Fall Shakers

Hiya and happy Sunday 🙂

Fall is here! Might not feel like it in some parts of the world, but the calendar says so. Soon the leaves will be dropping every where but first they’ll turn with magnificent colors – Oh I can’t wait!

To bring you in the mood, I made two cards. They were originally flat cards but I turned them into shakers. Just can’t help that urge to make it a bit more challenging.

You’ll find both cards in the JGW Harvest Wishes kit and the first one I played with, is the 3 Vintage Pumpkin Card:

For this card, I used AC Cardstock in Oregano, Butterscotch, Apricot and Rouge along with patterned paper from Carta Bella’s Collection “Hello Fall”

It is very easy to make such a card into a shaker card if you own a Silhouette Cameo. You simply undo compound path on the pumpkins and make a internal offset of those shapes. You cut these shapes 5-6 times and layer them and glue this shape unto the back piece. Then you take your first made shapes and cut them in acetate. You layer the original pumpkin piece onto the acetate and glue it down. Now you find the glitter and confetti you want to use in the shaker and gently put it into the raised shape and close the pumpkin by gluing the top piece with the acetate onto the raised shape. Voila!

I sure hope I made sense there!

Next I made (with the exact same procedure) the Leaf Flake Card:

For this I used AC Cardstock in Leaf, Apricot and Rouge along with the patterned paper from Carta Bella. The top panel of the card is cut in Rose Gold Foil Sticker paper (grrrr 😦 …..doesn’t show well on the picture) and for both cards I used various glitters and glass beads from my stash along with confetti from Nuvo.

Hope you enjoyed my post today – Fall isn’t over yet and neither am I, so look forward to more Fall projects from me.

Bewitched Cake Stand

Hello… (waving enthusiastically) … just sneaking in today to show you a very fun project I’ve been working on this last week. 🙂

I got the idea from a friend who showed me this picture:

40684094_241544659753572_7144910669375078400_n

First I thought “corny” but then I kept thinking about it and wondering if it could be made in paper. And….yeah it could!

Roaming through files I found that SVG Attic had the right files for it, so I started building.

I wanted mine to be a Halloween inspired Cake Stand and I gathered the files I needed for this: The 3D Witches Boot from the JGW Bewitched Botique kit, the Sunflower 3D Cake Stand from the JGW Sunflower Sunshine kit and the Cats & Pumpkins Hollow Centers Wreath.

I also made the Mini-Candy Cauldron also from the JGW Bewitched Botique kit to sit on top of the stand – I would have liked a cupcake but just didn’t feel like baking 😉

This is how it turned out:

DSC_0009

It’s made from AC Cardstock in Leaf, Black, Melon, Grape, Carrot and Charcoal along with some Purple Pearl Paper, Gold Foiled Cardstock and patterned paper from Doodlebug’s Collections “Boos and Brews” and “Booville”

I used the stem part from the Cake Stand to make the legs (just made it a bit longer) and added some glitter tape onto for striped socks. Inside the legs are two 3/4″ dowels for support.

DSC_0004

The top part of the cake stand is reinforced underneath with 4 platform shaped pieces and the legs are glued unto it with hot glue. I chose to use the Cat and Pumpkin Wreath to place on the top for a fun decoration.

DSC_0008

The boots are downsized by 50% to fit the size of the Stand and the legs are glued into them also with hot glue. I added some glas stones into the boots for weight so the whole stand gets more sturdy.

I used twine, various Doodlebug sprinkles and the small patches etc. that comes along with the boots.

DSC_0012

For the Cauldron I used gold foiled cardstock for the handle and chose to use the spider tag on which I doodled two small eyes and added a black gem.

DSC_0011

Actually it’s a pretty easy projects when you think about it – it’s all about getting that idea. Thank you Sandy for providing me with it. ❤

DSC_0001

Thanks for joining me today – I really hope you like this wacky project. A fun centerpiece on the Halloween table or as decor in the living room….endless possibilities. 🙂

Autumn Wind

Nothing is more beautiful than Autumn – in my opinion anyways. I just love this season! The colors are amazing and astonishing, the light is so warm, sky blue, wind is cool and then there is the promise of cold snow….ahhhh can’t wait!!!! 🙂

It is also the season for storms and lots of wind. The best time of year for the Wind Turbine industry at least here in Denmark and we have lots of Wind Turbines. My hubby works in the industry….so I know this is a busy time of year.

Now I don’t have files for a Wind Turbine….at least not yet (*wink* *wink*) but Jodi made the most gorgeous Dutch Windmill this Spring (find it in the Dutch Treat Kit), and that is close enough. So I tied the two together – the season and the Mill and got a beautiful Autumn 3D Windmill:

DSC_0005

I made this out of AC Cardstock in Coffee, Leaf, Wine and Apricot along with patterned paper from Prima “Amber Moon” – a gorgeous collection from last year.

I found it fairly simple to make and assemble but you have to follow the tutorial (found here) thoroughly as it’s a complex but very genius construction.

I inked all the edges with distress ink from Ranger and chose to use hot glue for the attachment of the wing part.

