Birthday card with a feeling of spring

Right now spring seems very far away, as we still have at least 3 feet of snow, so I thought I could make a little spring on my own. Will be joining the little contest over at the BBTB2 blog - a spring project including a stamp and ofcourse a cricut cut!

Patterned papers I have used is Maya design (the green one) and Papirdesign (dotted).

Have used this cute Tilda from Magnolia. Coloured with distress inks:

Cricut used on this card is frames from storybook (altered a bit in DS) and the little cute butterflies from Every day paper dolls (they are sooo cute - one of my favourite cricut cuts ever). Have also used a swirl/branch from Home accents, which I cut in half.

Bling brad and roses are from Papirloftet.

Have also decorated inside - using the same layout as the front, but with a scalloped circle frame from Mini Monograms:


and I have decorated the backside with my personal stamp from Scrapmagasinet:

Sketch saturday week #93

I got my new distress inks, and have celebrated that by making a pink card. Excited that there finally excists a decent pink colour without having to mix (less work-me happy :) ). Victorian velvet has the most beautiful shade of pink!! Have made a card using Maya's sketch at sketch saturday this week.
Patterned papers are from Maja design and Papirdesign, and I cut the scalloped circle using my cricut (Mini Monograms). Sentiment is from Norsk stempelblad.

The supercute stamp from Whiff of joy is coloured with distress inks and waterbrush, and the main colours are the new Victorian velvet (pink) and Stormy sky (blue):

Have also used the sketch when decorating the inside, with sentiment stamp from Stempelglede. The panel for the personal message opens up, so that I will have more space to write:

Sketch also used for backside, personal stamp from Scrapmagasinet:

SOUS - March 5th - Plane spotter

It is only tuesday, and I have already finished the challenge at Stuck on U Sketches (so proud right now). This week they had a great sketch from Becky Fleck pagemaps, and as an extra touch you are supposed to use bling (which we of course love!!). Finally got to make something out of this cute picture of Konstanse at Bodø Airshow back in 2008, and I finally found use for these quite flashy papers which have been in my box of papers for a looong time (cannot remember the producer right now, but know I got them in an LRS kit. Title is BTW cut from lyrical letters

It is ot easy to see in the picture, but the frame I have made around the picture actuallt glitters. Hand drew little circles, filled them with my white sakura gel pen and put white stickles on top. The ribbon above the picture is the arm band from the airshow.

For a little more bling you can see that the cute little airplanes from New arrival have got pink bling-windows (kaizercraft rhinestones - I love them):

Friday sketchers #92 - for my nephew

Made this card for my nephews birthday, using the sketch from Friday sketchers this week. Have used papers from Papirdesign (in front) and Cosmo Ckricket - Joyride (in the background). Have also used my cuttlebug embossing folder number collage behind cute Edwin. Have coloured Edwin with distress inks, trying to make his footballsuit like the boys favourite norwegian team (not quite right though...). You can see him in closeup here:
