Theia – Mixed Media Lamp Art Doll – Canvas Corp Brands

Hello everyone! As you might have noticed, I´ve met quite a few of my international scrappy friends this year (it´s been a good year – meeting creative friends is the best!!!). Some of them I met at various events/fairs and some of them I visited or they visited me. The latest visitor came a long way across the big ocean and stayed a few days at my place. We had been talking about this get-together for a loooong time and it was so great we could finally make it work!

(click the photo ABOVE to see the person I am talking about :-) :-)…)

SAnna Lippert, mixed media art dollBesides doing sightseeing and eating lots, we also took some time to get creative together! I really enjoyed having Tina around and I wish she could have stayed longer. BUT there is always next time, isn´t there!!! So we naturally went looking for fun junk to alter. Part of it was sponsored by my lovely husband – thanks for the great old bicycle lamps, honey!! AND part of the treasures were found at the Naschmarkt Flea Market. After having gathered all kinds of pieces together, our hands were itching for some creative time. We both altered a bicycle lamp to a mixed media art doll. Both in our own way. Today I´m sharing my creation here with a little tutorial to go with it and Tina will share her´s on her blog (follow this link). This is how I created my „Theia“:

SAnna Lippert, mixed media art dollStep 1 – First, attach the lamp and the podium together with screws and make sure the parts do not move around. Without sanding or pre-treating the surface, start applying the Black Decor & DIY paint onto the lamp surface. Let dry and then apply a layer of Crackle Medium. It is best to let it dry over night. Repeat the same procedure on the podium, but this time using the Decor & DIY and paint in the color Mankato.

SAnna Lippert, mixed media art dollSAnna Lippert, mixed media art dollStep 2 – If the Crackle Medium is strong like mine and the cracks are too wide/big, apply another layer of paint. I needed to do this.

SAnna Lippert, mixed media art dollSAnna Lippert, mixed media art dollStep 3 – Take 4 sheets of old book paper and fold them into a fan. Glue together with hot glue to create a circle. Attach it to the “doll head” with hot glue. Add vintage photo  distress ink around the edges and spray with water mist to get the ink to react and spread. Dry with a heat gun. Then apply silver glitter glue for interest. Let dry.

SAnna Lippert, mixed media art dollSAnna Lippert, mixed media art dollStep 4 – Attach a brass crown on top of the “doll head” with hot glue. Add some Mankato toned paint on top to alter it. Attach half pearls on top. Next attach a piece of lace as a “hair band” and create a bow. Glue down with hot glue (but don’t burn your fingers!). Decorate with half pearls. Attach jump rings as earrings to both sides of the head.

SAnna Lippert, mixed media art dollStep 5 – Create a sentiment sign (mine says: ‘Explore Life’, and is made out of a piece of old book paper with a rub-on statement). Glue it in place with hot glue. Paint chipboard stars with Decor & DIY Paint in Black, and attach around the podium. Wrap a strip of silver yard on top and attach a half pearl on top of each star. Alter some brass pieces and attach with heat glue. I used various brass leaves for decoration. One on front and two as wings on both sides.

SAnna Lippert, mixed media art dollSAnna Lippert, mixed media art dollStep 6 – Finally use hot glue to glue down false eyelashes and attach a row of small half pearls on top. You can add more decorations to it if you would like, but I only added a little DIY lace flower on the back of the folded paper piece. That way the back of the doll also looks more interesting. The doll now decorates my studio area. The doll reminds me a bit of the Pixar lamp, but also has elements of a frilled-neck lizard, a gypsy princess and even Achilles. How’s that for a junk lamp art doll?

SAnna Lippert, mixed media art dollSAnna Lippert, mixed media art dollI hope you get inspired to take a second look at junk lying around your house and create a fun decoration out of it!! Have fun!!!

…and now make sure you check out Tina´s creation!!! I love her work, and this piece is no exception!!!! It was such a pleasure having you around Tina, I miss your company very much! We need to do this again very soon – one way or the other :-) !!

