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 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,
Hello and happy Thursday! I am slowly starting to add cards to my Christmas card stack. It´s already September, so I better start make them. This one is done using the Klartext stamp set called „Mixed Media Weihnachten“.
I chose a blue patterned paper with stars as my background piece and added stamped and embossed white details to the background. The trees are embossed in 3 various pastel embossing powder tones onto a dark green patterned apper and then fussy cut. For finishing touches I added a heat embossed sentiment in white and silver puffy stars to the top.
I really like the contrast on this card. The blue background just makes so many colours „pop“! Have you started your Christmas card creating marathon yet?
Wishing you a FABULOUS end of the week!! xxx, Sanna
Hello and happy mid week! I hope your week is going along fine? I have another clean and simple card share for today. I´ve again used some of the Klartext stamps (by Dani Peuss) on this card.
This time I combined the stamps with Nuvo Shimmer Powders and white embossing powder to create the centerpiece for my card. On the background I´ve got some lovely P13 papers and a tiny hedgehog from my older stash, combined with yet another heat embossed, stamped sentiment from another Klartext stamp set (see supply list for details).
I really like how the shimmer powder background makes the sentiment piece pop! And it makes for a perfect thank you-card for a dear friend too. You might be wondering, why I jump from totally crazy, mixed media frenzy to cards and projects like these? Well, it is just what I am. For different areas of crafting I just seem to prefer different types of styles. Sometimes it´s more clean and simple (but I still manage to add some mixed media here and there) and sometimes it´s just crazy colours, junk and media. That is just what I am and what I like.
I hope this card inspires you to play with your stamp sets and create a card or two! Have a wonderful, creative weekend! xxx, Sanna
