Good evening……well – it is evening now here in Denmark 🙂
I’m just popping in to show you the cutest little bunny I made last night. It’s from Dreaming Tree’s latest bundle Easter Frolics – the Easter Bunny Egg Box:
She is made from AC Cardstock in White, Bubblegum, Lemon and Apricot along with Swiss Dot Cardstock from Bazzill in Purple and Pink, Orange and Green glitter cardstock. The facial features are made from black pearl paper and the freakels are Ranger Enamel Accent in Black. All the panels are embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder and I used lots of pop dots for the face, body, arms and feet along with the bow to give it the right dimension.
I dotted the eyes and feet with a White Sharpie and added a small flower gem to the center of the bow.
Now I did say “cute little bunny” but she’s really not that small at all. She can hold LOTS of chocolate Easter eggs 😛 A real treat for the youngsters (and people like me 😀 )
As always with Dreaming Tree the assembly is very easy (did mine without the tutorial) and smooth and in case you just want to get the bunny, you can get her seperately here.
Thanks for stopping by and please brighten my spirits with a small comment on your way out ❤
I am finally getting into the game again. Being sick is just horrible for someone like me. Someone who always has to have something to make….to create….to play with. Being forced to lay in bed for a week is torture not to mention one more week of endless coughing, sneezing and a brain that’s just gone completely blank. URG!
Well finally there’s a light at the end of the tunnel and I managed to stay up and do a bit of crafting. And I threw myself at Dreaming Tree’s cute little Dogwood Mantel Clock:
I used AC Cardstock in Chestnut to make the clock along with patterned paper from Graphic 45 “Rare Oddities” and some wood patterned paper from Kaisercraft. I also used some gold pearl paper for some of the clock detail and more pearl paper in mint, purple and light purple for the flowers. Finally I found some large jewels in my stash for the center of the flowers.
The only thing I thought that was missing for this clock, was the ability to light it up from the inside, so I made it possible by cutting the clock face through all the front layers and added some vellum behind the clock face.
Now I can tell time in the dark too 😉
This was such a nice little rebound project for me and I feel somewhat like my old self again – about time!!!
Thanks for joining me – please remember to leave a small comment if you liked my little project.
My Mom’s birthday is tomorrow and I just want to show you what I made for her (we celebrated today so now it’s ok for me to show you 😀 )
Dreaming Tree recently released the Cupid Crush Bundle and this is where you’ll find the Love Blossom Pop Up Card.
I did alter my version a bit – leaving out some of all the hearts. I also added three flowers from the Apple Blossom Lantern, also from Dreaming Tree, to the front of the card.
I made the card itself from a piece of Prima “Raspberry Tea Collection” paper. Then I added some white pearl paper that I embossed with a Tuscan Tile pattern.
The flowers are made from AC Cardstock in Rosebud and Shrimp and the leaves are in Grass. Then I added some white pearls along with some gold sequins, Doodlebug jewels and a gold embellishment I happened to have in my stash.
The card is a pop up card and here’s a look of the inside of the card:
It was this gorgeous lush flower that sold this card to me!
I made it from vellum that I inked with Prima chalk ink. The flower center is made from green vellum and the leaves are AC Cardstock in Grass and Key Lime.
So that was the card.
I also made her a flower decoration:
This is the Mothers’s Day Bon Bon Bouquet again from Dreaming Tree.
I changed out the heart on the front with a Peony flower from the Peony Gift Box also a Dreaming Tree design.
The box is made from AC Cardstock in White and decorated with panels made from Prima “Raspberry Tea Collection” paper.
The Peony is made from AC Cardstock in Rosebud and Cotton Candy with leaves in Leaf and the center is Banana.
The Bon Bon Flowers are made from AC Cardstock in Rosebud, Shrimp, Cotton Candy, Latté and Robin’s Egg and the leaves and tendrils are made from Leaf and Mint.
All edges are inked with Prima Chalk ink.
I’m very sure my Mom loved it – she loves everything that I make her 😀
Happy 69’th Birthday tomorrow Mom!
Yay….I’m back on my blog. My absence has not been voluntary but due to a nasty fall last week that has left me with a sprained big toe so walking is not the easiest. So I’ve still been able to craft (only death or paralysis can keep me away from that) but I haven’t been able to shoot any decent pictures of my projects. But today….finally…..I was able with some help.
