Sanna´s CCB Christmas Craft Kit – Project 3

Hello there again! Today I´d like to share the third CCB Christmas craft kit project with you. A set of DIY present tags.

After finishing the present bag and the cards, I still had plenty of material left for these tags in my kit. So I used all the leftover pieces that were of suitable size and die cut some tags from them.  Here they are:

I used my die cutting machine with some STAMPlorations nesting die cut dies to cut the tag bases from the patterned paper that was in the kit. There are also tags, that were die cut from a DIY paper – see the links at the end of this post, to watch all the kit related videos on my YouTube channel.

For decoration I added some older glitter alphas (Pink Paislee) and some resin DIY flowers.

I had a lot of fun creating these tags. I plan to make quite simple present packaging for the presents that I plan to add these tags to. That way they will stand out even more under the Christmas tree.

For a full start-to-finish tutorial, I´ve again recorded a video for you to watch. I hope you get inspired by this kit and by the videos and get yourself a kit. They are on sale for a very low prize (value is about USD 40,-), so get them, while they are available!!! This kit is not only suitable for a Christmas theme thru it´s elegant color sheme, but can also be used for birthdays and Valentine´s themes even. So take advantage of this offer :)!!!

Here is the video – hope you enjoy watching it:

Happy crafting,

Sanna´s CCB Christmas craft kit – project No. 2

Hello there! Remember the Christmas craft kit I picked from the Canvas Corp Brands online store? Well, it is time to start sharing some Christmas projects, created with that kit. Here is the second one – a set of cards and a start-to-finish video to go with them:

For this set of cards I ´ve used practically something for every item in the kit (except for the canvas flower and the canvas bag – used in the previous project). I´ve also created a DIY background paper to go with the patterned papers from the kit. See the video for full details and the how-to.

The basic design on these cards is pretty much the same on every card, I´ve just changed the order of the papers abit. This way you can easily create a bigger set of cards, using the same basic design idea, but adding little variations. That way there will not be a second card that looks exactly the same.

For a full start-to-finish tutorial, see the following video. I hope you get inspired by this kit and the cards!!!

December Mixed Media challenge – STAMPlorations

Hi there everyone, it´s time to share the STAMPlorations December Mixed Media Challenge with you today! For today´s challenge reveal I´ve created a set of Artist Trading Cards.

Here is my set of ATC´s:

I´ve first applied a layer of DIY glitter paste onto the bigger paper (on the background) thru a stencil. Then I misted that piece with brown Glimmer Mist spray. I did the same with the top paper pieces (first misting with pink Glimmer Mist and then applying the DIY glitter paste thru the stencil onto the paper. After the paste was dry, I adhered the pieces together, added some residue tinted texture paste treated music notes paper on top.

Next I decorated the ATC´s with 7gypsies Architextures decor pieces, some paper flowers, printed masking tape and Glimmer Glaze.

On the second card I´ve used a velvet ruffle flower instead of paper flowers, everything else is the same as on the previous ATC. By now you should be familiar with the rules, on how to play along, but if not, be sure to check them out here! Playing along is really easy and the rules are very simple to follow, so do take some time to play along with us also this month!! There are fab prizes to be won, too! Read more here on the STAMPlorations blog. Even though it´s December and we all tend to be very busy this time of the year, maybe you will still find some time to play and join this challenge. It´s a fun one – hope to see you at STAMPlorations!!!

Oh snap card

Hello there everyone and happy Saturday! Today I´d like to share a simple and easy to do card with you. I love stencils, as you might have noticed by now 🙂 – and the background of this card is done using a stencil. It´s a very simple and easy to do technique, you just mix embossing paste/transparent texture paste with paint and apply it onto a piece of paper thru the stencil.

Let dry, cut into right size, adhere on card base and decorate. That´s all there is to this card. I´m trying to reduce my older stash abit, so I creating cards, tags and ATC´s and adding plenty of product from my stash onto them.

