Swedish House Crafts DT -Roxstamps Congrats


Hello, everyone!
I'm here with something that's a bit different from me! A card that isn't overloaded.
It started off well, and then I wish that I'd overloaded it after all. 😄


I used a couple of the new Laserowe chipboard pieces, and a selection of Maja Design Celebration
6" x 6" papers to make my card.

The Doohickey dragonfly is from my stash!

The number 50 has been die cut using Gummiapan anniversary numbers set.

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


I trimmed a piece of the chipboard Damask square background, and attached it to the card. I secured the chipboard Dentelle doily above it. I adhered the metal antique luxury ornament flower on top of the doily, and adhered a purple moonrock gem from my stash in the centre of the flower ornament.

I handmade the flowers using Gummiapan flowers - 3 dies, and inserted some stamens into the centres.

I used Gummiapan twig pointy leaves, and little twigs dies to cut the foliage and position them underneath the arrangement.


A close look at the new Roxstamps congrats sentiment die cut.


Inside the card is decorated to complement the front.

Suha is sponsoring Allsorts challenge today. I was asked if I would like to be guest designer for the challenge. I've made a card using Swedish House Crafts products to follow the challenge theme which is Girls night out/girly and glam! 

I made a 70th Birthday card using Maja Design Celebration papers. They are definitely girly, and glam!


For the base of my card I used Gummiapan old paper die.

The pretty lace is from my stash!

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


I chose to use the above image on my card. There are six large images images on the sheet to choose from, and they are all gorgeous.

The antique corners are available to buy in store. I painted each corner white, let them dry, and rubbed over them with black Memento ink.

I die cut the number 70 using Gummiapan anniversary numbers set.


A closer look at the Roxstamps curlicue edge decor.


I die cut Roxstamps heart wreath, and placed it behind the image. I embellished the wreath with white pearls, and diamante hearts from my stash!

Swedish House Crafts DT - Sunbathe Tilda Gift Box


Hello, lovely blogger friend's.
I'm  here as well as on Swedish House Crafts blog today with a gift box that I have made following my Team mate Tamara's tutorial which can be found HERE on Tamara's blog.

So Summer is finally upon us in the UK. That is what gave me the inspiration to make my gift box Summer themed.



I used the blue papers from Maja Design Summertime 6" x 6" pad to decorate the box.

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



The above photo shows the top of the box.



I coloured Sunbathe Tilda with Prismacolor & Polychromos pencils, and die cut the image using Gummiapan nesting stitched squares.

I die cut another two stitched squares, one with Maja Summertime papers, and the other with plain white cardstock, and matted them onto each other.
I matted the image onto the patterned square using 2mm foam tape.



I die cut the flowers, and the umbrella using Magnolia Doohickey Sakura flowers & umbrella dies. 
Once I had assembled the flowers, I adhered the stamens in the centre.

The moss in between the flowers, and the silver coloured cocktail glass charm are from my stash!


I die cut Doohickey nautical anchor, and adhered a length of twine from my stash to it.


The sentiment is from my stash!

The nautical 3D pinwheel is Doohickey. I had great fun making it. I used a brad from my stash to secure the centre.

The tiny butterfly is from Laserowe. There are 9 various sized chipboard butterflies included in the set.

The tiny white pearl flatbacks are from my stash!


When opened out, the inside reveals a box to hold a small gift or even some chocolates?


Than you for stopping by today!

Lots of big crafty hugs xx

Swedish House Crafts DT - Story Cake Wedding

Hello. lovely blogger friend's.
I'm here as well as on the Swedish House Crafts blog today. 
This time I have made a wedding card using the gorgeous Gummiapan Story Cake with Glasing die. It is one of my favourite Gummiapan dies.

Links to the products used from Swedish House crafts store are in text, and can be found at the end of my post.


For the shape of my card I used GoKreate large frame frilly #5.
The purple papers are from my stash! The other papers that I used are Maja Design Sofiero.
Other dies used are; Marianne Design clock, and Ivy circle.
Gummiapan story cake with glasing, pierced scalloped circles, and wedding sentiment.
Doohickey wrapped so lovely, and cheery Lynn French pastry doily.

The pretty lace is from my stash!


I die cut a Gummiapan pierced scalloped circle, and stamped it with Gummiapan angelpost stamp.
Then I die cut Gummiapan story cake with glasing using Sofiero papers, and matted it onto the centre of the circle with foam tape, layering the tiers with 2mm foam tape.

I decorated the top of the cake with small mulberry flowers, trailing them down the side of the first tier. The 3mm purple pearls that I have adhered to each of the daisy centres are from my stash!
The lovely tiny butterflies are included in the story cake with glasing set of dies.


To give the sentiment the illusion that it was floating off the card I cut the Gummiapan wedding sentiment and adhered it to a piece of clear acetate. Then I cut around the sentiment, and adhered a strip of acetate folded in half to the back of it using permanent clear glue dots. It looks great. I got the idea from my crafty friend Tammy!


I placed a wrapped so lovely tag behind the scalloped circle.
The flowers, seam binding, decorative pins, charm, and resin cherub are from my stash!


The clock dies are from my stash! The hands of the clock are set to 3.30pm - the time of the wedding.


Inside the card is decorated to complement the front.

Swedish House Crafts - Exploding Box With Laserowe Chipboards

Hello, lovely blogger friend's.
I'm here as well as on Swedish House Crafts blog today with some DT inspiration.
I've made an exploding box using a small selection of the new Laserowe chipboard pieces that are available to buy in store.
I recommend you go take a look! The pieces are gorgeous.

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


I covered the box, and decorated the inside using Maja Design Vintage Spring Basics 10th, and 11th of April.
I used elegant square rose frame to decorate the top of the box. I lightly inked the frame with distress ink, and stamped over it using rich cocoa ink, and a script stamp from my stash!

The lace, roses, green artificial moss, and seam binding are from my stash!
The tiny butterflies are Laserowe. There are 9 butterflies in total in various sizes.
 I inked them using a lavender ink pad. I used white liquid pearls along their centres.


This is what the inside of the box looks like, decorated with gorgeous Laserowe chipboard pieces.


I chose to use the 3D wheelbarrow for the centerpiece, and ornamented corners to create a frame around the wheelbarrow. 
I have rubbed all of the chipboard pieces with distress ink before assembling them.

Tip: It is best to remove the chipboard pieces from the packaging so that you are familiar with how to assemble the wheelbarrow. 
When it comes to placing the wheelbarrow onto the centre, be careful not to press down too hard as the  pieces that are holding the wheel together are very delicate, and could quite easily break.

I made the lavender type flowers using a 2" length of wire, coating approximately 1" from one end with thick pva glue, and then sprinkled Flowersoft over the glue. 
Let the flowers dry in a piece of cut floristry foam that will fit inside the wheelbarrow. 
Adhere the foam inside the wheelbarrow, and add some artificial moss.

The doily has been cut from Doohickey vol 14.


I used the larger chipboard butterfly, sponged it with lavender ink, and adhered it to the centre of the white doily.
I used a selection of flowers from my stash, and adhered a chipboard China corner.
The white pearl flatbacks are from my stash!

I repeated the same layout on the opposite side.


The birdhouse chipboard is from my stash! I sponged it with lavender ink.
I placed artificial moss in the centre opening, and adhered a rhinestone heart above it.
The white bird is die cut from Gummiapan Birdie die. There are 2 little birdie dies in the pack.

Once again I used the chipboard butterflies, and china corner in the same way as previously mentioned.
