Hello and happy Sunday! For today´ s project share I have created another card – this time for a birthday – using the Dani Peuss Klartext stamps. This one is called „Pfingstrosen“ and it is a lovely flower set.
I took a piece of white paper, inked it with Distress Inks in two blue tones and added water droplets to the background to create some pattern to the colour. Next I stamped and heat embossed the flowers to the backround paper with white heat embossing powder. After that I added embossing enamel to some areas. For the sentiment I wripped a piece of vellum and heat embossed the birthday sentiment with gold embossing powder using the Klartext „Folg deinem Herzen“ stamp set.
For finishing touches I added a few golden enamel dots. This adds nice detail and a little additional texture to the card, but does not make it too bulky for shipping.
That´ s it for today! See you again tomorrow with anothr project share. Enjoy your Sunday,
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 everyone and happy Tuesday! Today it´s again my turn to share my monthly Studio Tekturek desing team project. I scapped our 2020 family Christmas foto for this layout using non- and christmas-themed papers in combination. I love the blue-red-and white combo here.
This is what the finished page looks like. I used the following Studio Tekturek collections to create this page: One Way Ticket, Peachy Christmas and This Summertime. I love the „This Summertime“ collection so much! the colours are also perfect for a Christmas theme.
I used a die cut leftover protective sheet from a clear double sided adhesive sheet by Elizabeth Craft Designs as my stencil. It´s a piece leftover from die cutting that particular die cut die with their background die. The leftover sheet works perfectly as a stencil for creating a fun background under the photo. I used Nuvo Embellishment Mousse (Mother of Pearl) with the DIY stencil.
For the rest I mainly did fussy cutting and layered various bits and pieces next to each other and overlappingly along the middle, where the papers change and added various fussy cut labels towards the left top corner.
In addition to the papers and stenciling, I did some stamping with various roller stamps from Studio Calico and Dear Lizzy. The title „2020“ is done with Thickers and I actually fussy cut „8´s“ to make „2´s“. For finishing touches I also added some enamel dots. That´s pretty much it. The journaling is hidden behind the photo (see the tag peeking out?).
I really love the Studio Tekturek papers so very much! It´s a small family owned company and during these pandemic times, I would like you to consider supporting them and bying their papers, so they can keep on designing and producing the gorgeous collections, like so far! I am not getting payed for advertising them, this is just something that means a lot to me. Thank you!
Wishing you a lovely Christmas holiday time! We had a quiet, lovely Christmas amongst only the closest family (us and the kids). It was perfect! We cooked together, ate good food together and spend a lovely evening with each other! A perfect Christmas eve!
Take care! We are on lockdown number three here in Austria since yesterday…
Hello and happy Saturday!! How are you doing? I´ve been organizing our closets during the past weekends, because it was about time and it´s a good activity during the pandemic in my opinion. It´s kind of addictive too! I´ve been influenced by Marie Kondo and that method has taken over our closets. And it feels so good!!
Now to today´s card:
I did this one for a colleague at work – he is turning 50. He has a great humour, so I could put this type of card together for him. This was so much fun to do!
The background is done with Dina Wakley gloss sprays (in spring during one of her FB lives). I just used it as a card background and added some stenciling on top (STAMPlorations stencil) and decorated the card with a Tim Holtz paper doll, that got a red clown nose and then I added the stamped sentiment. I had a great time creating this card!!!
And today, again, I had been organizing clothes. I´ve gathered quite a pile of stuff that I am partly going to donate, partly sell and some of the stuff has already been donated to close family and friends. Feels good to give those things away and for someone else to find joy in them. I cannot wait to organize more!! It might be spring by the time I´m thru with every drawer in this house, but at least I´ve spend my time doing something good inside these walls.
See you tomorrow with a Christmas tag tutorial, so be sure to stop by this space then :). xxx, Sanna
Hello and happy (groovy?) Monday!! I missed WCMD (World Card Making Day), but hey, I actually DID make cards that day. Only, that the projects will be shared to a later date :-D! So to do some belated WCMD celebrating, I´m sharing a fun card I created past weekend. It just makes me smile and who does not need a smile on a Monday?!
I just love how this card turned out. It´s nothing complicated, really, but it´s the look on his face with the red nose enamel dot and the sentiment „groovy“ that brings a wide grin on my face. Hope it does on yours too!!?
So it´s again Monday and it´s going to be another tough week, but I hope to bring some happiness and joy to you with this card. I love the colours too. The background is from a a Dina Wakley Collage Collective book and the stenciling is done with one of my stencil designs „Winter Flowers“ using a Nuvo Embellishment Mousse in pink. The man is from people sets by Tim Holtz and the sentiment is written by my lovely friend Lizzy. And the enamel dot is my older stash.
Can´t wait to give this card to someone special! And I need to mention here that I definitely do need a day between Sunday and Monday. It always seems that the weekends are too short, by the time I have got my energy levels up for all kinds of fun stuff, it´s again Sunday and time is running out.. Anyone else with me on this?
Hope you have a great week with lots of crafty time, beautiful fall weather (hopefully sunshine!) and nice long walks between all the work crazy.
