Sleeping Beauties

……Fantasy Foals….. or just plainly Unicorns 🙂 Would have called this blog post “Horny Horses” but I bet lots of readers would choke on their morning coffee while reading this so I thought it best to find a more sober headline 😀

I spend most of a day to make these next projects from Bird’s SVGs newest and absolutely cute collection Fantasy Foals. I just LOVE unicorns! They are adorable, fun, colorful, sweet, cute – well simply amazing and I wish they were real. The world would be a better place if there were unicorns and fairies I think! 🙂

So first of I made the Unicorn Face Mask:DSC_0003

I was a bit intimidated by this but once I got it all cut out, I quickly learned that it was a very easy project. I have never had much succes with rolled flowers but just look at these! Wooohooo I did it! And the mask itself is easy peasy….

I made it out of AC Cardstock in white, black, Scarlet, Cascade and Cricket along with glittery paper in pink and gold. I sprayed the roses with Glimmer Mist “Iridescent Gold” and added some small rhinestones onto each eyelash. Finally I tied some elastic band onto it. Love it to pieces!

Here’s a picture of my kid wearing the mask:

Next I made the Unicorn Easel Card:

This card would go for both kids and grown-ups….Love the colors ❤

I used AC Cardstock in White and black along with glittery paper and some gold foiled cardstock for the horn. That I embossed with the Swiss Dots embossing folder from Cuttlebug.

Then I made the small Unicorn Gift Tag:

For this I used AC Cardstock in Cotton Candy and White along with glittery paper in gold and shimmering paper in purple. I also tied some Organza ribbon onto it. Voila….a very easy little tag.

Finally I made the Unicorn Gift Bag:

This was the most difficult piece in the collection but not more difficult than most projects and I really love how it turned out.

I used AC Cardstock in White and Black along with glittery paper and gold foiled cardstock. I used swirly embossing folder from Sizzix and braided 3 different colors of Tinsel Twine from Idea-ology for the handle. Now I only need some cute little girl to give this to or maybe one of my many Unicorn-loving girlfriends 😉

This lovely collection is so very easy to make and I know there are lots of girls (and maybe a few boys) that would love to receive gifts with these Horny Horses 😀

Thanks for stopping by and know that I love when you leave me some small comments ❤

Fathers Day…..

….it’s today here in Denmark and usually I would have made or bought a special gift for my “hubby” from his boys but this year I didn’t! I think it’s only fair, since all I got for Mothers Day was a cup of coffee on board a ferry going home from a wedding. So I made him this:

DSC_0003

This To-Go-Coffee Box Card is part of an all new kit from SVGCuts: Pit Shop Box Cards and it features 5 new box cards just right for Fathers Day.

For the Coffee card I used AC Cardstock in Vanilla, Latté and Coffee along with patterned paper from Graphic 45’s Enchanted Forest. The logo on the front is found here (I used only the logo) The steam is made from vellum and I used some small wooden dots as embellishment.

So now he’s gotten the same thing in return – a cuppa coffee LOL…. I don’t get mad….I get even 😀

I also made the Side of Fries Box Card:

DSC_0007

For this I used AC Cardstock in Crimson, Sunflower, White and Black and inked the edges of the fries with an orange ink pad for dimension. I also pinched the fries a bit. On the label it reads: “Congratulations” –  in case I use it for a birthday instead and I used some small dots from Simple Stories as embellishment. A very easy card to make but lots of fun.

Then I made the Pizza Box Card:

DSC_0009

This too is very easy to assemble and I used Kraft Cardstock along with AC Cardstock in Butter, Cranberry, Oregano, Latte and Chestnut. I also used some patterned Graphic 45 paper from “On the Boardwalk” and dotted the pepperoni with a white sharpie. The banner reads “Congratulations” since it would work perfectly for a male birthday 😉

Moving on to one of the more difficult cards in the kit – The Vintage Gas Pump Box Card:

DSC_0005

For this card I used AC Cardstock in Oregano, Cranberry, White, Vanilla and black along with patterned paper from Graphic 45’s “A Proper Gentleman” and “Mercury Glass Cardstock” from DCWV.  I embossed the side panels with a folder from Sizzix and made two embellishments with my Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Tool – the small one I glued into a small Vintage Trinket from Prima. I also added a small green pearl brad and a small Game-Spinner from Idea-ology. Then I made the hose from a length of cotton ribbon from my stash. The label reads: Happy Fathers Day 🙂

This card was so much fun to make and to search for embellishments and paper to use ❤

Finally I made the Taco Truck Box Card:

DSC_0001

This is also a little more tricky card to make – I have some pieces left over and I know I made some mistakes here and there but all in all I’m cool with it.

