Holiday card

Hello and happy Monday! Today´ s card share is another stash busting share and a holiday card of a different kind for someone, who does not like a traditional Christmas card.

I took my Neocolor 2 crayons and a water tank brush out and after applying the old silver stickers onto the paper, applied the crayons to create a watercolor look.

For the sentiment I used the Elizabeth Craft Designs Classic Christmas Special Kit´ s stamp set and Nuvo Drops for small details. For stamping I used the Distress Oxide Iced Spruce tone.

A simple holiday season card and I am proud to have used some older product again. Wishing you a good week!!

3 simple Weihnachtskarten mit Dani Peuss 12/21 Scrapbooking Kit

Hallo ihr Lieben! Heute möchte ich Euch ein paar simple Weihnachtskarten zeigen, die ich mit dem Dani Peuss 12/21 Scrapbooking Kit gestaltet habe. Die Vorweihnachtszeit ist zumindest bei mir oft sehr stressig, ob im Job oder Privat, und trotzdem möchte ich handgemachte Karten versenden. Deswegen sind oft die einfachen Designs die, die ausgesucht werden. Wer von Euch kennt das auch?

Zu dem Kit habe ich noch Klartext-Stempel kombiniert und zwar das Set “Grunge” und “13 Mal Frohe Weinachten”. Die Kartenrohlinge, die im Kit sind, habe ich einfach halbiert um die Kartenmenge zu verdoppeln. Ich mache jedes Jahr so viele Weihnachtskarten, dass diese Lösung für mich am Praktischten ist.

Der Grunge-Stempelset in Kombination mit Ranger Mint Chip Embossing Pulver macht wirklich was her als Kartenhintergrund auf dem gemusterten Papier. So braucht die Karte eigenlich gar nicht so viel Dekoration – nur ein paar Chipboard Sticker, etwas Vicki Boutin Warm Wishes-Papier und ein Stempelabdruck mit Heat Embossing-Technik.

Für die zweite Karte habe ich die selben Stempelsets verwendet, dieses Mal nur mit holografischem Embossing Pulver und schwarzer Stempelfarbe. Als Dekoration sind wieder Vicki Boutin Warm Wishes Papiere und Chipboard Sticker drauf.

Die Karte ist schön flach und einfach zu versenden und der hologratische Stempelabddruck gibt einen Überraschungseffekt zur Karte, weil man ihn nicht sofort sieht, sondern nur dann, wenn das Licht im richtigen Winkel auf die Karte fällt.

Die dritte Karte ist sehr simpel, aber durch das Vellum trotztem feierlich. Ich habe den Rand des Vellums etwas gerissen um eine unregelmäßige Kante zu kreieren. Der “13 Mal Frohe Weihnachten” Stempelabdruck ist mit weißem Embossingpulver gestaltet und die Chipboard Stickers sind wieder aus dem Dezember Kit.

Durch den simplen Design rückt das schöne Papier (teil eines Kartenrohlings aus dem Kit) in den Vordergrund. Ich finde, dass so eine Karte nicht viel Dekoration benötigt, wenn das Papier schon alleine so wunderschön ist.

Hier für Euch noch zum anschauen, ein kurzes Video über den Gestaltungsprozess. Ich hoffe Euch gefällt das Video!

Viel Spass beim Basteln!!

All the best

Hello and happy Monday! Today I´ m again sharing a very CAS card that is part of my “stash busting” project. Well, this one really does not use THAT much of product, but I at least used some product that has been sitting in m studio, unused. See, this ArtFoamies stamp (I think it´ s by Julie – one of her first designs). And I just have been saving it for a special occation. Which actually is a shame, so about time to use it!

I applied Hero Arts Shadow Ink onto to doily stamp and pressed it onto the white paper. I love the soft, airy look it creates with the ink. Then just a few stickers from my old stash to go with the doily and a Klartext stamp for a sentiment.

Wishing you all a fabulous day, less stress and more joy. Today marks the start of the 4th lockdown here and I am not even going to begin with my thoughts and feelings on that. Instead I´ m wishing you a great beginning into your new week.

Frohe Weihnachten

Hello and happy Sunday! Today I am sharing a set of Christmas cards I created with older product I have been saving, some previous DT time papers and some new stamps from my stash.

This above one is done with Studio Tekturek papers, Karen Marie Klip snowmen (these I´ ve had forever in my stash and didn´ t use, because they were so cute – I know, crazy, right?!). But like I have mentioned here before; those times are gone :). I am using it all and having fun doing so from now on!

And the second card is pretty much similar, except for the background paper. That is from my DT time at Canvas Corp Brands and I love the combination of the cute snowmen and the clean black and white paper here.

The stamps on both cards are new ones I bought last summer from a Dani Peuss sale. I am a sucker for Klartext stamps and the “13 mal Weihnachten” set is basically just that 13 Merry Christmas sentiments on one sheet. And it is just perfect for this season – timeless and versatile, because of different font styles!

Wishing you a lovely, creative Sunday!
