Have a marvelous day

Today, I am showing you a super simple CAS card. 



The tree on the front has been created using the tree die from the Puppy Love die and stamp set. The white cardstock has been mounted on 3D foam tape to create dimention and making the tree pop out from the green bckground paper.






The green dotty background paper is from the Pretty Perfect paper pad, and created a soft background colour on the card.


The little dog on the back is a stamp from the Puppy love stamp and die cut set. I just love the dies that come with this stamp set. It makes it so easy to cut around the stamps.

Mixed media light house with Extreme Sheen paints

Have you tried the new Extreme Sheen paints from Rayher? This is fantastic metallic paints with high gloss. They are fantastic to use for a lot of different projects. Here, I have tested them on an altered lighthouse from a second hand shop. 


First, I added washi tape over the windows, to protect these from paint and glue. Then, I added metal, wooden pieces and flowers. The ligh house was then spray painted black and then dry painted with Extreme Sheen paints.


The pink flowers has been fussy cut from the paper: Sainte Maxime - St. Tropez, from Prima.









The boat and the lighthouse in wood is old wooden figures from Kaisercraft. Under the boat, I used micro beads and screws.









Materials used:



Extreme Sheen - Metallic sapphire, 29 ml Extreme Sheen - Metallic pink Extreme Sheen - Metallik bronzet Extreme Sheen - Metallic gold 
Prima: Sainte Maxime - St. Tropez Prima: Copper - Finnabair Art Ingredients Micro Beads Liquitex: Super Heavy Matte

The impossible card

This card has been made as a gamer card, and is a super card for confirmation or a birthday for a gamer. 

After what I can see, this folding card started to take of in the beginning of April on You-tube. After this, a lot of people has made their own tutorials. This card, I have had on my table since April, and now I thought it was on time to blog it and show my version of the tutorial. The video audio is in Norwegian, as this is created for the Norwegian shop Hobbykunst

The card has got the name, "The impossible card" or "Det umulige kortet" in Norwegian. The card has got this name because it is difficult to see how the card has been folded when you look at the finished card. 



The base has been created in white cardstock. The wooden decor with is from Rayher.



The die on the standing up tag is from LDRS: Fancy Rectangles & Layers Die Set and the congratulation die is from Papirdesign.


The papers are from Papirdesign: Jernvareavdelingen, Opp og ned and Flott ungdom.




I have also decorated under the card. The "Admit one" ticket in glitter is from a paper from Bo Bunny - Cross Country - Whiteout Glitter



Tutorial (photos)

The measurements are just a suggestion, you can change them when you get used to the card fold. 


Cut out one piece of cardstock 12x14cm.


From the top: Cut half way in from the top (7cm) nd half way down on the card 6cm).
From the bottom: Cut 3 cm in from each side, and half way up to the center of the card (6cm).
The middle: Score between the cuts


Turn the card around, hold the middle part of the card up. 



Keep the left side as it is, and turn the bottom right part of the card down and under the card. 




As the card is now, it's difficult to see how the card has been folded, that is why it's got the name "The impossible card"
