Distress Glitter ATC set – STAMPlorations

Hello there lovelies, another Stencil Sunday is here!! I hope you are enjoying the inspiration delivered by us STAMPlorations girls :). Every Sunday either all or part of the team share an inspirational project created using at least one STAMPlorations stencil. Today is my turn again and here is what I did:

This is how I created the ATCs. My starting point was a piece of plain white cardstock – everything in color is added details :).

Step 1: I cut the plain white cardstock into ATC sized pieces (2 1⁄2 by 3 1⁄2 inches (64 mm × 89 mm)) and added green and blue spray ink onto the background. Next I used a heat gun for drying the ink.

Step 2: Then I place a misted piece under the ARTplorations Square City stencil and adhered the stencil onto the working surface with washi tape. That keeps the pieces from moving around. Next I applied a layer of transparent texture paste thru the stencil with a palette knife onto the surface.

Step 3: For the first ATC I then poured loose Distress Glitter onto the wet texture paste surface and dabbed the residue off with my finger. I let the piece air dry. Using the glitter this way it will stick to the paste when dry and stay shiny.

Step 4: For the next two pieces I mixed the transparent texture paste and the Distress Glitter with a palette knife together and first then applied the paste onto the tag like explained on Step 2. When you use the Distress Glitter this way, it will not result in a soft and shiny surface. It is more a grainy texture with color than a shine surface. If you would use a regular glitter, the result would still stay shiny when dry. That is the difference between Distress and regular Glitter and this technique.

Step 5: I took a piece of patterned paper and a STAMPlorations Trendy Feathers 2 clear stamp set and stamped feathers onto the paper with black ink.

Step 6: Next I took a STAMPlorations Fond Expressions 2 clear stamp set and stamped a sentiment onto a piece of vanilla cardstock. I then fussy cut the stamped sentiments.

Step 7: Now all I needed to do was to decorate the ATC background. I adhered the feather, some pink yarn, a button and the sentiment onto the tag. You cannot see it here, but I also added some white ink splatters in the end for additional detail. Those can be seen on the finished ATC´s.

Hope you have enjoyed today´s Stencil Sunday inspiration by the design team girls!!! Remember you can also join in the fun with us by submitting your mixed media stencil project (any brand goes!!!) to the monthly challenge!!! Just remember, NO CARDS allowed :). For details, go HERE :).

I for myself am submitting this project to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog´s: Bit O´ Green challenge.

A set of Christmas cards – Canvas Corp Brands

Hello and Happy Friday everyone!!! Did you create handmade Christmas cards this year? I did. I sent a few on their way around the globe very early, as I participated on a Christmas Card Swap for the 4th year in a row. It has become such a fun tradition and I would not want to miss it for anything – if you are interested in joining, then look this group up over at Flickr!!

And then to my first set of cards. I´ve been creating with the lovely Christmas collections (Farmhouse Christmas & Jolly Christmas) from Canvas Corp Brands this year. Let´s start with a set of Farmhouse Christmas cards:

Sanna LippertSanna LippertI love the black and kraft  snowflake paper! It is so very pretty! Here is how I created these cards:

Sanna LippertSanna LippertThis was my starting point. Some brown Glimmer Glam, burlap, patterned paper and a few chipboard pieces. I glued the patterned paper onto white card bases first.

Sanna LippertNext I added droplets of White Metallic High Impact paint onto the patterned paper.

Sanna LippertSanna LippertSanna LippertNext I fussy cut some tags from the Farmhouse tags on Ivory paper and misted them with Verdigris, Turquoise Blue and Vanilla Breeze Glimmer Mist tones.

Sanna LippertWhile the paint and the misted pieces were drying, I painted the chipboard pieces with brown Glimmer Glam tone (Bon Bon).

Sanna LippertAnd while the Glimmer Glam was still wet, I added a thin layer of Rock Candy Distress Glitter over the painted pieces and let that dry. When the paint dries, the Glitter will stick to the surface – no glue needed. Then all I needed to do was to layer the burlap and the misted tags onto the patterned paper. I also added some twine, seam binding, pearls and some silver netting onto the cards. So easy and very fast to create!!

Sanna LippertSanna LippertSanna LippertSanna LippertSanna LIppertI hope you enjoyed this little step-by-step – do come back in a few days time to check out my next set of Christmas cards!!

