Hello and happy Wednesday! Today´ s share is a quick and easy-to-do card. I have been taking a little pause from the blog because of a) I had a flue and b) I had been organizing my crafty space. But today I´ m stopping by to share something I created from found scraps and old bits + a new stamped image.
I spent two days just organizing my area and boy did I find lots of product I had totally forgotten I even had!!! And the clean-up was LONG DUE! I found this leftover piece of a stencil print and it was so cute I could not throw it away. So I did a birthday card instead!
In the middle I have a Sue Smith stamp (by Elizabeth Craft Designs) that I stamped with black ink and then fussy cut and adhered on place with 3D-foam pieces. Some old (who remembers these still?) rhinestone swirls for decor and the card was done!
I really like the simplicity of this card. Hope your day was a good one!! See you soon again – I might have a few more destash-cards to share the next days :).
Hello and happy Monday! Today I´ m sharing a another clean and simple card, created with Klartext stamps. For this one I used the “Folg deinem Herz” stamp set with the super cute Summer Vibes P13 papers.
One of the papers had these cute stripes in pastel tones that exactly fit the width of the stamp sentiment, so I used it to my advantage and added a stamped and embossed sentiment in every second line with a matching embossing ink tone.
It really made the backgroud so much fun and also interesting for the card recipient. I hope it makes them smile, when they read the words. For a focal point I chose two ephemera pieces from the Summer Vibes collection and added some stamping to the signs as well. There I used Klartext “Moon” and “Handgemacht” stamp set with black stamp ink. In the end I just adhered everything on place and the card was done. Easy!
Wishing you a good start into the new week!! xxx, Sanna
Hello and happy Sunday! For today´ s project share I have created another card – this time for a birthday – using the Dani Peuss Klartext stamps. This one is called “Pfingstrosen” and it is a lovely flower set.
I took a piece of white paper, inked it with Distress Inks in two blue tones and added water droplets to the background to create some pattern to the colour. Next I stamped and heat embossed the flowers to the backround paper with white heat embossing powder. After that I added embossing enamel to some areas. For the sentiment I wripped a piece of vellum and heat embossed the birthday sentiment with gold embossing powder using the Klartext “Folg deinem Herzen” stamp set.
For finishing touches I added a few golden enamel dots. This adds nice detail and a little additional texture to the card, but does not make it too bulky for shipping.
That´ s it for today! See you again tomorrow with anothr project share. Enjoy your Sunday,
Hello and happy Friday!! Today I have a day off from work – yay!!! What better way to end a week :). I have so been looking forward to this weekend and next week as I was hoping to be able to see some relatives and celebrate my special big day next week, but then Covid happened and there went all the nice plans down the drain.
So, oh well, instead of preparing a birthday party, I have been crafting cards. I mean, you only turn 50 once, right? And I was not going to hide somewhere, I was going to celebrate. My dad passed away suddenly with only 52, so the number 50 has a deeper meaning to me. Imagine you only had two years left from there? So I´ve decided to celebrate every single birthday from now own. You never know which one is going to be the last.
And now there´s Covid.. so much for the celebration. Oh well, I guess this year is just not going to get better, no matter what. So I have been crafting instead. I do love yellow, so I´ve been happily incorporating it to my work as much a possible! And this card has some fresh yellow-white stripes! I so love the background. And the centerpiece of this card is a cute owl gifted to my by my lovely friend, Lizzy! Thank you! It found a perfect spot on this card :).
I´m wishing you all an amazing weekend!! Hope everything is ok at your end! xxx, Sanna
Hello everyone and happy Saturday! Today´s share is a birthday card, created using mainly Elizabeth Craft Designs products as well as some very old flower paper from my older stash.
I am still stash busting, as you can see :). And here is the finished card:
I first cut the blue patterned paper (by Elizabeth Craft Designs) in size and then I attached some Clear Double Sided Adhesive onto the green patterned paper (from my own old stash of papers) and die cut the Bubbles. After die cutting, I adhered them onto the blue paper and cut any residue off.
Then I die cut the “leaves” with the Budding Florals die from an old Basic Grey paper (again from my very old paper stash) and after fussy cutting the other leaves and roses, arranged everything onto the card and adhered them on place. A birthday sentiment to finish the card off and everything was done. I really like the look of this card. The flowers work really well with the bubble pattern. And I love the turquoise paper so much.
Here´s to a lovely weekend! Hope you are all doing fine!! xxx, Sanna
