A quickie..

This is a little sample of a card I made for a special occasion..
Don´t want to show you the whole card just yet.

I just had to have this little cutie Tilda from Magnolias newest collection.
Love how she is perfect for Edwin as Robin Hood.
Coloured with distress inks this time.

Just as Tilda I got married in a light golden weddingdress.

Just love a man in green tights, don´t you?

Have a fab monday night!

Some cards...

Had a terrible week and I haven´t posted any cards for a week or two.
I have been crafting a little, very little.

The card is really easy to make and you save a lot of paper.
Love how it rocks from side to side.

I used my dies from Nellie Snellen to cut this flowershape.
I colored with distress inks.

Hope you all will have a great week!

Clean and simple at Carisma cardz, DT card

This week Charisma cardz have Stamp Fairy as sponsor.
I choose to work with 2 really cute images.
I couldn´t choose one..

I used one of my Nellie Snellen dies to cut 2 holes in the envelope I got from Panduro.
Then it was just to make a card.
I kept it simple and clean I think.

I colored with Pro markers this time.
Some stickles and a bow. That´s it.

Hope you´ll join us at Charisma cardz this week.

Clean and simple

Today I had a day off, visiting my sons school. He hasn´t started yet but in august it´s time. We are having a hard time deciding were we want him to go. When I came home I had some time to kill in the craftingroom. Lucky me!

I printed all 4 of my new Saturated canary images yesterday so it was pro marker-time.
Today I finished 2 cards and I´m having a hard time deciding witch one to enter in the clean and simple challenge.

I think it´ll be..... the blue one.
Yes, the blue one. It´s the cleanest one. For me the red one is simple and clean to, but I´m going with the blue. I love her hair, her eyes and the die from Spellbinders is just great.
The little metal sign says Kompis - Friend.
You can find the challenge here.

See you soon!

Saturated Canary

If you visit my blog once in a while, you must know about my lov for little Tilda and the Magnoliastamps. But, the last couple of weeks I have seen theese cute little girls with the most beautiful eyes decorating cards. I visited the Saturated Canary blog this weekend and I bought 4 images that I hope all will be done this week. I love digis becouse I can have them in any size. I can´t print them on my favorit paper. That´s why I have to color with my pro markers. No distress inks yet. I have to solve this.
But, her she is. My first SC card!

I made this to my childrens cusin Sofia who loves to make cards, stamp and color with her own Pro markers. She got them for christmas. It´s her birthday this week. 10 years old!

I love easelcards and I have decorated this one with lots of flowers so it was hard to close.
The frame is made from a flower that a cut in 4. It´s a Magnolia dohickey die.

On the base I used my Nellie Snellen dies and Fia is Sofias nickname.
The cute corner is also from Nellie Snellen and the swirl from Magnolia.
I went crazy with the roses this time but I like how it turned out with all the colors and sizes. I put some stickles on them as well.

This time I chose the papers first and then colored the image. I´m not really happy with the green colors I have becouse they do not blend well. But I really like the result anyway.

I saw that they are looking for members for their DT on SC. Thought I would give it a go.
Wish me luck!

Monochromatic in pink

It was hard to go to bed yesterdag because I was inspired and couldn´t stop crafting down in my craftingroom. I saw this fantastic card on a blogsite but I don´t remember were. It was an easlecard and I just love making them. I altered it a bit and this is what came out of it. I just love this one.

I used a mini Tilda from Magnolia and this one has tiny ribbons in her hair.
The dies are from Nellie snellen.
The big shape is handcut. Wish I had a big die for these shapes...

It not often I use my pro markers anymore.
The distess inks are so wonderful to work with.
I think it takes more time but the result is so much better.

And today the arrived!
No kids at home, no husband... I went down to the craftroom ;)
This is my card for this week. I used 4 different stamps.
Hope you´ll like them.

I masked to get the flowers in the back. Mårten with the car and Moa and Max you can find here. The flowerpot you can find here and the text here.
I colored with Pro Markers.

I´m so terrible at decorationg the inside but I tried. Here you can see that I´ve stamped the white flower with the textstamp. The die is from Nellie snellen.

Something new. New stamps, new fold

Today I´m going to show you a fold that I love. I´ve used one of our new stamps from the new collection from Magnolia. I colored this one with promarkers as I stamped it with distress inks. I intended to color it with distress inks but I had some bad luck when I was thinking ;) Decided to use a color that I hardly ever use. Yellow-orange.

I used my MS circlecutter, and I love how I can make this big circles in a second. From 4 inch to 12 inch circles.

I love the glittery papers and I used Magnolias doohickey dies to cut out flowers and swirls.
The other dies are from Nellie Snellen.
Here you can see the fold (I hope) a little better.
Love how it stands on its own.


Theese stamps are from a set my doughter bought for her self the other day. Love the rose and I´m going to use it a lot.

Today has been another day at the stable for Theresia. She helped out at a lokal jumping contest. Usually we are the stables 3 times a week. Love it so!
Therefore I was inspired to do this card for Fussy and fancy friday challenges.

Both stamps are fom Magnolia and I love this hores "Brunte".
Boyh dies are fom Magnolia as well. Tag and cat.  

The little horse in the corner is also made with a Magnolia stamp. I stamped it on "shrinkplastic", coloure it and when you warm it it shrinks aprox 7 times its size.

Have a nice weekend!

Feeling blue

It has been a couple of wet days here in Sweden and the river passing our house is getting too close. The last couple of years it has been really cold, -20 degrees celcius, in nov-feb. This year it hasn´t been cold more than a few days. A friend of mine found leaves of this little cute flower the other day. Blåsippa we call it in Sweden. They usually show in april.

This little Tilda from the new You´re so sweet collection is a christmasgift to Theresia, my doughter. We have inked her up lots of times allready. Love her!
Im slowly getting there with the coloring with the distress inks.
I even distressed the flowers on this card.

I used a white and a blue cardstock. I love the contrasts so I picked a dark blue.
The sketch is from TOMIC´s new challenge, (blue, white and glitter). I have used patterned papers from Magnolia and Maja design. The frame is made with flowers made by Magnolias doohickey dies and glitterpaper in white. Love the little heart that the ribbon is fasten with. And as the TOMIC challenge is glitter I put some extra bling on there.

I´m usually really bad at decorating the inside of the cards. This time I think it turned out really good. Love the stars on the Magnolia paper.

This little stamp I got from a store in Gothenburg near my sisters house. This store was the first scrapbookingstore in Sweeden. I think the stamp is from Reprint...
Love to stamp it on the back of the card, signing it with my name and blogadress.
It says "Handmade by".
