November Stencil Challenge reminder – STAMPlorations

Hello and Sunday! Have you played along with the STAMPlorations Stencil Challenge this month yet? No? Don´t worry, there is still enough time. To bring you to stenciling mood, the DT girls have again put up a reminder post over at STAMPlorations blog.

Here is my take for the reminder post:

I used the new „Onions in Raws“ stencil – see this video for more details on why there is a new version – for the background.

For decor I used older ephemera from my stash and added a stamped sentiment into the middle using the Party Time clear stamp set. This is also available at the STAMPlorations store.

There is still time to join the November challenges! I hope you do! Just remember to play by the rules, if you want to be eligible for the prizes! Other than that, have fun creating!! Looking forward to seeing your creations!!

Also throughout November there is a great offer at the STAMPlorations store! If you buy product worth total USD 10,- (after discounts and before shipping), you get to choose one product from the store worth upto USD 7,- for free!! How cool is that??

Also remember that my discount code is still valid, so take advantage of the 20% discount!!

Happy stenciling,

Dude, you are so old

Hello and happy Saturday!! How are you doing? I´ve been organizing our closets during the past weekends, because it was about time and it´s a good activity during the pandemic in my opinion. It´s kind of addictive too! I´ve been influenced by Marie Kondo and that method has taken over our closets. And it feels so good!!

Now to today´s card:

I did this one for a colleague at work – he is turning 50. He has a great humour, so I could put this type of card together for him. This was so much fun to do!

The background is done with Dina Wakley gloss sprays (in spring during one of her FB lives). I just used it as a card background and added some stenciling on top (STAMPlorations stencil) and decorated the card with a Tim Holtz paper doll, that got a red clown nose and then I added the stamped sentiment. I had a great time creating this card!!!

And today, again, I had been organizing clothes. I´ve gathered quite a pile of stuff that I am partly going to donate, partly sell and some of the stuff has already been donated to close family and friends. Feels good to give those things away and for someone else to find joy in them. I cannot wait to organize more!! It might be spring by the time I´m thru with every drawer in this house, but at least I´ve spend my time doing something good inside these walls.

See you tomorrow with a Christmas tag tutorial, so be sure to stop by this space then :). xxx, Sanna

November Stencil Challenge – STAMPlorations

Hello and happy November!!! New month means a new Stencil Challenge and here is my take for the November Stencil Challenge reveal at STAMPlorations.

This card is made using a white card base on which I mounted a misted, stenciled old book paper. For misting I used various Dylusions sprays with one of my new stencil designs, called Abstract Prehistoric Life.

After mounting the dried book paper onto the card base, I just added very little decoration. The Panda bear figure and a hooray sticker from my older stash. I love the look, it´s like the panda bear is in the middle of colorful leaves.

Now is your turn to play with stencils and submit your projects here. Please don´t forget to follow the rules if you want to be in for the win ;-). All rules and even more inspiration can be found at the STAMPlorations blog. Also throughout the month of November, if you order at the STAMPlorations store for a total of USD 10,- (total after discounts and before shipping), you get to choose an in-stock item at the store with a value up to USD 7,- for free. How cool is that offer?

Also, like always, do take advantage of my discount code at the store:

That´s it for today. I hope you will take advantage of this fabulous offer and also join the November challenges! Cannot wait to see what you create for them :).

Happy crafting,

Belated STAMPlorations 7th Birthday party – day 5

Hello and happy Friday and welcome to the 5th day of STAMPlorations belated Birthday Celebration. Today we again have a ton of inspiration prepared for you showcasing the fabulous product STAMPlorations has to offer. Also, if you stop by the DT girls blogs and leave comments, create a project and link up our STAMP stash photo, you can win some awesome prizes!

For this card I chose a colour I don´t use that often: purple. I wanted to use this particular color for this type of theme, because I think it works well. The idea of this card is pretty similar to the one shared yesterday, but it still looks very different because of the color choices.

I used purple and light pink Distress Ink tones and matted the stenciled white cardstock piece on dark purple cardstock. I really, really adore this Flair stencil and the stamp used here is again a new one from the Bloomfully 4×4 stamp series at STAMPlorations.

Now hop over to the Day 5 post at STAMPlorations blog. There are plenty of prizes for grabs and a linky party going on. Also be sure to create a celebrations themed project and link it up! Lovelies, come and comment and link and play along!!! It´s a party week at STAMPlorations!!

All products in the store are 10% off instantly throughout October. PLUS if you use my design team discount code: STAMPGIRLSANNA upon checkout when ordering, you will get this not-yet-released stencil called „Just Plaid“ for free!!

I hope you have enjoyed the STAMPlorations birthday celebration throughout the week and gotten inspired to play with stamps and stencils. I´m keeping my thumbs up for you on the prizes :)!

It´s such a joy and honour to be able to be part of the STAMPlorations family. Let´s keep this small family business going strong by supporting them :). That way there can be many, many more birthday celebrations to come! Happy 7th STAMPlorations and Shery!!! Wishing you lots of company birthdays to come!

Happy crafting, everyone!

Belated STAMPlorations 7th Birthday party – day 4

Hello and happy Thursday and welcome to day 4 of STAMPlorations belated Birthday Celebration! Today we have again plenty of inspiration prepared for you, so I hope you visit the blogs, leave comments and join in on the fun! Remember, there are plenty of possibilities to win some awesome prizes too!

For today´s post I´ve prepared not one, but two inpirational projects. One is an art journal page and the other is a slimline card.

https://stamplorations.blogspot.com/2020/10/belated-birthday-4.html

My first project is this colorful rainbow toned slimline card featuring the new Fanned Slimline Stencil. I love this one so much! What I did for this card is a used a yellow cardstock as my card base and mounted the white cardstock piece (which I had inked with Distress Inks thru the Fanned stencil first) on top. For a focal point I chose to ink a piece of white cardstock in orange tones and add faux stitching around the edges and a stamped sentiment from the new Bloomfully Series clear stamp.

For my second project I did an art journal page onto a piece of canvas in my black Ranger art journal. I used plenty of my new stencils here: on the background as a negative image and on the circles I used the „positive“ image.

I love the crazy look of this page! Works really well together with the accompanying right page too. This you will probably recognize from the Stencil Challenge Reveal post ;-).

Now hop over to the Day 4 post at STAMPlorations blog. There are plenty of prizes for grabs and a linky party going on. Also be sure to create a celebrations themed project and link it up! Lovelies, come and comment and link and play along!!! It´s a party week at STAMPlorations!!

Also notice that all products in the store are 10% off instantly throughout October. PLUS if you use my design team discount code: STAMPGIRLSANNA upon checkout when ordering, you will get this not-yet-released stencil called „Just Plaid“ for free!!