Here is one more extra card – created in a similar way, I have just used various brown tones for coloring the door – the paints are from the Tattered Angels paints range 🙂

Scared yet? – The Crafter´s Workshop

Hi there, today I´d like to share a little start to finish layout video with you that I created for The Crafter´s Workshop. It has been a while since I last posted a video here, so I think it is proper to end this year with at least one more video :). I have used various 6×6 inch stencils on this layout and combined those with different embossing media. I also used the gorgeous 7 Dots Studio „Destination Unknown“ papers here. I was lucky to win a set for me and a scrappy friend earlier this year and I´ve been saving and admiring them for a while now. Sooo..time to finally open the collection and start using them :). Love the colours!! I hope you get inspired to try these techniques and create your own interesting background patterns!

And here is the finished layout – there are more detail photos to be seen on the video :)..:

Greetings of the season

Hi there, you would think that this is the busiest time of the year for me, and it actually is, so I wonder why I still find so much time to take part on challenges at the moment!!?? Veeeery strange..or could it have something to do with the fact that I have not even started considering about Christmas yet. And that thought immediately sets me in panic ;-)…

But what I have been doing is creating Christmas cards. And this particular one was inspired by the current Fusion (Sparkly Christmas) Card Challenge:

I based my card mainly on the sketch and added a few sparkly details (the snowflake is covered with Distress Glitter and the golden doilie adds a bit of sparkle too :). Other than that I just added a stamped sentiment and a few ink splatters onto the background. The chipboard piece is from my older stash. Destashing here again :).

Thanks for a nice inspiration, Fusion Card Challenge Blog :)!

Halloween layout – Pipilonias kreative Welt

Hello there, lovelies!!! Today I´d like to share with you a halloween layout :-). I wanted to enhance the scary photos with the colours and embellishments I chose. This is what I have used:

I first misted the background with 3 different ink spray colours (green, silver and grey). I then added some „oil slick“ splatters here and there and added some stamping as well as faux stitching. The little squares are 3D foam pads which I have treated with Distress Glitter. Other than that I have used plenty of halloween themed stickers, a few flair badges and some chipboard stars. The stars I colored with a Wink of Stella silver brush pen. The black alphas were made using a The Crafter´s Workshop stencil (Kasia´s letters).

So this is a pretty sinister page, but it kinda fits the Halloween theme, I think :).

Happy scrapping,
xoxo, Sanna

How I use grey chipboard pieces – Off the Rails Scrapbooking

Hello there, I´m here today with another post on how I try to use my stash up. This one is again made for Off The Rails Scrapbooking Blog. Now some of you probably also have these grey chipboard pieces stored in your stash. I have plenty :). So far I found it quite hard to use them, but not after I discovered Distress Glitter!!

Here are a few cards I created:

The chipboard pieces look much better now in my opinion :). And I am starting to notice a slight difference in my stash already!!!

Happy crafting,
Sanna

Christmas cards – Pipilonias kreative Welt

Hello lovelies! I am in the middle of the Christmas card production and here are two sets that were quite fast to do:

The first set of cards was really fast and easy to make. I just cut a journaling card or aDie-Cut and glued it with 3D-glue pads onto the backgroundpaper. After that I just added some glitter glue around the edges.

For the second 6 cards I just cut the Teresa-Collins-paper into right sized pieces and then used the matching Die-Cut pieces from the same collection for decorating. In addition some glitter glue, Fun Flock and Distress Glitter for detail. The circles, snowflakes, stars and hearts are from the Adhesive Value Kit by 3L. I covered them with either some flocking or Distress Glitter.

As you can see, my Xmas card workshop is coming along 🙂 :).

Happy crafting, Sanna

Materials:

Papers: Candy Cane Lane – BoBunny, Santa´s List – Teresa Collins; Glitter glue: Rayher Hobby, 3D foam glue pads, double sided tape; Stamp ink: Hero Arts – wet cement; Flocking: Stampendous; Distress Glitter: Ranger; Adhesive Value Kit: 3L 

Layers after layers – The Crafter´s Workshop

Hi there lovelies, time for another The Crafter´s Workshop post and today I´d like to share 3 fall cards in fall tones with you. I´ve also taken some step-by-step photos while creating the cards. Lets start with card no. 1:

sanna lippert

First I inked the white card base with Wild Honey Distress Ink and then added some water splatters onto the surface.

I then took the „Vineyard“ 12×12 inch stencil, placed in over the card and added some Barn Door and Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink thru the stencil onto the card.

