Hugs card

Hello there, everyone!!! Today I´m stopping by to share another quick and easy to make card with you! This time I´ve combined some Elizabeth Craft Designs die cut dies and stamps with a STAMPlorations stencil. This is how my card turned out:

This one was again quite easy to make. I first doodled the raindrops thru a ARTplorations raindrop stencil with a white gel pen onto the light green paper. Then I die cut the Chevron Background from a pink patterned paper and adhere it on top of the stenciled paper. A stamped clear stamp sentiment, so pearls, paper flowers and a die cut, misted rose finish it all off.

Have a wonderful day!!
Stay creative,
xxx, Sanna

Hello lovelies! I am just popping in today to share a quick card with you. This one is made with one of my fave background die cut dies by Elizabeth Craft Designs. I love this heart pattern!

Basically the card consists of the die cut paper piece, matted onto a piece of patterned paper. Then a stamped sentiment from a Joset Designs clear stamp set and some paper flowers and liquid pearls for decoration. Fast, fun and easy!

Hope your day runs as smoothly as this card was easy to create!!!

XOXO Card – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello lovelies! I´m quickly dropping by today to share a card with you. This one is again created with Elizabeth Craft Designs die cut dies and I´ve used quite a few Tattered Angels spray inks on this one too.

I started by taking a pink polka dotted paper and die cutting the Stitched Fishtail banner with that. Then I took a plain white cardstock and used the Stitched Hearts die cut die to cut three hearts from it. I misted the hearts with various tones of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and let the pieces dry. The die cut background piece is also misted with yellow Glimmer Mist. I then simply adhered a piece of pink polka dotted patterned paper behind the yellow misted piece, adhered those together, then adhered the misted hearts with 3D foam on top and finally added the banner and the „xoxo“ die cut word on top.

I then decorated the misted hearts with glitter glue & the background with some texture spray droplets and wood veneer pieces. Finally, I added faux stitching  around the edges with a black pen. That´s all there is to this card. Very fast and easy to do.

Hope you have a lovely day!
Let´s stay creative,

Misted background die cut cards – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello there, today I´d like to share a set of easy to make misted background, die cut cards with you. They are also up over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog. I really like to use color when crafting and spray inks are so much fun. Therefore I wanted to share this simple and easy card making idea with you!

This is how I created the cards:
1. Take a cardboard box (to protect your working area!) and place a piece of white carstock into the box. Very randomly spray areas of the white cardstock with purple and then green spray ink (you can naturally choose any other color combination too). Dry with a heat tool.
2. Take the dry misted cardstock piece and place three die cut dies onto it and run thru your die cutting machine.
3. Remove the die cut parts – save them, as you can use them on another card – and use the background. Adhere onto a white card base.
4. Take another piece of white cardstock and die cut a sentiment/word at least three times. Adhere the die cut words on top of each other and then onto the card.
5. Apply Glossy Accents on top of the word and carefully sprinkle Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter onto the wet areas. You can simply dab off the loose glitter later, since it will only stick to areas where the wet Glossy Accents is. Let dry properly.
6. Finally take some white texture spray ink and splatter around the card for a fun detail. Let dry.


By changing the color combination or adding letter stickers instead of die cut words, you can easily change/vary the look of the card.

We still have the leftover die cut Leaf Branches to use. Here is an example how you could use those leftover pieces:

Basically, using similar ideas, but replacing the background with a dry embossed white background piece and misting the die cut word you can create a nice card with the leftover pieces and nothing goes to waste. Here is a little start-to-finish video to give you a better idea of the single steps. Hope you like it!

Happy crafting,
Sanna

Today I´m quickly dropping by here just to share a fast and easy card that really does not take that long to make. Yet, depending on the papers you use or the patterns and colours you choose, you can create a card for practically any occation.

I used the new Elizabeth Craft Designs releases for this card: The Stitched Fishtail Banners with the die cut word Smile. I first took a piece of white cardstock, placed the word smile on the right lower corner to create an open area there. Then I matted that area with a green patterned paper from the back. Next I cut patterened papers with all the various Stitched Fishtail Banner dies. Now all I needed to do was to adhere the white cardstock piece with foam dots onto a card base for a more dimensional effect and adhere the die cut patterned paper pieces overlappingly. I added three small puffy stickers for decoration and the card was done.

