Hello and happy Monday! Are you familiar with „Denglish“? It´ s German phrases translated into english basically word for word. So it probably sounds very horrible for a native English speaking person, but German native speakers find them quite funny and they have become very trendy. Well, I now own a Denglish stamp set that I absolutely love 🙂 – thus this card:
I got mine from Dani Peuss – it´ s one of the Klartext stamp sets. This particular sentiment, translated into proper English means: „How are you doing?“. I´ ve also used the „Scribble Kreise“ stamp set and the „Mixed Media Christmas“ stamp set on this card with „Deglish 2“ stamp set. I used watercolour paper on the background and inked the circle image with Distress Oxide ink tones and misted the ink before stamping. That created a „watercolour“ image. After the background was dry, I added some patterns with yellow oxide ink and finished the card off with black stamped sentiments and a few enamel dots.
It´ s a special card that will need a recipient who „gets“ the denglish expression :-). I hope all is good at your end and your week started in a nice way. Fall is here, so I´ m a bit sad, like every year, because I already miss summer. But I will just have to craft the sadness away.
Hello and happy Thursday! Today´ s share is a mixed media piece, created using various leftover pieces from my „junk bag“. I was thinking I could frame this piece and give it away as a present to someone :).
On the background I have a gelli printed tissue piece, then some stenciling with Nuvo Crackle Mousse thru a STAMPlorations stencil. After that I´ ve got some Distress Paint and some Nuvo Shimmer Powder added to the background. The circles are from a leftover Glossy Spray sprayed piece. I just fussy cut them and added some outlining with a Posca pen. For finishing touches I added a stamped sentiment (using Klartext stamps) and a vintage figure that I also fussy cut out of a poster.
Here you can see some of the shimmer powder on the left bottom corner, by the way. I will add this piece to my „ugly art“ mixed media piece collection. I really enjoy doing these artworks, because it allows me to just play and add stuff without giving it too much thought.
Wishing you a great Thursday evening – it´ s almost Friday, lovelies! xxx, Sanna
Hello and happy Tuesday! It´ s a tag share kind of day today. I´ ve again used leftover pieces and went towards ugly art again for a change.
The background was a really ugly alcohol ink experiment piece what I cut into a tag shape and „un-uglied“ it as well as I could ;-). I added some Dina Wakley Gloss Sprays, some Nuvo Crackle Mousse thru a stencil and a piece of gelli printed tissue paper. For a focal point I chose a Klartext stamp and a Collage Collective (also by Dina) face that I colored in with Distress Crayons and Gloss Spray.
I think she turned out pretty okay. I hope your day is great! I´ ll have a day off tomorrow (yay!), because someone I know once said one should not work on ones birthday ;-). So there, I´ m taking the day off and doing something nice!!
Hello and happy Monday! Today I´ m sharing a another clean and simple card, created with Klartext stamps. For this one I used the „Folg deinem Herz“ stamp set with the super cute Summer Vibes P13 papers.
One of the papers had these cute stripes in pastel tones that exactly fit the width of the stamp sentiment, so I used it to my advantage and added a stamped and embossed sentiment in every second line with a matching embossing ink tone.
It really made the backgroud so much fun and also interesting for the card recipient. I hope it makes them smile, when they read the words. For a focal point I chose two ephemera pieces from the Summer Vibes collection and added some stamping to the signs as well. There I used Klartext „Moon“ and „Handgemacht“ stamp set with black stamp ink. In the end I just adhered everything on place and the card was done. Easy!
Wishing you a good start into the new week!! xxx, Sanna
Hello and happy Sunday! For today´ s project share I have created another card – this time for a birthday – using the Dani Peuss Klartext stamps. This one is called „Pfingstrosen“ and it is a lovely flower set.
I took a piece of white paper, inked it with Distress Inks in two blue tones and added water droplets to the background to create some pattern to the colour. Next I stamped and heat embossed the flowers to the backround paper with white heat embossing powder. After that I added embossing enamel to some areas. For the sentiment I wripped a piece of vellum and heat embossed the birthday sentiment with gold embossing powder using the Klartext „Folg deinem Herzen“ stamp set.
For finishing touches I added a few golden enamel dots. This adds nice detail and a little additional texture to the card, but does not make it too bulky for shipping.
That´ s it for today! See you again tomorrow with anothr project share. Enjoy your Sunday,
