Clean and simple Christmas cards

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I´m up with another set of Christmas cards, this time in clean and simple style. I´ve used some of the gorgeous STAMPlorations stencils on these to create the patterns.

See? Very simple and easy card ideas! I took a piece of red patterned paper (leftover piece that was on my table ;-)..) and placed the stencils on top. Then I took a blender brush and applied the golden Nuvo Mousse thru the stencil on top. After the mousse was dry, I outlined the patterns with white to make them better stand out from the background.

For the third card I used Ivory Coast Nuvo Crackle Mousse thru a STAMPlorations stencil. As a base I used a dark red cardstock piece. For decor I added some felt and wooden stars and into the middle I added a stamped sentiment. Easy peasy!

On the other cards I just added little details, like a STAMPlorations clear sticker and a wooden reindeer piece (who has a Nuvo Vintage Drop red nose, by the way ;-)..). For the other cards I just added a in brown stamped Christmas sentiment on a piece of white cardstock and inked the edges a little to give it a vintage look. The star is wood veneer combined with a star sticker. So only very little details, lots of red and a little gold with white. Very christmassy in my opinion!

Christmas card set

Hello and happy Sunday! Today I´m again stopping by to share a set of Christmas cards, created using the gorgeous Sweetest Christmas collection papers by Mintay Papers. I love this collection! Here is what I made this time:

I did some fussy cutting for these cards too, by the way. And since the papers are so very sweet on their own, I didn´need to (and also didn´t want to) add much. Just some Nuvo Drops and stamped sentiments, that´s it!

I don´t know if you can see it, but there are some key lime clear drops here and there on the green parts to add dimension and texture. And on the white areas I´ve added some snow mimicing details with white glitter drops. Also some pink glitter drops were added very randomly for additional sparkle onto the poinsettia leaves.

I also added some brown Distress Ink around the edges of one card, it immediately gave the card a more vintagey look. Love that effect on this paper! And the cards still are very flat so sending them on their way will not be too expensive. Dimensional cards tend to be expensive when mailing them and also rather easy get damaged on the way. No such problems with these ones 🙂 !

Wishing you a great start into your week! We are still on lockdown here in Austria. How are you holding up at your end, lovelies? Some days I´m ok with everything and other days, well, let´s just say, are not that great. Hope everything is ok at your end, peeps!!!

Take care,

Merry Christmas card

Hello and happy Saturday! Today I´m again stopping by to share a Crhistmas card with you. This time created in very classic color combination: blue, red and white. I love this color combination on winter cards!

To create the background I used some blue Distress Ink. Next I placed the Winter Flowers stencil on top of that blue inked piece and applied Nuvo Expanding Mousse (worn linen) thru the stencil onto the surface and heat set it to create a 3D distressed effect.

Then I inked an additional piece of paper in blue and added a stamped sentiment. For finishing touches I added some liquid drops in red. All in all a very easy to do card, but thru the 3D mousse effect it has a nice texture and depth to it.

Wishing you all a lovely weekend! We are one week down form our second lockdown here in Austria.

Joy card

Hello and happy Thursday!!! Today I´m on the mood for sharing a Christmas card with you again. This time with plenty of sparkle :). I used a STAMPlorations slimline stencil with Tonic Studios Nuvo Glitter Paste to create the background.

As a base for that I used a piece of red cardstock which creates a really nice contrast to the background with the glitter. On the sides I have sand toned velvet ribbon from my older product stash. Still going strong with stash busting here :).

To finish the card off I added some fussy cut pieces from Canvas Corp. papers I had left over from my design team gig from a few years back. The papers themselves are very modern, but still work really well with the velvet and the glitter and together, funny enough, create a really cool vintage looking card.

I´ll leave you with this card today, but be sure to come and visit my blog tomorrow, because I am part of the 6th annual STAMPlorations Giving Thanks blog hop that goes live tomorrow!! So don´t miss that one!! See you tomorrow!! Also, a friendly reminder on the ongoing Christmas special sale at STAMPlorations:

See you tomorrow! Have a great day!

Joy to the world

Hello everyone and happy Monday! Today I´m again filling my stash busting goals with this card! I´ve got a whole sheet of snowflake stickers used on this one. Yay!!

For the background I used my snowflake stencil that had some residue ink on it, so I misted it and pressed the ink onto a piece of white paper. You can barely recognize the pattern here and there, but I still really like the subtle look. After adding the STAMPlorations clear sticker sentiment and the super old snowflake stickers from my stash (yay to stash busting again!), the card turned out pretty nice.

That´s all for today! How are you getting along with Christmas cards this year? I have a few made, but I think they will not be enough, so I need to make a few more still.

Hoping your day is lovely!!! We are again on lockdown light in Austria and it´s starting to get to me. I miss my people! I´ve been really good the whole time so far since March, keeping the circles very small and all, but I miss seeing friends and loved ones. And who knows how long this will go on!! I think the winter time makes it even harder. Going to be along wait until spring arrives and we can at least enjoy our garden again, if nothing else.

Hoping everything is good at your end during this crazy time. Take care and stay safe!
