I'm back again, girls :)
This time I'll try to inspire you to join our
Terrific Tilda Anything Goes

Fashionista Challenge

to our voted winner

I have made a summercard for this challenge - and what can give you the good summerfeeling more than strawberries???
I have used DPs from MajaDesign to go with the strawberry Tilda. Tilda is coloured with DistressInks.
I used white Gesso and DistressInk OldPaper on the paperedges. Most of the panels are sewn together.
I made the banner with the summergreeting myself.
The ribbon has a strawberrycharm attached - unfortunately I couldn't get it the right way in the picture, but it IS a strawberry.
The insides and backside are simple decorated, with the same papers as on the front

Now, I hope I have given you a little inspiration to head over to Fashionista Challenge and join our new challenge :)

I'll send my Summer-Tilda card to these challenges:
Totally Tilda #72 - More than One Fold

Good morning, girls.
I'll come with 3 blogpostings today, so I better start early :)

We have a new challenge at My Besties today, a quite easy challenge this week:
Add something Metal or Metallic on your Card.
Not very much metal on my card, but I think the key and the heart suited so well on this one.
It's made as a Joy-Fold-Card, with designpapers from MajaDesign.
The image, Messy Bessy, from Sherry Baldyn, is coloured with Pro- and FlexMarkers. The dots on her clothes have got tiny LiquidPearls in WhiteOpal.
The DP-edges are inked with DistressInk WalnutStain. I also put on a few white halfbeads.
To make the paperswirl, the corner and the tags I used dies from My Favourite Things, Spellbinders and Magnolia.

Here's the inside - or should I say insideS, as the JoyFoldCard open up in two steps...
The stamped greeting is from Staz.
Pop over to the My Besties Challenge Blog now, to find out what the rest of the DT-girls have made, and to see the prize you can win - get lots and lots of inspiration there (you can even find some freebie-images, if you look around a little), and join us!

A Card For You - On Your Birthday

 This weekend I have coloured - I've coloured a lot!
I have got lots of My Besties digis, and practises during the weekend showed me that these images works best with markers - at least for me. So, I have "dusted off" my Pro- and FlexMarkers, and had a jolly good time :)
For this card I used papers from MajaDesign, Vintage Spring and Vintage Summer collections - I think they work well together.
I used both punches and dies and DistressInk (WalnutStain and OldPaper) on the DPs.
To decorate the card I used flowers and leaves, a feather, cheesecloth, some lace and halfpearls.
Around the image I used white- and goldcoloured embossingpowder.
-oh, and some glitter on the flowers, and liquidpearls (OpalWhite) on the "dots" on the clothes.

The inside, clean and simple, with a stamped birthdaygreeting from Staz:

I have to decorate all sides of the cards I make. It doesn't feel finished until the back is covered too - even only with a matching DP, as on this one:

I'll send the card to these challenges:
Kreative Verden - Skisse (sketch)
Joanna Sheen - Girls, girls, Girls
Passion For ProMarkers - Anything Goes
Scrappin All Over - Fargeutfordring Rosa, Grønn og hvit (colourchallenge pink, green, white)

Tilda blowing hearts

Good morning everyone!
Today I have a birthdaycard with a Magnoliaimage to show you.
This time I've used Tilda blowing hearts, and again it's coloured with DistressMarkers and -reinkers.
DPs are also from Magnolia.
I used Bazzill Kraftcardstock as base for the card.
I used lots of laces, cheesecloth, ribbon (the text "Gratulerer" is norwegian for Congratulations), both flowers and butterflies (Martha Stewart punches) are glittered. Some of the butterflies are glued to the swirled strings on the flowers, to make them "fly" over the card.
I folded two ribbonpieces and attached them with brads.

MagnoliaDP, Martha Stewart Vintage Floral PATP-set, MS Monarch Butterfly Large and Small punches.
Text is from North Star Stamps.
Edges (Outside too) are inked with DistressInk WalnutStain.

