October Stencil Challenge Reminder – STAMPlorations

Hello everyne! It´s again time to remind you about this months Stencil Challenge at STAMPlorations!! There is still plenty of time to play along – hope you join the fun with us!!!

This is my reminder post project:

For this card I used Monika Skinners new Flexi Templates (Ovals here) with the new Slimline stencils designed by Shery. I first placed the ovals into the middle and inked around the edges with pink ink, then I placed the slimline stencil over everything else and added darker pink ink tone onto the pink areas thru the stencil.

After that I removed the oval template in the middle and placed the „edge“ piece of the oval template over the pink areas. This way I could ad orange to the middle without messing the colours. For finishing touches I misted the Slimline stencil with water and pressed it onto the orange inked oval and let water do it´s magic. You can see the pattern here and there on the background.

For finishing touches I added some stamping with the STAMPlorations Noteworthy stamp set and then went on adding some Nuvo Drops and paper flowers and buttons from my older stash.

Now again be sure to check out the fabulous project the other DT girls designed for your inspiration and then join the fun :). Hope you see you at STAMPlorations blog!

Happy stenciling,
xxx, Sanna

Groovy

Hello and happy (groovy?) Monday!! I missed WCMD (World Card Making Day), but hey, I actually DID make cards that day. Only, that the projects will be shared to a later date :-D! So to do some belated WCMD celebrating, I´m sharing a fun card I created past weekend. It just makes me smile and who does not need a smile on a Monday?!

I just love how this card turned out. It´s nothing complicated, really, but it´s the look on his face with the red nose enamel dot and the sentiment „groovy“ that brings a wide grin on my face. Hope it does on yours too!!?

So it´s again Monday and it´s going to be another tough week, but I hope to bring some happiness and joy to you with this card. I love the colours too. The background is from a a Dina Wakley Collage Collective book and the stenciling is done with one of my stencil designs „Winter Flowers“ using a Nuvo Embellishment Mousse in pink. The man is from people sets by Tim Holtz and the sentiment is written by my lovely friend Lizzy. And the enamel dot is my older stash.

Can´t wait to give this card to someone special! And I need to mention here that I definitely do need a day between Sunday and Monday. It always seems that the weekends are too short, by the time I have got my energy levels up for all kinds of fun stuff, it´s again Sunday and time is running out.. Anyone else with me on this?

Hope you have a great week with lots of crafty time, beautiful fall weather (hopefully sunshine!) and nice long walks between all the work crazy.

Happy crafting,

4th Sanna Lippert Designs stencil reveal – STAMPlorations

Hello everyone, it´s Sanna here today with a special share. I am so excited to be able to share my 4th set of stencil designs with you!! A huge thank you to Shery for making all this possible and believing in me and my designs.  Without her, none of this would be possible. So thank you again, Shery! I am so happy to be part of the STAMPlorations family.

Early this spring (before the pandemic hit the world) I had this set ready for a release, but then the pandemic happened and everything got postponed abit. But better late than never! So today I´m happy to be able to share a little video with all of you, featuring the new designs. I wanted to do this earlier, but since shipping was not working between the US and Europe at all, it was not possible unti now. One parcel was even retourned back to Shery and never reached me. Finally, a few weeks ago the stencils arrived, so I am now able to share some stencil goodness with you. 

And to give you a better idea on the new designs, I´ve recorded a video featuring every single design. I hope you enjoy it!

I have been having so much fun with the stencils, so before I leave you today, I would like to show you just a few examples I created.

Also, be sure to follow the stencil challenges, as I will be sharing more projects, created using the new stencil line, throughout this fall with you. I would love to hear what you think about the new stencils, so leave a comment over at the STAMPLORATIONS BLOG to the original post and tell which is your favorite and what you would use it for, it might just be, that you can win your favorite stencil 😉 !!! 

Wishing you all a fabulous day and happy stenciling!
Stay safe and take care,
Sanna

Happy Birthday Nancy!!!

Happy Friday!! Today I´m sharing a special post with you. A fellow DT member, the ever so lovely Nancy has a very special birthday and I am joining her birthday celebration linky party with this card.

This linky party is organized by Stamping with Loll! Thanks for the heads up Loll and Monika!! And now to the birthday girl herself:

Dear Nancy!! With this card I am wishing you lots of happiness, laughter, health and many, many amazing moments to come! You have a special place in my heart as you love stencils at least as much as I do. You know I love your artworks so much. I am so honoted and happy to be able to congratulate you this way. Have the happiest of day and I hope you get spoiled by your loved ones (hope you can party abit despite the pandemic circumstances..). Sending you lots of love,
xxx, Sanna

This card was done using lovely STAMPlorations products, well, because Nancy is a DT colleague at STAMPlorations, so she´d be expecting nothing less, I assume ;-). Also do read Loll´s blog post, because there will be many more people joining in on her celebration – you could even join in yourself (read more on Loll´s blog!!)

It´s a strange time to have a special birthday (I know, because I just had mine), so I think this linky party, organized by Loll, is a fabulous idea!! Thanks for organizing this, Loll!

All the best,
Sanna

Art journal page

Hello and happy Friday!!! Yay to weekend!!! I haven´t been sharing any art journal pages in a while here, so today I´m doing so. This one is in a big Dylusions journal and created using Dina Wakley paints and Scribble Sticks as well as her Collage Collective book.

I´ve first done a stencil pattern with leftover paint onto the background (using my Onions in Raws stencil). Next I used a huge brush to add the blue swirlish pattern to the page. Then I added some diluted magenta paint into the middle. After that I drew circles with Scribble Sticks in orange and green.

After that I grabbed a Viva Las VegaStamp and stamped the pattern with black ink. Then I added some asemic writing (thanks to Tina I figured out how to do that! It´s my first try, so bare with me…) to the page and topped everything off with fussy cut Collage Collective book bits.

That´s it! I like how this page turned out. Especially the fact that I now know how to do asemic writing. It still needs plenty of practise, but I kind like doing it, so it will be a plesure practising.

Happy weekend, lovelies!!!
