Waiting for the water to boil – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello lovelies! It is again time for another Die Cut Design Team challenge over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog. This time we were challenged to make „Anything but a Card“! So my choice was a layout. I haven´t been making as much scrapbook layouts recently as I would have liked to, so this was the perfect challenge to finally make one. Here is what I created:

This layout has plenty of Elizabeth Craft Design product on it, starting from the White Soft Finish Cardstock as a base. Next I added strips of the new ModaScrap papers onto the bottom and the top. I used the Viaggi Vintage and the Thinking about Polynesia 12×12 inch collections on this scrapbook layout. Then I added some heat embossed (white) sentiments from the Dream Sentiments set by Joset Designs.

A layer of Tattered Angels Aquamarine Glimmer Mist makes the heat embossed images really pop. After that I die cut ModaScrap leaves from Soft Finish Cardstock and then misted those with various Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist tones (Aquamarine, Marigold, Graphite, Suede and Grumpet). I also used some Java Glimmer Glaze (the black splatters) and Simply Sheer Soft Peach as well as Baseboard Gravel spray ink tones on the leaves.

I also die cut some of the letters on the title, then misted those with grey Glimmer Mist tone and added stickers and other alphas to go with those. I then added some stamped stars and rhinestones into the middle of the flowers.

I finished the page with hand written journaling and some faux stitching along the edges. Here is a start-to-finish video for you to watch to give you a better idea of the steps.

And now, hop over to the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog to see what the other design team girls have created for this challenge. For today’s challenge Elizabeth Craft Designs are giving away two sizes of the Clear Double Sided Adhesive which will include: a pack of the 5” x 12” sheets and a 10 mm roll of tape, in addition we will also give away a pack of the new ModaScrap 12” x 12” Viaggi Vintage Patterned Paper Pack to 3 winners.

To enter simply leave a comment on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Challenge post and tell us „Besides the classic card, what are some project ideas you like to play around with?” We will select 3 lucky winners in a random drawing. The winners will be announced on Friday, June 9 on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog.

Wishing you all a happy, crafty day and lots of inspiration from the team!
Happy crafting,

Happiness ATC set – STAMPlorations Stencil Sunday

Hello lovely people, it´s again time for another STAMPlorations Stencil Sunday. How about some „May Flowers“ themed ATC´s for this Sunday´s post? With lots of color, layers and happiness :). Remember, last month I did a set themed „April Showers“, so I thought I might as well add to the theme and do „May Flowers“ this month :). Here they are:

And this time I decided to make a little star-to-finish video to go with the set:

I really like how these artist trading cards turned out & I can´t wait for summer to finally arrive. I am missing sunshine, swimming, sitting in the garden and watching flowers bloom and just relaxing in the sun. Who´s with me? 😉

What I did is I first added a layer of Distress Paint, then some stamping and after that added a spray ink toned paste thru the Daisy Play (one of the newest stencils at the STAMPlorations store) stencil. Finally I added some product from my older stash to embellish the ATC´s.  Here are some close-ups of the ATC´s:

Here´s to a hopefully gorgeous and sunny June :). Hope you all have a lovely Sunday!!!

Valentine tag

Hello everyone, it´s time for another Tag Tuesday :). This time I would like to share a Valentine´s day tag I made a while back. This again is one of the projects travelling with the Elizabeth Craft Designs booth.

I´ve used a grungy black and white paper on the Background and die cut the arrow, the word Valentine and the feathers from patterned paper. Then I added a layer of Glossy Accents on top of those elements to create some dimension.

Quickly before the Glossy Accents dried up, I poured some Silk Microfine Glitter on top of the feathers for additional shine and let that layer dry. A ribbon and some gems for decoration and this tag was done in no time. In the end I also added a faux stitching along the edges for more detail. That´s it!

Happy creating,

Hugs card

Hello there, everyone!!! Today I´m stopping by to share another quick and easy to make card with you! This time I´ve combined some Elizabeth Craft Designs die cut dies and stamps with a STAMPlorations stencil. This is how my card turned out:

This one was again quite easy to make. I first doodled the raindrops thru a ARTplorations raindrop stencil with a white gel pen onto the light green paper. Then I die cut the Chevron Background from a pink patterned paper and adhere it on top of the stenciled paper. A stamped clear stamp sentiment, so pearls, paper flowers and a die cut, misted rose finish it all off.

Have a wonderful day!!
Stay creative,

Celebrate Christmas Tag – Elizabeth Craft Designs

   Stamped Christmas tag - Sanna Lippert Hello everyone, today I´d like to share one last Christmas project for this season with you. I created a blue-red-white colored present tag with Elizabeth Craft Designs products and I hope it will make it´s recipient happy. This background is so much fun to make!