You’ve properbly seen one or two of my downsized houses and since Winter is still around yet Spring is around the corner, I thought I needed some end of winter/spring decor around the house. So I made these three downsized projects.
First of is the Asian Pagoda from SVGCuts Spring Blossom Kit
This cutie is downsized to by 50% and that made it a bit more tricky to make even though I think it’s pretty easy. Just not much room for fat fingers in some of the corners 😉
I made it from AC Cardstock in Grapefruit, Peach, Pansy, Spinach, Pacific and Vanilla along with patterned papers from Graphic 45s Secret Garden and Botanical Tea.
All edges are inked with chalk ink pads from Prima and the tiny gems are from my stash.
This is totally cute in this small size ❤
Next I made the Ferris Wheel from Summer Street Carnival Kit:
This one is also downsized by 50% and I must admit that it was much easier and fun to make it in this small size or maybe I’ve just practiced a lot more since last time I made it in full size.
I used AC Cardstock in Grapefruit, Grass, Coffee, Banana and Vanilla along with patterned paper from Graphic 45s Time To Celebrate.
I inked all edges with chalk ink pad from Prima, used hibachi skewers for the wheel and the carts and used some Doodlebug Sprinkles as embellishment.
I originally wanted to install lights in this but thought about it and not everything I make has to have lights 😀
Finally I made the Castle from Dreaming Trees Enchanted Winterland Bundle:
Like the two other projects, I downsized this one too by 50% and it didn’t make it any less cute 🙂 It was a bit tough to reach into some of the places and gluing down the middle building to the large tower, but otherwise it just went together like a charm.
I used AC Cardstock in Grapefruit, Turf, Ocean and Pansy along with patterned paper from Graphic 45s newest collection Fairie Dust and Best Creation White Glitter Paper.
I inked all the patterned paper edges with Chalk ink pads from Prima and found some small pearls to stick and glue on tooth picks for the flags and roofs of the towers.
In this one I have installed light and I went for the “Winter-is-over-and-the-snow-is-melting-in-Fairie-Land” kinda look 😀 I think I succeeded 🙂
Tomorrow I’ll be back to show you a project that I finally managed to finish and that is something out of this world 😉
Thanks for visiting today – hope you’ll come back tomorrow to find out what I’ve been up to 😉
Hello again and Happy Sunday.
It’s New Years Eve tonight (Yay) and that is a special occasion around my house. My hubby and two boys are more excited for this evening than for their Birthday or even for Christmas. So naturally we make a big deal out of it – even if we’re only 4 or 5 people around to celebrate it.
Every year I make decorations for New Years Eve and some is kept for next year and some don’t survive (yes it gets pretty wild around here)
This year I set my eyes on the new Candles in Three Sizes for LED Tea Lights from an upcoming kit from SVG Attic. Watch for it in a set next summer for early Christmas crafting. You can also find the Candles in the Snapdragon Snippets store or in the Silhouette Design Store.
These are very easy to make and I made all three in a jiffy. I decided, that since they are meant as decor for New Years Eve, I not only wanted them to be candles but to look like small crackers/fireworks as well. The little “fuse” or paper flame is included with the candles and is simply assembled by rolling it on a pencil or something similar and gluing the tube together. Then curl the long strips. I just put it over the LED flame but you can also glue it inside the candle hole.
I made the candles in AC Cardstock in Black and decorated them with AC POW glitter paper with a chevron pattern in silver.
And what is New Years Eve without Champagne or Champagne glasses?
So I made two 3D Champagne Glasses from the JGW New Years Celebration kit
I didn’t use acetate on mine or decorated them with gems or stones but kept them in the same color scheme as the rest of my decorations: Black, White and Silver. I don’t plan for using them for candy but I might use them as candle holders – a LED Tea Light fits perfectly in them.
I used AC Cardstock in White for the glasses and decorated them with AC POW glitter paper in Silver and Black. On the top of the glasses I put some glitter washi tape from my stash.
I must say that these were also very easy to make. The trick is to use a pencil or wooden dowel inside the stem as it helps to hold the top onto the stem and makes it more sturdy.
But wait…..there is more 😀
Next is the Rocket Lantern from Dreaming Tree.
