Paper Nest Dolls - Princess with Apple | Swedish House Crafts DT


Hello, lovely blogger friend's.
I'm here as well as on Swedish House Crafts blog today with a card that I have designed using another of the gorgeous Paper Nest Doll rubber stamps. This little beauty is called Princess with Apple. She is from the fairytale collection.

I would highly recommend  popping over to the store to see the many gorgeous paper nest doll rubber stamp collections.

I covered the base of the card with Maja Design celebration papers, and used some Lady E dies to make the flowers. 


I used Maja Design monochromes paper to cut Magnolia Doohickey window die. I adhered a piece of lace from my stash behind the window at the top. Sadly the window die is no longer available to buy in store, but Suha does stock a small selection of other Magnolia Doohickey metal dies that is worth taking a look!

 

A close look at Princess with Apple. I coloured her Polychromos pencils, and cut around the image.
I used 3D foam tape from my stash to adhere her to the card.


I made the flowers ecru foamiran, and Lady E leaves 002, and tiny flowers dies.
I coloured the edges of the flowers with pastels from my stash prior to assembling them.



Inside the card is decorated to complement the front.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Paper Nest Dolls - Tower Princess - Swedish House Crafts DT

Hello, lovely blogger friend's.



I'm here with my DT card for Swedish House Crafts.
I've made a shaped card featuring one of the latest collections of Paper Nest Dolls stamps. The collection is called Fairytales. There are 13 stamps in the whole collection. You can purchase the whole collection for the price of 11 stamps in store now at Swedish House Crafts.

My chosen stamp is called Tower Princess. I have coloured her in sepia using Polychromos pencil colour nougat. This is the first time that I have coloured one of the paper Nest Dolls stamps, and I thoroughly enjoyed doing so.

I decorated the base of the card with Maja Design Celebration papers also available to purchase at Swedish House Crafts.

Links to the products are in text, and can be found at the end of this post.


I chose to colour the image in sepia colours using Polychromos pencil colour nougat.
I fussy cut around Tower Princess, and adhered her to a die cut oval from my stash using 2mm foam tape.
The 5mm pearls around the image are from my stash!


To make the flowers I used Lady E die leaves 002, and Maja Design Celebration papers. I used stamens from my own stash in the centre of each of the flowers.


I die cut Magnolia Doohickey castle using Maja Design Celebration papers.

Sadly the castle isn't available anymore in store, but the tower is.


Behind the flowers is a tower with a flag. I die cut the castle, and improvised by cutting just the tower from Magnolia Doohickey castle as I do not yet possess Magnolia Doohickey tower which is available to pre order in store. I have linked Magnolia Doohickey tower at the bottom of this post.


Inside the card is decorated to complement the front.

Laserowe Love MDF Banner For Swedish House Crafts

Hello, lovely blogger friend's. 
 I'm here with another altered project using some of the latest Laserowe Love products available in store at Swedish House Crafts.

Links to the products are in text, and can be found at the end of my post.


I decorated one of the new Laserowe MDF banners. I painted the banner with white gesso, and covered the front with a strip that I cut out from one of the design papers included in Laserowe Love 'Yellow Spring' collection.


The 'Yellow Spring' paper collection has several sheets of daffodil, and bluebell designs to cut around. They are so beautiful. I love Spring flowers.

I cut around, and arranged the blue bells, and daffodils onto the centre of the banner placing some pieces of Laserowe lily of the valley chipboard background between the arrangement.

I cut around some more daffodils from another design sheet, and layered them on top of each other with sticky foam tape. Just as you would with decoupage.

I made the white flowers with white foamiran, and Lady E die leaves 002. I used baby blue stamens in the centre of each flower.

The butterflies that I cut around and positioned on the daffodils are also from 'Yellow Spring' collection.


The banner sits pride of place on my craft room door 😊

Thanks for stopping by today!

Laserowe Easter Egg DT For Swedish House Crafts

Hello everyone!
I'm here with an Easter project that I've made using some of the new Laserowe products available to buy in store at Swedish House Crafts.


I decorated MDF Easter egg on a stand.
I painted the egg and base with white gesso, and once dry I decorated it with one of the new Laserowe Love paper collections. This one is called 'Yellow Spring'. The colours, and designs in this collection are so lush! 

One of the sheets has gorgeous images of daffodils on it. I chose to cut around one of the daffodil designs, and adhered it between my flower arrangement.

The chipboard Easter egg with flowers is also part of the new collection. I painted it with white gesso, and adhered it beside the flower arrangement.


I made the larger flowers with ecru foamiran, and Lady E die leaves 002. The smaller flowers were made using Lady E dies tiny flowers.
I cut out some pieces from Laserowe lily of the valley background chipboard, and placed them in between the arrangement.
The pretty blue butterflies are also from the Yellow Spring collection. I cut around a few, and adhered them randomly onto the decorated egg.


Here is a closer look at the arrangement.


I have decorated the base with Laserowe Yellow Spring rabbits in love.
I painted the rabbits with white gesso. I made stands for the back of them using what was left over from the chipboard. I adhered some artificial moss, and some art stones to the base, and then adhered the rabbits on top.

Swedish House Crafts DT - Winter Exploding Box


Hello, everyone!
I'm here as well as on Swedish House crafts blog today with another exploding box that I made just before Christmas using Maja Design Christmas Season papers. 
The papers are gorgeous. I love them so much.

If you would like to see the the first exploding box that I made using the papers. You can find it HERE

Links to the products used can be found in text at the end of my post.


To make the base of the box I used a 12" x 12" sheet of Christmas Season Holiday paper, and decorated each panel with papers from Christmas Season 6" x 6" paper pad.


To decorate the centre I used Laserowe chipboard 3D sled. I dabbed each of the chipboard pieces with vintage photo distress ink using a sponge. Then I assembled the sled using pva craft glue.
Once dry I added some snow-tex to give a snowy effect. The distress ink, twine and snow-tex are from my stash! I made the presents myself using the design papers. 


Above are some close ups of each of the decorated panels. Each of the images are from the 12" x 12" sheet of Christmas Season Ephemera.

The flowers, and embellishments are from my stash, and the chipboard snowflake is one of many on a sheet of Laserowe Love Arctic sweeties snowflakes.


Here is the box opened with the decorated lid. I made the lid using white card, and decorated it with papers from the 6" x 6" pad. I also made the tag using the papers.

Thanks for stopping by today!
