Good Luck! | By Sabrina

Welcome to everyone,
I'm Sabrina and today I show you how I made my card Good Luck!

Making it is simple ... I cut out a patterned paper and a watercolor paper.

On the acqurellabile card I stamped the beautiful Gummiapan Stamp - Flourish Frame, with the embossing pad, I put the white embossing powder and I used the metalized watercolors to paint Gummiapan Stamp - Flourish Frame.

With the same colors I created the spots. I stamped one side of the card with Gummiapan Stamp - Text Love is Patient,  I have distressed the edges and inserted the wonderful die Gummiapan Die - Good Luck... the effect you see in the picture is thanks to the embossing pad and the embosser powder ... in the video you find the procedure!!!

then I glued my watercolor paper on the patterned paper and inserted a twine!
I post the video where you can find step by step the whole process !!!

Bunny Tilda Card | By Donna


Hello, everyone!
Donna here on Swedish House Crafts blog today with a pink card featuring a couple of Magnolia mini stamps. 

Links to the products are in text, and can be found at the end of my post. Lookout too for a special offer code from me below.


I used Roxstamps Curlicue decor edge die to cut the design paper, and fixed it behind the card front at the top. I embellished it with 3mm sticky white pearl flatbacks from my stash! I also used lots of other dies that are available to buy at Swedish House Crafts. The pretty lace is from my stash.



The mini stamps come unmounted. You will need to mount them onto a sheet of EZ Mount prior to stamping them onto your choice of card. The pink design papers that I used are from the new Maja collection called Celebration.
The mini stamps were so easy to colour, what with being small, but I really enjoyed colouring them with my Polychromos pencils. I used Gummiapan nesting stitched squares for the base of my card, and to layer the papers, and white card.

I stamped Bunny Tilda, coloured her, and cut around her. I used 3D foam tape on the back of Tilda, and adhered her to the bottom of the background.

I stamped a floral background onto Bristol board cardstock and cut out using Gummiapan nesting stitched square. The flowers are from my stash. The banners, and birdie are Gummiapan dies.


Behind my flower arrangement, you can see the Gummiapan hens net die. I cut it using Maja Celebration papers.

The toadstools, and cute hedgehog are dies that were included in Magnolia Doohickey club vol 16.
sadly, due to the kits being limited edition, vol 16 is no longer available, but you are able to pre order vols 19, and 20 in store. You will also be entitled to 5% off your pre order by using code; 
DONNASAID5OFF at the checkout.


Inside the card is decorated to complement the front.

Precious Mini Magnolia tags | By Anna Sigga

Hi all, it's Anna Sigga here and I have a set of tags to share with you today.

The Magnolia minis are oh so adorable and ever so tiny - I knew these lil stamps would be somewhat difficult to colour so I thought why not challenge myself!




I wanted to use these lil pretties as a focal point and since they are so tiny I thought that making a tag would be a great way to showcase them.


Thanks for stopping by today and if you are looking for more inspiration from me you can check out my YouTube channel and of course my blog: Scrappalicious.

Love Is In The Air with Maja and Magnolia | By Liz

Hi guys, I've made another card using the gorgeous papers by Maja Design from the Sofiero collection. These papers are one of my absolute favourites, they are also available on sale as single sheets too. I love the muted images and soft colours and patterns.

As you can see I also used two of the tags from the Ephemera sheet, these are so gorgeous and simple to use. I simply cut round them, edged them with a little distress ink then added an eyelet on the top
and threaded some twine through.


I layered these on the top of the doodled circle die by Gummiapan. These dies cut fabulously and have some awesome designs and are a really good price, do check them out.

I wanted a little interest at the bottom of the tags, so I cut an envelope out of some vellum and stamped a rose head from a reprint stamp Suha has in store and is on sale too. I stamped it out with a versamark pad then used embossing powder over it, which I heat set with my heat tool. Then on the other side I used the adorably cute typewriter die by Magnolia. It comes with the lovely love insert too, this slips into the die, (how cute!!!)


