Sewing Card Set with Beth

Happy Monday morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here today with this sewing themed card set.
The files that I use are: Quilt card bi-fold basket, Quilt card bi-fold var star, Quilt card bi-fold peony, and Quilt card bi-fold tea leaf.  The envelope svg is included with the files.
The papers I used for the cards are from DCWV's Hello Darlin' stack.
For embellishments, I used green sequins and white Nuvo Crystal Drops.
The envelopes were cut out of paper from DCWV's DIY Project Stack: Envelopes.  The thimble on the back is a great finishing touch!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Flowers for the Birthday Girl

I always try to remember to bring a little something for the hostess when going to a Birthday party. It could be flowers or chocolates or this:
 
This is the Box Hex Med with Lid from SnapDragon Snippets (also available in the Silhouette Design Store) that I downsized by 50%.
I made this for my niece who invited us over for her Birthday last Sunday and it was instead of a flower.
It is made from AC Cardstock in Black and Peacock and decorated with Graphic 45s "Floral Shoppe" patterned paper. I used a little resin rose in black as the handle on top of the lid.
In this box I put some Ricola Original Swiss Herb Bon Bons because it matched so well with the floral paper ;-)
 
I do hope she likes these candies (I do!)
I also made her a card to match:
 
This adorable Bloom Flowers 5x7 Card is also from SnapDragon Snippets but can also be found in the Silhouette Design Store.
It's made from AC Cardstock in Banana, Vanilla, Oregano, Peacock, Rosebud, Cranberry, Mustard, Leaf, White and Kraft Wood patterned cardstock also from AC.
All edges are inked with Ingvild Bolme Chalk Ink Pads and the two small wooden dots are from My Minds Eye.
The sentiment say "Congratulations" in Danish and is written with the sketch pen option in the Silhouette Software.
 
She got a Birthday gift as well :-) I love my niece - nothing is too good for her :-)
Thanks for joining me today and please feel free to leave me a small comment on your way out <3
More Spring projects to come soon - so stay tuned ;-)

Castle Tower turned into...

Hello all. I-team member Sonja here with my newest inspiration. While thinking about my next project, a certain vision popped into my mind. I got on SnapDragon Snippets website to see if I could find what I wanted to do. After not finding it, I remembered that I have had the Castle Tower 3D Box file in my library for a year and haven't used it.
Original file 

With a few modifications to the top of it, I was able to make my vision happen. It took me about 2 full days to design and execute it all. Mainly because I kept changing my mind about the roof.

Tower portion: 


Rot Iron Fence: 
Just a few skinny rectangles, circles, and a pentagon for the fence topper was all it took to make the fence. I welded six fences to a hexagon with a smaller hexagon in the middle to accommodate the top tower room to allow a light in it.
Original Top Piece

Modified piece
Roof:
Keeping with the hexagon theme of the tower, I decided to do a hexagon shaped roof. I couldn't find any in my library so I set out to weld a six triangles together and play around with it until I got what I envisioned. 
 Final roof shape after welding and shaping
For the tower portion itself, I wanted to float in some slight color. The best way for this was with a gray sharpie and the Craftwell eBrush. I used Bazzill cardstock for this project because it's a really sturdy product and I didn't have to double up on walls or anything to hold its shape. 

After floating in a bit of color detail, I ran the tower walls, base, and steps I created through my Sizzix Big Shot with a Darice brick embossing folder

 Next, for the tower top I wanted to have the clear plastic just for extra detail. The best way I have found to adhere the plastic to paper is by using my Xyron Creative Station Lite® . 

For the steps, I simply took some rectangle boxes I had in my library, downsized them to what I needed, ran them through my Big Shot for the embossing, and dry brushed some ink on them to make the steps look aged.

Final Product: 
 Turn the light on...

These little lanterns are from the SVG Winter Wishes set. The lantern is much much larger than these little tykes. They are about the size of the tip of a pencil on this lighthouse.


I intentionally did not adhere the top to the tower so I had easy access to the tea light.

Springtime in the Netherlands

.....I can only imagine it. All those tulips! And windmills....and water channels. I was lucky to visit close to Amsterdam this winter but I would really love to go now to see all of the gorgeous signs of Spring.
Well....I can't go because I can't afford it but I can bring a little bit of the Netherlands into my living room with this next project I made from SnapDragon Snippets. The files are also available in the Silhouette Design Store.
(just used the tulips and leaves)
 

This cutie is made from AC Cardstock in Caramel, Cotton Candy, Banana, Rosebud, Apricot, Vanilla, Cranberry, Mulberry, Boysenberry, Lemon, Olive, Spinach and Mustard. It is decorated with wood patterned cardstock in Kraft also from AC and Graphic 45s Floral Shoppe.
The shoe I kept in the original size but the tulips are downsized by 50%.

I used wooden skewers as stems and attached the flower heads and the leaves with floral tape. Then I added some flower foam and Spanish Moss into the shoe and stuck in the tulips and the leaves.
It is so easy to make - a bit time consuming with all the tulips, but it's really not that bad.
All edges are inked with Ingvild Bolme Chalk Ink Pads from Prima.
I am so pleased with how this turned out.

I hope you like it too - tell me in a comment please and thanks for joining me today.

Hello! with Lisa



Happy Friday! Lisa from The Relativity of Paper sharing a bright Hello with you today.  

I used the Nautical Box from the CG Under The Sea Collection and an A2 Size Card can be found in the Silhouette Design Store by Snapdragon Snippets


To create the top of the box I used the decorative layer that comes in the file and added the text hello. The eclipse text is popular right now and very simple to create.
All the paper is from DCWV Hello Darlin' Stack.

As always, thanks for joining me today.
