dt Tickled pink stamps: Tent card tutorial

I´m here today to tell you it´s my turn to host a tutorial over at the Tickled pink stamps blog.
If you are intressted in seeing how I make my tent cards click the link to learn more about it ;)

I have made my tent card using my all time fav TPS image called Lil allsorts Fairy Kira  and I coloured her with my distressers. The sentiment and the die is also from the TPS store, the senitment comes from a valentine kit but unfortunately it´s out of stock right now. I´m sure Kel will restock again though ;) The valentine die is available now though :)
The patterned papers are from Panduro Hobby and the gorgeoues checkred ribbon is a gift from my friend, Dena. Thank you hunni, I love it!
The buttons are from a local sewing store called Stoff & Stil.

Thank you so much for checking in with me today :)

Tickled pink stamps is sponsering Creative Inspirations

....so if you feel like winning a gorgeoues TPS price you definately should join in the sketch challenge over at the Creative Inspirations Wednesday's Challenges.
So head on over there to learn more about that and you should also check our Tickled pink stamps blog to look at the cards that some of my gorgeous teamies has created for this occasion. :)

I have used my favorite {PINK}ette for this card, her name is Coraline and she is so sweet! Love that big bow in her hair and the yummie muffin on the plate. The sentiment is also from TPS. She´s inked with my distressers on 300 g watercolour paper.

I´m getting in the swing of things as a student at uni, a little more each day. Feels great!
I´m getting tired of the wheater though...I feel like it´s been raining her in Scania constantly throughout the summer. Now it´s cold as well...so autumn is definately here again.
Uhhh....I´m soooo not the biggest fan of autumn...
Chin up, Louise! It´s just the wheater ;)

Thank you so much for checking in today!

dt Deep Ocean Challenge #7: Hearts

Time for another challenge with us at Deep Ocean today! :)
I had sooo much fun with the joy fold card I made for the theme this fortnight which is all about HEARTS
It´s been a while since I chose to work with this fold but that will change, I love it!
The result is almost like a valentine card don´t you think? ;)
Patterned papers are all from Magnolia and so are the stamps. Rollerskating Tilda is part of the latest collection "The winner takes it all". When I first saw it, I thought it was a collection with all nice stamps but they didn´t really speak to my heart but it´s a funny thing, now I love them all ;)
Rollerskating Tilda is my fav though! The heart corner stamp was part of the Valentine collection of this year. I stamped it with black and then added stickles star dust to it. The heart is actually grunge board from TH that I have painted with Distress Ink Picket fence crackle paint and then I added some german glass glitter from WOC. It´s so beautiful! The roses are also WOC and the lily comes from Magnolias own range of flowers.

We would LOVE to see you join in so head on over and check out the projects  my lovely teamies has created  for this new challenge.
Surprise us!

Thank you so much for checking in today :)

dt Magnolia Down Under challenges #111: Texture

Oh, my God!
I´m tired, sooooo tired... 
But in a good way ;) I´m now a student as of thursday this week!! It feels great but there is so many new elements in my life now that I throw myself in our couch every night exhausted ;)
Love the feeling of not having to go to work but I sure miss my coworkers, they´re all so gorgeous :) The perfect solution would be to bring them all to uni with me, but I guess that´s kind of impossible ;) LOL!

Enough about me and onto the card I´m showcasing today :)
It´s already time for me to tell you about our new challenge at Magnolia Down Under, time sure flies by, ha?
This week we would love to see what you create with TEXTURE in mind.
I have been wanting to make a white on white card for sooo long! Have seen great ones around in all of your blogs, my fabby friends, and this is how my interpretation turned out.
I had so much fun making it and I dare promise you that another one is on the way ;) He,he,he Lol!
I´m so happy with it, what you all think? ;)
The Tilda is from the Merry little Christmas collection that was released last year. I love it! She is adorable!
I have embossed the papers with two diffrent folders to achieve the structured/textured surfice. The snowflakes that are place on various places are "waist" from when I cut out the snowflake border with a PATP set from MS. I added stickles to the snowflakes, the flowers and the image. I coloured Tilda with my much loved distressers. :) Yes, I got a new ink pad ;) The flower is from Prima, I have used a die from Spellbinder to cut out the banner. Alphabeth stickers from MME. Swirldie from Magnolia, as the charm.

Don´t forget to run over to the challenge blog to wiev the stunning work my teamies has created :) They rock!

Thank you so much for checking in with me today!

We are so amazed and were so inspired to see your gorgeous designs this fortnight and we hope to see you all again this time around. We would like to see you create something with PLEATES and / or RUFFLES in mind. Nice and simple ha? ;)

I have made a card with an image from the Little Darlings range that you can shop at the Love to stamp store named First Bell. My daughter Signe is about four and a half now and this is how I imagine her on her way to her first day at school. I think she´s adorable!
The patterned papers are from Melissa Frances, my fav paper pad called 5th avenue :)
Ribbons from the Magnolia Store in Borås. The image is coloured with Copics. Flowers from WOC :) The sentiment is part of a stamp kit that my friend has designed but it´s currently out of stock in the store so I´m sorry but I can´t link to it. The shabby white little lock is also from Melissa Frances.
Don´t forget to head on over to the challenge blog to take a look at all the beautiful cards made by my teamies :) You´re in for some serious inspiration :)

Best Witches!

When my gorgeous dt boss at Tickled pink stamps, dear Kellie Winnell sent me the new Lil Pinkette images that are Halloween themed I bursted out in joy :) My God, these are pretty!

I have made a trick or treat box that you can fill with candy and give away :) Didn´t feel like going with the traditional colours and all of a sudden this cute little witch called Audrey ended up being inked in in black and pink :) The stunning sentiment is also from TPS and part of a sentiment sheet set also released in the Spinks & Spooks collection.
I have embossed it on to regular black cs with silver embossing powder - cool effect and I haven´t done that in ages ;) The papers are from Echo Park and Audrey is inked with Copics :)

I have had the headache from hell today so I´m keeping it short, I can hear my bed calling out for me ;)

Adorable ha?

Thank you so much for checking in with me today :)
It means so much!
Lot´s of love, Louise xXx

dt Whiff of joy challenges #111: Tag you´re it

This post feels a bit sad you guys!
It´s my final posting as a dt for Whiff of joy challenges. I have been working with the lovely girls there for a year now and I feel it´s time for me to try on something new ;)
I have had the greatest time working alongside all of you wonderful and very talanted ladies :) A special thanks goes out to my dear friend and excellent team leader, Jane. You´re such a sweetheart and the best dt boss anybody could ever wish for! *sniff, sniff*

Well...here I go ;)
As you probably have managed to figure out we´d like you to create something including a tag. Either you make your whole project a tag or you include a tag somewhere on it.
I decided to make a tag featuring the very cute Charlotte on carpet, illustrated by Alison Acton and she can be purschased here.
The tag is cut out using a die from Tim Holtz, patterned paper from Sassafrass Lass and flowers by Wild Orchids Craft. Charlotte is inked with my Copics :) I feel I´m improving and actually I wanted to ink this image with my distressers but my black Archival Ink pad seems to have gone up in smoke and I had no other choice ;) But I´m happy with it! I´m getting there ;) Need to buy a new waterproof ink pad though because I´m not giving up my distress colouring.
The minitag is from Magnolias store in Borås and the Love sentiment is also from Whiff of joy :)

So I have some busy, busy few days ahead of me! I started working again about a week ago and I´ll work til august 25th. After that I´m going back to school again. I can hardly wait, I´m really looking forwards to going back to the university! YAY! Til then I´m working full time and I hope I have time to see you all my friends otherwise you can be sure to see me again when things slow down a bit ;)

Don´t miss out on the beautiful work made by my teamies here.
We´d love it if you joined us!

dt Deep Ocean challenges #6: Light blue

Time for another challenge with us over at Deep Ocean this fortnight.:)
But before I tell you more about that I´d like to thank all of you whom joined in the last challenge, it was a delight to look at all of those stunning and inspiring entries! Keep em coming, peeps :)

Onto our new challenge: it is: LIGHT BLUE.
I have had an urge to make something other than a card lately and the other day I found this jar empty in one of our kitchen drawers. I felt a bit sad for it so I had to alter it! ;)
I bought these amazingly cute Tildas when I last visited the Maggie store a few weeks ago and they have been screaming for attention :) Whoops Tilda inspired me to make it a Cookie jar. And here it is!

Papers are from Magnolia, flowers from Prima and WOC. Images coloured with distress ink pads on 300 g watercolourpaper. Charm from Magnolia and the cupcake punch edger is from MS.

Don´t forget about going here to check out the amazing work made by my awesome teamies :)

dt Magnolia Down under challenges # 109: Song inspired

Oh boy! It´s already time for another smashing challenge with us ladies in the Magnolia Down Under and let me tell you: I´m sooooo exited about this one! We are song inspired this week :) I had sooo much fun making this card :) Can you see which song I´m inspired by? Oh, yes one of my childhood idols had to lend me her title ;) Yeah, it´s Madonna with MATERIAL GIRL! I still think Madonna is into the groove though ;)
See Tilda here where she´s shopping, she is just like me ;) He,he,he! LOL!
If I was a millionaire I´m sure I could spend it all anyways ;)

I have scheduled this post about a week ago and yesterday was me and hubbys 5th wedding anniversary! It was also a celebration because we have been togheter for 10 years! So..I don´t know where I´m at when I scheduled this :) Hubby tells me it´s a surprise but we will be away all weekend. Maybe we are in Stockholm? I´ll tell you all about it when I get home ;)

So please, go see the AMAZING work made by my teamies here. I promise you: the rhytm is going to get you! ;)

dt Tickled pink stamps: Introducing Lil Pinkette Halloweenie Pirate Patric

Here I am again with another prewiev of one of the new Lil Pinkette stamps from Tickled pink stamps!
Meet Pirate Patric, he´s so cool!
Along with the new stamps is also released another set of gorgeous sentiments designed by one of the {PINK} ladies, miss Ann Vento. The sentiment and frame is part of that set. A bit creepy ha? ;)

I had some pirate themed papers from Panduro so I thought they would be perfect for this card. I also used the punch set from MS again to get the spiderweb going. The image is coloured with distress ink pads on 300 g watercolour paper. The metal embellies is perfect for any boy / man card me thinks, they are from Tim Holtz.

Don´t forget to check out the lush work by my teamies here.

dt Tickled pink stamps: Introducing Lil Pinkette Halloweenie Fairy Coraline

Some of you might know that we are in the middle of another smashing prewiev week at Tickled pink stamps. We are soooo exited about this new release, it´s filled with cool AND cute Halloween stamps. This month the prewievs are combined so you will wee both stamps from the Lil Lolita and Lil Lads range and Lil Pinkettes range!
Today it´s my turn to show you what stunning Coraline looks like in her halloween costume, she is dressed up to be a fairy, cute ha?!
I paired her up with some Magnolia patterned papers from the So Spooky collection. The spiderweb is made with a PATP set from MS. The flowers are from Magnolia and WOC. Added loads of stickles to the image. I wanted to make her look very halloweenie so I didn´t put blush on her cheeks, she looks so pale which added to the spooky feeling don´t you think?

Head on over to the Tickled pink stamps blog to see the lovely projects my teamies made using stunning Coraline. You will find all of the other prewievs published earlier this week too. That way you don´t miss out on anything :)
