Forever and always – Dani Peuss

Hello lovelies and happy Thursday! Today I am stopping by to share yet another wedding card with you. This time in pink tones. This card too, has a gift card pocket inside it.

I again used the Dani Peuss July kit papers for this card. The pink paper on the backgroud is from the kit. The other papers are from my own stash and older, but since the colours worked so well together, I used them.

The die cutting is again done using Elizabeth Craft Designs dies and the chipboard piece is by Wycinanka.

I also added some silver peel-off stickers to the background for additional detail and layered everything else on top of them. I also sneaked in some flower stickers from my older stash which also worked so well with the rest. I love adding and combining old with the new (also fits the wedding theme very well ;-)..) to my cards.

Inside the card there is plenty of room for wishes and the gift card. As you can see the Dani Peuss kit papers go a long way on a slimline card.

I also added plenty of half pearls to the card, because they make the card even more festive. I just hope now that the recipients will love the card.

Here is also a quick flip-thru video on the 3 recent cards I created – hope you like it:

Hope you liked what I shared and got inspired by it! I enjoy making slimline cards so much at the moment. I haven´ t done a mixed media card in a while – I wonder if I could still do one ;-). But I think it is very healthy to change the routine from time to time – otherwise it will all get boring.

Have a great Friday and see you during the weekend again with some more project shares.

To have and to hold – Dani Peuss

Hello lovelies! Today I am sharing another slimline card with a gift card pocket inside. This time it is a wedding card.

On the front I have used a green paper from the Dani Peuss July Kit as the card background. These papers have the perfect size for slimline cards, by the way. If you tilt the paper, you have enough material to fill in 3 pages of the card (see how I used the same paper inside the card in the photos later).

For decoration I used some older stickers and papers, as well as Wycinanka chipboards, from my older stash. The die cut dies I have used here are by Elizabeth Craft Designs. I have plenty of layers on top of each other here to create a really romantic cluster of leaves, pearls, ribbons and stickers.

Inside the card I created a pocket on the left side to place in a gift card or even money and punched the border with a Martha Stewart border punch. Remember how we used to collect these quie a few years ago? I have been trying to incorporate old product and “old” tools (do tools get old/go out of fashion?) into my recent cards. They still work like a dream and if the embellishments match too, why not use them?

The cream toned paper is by Prima Marketing and also from my older stash, but as the color worked togehter so well, I used it here.

I really like how this card turned out. It is festive for sure, so I am hoping the recipients will like it too.

See you soon again with another wedding card share!

Folded pocket gift-card card

Hello everyone and happy July!! Today I´m again up over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog with another guest design team card project and tutorial. Here is what I created for this months post:

For this card I used the Planner Essentials die cut dies – I´ve always wanted to use them for cardmaking the moment I saw them. I also added some die cut dies from the Art Journal series as well as some of the ModaScrap ones (still adore them!).

The basic idea of this card was to create a folded card base that withholds a pocket, where one can tuck a gift-card. This particular gift-card was created using the planner dies. The papers are from my older stash (goes all the way back to 2005). But the dies, the stamps and the glitter and adhesives are all by Elizabeth Craft Desings. For steps and more details, do also hop over to the ECD blog to read my full post!

Here is the step-by-step video for you to watch – hope you enjoy it!

This card is very simple to make, once you have all the pieces prepared and it looks very presentative also. A perfect way to send a loved one greetings and a gift-card to say you are thinking about them!

I hope you enjoyed this months tutorial. I´ll be sharing more project here on my blog throughout July and be back at the ECD blog in August again.

By the way, since the papers I used for this card are partly very old and not available anymore, I tried to find you nice alternatives, just see the product links for that.

Until then, happy scrapping!

Clean and simple balloon cards – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello everyone, it´s my turn today again to share another card idea with you for Elizabeth Craft Designs. I always keep a box of cards for various occations ready and constantly keep on adding cards to the collection – you never know when you need a handmade card. These cards are an addition to my card box.

And here is how they were made:

Step 1: Take the Adventure Edges and die cut a piece of white cardstock with the cloud edge die. Now you have a DIY stencil ready to be used!
Step 2: Place the DIY stencil onto a piece of white cardstock and wipe blue stamp ink onto the background with an ink blending tool along the edge of the cloud pattern. Move a few centimeters down and create a second row of clouds. Repeat throughout the background.
Step 3: Die cut gras from green Soft Finish Cardstock with the gras edge die. Adhere on place overlappingly in layers.

Step 4: Take a piece of ModaScrap patterned paper from Fly & Scrap paper pack and die cut balloons from it. Adhere on place.
Step 5: Apply Clear Double Sided Adhesive onto a piece of light blue Soft Finish Cardstock and die cut the balloon strings and bows from it. Adhere on place.
Step 6: Stamp a sentiment with Build Your Own Sentiments 1 stamp set stamps and black stamp ink onto white Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut into a banner or use scissors for cutting. Adhere on place and the card is done.

For the option of creating glitter balloon cards, see the end of the start-to-finish video. Also the patterned paper balloon card steps are shown on this video.

I hope I could inspire you to create fun balloon cards and make several variations of them, while you are at it!

Wishing you all a great, crafty day! See you next month again!

Sent with love – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello lovelies and happy Friday & happy Valentine´s Day!!! Sending my love to all my friends and loved ones around the world!!! MWAH!! Since I cannot send a card to each and every one of you, I am sharing one here on my blog for all of you to see!

This one is a a clean and simple style card. I ´ve used ModaScrap paper on the background. Then added a die cut and inked heart with leftover negative heart pieces around the bigger heart piece.

Finally, I added stamping with black stamp ink and drew a faux stitching around the edges of the paper with a pink marker. That´s it! Really easy!

Add the products used on this card, except for the inks, are by Elizabeth Craft Designs. And the heart pieces are all leftovers from my other Valentine´s Day card project. Trying to get everything used up 🙂 – no leftovers here :).

Be sure to come back to my blog on Sunday, when I´ll be sharing another art journal page, that is part of my self-care theme for 2020.

See you then!
