As always, to feed the little nosy part of us all i asked for a little bit of information from Maria and here is what she has to say for herself.
"Hello, my name is Maria Therese and I live in Norway with my two sweet daughters (4.5 years and 9 months) and my husband.Most of my blog friends call me Tessa.
I started scrapbooking in 2005, after my first daughter was born and these last few years I've become more and more addicted to stamping and card making. Through the last year I've also fallen in love with Promarkers and as a result more cards are being made.
I almost never make a card without inking the edge on the paper with my favourite Fluid Chalk Chestnut Roan, I also love to use my edge distresser. And, lately I rediscovered my sewing machine too.
My Bigest Sugar Nellie addiction is the Gorjuss girls. Even got a mouse pad with them.Hugs from Maria Therese"
Ok, so here are the cards, I KNOW that you want to see!!
Firstly, i have this cute tag card to share with you, i love the soft muted tones that have been used here - a theme common on Marias cards, she seems to be able to do the vintage style perfectly!!! I love the sentiment that has been teamed up with the image, what a fabulous friendship card!!
This next card features one of the fabulous Leanne Ellis arty stamps, i love the brighter colours on this card, finished perfectly with those distressed edges. What a fabulous flower too which has been matched beautifully with that gorgeous colouring.
Another soft and stunning creation here, this time using one of the Gorjuss girls. Now when Maria says that she has an addiction to these Gorjuss girls, she is telling the truth i can promise!! Her blog is just full of stunning Gorjuss creations making it really hard to choose one to share with you. As soon as I came across this one though, i knew i wanted you all to see it. I love the text paper mixed in with the other designs, complimented with the soft and subtle colouring on the image. Its looooovely!!
The last card i want to share with you today features one of the Diane Duda images. I LOVE the simplicity of this one, with the various shades of white distressed to allow them to stand alone. Soooo gorgeous, and really hard to do I have tried myself and have NEVER managed to achieve anything that looks like this!!! I love it!!! The plain soft background really draws attention to the beautiful image - which again has been coloured perfectly!!
I would like to thank Maria now for allowing me to share her work with all of you on the Sugar Nellie blog. I just LOVE seeing how all the customers use the images in different ways.
