Have A Magical Day

Today is about looking at your dies in new ways! I've used two dies, normally used for for other purposes, to created something completely new. Lets take a look at what the pretty Scallop Pinpoint Hearts and Flowing curves dies have become, shall we.

Ta-Da... a shamrock! The hearts were die cut from green and gold plaid paper (Anemone Plaid by Memory Box) then adhered on a slimline marshmallow card base to form the shamrock. A fancy shamrock needs a fancy stem. Enter the Flowing Curves die!

The curves of the scallops on the hearts left a little opening where the three came together.  I popped a Fairy Drop on to conceal it. A few more were sprinkled about the card for good measure! I found the perfect sentiment in the Whittle Wild Animals Sentiments set.

The playfulness of the curvy stem called for more added whimsy. A trio of sweet little Nordic Butterflies fit the bill nicely! They were created using deep green cardstock for the bottom layer and vellum for the top. The vellum was glued just in the center so the wings could be lifted.

I hope my playful card has inspired you to look at your dies differently and to create something fun. Thanks so much for stopping by today. We love it when you do!

With Love

Love is in the air as we begin the countdown to Valentine's Day! There's no better way to celebrate than with hearts and flowers. Well, maybe some chocolate too!

The Nordic Crown Flower and delicate Scallop Pinpoint Hearts were my jumping off point today. I used deep rich red, petal pink and plaid with shades of wine, pink and gold to create my blooms. I chose a lovely gold for my stem and leaves to compliment the gold lines from plaid paper.

The flowers were cut three times, once from each paper so I could mix and match them to create the regal blooms. I adore the tiny dots on all of the leaves! A simple foiled sentiment was tucked into the arrangement.

A lovely vintage jade cardstock foiled with the Criss Cross Heart Plate was the perfect complimenting color for this design. I do love the look of this color combination and I hope you do too!

Are you enjoying all of the wonderful Nordic products in the shop as much as I am? Picking out the colors for the layers is half the fun!

I used papers from the Stormy Blue and Sunny Orange cardstock pads by Memory Box with a splash of sparkle from the Majestic Hues Glitter Pad. A few Pastel Jewels were added for good measure.

The Nordic Fancy Blooms are extra sweet. I die cut the two sets along with their shadow layer cut from vellum. There are three lovely little birds in the Nordic Bird Bunch set. I picked one variety for today's card.

I wanted just a touch of color for my background, so I added orange cardstock to the back of the Cortina Pinpoint Plate.

I think it adds just the right amount of interest without distracting from the focal images.

I went back and forth on my sentiment color. I finally settled on a foiled one all dolled up in Rose Gold. I love the way it looks with these shades of peach and orange!

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope I brought some crafty inspiration to your day!

Winter Greetings

Hello and Happy New Year! I'm here today with a pair of winter cards just perfect for sending warm winter wishes to family or friends. They feature the wonderful Nordic Bears. I die cut a pair of bears and dressed them up in colors to coordinate with paper I picked from the Memory Box Poinsettia Garland paper pad.

23  1002  010 copy

The first little lady was tucked into a Scalloped Stitched Frame that was backed with the Scandinavian Snowflake background. This panel was popped onto a card base covered with more pretty paper from the same 6x6 pad. I like that she seems to be nodding to the sentiment banner!

23  1002  005 copy

Okay, lets take a look at where her twin sister ended up, shall we! More of that pretty paper was cut with the large Scalloped Stitched Frame. Not wanting one bit of that fabulous paper to be left out, I used all of the pieces from the die cuts.

23  1002  007 copy

For this one, I placed her into a glittery snow globe! I grounded the globe with one of the lovely Nordic Borders and added a banner sentiment to wish the recipient a Happy New Year.

23  1002  008 copy

The background in the globe was made using The Scandinavian Snowflake Plate and glitter paper. The shadow portion of the polar bear was cut with vellum. I think it adds just a touch of softness to the card. This twin is dressed up for her New Year's celebration. She's in a fancy snow globe so she needed a little glitz!

Aren't they a sweet pair? Both of the pretty little sentiments are included in the Christmas Banners clear stamps and die set. Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today. We love it when you do!

Merry Christmas

Hello and Merry Christmas! I'm sharing a pair of cards today featuring the charming Nordic Deer. Long post, lots of pictures!

23  0922  023 copy

I die cut them, dressed them up in their cozy winter outfits, then got to work on their cards. Here we go with number one...

23  0922  032 copy

Snowflakes were a must for this winter card along with a littler sparkle!

23  0922  025 copy

I cut the Scandinavian Snowflake Plate and a couple of large flakes from the Snowflake Loop along with the Lavish Merry Christmas sentiment. They went onto a cranberry card base.

23  0922  033 copy

The seniment comes with a shadow die. I choose the same green from the deer's outfit and a beautiful champagne glitter paper.

23  0922  034 copy

This close up of the deer shows that I used two different shades of kraft. His legs in the back are a little darker as are his antlers. I like that this die lets you position the legs in a couple of different ways.

23  0922  038 copy

My second card features the Nordic Whimsy Trees with the deer. 

23  0922  026 copy

I added a couple of layers of snowbanks using the Whittle Field and Trees die set. 

23  0922  039 copy

The Nordic Trees have sweet details on them that look wonderful on their own or bejeweled!

Two deer, two cards. I hope either one says Merry Christmas to you!

Peace Love and Belly Rubs!

Is this sentiment not the best! Once it's in my head, it stays there a good while! Pair it with the happy little Holiday Corgi and you have yourself a fun and festive card!

23  1006  001 copy

The Large Envelope was the perfect size for him. He looks quite content tucked in there just waiting to spread some holiday cheer. His reindeer antlers bring even more fun to the mix!

 23  1006  002 copy

A few wispy Wide Pine branches and glittery snowflakes add to the merriment of this card. The tiny gold hearts adorning the envelope came from the sentiment. I don't know anyone with a Corgi, but I think this will bring a smile to the recipient's face nontheless. I hope it brought one to yours!
