Maternity leave – card

Hello lovelies! Today I am stopping by to share a maternity leave card with you. I combined the Dani Peuss May paper-add-on-kit with some Elizabeth Craft Designs die cut dies from my stash and also incorporated an older Martha Stewart flower punch.

The papers, except the white cardstock which is from my stash, are all from the May paper add-on-kit by Dani Peuss. I love the blue paper, because it has various shades on the sheet and when die cutting you get various shades on one piece and the wreath looks more interesting, when put together.

For the leaves (die by Elizabeth Craft Designs here too) on the wreath I used a yellow paper from the May paper add-on-kit and the punched hydrangea pieces are the backside of the blue paper. The cool thing about the DP papers is that they are double sided: more versatility.

In the middle of the hydrangeas I´ ve placed a drop of vintage Nuvo Drops in blue. The light blue alphas are at least 15 years old and still work very well. I chose them, because the matched the colours of the card so well. All in all a very clean and simple card, but I love the color combination so much.

Hope I could inspire you abit today. See you again soon with more artworks!

Take care, xxx, Sanna


7 Uhr Abends – Dani Peuss

Hallo ihr Lieben! Heute möchte ich ein weiteres Layout, die ich mit dem Juni-Kit von Dani Peuss gestaltet habe, mit Euch teilen. Dazu habe ich die neuen Stempelsets von Klartext: “Wie spät ist es?” & “unser schönes Zuhause” verwendet. (*for English version, just hit the Google Translate button on the sidebar*).

Als Hintergrund habe ich wieder (wie so oft) weißes Cardstock verwendet. Die bunten Kreise habe ich aus dem Papier vom Juni-Kit herausgeschnitten, die Ränder dann mit einer Schere etwas bearbeitet, damit sie hiervorstehen und dann noch mit Distress Oxide geinkt.

Am Hintergrund habe ich dann noch etwas mit dem “Newspaper 3” Klartext Stempel mit Distress Oxide Speckled Egg gestempelt. Das sieht man nur hie und da, wenn man genauer hinschaut.

Die Dekoteile sind auch alle aus dem Juni-Kit (außer die Blumensticker ganz unten rechts – die stammen aus dem Februar-Kit). Und zu den neuen Juni-Stempeln habe ich auch den “Go Veggie” Stempelset hier verwendet.

Die gelben Sterne am Layout sind nicht aus dem Kit, sondern stammen aus meinem Fundus und sind von BrambleFox. Hier ist noch ein Video über das Juni-Kit falls ihr Interessen an dem Kit bekommen habt:

Die Qualität des Fotos am Layout lässt etwas zum Wünschen übrig, aber da die Momentaufnahme so einzigartig ist/war, habe ich das Foto trotzdem verscrappt. Sowas kommt vielleicht nie wieder :).

Hier sind noch ein paar Detailfotos zur Inspiration:

Ich hoffe ich konnte Euch mit meiner Layoutidee etwas inspirieren. Wir sehen uns in ein paar Tagen wieder mit einer weiteren Kartenidee.

Bis dann, Sanna

Zur Taufe

Hello lovelies! Today´ s share is another pocket gift card – this time for christening. I used a cute hippo die cut die for this card – hope you like the inspiration!

It is a slimline card in size again, because I think gift pocket cards just look more festive in this size. So what do you think about the hippo? I just love it! It comes with both girly lashes or can be done for a boy theme too.

I die cut the image from light blue cardstock and inked the edges with Distress Oxide Speckled Egg tone. The teeth and the belly is die cut from white cardstock. I first colored the nails, ears and toes with a blue alcohol marker and outlined with a black one, but wanted to add more shine to them, so I applied Nuvo Drops on top in the end.

The German sentiment “Zur Taufe” is from Tonic Studios, as is the hippo, by the way. The blue paper I used on the inside and as my background paper is, I think, a digi paper designed by The Nifty Pixel. It just worked perfectly with the overall look of the card.

On top of the blue paper I added a piece of white cardstock which I added stamping onto (a Stampin´ Up! stamp) with Distress Oxide. I inked the edges in a darker blue for more contrast, but just very lightly.

On the inside I used the same papers and added a business card holder pocket with a flap for the present to be added. Here in Austria it is a tradition to gift “Philharmoniker” gold coins for christening, so they will fit nicely into the pocket. On the right side there is enough white space for a nice greeting, too.

The pocket flap mechanism is an easy fold from light blue cardstock and on the business card sleeve there is a strip of double sided clear adhesive. After adding the coins it can easily be closed and the coins will not fall out even if you tilt the card.

I hope I could inspire you a little with this gift pocket card! See you again next week with more crafty shares! Have a great weekend,

Veggie-Album – May spread

Hello everyone and happy Friday! Today I am stopping by to share the May-spread of my year-long vegeterian monthly journal, where I document the journey I started in January 2022. This time it´ s time for the May spread:

I have been eating a vegetarian menu since end of January now and on these two pages I documented the most important things that happened in May – diet wise. I have become a tea-junkie. No coffee for me anymore. I love drinking tea now! I find it also very calming for some reason.

I have also managed to get over the April tiredness (that was due Covid) and did so much sport in May that I hardly can believe it myself :). And I feel better again. Also I bought another veggie cook book – this time for baking. I miss baking since I changed my diet, so I got myself new recipies to experiment with :).

Here is a short start-to-finish on the pages, too:

I also let some labwork done on my blood values and they look good, except I need to add Vitamin B12 supplements to my diet, as I am not eating meat anymore. That was something I was calculating to happen at some point, so no surprise there. So I am taking the supplements now to keep the levels in right order. Other than that I am still going strong with the new diet and feeling really good doing it. So I´ ll keep doing it.

I have used the new “unser schönes Zuhause” Klartext stamp set on this page. And here is a short video on the new stamp sets for June:

The papers used in this album (and also the album) are all from previous months Dani Peuss kits. I will link all products in the links at the end. I hope I could inspire you a bit with this share. See you soon with more crafty stuff!

Clean & Simple Slimline card – Dani Peuss

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I´ m sharing a clean and simple slimline card, created using Dani Peuss products and one of the new Klartext stamp sets. There is a video on this post about the new stamp sets and also about the paper kit I used on this card :).

I wanted to create a very simple card this time, just using small bits from the June-Kit (the banner by Maggie Holmes) and then stamped the “50” with the new “Wie Spät ist es?”-stamp set (translates to: how late is it?). I also used the sentiment set called “So viele Kerzen” (=so many candles) here and the gorgeous “Herbstmagie” papers – also a paper collection by Dani Peuss.

But first, here is a peek on the new stamp sets (for product links see the end of this post):

and this is the paper kit by Dani Peuss that I used on the card background:

For additional details I just added a few tiny Nuvo Vintage drops in blue and the card was ready.

This would also be a good card for a masculine birthday, because it´ s so simple in design. I hope you enjoy the videos and the inspiration! I´ m off to a long weekend and hopefully some sunshine and outside time.

Take care,
xxx, Sanna
