Allsorts - handmade flowers

This week I'm hosting the challenge at Allsorts and I chose handmade flowers. So make your own flowers and add to your project. There are so many ways to create nice blossoms, maybe check out a tutorial online and try something completely new. 

I always look for new ways to create flowers so I'm hoping for some tips visiting your blogs this week. 

I made my flowers using a sizzix daisy-die, some white stamens and a flatbacked pearl. Leaves are made by cutting apart a diecut maple leaf.

Allsorts - love is in the air

We're closing in on Valentine's Day so at Allsorts we naturally have the theme Love is in the air. I made a double gift tag (so that you can write the greeting on the tag behind the decorated one. It's very sparkly but the light during winter really doesn't do it justice.

Baby gift tag

Showing off a gift tag I made for the February challenge at Scraphuset where they want creations in red or pink. A Lili of the Valley image, coloured with distress inks, some scrap paper, roses and a ribbon that is not at all the salmon colour it looks to have on  the photo :)

Allsorts - spots or stripes

This week at Allsorts the challenge is to use spots and/or stripes. I dry embossed a piece of vellum to get the spots to show clearly and decorated with some leaves made from a maple leaf die and a foamiran flower. I have just learned how to make flowers from foamiran so they might show up on other creations :)

Two sponsors this week, Digistamp boutique and Sizzix, so two lucky winners!

Allsorts - Old favourites

This week at Allsorts it's time to take out the old and treasured favourites. I chose to dust of the wonderful swirl set from Stempelglede that is so pretty but I sort of forgot it in a drawer, you know how it is :)
I inked some paper with blue and purple distress ink and embossed the swirls in gold. Simple but effectful. I won't put the stamp set back at the bottom of the drawer for a while now :).

We are sponsored by Fantastic Ribbon this week so good luck to you all!

Allsorts - butterflies

To balance last week's theme at Allsorts that I found a bit tricky - which you guys sure didn't :) - this week is an easy one: Butterflies.
I used a laser cut butterfly and a new sentiment I got for Christmas, a sentiment just up my alley :)

We have some lovely prizes from Tattered Lace up for grabs so good luck to you all!

Allsorts - no patterned paper

This week Tracy Mouse set the theme at Allsorts to "No patterned papers". Ooooh, tricky one was my first thought, I love design papers! But I'm not the one who folds easily so I made a dry embossed background, used some lovely Penny Black birds and a huge bow as focus so no one would even react to the fact that it's just plain white cardstock as a base :)

Allsorts - something new

I hope 2018 started nicely for you all. It's a fresh new year now, gone are the Christmas decorations and it's time to look forward to spring (which is way, way ahead when you live where I do). We have a brand new challenge for you at Allsorts, and the theme is Something new. I used a new stamp from Lili of the Valley and just to be on the safe side I also have the theme new home on the card :).

I hope you all have a nice weekend, it's back to school on Monday for me after the Christmas holiday so I'm really savouring these last few days :)
