Mitt første Copics kort!:))

Ja her kommer den lille hemmeligheten om hva jeg har drevet med i det siste:)) Jeg har kjøpt meg Copics tusjer! De kom i posten på onsdag, og etter det har jeg øvd og øvd;) Dette er et av motivene jeg har øvd på, fra Mo's Digital Pencil. Jeg er jo helt i begynnerfasen, så ikke se sååå nøye på fargeleggingen :p. Men det blir nok bedre etterhvert:) Jeg måtte iallefall prøve å lage et kort også, og tenkte det passet til utfordringen hos Sukkersøtt, der de vil se hva jeg har gjort på i sommer. Og det blir jo Copics det:)
Er utrolig herlige disse motivene!:)) Blir så glad!
Mønsterarkene er fra Prima, og blomstene er også fra Prima og WOC. Bladene er punchet ut med en Martha Stewart punch. Og sommerfuglen er malt med Crackle Paint-Picket Fence. Jeg har også påført litt Stickles-Star Dust på skjørtet.
Tusen takk for at du besøker bloggen min, og ha en flott lørdag!:)

Edwin med kikkert & tips om signatur med Watermarks:)

Her kommer et nytt kort med søte Edwin fra Sommerkitet til Magnolia. Kanskje står han og venter på Tilda som kommer med båten?:)
Han er fargelagt med Distress Ink, Reinkers. Mye i Weathered Wood.
Nå har jeg også skrevet litt mer om hvordan jeg fargelegger, og ulike tips m.m. som ligger oppe på siden min, under banneren: Distress Ink), og du finner det også HER.
Papirene er fra Magnolia+litt bølgepapp. Ellers er kantene som vanlig svertet med Walnut Stain og sydd med symaskin.
Du ser kanskje at jeg har fått meg en fin signatur på fotoet mitt. Den kjøpte jeg hos Whimsy Stamps. I norske kroner kostet det ca 18,-. Og det var  veldig enkelt å sette på bildet. Jeg bruker jo Photoscape til å lage rammen rundt bildet (Cali 09). Photoscape laster du gratis ned fra nettet. Det fine er at jeg også kunne sette på signaturen min i Photoscape. Det fulgte med en super tutorial med watermarken:) Så har du lurt på å få en lignende signatur er iallefall dette en lettvint løsning. Det tok ca et døgn før jeg fikk mailen med Watermark'et (Vannmerke), etter bestillingen.

Ønsker deg en fin fredagsettermiddag!! Og tusen takk for at du besøker bloggen min!:)

Lady Tilda

Here is an image I coloured two nights ago, when meeting up with Janne and Audhild. It is so fun to sit together colouring (and talking:)) Okay I only coloured two images the whole evening....:)
And put it all together today. All papers are from Magnolia, so gorgeous. I have focused on the colour blue when making this card, cause it fits a new challenge;)
As usual I have used my Distresses.
The text is also from Magnolia. The photo corner is a QK. And I have added Crackle Accents to the flower again. The edges are inked with Walnut Stain, and sewed. I have added Stickles-Star Dust to the flowers, and some places on Tilda. The butterfly is coloured with Crackle Paint-Picket Fence. And the whole card is sprayed with Glimmer Mist.
I wish to enter these two challenges with this card:

Especially for you:)

An other friend of mine, Audhild celebrated her birthday yesterday! So I made her this card:) I have used Peony Tilda from the Wedding Collection, Magnolia. I think she fits birthday cards nicely aswell:)
If you look closely at the photo under, you can see that I have added Crackle Accents to the flower, I like the crackle effect it gives. I have bought mine at Unik Hobby. And as usual I have coloured with Distress Inks. I have some secret plans about trying to use something different to colour the images with;) But I have to try it first to see if it is something for me... Anyway, the dress is in Victorian Velvet, and I have used Walnut Stain for the dark shadows on it.
All the papers are from Melissa Frances, from the same collection that I used on the Mermaid-card. Love the soft tones on her papers!
I have used the DooHickey border die again! It is so beautiful, and I thougth it matched the lace on her dress:) All flowers are from Magnolia.