Happy creating,

Girly birthday card

Hello lovelies! How about a colored image card for a change? I know, I don´t do them that much, but I was asked to create a girly birthday card and while brainstorming about it, I was flicking thru a coloring book by Stampington and spotted the perfect image. It made a great centerpiece for the birthday card! Here is what I created:

Sanna Lippert - Girly Birthday CardVery pink with lots of glitter and girlish feeling going on on this one ;-). I really enjoyed coloring the image. I used to spend hours and hours with coloring books as a child. And it still is lots of fun.

Sanna Lippert - Girly Birthday CardI did some doodling around the edges with a black and white paint pen (by Dylusions). Really like how those little details make the edges pop. The recipient of the card likes glitter, so I tried to incorporate as much as I possibly could. I added die cut, double sided adhesive hearts onto the background and then poured two tones of Elizabeth Craft Designs Silk Microfine Glitter onto those areas. The darker tone is Bright Grape and the lighter one is called Copper Rose.

I also added a die cut sentiment, colored the words black with a marker and then treated the surface with a Wink of Stella silver brush. The number 9 is an from an older Pink Paislee collection – since it has a nice glitter surface, it works perfect for this card. And I do love the nice sparckle the glitter adds to the card.

I sure hope the recipient likes her card!!! I had a good time creating this piece – even though it totally differs from my usual cards.

ps. for a short video, on how to apply the glitter, see THIS link!

Glitter cloud card – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hi there, today it is my turn over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog again and I´d like to share a clean and simple styled card with you. I was recently organizing my Elizabeth Craft Designs die cut dies and while doing it, had a card idea that I immediately needed to try.

Sanna LippertHere is how I went along creating this card:

  1. Adhere a Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheet onto a piece of white cardstock. Cut two paperstrips in the width to fit the cloud die cut dies from the Rainbow Sky die cut set onto it.
  2.  Cut 13 pieces of clouds, using both cloud die cut sizes.
  3. Take a antistatic working surface (for example a coffee filter), place a jar of Warm Diamon Silk Microfine Glitter over the working surface, remove the protective sheet of the adhesive and start dibbing the clouds into the glitter. Polish the glitter with your finger and repeat until you have treated all 13 pieces the same way.
  4. Take a light blue alcohol marker and a blending pen. Draw a thin line with the light blue marker around the edges of the clouds. Using the blender pen, work your way from the edges towards the center of the card and blend the light blue color towards the center. Make sure you treat the whole cloud area with the blending pen to get an even result. Take a card base (10,5cm x 13,7cm) and a piece of white cardstock in the same size.
  5. Assembly the clouds onto the white cardstock and when you like the lineup, adhere them onto their places, except for the ones in the center of the card. Put those aside and adhere them after die cutting, use 3D foam tape to make the last cloud stand out from the rest of them.
  6. Place a Dotted Scallop Rectangles die cut die (the second largest in the set) onto the cloud paper and roll through a die cutting machine.
  7. Carefully remove the die cut rectangle piece from the die cutting machine – since the clouds are a bit sticky still, you will need to be careful to keep the paper from tearing.
  8. Apply Clear Double Sided Adhesive strips from a roll onto the back of this die cut piece and adhere the background onto the card base.
  9. Add a preferred sentiment – I chose to use a hand written sentiment in black and some tiny alpha stickers – and embellish with half pearls in matching color.

Sanna LippertSanna LippertHere is a start-to-finish video about the card making process:

I hope you get inspired to try this idea out. I really enjoyed creating this glittery cloud background! Imagine how many beautiful backgrounds you could create this way just by changing the die cut die to match the occasion.

Sanna

STAMPlorations Stencil Sunday & Mixed Media Challenge

Hi there lovelies!! Time to share my very first STAMPlorations project with you and today is Stencil Sunday time! Because it´s the first Sunday of the month, it is also time for the monthly Mixed Media Challenge over at the blog.

Here is my project:

Sanna Lippert - Stencil SundayI altered/decorated a fabric bag with stencils, paint, stamps and buttons. I also created a small tag that fits into the bag to go with the fabric piece. Filled with small metal trinkets, this little altered present bag will be a present to one of my scrappy friends. I think she might like the metal bits and pieces…

How did I create this set?

