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

Christmas ornament

Hobbykunst has got the new wooden building sets whith houses, back in the shop. These are super to use inside acrylic ornaments. This makes it so much easier to build 3D inside the ornaments, if you don't have dies or want to design your own houses. 


The house has been created in thin wood. The set has two simple houses, four trees ans snow chrystals. This set is only 49Nkr in the shop, and it's simple to put together.  

The house has been painted with Chalk paint. The moose is a punch, that punches and embosses at the same time. 

The house has been put on a circle of cardstock, that has been mounted inside the ornament. Gesso an glitter has been added under the ornament. 

Materials used:

Vinterhuslandskap - Sett 2 motiv Delbar kule - ø 10 cm, 2 deler klar plast Punch - Elg med preging, str 2x2.9 cm Liquitex: Super Heavy Matte Acrylic Gel Medium 
Chalky Finish - anthracite

A mixed media horse

Today, I am showing a mixed media horse for the magazine - The papercrafting.

The horse was found at "Kremmerhuset", some time ago. I added metal charms, flowers, pieces from old type writers, pieces from old sewing machines, styrofoam, microbeads and half beads. 

I often use Liquitex heavy gel as mixed media glue. This glue will dry over night, but it is sticky, and will hold the pieces in place before it is dry. 

The horse was spraypainted white. Then I used 13 arts sprays/mists, Kaisermists, gesso and Finnabair's wax to create coloured effects.

The best day - A birthday card

Today, I am showing you a birthday card created with the super sweet "All dressed up" stamp set from LDRS creative. 
The papers are from the Tea Time paper pad. The green paper has been embossed with Timeless embossing folder.
The shape of the card has been created with the Allifair Build-A-Card Die Set. These build a card die sets are fantastic to use to create cards, because you get everything you really need in one set. 
The motive has been cut out using the Fancy circle die set and the Dotty Doilie Die set has been used to create the boarder around the motive.
Enjoy your crafty week.
