Cute Christmas cards

Hello everyone and happy Sunday! Today I´m stopping by to share one more set of Christmas cards, this time again, created with Christmas papers by Mintay Papers.

For this set, like on the previous ones, I used only little additional decoration. Just some ribbon or a tiny resin snowman and a cute doily. I didn´t want to cover the beautiful papers too much, as they are very pretty on their own.

I´ve also again added some Nuvo Drops here and there onto the cards for additional sparkle, but that is pretty much all I did. I just adore these papers so much on their own :).

Wishing you a lovely Sunday and hope I could inspire you a little today. Happy crafting,

Stenciled easy to do Xmas cards

Hello and happy Thursday! Today I´m sharing a set of easy to do Christmas cards you just need a few minutes for.

Just grab a piece of leftover paper, some Nuvo Embellishment Mousse a stencil and a blending brush of some kind. Then apply the mousse with the brush thru the stencil onto the leftover piece of paper. Let dry.

Now outline the pattern with a white gel pen for a fun detail and the adhere the paper onto a card base. Add either a stamped sentiment, some embellishments like the Rudolf on my card, some ribbon and/or fussy cut Christmas themed decor. That´s it! Really fast and easy. And the mousse also adds a really nice shine to the card, when it´s tilted (see above photo).

And these too are not too thick to be put into an envelope and mailed to a loved one.

Wishing you a great Thursday!!! xxx, Sanna

Birthday cards

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I´m sharing a set of birthday cards with you. There are again done using very old Basic Grey papers. I´m still stash busting, as you can see.

I´ve just pretty much layered the papers and the chipboards on top of each other and added a stamped sentiment. Stamp is by Elizabeth Craft Designs, by the way.

I still have a few pieces of this paper left, but I´ve basically busted one block of 12×12 paper so far from this collection, so I´m very proud of myself. So today, it´s basically „wordless Wednesday“ as there is not much I can say to these cards :). Hope you like them, tho :).

Happy crafting,

December Stencil Challenge STAMPlorations

Hello and happy December! It´s again beginning of a new month, so that can only mean it´s time for another STAMPlorations Stencil Challenge reveal. Yay!!!

Here is my card for the December stencil challenge reveal:

Remember this video I shared about my new stencils? Well, I shortly also show how this look can be done on that video, so if you are interested, here is the link to the video.

In fact, creating this card was really easy (a good idea to keep in mind, when you need to make plenty of cards?). I took a piece of white cardstock, placed the Christmas Wreaths stencil on top and first inked thru the whole area with green Distress Ink (yes, also the berries in green). Next I took a text stamp (old from my own stash) and stamped with black ink thru the stencil over the leaves. This creates the cool look. Then I removed the stencil and took some liquid pearls and added the dots on top of the green areas. The green areas worked as markings, in a way. For finishing touches I added the clear sentiment sticker (also by STAMPlorations) into the middle and mounted the white piece onto a green cardstock that I folded into a card using a score board. Easy peasy (and fast)!

Be sure to stop by the STAMPlorations blog to see more inspiration by the lovely design team girls and then play along with us!! Please remember to play by the rules if you want to be eligible for the prizes!!! And other than that, have fun creating!! Looking forward to your creations!!

Happy stenciling,

Christmas cards with Very Much Merry collection – Studio Tekturek

Hello lovelies!! Did you know that Studio Tekturek has a lovely new collection out, called „Very Much Merry„. So this year, Christmas is going to be very pastellic toned. I love the designs. Especially the Santa journaling cards and the tiny Xmas tree paper!

I got this super cute paper in the works and I ended up creating a big pile of Christmas cards with it! A total of 11 cards for starters. Once I got started, I could not stop!

Here are the first four cards. Those Santa´s make me smile!! And the cute journaling cards are perfect for a December Daily, but also make a really nice detail on a Christmas card! I wanted to concentrate on the paper and leave them space to shine, so I kept the decoration very simple.

I did also make some shaker cards, by die cutting a Christmas tree from the patterned paper and filling the shaker part with various tones of confetti. Rest of the shaker cards I kept really simple, just adding the patterned paper and a little sentiment sticker.

I´ve also added some Nuvo Drops on top of the shaker Christmas tree windows. This adds a fun detail to the trees – almost like baubles.

The green and blue snowflake card have the patterned paper peeking thru from the background and an inked piece of white cardstock is on top. I especially love how the tiny Christmas trees are peeking thru behind the snowflake. The other cards I really clean and simple in style. I wanted to make them that way to get the papers stand out more. They are so beautiful on their own, that they really do not need much decoration at all. Some Nuvo Drops and stamping here and there and that´s enough in my opinion.

I´ll be sharing more projects, created using these papers very soon. I cannot wait to create Christmas present tags with this collection!! And also cannot wait to send these cards to friends and family :)!!!

Check out the Studio Tekturek STORE and spread the word about their lovely designs. It´s a small family business who can use all the support they can get, especially during these difficult times with lockdowns and social distancing!! Be sure to check out their store for more collection and designs and follow them on Insta.

See you soon with even more projects!! Happy crafting!
