Pink, white and orange *GDT MDUC*

Ah, Magnolia!
Have you guys seen the new images?
I had a look yesterday, and I thought the new stamps would
annoy me, because it bugs me how every child is called
prince or princess these days, and there are kids
furniture with crowns on it, etc. Its just too much.
My child is not royal.
But, the Magnolias had a lot of supercute images,
at least one of them I REALLY want:


I looooove the Harry Potter series,
I have been reading the books for about 13 years.
So this image is a MUST have, eaven though I really shouldnt
spend any more money on scrapping. I`m doing a shop-stop.
But I guess I`ll make an exception for this special one. ;)

Now for my card.
This is my fourth and final card as guest designer for
Magnolia Down Under Challenges.
I had to much fun, and it was nice to have a reason to
make a minimum of cards even if I didnt have the time
or mojo to do it.
Thank you so much for having me!
This week the challenge is to use the colors
Pink, white and orange.

This time I used only one layer of paper (whaat?).
It is the sweet bunny-paper from Magnolia.


I have used flowers from Prima,
Petaloo and Wild Orchid Crafts.
I think the berries are from Kort og Godt,
and the pearl is from Kutt Ut.
I have used cheese cloth, my very last piece,
and a heart doily.

The buttons are from Basic Grey.
I think the hearts are from Panduro. They were red,
so I used some acrylic paint and Stickles on them.
The bling-thing in the flower is from Prima.
Notice the diamond pins!


The sentiment is from Magnolia. I love it,
but I`m horrible at using stamped sentiments,
I just cant seem to find the right plase to put it, and it
never fits with the other embellishments.
Must practise more at that.
The swirl I cant remember where its from,
but its also painted and Stickle`d up,
like the rest of the card.
The lace is from 


I chose to get this Tilda with my price certificate after winning
at the MDUC, and this is the first time I have used it.
Love her, she is a beauty!
I colored her with my Distress Inks,
and stamped with a Magnolia-stamp around the edges.
I swiped some acrylic paint on the image too.


I hope you all have a lovely weekend!
A big thank you to everyone who visit me,
love reading the comments. <3

Tilda and lots of flowers - GDT MDUC

This week at Magnolia Down Under Challenges they have
a wonderful sketch for us. I made a round card,
and as always I used so many flowers and embellishments
that you can hardly see the papers or what sketch I used.
I do love to decorate. ;)


The papers are from Magnolia and Inkido.
I scratched the edges
with Tim Holtz edge scraper.
The doily is from Panduro.


I love these bling-thingies, they are from Prima.
I used some lace from WOC too.


The flowers are a mix of Wild Orchid Crafts,
Kort og Godt, Storyteller and Papirloftet.
I used dies from Magnolia and one other,
and pins from WOC.


The scissors are from Kutt Ut.
I used a piece of Prima Cardboard as a tag,
and the end piece is sticking out here.


I also used pompoms, Seem Binding Ribbon and Pearl ribbon.
Tilda is colored with Distress Reinkers,
and I used Diamond Stickles on her clothes. 


Thank you so much for the lovely comments you leave for me.
I have been so busy, but I try to make a few rounds a week.

Hope you are all having a great weekend.
We have been celebrating my daughters third birthday,
so now we are all wiped out. ;)

Sixteen - *MDUC GDT*

This is my second card as Guest Designer for Magnolia Down Under Challenges.
This week, we want to see cards with one word sentiments.
My card is for my hubbys brother, who turns sixteen the day after
my daughters birthday. He babysit her a lot,
and is really a great boy. It was a perfect chanse for me to work
on my boy cards.

The papers I have used are from Magnolia.
I also used most of my last cheese cloth,
some pompoms, lace, ribbon and twine.
The bling swirl is from Prima.
It does not show,
but under the bow there are two charms
of a football and a football-shoe,
I paintet those white too.
I  also used a little die for those leafy flourishes,
I cant remember where it is from.


The letters are from Prima and American Crafts,
I dabbed them with white acrylic paint, and used stickles on them,
and a bit of Distress, to make them stand out.
The film strip is from Tim Holtz, it fits perfectly on a card for this boy,
he loves making movies.


The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
I used my Martha Stewart snow flake punch,
and the brad is from Papirloftet.
I also added a doily, some pins,
and a snow flake chipboard.  


I colored this Edwin with my Distress inks.


I have been very busy with school and such,
so it has been a bit quiet from me lately,
but I have som more cards on the way,
and thanks to all who visit me.
I always love reading the comments you leave!

Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.

Lots of Love *GDT MDUC*

I was asked a little while ago if I wantet to be a guest designer for
I think maybe it was a pity-offer because of some bad luck I had
with contacting them after winning a challenge,
but I`m very honored, and happily accepted. :)

The challenge this week is titled "Love is in the air".
I made this card for a friend of mine, she has been sick
and in a lot of pain, and at the time the doctors still hadnt figured out
what was wrong with her. Its scary, cus its something in the brain,
that made her face hurt. So I figured she could use a little love.


The papers are from Magnolia. I have been wanting to do something
colorful and bright like this for a while. I dont know if this ended up
just how I wantet it, but I`ll try again. ;) 


The tag comes out like this, 


I have decorated it with cut out fans from Poppy design,
and seem binding ribbon from WOC and ribbon from Kutt Ut.
The pearls I got in my calendar. 


The flowers are a mix of Prima, Petaloo and Wild Orchid Crafts.
I have used some flower-ribbon from Bikuben, and large pearls.
The tag is Magnolia, and I used twine from WOC, and a charm.
The heart doily i also got in my calendar. 


Oh the horror of my handwrighting, I just hate it,
but nothing else fitted the card and the frame.
The frame is from Tim Holtz, I just love it.
The metal did not fit here, so I painted it. First with Crackle paint,
wethered wood, but it wasnt right either, and the paint
just came right off. Then I dabbed it in acrylic paint.
I used Crackle Accents to make the letters stick,
and give it back the crackled look.
The letters are from Cosmo Cricket, I think.
I have used Magnolia swirl dies, cheese cloth,
and a left over piece of pink bling. 


Tilda is colored with Distress Inks. Woops,
look at that. Now as I am making this post, I see that I forgot
a little something in her hair. I`ll have to fix that before sending it.
I have used a bit of Stickles and Liquid Pearl.
