Allsorts - I spy

This week at Allsorts the theme is I spy with my little eye, something beginning with B. So use your imagination, the options are almost endless :)
I made a blue card with a pretty butterfly die and a gorgeous bear. Clean and simple. Looking forward to look at your creations! And of course we have prizes beginning with the letter B :)

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

Allsorts - sketch

This week at Allsorts Kath wants us to use a sketch as inspiration for our creations. So I came up with this shabby chic card.
I'm thinking I can use it as a base and add either a name or a number in the center when I know what to use it for. It's good to have a couple of neutral cards that you can swiftly personalize when you need them.
This is the sketch to use

Allsorts - bring the bling

It's time for a new challenge at Allsorts with the theme Bring the Bling. I made a daisy by fastening double sided tape on cardstock before I cut out the flower. Then I removed the backing of the tape and poured glitter on. I also dabbed some glue on the edges and poured some glitter there too but of course bling doesn't show up well in my photos :(.

We have Marianne Design as out sponsor this week so hop on over to join.

Allsorts - Food

Time for a new challenge at Allsorts, the theme being Food.
I am of course stretching it a bit with chocolate, cause it's not food in that sense but it sure is edible - and hugely tasty :). A jar of M&M´s with a text picked up here. Altered the lid with some fabric and ribbon.

Allsorts - Cakes, cupcakes and sweet treats

Hi all,
time for a new challenge at Allsorts, this time Tracy mouse wants your projects to feature cakes, cupcakes or sweet treats.
I made a gift box for a chocolate bar - locally made and just divine. The music die is a new favourite, very delicate and crisp cut and of course the daisies that come back again and again :).

Allsorts - girls and ladies

Time for a new challenge at Allsorts and the theme is Girls and Ladies.
I used an image from Rick St Dennis with only a die cut daisy and some swirls as decoration cause I wanted the image to be really focused. These hat ladies are just amazing and I love them all!

Allsorts - Metal or Charms

Hello,
my turn to host the challenge over at Allsorts and I want you to use charms or actual metal on your creations.
I made a tag, using an embossing folder on aluminium tape, blackening it with black acrylic paint. Then some cog wheel dies, smudged with gold wax and some metal wire that I tied around the tag. Taking pictures of shiny things really is a drag...

We are sponsored this week by Tattered Lace, they are giving not one but two lucky winners a die each so dig out your metal bits and get crafting.

Allsorts - anything goes

Hi,
this week the challenge at Allsorts is Anything goes. Nice to have those "let's do whatever"-kinda weeks :)
I made a card with a new text die, once again a die with a stitched edge (I know, I have a tendency to almost wear new things out when I get them) and a gorgeous baby hands stamp I got for my birthday.

Allsorts - Hearts and/or Flowers

Hi,
this week the challenge at Allsorts is Hearts and/or Flowers. Shouldn't be too much of a struggle I suppose :)
At least it wasn't for me, I made some gift boxes in blue and gold, a favourite layout that works for all sorts of occasions.

Allsorts - daisies, daisies

Time for a new challenge at Allsorts, this week the theme is daisies, daisies. I recently got hold of Sizzix bigz die Daisies, not entirely easy cause I found it on Amazon and that company didn't ship to Sweden. Luckily we had some friends that live outside London and they visited us for New Year's so they bought it and brought it with them.

I made a card for a christening and I'm so happy I finally got hold of the die cause the flowers turned out just the way I wanted them.

Time for a new challenge at Allsorts, this week the theme is Wings on things, so add something fluttering :).
I made a gable box and used a butterfly die I purchased on E bay before Christmas. The cuts are really delicate and the finish really pleasing.
