„Stenciled“ glitter background birthday card – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello everyone and welcome to my April card tutorial for and with Elizabeth Craft Designs. Today I´m sharing a very glittery birthday card idea with you.

Here is what I created:

For this card I used two tones of Silk Microfine Glitter and the Parrot die cut die as well as the Build Your Own Sentiments, set number 1.

I again recorded a full start-to-finish video on how I created this particular card. I hope you like it!!

I hope you got inpsired by this little card idea and get creative yourself!! I´ll be back with another guest design team spot project for Elizabeth Craft Designs again next month. See you then!

Until then, happy crafting,

Unboxing Day – The Wild Hare Kits

Good morning lovelies and happy 2nd of April! Today it´s again unboxing day over at The Wild Hare Kits today. I´m happy to be able to share my April kit with you all today :-). I was a bit afraid my kit would not arrive in time, as the shipping information did not update itself for at least two weeks, but then, suddenly on Monday, the postman pushed the parcel under our garden door (no personal contact allowed, you see).

This is my gorgeous, colorful, cheerful and happy kit. I wished for one like this. And it´s again spot on. I wished for a colourful, happy and cheerful kit for April. Little did I know when I ordered it, that we´d be sitting at home and distancing ourselves from everything. Now that it arrived, I am more than happy that I ordered this type of a kit.

Here are the videos, let´s start with English:

Here is the one in Finnish:

And last, but not least, the one in German:

I hope you enjoy the videos!! I cannot wait to start creating with this kit!! And there is also one more kit I received a few days back, my „long lost“ March kit. For those videos, just hop over to THIS POST and watch :). I´m planning on creating a minibook with that kit some time in April too, so stay tuned :).

And now to my lovely fellow WHK crafters, here are some direct links to the unboxing videos by them – enjoy!

I wish you all a lovely April and hope that thru staying at home we can „starve“ the virus out as early as possible. Stay home and stay healthy!

Lots of love,

STAMPlorations Stencil Challenge – April

Hello everyone and welcome to the April stencil challenge at STAMPlorations. Like always, anything is allowed, just as long as your project features a stencil.

Here is my take for this months reveal – another art journal page:

For this page, I applied Distress Inks thru the various STAMPlorations stencils (listed in the product line up at the end of the post) onto a pre-treated art journal page background. See, I always add residue colors and media to art journal pages and then work my way from there to a finished page.

I´ve used a stamp set designed by my very favorite Louise Nelson by AALL & Create to create the journaling and the additional stamped patterns to the page. I love Louise´s artsyness & style and to have a stamp set by her is just something special for me.

And then the stencils, they are all by STAMPlorations – how gorgeous are they together???!!! Love them!!! and the face, it´s one of my faves from the faces stencil line at their store. And Helen´s mark making stencil works so well with all the 5×5 stencils!!

Now is your turn again, join the fun with us and create something for the challenge and don´t forget to play by the rules! Then you are eligible for prizes too!!!

Read more over at the STAMPlorations blog and hop over there for the full reveal (= more inspiration 🙂 ).

Happy stenciling,

I´m planning on creating a minibook using this kit some time in April.

Doesn´t matter – I´m still looking forward to creating with his kit, so stay tuned for more 🙂

DIY stamp corners for a stamping tool

Hi there everyone! I am dropping by with a quick project I created with my husband on his 3D printer. The project is meant for my stamping purposes *grin*.

I do quite much stamping and use a stamping tool (similar to Misti) quite much. I got this tool while I was on a design team a few years ago and what I was missing were magnetic stamp corners. This way I can stamp repeatedly on exactly the same spot, when making a series of identical cards.

So I asked hubs to help me out with his cool 3D printer :). As a result I now have DIY stamp corners for this stamping tool. I even made a short video about the process – hope you like it! All the tech info is available on my YouTube channel – just see the description part of this video.

I already have further ideas swirling in my head that could be made using his 3D printer :D… so stay tuned for more projects to come *giggle*. But don´t tell him quite yet… we don´t want to stress him beforehand…

Happy crafty times,
xxx, Sanna
