Clean and simple Christmas cards

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I´m up with another set of Christmas cards, this time in clean and simple style. I´ve used some of the gorgeous STAMPlorations stencils on these to create the patterns.

See? Very simple and easy card ideas! I took a piece of red patterned paper (leftover piece that was on my table ;-)..) and placed the stencils on top. Then I took a blender brush and applied the golden Nuvo Mousse thru the stencil on top. After the mousse was dry, I outlined the patterns with white to make them better stand out from the background.

For the third card I used Ivory Coast Nuvo Crackle Mousse thru a STAMPlorations stencil. As a base I used a dark red cardstock piece. For decor I added some felt and wooden stars and into the middle I added a stamped sentiment. Easy peasy!

On the other cards I just added little details, like a STAMPlorations clear sticker and a wooden reindeer piece (who has a Nuvo Vintage Drop red nose, by the way ;-)..). For the other cards I just added a in brown stamped Christmas sentiment on a piece of white cardstock and inked the edges a little to give it a vintage look. The star is wood veneer combined with a star sticker. So only very little details, lots of red and a little gold with white. Very christmassy in my opinion!

Christmas card set

Hello and happy Saturday!! Today I´m sharing a set of pink toned Christmas cards with you. I created these using the Mintay Papers Sweetest Christmas collection from last year.

When using such gorgeous papers, the cards really don´t need much additional decoration.

I decorated the cards with only a little bit of various Nuvo Drops tones and added STAMPlorations Clear Stickers as a sentiment to each card.

Other than that I added just a tad of ink onto one card, the others just have the Nuvo Glitter Drops and Clear Stickers as decor. So if you need easy to do cards, take a gorgeous patterned paper, just add some stamping or sentiment stickers and a little glitter and the cards are good to go! If you want a little more effects, fussy cut some pieces and add them with 3D foam to the card. That way you get more dimension.

Wishing you a lovely day! xxx, Sanna

Joy to the world

Hello everyone and happy Monday! Today I´m again filling my stash busting goals with this card! I´ve got a whole sheet of snowflake stickers used on this one. Yay!!

For the background I used my snowflake stencil that had some residue ink on it, so I misted it and pressed the ink onto a piece of white paper. You can barely recognize the pattern here and there, but I still really like the subtle look. After adding the STAMPlorations clear sticker sentiment and the super old snowflake stickers from my stash (yay to stash busting again!), the card turned out pretty nice.

That´s all for today! How are you getting along with Christmas cards this year? I have a few made, but I think they will not be enough, so I need to make a few more still.

Hoping your day is lovely!!! We are again on lockdown light in Austria and it´s starting to get to me. I miss my people! I´ve been really good the whole time so far since March, keeping the circles very small and all, but I miss seeing friends and loved ones. And who knows how long this will go on!! I think the winter time makes it even harder. Going to be along wait until spring arrives and we can at least enjoy our garden again, if nothing else.

Hoping everything is good at your end during this crazy time. Take care and stay safe!

Stencil challenge reminder – STAMPlorations

Hello lovelies and welcome to the June STAMPlorations stencil challenge reminder post! Whew, what a sentence!! 🙂 Without further ado, here is my take for the June reminder post:

I again created a double spread into my art journal. The theme of these pages is: The Story of Living Things. I bought an old book about „living things“ a year ago from a trift store. I thought now was a good time to start using it!

During the social isolation the nature got a well deserved pause from us humans and this art journal is a „hommage“ on all living things, except us humans.

On this page I used glossy paint and spray ink on the background. It created a faux wooden pattern. On top are clear stickers from STAMPlorations as well as white texture paste applied thru one of my stencils. The birdies on a branch are by STAMPlorations as well as is the stamp set I used to stamp it with. The leaves are hand drawn on old book paper and the text is from the trift store book.

For the second page I used white paint and spray ink on the background to create a resist area. Then I stamped with STAMPlorations stamps onto the background and added a green tinted texture paste thru one of my stencil designs around the edges. The focal point of this page are the flowers, stamped on an old book page, then misted and highlighted with Posca pens.

I really enjoyed creating this inspiration spread for the reminder post! Now is your turn. There is still plenty of time to play along. Remember to follow the rules and have fun with this months challenge!!! Can´t wait to see what you create!

Happy stenciling,
xxx, Sanna
