Forever and always – Dani Peuss

Hello lovelies and happy Thursday! Today I am stopping by to share yet another wedding card with you. This time in pink tones. This card too, has a gift card pocket inside it.

I again used the Dani Peuss July kit papers for this card. The pink paper on the backgroud is from the kit. The other papers are from my own stash and older, but since the colours worked so well together, I used them.

The die cutting is again done using Elizabeth Craft Designs dies and the chipboard piece is by Wycinanka.

I also added some silver peel-off stickers to the background for additional detail and layered everything else on top of them. I also sneaked in some flower stickers from my older stash which also worked so well with the rest. I love adding and combining old with the new (also fits the wedding theme very well ;-)..) to my cards.

Inside the card there is plenty of room for wishes and the gift card. As you can see the Dani Peuss kit papers go a long way on a slimline card.

I also added plenty of half pearls to the card, because they make the card even more festive. I just hope now that the recipients will love the card.

Here is also a quick flip-thru video on the 3 recent cards I created – hope you like it:

Hope you liked what I shared and got inspired by it! I enjoy making slimline cards so much at the moment. I haven´ t done a mixed media card in a while – I wonder if I could still do one ;-). But I think it is very healthy to change the routine from time to time – otherwise it will all get boring.

Have a great Friday and see you during the weekend again with some more project shares.

To have and to hold – Dani Peuss

Hello lovelies! Today I am sharing another slimline card with a gift card pocket inside. This time it is a wedding card.

On the front I have used a green paper from the Dani Peuss July Kit as the card background. These papers have the perfect size for slimline cards, by the way. If you tilt the paper, you have enough material to fill in 3 pages of the card (see how I used the same paper inside the card in the photos later).

For decoration I used some older stickers and papers, as well as Wycinanka chipboards, from my older stash. The die cut dies I have used here are by Elizabeth Craft Designs. I have plenty of layers on top of each other here to create a really romantic cluster of leaves, pearls, ribbons and stickers.

Inside the card I created a pocket on the left side to place in a gift card or even money and punched the border with a Martha Stewart border punch. Remember how we used to collect these quie a few years ago? I have been trying to incorporate old product and “old” tools (do tools get old/go out of fashion?) into my recent cards. They still work like a dream and if the embellishments match too, why not use them?

The cream toned paper is by Prima Marketing and also from my older stash, but as the color worked togehter so well, I used it here.

I really like how this card turned out. It is festive for sure, so I am hoping the recipients will like it too.

See you soon again with another wedding card share!

Season´ s Greetings

Hello everyone and happy Sunday! Today I´ m preparing more Christmas cards again, and wanted to share a card that resulted as a residue project from my previous Elizabeth Craft Designs cardmaking video.

I used the Classic Christmas Special Kit products on this card too and created the background with a leftover cover sheet of the background die. It was a left over piece from die cutting their Clear Double Sided Adhesive with the background die. I just placed it onto the card base and applied Distress Oxide thru it onto the card. That way I had a DIY stencil for creating the pattern.

Next I used two leftover bauble pieces and adhered Clear Double Sided Adhesive in strips across them. Then applied different tones of Silk Microfine Glitter on them and after that added some craft drops along the lines. For additional detail I used the adhesive tape on the sided to add even more shine to the card. A in black stamped and fussy cut sentiment from the stamp and die set got used in the middle.

These baubles were so much fun to make. Imagine doing two-toned ones in red and white or turquoise and gold or any other fun combination!! And the sparkle! I just love sparkly things for Christmas and Silk Microfine Glitter is the perfect product for this season :).

Have a great day and wishing you a good start into the new week!

Full-on sparkle Xmas cards – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello everyone! I am up over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs with a December card tutorial. I find that sparkly cards during the holiday season are the best choice – always. Therefore I have created a set of six cards with the same basic idea today, just modifying the technique from one set to another a little bit.

For the first card I used the Classic Christmas Special Kit and started with the background die. I applied Sea Glass and Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter to the background and then moved on to the creating the baubles.

On the baubles I used Violet, Diva and and Bright Grape Silk Microfine Glitter in combination with Yellow. I finished the baubles with Pewter bits. After finishing the baubles I added a stamped sentiment to the card using the stamp set that comes with the Classic Christmas Special Kit. For additinal decor and texture I added some Craft Drops to the baubles.

For my second card set I used the same idea, but applied all the glitter layers directly to a sheet of Clear Double Sided Adhesive and started with Spring Peridot tone for the background. Then I applied Bright Cranberry, Peony Pink, Copper Rose and Cool Diamond tones to the baubles one after another. First doing the red layers and then adding the white tone. I stamped and fussy cut the sentiment to the card and finished everything with Craft Drops again.

While I was at it, I did a blue-red-white-silver-toned card too. It´s all the same steps, just different glitter tones.

For my last set of three cards I used the same basic idea, but on a smaller piece of paper only creating one bauble per card. I changed the glitter tones on each card to create variation and die cut the bauble with the Dotted Scalloped Circle die. These are more clean and simple in style and much faster to finish, so they are easy to do in series. The sentiment is directly stamped onto the card base with black ink.

Here are a few more in single bauble ones in various colours. I also added plenty of Craft Drops to each of these cards to bring some contrast to them and to make the images pop even more.

To give you a better idea on how I made these cards, I´ ve recorded a quite a long video. Hope you get inspired and play some with Silk Microfine Glitter and the Classic Christmas Special Kit. They truly are a perfect match!

As this will be my very last guest design team post, I would like to thank Els, Joset and the whole team for having me! It´s been truly a pleasure being part of the Elizabeth Craft Designs family for so many years. I´ve enjoyed every bit of it and will continue using their products in the future too. I hope to have inspired you all throught the years. If you want to see what I´ll be upto in the future, you can follow my blog and YouTube channel.

Wishing everyone a peaceful and lovely Holiday Season and thanks for a great time!!

Holiday card

Hello and happy Monday! Today´ s card share is another stash busting share and a holiday card of a different kind for someone, who does not like a traditional Christmas card.

I took my Neocolor 2 crayons and a water tank brush out and after applying the old silver stickers onto the paper, applied the crayons to create a watercolor look.

For the sentiment I used the Elizabeth Craft Designs Classic Christmas Special Kit´ s stamp set and Nuvo Drops for small details. For stamping I used the Distress Oxide Iced Spruce tone.

A simple holiday season card and I am proud to have used some older product again. Wishing you a good week!!
