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 :) 
 


[.. Image will be updated w. sneakpeaks each time I open a 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 ♥

Waiting behind theese doors there is a huge pot of scrapping goodies that's worth about 250,- new ever-growing total is currently: 450,- NOK. Wich equals to about $32 $55 !!!
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 for christmas ♥

... Main Prize winner to be revealed here ...

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 ♥ ♥ ♥

Bonus Candy Winners:

Take time to smell the Coffee...

 
Den ekstremt kaffe-tørste uglen på shaker-kortet er mitt DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #141. med vår generøse sponsor som denne gang er Wink Wink Ink. Teamet tar en pause til over nyåret, så dette vil bli den siste utfordringen for i år. Som vanlig kommer det en takke-bloggpost for sponsorer og følgere til jul med inspirasjon fra designteamet.

De nydelige rosene og cupcakes motivene er freebies som du finner på bloggen til Wink Wink Ink ♥ Og de kommer også i en ferdig fargelagt versjon for kjappe kort! Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være :)

Vintage Father's Day

 
Denne gangen har vi to flotte sponsorer ~ M.Medel Illustrations & WeAre3 ~ for Creative Fingers sin utfordring #139. For mitt DT bidrag har jeg brukt et kjempeflott digitalt mønsterark sett 'Fairy mail - Vintage' fra WeAre3 som jeg printet ut og brukte på mitt farsdagskort. Slike digitale sett er helt fantastisk fordi du kan printe så mange som du bare vil, i akkurat den størrelsen du trenger ~ som er veldig kjekt for meg fordi jeg har en tendens til å ikke bruke papirer jeg kjøper, med mindre jeg har flere eller det ikke var spesielt fint eller noe.. fordi vel.. da er det jo liksom brukt opp!!! ;) 
Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være :) 

... Jeg har forresten en 'X-mas Surprise BlogCandy' med veldig masse flott scrappestæsj som du kan prøve å vinne :)

We have two great sponsors for this fortnights challenge #139. at Creative Fingers ~ M.Medel Illustrations & WeAre3
I have kept my DT card in warm rustic colors to go with the masculine theme of father's day (wich is in november here in Norway) using the fabulous digital paper kit 'Fairy Mail - Vintage' from We Are 3 ♥

https://www.etsy.com/au/shop/MMedelIllustrations https://www.etsy.com/au/shop/WeAre3

It's  awesome to have such kits in your stash if you're like me and just hoard great designer papers because u can't bare to 'use them up'... You can print theese out over and over again, on any type of paper that fits in your printer, and in the exact size you need! :)
As always we have an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations! ♥

The cool Rust Embossing on the Tim Holtz heart die is a custom Rust mix recipe with embossing powder and technique by Rangers Wendy Vecchi, that I have tried to replicate.

..But I didn't have the exact fine detail gold that she had, and it didn't look quite right to me.. 

Good enough, yes, and very fun to do! But it wasn't as fabulous grungy and rusty as Wendy's, wich ofcourse was what I aimed for! Also, I must admit that I am just lousy at understanding how to convert measurements.. so there might be a hiccup there ;)
So If anyone has a better recipe with european measurements than my attempt here, please do let me know in the comments! :)

You can find the actual (and far better) recipe here on her blog: Studio 490 Wendy Vecchis Rust Recipies with embossing powders and inkpads!

... And btw. did you know I have a 'X-mas Surprise BlogCandy' going on right now? Have a go and you could win some awesome goodies!
