#finishedinfeb – final set of cards

Hello and happy Sunday! Today I´m sharing my very final set of cards, created for the #finishedinfeb challenge with my pre-selected stash of product.

Here is the last set of two cards:

For the very last card (the one on the right) I cheated just a tag and used embossing powder instead of stamp ink and also added a tiny bit of embossing enamel to the background. I tried very hard to use only the products chosen, but by the last card I just could not resist adding that tiny touch of mixed media look.

And now to what is left!! I used up all the washi tape, all heart stickers, all puffy stickers and all premade tags. I have only 3 pieces of PL cards left, a few banners (mostly because my StazOn dried up and I could not stamp the shiny surface with a regular stamp ink, otherwise I would have used them more). AND I used almost all of the Studio Calico paper – only 3 sheets of paper left in the end. What´s left is plenty of the Carta Bella paper, because there is quite much inside such a paper pack. It´s amazing that his tiny pack of product produced a total of 25 cards in one month!!! Here is what I am left with after this challenge:

When I started this challenge, I figured I´d do maybe 5-6 cards and look where I am now! 25 clean and simple cards done in one month with this tiny product stash (see photo below)!

I am pretty proud of myself and would like to say a big thank you to Donna for bringing this challenge to life! I have enjoyed doing it and noticed that I work really well, when I set myself daily challenges/goals. This will for sure not be my last challenge to myself. I have had a great time doing it! Done good stash busting, filled my card box up and enjoyed every minute of it.

Hope you enjoyed seeing these posts and watch me do CAS cards!!! Let´s see what I do next. I think I need a new challenge :).

Wishing you all a fabulous Sunday and a good start into March! Only approximately two weeks to go and we have been dealing with Covid for a WHOLE YEAR now. A full year! And who knows how long this will continue.. how are you guys doing? I am slowly but surely turning into a grumpy person ;-). I think I´ve just reached that point of emotional scale that grumpyness is my fave option. Trying to be cheerful and positive is not on my list anymore ;-). I just wish there would be something positive to look forward to, that might lift the spirits. But when there is no visible end to a situation, how do you keep positive?

Anyways, thank goodness there is crafting. I´d go nuts without it! Hoping you guys are coping better!!

#finishedinfeb – card set 10

Hello and happy Friday! Today I´m sharing my second to last set of cards that I created for the #finishedinfeb challenge, called to life by Donna.

This is the product pack I pre-selected for the challenge and I´ve been working with it throughout the whole month.

This is my card set, created with the product from the above set:

This is already a pretty simple (even for clean and simple style) set of of cards. I am slowly running out of embellishments an it´s become harder to create the cards. Washi tape is almost gone by now, also the puffy stickers, the hearts and the circles. I still have plenty of patterned paper, but on it´s own (as I don´t want to add too much product and also don´t want to use die cut dies etc. here at all) it´s becoming harder to add variety to cards at this point. So far it´s a total of 23 cards!!!

Do come back on Sunday, when I post my final post :). Wishing you all a fabulous weekend!!

#finishedinfeb – card set 9

Hi there! Today I´m quickly posting the 9th set of cards, created using the #finishedinfeb pre-selected product pack for a challenge, that Donna called into life.

This is set 9:

It´s pretty much the same things done like on the previous sets, too. Stamping, puffy stickers, PL cards, background paper and such.

I really like how the red card turned out – I am totally in love with the lip-puffy-stickers :). They look so much fun on each card and add such a nice detail. Needless to say that I´ve almost used them up already. 🙂

For the second card I cut a stamp up in pieces to be able to stamp the sentiment one below the other. I´ve enjoyed this challenge so much and have such a big pile of cards done so far! And still a few days (and a bit of a stash to go). See you on Sunday laterst, when I´ll share what is left of my pack! 🙂

Wishing you all a great evening,

#finishedinfeb – Card Set 8

Hello and happy Wednesday! For today´s card share I´ve got another set of #finishedinfeb challenge cards to share. This challenge was called to life by Donna and I´ve been using my pre-selected stash very bravely so far without adding almost any additional product to my cards. And I´ve created so many cards so far!

For today´s share I´ve again used the premade tags with some patterned paper on the background and a piece of twine. The twine was not included into my stash. So using it was an exception. For the second card I used some of the sticker hearts, background paper and a journaling card, all from my original product pack. And the puffy stickers and the stamping also.

For the last card I´ve again used two journaling cards, a die cut banner and some stamping. All from my pack again. And all the cards are again clean and simple style – why? because it´s easy to do with this set of product and that way I can go a long way with the same stash.

I really like the happy colours on these cards. I am totally in love with yellow and like to combine it with pink. Yellow if one of my all time face colours, because it immediately makes me happy. I hope to squeeze in a few more cards still and then in the end I´ll show you what is left :). So do come back latest on Sunday.

#finishedinfeb – Card Set 7

Hello and happy Monday! Today I´m again stopping by to share yet another set of cards, created with my #finishedinfeb product stash for a challenge, called to life by Donna. For all of the card that I´ve created for this challenge, I´ve used a pre-selected product stash and tried to keep almost solely to that stash.

So far that plan has worked out pretty well! For these cards I used some of the journaling cards in my pre-selected stash, then added the patterned papers on the back and some stamping with the stamps from the product pack. Very clean and simpe again, but works really well, because of the patterned paper on the background.

They too, were in the pack. One paper pack is by Carta Bella and the other one is by Studio Calico. Both perfect small sizes for cardmaking. And the go SUCH A LONG WAY!!! I really like the tropical feel of these birthday cards :).

So there is still at least one set to go for sure. And I still have a couple of days! I cannot imagine how many it´s already been this month! Awesome! I´ve really enjoyed doing this challenge and I´ve notices that PLANNED STRUCTURE really makes me create even more. So I am for sure going to challenge myself more often in the future!

Wishing you all a great week!
