Confirmation cards

Hi there!

Just popping in to show you a couple of confirmation cards i did on commission.

I believe all the paper used are from Kort & Godt. Please arrest me if i`m wrong. I accidentally tossed away the strip that had all the information so i don`t exactly remember, lol. And there it was again.....senile, lol

I don`t like the light. The pics were taken outside in daylight but i think they turned out too blue-ish. But the colours should be white / light grey.

I think these finished cutout pics are so cool. And they are perfect to use on boy cards. What i love about these papers is that all the elements you need to make a card, are all there. You have the paper, the image and the sentiment. This is awesome. 

This makes it super easy to make a card in a hurry.

Thanks for stopping by today. I wish you all a great weekend.

I`m entering these in Papirdukkene`s challenge - Anniversary

Vintage tag swap - The Bicycle tag

Hi everyone!

I`m sorry for keeping you waiting. I`ve been struggling with a heavy migrain the last couple of days, and it put me out entirely. But now i`m ready to blog my last tag for this swap.

This one is the bicycle tag.

I have aimed for a french feel on this one. Papers used are from Maja Design. The main paper is toned down using a thin layer of gesso. 

I haven`t done much to the tag itself other than layering my embellies. I think the papers are so beautiful themselves so i just created a cluster of embellies from the middle to the lower part of the tag.

The Eiffeltower is cut out from a thin chipboard and then embossed with shabby blue embossing enamel from Stampendous.

The chipboard pieces is just covered with gesso. And blinged up a bit. 

I added some flowers, a paperclay frame, some ribbon and this gorgeous metal bicycle, I think these small organza flowers are just sooooo adorable. 

For the finishing touch i added a vintage button which i think is really beautiful. 
At the bottom i put on some gorgeous yummy lace and a bling ribbon.

Well....that`s all my tags for the vintage tag swap by Martica. I have received such sweet comments from the recipients and i`m so happy they were pleased with my work. 

I really appreciate your visits. Thanks.
Have a great weekend everyone!

Vintage tag swap - The vintage typewriter tag

Hi again!

Today i will show you my second tag in the the vintage tag swap i participated in.
This one is the Typewriter tag.

This tag has lots and lots of layers and elements. I`ve tried to use up some of my scraps. I am not too good at using my scraps but throw them away....noooo, no, no, no, lol. So finally i got to make use of some of them. 

The large gears and the wings and crown are chipboard created using the Tim Holtz, Sizzix bigz dies. And then embossed in several layers. The wings turned out so silky and beautiful. Absolutely loooove them. The heart is a silver metal heart which i coloured red with my ProMarkers. I found that the red colour really stands out. 

I got my hands on these cute small glass containers. They are pretty small but makes such a pretty  addition to my creation.

I just wanted to show you a closeup of the gear. I just love how it turned out. I embossed it with three different embossing powders. Silver, copper from Ranger and midnight bronze obsidian from Lindy`s Stamp Gang.

I also love the filligree metal piece. I think it fits beautifully to this tag.

The ephemera is fussycut from a G45 paper.

On this last pic you can see all the different layers. 

To finish off my tag i put on some micro beads from Finnabair and some bling here and there. And finally topped it with some seambinding. It was originally brown but i coloured it with a bright red, allmost orange starburst spray from Lindy`s. And i think the colour looks fabulous.

Hope you like my tag, and tomorrow i will post my last tag. 
Thanks for visiting me today.

Vintage tag swap - The Vintage dressform tag

Hi there everyone!

A little while ago i participated in a vintage tag swap hosted by my friend Martica over in the states. She allways throws such fun and fabulous swaps. I`m not allways able to join in but this time i had some spare time to join. There is a lot of pics so i will post the three tags in separate posts.

First post up is the Vintage dressform tag. 

I used a large manila tag #10 and covered it with papers from Maja Design, Vintage Summer Basics.
The chipboard frame is embossed with white embossing and while still warm i sprinkled some pink micro beads onto it so it would adhere in the embossing enamel. I was really happy about how it turned out. This frame is a bigz dies from Sizzix.

I left the dressform-chippie plain as i thougt it was the right look for this tag.

 As i assembled the tag i used some digital tags i bought online from a company called "By Digital Paper". They have so much gorgeous shabby chic/vintage digital ephemera and stuff :-) You can see them behind the dressform stamped image. (The ones with the bird and the flowers.)

A little tip for you all. When you want to make some space between all your layers, it is great to use scraps of chipboard instead of the expensive foam tape. When i buy chipboard i allways save the scraps so i can use them behind images or other embellishments. So it`s a great way to create some dimension to your project. It also makes your project more sturdy. 

Thanks for taikng the time to visit. Hope you liked my first tag. Stay tuned and tomorrow i will show you the next tag i have created for this swap.
