I made this card for
the great Totally Tilda challenge blog, the challenge this week was to use a Tilda holding a flower or a bunch of flowers.
and for the wonderful Shabby Tearoom challenge blog, the challenge was to be inspired by this picture, using lilacs, yellow, blue, kraft and a butterfly.

Here's my card:

I used the lovely Peon design paper, QK dies for the sircles and swirls, bulberry flowers and butterfly, some ribbon and pearls. The inner sircle is kraft. The words says "congratulations on your birthday" in Norwegian.

I put the two stamps Tilda with Daisy and Shy Rose Edwin together, and colored them with my copics.
The card has an open circle in the front to show the image inside. The inside looks like this:

Moves and folds

I challenged myself to make a different  kind of card this time, for me anyway. I came a cross several bloggers and crafters making a foldingcard and was inspired to try something new. This is my take at the following two challenges:
Magnolialicious Highlites where the March challenge was to make a card that moves and groves.
The Just Magnolias challenge was to make a project with more than one fold.
Inspired by lots of blogging and the great DT's of the two great challengeblogs, this is what I came up with:

It opens two times. First like this:

and then one more time...

I used Melissa Frances papers, Bazzil, Flowers, pearls,  spellbinders for the shapes, Martha Stewart punch for the edges. and some ribbon.
I used one of my old Magnolia stamps: tilda with a birthday cake, and I made one more of those and cut the cake out for the front of the card. The Magnolia inside is part of a tilda on the loose- stamp.

The stamps are colored with copics: Tilda on the loose. Hair: E47-39-37-35-31, Hat: E57-53-51, Skin: E13-11-00, Dress: G21-82-00-BG10, 0, Shadow: W5-3-1
Tilda with birthdaycake: Hair: E57,47,39.35, Dress; R89, 85-81, Shoes: E57-53-51, Cake: C3-1-00

Hope you like it! Thank you for visiting my blog!

Hello again.Its been a productive weekend for me. And my lovely man was kind enough to take such wonderful pictures of my cards- he's the best. And he takes such great photos.
I made this card for my daughters best friends family, who just had a b.aby last week.
I woul like to enter the card in to the following challenges:
Hei. Min datters bestevenninne har fått en liten bror, selvsagt må de få et kort, og jeg fikk en sjanse til å bruke dette søte stempelet! Min snille samboer har vært så grei å ta bildene for meg, fine- ikke sant!
Kortet er mitt bidrag i 3 utfordringer:

Magnolia Down Under
It's a mangolia challenge

Magnolia Down Under is a great blog with lots of fun challenges every time. I'm proud to say I made the top 6 last week- yeah for me:) This weeks challenge is BINGO- I chose dies /punches, flowers, glitter/bling. Utfordringen her denne uken var bingo, jeg valgte dies/punc, blomster og glitter/bling.

It's a mangolia challenge Is a blog i just discoverd this week. Their challenge is to make a stepcard with a magnolia stamp on it. This was fun, I have never made a stepcard before, but it was
 not as hard as i thought. Denne bloggen oppdaget jeg nylig. Deres utfordring er å lage et step-card med et magnoliastempel på. Jeg har ikke prøvd meg på step card før, men det var ikke så vanskelig som jeg trodde:)

Papirdokkene is a Norwegian challengeblog I've been following but never entered. Their topic is "anyting goes". Papirdukkene er en norsk utfordingsblogg jeg har fulgt med på, men aldri deltatt. Denne utfordringen er "alt er lov".

I used Martha Steward Punch for the edge around the front, the swirls and leaves are QK dies, and spellbander nestabillities for the shape arund the stamp, bulberry flowers, and bling on the side and on the bottom card to keep the front standing. The papars ar Maja design.
Jeg har brukt Martha Steward Punch rundt kanten på kortet, swirlene og bladene er QK dies, og jeg har brukt spellbander nestabillities til kanten rundt stempelet, blomstene er Bulberry flowers, og jeg har brukt bling på siden av fronten, og på den delen kortet står på for å holde det stående. Papirene er fra  Maja design.

The magnolia stamp is Tilda's Family, very cute stamp, colored with my Copics.
Jeg har brukt stempelet "Tildas family" fra Magnolia. Stempelet er farget med Copics.

I left some room for a personal message on the card too.
Inni er det litt plass til å skrive en personlig hilsen.

Green is not my "confort zone-color", so it was a fun challenge trying to make a card from mostly greens.
I was inspired by the following challenges:

The wondeful Sweetstop sketches challengeblog, with a great scetch and green as this weeks challenge.
And antother fun challenge from The Just Magnolia and Hanglar and Stenglar blog, with this weeks "green"-challenge.

The papers are from the lovely Maja Design, and since I don't own any doohickeys or fence-dies, i stamped a Magnolia fence-stamp on green bazzil, cut it out, used some paint and glossy accent for texture. The corrugated cardbord and the papers are destressed with distress ink (green of course).
I also used glossy accent on the flowers. The words means "bon voyage" in Norvegian.

I colored my "Tilda on the loose" from the Bon Voyage collection, with copics.
I used the following colors:
Skin: E 13-11-00, R20
Dress: G99-94-82, W1
Hair, hat, shues: E 35-33-31-
Suitcaise: E 35-33-31, YR 23-24, W3
Socks: C3-1-00

Blått og hvitt kort etter skisse.

Her er et kort med mitt siste innkjøp- Tilda med Daisy. Utrolig søtt stempel, synes jeg. Jeg har alt på bølgepapp og mønsterark  med hvit maling for en litt lysere effekt. Ellers blomster, mønsterark, blonder og perler. Spellbinders til rammen rundt tilda, Martha Steward punch til kanten. Stemplene er Magnolia, og malt med Copics.

Heres a card that I made for two challenges:

Just Magnolia, with the theme blue and white.
And a great new blog i just discovered: Midweek Magnolias, with this cool scetch.
Heres my Card:

I colored Tilda With Daisy, and an envelope stamp both from Magnolia.
I used Copics for coloring the stamps, white paint for the patterned paper and corrugated cardboard to make a lighter look.

Thank you for looking!

Easter comming up.... Snart påske!

Påsken nærmer seg med stormskritt, så jeg har prøvd meg på et lite påskekort i helgen:)

Easter is comming up, so I've been making an easter card this weekend.
I would like to enter the following challenges with this card:

Simply Magnolia "Anything Goes Challenge".

The Totally Tilda Challenge #42 "Easter".

The card says "Happy Easter" in Norwegian.

I used my favourite Magnoliastamp at the time, Tilda with Hawaiian flower.
I colored it with copics. Flowers from iamroses, and the letters are thickers.

This is how the card looks like inside. I put a small pice of a rabbit from the paper in the corner for to get that easter feel to it:)

The sweet stop scetch challenge- SSS148

Sometimes its hard to figure out how to compose my cards, so scetches are a good thing to get inspiration from. Heres a card that I made from The sweet stop scetch this week.

I used papers from the lovley Peon design, and lots of flowers of course:)

I colored the magnolistamp with copic markers, this time I tried å new style, with a very pale stamping, it appears as if the lines on the stamp melt in with the colors. It givs a soft look- wich i love.

Thank you for visiting my blog!

The Shabby Tearoom Challenge- aqua, green, pink and a tag.

Here's my take on the latest Shabby Tearom Challenge.
I Masked two Magnoliastamps to pair up for a "best friends" motive.

Theese are not my usual colours, but my 5 year old loves it:)

The papers and tag are from Melissa Frances, bulberry roses and butterfly. I used copics for coloring and some white paint for distress effect.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm happy if you leave a comment:)
