Go after your dreams

Such a good reminder for the end of the week, right? Happy Friday and remember to start moving towards your dreams, bit by bit, even if they are just baby steps you take per day. When you look back a year later, you will be proud of yourself!

I know I am. I have „grown“ so much during the past year. I think it´s the age and all the trouble I´ve been thru. I´ve slowly developed a „be kind, but take no sh..“-attitude. I am feeling so much better because of it. And no, I have not changed into an angry old lady, no, I am just setting boundaries!

Here is a card for today:

It´s pretty easy to create, but still pops, if you know what I mean? It´s the glitter and the purple I think. A great combo. I used a STAMPlorations stencil (slimline) for this card and Nuvo green glitter paste. I love that stuff :).

The flower is mounted on white cardstock, because of it´s see-thru-nature. That way it stands out better. And the stamped sentiment is from a STAMPlorations stamp set.

Next week will be exciting! The STAMPlorations belated 7th birthday week is coming up so be sure to follow it. Plenty of fun and also prizes to be won :).

Wishing you a fabulous weekend!

Celebrate shaker card – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello everyone! I experimented with a shaker card idea recently. For this card I combined the Basic Rectangle dies with the Flower Burst Background die by Elizabeth Craft Designs – creating a „shaker window with a pattern“.

I die cut several layers of frames first and then did one background die pattern from the same paper. All the steps are in the video, so for details, check it out at the end of this post :).

And for fillings behind the acetate layer I added plenty of confetti in various tones. I figured, this could be a Christmas card, because of the colours. And everyone loves a little confetti for a festive season (at least in a sealed environment, like inside a card :)…).

I love using the Elizabeth Craft Designs background dies so much. Joset does a great job designing them. And confetti can also be my friend, if it is not flying around everywhere, but instead closed safely inside a card :). So I´ve also officially started my Christmas card production of 2020 with this card then – it´s about time, it´s already mid October!!

Have a great weekend and happy crafting!

Groovy

Hello and happy (groovy?) Monday!! I missed WCMD (World Card Making Day), but hey, I actually DID make cards that day. Only, that the projects will be shared to a later date :-D! So to do some belated WCMD celebrating, I´m sharing a fun card I created past weekend. It just makes me smile and who does not need a smile on a Monday?!

I just love how this card turned out. It´s nothing complicated, really, but it´s the look on his face with the red nose enamel dot and the sentiment „groovy“ that brings a wide grin on my face. Hope it does on yours too!!?

So it´s again Monday and it´s going to be another tough week, but I hope to bring some happiness and joy to you with this card. I love the colours too. The background is from a a Dina Wakley Collage Collective book and the stenciling is done with one of my stencil designs „Winter Flowers“ using a Nuvo Embellishment Mousse in pink. The man is from people sets by Tim Holtz and the sentiment is written by my lovely friend Lizzy. And the enamel dot is my older stash.

Can´t wait to give this card to someone special! And I need to mention here that I definitely do need a day between Sunday and Monday. It always seems that the weekends are too short, by the time I have got my energy levels up for all kinds of fun stuff, it´s again Sunday and time is running out.. Anyone else with me on this?

Hope you have a great week with lots of crafty time, beautiful fall weather (hopefully sunshine!) and nice long walks between all the work crazy.

Happy crafting,

Good vibes only! – Studio Tekturek

Hello everybody and happy Tuesday! Today I´m again very excited to share my Studio Tekturek September project (and video) with you!! I really love how it turned out and totally adore the candy colours of the Strawberry Shake collection!!

This is the page I did! I had such a great time creating it. The colours might say summer, but I think they work so very well for many other themes and seasons too. Like everyday scrapbooking themes :)!

I´ve again recorded a video for you to watch. It shows the whole process from start to finish. I hope you enjoy watching it :).

Basically almost everything on this layout is from the Studio Tekturek Strawberry Shake collection, except for some embellishments and the Distress Inks, stamps, as well as the white paper.

I hope this layout inspires you to give Studio Tekturek a try. Follow their Facebook page for more details on where to buy their collections and see their Instagram site for more inspiration!

I will be back in a few days with another project that was inspired by this layout, so see you on Thursday again ;-)!!

Happy scrapping,

Happy birthday card

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I´m dropping by to share a crazy colored one layer birthday card. The background being so bold in color I wanted to add just a little bit of detail and also try a one layer card idea. This is what I ended up creating:

For the background I took a watercolor paper and dabbed Tonic Studios Shimmer Powder onto it, then sprayed water mist on top and let the gorgeous colours just blend, spread and dry. I love the strong colours – they look so delicious!

After that I grabbed a Elizabeth Craft Designs stamp set and stamped flowers and branches onto the background as well as a birthday sentiment. After that I added some random Nuvo Drop details and that was it! A bold and colorful card for a color loving person!

That´s all for today! Hope your week is getting along nicely.
