Hello and happy Monday! Are you familiar with „Denglish“? It´ s German phrases translated into english basically word for word. So it probably sounds very horrible for a native English speaking person, but German native speakers find them quite funny and they have become very trendy. Well, I now own a Denglish stamp set that I absolutely love 🙂 – thus this card:
I got mine from Dani Peuss – it´ s one of the Klartext stamp sets. This particular sentiment, translated into proper English means: „How are you doing?“. I´ ve also used the „Scribble Kreise“ stamp set and the „Mixed Media Christmas“ stamp set on this card with „Deglish 2“ stamp set. I used watercolour paper on the background and inked the circle image with Distress Oxide ink tones and misted the ink before stamping. That created a „watercolour“ image. After the background was dry, I added some patterns with yellow oxide ink and finished the card off with black stamped sentiments and a few enamel dots.
It´ s a special card that will need a recipient who „gets“ the denglish expression :-). I hope all is good at your end and your week started in a nice way. Fall is here, so I´ m a bit sad, like every year, because I already miss summer. But I will just have to craft the sadness away.
Hello and happy Monday! Today I´ m sharing a another clean and simple card, created with Klartext stamps. For this one I used the „Folg deinem Herz“ stamp set with the super cute Summer Vibes P13 papers.
One of the papers had these cute stripes in pastel tones that exactly fit the width of the stamp sentiment, so I used it to my advantage and added a stamped and embossed sentiment in every second line with a matching embossing ink tone.
It really made the backgroud so much fun and also interesting for the card recipient. I hope it makes them smile, when they read the words. For a focal point I chose two ephemera pieces from the Summer Vibes collection and added some stamping to the signs as well. There I used Klartext „Moon“ and „Handgemacht“ stamp set with black stamp ink. In the end I just adhered everything on place and the card was done. Easy!
Wishing you a good start into the new week!! xxx, Sanna
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 and happy Sunday! Today´s share is a card I created using my newly bought Klartext stamps. I really, really like their stamps very much and might have bought myself a few, when they had their summer sale going on :).
I´ve got stamping in black and grey ink tones on the background, then a layer of Distress inks in two pink tones, then some white embossing powder images on top. And some two toned embossed vellum hearts with some Nuvo Drops and a crazy pink heat embossed sentiment on black background.
I love the brightness and cheerfullness on this card. It´ll make a great card for cheering someone up!
