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 Thursday! I am slowly starting to add cards to my Christmas card stack. It´s already September, so I better start make them. This one is done using the Klartext stamp set called „Mixed Media Weihnachten“.
I chose a blue patterned paper with stars as my background piece and added stamped and embossed white details to the background. The trees are embossed in 3 various pastel embossing powder tones onto a dark green patterned apper and then fussy cut. For finishing touches I added a heat embossed sentiment in white and silver puffy stars to the top.
I really like the contrast on this card. The blue background just makes so many colours „pop“! Have you started your Christmas card creating marathon yet?
Wishing you a FABULOUS end of the week!! xxx, Sanna
Hello and happy Tuesday! Today´s share is yet another Klartext stamp based card. I have always loved using stamps in my projects and Klartext stamps were one of the first ones I used. They just seem to speak „my language“, if you know what I mean. I always find a perfect sentiment for a project from my Klartext stamp selection.
For this card the sentiment says: „Seen from the moon, the whole thing doesn´t play that big of a role“. I used the moon phase stamp strip with Distress Oxides in various colours repeatedly to create the background and then did a focal point using the sentiment mentioned before with white embossing powder on vellum. The stamp set is called „moon„, by the way.
On the background I have some more Studio Tekturek papers and for decor I took some silver puffy stickers.
I am having so much fun using German stamp sentiments for a change and creating these CAS cards. Wishing you a fabulous day! xxx, Sanna
Hello and happy Monday! Here is one more stash-busting-project based card. I hope you are not getting tired of these? I love making them and discovering, how quite old produkt works together with newer ones. And the funny thing is, they REALLY do! Even the colours match! How amazing is that!??
For this card I again used the Pink Paislee Truly Grateful tiny 2×2 inch paper pads to create the „quilt-style“ background. The size is perfect for a card background!
And for decor I used really quite old embellishments (chipboard flowers etc.). These are mostly by Basic Grey (I think) and Cosmo Cricket and go quite a long time back in time. At least 10 years if not longer…
For additional decor I added hand drawn faux stitching and a stamped sentiment from my Stampin´Up! stamp collection. That´s the whole magic behind this card. And it´s still quite flat, so it should be not problem to mail it to someone.
I hope your week got a good start and you get to enjoy summer abit. I have a few things planned, crafty wise, but this time it´s more home improvement type of crafting. I am planning on painting a room and decorating it totally new. I might even add a few photos during the process to my blog, if you are interested. So let me know :). xxx, Sanna
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.
