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.
Hi, it´s that time of the month again, so today I´ll be sharing my last September The Wild Hare Kits project with you and include a wrap-up video of all this months projects, created with this kit. Also, in the video I´ll be sharing what´s left of my kit after finishing all the layouts/cards etc.
So here is my last September project – a set of cards again.
I adored the Shimelle Sparkle City stickers that were in my kit, but didn´t find a perfect sport for the cars and the cute pigeons, soooo I used them on cards instead. I love, love, love my purple and pink toned and water color look kit to pieces!!! If you can´t remember, my kit consisted of „Just A Little Lovely“ collection and Shimelle´s Sparkle City collection. Also a Carta Bella stencil called „Garden Geometric Stencil“ came with my kit.
So what I´ve done is I first added some stenciling onto every card base using Distress Inks with a blending brush. Next I fussy cut some papers to create a background/cluster to the card. Then I added the stickers on top. Some are adhered directly to the paper, others I adhered using 3D foam pads.
For additional interest I added either black ink splatters or stamping with black stamp ink (using roller sentiment stamps mainly – those are from my own stash) or I combined both :). I know I´m repeating myself, but I love the pastellic colours and the purple and the watercolor look of my kit so VERY much!!! Thanks Allison, for this amazing kit! It´s kinda scary how well she „gets“ me already..
And now for the wrap-up video – I hope you enjoy it:
I really enjoyed my September kit! It was perfect in every way! I know I said I´m going to do a journal with the 6×8 papers, but that is how it goes sometimes, eh? First you have an idea when unboxing the kit and in the end you end up creating totally different kind of projects with the stuff :).
So for next month I´m planning a mini.. let´s see what happens :-). See you soon (on the 2nd of October!) with the October unboxing video!!! Excited to see what kind of kit is waiting for me in October.
Helllo everyone, I shared a teen boy birthday card two days ago and while I was at it, I made a second card in a similar style.
This one is a little bigger in size, measuring 5,5 x 5,5 inches. For this card I´ve again used the Lattice stencil from my STAMPlorations stencil line, but this time applying the blue and green colour in a more random way and also fading the color towards the edges of the card.
Fior decoration I again used some older stash stickers to create the focal point and some banners on the upper right corner. I stamped the sentiment using hashtag stamps by Tim Holtz and added the number 16 (Thickers) into the middle. For additional decor there are again some Glimmer Glaze splatters as well as Nuvo Confetti Stars here and there.
I really enjoyed creating these simple cards a lot – haven´t been doing any masculine cards for a while..
Wishing you a lovely day and happy crafting,
Helllo and happy Friday! Christmas eve is just around the corner and today I am sharing my last Christmas themed tag for this year with you:
For this tag I again used the Magnificent Magnolia stamp set to create the background for my tag. I simply took the leaf pattern stamp from the set and repeatedly stamped the image with embossing ink onto the background. Next I poured some golden embossing powder over the stamped areas and heat set the powder with a heat gun.
After that I inked the white tag with Bundled Sage Distress ink and added a frame sticker as a focal point. I decorated the frame with Harvest Moon Glitter Accents and adhere the bird sticker into the middle using a 3D foam underneath it. This way it is more dimensional. I then added Nuvo Glaze drops onto the wings and poured some Ice White Pure Sheen Nuvo Glitter onto the glazed areas. I let that dry properly and then wiped any loose glitter off and added some Harvest Moon glitter details there too. For finishing touches I added a word Noel, created with stickers from Basic Grey and bound a matching ribbon to the tag. I really like the combination of the stamped image with the bundled sage colour on the background. It makes it very elegant and festive looking.
That´s iit for this years Christmas themed tags. In January I´ll start sharing tags again, but this time with another theme :).
Hello there, and happy Tuesday. Today I´m stopping by to share a Christmas present tag with a special centerpiece.
I got this medaillion from my crafty friend Tina and I´ve been saving it for a special occation. I created this tag with the embossed blue paper that was in the Tonic Craft Kit No. 6.
I started by die cutting the paper with the Tonic Mixed Scalloped and Straight Edge Rectangle Layering Die Set using only the straight edge dies with the blue paper. For the white cardstock piece is changed to the scalloped edged die cut die.
I then just decorated the tag with some older product from my stash, like the button, the twine and the border sticker. i used the medallion from Tina as my centerpiece, misting it with Tattered Angels Icicle Blue spray ink (see the video here).
For finishing touches I added some Ruby Slippers Nuvo Drops here and there.
This present tag will go together with the card I made previously or I can use them separately. That´s it for today, hope to see you tomorrow when I share another Christmas Card Wednesday card.
