February challenge

Hi, everyone, I hope you are ready for a new Challenge here at StampARTic. We have started a new year, and todays challenge is: Do something new.

I don`t mean you have to invent something that hasn`t been done before, just do something that is new to YOU. Maybe a new way of coloring, a new folding technique, a new style, a kind of box you haven`t tried before, make a new kind of decoration for your project etc. Just mention in your post what you did that was new to you. And if you need some more inspiration, we have a lot of tutorials here at StampARTic:)

We are lucky to have Pysseldags as a sponsor for this challenge.
Please take a look here for our Pysseldags article, and DT creations.
DT had a lot of fun playing with products and techniques we haven`t tried before.
 Here is what we have created.

I have colored the image on green cardstock, and that is new to me. I have used my Prisma Colors a lot on white and craft cardstock, but I have never before colored on a green background. The shape of the card is also new to me.
I have used image from Stempelglede, papers from Pion Design and texts from Kreativ Hobby and
North Star Stamps.

I have never tried out making this card before so for this challenge I just had to do it ;)
(Don't know the name of it either ;)


I´ve never made a pop-up card before so this is was a big challenge for me. It was a lot of hard of work, so many images to color. I´ve used Maja Designs paper and here new stamps from the Vintage Winter Collection 2011. It´s so beautiful and so easy stamps to color. The "santa-stamps" and the sentiment are also from Maja Design.


I´ve tried out Metal Tape Art, a technique that´s brand new for me and I just looved it!So FUN!  This I´ll definately do much more of :). ( And the text is not referring to January 1970 as my husband first   thought, it´s my dad turning 70 :) )


I made a basket I never have tried before. I fond the tutorial at Lena Katrine's lovely blog. You can find her tutorial HER. I used the lovely paper from Pion design - Från Mitt Hjärta II for my basket.


I´ve done a card in a completely new size to me. I usually only do 15x15 cm and maybee 10x10 or 10x15.
This one is 20x11,5 cm.
The stamp is a digi from Tiddly Inks and the papers are from OA - Farmhouse.


I made a babycarriage with shabby chic style. I haven't made babycarriages before but it has been on my mind for a long time.



I have for long time wanted to made a tea dispenser.
This tea dispenser tutorial I found
at Mariannes blog


I have made a pop up card.
I have seen them in blogland and just loved how they look, so this was a perfect chance for me to try out something new and something that i have wanted to try out for a long time.

I had so much fun making this pop up card and it really wasnt that hard either.

This is how it lookes at first...

and when you pull the tag the image pops up like this...


I have made this book card for the first time. Actually it has been in my mind almost a one year and now it was a good time to make it:)  I don`t ever have tried any different folding technique ( my cards are always really "everyday" so I had so much fun to make this one.

I hope you will join our "do something new" challenge.
Please use Mr Linky to participate, deadline for this challenge is midnight February 8th.
Good luck with your new projects:)

Bernadette said...

Thanks for the inspirations!
The name of the new card that Malin was unsure of, is a Tri Shutter card and it has been popping up often lately. Recently I've enjoyed trying this. Then KaiserCraft, Australia used it in their latest magazine also. However Malin's version was superb!
Have a great year everyone...
