Happy birthday Ellen Marit!

Here is a card I have made for a former co-worker. Her birthday is comming up this week and I wanted to send her a little something. 

The DP was stamped with TH flourishes stamp before I covered it all up..... If you try real hard, you can see it, but I know that it is there... :)

The dress stand is a TH stamp, not sure where the wings are from, it is a stampset that I have got, but can't remember the stampline.

The wings is embossed with holograpich embossingpowder, giving it a nice shimmer.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

12 tags of 2012 April

This is my second take on this tag only today... the first one was a big failure so I had to start over :) Last chance to play is today I think so no pressure..... *LOL*

I glued a page of old dictionary onto some cardstock and washed over it with Snow cap paint dabber, then added color with distress ink. I dry embossed it with TH pine trees and then colored the trees.
The bird is from Layers of Colors. It was embossed with Faded Jeans, Brushed Corderoy and Pine Needle embossing powder and cut out. The crown is groungeboard embossed with gold embossing powder. Then I just added a metal tag, some lace and a key and Voila... I was there..... *LOL*

Top hat

I found a tutorial on how to make this cool top hat over at Pinterest, and I just had to try it. 

Not really sure what to do with it, but I guess it has to be for someone special :)

I have got the gorgous lace from my aunt Wenche.

It is not easy to see, but the little ticket behind the tulle says "With love".

The tutorial for the hat can be found here.
The tutorial for the fabric flowers can be found here.

Happy birthday Sara

My darling little niece Sara is turing 3 years old tuesday. She is as cute as can be and whenever she sees one of my cards she says "auntie Gunn"  - she is adorable. I am sorry that I will not be there for her on her birthday this year, but I will send her a card :)

Cute cards is not my thing, and cards for children is.... well, not my thing either, but I think this is somewhere in the acceptable range for a child, maybe....
 anyway, it is what she gets! *LOL*

I have tried to play with Delicious Doodle bingo challenge, but I am not sure that I have understood and followed the rules for this challenge. So if Teri kicks me out she kicks me out :) I will understand.

I have used Ribbon, Delicious Doodle image and pearls, but then I have also used flowers and glitter... 

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Victorian corsets

This is just a little card I made just to make something. I really wanted to use this corset image that I got from The House Across the Bay over at Etsy.
I am not really sure that I am happy about it, I did not follow a sketch and I think that maybe I should have done that.... anyway, it is what it is.

Thanks for stopping by!

A butterfly mini album

I have been wanting to create a little album for my mother for quite some time, but I did not have a lot of photos of her that I wanted to use, and I kind of could not ask for them either... it would spoil the surprise. So when I saw a butterfly album over at pinterest I thougt it would be perfect! And it was :)

 My mother counted the butterflies used in this album, she counted 60 :) If it is a butterfly album, well then it has to have butterflies right?

 On the front page I have used my favorite Silk Moth from Layers of Colors.

I have also used some lace and stuff that the lovely Maxine sendt me in a RAK.

The blue butterfly is also from Layers of Colors.

More Layers of Colors butterflies, and a beautiful hand made flower from Maxine :)

I am not sure where the birdcage is from but the bird is from Layers of Colors.

 I think that the sitting lady is from Kort og Godt.

My parents wedding photo.

 The dress stand stamp is from Tim Holtz.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