Go check out the new releases over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs website. I adore them!! So many GORGEOUS die cut dies in this release.

Happy crafting,

Be Merry – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello everyone, I am up over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog today with a little Christmas deco piece. I was lucky enough to come across some small alterable light bulbs and I have been thinking of creating little Secret Santa pieces with them for friends and colleagues.

Sanna Lippert - be merry home deco piece

These lightbulbs are great since they are made out of relatively thick glass and have a flat bottom, so they stand alone and are not too fragile to be used as decoration in the household. You can even unscrew the cork and fill the bulb with whatever you prefer! Here is what I came up with:

Sanna Lippert - be merry home deco piece

Step 1: I first took some mini art stones and filled the lightbulb with those.

Sanna Lippert - be merry home deco piece

Step 2: After adding the mini art stones I mixed some mica flakes and bulk glass glitter into the lightbulb. I then place the red wooden pearls carefully inside the lightbulb and closed the lid. Next I added some white cord around the lightbulb for additional interest and adhered the little star embellishment with a piece of 3D foam on top. This is what the base looks like when finished:

Sanna Lippert - be merry home deco piece

Step 3: After the base was done I strung a piece of white wire thru the light bulb cork and formed it into a place card holder form on top to hold the die cut piece later. I also decorated the lightbulb cork with some half pearls for a fun detail.

Step 4: Next I cut two stars with the Entwined Ovals die cut set and two ice cream cones with the Joset Designs Ice Cream Cone die cut die set. When you flip the cone upside down, it looks a little bit like a Christmas tree!

Step 5: After die cutting the white cardstock, I misted the ice cream cone with green spray inks and it immediately looked like a Christmas tree. I glued the pieces together and adhered the stars to the tree. Next I wrote a sentiment onto a piece of white cardstock and cut it into a banner and adhere that to the tree.

Step 6: I then adhered some white half pearls onto the tree and colored them red with a marker. In the end I added some glitter glue onto the star to make it more shiny and then placed the finished Christmas tree on it´s place.

While creating this piece, it occurred to me, that the lightbulbs would make really great place card holders for the Christmas dinner table. I might need to get a few more to complete that idea too!! Hope you enjoyed this home deco step-by-step and get inspired to create!!!

Happy crafting,
Sanna

Christmas card set – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello everyone, it is my turn over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog today again. How many Christmas/Seasonal cards do you send every year? I need quite a big pile for friends and family each year and it has become a tradition to make sure they are all handmade and every single one is different. Quite a challenge, right? Here is a start – a set of four, now I only need 40-something more!

Christmas cards - Sanna Lippert

Christmas cards - Sanna Lippert

1. For the first card take a piece of Misty Mauve Soft Finish Cardstock and cut it into a size of 14,5 x 10 cm. Then take the A Way With Words – Noel die cut die and cut 3 pieces out of the Misty Mauve cardstock. Try to align the words in one line symmetrically underneath each other. Next take a piece of white Soft Finish Cardstock and attach a piece of old book paper onto it using Clear Double Sided Adhesive. Then again gut 3 A Way With Words – Noel die cut pieces from that paper. Now adhere the Misty Mauve cardstock onto a white card base. Then adhere the old book paper Noel die cuts into the middle and use tweezers to adhere and fill in the open spaces with the leftover pieces of the Misty Mauve cardstock. This is a little time consuming, but worth the effort. Finally apply white ink splatters onto the surface. Let dry properly and then attach a matching ribbon.

Christmas cards - Sanna Lippert2. For the second card take another piece of old book paper and tone it light blue with blue spray ink. Let dry. Then take Rosebud and White Soft Finish Cardstock and the Winter Mittens die cut set and cut the ribbon and the solid mitten pieces with the Rosebud tone and the upper pieces from the white Soft Finish Cardstock. Adhere onto each other either using Clear Double Sided Adhesive before die cutting or using a good paper glue afterwords. Decorate the mittens with glitter glue and adhere them onto their places. Finally take a sentiment from the Winter Sentiments die cut set and stamp it onto a piece of white cardstock. In the banner with pink Distress Ink and attach to the card with a stapler. The second card is finished.