I'll send this birthdaycard to the following challenges:

Seeing Red at Ooh La La

Hi again.
We're Seeing Red over at Ooh La La Challenge Blog today,
and we want you to join us.
This challenge will end Sunday 26. so there's plenty of time to find your red stash :)
I have made a little "giftbagcard", with a tag/ card with a greeting stamped on inside.
The images and papers are from the Yesterdays Memories CD. You can find it in the craft shop, if you'd like your own copy of it.
I used the same image on the front of the bag and the insidecard - aren't these ladies elegant!
I tried not to "overdo" it in decorations, I felt the white, red and gold was kind of enough in itself.
Here comes many more pictures showing the bag and card from different angles. Hope you'll like it:

Now, head over to Ooh La La Challenge Blog to see the Red creations from the rest of the girls, be inspired and join the challenge!

And don't forget to join the bloghop mentioned in the stickypost on top :)

White Bookcard for Confirmation

Hi fellow crafters - I´m alive :)
Tonight I have a quite pictureheavy post, so I´ll try not to write too much.
Some time ago I was asked to make a bookcard for a girls confirmation. The picture, I guess, is from the christening, and was given me to be used on the front of the book. So I decided to pick up the colors from the clothes in the picture, mainly white, to use on the book. As you can see I let myself quite loose in laces, ribbons, pearls, charms, glitter and gems, and lots of butterflies. I had a super terrific time making this!
Inside the book I managed to sneak in a little pink - it´s for a girl! A little touch of pink is needed for a girl!
Well, enough talking - here´s the rest of the bookcard:


I´ll enter the bookcard into these challenges:
Totally Gorjuss #183 - Bingo (Lace, Ribbon, Flowers)
Kort o Mania #85 - Alt er Lov

Magnolia Tag

Here's another tag I've made.
Isn't this Magnoliaimage cuuute?
It's coloured with distressink. Around the image I've put on little dots made with LiquidPearls.
The "wings" on the tag are made with Martha Stewarts Floral Wine Deep Edge Punch.
I love putting on lots and lots of embellishments.
Here I've used laces, ribbons, cheesecloth, charm, flower, several die-cuts and pearlstrings.
The banner (almost hidden underneath the velvet ribbon-bow) is homemade. I also made the shakerbox with the sentiment inside.

I bought those glassbeads for naildecorating. It didn't work out as planned at all! They wouldn't stick to the nail, there were teeny-tiny, tiny glassbeads all over the place! 
One of them got stuck underneath my thumbfingernail, and wouldn't get loose. After a couple of weeks the finger started turning green underneath the nail, and I realized that I couldn't get it out by myself. I had to see the doctor... He had to remove most of the nail, but couldn't find the glassbead - of course he couldn't! One alone of those pearls is invisible!
The finger is much better now, though I still don't have my left thumbfingernail. And without that nail, I try to keep the other 9 nails shorter too, so it doesn't show too much...
So - the glassbeads are now used in cardmaking, the fingernails short and without any polish - can't wait for it to grow back again, and to try out the purple powderglitter for nails :)
Well, enough about that.

I'll send this tag to these challenges:
Midweek Magnolias #59 - Lovely Lace
Kort o Mania #85 - Alt er Lov/ Anything Goes
NSHK #73 - Flagg og/eller Vimpler/ Flag or Banners
Inky Chicks #3 - Shabby Chic
Totally Gorjuss #181 - Ribbons and Pearls


Good Luck Bags

God morning. I have two little projects to show you here.
A while ago two girls started their practice in the tower where I work.
 I made these little bags for their final theoretical tests - a little god-luck-bag.
Inside the bags I put some candy, then I put on two different Tildatags.
The images are coloured with distressink. Around the images I squeezed out teenytiny drops of liquidpearls.
I used different laces, ribbons and diecuts to decorate the tags. The paperedges are inked with DistressInk Walnut Stain.

The first tag is kept in most bluetones.
The sentiment on the punched out circle means Good Luck.

The second bag is more in pinktones. Good Luck on this one too.

I'll enter these challenges:
lovely hÄnglar or sweet Magnolia #168 - Anything Goes
 Midweek Magnolias #59 - Lovely Lace
Stampin' for the Weekend - Die cuts and/or Punches
Sweet Stampin' Challenge - Anything But Birthday
TTCRD - Anything Goes
Party Time Tuesdays #118 - Anything Goes
