Sabrina in blue and purple


Today I am sharing a card I am very happy with! I totally love this colour combination, who knew that blue and purple went sooo well together!? 

Here's my card :)
I have used a gorgeous design paper by KDesigns in purple and a GoKreate Large Frame Frilly#5 for the card's shape. 

I used three different Lalaland Crafts dies on this project, the hot airballoon, the leaves and the Happy Birthday flags. I have stamped dots with a stamp by Stempelglede and Seedless Preserves Distress Ink all over the coloured image's edges and the other die-cuts. 

I also inked the clay butterflies with Inka Gold Jade and Aqua. I finished the project off by spraying Perfect Pearl mist all over it and putting some Crystal stickles over the flowers :) tadaaa!

Here's a close-up at the lovely Sabrina :) I have coloured her with Copics and these are the combinations I used:

Hair: E29,25,21
Skin: E04,11,21,00,000, R20
Blue: BG09,07,05,01,000
Purple: V09,06,04,01

As you can see here I did an easel card! I totally love this folding, such a gorgeous way to not only see the card but the greeting from the one who gives it. :)

Thank you so much for stopping by :) Happy Crafting!

A tag with Butterfly Princess


Today I want to share a tag I made with this gorgeous stamp - Butterfly Princess by Saturated Canary that I coloured up with Copics. I LOVED colouring this, since the dress has beautiful folds and I was in a mojo mood and felt like I could conquer anything colouring wise lol!

Here's my tag!
I have used my lovely stamp set from Stempelglede to make the tag and coloured image dotty (with Vintage Photo Distress Ink) in the edges and then I poured some Frantage Enamel Shabby White and heated it with my heat gun. The flowers are glittered with Stickles Crystal and the edges of the tag and image as well. 

I used Spellbinders Nestabilities Little Darling Lovely View die to make the wheel thingie and stamped with Stempelglede stamps on it as well and used Frantage Enamel too. The butterfly and the bird are made with Martha Stewart clay and mold and some other brand for the bird (don't remember!) and I inked the butterfly with Inka Gold Rose Quartz.

Here's a close-up at Butterfly Princess. The colours I used are:
Skin: E04, 11, 21, 00, 000 and R22, 20
Hair: E29, 25, 21
Dress: RV69, 19, 06, 04, 02
Butterflies: V09, 06, 04

Thank you all so much for stopping by, if you have any questions, feel free to ask me! :)
Happy Crafting!

Blue, green and pink Sweater socks fairy birthday card!

This is a new card from me, I got an urge to colour up a Saturated Canary image and found this one in my SC folder and decided to have a go! She was lots easier than I had imagined and I am pretty pleased with the result :) 

I recieved a package from 123stitch.com today with two new dies and... Memento dye inks!!!! I have been wanting them for so long and now I decided to get them :) I love the possibilities I have with them and they aren't as watercolory as Distress Inks and I needed something to complement my DI's :) 

Here's my card! 
I have used K&Company design papers in green and pink (love the patterns on them, they are simply gorgeous!) and used Crystal stickles on their edges. I die-cut the clouds with a gorgeous die by Cottage Cutz and inked them with Inka Gold Aquamarine to fit the dress of the image I coloured. I die-cut the heart swirls by Magnolia in the same design paper as the background paper on the card. Finally I used one of the new dies in my package, Lalaland Crafts Heart doily! I have been wanting that one for a long time as well :) 

Here's a close-up at Sweater Socks Fairy. I coloured her with Copics and used a white Posca pen for the white dots on the image. I also inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and stamped with my lovely and beautiful swirl stamp from the Stempelglede stamping set, also with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. 

I stamped the sentiment "Happy Birthday" in Swedish with my new Memento Rosebud ink pad and had lots of time before it dried completely so I decided to pour some clear embossing powder over it and heat it. Perfection! 

