Swedish House Crafts - Celebrate Your Life With Maja

Hello, lovely blogger friend's.
I hope you are well?

I'm here to share my DT creation for Swedish House Crafts blog.

I hope you like it?


I have made a 65th Birthday card for my Step Mother.
She loves Art Deco, and what better than to make her a card with the stunning new collection of Maja papers called "Celebrate".
Links to the products are in text, and can be found at the end of my post.

I used GoKreate large frame frilly #5 for the base of my card, and layer the papers onto my card.

The pretty lace is from my stash.


I chose to use the above image. There are six large image's, and seven image's in the form of stamps on the sheet, so lots to choose from. With the complete collection, you can choose the coordinating papers to match.

I used large antique luxury metal corners to embellish either of the corners on the image.
The corners are antique in colour, but I painted them with white Gesso, and once dried, I rubbed over them with Memento black ink.


I used Roxstamps heart wreath die to cut the papers, and embellished it with sparkly heart, and clear rhinestone embellishments. The hearts and rhinestones are from my stash.

The Happy Birthday text die is Gummiapan. I used papers from the collection to cut the text.

I hand made the flowers, again using a selection of the papers. The larger flower is made using Gummiapan flowers 3 dies, and the rolled roses are made using Marianne Design English rose dies.

In between the flowers, I placed a milky white barley stem available to buy in store.


I die cut the heart tags using Doohickey so wrapped lovely die, and papers.

Here you can also see more of my hand made rolled roses.


Inside the card is decorated to complement the front.

Swedish House Crafts - A Fish Kisses To Tilda - Desktop Calendar & Tutorial

Hello. lovely blogger friend's.
I hope you are well?

I'm here with my project for Swedish House Crafts blog.


I have made a desktop calendar, and featured one of the new Magnolia You're Invited 2018 collection stamps, which are available to pre order in store now. The stamp is called "A Fish Kisses to Tilda" Isn't she adorable???

I used Pion Design "Legends of the Sea" 12" x 12" complete collection papers. The complete collection are currently on sale in store at a great discounted price.

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


I matted the calendar tab onto white card, and design papers placing a piece of white cheesecloth underneath. I used a selection of flowers from my stash, and positioned foliage between them using Gummiapan little twigs die. The pretty lace, and bronze anchor charm are also from my stash.


I stamped the image onto Bristol board extra smooth cardstock, and cut out using Gummiapan stitched rectangle. I stamped around the outside of the rectangle using Gummiapan Stockholm post stamp. I coloured the image with prismacolor and Polychromos pencils.

I sprinkled a little shabby white embossing enamel around the inside of the rectangle, and adhered it onto a larger stitched rectangle with 2mm foam tape, placing Gummiapan hen net between the two layers.


I've put together a tutorial for you on how to make a desktop calendar

You will need:
1 piece of white A4 card
21cm x 14cm strip of white card
2018 calendar tab
Score board 
Paper trimmer 
Pencil
Ruler Glue/sticky tape

 

Position a sheet of white A4 card landscape onto the score board, and score down the centre


Fold in half as seen in the above photo, and put to one side for later


Cut a strip of white card to measure 21cm x 14cm


Position the card portrait on the score board, and score at 2cm, 7cm, and 12cm.


Acordian fold as shown above


Take the card that you folded in half earlier, and adgere the 2cm scored tab to the inside bottom of the card. 
Acordian fold, and repeat with the other end so the tabs match up either end.


This is how the desktop calendar will look after it has been assembled

Thank you for stopping by today!

Swedish House Crafts - Pion Design - Where The Roses Grow!

Hello, lovely blogger friend's.

I'm on Swedish House Crafts blog today.

I have made a pretty feminine card with the gorgeous collection of Pion Design papers called 
"Where The Roses Grow"

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


I used Gummiapan old paper die to cut the base and layer the papers onto the card. I also used Gummiapan nesting stitched circles to matt the papers onto the centre of the card.

I used the gorgeous Roxstamps Curlicue decor edge die to cut the design paper, and fixed it behind the card front at the top.

I embellished the curlicue decor edge with 3mm s/a pearl flatbacks from my stash!


The image that I chose to use is one of three that are in the set. I love them all.

I used one of the Gummiapan nesting stiched rectangle dies to cut out the image.


I placed foliage between the flower arrangement using the Gummiapan twig pointy leaves, and little twigs dies.

I placed a couple of Gummiapan doodle circles, also cut with the design papers from the collection, between the stitched squares above the arrangement.

The beaded berries, and off white flowers with curls are available from the store.

