CAS Wine Bottle Tag

Today I have used this die from Marianne Design for the first time.
I bought it some time ago,
but I did not have the inspiration to use it till now.
With this grape image from Beccy,
I think it will look great on a bottle.
This is really clean and simple.
I only used a marbled card stock,
the grape image from Beccy
and brown distress ink for the edges.
On the back side there is enough place to write a greeting.

Birthday card

During the last month
I did not have much inspiration for making cards.
But now I am back again,
and I start with this darling image from Beccy.

I used:
"Papeteria" double card square, chamois;
Paper: "Garden Party" from Dovercraft;
Brown, white and pink scrap papers;
Embossing folder:  Happy Birthday (Cuttlebug);
Die: Unknown;
Image, free hand cut: Beagle (Beccy's Place);
Sentiment: Beccy;
Corner punch: Heyda;
Heart punch: Martha Stewart;
Half pearls;
Brown distress ink for the edges;
Brown pen for the faux stitching.

Longing for spring

I did not made many cards till now this year.
Lack of inspiration!
We have had and still have a very cold winter,
and I am longing for spring!!!!
As I was young, I loved winter!
But now, well .......
I think this says more about my age than about the weather.
So to give myself a little feeling of spring,
I made this card.

I used:
"Papeteria" A6 double card, cream;
Marbled craft stock for the mat;
A stripe of dotted green paper from Bringmann;
Scrap papers: dark green, light green and cream;
Dies: Cottage Cutz "Ivy" (with my Cuttlebug);
Punch: EK Success;
Paper Poetry Flower pips;
Distress ink, pens, glitter glue and a gem stone.

I want to take place here:

Nature, snow, ice, winter sports and so on.
Please take a look at our page

You have got two weeks to join in.

For my DT card I used:

I coloured the stamp and the pine trees

I added a little bit of silver glitter glue on and around the trees.

Nordsalten Hobbyklubb har en utfordring
der en skal vise hva en er best på.
Når det gjelder kort, liker jeg godt CAS,
og det er vel CAS kort jeg lager mest av.
Men denne gangen har jeg IKKE laget kort,
derimot noen julekurver.
Jeg bor i Sveits, og her er denne formen for julepynt ukjent.
Men jeg liker godt julekurver.
De minner meg om koselige juleverksteder hjemme og på skolen.

Og så er jeg så glad i min Cuttlebug,
dies og embossing folders som kan brukes
på ulike måter.

Disse julekurvene er laget med en die fra Marianne Design.
Selvfølgelig kunne jeg ha brukt disse små kurvene på et kort,
men nå fikk de pynte juletreet.

Jeg ønsker å delta her:
