Tilda Confirmation Easel Card

Yesterday I sat down and was going to make my card for CLP,
but as I started making it I decidet that the sketch (gorgeous  as it was)
didnt fit what I had in mind. And you know, when you have an
idéa you like, you`ve got to go with it.

So I made this easel card,
a girl confirmation card.

I have used papers from Inkido, Magnolia and Pion. 


The letters are My Little Shoebox.
I have used some lace from Wild Orchid Crafts.


I have used roses from Papirgleder and Wild Orchid Crafts.
I think I`m gonna have to make another order of flowers soon,
I need more of those light light soft pastell pink ones. 


Here is a pocket to put money in.


The large flower is from Prima,
I have been drooling over these for a while.
I have also used some pearls,
and can you see the crystal beads?
The ribbon is from WOC,
and I have used a tiny feather and
a brad from Making Memories. 


More roses, pearls and crystal beads.


Tilda was colored with Distress Inks.
I love this one, but I only have this one print,
I got it from my sweet friend Bonnie. :)
I was quite happy with the coloring this time, too.
The flourishes around the edge is a Magnolia corner stamp.

Edwin Confirmation Card

First, I want to share with you some news!
I am proud and honored to say that I was asked to join
the most amazing design team I know,
It is a monthly sketch challenge blog,
wich is perfect for me. I almost cant scrap
without a sketch anymore,
and Chelsea`s sketches are simply stunning!

I am looking foreward to getting started
for real, and getting to know the rest of the team.


This is my first contirmation card of the season.
I plan to make a few more, some without images as well,
to sell at the store my hubby works at.

These colors are a bit new for me,
but I think they worked out well?
I`we gotten some new papers,
even though I kind of ould not afford it,
I ordered a little pacage of papers.
I was all out of white cardstock,
so I had to fill up! Cant imagie being without!

The papers are from Inkido and Maja Design,
and I used some bling and a bit of lace.  


I love this frame, I think it is from Melissa Frances.
The letters got a bit squeesed, but I dont have a confirmation-stamp yet.


The flowers are from Prima, Papirloftet and Wild Orchid Crafts.
The key is from Tim Holtz,
I think it was quite fitting for a confirmation.
The film strip is altso TH.
The beautiful pins was from my friend
and now team-mate Bonnie. :)


Edwin was colored with my Distress Inks.
I tried a new green color that I got in my Christmas Calendar.
Love it.
Still having a lot of trubble with Edwins hairdo...

Followers Candy

Today I have a little bit of candy for my followers.
This blog is such a positive thing in my life,
its so nice to come here and read the lovely comments,
to be inspired and maybe inspire someone else?

I have been at it over two years now,
guess time flies when you`re having fun.

Just so I`m being clear:
The candy is things I have lying around my scrap desk.
That means that the products in the bottles have been taken a bit of,
but I dont use them, and hope someone else will.
Otherwise the candy is a mixture of stuff I have won and cant seem to use,
and some stuff I simply want to give away because I think it is so lovely.
Like the Prima-flowers, its gorgeous, right?


So what you have to do is:

1. Be a follower.
This is a thank you for my followers,
but if you are new to my blog you are welcome to join in.
Hope you do it because you like my blog,
its always sad at the end of a candy to see a lot of people remove my blog.

2. Add image and link in your sidebar or in a post.

3. Leave your name here with inlinkz.
The candy will end at June 13th, at 23.59 norwegian time.
That is the day of my last deadline at school for this semester.

I will draw the candy as soon as possible after that.

Thank you for following my blog,
and good luck!

Magic Tilda Criss Cross

Today I have another card for you,
I made a criss cross card using Wizard Tilda.
This is for a very special lady,
she will get it in the mail some time this summer. ;)

I feel it might be a bit naked card to make for me,
but I really could fint no place for more embellishments,
didnt want to cover everything up this time,
so I did it a little different than my usual overloaded style.

