Another birthday-card

Another pinkish card from me today. I had to make something for my niece whos birthday is this coming weekend, and when I saw Delightful Challenges had a perfect colour-combo this week, and Magnolia Down under came with their challenge of "image in black and white"... I could't resist. Sketchy colors provided a sketch I really loved, and the card practically made itself.

I really, really enjoyed making this card. I actually really like pink against black, although I've made a lot of pink cards lately. I hope my niece will like it too.

Juletag

Jeg har laget en juletag i dag også! Synes jeg har kommet godt i gang med julekortene i år :)

Dette er en av 3 bidrag til Hjertebodens juleblogg denne måneden (jeg mangler bare å lage et julekort til før månedsskiftet - og DET skal jeg klare!).

Og endelig et kort med andre farger enn rose (vel, nesten...), og ikke minst med favorittfargen min beige! De er så vakre, mønsterarkene fra Pion :)

Båndet var skinnende hvitt, så jeg farget det med distress ink - vintage photo og glimmermist for å få litt glitrende effekt.

Happy birthday... again

Another really pink birthday card from me today. I just finished it, and fosterson will give it to a girl in his class later today.

The first christmascard in 2012

I never finished the christmascards in 2011, and decided to make them thoughout 2012 to avoid the stress of not being ready.

This is my first christmascard this year:
 Hard to see, but I've embossed the edges of the image with Rangers holographic embossingpowder. The stamp used is a snowflake from Magnolia.
 Still practising with my distress inks. It's HARD! I think this is by far the best result I've had since I bought my refills. I love colouring with them, but I struggle badly with shadows.
I have quite a few hobby-related new year resolutions this year, and one of them is to use something new and unused every time I use a card (I've bought a lot of stuff, and used only a fraction of it). New stuff used on this card: The flowers, and the slim edge punch. It's the first time I use the "postcard"-stamp (Kort og Godt), and the snowflake stamp (Magnolia) too.



Size: 
6" x 6"
Paper: 
Cardstock: white
DPs from Magnolia
Ink:
Archival ink - jet black, distress ink - vintage photo (used on all edges)
Stamps:
Magnolia, Kort og Godt.
Colouring:
Distress inks
Other:
Spellbinder dies (squares), stickles - star dust, liquid pearls - white opal , pearl ribbon from WOC, flowers from WOC, crackle paint - picket fence (on the snowflake charm), charms, leaf-dies from Magnolia, tag-die from Magnolia, pearls, EK Slim edge punch dotted scallop, embossed snowflakes with Rangers - holographic (around the image).

Challenges I'm entering my card in:
*TOMIC - Sketch + blue, white and glitter
* Just Magnolia - Anything goes, with the option of new year and/or use something new (not exactly a secret that I chose "use something new"...)
Magnolia Down Under - Anything goes
* Kort O Mania - punch it! Dies it! Cut it! Use punch og dies on your project
* Little Darlings Challenges - Cold
* Kortgleder - Blue and white winter
