A Christening card with Sleeping Baby Tilda

Hi Everyone!

I got a comment on my blog earlier last week, from a woman who wanted me to make a card for a Christening she was about to attend. This is actually my first commission outside my acquaintance, so guess if I was happy!? :D

Here's the card!

I have used Sleeping Baby Tilda for this card and I colored her with Distress Ink Pads. I have used Frantage Enamel Shabby White around her and glittered her angelwings with some Crystal stickles. The flowers are form Wild Orchid Crafts. In the bottom you can see a little glass bottle and I have put a little piece of paper in it with the girl's name, Ellie. I have tied a ribbon around the bottleneck and put a tiny feet-charm in it. Also, for this card I have made handmade purple rose which is in the left corner! I have inked it with Dusty Concord Distress Ink and sprayed it with Perfect Pearl mist to make it shimmer.

I have stamped "På Dopdagen" (which means "On the Christening Day" in Swedish) with purple cateye-color and put some Perfect Pearl powder on it before it dried. The text stamp is from Vildastamps. In the left corner you see a a corner made out of clay, I just bought the Martha Stewart Frames Borders Starter Kit and LOVE it! Although I thought the clay would be a little heavy, but it's almost as light as feathers (almost!)!

Here's a better close-up at the embellishments. I have used a Martha Stewart punch for the white lace-like edge to the right. I have also sewed stitches by hand around the designpaper from Papermania "Summer bloom".

Thank you so much for stopping by, I wish you a very nice day! :)

Witchy Wanda in bright moonlight (DT Make it Crafty)

Hi everyone!

Today I am blogging a scene I made with Witchy Wanda and Eerie Scene! I went all in on this one and tried experimenting without any fear of how it would turn out. And then it turned out pretty great I think! :) This is on of my first scenes I've made ever and I can tell you that I am very excited to work this way!

This is my card for this week :) I have colored it up with Distress Ink Pads.

Boy, did I work with Witchy Wanda and the shading or what!? It was a great challenge to make her look "nighty" and I started out coloring her from dark (shadings) to bright as I usually do, but then I realized, something doesn't quite add up... So I started filling the bright parts with some Scattered Straw Distress Ink (yellowish color) and then it all just came together! I really feel I succeeded with the shadings and the warmth from the fired up moon.. :)

Here's the pumpkins, which I am very pleased with how they turned out. The camera doesn't make them fair enough, the colors are more intense in reality.

That's all ladies and gents! I hope I have inspired some of you to try out this gorgeous scene and the Wanda-stamp for the Halloween feast!

Take care now!

Happy birthday! (Saturated Canary Princess Rose Red)

Hi Everyone!

Today I'm back with a card with one of the gorgeous stamps from Saturated Canary, Princess Rose Red. I think she's adorable, don't you? :)

Here's the card!

And here she is, the beautiful princess.. I've colored her completely with Distress Ink Pads. I have stamped around her with stamps from Panduro Hobby.

Here's a corner I've made with paperclay and I colored it up with a little Inka Gold "Platinum" to make it shimmer. I didn't want it colorful since I wanted the beautiful designpaper from Papermania "Summer Bloom" to get more attention. The stamp "happy birthday" is from Some Odd Girl. I've chalked the edges with a little Picked Raspberry Distress Ink on the sign.

The white butterfly is cut with a die from Memory box and the swirls are cut with a die from Die-Namic.

That's all for day, hope you're having a great Sunday!!

A wedding card (DT Make it Crafty)

Hi everyone!
Today I am back and blogging another card for the fabulous FB DesignTeam of Make it Crafty! This time I have made a weddingcard, since I have been longing for to make a card with this beautiful bridal couple, that you can find here. :) I also used a background stamp, which you can find here.

This is my card!

I have stamped with a butterfly-stamp from Martha Stewart in paperclay and folded it a little. When dry, I only scrubbed a little ink from Distress Ink Pads, Spun sugar and Picked raspberry and finished with a little Inka Gold Platinum.

Here they are! The fabulous stamps from Make it Crafty :) I am so happy with how her dress and vail turned out, since I only colored with Distress Ink pads this time. I have cut the stamps with Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Eighteen and chalked the edges with a little Vintage photo-distress. I have used a glitterpen on both stamps to glamour it up a bit. The charm with two birds are inked up with a little Inka Gold Platinum and I've filled it with Glossy Accent.

Here is a close-up on the flower arrangement. I've used stickles on them, it's called Crystal from Rangers.

Here's a stamp from Stämpelkällan in Swedish, that means "For the bridal couple". I have chalked the edges with Vintage photo-distress. I have also sewed stitches by hand on the design paper from Panduro Hobby.

That's all for today!

My first DT-card for Make it Crafty

Hi everyone!

This is my first DT-card for the stamp-brand Make it Crafty! I got accepted as a member of their new fun Facebook Design Team and of course I am very excited!! I applied because I truly love the varies of stamps they sell, and everything doesn't look the same, so there's always something for everyone! Plus they have a lot of themed stamps and what I discovered is the biggest reason I love the brand, is their beautiful backgrounds!!! Head into to the store and check it out for yourselves ;)  

Today I am showing you a card with three different elements that you all can enjoy too! I used a Dracula digital stamp that you can get for only 1 dollar in the store! If you go and enjoy the Make it Crafty Facebook group, you will get the code needed ;) 
With this card I also show you how the sketch-challenge (in the same group) can look like. If you enter, post your card in the "Challenge # Album" in the Make it Crafty Facebook group. 
And finally this card is for inspiration to the Easy color-challenge this month, which is to use the colors black and orange on a stamp. I've made it a theme throughout the whole card :) 

This is my card!

Here's a closer look at Dracula. I've used watercolorpens from Derwent and boosted his hair and orange clothes with a little distress ink pads, Spicy marmalade and Barn door.

The sentiment is in Swedish and means "Congratulations on your birthday".  I've chalked the edges with Spicy marmalade distress ink.

Thank you for stopping by, now please join us in the Facebook Group and come and have fun with us! ;)

Ett bokmärke med SC Thank You/A bookmark with SC Thank You

Idag bloggar jag ett litet bokmärke i citrongult och hallonrött! :) Stämpeln kommer från Saturated Canary och heter Thank You. Eftersom denna ska fungera som ett bokmärke kräver det att dekorationerna är ganska platta, därför ser detta lite annorlunda ut mot mina vanliga kreationer!

Today I'm blogging a bookmark in lemon-yellow and raspberry-red! :) The stamp is from Saturated Canary and is called Thank You. Since this is a bookmark, the embellishments need to be kind of flat, so this looks a little bit different from my other creations! 

Jag har färglagt henne med Derwents akvarellpennor och sedan lekt med Frantage Enamel Shabby White runtomkring.

I've colored her with watercolorpens from Derwent and played with Frantage Enamel Shabby White around her. 

Tack för att du kikade in!
Kram Madeleine

Thanks for looking!
xx Madeleine
