Saturated Canary

I made a quick retreat to my hobbyroom yesterday and started on this card. I finished it up this morning, although I should have done some laundry or prepare for new years eve... :D

I've used this cutiepie from Saturated Canary (rubber stamp), and she's coloured with promarkers.

 I've used a flowerpunch, pearls and cheery lynn butterfly-dies. A magnolia die up in the left corner with the text "congrats". I coloured some seam binding ribbon with distress stain 'broken china' and curled it up until dry. I also used lace and white satin ribbon that I coloured with distress stain 'broken china'. I don't seem to be able to make a card without my beloved liquid pearls...
 The branches are chipboard from Dusty Attic, and I sprayed them with glimmermist 'tattered leather' and painted some crackle paint 'picket fence'on them. I gave the balloons a layer of glossy accents.
Beautiful papers from Pion Design.

Challenges I'm entering my card in:
* Saturated Canary - picture inspiration (I got inspired from the beautiful colours)
* Kort O Mania - anything goes

Final christmascard

Reminder: Join in on my candy in celebration of my DT-spot over at Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge! :)

I think this will be my final christmascard for 2012...And I didn't even use a traditional christmas image! But, this cool girl from Kenny K fits the recipient so well, I had to use her. Besides, she's one of the 5 digistamps I won over at the Kenny K Krafty Krew challenges just before christmas, and I had to colour up one of my new stamps! :D

Image coloured with promarkers. I put stickles 'star dust' on her wings.

 Papers from Maja Design. The snowflakes and the Tim Holtz on the edge snow flurries are cut from kraft. I painted them with white gesso and added diamond glimmer mist. The flowers from WOC got som homemade glimmermist (made from distress ink 'aged mahogany' and 'vintage photo'. I also dabbed them with distress stain 'picket fence'. Berries and swirl from Magnolia.

 The inside. The panels on the left are only attached on each side, so I can slide som money behind them. This card also serves as a christmas present...
The back. Simple as always :)

Challenges I'm entering my card in:

* Delightful challenges - Anything goes
* Deep Ocean Challenge Blog - Santa is coming to town
* Nordsalten Hobbyblogg - Something new (my image is new, so is the snow flurries die)

Tim Holtz Configuration Print Tray

I've seen a lot of these Tim Holtz configuration boxes in blogland this fall, and I decided to make one for myself. I've used stuff from Tim Holtz, Prima, Melissa Frances amongst others. I've put a thin layer of white gesso paint over the design papers and the TH tissue tape.

Magnolia snowman

Here's a christmas card I made for a little boy who's very, very special to me.

The front is a shakercard, and I've used tiny, clear beads inside it. The star-tag is made with spellbinder dies, and I've used a stamp from North Star Stamps on it, which has a lot of christmas-related words. Used stickers alphabet to write the boys name on the tag.

Because of the gelatin window, I couldn't seem to show the effect, but I have put stickles - star dust on the snowmans cap.

 The inside is something I've never tried, but wanted to try.. it's a pop-up card! Quite a bit of work, but I really enjoyed making this one :)

 Everything's coloured with distress inks, and I've used papers from Maja Design.

Challenges I'm entering my card in:
* Nordsalten Hobbyklubb - Lag et 3D prosjekt
* Magnolia Down Under - christmas bingo (Snowflake, glitter/stickles and Doo-Hickey dies)
* Midweek Magnolia - when the snowman brings the snow

Magnolia gift-tags

A while back One Trykk had a challenge going of making tiny cards in the size 1 1/4" x 4 1/4". I had meant to join in and make gift-tags, but never got around to it.

Today I sat down and made the first four gift-tags. Using Mini-Magnolia, coloured with promarkers. Papers from Pion and Panduro. The red papers inside the red tags are from 3ndy Design.

The snowflakes are cut out using MS punch. I put on glue n seal and dipped them in white glitter to make them sparkle. These didn't take too much time, and I think they worked out nicely :) I used a slim borderpunch too.

Challenges I'm entering my card in:
* I love promarkers - anything goes
* 2 Sisters Challenge Blog - Christmas sparkle
* Papiravisen - anything goes

Magnolia winetag

Magnolia Down Under Challenge has "winetag" as their challenge this week. Good for me, because I have a few of those to make before christmas, and I haven't started yet! That is - until I saw that challenge ;)

And here's the result. And I'm sorry... none of us drink, so I didn't have any winebottles in the house. My Pepsi Max got the honours instead... :p

 Tilda is coloured with distress inks, and I made it a shakercard with small glasspearls inside. Used several dies, like spellbinders, Cheery Lynn doily-die, memorybox and dies from Magnolia. Papers are from Pion.
 The two small bottles are also Magnolia-stamps. I coloured them with my promarkers (I know.. but I had already put my inks away...), and wrote the words "merry christmas" on them. 
 The backside
A small tag with a christmas-stamp from Kort & Godt hidden behind the image.

Saturated Canary Christmas

I've bought a few of the new Saturated Canary rubberstamps, and here's a christmascard I've made with one of them.

I've followed the sketch over at the Saturated Canary challenge blog, and made the card in traditional red and green colours.

 The pearlstring is homemade, I found a great tutorial on how to make them here, and it was a lot of fun. I think I'll be using these quite a bit on my cards in the future. Just need to practise how to make them some more :)

Magnolia bookcard

It's my grandmothers 85th birthday, and here's the card I made for her. Since it's a bookcard, it also has the function of being a giftwrapper for earrings and necklace :)

The paper with the gothic writing is from an old book from 1883. It hurts a bit every time I tear one of the pages... :)

The letters and numbers are made out of 3 layers glued on top of eachother. The edges are distressed with walnut stain, and I've put on crackle accents on them. I really wanted a 3D-effect on them :)

6" x 5"
Kraft and vanilla
Pion Design
Distress inks, archival ink - black
Distress ink
Spellbinders, Tim Holtz, Marianne Design, Memory Box and Magnolia
Paper from an old book, flowers from WOC, pearls, ribbon (coloured with promarker Satin)