Sanna Lippert - Stencil SundayStep 1: Take the ARTplorations „Bold Florals Mini“ stencil and place it onto the canvas/fabric bag. Add a first layer of High Impact Paint (by Tattered Angels) with a foam brush onto the fabric. Start with the lighter color. Then add the second layer of darker High Impact Paint thru the same stencil, but this time dab the paint only around the center area of the flowers. Let dry.Sanna Lippert - Stencil SundayStep 2: There is now plenty of residue paint on the stencil. Place it down onto the tag the paint area facing towards the tag. Now use a brayer to create a print. Repeat with a new paint layer, when necessary. Next take a pink High Impact Paint and using the end of a paint brush, add little dots into the middle of the flowers. Let air dry.

Sanna Lippert - Stencil SundayStep 3: Add light green Glimmer Mist spray ink onto the tag and use a paper towel to remove residue ink. Then add a stamped sentiment and some bird images onto the bag and the tag. Finally, outline the tag with faux stitching, add fibers and black ink splatters to the tag for decoration. Attach little buttons to the bag for additional interest. Sanna Lippert - Stencil SundayNow fill the bag with the goodies and attach the tag to the bag. Your DIY present bag and present tag are ready :).

Choose to shine – the MMCC July challenge reveal

Hello there, everyone! Time to share July´s Mixed Media Card Challenge with you. This time you are asked to create a card around the theme: SPARCKLE. As an optional element you should use GEMS.

Here is my take:

Sanna LippertI used a black background paper and a The Crafter´s Workshop stencil to create the pattern. I first applied some pearlescent blue texture paste through the rose stencil, then I took glitter texture paste and applied some of that through the same stencil.

Next I stamped a sentiment on white cardstock, added some blue Distress ink on some areas and fussy cut the sentiment and glued it down. There are gem flowers and rhinestones in blue tones here and there for additional detail.

Sanna LippertSo now it is your turn to create a card for this challenge! I hope you find the time to join in with us!!! See you at MMCC!!!

Happy crafting,

Travelling tags and more – Canvas Corp Brands

Hi there, I have actually managed not to post some of my work on my blog since Christmas… about time to change that! I did a series of tags and a canvas that went to the Canvas Corp Brands CHA 2016 booth and have been travelling with them ever since :). Lucky tags – I wonder if they´d take me instead of the tag *giggles*…

I´ll start with tag No.1:

Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertPretty much everything on this tag is Canvas Corp Brands product (the corrugated cardboard, the spray inks, the Tattered Tangles paper, the burlap and the stamping. The only thing that is not their product, are the stencils I used and the &-sign. Now to tag No.2:

Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertThis again, is a full Canvas Corp Brands product tag. It´s Christmas themed, since there was a little Xmas corner on the CCB booth at CHA. And then there was tag No. 3:

Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertThis one is quite clean & simple actually. I did add quite an amount of Distress Glitter on it :). And the bow, the bow was my personal favorite on it. I wanted to keep it as an eye catcher. Here again, mists, stamping and paper by CCB. And there was also a canvas I sent them: Sanna LippertI´m really happy this one made it to the display. I like the colors on it alot. Again, I´ve used all kinds of Tattered Angels goodness on this one. In addition corrugated cardboad by CCB, lots of misting, some die cut dies and some stamping.  Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertI really like the product lines at Canvas Corp Brands. Everything works together, older or new product! All paper lines are very timeless. I obviously have a weak spot for their color lines, but I recommend you check out their canvas, burlap and fabric lines too. And don´t forget the papers :). Love working with this company´s product!!!

I also sent some other work with all these pieces to CHA, but that has been already shared here at some point, so no need to mention those again.

Happy crafting,

A set of maritime ATC cards – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hi there, my turn again today at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog to share a project. This time it is a set of maritime ATC cards.

Sanna LippertI love summer, sand and sea and therefore chose to create ATC cards around this theme. The new Joset Designs die cut dies are just perfect for creating such artist trading cards!! Here are the steps on how to create these ATC cards:

Sanna LippertStep 1: Cut a piece of the Through the Lens – Wood patterned paper into a size of 64mm x 89 mm (or 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 inch).Sanna LippertStep 2: Apply golden texture paste onto the piece of paper through a stencil with a palette knife. Let air dry.Sanna LippertStep 3: Take the „wave“ die cut die from the Boat die cut set and cut a piece of Soft Finish Cardstock – Mustard with the die. Adhere to the left side of the ATC.Sanna LippertStep 4: Apply some black ink splatters onto the background. Let air dry. Attach a piece of twine with a stapler onto the background, on top of the Mustard cardstock piece.Sanna LippertStep 5: Adhere another piece of Through the Lens – Wood patterned paper onto a sheet of Clear Double Sided Adhesive and use the boat´s wheel die cut from the Boat die cut set to cut 3 pieces from the paper. Adhere next to the Mustard cardstock piece.Sanna LippertStep 6: Use an old typewrite to write a sentiment for the ATC card, outline the words with a black pen.
Sanna LippertStep 7: For the second ATC, use the negative piece of the previously used Through the Lens – Wood patterned paper and adhere that onto a piece of Chocolate Soft Finish Cardstock. Add a wavy border and a piece of twine, like on the previous ATC card. Ink the edges with Distress Ink Vintage photo. Die cut some more boat´s wheel pieces, this time from the Mustard toned cardstock. Attach those onto the open spaces (include the whole piece, do not remove any parts). Apply Glossy Accents to mimic the boat´s wheel shape. Let air dry properly.Sanna LippertStep 8: Again add a typewrite sentiment and outline the words with a black pen. For additional interest, adhere small wood veneer pieces on top.
Sanna LippertStep 9: Again cut a piece of Through the Lens – Wood patterned paper into the ATC card size. Take a piece of Brick Red Soft Finish Cardstock and attach a piece of Clear Double Sided Adhesive on the back. Use the Seaweed die cut die to cut a piece of coral. Adhere onto the background. Don´t throw the negative piece away, we will use it later. I love using both the positive and negative parts!
Sanna LippertStep 10: Cut the Seahorse from a piece of white cardstock. The pieces are again backed with Clear Double Sided Adhesive. Color with blue and pink Distress Ink.Sanna LippertStep 11: Adhere the Seahorse next to the coral piece. Apply some glitter glue here and there on the Seahorse piece for a fun detail. Sanna LippertStep 12: Draw circles with a white pen onto the background to add movement and interest. Sanna LippertStep 13: Add a typewriter sentiment, outline with a black pen and add doodling around the edges. Sanna LippertStep 14: For the last ATC, again cut a piece of Through the Lens – Wood pattered paper into a ATC size, then cut a piece of Teal Soft Finish Cardstock in size of 4,5cm x 5,7 cm and adhere the negative coral piece on top of the teal one. Sanna LippertStep 15: Attach light blue, small eyelets onto each corner of the Brick Red cardstock piece. Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertStep 16: Draw white circles onto the background, then adhere the Brick Red cardstock piece into the middle. Next adhere a typewriter sentiment, outlined with a black pen, on top. Add glitter glue details here and there onto the blue coral piece. Finally add outlining with a black and white pen and some wood veneer piece for additional detail. This is what the finished pieces look like:Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertI hope you get inspired to create some maritime ATC cards yourself!!

Travel ATC cards – The Nifty Pixel

Hello lovelies!!! It is again time to share a hybrid tutorial with some The Nifty Pixel product. This time I´ve created a set of four ATC cards with the Wanderlust digi kit collection:

Wanderlust Collection by The Nifty PixelHere is how I created these ATC cards:

Sanna LippertThese are the materials I started with (3 sheets of patterned paper and some additional elements from the kit, plus two pieces of plain white cardstock).

Sanna Lippert

I first cut two pieces of the globe paper into a ATC size (64 mm × 89 mm).

