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 ๐Ÿ˜ฆย  Oh well…..bad weather equals crafting so that’s what I’ve been doing all day ๐Ÿ™‚

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

Normally I LOVE color – the more the better,ย 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 IIIย 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for visiting today and remember to leave me a small comment on your way โค

Oh and HAPPY EASTER โค

  1. You did such an awesome job on all of these. I bought the file yesterday. Can’t wait to sit down and put them all together, too. Where do you get your AC cardstock from. Seems like everywhere the internet takes me only carries a few colors.

      1. That’s right, I’d forgotten. I have a beautiful exchange daughter that lives in Copenhagen and just found out I’m going to be a grandma. Yippee! Thank you, again, for sharing
