Knowledge is power (Ipsa Scientia Potestas Est)

Wise words from Sir Francis Bacon, there. And so appropriate on a bookmark, don't you think? Oh, these stamps - the awesome, cool and wise-looking owl on the stack of books - I'm in love (Stamps from Magnolia, off course!). Someone's getting books and bookmarks for christmas this year!

Blue, blue blueberries!

I want some blueberries! Don't you just love this cute Tilda-stamp? These are also some of the new stamps for this fall from Magnolia. You can see more ideas with these stamps in Linda Muhren's blog (she's a great card-artist, and fellow DT-member for Magnolia).

I've been asked several times how I do the coloring on my cards. I always forget to answer in my posts, but here it comes:

I mostly use Distress Ink from Ranger. Here's how: Pad the inkpad against an acrylic block, or drip some distress ink refill on it. Then use a paintbrush and water to pick up the colors, and paint, like you're using ordinary watercolors. I also use watercolors sometimes, and Twinkling H2O from LuminArte (twinkling watercolors).

For my Norwegian readers: I've scheduled several classes this fall, most of them are almost fully booked, but there are still a few spots left. You can see more about this on Steffens, Hobby Norge.

Clearing something up...

Ok, autumn is really lovely in colors and everything, but how come I every fall get this terrible colds? Dd have been sick for nearly a week, and when she's finally well enough to send to daycare, then it's my turn. I've spent most of the day tucked in, in bed - with no energy at all.

But I really need to clear something up.. As I told you yesterday, Magnolia is releasing a bunch of wonderful stamps for the fall. I've used several on the card I showed you yesterday. And I'm sharing a new one today.

Which stamps will be in the stampclub-package, and which will be in the ordinary fall collection, I don't know (Allthough, I did hear rumours that Edwin with the Broom are a club-stamp (uhh.. I'm such a tattletale!))

Have a great day! I'm crawling back to bed.