For this card I used AC Cardstock in Oregano, Apricot, Scarlet, Black, Dandelion, Cranberry, Limeanade, Vanilla and Chestnut along with patterned paper from Graphic 45’s “Bohemian Bazaar.” I also used silver foiled paper and vellum and dotted the small taco with a thin black liner. The labels I made from print and cut and files found in the Silhouette Design Store here and here. Last but not least I used some small dots from Simple Stories as tomatoes in the taco and as tail- and headlights on the truck.

All in all this was so much fun to put together – took me little over a day to make all the cards and I got to use some of my old but cherished paper. Now I have cards ready for lots of occasions like Fathers Day and male (or female) celebrations.

Thanks for stopping by and remember to leave a small comment for me ❤

 

 

Beautiful Boxes….

….finally done 🙂 I’ve spent the most of a week or so thinking, making and embellishing boxes. Gorgeous and usable boxes from SnapDragon Snippets designed by Jodi G. Warner. I think I’m somewhat addicted to making these boxes 😀 LOL

First off – The Four Drawers Box: (found here )DSC_0103

DSC_0120

I made the main box in AC Cardstock Latté and added panels of patterned paper from Graphic 45’s Vintage Hollywood. The colors are so vibrant so I had to place an equally colorful flower (made from different Prima flowers) in the top corner along with two leaves and embellished with a small metal charm. The knobs and feet are from Ideaology.

The box is pretty easy to assemble but the drawers is a tight fit so be careful when you open these 🙂 The assembly tutorial is found here.

Next I made the Box 3D 6×6 Window Lid: (found here or here)

DSC_0106

DSC_0116

For this adorable box, I used Kraft Cardstock and patterned paper from Graphic 45’s Botanicabella. I used some clear acetate for the window and a metal handle and feet that I found online. The flowers are made from various Prima flowers and the butterfly is also found online and I embellished it with some gem studs from my stash.

The box is very sturdy and usable either as keepsake or storage. It’s really handy with the window in the lid to see what’s inside and the box was pretty easy to assemble. The assembly tutorial is found here.

Next I made the Box Hinged Lid and Decorations: (found here or here + here)

DSC_0109

DSC_0114

For this cutie I used Kraft Cardstock and Graphic 45’s By the Sea. I found some different embellishments in my stash like some sea shells, starfish and seahorse along with the feet. The handle is from Ideaology.

This box is also very sturdy and useful. Very easy to assemble especially when you’ve assembled some like it before 😉 A fantastic box that I think I’m gonna use as a keepsake for things found at the beach 🙂 The assembly tutorial is found here.

Then I made the Latch Flap 3D Box to Decorate: (found here or here )

DSC_0105

DSC_0118

For this box I used AC Cardstock Black and Graphic 45’s Halloween in Wonderland. I chose this paper due to the lock and key embellishments also from SnapDragon Snippets (found here for the lock + here for the key or here for the lock + here for the key) It just seem to match up 🙂 The paper I used for the lock and key are by DCWV and is called Mercury  Glass Cardstock. The flower is made from various Prima Flowers and the feet are found online.

This box is also very sturdy and useful. I really like how it closes with the latch flap. This box also assembles rather easy 🙂 The assembly tutorial is found here.

Finally I made the Box 3D Secretary: ( Found here or here + here)

DSC_0111

DSC_0112

For this gorgeous box I used AC Cardstock in Vanilla and Graphic 45’s Communiqué. The flowers are made from various Prima flowers and the metal butterflies are from my stash. The hinges, pull-handle and feet are all from Ideaology.

This box is a bit trickier that the others but if you are careful to place the inner wall the right way, its easy peasy from there on. This is such a cute and useful box – sturdy too. Would be awesome as a gift for a Grand-parent or such. The assembly tutorial is found here.

