Sketch, babycard with bling!

Hi  bloggers!
It's been a busy week, but finally I found time to make a card today. I've been blog hopping over at Totally Tilda for some baby card inspiration. Also the Lovely hAnglar & stAnglar and sweet Magnolia blog had a great sketch this week. Finally I 'blinged it on' with the Midweek Magnolias.

Here's my baby card:

I used Pion design papers, Quick Kutz lace circle die, Magnolia doohickeys: scalloped tag and scalloped stitch lace, flowers from iamroses, charm. bling and lace from stash. The sentiment stamp and the post-stamps are from Kort og Godt. The sentiment means "congratulations" in Norwegian.

I colored my Magnolia Baby Tilda with copics:
Hair: E44-42-41, Skin: E13-11-00-000, R20, Clothes and pacifier: R23-22-20, Butterflies and crown: C3-1-00, Shadow/background: B60 and C1.
I added some silver to the crown and butterflies with Tim Holtz Distress stickles (picket fence).

Some details. I painted the flowers with liquid pearls (white opal) to make them stand out a little more. And for once i DID NOT distress the edges of the PP at all! So to me the card looks a little "naked" but i didn't think it matched the baby theme... lol.

Here's the card again, some stuff on the inside too. Hope you liked it!

I'll be back tomorrow with my Just Magnolia DT card!

Wedding card- whites

It's wedding season here as summer is getting close, so i thought I'd make a wedding card today.
I challenged myself to the Midweek Magnolia challenge this week:  Big white space. I also want to enter my card to the
Bearly Mine challenge: #35 Dies. I used Quick Kutz lace circle dies and Memorybox heart dies.
and finally to Copicmarker Norge : Bryllup.

I used papers from Papirdesign, and white bazzil. I used Martha Stewart punch, Quick Kutz circle lace die, Memorybox heart dies, Magnolia doohickey, flowers form and Kort og Godt, lace and pearls from stash. And of course my sewing machine. I did some embossing on the image paper, flower stamps from Prima. I had to distress just a little bit on the edges- couldn't help myself:o)

I colored the Magnolia Bridal Couple from the Wedding Collection with my copics. I used W9-7-5-3-1 for the dress and suit, RV91 and V000 for the flowers, Skin: E13-11-00-000 and Hair: E47-39-35-31-30. And of course my blender.... always:o) 

I painted some liquid pearl on the flowers- doesn't show very well in the pic, but looks kind of nice in real life... You can get a glimpse of the embossing here too.

The inside job! A wedding card does need a nice inside.

Thanks for stopping by! Love it if you leave a comment!
Have a lovely week- hope you get some ink on your fingers:)

Bingo and Yellows

I've been playing with my yellow copics today.  For the bingo challenge at TOMIC, i chose Yellow- pearls- shaped card (no squares or rectangles). For this weeks Midweek Magnolias the challenge was to make a monochrome card. So I tried to combine the two.  I also got to color this very cute little Tilda for the first time- loved it!
Here's the card:

I used papers from Prima, Quick cutz dies (circle and swirl), flowers and butterfly from, pearls and lace from stash. Tim Holtz distress ink (vintage photo) for distressing the edges. And finally my sewing machine.

Here's my lovely little Tilda. I colored her with copics. Hair: E44-42-41, Skin: E13-11-00-000, suit: YR24-23, Y21, blender, Wings and shoes: C3-1-00. Hearts RV93-91, V000

Some Yellow details. Flowers and lace.

More details- the paper is actually yellow, even if it looks kind of green in the pictures.

I made a step card, this is what it looks like folded.
Hope you like it!

Thanks for stopping by!