SONY DSC

After that I used my all time favorite Hero Arts stamp Old Letter Writing and stamped with Forest Moss Distress Ink tone. This is how the card looks like:

SONY DSC

The sentiments are made with Tim Holtz Hashtag stamp set stamps and the butterflies are older product from my stash. Now onto the second card:

SONY DSC

I made this card background using the leftover ink that had stayed on the stencil after inking it for the first card. I first sprayed some water mist onto the inky area and then placed a piece of watercolour paper onto that area and rolled over it with a brayer. That way the end result will be nice and even. So these are actually the same colours as on the previous card, but in much lighter tone due to the water spray.

SONY DSC

This way I didn´t waste any ink and could create a nice negative stencil image background for my second card. I wanted to keep the main focus on the pretty background pattern and therefore just added some yarn, a pin, butterflies and a sentiment onto the card. Now let´s move to the third card:

SONY DSC

I again used the same Distress Ink tones like on my previous cards. This time I placed the stencil over a piece of white paper and just wiped the red Distress Ink onto the background thru the stencil. The stencil is again the 12×12 inch „Vineyard“ one.

SONY DSC

Next I went and wiped some Wild Honey Distress Ink over the stenciled image and then used the 6×6 inch „Vineyard“ stencil to add some light texture paste over the inked area.

SONY DSC

Before the paste was totally dry, I quickly added a layer of yellow Distress Glitter over the paste and let it dry. After it was totally dry I dabbed the residue off. It stayed put really well – you just need to work fast. If the paste has time to dry the glitter will not stick.

SONY DSC

And this is how the finished card looks like. I didn´t add a sentiment on the cover, as I found this card didn´t really need one. Depending on the occation, one can write the sentiment on to the inside later. Here are some closies of the cards.

I had lots of fun creating these cards and layering the stencils, stamps and media over each other. Now it is your turn – have fun!!!

I have first used 3 sheets of the Core’dinations heavyweight white cardstock (cut in half) and misted them with spray inks. Then I have either added a plain white texture paste thru the stencils onto the surface or mixed a transparent texture paste with black acrylic paint together and applied that thru the stencils onto the surface. On some cards I´ve added both. On a few cards there is also a layer of transparent texture paste mixed either with loose glitter or I have just applied the paste thru a stencil and then added a layer of Distress Glitter over the wet paste. Other than that I have just embellished the cards and added the sentiment. Super fun and very easy to do!

Needless to say that I really, really like the new line 🙂 ….

Happy stenciling!!!

Distress Glitter Ideen – Pipilonias kreative Welt

Hallo ihr Lieben! Für heute habe ich ein kleines Video für euch wieder vorbereitet. Diesmal habe ich Distress Glitter ausprobiert. Es ist ja kein Geheimnis, dass ich dieses Produkt sehr mag.

  • – Erstens, weil es nicht so viel Mist macht, wie normales Glitter – der Tisch und die Hände sind nachher leicht zu reinigen.
  • – Zweitens, weil es gröber ist, als der normale, feine Glitter und dadurch ist der Effekt auch irgendwie ganz anders (mehr Vintage).
  • – Drittens: er besteht aus kleinen Plastikteilen, die sich nicht unter großer Hitze verformen. Viele gute Gründe also, das Produkt auf Anhieb zu mögen.

Das Video ist wieder mit englischen Untertiteln versehen, falls ihr also Fragen haben solltet, beantworte ich sie gerne. Ich hoffe, das Video gibt euch Anregungen zum Produkt und inspiriert euch, es selbst auszuprobieren! Viel Spaß beim Schauen!!!

Hier sind noch ein paar fertige Karten (mit ganz viel Glitter) zur Ansicht. Weiters könnt ihr hier, hier und hier sehen, wie man das Produkt auf Layouts oder Art Journaling Seiten einsetzen kann.

Hei! Tänään on vuorossa video ja muutama kortti, joiden tekemiseen käytin Distress Glitter jauhetta. Tykkään siitä, koska se ei ole kauhean hienojakoista ja koska se kestää kuumentamista kuumailmapistoolilla sekä sen käyttön jälkeen ei ole joka paikka täynnä glitteriä. Hauskoja katseluhetkiä!!

Hi, today I am going to share a little video on ideas how to use Distress Glitter. I really like the product, as it does not make a huge mess and is easy to clean up. Additionally you can heat it with a heat gun and it will not melt. Oh, and it is not as fine as the normal glitter and creates a more vintage kind of surface. Have fun watching the video!

Happy crafting,
xoxo, Sanna

I used the following Distress Glitter colours on my cards: Victorian Velvet, Mustard Seed, Peacock Feathers, Fired Brick.
