A new Magnolia card

Blue card - bildmålarna

Today i have made a blue card for bildmålarnas challenge.
I used paper from October Afternoon, and some others.
Mimosa- I forgot, is the name of this stamp. She is so cute, even if she is sad! The sentiment says "after rain there will be sunshine", but in swedish. She is colored with promarkers and i have used my white pen to highlight some areas.

My first picture of the card is scanned. My second picture is taken out in my garden this sunny day. Same same but different!

#25 Tilda on Anything But a Card

My new little Tilda as a nurse is so cute! I made 2 tags with her and put on a little bottle of vine. I made a "ribbon" of butterflies to put under the tags, but i dont think it shows in my pictures. I decorated with white swirls and white butterflies.

I am entering them into:

Swirls of summer

Ofcourse i had to create a card with swirls of summer! :)

It is for the challenge: Sweet Pea Stampers - Swirls of summer
I added glitter to my swirls to really make them shiny and appering om my card.
This was a fun stamp to color! I added Glossy Accent on her shiny pearl, or mini sun or whatever she might hold in her hands! :) I have embossed the white paper with butterflies. The die with my stamped image is from spellbinder. The paper with sheet music is from Inkido.
And here is my card:

The first card with my new Magnolia stamps!

So first i was really surprised by my new Magnolia stamps. Space theme and sports theme. I thought it would be more of flowers and summer theme... But ofcourse i had to stamp them and see what they look like. I put togheter a card of space theme as my first card. Here I saw my chance to NOT have flowers or butterflies on my card (my fiance´s wish if i should be honnest). So not a single flower or butterflie, here it is:

I have used 5 of  the new Magnolia stamps! :)

Challenge i am entering: Magnolia stamp lovers - button challenge

The album I won I am gonne use to collect ideas in!

Some time ago I won an album (and tags!) made by Annelie! I was so happy, I know exactly what I wanted to do with it. I am collecting ideas and inspiration in it. First I dont want to write on the tags, so I am writing stuff on separate notes, but later on when i know more i will write on the actual tags. :)
It is great to have an album to collect ideas and stuff in! And it is inspiration to have such a beautiful album! :)

Totally Tilda Challenges

Today i have created a card with the beautiful colors of red, white and blue! They really are a great combination!
I am entering the challenge # 24 - TILDA IN RED WHITE AND BLUE at Totally Tilda Challenges. :)

I have used a lovely stamp from Magnolia, with both Tilda and Edwin. I only have 2 promarkers of both blue and red, so i had to do my best with it. The die behind my circle spellbinder die, is from Cheery Lynn Design. I  love my new dies! 
I added sparkle on Tildas shoes, and used Glossy Accent on Edwins shoes.

I hope my photographing is good enough. I think i am better now than i used to be, but still need to improve!

Oh what a fun challange this is! I chose pink! A lot because of the fact that I have many different shades in pink in my promarkers, while in other colors I still lack a lot of tones....which does it impossible to use them in this challange. Grey I have few too, and i really love grey in cards. (hm.. in my cloths too if i open my wardrobe).

The recepie: my paper is from Inkido, the stamped image (from Sweet Pea) is colored with promarkers and highlighten with Inkssentials Opaque pen. The cats eye is covered in Glossy accents. The pin is from the event I attended. Flowers are from Panduro and other different shops...
and the challange i am joining is: monochromatic at Sweet Pea Stampers
I have actually managed to take a picture of it! I put it on my flowers in the garden early (06.00) in the morning (what do my neighbours think??)! And it is my best photo this far! Because of the roses i couldnt scan this card...

and this is a close up of the stamped image

To develop in scrapbooking/cardmaking

I need to change my thinking!
First of all, I need to color one stamp several times, since every time I do it I become slightly better. It is very fun to color different stamps, but then I dont get to know them! And I also need to learn how to color one stamped image at the time, since the first couples of times when I color, i am scared and dont dare to experiment. Last night I colored ching chou kuik's Winter Watcher again, and this time I dared to do some extra. And it became my best coloring so far.

And when I put togheter cards, i need to slow down! There is no need to rush things like I do! I am gonne start working with details and the last thing I will do is to glue it all togheter, since I often change my mind when I have already pasted it all! So there will be no new cards for a couple of days, since I need to grow in my thinking! Lol! I hope I can follow what I have written!  Hugs Sandra