All the papers are from Poppydesign,
I just love them!
The banner and clouds are cut out from left over paper.


On the banner I used letters from My Little Shoebox.
I cut them a bit to make them smaller,
and then I covered the banner with Crackle Accents.
The lace and twine is from Wild Orchid Crafts.


The flowers and ribbon are from WOC.
I love that diamond, I got a whole bag of them from some sweet
girl at a forum, and that is also how I got the keys.
I painted them with acrylic paint, and covered them with Star Dust Stickles. 


Tilda from Magnolia was colored with Distress Reinkers.
I am getting a bit tired of the colors, so I almost always use lots of layers,
often with different colors, to get a neew look.
Her clothes are Victorian Velvet, Wethered Wood and Black Soot.
The dress is Wethered Wood and Black Soot.
I hate her hair, totally messed it up.
Why can I never make light hair?
It really bugs me. :p

Helle`s easter egg

Here is the last little bit of easter for this year. 
This one was made by my 14 year old sister.
She was a little bit more gutsy, and together we figured out
how to decorate the egg.


The flowers are from Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts. 


I have used bling from Prima, and butterflies from my Martha Stewart
puncher. They got some Diamond Stickles. 


The lace is from WOC, and the pearl string is from Kutt Ut. 


We used some cardboard, and a piece of paper from an old book. 


Now its back to dieting, working out and STUDYING!
Break over. ;)

Tilda in Vintage Spring

It has been a long time since I made a card now,
but today I finally got my groove back,
and made this in record time.
Usually, when I color an image and make the card,
I use about 4 hours. This was done in a little over two.

I have to appologise for the images,
I dont have Photoshop available at this moment,
so all I could do was crop them, using paint.
Usually I adjust the contrast too, so it looks more like the
real deal, but at least now I have proper light.
Love that spring is closing up,
but we are still buried in snow up here.

The papers are from My Minds Eye.
I have used some Quick Kuts dies,
a Magnolia Doohickey tag, and my Martha Stewart butterfly punch.



This adorable Tilda was colored with Distress Inks.
I used a bit of stickles on her clothes.
The round doily in the back is vintage.



The flowers are Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts.
The creme touille-ribbon is also prima, and so is the pebble.
The beautiful feather was a present.
The other ribbons are from Ribbon Girl.



The letter is from a Prima alphabet.



Challenges:
(I have used the blue Magnolia bunny-paper)

I hope you are all having a wonderful easter!
Thanks for visiting.

Sillja`s easter egg

This one my 11 year old sister made.
That means that I made suggestions
and she nodded. I tryed to get her to do something
herself, but I dont think she dared. :p
She did little things herself, like putting on some
blings and making the bow and putting on flowers
where we agreed they where going after I put glue on them.
Still nice though. ;)

There is a lot of Prima here. Two flowers, a pebble, the bling,
the letters and the paper. The other flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.


We also used a feather, some string,
a bird-charm and a tag. 


I love this cute lacey doily,
and the yellow Prima-flower.


Hope you are all enjoying easter week. :)

Easter egg

Yes, I have joined the wave.
I did buy some eggs last year to scrap,
but never got around to it.

This weekend I have had my two sisters visiting,
they are 14 and 11, and we usually scrap a bit
when they come. We also ate a LOT of cake and candy,
and had a Twilight marathon.

They both got to make their own egg
(meaning I made it with them),
and I also made one for our little brother.
He turns 5 tomorrow, actually.
He really is in a phase where he likes pink,
so I tryed to make the egg colorful enough to use
a bit of pink without overdoing it.
 

I used a piece of paper from an old book,
and the letters are from American Krafts.


The flowers are a mixture of Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts,
Papirloftet and Storyteller. The butterflies are Martha Stewart punches,
and the bling is from Prima.


I used a Magnolia die and a bit of twine from WOC.


The whole egg got a little mist of Glimmer, Chalkboard.
