Gift basket with template

Some time ago, I got a challenge from Hobbykunst. "Use as many Rayher dies as possible in one project". Since it is Christmas soon, I combined the challenge with a gift basket for Christmas. THis is super for "the small gift", gift cards or a bit of chocolate.

The papers are not traditional Christmas papers. The papers are form the paper pad Shell Rummel - Bloom Beautiful. A paper pad is super sweet, with papers in blue, green, white and silver. It has patterns with flowers and feathers. 

I found a lot of the Rayherdies I had, that was Christmas inspired, and created a bunch of die cuts. 

The basket was created by adding two sidepieces together (from the template below). Then I added a strip of paper as handle. I used a stencil from Tim Holtz with gesso on the paper at the front, to create some effect on the background paper. 

I  used diecuts of the wonderful snowmanpine branchPoinsettiacircle og birdhouse with twigs.

The diecuts has been glued onto 3D tape, to add a 3D effect. 

Materials used:

Bazzill: Fourz - Avalanche Shell Rummel - Bloom Beautiful UHU Flinke Flasche - Universal lim, 90 g Prima: White - Art Basics Heavy Gesso 
Rayher: Snowman set - Dies Rayher: Spring Wreath - Dies, str 1-6.5 cm Winter birdhouse - Dies,  Rayher: Christmas star - Dies 
Rayher: Fir cone and branch - Dies

Christmas ornament

Hobbykunst has got the new wooden building sets whith houses, back in the shop. These are super to use inside acrylic ornaments. This makes it so much easier to build 3D inside the ornaments, if you don't have dies or want to design your own houses. 


The house has been created in thin wood. The set has two simple houses, four trees ans snow chrystals. This set is only 49Nkr in the shop, and it's simple to put together.  

The house has been painted with Chalk paint. The moose is a punch, that punches and embosses at the same time. 

The house has been put on a circle of cardstock, that has been mounted inside the ornament. Gesso an glitter has been added under the ornament. 

Materials used:

Vinterhuslandskap - Sett 2 motiv Delbar kule - ø 10 cm, 2 deler klar plast Punch - Elg med preging, str 2x2.9 cm Liquitex: Super Heavy Matte Acrylic Gel Medium 
Chalky Finish - anthracite

A mixed media horse

Today, I am showing a mixed media horse for the magazine - The papercrafting.

The horse was found at "Kremmerhuset", some time ago. I added metal charms, flowers, pieces from old type writers, pieces from old sewing machines, styrofoam, microbeads and half beads. 

I often use Liquitex heavy gel as mixed media glue. This glue will dry over night, but it is sticky, and will hold the pieces in place before it is dry. 

The horse was spraypainted white. Then I used 13 arts sprays/mists, Kaisermists, gesso and Finnabair's wax to create coloured effects.

Christmas tags

Today, I am showing you with some pre Christmas inspiration. November is one of the Christmas shopping months, and a lot of us are looking for those simple, but nice tags for the presents.
Have you seen the new ornament dies from LDRScreative? For these tags, I have used the new Peace ornament die. These are so sweet, and fantastic to use to create simple ornament tags. 
These tags has been created, just using the dies together with white and blue cardstock. Two of the tags, has been created as shaker tags, with beads inside the ornament. I have also decorated with flowers and gesso with white glitter. 
The tags are ready to be used for the first Christmas presents.

Today, I am showing you a birthday card created with the super sweet "All dressed up" stamp set from LDRS creative. 
The papers are from the Tea Time paper pad. The green paper has been embossed with Timeless embossing folder.

Christmas Wishes layout

This layout has been created with the new Mint Wishes collection from Kaisercraft - a super sweet collection. 

I decided to use two of the same patterned papers with the trees as background paper, to create the mirror image of trees in the ice.

I use wooden papers to create the bottom edge and used some of the collectables and wooden embellishments as decoration.

The trees have been created with Kaisercraft tree dies.

The animals, are black and white photos in different sizes.


Photo: Fussy cut animal 3cm, 5cm and 6 cm (1 ¼”, 2” and 2 3/8”) tall.

Cut a piece of FOREST (reverse) 13,5cm (5 3/8”) from the bottom, keeping the forest part of the paper. Cut a second FOREST (reverse) paper 19 cm (7 ½”) from the bottom, keeping the forest part of the paper. Keep the smallest piece of paper at the top. Turn the largest piece of paper up side down, and glue it underneath the top paper. The paper should be 29,5 cm (11 5/8”) tall together. The two papers should show a forest just above the centre of the page, and the reflection of the forest underneath. Cut the side of the page, so the page now measure 29,5cm x 29x5cm (11 5/8” x 11 5/8”). 

Mount black cardstock behind the background paper, to create a black frame behind the layout. 
Tear pieces of FROSTED (reverse), and add the to the bottom of the page. Leave the FROSTED (reverse) 4cm to 6cm from the bottom of the page. Add the layers of FROSTED (reverse) paper strips with 3D foam tape to add dimension. Add a thin 1cm teared strip of FROSTED (reverse), just below where the two pieces of FOREST (reverse) paper meet, at the centre of the page.

Die cut trees with the Fir Trees die from the FRESH PINE and left over from the light part of the FOREST (reverse) paper. Add some gesso to some of the trees. Add the trees above the FROSTED (reverse) paper strip, to create dimension to the forest. Add some of the greenery from the Collectables in between the trees. 

Create tussocks with the grass die from the Decorative Die and Stamp Tropical Beach and FRESH PINE paper. Create two leaves from the leaf die from DD707 Layerd Flowers and FRESH PINE paper. Add gesso to the leaves. Add the tussocks along and just underneath the teared FROSTED (reverse) paper at the bottom of the page. Add the white flower from the collectables to the bottom left side of the page. Add the leaves underneath the flower. Add tiny green pearls in the centre of the flower. Add the text “Be Jolly” from the Flourish Pack to the bottom right side of the page. Create to banners with left over paper from FROSTED (reverse) and FLANNELETTE. Add the Christmas Wishes circular collectable to le left of the “Be Jolly” text, with the wo banners sticking out from the left side of the circle. Cut out the words “Believe”, “Peace” and “Joy” from the FRESH PINE (reverse) paper and add these around the forest part of the page. Add the animals to your layout on the mirror part of the forest on the background paper. Add green and white beads.
