Welcome Baby Boy

Hello and happy Monday! Today I am interrupting the Christmas card share posts with a cute baby boy card.

I was asked to create a baby boy card for work and this is what I came up with.

I´ ve used light blue alpha stickers to create the sentiment and embossing folders to make the polka dot background paper. The ribbon is from my older stash and the hippo is die cut with a Elizabeth Craft Designs die cut die, as are the scalloped and plain circles.

For coloring details on the hippo I´ ve used my Swiss Color colored pencils as well as Neocolor II crayons. On the scallop circle I used liquid pearls to add some detail.

A clean and simple, yet cute baby boy card resulted from that. I really like this tiny hippo die cut die very much and it is so perfect for baby cards! Hope you liked the inspo!!
Take care,

Forever and always – Dani Peuss

Hello lovelies and happy Thursday! Today I am stopping by to share yet another wedding card with you. This time in pink tones. This card too, has a gift card pocket inside it.

I again used the Dani Peuss July kit papers for this card. The pink paper on the backgroud is from the kit. The other papers are from my own stash and older, but since the colours worked so well together, I used them.

The die cutting is again done using Elizabeth Craft Designs dies and the chipboard piece is by Wycinanka.

I also added some silver peel-off stickers to the background for additional detail and layered everything else on top of them. I also sneaked in some flower stickers from my older stash which also worked so well with the rest. I love adding and combining old with the new (also fits the wedding theme very well ;-)..) to my cards.

Inside the card there is plenty of room for wishes and the gift card. As you can see the Dani Peuss kit papers go a long way on a slimline card.

I also added plenty of half pearls to the card, because they make the card even more festive. I just hope now that the recipients will love the card.

Here is also a quick flip-thru video on the 3 recent cards I created – hope you like it:

Hope you liked what I shared and got inspired by it! I enjoy making slimline cards so much at the moment. I haven´ t done a mixed media card in a while – I wonder if I could still do one ;-). But I think it is very healthy to change the routine from time to time – otherwise it will all get boring.

Have a great Friday and see you during the weekend again with some more project shares.

To have and to hold – Dani Peuss

Hello lovelies! Today I am sharing another slimline card with a gift card pocket inside. This time it is a wedding card.

On the front I have used a green paper from the Dani Peuss July Kit as the card background. These papers have the perfect size for slimline cards, by the way. If you tilt the paper, you have enough material to fill in 3 pages of the card (see how I used the same paper inside the card in the photos later).

For decoration I used some older stickers and papers, as well as Wycinanka chipboards, from my older stash. The die cut dies I have used here are by Elizabeth Craft Designs. I have plenty of layers on top of each other here to create a really romantic cluster of leaves, pearls, ribbons and stickers.

Inside the card I created a pocket on the left side to place in a gift card or even money and punched the border with a Martha Stewart border punch. Remember how we used to collect these quie a few years ago? I have been trying to incorporate old product and “old” tools (do tools get old/go out of fashion?) into my recent cards. They still work like a dream and if the embellishments match too, why not use them?

The cream toned paper is by Prima Marketing and also from my older stash, but as the color worked togehter so well, I used it here.

I really like how this card turned out. It is festive for sure, so I am hoping the recipients will like it too.

See you soon again with another wedding card share!

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 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
