Guest Designing for Spellbinders Dala Horse

Hi Everyone!

I'm so happy today to share another project I had so fun making. I created them with lovely dies I was sent by the super sweet Yana at Spellbinders to play with!



Last week I shared a card made from this wonderful DALA-HORSE-Etched-Dies from Spellbinders. For that card I used a very classic coloring of the horse, but today I went monochrome and I really like the outcome. For the background I used the lovely SKETCHED-BLOOMS and the background is created by stamping white on vellum using Simon-Says-Cling-Rubber-Stamp-FOLK-DANCE which I thought fit perfectly!



I shop my  Spellbinders goodies at:

Supply list from the Simon says Stamp store:
DALA-HORSE-Etched-Dies
NORDIC-BLOOMS-Etched-Dies

Hi Everyone!

I'm so happy today to share two projects I had so fun making. I created them with lovely dies I was sent by the super sweet Yana at Spellbinders to play with! 


I just ADORE these beautiful blooms - NORDIC-BLOOMS-Etched-Dies - they remind me of the lovely kurbits paintings I enjoyed at my cousin's place in Orsa in Dalarna (Dalcarnia) when I was little!



And what Swedish paper crafter wouldn't be super excited to get to play with the Swedish Icon #1 - the Dala Horse DALA-HORSE-Etched-Dies! I am in love! Will share another card using this wonderful die next week so please come back for that!!!

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge Friday Inspiratin: "Fun Folds"

Hi Everyone!

I'm here to share some more inspiration for the lates Lawn Fawnatics Challenge called "Fun Folds" . 







To make the inside of the card fold an 8x8 (inches) square piece of paper like in the first picture and then, with the folds pointing downwards (picture 2) , cut a heart through all the layers.  I used the largest of the hearts in the outside-in-stitched-heart-stackables set that coordinates with the  lacey hearts Make sure you don't cut the folds.You might have to stop before you reach the tip of the fold and maybe use a pair of scissors if the die didn't cut all the way through all those layers. 
You now have the inside of the card ready to stamp and decorate. The top should be one of the full hearts.
When you are happy with the inside diecut a lacey heart from white cardstock and a stitched heart - the same die as you used for the inside of the card - and layer them together, Decorate the front.

Now use strong adhesive to fasten the folded inside of your card to the backside of the lacey heart.
