Springtime Bouquet

Hello again ๐Ÿ™‚

Just popping in for a quick little post on the cute Spring-y flower bouquet I made last night ๐Ÿ™‚ The flowers being from the devine bundle from Dreaming Treeย Alluring Florals.

I was going for only making the Gardenias, but it got too white and neutral for my taste, so I made some more flowers to make a small but very cute bouquet and put it in a Mason jar. Then I tied some hemp ribbon in a bow on the jar.

But to start with the Gardenia:

It’s made from AC Cardstock in White, Pine and Mint. I didn’t chalk the flower petals but only the stems and the leaves.

This is by far the easiest of all the flowers to make ๐Ÿ™‚ Imagine a whole bouquet of them as Wedding Bouquet โค

To make this bouquet extra Spring-y I decided to make a Daffodil too and I used the one from the Daffodilly Spring bundle.

I used AC Cardstock in Banana, Melon and Spinach for this Daffodil and inked all the edges with Ingvild Bolme Chalk Ink ๐Ÿ™‚

To mount it on the stem, I just used the same technique as for the rest of the flowers ๐Ÿ™‚ – that went surprisingly well ๐Ÿ™‚

The rest of the flowers are the same as for theย Floral Arrangement I posted yesterday but here are some pictures of the ones in the bouquet ๐Ÿ˜‰

I really hope you like this as much as I do – maybe I’ll give that Wedding Bouquet a spin in the future ๐Ÿ™‚ I think that’ll look awesome.

Floral Therapy

Hello again and welcome back ๐Ÿ™‚

Yes! I finished myย Floral Arrangement from the amazing bundleย Alluring Florals by Dreaming Tree.

It did take me some time – partly because I was a bit intimidated by it and partly because life happened ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’m not good with flowers – I usually leave that to my sister with the green fingers and an amazing eye for arranging flowers, but I want to learn. I’m the kind of “if-you’re-not-good-at-it-get-better”-type of person ๐Ÿ˜€

So I took my time and made the arrangement. And yes…..it is therapy. All the inking and shaping – it takes time but is very relaxing and meditative ๐Ÿ™‚

And this is how it came out:

DSC_0008

For the planter I used AC Cardstock in Vanilla and Spinach along with patterned paper from Graphic 45s “Floral Shoppe” – I’m crazy about that quote: “The Earth laughs in Flowers” ๐Ÿ™‚

DSC_0009

For the Fantasy Flowers I used AC Cardstock in Mint and Orchid and inked the edges with VersaMagic Multi-Surface Chalk Ink in Purple Hydrangea.

For the Mum I used AC Cardstock in Cantaloupe, Bubblegum and Spinach and inked all the edges with matching chalk ink from Ingvild Bolme.

The Iris is made from AC Cardstock in Pansy, Cantaloupe and Mint and chalked with VersaMagic Multi-Surface Chalk Ink in “Pretty Petunia” and Chalk ink from Ingvild Bolme in matching colors.

The rose is made from AC Cardstock in Peach, Banana and Spinach and is inked with Ingvild Bolme Chalk ink in matching colors.

I couldn’t find the right paper wrapped floral stems, so I made my own from paper wrapped 18 gauge floral stems for sugar flowers and 4 pieces of Wine Twist Tie and then wrapped them in floral tape. Works just fine ๐Ÿ™‚

I would love to be able to just arrange the flowers in some kind of wild arrangement but I simply followed Leo’s directions in theย tutorial just to be safe ๐Ÿ˜€ and added Artificial Baby’s Breath where I liked it to be.

So now that that is finished, I’m moving on to the Gardenias and hope that my idea for them works out – more on that in a later post.

Thanks for joining me today – I really appreciate when you write me a small comment to let me know if you liked what I made or if you have any questions to the projects or just want to say hi โค

 

Roses are red…..

Violets are….Ehm purple???? ๐Ÿ˜€

Yeah I just had make these. Loved them from the moment I saw that new bundle from Dreaming Tree –ย Alluring Florals.

