X-mas Surprise BlogCandy!

[.. This is a sticky post ~ for new posts, please scroll on down! ..]
 
This is a very special kind of blogcandy as I usually make them last under a month ~ this time around I'm going to treat one of you sweet crafters to such a HUGE Christmas surprise that I'm only opening up one door on the image below each or every other week, for a sneaky peak of the blogcandy, up until the 1st. of December when all will be revealed :) 

[.. This image will be updated with sneakpeaks for each door! ..]

Exited yet??? IF you are on the fence on wether to enter or not, know my candies are always yummy, just take a look at previous ones here :) 
I can promise there will be gorgeous stamps and charms, ribbons and bling, designer papers and other yummy treats ♥

Best of all, I've already got scrapping goodies worth about 250,- NOK, wich equals to about $32. But for every person that enters I will actually throw in something extra to sweeten the pot! Could be a clearstamp or just a ribbon, or some prima flowers, but my scraproom is full ..I tend to hoard.. some might say it looks like a whole shops inventory! So I imagine the winner will end up very happy come christmas time :)


This BlogCandy is open to all my fellow crafters ~ I will ship worldwide ~ and I would sure appreciate it if you were a follower of my blog, but it's not necessary to win though ♥

However, I would be very happy if you could please spread the word by mentioning this candy either with a link and/or photo of it on your own blog (sidebar is fine) or if you have no blog ~ another place, like a pin, instagram, facebook, twitter etc. 

Again, this is not necessary to do to win ~ only if you want to make the blogcandy grow, then it would help if more people knew about it ♥

But please ~ NO 'in it for the Candy only' ~ non-crafty people are not allowed. I will also remove any spam comments or double entries

Now then, make your entry with a comment on this post saying the magic words 'Yes please!' or something similar. And on December 1st. I will put all your names in an imaginary hat and pick a lucky winner who will be getting a craftylicious package christmas ♥

https://www.etsy.com/shop/Tindaloo

And there is a Bonus candy to win as well! I'll pick 5 random people from the comments to get a free digistamp (your choice!) from my etsy shoppe ~ and you'll never know when theese will get picked! I will not pick them all at once or on december 1st. Could be tomorrow, next week or a month from now.. And all are eligible to win this, so you could win more than once if you're lucky! Needless to say, the sooner you enter, the sooner you may win something ♥ ♥ ♥

#1. ...... who will it be? ......
#2. ...... who will it be? ......
#3. ...... who will it be? ......
#4. ...... who will it be? ......
#5. ...... maybe it's you? ....

Good Luck!

Did you win? I'll update this post with each winner! Please email me at tindaloo at hotmail dot com with your addresses if you see your name here, and do remember to mention you're a BlogCandy winner in the topic so it won't get missed ♥ NB: Any unclaimed goodies will be forfeited by Dec.25th. so it's a good deadline, as after all, it's during the holidays :)

Congrats with an itty bitty bow!


Når man er så heldig å ha så mange flotte dies og embossingfoldere som jeg har, så kan det å lage et kort bli veldig lett og veldig moro! Den bittelille sløyfa ble det 'lille ekstra' som kortet trengte siden det ikke var noe motiv på.

Mitt noe vintage og shabby chic gratulasjons kort er DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #137. hvor Lemon Shortbread er vår sponsor denne gangen, jeg har ikke brukt et motiv fra dem på dette kortet, siden printeren min var tom for blekk, men oi så lekre digistempler de har! ♥ Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være :)

... Så du forresten at jeg har en ny bloggcandy? X-mas Surprise BlogCandy!

http://creativefingerschallengeblog.blogspot.no/

..Big Hugs & Congrats on your day..

It's very fun and easy to create cards when you are lucky enough to have a ton of pretty dies and embossing folders. And with the lack of motif, the itty bitty bow was the something extra I really needed to make my card look fabulous :) 

My somewhat vintage looking and shabby chic card today is my DT inspiration for this fortnights challenge #137. over at Creative Fingers. We have an amazing sponsor also, Lemon Shortbread. I haven't used a motif on my card, as my printer is out of ink, but I absolutely adore their images! ♥ As always it is an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations ♥ 

... And btw. did you see my new blogcandy? X-mas Surprise BlogCandy!

♪ Princess Leia's Theme ♫

 
Hører du også automatisk Star Wars musikk i bakgrunnen når du ser på denne siden? :) Jeg satt og nynnet for meg selv mens jeg malte dette nydelige fan-art motivet fra vår flotte sponsor, Oddball Art Stamps by Lizzy Love ♥  Mitt DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #136. Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, så velkommen skal du være!

Har planer om å bruke dette arket som en detalj på en større art journaling side, men har ikke helt klart for meg hvordan den skal bli enda ~ kansje en galakse og dødstjernen, og en silhouette av Darth Vader? Hmmm...

http://creativefingerschallengeblog.blogspot.no/


Do you also hear the sound of Star Wars in the background while looking at this page? :) I found myself contstantly humming on the music from the movies while painting this absolutely gorgeous Leia tribute image ♥ 



I actually have big plans for using this piece on a bigger art journaling page, perhaps with a galaxy background and the Death star, and maybe a silhouette of Darth Vader? Hmm.. I'll have to do some more thinking on that :) 

My Princess Leia page was made as DT inspiration for this fortnights challenge #136. at Creative Fingers. The fabulous digistamp motif come from our generous sponsor Oddball Art Stamps by Lizzy Love, and as always it is an 'Anything goes theme'. You are more than welcome to join with your creations ♥

Fairy Cookies & Tea

 
Det har ikke vært så mange bloggposter fra meg i sommer.. Slitt litt vel mye med helsa, så det har sjeldent vært tid for kreativitet på scrapperommet. Har isteden fått ryddet litt opp på pc'n, og det er sååå mye rot i mappene mine der! 
Fant faktisk flere kort som bare var tatt bilder av og ikke lagt ut på bloggen, og jeg legger for det meste ut alt jeg lager :)

Mine to sommerlige kort har begge fått hovedmotiv fra The Paper Shelter. Vanligvis foretrekker jeg å fargelegge dem selv, men TPS har allerede fargelagt disse perfekt ♥ Digistemplene kommer både i lineart og ferdig fargelagte motiver. Tilogmed digitale ark eller ferdig komponert følger med på de aller fleste, så man kan gjøre det så enkelt man bare vil! Jeg har kun printet ut motivene, og fargekoordinert med ark fra Panduro. Liker at det går en 'rød tråd' gjennom alt jeg lager, og håper de som mottar kortene setter pris på det :)


"Calories should not be counted... they should be enjoyed!"

"Everything feels so much better with a cup of Tea"

There has not been many blogposts from me over the summer as my health has not been very good of late. Not much craftiness going on in my scraproom.. But instead I've been able to do some much needed re-organizing and cleaning up in my computer folders. Wich is where I found several un-edited cards I had not blogged yet. And I blog pretty much all the things I create, so here are two summery cards with motifs from The Paper Shelter.


http://thepapershelter.com/They have lots and lots of sweet digistamp sets ~ with both linearts and colored images. and although I prefer to do the coloring myself, TPS motifs are already so perfectly colored ♥
I love to make the kind of cards where there is a theme all the way, inside and out, even the back. And I like to think the recipients do appriciate the extra effort :)
