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.

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

Spellbinders, Tim Holtz, Marianne Design, Memory Box and Magnolia
Paper from an old book, flowers from WOC, pearls, ribbon (coloured with promarker Satin)

My daughters birthday

Here's the card I made for my daughters birthday. She's got a thing for purple, so it had to be a purple card.

 Stamp from Tickled pink. Used a Magnolia border-die to frame the card. 
 Banner-die from Magnolia. I've used a TH-die to make the letters. Attached pattered paper on a chipboard  and cut out the letters. Charm from Kort and Godt.
 The roses were white, coloured them with homemde glimmermist (a mix of dusty concord and milled lavender and perfect pearls). The white flowers got a mix of just water and perfect perls to give them shine without changing their colour. Works sooo well, I love this homemade glimmermist-idea! :D
Added a bit of white paint on some of the flowers.
Image coloured with distress inks. The tag behind the image has a happy-birthday text from NSS on it.
