Mixed media Kraft bags - part 3

Sometimes, I want to create a masculine wrapping of a present. These bags have been decorated in a mixed media style, without a hint of Christmas.  The base for the bags are simple kraft bag and are bloged for Hobbykunst

"Every possibility" bag

The background has been made with my own stencil and distress ink.

The golden glitter chevrongs has been cut from glitter cardstock. I used Rayher's Spring Wreath dies on glitter cardstock to create the cicle in the background. The measuringtape is washi tape. The text stamp is from Tim Holtz.

Bag with metal tape.

The background has been made by covering a piece of Bazzill with metal tape. Then the paper was embossed with a Tim Holtz embossing folder. Then, the embossed tape was covered with black acrylic paint. Most of the paint was removed with a cloth while the paint was still wet. The edges has been distressed to get a "rust effect" with Vintage photo - embossing powder.

"Keep calm and craft on" bag.

The background has been made with my own stencil and black distress ink. I have added washi tape in gold and added splashes with black acrylic paint.

"Explore" bag

The mixed media motive has been made, by decorating a small piece of bazzill. The Bazzill has been dry embossed. Then I glued old pieces of lace, metal, small light bulbs, diecuts and beads. Everything is painted black, and has been dry brushed with different acrylic colours. 

the work  "explore" is a dies from Tim Holtz, dies out in craft foam and metal paper. The metal card has been glued over the craft foam.

Sun, sand and sea - A Peek A Boo card

This month, I have created a Peek A Boo card for Kaisercraft, with the Sail Away Collection.

The card is a Peek A Boo card. The image inside the window flips and changes for another image when you open the card. The window of the card was measured to fit the images on the papers. 

When you open the card, the image of the lighthouse disappears, and the sign with Sun, sand and sea appears.

The compass on the background papers have been cut out from DD731 – Card Creations Sailing Collage dies.

Let the waves hit your feet - a shadow box

This months Sail Away collection, from Kaisercraft, is a wonderful summer collection. The papers are a mixture of papers with wooden structure and sea inspiration. I have created a simple shadow box. The box was originally a wooden tray bought at a second hand shop.  

The tray was covered with the paper -  P1984 Lighthouse. I added the photos, shells and the collectables.  The photo of the beach, is from Kangeroo Island.

Folding Christmas cards - A class at Hobbykunst and a Template

This month. I am holding two Christmas card classes at Hobbykunst. During the class, we are creating 3 different cards: a shaker card, a small tea light card and a peek a boo card.

Shaker card


This shaker card is created with papers from the new Christmas collections from Papirdesign and Pion. The "Thinking of you" text is a die from Kaisercraft DD333. The circle is a dies from Rayher - Spring Wreath.

The inside of the card is simply decorated with a text from Pion.

Tea light card with template

This is a small tea light card. The card is only 10x10x2,3cm. I have used white and blue bazzill, and panels made with paper from Kaisercraft's Silver Bells collection - Carol. The Fir cone and branch is a die from Rayher. The edge of the card is made with a Decorated boarders die from Rayher. I have used a velcro lock from Rayher to close the card.

The card has room for four tea lights. 

Peek A Boo card

This card is created with Pions new Christmas papers Glistening season. The lace is from Rayher. 

The Peek A Boo card, is an interesting card. When you open the card, the image changes. When you open it, you end up with the text in the window, instead of the image.

This card shows up better in the video.

From the class:

Happy scrapping, and good luck with your Christmas cards.
