Wizard Tilda

Like I told you; I just had to have her!
My love for Magnolia`s and fantasy/Potter combined. ^^

The papers I have used are from Maja Design, I love those purple papers.
Have been holding on to them for a while, saving...
I used a pink tag that I distressed a bit, and my last two hat pins
from Whild Orchid Crafts. The swirl is from Prima,
and the tuille is from Kutt Ut.
The lace is from Ribbon Girl, I think,
and I used a big doily from Panduro. I colored it with some
purple mist and grey/silver Glimmer Mist. 

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the pink ones I cut from a
flower-ribbon. The flat pink one I think is from Prima, and the white
one I have no idea, thing I got it in a candy a long time ago.
I used stickers from My Little Shoebox, and covered them with Crackle Accents.
The frame is from Tim Holtz, I painted it with Acrylic Paint.
I also used a white feather from Panduro. 

I inked Tilda up with my Distress Ink.
My God, I really hate that Black Soot. I keep trying to color with it,
but it always ends up grey, and that perticular ink just does not behave
the same way the others do. Trying to get some shades in
and keeping the color blended is impossible!
But I really wanted to try to get her in a black robe,
just like on Harry Potter.
I used Diamond Stickles and Liquid Pearl.

Fairy Sofie

Scrapping is such a handy hobby!

This friday my daughters kindergarden had the annual carnival,
where all the kids dress up as something.
Normally the carnival is in February, but it was postponed
this year, and I did not think too look for a costume earlyer.
So on thursday when I went looking, there was nothing to find.
I was preparing to buy a little pirate-stuff, and just put together
a striped sweather and rip up an old pair of pants and tie a scarf
on her head to make a sweet little pirat,
when a nice lady at a store opened the box of costumes she
was getting ready to ship back.
I found this adorable angel-costume,
it was a dress and a set of wings. The dress was way to small,
but it was very elastic, so here is what I did:
I cut the skirt right off, so it became this adorable tutu instead.

I used my scrap stuff to create a magic wand out of a wooden star
and a set of chopsticks, pearl ribbon, pink pearls and a piece of tuille,
a rose and a silver bell to get a magic sound. 

The star was painted white and covered in white glitter,
then I used hairspray to make it stay on. 

The fabric I cut of the dress was used to cover this "not so pretty"
headband that Sofie got for her birthday. I decoratet with lace,  pearl ribbon and some
fabrik flowers cut from a flower-ribbon, and a round flower I made myself,
with some pink pearls for detail, to match the wand. 

Combined with a pink onesie and panty hose,
and some sparkle in her cheeks, she was ready to go.
I think she looks soooo adorable,
just have to brag a little. :) <3

Fairy Garden

I`m sorry about the terrible pictures,
but I made this card for the LOTV challenge,
and I had to post now, but I had lost the light when the card
was done. I`m SO looking foreward to summer, then it will always
be light when I need to take pictures of my cards.

The papers are from Pion Design.
I distresset the edges a bit with Vintage Photo.
I used my spellbinders, a doily, and a LOT of pearls.
Peachy pink is not a color I use much, so I did my best
to use a lot of the stuff I had lying around now.

The flowers are a mixture of Wild Orchid Crafts and Prima,
and I have used the last of my peach colored berries from Kort og Godt.
One pin is from WOC, the other I got from a sweet friend of mine. 

The lace is from WOC, and the sentiment is from Papirloftet.

I inked this super sweet Lili of the Valley Fairy up with my Distress Inks,
it was not easy getting the colors I wanted.
I also used a bit of Star Dust Stickles,
and White Opal Liquid Pearl. 

Lili`s little fairies challenge - Peach and Cream
Totally Gorjuss - Sketch
Papirdukkene - Pastellfarger

Thank you so much for visiting,
I hope you all are having a lovely day.

Butterfly Spring

Finally, a new card!
I had one almost done, but I was not at all happy, so I started again
and used the image on this one instead.

The papers are from Poppydesign. I love them so much,
have been saving, but I have decided to start using all my best papers,
so I can buy new ones later on. ;)

It may not show, but here I have a bow of seem binding ribbon.
I have used a mix of flowers from Papirloftet, Wild Orchid Crafts, Prima
and Kort og Godt. The bling swirl is from Prima, and
the brad is from Making Memories, 

I have used a piece of cardboard swirl, painted and stickled it up.
The butterflies are from Martha Stewart, I have used bling from
Kaizers Kraft and Diamond Stickles on them.
The pin is a gift from my dear friend Bonnie,
and I think I got the pearls from another sweet friend.

The ribbon is from Kutt Ut, and the buttons are vintage, except for
the pink one, witch is from The Ribbon Girl.
The lace was a gift, brand new. I used a piece of cardboard,
and the sentiment says "concratulations", its from Papirloftet.

Tilda is colored with Distress Inks, and I have used Stickles and Liquid Pearl.
The flourishes around the edges is another Magnolia stamp.
