My ever first CAS card - Keep it Simple

 
Keep it simple over at 


This is my try! 
Having had thoughts about how to solve this, for me new thing, -
I on my way to town, "stumpled " over this beautiful leaf ,and brought
it home with me. 




I used one of That`s Crafty surfaces, added lots
of gesso , also to give texture, and adhered the already
dry leaf. Then using love hearts from the
                                        Words stencil: Love , ---   words from Lynne`s Affirmations sets ,                                                                       and From Inspirational Quotes , Stamp set 2 .

                                          The hearts were stenciled with Archival Ink Leaf Green.

My try is a little naughty puppy , whom ran wild into the flower bed ,
spoiling the beautiful spring flowers :-)

I used the beautiful stencils from That´s Crafty ´s own product line ,
both paws - flowers,  and words !!



He is very shameful hiding


Telling the world, it is not him!!

colors are Infusions, and if you click the photo you see the crackle'
on the flowers . The dog is die-cut and then adhered into the frame .

THE KEY TO MY HEART !


Last week, I received this wonderful MDF    That`s Crafty    surface from my dear friend Lynne. 
and I had to almost at once start creating with it :-)
Thank you dear , so much !!


I`m not finished using this beautiful stamp with the Da Vinci woman,
and stamped her onto tissue, to be placed on the corrugated cardboard !!


The stamps and stencils used on the background heart ,are also That`s Crafty products ,
and they worked lovely, to add some visual texture onto the heart first covered with gesso.
Tissue paper stained with Infusions, and crumpled gives real texture and 
also a little laces, stained, as well.


'
I love the Vintage Moulds keyholes , which I used
one of ,to create my own keyhole ( Also available at That`s Crafty shop ) . 
 It is rusted ,lol- with Prima 
rust paste and a little Pent Art iron paste .


Printed out the words , and added an old beautiful real rusted key !

Soon weekend again, the time flies and soon hopefully , real summer is here !

I wish you all wonderful days, 

Hugs and love

DREAMY da Vinci Woman ,-CARD .


Recently I bought some very beautiful stamps ,
and one of them is this da Vinci Woman .


I stamped her on paper, and after painting the card with
acrylic paint, it was stenciled  with Distress ink, and Stazon, using 
Big Floral stencil from Laura  http://www.thatscrafty.co.uk/


Her wing is fussy cut after having used a part of another That`s Crafty
stencils ,called Steampunk bug .
I wanted it to be 3-d and therefore did not stencil directly onto the card.


Dream stenciled also with texture paste, is another That`s Crafty stencil.


You all know I love using fabrics an laces in my creations,
and here I dyed a piece of embroidery and lace with Infusions ,
to achieve the soft look. I used lots of water !!

I hope you are all off the a wonderful weekend ,

Hugs and love
Dorthe

SUMMERCARD , AND ANGEL HEART

                                                                             
                           
Receiving some lovely stamps , I desided to try them out, for a card to a friend,-
The background was a piece of artpaper I once bought.


I think the tree looks sweet with its green leaves, and 
the birds flying around it , to the sun.


Circles are created with the inside of a roll of tape , and the tree
stamped on top of a paper dyed with Infusions.


The heart I first embroidered with free hand stitching,
and then added the lovely lady, stamped
onto cotton, she got an embroidered necklace , too .


A little lace of different kinds ,was added -


And this is one, of the beautiful flowers, from a bouquet,
I received from my dear daughter, for Mothers Day .


I hope you all , like I, had a wonderful weekend, and wishes
you all the best for this new week, just started !!

Hugs, and love

A PAGE BELONGING TO "HEATHERS" BOOK

Some of you knows that I am a lucky pupil :-) in Heather Tracy`s 

I have shown my cover created after her instructions, and wonderful videos , and
thought you maybe would see this new page for the book.
If you visit the course ,and sign up, you will see ,that I "stole"
some of Heathers, ideas, but created in my own style, so you will find much
more bold colored, and fantastic creations from her !!



Here it is grey card stock sewed onto an old piece of  fabric and lace,
after having been colored with Infusions .
The wonderful stamp is called Buttons 4 , and my tea tag
suited the stamp beautifully.


I stenciled 1802 from a new  great stencil by Scrapcosy , which I bought from
That`s Crafty  UK  http://www.thatscrafty.co.uk/   whom , among a huge amount ,of their own and other`s products , also is selling PaperArtsy   products.                      


The embossed dandelion  ,sending little "children" into the world,
was for me also suitable, with this big family  :-)

Here ,today the sun is shining , and that is so lovely !!
I wish you all a happy and fine weekend.

Hugs and love

THE EASTER WEEK HAVE STARTED . SO FROM ME HAPPY EASTER , ALL!!


So I thought to show you a few of my decorations ,
this egg is rather big, like a swan egg, and collaged with
papers, laces , a hand rolled flower, and little bling,
just as I like it :-)


Here it is in my window sill , with a handmade heart, and a collection of old little 
marble boxes and a beautiful one in glass.


These gorgeous eggs, you have seen before I know. 
They were created by my dear friend  JULIA http://vintagewithlaces.blogspot.dk/
many years ago, and it is still a joy to bring them out in the light,
every Easter. Aren`t they beautiful- thank you over again dear Julia . I love them !!


At last for some days the sky is blue, and the sun shining, --not only bringing
us two legged people in spring mood, but also the birds.

This card I made not long ago , when I was smitten with the
spring weather .


Last one of the very first spring flowers to visit us, every year,
the crocus . They are everywhere in our new garden,
looking so lovely and happy !!



Here they promised us real cold weather ,frost, and also snow, in the Easter days, I hope
they will be wrong, and we will see a little warmth and sun, too.

Happy Easter all dear friends, I wish you a very lovely week.

Hugs and love

TINY OLD BABY BOOTS, DECORATED FOR EASTER .


Some time ago I received a sweet pair of fabric baby boots,
from my very dear friend, Terri  http://artfulaffirmations.blogspot.dk/,
whom thought they could be decorated, and maybe  for Easter .



And so I did, and enjoyed very much to create a tiny  nest for some
real eggs, and a white dove in one boot,- a flower in the other !!


I added wool and nest material, together with a bow of 
beautiful seam binding ,on each !!


So here they are, now decorating my living room, 
with a few other Easter related, pieces. 
Thank you so much my dear Terri .

Have you started decorating your home ? 
It is lovely with a little spring inside, as outside we are still 
waiting for sun and warmth !!!

Hugs and love
Dorthe

My latest BIRD book .


It seems I`m very connected to creating cards ,collages, and even books with birds,



and also this time, I couldn`t resist creating another bird theme journal. 


It is also still a love affair with old laces, -and fabrics.
The birds are all transferred to fabric.


And I added nature things, like old bark, feathers, 


Words !!


findings from the sea shore, and drift wood !!


I love the birds related stamps, I have , and used them on fabric , too.


Remnants from the ocean !!


Pearls and laces,


a piece of cord, found like that, on the shore,


and beautiful buttons !! 


She got a little bling , :-)


Love the tulle, and thin fabrics to see through .


And at last the back cover showing the wing of that amazing
appliqué bird !!



Thank you for following me, all the way to the bottom,
so many photos , but wanted to show every page, to you.

As you can see, I am in spring mood, and spend the afternoon cleaning up my new garden.
Everywhere the sprouts are saying hello, now, and I`m so exited to see what it is,
when blooming, soon .

I wish you all, a very wonderful weekend, dear friends.

Hugs and love from Dorthe
