Retirement card

Hello and happy Monday! How about a retirement card for a change?

I used Stampin´ Up! background stamps for this one with older border stickers and embellishments from my older stash.

The chipboard is inked with Hero Arts shadow inks as are the tags. For stamping I also used Hero Arts shadow inks in grey and brown tones. the buttons, and the stickers are from my older stash again, but perfectly go with each other, regardless of their age.

As this card is for a gentleman, I went with masculine colors and patterns and added a Tim Holtz paper doll as a focal point into the center of the cluster. The size is bigger than usual – 10×6 inches, because many people will sign this one, so we need some extra space. I sure do hope the recipient will like his card.

PS. I also joined #the100dayproject this year too. If you want to follow what I am doing there, go and follow my YouTube channel or my Insta here.

Mixed media card

Hello and happy Saturday! Here is a card with layers, but still not too bulky:

I started with a patterned paper in grey tones (older Studio Calico) and added some grey stamping (Tonic Studios) with on old number stamp set (also by Studio Calico). After that I added some texture paste thru a Tim Holtz stencil to the background and grabbed some grey toned Glimmer Mist to add driplets on top. After that I stamped some stars with black ink and colored them red with a Posca pen.

On top of that I attached some cord in white with a stapler and for finishing touches adhered Tim Holtz snippets into a cluster to the card. I left a sentiment out this time – I might add one when I figure out, who will receive this card.

I am always happy to incorporate older product into my cards. And the stamps like numbers never go out of style in my opinion.

Happy crafting!

Stenciled birthday card

Hello and happy Thursday! Here is another stenciled birthday card share:

For this one I used a 6×6 The Crafter´s Workshop stencil with Distress Oxide ink and on top of that I added some woodgrain paper and stickers and ephemera from Simple Stories “Good Stuff” collection.

Next I stamped a sentiment with a Klartext stamp and added wonky hand drawn “circles” here and there for interest. And Voilá! The card was done.

What´s your favorite thing to do when creating cards? I do love stencils much :-). And also adding little bits and bobs, but not too much at once.

Happy crafting,

White space birthday card

Hello and happy Tuesday! Here is yet another white space card share:

For this one I again used Distress Oxide inks with a AALL & Create stencil and some Tim Holtz snippets ephemera. The ribbon and the patterned paper are from my older stash and the stamp is by Klartext.

I am slowly preparing for #the100dayproject by writing a list of themes I could paint/draw during the 100 days. Let´s see if the idea works at all, but I am at least going to give it a try.

Happy crafting,

Patterned paper card

Hello and happy Sunday! Here is another card you can create really fast and easy:

For the background, take a patterned paper with a flower pattern and add some stenciling with white texture paste and stencil on top. Let dry. Then take a scalloped rectangle die cut die and cut a journaling card from the same paper pack. Adhere a ribbon onto the card, then using 3D-foam, adhere some ephemera and the die cut piece on place.

Decorate with rhinestones and white Vintage Nuvo Drops and you are done. If you want, you can even add a stamped sentiment to the card (optional).

Hoping your Sunday is as happy as are the colors in this card!
