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,

Baby card – Tonic Studios

Hello and happy Friday!!! Like promised yesterday, I´m back with another baby card share today again. Here is what I did:

This card is a personalized one, because of it´s recipient. Also there was supposed to be a giraffe on the card and rather green tones than blue ones.

I´ve again used the Garden Gate Layering Die Set by Tonic Studios for die cutting the frame. Parts of it are made from patterned paper, one part is from white cardstock that I inked with green Distress Ink tone and an ink blending tool. The stamp image is from my older stash of stamps. I colored it with Stampin´ Up! markers. The alphas are also old and by Sassafras. And the various green papers are also from older stash of mine. The Nuvo Drops I´ve used, are the tone Bottle Green. I´ve rounded the edges with a corner chomper, by the way.

I really like how the card turned out. Hope the recipient is happy with it too!

See you soon again with another type of projects.

3rd Stencil Reveal

Hello everyone!!! Today I´m very excited to be sharing my 3rd stencil release with you guys!!! I´ve got 5 new stencils coming out and on the following video you can take a look at the newest designs…eeek! I´m very excited about this release!!!!

I hope you enjoy my new stencils and give them a try yourself!!! Here are some projects, created with the new stencil, for additional inspiration :).

This card and the one underneath were created with the Art Flowers stencil using tinted structure paste and Nuvo Embellishment mousse. The clear stickers I´ve used on these cards are also by STAMPlorations. I love using them on my cards!!!

This one is done using the Onion in Raws stencil with Nuvo Glitter Paste. Also again featuring some of the clear stickers from STAMPlorations….and some of my beloved Sassafass stickers I have been saving for a special occation.

On this card I used the Retro Hearts stencil with Distress Inks and some stickers from my older stash. The stamped sentiment is from the Party Time STAMPlorations clear stamp set.

This softer toned card is done with spray inks using the Tapestry stencil. I really like this pattern on the card background.

And these two are done with the Peacock Feathers stencil. On the upper one I´ve used Distress Inks, then Distress Paints on top and outlined all with a black pen. For the lower one I´ve used only Distress Inks in various colours and then added some stamping with the For the Birds STAMPlorations stamps. Could not resist to add some Nuvo Drops onto the cards also.

Here is another Retro Hearts stencil creation. I´ve first inked thru the stencil with Distress Inks, then applied some Nuvo Glitter Paste on top thru the stencil again. This adds nice texture to the card.

For this butterfly card I added Distress Inks in pink, yellow and orange thru the Tapestry stencil onto the background. Really, really like this color combination with the pattern.

I could not resist and created a card with Distress Inks using the same technique like on the above card, but this time with Art Flowers.

And also did the same with Onions in Raws stencil on the following card. I added Sassafass stickers to go with the background as I found them very suitable for the fun, colorful background. The stamp is by STAMPlorations too (see full material list at the end of this post).

For my last card I just basically wiped all ink from my ink blending tools into a piece of residue paper starting with the Tapestry stencil and the layering the Retro Hearts on top of the previous pattern and adding orange Distress Ink thru it onto the background.

So that´s it! That is my 3rd stencil release with STAMPlorations. I hope you like the video, the ideas, the cards and the new stencils. For more details on my new and older stencils, go to the STAMPlorations store HERE :).

Happy stenciling,

Artist Trading Card set – Zuckersüß

Hello there and happy Thursday!! Today I´m sharing a fun set of artist trading cards. I have been using up residue pieces of paper from my older stash and these 3 ATCs are a result of „destashing“ too. I call this set „sweet as candy“. I am/was a huge Sassafras fan and I have been saving and hoarding their papers for the past years in my stash. I still have quite a few „treasures“ from their paper collections in my stash. There bits are leftover strips from a paper I used ages ago.

I just coudn´t throw these cute ducks and the yummy ice cream cone patterns into trash, so I used them to create some „sweet as candy“ ATCs. Some of the papers are older Webster´s Pages lines and there are also Basic Grey flags and tags here and there.

The stamps are again by „Klartext“ and really go with the papers so very well. These ATCs were so much fun to make and I adore the „oldish look“ of the papers.

That´s my project share for today. Do come back for another project on Saturday. And if there is anyone who would like to swap these, do leave me a comment or pm me via my social media sites.

Wishing you a great day!

Card share day again

Hello there, today I´m again sharing a few cards with you. There I also created while playing around with my Misti stamp tool.

For the first one I´ve first added a layer of Tattered Angels spray inks in blue, green and purple tones. Then I´ve used the Nathalie´s Studio „Wired“ stamp on the background. After that I added some circle stamp images (by Finnabair) and finished the surface off with embossing enamel (vintage pink). I added some wooden letters for additional interest (colored with Tattered Angels spray ink).

For my second card I first added a full set of clear alpha stamps onto my Misti in a very random order. I stamped a few times to get a full and even coverage – that is what the Misti is very practical for – you will always end up with a perfect stamp image at the end (and no-one knows how many times you fussed around until the image looked the way you want 🙂 …). Next I sprayed the background with blue Glimmer Mist (Tattered Angels) and finally added lots of Sassafrass (I have been saving and saving these for ages!) stickers (some are adhered with 3D foam for a more dimentional effect). There is also some wood veneer in there (always love to use wood veneer!!!) and some golden thread. The wood veneer heart-formed speech-bubble is filled with frills (available at Elizabeth Craft Designs). I thought it might add an interesting detail to the card. And then, finally, a Tim Holtz hashtag word finishes the card off.

Happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna
