RUST 😉

Hello – so glad you chose to visit my blog today 🙂

Just popping in with a small post, to show you the cute, fun and awesome not to mention vintage Pickup Truck from Simply Crafty Svgs, I made last night:

DSC_0007

This adorable pile of rust is made from AC Cardstock in Cranberry, Black and White and decorated with Silver Mercury Glass Cardstock from DCWV.

The headlights are two large gems from my stash that just fitted perfectly and the license plate is made using the Silhouette Sketch pen function with my Silhouette Cameo.

Here’s a rear view:

The tail lights are also two gems from my stash. The back end is decorated with a panel embossed with a Cuttlebug Embossing folder.

And a sideview:

To achieve the rusty look, I rubbed some Copper Metallique Wax on all edges and smudged on here and there too.

This truck is surprisingly easy to make – just follow along the great tutorial video Sandy of Simply Crafty Svgs made.

Such a truck needs loads of gas, so I had to make the  Vintage Gas Pump from Cre8tive Cutz too:

For this I used AC Cardstock in Pomegranate, Black and Vanilla along with a dark grey Bling Cardstock from Bazzill. This too was smudged in Metallique Wax

The hose is a piece of Hemp cord from my stash – I just love these small awesome details on the pump ❤

And here they are together:

This was a really fun and easy project to make. The truck was a bit time consuming but it has the coolest details and I really encourage you to have a go! So much more easy than it looks. Just imagine this one for Autumn with pumpkins in the back or for Christmas – driving home with the tree 😉

Thanks for stopping by today – hope you enjoyed the pictures and that you are inspired to go make your own now 🙂

 

Fish for Father

Hello again – I’m so happy to see you 🙂

Today it’s all about Father’s Day and fishing. These two go together like horse and carriage in most families – just not in mine. I mean my Dad was fond of fishing but my hubby does not want to go anywhere near a pond or hold a pole in his hand (he’s so weird) Me, on the other hand, has a great love for fishing. It’s so relaxing and exciting at the same time and the quiet around the pond – ahhhh just love it. Only problem I have, is getting the fish off the hook. YUK! I cannot touch the darn thing or kill it. So that’s where I need hubby to tag along when we go fishing. My boys are just as screamish as me so that leaves – Dad/Hubby.

Well I guess I had my own Dad in mind when I decided on making this project. In remembrance of him and all the fishing trips we took in my childhood.

Well enough with the yapping – here comes the good stuff:

DSC_0025

Every fisherman (or woman) needs a good basket or Creel to hold the fish he or she catches, and the Fishing Creel 3D Box from SVGAttic’s JGW Gone Fishing kit is just the thing.

I made it from AC Cardstock in Latte, Caramel and Coffee along with some silver pearl paper.

I also used Prima Metallic Wax Rich Copper on the edges instead of ink for a fun effect.

The brads, holding the handle and latch, are from Tim Holtz and the latch strap is made of faux leather from Cricut.

One also needs a good tackle box and the JGW Gone Fishing kit has that too:

DSC_0027

It’s made from AC Cardstock in Mint, Robbin’s Egg and Fireberry and decorated with patterned paper from a really old collection by Cosmo Cricket “Snorkel” (just because I loved the fishies)

The edges are inked with Ingvild Bolme Chalk Ink, the brads are from Tim Holtz and so is the tiny tag with the fitting sentiment on it.

Both of these boxes were so easy to make. Just follow the instructions from Jodi here and here.

What’s a fisher with out a good hat?

DSC_0029

This cute Fisherman’s Bucket Hat Favor Box from SnapDragon Snippets is a necesity for the fisher as it holds several hooks, bobber, lure and fly and it can hold treats as well.

I made it from AC Cardstock in Olive, Robbin’s Egg, Black, Fireberry, Cranberry, Vanilla and Truffle along with patterned paper from another oldie by Cosmo Cricket “Mr Campy”.

I also used some sienna colored eyelets and some scrapper floss in tan and all the edges are inked with Ingvild Bolme Chalk Inks. The tag is one I made using the Print ‘n Cut function on my Silhouette Cameo.

This one is a bit more tricky to make but not difficult at all – just more parts to keep a hold of.

How about the Fisherman himself?:

DSC_0021

This good looking fellow is the Fisherman Canister from SVGAttics JGW Summer Canisters kit. He is made from AC Cardstock in Olive, Caramel, Mint, Coffee, Robin’s Egg, Peacock, White, Vanilla, Black, Fireberry, Cranberry, Rosebud, Blush, Latte and Leaf along with patterned paper from the “Mr Campy” collection and Tungsten Bling Cardstock from Bazzill.

I also used eyelets on the hat and scrapper floss to hang the bobber on his vest and all edges are inked with Ingvild Bolme Chalk Inks.

Super fun and super easy to make.

Finally, to top it all of, is a card:

DSC_0023

This card is also included in the JGW Gone Fishing kit from SVGAttic and is called “Fishing Vest Card”

I used AC Cardstock in Caramel, Truffle, Coffee, Cranberry, Fireberry, Black and Vanilla along with patterned paper from the “Mr Campy” collection and Tungsten Bling Cardstock from Bazzill.

I was lazy (in reality I’m just really horrible at sewing) and drew the stitches onto the vest instead of sewing them using my Silhouette Cameo sketch pen.

All edges are inked with Ingvild Bolme Chalk Inks and dots are from Prima.

 

Luckily I managed to get the Fishing Pole 3D Magnetic Toy done too:

DSC_0011

Originally I had all the other things done but then I saw Jodi had made this magnificent Fishing Pole and I just couldn’t bear it not being a part of this Father’s Day set. The most cool thing about this one is that it actually works….Even my teenager is impressed!!!

It’s made from AC Cardstock in Fireberry, Coffee, Black, Cranberry and Vanilla along with the patterned paper from the “Mr. Campy” collection. The grip overlay is made from Tungsten Bling Cardstock from Bazzil along with the outer most layer of the left and right wheel layer.

Check out the assembly tutorial here

The Bobber is made from two halves that I glued together and wrapped some black washi tape around the middle.

This is a very fun project to make. I really love how Jodi’s head works and how she makes her ideas come to life. Such cool mechanisms.

There you have it – the whole chabang (minus the Fishing Pole):

DSC_0031

I’m pretty sure my Dad would have loved this set and I really hope that you do too. I think I have to go out and find a Dad, that loves fishing, and give him this set – know anybody?

Thanks for stopping by today. Father’s Day is celebrated in Denmark on June 5th which is also our Constitution Day so a few days ahead of the US. So Happy Fathers Day to you on the 17th of June.

Mother’s Day in the Garden

Hello, happy Sunday and happy Mother’s Day.

There wasn’t a shadow of a doubt about what I wanted to show you today as it is Mother’s Day. The only thing that teased me, was what to choose as SVGAttic and SnapDragon Snippets has so many wonderful Mother’s Day files to choose from.

Not that my own Mother doesn’t enjoy the garden, she just has lots of other hobbies but I know a lot of Mothers out there thrive in the green and loves to get dirt under their nails, so I went with a garden theme.

And this is what I came up with:

DSC_0006

First of is the 3D Garden Hat that I made from AC Cardstock in Brown Sugar and Straw along with patterned paper from Graphic 45’s “Botanical Tea” collection and two small silver colored eyelets.

I also decorated it with some Prima flowers from my stash in coordinating colors and a butterfly also from Prima.

This hat is very easy to make so it’s perfect for everybody both beginner paper crafters and the more advanced.

Next is the 3D Garden Spade:

DSC_0008

This one is also very easy to make and it’s so realistic,  I fear somebody’s going to bring it into the garden for shoveling 😀

I used AC Cardstock in Vanilla and Bazzill Bling Cardstock in Tungsten along with patterned paper from Graphic 45’s “Botanical Tea” collection.

I also tied some pink twine on the handle.

Then I made a flower in a pot:

DSC_0011

This is a somewhat fantasy kind of a flower inspired by Hydrangeas.

For the flower itself I used ½ styrofoam ball on which I pinned several small flowers from the Flower Five Petal Leaf Cluster cut out in Graphic 45 patterned paper (Botanical Tea) As flower center I added small sequins.

The ball is then glued or pop-dotted onto a large flower from the SDS 3D Cake Box Kit (without the candle) cut in AC Cardstock in Bubblegum. Then I cut out some leaves from the Flower Five Petal Leaf Cluster in Cricket AC Cardstock and glued them underneath the flower and placed it onto the pot.

The Flower Ball Topiary 3D Pot is made from Vanilla AC Cardstock and decorated with “Botanical Tea” paper. For filler I used some Spanish Moss. Isn’t it cute?

This project is for the bit more advanced crafters but I really encourage everyone to try it 🙂

Last but not least I made the adorable Tea Cup 3D Container also from SnapDragon Snippets:

DSC_0014

The cup is cut from AC Cardstock in Vanilla and decorated with Graphic 45 patterned paper “Botanical Tea”. The Tea Bag Tag is the small in the set and is cut from Graphic 45’s paper and decorated with a small chipboard tag from Graphic 45’s “Time to Flourish” collection and tied onto the cup with a length of scrap floss. Finally I added a Prima butterfly and filled the cup with sweets (chocolate covered roasted almonds)

This cup is rather large so if you’re not into spending a fortune on candy (like I did), you can fill some tissue paper into the cup first for filler 😉

And all together now 😉 :
