MDUC #124 ~ Let It Snow

Here comes my card for this weeks challenge at 
Here where I live it is a terrible weather, and it is hopeless to take nice photos of my cards. 
It is nice to sit inside to make card though:) 
I was so happy when Hjerteboden got the mini papers from Pion
but as you can see, I have covered the card so heavily that they don't even show... 
For the Let it Snow-theme, I have thought about the glitter in the shaker card as snow, I have also painted with snow paint on the edges, and added some DooHickey Snowflakes on the card.
The gorgeous ribbon you can spot under is from Tim Holtz. 
I have used some stickers from Making Memories for the letters, God Jul -Merry Christmas.
The pearls are strips from Kaiser Crafts.

The gorgeous image is Halo Tilda from Magnolia's Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection 2011. 
She is coloured with Distress Ink, reinkers.
And look! What is hidden behind the shaker box?:)
A tag with a mini Halo Tilda.

Deep Ocean Challenge #13 {Letter "C"}

For the next two weeks you can join the Deep Ocean Challenge, where the theme is
The letter "C".
I have made a Criss Cross Christmas Card!
I have coloured up Sweet Christmas Tilda from Magnolia with Distress Inks.
For the purple colour I have mixed together Aged Mahogany and Dusty Concord. 
After adding that mix first, I have laid the shaddows with Black Soot.
For the brown I have used Walnut Stain, and then Black Soot.
Under you can see some closeups:

This year I have put together the Advent candles myselves. 
I bought the numbers in the Magnolia store, and the plate is from Kremmerhuset, the decorations stones are from Black Design, and the candles from Living. 
So next Sunday I will be ready to light candle number one. 
The countdown starts;)

MDUC #122 ~ So Sentimental

Here comes my new card for MDUC this coming week.
We have the focus on sentiments:) And the text have to be the focial point.
Mine is from Magnolia, and I have also stamped on some snow flakes (Magnolia). And then I have used an old stamp from Stempelglede, and used clear embossing over the other stamps.
You can see the fine pattern if you look closely.
Baking Tilda here is colored with Distress Ink, re-inkers.
Her dress does not fit the papers or flowers at all... But I just wanted to use this paper from Maja Design-Vintage Winter (December), and think it looks ok.. Not perfect, but... I had no time to paint a new Tilda. 
"Blessings for a wonderful.." is from Maja Design too, and the Klippark.
A close up of the sentiment.
On the bottom of the paper I have stamped a border from Maja Design's stamps.
I have used my poststamp again. I am sorry, but I don't know where you can get it. I bought it a long time ago, and they don't sell it there anymore.

DT Maja Design

Her kommer et julekort med både stempel og papirer fra Maja Design's nye kolleksjon, Vintage Winter.
En fantastisk herlig kolleksjon! 
Det søte motivet, Ella med Ljus, er fargelagt med Distress Ink, reinkers.
Liker så godt de herlig slitte papirene med gotisk skrift på:)
Og så er det så fint at papirene matcher så godt med hverandre.
Jeg har svertet kantene med Distress Ink-Walnut Stain, og rufset dem med Tim Holtz sin paper distresser.
Snøkrystallene er stanset ut med en Martha Stewart punch.
På tagen har jeg stemplet en juletekst fra Maja Design.
Ha en fin fredagskveld! 
Og tusen takk for at du besøker bloggen min.

Fellesprosjekt hos Hjerteboden's Juleblogg i november ~ Pakkelapper ♥

Vi i Hjerteboden's Juleblogg har valgt oss pakkelapper som fellesprosjekt for november!
Og her kommer mine...
Det ble litt i hurten og sturten, 
så jeg tror jeg skal lage noen flere senere med litt mer pynt på!
Men ta turen innom Julebloggen, for der er det mange utrolig flotte pakkelapper fra de andre!!
Det ble to i denne omgang. Så mangler det bare "til" og "fra", og så gavene da. 
Har i motsetning til de andre ikke begynt for alvor med julehandelen...
Stemplene er fra Magnolia, og mini Star Tilda er kjøpt i Borås i høst.
Hjerteboden får snart inn mange mini stempler med de nye julestemplene i butikken,
så da må jeg nok lage noen fler;)

An Advent Calendar ♥

 As many of you thought I have made an Advent Calendar! 
I had been admiring Hanne's gorgeous Calendar, and wanted to try myself.
I have made all the windows myself of bazzill-vanilla.
And I have taken some photos during making it, which I will show in another post.

 The last window to open is ofcourse 24 (here in Norway), and here you will find a big room. It is the whole inside of the house.
 Here is another side of the house. I have made a balcony of the Doo Hickey die-Lovely Fence.
 Here I have masked together Tilda with the sledge.
 A closer look on the balcony.
 Here I have masked together three stamps.
 On the other side I have no stamps, only windows and a chimney.
 I have made the roof-edges with a DooHickey called Swedish Lace.
I have sewed around all paper edges, also around each window. 
I have decorated around each window with Stickles-Platinum.
On the insides of the windows I have fasten ribbon and laces for curtains. I forgot to take a good photo of it, but if you look on the photo above, you can have a glimpse of it.
 And here is the last side. 
 The cutest Lucia-choir put together with four Magnolia images.
Here is Tilda masked together with the bench.
On the photo under you can see how I have put the images in front of the house.

 The chimney.
 A closeup of the bullfinch.