All the other flowers are from my stash!


The rose water bottle, tag, border, and butterflies are included in the complete collection along with lots of other gorgeous designs on the sheets.


Inside the card is decorated to complement the front.

Our challenge theme is.....................ANYTHING GOES
Our wonderful sponsor is Wild Orchid Crafts

I'm sharing the Christmas card that I made last year for my Mum

I used Gingerbread Tilda from Magnolia Christmas party 2017 Collection.
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Bristol board extra smooth cardstock.
I coloured Tilda with Prismacolor, and polychromos pencils, and fussy cut around her!


For the shape of my card I used Gummiapan Old Paper die, and Maja Design "Home for the Holidays" papers.
Other dies used are; Cheery Lynn English tea party doily, Sizzix holiday greens, Gummiapan nesting stitched squares, and button heart. Bird houses, swirl, and garland from Doohickey club vol 17 Christmas/Winter 2017.


The sentiment holiday wishes kit is also from Christmas Party collection.
I used Gummiapan stitched square die, and stamped the holiday wishes kit onto the centre using Memento rich cocoa ink, and sprinkled around the inside with shabby white embossing enamel.
 I then matted it onto a larger stitched square with 2mm foam tape.
I decorated the top of the sentiment using the garland die from vol 17, and used the Gummiapan heart button die at the bottom, tied with a piece of red thread.


A close look at the flower arrangement.
The berries, wooden pine cones, and white paper flower/curls are from Swedish House Crafts.
The 35mm curly red rose, 30mm 2 tone brown rose, white flower spray, and 15mm olive green rose are all from my stash.
I placed the holly that I die cut from Sizzix holiday greens in between the arrangement.


A close look at Gingerbread Tilda.

Swedish House Crafts - Cloudy Love Tilda Christmas Card


Hello, everyone!

I'm here with another creation for the Swedish House Crafts blog. 
I have made another Christmas card.

I used a couple of the new Roxstamps dies on my card. They are so delicate. They cut beautifully through my eBosser, and are great value for money.

Links to the products are in text, and can be found at the end of my post along with a special surprise for you!



I used Gummiapan old paper die to cut the base of my card, and layer the papers which are Maja Design "Joyous Winterdays" new collection. For the top of the card I used the new Roxstamps Curlicue edge decor die.

I used Tim Holtz Vintage photo distress ink to ink the edges of everything on my card apart from the arrangement.


I used the new Roxstamps heart wreath die to cut Joyous Winterdays chilly papers, and adhered it to the centre of the card on top of the doily.

I wanted to add some dimension to the hearts, so I decided to die cut the heart wreath again using the reverse of the paper, cut off the hearts, and adhere them one on top of the other with 2mm foam pads. I embellished the circles on the heart wreath with 5mm white pearl flatbacks


Cloudy Love Tilda is coloured with Polychromos pencils. I used Gummiapan Angelpost stamp to stamp around the outside of the centre piece of the heart wreath, and inked the edges with Vintage photo distress ink. I matted the image to the centre using 2mm foam tape, then I used glamour dust on Tilda's wings to give them some sparkle.


Here you can see the smaller floral arrangement. The cream beaded berries are from the store. The mulberry flowers and bronze angel wings are from my stash.


A closer look at the larger arrangement.


Inside the card is decorated to complement the front.

Now for a little something special for you! If you would like to order any of the products that I have used on my card, our lovely lady boss Suha is giving 5% off these products throughout December.

I have made a Christmas card.

I used Christmas Heart Tilda from Magnolia A Lovely Christmas 2015 collection.

I coloured her with Polychromos pencils in sepia colours, and fussy cut around her.

Other dies used are Marianne Design Anja's Vintage decoration, Sizzix "On the Edge" snowflurries, Joy Crafts Ice crystal, and magnolia Doohickey bloomy tag.

I have inked the papers, and die cuts with Tim Holtz Vintage photo distress ink.


I created a fireplace scene using the new dies from Vol 17 Christmas/Winter.
I added 3mm red s/a pearl flatbacks to the garland, and added glamour dust to the flame.
I used 2mm foam tape behind all the die cuts to give a lovely 3D effect.

I used some sticky alphabet letters to spell the word NOEL.


For the Festive arrangement I used green moss, a cinnamon stick, pine cones, and wine coloured pomegranate apples.
I used Sizzix holiday greens to die cut the holly, and place it between the arrangement.


A closer look at Christmas Heart Tilda.
I have dotted her eyes with a white gelly roll pen, and used glamour dust on the heart to make it all sparkly.
