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

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,

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,

Zur Firmung – Dani Peuss

Hall ihr Lieben! Heute zeige ich Euch eine weitere Gutscheinkarte, die ich kürzlich gestaltet habe. Dieses Mal für eine Firmung.

Für diese Karte habe ich die wunderschönen Papiere aus dem Dani Peuss Juni-Kit verwendet. Schließlich nur das Glitzerpapier, sowie das Papier, aus dem die Feder gestanzt wurden, stammen aus meinem eigenen Fundus.

Die die cut dies, die ich hier benutz habe, sind alle von Elizabeth Craft Designs. Die Drops auf der Karte sind von Tonic Studios (Nuvo Drops) und der Twine ist von Doodlebug Designs.

Für die Innenseite der Karte habe ich das gleiche Papier verwendet und aus dem “Feder-Papier” habe ich noch eine kleine Tasche für die Gutscheinkarte/für den Geldschein gebastelt.

Diese Karte ist wieder ein gutes Beispiel (meiner Meinung nach), dass man die Kitpapiere total von der Thema “Reise” zweckentfremden kann. Himmel passt doch auch perfekt für die Thema “Firmung”.

Auf jedem Fall war die Empfängering dieser Karte sehr zufrieden – was will man mehr!! Und diese Karte ist, falls noch nicht erwähnt, auch im Slimline-Format gemacht.

Ich hoffe wieder Euch etwas inspirieren haben zu können. Weitere Juni-Kit-Werke gibt es wieder in Kürze :).

Bleibt schön kreativ,
xxx, Sanna

Birthday card

Hello everyone! I am again combining old with new for cards. On this particular card I used the Dani Peuss May Paper-Add-On-Kit papers and a Klartext stamp with a stamped image I received in a swap for at least 15 years ago. Yes, I have been crafting for so long ;-).

So good to finally find the perfect spot for this cute image. And the perfect sentiment to go with it. The background paper is from the kit (a starry sky) and the stamp image is from the set “So viele Kerzen”. That translates to “so many candles” which perfectly matches her facial expression :).

I again used a slimline card format, because it looks more festive in my opinion and also gives enough space for the stamped image to “shine”.

Someone, who understands a joke/can laught at themselves, will receive this card. Too bad I don´ t know by whom the stamp image is. *EDIT* I did some background work and found the stamp!!! Yay!!! It´ s available at Viva Las Vega Stamps (linked in the product list, just in case you are interested). Here is a peek into the May paper add-on kit once more:

This is all for today, lovelies! Hope you enjoyed what I shared! See you soon, xxx, Sanna
