If you really would like your gift or just your greeting to stand out....then this is your choise in a card:-)
I sprayed the tag with a light bronze shimmer mist. Covered it with ivory lace fabric. Made a dragonfly with gold texture paste. Painted an old key first with gesso and then with the same gold paint as the dragonfly. Added some lace trim, flowers, pearl string and a banner..... Viola:-) it comes with a custom made envelope....
I have been playing tonight with some beautiful Maja paper along with a Stampin Up set do Chalk Talk.
Be sure to send me a mail if you are interested in purchasing any of the cards:-)
The first two cards are with Maja patterned paper. You can buy these cards DKK 20,00 each.
These cards are with regular cardstock also here using SU's Chalk Talk both stamp and die...so much fun to make. These cards sell for DKK 15,00 each...

Saw this idea in YouTube by Dawn5377 and thought ...."this I'll try!"... And I just LOVE the result.
As pattern paper I've used Maja Design for the purple card and an old Stampin'Up designer series paper. All stamps are Stampin Up except for the center in the yellow card which is a Sizzix stamp and die.

Going to a funeral today, I wanted to make a card that shows the symbolism of a loving father and husband leaving for a beautiful, serene and loving place with the knowledge of meeting family and friends that has departed recently and many years ago.
And for the family left behind with the hope and knowledge of being together again some day..
I think the beautiful paper made by Astrid McLean - Astrid's Artistic Efforts is stunning for my purpose combined with The Umbrella Man from Tim Holtz....
I'm so happy with this simple yet beautiful result.
Until we meet again Per...

Over the past number of months I've tried to make my own color and glimmer mists using acrylic paint or hobby paint.
To my disappointment I've had to throw out quite a few mist bottles because the nosell clogged up.
I've been using alcohol to dilute as well as water. I know a lot of people swear by using alcohol, but to my humble experience having used both alcohol based mists and water miste on projects at the same time the results haven't been as good as if I only used alcohol or water solely.
Wanting to experiment on how to avoid clogging up the nosell I've found a solution that works great... by accident I filled my mist bottle with hot water, then added the paint, a glass bead went in there too closed it and gave it a good shake. The hot water dilutes the paint so much easier than when using cold and the bead is just an extra help.
After the good shake I added Perfect Pearl and shaked it once more.....
I now have the most amazing color- and glimmer mists at the fraction of the price of the original ones.
I have been using 2 oz bottles.
For my Danish readers of my blog I buy my bottles: i Tiger hvor de sælger pakker med 3 stk. for 10kr. De er absolut fortrindelige.
