My Easter-project, to inspire you to join us, is a decorated box with chocolate eggs inside.
I used an Easter dressed Tilda from Magnolia - coloured with ProMarkers of course.
My aunt bought the buttons for me in America years ago, I save them for special occasions ��
The text is also a Magnolia stamp, saying "Happy Easter".
The decor is just made as a sort of belly band, to wrap around the box. It's closed with two velcro dots
Here's the box, photographed from different angles:

Bruk Stempel/ Use stamps @ Storyteller


Good Morning.
It's time for a new Storyteller challenge again. The theme for this challenge is to Use Stamps.
Remeber that at least one of the products on your project has to be from Storyteller.
If you are unsure if some of the products you have are from Storyteller, just take a look here.


Here's my project, to inspire you to join the challenge.
Stamps do not only have to be used on papers or cards.
I have stamped Santas head on white shrinkplastik and made a pair of earrings.
The earrings are used as decor on a gift-tag, to make a little extra gift on a christmas present (I like making a little extra out of the giftwrapping...)
Here's what I used making the tag and earrings:
DPs: Authentique
Tag: Storyteller (ST-009445)
Stamps, image + text: Storyteller ( images from ST-009858, ST003030, text from a retired set)
Ribbon: Storyteller (ST-007328)
Ink: StazOn and DistressInk WalnutStain
White Shrinkplastik

And here's the tag:

close-up of the earrings:

Back of the tag, the "To-From"-panel is fastened with a red little brad, and holds the earrings in place...

to loosen the earrings you'll just turn the panel a little:

Your Favourite Song @ I ❤️ ProMarkers


Good Morning to you all.
I'm here today to show you my DT-entry and to invite you to the new challenge over at
I ❤️ ProMarkers

Sponsor for this weeks challenge is
Live And Love Crafts

The Prize is a £10 Gift Certificate


This weeks theme is
Your Favourite Song

First of all I must apologize for few and bad pictures this week.
My computer broke down the other day, and when I decided to throw it out of the craftroom I got a little carried away. So now I'm practically rearranging my whole craftroom. The whole room is in a mess, and the place where I usually does all my photographing - well, I couldn't find it...
Please bare over with me for a little while. I hope that I'll get thing back in order by the weekend, 'cause I really can't stand all the mess in there!

Well, back to the challenge;
I really can't say I have an over all favourite song, but amongst all the songs I like is the norwegian christmas song Vi tenner våre lykter.
I even like it so much I've bought a stamp with the text from the song some years ago.
With this text I think this little Magnolia image is just perfect.
I also used DPs from Magnolia on this card.
To decorate it I put on: Laces, Flowers, Swirls, pearlstrings, Seambindingribbon, a charm and lots of white halfpearls. I also used several dies to cut out decorations. All over this I dripped and rubbed on white Gesso.
Here's the card:

Hello again.
I’m here to show you my DT-card for the new challenge over at
I ❤️ ProMarkers

Very simple decorated, just a few pearls through a piece of a drinkingstraw and a piece of burlap underneath the birthdaygreeting. I used the burlap most to fit the inside DP, to fit the front and inside more together, sort of…

A little magnet under the DPs holds the card closed:

I have used the image «Circus Lion» for my card.
DPs are from Basic Grey, the «Gratulerer» (Congratulations) die is from KaBoks.
I put on some ribbons in the same «happy colours» as the DPs and the image.
The kite has been laying in a drawer for years, waiting for the right project.
This card is for a child, so again I tried to use bright colours.
It’s made as an easelcard - long time since I used this folding technique, yet I really like the way the card is on display at an easelcard.
