Allsorts - forest friends

This week at Allsorts the theme is Forest friends. Since I adore the teddies from Lili of the Valley I saw an opportunity here and made a card with just the image and some die cut flowers. The leaves I got by die cutting a large maple leaf and cutting into pieces. Simple but very effectful!


Other challenges:

Stamping sensations - Anything goes
MAWTT - Things beginning with B (bear, brown)

Allsorts - name or numbers

This week at Allsorts the theme is name or numbers. And I must start by appologizing for the crappy picture this time, don't know what happened with the lighting on this one. But I made a silhouette card by cutting out a circle shape in white cardstock. Then I diecut some butterflies and glued them behind the cardstock to create the illusion of a lasercut object. The backing paper, as well as the number 45, is in shining purple glitter cardstock, perhaps that is what messed with the camera? Or perhaps the fact that I had my first day back to work after the summer holiday yesterday, first day back after almost nine weeks of free time is always a shocker :)

Penny Black and More GDT

This month it's my turn to be guest designer for our sister challenge Penny Black and More. The theme for August is All creatures great and small and that's a walk in the park since Penny Black has loads of wonderful stamps with the cutest creatures. Like the little hedgehog that I chose. So hurry over and join the August challenge, lots of lovely prizes to be had!

Allsorts - Colours of your flag

Usually I'm very happy living where I do, but when a challenge theme like this week's at Allsorts comes along, Sweden really isn't a winner with its yellow and bright blue colours. So I toned down the bright blue to a soft nuance instead, and made the yellow more gold, otherwise this would not have ended well :) But yellow and blue, the colours of my flag, it is :)

Allsorts - poppy and/or colour inspiration

Hi all,
the challenge at Allsorts this week is hosted by Brenda and knowing her I wasn't at all surprised by the poppy theme cause she loves them :) But to make the theme a bit wider she added a mood board to be inspired by as well. So no poppies on my creation this time, but I used the colours from the inspirational picture. I masked of the moon and distressed the paper with Fired Brick, Dried Marigold and Shabby Shutters. Stamped two Penny Black trees and added a die cut sentiment.

We are sponsored by Swedish House Crafts, and that webshop is well worth a visit!

Allsorts - Fancy folds

My turn to host the challenge at Allsorts and I chose Fancy folds. So make a card with more than one fold, or fold a bag, a box, a birthday cake.
I made a gift bag, folded from white cardstock and decorated with flowers using a Sizzix die, leaves using a maple leaf die, stamped the name on a tag and printed a computer generated sentiment. It's a bag that my nephew's baby got for his christening.

Allsorts - Lavender and lace

At Allsorts this week we have a combination for you - Lavender and lace. This, I guess, sets up for some really soft, shabby chic, pastel creations. At least, that's how I interpreted it :). So my card is just that; soft, pastel, shabby chic with sewn on lace and gold embossed sentiment.
Have a lovely weekend!

Allsorts - Magical/Mythical

This week at Allsorts the theme is Magical/Mythical, so think fairies, trolls, unicorns and wizards. I wanted to try some rarely used colours from the distress ink shelf so I went for fired brick and black soot.
