Happy Birthday!, Vol. 3.0

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I´ve got another birthday card share for you. For this card I´ve used tiny leftover pieces from my previous Elizabeth Craft Designs card project and arranged them as my background to the card.

So everything get´s used around here at the moment. For decor I got some lovely chocolate packaging paper from my son´s girlfriend (see the gorg green bits) and I added some beautiful Sassafras stickers as a cluster to the card.

Also some Nuvo Drops for decor and a stamped sentiment with a Stampin´Up! stamp on top. I really like the pastel toned background with the sticker cluster. A fun on to do, too!

Wishing you a gorgeous mid-week! xxx, Sanna

Happy Birthday!, Vol 2.0

Hello and happy Monday! Here is another card, created using some old bits, combined with newer product :). I love the Studio Tekturek papers so much and they work so well together with my older Sassafras stickers! Eek! Two faves together :)!

On the background I have some stamping going on done with black ink. There are again from Stampin´Up!.

And I again managed to sneak in a button from my huge button collection. Gosh, I have so many… And those glass beads, I think I have like a thousand of those too. But they look really pretty on that blue patterned paper.

This is really close to the card style I used to do back in 2009ish. And it´s fun to do cards in that particular style again.

Have a great week! xxx, Sanna

Happy Birthday!

Hello everyone and happy Friday! Today I´m sharing another clean and simple card, but this time combined with products from Studio Tekturek and STAMPlorations.

For the background I again used the newer Studio Tekturek papers and for decor I added the new paper goods by STAMPlorations from their new paper goods line. And in between I´ve added some stamping with black stamp ink.

I also managed to sneak in a few older products *LOL*. See the tiny cloud sticker? It´s by Sassafrass and the button is from my never-ending-button-stash :).

I had fun creating this card. Wishing you a fabulous weekend!!!

January Stencil Challenge – STAMPlorations

Hello and happy 2021!!! I think the most of us are happy to see 2020 go, right? Let´s celebrate that with a brand new STAMPlorations January Stencil Challenge, shall we?

My card matches the mood – A celebration card for saying my goodbyes to 2020… ;-). Even our Christmas tree got the pandemic mood as it started dropping it´s needles on 24th already. Never have had that happen ever before! And our gingerbread house also fell apart on it´s own during the holidays. Never hat that happened ever before. 2020 has been a horrible year. I am glad it´s done now. Here´s to hoping that 2021 will be a better one!!! We are on lockdown (3rd one already) while I write this, so the start is not any different, but hopefully the vaccination will do the trick and we can retourn to a more normal life at some point.

For this card I used the new, modified „Rag Rug“ stencil. It´s slightly bigger than the original design, so it´s easier to cut. Therefore, if you purchased the previous one and were wondering, how come this looks so much bigger, that is the simple reason. Also, there will be only this version of the stencil available at the STAMPlorations store from now on.

I first inked the background yellow and then after placing the stencil on top, applied various distress ink tones thru the stencil onto the background to create the overall look. For decor I added some older stickers, a few sequins and for finishing touches, a stamped sentiment.

Now is your turn! Let´s make 2021 special and have fun with the stencil challenges at STAMPlorations. Remember to play by the rules (listed at the end of the challenge!) to be eligible for the prizes and have fun with this months challenge! Cannot wait to see what you make! Happy 2021!!!!

Happy Stenciling,

Party! card

Hello lovelies! I am still on my stash busting journey and I made this easy-to-do card with some older product from my stash. I combined two of my faves – Sassafras product and stenciling.

So here is a fun card for a birthday party and/or invitation. This one is really very simple to do. Just place a stencil onto the card base, add two tones of Distress Ink thru it and then decorate with stickers, buttons and sticker alphas! And you can even add some Nuvo Drops for additional fun, if you want. That´s it!

I have piles and piles of stickers I still want to use up – also pleeeenty of buttons in my stash. So it´s good to use one or two here and there! And that monster is perfect for a childrens party theme, right?

That´s it for today. Come back on Friday to see another card that I am sharing here.

See you,
xxx, Sanna
