Wee Silver Fairy

Good morning stamp lovers! 

Todays posting from me will be filled with mixed emotions ;) This is my very last card as a may gdt for Wee stamps. I knew the month was going to come to an end eventually...dah! But I didn't expect the time to go by quit so quickly ;) lol! Im so happy and proud to have been invited and boy, I have had lots of fun! A little sad about my gdt period ending but I will be creating cards with the wee stamps in the future as well and I will see you all in land of blogs! 
So Id like to start this post by thanking all of those involved in making this month one of the best in my life - at least crafty wise. Thank you dearest Sylvia for having me and trusting that I would do a good job representing your company. Im so glad to say Ive gotten to know you a bit better and you are the wonderful person I thought you would be :) Thank you Mariska for being such an amazing dt coordinator and you've been making life as a guest very pleasant! Im proud to say I knew you from before so no big surprise regarding your cute personality. You are such a sweetheart! 
And last but surely not least Id also like to thank all of my very talented and stunning gals that has been guest designing alongside me. Don't miss out on their lovely work. Im sure you know most of them already but if not check them out in their blogs here: AnkeEliseJacqui and Shelley

Now I will stop my ranting and move on to my card ;) 
I chose to work with the amazingly sweet Silver Fairy. She is my all time FAV Wee image :) She is colored with my Copic sketch markers and Im pretty happy with the outcome. Practise, practise as all of my Copic coloring expert friends would say ;) Silver Fairy is available as a digi image in the Wee stamp store and in rubber via Whimsy stamps. (Useful links for us swedes is Mikaelas scrap in and Pysseltagen)
The papers are by Pion Design and available via Live and love crafts. Its from the Almas sewing room collection. Ive also used the rolled roses in lilac and the amazing flower sprays

Vintage Garden

Hi and very welcome here! 

Today its sunday and Id like to showcase this weeks creation for the Live and Love crafts blog. One of my absolute fav paper makers, Pion Design, just recently released an all new collection called Vintage Garden. I probably don't have to write Im sooooo in love ha? Well, Ill tell you anyways ;) As always there are so many amazing sheets to chose from so I absolutely had to have them all. Those of you that follow me probably have understood that I fancy pink and I was sooooo happy to see there is some a little more vibrant this time. 

The stamp I used is a Magnolia stamp released in the most recent christmas collection but I think she's very versatile and can be used for any occasion really. She is colored with my di pads on 300 g watercolor paper from The Langton. I have added stickles various places of Tilda with my fav Star dust. I have also used some Frantage in the color Shabby green. Its lovely, isn't it? The little banners are from the cut out sheet and so is that adorable little vintage picture I placed in the middle. The pink gingham ribbon is fairly newly stocked and its my first time using it. Thats also the case for that beyond GORGE lace with pearls!!! Oh my gawd...loooooove it! Totally shabby :) The shabby chic little cherub is an item Id like to add to ALL of my LLC cards but that would bore you so I haven't used one in a wee while, can you see I added it to the ribbon? 
If you'd like to take a closer look at what I used pls check the end of this posting as I have an Inlinkz gallery there. Just click the picture and it will take you right there. 

Im hoping you will like this weeks make :) 

Lots of love

More naughty puppies from Wee

Hi everybody! 
WHOOOOT WHOOOOOT! Or maybe WOOOOF WOOOOOOF would be a better idea cause Id like to welcome you all to see more of the utterly cute Wee stamps may release which is "Naughty puppies". Today Id like to showcase a stunner called "Puppy with snail". You can find him and his buddies in a digi set in Wee stamp store and also for us rubber lovers as a set in the The Whimsy stamp store

Although I think he is such a sweetheart I must confess I wish I had had more time creating with these sweethearts. Some of you might have heard my husbands uncle has been suffering from cancer that he was diagnosed with early february this year. Sadly he has been feeling more and more ill and last week he passed and its been a difficult time for everybody as yo can imagine. My crafty spirits hasn't exactly been at its highest note lately so I might have to give this adorable pups another go a little later on. Im proud that I managed to make the release though. I hope you will find this to your liking anyways. I have used one of the gorge sentiments that is part of the set here and isnt it just puuuuuurfect ;) Those pawprints are so darling. ;) He is inked woth Copics and placed on a spellbinder circular die. I have sewn all the edges and added some flowers from my stash. The papers are from Prima. This card is a bit darker than I usually make them maybe its a reflection of my mood? I was happy to hear both Sylvia and Mariska loved my makes so for that Im happy! Thanks! 

Lots of love

If you haven't heard of them they have an awesome range of products in stock and a lovely Krea Teja blog you just have to go visit. 

Finally I have had the time to ink up this cutie from Magnolia found here. She is colored with my di pads on 300 g watercoloring paper. The lovely frame is by Memory Box dies and is called Tiffany. I have also used a Magnolia doo hiceky called Lovely wings and then embossed them with Shabby pink frantage and added some rose color fragments to them. You can also see Ive added some of the Shabby white frantage around my Tilda image. The beautiful papers are from a Glitz paper pad 6*6 called Hello Friend. And now for my absolute fav Krea Teja embellishment the amazing ribbon from Maya Road in the color Mauve. Isn't it stunning? To finish off my list of products I have also used some distress ink distress crackle paint in the colors picket fence and tattered rose and the lovely heart charm with rhinestones.

