Good morning all you dolls out there ♥
Today it is my turn to guest at the wonderful Paper Nest Doll house and I have a very special card to show you. I am really so excited to hear what you think about it.
There is a little story behind this stamp..
Some days ago I told Christine, the wonderful owner of Paper Nest Dolls about my daughter Gabriella.
For those of you that don't know me that much,- Bella is my 5 year old and she is my sweetheart ♥
Gabriella is in kindergarden when I work and she loves it very much, and this is her last year before she start school next year. The last weeks we have been talking a lot about Lucia. In Norway we celebrate Santa Lucia on Dec. 13th and all the kids go in a parade in the street singing in the dark that morning with candles and long, white dresses. It is beautiful I can tell you... I cry every time..
Every year one of the oldest girls get to go in front of the parade with a crown with lights and all the girls are hoping to be the lucky one. My Bella too, and I know she will be so disappointed if she's not the one..
So Christine draw a Lucia Bella for me so I can make her something nice she can have to remeber that day, with or without a crown with lights.
I will publish on my blog what I made for her on the 13.th december but today I will show you a Christmas card I made with the amazing stamp. I guess it is unnecessary to say I love this stamp.
Hope you like it too. The wonderful image is called Christmas Bella and she will be released today and you will find her in the shop here.
As some of my Norwegian readers already knows, my favorite shop KREATIV SCRAPPING have startet to sell these high quality rubber stamps from PND and this one will probably come too as soon as it is made. You will find the rest of them here
Here is my card:
My Santa Lucia is coloured with Copics and I must say I just love to colour these images as they are both easy and fun in same time.
I have used flowers from WOC and Kort og Godt to match the lovely new Magnolia papers.
They are amazing those papers, I can tell you. Best Magnolia ever have made and I had to order a bunch...again ♥
The text is an older Christmas text from North Star Stamp, a Norwegian company.
I made a little Christmas scene inside my card using some Marianne Design dies.
I have used Collectables 1326 called Julehus and 1330 Julehus dekor
I made two houses and layered them with 3D cushions, and coloured inside the windows with Copic
I think this lookes really nice and I had totally forgotten about these wonderful dies...
Shame on me!

I love wooden embellishments and both the wonderful text and tiny trees was a gift from my kind and wonderful friend Tammy, bought in the UK.
I also got a new one called Wood Veneer from Studio Callico that I have saved for my next project ;)
Like so many times before I have used my Snowflake die from Joy!Craft
LOVE that die so much ♥

My Christmas Bella ♥
Perfect for her Lucia day and I hope you will come back her the 13th to see what I made for her.
Thank you Christine for making this wonderful stamp
and thank you for having me as a guest.
You will find the post HERE at the PND blog
I found a little video about Santa Lucia in Norway and some other traditions for Christmas if you wanna have a look.

Have a nice day everybody.
Take care
Hugs, Jill

Another NON Christmas card ♥

I am continuing making other cards than Christmas cards in between all the snow, bells and Christmas trees ;) I love making Christmas cards, but sometimes it is so much fun to do something else. I promised myself to try to use more colour once in a while and I must really say I have this time!
One of the reasons are these lovely new Paper Nest Dolls stamps I've got from their latest release.
Today I will show you the second card I made for the new punk release and this time I made quite a simple card with focus on the lovely image.
I fell in love with this cute girl, named Punk Ellie and I sooooo wish I had hair like this!
Hope you like my VERY colourful card
(remember I'm a cream coloured girl!! lol)
Papers from G45 this time. I have a pile of scrap papers and bits and bobs and I am trying to use them too. Can't only use new Maja Design papers all the time ;)


Love this edge punch. I've had it for ages. It's an Eek design punch

My doll is coloured with Copics:
Skin: E21-51-50-93
hair: E19, YR 24-14, E55-33-31
Shoes: E35-33-31
Clothes, Green: BG 78-75-72-71*(homemade)
Red: E19-98-13
Teddy bear: E44-43-41

KREATIV SCRAPPING now has some of these wonderful stamps in shop. This one was released yesterday and it takes some time before they have turned her into rubber.
You will find the digi stamp HERE
Have a nice day all. I'm heading to bed after my nightshift...
Nite nite ☻☻

Wow, two posts in one day!!
I would love you to scroll down and have a look at my GDT card for Paper Nest Dolls too if you missed it this morning.

This is one of my favorite stamps from Magnolia's fantastic Christmas collection, Winter Wonderland 2013.
We are now half through our challenge at Copic Marker Norge and we are having the brilliant theme of...
♥Christmas in blue and brown ♥
I love to make blue Christmas cards (well I like blue cards for every occation ;)) so I didn't struggle at all with this one. Sometimes (not often thow!) when I make a card, it just is SO easy to make it and this card was one of those cards. I am really on a Christmas roll now, hehe.
But when you have such a beautiful image and decorations to use, cardmaking is both fun and easy
Babble babble, ok, that is enough talk!
HERE is my card for Copic Marker Norge.
In The Snow Heart Tilda is coloured with Copic of course and I have tryed to match the flowers with the clothes. The gorgeous papers comes from Inkido's latest Christmas collection.
Kreativ Scrapping don't have these papers in store, but they have a whole lot more, so I am sure you will find something you like there. HERE is the paper section.

Skin: E21-51-50-93
Hair: E47-44-43-41
Trousers and hat: E81, W0 and blender, my favorite White combo
Shoes, gloves and shadow around image: W3-1-0
Sweather: BG 72-71(homemade)-70
I have cut the front smaller than the back and punched it with my snowflake Martha Stewart punch called Aspen Snowflake punch. So happy for buying this amazing toy ;)

Inside with a poem from NSS and the amazing papers on the right side couldn't be covered with anything. Aren't these lovely?

Back with some other Inkido sheet, oh so lovely that one too...

Can you see my Dutch Doobadoo products on the card?
They really lift up the design on every card and it's a real must have on my Christmas cards this year. I have used Trees, lanterns and corners. You find them all here at KREATIV SCRAPPING 
Head over to the CMN blog and check out the other girls wonderful work
Hugs to all of you my friends ♥
And can you really believe I've got almost 450 followers?
THAT is amazing and deserve a candy...
So stay tuned... to be continued...;)

Winter wedding - DT MAGNOLIA

Hi friends!
I have a new Magnolia card to show today.
I had an idea for a winter wedding theme for the latest Magnolia Ink and made a wedding card. As some of you remember from this summer I love making wedding cards, and this one was a bit different from all my other more summerly wedding cards.
I have merged together Run Away Bride (Special Moments 2013) and Old Swedish Church (A Christmas Story 2012) and coloured it with my Copic and added a lot of snow text and white dabber.
The text is also Magnolia.
Hope you like it:
Another white and blue card from me... Love to make blue cards, hehe

My Run Away Bride Tilda is running as she is late for her wedding.
A lot og snow and glitter ;)

A close up of my decorations.
Magnolia DooHickey, Angelwings and a snowflake dies from Joy!Craft.
Flowers from Magnolia and WOC

Maja Design papers, cheesecloth and pom pom ribbon from Melissa Frances.

I made some matching tableplace cards with the lovely mini Magnolia stamps Run Away Bride and Where is My Bride and these you can see in the latest Magnolia Ink witch is filled with fantastic winter cards and amazing Christmas projects from the Magnolia DT.

I was so lucky to get a fantastic Christmas present the other day from Magnolia and I must really say, I must be one of the most lucky girls around as I am on the most wonderful DT's.
I love them all, it gives me so much ♥♥
Thank you
Hugs my lovlies
