Med Ljus och Lykta - my Hanglar & Wings card for today


Good morning everyone hope you are all keeping warm on this cold day :)

Today I want to share with you my Christmas card using the lovely Med Ljus och Lykta which is a sweet set especially if you love snowflakes like me




I have coloured the image with pencils on kraft (my favourite) and tried to obtain a light effect around the lantern.


In this set there are two sentiments - one says Merry Everything and the other one says We are like Snowflakes all different in our own beautiful way .... and we are are :)


I have stamped the snowflakes on kraft paper and heat embossed them and then cut them off and glued them around the image.


Added on lots of nuvo drops around the project


That's it from me today and I wish you a pleasant week ahead...

Laserowe Love Decorative Christmas Ornament & Scrap Boys Cotton Winter paper


Did you ever have something pictured in your mind and wanted it to materialise? Well this is one of them :)

Hi everyone it's me again here with you today to show you what I have been up to with this Laserowe Love Decorative Christmas Ornament available from our shop on pre order.

There are various other shapes to choose from and you can hang these on your tree or as a wall décor.




What I did first was choose the base paper and this time am using the lush paper pad from Scrap Boys called Cotton Winter. Link to it is down below. I chose these two deer in the centre as my design.


I have then applied frayed burlap distress ink and faded jeans distress ink and sprinkled some gesso too to give it a vintage distressed look.


I decided to decorate the very tip and the top of this bauble shape. I fussy cut the paper and chose my base items and layered it all.


I have created the foamiran flowers with Rosy Owl Ponsietta dies from our shop and used some festive berries distress ink for the colour on the flowers. The pomegranates come in various colours so you can adapt any colour to your projects.


I have then added on some cones and small stars all around and sprinkled glitter and stickles on the project.


I hope you will give this a try as it's something you can keep on using year after year.

Lots of love

xoxo

Hanglar & Wings Cookie Gift Bag


Hello everyone Claire here with you again for my weekly entry @ Hanglar & Wings

Today I have created a white gift bag which I have decorated with loads of embellishments.


This cute stamp is from the Pepparkakstjej stamp set where basically you have the lovely image of this cute lady, two sentiments and a heart button


I have pencil coloured the image on kraft paper and stamped the cookies sentiment on the side.


Can you spot the heart stamp buttons around the wreath?


I stuck to the orange and green theme and added on lots of flowers over a wreath around the image.

I am gifting this one to a special friend of mine :)

Wish you a great week ahead

Mintay Old Manor





Hi everyone! Another Sunday is here and I am sharing with you today my latest creation using Mintay Papers - Old Manor.




This is another mixed media project from me - I have formed the foamiran flowers using Lady E dies Flower 004 and I have used distress ink blue and brown on them to give them that teal shade




Metal embellishments are from the shop, you can find link to all products used hereunder.


I used the new Laserowe Love lower case alphabet chipboard to create the word friend. Gold pomegranates around the flowers have been distressed with gesso.


The stamens are matt white - you will find all the colours that you need in our shop.

I don't know if you can spot the sisal (grey) under the round ring - I love the effect that gives to my projects.

In the meantime I wish you a great week ahead and looking forward to sharing more of my projects with you in the coming weeks using the lovely designer papers we have in our shop :)

Lots of love

Mintay Star wall decor



Happy Sunday everyone! Claire here sharing with you my mixed media star décor which was something I had been meaning to create for sometime.



Lots of products used on this one. First of all I created the foamiran flowers using the Rosy Owl dies. I used festive berries ink on them to give them a reddish colour. Berry and pearl stames in the middle and lots of glitter.


Then I have mixed two types of paper. Mintay Home for Christmas and one sheet from Lemoncraft.

I have cut into pieces some Gwendoline lace and placed it in different areas.


The chipboard around the central picture is from Bloomar. Lots of different shapes to choose from.


The star is a free form which I drew myself and then cut two other small ones and used foam to pop them up on top of each other.


Added on glitter and gesso as usual all around.

Wishing you a lovely week ahead :)

Lots of love

xoxo