I finished my card off with some of the rose buds to follow the theme, Suha has some gorgeous flowers in stock, check those out too!! but don't buy them all I need some, Lol

Final Gummiapan Snowman of the Season | By Nancy

Hello, friends! It's Nancy here today with my final snowman share for the season. *sniff*sniff* I love Winter and always hate to see it go! Yet I also love Spring, and it's arrival is always wonderful to see! So I'm happy to be moving on to Spring projects :o)


I wanted to keep my card colours soft and frosty. I found that these papers from the Walking in the Forest Collection worked beautifully. I just added some matching  pale blue card stock from my stash.


This sweet Tilda with Little Snowy is so adorable. I coloured her up to match the papers. I also added a bit of Stickles here and there. She's all sold out in the shop right now but Suha would be more than happy to order her in for you. Just use the pre-order link listed below.


These Gummiapan Snowflake dies are a must have die! They're such a beautiful size and they cut like a dream for such an intricate die. I simply added a little rhinestone to the centre.


The Gummiapan Snowman die was the perfect final addition. I added a little strip of white paper to the back, and then filled the holes with Stickles. He makes such a lovely frosty friend!


This was such a fun card to make! I hope you had fun looking at it! See you again soon!

Mixed Media Tag Set using Crafter's Companion Embossing Folders  | By Katie


Hello all,

I have a set of mixed media tags to share today using Embossing Folders from Crafter's Companion and Gummiapan.


Tag 1 :Start off by spraying a blank tag with shimmer spray and allow to dry. Stamp around the tag with the alphabet background stamp and then apply a stencil mask to the tag.  Paint on another ink colour with a paint brush and then cut out a small rectangle from acetate. Emboss it with the Basket Weave Folder and paint over with gesso before applying a coat of gold paint over the top.



Ink a small tag and then emboss it with the Leaf Vein Embossing Folder. adhere the acetate and tag to the edge of the larger tag and then add thread to the tag. Add the hearts to the little tag with a few enamel dots on. Finish by adding some stamped butterflies and words.


Tag 2: Spray a blank tag with brown ink and then emboss it with the Wood Grain Embossing Folder and rub over with gold paint. Add jute ribbon to the background and then cut out a integrated rectangle from green card and stick that down.  



Cut out two small tags, one from card and one from acetate and apply ink and paint to them. Wrap the larger tag in torn matching paper and then add lace to the bottom before sticking it down. Wrap thread around the smaller tag and then glue it to the edge of the other tag. Add a sentiment to the tag and decorate with small butterflies and embellishments. 


Tag 3: Emboss a large blank tag with the Pebbles Embossing Folder and add a stencil to the background. Paint the tag with blue ink and use metallic paint to highlight the embossing. Add white thread to the base.


Cut out a smaller tag and emboss it using the Leaf Vein Embossing Folder. Decorate with a few different trims and then cut out the Doodle Heart out of card and paint with blue metallic paint. 
Finish with a sentiment and enamel dots.

Maja and Magnolia Mini Album | By Tamara
Hi!
Tamara here with you. Today I have a mini album for you. When I say mini I mean MINI. There's only enough space for two photos or maybe four if you put some on the back too. hehe ...

For this project I coloured one of the new Magnolia's images called My Own Key Tilda (You're Invited collection, 2018). Image was coloured using Distress ink pads.


I embellished the front of the album using lots of pretty flowers.


Leaf die cuts used are from Magnolia Day workshop kits. I cut them out from Maja Design Monochromes paper - Celebration (Vintage teal). As you can see one side is dark teal and one is light teal.


Design papers used for this project are from Maja Design - Celebration. I added a picture from the side so that you can see how the album is folded together.


The inside ...


Dies used on this project are mostly from Magnolia (House tag, ...) Key and Key hole, ladder, hearts ... these dies are from Magnolia's Doohickey kits. There are still a few kits available to pre-order HERE.


I used a few different Gummiapan stamps on my project. I stamped Stockholm Post Stamp and Angelpost to the front (around the image) and in the empty space inside (I meant to add a sentiment).


Another Gummiapan stamp used is the Camera stamp. I stamped it on the Pearl Monochrome paper to show the recipient that this is an album and he/she can put photographs inside these empty slots.


That's all from me today!
Hugs, t.
