You can count on me – layout

Hello everyone and happy Monday! It´s again time to share another scrapbook layout tutorial with you today, created with Studio Forty product. I´ve again used the Moonchild collection and various clear stamps, word stickers and transparent stickers from the Studio Forty product range on this layout. Additionally I´ve created fun background details and colored some stamped images with Neocolor II watersoluble was crayons. I had so much fun creating this page!!! Here is my finished layout:

And here are some close-up photos:

I´ve used the Moonchild collection „I´m a dreamer“ & „Spirit of nature“ clear stamp sets to stamp the dreamcatchers for the layout. For coloring I used the previosly mentioned Neocolor II watersoluble crayons. They work really well even with the regular white cardstock and the water tank brush!! And the colors worked so well together with the beautiful Moonchild collection papers.

For more details about the layout and the product, also see the blog post over at the Studio Forty blog. If you are interested on the product I´ve used on this page, see the end of this blog post for a full material list with direct links. If a product is not available/linkable, then I always try to add a similar alternative to the link list.

This collection has inspired me so much that I´ve created a second video tutorial for you guys to watch. I hope you enjoy it and get inspired to scrap some yourself!!! Here is the video:

Now be sure to hop over to the Studio Forty blog for even more inspiration – my design team colleagues have created beautiful projects that you should definitely take a look at too! Stay tuned for more tutorial posts next month!! See you then!

Happy scrapping,

ps. there might be one more small additional project coming up tomorrow, just in case you are interested, come back tomorrow evening :). See you!

Quick birthday cards – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello everyone and happy Tuesday! Who does not know the situation, when you suddenly need a nice birthday card, but have nothing ready? And you really don´t want to buy one from the store, as you can create ones yourself too :-). How about a card with bold cardstock strips on white background? This is what I came up with when I needed to create two birthday cards really quickly:

Sanna Lippert - die cut strip birthday card This is how the cards came together:

Sanna Lippert - die cut strip birthday cardStep 1: Pick a total of 12 Soft Finish Cardstock colors and cut paper strips in size of 1,5 x 17 cm out of them. I chose to use different colors for every single die cut strip, but you could also use only a color or two for a different look. Now adhere Clear Double Sided Adhesive on the back of all cardstock pieces before die cutting them. This will make adhering them on the card base much easier. Take the Bread Strings 1 die cut die and use the two straight dies to die cut 12 strips of cardstock. Keep both the positive and the negative pieces for the cards.

This makes the background more interesting for the eye. Cut the residue pieces off. You can use them on a future project like an ATC card of a present tag. This way nothing goes to waste.

Finally adhere the Happy Birthday sentiment on the bottom and decorate with puffy hearts, half pearls and black texture spray. This is what the finished cards look like:

Just imagine the variations you could create by changing the card base colors, maybe adding a few Silk Microfine Glitter strips in between or just doing a monochromatic card!! I think I need to try that next. Thanks for stopping by – hope you enjoyed this fast and easy card idea!

Happy crafting,
Sanna

Mum – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello there, everyone! Today I´d like to share with you a Mother´s Day card I created using mainly the Elizabeth Craft Designs products. This is how the card looks like:

Sanna LippertHere is a little step-by-step on how I created the card:

Sanna LippertFirst I took a piece of yellow cardstock and placed an Elizabeth Craft Designs stencil repeatedly over the paper and inked thru it with an orange Distress Ink tone.

Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertNext I cut a Garden Notes Grapewine Wreath Round image from a green patterned paper several times. After that I took a strip of Brusho colored watercolor paper and used an Anemone die cutting die to cut several flowers. Sanna LippertI then adhered the stenciled cardstock piece onto a white card base. After that I adhered the wreath and leave pieces onto the yellow background.

Sanna LippertAfter I had first built the flowers I glued them on their places and added some details with a pearl pen.

Sanna LippertSanna LippertFinally I used the Alphabet 2 – Lower Case die cut set and the Banners die cut set to cut the images and hung the banner with twine from one end of the wreath to the other. I attached small silver puffy dots on top at both ends and outlined the card edges with a matching toned marker. For the banner pieces I used the Through the Lens – Metal paper set.

