Hello and happy Tuesday! I´m stopping by to share another stash-busting project with you. I have boxes full of stickers and various embellishments that I have been saving for “that special occation”. Who is with me here? It´s horrible, isn´t it? If you don´t use the product that “special day” will just never come!!! So I´ve stopped hoarding! I am slowly reducing my stash at my studio. And it will probably take LOOOONG until one even can notice a difference *rollingeyes*.
So don´t be like me, don´t hoard :). Use that lovely product up when you buy it! Trust me. That is the best way.
For this card I´ve used some pretty old stickers – I honestly even don´t know who they were by. Anyone recognize these? All I know is that they are old.. But they still made for a cute birthday card, right?
Oh, and this new art of photo setup is a gorgeous plate I purchased from the lovely Tulü Porzellan in Vienna. Do check them out, they have the most gorgeous kitchenware and to very reasonable prices! And no, I don´t get any money for saying this – I just really like their products :)!
So because it´s old product, I´ll add you similar ones to the link list, just in case you want to create something similar. It´s a really easy idea. Some patterned paper on the background and then 3D stickers and die-cuts and a stamped sentiment.
Hello and happy Sunday! Today I´m shortly sharing the next faces of my personal #the100dayproject2021 challenge. Like mentioned before I´m drawing a face a day on a pre-prepared, die cut tag. If you want to follow me face drawing journey „live“, you should follow my Instagram account (here). And you can also watch the videos directly on my YouTube channel (here).
My take on face drawing is an artsy, abstract one. I am not trying to learn how to draw realistic faces, because at the moment a) it is not my interest and b) I don´t think I am very good at that type of drawings. But this type of mixed media face drawing just interests me very much and I also enjoy it a lot!
This was a fun set to draw! I really felt so much more confident drawing these 5 faces and adding details, shadows and shading. I also noticed that I like to do shading in “strange” colours. It doesn´t have to be realistic at all! And I really am addicted to drawing with Neocolor 2´s, too. Also, I hadn´t drawn any faces with glasses so far, so I really enjoyed adding them to a few here.
So be sure to come back to take a look of the next 5 :). I wish you all a wonderful new week!!!
Hi there and happy Saturday! Today I´m stopping by to share a a VERY PINK clean and simple card made out of all kinds of bits and bobs left from kits, packaging and happy mail.
For this card I used a backgroup paper gifted to me by Donna (thank you!). The sentiment piece is from a Bramble Fox acrylic shape packaging and the other pieces are from a Wild Hare Kits kit from my time at their design team. I just love how this turned out! The flamingo got a bit of glitter on it (done with Nuvo Drops).
And the amazing plate I´ve displayed my card on is from the awesome Tulü Porzellan store in Vienna. Do check them out if you are in the area! Such a nice store with such pretty kitchenware!
I hope you have a gorgeous weekend, everyone! Here in the Vienna region we have a heat wave. First it was crazy cold and then suddenly it´s +34 degrees. I´m trying to stay inside due to the heavy pollen exposure at the moment. My allergy has been sooo bad this year.
Hello and happy Tuesday! Have you played along with the STAMPlorations challenges yet? No? Well, there is still enough time to join in with us!! For some extra inspiration, there is again a bunch of lovely work up over at the STAMPlorations blog to get inspired by.
Here is what I created for the reveal:
For this card I created a gelli printed background image with Dina Wakley heavy body paints using my stencil (available at STAMPlorations) called Art Flowers.
After creating the background paper, I cut it into size and took the residue piece to stamp and fussy cut the flower petals out of leaves from the STAMPlorations “Bloom Doodles” stamp set and added a clear sticker (also by STAMPlorations) to the card. Very simple and easy, but thru the background colours, the card is really cheerful and bold.
Hello and happy Thursday! Today I´m back with another clean and simple card share using a Pinkfresh Studio / Altenew stamp and die set with my stencil design from STAMPlorations.
I´ve used the “build a flower” stamp set and then die cut it with the matching die to create the flower. For the background I used Distress Ink in Speckled Egg tone with my RagRug stencil. The stamped sentiment is by Stampin´ Up! And the dots are done with Nuvo Vintage Drops. Very clean in style, but I just love the white space here!
Today would have been my dad´s 81st birthday. He has been gone for 29 years now. I´ve spent 24 of those years abroad. Today I´m again thinking about him on his birthday. Thus a birthday card share for today. I hope you have a good one, dad!
