MDUC #148 Colour recipe ~ Purple, Yellow, Red ♥

Here comes my card for this weeks challenge at MDUC
This time the challenge is to use the three colors: purple, yellow and red. 
It was really a challenge for me, since these are colours I never mix!
But my husband is turning 37 next week, and he is a supporter for a soccer team in red. 
So with this in my mind I started with the card:)
We are going to celebrate his birthday this evening, so now when I am writing this post, and am also baking some cakes;)
Here are some info about the card:
Image: Magnolia-Soccer Edwin-The winner takes it all (2011).
Pattern papers: Prima
Dies: DooHickey's from Magnolia (Scalloped tag and So Wrapped Starlight)
The stars are stars taken out from the Doo Hickeys-So Wrapped Starlight. I have added crackle accents to them, but that is a bit difficult to see here.

Thank you so much for visiting!
And have a lovely evening:)

DT Maja Design ~ Wedding ♥

Today's post is made for the Maja Design official blog, which I am hosting today.
I am also hoping to enter the challenge at Papirpikene (Papirpikene's verden)with this card, 
the theme there is WEDDING.
I am sure many of you have gotten the lovely Vintage Summer Basics by now, and felt the excellent quality and seen the beautiful patterns. I am in love:)
For today I have made a wedding bookcard. 
A dear colleague of mine at work is going to USA (!!!) to attend a wedding there. 
And she asked me to make the card.
I have used the pattern paper called 1922 for this card. I have used both sides of the paper. I have used 1921 for the Wrapped Heart tag and where I have used the Scalloped Dotted Lace (DooHickeys from Magnaolia) on the frame.
The stamps I have used are all from Magnolia's Wedding Collection 2010.
On the front I have the Loving Wedding Couple, and inside the card I have used Sitting Wedding Tilda and Sitting Wedding Edwin.
Under you can see some flower details, and two butterflies which I have made with a Martha Stewart punch. I have fasten some cheese cloth behind the frame, and it is as all the paper sewed with my sewing machine and inked with Distress Ink pad-Walnut stain. I use Tim Holtz blending tool for this. A regular sponge is fine, but when I use the TH blending tool I don't get any ink on my fingers.
Down in the corner of the book I have placed several flowers. 
And on them I have fastened a beautiful key charm from Hjerteboden. I have fastene it with tacky glue
The white dots I have around the edge are made with Liquid Pearls-White Opal.
I have also decorated the inside of the book. My colleague wasn't going to have a gift inside the card anyway, so I had my hands free:) Behind Tilda and Edwin there is a heart covered with mostly roses.
And over the heart filled with flowers I have put a banner with the wedding couple's names.
To fasten Tilda and Edwin I have simply glued their feet in one of the folds in the book.
I have added Liquid Pearls to her hair, and also Crackle Accents to the flowers on both.
On the other side I have placed a paper to write a greeting on.
When you close the book, it looks like a bookmark coming up:)
The swirls and the text "Til Brudeparet" are from Stempelglede.
Their initials. Made with the Tim Holtz Vintage Market alphabet. I cut them out from cardboard, then painted them with white gesso, then crackle paint-picket fence, then inked the edges a little with walnut stain, before eventually adding Crackle Accents to them:) All that work for just two letters..:)
Here is both the front and back.
At last I can mention that the images are coloured with Distress Markers and Distress Ink, reinkers.
For Tilda's dress I have simply only used Tattered Rose (Markers) and then used Walnut Stain (Distress Ink) for the shadows in the dress. After coloring I have added Stickles-Star Dust on her dress.
For the shadows in Edwin's outfit, I have used Pumice Stone.
Their hair is first colored with Antique Linen (Markers), then I have used Walnut Stain (Distress Ink) on the the dark places and stripes. 
For their skin I have only used Markers. First I color with Antique linen on the edges, and drag the color out with a brush. Then I do the same with Tattered Rose. And at last I use the color Tea Dye on the dark places, like under the hair in their forehead. 
You can also read this post in my Magnolia blog.
Please visit the Maja Design Blog for more inspiration with the beautiful papers.
I wish Christine and Bryan an amazing wedding day tomorrow!!
Thank you so much for visiting,
and I hope you liked my Wedding Book Card ♥