Have a wonderful day, and thank you for visiting my blog!!

Mermaid Tilda:)

Here I have made a card for a lovely friend of mine, Janne. She celebrated her birthday some days ago.
I have used the sweet Mermaid image from Magnolia's summer stamp kit. The "Especially for you"-text is also from Magnolia.
The image is coloured with Distress Ink, reinkers. I have used tattered rose and walnut stain on Tilda's mermaid outfit.
As you may see, I have added a lot of Stickles-Star Dust on her fin. The spots on the edge are made with a stamp from Stempelglede. And I have used the colour Weathered Wood. Also the same colour on the shadows around Tilda. I have used Stickles on the flowers, but here the colour Platinum. I have added Crackle Accents on the bubbles. The whole card is sprayed with Glimmer Mist.
The opening for the tag is made with a Color box ink pad, and then cut out with scissors. And the text on the tag is also from Stempelglede. I got the idea for the shells from my DT friend Kim. They are embossed with embossing powder-clear, then inked with walnut stain. I have used them as "leaves" behind the flowers.
I have also made this card for some challenges; first I have used the lovely sketch by Deb at Cute Card Thursday. And I have then tried to make a vintage looking card which is the theme at Just Magnolia this week. And I also qualify for the first challenge at Magical Monday, where the theme is glitter.

Alvekort med Papiliostempel

Endelig har jeg fått laget et kort med stempelet som jeg vant fra Papilio Stamps!:) Tusen takk Malin, motivet er helt nyydelig!! Og så med de flotte vingene, fulle av glitter!
Jeg har fargelagt alven med Distress Ink, reinkers. Mye i victorian velvet. På vingene har jeg brukt Weathered Wood, Victorian Velvet og Pumice Stone. Ja og masse Stickles- Star Dust. I tillegg er kortet dynket med Glimmer Mist-Pearl.
Jeg har stemplet med Archival Ink-Jet Black, på 300g akvarellpapir.
Hjørnestempelet er fra Stempelglede, og stemplet med Archival Ink-Coffee.
Under ser du et nærbilde av den vakre nøkkelen som jeg har fått av min venn Camilla. Og jeg har gjort som henne, limt den oppå blomstene:)
Papirene er fra Prima, og så fine med sommerfugler på. Blomstene er fra WOC og Hobbyhimmelen. Bladene og fotohjørnene er stanset ut med QK. Bokstavklistremerkene er fra Making Memories. Jeg har malt med Crackle Paint-Picket Fence bak, og over med -Clear. Kantene er svertet med Walnut Stain og sydd med symaskin.
Ser du på bildene at solen kom hit i dag:)) Det var så herlig å kunne ta på seg shorts og t-skjorte og være ute i dag, uten å fryse!:)
Jeg ønsker deg en flott ettermiddag, og takk for at du besøker bloggen min!

Tilda is hangin' there too:)

Here comes my second card with the new Stampkit stamps from Magnolia. Here I have masked together three stamps, and coloured the little scene with Distress Ink, Reinkers. Mainly in blue and white colours. The flowers are also in white-blue colours.
The image is a little big, but behind that I have used four different patterned papers from Magnolia, and one corrugated cardboard. I have used Tim Holtz distressing tool on the edges, and I have also embossed some of the edges with UTEE and embossing powder-clear. I have added walnut stain, and in the end sewed the papers together with a sewing machine. I have added Stickles-Platinum around the edges on the image. The whole card is sprayed with Glimmer Mist. I have added some Stickles-Star Dust to the waves on the image, and Crackle Accents on the sails, and on Tilda's cap.
You can also view the card in my Magnolia Blog.
Thank you so much for visiting, and I wish you a lovely day!

