My Heart - Mixed Media Scrapbooking | by Anna Sigga
Hi there and a happy Friday to all.

Today I have a Mixed-media-light scrapbook page to share using Where the Roses Grow by Pion Design.

It is no secret that I am in love with the stunning papers from Pion Design and for some reason these beautiful papers make the creative process a dream.

I really wanted the large flower from one of the patterned papers to be a bit dimensional so I decide to fussy cut the image and place it on 3D foam on another piece of paper. The large heart needed to have a bit of a background so I used white gesso, glimmer mist and stamping to "ground" the heart.

I stamped and die-cut several feathers using several Gummipan supplies and a Magnolia leaf die to frame the photo in the center.

Then I added several flowers and gems to add even more dimension and sparkle to the layout.

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.

Lovely Gift Bags and Garden Lanterns | by Olga
Hello paper crafters,

I had a lot of fun playing with the Gift Box die by Gummiapan and exploring its opportunities. First of all I'd like to say that it's super quick and easy to assemble box: just one run through the machine (if you cut through 2 layers) and a tiny bit of glue to connect the 2 pieces. The closure is absolutely adhesive free!

Here are some treat bags that I have created with this die. The topper is a layered flower attached to a mini clothes pin:

But there are more things that this die can do. If you cut it out of plain white paper and die cut tiny windows on its sides and place a battery driven candle inside you will get some super pretty tea lights. And if you hang them on a string you'll get a set of lovely garden lanterns!

Watch the beginning to end video tutorial for the detailed explanation:

Craft Smorgasbord - Pion "Theodore & Bella" Using Gummiapan Dies and  Roxstamp | By Donna
Hello, everyone!
I'm here on the Swedish House Crafts blog today as Guest Designer.
I have made a card featuring Pion "Theodore & Bella" papers using Gummiapan dies and Roxstamp.
Links to the products used are in text, and can be found at the end of my post.

For the shape of my card I used GoKreate large frame frilly #5.
I cut out the design papers and matted them onto the base.

I used the 2nd largest Roxstamps pierced round nesting die to cut out the image, and stamped around the outside with Gummiapan Angelpost rubber stamp.
I die cut the largest pierced round nesting die with the design papers and matted the image onto it with 2mm foam tape.

I die cut Gummiapan leaves and twig - pointy leaves with cream card and placed them in between the flower arrangement. The white curled paper flowers are from the store.

The Happy Birthday sentiment and balloons are also from the "Thoedore & Bella" collection.
I stamped around the sentiment with the Gummiapan Angelpost stamp, and matted it onto a larger cut out piece of design paper.
I cut around two sets of balloons, and matted one on top of the other with 2mm foam pads.

Inside the card is decorated with "Theodore & Bella" papers, and a smaller GoKreate die cut.

That's all from me today!
I hope I have inspired you to create something using Pion "Theodore & Bella" design papers, Gummiapan dies and Roxstamps.

Unicorn Tilda with Unicorn | By Becky
Morning everyone, I'm here with you today with the card I made for my little girls birthday last week. When she saw the unicorn from the latest Magnolia release she asked for it for her birthday card, so I had to oblige her, and mask it along with Unicorn Tilda and add the Aladdin Pattern to the background too.

I have used one of the Gummiapan Stitched Square Dies too, and left it on while I distressed the edge to create a bit of border. I have coloured the image in with my distress reinkers to match the Sofiero Papers from Maja Design.

I used scraps of Sofiero to make the daffodils using both the small daffodil die and the large one too, and added grey stamens to the centre, and built my flowers up on top of an allium Gummiapan die.

From this angle you can see how I have given the image a bit of height when I have been building up the layers.

A close up so you can see hoe I have masked the two stamps together.

Thank you for stopping by,

Magnolia Summer card  | By Tamara

Hi! Today I'm sharing with you a Magnolia Summer card. I masked together two Magnolia stamps (Lounging Tilda and Lounging background). I drew a bit of the waves myself, just to complete the whole scene.

Papers used are from Maja Design - Summertime collection.

Image was cut out using Stitched Rectangles by Gummiapan Dies. I made those two flags with Stitched banners - thinner, also from Gummiapan Dies. I added some Stickes to the boat and some glossy accent to the sun to make it pop out more. Chipboards are from Scrapiniec, Poland.

Ombre effect tutorial with digital papers |  By Lynn
Hi Lynn here with another digital paper tutorial. You can find links in the shop to all the products I used at the end of the post.

I've used three different digital papers from Swedish House Crafts and merged them together in word to create an ombre effect.

Here's a short video showing you how I did it.

Once I had the backing paper I cut out a square to form the base of my card and mounted onto a square of paper cut with the largest Gummiapan old paper die.

I then used the Gummiapan film strip stamp - stamped and embossed with clear powder and it cut out adding the Gummiapan Happy Birthday stamp which I cut out the centre of the stamp to stick into my film strip.

I then took some of the white paper thread and wrapped it around the card at the top twice and once at the bottom.

I used the Gummiapan heart dies and cut hearts from matching cardstock and then mounted them onto the film strip. Finally I used a clear wink of stella pen and highlighted the hearts with it.

Blue Flowers with Dragonflies - Reprint, Roxstamps and Gummiapan | By Hellen

Hello here is my Swedish House Crafts post for this week - a CAS design.

This 6x6 card is made with white linen card for the base and frame using Roxstamps nesting squares die set.

I cut a piece of card to fit the frame, blending it with a blue dye ink and stamping on top using Reprint Coffee Text and the same colour ink. This was stuck down under the frame which was raised on foam pads.

I then ink blended some scrap card and cut out a dragonfly and two flowers using Gummiapan dies as listed below. Note that on one of the flowers I kept the petals intact with a piece of double sided tape on the back.
The die cuts were mounted on to the frame and some glitter added to the dragonfly and some bling to the flowers. 

A simple design - but sometimes in life that's just what you need.

Hope you all have a lovely day - the links below will take you straight to the items I've used or to have a peek around the whole shop use the link at the top of the blog.

Thank you for looking x

Craft Smorgasbord - I'm Not Weird Mixed Media Tag | By Katie

Hello crafty friends

I have a mixed media tag to share using the stamps and dies by Gummiapan.

Paint a white tag with Turquoise Metallic Lustre and then Green. Blend them together and then apply modelling paste using a mini stencil. Stamp over base with the Worn Honeycomb stamp and then with the Collage Numbers stamp.

Use the Integrated Stars Die and then paint the stars with metallic lustre.  Glue them down the tag, putting the largest to smallest. Die-cut the doodle circle out of card and glue to centre of tag.

Stamp out a sentiment onto card and cut out the words and place them onto the tag.