Sanna LippertNext I cut the tiny tags from the tag patterned paper, punched holes on top of them with the piecing tool by Tim Holtz and added some sewing yearn thru the holes. Boy, those tags sure were tiny!!! Sanna LippertAfter that I adhered the tags onto the globe paper, fussy cut a b&w printed sentiment (from the elements in the kit) and outlined the ATC with a black pen. Next I tore some wanderlust paper and glued that piece o top of the tiny tags. Sanna LippertAfter that I took a piece of corrugated cardboard and adhere that piece on top of the yellow paper (overlappingly). Finally I fussy cut a „R We There Yet“ badge and added a orange colored banner on both sides. Sanna LippertFinally I also added some black ink splatters as well as some Glossy Accents details onto the artist trading card. Sanna LippertFor the second ATC I did similar things. Added a teared paper piece, then added a tiny tag paper on top and attached a strip of twine with a stapler on top. underneath all this there is a little piece of real glitter paper, just to add some shine to the card. Sanna LippertLike on the previous one, I added a badge image on top and underneath there is a corrugated cardboard banner for dimension. Also on this one I highlighted some areas with Glossy Accents. Sanna Lippert..and I just could not resist, I had to add some black Glimmer Glaze :). Sanna LippertThis is what the first two ATC´s look like. Now off to the next two:Sanna LippertFor these I used the wanderlust paper as a base. I cut some leaves from the tiny tags paper and outlined those with a black pen to give them a bit more structure. I also like to add outlining to my cards, therefore the black pen outline here again. Sanna LippertI had a negative die cut flower piece lying on my table and I found that I suited the travel theme very well, so I fussy cut it and adhered it on a piece of glitter cardstock (from my stash). I then again used some elements from the kit – printed in black & white! – as my sentiment on the ATC card. The became a coat of Glossy Accents to give them a bit more dimension. Finally some blue yarn under the wood veneer piece finalized the ATC. Sanna LippertNow for the last one. Here again I used the yellow patterned paper as my starting point. The black and white elements on the photo are from the kit – but just not printed in color. That adds a nice almost vintage kind of feel to the trading card. I used some bits and bobs from my stash, like the leftover piece of double sided adhesive. And the corc piece is from my stash too. Sanna Lippert I added the adhesive pieces on top of the paper, applied some copper microfine glitter on top. Sanna LippertThen all I needed to do was to assembly the previously picked pieces onto the surface, add some outlining, ink splatters and glossy highlights! This one is he simplest one of them all, but I really like the white space on it alot. And now some finished ATC card photos:

Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertOh, forgot to mention, as you might notice, I´ve added a wood veneer piece or two later and covered those with golden glitter glue. Just could not stop, I quess…. :-)

Sanna LippertAs you can see, ATC cards don´t require much, you can go a long way with little bits and pieces. All those hybrid paper pieces you have as leftovers from your projects, why not use them for a quick tag or ATC card? Those are really fun to make!!! Hope you enjoyed this little hybrid step-by-step!

Happy hybrid scrapbooking,
xxx, Sanna

ps. two of these already went on their way and ended up in the US – was happy to swap with this girl :) – another fun fact about ATC cards, you get to swap them and get to know new like minded, crafty people in the process! A definite win win!!

Lollypop die set possibilities – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hi there, it´s my turn again over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog today. I´m sharing two cards created with the Lollypop die cut die set.

Sanna LippertAgain this card idea started from my previous project, the Lollypop cards. I had a negative piece of white die cut paper on my table, cut with the Lollypop die. I looked at it and I suddenly saw lemons! This is how these cards came together:

Sanna LippertStep 1: I used the Lollypop die cut leftover piece and placed a Fitted Circle die (the smallest one of them) on top of the paper and ran it thru the die cutting machine. As a result I had a set of „lemons“.
Sanna LippertStep 2: Spray yellow and green spray ink onto the pieces. This way you have lemons and limes.
Sanna LippertStep 3: Cut circles from Through the Lens – Wood paper with the smallest Fitted Circles die. Adhere these pieces together to create lemons and limes.
Sanna LippertStep 4: Finish the card by cutting a piece of Through the Lens – Wood paper as a card background. Align the lemon and lime pieces overlappingly on one side of the card. Use an old typewriter to type a sentiment. Outline with black pen and add black spray ink splatters for additional detail.

Sanna LippertStep 5: Now for the second card. The Lollypop die set is really very versatile. You can use the Lollypop to create balloons too! I used an old canvas paper leftover piece and cut balloons with the Lollypop die.
Sanna LippertStep 6: Use a Through the Lens – Metal patterned paper as a card background. Attach ivory hemp cord to the balloons and adhere the balloons with 3D foam squares onto the card. Use an old typewrite to create a suitable sentiment. Outline with a black and a white pen and add white ink splatters for additional interest. Here are the finished cards:

Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertI love using the dies in various ways and finding new way of using them in my card making projects. Imagine all the fun ways you can use a particular die set!!!

Sanna
