The text and the "Carte Postale" stamp is from Stempelglede.

MDUC #97 ~ Christmas in May

This week's challenge at MDUC is just perfect for me! I have set as a goal to make at least three Christmas cards every month in 2011, so there will be no panic in December:)
I am useing Hjertebodens Juleblog to reach my goal.
For this card I have coloured Tilda with Amaryllis from Magnolia's Christmas Collection 2010.
And as usual I use Distress Ink, reinkers.
On the flowers I have put some Crackle Accents, and you can also see some Stickles-Star Dust on Tilda's dress.
All the papers are from Maja Design, and the Fika collection. 
Have you heard there are two new collections coming from Maja Design soon??
Exciteing!! If you want to have a sneak peek, you can have a look at the homepage;)
I soo love the sailing-inspired papers!
Behind Tilda I have put some corrugated paper, a heart doily, and cheese cloth.
I have put some Crackle Paint-Picket Fence on the cheese cloth and around the cute image. The ticket is also a stamp from Magnolia.
The papers are inked with Distress Ink-Walnut Stain and sewed with my sewing machine.

Romantic Tilda ♥

Her kommer et konfirmasjonskort til:) Og med Romantic Tilda fra Magnolia sin Wedding Collection 2010.
Hun er fargelagt med Distress Ink, reinkers.
 Papirene er fra Pion Design.
 Og et shakerkort igjen!:) Med en gelantinplate og glitter inni. 
Jeg har nå begynt å bruke en lim som heter Tacky Glue i stede for limpistol. Og det gikk fint til å feste gelantinplaten også. 
 På scallopen har jeg påført små prikker med Liquid Pearls-white. Blomstene og sommerfuglen har fått Stickles-Star Dust på seg.
"Til Konfirmanten" er et stempel fra Stempelglede.
Tusen takk for at du besøker bloggen min,
og tusen takk for de koselige kommentarene dere legger igjen!:)
You make my day!

Tøff og kul :)

Her kommer et konfirmasjonskort jeg fikk bestilling på i forrige uke. Cool Oakley fra Whiff of Joy passer godt til konfirmasjonskortene. Her har jeg også stemplet på noen stempler fra Stempelglede
 Cool Oakley er fargelagt med Distress Ink, mye i fargen Walnut Stain.
 Papirene er fra flere ulike produsenter. Bl.a Muslin fra Basic Grey. Jeg har funnet meg et lite system for maskuline papirer. Dvs. at når jeg oppdager noen som passer bra til guttekort, så legger jeg dem i en skuff. Så da slipper jeg å lete igjennom hele samlingen papirer for å finne noe som passer, når jeg altså skal lage et maskulint kort:)
Jeg kjøpte meg et skuffesystem fra Ikea, som heter Alex. Og der er det altså en skuff merket med "Maskuline papirer":)
Her er også endel Tim Holtz produkter på kortet: Filmstrip Ribbon, Philosophy Tags, Journaling Tickets, Hitch Fasteners, og Hinge Clips.
 Papirene er svertet med Distress Ink pute-Walnut Stain, og sydd med symaskin.
Tuusen takk for at du besøker bloggen min!
Ha en herlig 16. mai!:)

MDUC #96 ~ My favourite things ♥

My favourite things... where do I start??!
Ok, first: Magnolia, I have several favourites, and it also changes too:) But I really love this one:) 
Hello Little Butterfly
Another favourite, this heart charm:) Luckily my husband has many more in his shop;) Here are also roses, and my favourites are in creme and ivory. Another favourite: leaves from a Magnolia die (DooHickey) and the heartborder die. So cute!
Do you think I have a thing for butterflies?:)
My favourite papers are from: MAJA DESIGN ♥
And I love flowers from Prima, espesically the white ones here.
This text is probably the one I uses the most, it is from Magnolia too:)
Can you see the Stickles-Star Dust?! One big favourite!
I love to use tags, and with my favourite sentiments from Stempelglede.
Some more details:) You can see that sewing is a favorite too. And also to ink the edges with Walnut Stain. Have I forgotten the flowerberries from Magnolia, in the colour creme ♥ A big favourite!
A photo of the inside. Look at those lovely papers:) More favourite sentiments from Stempelglede, and a DooHickey tag from Magnolia.
My favourite colouring: DISTRESS INKS ♥
And I love the pearls from KaiserCrafts. Here I have used "Pearls" and "Chino".
Making a book like this is fun, but also timeconsuming. I am very happy when finished:) After I got my Scor Pal the work was much easier, just a tip;)
I also love to use my new thing: Cheesecloth:) Under you see the back of the book, with my personal stamp.
{You can also view this card in my Magnoliablog}
I hope you like it and that I have inspired you to join us this week at Magnolia Down Under Challenge. The rest of my teamies have made some stunning creations for you as always. Pop over and have a look!
Have a wonderful evening:))
