… which means it’s perfectly OK to start with Christmas cards and decorations!

I started off with these two, a 3D snowflake and a Christmas Wreath



Both are made with the Gazelle, and finished in a flash!

There’s a lot to make with this lovely machine, if you want to read more about it go to Bumblebee for the Swedish version, and BossKut for the English one.

There’s a challenge at the Bumblebee blog, go check it out! Amazing things to win!

I found this lovely sketch and challenge at the Handarbeta blog – go check it out, you have until August 8th to participate!

Here’s my take on it:


The background paper is a Bazzill Smoothie, Walnut Cream, which I have stamped with a script stamp and Saddle Brown Staz-On, then with a flower stamp and embossed with clear EP, added some Distress Inks and misted the whole thing. Some of the brads are embossed (check out below) and some of the flowers have been stamped, inked and misted. The photo mat is handmade paper of my own production, but it can also be bought from Svartvik – with its lovely structure and raw edges it goes so well with Distress Inks.


Stamped with opaque white Staz-On and embossed with holographic EP on acetate.


I put Alcohol Ink on acetate and cut with an Ellison die – Daisies.


There are two coats of Stickles on the center flower, and all the chipboard flowers are painted with Crackle Paint.

Don’t forget to check out the challenge at Handarbeta, and also check in what’s happening at CropStop this week!

There’s a new sketch challenge at CropStop – get over there to check it out! Here’s my take on it:


I found some S.E.I. Stitches patterned paper in a drawer, and decided to use it some more as it goes so well with boyish and male pages.




The lovely netted lace in the background is created with the Gazelle, stamped and inked with Distress Inks.


I like to use flowers also on boyish pages, but often jazz them up with a more male flower center – here chinese coins.



A lot of flowers here, too! These are cut with the Gazelle, stamped with Staz-On and inked with Distress Inks.  The sprockets and gears are made the same way.



These papers go well with military themes, too!
