Hello, thank you for taking a look at one of my cards today.

Well.. this is the “simple” card i made during the Easter weekend. We have decided to paint the hallway in the house and there was not much time for crafting.

Since i just used one sheet of Design paper i thought… well.. that should be a easy card… BUT turned out that cutting the shape with my Nesties took, i believe 4 trials until i had it just right. They constantly moved or the embossing was with the second run though the machine off. Princess_2_re

Anyhow.. if you want to do the same thing.. use some tape (backside) to attach the shapes temporarily to the paper, than cut and emboss and take the tape off. Voila… easy but i did not think about that the first time.

Other than that… to dress the card up a bit i have spritzed the papers with Tattered Angles Pearl mist (2 drops show on the chocolate frame :-( and painted Tilda’s dress, socks and gloves with Shimmerz paints.

Stamps: Princess Tilda

Papers: now that's something special… the paper has been designed by my fabulous friend Kristine Moldenhauer-Bisseth. hehehe.. i still can not get over that.. i know somebody who made this beautiful paper!!! This one is called “Cartas de Amor” and the color is Satin Pink. This line comes in all the trendy Nordic soft colors in addition to “Cartas de Amor” there is “Tuva” and “Martha”.

Tools: Martha Stewart  (border punch, medium and large flower pop-up punch), Nestabilities,

With Sympathy

Hello everyone.

Today i want to show you a card that i needed for my wonderful friend Jacque. Some of you might now that she and her family had to carry a loss of a beloved family member. I would love to give the Beddingfield family my heartfelt condolences.

Usually i must say i like to purchase sympathy cards just because it is such a sensitive situation and i do not want to set a wrong tone with colors or even image. However.. i know Jacque ADORES Magnolia stamps and for some reason i felt confident with the card i made for her.


The image is water colored and on the flower petals is some Stardust Stickles unfortunately it does not show very well. Stamping the sentiment on the side of the stem was an after thought.. i had fist the sentiment tucked on a tag underneath the bow but than the right side felt empty … boy oh boy my hands were shaking when i stamped it on… cause i could not take the image off the card anymore – once i glue it down with my score tape.. that stuff sticks :-)


Stamps:   Daisy can be purchased In Sweden in the Alvin and Alva section and the sentiment is by Stampin up
Papers: Basic Grey “Origins”
Embellishments: Stampin up, Making Memories, Stickles, Scor tape
(i use for my crafts the thin and  1/8) Coloring: Stampin up ink refiller (So Saffron, Barely Banana, Glorious Green, Going Grey)

{PS if you like to leave Jacque a little note.. i think she is feeling a little better now.. i have waited a bit with showing this card on my blog.

Hugs ya all

Chocolate Box w./ card

Printable box template

Hello and a wonderful day.

Well… this is soooo weird :-) iam finally able to show my projects and cards on my personal space while iam working already on the submissions for Magnolia ink 4!!! hahaha :-)

First i had not really and idea what to make but than all of a sudden my ideas just came and as we all who make something for the magazine hope that Magnolia will like and publish it. We only find out if Magnolia is  sending us a issue to look at it. Prior to that we do not know if we made the cut with our submissions.

So i hope that i can impress with my ideas and execution in the next round and you as readers will like it and most of it feel inspired what you can create with all the cute Magnolia stamps, papers and matching embellishments.

Box3 Today i would like to start with my chocolate box.

I had the idea to make this “Gatefold” kind of box and my hubby who is good with the computer made for me the template. If you hide your seam (opening) with a nice ribbon or lace you can not even see where the paper opens – you know even if you use sturdy cardstock it always seam to have some ugly gaps? Click on my photo by adding the ribbon the horizontal way – it does not show at all.

Here is how it opens and how it looks from the inside. Well.. Easter is over but it would be something that works for any occasion.


Since i had some time before the deadline for the magazine was, i quickly made a matching card to go with the box.

The card is only 5 x 5 which fits inside the box AND is the perfect size for the “Armor Tilda” with “envelope”.

All the layers of cardstock have been sprayed with Tattered Angles Pearl mist and of course i used Stickles.  


Stamps: 5 x 5 Card Armor Tilda, envelope and Sentiment from the 2009 Valentines line

Box: Bridsmade Tilda from the Wedding Collection 2010
script background stamp from the 2009 Valentines line

papers: Basic Grey 6x6

I believe most of you have seen my set already in Magnolia Ink :-) a extra thank you for swinging by today

Hippety Hop

Good morning everyone. Today i would love to show you a card i really like :-)

The card opens just like any other card but in the front i have created a “pocket” so i was able to tuck this “tag” behind Tilda.

The new background stamp with the bunny was just perfect for that and since you know how much i love “big hoppy” he had to be stamped in the inside of the card. Kind of like he just hopped away and we catch him there sitting.

The wavy border is traced first by hand and than hand cut. To crate the mat underneath the designer paper was not as difficult as it might look. First have a large enough paper, than just trace the wave first, than cut the bottom part off.


All images are water colored and to Tilda’s dress i added some glitter pen. On the background image and big hoppy’s whiskers i used Stickles instead.

Aren’t the papers gorgeous? It is really hard for me to cut into those lol.. i have gotten one pack from my wonderful friend  Jacque – it is called Blueberry Hill.


Stamps: all Magnolia Hoppy Easter Collection
