Slimline CAS Christmas card

Hello and happy Tuesday! Today I am stopping by for another Christmas card share. This time made with old product from my stash and some Canvas Corp Brands Christmas papers.

How I did this card? Here is a hint 🙂 :

I pierced holes into the precut glitter Christmas tree with my Tim Holtz piercing (craft) tool, then I just added very old Basic Grey brads to create “baubles” for the tree. That´ s all! A Canvas Corp background paper to go with their sentiment paper strip and the card was done.

Such an easy way to a) recycle bits and b) reduce older stash and the tree looks kind of cute in the end with the different coloured baubles on it.

This will be a fun card to put into mail to someone special this year!
Wishing you a good day,

Happy Holidays

Hello and happy Monday! I have now officially started on my yearly Christmas cards. Late, like every year ;-). I have quite a few to do, so I will be sharing them here from time to time, sometimes maybe even in bulk, so you don´ t get bored :). Here is today´ s share:

The papers are by Canvas Corp Brands, from my DT time there and I´ ve added a half pearl from my junk drawer and a precut glitter snowflake as a focal point. A Christmas card always can use some glitter, if you as me.

I really, really like the simplicity of this particular card. Also the colours. Too bad I don´ t have more of this gorgeous paper in my stash. It makes fab xmas card backgrounds!

Hoping your week will be a good one! See you on Wednesday with a Xmas card tutorial share and also stop by later this week for more card shares :).

Where did the time go? – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello everyone and welcome to another The Wild Hare Kits March project share. Even though my March kit is still on it´s world tour from the US over Sydney to me, I have still been scrapping! I´ve put all my previous kit leftovers together and am creating projects with those during March.

Here is one more layout made that way – this one is also my take on our monthly SCRAPLIFT team challenge:

This month we are scraplifting our new team member Antonia (you can find her at Instagram under @antsheartseggy) . This is the layout I picked from her feed:

I love her basic layout idea so much! And the fact how the title guides the eye towards the journaling on the very bottom corner of the page. I followed her sketch with my layout, but added plenty of bits and bobs under my photo. So there are lots of layers this time.

I´ve combined something from every previous kit to this layout. As you can see, the Wild Hare Kits go such a long way, because this is already my second layout created using all my kit leftover pieces. And there is still more to be shared.

I´ve also recorded a start-to-finish video again for you to watch. Hope you like it!!!

Now´s your turn. Pick a layout created by Antonia and lift it! Then use @thewildharekits when sharing on social media, so we can come and take a look! Have fun!!

Happy scrapping,

A set of baby cards – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello everyone, it´s my turn to share a set of “build a Hippo” baby cards over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog. I adore this little die cut die so much! It´s perfect for so many occations and like made for creating baby cards! And while I was at it, a created a set of three. You never know when you need one!

This is how I created the cards:

Step 1: First take a sheet of White Soft Finish Cardstock and die cut 3 sets of Hippos. And don´t forget to die cut the feet six times!!
Step 2: Next take a sheet of Soft Sky and Dusky cardstock and die cut two sets with the Stitched Rounded Rechtangle from the blue paper and one set from the lilac one.
Step 3: Take a white Soft Finish Cardstock sheet (or glitter cardstock) and die cut three sets with the Postage Stamp Rectangles die cut die.
Step 4: Ink the hippo pieces with grey and pink stamp ink, but leave the eyes and teeth white.

Step 5: Now cut blue and purple patterned paper into a card size from the polka-dotted “Thinking about Polinesia” paper. Adhere onto the card base.
Step 6: Attach a piece of ribbon in blue and pink onto the cards, then adhere the rechtangle pieces on place. Start with the postage stamp piece and adhere the rounded rectangle on top.
Step 7: Add a stamped sentiment using the Ahoy Sentiments or the Build Your Own Sentiments 1 stamp set and black stamp ink.
Step 8: Color the tiny eye pieces with a black marker and adhere on place.

To give you a better idea of each and every step, I´ve again recorded a video for your to watch. I hope you like it!

I hope I could inspire you to play with your die cut dies a little today and create a few cards yourself! I´ll be back with another project next month.

Until then, happy crafting!
