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:

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:

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 ❤

Spring Time is Garden Time….

….out into the sun, fresh soil under your nails and bye bye to weeds and other pesky unwanted things. Have to make room for flowers, plants and veggies 🙂

Are you a garden lover? Then these cards from SVGCuts are just for you 🙂

First up the Seed Packet Card from Mom’s Garden Gifts:

DSC_0033

I used AC Cardstock in Coffee, Vanilla, Crimson, Leaf, Sunflower and Apricot and Graphic 45’s “Home Sweet Home” patterned paper. I did change the flowers cause I didn’t think purple pansies worked for the color scheme. I used the cute flower from SVGCuts’ B Is For Birthday and used a wood dot as flower center. Finally I used a banner from the Silhouette Design Store and wrote “Congratulations” (in Danish of course) on it.

Next I made the Garden Scene Card from Mothers Garden also from SVGCuts:

DSC_0035

For this card I used AC Cardstock in Crimson, Vanilla, Robin’s Egg, Key Lime, Spinach, Chestnut, and Moss. I also used Graphic 45 paper – this time it’s “Nature Sketchbook” and as flower centers I used some cute bling from my stash. Oh and I almost forgot the gold vellum in the window 😀

Now they are ready for lots of occasions like Birthdays, Mother’s Day, Weddings or what have you and I can’t wait to give them away 🙂

Thanks for stopping by today and please remember a small yet important comment to this crazy craft lady 😀

I come bearing gifts……

 

…..in gorgeous giftbags ❤

Here in Denmark we are in the middle of Confirmation season. I bet almost everyone knows somebody or somebody’s child who is being Confirmed this spring 🙂

So it was with great joy I discovered that Mary from SVGCuts had made this beautiful giftbag that fits the occasion greatly – The Crucifix Gift Bag:

DSC_0009

This one I made up for a girl with AC Cardstock in Bubblegum and White along with patterned paper from Galeria Papieru “The Age Of Innocence” and some Sparkling Paper. I also added a handle made from hemp wire and a bow made from hessian.

DSC_0012

I also made the bag in a boy version……

DSC_0008

….using AC Cardstock in Lagoon and White along with the Galeria Papieru paper and more Sparkling paper. I also used the hemp wire as handle and tied some different bluish ribbons onto the bag handle.

I have seriously fallen in love with Mary’s shaped giftbags and I hope she will create more in the future….I for one is a taker 😀

Thanks for stopping by – hope I have given you some ideas for your next Confirmation, Communion or Babtism ect. Please remember to leave a small comment ❤

Garden Party

….it’s almost time! Time for sun, warmth, relaxation and those loooong evenings on the porch  – Man! I just can’t wait.

To endure the waiting time, Mary from SVGCuts made us some darling Box Cards to keep busy and dreaming on – Garden Party Box Cards

First of I made the Adirondack Chair Box Card:

DSC_0011

This design is just ingenious! Folds flat for sending and pop’s out to unfold the cutest little chair with a pillow and a little flower. Gotta love it! I made this from AC Cardstock in Vanilla, Sunflower and Moss and Graphic 45’s “Nature’s Sketchbook” paper 🙂

She even thought of making the back side fun:

DSC_0013

Look at that little towel 😀

Next I made the Teacup Box Card:

DSC_0015

I just love how the flowers fill the Teacup ❤ I used AC Cardstock in Latte, Sunflower, Moss and Vanilla and “Nature’s Sketchbook” again 😉 I cut out a small corner to put on the tag instead of a sentiment.

Then I made the Triple-layer Cake Box Card:

DSC_0018

Ok so I got all crazy with the colors for the frosting but hey! – Art has no rules! 😀 I used AC Cardstock in Vanilla, Orange, Sunflower and Moss and again “Nature’s Sketchbook” 🙂 The flower centers for all the box cards are made from Enamel Accents by Ranger.

Following is the Birdhouse Box Card:

DSC_0020

Come on! How adorable is this one???? It even has it’s own key ❤ For this darling I used AC Cardstock in Chocolate, Rust, Latte, Ash, Sunflower and Moss and of course also the adorable “Nature’s Sketchbook” paper 🙂 Gosh what I wouldn’t give to pick Mary’s brain once in a while 😀

Finally I made the Lantern Box Card:

DSC_0022

I wanted an natural look for this baby so I used the “Snap Basic’s” 6×6 paper pad from Simple Stories. Love that wood paper 😉 I also used AC Cardstock in Vanilla, Bubblegum, White and Moss and for the tag I used an old AC rub-on.

These cuties are just so adorable and useable and I bet I’m going to be making more of them. No problem cause they are so easy to assemble I did it without the tutorial video 😉

And All Together Now:

Spring……

….sure doesn’t feel like it here in Denmark right now. We’ve had some lovely days in late March and early April but now it looks like winter’s making a comeback 😦  Oh well…..bad weather equals crafting so that’s what I’ve been doing all day 🙂

Earlier this month, Dreaming Tree released a beautiful Spring Bundle: Spring Has Sprung and it’s from this I found my newest project – The Apple Blossom Lantern:

DSC_0008

Normally I LOVE color – the more the better, but for this lantern I figured I’d go with a more natural look. So I broke out my wood-patterned papers from the KaiserCraft Collection Base Coat III and chose a dark pattern for the base and roof and a white painted pattern for the middle part. I also used AC cardstock in Chocolate, Key Lime, Blush and Tangerine. Finally I decorated the lantern with small pearls here and there. I also tucked in some moss around the candle for an even more natural feel.

I just love how this turned out and it’s NOT leaving my house!

I hope I have inspired you to make your own version of the gorgeous lantern and I hope to see lots of them on FB 🙂 Thanks for visiting today and remember to leave me a small comment on your way ❤

Oh and HAPPY EASTER ❤
