Celebrate shaker card – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello everyone! I experimented with a shaker card idea recently. For this card I combined the Basic Rectangle dies with the Flower Burst Background die by Elizabeth Craft Designs – creating a „shaker window with a pattern“.

I die cut several layers of frames first and then did one background die pattern from the same paper. All the steps are in the video, so for details, check it out at the end of this post :).

And for fillings behind the acetate layer I added plenty of confetti in various tones. I figured, this could be a Christmas card, because of the colours. And everyone loves a little confetti for a festive season (at least in a sealed environment, like inside a card :)…).

I love using the Elizabeth Craft Designs background dies so much. Joset does a great job designing them. And confetti can also be my friend, if it is not flying around everywhere, but instead closed safely inside a card :). So I´ve also officially started my Christmas card production of 2020 with this card then – it´s about time, it´s already mid October!!

Have a great weekend and happy crafting!

Metallic toned die cut cards – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello everyone and happy Thursday!! Today I´m back at Elizabeth Craft Designs blog with another guest design team member post. This card idea started from idea to use white Soft Finish Cardstock in a different way. Also, due to the pandemic weddings had to be postponed by many people this summer and are now slowly taking place, the need for wedding cards moved to fall. Thus the love theme today.

For this card idea I´ve used only the same dies and yet they all look so different. It´s because I´ve treated them with a metallic media. My starting point by each of these cards was the same; white Soft Finish Cardstock!

All 3 cards still look so different due to the color choices. The dies are the same, only the colours vary. And the background paper I´ve used for matting everything.

I´ve again recorded a step-by-step video for you to watch – hope you like the idea!

Be sure to check out the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog for written steps and more photos of all cards.

I hope you could inspire you today to see the versatility of plain white cardstock. There are so many ways to give it a different look and it´s always a great starting point for many projects.

Also I would like to note that hoarding various media is not a good idea. This happened to me recently when I opened one of my Nuvo Embellishment Mousses. They had ALMOST completely dried up! I was able to save a few, but also had to toss quite a few. So, take my word for it: use the product you buy. Use it before it get´s old! So these cards were also an opportunity to use up some of those mousses. You might be seeing other metallized projects showing up here on my blog – I learned my lesson and am for sure going to use the product now and not be sorry later :).

I´ll be back next month with another Elizabeth Craft Designs guest member project. Hope to see you then!!

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.

 (Amaranth)

 (Rainbows)

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

Good vibes only! – Studio Tekturek

Hello everybody and happy Tuesday! Today I´m again very excited to share my Studio Tekturek September project (and video) with you!! I really love how it turned out and totally adore the candy colours of the Strawberry Shake collection!!

This is the page I did! I had such a great time creating it. The colours might say summer, but I think they work so very well for many other themes and seasons too. Like everyday scrapbooking themes :)!

I´ve again recorded a video for you to watch. It shows the whole process from start to finish. I hope you enjoy watching it :).

Basically almost everything on this layout is from the Studio Tekturek Strawberry Shake collection, except for some embellishments and the Distress Inks, stamps, as well as the white paper.

I hope this layout inspires you to give Studio Tekturek a try. Follow their Facebook page for more details on where to buy their collections and see their Instagram site for more inspiration!

I will be back in a few days with another project that was inspired by this layout, so see you on Thursday again ;-)!!

Happy scrapping,

Break a leg – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello and happy Sunday!!! Today I´m again up over at Elizabeth Craft Designs blog with a clean and simple card that can actually be made in less than ten minutes. Here is what I did:

The idea to this card is actually kind of funny. I´ve had issues with my legs during the past year – more than I would have wanted to have.. The minute I saw the frog legs the sentence „break a leg“ (very ironic to me, as I managed to wrip my cruciate twice in a year) started „haunting“ me in my thoughts :). So I figured I should make a „break a leg“ card with the flog leg die. Said and done!

And it actually turned out exactly the way I had imagined in my mind. Often times there is a general idea and in the end it develops to something different. Not this time! And the Dymo typed sentence on top is the missing focal point that does the trick to this card. I think it´s quite funny the way it looks. I hope other people will also „get the joke“?

There is again a video to go with the card – hope you like it!!

This is my guest design team project for Elizabeth Craft Designs in September. I´ll be sharing another project in October again, so if you are interested in seeing what I made, do stop by again!

Happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna
