Garden Gnome

Hello and good morning everyone, although it is Halloween today I am showing you a springlike card I recently made, using the cute Garden Gnome by Whimsy Stamps...

I colored this sweetie with Distress Inks and added few white accents.

The chipboard sentiment is perfect for this card...

I used the Leaf Border twice as a border around the image...

I wish you a happy day now. Thank you for your visit.
Hugs, Karina

CRAFTEEZEE COLLECTION - Yuletide (Using up scraps)

Hello everyone.  I am here again today with some more inspiration using the lovely Crafteezee Collection.

First of all, for those who do not know, these are Limited Edition.  This month is YULETIDE.  It is a collection assembled by Tracy, who tries to source ALL NEW items each month, focusing on her favourite things.  If there are any left over these go into the store, and if not just those that purchase the kit will receive. Each month is a different theme and the next one will be Art Deco.   Don't miss out, hop on over HERE to order your kit.

So, onto what I made using the Crafteezee Collection:

This is a lengthy post, so grab a cuppa.

I sat looking at what I had left in the Crafteezee Collection box and went about using up what was left plus some scraps of my own.  Those who know me will know I love using up scraps!  So I ended up with a trio, but then I made a further project, so it ended up being a trio plus one!   First off I made the tag, then came the cake slice shaped box followed by the gift bag and lastly the wine bottle tag.

I started off with scraps of paper from the Collection which are Pion Greetings from the North Pole 6 x 6 Midwinter Night for the tag, plus a verse from the Pion Greetings from the North Pole 'Images from the Past' sheet.

I used some of my favourite dies again from Noor Design Uk shop.  The JOY Lattice Border die is peeping through at the left side and the  Studio Light Flowers leaf edge die is positioned at the right.

In addition we see the gorgeous Pleated Ruffle Tulle Trim which can be found in the shop.   There is a fabulous selection of other laces and trims to be found in the appropriate section of  Noor Designs UK  shop including the fabulous Vintage Seam Binding which I have used for the bows.  Tiny bells have been added to the bows from the Crafteezee Collection.   Ivory roses and Meadow Spray finish the design.


Here is where I delved into my stash and came up with some white card which I had already embossed, some scraps of lace and flat back pearls.

I used Dutch Dobadoo Templates:
Dutch Doobadoo Box Art A4 Bag
Dutch Doobadoo A4 Pie Set
Dutch Doobadoo Envelope Bottle Label Stencil

Dies used:
JOY Lattice Border die  (Cake slice shaped box)
Studio Light Flowers leaf edge die  (Gift bag)
JOY Flower Edge Die

The lovely pearl Embellishment shown below was also from the Collection.  Now this I thought must be a centrepiece.  So I took the large blue flower from the kit, and carefully took it apart.  After adding a little Cheesecloth (which can be seen on more than one item here) the lovely pearl embellishment was added.  There are a lovely selection of these embellishments here

Several flowers are from the Crafteezee Collection as was the lovely lace which can be seen on the bag.  I think you can just to say see the Petite Rufffled Trim on the edge of the cake slice box.

The beautiful satin ribbon (used for the handles on the bag) was from the Crafteezee Collection also,  as were the flowers.


And finally, well when I saw this beautiful  Ribbon Slider in the box I knew it had to be used in a striking way.  So I added a pearl embellishment from the selection found here, and based the design around that.  The lovely turquoise ribbon was actually a piece taken from the ribbon which was wrapped around the Crafteezee Collection.  The Bottle tag was actually made and then attached to a tag card which I made myself.

Candy Cane charms, lovely lace   and Silver Jingle Bells  were added from the Collection together with white rosesPomegranite apples and Large Poppy style flowers

I have absolutely loved using this fabulous Collection!

Thanks for stopping by and happy Crafting
