E-kits: Making Handmade Cards

Posted by Princess Eva Angelica On 3:01 PM 0 comments

E-kit fra ulike produsenter har entret arenaen blant stemplere og scrappere over hele verden.
Flere produsenter tilbyr e-kit eller digitale motiver i tillegg til ordinære stempler og varer, men noen aktører har basert seg fullt og helt på den digitale verdnen.

Jorunn og Miia har vært gjeste designere hos Making Handmade Cards i et par månder nå, og vi har fått prøvt ut hvordan E-kits fungerer i praksis, og vi har hatt det morro med å leke oss med lekre pyntepapir, tags, cut outs og annet snadder som kommer med Making Handmade Cards sine E-kit.

E-kits from different producers has entered the world of scrapping and stamping. Manufactures are now offering e-kits or digital images, in addition to ordinary stamps and merchandise, and there are some manufactures that has based their whole line on digital merchandise.

Jorunn and Miia have been guest designers for Making Handmade Cards a couple of months now, and we have been able to give E-kits a try, and we have had some fun playing with pattern papers, tags, cut outs and other goodies that comes with Making Handmade Cards E-kits.




De har i hovedsak fokus på mønsterpapir, men alle kitene vi har mottatt har også inneholdt tilhørende tags, cut outs, og av og til motiv også.

They have mainly pattern papers in their kits, but all the kits we have received have also contained tags, cut outs, and sometimes even images.


E-kit sørger jo for at du alltid har et lager med pynt og papir tilgjengelig, hvis du bare har papir og farge til printeren din.
I tillegg sparer du plass!!! Masse plass.... du kan jo bare skrive ut etter behov, og inntil neste gang du trenger papir eller tilbehør, blir alt lagret på pc`en din...

E-kits make sure you always have access to embellishments, pattern papers, and images, if you only make sure you have papers for your printer and ink! And you save space... Lots of space!!! After downloading the E-kit it stays in your computer, and you just print when needed.....


Du sparer også penger selvsagt!! Et E-kit har du jo for alltid etter at det er lastet ned, en utømmelig kilde til materialer... som du har betalt en liten engangs sum for.

Of course you save money too!!! An E-kit is something you have downloaded for eternity... A never ending source of materials.... that you only paid a little amount of money for, when downloading.


Making Handmade Cards sine E-kit kommer i mange ulike fargenyanser, som også er enkle å kombinere med andre pyntepapirer og papir og tilbehør innenfor E-kitet..

Motiver printer du ut på ønsket papir eller kartong og fargelegger på vanlig måte. Du må undersøke om din printer har blekk som tåler evt. vann eller tusjer... og innenfor de fleste printer merkene får du kjøpt vannfast blekk, hvis du bruker vannbasert fargelegging.
Dette må du undersøke med din blekk- eller printerforhandler.

Making Handmade Cards E-kits comes in many different colors and different shades within colors, and they are very friendly to combine with other pattern papers, and of course pattern papers and embellishments within the kit.

When printing images, use your choice of card stock, and color it in like you normally do. You need to check to see if your printers ink is water proof or is resistant to markers... depending on your choice of coloring. Most brand of printers sell water proof ink, but you need to check with your printer- or ink store to see if that is available for your printer.



Har du lyst til å prøve?
Making Handmade Cards, har et gratis E-kit som alle kan laste ned og prøve...
Du finner også en Video Tutorial på sidene deres, som viser hvordan du rent praktisk laster ned og printer ut, hvis du ønsker en innføring i det....

Lykke til!

Want to give it a try?
Making Handmade Cards have a free E-kit available for downloading on their site...
You`ll also find a Video tutorial on their site, that shows you how to download and to print...

Good Luck~ Have Fun!


Tutorial, decorations with modelling clay

Posted by Princess Eva Angelica On 3:01 PM 0 comments

This white modelling clay is fun to play with. There is many things what you can do with it and so many ways of decorating. It is very easy to handle and it is air-drying. This clay is very light, so you can do even very large decorations and still put them on to the cards.

Tämän massan kanssa työskentely on erittäin mukavaa. Massasta voi tehdä monenlaisia askarteluja ja sitä voi koristella usein eri tavoin. Tätä tuotetta on helppo käsitellä ja se kuivuu ilmassa eli ei tarvitse laittaa uuniin. Lopputuloksena on erittäin kevyitä koristeita. Voit tehdä isojakin juttuja ja silti ne on helppo laittaa kortteihin.



Here is the tools I have used. Took something from my daughters toys :). Roller and some different shaped moulds.

Tässä käyttämäni työvälineet. Kävin vähän tyttäreni lelulaatikolla :). Kaivoin sieltä muovisen kaulimen ja sitten otin keittiöstä erikokoisa piparkakku muotteja.



I rolled piece of the clay and took different shapes from it.

Kaulin palan massaa litteäksi ja otin siitä muoteilla erilaisia kuvioita.



I rolled another piece and stamped some patterns onto the clay.

Kaulin toisen palasen ja painoin siihen leimasimella kuvioita.



Then I took again some shapes from the patterned clay.

Otin jälleen erilaisia muotoja kuvioidusta massasta.



Stamped a text with ink.