It´s really important to actually use the product we have, as they too have a best before date on them. So make sure you use your pastes, inks, paints and other products! Don´t let them get out of style/dry out – have fun using them!!! Wishing you a creative day &

Altered wood block home decor piece

Hello everybody, we have had a little summer break from the regular STAMPlorations posts and they will be returning very soon, but it is not quite time for that yet. Therefore, today I´d like to share a „just for fun“ STAMPlorations tutorial with you.

I´ve created a home decor piece out of a wood block my dear husband cut for me into a shape of a house. I wanted to use motivational stamp sentiments as a focal point on this piece and built the layers and decoration around it. Here is what I did:

I also created a fast forward video with all the steps until to the finished block for you to watch. Hope you enjoy and get inspired to play a little with your stamps, stencils and media! Remember, there is no right or wrong, no right colors or wrong colors – just use what you have and like! Remember to have fun :).

Just in case you are interested on some products I´ve used on this project, I´ll add the LinkDeli links which will directly take you to each product (some products may not be available anymore, as they are from my older stash, but I will replace those with similar ones).

As always, if you would like to purchase any of the STAMPlorations products used on this project, feel free to grab my personal 20% off discount code (STAMPGIRLSANNA) and use it upon checkout at their store. It is valid for both regular prized as well as reduced product!

Happy creating & let´s stay creative!

Make today count canvas

Hello there, lovelies. I am up over at the Canvas Corp Brands blog with an upcycled canvas project you might be interested in taking a look at. It is an older canvas I didn´t like that much anymore, so I took it, removed some bits and started all over again with it. Here is a look at my brand new upcycled canvas piece:

For a step-by-step TUTORIAL see this blog post over at the Canvas Corp Brands blog. I hope you get inspired by my upcycling project and take a second look at your own deco pieces that might be in need of some upcycling love 😉 …

Wishing you Happiness – STAMPlorations

Hello lovelies, it´s again time for yet another Stencil Sunday and since it´s also the first Sunday of the month, it´s also Mixed Media Challenge reveal time. That means there is quite a bunch of inspiration up over at the STAMPlorations blog prepared for you by my fellow design team colleagues and me. Here is what I did for this months reveal post:

These tags are pretty simple to make, so if you are in a rush and need a quick project, this might be something for you :). And as always, by changing the color combination and stamp images you can pretty much go to any direction and theme you want. I like basic ideas like this as they work as a nice starting point for a bigger project or can be used as such for a more cleaner and simpler look.

I´ve also prepared a short start-to-finish video for you to watch:

I hope you got inspired and find some time to join this months challenge!! Remember, there are always nice prizes to be won and you can basically create anything (except a card!). You can even use stencils from other brands on your projects, if you don´t happen to have any STAMPlorations ones. Read more about the rules here.

My favorite thing – the MMCC September reveal

Hi there! And just like that it´s September again. I hope you all had a lovely summer!!! Today I´d like to share with you the brand new Mixed Media Card Challenge blog´s SEPTEMBER challenge. The theme this time is: HARVEST BASKET and as an optional element you are to use: FRUIT.

Here is my take (obviously without the basket):
Sanna Lippert

My Card is full of pears – suitable for September as they usually are ripe around this time. I´ve inked the pear stamp with three different Distress Ink tones (orange, green and brown)  and then stamped the images in rows.

I also outlined the fruit with a black pen, added some transparent rhinestones on each of them and colored those with Copic markers green or orange. Then I stamped and fussy cut the sentiment and added yellow and green Glimmer Mist splatters onto the background as well as some black Glimmer Glaze spots.

Sanna LippertPears are one of my favorite fruit, so the sentiment is just perfect :). Now it is your turn – get your product out and create a fun mixed media card for this challenge!!!

