Good morning to you all and I hope I find you all well today!
I want to show you what I have done with one of the new images from D'Arcy's Diaries.
The image is perfect for a mom to be, maybe for a babyshower or even for a newborn card.

I think the papers are so beautiful and sometimes I just want to make a little more clean card, so a few flowers, leafs, a key and a sentiment and the card is done!

And a matching back, I have put on my personal stamp, but forgot before I took the pic...

A weddingcard :)

Good morning!
I have made a weddingcard that one of my friends ordered.
This time I have tried something new, I have seen this type of card but never made one myself :)
No coloured image, that's not often!!

A recipe of love inside

I cut out a heart in white cardstock and added a heart doily and covered the whole thing with flowers. The result was gorgeous I think and the only stupid with it is that I don't have any white flowers left...
But I guess WOC has plenty!
I have used a lot of pearls, a key die and a handcut banner with the happy couple's name.
My flowers is a mix from my stash, and I think I have flowers from WOC, Kort og Godt, Petaloo, Prima and Papirdesign! Each and everyone special :)

Thats all for today friends
Have a nice day

TPS Milk carton

Hi friends

Today we are starting a brand new challenge over at Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge and this time we want you to be creative and do....
Shaped cards

I am not sure if I am following the rules, since it's a box, but it defintly is shaped *blink*
I have made a milk carton as a birthdaygift for a man. Inside you can put Choclate, movie tickets or a perfume. Your choice!
I have used one of the newest images from Tickled Pink Stamp and this one is called Apollo Lestat and come from the new collection named Lil Gods Collection. They are all fantastic!
I have found the tutorial on the milk carton here, but I have changed the size a bit, so mine is cut out of a cardstock that is 8 x 11"

I think the text is perfect for my card! Marit have made it, and you should check out her wonderful blog as she have some great digi sentiments(freebies!), does the most fantastic work and always gives me a lot of inspiration. Thanks Marit!

I have used such cool papers from Bo Bunny, et cetera collection, bought at Bikuben, like the most of my other stuff!
Ribbon from stash and the wooden button comes from Prima, so lovely!

This one is also a freebie text, but this time I have got it from Lynne, just coloured around it with Copics and also coloured my bling with Copics.

Copics used here is:
Skin: E13-11-00-000
Hair: E59-57-55
"Dress": E81, W0 and blender O
The red details on the dress is: N7, E19-07

Armour: YR24-21, Y11
Ground: E42-41, N5-3-1-0
