Hexagon bonanza with Lawn Fawn Backdrop


This is what you make with all the leftover bits and pieces from a previous project - You make a bunch of hexagon cards :)


I just love....read LURVE....this backdrop die from Lawn Fawn which makes the stitched woodgrain pattern. 


The sentiments on these card are Danish and here above it means Congrats / Congratulations. 


To add a little interest I have used Nuvo Crystal Drops to make enamel dots with. 

I have though learned one thing - let the Nuvo drops dry for at least 48 hours before putting them in acetate bags. And most importantly - don't let then be stacked up without acetate cover or the drops will stick to the back of the other card. 


If you are wondering about all the colours, I can reveal there are leftovers from a rainbow project.

I took a class with Online Card Classes called "Rainbow Maker". You can see my two original projects HERE and HERE


This sentiment means Hugs in English. Everyone needs a hug once in a while, right!


There we go.... a bunch of cards with leftovers from another project. So good to use up the pieces instead of just throwing them in the bin. 

Have a splendid day :)
Pia

9 Months Till Christmas with Newton's Nook

Oh boy, it's already the 24th again and there is now 9 months till Christmas. Winter is almost over and spring is fighting its way back. Love this time of year :)

As usual we are sharing some Christmas Card inspiration over at Operation Skriv Hjem (Danish Operation Write Home). 

This time I've gone for a more modern Christmas card...


I have first heat embossed the ornaments and the sentiment with gold embossing powder. 

Then I used my Blending Tool to add three fresh colours of Distress Ink to each ornament. To add a little more detail in colour I used my Inktense pencils to colour in a few of the areas of the ornaments. 


I made three different variations of this Christmas card. I made the card base colour match each of the ornaments by adding Distress Ink to the base with the Ink Blending Tool. I only did it to the edges, as the card front hides the mid part. 


Here you see one of the other cards with pink background. For this I have used a Danish sentiment. 

That is all for today - Wishing you all a fantastic day, 
Pia

Pastel Easter Eggs Decor

Easter is upon us very soon and hopefully so is spring. Spring is said to begin March 1st in Denmark but we sure haven't seen much of it yet. Hopefully the frost and snow will leave soon. 

One Friday at work I got the urge to make some Easter decor eggs. In one of my breaks I went into our sample room, where we keep sample sheets of gift wrapping paper and sample ribbon ready to send out to customers. Oh my, it's a tiny bit of paper heaven. 

Be warned - lot's of pictures in this post. 


I recently purchased a littel bunny die and some egg shaped frame dies. It was time to get them to work. 



By using double sided tape I can transform the gift wrapping paper into cardstock. This give you endless possibilies and a reason to hang onto gorgeous gift wrapping paper. 



I ended up using the 3 below shown gift wrapping papers to make my Easter eggs. The gift wrapping paper is from Scanlux-packaging.com.




Each Easter egg is made up of two die-cuts. These are glued together back-to-back. 


The big Easter eggs were added a ribbon bow to each side. 



To some of the eggs I added the cute bunny in glitter cardstock. For two of them I used the inlaid die-cutting texhnique and for I added the leftover bunny die-cut as a layer. 



Here are the results hanging beautifully.....








In total I made 3 sets of 3 of each gift wrapping paper. For some reason I like matching sets when it comes to Easter or Christmas decor. 










I wish you all a Happy Easter and lots of sunshine :)

Hugs,
Pia
