Twisted Easel card- New home

Please click HERE for my blogcandy!

Hello friends and followers,

It's Easter holiday and it's kind of busy with family and friends, lovely, but not much time for crafting! Here is another card I made for the February edition of Ett Trykk Magazine.
This is a twisted easel card.  You can find lots of great tutorials on YouTube.

I used Pion Design papers. The flowers are Kort og Godt and WOC, the Shabby Seam Binding was a gift from Sandy over at the Live & Love Craft Store, the Jute Ribbon and the home sweet home charm is also from the LLC store. The doily is from my stash. The die is a Qick Kutz/ Lifestyle craft Nesting doily circle die, and the sentiment stamsp are by Norsk Stempelblad AS and the swirl stamp I used around the edges are by Stempelglede. As always I distressed the edges with distress inks- this one is Vintage Photo.

The image is Welcome to a lovely home by Magnolia. I tried to color the image with  watercolor pencils (now there is a first...lol.. and probably last- not my thing, I had to get my DI's out to rescue the whole thing...lol). 

Hope you like it!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Hope you are all having a wonderful Easter weekend!
Thank you so much for all your lovely comments!!!

Take Care!

I made this card for the new challenge over at Anonyme Scrappere . Please stop by the blog to see what the challenge is and to see the gorgeous creations of the rest of the DT.
Jeg har brukt kraft kartong, mønsterark fra Pion Design, boksider fra en gammel bok. Blomstene er fra Kort og Godt og WOC og tekststempelet er fra Whimsey stamps. Postkortstemplene er fra Kort og Godt. Perler fra Papirdesign.

I used papers from Pion Design Alma's Sewing Room, some pages from an old book, La La Land crafts corner die and a Spellbinder die called Romantic Rectangles for the image. The flowers are WOC and Kort og Godt, the sentiment is from Whimsey stamps and the postmarkstamps are by Kort og Godt.

I masked an older Magnolia Tilda with a bench and inked it up with my copic markers. I used:

De nydelige blondene med bling er fra Live & Love craft store, chipboard, kakeserviett og charms fra skuffen min, blomstene er fra WOC og Kort og godt. Grenene er stanset ut av en bokside fra en cheryl lynn design die. Jeg har sydd langs kantene med symaskin og svertet med distress ink.

The lovely laces are from the Live & Love craft store, the chipboard, doily and charms are from my stash. I also used my sewing machine around the edges of the design papers. The branch die is by Cheryl Lynn Designs.

Jeg har brukt en die fra Magnolia, romantic lace, på den øverste delen av boksiden.
I used a Magnolia doohickey's heart romantic lace die on the top edge of the book page.

Innsiden er dekorert med Pion Design mønsterark, en Magnolia doohickey's die og en Spellbinder die.  Det lekre stempelet er fra stempelglede.

Birthday and blogaversary candy!

Hello my dear friends and followers!

Tomorrow, March 23rd is my 40th birthday (I can't believe it, i was just turning 30...lol), so I thought I would do some celebrating here on my blog, too!
It's also been a year since I "re-started" my blog (again- where did the time go?) and started making cards.

It's been a fantastic year and a tough year for me. Crafting and this amazing community of cardmakers and crafters have been a wondeful escape and comfort when times have been rough. 

I feel so lucky to have learned to know so many wonderful people and I want to thank you for all your love and support and the inspiration you give me every day! 
Your comments and kind words have made my days so much brighter! 

This is why I would like to give one of you a 
$40 gift voucher to spend in your favorite crafting store!
(in your own currency- open to my international followers too).

All you have to do is be my follower (blogger, networked blogs or bloglovin)
(please don't follow me just to win- only if you like what I do!)
and leave a comment to this post.
I would love it if you put this photo in your sidebar and link it back to me, but it's not required!
No candy only blogs!

I will draw a winner on April 23rd.

Thanks for joining my celebration!!!

the flowers are Kort og Godt, and WOC, the pearls are Melissa Frances, the corner die is from La la land Crafts and I also used Spellbinder dies and Martha Steward punch- around- the- page. I distressed the edges with Walnut Stain distress ink.

I made the bookcard inspired by many bloggers and my own experience. If you need a tutorial, you can find one here at my DT colleague's blog: Wenches Kort og Papir.

The image is the 'Tilda sending loveletter', I colored it with distress ink pads and markers.
Colors used: Vintage Photo, Tattered rose, Antique Linen, Dusty Concord, Black Sooth, Peeled Paint. 

 The sentiment means "dear mother" and it's from Norsk Stempelblad AS.

That's it for today, I'm off to dive into my crafting stuff now...lol...
