Forever and always – Dani Peuss

Hello lovelies and happy Thursday! Today I am stopping by to share yet another wedding card with you. This time in pink tones. This card too, has a gift card pocket inside it.

I again used the Dani Peuss July kit papers for this card. The pink paper on the backgroud is from the kit. The other papers are from my own stash and older, but since the colours worked so well together, I used them.

The die cutting is again done using Elizabeth Craft Designs dies and the chipboard piece is by Wycinanka.

I also added some silver peel-off stickers to the background for additional detail and layered everything else on top of them. I also sneaked in some flower stickers from my older stash which also worked so well with the rest. I love adding and combining old with the new (also fits the wedding theme very well ;-)..) to my cards.

Inside the card there is plenty of room for wishes and the gift card. As you can see the Dani Peuss kit papers go a long way on a slimline card.

I also added plenty of half pearls to the card, because they make the card even more festive. I just hope now that the recipients will love the card.

Here is also a quick flip-thru video on the 3 recent cards I created – hope you like it:

Hope you liked what I shared and got inspired by it! I enjoy making slimline cards so much at the moment. I haven´ t done a mixed media card in a while – I wonder if I could still do one ;-). But I think it is very healthy to change the routine from time to time – otherwise it will all get boring.

Have a great Friday and see you during the weekend again with some more project shares.

To have and to hold – Dani Peuss

Hello lovelies! Today I am sharing another slimline card with a gift card pocket inside. This time it is a wedding card.

On the front I have used a green paper from the Dani Peuss July Kit as the card background. These papers have the perfect size for slimline cards, by the way. If you tilt the paper, you have enough material to fill in 3 pages of the card (see how I used the same paper inside the card in the photos later).

For decoration I used some older stickers and papers, as well as Wycinanka chipboards, from my older stash. The die cut dies I have used here are by Elizabeth Craft Designs. I have plenty of layers on top of each other here to create a really romantic cluster of leaves, pearls, ribbons and stickers.

Inside the card I created a pocket on the left side to place in a gift card or even money and punched the border with a Martha Stewart border punch. Remember how we used to collect these quie a few years ago? I have been trying to incorporate old product and “old” tools (do tools get old/go out of fashion?) into my recent cards. They still work like a dream and if the embellishments match too, why not use them?

The cream toned paper is by Prima Marketing and also from my older stash, but as the color worked togehter so well, I used it here.

I really like how this card turned out. It is festive for sure, so I am hoping the recipients will like it too.

See you soon again with another wedding card share!

Maternity leave – card

Hello lovelies! Today I am stopping by to share a maternity leave card with you. I combined the Dani Peuss May paper-add-on-kit with some Elizabeth Craft Designs die cut dies from my stash and also incorporated an older Martha Stewart flower punch.

The papers, except the white cardstock which is from my stash, are all from the May paper add-on-kit by Dani Peuss. I love the blue paper, because it has various shades on the sheet and when die cutting you get various shades on one piece and the wreath looks more interesting, when put together.

For the leaves (die by Elizabeth Craft Designs here too) on the wreath I used a yellow paper from the May paper add-on-kit and the punched hydrangea pieces are the backside of the blue paper. The cool thing about the DP papers is that they are double sided: more versatility.

In the middle of the hydrangeas I´ ve placed a drop of vintage Nuvo Drops in blue. The light blue alphas are at least 15 years old and still work very well. I chose them, because the matched the colours of the card so well. All in all a very clean and simple card, but I love the color combination so much.

Hope I could inspire you abit today. See you again soon with more artworks!

Take care, xxx, Sanna

Zur Taufe

Hello lovelies! Today´ s share is another pocket gift card – this time for christening. I used a cute hippo die cut die for this card – hope you like the inspiration!

It is a slimline card in size again, because I think gift pocket cards just look more festive in this size. So what do you think about the hippo? I just love it! It comes with both girly lashes or can be done for a boy theme too.

I die cut the image from light blue cardstock and inked the edges with Distress Oxide Speckled Egg tone. The teeth and the belly is die cut from white cardstock. I first colored the nails, ears and toes with a blue alcohol marker and outlined with a black one, but wanted to add more shine to them, so I applied Nuvo Drops on top in the end.

The German sentiment “Zur Taufe” is from Tonic Studios, as is the hippo, by the way. The blue paper I used on the inside and as my background paper is, I think, a digi paper designed by The Nifty Pixel. It just worked perfectly with the overall look of the card.

On top of the blue paper I added a piece of white cardstock which I added stamping onto (a Stampin´ Up! stamp) with Distress Oxide. I inked the edges in a darker blue for more contrast, but just very lightly.

On the inside I used the same papers and added a business card holder pocket with a flap for the present to be added. Here in Austria it is a tradition to gift “Philharmoniker” gold coins for christening, so they will fit nicely into the pocket. On the right side there is enough white space for a nice greeting, too.

The pocket flap mechanism is an easy fold from light blue cardstock and on the business card sleeve there is a strip of double sided clear adhesive. After adding the coins it can easily be closed and the coins will not fall out even if you tilt the card.

I hope I could inspire you a little with this gift pocket card! See you again next week with more crafty shares! Have a great weekend,

Clean & Simple Slimline card – Dani Peuss

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I´ m sharing a clean and simple slimline card, created using Dani Peuss products and one of the new Klartext stamp sets. There is a video on this post about the new stamp sets and also about the paper kit I used on this card :).

I wanted to create a very simple card this time, just using small bits from the June-Kit (the banner by Maggie Holmes) and then stamped the “50” with the new “Wie Spät ist es?”-stamp set (translates to: how late is it?). I also used the sentiment set called “So viele Kerzen” (=so many candles) here and the gorgeous “Herbstmagie” papers – also a paper collection by Dani Peuss.

But first, here is a peek on the new stamp sets (for product links see the end of this post):

and this is the paper kit by Dani Peuss that I used on the card background:

For additional details I just added a few tiny Nuvo Vintage drops in blue and the card was ready.

This would also be a good card for a masculine birthday, because it´ s so simple in design. I hope you enjoy the videos and the inspiration! I´ m off to a long weekend and hopefully some sunshine and outside time.

Take care,
xxx, Sanna
