Don't let anyone ever dull your sparkle

Today, I am showing a small canvas created with the new 3D embossing folders from Tim Holtz. I tried Mechanics 3D Texture Fades Embossing Folder

The embossed paper has been glued onto a black cardboard paper. I then glued on a few card board gears and metal embellishments. I painted it black, and dry painted with different kind of paints and gesso to get the pattern to show. 

The two ballerinas are from a Tim Holtz die cut set. The flowers has been cut from Prima's Sainte Maxime papers from the St. Tropez collection.

"Ikke la noen bølle med gnisten din/ Don't let anyone ever dull your sparkle", is one of my favourite quotes. This is a stamp from Huldra - Rampestreker.

The small canvas has been added to a small Det lille lerretet er festet på et mini easel from Rayher.  

Don't let anyone ever dull your sparkle.

Four good things - a Kinder Surprise box

Today, I am showing you a Kinder Surprise box for Hobbykunst.

The box has been created with papers from Papirdesign - Sjokoladeplate and Maja design - Denim Friends.

Between the chocolate paper and the blue papers, I used aluminum foil. The text "You are my favourite person to hang around with" is from Huldra's stamp set - Apestreker.

The monkie and the text "You are monkeying around" is also from Huldra's stamp set Apestreker. Teh text stamp " No one will ever be as entertained by us as us" is from Huldra's stamp set - Venner 1.

The idea for the card came from a photo of one of Tanja's Kinder egg surprise boxes. I made my own version of this. You can find my template below.  Glue part 1A together with part 1B, part 2A with 2B and so on.

Creative with Mathia flowers

Have you tested the Mathia flowers from Hobbykunst? The flowers are so sweet, and you get a lot of flowers for your money. A packet of flowers will only cost you 20 Nkr. They are fantastic on projects where you would like to use flowers, but not spend a lot of money. 

These kind of flying cups has been shown around the Internet for some time. The cup and saucer was bought at a second hand store. 

The gears has been created with dies from a golden piece of card stock. Two gears has been glued together to make it golden at both sides of the gear. 

Spoiler - This is how you create the flying cup:

You will need a cup, saucer, a fork and some metal bits. Use a glue gun or good and strong glue, and glue the end of the handle of the fork to the inside of the mug, and the finger part of the fork to the saucer. Add and glue some metal bits to the side of the saucer, so it won't tip over. When the glue is dry and the project is stable, you may add flowers or other bits to cover the spoon and the metal bits on the saucer.

Build yourself a house

Hobbykunst got new house building sets in to the shop this spring. I had to try one of these sets. I wanted to decorate it simply with patterned paper. 

The house is the 3D Puzzle, House with veranda. It is really easy to put together. You can use different kind of glues to put it together. I used Uhu glue .

For the roof, I used the paper Coal - Christmas Edition and for the wall, I used Ivy Wall - Wandering Ivy, both from Kaisercraft. The laves on the roof are from the paper Ivy Wall - Wandering Ivy. IIn between the leaves on the roof, I added a small green wooden frog - can you see it?

The tree is available in different sizes in the shop. The pile of wood has been created with wooden pieces.

I between the leaves, I used Mathia flowers. You can get these roses in a wide range of colours for a really good price. 

At the front of the house, I have used a few garden tools in wood.

The small cat, is a toy cat I got from a flee market.
