DT Tickled pink stamps Lil Perfect Match: BLOGHOP

Welcome to the Tickled pink stamps BLOGHOP for the amazing Perfect Matches stamps that is released NOW!! Click the link - Go get your own ;) Love this fabby idea of matching them up and yet they´re made to look gorgoues as singles too! Kellie , the lovely and generous owner and founder, wants us to tell you these images will be added to digi week in june for those of you whom prefers working with those.

I f you arrived here from Kylie Browns amazing blog you´re on the right track. If not youmight want to click your way to the beginning which is at Amy´s place.  If you should get lost on your way you can always head to the  TPS Blog were all names should be listed in the right order ;) That´s also where you are to stop and finish of commenting to reach the goal at the end ;) We´d all like to know which one is your fav stamp from the release.

I made a card with the ever so gorgoues Lil Perfect Match Lolita PirateLylah! I think she´s beyond cool! She´s got that fierce attitude and still she´s kind of cute ;) All wrappred up in one ;) She is the perfect match to another cool stamp: Lil Allsorts Pirate Frankie.
I placed her togheter with some fabby papers from Panduro Hobby (it´s been ages since I shopped something there) and a charm from Magnolia - of course it´s a pirate ship. The skull is actually a piece of grunge board from TH that I have painted with TH di´s crackle paint Picked fence. I mixed it up with some more cute accesories like the small bows and flowers and made it kind of "go" with the image.

This is what you may win if you hop along: One full set in Rubber and one for one winner full set in Digi, just the release not the matching couple/s from previous releases.
Besides these amazing prizes I know Kellie has added some extra goodies for all of you along the way..hidden candies are found a little here and there..;)

Now time flies by when you´re having a great one so now it´s time for me to send you off to another one of my gorgoues and talanted friends, Stephanne. I´m sure she will treat you to something utterly yummy!

DT Magnolia Down Under Challenges #97: Christmas in may

Yay! Time for another challenge over at  MDUC again :)
This time we´d like you to create something with christmas in mind. So time to dig out those Maggie christmas stamps and dies and being creative with those :)

I had this matchbox laying around screaming for me to alter it! ;)
So said and done I added some cs and Magnolia patterned papers from last years "A merry little christmas" collection. And yes: good news! You are not in need of glasses! ;) I have ACTUALLY done something in red. I love red and I adore all of those red creations I see in my friends blogs but I´m a total loser at it! It´s the colour I dread working with the most. At the same time I also want to create something beautiful in red so I asked a friend over this past weekend and we had so much fun talking and crafting... Well..I´m ashamed but this altered matchbox is all I managed to put togheter in all of those hours! That´s what happens when I think about going with red...;) This time I´m actually happy with how it turned out in the end though and that feels good :) Don´t count on seeing something red in here before december ;) He,he,he!

If you need some more inspiration to get started using those christmassy stamps and embellies I KNOW my wonderful and extremily talaned teamies has some great creations to show you over here.

Adorable ginger bread Tilda is coloured with distresser on 300 g watercolourpapers. Added lot´s of stickles star dust to her - as usual. Why break a trend that working for ya? ;)

The backside of the matchbox. I have used the pennents die from Whiff of joy and the fence die from Magnolia. The alphabeth stickers says: GOD JUL = MERRY CHRISTMAS. It´s a good thing both words are spelled with three letters in swedish ;)

Cardbox a la (the worlds best) Dena

A little while back a recieved the most gorgoues happy mail from the US and my very treasured friend, Dena. She made me a real stunner! (Well..everything she creates is frikkin stunning ;)) She calls it a card box. You can find the amazing box she made for me here. I can´t stop looking at it, feel so lucky to have it in my collection. Now I´m sending of a little something for somebody ;) and I want them to get the same feeling so I gave it a try ;) 

The gorgoues papers are from an older Maja Design collection called "Mina vänner"= my friends. Thought that suited just fine :) I have used my absolute fav stamp from Magnolia again called Hello Butterfly. It is part of the latest release. I hear there´s a new one coming soon! Can hardly wait ;) 
The box has a theme of butterflies, you can find it all over ;) 

I´m hoping my friend will treasure this a lot! Or at least like it ;) Maybe even love it a bit :)  

I´d like to enter this card here:

Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar challenge blog #106: Make it lacey. (I have some bronce lace hidden undernieth the image ;))

Mini Tildas wishing a happy birthday!

I´m so sorry to have to bore all of you whom have already seen and commented on this card before ;)
As a lot of you, my darling friends, know Blogger has had some serious issues and for a lot of us that meant losing all posts that went live yesterday. This post is one like that. So.. here I go again ;)

I have a treasured friend in blogland that had a birthday recently but didn´t tell anyone. Its a good thing you can see it on Facebook ;) I´ve sent her this card today :) Maritha: just pretend you can´t read your name in the upper right corner ;) He,he,he! Act surprised when it comes knocking at your door ;)

This is the first ever card I have made using images from the Magnolia Mini World. These were actually a gift from another very dear friend of mine, Dena. Thank you so much hunny!
I sincerilly doubt it that you have missed out on her gorgoues blog filled with superinspiring creations, but if you have you should really take a look now! 

I have created this card after a sketch I found at Mindys  place. It´s the second  from the top. Inspiring ha? I´ll definately use more of them, think they are awesome. :)

I adore this sentiment from Stempelglede. It is like Dr Phil, it says it like it is. The power of the mind and positive thinking is something that has become more and more important for me over the years.

Thank you so much for checking in with me today :)

I have used adorable Melinda blowing kisses from the Guardian angel collection illustrated by Elisabeth Bell. Love those ;)
She is placed on a giftbag I altered, I have no idea whom will recive it yet so I havent done anything special to the backside yet. Only dressed that to in matching papers. My wish is to add a suitable sentiment later.

DT Magnolia Down Under Challenges #95: So crafty!

Time for another challenge with us ladies in the MDUC dt :)
First of all I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you whom participates in our challenges! We are having so much fun visiting your blogs and being inspired by your lovely work

This week our challenge theme is SO CRAFTY!
That means you need to include craft cs in somewhere on your card/project. You can stamp and ink on it or you can use it like cs. Anyway you prefer! Besides this you need to use a Magnolia stamp and/or a doo hickey die on your creation.
We are being sponsered by Shop Bron this week and entering might make you the winner of King Tilda, both original and mini!! :)

Our little daughter named Signe is celebrating her fourth birthday on may 22:nd and I have made this card for her. I have also made another card before using the adorable Mollie Mittens from TPS but this one will be from my parents. My mother was pretty specific about her wishes and a criss cross with a "rowdy" looking stamp. I consider my girl to be somewhat of a princess who adores pink and don´t get me wrong, she loves pink but she also is afraid of nothing and throws her self into whatever comes to mind. ;) So a pirate princess was my choice!
I have seen a couple of lovely gals trying to ink on craft and they do it very well! Of course I wanted to do something special fo my girl so I decided to try it. Some of you know I only ink with distressers since about a year but you can also imagine how hard and not likely getting a good result that would be. So I had to use my Prisma pencils again. O boy! Have I forgotten how to use those! ;) I´m actually very satisfied with my result so I´ll definately try this again :) So much fun :)

Pretty please: DON´T MISS out on the gorgoues work made by my teamies! These girls are stunning cardmakers so if you don´t check it out on our blog you´ll be sorry later ;) He,he,he! Jokes aside, if you´re looking for more inspiration and maybe desciding if you wan´t to join in visiting the blog is a great idea! :)

I´m hoping I´ve inspired some of you to join in :) HUGS
