Sleeping Beauties

……Fantasy Foals….. or just plainly Unicorns 🙂 Would have called this blog post “Horny Horses” but I bet lots of readers would choke on their morning coffee while reading this so I thought it best to find a more sober headline 😀

I spend most of a day to make these next projects from Bird’s SVGs newest and absolutely cute collection Fantasy Foals. I just LOVE unicorns! They are adorable, fun, colorful, sweet, cute – well simply amazing and I wish they were real. The world would be a better place if there were unicorns and fairies I think! 🙂

So first of I made the Unicorn Face Mask:DSC_0003

I was a bit intimidated by this but once I got it all cut out, I quickly learned that it was a very easy project. I have never had much succes with rolled flowers but just look at these! Wooohooo I did it! And the mask itself is easy peasy….

I made it out of AC Cardstock in white, black, Scarlet, Cascade and Cricket along with glittery paper in pink and gold. I sprayed the roses with Glimmer Mist “Iridescent Gold” and added some small rhinestones onto each eyelash. Finally I tied some elastic band onto it. Love it to pieces!

Here’s a picture of my kid wearing the mask:


Next I made the Unicorn Easel Card:


This card would go for both kids and grown-ups….Love the colors ❤

I used AC Cardstock in White and black along with glittery paper and some gold foiled cardstock for the horn. That I embossed with the Swiss Dots embossing folder from Cuttlebug.

Then I made the small Unicorn Gift Tag:


For this I used AC Cardstock in Cotton Candy and White along with glittery paper in gold and shimmering paper in purple. I also tied some Organza ribbon onto it. Voila….a very easy little tag.

Finally I made the Unicorn Gift Bag:


This was the most difficult piece in the collection but not more difficult than most projects and I really love how it turned out.

I used AC Cardstock in White and Black along with glittery paper and gold foiled cardstock. I used swirly embossing folder from Sizzix and braided 3 different colors of Tinsel Twine from Idea-ology for the handle. Now I only need some cute little girl to give this to or maybe one of my many Unicorn-loving girlfriends 😉

This lovely collection is so very easy to make and I know there are lots of girls (and maybe a few boys) that would love to receive gifts with these Horny Horses 😀

Thanks for stopping by and know that I love when you leave me some small comments ❤

Fathers Day…..

….it’s today here in Denmark and usually I would have made or bought a special gift for my “hubby” from his boys but this year I didn’t! I think it’s only fair, since all I got for Mothers Day was a cup of coffee on board a ferry going home from a wedding. So I made him this:


This To-Go-Coffee Box Card is part of an all new kit from SVGCuts: Pit Shop Box Cards and it features 5 new box cards just right for Fathers Day.

For the Coffee card I used AC Cardstock in Vanilla, Latté and Coffee along with patterned paper from Graphic 45’s Enchanted Forest. The logo on the front is found here (I used only the logo) The steam is made from vellum and I used some small wooden dots as embellishment.

So now he’s gotten the same thing in return – a cuppa coffee LOL…. I don’t get mad….I get even 😀

I also made the Side of Fries Box Card:


For this I used AC Cardstock in Crimson, Sunflower, White and Black and inked the edges of the fries with an orange ink pad for dimension. I also pinched the fries a bit. On the label it reads: “Congratulations” –  in case I use it for a birthday instead and I used some small dots from Simple Stories as embellishment. A very easy card to make but lots of fun.

Then I made the Pizza Box Card:


This too is very easy to assemble and I used Kraft Cardstock along with AC Cardstock in Butter, Cranberry, Oregano, Latte and Chestnut. I also used some patterned Graphic 45 paper from “On the Boardwalk” and dotted the pepperoni with a white sharpie. The banner reads “Congratulations” since it would work perfectly for a male birthday 😉

Moving on to one of the more difficult cards in the kit – The Vintage Gas Pump Box Card:


For this card I used AC Cardstock in Oregano, Cranberry, White, Vanilla and black along with patterned paper from Graphic 45’s “A Proper Gentleman” and “Mercury Glass Cardstock” from DCWV.  I embossed the side panels with a folder from Sizzix and made two embellishments with my Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Tool – the small one I glued into a small Vintage Trinket from Prima. I also added a small green pearl brad and a small Game-Spinner from Idea-ology. Then I made the hose from a length of cotton ribbon from my stash. The label reads: Happy Fathers Day 🙂

This card was so much fun to make and to search for embellishments and paper to use ❤

Finally I made the Taco Truck Box Card:


This is also a little more tricky card to make – I have some pieces left over and I know I made some mistakes here and there but all in all I’m cool with it.

For this card I used AC Cardstock in Oregano, Apricot, Scarlet, Black, Dandelion, Cranberry, Limeanade, Vanilla and Chestnut along with patterned paper from Graphic 45’s “Bohemian Bazaar.” I also used silver foiled paper and vellum and dotted the small taco with a thin black liner. The labels I made from print and cut and files found in the Silhouette Design Store here and here. Last but not least I used some small dots from Simple Stories as tomatoes in the taco and as tail- and headlights on the truck.

All in all this was so much fun to put together – took me little over a day to make all the cards and I got to use some of my old but cherished paper. Now I have cards ready for lots of occasions like Fathers Day and male (or female) celebrations.
