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!
Hello and happy Saturday! Something I haven´t done in a looooong time happened: I SCRAPPED! 🙂 I used plenty of the gorgeous Studio Tekturek (mainly Sweet Summertime collection) papers and Klartext stamps. They had a sale in their store a while ago for their stamps and I might have ordered myself a few of them to play with. This layout is all about a construction site in our garden this year and the „Vorsicht Baustelle“ set is perfect for this photo.
We had this very old garden shed from back in 1930´s or so in our garden and it has seen some really great times, but to update the garden abit it had to come down. This photo, I must admit, really broke my heart, because it had been standing there for such a long time and probably would have stood another 50 years still, hadn´t the wood worm decided do make it his home.
Since it´s a very sentimental photo for all of us, I really wanted to do a layout around it. The Klartext „Attention, Construction Site“ stamp set if perfect for this purpose. It says all there is to say. And if you have watched the „Fixer Upper“ by Joanna and Chip Gaines, then you know all about demolition day feelz ;-). And we did feel abit like that on this particular day in May.
It´s been an interesting ride with the construction site so far as there has been delays due to delivery problems. Can you imagine there is a shortage of wood… we had to wait quite a while to get ours. And I even got to drive a minidumper, by the way, and it was REALLY FUN! But more on that later :). I punched circles from various Studio Tekturek papers and then stamped in black and grey ink tones with the Klartext stamps. The red and blue ink splodged are done with Distress Oxides.
I hope you enjoyed reading a bit from our project and got inspired by the layout. I´ve got a few more shared coming up, so stay tuned :). xxx, Sanna
Hello and happy Sunday! This is my take for the Day 22 at the Ugly Art Club´s #tuac5minchallenge. It´s August and the weather feels like it´s October already. What happened to summer??
I feel like this lady today – I really don´t care about fall and winter arriving at all.. I want summer back :-).
I love my roller cutter with what I can do these wonky tags. Base is a mix up of all kinds of residue bits from gelli printing and stenciling = a good starting point. On top some Dina Wakley gloss spray, a vintage image and a hand drawn leaf piece fussy cut from a leftover stenciled paper.
See you tomorrow, hope your Sunday is fab! xxx, Sanna
Hello and happy Saturday! Like I mentioned yesterday, it has been a rough week this week at work. And I´m afraid it´s going to be a few more until it get´s better again. Therefore, I felt drawn to a more „dark“ piece today. To get all the stress out of my system. This is day 21 of The Ugly Art Club´s 5 min challenge:
I used plenty of Dina Wakley gloss sprays on the background with wiped off Distress paint (from a stencil) with a baby wipe on the background. I love the dark and random patterns. A piece of residue paper worked as a base for a hand drawn silhouette. Some dried out baby wipe made for a perfect ruffle and base for a fussy cut sentiment.
This piece made me feel so much better. Hope your day is a good one! xxx, Sanna