Then I decorated with some small pumpkins from Ideaology and leaves from Prima along with a large Prima flower.

DSC_0006

I really love how versatile this Mill is – just ready to be decorated for whatever season or holiday.

DSC_0011

This Mill actually went to a lady in the Netherlands – the Mother of my son’s gamerfriend. I thought it very fitting to give it to her as a thank you for her welcoming Magnus into her home in February when we visited and for letting her son join Magnus and his Dad on a trip to Germany a couple of weeks ago, where they visited a Gamer Convention.

Ok – enough from me today. Hope you enjoyed it and please do leave me a small comment below. I love to hear from you ❤

Oh Baby

Hello – Just peeking in today with a little blog post. Seems to be a baby boom going on 😀 This is the second baby project in a row for me.

This time I made the cute Baby Peeking Cascade A7 Card from the Oh Baby Kity.

DSC_0030

This darling card is made from AC Cardstock in White, Marine, Wave, Sky, Blush, Black, Sunflower, Mint and Clay along with patterned paper from Primas Baby Boy Collection.

All edges are inked with Distress ink and the clothes line, is a piece of twine. The two small clothes pins and the two small dots on the sentiment, I found in my huge stash.

DSC_0032

It is to be used as a Baptism Card, so I changed the wording on the tag to say “Congratulations” in Danish.

I just love everything about this cutesy cascade card. That baby face is just to die for ❤

Thanks for joining me today – I really love your visits and please leave a comment below to let me know how you like my card 🙂

To a darling Princess

As you already know our DT member extraordinaire Beth Ficus just had a precious little girl and this is what I chose to make for her:

DSC_0016

The cute and fun little 3D dove from the JGW Heartfelt Delivery kit.

It’s made from AC Cardstock in Vanilla, Black and Carrot along with patterned paper from Graphic 45’s Gilded Lily Collection.

I did add a small crown in pink glitter paper – after all it is for a Princess. The crown is the 3D Adjustable Crown from SnapDragon Snippets that I found in the Silhouette Design Store (Design ID #19849) and I downsized it a lot to fit the birdy’s head.

DSC_0015

Now all I need is to put it gently in a small box and ship it all the way across the sea to Beth – or rather to darling Autumn Rose.

Thanks for visiting – hope you like the little baby project that I made and all the other Baby projects for Beth from the SVGAttic Inspirational Team. Here is a link to those beautiful projects.

Pretentious Turkey

Happy Sunday and welcome back – so great of you to visit!

Scrolling through files, in order to find projects that I haven’t made or have saved for later, I found the cute 3D Turkey from the  JGW Turkey Trot kit.

Thumnail front BLOG

I always thought he looked so cute and a bit …. hmmmmm….. shall we say less intelligent 😉 (after all he is a Turkey) but I also saw something else…..and it was NOT a Turkey.

Well I saw a Peacock and that was what I wanted to turn him into….a Pretentions Turkey. Not surprising that I saw that, because Peacock and Turkey are kinda relatet – both belong to the order of Phasianidae – Pheasant birds.

Anyways – I made the body like the Turkey only to switch out the head ornament with that of a Peacock that I made from a Dandelion file from The Silhouette Design Store (Unfortunently the file is discontinued) and left out the Wattle.

Then I made the tail – very simple. I took the tail part and the panels and sized it up two times for the next two layers and cut them into singles – then I added them behind the first tail.

Well enough talk – here he is……the Pretentious Turkey:

DSC_0010

And a side view to see the pretail too:

DSC_0007

The Peacock feather pattern I added to the feathers is also a Silhouette Design Store File – Design ID #78856. It’s a set but I just used the first upright feather.

DSC_0012

So in order to make this pretentions bird, I used AC Cardstock in Emerald, Shamrock, Marine, White, Black, Chestnut and Shadow along with shimmery paper in Blue, Light Blue, Green, Yellow and pearl paper in black. For the side wings I used some patterned paper from DCWV from a Texture Pad to make them look like those pheasant-kind wings that the Peacock has.


The tail did get a bit heavy due to the use of many feathers but I compensated by adding some heavy glass stones into the little box underneath the bird.


So how do you like him now? Please let me know in a small comment below and enjoy the rest of your Sunday….and have a wonderful new week too ❤

August Sunflowers

August – the last month of Summer and time for the lovely Sunflowers to follow the sun all day. Such an amazing flower a Sunflower is. Not only is it beyond beautiful but it also provides us with food. Mmmmm Sunflower seeds.

August equals Sunflowers to me and that’s why I chose to make two small Sunflower projects to show you today.

The first is the Sunflower Hidden Giftcard card from the JGW Sunflower Sunshine kit:

DSC_0006

I made it from AC Cardstock in Mustard, Apricot, Spinach and Moss along with patterned paper from Graphic 45’s Time to Flourish Collection.
I embossed the leaf with a embossing folder from Cuttlebug, inked all the edges with distress ink and tied a small Graphic 45 tag onto the gift card part of the card…..
DSC_0002

…. because you can pull out the hidden tray for the gift card.