Sailor Edwin in trouble?:)

Here I have made a card with some of the new Magnolia stamps! I have masked together two images from the kit, and coloured them with Distress Ink, Reinkers. The text is also from the kit.
All the papers are from Magnolia. And if you look closely you can see that I have used real shells on the card:) And I really love the ship-charm, perfect for a sailor-card.
I would like to enter Magnolia Down Under Challenge this week, as their theme is seasons, and this is SUMMER:)

Et nytt bryllupskort!:)

Dere er sikkert kjempeleie av bryllupskort nå;) Men jeg har nå likevel et til.. Motivet fra Magnolia er så fint, og enkelt å fargelegge. Swirlene rundt kantene er også fra Magnolia, samt papirene. Teksten er fra Stempelglede.
Jeg har påført Stickles-Star Dust på kjolen og Crackle Accents på blomstene. Også her har jeg brukt Doo Hickeys dien.
Nå holder jeg på med fargelegging av nye supersøte stempler fra Sommer-kit'et!:) Syns Edwin i matrosdress er en riktig skjønning, så kommer nok et kort med han snart.
Bryllupskortet finner du også i Magnoliabloggen.
Tusen takk for at du besøker bloggen min, og ha en fin kveld!

Flower Girl Tilda

Her kommer endelig et nytt kort i bloggen:) Søte Tilda fra Magnolia, som blomsterjente i et bryllup.
Jeg har fargelagt kjolen hennes først i Weathered Wood, og så et strøk med Victorian Velvet.
Teksten er fra Stempelglede. Og de nydelige papirene er fra Magnolia, så fine i blått og beige. Kantene er svertet med Walnut Stain, og sydd med symaskin.
Jeg har satt 3D-puter på en del papir, så kortet kommer litt ut. Og om du ser riktig nøye etter ser du at jeg har fått meg Doo Hickeys-blonde-die'en fra Magnolia. Lekker, og lett å bruke på min Revolution maskin.
I dag kom også sommerkitet fra Magnolia i posten.
Men med nesten 200,- i toll!! Herlighet, er det bare meg som er irritert på den lave tollsatsen i Norge!?!

Ta forresten en titt i Magnoliabloggen min og se om du vant Sommerutfordringen;) Jeg har fremdeles et par premier liggende her hjemme...
Tusen takk for at du besøker bloggen min, og ha en fin sommer videre!

Friendship is a breathing rose...

I sat up long in the nighthours to finish this card yesterday! I wanted to make a special card. And when I first started it was difficult to stop. I only had a break before sewing all the papers together, because my husband had to watch the final two episodes of "24", and needed silence (my sewing machine is a bit noisy!). But after that I was back in business!;)
I think this Tilda from Magnolia (also) is so beautiful.
If you look closely you can see that I have added Crackle Accents and Stickles-Star Dust to the rose. Around the image I have used some stamps from Stempelglede. Both the image, text and swirls/spots are stamped with Archival Ink-Coffee. I have coloured with Distress Ink, reinkers. Mostly Victorian Velvet:)
All the papers are from Melissa Frances. The roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I have inked them a little with walnut stain, and added some Stickles-Star Dust on them.
The tag is from Panduro and the ribbons are from Papirloftet.
I said that this was a special card, that is bacause it is not made like I use to make cards, just have a look under:
The beautiful "Rose-text" is also from Stempelglede. I have put all the Spellbinder circles on addhesive foam, to lift them up. The largest papers measures 14x14 cm, and the smaller measueres 10x10 cm. It was quite fun to try something new:) Under you can see the back. My personal stamp from Scrapmagasinet, and the round swirly stamp is from Stempelglede.
This blog is now going to have a small holiday. I will not be back before the end of my Summer Challenge -15. July, in my Magnolia blog. Where I challenge you to make a Magnolia-card after this sketch:
I have already recived so many fantastic cards. They are all so beautiful that I can see that it is almost impossibel for me to pick a winner. But I have asked my seventeen year old brother to help me, so he is going to be the judge. It will be fun to see which card that he likes the best!:)
The prize will be Magnolia stamps and some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers.

Have you heard about the Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge blog? They are now starting up with a wonderful CANDY!!

Oh, have you seen the Summerkit stamp from Magnolia?
Here is a teaser:)

I wish you all a beautiful summer!