See you at MMCC,
xxx, Sanna

Travelling tags and more – Canvas Corp Brands

Hi there, I have actually managed not to post some of my work on my blog since Christmas… about time to change that! I did a series of tags and a canvas that went to the Canvas Corp Brands CHA 2016 booth and have been travelling with them ever since :). Lucky tags – I wonder if they´d take me instead of the tag *giggles*…

I´ll start with tag No.1:

Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertPretty much everything on this tag is Canvas Corp Brands product (the corrugated cardboard, the spray inks, the Tattered Tangles paper, the burlap and the stamping. The only thing that is not their product, are the stencils I used and the &-sign. Now to tag No.2:

Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertThis again, is a full Canvas Corp Brands product tag. It´s Christmas themed, since there was a little Xmas corner on the CCB booth at CHA. And then there was tag No. 3:

Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertThis one is quite clean & simple actually. I did add quite an amount of Distress Glitter on it :). And the bow, the bow was my personal favorite on it. I wanted to keep it as an eye catcher. Here again, mists, stamping and paper by CCB. And there was also a canvas I sent them: Sanna LippertI´m really happy this one made it to the display. I like the colors on it alot. Again, I´ve used all kinds of Tattered Angels goodness on this one. In addition corrugated cardboad by CCB, lots of misting, some die cut dies and some stamping.  Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertI really like the product lines at Canvas Corp Brands. Everything works together, older or new product! All paper lines are very timeless. I obviously have a weak spot for their color lines, but I recommend you check out their canvas, burlap and fabric lines too. And don´t forget the papers :). Love working with this company´s product!!!

I also sent some other work with all these pieces to CHA, but that has been already shared here at some point, so no need to mention those again.

Happy crafting,

12 tags of 2015 – December w/ Canvas Corp Brands product

Hello there, lovelies! I´ve wanted to share this tag for months now, but never came found the time. This tag is created with Canvas Corp Brands product and after the 12 tags of 2015 – December tutorial by Tim Holtz. Here is what I did:

Sanna Lippert1. I took piece of Canvas Corp canvas and placed a The Crafter´s Workshop stencil over the surface. I used washi tape to adhere the stencil on it´s place. Sanna Lippert2. Next I sprayed some Baseboard Mist Paint (Gerber) spray ink over the canvas piece. Sanna Lippert3. I always use the residue ink too, by pressing a watercolor paper over the damp surface. That way I get a second image – it might come handy for a journal or another mixed media project later.  Sanna Lippert4. This is how the misted canvas looks like. Sanna Lippert5. My tag is not very chrismassy, as I used hydrangea petals (punch by Martha Stewart) for the wreath. Here I punched them from a piece of ivory cardstock (also by Canvas Corp Brands.) Sanna Lippert6. I then placed the petal over a dry baby wipe and misted them with Kiwi spray ink (by Tattered Angels – also a Canvas Corp Brand). Sanna Lippert7. Next I adhered the canvas and the wreath pieces on to a tag. I used a piece of golden yarn as a „wreath base“, adhering the green petals along it. Then I added a few silver rhinestones on top of the petals for additional interest. A green ribbon from my stash went on top. Sanna Lippert8. I used some Tim Holtz rub-ons on ivory cardstock, then misted the with Boardwalk Glimmer Mist over the area to create a grayish background. Sanna Lippert9. I cut the sentiments onto banners and adhered them onto the tag. Then I added some grey Glimmer Glaze splatters onto the background. A little Prima pebble also found it´s way onto the tag. Sanna Lippert10. Finally, some white platters had to be added too. I used the Liquitex Titanium White Ink for this purpose. Sanna LippertIn the end I resized the tag abit as I didn´t like the grey tone on top. Notice that I even did the sewing, like on Tim´s tag. And I am definitely really bad in sewing :-).  Sanna LippertThis is the finished tag – and some close-ups to follow too. Really enjoyed making this!!! Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert This tag has been touring with the Canvas Corp booth since CHA 2016. I´m kinda jelous of it, it get´s to see so many fairs I cannot attend 😉 …
