Just a little bit of fun....

Hello everyone and welcome to all of you but specially my new followers! Well if you are here on the day this is posted, then I wish you a very happy Valentines Day. May you spend it among your loved ones.
Today I had some fun playing with some Nicecrane goodies:

A little goodie bag for a nostalgic loved one. The bag is just the right size for a size 10 Manila tag (plus some crafting goodies should you wish). The vocal image is from one of several Peter Rabbit sets. The images in these are so adorable. They come in various sizes, with or without backgrounds. I used two pngs and put them together in my own background, just for fun. Unfortunately they can't be sold in the UK or Europe, but if you are from across the pond, check them out! For the rest of the bag I played around with inks and sprays, a texture folder from Sizzix and other bits and pieces flying around my desk. Here are some close ups:



Sorry for the horrible blue tones in these photos, the light was bad once again when I took them...
For the tag inside I used one of the images from the Tiny Tots ABC Collection, equally adorable and from a similar age, so I think they match in style.
Again I created a background with inks and stains and some stamping and embellished with die cut leaves for a woodland feel.

The embellishment at the top is a Vintaj leaf that I put through a Sizzix texture plate and then sanded.

Well this is a bit different from my usual stuff but I had good fun playing. Thank you for visiting and I will be back tomorrow with the usual freebies...☺

  9. My dear Astrid,
    I wish I could sit with you, and learn---watching you treat all those papers and dies- inks and tecniques- that alwayes ends up being very beautiful art pieces in your hands.
    The sweet images on the bag, are just home in your created surroundings ,and the tag is like watching outside my window ,in the dusk ,seing the squirrel in my apple tree. Such wonderful layers of ink and stamps, and that leaf looks fantastic.
    Astrid thank you for your loving comment on my blog, it warmed my heart and made my day happy .
    Love and hugs from Dorthe

  13. Absolutely gorgeous work here again Astrid, I just sooo love this tag, as I´ve also always really loved all the Beatrix Potter images and have quite a few of them too and love to use them too, but I´ve never made something as beautiful as this, that´s for sure. You are the master, that´s for sure. I just love this one.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