Here is what I did:

Stamped Christmas tag - Sanna Lippert

Take the „Winter Sentiments“ clear stamp set and using a waterproof stamp ink, stamp the word „joy“ repeatedly onto the background.

Stamped Christmas tag - Sanna Lippert

Now take a light and darker blue and a red marker and start coloring the words by starting with the red, then going over to the lighter blue and finishing the third word with the darker blue tone. Then repeating this order until all the words are colored. This creates a pleasing pattern for the eye.

Next die cut the word „Celebrate“ from a piece of ivory toned cardstock. Using another sentiment from the „Winter Sentiments“ clear stamp set, partially stamp only the word „Christmas“ with a black ink. Then fussy cut it and color the piece with the red marker.

Then cut a piece of blue felt and adhere the die cut and stamped words onto that piece. Attach the felt onto the tag with a stapler. Fussy cut a deer image and adhere onto the tag with paper glue. Attach a ribbon on top and embellish with wooden stars which you can color red with the marker. Add a touch of glitter glue on top for additional sparkle.

Be Merry – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello everyone, I am up over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog today with a little Christmas deco piece. I was lucky enough to come across some small alterable light bulbs and I have been thinking of creating little Secret Santa pieces with them for friends and colleagues.

Sanna Lippert - be merry home deco piece

These lightbulbs are great since they are made out of relatively thick glass and have a flat bottom, so they stand alone and are not too fragile to be used as decoration in the household. You can even unscrew the cork and fill the bulb with whatever you prefer! Here is what I came up with:

Sanna Lippert - be merry home deco piece

Step 1: I first took some mini art stones and filled the lightbulb with those.

Sanna Lippert - be merry home deco piece

Step 2: After adding the mini art stones I mixed some mica flakes and bulk glass glitter into the lightbulb. I then place the red wooden pearls carefully inside the lightbulb and closed the lid. Next I added some white cord around the lightbulb for additional interest and adhered the little star embellishment with a piece of 3D foam on top. This is what the base looks like when finished:

Step 3: After the base was done I strung a piece of white wire thru the light bulb cork and formed it into a place card holder form on top to hold the die cut piece later. I also decorated the lightbulb cork with some half pearls for a fun detail.

Step 4: Next I cut two stars with the Entwined Ovals die cut set and two ice cream cones with the Joset Designs Ice Cream Cone die cut die set. When you flip the cone upside down, it looks a little bit like a Christmas tree!

Step 5: After die cutting the white cardstock, I misted the ice cream cone with green spray inks and it immediately looked like a Christmas tree. I glued the pieces together and adhered the stars to the tree. Next I wrote a sentiment onto a piece of white cardstock and cut it into a banner and adhere that to the tree.

Step 6: I then adhered some white half pearls onto the tree and colored them red with a marker. In the end I added some glitter glue onto the star to make it more shiny and then placed the finished Christmas tree on it´s place.

While creating this piece, it occurred to me, that the lightbulbs would make really great place card holders for the Christmas dinner table. I might need to get a few more to complete that idea too!! Hope you enjoyed this home deco step-by-step and get inspired to create!!!

Happy crafting,

Christmas card set – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello everyone, it is my turn over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog today again. How many Christmas/Seasonal cards do you send every year? I need quite a big pile for friends and family each year and it has become a tradition to make sure they are all handmade and every single one is different. Quite a challenge, right? Here is a start – a set of four, now I only need 40-something more!

Christmas cards - Sanna Lippert

1. For the first card take a piece of Misty Mauve Soft Finish Cardstock and cut it into a size of 14,5 x 10 cm. Then take the A Way With Words – Noel die cut die and cut 3 pieces out of the Misty Mauve cardstock. Try to align the words in one line symmetrically underneath each other. Next take a piece of white Soft Finish Cardstock and attach a piece of old book paper onto it using Clear Double Sided Adhesive. Then again gut 3 A Way With Words – Noel die cut pieces from that paper. Now adhere the Misty Mauve cardstock onto a white card base. Then adhere the old book paper Noel die cuts into the middle and use tweezers to adhere and fill in the open spaces with the leftover pieces of the Misty Mauve cardstock. This is a little time consuming, but worth the effort. Finally apply white ink splatters onto the surface. Let dry properly and then attach a matching ribbon.

Then take Rosebud and White Soft Finish Cardstock and the Winter Mittens die cut set and cut the ribbon and the solid mitten pieces with the Rosebud tone and the upper pieces from the white Soft Finish Cardstock. Adhere onto each other either using Clear Double Sided Adhesive before die cutting or using a good paper glue afterwords. Decorate the mittens with glitter glue and adhere them onto their places. Finally take a sentiment from the Winter Sentiments die cut set and stamp it onto a piece of white cardstock. In the banner with pink Distress Ink and attach to the card with a stapler. The second card is finished.

