Card created by…

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 :)

Creative kick

I’ve been quite creative these three last days. I started on wednesday when I decided to fix some rubber stamps I bought around easter. I bought some unmountanted rubber stamp and I needed some foam-thing to stick on the back, so I can use it on a acryllick block. I fixed one on wednesday, some yesterday and the rest today.

I wanted to test out one of the stamps. You press it on paper and then you paint it inside. I’ve never done that before, I thought it would be fun to give it a try. I ended up making a whole card.

I must say I’m happy about how it turned out. It’s not bad for a first atempt. The text says ‘a little sailor on life’s big ocean’, a quote I got from mum.

Sitting there watching the card, I started to make a poem up in my head. I wrote down what I thought of and suddenly I had a whole poem! It took me like three minutes to make it. It has never happened this fast before. It’s in Norwegian, but I’ve tried my best to translate it. It wont sound as nice, since I lost the rhymeing when I translated it though.

The sailor

You are a small sailor
on life’s vast oceans.
You’ll meet good moments
but also challenges and requirements.

With wisdom and love
on the great journey,
you are ready to meet
the big, big world.

Remember that your aunt,
always will be near you.
And be part of the voyage
in all kinds of weathers

This poem is going to be inside the card. And the card is for my nephew. My sister and brother in-law won’t baptize him, but in stead they will  have a ‘name-ceremony’ to celebrate him and his name.

As a gift for Emil, I’ve bought this tiny blue backpack (12 liters) and one even cuter lunchbox. It’s a Postman Pat lunchbox. I used to love Postman Pat! He was so cool. I remember when I was 6, I got a greeting on my birthday on the radio from grandma and grandpa. And I got to hear the Postman Pat theme-song! I was in heaven. Now I hope to pass on some Postman Pat love to my nephew!

Back to the card. I would love to have a rubber stamp that says made by Kjersti or something in that alley. When I give away card I want them and others who sees it to know it’s handmade by me. I’ve been thinking of buying such a rubber stamp for ages now, but never gotten around to it. Not until today!

madebystamp I went on ebay and found a really cute rubber stamp made by loongchai74. It’s 3.8 cm x 3.8 cm.  This stamp is soooo cute. I love it already, even though I don’t got it yet.  I hope it will be sent soon! It was cheap too! I’m very happy about this new stamp. I’m gonna use it on every card I’m making.

I’m gonna go use one of the other stamps now. The bbq-chef stamp. It fits my dad so I’m gonna make him an early birthday card. His birthday is in late October… it’s no harm to be finsihed early, is it? ;)