This was very easy to make and I didn’t change much except the colors, left out the pipe cleaners and added some extra stars.
It is made from AC Cardstock in Black and decorated with AC POW glitter paper in Silver. I added a color shifting LED light into the rocket and it’s ready to fly 😉
Then I made a banner:
This one I found in the Silhouette Design Store (design #64583) and it’s designed by Lori Whitlock. I just love the intricate design – almost looks like lace and I found it perfect for my New Years Eve decor. It’s written in Danish and says “Happy New Year” 🙂
I made it in Black AC Cardstock and backed it with silver glitter paper – don’t you think it’s unbelievably beautiful? This one can last some years as I didn’t write any numbers on it 😉
Instead I made those numbers – 2018 – from Lori’s 3D Simple Numbers that also found in the Silhouette Design Store (#125495)
I stayed true to my color scheme and made them in AC Cardstock in Black and White along with POW Silver glitter paper. My intention is to let a LED Light String run through the letters for some extra attention 😉 I also think I might have to use a pop dot to hold them upright through out the night 😉
I also made a bottle tag 😀
This one can also be found in the Silhouette Design Store (design #239620), is designed by Daniela Moscone and is very straightforward to make. I used pop dots on the 1 and the 0 for some effect.
It’s made of AC Cardstock in White and Black along with POW glitter paper in Silver and Black.
Finally I made place cards and these I also found in the Design Store (design #238336) and they are designed by Studio Ilustrado.
I altered them a bit by removing the clock and making the zero in several layers to make a shaker card effect and used some black glitter along with silver stars inside. The card itself is also made from AC Cardstock in Black and White with POW Silver glitter paper.
I hope I can show you some before and after shots of the table and the decor (so you can see the mayhem and destruction 😀 )
Well that was what I had to show you today. I wish a Happy New Year to all of you and hope to see you a lot more in 2018
The promised before and after shot:
Just a quick post to show you my latest project – the awesome Midnight Manor from Dreaming Tree…..Oh Ron you simply outdid yourself this time ❤
This cool Haunted House is made entirely from AC Cardstock in Black, Stone, Charcoal, Olive and Eggplant. I wanted mine to look really scary so I didn’t make it as colorful as the original.
The iron fences I wanted to look rusty, so I applied some cobber wax. All edges (I think 😉 ) are inked to give it a more worn down and creepy look. I also applied some Enamel Accent in Black and Orange for details on the house and on the Tombstones. Finally I used different Halloween trinkets from Tim Holtz for decoration.
Here’s some pictures of the details:
I really had fun with this one – eventhough there are a LOT of pieces to cut out and keep track of – but Leo helps you with all that in the tutorial video found here.
Here’s what it looks like in the dark:
Thanks for stopping by and please remember to leave a comment for me ❤
….yeah! I just don’t don’t think any fairies live in these houses I made. You know that I’m a Halloween-addict and therefore I just had to transform the cute Fairyville SVG Bundle from Dreaming Tree into something dark and haunted (Muah-ha-ha-ha……)
First off is the Dragonfly Fairy House aka The Horrible Hobgoblin House
For this house I used AC Cardstock in Black, Olive, Charcoal and Leaf along with Graphic 45 patterned paper “Halloween in Wonderland” and yellow vellum. I distressed and inked all the edges and embellished with different Halloween charms from my stash. I did alter the house design a bit, as I removed some of the cut outs to make it look a bit less cutecy 😉
Next is the Butterfly Fairy House aka The Wild Witchgoblin’s Crib:
For this house I also used AC Cardstock in Black, Olive, Charcoal and Leaf along with Graphic 45’s patterned paper “An Erie Tale”. The edges are also distressed and inked and the house is embellished with more of my evil charms. Love that Pentagram ❤
Last but not least is the Honey Bee Fairy House aka The Hateful Hobgoblin Harry’s Habitation:
This house is also made from AC Cardstock in Black, Olive, Charcoal and Leaf along with Graphic 45’s patterned paper “Rare Oddities” and a few trinkets from my stash.
Here are some more pictures of the houses’ details and when they are lit up:
I really had fun making these houses and they make a great addition to my ever-growing, humongous Halloween Decor Collection.
Thanks for stopping by and remember how much I love to hear from you ❤
