Sparkling Winter Tilda

Yeeey, I have a Magnolia card to show you,
and I tell you, it was a lot of fun to make!


I used two papers from Poppydesign.
I chose them because they matched the image so well,
but I struggled really hard to find other things to match it.



Tilda was colored with Distress Reinkers.
I smudged some Gesso over it to make if look a bit older
and lighter. I also used Star Dust stickles on her, on all the dies,
and on the flowers.


I used three dies from Magnolia. A star, leaves and a swirl.
I used some seem binding ribbon, and angel charm, and the two
brads are from Making Memories. 



I used a ribbon from WOK, a ribbon, mesh and pearls from Ribbon Girl.



The pearl detail on the bow is also from Ribbon Girl.
Gosh, I love those "bases" for the pearls etc. 


I struggled a lot to find the right flowers. Suddenly I founds some
gorgeous Prima roses that I think I got in my calendar last year.
They haven't matched anything I have made before, but now they
where just the right colors. They where just too big.
So except for one, I took off a few layers of the flowers to make them smaller.
I also used tulips and roses from WOC. 



This is the backside of the card. I made it a single page card,
because I didn't have enough paper to make it a fold card.
I used two of these new larger heart doilies I just got. 


I realize now that I forgot to use a sentiment,
so strictly this does not have to be a Christmas card, but that
is what I was thinking when I made it. The angel makes it Christmas,
I think. ;)



Another show of the snow. THIS looks like Christmas,
with snow lying on the trees. I took this picture yesterday,
I actually went skiing! Gosh its hard, but good exercise.
Think I'll go skiing today to, the weather is lovely!

Got the sniffles?

I made another Kleenex cover, and I have several more to make.
Yesterday I even started to ink up a few images,
and I'll try to make some cards today.
Hopefully the drought is over. :)

Sorry about the messy images! I don't have a good place to
take pictures of larger creations. Guess I should buy that photo tent I'we
been wanting for a while now, because soon it wont be much daylight here at all. 


The paper I have used is from Pion. Love the color of it!
This box is intended for my uncle, so I tried to make it not so feminin. 


This time I used some flowers. The colors I chose was inspired
by another one of the papers in this series. 



The bottle is from Panduro, and inside it is a piece of the same paper
that is on the box. The flowers are from WOC. 


The berries are from Storyteller, I think. 


The lace was a gift, and the button is vintage. 


I got a few questions about how I made the last box.
This is how I cut the paper, I even added the strip at the bottom that
I don't use. So I only have to use one sheet of bazzil, and possibly one
sheet of design paper, that depends on the pattern on the paper. 



This is how it looks from the bottom. There is no bottom,
so its just a hollow cover that I put on the box. That makes it easy to change the
kleenex box, but it is still quite solid and easy to grab. I know that,
because I've had a box like this in my living room for more than a year. :)


A bit of a follow up on the snow picture.
The weather have been so terrible, it has been almost stormy for days.
Rain and snow and hail and sleet.
Yesterday it cleared up for a while, so Sofie and I snuck out and made a snowman.
I haven't done that in so many  years, but I think he turned out quite handsome. ;)

Christmas Kleenex

To all my followers, I just want to say I am so sorry!
I have been a terrible blogger lately.
I have just been going through this scrap-drought,
and in between school, a bit of work, and working out,
I just didn't have the time or energy to scrap or blog.
I just didn't want to either.

Yesterday I finally got this wave over me,
and I made this Kleenex cover with  my daughter hanging over me.
We had a real nice time together.

I have decided to make a few of these to give away this Christmas,
so I really hope the drought is over.


Winter suddenly came, so the lighting was bad.
In order to get a close to normal shot, I had to put my box in the window.
I used Christmas papers from Inkido, I just love them!


The ribbon that goes around the box I believe was a gift from some
sort of swap. The seem binding ribbon is from WOC.
I used my Martha Stewart Snowflake punch, and covered the snowflakes
with Icicle Stickles, and a bling from Ribbon Girl in the center. 



I have to say, I love this piece of bling that I got from Ribbon Girl!
They have so much nice stuff! 


And at last I want to show you quickly what we woke up to today.
We had maybe an inch of snow yesterday, and it came down hard
all night (its still snowing like crazy!).
I hope you will forgive me for being such a crappy blog friend,
and I hope you are all having a wonderful week!

Pink for a Baptism

Today it is the first of October.
That means that it is time for a new sketch at CLP Challenges!
This is my take on the sketch.
It is a card for a baptism, they wanted it to be like my
standard cards with lots of details and girlie bits.

This is how the sketch look like, 
so pop over to join us!


 I think this image is from Mo Manning?
She is just so adorable. :)
I colored her with Distress Reinkers.
I used Vintage Photo and Antique Linen for her hair,
Tattered rose, Vintage Photo and Victorian Velvet for her skin.
Victorian Velvet for her clothes,
Victorian Velvet and Wethered Wood for her wings
(and Star Dust Stickles),
and Wethered Wood for shading.
I used some Liquid Pearl to make a little dust around her.


I used some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, and
a pearl-center from Ribbon Girl.



The ribbon and mesh are from Ribbon Girl.

I used letters from Prima and My Little Shoebox.
The lace is from Ribbon Girl. I also used some pompoms, cheese cloth,
Prima Bling and a charm.
The papers are from Maja Design and Inkido. 


This week I am at school,
so I`m sorry to say I cant visit your blogs until the weekend,
but I am looking forward to a great round of visits then. :)
Hope you are all having a lovely week!
Thank you for coming to see me. :)
