Create *Marvelous Magnolia DT*

Right now I am at my last week at scool,
I study online and travel to my school three weeks
per semester, and this is my last week of my very last semester.
I just cant believe I am almost done, has it been four years already?
I have applied for jobs and everything,
and I feel both excited to work, scared to death about my last
two exams, scared and nervous about the responsibility about
being a techer and about having to go to an interview...
And so happy to be almost done at the university!
Yes, so many feelings!

Today I want to show you a birthday card for a special someone 
who's birthday is comming up. :)
And again, no flowers! Unless you count the button.
This card is my card for our midway reminder at
This time, we want to se ribbons or bows. 


I used papers from Prima and Maja design,
and a doily behind the image. 


Tilda was colored with Distress Reinkers,
before I sprayed Chalkboard Glimmer Mist over her.


The Doohickey tag is removable, 
and has Lily of the valley-sentiments on both sides.
The angel charm was a gift, I think they are so pretty. :)
I used white string and a white button, both from Ribbon Girl. 


The lightboulb is from Prima, and I added some pearls.
I think the whole card was very inspired by Elaine, in fact!
She makes the most beautiful cards. :)

Love Birds

Oh my gosh, look at that?
Not a flower in sight!
Somehow, they where just not right on this one,
but it felt strange putting the flower box back without using any...

I am feeling a bit lazy, I dont remember the name of the paper,
but I will have to go downstairs to check, and my blanket if feeling
so soft and warm... 


I got this wooden heart at a craft shop before Christmas.
I had already painted it, but today I glued little pearls all over it.
Seems I have become bit of an ebay addict. Got both of the doilies
there, and all those pearls.
I used structure paste for the first time today,
combined with a stencil from Memory Box. 



This doohickey I have wanted since it first came out I think,
and now I finally have it!
The sentiment is from Lily of the Valley. 



The birds are from Prima, I dabbet them with white
and distressed a little with Walnut Stain.
I used a "Love" charm tied with white string from Ribbon Girl,
where I also got the ribbon I used.
Also used some pompoms and cardboard.

Doily Love *Marvelous Magnolia DT*

Blogger did not want to cooperate, so this post was published
way early, even if I had it planned, and I had not written anything either.
Well, here it is, all done. ;)

This is my DT post for Marvelous Magnolias Midway reminder
off our current challenge where we want to see doilies!
I have gotten myslelf some gorgeous doilies on ebay,
and finally I have square doilies too. ;)



The papers I have used are from Maja Design, just cant get enough
of those! Love the pinstriped ones so much. :)
Both of the ribbons and the heart bling I got at Ribbon Girl. 



The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Papirdesign.
I made a bow out of cloth from Ribbon Girl.
The flowers was dabbet with white acrylic paint,
I cant seem to not do that. Perhaps an intervention is in order?



The key is from Tim Holtz, with a piece of left over ribbon on it. 


This Magnolia image was colored with Distress Reinkers,
and I added Chalkboard Glimmer Mist and some Liquid Pearl,
as always.

You are a possibility!

Today I made a bag-card intended for Confirmation. 


The papers are from Maja Design, the "Skärgårdsliv"-series.
I also used a doily, a stunning lace from Ribbon Girl
(I love that lace so much!!),
and a pearl string. 


All the stamps are from Kort og Godt. This one translates into

"The World is full of
Possibilities
Remember      
         you
are one of them

I think that is quite suitable for confirmation. :)
I added some star dies from Memory Box,
and Liquid Pearl.


The heart charm, string and ribbon are from Ribbon Girl,
and the big pearl charm are from Tim Holtz. 


Love these bling thingies, I got them for Christmas!
(Thank you so much, Elaine!!)


This is the inside of the card,
The chandelier (and the sentiment on the front) are new,
and I love it so much!
You can see I used my Martha Stewart Puncher,
even if it is broken and there is a hole missing in the pattern...

Spring Green Edwin *Marvelous Magnolia DT*

This week at Marvelous Magnolia our challenge is "add some green".
I am sure a lot of you have a little green in your cards
these days, so come join us!

We have had some spring weather already,
in north of Norway we usually are buried in snow this
time of year, March is actually the worst snow month.
This year, we hardly had any, and we have had some lovely
weather too. The last week, however, one storm took over
where the other one left of. I am sitting in my living room
and the walls are shaking and the rain is poring down.
Dont worry, it is quite normal for us, but is it just
so tiering when I want to go outside for a hike and
get some air and sun.

So that is my inspiration for my card,
I am so looking forward to nice weather and the real springtime!


I used papers from Pion and Maja, if I am not mistaken. 



I colored Edwin up with my distress Reinkers.



The flowers I have are from Wild Orchid Crafts,
and some I believe are from Ribbon Girl, where I also got my ribbons.
I used a flourish die, lace and cheese cloth.

Fairy Fift Birthday! *Marvelous Magnolia DT*

On the 17th my sweet little girl turned 5,
and is was celebrated in a fashionable manner with a
princess party and lots and lots of pizza and cake,
baloons and pink sugary stuff.

This is the card I made for her,
with one of my abselute favourite Tildas!
It is also my inspirational card for the midway reminder
of our super simple challenge over at
Marvelous Magnolia: Anything goes! Come join us. :)

The papers are from Inkido, Maja and Poppy Design.
I used my cloud dies from Magnolia, I wanted to make
a little magical scene with butterfly clouds,
pearl wind, frosted flowers and glittering mushrooms. 


The heart buttons are from Ribbon Girl,
I added some acryllic paint to them (and pretty much
everything else on my card...). The letters are from Prima. 


I also used pearl string, a heart doily, a sentiment from Magnolia,
a pin, and cheese cloth. 


Tilda was inked with Distress Reinkers and a waterbrush,
I used Liquid Pearl around, and lots of Star Dust Stickles. 


The lace, starburst stamens and white flowers are all from Ribbon Girl.
The other flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
I used my Martha Stewart lacy heart puncher too. 


I used lots of cheese cloth under the flowers,
and frosted everything with acryllic paint, and some stickles
on the mushrooms from Prima.

A gift from the heart

This is so far the last of the left over cards I made earlier.
This one is mostly made from Pion design paper,
I think. The sentiment is from Magnolia,
and I used a paper doily and a lace doily cut from
an old and stained table cloth that I found in a secon hand shop.

Pearls and flowers

Another shabby left over card.
I used papers from Maja Design,
and the green one is foreign to me.

The flowers are from Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts.
I used a doily, a crown pin, 
 and a piece of pearl swirl from Ribbon Girl.
