Two tildas in spring colors

I'm having some real issues with the new blogger today. Both my posts for today suddenly disappeared, so I have to try to recollect them as best I can....

Anyway... What I originally posted was that I made this cart for three challenges:

The lovely ladies at the  Midweek Magnolias wanted us to make a project wit two Tildas on.
Simply Magnolia: This weeks challenge was to use at least two magnolistamps.
Magnolialcious Challengeblog:  This wonderful inspirational picuture. Love the spring colors!.

I tryed to make a new kind of card this time, for me anyway.

I used papers from Prima Sun Kiss Collection, QK swirl and leaf dies, Martha Stewart punch. Charms, pearls and lace from stash.
Photographing this card wasnt easy...:)

The two tildas I used are: Tilda with wrapped heart and tilda sending loveletter.

I colored my images with this bunch of copics.

 Some details. I used a stamp from "Norsk stempelblad",  the words mean something like " sending you sunshine and lots of hugs..."

I left som room on the back for a personal message.

Thank you for looking. Hope you like it!

Dont forget to pop over to Magnolia Mania for their latest challenge, you can also read more about it in my previous post!

Miss you- vintage style.

Today I made a card using this scetch over at the Simply Magnolia blog. I was also inspired by the butterfly challenge at the Magnolia Stamplovers blog. Finally I tried to stick to blues and whites according to the Magnolia challenge blog. This is how it turned out:

I used papers from Pion design, bazzil, Martha steward board punch, roses, pearls, a butterfly punch, distressink, lace and a small paperbag (the vintage paper with the text behind the stamped image).

I masked the two stamps "Tilda with Hawaiian flower" and "shy rose Edwin". As usual I colored the stamps with copics- greys and blues this time.

Hope you like it! Thank you for visiting my blog!
