Just a little something!

Hello and happy Tuesday! Today I´m again sharing a card from my personal stash busting challenge. This one is a very clean and simple one, but I have a particular couple in my mind, who will receive this card at some point (they love plants).

I´ve used solely papers and ephemera from my The Wild Hare Kits design team time residue kits for this card.

I cut everything in size, arranged them onto the cardbase and adhered the pieces on place. Done! Very easy, very fast, but still looks lovely. Imagine you are a huge plant lover and you get this card with a gift card for a plant store inside. I think it´s going to be a good surprise gift.

I´ve done quite a few cards already, but I really don´t notice any big changes in my stash so far. *LOL*! Therefore I cannot stress enough: “only buy what you can use!”. Don´t hoard! I know it is tempting and it feels good to have all the pretty things around you, but do you really need them all at once? Also, only buy as much media as you are currently able to use. Why? Because they turn old too, dry out and you´ve basically trown your money away.

Wishing you a great week!

Full of Joy!

Hello everyone and happy Thursday! Today I´m again stopping by with another stash-busting card project. The bits and bobs on this card are all from my time at the Wild Hare Kits design team. I love that ephemera and the lovely flower paper.

And the little cutie snail just adds so much more cuteness to the card which is so very easy to make. Just add the flower paper to a card base and layer and arrange a cluster with various die cut pieces / ephemera on top. Add some faux stitching around the edges and that´s it!

A perfect fast and easy-to-do birthday card idea! I usually go the mixed media way with my cards and on the last ones I have added NONE. Sometimes it´s good to go out of ones comfort zone and challenge oneself with a totally different style. And like mentioned on my previous post, I am trying to seriously reduce my stash, so there will be paper dominated cards and other projects showing up on my blog from time to time. I´ll let you know, when I´ve managed to empty a box or a drawer.

I doubt it will happen any time soon ;-). Wishing you a great day and a good weekend :)! Happy summer and happy crafting!
