Sending Best Wishes

Oh my goodness, will winter ever end?  I am still loving snowflakes on the day after St. Valentine's Day.  I have this great "Sending Best Wishes" that I dearly love.  It came in a Downton Abbey set.  What better way to show  it off than to add it to a card with beautiful snowflakes.  I used two of the snowflakes from the Toolshed Kit bonus chipboard.  I painted them with two coats of white gesso, allowing them to dry between application, and once the gesso had dried I sprayed them with the Kaisercraft Kaiser Mists in Denim and let them dry.  The swirl below was created with a very old stencil that I have for swirls, using Shimmerz texturez in Tidy Widy, which was featured in the Toolshed Kit: the Spiders Web Mixed Media add on. I absolutely adore the Shimmerz line and the three media in the add on kit do not disappoint!


All of these beautiful papers are in the Toolshed Kit:  Winter Adventures Fairy Garden Bonus Paper. This paper is so versatile and beautifully coordinated you cannot go wrong!  I have to admit I am saving the Earth paper for something special.  I'll be back next week with another card.  You have absolutely got to see the papers I will be working with next week!


In the meantime, happy crafting!

Hello,  Marianne here. Today I will show you a box card I made
 with leftover paper from The Picnic in the Garden kit.

The paper is soo lovely in this kit and it is soo easy to find paper to match each other.
I found this tutorial here and I hope you will try it yourself. 


This is how it looks like when it´s closed. 


Almost open


Here it is open and you can see it´s like a box when you pull it out.
You can pull it out a little more than I have done, it´s just because I have to hold the camera. 


I have put some tags inside the boxcard. 


This is all for me today. I hope you will have a wonderful time. 

Hope to see you again soon! 
Hugs from a rainy Sweden. 

Christmas Tags

Hi ISBG Fans!  Summer is gone, but fortunately the Summer Fairy Garden Kit is still available at the International Scrapbook Garden.  I still love the pinks, greens and pale blues of this kit!  So I decided to make some festive Christmas tags.  You can never start too soon, right?!?


The two left tags are my two Christmas tags, and don't you love the summery watermelon?  See how the colors can be seasonless? The papers, tiny roses, ribbon and stamp are all from the kit.  Along with that luscious watermelon and the paint for the chipboard.

First let me show you the angel tag:


And a little close up:


Next up is St. Nicholas, Father Christmas or Santa Claus.  Did you know that December 6th is St. Nicholas Day?  In many countries it is traditional to leave your shoes out and St. Nicholas fills them with candy or other treats!


I thought Santa could use a little shabby, retro, steam punk look!  All on that luscious green paper and with the lovely white ribbon bow.  What an amazing kit!


So if you were undecided on the Summer Fairy Garden:  Picnic in the Garden kit.  Go for it!  If you have a little time and a few holiday embellishments you can create lots of beautiful cards and tags with a green and pink theme that will add a feminine touch to your holiday giving!
