Allsorts - bring on the bling

This week at Allsorts Tracy wants us to bring on the bling in our creations. I made a gift set with a bag and a box, same glittery silver paper on both but the photo filter on the bag makes it look softer :)
Handmade foamiran flowers and a feather for the bag and a die cut and a silver snowflake for the box. The glitter paper are decoration in itself.

Allsorts - fairy tales or nursery rhymes

This week at Allsorts Ellie wants us to be inspired by fairy tales or nursery rhymes in our creations. I used part of the nursery rhyme Rock a bye baby together with an image from LotV to create a gift tag for a baby girl.
 One lucky winner this week will get two adorable fairytale stamps from our sponsor Bee Crafty.

Allsorts - Ladies only

The theme at Allsorts this week is Ladies only and we don't mean that only ladies can join but that we want the creations to be feminine.

I made a tag and distressed it so that it wouldn't be so girly, but more aged, like for a grown woman. Not that I'm saying that when girls grow up they look rough around the edges :) I've just turned 50 myself so I know that is not true :)

and we also have an extra prize in the form of a stamp sheet from Kaiserkraft. Hop over to the challenge blog to check it out.

Birthday card

Showing off the birthday card I did for the director of our chorus Snowflake singers. Scraphuset has a challenge themed spring and I figured the soft handmade foamiran flowers - yes I burned my fingers on the iron more than once... - would suit perfectly.

Allsorts - I spy...

This week at Allsorts, Brenda is challenging us to include something beginning with the letter B on our creations.

I chose B for Baby, Blue pearls and Bear costume and made a card in orange tones, totally outside my comfort zone but I'm still rather pleased with the outcome.


We have two prizes so there will be two winners, a Tim Holtz die 'B' for Birds and Birdcage and a set of Tattered Lace dies which include 'B' for Bride.

Allsorts - handmade flowers

This week I'm hosting the challenge at Allsorts and I chose handmade flowers. So make your own flowers and add to your project. There are so many ways to create nice blossoms, maybe check out a tutorial online and try something completely new. 

I always look for new ways to create flowers so I'm hoping for some tips visiting your blogs this week. 

I made my flowers using a sizzix daisy-die, some white stamens and a flatbacked pearl. Leaves are made by cutting apart a diecut maple leaf.

Allsorts - love is in the air

We're closing in on Valentine's Day so at Allsorts we naturally have the theme Love is in the air. I made a double gift tag (so that you can write the greeting on the tag behind the decorated one. It's very sparkly but the light during winter really doesn't do it justice.

Baby gift tag

Showing off a gift tag I made for the February challenge at Scraphuset where they want creations in red or pink. A Lili of the Valley image, coloured with distress inks, some scrap paper, roses and a ribbon that is not at all the salmon colour it looks to have on  the photo :)
