A vintage bookcard

Hello there!

I wanted to share my latest creation with you - it's a bookcard made for one of my colleauges. She turns 60 in a week, and I wanted to give her a little gift before she's heading for the Canaries to celebrate ;)
I wanted to make a card in soft "springy" colors and I found some papers from Prima that was perfect for what I had in mind.
I'm entering the following challenges with my bookcard:

* Vintageudfordring - Bookcard made by Sannes tutorial
* Flutter By Wednesday's - Open challenge
* Nord-Salten Hobbyklubb - Vintage with a hint of pink
* RRR Challenge - Spring Theme

The finished box.  Image from a cuttingpaper. Butterflies from Karen Marie Klip - embossed with bronze embossing powder. Papers from Prima named Poetry, carton from Ursus - edges are scraped and inked with Distress Ink Vintage Photo. Stamps from Kreativ Hobby, embossed with bronze embossingpowder. Pink roses also from Kreativ Hobby. Rosebuds, brad and halfpearls from Kort og Godt. Chrysanthemums from Storyteller. Doily - embossed with brown stonelook embossing powder from Kort og Godt

The sweet girlie and the embossed butterflies

Flowers flowers...

.. and more flowers!! ;)

The stone look doily and some pearls ;)

The book from aside - as you can see I haven't used ribbons to close the book - I've used magnets :)

The back of the book - with embossed thickeners :)

The inside of the book. Tag from Ursus, decorated with stamps from PaperArtsy, so are the corner stamps in the "giftroom". Other stamps from Kreativ Hobby. All stamps are embossed with bronze embossing powder. Sticky paper ribbons on the box edges. Soft yellow sheer ribbons on the tag.

The tag is fastened with transparent photo corners :)

The inside of the box - I think these ribbons are so sweet :)

Ready to be given away to a chocolate lover ;)

I hope you liked my bookcard - I had so much fun making it! :)
I wish you all a fab weekend, tonight I'm going to a local seafood party with my husmand, my sister and three brothers, my parents, some of my cousins and many of my nearest friends. I'm so looking forward to it - eating LOTS of delicatesses that the sea brings to us :) (I loooove seafood!!)

One more LOTV card :)


Wow, the weeks are flying! Where does it fly ? I don't know - I only notice that the calender is soon turned over to March and my 30th birthday is just a few weeks away :)
Well, I wanted to share a card with you. I wanted to make a card for this week's LotV challenge - but I love every color sooo much - I can hardly pick a favorite... That's why I thought it would be perfect to combine this challenge with this week's Rainbow color theme at Flutterby Wednesday's!! ;) But I added limegreen and turquoise, because I think maybe that might be one of my fav color combos...?! *lol*
My card is a birthday card made for the following challenges:

* Friday Sketchers - Sketch # 142
* Lili of the Valley Thursday Challenge - Your favorite colors
* Flutterby Wednesday's - Rainbow Flutterings
* A Spoon Full of Sugar - Birthday Wishes

The finished card

The Storyteller flower is glued on top of the bling flower - and I've added some limegreen flowers and some pearlpins too ;)

Look, isn't she the cutest?! She's got rainbow wings - and I've added Stickles to her skirt, wings and on the pearls - it's a little hard to see that on the pic...

The card from aside

The inside of the card - aren't these papers cute?!? The flowers and the circles are cut with Nellie Snellen dies on my Cuttlebug ;)

An old broken necklace can be used as an embellishment ;)

The roses from Papirloftet

LOTV card for a friend

Hello there!
I got my new Lily of the Valley stamps two days ago. I just couldn't wait to start color them up - they are FANTASTIC!! I couldn't afford more than 5 because I have to pay my Education loan this month, but I wanted to order them all! (You know, I REALLY struggled to find out which one to choose...) Guess I have to make a new order soon... *lol* I ordered a couple of stamps from the latest release, and some of the "good old ones" :) Here are some pics of the first finished card, which goes to the following challenges:

* Friday Sketchers Blog - Sketch #139 (I turned one of the squares a little, I hope it's okay...)
* Anonyme Scrappere - Bright pink and white
* Basic Grey Challenges - Flower Power
* Nord-Salten Hobbyklubb - Valentine's card with a heart (in the dp's)

My finished card - you can see that the flowers in the dp's are filled up with hearts, I think it's a fantastic detail in these gorgeous papers :) But hey, wait! NO MACHINESEWING?!?! *lol*

Isn't she the most adorable girlie you've ever seen?! This is definitly my fav LOTV stamp :)

The brad - and the ribbons my mum bought me in Germany ;)

"For you, my friend"

My homemade flower. Since I didn't have a bright pink flower, I had to make one on my own. I sprayed some paperflowers with Glimmer Mist and folded them together, let them dry and added some glitters :)

The inside - I think the dp's are so beautiful that I didn't have to decorate the inside - I've only added some glitterglue on the edges of the writing panel

Size: 6" x 6"
Papers: Basic Grey Bittersweet - Ganache and Rocky Road
Stamps: Lily of the Valley - Rosie Posy
Coloring: Watercolorpencils
Others: Brad, roseleafes and halfpearls from Kort og Godt. Distress Ink Vintage Photo. Glitter glue.  Paperflowers. Glimmer Mist Sweet Pea from Tattered Angels.
Techniques: All papers are distressed and inked with Distress Ink

I hope you liked my card, and I would love to get some comments on it if you're here :)
Today is my day off from work, I was asked to work extra at school, but I had to say no because my three kids are all sick. But it's OK to have one day off, since I'm working this weekend too. It can sometimes be hard to combine being a mother to three small kids and working fullpart too...
Well, thanks for visiting. Wishing you a great day!

Lots of love,
