Belated STAMPlorations 7th Birthday party – day 5

Hello and happy Friday and welcome to the 5th day of STAMPlorations belated Birthday Celebration. Today we again have a ton of inspiration prepared for you showcasing the fabulous product STAMPlorations has to offer. Also, if you stop by the DT girls blogs and leave comments, create a project and link up our STAMP stash photo, you can win some awesome prizes!

For this card I chose a colour I don´t use that often: purple. I wanted to use this particular color for this type of theme, because I think it works well. The idea of this card is pretty similar to the one shared yesterday, but it still looks very different because of the color choices.

I used purple and light pink Distress Ink tones and matted the stenciled white cardstock piece on dark purple cardstock. I really, really adore this Flair stencil and the stamp used here is again a new one from the Bloomfully 4×4 stamp series at STAMPlorations.

Now hop over to the Day 5 post at STAMPlorations blog. There are plenty of prizes for grabs and a linky party going on. Also be sure to create a celebrations themed project and link it up! Lovelies, come and comment and link and play along!!! It´s a party week at STAMPlorations!!

All products in the store are 10% off instantly throughout October. PLUS if you use my design team discount code: STAMPGIRLSANNA upon checkout when ordering, you will get this not-yet-released stencil called „Just Plaid“ for free!!

I hope you have enjoyed the STAMPlorations birthday celebration throughout the week and gotten inspired to play with stamps and stencils. I´m keeping my thumbs up for you on the prizes :)!

It´s such a joy and honour to be able to be part of the STAMPlorations family. Let´s keep this small family business going strong by supporting them :). That way there can be many, many more birthday celebrations to come! Happy 7th STAMPlorations and Shery!!! Wishing you lots of company birthdays to come!

Happy crafting, everyone!

Go after your dreams

Such a good reminder for the end of the week, right? Happy Friday and remember to start moving towards your dreams, bit by bit, even if they are just baby steps you take per day. When you look back a year later, you will be proud of yourself!

I know I am. I have „grown“ so much during the past year. I think it´s the age and all the trouble I´ve been thru. I´ve slowly developed a „be kind, but take no sh..“-attitude. I am feeling so much better because of it. And no, I have not changed into an angry old lady, no, I am just setting boundaries!

Here is a card for today:

It´s pretty easy to create, but still pops, if you know what I mean? It´s the glitter and the purple I think. A great combo. I used a STAMPlorations stencil (slimline) for this card and Nuvo green glitter paste. I love that stuff :).

The flower is mounted on white cardstock, because of it´s see-thru-nature. That way it stands out better. And the stamped sentiment is from a STAMPlorations stamp set.

Next week will be exciting! The STAMPlorations belated 7th birthday week is coming up so be sure to follow it. Plenty of fun and also prizes to be won :).

Wishing you a fabulous weekend!

Good vibes only! – Studio Tekturek

Hello everybody and happy Tuesday! Today I´m again very excited to share my Studio Tekturek September project (and video) with you!! I really love how it turned out and totally adore the candy colours of the Strawberry Shake collection!!

This is the page I did! I had such a great time creating it. The colours might say summer, but I think they work so very well for many other themes and seasons too. Like everyday scrapbooking themes :)!

I´ve again recorded a video for you to watch. It shows the whole process from start to finish. I hope you enjoy watching it :).

Basically almost everything on this layout is from the Studio Tekturek Strawberry Shake collection, except for some embellishments and the Distress Inks, stamps, as well as the white paper.

I hope this layout inspires you to give Studio Tekturek a try. Follow their Facebook page for more details on where to buy their collections and see their Instagram site for more inspiration!

I will be back in a few days with another project that was inspired by this layout, so see you on Thursday again ;-)!!

Happy scrapping,

Happy Birthday Nancy!!!

Happy Friday!! Today I´m sharing a special post with you. A fellow DT member, the ever so lovely Nancy has a very special birthday and I am joining her birthday celebration linky party with this card.

This linky party is organized by Stamping with Loll! Thanks for the heads up Loll and Monika!! And now to the birthday girl herself:

Dear Nancy!! With this card I am wishing you lots of happiness, laughter, health and many, many amazing moments to come! You have a special place in my heart as you love stencils at least as much as I do. You know I love your artworks so much. I am so honoted and happy to be able to congratulate you this way. Have the happiest of day and I hope you get spoiled by your loved ones (hope you can party abit despite the pandemic circumstances..). Sending you lots of love,
xxx, Sanna

This card was done using lovely STAMPlorations products, well, because Nancy is a DT colleague at STAMPlorations, so she´d be expecting nothing less, I assume ;-). Also do read Loll´s blog post, because there will be many more people joining in on her celebration – you could even join in yourself (read more on Loll´s blog!!)

It´s a strange time to have a special birthday (I know, because I just had mine), so I think this linky party, organized by Loll, is a fabulous idea!! Thanks for organizing this, Loll!

All the best,
Sanna

Smile card

Hello and happy Sunday!! Today I´m just quickly stopping by to share a clean and simple card with you. This one is created with older product and pieces that I was gifted with. Only the sequins are from my newer stash.

I have been very busy creating projects with my new stencils (see here). But I cannot share those just quite yet. Thus I´m doing stash-busting with older product to reduce the piles of paper and embellishments that keep piling up in my studio!

Therefore I´ll leave you with this card today. The butterflies are a present from my friend Lizzy (thank you!!). And the sticker I believe to have received from my friend Ali a while back. Rest is my own stash (Nuvo sequins and organic/natural paper from my older stash).

I used a sewing machine to attach the butterflies to the background paper (proud of myself there, as I am not very fond of sewing machines!).

Wishing you a great start into the new week! Mine will be special as I am turning 5+0 next week – yes, I am THAT old *giggles*! But there will be no big party this time around due to the pandemic regulations. Hopefully I can celebrate with friends and family some time next year (would be nice to see them again)? *fingers crossed*

Happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna
