Challenge Card

Just popping in to show the card I made for the March Stack-a-holic challenge from DCWV.

I really like a good challenge to push myself further, cross boundaries and use new or old techniques so these monthly challenges are very welcomed 🙂

Usually these Stack-a-holic challenges have a sketch for you to follow – this is this month’s sketch:

89188728_10158396539300312_4629313908534935552_o

I try to follow the sketch as much as possible but at the same time I like to think outside the box.

Here’s my entry:

SAH Kort Marts 201

The card base, one flag and the shaker box frame is made from AC Cardstock. The rest is patterned paper from the Preserved Papers Stack by DCWV.

I distressed the edges of all the panels and fussy cut the butterflies.

I added some glitter and gold music notes to the shaker and places a few resin roses and enamels dots here and there.

The rose leaves are from the Silhouette Design Store design ID #200492 by Alaa’ K and I cut them in green pearl paper.

I hope you like this card and I would really love if you would go here and cast you vote on my card simply by liking it. The prize is a new stack from DCWV and since the new ones aren’t available here in Denmark or Europe, I would really love to win one.

Thank you so much ❤ and remember to stay safe 🙂

Fruit Salad

A while back I found a new source of SVG files…..YAY! I am a great lover of new files and new ideas or new ways to make existing ideas…..

So this new (to me at least) place is called Thaty Garcia and is from Brazill. She has loads of fun and easy-to-make files and I’m deff. going back for more, as I have my eye set on several of her files.

This time I chose to make a whole bowl of fruit salad 😉 I know that some of the fruits have been made by several other designers before but there are also some that I haven’t seen made before.

For this project I used AC Cardstock and patterned papers from the DCWV Inc. stacks: (shown below to give you an idea which goes to what) 🙂

Chateau Lavender:

and Tutti Frutti:

All edges are inked with Distress Ink in matching colors.

The hardest part with these cuties, was finding something to put inside. Had to mix candies with dried fruit and tea 😉

Here goes – lots of pictures 😉 so grab a smoothie or a cuppa and put your feet up:

AppleCaixa Macã

Æble 1

Æble 2

In case you’re wondering – it’s apple chips inside. These are so delish 😛

Pear: Caixa Pera

Pære 1

Pære 2

Feel the need to explain the content again 😀 It’s not what it looks like but dried pear and these are also very delicious 😛

Orange: Caixa Laranja

Appelsin 1

Appelsin 2

For this one I made panels by using my Studio Software – just to get a more rounded shape and then I used a Swiss Dot Embossing folder from Cuttlebug on the panels but to make holes instead of dots – to get that orange peel feel 😉

Pineapple: Caixa Abacaxi

Ananas 1

Ananas 2

This one I accidently made wrong or I closed it wrong. You’re supposed to open and close in the botton – I have my in the top instead. I also made panels for this one but only for texture which is really hard to see in the picture (it’s striped paper). Yummy dried pineapple wrapped up inside 😛

Watermelon: Caixa Melancia

Vandmelon 1

Vandmelon 2

This one comes with accent pieces on one side – I made for both sides by duplicating and flip in my software.

Banana: Caixa Banana

Banan 1

Banan 2

First time I’ve seen a banana box 🙂 How cute is that? I did make a few more brown panels for the tip than was in the file…..sorry….I’m such a perfectionist 😀

I can easy imagine this being made into a banana boat. Maybe by me?????

Strawberry: Caxia Morango

Jordbær 1

Jordbær 2

For this darling strawberry I added some panels to get a bit more rounded finish and to be able to use this gorgeous paper…..yeah yeah I know strawberries aren’t pink….duh! 😀

Coconut Drink: Caixa Coco

Kokos 1

Kokos 2

I added panels as well on this one and embossed them with a woodgrain patterned embossing folder from Crafters Companion. Inside are roasted coconut chips 😛 The straw is from American Crafts and is cut in half.

The following are Cut Fruit – as if cut down the middle: Caixa Frutas 3 em 1

Lemon:

Citron 1

Citron 2

For all of these I made panels for a more rounded finish and added some seeds from another fruit a bit further down 😉

Lime:

Lime 1

Lime 2

Same principal as above just different colors and paper 🙂

Kiwi:

Kiwi 1

Kiwi 2

For the panels that I added, I used an embossing folder from Tim Holtz/Sizzix and distressed both the embossing and the edges. I added a bit of yellow onto the embossing – all to get a kiwi texture (isn’t easy you know? ) This is also the fruit from which I borrowed some seeds for the Lemon and the Lime and also for this next one….

Apple:

Æble skive 1

Æble skive 2

These seeds are simply just enlarged and glued onto the top. This box isn’t in the original file but is very easily made with a bit of imagination 🙂

Aaaaand you made it all the way through! Hope your beverage lasted all the way through ha ha 😀

Here’s a group shot to finish it all off:
