Et rammekort

Heisann og hipp hurra for 17.mai! 
Her kommer et rammekort jeg opprinnelig lagde for 
Magnolia's DooHickey magasin vol 25 Bella Notte. 
Og jeg har selvfølgelig brukt MajaDesign ark, 
så da kommer kortet i Majabloggen også.
Her er papir fra Denim & Friends og Little Street Cafe.
I magasinet kommer også en steg for steg 
på hvordan jeg har laget rammen, med mål og div.
Det er litt arbeid, men blir en fin effekt. 
Motiv og dies som jeg har brukt er fra Magnolia.

Ønsker deg en flott dag!

A new Spring card for Magnolia

Hi everyone! 
I am already back with a new card. 
This was really the first of the Sweet Bunny Collection 2020 cards 
I made.
And I have sent it to a lovely friend of mine. 
Who doesn't want a homemade card 
these days :) 
The cute image is from the 
The lovely papers are from MajaDesign,
and the Vintage Spring Basics collection.

My friend asked me what colours I have used 
for this image. And even if the bunny fur
looks almost white, I have used several colours.
Some vintage photo, walnut stain, hickory smoke, pumice stone, 
tattered rose and antique linen.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The ribbons are seem bindings sprayed with water
and curled up, let to dry.

Here I have added the stump, using Magnolia's cute stump die.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog!

A new post for MajaDesign

Hi everyone! 
I hope you all are fine in this unsurreal times. 
The corona virus has hit Norway hard, but also the rest of the world. 
I am thinking of card making friends in Italy and Spain now. 
I hope you are all alright. 
I am isolating myself at home mostly of the time, 
as I am lucky to be able to have a home office. 
For today I have a heart shaped card to show you. 
I did the colouring with Distresses some time ago, 
but have put it together the last days. 
I hope you like it, and know that my heart is with you.

The papers used are from the lovely Little Street Cafe Collection. 

The image and dies used are from Magnolia. 
Also the heart die I have used to make the shape of the card.

I have also used the Maja papers to make the flowers. 
They are cut out with Magnolia dies, 
and put together to a beautiful Maja flower.

Under is a close up of more Maja flowers.

Take care! 

With love,

New post for MajaDesign and Magnolia with a GIVEAWAY!!

Hi everyone!
Here comes some Valentine inspiration for you.
I've used this cute image from the POP UP BOX Valentine.
I would also like to give away two stamps
to one of you who comments on my blog!

The first stamp is HAPPY TILDA (without the cake)

and the other is TILDA AND SMALL CAKE (without the cake)

I am so happy for the comments I get, 
and would love to give something
back to you.

(I am sorry for the word verification 
you have to write to leave a comment.
But it was truly necessary as I 
now have deleted about 100 spam comments!
It makes me so angry!)

For my colouring I use Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers.
As she is holding a key lock, I had to add a key.
So the key to my heart is glued to the beautiful rose 
from Wild Orchid Crafts. 

I have used a Magnolia die from the DooHickey Magazine VOL 5, to make the tassel. 
The papers are from MajaDesign and the Little Street Café collection.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today!
I will randomly draw one winner next Saturday,
on my birthday February the 8th!!
