Welcome box

Ibland när vi ska få hem gäster på middag tycker jag att det är kul att göra någon form av välkomstgåva som står vid varje tallrik. Det ger en liten lyxig känsla - och så är det så kul att få göra dem!
Här är en liten box gjord av ett papper ur Reprints härliga "köksserie". Boxen är gjord efter en mall som jag hittat på Internet. Sedan har jag sotat alla vikta kanter och ytterkanterna.

Sometimes when we get guests home for dinner, it's fun to do some kind of welcome gift lying on each plate. It gives a little touch of luxury - and it's so fun to do them!
Here is a small box made of a paper from Reprints lovely "kitchen series". The box is made by a template that I found on the Internet. I have inked all folded edges and outer edges.

Skylten är stämplad med en välkomsttext samt med en stämpel med glas på i en svag färg så att det bara syns lite i bakgrunden. Några pärlor och ett par blommor fick också plats.

The plate is stamped with a welcome note, and a stamp with glass was stamped in a light color so it just shows a bit in the background. A few pearls and a few flowers were also glued on.

Inuti asken syns den andra sidan av pappret, som egentligen är framsidan tror jag. Men som med alla Reprints papper är båda sidorna lika fina! Det är alltid svårt att välja, men det är ett kärt bekymmer =)

Inside the box you can see the other side of the paper, which is really the front, I think. But as with any of Reprints paper, both sides just as nice! It´s always difficult to choose, but it is a dear trouble  =)

Tack för idag! Kram, DT-Liza

Thanks for today! Hugs, DT-Liza

Creativa 2017

Hallo Ihr Lieben,

falls Ihr vom 15.-19. März 2017 zur Creativa-Messe nach Dortmund kommt, plant einen Stopp am Stand 6.C10 ein und sagt "Hallo".

Wir freuen uns auf euch!


Hiya everyone,

today I am showing you a simple card which I've created last night. It's made out of kraftpaper and topped with several design papers by Reprint. The image can be found on one of the A4 papers and it's just perfect as a card topper. Make sure to check out the A4 papers as they have all sort of themes such as vacations, brands and many more. I also added the great rose stamp as I wanted the card to look more playful. Let me know what you think...

Hip hurray!

På våren har jag många runt mig som fyller år. Det är alltid bra att ha några grattiskort redo att ta till. Just detta har jag redan en person i åtanke för. Pappret med brädorna på är ett av mina absoluta favoriter (tillsammans med Basic Collection:-)!

In spring, I´ve many birthdays I want to celebrate. It´s always good to have some birthday cards ready to use. For this card in particular I already have someone in mind. The paper with the boards are one of my absolute favorites (along with Basic Collection :-)!

Jag har stämplat direkt på bakgrundspappret, jag ville få en liten känsla av "klotterplank". Några blommor i olika storlekar kompletterar det hela.

I´ve stamped directly on the background paper, I wanted to get a little feeling of "graffiti wall". Some flowers of various sizes complement the card.

Tack för idag! Kram; DT-Liza

Thanks for today! Hugs, DT-Liza

Background Technique Workshop: distress inks and stencils

Hiya everyone,

as promised last week I've created a little workshop for you on how to work with distress ink and stencils to create a great background:

1. Take a blank sheet of paper or any high quality design paper you like. Make sure the paper isn't coated or glossy. I suggest the paper by Reprint as they are not only beautiful but also high quality and able to soak up the extra liquid of the ink.

2. Place a stencil of your choise on the paper. Make sure the table you're working on is covered with some old newspaper or foil as it will be hard to get the paint off the table.

3. Use a sponge dabber, small sponge or one of these fancy mini ink blending tools from the reprint shop.

4. Choose any distress ink you like. You can even pick several colors if you like. I went for Evergreen Bough and Weathered Wood, which you can also find in the store. Make sure to start with the brighter color and hold the sponge upright to add the ink. Start by making little circles from the outside towards the middle of the paper so the colors will blend even more nicely.

5. You're actually already done by now, but if you like, you can even add another layer by moving the stencil a bit or choosing a differnt stencil to work with.

6. Take another color and just let the magic happen...

You can combine this background technique with any card, ATC or project you like. This it what I came up with last week. You can find all the details and details on the materials I've used here:

I hope you enjoyed this little workshop and I am looking forward to seing your project. Please make sure to tag them with #reprinthobby so we can have a look. Thank you.