Color it light blue with a spray ink and let dry. Take the Through the Lens – Wood paper pack and die cut the Sled from the wooden paper. Take a piece of old book paper for die cutting the poinsettias and the leaves. Stamp a sentiment with Winter Sentiments clear stamp set onto a piece of old book paper with black stamp ink and fussy cut along the edges. Attach a piece of hemp cord onto the sled and ink the poinsettia and the leaves with red and green Distress Ink. Adhere the blue background paper onto a white card base, then adhere the sled and the flowers on their places. Decorate with gems, adhere the sentiment on it´s place and outline the card with a black pen.

Christmas cards - Sanna Lippert4. For the fourth card again cut a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock into a size of 14 x 10 cm. Place it inside the Flower Mosaic embossing folder and run it thru your die cutting machine. Next take the smallest Entwined Circle die cut die and cut a piece of green felt with it. After that stamp a Winter Sentiment onto white cardstock and color the background with light green Distress Ink. Fussy cut along the lines. Next all you need to do is to adhere all the pieces onto their places and decorate with a felt bow and some cork stars.

Christmas cards - Sanna LippertYou can of course create sets of each card while you are at it. That way you will be done with your Christmas card creating in no time. I will need to come up with more cards, so I bet you will be seeing a few more popping up also over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog too!

Happy creating,

Wishing you a colorful day – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello everyone! It´s my turn today over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog to share a set of Soft Finish Cardstock cards. These are again very clean and simple in style and quick and easy to make. I was looking for a soft and nice fall color combination and came up with this one. I really like the color tones of the Soft Finish Cardstock line. They all combine so well together. This is how I created my cards:
Soft Finish Cardstock cards - Sanna Lippert 1. Cut a 14,5 x 10 cm sized piece of Misty Mauve, Perfect Purple, Pink Peach and Sunflower Soft Finish Cardstock. Then take the Holiday Garlands 2 die cut die and cut 3 strips of white Soft Finish Cardstock with it.

Soft Finish Cardstock cards - Sanna Lippert

2. Take the colored Soft Finish Cardstock pieces and run them thru your die cutting machine again using the Holiday Garlands 2 die cut to cut them in 1/3 and 2/3 pieces. This way you will have 2 parts and the garland piece to use from those papers.

Soft Finish Cardstock cards - Sanna Lippert 3. Now take a white card base and glue the colored cardstock pieces overlappingly onto the card base. Adhere the white garland pieces between two colors along the die cut line. Take the Winter Sentiments clear stamp set and stamp the „wishing you a colorful day“ sentence onto a piece of white cardstock. Cut into banners. Adhere the sentiment with a paper flower and some enamel dots onto the card base and the first card is done.

Soft Finish Cardstock cards - Sanna Lippert 4. For the second card repeat steps 2 and 3. This time however use the colored garland pieces, instead of white ones. Always adhere a different tone between the two base colors for more interest. Ink the stamped sentiment and glue that, the garlands and the paper flowers on their places. This card is now done.

These cards are so fast and easy to do. You can create different looks by changing the cardstock colors, the garland shape and the sentiment. You can create ombre effects by choosing similar tones or do a playful looking card with bold colors. Whatever you prefer. And while you are at it, make several sets, you never know when a handmade card might be needed. Have fun!

Some kind of wonderful

Getting together with crafty friends around the globe would be impossible without social media and things like Skype! Me and some of my lovely crafty friends again got together to chat a little and to challenge each other. This time I was not the one setting the rules and to my agony, we had to do totally without mixed media *add a sad face*

Well, I managed, even though my fingers were itching for some paste and ink splatters. So here, a clean & simple card was the end result:

Sanna Lippert - clean and simple die cut cardI used patterned papers from Basic Grey (fresh cut) & Dear Lizzy (documentary). Good to get some paper stash used! The only admission they gave me was to stamp the sentiment. At least some ink in there, eh? *giggles*
Sanna Lippert - clean and simple die cut cardHere is a close-up. I then sent this card to one of my scrappy friends and will get one in return. That will be a total surprise, since we didn´t show each other the cards we were making! These sessions are always great fun. I feel very lucky to have such talented, funny, creative friends around the globe!!! If you´d like to make a similar card, the supplies are listed at the end of this post..

I am joining with STAMPlorations anything CAS goes card challenge with my card:

cas-009-septemberpink2016I managed to add touches of pink into the card (enamel dots & the die cut flowers), so I think I am good to go with this card for this challenge.
