Cute Card Thursday Challenge 12

Denne uken går utfordringen på Cute Card Thursday ut på å bruke mønsterpapir.
Jeg fikk tilsendt tre stempel fra Hänglar denne uken, gjett om jeg ble glad!
Da jeg bor i Tyskland er det ikke så lett å få tak i Hänglar stemplene, men heldigvis har jeg en fantastisk mor som sender meg stemplene fra Norge.
Siden kjæresten har dratt hjem til Norge(buhu) skal jeg bruke helgen til å kose meg med stempling/kortlaging.

This weeks challenge is to use patternd paper on our cards.
"This week we are asking you to use patterned paper on your card in honour of our fabulous blog candy donated by Andrea of Kaboodle Doodles. She is offering one lucky winner, chosen at random next week, some fabulous downloads."
I received some lovely stamps from Hänglar in this week, and this was a great opportunity to use one of them.

My first award!

As I came home today(after having a bad day at work), I found a message from Jennifer on my blog!
What a pleasant surprise!
She has given me my first award!

Thanks a lot!
You saved my day:)

I should pass it on to three people, and my choice wasn't hard to make, all though I wish I could have given it to a lot more, as there are so many talented cardmakers out there!
The three blogs I simply love are the blogs of
Marlene, Anita and Beatrix.
So be sure to check out their blogs and their wonderful creations!!

"Would love to see your Torn/Tare work,This could be a simple little tare on a part of your work or the main focus, Have fun and just go crazy! Tare your wonderful Papers get them used!"

Beads of Glory

Challenge at Tilda & Co Challenge Blog
I've always been a perfectionist, and as I Sunday made the first card for the challenge Beads of Glory at Tilda & Co Challengeblog I wasn't quite satisfied with the way my card turned out.
Today I dropped by a pearl- and bead-store in the city where I found a lot of beautiful beads. I got all inspired and went home with a new idea for my card.

This is how it turned out...

show some beads on your creation either beads on a ribbon or string or just a beaded embellishments"

I wanted to make a very girly card this week, and I didn't think until today that a card could be too pink. But I was wrong:)
Therefore I added two toads to make it a bit more colourful.

Black & White

Challenge at Tilda & Co Challenge Blog

This week the theme is black and white.
Ideally no other colours should be used on our work.
Hope you'll forgive me, using a few more colours, as I made this card yesterday not knowing what this weeks theme would be.


Luscious Lime and Lilac

This weeks challenge at Papertake Weekly Challenge is another colour combination.
Luscious Lime and Lilac - or any shades of green and purple.

Here's my card...


First Somethings

"This whole endeavor is a first for all of us, so in keeping with the theme of "Firsts," our challenge this week will be "First Somethings." Challenge yourself to try something entirely new. Attempt a new layout or color combination or a new technique or fancy fold/card style that you've been wanting to try but have been putting off. You could also just keep with the theme of "Firsts" and make a card for a first birthday, a first baby, a first house, a first car, or any other first you can think of. Keep it as simple or as complicated as you'd like."

I made a first baby card, here it is...

Decoupage Magnolia's

Challenge at Tilda & Co Challenge Blog

This week the challenge is to decoupage with our magnolia stamps.

"This could be as simple as having a Tilda or Edwin, that is holding something, you then stamp that image out twice, cut out the item he/she is holding and then layer it up with foam pads or silicone glue, to give a 3d effect."

Here's my card...
