It´ s going to be ok

Hello and happy Wednesday! We had a day off yesterday (Austria´ s indipendence day) , so we started into a “false Monday” today, therefore I am sharing a card with a “meaningful” sentiment.

This again is a card that resulted from my resent studio clean-up! I found these bits of paper that I had done eight years ago (!!!) and put them on my table to finally use them. Here is the result. An old ink dauber stamped background piece with brand new sentiment stamping on top. Stamps by Klartext. Then a piece of patterned paper underneath, some golden sequins and Nuvo Vintage drops on top and voilá! The card is done.

It is so good to use up bits and pieces and turn them into fun cards. Someone receiving this card will then have the possibility to just pick up the most suitable sentiment for their current mood from the list. I thought that might be a fun card to send to someone who needs a smile or some cheering up.

By the way, here is the video, from where the stamped piece originates:

Tomorrow is already Thursday and we have almost survived this week. I am freaking out that is almost Christmas time again. How come time seems to fly with super speed nowadays?

70th birthday card

Hello and happy Tuesday! Today I´ m sharing a comission card, created for someone´ s 70th birthday. I should use seasonal colours, preferably orange, it should have flowers and be of slimline format. Here is what I did:

I used Tonic Studios number dies, a STAMPlorations (my stencil line) stencil, a Klartext stamp and a Gonis lace cream paste with a decor mat. Here are some close-ups:

I tried to keep the card as flat as possible, but still do nice layers and texture. I hope it will be to the recipients liking.

Wishing you a good day tomorrow! We have been working like crazy on our construction site the past weekend and days and are getting along really well… as we also should, because winter is coming soon!

Just for you

Hello and happy Sunday! Today´ s card is again a card that started off from a leftover background piece like the one I did yesterday and the post before that! For this one I again used leftover rhinestore swirls and a Elizabeth Craft Designs stamp set called “Hugs“.

This one was also very fast and easy to do. I just used the background as it is and then added the stamped and fussy cut sentiment on top with 3d-foam pads and decorated everything with rhinestone swirls.

Very much white space, lots of clean and simple, but oh so fun to do!
I hope your Sunday is full of crafty fun times and relaxation!

Jingle all the way

Hello and happy Saturday! Today I have been up very early to help my hubby with the construction site and getting the garden ready for winter. There is progress, so it´ s been a good day. And due to my crazy studio clean-up, I used up some leftover bits and this is one of the cards that resulted from the clean-up:

Now I did a video (back in 2013!!!) on how I created this background (and a few more with ink daubers) and can you imagine I found this piece 8 years later and now it found a perfect spot on a Christmas card :). The only thing I needed to do was to add some Nuvo Glitter Drops and a Elizabeth Craft Designs sentiment with black ink and the card was done! Here is the video from back then:

Such a fun card for this years holiday season! I might make a few more with other colours too. And flat to put in the mail too!

I hope you enjoyed today´ s creative share. See you soon again!

Wish big

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today´ s share is a quick and easy-to-do card. I have been taking a little pause from the blog because of a) I had a flue and b) I had been organizing my crafty space. But today I´ m stopping by to share something I created from found scraps and old bits + a new stamped image.

I spent two days just organizing my area and boy did I find lots of product I had totally forgotten I even had!!! And the clean-up was LONG DUE! I found this leftover piece of a stencil print and it was so cute I could not throw it away. So I did a birthday card instead!

In the middle I have a Sue Smith stamp (by Elizabeth Craft Designs) that I stamped with black ink and then fussy cut and adhered on place with 3D-foam pieces. Some old (who remembers these still?) rhinestone swirls for decor and the card was done!

I really like the simplicity of this card. Hope your day was a good one!! See you soon again – I might have a few more destash-cards to share the next days :).