I hope you will like my creation. Its so much fun to be a guest dt! Im hoping Thea and the rest of the talented girls in her dt will like it.

Student Tilda

Hello there and very welcome! 
Today is sunday and that means its my time to host the lovely Live and Love Crafts blog. I bet you cant wait to find out what we have been up to this week? On the other hand I think you already know since Im the last one to showcase my make ;) 
Yes, we have been taking turns to inspire from the collage below made by yours truly. All pictures is taken in my home. Here´s what it looks like: 

As you can see I have included all colors except the teal one. A little while ago I received an amazing email from a woman here in Sweden that asked me if I would consider making a gift set for her to give her daughter Nina when she graduates early june. Well, of course I would and this card is make 1. Make 2 will be a gift bag, to be continued ;) 

Besides the colors I have also inspired from the roses. As you can see little Student Tilda carries them in one hand too ;) 
For the first time Ive tried using (how did that happen?? Probably because Im sooooo into Sandra´s seam binding ;)) the organza ribbon and my gosh...Im sold! I LOVE IT!! 
I know I say that about something from the Live and Love crafts store every sunday but man...if you haven't shopped there yet and you try it once, you're going to be so hocked! ;) lol! 
Dangling from that very same ribbon in a piece of jute string is one of the pieces from Prima's Vintage Trinket pack...Ive been reluctant to use them because they are just tooo pretty and I want to keep them forever ;) 
All products used can be found via Inlinkz at the bottom of this post. 

Before I head off let me encourage you to visit the LLC blog to take a look at the amazing creations by my fellow teamies posted throughout the week. I love a good inspirational picture because the result are always so different from each other and theres as many interpretations as there is designers. 

Thank you for looking today! 
Eeeeekkk, I hope the receiver will like this...

Lace and flowers at MDUC

Time for another challenge with me and my utterly amazing friends in the Magnolia Down Under blog. This week we want you to add two of my fav embellies so no biggie because like all of us likes them . they are LACE and FLOWERS. 

I created an easel card, its been so long since I made one. I really enjoyed it because I soooo adore this Tilda as a clown. I inked her with Copics and added some shabby white Frantage around the edges. 
The lace is sooo my fav at the moment, it was a gift from my treasured friend, Elise. As you can see I added some paint to the edges to shabbotage it a little extra. Its DI crackle paint Picket fence and Tattered rose. Flowers are all by WOC, exept the lilys that is from Magnolia. The sentiment is so fabby and is from Stempelglede. 

I hope you like my creation and Ive inspired you to join us at MDUC
I hope you will stop by the blog to see the beyond wonderful creations by my teamies!

Well, mid may equals mid way! lol! Time for a little reminder.
There is still time to enter the current sketch challenge over at Crafting lifes pieces blog and heres the may sketch: 

Isn't it just gorge?

I made a card featuring another oldie but Goldie Tilda from Magnolia again. Im so enjoying those atm and telling myself I need to put them to good use. Im so in love with this adorable little bee. 
This card is made especially for a friend in blogland. I received the most amazing creation from Manuela after Ella was born and OMG! Time flies and I still haven't sent out personalized thank you´s to everybody yet...:( Im so ashamed! Don't worry, they are coming sweeties! Im hoping this has reached Manuela by now but Im afraid it hasn't since I just colored her up yesterday...oooops ;) lol! Wishful thinking might do the trick.

The tide always turns with Wee Shelley

Good morning everybody! 
This is my second posting as a gdt for WEE stamps illustrated by the hugely talented and very sweet Sylvia Zet. I made this sea themed card featuring the utterly sweet Shelley. She is available as a digi in the Wee stamp shop and as a rubber stamp in the Whimsy stamps store (amongst others). For those living in Sweden I can name a few rubber stamps stockists, they are available through Pysseltagen and Mikaelas Scrap in. Just follow my links. 

And what do you know? Sometimes Im a big surprise...she is inked with my Copic Sketch markers. And I can finally say Im happy with the result. I still have miles to go to be up there with my friends using this medium because they are such experts. ;) Unfortunately I was in a hurry to clean up my desk and didn't think to be as smart as some and photograph or name the markers Ive used...sorry. Here´s a close up of the lovely image: 

As always I added loads of stickles to the image. Mermaids are all about the glow right? 
The sentiment is from Magnolia stamps, so is those dies I used along one of the sides of the image (Thank you so much for them, Camilla, I treasure them very much!) and that cute to the boot Pirate Ship charm. I bought the shells in a local furniture store. Flowers are by WOC. Jute ribbon and the diamond (placed on the ribbon) Shelley found inside a treasure chest at the bottom at the ocean is bought at The ribbon girls. Ribbon is bought at Pysseltagen. You get a better idea of the items I just mentioned in the pic below. 

The beyond gorgeous lace was a gift from a treasured friend of mine, Elise. Thank you! 
With this card Id like to enter the current challenge with the cute ladies in the recently launched Copic Marker Sverige blog. The challenge is of course ;) to ink an image using Copics and also follow an amazing sketch. You can find the sketch in their blog. 

I hope you like my creation! 
Lots of love,