So this is what I’ve been working on for some time now. Didn’t help much that I had to wait forever on some of the embellishments due to our crabby postal service (some are still on their way 😦 ) But I’m very pleased with the results and would love if you would write and tell me what you think.

Thanks Jodi for making such awesome boxes ❤

King Fisher…..

….is a rare bird here in Denmark. Nevertheless my youngest son age 9, has spotted one living close to the school he attends. At first I thought he had seen something else but he persisted and it turned out that one of the teachers, had seen it too. But does the little birdie want to be a photo model???? Nooooo…..way to shy for that. So after days and hours of waiting with the camera ready, I decided to make one instead. Being the complete dork at drawing, I turned to Bird of Bird’s SVGs and she made me an absolute beautiful SVG bird – ready for the cutting 🙂 My main idea was to make one for my kid to hang in his room but then I thought to make a card as well:

DSC_0173

I used the King Fisher SVG ( found here ) along with a mixture of two of Birds freebie cards – The Cherry Blossom Card and the Leaf Frame Card from the Flower Card Bundles

I used AC Cardstock in Moss, Chocolate, Rust, Vanilla, Bubblegum and Black along with some sparkling paper in two blue tones. The background is a print and cut pattern from the Silhouette Design Store. I also added some bling to the flower centers with Crystal Stickles from Ranger.

I must admit I have fallen i love with this beautiful bird and I’m so happy Bird was able and willing to help me – thank you so much Bird ❤ My son was so thrilled to have his large King Fisher hang in his room. “It is the most awesome version of a King Fisher I have ever seen, Mom” he said and bragged about it to his friends 🙂

Thanks for stopping by and know that I cherish every comment you write me ❤

 

Here’s to love…..

….a quick little post to show you the darling Wedding Card I made for my Brother-in-Law for his wedding yesterday – The Oversized Floral Box Card from the Brunch Party kit by SVGCuts:

DSC_0038

I used AC Cardstock in Ocean, Vanilla and Moss along with papers from Graphic 45’s Gilded Lily Collection. I also used some black glitter paper for the couple in the center ❤ Finally I used Nuvo Glitter Crystal Drops in Honey Gold as flower centers.

I also made the handy box for the card:

DSC_0036

It just fitted perfectly for the gift card and still it wasn’t just another envelope 🙂 The couple really liked it 🙂

Needless to say we had a great rainbow-colored party and I’m so thrilled my Brother-in-Law finally got the man of his dreams ❤

Congrats Claus and Dennis – Love you ❤

Birds and bees…..

…..and flowers and trees……all part of the three cards I want to show you 🙂

Let start with the Enchanted Sparrow Card made from the Enchanted Sparrow Paperscape SVG Kit from SVGCuts:

DSC_0014

This darling card is made from AC Cardstock in Vanilla, Black, Bubblegum, Coffee, Chocolate, Caramel, Butter and Brown Sugar (sounds like a baking recipe LOL…) along with papers from Graphic 45’s Botanicabella. The little sparrow looks so lifelike ❤ Would love to have some more different birds to play with…. Mary! I felt like something was missing on top, so I added a small sticker with a cute sentiment 🙂

Next I made The Honey Bee Teapot Card from  Chamomile Friendship Cards also by SVGCuts:

DSC_0016

For this cutie I used AC Cardstock in Powder, Sunflower and Limeanade along with patterned papers from Basic Grey’s Urban Prairie and some black glitter paper. I embellished the card with some sprinkles from Doodlebug Design and some jewels and a button from my stash. Finally I used a small piece of chiffon ribbon for the “Teabag”. The sentiment reads: Congratulations 🙂

Last but not least I made the Picket Fence Card also from Chamomile Friendship Cards:DSC_0012(Please ignore the missing jewel)

For this card I used AC Cardstock in Coffee, Sunflower, Raspberry and White along with more papers from Urban Prairie. I embellished with jewels in pink from my stash (Except for the one that escaped) and tied some raffia around the cute summerhat and on the sigh. I wanted to make the card a little bigger than the original but ended up making it HUGE LOL…..Oh well….here’s a card for writing many names in 😉

Hope you like my versions of Mary’s gorgeous cards….they were so much fun to make and to pick out papers for. I am still going through the archives of SVGCuts to see if I missed any more fantastic cards or 3D projects to make ❤

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you leave me a small greeting or comment ❤