Sweet Pea konfirmasjons posekort ♥

Jeg har fått noen hvite papirposer fra Camilla i Sverige, som jeg har funnet ut passer perfekt som posekort til konfirmanter. De har smal åpning, så da passer det så bra med en tag inni til å skrive på.
Til dette posekortet har jeg brukt favorittstempelet mitt fra Sweet Pea Stamps, som heter Jeweled.
Nå kommer resten av teksten på engelsk:)
She is coloured with Distress Markers and Distress Ink, reinkers. For her skin I have only used the Markers. I start with laying the colour Antique Linen on all her edges, and drag the colour out with a brush, then I do the same with Tattered Rose. At the end it put Tea Dye on the darkest places on her skin. Also for the pink I have used Markers, here Victorian Velvet and Aged Mahogany. For the dark shadows I have used Black Soot (Distress Ink). If you look closely you can see that I have also added Crackle Accents, Liquid Pearls-White Opal and Stickles-Star Dust on the image.
The post stamps are from Kort og Godt, as well as the laces.
The letters are made with Tim Holtz-Vintage Market Alphabet die. I have used thick cardboard, and painted them with both Gesso-white paint and Crackle Paint-Picket Fence. 
The text "Til Konfirmanten" is from Stempelglede.
More view of how the card is built up layer by layer.
Behind the image I have put some cheese cloth.
The cute heart charm is from Hjerteboden
Under you can see the tag that I have made for the inside of the paperbag.
The sentiment and swirls are also from Stempelglede.
I have also made a place to put the money, under the Fancy Tag.
The heart tag is called So Wrapped Lovely and is from Magnolia.
 Here is a last view of the beautiful image!
And how great is the pattern papers I have used?!!:) They are ofcourse from Maja Design's latest collection called Vintage Summer Basics.
I would love to participate in Card and Scrap's ongoing challenge with this card,
the theme is to use metal. I have a metal corner up on the left on the image (which I have painted white with Crackle Paint-Picket Fence) and I have also used the lovely heart from Hjerteboden.
Thank you so much for visiting my blog, 
and have a lovely Sunday!

TPS ~ Konfirmasjonskort

Her kommer et konfirmasjonskort som jeg faktisk har laget for en stund siden, men bare ikke rukket å legge ut. Det knalltøffe motivet er fra Tickled Pink Stamps og heter Lolita Lilith.
Jeg har fargelagt med Distress Markers og Distress Ink, reinkers.
Tekststempelet og swirlene er fra Stempelglede.
Mønsterarkene er ifra Fab Scraps
Jeg tror faktisk jeg brukte sju (!!!)timer på å fargelegge dette motivet. Men da var jeg også på Strilascrappen sammen med Audhild og Bente...:) Så jeg var ikke så veldig effektiv akkurat.

Jeg ønsker deg en flott lørdag!
Tusen takk for at du besøker bloggen min.

Flere guttekort til konfirmasjonen:)

Jeg kommer bare med et kort innlegg i dag. 
Her er noen flere kort fra konfirmasjonskortproduksjonen min:)
Jeg fikk en bestilling på fire litt enkle kort, og dette ble resultatet.
Stilige Maja papirer fra Vintage Summer Basics, og ellers litt Tim Holtz pynt:)
Bølgepappen, tannhjulene og hempen er malt med hvit gessomaling.
Magi-tekst fra Stempelglede. Hovedmotivet er jeg ikke helt sikker på hvor er ifra. Jeg kjøpte det på Papirgleder for mange år siden. Det er stemplet på glossy kartong, med Archival Ink-Jet Black.

Ønsker deg en super fredag:)
