I was asked to explain how I made the pop-ups. I don't know how to explain, I just do it... I figured a picture was worth more than words. The important thing with this kind of pop-ups, is that all the folds are 90 degrees. And also be sure that the elements won't obstruct each other when the card is being closed. Good luck on your pop-up!

Stamps used: "Edwins stad", "Lapp Tilda" and "Bench". Paper by Basic Grey "Recess", and EAN-code stamps by Autumn Leaves.
I know have told you before, but I still get questions on how I colorize my cards, so I'll repeat it here. I mostly use Tim Holtz's Distress Ink by Ranger. Put a small amount of ink on a piece of plastic, glass or your acrylic block, and use a water brush to paint. You use it the same way you would with any watercolors. The colors can be mixed together, and you can lighten them using more water. It is important that you use watercolor paper. I use fine grained, cold pressed paper with a 200 g weight (90 lbs), but you can use the paper of your liking, as long as it is ment for watercolors.
The white highlights are gel-rollers. I use any gel-roller I have laying around for this. Draw a small line of highlight, and then quickly smudge it a little with your finger, before it dries. repeat this untill you have the shade you want. You may also highlight without smudging. this will make the highlighting more sharp, and is suitable for shiny objects like i.e. balloons, cars etc.
Also, thank you all for your wonderful comments. I really appreciate them all!! I know I have been tagged by some of you, I just haven't gotten around to do something about it. I should really try to set some time a side for that...

I've also made two other cards, but without Magnolia-stamps this time (allthough one of them is featuring a Magnolia-flower... *lol*). Sometimes it's fun to do something completely different, and the shabby/vintage style is one that I really like.

And yes, I say "more".. I've already made a bunch of valentine-cards, as I was chosen to be the featured "Artist of the Month" in the February issue of "Ett Trykk".
You can see more previews on their blog. See? I'm a "cover girl" too! One of my Magnolia-cards made the front cover as main picture! I'm really proud!