Sanna LippertI hope you have enjoyed reading thru this little tutorial!!

Have fun creating,

ATC card, Vol. 4 – Canvas Corp Brands

Hello lovelies! This is my last ATC for the Canvas Corp Brands Creative Crew ATC swap. This one is a 1 of 1 set :-). I created it on white cardstock base.

Sanna LippertThen I added a smaller piece of white cardstock on top, but decorated it first. There is first of all some 7gypsies stamping (this stamp) with VersaMark and Ranger Silver embossing powder on the background. Then I´ve misted the piece with pink and green Glimmer Mist. Next I stamped some Finnabair butterflies onto the background with a black ink. Then I added some silver Creative Medium thru a stencil onto the background (yes, again a The Crafter´s Workshop stencil I used). After that I used a stapler to attach a piece of twine. Next to that there is some corrugated kraft cardstock which I inked a bit.

Sanna LippertAfter that I added black and white ink splatters, a stamped and colored sentiment and butterfly as well as a wood veneer arrow,finished of with a layer of Stickles. Sanna LippertI hope the recipient liked her ATC. It is a special one as there is only one single piece of this one ever made :). So now I am thru with the ones I created. Here are the ones I received (so far):

Sanna LippertThe upper one from left top corner until right lower corner: Nancy Wethington, Zinia Amoiridou, Nancy Hawes, Marie Heiderscheit & Susan Salyer.

Sanna LippertThe second set from top left corner until the low right corner: Nadine Carlier, Barb Housner, Jorunn Langås Andreassen, Tamara Dinius, Tracy Sagriff. I adore every single one!!! <3

Sanna LIppertAnd this is how I store my ATC´s at the moment. The pockets are the prefect size for ATCs. There is still space for the two missing ones, and two more. I´ve also added a few other ones there I received along the past years. There are from my scrappy friends Riikka Kovasin, Tina Walker and Kim from Australia. Sanna Lippert  I like the fact that I could add this ATC sheet into a photo album or PL album. BUT then on the other hand I am thinking of getting two shadow frames for these and hanging them all on my studio wall. Have not quite figured out which way I will go. I have quite a few pieces of lovely art from my crafty friends, so these would make a really nice addition to those. I will keep you posted when I decide!!!

*edit* here is a photo of the last two ATC cards I received from Peggy Lee Baker (top left) & Sheila Rumney (top right)!

Sanna Lippert*edit* …and I also received this lovely ATC from Canvas Corp Brands office! Love it!!!

Sanna LippertHappy crafting,

ps. thank you to every single one who sent me their lovely work! I really, truly cherish each and every one of them <3

Misted Christmas cards – Canvas Corp Brands

Happy Monday everyone! How about another set of Christmas cards? These again are fairly easy to create. You just need a piece of this patterned paper on ivory, a few of your favorite Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist tones, some burlap to go with the mists and finally some chipboard, a piece of twine, some Christmas sentiment stamps and a paper glue. And if you want, a few half pearls to finalize the „ornaments“.

Here is a finished set of cards:

Sanna LippertI first cut the patterned paper into a right size, then I misted the pieces with blue, green and brown Glimmer Mist.

Sanna LippertSanna LippertSanna LippertNext I added some white paint droplets onto the background. Then I cut the burlap (black, blue & green) to match the size of the chipboard ornaments (these are by the way by Wycinanka). I then first glued the piece of burlap down onto the card, then adhered the chipboard piece.

Sanna LippertSanna LippertNext I added the twine and painted some parts of the ornament with red glimmer mist. I also added a few red pearls here and there for additional decoration.

Sanna LippertSanna LippertFinally I just added a stamped sentiment on a banner (the banner is cut from ivory carstock). 

Sanna LippertSanna LippertOn some cards I used a white pen (Signo Uni-ball) for adding highligh instead of the red Glimmer Mist painted parts.

Sanna LippertNaturally you could also leave the paper as it is. Just adhere it down to a card base as it is and then add some chipboard elements over it. These can be plain or painted like on my last card. The paper is really lovely also as it is!

Hope you have enjoyed reading thru this post,
wishing you all a happy Holiday Season!!