I also made the Sunflower card into a Shaker card by making some rings and gluing them under the top flower along with a piece of acetate. The shaker glitter is among other from Nuvo and Finnabair.

To go with this cute card, I made a small gift box – the Sunflower 3D Hex Box with Bee

DSC_0008

 

This darling little starshaped box, is made from AC Cardstock in Cranberry, Mustard, Chestnut and Apricot and decorated with patterned paper also from the Graphic 45 Time to Flourish Collection.

Instead of making the original flower center, I chose to make a chunky glitter center by gluing all kinds of glitter and tiny glass pearls onto a thick coat of glue. Sorry the picture doesn’t do it enough justice because it’s really beautiful.

Here are the two projects together:

More Christmas in July

Hello, – thanks for joining me today.

I want to show you a Christmas project I just made. Yes…..I want in on that Christmas in July too 😉

I’ve been meaning to make this one for a looooong time, but as you know, Jodi keeps putting awesome stuff out there so I got distracted, but now I finally succeeded.

The 3D Church Card Holder from the JGW Colonial Christmas kit:

DSC_0002

I made the Church in AC Cardstock in Vanilla and decorated with Graphic 45 papers from the Christmas Carol Collection.

DSC_0004

I inked all the edges with Chalk Ink from Ingvild Bolme and added a poinsettia from Prima to the front of the Church.

Now it’s ready come Christmas time for all the Christmas cards coming in from near or far……

….or simply as a Christmas decoration with lights in it.

Thank you for stopping by today and Ehm….Merry July Christmas 😀

Seashore

Hello and a very happy Sunday to you – thanks for joining me today.

I went to the beach today. I normally do not go to the beach, because I hate all the sand that is very hard for a walking impaired person, like myself, to walk in. I don’t like swimming in the ocean either because of all the animals (though they are adorable on film) that swim or live in the water.

But I went to the beach today to get some good pictures of my latest project.

I was very much inspired by my last project when making this – because I thought the Beach house was laking a boat, so my first impulse was to make the cute 3d Rowboat from the new Grab the Bait kit.

DSC_0013 - Kopi

I made this in AC Cardstock in Dark Kraft, Bayou, Mint and Pool and decorated it with patterned paper from Prima Marketing Inc “Seashore”.

It’s a very straightforward project to make with a great tutorial from Jodi the Designer. I inked all the edges with matching chalk ink pads also from Prima and tied a bit of hemp onto the front of the boat as a hawser.

But I didn’t stop here because I have had my eye on the adorable 3D Birdhouse Gable Style from the Liberty Lane Kit and now I knew what to do with it 🙂 My initial idea was to make it as a housewarming gift for my Mother who just moved but now all I could see was…..a Boathouse.

DSC_0013 - Kopi (2) - Kopi

It’s made from AC Cardstock in Vanilla, Bayou and Dark Kraft and decorated as the boat, with Prima Marketing Inc. “Seashore”

I did make a few changes on the Birdhouse/Boathouse.

First of all I deleted the small hole for the perch pole. Then I added a hole for the door on both the house and the panel. Then I created a kinda entry way around the door (just downsized the back panel) and made hole for the door. This was done using my cameo and the make/release compound path features. The door is made from a rectangle and a circle I welded together on the Cameo and the large and tiny window I snatched from Cyndy’s “Cabana Milk Carton” from the CG Under the Sea kit. Then I tied some hemp rope around the entry way, added some bling and a seahorse to the front of the house. And of course a tiny door handle.

DSC_0001

I embossed the roof tiles with a Darice Wood Grain Embossing Folder and used three different papers for the raised panels on the side of the house. Finally I added some vellum behind the door and the top window and left out the bottom reinforcement piece, so it was easy to put in a LED tealight. Now it looks like somebody’s home a night.

And then I went to the beach and took a couple of great shots of the whole project.

DSC_0005 - Kopi - Kopi_InPixio

I really hope you like my version of the Birdhouse – now Boathouse and the little Rowboat. Both projects are downsized to 75% of the original and are now a wonderful reminder of my hometown of Grenaa located right out to the ocean. Hmmmm…. Sonja’s lighthouse would be awesome next to these 😉

Thanks for stopping by today – please leave me a small comment below.

Be a Unicorn

I am ashamed! Very ashamed of myself. Because I didn’t send a good friend of mine something for her Birthday last week. It was in my calendar but I’ve been so busy getting ready to go on vacation, that I didn’t have time to make her anything and of that I am ashamed.

So better late than never, I’m going to send her this Unicorn Rainbow 3D Box Card….

DSC_0004

….cause I know she loves unicorns as much as I do and this will put a smile on her face and maybe….just maybe….she’ll forgive me for being so late.

I made the darling card with AC Cardstock in various colors to match the Graphic 45 paper (Fairy Dust) that I used and then I sprinkled some fairy dust in dots here and there for magic and good luck.

DSC_0006

DSC_0008

The sentiment says Congratulations in Danish and it’s written on the Magical Layered Banner

DSC_0010

It’s a very fun card to make and it won’t be my last 🙂

Thanks for stopping by today – please feel free to leave a comment to yell at me or just to tell me if you like the card 😉
