Shoppingtips- January 2012

Hi everybody out there!

Done any shopping lately? The StampARTic team members surely have and here are our shopping tips for you this month. Hope you´ll find something you like :).


I found something that can be just perfect  to make
Valentine/love cards with....
Basic Grey newest collections


My tip is the cute "Tilda hugs Koala".  She was specially made for Shopbron in Australia. 
This is a limited offer and a special collection-Tilda so hurry up. You will find her here


I fell in love in two different paper collections.
First Lily Bee´s Head over Heals:

Then October Afternoons Farmhouse:

I found them both at Scrap-Perras.


I just have to show Pion Designs new lovely collection From My Heart II!! They come in "12 and "6. Perfect for both cards and LOs =)


Writing this, I´m surveilling my mailbox closely, waiting for these gorgeous dies from Memorybox. Just love their delicacy and that there is  a "filled" matching butterfly and heart to combine with.

These I ordered from Pysseltagen.


Just like Malin I love PionDesign papers and I have to buy these lovely papers called Minnenas Atelje

And of course a new die for me from Tim Holt.

We have a new ARTst TEAMMEMBER

During Christmas we have had a DT call for the ARTsy team, and we hereby proudly announce the first new member of the ARTsy team...

Vi har hatt en DT call i juleferien, og vi ønsker med dette å presentere vårt første nye medlem på ARTsy teamet...

Velkommen til Mikaela
bedre kjent som Totoro med bloggen
Pysselterapi & Livsglädje

Dette sier Mikaela om seg selv...

Mikaela is my name but I usually call myself Totoro in different forums. I love art, mixed media, polymer clay and metal. My husband calls my art dark, and I don’t have a better word for it. I love when the art tells a story or has a meaning. So today I want to show you something I’m really trying to learn. Self-knowledge. I prefer that word before Self- esteem because Self-knowledge is all about knowing who you are and what you are able to accomplish. I love to mix the deeper thoughts of artjournaling with cardmaking.

So when I’m not making art I’m taking care of my two beautiful children, 2 and 4 years old. They do inspire my messy art and the love to mix colors and paint.

Mikaela är mitt namn, men jag brukar kalla mig Totoro i olika forum. Jag älskar konst, mixed media, fimolera och metall. Min man kallar min konst mörkt, och jag har inget annat bättre ord för det. Jag älskar när konsten berättar en historia eller har en mening. Så idag vill jag visa er något som jag verkligen försöker att lära sig.självkänsla. Jag föredrar det ordet före självförtroende eftersom självkänsla handlar om att veta vem jag är och vad jag kan åstadkomma. Jag älskar att blanda djupare tankar från artjournaling tillsammans med korttillverkning.

Så när jag inte gör konst tar jag hand om mina två vackra barn, 2 och 4 år gamla. De inspirerar mig till kladdigare konst och väcker önskan att blanda färger och måla.

Her er noen av kunstverkene hennes...

Bunny - is almost the same as last but where I used the gloss medium throu a stensil instead to stamp in it. The lovely girl is painted with copics. Then I did a little skull of polymer clay. (a beautiful art must have skulls in my opinion).

Bloom - I painted the background with distress ink and stamps inked with black. After that I spread a layer of gloss medium and stamped with a lagre background stamp. Then I highlighted the structure with metallic wax. The flower is one part of an emboss metal tape flower,some parts from an old plastic flower and a little face of polymer clay.

Bee - This is a play with water-based crayons and markers.

We look forward to see a lot of her artworks, and are SO happy to have her on our team! Vi gleder oss til mange kunstverk fra henne fremover, og vi er utrolig glad for å ha henne på vårt team!

Velkommen Mikaela / Welcome Mikaela
