Happy Birthday!

Hello everyone and happy Friday! Today I´m sharing another clean and simple card, but this time combined with products from Studio Tekturek and STAMPlorations.

For the background I again used the newer Studio Tekturek papers and for decor I added the new paper goods by STAMPlorations from their new paper goods line. And in between I´ve added some stamping with black stamp ink.

I also managed to sneak in a few older products *LOL*. See the tiny cloud sticker? It´s by Sassafrass and the button is from my never-ending-button-stash :).

I had fun creating this card. Wishing you a fabulous weekend!!!

Alles Gute!

Hello and happy Monday! Here is one more stash-busting-project based card. I hope you are not getting tired of these? I love making them and discovering, how quite old produkt works together with newer ones. And the funny thing is, they REALLY do! Even the colours match! How amazing is that!??

For this card I again used the Pink Paislee Truly Grateful tiny 2×2 inch paper pads to create the „quilt-style“ background. The size is perfect for a card background!

And for decor I used really quite old embellishments (chipboard flowers etc.). These are mostly by Basic Grey (I think) and Cosmo Cricket and go quite a long time back in time. At least 10 years if not longer…

For additional decor I added hand drawn faux stitching and a stamped sentiment from my Stampin´Up! stamp collection. That´s the whole magic behind this card. And it´s still quite flat, so it should be not problem to mail it to someone.

I hope your week got a good start and you get to enjoy summer abit. I have a few things planned, crafty wise, but this time it´s more home improvement type of crafting. I am planning on painting a room and decorating it totally new. I might even add a few photos during the process to my blog, if you are interested. So let me know :).

Hello and happy Sunday! Today I´m stopping by to share another Bloom Cutups ATC card, done with STAMPlorations new paper goods product. I´ve shared a card yesterday and this is another one done with the same paper goods product line.

There is a total of 14 new products in this product category at the STAMPLorations store and more will be added bit by bit. So stay tuned for more awesome paper goods in the future.

For this card I used the same products like on my previous cards from yesterday: Art Marks #3 stamp set, New Day clear stickers, Art Marks #1 border die and the Bloom Cutups ATC paper goods. This time I used a gelli printed DIY background as a base and added the stamping, the border die a well as the Bloom Cutup and the sentiment on top. So this card is again full-on mixed media crazy :). Just the way I like it!

Also do stop by the STAMPlorations blog for more inspiration project shares around the new peper goods collection as well as the store to getyourself some of your own :)!

Wishing you all a lovely day and happy crafting,

Live your dreams

Hello and happy Saturday! STAMPlorations recently added new paper goods to their product selection and I got to play with the Bloom Cutups ATC Ephemera. So today I´m sharing a set of cards done with that product.

There are card fronts, colorables, and ephemera — all created for artsy crafters to play with and create fab projects. They’re some of the most gorgeous designs professionally printed on 120# (325 gsm) matte white cardstock. There are 14 new products in this category as of today, and more will be added and featured in the future. But today´s post is all about Bloom Cutups ATC. Here is what I did with them:

I used the Art Borders #1 in combination with the Bloom Cutups ATC paper goods and the Art Marks stamp set number 3 to create the card.

I took a piece of yellow cardstock and stamped random patterns with the Art Marks 3 stamp set (with black stamp ink) onto the background. Next I added a die cut border with the Art Borders #1 die using green cardstock. Then I adhered the Bloom Cutups ATC piece as my focal point to the card and I finished the card off with a New Day Clear Sticker and a button with some twine.

I really like how the flowers on the Bloom Cutups ATC piece really stand out. The immediaately bring the whole card alive. And you could totally also fussy cut them and add them to your project on their own.

I´ll share another take tomorrow. Be sure to stop by for that!
Happy crafting,

June Stencil Challenge Reminder – STAMPlorations

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.

Now hop over to the STAMPlorations blog to see more inspiration and then join in with us on the stencil fun! Please do remember to check out the rules on the main post, so you are qualified for winning prizes.

I hope you get inspired by this card and play a little yourself!
Happy stenciling, Sanna