Copic combinations:
Skin: E000, E04, E11, E21, E00, R20
Hair: E49, E37, E35, E31
Dress: B39, B37, B34, B32
Socks: G99, YG63, YG25, YG23, YG03
Wings: RV19, RV06, RV04, RV02

Here's a close-up at a butterfly I made of Martha Stewart Clay and mold and inked with Memento Rosebud ink, before I put some sticky embossing powder over it, heated it and then poured some Diamond glitter all over it and heated again! LOVE how it turned out! The Memento colours are so rich and gorgeous nuances!

A final photo of the card standing.. This was so spontaneous and I just crafted without thinking so much - like heaven! 

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Happy Crafting y'all! :)

Mermaid with message in a bottle pink card


Today's card is one I have longed for to do! I lost my inspiration in November but have finally found my way back to the mojo! So today's card is my very first "Maddie card" in a very long time!

Here's my card!
I have used a wonderful pink design paper from K&Company (one of my favourite paper stacks!) and used Diamond Stickles on the edges of the papers. I used Marianne Designs Clock die and poured Frantage Shabby White over it. I also used Lalaland Craft's leaf die and inked it with Inka Gold Mint Green. I have a Memorybox Butterfly die that I die-cut four times and inked each butterfly with Inka Gold Rose Quartz. 

The shells and the lace is from Live and Love Crafts and the bottle with stems in it is from a store at Aliexpress.com. Almost all the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts!

Here's a close-up at Aurora Wing's image Mermaid with message in a bottle that I coloured with Copics. It was the first image I coloured in a long time right before Christmas and now she is finally on a card! :) 

Copic combinations:
Skin: E000, E04, E11, E21, E00, R20, R85, 83 for lips and RV66, RV55, RV52 for ears
Hair/ E37, E35, E31
Bottle: G21, G00 
Blue: BG05, BG01, BG0000
Yellow: E18, E15, YR38, YR35, Y11

Here's a final photo of the card. I decorated the inside with the same design paper as on the front and put a little square there for a greeting. 

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Happy crafting :)

Magic is believing in yourself card


Today I want to show you a card I made with my Spellbinder dies again :) and a gorgeous stamp by Stempelglede! 

Here's my card! 

I used Spellbinders Nestabilities Decorative Elements Romantic Rectangles Two and Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 39 for the stamped sentiment square. I also used a Martha Stewart punch for the butterflies. 

The gorgeous design paper is from K&Company and I stamped the sentiment with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and used Clear Embossing powder over it and heated. As a final touch I used Glossy accent to make some drops on the sentiment :) 

Happy crafting y'all! :)

"Happiness is to have a friend like you"


Today I made a Spellbinder card, looove these gorgeous dies! 

This is my card!

I used Spellbinders Nestabilities Card Creator Reflective Moment die to make the card's shape. I also used a Spellbinders M-bossabilities embossing folder called Lovely Lattice to emboss the background paper. I inked the embossed flowers with Inka Gold Old Silver to make it shimmer. 

The stamped sentiment is in Swedish and means "Happiness is to have a friend like you" by Vilda stamps! I have stamped the sentiment with Versamark Embossing Ink and poured Gold Embossing Powder over it and heated it. I cut out the oval with a Spellbinders Nestabilities Decorative Elements Elegant Ovals die. 

The butterflies are made with a Memorybox die. 

Thank you for stopping by!
Happy crafting!

A Happy Birthday Spellbinders card!

Hi and hello!

Hope your holidays have been awesome! I kind of lost my mojo in November and now I am really trying to find it again and today I made a card in a style I did way too long ago! Using Spellbinders Decorative Elements die sets, you can create such gorgeous cards and layouts just by layering paper and die-cuts! 

Here's my card! 
I used a gorgeous paper from K&Company and Spellbinders Nestabilities Decorative Elements Romantic Rectangles Two and inked all the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. 

The butterfly is made with a Spellbinders Shapeabilities D-Lites Outrageous Butterfly die. I cut two pieces out and used a sticky embossing powder on them and then poured Diamond glitter all over them. At last I glued on some half pearls to top it. 

I stamped "Happy Birthday" in Swedish with Versamark Embossing ink and used WoW Bright Opaque White embossing powder over it. Love that the design paper could be used one more time, I totally love it!

Thank you so much for stopping by, happy crafting!

xoxo Madeleine
