Sweet Christmas cards

Hello and happy Monday! I still have a few sets of Christmas cards to share with you guys – I hope you can still cope with the Christmas card overload ;-). Soon there will be other shares again too, I promise!

This Mintay Christmas paper collection might just be one of my very faves. It is uber cute and I just love it for that reason! Perfect for sweet and cute Christmas cards. Here is a set of 5 cards I did recently. I basically added the papers (did quite a lot fussy cutting too) and here and there some lace, wax seals, stickers or die cut backgrund pieces and rounded the cards up with Klartext stamp sentiments. I have this cool stamp set from then with 13 different “Merry Christmas” sentiments in different sizes and fonts. That set is just so, so, so versatile and works basically for every card! For one of the cards I also sneaked in another Klartext stamp set (Mixed Media Weihnachten).

Oh, and on one of the cards I sneaked a Studio Tekturek paper background to accompany the Mintay papers. Also a wax seal done by my friend Lizzy is there too :). And just a few small drops of Nuvo glitter glue here and there for that additional sparkle.

I hope you still enjoy seeing these 😉 – just a few more days and then I promise to share something else again :)!!! Have a great week!

Mixed media card

Hello and happy Thursday! Today I´m stopping by to share one more mixed media card with you. I again did the background using Gelli Arts gelli plate with my stencil designs.

I first did the pattern with the gel plate and a stencil design of mine using red acrylic paint on white paper. For the next step I took orange toned Distress Ink and inked the white areas with it. It´s a nicer contrast for the eye and the strong red/white tones.

For the flower and petals I used a STAMPlorations stamp set on a residue piece of that gelli printed paper and stamped the images with black ink. For finishing touches I added a clear sticker (also by STAMPlorations) and a red button into the middle of the flower. The card is still flat enough to fit into an envelope :).

Wishing you a great day!

Wedding card

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I´m stopping by to share a wedding card I recently created. This one is again made out of older product that has been sitting on my schelf for a long time. About time it got used!

I made a slimline card base out of cream cardstock and then added the light brown patterned paper as a background to the card. After that I took some older Pink Paislee paper and fussy cut the roses and arranged them onto the left upper and right lower corner of the card. A stamped sentiment into the middle with a Teresa Collins sticker and the card was done.

I really like how this card turned out! It´s happy and elegant at the same time. I love the yellow roses!! And the red stamped sentiment works great with the rose paper, too! As I´ve used old product from my stash, I´ve tried to find similar product for you from recent collections and lines.

That´s all for today. Wishing you a great week!
Happy crafting,

Baby card – Tonic Studios

Hello and happy Friday!!! Like promised yesterday, I´m back with another baby card share today again. Here is what I did:

This card is a personalized one, because of it´s recipient. Also there was supposed to be a giraffe on the card and rather green tones than blue ones.

I´ve again used the Garden Gate Layering Die Set by Tonic Studios for die cutting the frame. Parts of it are made from patterned paper, one part is from white cardstock that I inked with green Distress Ink tone and an ink blending tool. The stamp image is from my older stash of stamps. I colored it with Stampin´ Up! markers. The alphas are also old and by Sassafras. And the various green papers are also from older stash of mine. The Nuvo Drops I´ve used, are the tone Bottle Green. I´ve rounded the edges with a corner chomper, by the way.

I really like how the card turned out. Hope the recipient is happy with it too!

See you soon again with another type of projects.

You proved them wrong layout – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello everyone, today I´m sharing my 4th layout, created with the September The Wild Hare Kits Petite Kit. I so adore this months kit. I love the colours and how everything in the kit works so well together!!!

For today´s project I´ve created a 12×12 layout using the second Just A Little Lovely collection paper by Pink Fresh Studio that was in my kit. I LOVE the b-sides of the papers in my kit!!! This collection has everything I love in it!!


For this one I´ve used following steps:

  1. Using the Garden Geometric Stencil by Carta Bella I´ve applied Distress Ink in yellow and blue tones onto the patterned paper with a blending brush thru the stencil.
  2. Next I added some spray ink splatters in green, pink and blue tones next to the stenciled areas.
  3. I then arranged the 3 black and white photos of my boy onto the page and matted one of the Sparkle City papers by Shimelle onto the cutfile. I love this cutfile, by the way! It´s perfect for so many different types of layouts, not just only for school theme!!!
  4. After matting the cut file I added some Sparkle City stickers onto it to create a look of book names on the book spines.
  5. Next I started arranging paper strips (Sparkle City papers from my kit) onto the background under and next tot he cutfile.
  6. I fussy cut a tag and a few journaling „speech bubbles“ and added them to the layout.
  7. Before adhering all the paper pieces onto the page I added some stamped sentiments for additional interest to the layout.
  8. Finally I added a glitter alpha sticker title to the page and a few black ink splatters here and there.

I´ve also recorded a start-to-finish video for you to watch. I hope it inspires you to scrap a little yourself!!! When using your Wild Hare Kits, remember to tag us and use #wildharekits doing so!! We´d love to see what you create with the kits!!

I´ll be back tomorrow sharing my last TWHK September project and a wrap-up video of all projects created with this months kit. Also I´ll be showing you what is left of my kit after scrapping lots :). So be sure to check back tomorrow for more.

Happy scrapping,