My only problem was getting the right color for the flowers as the one used by Dreaming Tree, isn’t available anymore. Oh well….my violets just aren’t from Africa ๐Ÿ˜‰ Let’s call them Danish Violets instead ๐Ÿ˜€

DSC_0009

The color I decided on is from AC Cardstock and is called Plum. I used “Banana” for the stamens and “Leaf” for the leaves. Then I chalked all the edges with a violet colored chalk from Prima (Ingvild Bolme) and just followed the tutorial that Leo made – very easy ๐Ÿ™‚

I wanted something else than the teacup to put the flowers in, so I used the planter from theย Thanksgiving Topiary also by Dreaming Tree and made it from AC Cardstock in Cascade and Peach along with patterned paper from Graphic 45s Fairie Dust.

Instead of making the small feet on the planter, I used some metal feet I had in my stash. I really love how this turned out.

I’m in the middle of making the gorgeousย Floral Arrangement from the same bundle, so watch out for that in an other post soon.

Thanks for joining me today – I really hope you liked what you saw and that you will join me again soon. โค

 

Springtime in the Netherlands

…..I can only imagine it. All those tulips! And windmills….andย water channels. I was lucky to visit close to Amsterdam this winter but I would really love to go now to see all of the gorgeous signs of Spring.

Well….I can’t go because I can’t afford it but I can bring a little bit of the Netherlands into my living room with this next project I made from SnapDragon Snippets. The files are also available in the Silhouette Design Store.

Wooden Shoe 3D Container withย Cubic 3D Tulips (just used the tulips and leaves)

DSC_0032

This cutie is made from AC Cardstock in Caramel, Cotton Candy, Banana, Rosebud, Apricot, Vanilla, Cranberry, Mulberry, Boysenberry, Lemon, Olive, Spinach and Mustard. It is decorated with wood patterned cardstock in Kraft also from AC and Graphic 45s Floral Shoppe.

The shoe I kept in the original size but the tulips are downsized by 50%.

DSC_0038

I used wooden skewers as stems and attached the flower heads and the leaves with floral tape. Then I added some flower foam and Spanish Moss into the shoe and stuck in the tulips and the leaves.

It is so easy to make – a bit time consuming with all the tulips, but it’s really not that bad.

All edges are inked with Ingvild Bolme Chalk Ink Pads from Prima.

I am so pleased with how this turned out ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope you like it too – tell me in a comment please and thanks for joining me today ๐Ÿ™‚

New to SVG Attic? Check out these awesome places!

Chocolate Favors…..and a Card.

Mmmmmm don’t you just love chocolates? I do and I also love giving it away – mostly so I won’t get any fatter from eating it ๐Ÿ˜€

Nahhhh…….in reality it’s because I think sweet people deserve something sweet and scrumptious once in a while and these cuteย Nugget Sleeves from Tracy Moon Rushton ofย Idea Closet are so darn clever and perfect for giving away such sweets.

Now living in Denmark makes it a bit difficult getting the exact same chocolates – the Hershey’s Nuggets – but I found an alternative that almost fit the same size: Anthon Berg Mini Marzipan Bars ๐Ÿ˜›

DSC_0027

Just think of the possibilities in making these sleeves….They are endless! This is just one suggestion but I see packets with baby pictures or company names on it!

I made it from AC Cardstock in white and Basic Grey patterned paper “Lemonade” (Really old collection) The flowers are from Prima and the small dots are from Doodlebug Design ๐Ÿ™‚

This is the tag to fit the sleeve:

I also made the darlingย A2 Layered Roses Card from Idea Closet:

DSC_0026

I used AC Cardstock in Vanilla, Pool, Grapefruit, Peach, Banana and Robin’s Egg along with patterned paper from Graphic 45’s “Cafe Parisian”

I used my Epiphany Shape tool 1/2″ round to make the three small epoxy charms in the top of the card and used Doodlebug dots for the flower centers. All edges are inked with Ingvild Bolme Chalk Ink pads from Prima.

To match the card I also made a small sleeve for three bars:

DSC_0025

Made in AC Cardstock in Vanilla and decorated with “Cafe Parisian” paper it matches perfectly.

The butterflies are cut out of the same paper and so is the tag that reads: “Au Chocolat” (made of chocolate)

DSC_0029

For both tags, I used the Silhouette Sketch pens and sketch feature to write the sentiment as my own handwriting is awful (should have been a doctor…..)

Thanks for joining me today – I really hope you enjoyed the pictures…..please let me know โค
