LHOSM Challenge #158 - Anything Goes

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

It's time for another month long challenge over on Lovely Haenglar or Sweet Magnolia blog.
Our challenge theme is ANYTHING GOES

I have made a Springtime Birthday card.

I used a Magnolia stamp that I bid on, and won on ebay.
Yes, I am very happy!
I'm not sure what she is called as she hasn't been released yet.
 I'll call the stamp Tilda with Bird!?

I used lots of lovely products from Swedish House Crafts on my card.

Links to the products can be found in my post.

The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Bristol board extra smooth cardstock, and cut using Gummiapan pierced scalloped circle.
I coloured the image with Prismacolor & polychromos pencils.

For the shape of my card, I used GoKreate large frame frilly #10, and Maja Design Celebration papers.
Other dies used are; Cheery Lynn French pastry doily, Gummiapan pierced scalloped circles nesting dies, and birdie die. Marianne Design Ivy circle, Magnolia Doohickey Bloomy tags, fruit tree, and market fence.
The pretty lace is from my stash!

 I used Gummiapan angelpost stamp to stamp around the outside of the scalloped circle, and stamped the bumble bee using Magnolia stamp bumble bee which also includes a lovely May flowers sentiment.
I dotted Tilda's cheeks with a white gelly roll pen, and gave the bee's wings some sparkle with glamour dust.

A close look at my flower arrangement.
The flowers, seam binding, and happy birthday cake charm tied with twine are from my stash! 

The tiny leaves between the arrangement are die cut using a leaf die from Doohickey club vol 16.

The self adhesive letters that I used to spell the name Emma are from Hobby Craft.
I adhered the letters to the tag with 2mm foam tape.

A closer look at the Doohickey fruit tree, market fence, and Gummiapan birdie.

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.

Thank you for stopping by today!

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.

Thank you for stopping by today!
