Midweek Magnolias #35

Happy hump day, friends and bloggers,

It's Midweek Magnolias day AKA Wednesday  and we have a fabulous new challenge for you over at the Midweek Magnolias Challengeblog today. 
This week's theme is ...

Anything Goes!

All we ask is that you use a Magnolia on your card or project.
Stop by the blog to see the details and enjoy the gorgeous creations my fellow DT's have made for your inspiration!

I made what I've named a "triple- card" which in this case means that my card has three pages (lol).
I used papers from Maja Design; from the Life by the Sea Collection;
Most of the gorgeous embellishments I used are all from Prima except from the small WOC roses and the dies (spellbinders and Memorybox). All the Prima embellishments can be found over at the Live & Love craft Store. In the upper left corner I used one of the Art Tiles "Romantique" and a Vintage Trinklet. The big flowers are Parchent Petals "Vintage" and one of the Fabric Flowers "Manette". The clock is from the Prima wood clocks and tickets set "Thea thyme" and the Celebration banner is from the set Wood Tickets "Songbird".

The card has three layers with a hole in the front to show the stamp. I attached ribbon to be able to close the card.

Here is the second page of the card, I masked one of my Magnolia Tilda's with the Swing background stamp. I used a Marianne Design grass die.
The image is colored with Copic Markers.

Here's the last pages of the card. I played around with the scraps of the beautiful papers, and added a Prima wood door "no 8" and some Wood Buttons "Fairy Belle". The doilies behind the journalling spot is a Magnolia doohickey.

Hope you are inspired to join in our challenge today!
Please stop by the Midweek Magnolias Challengeblog for all the details you need to join us. Can't wait to see what you create!

Live & Love Craft Sunday Inspiration

God morning friends, 
It's my turn to showcase a project  Live and Love craft inspiration and challenge blog today. We are having an angel-theme this week. You should stop by the blog to see the gorgeous creations of the DT this week. Angels are perfect for the upcoming season, and I found one of my older magnolias and made a Christmas card in blues and whites.  

I used papers from the lovely Pion design; Guardian Angel 6x6. I added some light blue Jute Ribbon and the gorgeous Vintage Scallop Lace Trim. I colored the Magnolia stamp with Distress Ink. The pearls are Melissa Frances white pearls and I added i piece of cheese cloth behind the image. The punches and dies are from Martha Stewart, Magnolia doohickey's and spellbinders. The postmark stamps and sentiment are from Kort og Godt.

I colored my Magnolia Angel with distress ink pads and markers. 
I used: tattered rose and vintage photo for the skin. The cheeks are a mix of aged mahogony and tattered rose. I used antique linnen, walnut stains and a touch of vintage photo for the hair, black sooth for the dress and wings, stormy sky for the shadow and mustard seed and vintage photo for the star. The stamps around Tilda are some older magnolia snowflakes.

The beautiful Shabby Seam Binding is now in restock at the LLC Store, I use the sky blue one here. I also used a Vintage Pearl Brad from Creative Charms and a silver Jingle bell- perfect for any Christmas project.

 The big flower is put together with Doily Flower dies- Magnolia doohickey's.  I used  distress ink to color some of them to match my blue card, and I stamped with snowflakes on the big one. The roses are from WOC and the charms are from my stash. I also attached a little piece of pearl string and a Vintage Trinklet Heart Pin.

Here's a peak at the inside too. 

I would like to enter the following challenges: 
Wild Orchid Flowers: #61 Silver or gold. (silver: charms, jingle bell and brad)

Autumn/Fall Colors

Stop by the Midweek Magnolias to join in for a chance

I masked the Magnolia background stamp "Welcome to a lovely home" with Tilda on the loose. I colored the image with  distress ink pads. The copper corner is the Large Metal Corner.

GDT på Copic Marker Norge!


Jeg har fått den store ære å være ukens gjestedesigner på Copic Marker Norge! Jeg ble kjempeglad da jeg fikk spørsmålet fra Siv, jeg er nemlig stor fan av bloggen! 
I dag er det tid for en ny utfordring, og jeg har laget et julekort i Shabby Chic stil, det passet meg jo midt i blinken.

 I was honored to be asked to be a guest designer over at Copic Marker Norge! The theme for the new challenge is to make a Shabby chic Christmas card.

Her er kortet mitt. 

Jeg har brukt fjorårets juleark fra Maja Design. 
 Jeg har brukt litt osteklut, blonder, perler og bånd fra en lokal hobbybutikk, og diesene jeg har brukt er fra Magnolia og Spellbinders. Snøfnugg-stemplene er også fra Magnolia.God jul stempelet er fra Kreativ Hobby.
I used papers from Maja Designs Christmas collection 2011.  The lace and pearls are from a local store.I used Magnolia and Spellbinder dies. The snowflakes stamps are from Magnolia, and the sentiment is from Kreativ Hobby.

 Stempelet er fra Magnolia og heter Tilda with a gift. 
Copicsene jeg har brukt er:

Hår: E49--29-27-25-31;

I hjørnene og på swirlen, har jeg embosset med hvitt embossing pulver, jeg har sydd med symaskin rundt kantene og distresset med distress ink. På juletrediecut'en har jeg laget små perler med Liquid Pearl- opal white.
I used white embossing powder in the corners and on the swirl. I stitched the edges of the papers with  my sewing machine and distressed the edges with distress ink. I also added Liquid Pearl to the Tree- die cuts. 

Slik ser kortet ut på innsiden. Die'en er fra Spellbinders.

Jeg er så glad i stemplene fra Magnolias Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection, så selv om det er kommet mange nye siden da, så måtte jeg ha noen flere av disse da jeg var innom Bikuben nylig.
I still love the Magnolia stamps from the Sweet Christmas dreams Collection the most, so I went out and got a few of them. This one, the Midwinter Tilda, is one of them. Isn't she lovely?

Sett med vin-tag, bokmerke og cookie bag.
Jeg har brukt papirer fra Maja Design, blomster fra Wild Orchid Flowers, Perlene er fra Kort og godt, bånd og blonder er fra en lokal hobbybutikk. Alle kanter er distresset med vintage photo distress ink.
I made a gift set: a wine-tag, bookmark and a cookie bag.

 Bokmerket er et enkelt hjørnebokmerke. Jeg har brukt en Magnolia doohickey die: Tilda Lace til kanten neders, og en spellbinders rundt stempeltrykket. Stempelet er fra Magnolia og er malt med distress ink.
This is a simple corner bookmark. I used the Magnolia Doohickey's die: Tilda lace for the bottom edge, a spellbinder die around the image. The Image is a Magnolia, and I colored it with distess inks.

 Her lagde jeg en tag ved hjelp av to spellbinder diecuts. Charm'en er kjøpt på ebay. (cookiene er hjemmebakt!)

On this I used a tag using two spellbinder die cuts. I got the charm on ebay. (the cookies are home made...lol...)

Vin-tagen skar jeg ut etter mye plunder:) Die'en på toppen er en Magnolia Doohickey: mini doily, Dien rundt stempeltrykket er fra spellbinders. Jeg har brukt litt osteklut bak bildet. Stempelet er fra Magnolia og er malt med distress ink pads og markers.
