Shaggy Flower money/cheque Envelope

Hello everyone!

It was high time I used some beautiful scrapbook paper so I've decided 
this week to show you one of my favourite  creations -  a Shaggy Flower money/cheque envelope which is suitable for any occasions.
To give money someone it's not the best present but sometimes happens especially when we receive an invitation in a last minute. However, if this happens lets do this stylish :-) 

To cover the base of envelope I've used an absolutely amazing sheet of  Pion Design The Witching Hour Dark Roses scrapbook paper. 

In the top left corner you can see some stunning and easy-making flowers cut by Rosy Owl Flower Dies. To create them I used Genuine Ivory and Antic White Foamiran. I colored the edges with dark purple oil pastel to give then more dramatic view. Also added that stunning Wycinanka lace Border No.4 and some purple leaves.

For fastener of the envelope I used this Vintage Button and some white string.

 The inner side was covered with pieces of Pion Design The Witching Hour Dark Roses, Pion Design The Witching Hour Midnight Spell. 

 This is my inspiration for you all today! 
Thank you for coming around! 
See you next time!

Pumpkin flower- tutorial

Hello everyone!

Today I have  tutorial for you: "Foam Pumpkin Flower"
Let's start:
I used zephyr silk and Whimsy Lily/Poinsettia Die set. Cut out the 2 flowers and cut the petals to make individual petals.

I put each petal on the iron very quickly and pushed onto the mould. Now I have petals with details:)

I used ol pastels to coloring my petals. I rolled petals on my fingers ( only 0,5-1 cm)

Take some stamens. I added a piece of foam on the end

I attached the petals by sticking them to the foam on the stamens. I used hot glue. I add floral tape to the stalk.

Now I prepare a leaf. I used iranian foam. I made a paper pattern and cut a leaf. I put my leaf on iron ( silk temperature) . I rolled my leaf on my fingers and and shaped. I coloured with white pastels on the edge of leaf leaf and stick line.

I made a wire spring:), and ...... pumpkin with florwer is ready:)

 Do you like it?
See you:)

Hello Friend

Hello and good morning dear crafty friends. I had another play with sweet Porch Tilda... she's definitely one of my fave. Isn't she just the cutest sitting in this lovely lace die cut from Joy Crafts? And the best is; this die comes with an alphabet die cutting set. Very useful to create your own text or names to personalize your cards or craft projects.

Below you can see some close ups of my card...

Thank you so much for your visit. Have a wonderful day and bye for now.
Hugs, Karina

A fall-ish lollipop flower

 Hello everyone!
It's sunday again and that means, I am going to share a new creation with you. For this week I didn't make a traditional card - I made a lollipop flower instead and gave it a fall-ish look:

 I love to make those since there is not only room for some greetings on the back, they also make a nice home decoration.

 Base is a large paper rosette made from craft cardstock. I've put a circle from white cardstock on top of it and then a circle cut from the Jeans and Tie sheet by Maja Design. The rectangle I felt like adding to my creation to light up the colors a bit is from the Peony Avenue paperpad by Studio 75.

The mushroom was cut from brown, ivory and red-brown cardstock and then put together. I've made a few slits into the ivory cardstock and curled them up a bit and also used a white gelly marker to add a few dots to the red cardstock.

The leaves are cut from ivory, olive green and dark green Foamiran. I really seem to get a grip on that stuff! Usually I don't have an iron on my craft desk and since my craft room is on the 2nd floor and the iron is stored on the 1st floor  I went next door into one of my daughters' rooms instead and borrowed their straightener. It worked great! Then I used different tones of yellow, orang, brown and green to give the leaves a fall-ish touch.

I also added some berries, some white stamens and a small pine cone inbetween the leaves.

There is a paper straw glued into the rosette and I wanted to decorate this as well. So I've wrapped some Irene lace around it and it reminds me of the mushroom and how I'd treatened the ivory cardstock there. Then I tied a Vintage Bow charm to the paper straw as well.

Have a happy sunday everyone!
Hugs, Kathrin

Hello! Today's card contains a lot of laces :)
In our shop, we have a huge range of laces and I couldn't resist using them.
There're 6 types of laces on this card.

I glued the Button Marie to Antique Florence Frame.

I used only one Pion Design paper but the card is multilayered.

I hope you'll also love those laces.

Wish you a nice weekend
