40th birthday card

Hello and happy Thursday! Here is a card I recently created:

I wanted to play with the plain white background of the card base and took out some markers in green, orange and blue and drew the flowers onto the background. They are abstract on purpose :). I was not trying to create realistic flowers :). On top of that I stamped the sentiment celebrate with a black stamp ink.

As a centerpiece I added a big paper flowers (from way back in the day) and some Thickers in blue. It´s a simple, but fun birthday card. I haven´t done cards in a looong time, so it was about time that I sat down and played a little.

Have a great Thursday!!

Birthday card

Hello and happy Monday! Here is a slimline card share for a change.

I did this card for a colleagues 60th birthday. I´ve used papers by Canvas Corp Brands and Bo Bunny and some of the ephemera are by Graphic 45.

As the recipient of this card is a man, I tried to do a more classical, masculine type of card. I hope he will like it!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look! I hope I could inspire a little with this card.

Creative Midsummer Challenge – Day 7

Hello and happy Thursday! Here is another card I made for the Creative Midsummer Challenge. Day 7 challenge theme was “lace”.

I used lots of products from my old stash on this card. I got another “OPR” (old product rediscovered) project done and dusted with this card. The lace is in the middle – also from my old stash.

This challenge has been so fun to do, because in the end I will have plenty of new cards for my card box. If you don´t know, I have a big box of finished cards ready for different occations – you never know when you need one :).

Have a great day!

You are so old card – SoSS Challenge #227

Hello and happy Sunday! Today I am stopping by to share a card that was inspired by a fellow crafter´ s Instagram share. Her card just hit all my snarky buttons :). That then inspired me to join their vintage challenge and here we are:

Inspired by her card and the giggles it gave me, I grabbed a few things from my older stash (ha! see how I also got another OPR-Project done and dusted! – very happy about that) and created a vintage styled, snarky birthday card.

I used older 7DotsStudio papers on the background, then added a layer of white Distress Paint with a palette knife and some brown crayon splatters on top. A vintage ribbon adds to the vintage feeling of the card, too. Then to finish the vintage feel off, I of course used a paper doll by Tim Holtz. And I also had a stamp set in my older stash (by Krumspring stamps) to create the snarky sentiment.

I hope my card ticks all the boxes required. I sure had a fun time creating this card. And it will be so much fun to give it to someony who understands a bit of snarkiness :).

Here is the link to the challenge page and their Challenge #227, by the way.

I haven´ t joined a challenge in AGES!!!! But it was really very much fun to play along. Might do that more again, because it is a good way to use up product too. So that way my 2023 personal challenge of “old product rediscovered” also would proceed nicely.

Thanks for stopping by. Wishing you a fun Sunday!

Supplies (also some alternatives shared, due to old product used):

Birthday card

Hello and happy Sunday! Today I am stopping by to share a 18th birthday card with you. This one will be for a boy and again has a little pocket inside it for adding a gift card/money into.

I used various older papers from my own stash and combined them with similar colored Sassafras alpha stickers.

In addition I used some older (from my Studio Calico subscription times) big numbers with 3D-foam on top. Some old Basic Grey silver stars were added to the card, too.

Inside the card I used a Amy Tangerine paper (also older) and a Martha Stewart border punch to create a pocket for the gift card/money to be added later. There is also enough space to add nice wishes to the birthday boy on the right side. The stamp used here is by Dani Peuss and called “So viele Kerzen” (=so many candles).

The same stamp set was also used for the sentiment on the front page of the card. A clean and simple and hopefully masculine enough card for a 18th birthday celebration.

Thanks for stopping by and see you soon again.
