Hang in there...

Today I want to show you this card.
Hang in there comes from Magnolias
pet and animal collection 2009.
The leavestamp is an old Magnoliastamp.
The leavepunch is Martha Stewart.
Tilda is a new stamp.

I have painted with distress ink and inked
all edges with walnut stain.

The last days it have been raining cats and dogs
and it feels like autumn in the mornings,
so this is a suitable card for the season!

Have a nice sunday and thanks
for stopping by!

I told you some time ago that I bought myself a
martha stewart scoringboard this summer.
I promised to show what I´ve done with it,
so here we go!
I have made this box for Wild Orcid Crafts

I have made a halloweenbox using Magnolias
papers from the "So spooky collection 2009".
The lid is made by black cardstock.
I have embossed all edges and corners with
holographic embossingpowder.
I have also sprayed the whole box with
glimmermist, though that is hard to catch
on these photos.

I have used Martha stewart border punch for the
edges of the lid.

The spiderwebstamp comes from Magnolia and
also the fencestamp.

The tag is Magnolias Doohickeys.
I have inked the edges with Distress Ink
Walnut stain.

Here is the box inside:

Have you started  with your Halloweencards yet?
I usually don´t make many but they are fun to make!

Have a nice day!

A spooky note...

Today I want to show this Halloweencard.
I know it´s quite some time left before we
reach the date, but I know time flies...

All stamps comes from Magnolia.

It was so fun to make a card in these colours!
I have used Dusty Concord, Aged Mahogny,
Black Sooth and Tumbled Glass.
For skin I´ve used Vintage Photo + tattered rose.

The big black flower + red chandelier + brads comes
from Magnolia. The tag is the new Hickorie Die tag.

Do you see the black spider in the left corner?
It´s a toy I found in an old toybox at home,
it´s perfect for my card- dont you think!?

Wish you all a pleasent (and not spooky)
evening tonight!

Welcome little princess...

♥Hi stampers!♥
First of all I want to ♥thank♥ all of you who take
your time to visit me and also leave a little
comment now and then. It makes me so happy
to read and I love to see who you are coming here!

I am entering this challenges with my princesscard:

The flowers comes from Wildorchidcrafts.
The cute stamps is Fairydust-Tilda from
Magnolias Fairytalecollection 2010.

I have used Fiskars scalloped borderpunch around the
bottompanel. Just under Tilda I have used
Magnolia DooHickey's "Tilda Lace die".
The pink frog paper is from Magnolias own line.
Isn´t it pretty???

The tagdie is a nestabilitie die that I have ordered from
USA. The text says: Welcome...little princess.
I have sprayed the whole card with glimmermist
and used stickles stardust to get a sparkling effect.

The long curly white embellishments to the right
comes from magnolias own store. My oldest daughter (18)
told me that I just have to get these cool things
for my cards! ;o) They comes in many different colours.
And I think they turned out pretty well, don´t you?!

Photos from Cha...

I have been looking around for some photos
from Cha... I seems that people was busy
just enjoying their selves and looking around
at all new goodies- FORGETTING to show
us what happened there...:o)
I am especially curious about Magnolia
and how it looked with the cards and everything around!
If you have seen some good photos somewhere,
please write me the link so I can go and have a look!

This is what I found at Scrapbookcityblog.
Have a nice saturday!

Happy anniversary...

Today I want to share this card with you.
I have masked the weddingcouple from magnolias
"weddingcollection 2010"
with the lovely fence from spring 2010.
I am articipating in these challenges with my card:

Here we go:

I have used my favourite-embellishments on this card.
Beatiful flowers, lace- both paperlace and ordinary lace,
blingpearls, stickles, crackleaccent and  
a lot of glimmermist...:o)
to make that extra glitter and sparkling effect.

I have cut the fencestamp apart and made two stamps
out of it to be able to place Tilda and Edwin in between.
It works perfect and now I can use this lovely
stamp together with several of my Magnoliastamps!

I have painted with distress ink refills on aquarellpaper 300 gr.

For the first time I have tried crackleaccent,
and I just love it! I have seen many of my favourite-
cardmakers use it before but never tried myself earlier.
When I was colouring the "heartbanner"-
that is one of my favouritestamps from the weddingcollection,
it just hit me: I just have to use crackleaccent on this!
So i went ahead and bought a bottle and it turned out
to be perfect! It´s such a cool detail:

Have a real nice thursday and see you soon again!

♥ Hooked with Edwin ♥ ...

I hope you all are having a great crafting sunday!
Here it´s raining, so it´s a perfect day for spending
time in my little craftingplace.
Today I want to show you my first card with
Dangling Edwing from magnolias new collection
"Bon Voyage 2010"

I tried to make a card with  LITTLE embellishments
to get a masculine touch and feeling.

When Pauline draws new stamps I always fall in love
with some special ones. If I don´t get them pretty soon
they keep haunthing me night and day until I have
them in my hand...;o)
Is there someone out there recognizing this???
For those who are new to this hobby it could seem
like a real nightmare, being addicted to stamping! Ha-ha...
Well, "Dangling Edwin" is one of the special ones
for me from the new collection.

I have tried to make shadows/background like my
Dt-college Chris. I certainly need more practice but it
was fun to try some new technice!

Keep crafting- it makes you happy!
