Dream Big! – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello everyone and happy Friday! Today I´m sharing another The Wild Hare Kits layout with you and this time again with a process video.

For this layout I´ve used the November monthly cut file which is a leaf pattern. I´ve arranged it onto a piece of white cardstock into a wreath form and the cut it with my Silhouette Cameo.

So I used both the positive and the negative pieces of the cut file image and the paper. I left the negative background piece white and added spray ink splatters here and there for interest and the leaves got a spray ink treatment in the same colours. Then I arranged the inked leaves onto the background piece and decorated everything with sequins and 1canoe2 Willow collection die cut shapes.

The paper on the background is by Pink Paislee, form their Again and Again collection (paper No. 6). For finishing touches I´ve added lots of Spiegelmom scraps sequins – the Wild Hare Kit exclusive ones that came with my kit. Also the title is created using the Puffy Alpha Stickers by American Crafts. These alphas also came in my kit.

So the only thing I´ve used outside from my kit were the spray inks and the white cardstock. Everyting else was included in my kit. And this time I´ve recorded a process video for you to watch too. Hope you like it!

I hope you get inspired by this layout idea and scrap a little yourself! If you are interested in trying the Wild Hare Kits, just hop over here and fill your personal style profile. And once you get your kit, do tag us and use #thewildharekits, so we can find you and come and admire your projects!

See you soon with another project!

Simple Pleasures – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello lovelies and happy Monday! Today I´m sharing my first November Deluxe Kit project for the Wild Hare Kits. I´ve based my layout on the November sketch. Here it is:

This sketch is so great – I loved it the second I saw it. I used the Heidi Swapp Honey & Spice Harmony paper on my layout and added some stenciling, created with the Heidi Swapp stencils that came with my kit. Also I decorated the photos with 1canoe2 Willow collection Die Cut Shapes which were also part of my kit. And for finishing touches I added plenty of Spiegelmom Scraps The Wild Hare Kits exclusive sequins.

The stamping on my layout is created with the Carta Bella stamp set from my August kit. For the stenciling I´ve used Distress Oxides and Distress Inks to create the two-toned look.

And this month I again have more time which means I can record videos to go with my layouts again. So here is the process video of the layout, hope you like it:

Have you played with the Wild Hare Kits monthly sketches yet? If so, we´d love to see what you create, so do tag @thewildharekits on social media, so we can find you and come visit!

See you soon with another The Wild Hare Kits kit project!!

All the best – Tonic Studios

Hello lovelies, today I`m again sharing another Tonic Studios product based card. I am totally in love with the very delicate German sentiment dies which will be available in April. Here I´ve again used the „All the best“-one, this time with blue paper. I love how it really jumps off the card against the pink and gold toned background.

I´ve created the background by first stamping the rose images onto white cardstock, then pouring white embossing powder on top and heat setting with a heat gun. Next I took a blending brush out and applied pink, green and golden Nuvo Embellishment Mousse tones on top of the embossed roses fairly randomly. The mousse blends really nicely with a blending brush and the embossing powder resists it really well.

That resulted in this resist technique background. After that I added the die cut sentiment which I adhered with the Nuvo Glue Pen again. Works really well!! For additional interest I cut the paper into strips leaving open areas in between the stripes, that way the white card base peeks thru those areas and creates a nice contrast to the card. For finishing touches I adhered some silver Nuvo sequins here and there.

That´s all from me for today. I hope you get inspired to try some of the techniques out yourself!!! See you soon with more projects, so hope you´ll drop by for more :).

Happy crafting,

Fall themed tags

Hi there everyone and happy Monday! I recently bought make-up blending brushes from SØSTRENE GRENE and found them very useful as blending brushes for crafting! So I experimented a little :).

I took some Indian Gold and Burnished Bronze Embellishment Mousse out to play and applied them with the blending brush onto a piece of white cardstock. And the results I got! So smooth, even application and the brush glides on paper like a dream.

Here is one of the results from that playtime –  a set of fall themed tags:

For this tag I die cut the Burnished Bronze tinted piece with an oval die cut die from Tonic Studios. Then I die cut a tag – die by STAMPlorations and inked that with the same brush, but this time using Ocean Blue Distress Ink. For decoration I dug deep into my older stash and added some lovely Basic Grey stickers, some golden sequins (Tonic Studios) and faux stitching with a white pen. For decoration I also added some Harvest Moon Nuvo Glitter Accents onto the rose design here and there. 

For the second tag I first die cut it (same die by STAMPlorations), then placed a stencil onto the tag (my Trees 1 stencil) and applied a heavy coat of the Brusnished Bronze Embellishment Mousse with the blending brush onto the tag. I let that layer dry before I went over the complete tag surface again, this time applying only a soft layer of the same mousse. Now you can see the Trees 1 pattern hues on the background, but the pattern is much softer and blends into the background. I really like how it looks! 

Next I again added a Basic Grey sticker from my very old stash on top for decoration. Then added some sequins (Tonic Studios) and some Harvest Moon Glitter Accents here and there. The tag got finished off with a October Afternoon (old stash) sticker that was outlined with a black pen.

Too bad you cannot see the amazing shimmer of the tags – but you get the idea from the very first photo. It´s gorgeous and looks quite noble.

This is it for today, do come by on Wednesday for another Christmas Card Wednesday!
Happy crafting,

Just believe – MMCC January challenge

Hello there! Time to share some extra inspiration for the Mixed Media Card Challenge blogs January challenge with you. This month you are requested to create a CARD with the theme beginnings and as an optional element you should use sequins.

MMCCHere is the card I created:

Sanna LippertAnd this is what I did:

Sanna Lippert I first added spray ink (green, pink and yellow by Tattered Angels) onto a piece of watercolor paper and let it dry.

Sanna Lippert Next I took a The Crafters Workshop stencil and applied Distress Ink thru the stencil onto the background. I used green, pink and orange ink.

Sanna Lippert After that I took the ink covered stencil, added some water spray onto it an then pressed the residue ink onto a second piece of watercolor paper.

Sanna Lippert While the second piece was drying, I took the first inked and stenciled piece and started to punch out stars with various sized star punches.

Sanna Lippert After the second surface was dry, I placed another The Crafter´s Workshop stencil over it and applied some Imagine Crafts Iridescent Turquoise texture paste thru the stencil onto the background.

Sanna Lippert This is how the pattern looks like after removing the stencil.

Sanna Lippert When the paste was dry I adhered the punched stars and some sequins with paper glue onto the surface and then added some Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze over the surface.

Sanna Lippert Next all I needed to do was to stamp a sentiment. I chose to use a Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz set called Crazy Talk. I used a black Distress Ink for stamping.

Sanna Lippert Finally I also added some random wood veneer pieces here and there for addtional detail and also added some black pen outlining to the sentiment and the stars to make them stand out more from the background.

I hope you will find time to join in on this months challenge with us! I love the MMCC blog´s challenges as you have lots of creative freedom in what way use decide to use the theme and optional elements. As long as it is a mixed media card, you are good to go! Have fun!

See you at MMCC,