Color it light blue with a spray ink and let dry. Take the Through the Lens – Wood paper pack and die cut the Sled from the wooden paper. Take a piece of old book paper for die cutting the poinsettias and the leaves. Stamp a sentiment with Winter Sentiments clear stamp set onto a piece of old book paper with black stamp ink and fussy cut along the edges. Attach a piece of hemp cord onto the sled and ink the poinsettia and the leaves with red and green Distress Ink. Adhere the blue background paper onto a white card base, then adhere the sled and the flowers on their places. Decorate with gems, adhere the sentiment on it´s place and outline the card with a black pen.

Christmas cards - Sanna Lippert4. For the fourth card again cut a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock into a size of 14 x 10 cm. Place it inside the Flower Mosaic embossing folder and run it thru your die cutting machine. Next take the smallest Entwined Circle die cut die and cut a piece of green felt with it. After that stamp a Winter Sentiment onto white cardstock and color the background with light green Distress Ink. Fussy cut along the lines. Next all you need to do is to adhere all the pieces onto their places and decorate with a felt bow and some cork stars.

Christmas cards - Sanna LippertYou can of course create sets of each card while you are at it. That way you will be done with your Christmas card creating in no time. I will need to come up with more cards, so I bet you will be seeing a few more popping up also over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog too!

november2016challenge

Here is what I created for the reveal:

Sanna Lippert - thanksgiving die cut die card

I used lots of Elizabeth Craft Designs dies for this card.

Sanna Lippert - thanksgiving die cut die card Sanna Lippert - thanksgiving die cut die card

I first took a piece of white cardstock and cut it into a size of approximately 14×10 cm. Then I placed it into an embossing folder and ran it thru my die cutting machine. Next I applied some orange and lighter green Distress Ink tones onto the background. After that I took a piece of eco dyed fabric, adhered that onto the background and added a piece of twine around it. Then I die cutted some mushrooms (by Joset Designs) and inked them with Distress Ink. After adhering those on their places, I added a stamped sentiment (Stampin´ Up!) and inked and outlined the banner before adhering the sentiment onto the card. Finally I added some grey and black ink splatters and a puffy sticker.

This is my take on the Thanksgiving theme. I hope you find the time to join in with us this month!!! Hop over to the MMCC blog to see what everyone else created!!

Happy crafting,
Sanna

Clean and simple cards – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Sanna Lippert - CAS die cut card set

Hello everyone, today I´m sharing a set of clean and simple (and fast and easy) cards with you hare on my blog and over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog! I got inspired to create these card, when I was organizing my stash and stumbled upon some paper clips. A stamp set from Joset Designs and some Els van de Burgt Studio paper and Speech Bubble Edgy Options dies is all I needed. Here is how I created the cards:

Sanna Lippert - CAS die cut card set

1: Let´s start with the first card. Take a sheet of Through the Lens – Metal paper and use one of the Speech Bubble Edgy Options die cut dies to cut the paper into two pieces with a die cutting machine.
2: Fussy cut a small white banner and white a sentiment on it with a black pen. I used the sentiment „you´re a good hang“, as I used a coat hanger paper clip on the card. Attach this piece with a brown brad onto the die cut paper piece. Adhere the Through the Lens – Metal paper onto a white card base.
3: Wrap some twine around the upper portion of the card. Using a white gel pen add a line and some dots for decoration. Finally use the Winter Sentiments clear stamp set to stamp a sentiment onto the lower right corner of the card. Your first card is done in less than 10 minutes!

Sanna Lippert - CAS die cut card set

4: For the second card repeat the above steps and add some black faux stitching around the card base with a black pen. Add some puffy stickers to the stamped black sentiment for a fun detail. Since the paper clip on this card is an airplane, I added a hand written banner sentiment around that theme to be combined with the „let´s have some fun“ stamp sentiment. The second card is also done in no time!

Sanna Lippert - CAS die cut card set

5: For the last card, die cut another Through the Lens – Metal paper set sheet and adhere it to the card base.
6: Now stamp a Winter Sentiment with black ink onto a separate piece of white paper and fussy cut it into a banner form.
7: Ink the edges of the sentiment banner and adhere to the card. Add enamel dots for decoration.
8: Take a piece of white paper and ink only the word fun from the Winter Sentiment clear stamp set and stamp it three times onto the paper. Hand draw a speech bubble around the stamped words and fussy cut it. Adhere the dog paper clip and the DIY speech bubble onto the card. Add faux stitching around the edges with a black pen. This card is also finished in no time!

Now you have a fun set of card and depending on what kind of embellishments and/or paper clips you choose to use, you can create fun card sets. The Winter Sentiment stamp set works for other purposes and occations too, as you can see. I hope you get inspired to try out the fun Speech Bubble Edgy Options die cut set with some of the stamp sets in the store and create funny cards for your friends and loved ones!

Sanna