Leimasin myös musteen kanssa.



Made holes with tooth pick.

Hammastikulla tein napinreikiä.



Here are the decoration materials I used. Glimmer mists, sand block, inks, rub-ons, stamps, glitter glue, seepia accent, clear accent and crackle paint.

Tässä on materiaaleja joita käytin koristeluun. Suihkutettavia maaleja, hionta palikka, musteita, raaputus kuvia, leimasimia, kimalleliimaa, seepia ja kirkasta koholakkaa ja krakelaus maalia.




Here are some finished cards and one tin I decorated.

Seuraavaksi muutamia kortteja ja yksi purkki minkä koristelin massakoristeilla.










Shoppingparty i April!

Posted by Princess Eva Angelica On 3:01 PM 0 comments

Designteamet har fått vårkänslor i kroppen
och vill ta med er på shoppingparty i April!
Vi har valt ut några produkter som förhöjer
partystämningen på vilken fest som helst.
Häng med på vår shoppingtur och känn dig
välkommen som vår gäst!

The designteam has got springfeelings
in their bodies and wants to take you on a
shoppingparty in April! Vi have chosen some
products that raise the partymood on
any party. Come and join us at the shoppingtour
and you are most welcome as our guest!


Inga detaljer är för små för ett bra party!
Jorunns tips är dessa diecuts från Bosskut. Hon berättar
att hon älskar dessa former eftersom de tillför perfekta
detaljer till kort. Jorunn älskar att kombinera löven,
swirlen med blommor. Tagen är ganska stor och är perfekt
att stämpla ett motiv på. Jorunn köper sina Bosskut



No details are to small for a good party!
Jorunns tip is these shapes from Bosskut. She tells us she
just love these shapes, as they add such perfect details
to cards, love to combine the leaves and swirl with
flowers. The tag is rather big, and is great for stamping
sentiments on. Jorunn buys her Bosskut at
http://www.cropstop.com/


Aija fortsätter partyt genom att tipsa
oss om en läcker tapewriter/dymo
i vårens färg chockrosa! Den här snygga lilla
apparaten hittar du här:


Aijas continues the party by giving us the tip
about this lovely tapewriter in the
colour of the season, chockingpink!
This good looking little thing you
can find here:
Marianne gillar stora partyn och bjuder på ett
kanonbra tips! Hon vill visa ett papper hon är väldigt
förtjust i. Det är ett papper som funkar mycket
bra till både promarkers och copics. Marianne
säger att det är svårt att hitta bra papper till dessa
pennor och ofta är de bästa pappren också de dyraste.
Nu har hon hittat ett papper som är både bra och
billigt, kan ni tänka er! Det är ett papper som är gjort
för skrivare och hon köpte det på "Binders".
Du kan också hitta detta papper eller liknande
i bokhandlar och butiker som säljer datorer.
Mariannes papper är 160 gram och det finns även
att få i 200 gram, ytan är riktigt slät.
120 norska kronor för 250 ark!



Marianne loves big partys and she gives a great
tip! She wants to show us a paper she is really
in fond of. It´s a paper that works very well with
Promarkers and Copics. Marianne says it´s not easy
to find good papers for those markers and often the
best paper is also the most expensive. Now she has
found a paper that is both good and cheap, can you
imagine! This is a paper to use in your printer,
and she bought it at “Binders”. You can also find this,
or similar paper in bookstores, and shops that sell
computers. Mariannes paper is 160 g, you can also
choose 200 g, and the surface is really smooth.
120 nkr for 250 sheets of paper!


Till dessert bjuder Marianne på ett ez-mount hon är
mycket nöjd med. Hon berättar att montera stämplar
är inte precis det hon tycker är det allra roligaste
men med det är ezet blir det mycket enklare!
Det är ett tunt ez-mount som är perfekt till
små stämplar, det spar dessutom plats eftersom
det inte är lika tjockt som det vanliga ezet.
Du kan hitta det på:

For dessert Marianne also serves us a type of ez-mount
she is very pleased with. She tells us that mounting
rubberstamps is not what she enjoyes the most
but with this ez it goes so much easier!
It´s i thin ez-mount that is perfect for small
rubberstamps and it also saves some space as
it is not as thick as the regular ez.
You can find it at:
http://www.papirloftet.no/


Lillemor tycker inte det blir någon riktig
fest utan vackra blommor. Dessa söta
krysantemumblommor har hon köpt här:
http://www.countryscrap.se/


Lillemor don´t think it´s a real party
without beatiful flowers. She has bought
these sweet crysantemum here:
http://www.countryscrap.se/


Carola vill gärna att det svänger lite och då
behöver vi Rock-a blocks! När du lärt dig att
använda detta vill du aldrig använda
någonting annat för att stämpla.


Carola wants it to swing a little and then
we are going to need the rocka-block!
After you learn how to use this blocks you never
going to use anynothing else. Is to be find here:
Here is a video that shows how it works:


Jag hoppas ni haft ett trevligt shoppingparty
här med oss på StampARTic och ni är hjärtligt
välkomna tillbaka nästa gång!

I hope yoy have had a great shoppingparty
with us at StampARTic and you are most
welcome back next time!
