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 ❤

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 ❤

 

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 😀

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:

First card of the year…..

….and it took me almost all day to finish. Cause I’m sick. Not sick enough to not get bored so I had to make something. I had a small conversation with a friend yesterday about Pantone Colors and how we both liked the green “Greenery” they picked for this years color. That reminded me that I had the new Graphic 45 collection “Nature’s Sketchbook” laying around, so I decided that I had to make something with that. But what???? Well it has butterfly prints so I went for this:

dsc_0122

The Swallowtail Butterfly Lever Card from Edisto Island Cards SVG Kit by SVGCuts.

It’s just such an easy and beautiful card to make – in any paper. So apart from writing the Kenton on Facebook (you know who you are) and getting really confused, I didn’t make any mistakes today. I was just slow as you are when you’re not feeling well.

Apart from the Graphic 45 paper I used AC cardstock in Spinach and Cranberry and some brown and green dots from my stash. Voila…..a colorful start to the new year 🙂

 

Winter is coming…..

…but not quite yet….I hope 😀 Anyway, Dreaming Tree has, with the new bundle It’s Cold Outside, anticipated the forthcoming season. What gorgeous cards!!! Ron has done it yet again! WOW.

Since I fell and hurt my knee in Italy, I can’t go on my daily walks (at least not until I have a talk with my doctor), so I have had LOTS of time to craft. So I made all three cards yesterday (I even had time for Candy Crush and Pokémon Go too 😉 )

First of the Christmas Village Cascade Card:

DSC_0002 (7)

I didn’t want to alter these cards so I just used a bit different colors. For this I used AC cardstock in Ocean, Grape, Pine, Moss, Crimson and Tangerine. I also used AC glitter paper in White and Silver and decorated the tree with different dots and jewels from my stash. The sentiment is an oldie from a AC Minimarks Rub-on Transfers book.

Next is Peppy Penguins Cascade Card:

DSC_0002 (1)

So much fun making this one with the adorable penguins. I used AC cardstock in Robbin’s Egg, Sky, White, Grape, Melon and Lavender and AC glitter paper in White, Black and Blue. The pearls and gems are from my stash (I forget where all these are from :-O ) The sentiment is from the AC Minimarks book

Finally I made the Winter Wonderland Paperscape Box Card:

DSC_0005

This is such a beautiful card and all the “men” in my house were in awe!!! For this I used AC cardstock in Peacock, Sky, Cabbage, White, Storm and Lavender and AC glitterpaper in White. For the front panel I used a patterned paper from BoBunny’s Altitude Collection. The purple gems on this one are from Doodlebug Design. The sentiment (reads: Merry Christmas in Danish) I made with sketch-pens from Silhouette. Need I mention how wonderful this card looks with a color-changing LED light in the middle????

Hope you like my slightly different cards 🙂 Thanks for visiting and remember to leave a small comment ❤
