USING MY NEW STENCIL AND DIE CUT ,CREATING A NATURE CARD !!

I just bought a new birds die-cut and stencil, both from Tim Holz ,
and both wonderful, I think !!


I played around with them, creating this card ,also using old papers,
a bird cutout, from a nature book, laces, nature remnants  found on
the beach (for the nest)



a rusted piece of lace, which was rolled around a bundle of fabrics,
rusted pieces, teas and other strange things , and layed for some 
months outside, while raining very much !!


Also the paper seen here was in the bundle. As you know I love the 
nature tones , and materials, so here I`m back creating without 
much colour again.


Also this little driftwood angel shows no real colour, but I love her 
in nature wood, with white and a little gold !!


How are you all doing ? Here it is so cold again, grey skies, and also rain, 
it almost seems we did not have any real summer this year , hopefully we
will have sunshine days in August !!

I hope you have a little sommer if living in the nordic hemisphere,
and wishes you a wonderful new week.

Hugs and love , Dorthe

HOME AGAIN, AFTER WONDERFUL DAYS WITH MY FAMILY !!


So wanting to show you the last of my birthday gifts from very dear friends.
This beautiful tiny piece of  a rosary chain, formed as a childs bracelet,
my dear friend Liz  http://lululizinlalaland.blogspot.dk/ gifted
me , and I so love it. It now hangs around the neck of a loved mini teddy bear.


The old French paper it is laying on and all the others following
under this photo, are also most precious gifts from Liz .


Aren`t they wonderful, with the old handwritings, some so very beautiful,
and I love the labels, too.


Look how very beautiful!!


I will have to be very "strong" in mind to actually use these papers for 
my creations, and not just make copies ,Lol... they will be admired for
a long time ,before I can cut them , that`s for sure. 
My dearest Liz, thank you so very much, you are so generous, and a
very treasured friend .



Bettina   http://bbfilt.blogspot.dk/, my dear Danish friend 
gifted me these lovely handmade roses ,which I had wished for , and on the paperbag she 
had made the beautiful pink dress with the sweetest handmade velvet flower,



Also I recieved a "class" for learning to embroider lovely stitches for button making ,
isen`t her button so beautiful ?? 


I also wished for a felted white flower to add to a scharf, and Bettina felted this beauty to me,
Thank you so very much kæreste Bettina.
Bettinas Father is a wonderful drawer and painter, and she also gave me (us) 
a beautiful watercolour of the  seaside where we live , which Gunner Painted .
the photo I took , dosen`t do it justice so I will show it in my next post 
Mange tusind tak kære ven !!


Last but under no circumstances least,- from my dear friend Lynne  https://lynnesbowsandbelles.wordpress.com/
I recieved a most beautiful gift too.
Just see the card , I so love it, the wonderful stamped background,
the photo-real stamp the laces and colours , such a beauty.


See the fuzzy cut butterflyes!!


Also I unpacked this very lovely and beautifully decorated heart box.
Lynne knows me so well, and therefore created the most romantic gift, with the beautiful stamp,
-lace all around the heart shape (thank you for your heart, dear ) and
the roses on the lid. It is so beautiful.


Inside were lovely roses, a lot of different and sweet wooden shapes, to 
play with, a piece of old gorgeous lace,and different Masking tapes.



And as you can see here, Lynne also stamped the lid inside with golden ink.



Thank you from my heart , my treasured friend  ,I love it all , so much !!!
