has a whole floor just with paper! I didn’t find exactly what I was looking for (a white paper), but the paper I got turned out OK in the end.

I also found another paper with drawings on which was cool. And a glue pen which was nothing like I had expected, and not what I wanted at all. But at least it didn’t cost me much. I also bought a painted santaclaus wodden figure to put on cards and at cut-board (size A4) that will prevent me from damage the dining-table! It was much needed!

After I came home, had eaten dinner and been online for a short while, I sat down with at the dining table and made two new cards. I’ve very pleased with them. I must say that a new world has opened after I got the new stuff. That tong I use to die out shapes, letters etc. is fanastic. It opens up so many posibillties. I have to post the new cards, but first I have to take a picture of them and get them on my computer.  I have to do that later.

I have a few things on my wishlist. A few? A lot actually, but a few that are more important than others. Sissel asked me what I wanted for my birthday and I said everything on Bikuben. LOL. A few things that is on top my my list. That is:

  • cat’s eyes ink pads (green and yellow/orange colors)
  • paper cutter. I need to be able to cut straight lines!
  • Dies with christmas-, birthday- and newborn baby-theme.

I finished one more card today. Not 100% satisfied with it, but it’s ok. I’m gonna make at least one more today, maybe two. We’ll see how it goes. It takes time to make one. I don’t decide easily on what to do design-wise.

So far, I got nine cards. I counted and I need 13 cards in total. that means four more cards. I’m gonna ask if mum needs any cards. I will be glad to make her some too.
