Dun Dun Dun Dun …….

….we all know this tune! You know – the Theme from Jaws! A fitting soundtrack for my tiny post today 😀

The other day when I posted the Acorn Shaker, Team Member Lee Cox mentioned her idea of making a shaker card from the latest collection by Bird – Jawsome but she didn’t have the time for it, so she gave the idea to me. Trying my best to honor her wicked idea, here is what I came up with:

DSC_0002

I used the shark from the Shark Window Card and made it into a shaker card by adding 7 layers behind the front layer with the acetate. I removed the teeth on the back layers to give more room for shaking and made two front layers with teeth – one in red and one in white – to give the impression of bloody teeth. I also cut out tiny fish skeletons in white pearl paper and added a bit of red ink to make them look bloody 😀

The background paper I found in the Silhouette Design Store but any sea or wave paper could do.

The card is a freebie from the Card Bundles – the Pop-Up Slider Card from Card Bases. I added the green panels (they are actually the same olive green as the background) to give it a little extra and cut the text from red cardstock in a blood dripping font 😀

Finally I tied some red, white, grey and black raffia onto the slider (doesn’t show in the picture 😦 ) and added two small black pearls as eyes.

Here’s a little close-up:

Yummy!!!!

Thanks for stopping by to witness the twisted and bloody mind of mine (and Lee Cox’s) and don’t forget to tell what you think of this bloody fish-eating shark card 😀

Acorn Shaker

Soon Summer has ended and my favorite season of all – Fall – will be upon us in all its glorious colors and beautiful blue cool sky ❤

I must admit that I haven’t longed for Fall as much this year as the previous years cause Summer here in Denmark hasn’t been all that hot. Still when I look through my scrap papers and I find one with Fall colors, I just can’t wait ’till all the leaves turn and it again is time for hot cocoa and sweaters 😀

Today I want to show a Fall Easel Card. It’s made from two of Bird’s SVG files: The Easel Card 2 (found here ) and the Acorn Shaker Place Card from the Autumn Leaves SVG Collection (found here)

DSC_0003

For this beautiful card I used AC Cardstock in Vanilla and Olive along with patterned papers from BoBunny – Autumn Song (one of my favorite collections). I “inked” the edges of the card with some Gold Metallic Lustre from DecoArt and used some different color sequins from my stash.

I followed the instructions on making the Acorn Shaker up to the point where you use 7 layers to make the shaker. I just added 7 more layers on top of the Acorn and used gold foil on the top layer. I also made a piece for writing by making an offset of the patterned paper piece and then I added two tiny jewels as stopper.

I’m definitely going to make more Shaker Cards in the future – this was fun!!!

Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to write me a little something ❤

Colorful-lei…….

 

….sorry! Couldn’t come up with a better name 🙂

As I was playing with SVGCuts Tropical Party Kit (see previous post), I remembered that I hadn’t made Bird’s gorgeous Lei from the Club Tropicana Collection. So I got out some bright colored cardstock from AC and started cutting out all the flowers. I didn’t make the spacers cause I borrowed the idea from SVGCuts to use straws as spacers and in practically no time I had my fantastic Lei:

All ready for summer parties or pride 😉

The only thing I regret is that it doesn’t match the rest of the projects I made from Bird’s beautiful collection last year:

Thanks for stopping by ❤ and do leave me a small comment ❤

 

I’m baaaack…….

…..from a nice Summer Vacation in Barcelona, Spain. It was HOT!

But that’s not what I’m about to show you 🙂 During my vaca, my youngest nephew graduated from Business School and I had made a present and card for him before leaving for Spain.

The card I made is designed by Lori Whitlock and found here or here. It’s called an Insta-Cube Card and it really fun both to assemble but also to receive:

DSC_0005

It is a very clever design that folds into the flat “envelope-type-box” but pops instantly into a box when pulled out of the envelope. I altered the embellishments on mine to make it fit the occasion of graduation and in the right colors as well. I used AC Cardstock in Crimson, Storm and White along with Carta Bella Gold Foiled Dotted paper and MMEs On Trend paper. The sentiments reads “Congratulations”

You’ll find the tutorial for the card here

For the present I made the Lucky Coin Box from Dreaming Tree:

DSC_0011

I made mine a bit different from the original to make it fit the present inside: A whole bunch of coins (10 kroners Danish currency) So I made the top of the lid a bit like the design on the coins (with the Queen and all) and made a graduation hat out of the Police Hat from the  Police Gift Box and the lid from the Octopus Cookie Box both from Dreaming Tree.

I used AC Cardstock in Chocolate, Black, White and Wave along with Gold foiled paper and a small red glittery dot as embellishment.

Here’s another pic of the box:

I was so pleased when my nephew wrote me to thank for the gift and told me how much he liked it 🙂 Mission accomplished !!!

Ok….so now I go unpack from my travel……Nahhhhh!!!! I want to spend the entire weekend crafting cause I’m FAAAAR behind on new bundles and kits from my favorite SVG pushers and I need to get rid of my heavy crafting withdrawals.

Thanks for stopping by and please let me know if you like this project ❤

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:

DSC_0007

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:

DSC_0009

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:

DSC_0011

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 ❤
