Swedish House Crafts - Celebrate Memories at Eighty

Hello, everyone!
I'm on Swedish House Crafts blog as well as here on my own blog today with a shaped card featuring one of the gorgeous images from Maja Design Sofiero Ephemera.
 There are eight large images, and six small images on the 12" x 12" sheet.
All of them are stunning.

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


For the base of my card I used GoKreate large frame frilly #5.

I used the new Gummiapan pierced scalloped circle nesting dies at the top, and sides of the card to make the card a different shape.
Everything has been die cut from the Maja Design Celebration papers.

The pretty lace is from my stash!


I die cut the image using Gummiapan nesting stitched rectangles, and matted the image onto a larger stitched rectangle using 3D foam tape.

I added sparkle to the bow, and tied bow on the hat using glamour dust from my stash!


I die cut Magnolia Doohickey so wrapped lovely heart, and positioned it behind the cake.

I used Gummiapan story cake with glasing die to cut, and layer the pieces.
This has to be my favourite Gummiapan die. It is so versatile, and can be used for any occasion. You'll be seeing more of this gorgeous die on my cards in the future.

I die cut the number 80 using Gummiapan anniversary numbers set.

Numbers that are included in the set are 10, 15 , 20, 25, 30, 40, 50 60, 70, 80, and 90.


The flowers and green artificial moss are from my stash!


Inside the card is decorated to complement the front.

Swedish House Crafts - Magnolia Sunbeam Bunny Easel Card

Hello, lovely blogger friend's.
As well as here I am on Swedish House Crafts blog today with a card featuring one of the new Magnolia bunny stamps from the Sunbeam 2018 collection. 
There are two bunnies in the pack. I chose to use the larger bunny.


To make my easel card, I used new Gummiapan pierced scalloped circle nesting dies. I love them!
Everything has been die cut using Pion Design Where the Roses Grow papers.

Links to the products are in text, and can be found at the end of my post. Look out too for a special offer code from me.


The pennant banner has been cut using Doohickey kit vol 12. I die cut the banner first to use as a base, and then I individually die cut the banner again using several different design papers. I did this six times. I cut a flag from each of the banners, and adhered each one on top of the banner base.


Here you can see the base of my card.

The sentiment, lace, pearl flower trim, diamante heart, and 3mm pink pearls are from my stash!
I stamped the sentiment onto one of the smaller of a Gummiapan stitched rectangle die, and stitched around the edges with some pink embroidery thread.
I adhered the pearl flower trim onto a strip of one of the Pion Design borders. The butterflies are also included on the sheet of borders.


I die cut the smallest scalloped circle, and stamped the bunny onto the centre. I coloured the image with Polychromos pencils.

I used Gummiapan Stockholm postmark to stamp around the image, and stitched around the inside with pink embroidery thread.
The piercings are already there which makes stitching by hand so easy.


I tucked Doohickey so wrapped lovely, and Gummiapan hen net between the layered scalloped circles.
I die cut Gummiapan little card, and envelope, and embellished the front with Gummiapan button heart die. I tied a piece of twine through the eyelets. 


The flowers are from my stash, and the leaves are cut from a leaf die included in Doohickey vol 16.
Sadly due the kits being limited edition, vol 14, and 16 are no longer available , but you are able to pre order vols 19 and 20 in store. You will also be entitled to 5% off using code

I fussy cut around her, and adhered her to the centre of the stitched square using foam tape.

Featured in Making Cards Magazine - March 2018 Issue for Swedish House Crafts


Exciting news!!! 
I have been published in Making Cards magazine March 2018 issue, which is on sale now.
I am also featured on Swedish House Crafts HERE

I absolutely love using Gummiapan, and Roxstamps dies along with Maja Design Sofiero, and Monochromes papers.
 I decided to design a 50th Birthday card using many of the great quality, and versatile metal dies.

Here is my card titled Fabulous at 50.
Of course you don't have to make the card to celebrate a 50th Birthday. You can change number using the Gummiapan Anniversary numbers for any age or anniversary celebration.


Maybe you remember this Story cake glasing die in store maybe or on Hochanda?
It is one of the most beautiful detailed cake dies. The little butterflies are included with the cake die.


I also used tons of paper flowers using both sets of Gummiapan flower dies.


Here you can see one of the most popular sold Roxstamps dies, the heart wreath die.
I've used this die loads of times on my cards. I love to embellish it with pearls and layer the hearts by making them look 3D.


Here is the magazine cover where my beautiful lady boss, and store owner Suha got featured while the cake is visible in the layering technique.
My cake on the cover, and Suha's beautiful face!



And my featured step by step on how I made the card.

I am so excited about my 1st publication for Swedish House Crafts, and all of us girls on the design team are looking forward for much more in the future!

Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you like what I have shared here with you today.

Below are links to the gorgeous products that I have used on the card

Swedish House Crafts - Bunny Tilda card

Hello, lovely blogger friend's.

I'm here with my DT card for Swedish House Crafts.

I have made a pink card featuring 2 Magnolia mini world stamps.
Floral Background, and Bunny Tilda.

The mini stamps come unmounted. You will need to mount them onto a sheet of EZ Mount prior to stamping them on you card/paper.


The pink design papers that I used are from the new collection of Maja called Celebration.

The mini stamps were so easy to colour, what with being small, but I really enjoyed colouring them with my Polychromos pencils.

The pink design papers that I used are from the new collection of Maja called Celebration.

I used Gummiapan nesting stitched squares for the base of my card, and to layer the papers, and white card.

I used Roxstamps Curlicue decor edge die to cut the design paper, and fixed it behind the card front at the top. I embellished it with 3mm sticky white pearl flatbacks from my stash!

I used lots of other dies that are available to buy at Swedish House Crafts.

The pretty lace is from my stash.

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


A closer look at the coloured image's.

I stamped floral background onto Bristol board cardstock and cut out using Gummiapan nesting stitched square.

I stamped Bunny Tilda, coloured her, and cut around her. I used 3D foam tape to the back of Tilda, and adhered her to the bottom of the background.


The flowers are from my stash. The banners, and birdie are Gummiapan dies.


Behind my flower arrangement, you can see Gummiapan hens net. I cut it using Maja Celebration papers.

The toadstools, and cute hedgehog are dies that were included in Magnolia Doohickey club vol 16.
sadly, due to the kits being limited edition, vol 16 is no longer available, but you are able to pre order vols 19, and 20 in store. You will also be entitled to 5% off your pre order by using code;
