Christmas ornament

It's the end of November, and most of us have started preparing for Christmas. Christmas can be expensive for a lot of people. I have created a Christmas ornament for the magazine - The papercrafting, perfect for a little Christmas present or just for decorating your own home. 

The outside cotten ball has been created using PVA glue from Rayher and crochet thread and adding this around a balloon. There are lots of tutorials on this online. Here is the same idea, used to make a lamp shade. 

The pine cones has been hand made from Kraft cardstock. I have used scissors to cut the shapes, but you can also use dies. You can see the same basic way to create them in this video. 

The house inside, is my own design. It has been created in Silhouette studio, and cut out with a silhouette. The papers used are from one of Kaisercraft's new collections; Mint Wishes.

Wishing you a good Christmas preparation.

The North Pole - a Christmas card

This card has been made with LDRS dies and a new Christmas stamps from the Polkadoodles HSN range, Winter land papers and some of the new winter dies. 
The card has been made with the the Allifair Build-A-Card Die Set. The  image has been die cut with the Fancy Rectangles & Layers Die Set. This is a die I am using a lot. It's the perfect size for motives on a card. The silver snow boarder has been diesed out with Snowy Day Border Die Set. The holly leaves has been created using dies from the Holly Wreath Circle Die Set.

The papers used here, is from the sweet Christmas paper pad - Winter land.  The stamp is from the new Polkadoodles  Winnie Winterland Stamp set. This is so sweet.

Christmas tags

We are getting closer to Christmas. A lot of us are making the last Christmas cards and preparing tags for the presents. 

Today, I am going to give some Christmas inspiration with some tags. The tags are a set of four tags. 
The tags has been created using the sweet Holly Wreath Circle Die Set together with white carstock and a blue paper from the Polkadoodles - Winnie 'Time For Tea paper pad.
The Christmas - Word Die has been used together with a white glittery foam sheet.

Happy crafting 

A church in a bell jar

Hobbykunst has got some really sweet building sets with houses and churches. They have also got bell jars in different sizes. The largest bell jar is perfect for  little church. This church was created for the stand at Design by me in i september. Working as a designer, you often work on items a long time in advance. The church is simple to make, and cost about 150Nkr.

The church has been created with a wooden buildin set from Rayher.

The church has been glued together with Liquitex heavy gel and painted with Chalky paints. You can find several chalky paints in Hobbykunst's store. You can also find them as sprays. You can also use the sprays as paint. Just spray the paint onto a palette and paint as normal. 

I have also used a small ribbon from Rayher

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