A Sarah Kay card:)

Here comes a Sarah Kay card I made yesterday. I just love her:) Picking apples, maybe for her apple-pie?
The papers are from Maja Design. I have inked and sewed the edges. I have also ripped away a part of the paper, and then turned it around and stapled it on again.
The image is coloured with Distress Ink, reinkers. And I have used walnut stain on the paperedges. The flowers are stamps from Stempelglede. I have stamped them with archival ink-coffee, on a Maja Design Paper, and punched them out with Retro Flower punch-large and medium. Then I have bended the petals a little around a brush. The rondells and butterflies are from Unik Hobby. I have also used some post stamps and a splatterstamp around the image. The leaves are made with a QK-die.
I will enter two challenges with this card:
Cute Card Thursday ~ Let's Get Fruity
Nordsalten Hobbyklubb ~ Lag et sommerkort med tema frukt eller bær.
Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful day!:)

Papilio Challenge ~ You could be the winner!

Since I lately had so much luck winning a Papilio stamp, actually my new favourite from the Fairy Collection (!!), I thought I would try my luck winning some more Papilio stamps;)
Here is the stamp I won:
The new stamps from Malin T. Petterson are all so sweet, and you can see them in her shop. But now for the contest, you have to enter with a card with a Papilio stamp as the main motif, and the deadline is 7. July.
Here is my card:
Here I have used an older Papilio stamp, it is really cute:) The sentiment and swirls/spots are from Stempelglede's Wedding Collection stamps. This time I haven't inked the edges of the papers, but instead I have used sand paper to make an older look. Or more romantic? The papers are from Melissa Frances. The butterfly is a Spellbinder die. The crown is a rub on from Melissa Frances. I was looking through some other things, when the rub on just fell on my crafting table, so I just had to use it! It was destiny;)
The image is coloured with Distress Ink, reinkers. I have put Crackle Paint-Picket Fence on the flowers and butterfly. And then some Stickles-Star Dust. You can also find some tulle, licquid pearls, pearls and a lace on the card.
Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful Sunday!

Travel Tilda og en liten sommerutfordring i Magnoliabloggen:)

Merker jeg er litt i feriemodus nå, blir ikke lagt ut fullt så mange kort.. Men så holder jeg jo også på med noen hemmelige prosjekter til neste Magnolia Ink;)
Dette kortet laget jeg til forrige Magnolia Ink, og siden det ikke kom med i bladet, viser jeg det her:)
Jeg har maskert sammen en rekke stempler, som du sikkert ser:) Og så har jeg skiltet ved siden av.
Nå kopierer jeg bare materiallisten jeg sendte med kortet:
"Travel Tilda"
Stamps: Traveler Lugagge, Traveler Tilda, Bee's, Lazy Summer flowers, Loving Wishes (text), road sign.
Paper/Cardstock: Magnolia.
Embellishments: paper flowers from Papirloftet and Wild Orchid Crafts, ribbon and pearls supplied by magnolia, brads from Papirloftet.
Coloring: Distress Ink.
Ink: Archival Ink (Jet Black, Coffee).
Other: The images are masked together, all paper edges are sewed and inked with Distress Ink- Walnut Stain. I have added Stickles-Star Dust to the flowers and the bee's, and Crackle Accents on her purse. The whole card is sprayed with Glimmer Mist-Pearl. The leaves are punched out with a Martha Stewart leaf punch.
Jeg laget også en skisse til kortet, eller omvendt:)
Og jeg tenkte at jeg kunne ha en liten sommerutfordring til dere, om noen har lyst til å prøve seg på skissen?
Her kommer den:
Lager du et kort etter skissen vil jeg veldig gjerne vise det i Magnoliabloggen min:) Jeg har også en (eller to..) liten premie på lur! Så det er bare å sette i gang;) Bruk gjerne et Magnoliamotiv. Jeg setter fristen til torsdag 15. juli.
Legg igjen en kommentar i Magnoliabloggen -under sommerutfordringsposten med link til kortet ditt, eller du kan sende bilde av det på mail til cstoen@hotmail.com.
Da får jeg ut igjen og beise mere på huset!
Tusen takk for at du besøker bloggen min og ha en flott dag!
