Shine bright

Hello and happy Sunday! It´ s been almost two years that I had a cold. And then just like that it was here… I feel like s….! But keeping my spirits high with tea and then some more tea and some medicine against the cold. So my card share for today is a bit ironic, as I am not shining bright today at all, but in the hope it lifts some spirits, I´ ll share it today with you guys.

For this card I again used some of my STAMPlorations stencils with their stamps and clear stickers. On the background I have used Distress Paints and Gansai Tambi watercolors. Just some quick and fun play.

I hope you manage to stay healthy this fall!! I´ m feeling so under the weather and it´ s something I truly haven´ t missed. But at least we were able to finish off some important construcktion works in our garden, before this virus hit me. I am just going to give my body the time it now needs and then I´ ll be on my feet again soon again.

Take care and stay healthy!!!

Hello and happy Friday! Today´ s share is a quick mixed media card, created from leftover pieces and residue media bits.

I´ ve got all my faves on this piece: various media leftovers added in layers, fun stamped sentiment and vintage image. I am really into creating this type of cards lately. The vintage images combined with snarky sentiments just hit all bases at the moment :).

I hope your week has been good and you are slowly starting your weekend!!! I still have lots of work to do at our construction site which also is a reason why it has been very quiet here lately. But in a way I have been crafty and creative, just not here on my blog. This morning I just could not wait, but came to my studio for a quick few minutes of creative time and ended up with this card. And now off to other “creative work” :).

Have a great weekend, lovelies!

Klug war´ s nicht..

Hello and happy Friday! Today´ s project share is another mixed media card with a funny sentiment. It says something like this translated: “It might not have been smart, but it was cool”.

I´ ve created the background with Scribble Sticks, Brusho´ s, Distress Paints and some Gainsai Tambi Starry Colors. I also added some stenciling with two of my STAMPlorations stencils. For finishing touches I added a stamped Klartext stamp sentiment.

I really like the gold watercolour as a contrast to the blues and purples. This is going to be a fun card to give to someone.

Wishing you a great weekend!

Immer optimistisch bleiben

Hello and happy Thursday! Today I´ m stopping by to share another “junk art” piece. This one has mainly product from my junk bag. the only things I added outside of the bag are the stenciling, stamping and paints. Rest is all just random leftovers and junk. I am really into making these mixed media pieces lately, because they are so much fun. They allow me just to add random stuff onto a piece and find a way to make it work for me.

And somehow they turn out to my liking without any exact before-planning. And that is what makes it so much fun! There is some texture paste added thru my STAMPlorations stencil, then some Klartext stamp images on the background and as a sentiment. Dina Wakley Scribble Sticks and Distress Paints for color and tissue paper as well as random leftover bits like the inked & dried out baby wipe strip. SO MUCH FUN!

Hope your day was great?! Mine was really good. I spent the afternoon with my son out in the city. We did some shopping and just chatted some. I´ m such a lucky boy-mom to have two boys who don´ t mind going shopping with their mom. Who said only girl-moms could do shopping sprees with their kids?! 🙂

And now I am really tired, so I´ ll go and and relax abit.

Arschkarte

Hello and happy Wednesday! We all know how it feels to draw the short straw… This card is exactly about that. I did a junk art / ugly art style card with Gloss Sprays, stenciling, gel printing, embossing enamel and some Dina Wakley collage collective pieces, combined with Klartext stamps.

This stamp set is quickly becoming one of my favorites! It suits so many everyday situations and has perfect sentiments for those “not so perfect” days. A mixed media heavy background works so well with this stamp set, too. I really enjoyed creating this card!

And I even managed to add in some bits from my junk bags. I´ ve previously used the ribbon for gel printing and saved the inked pieces for later – they work so well on this card and nothing goes to waste!

Hope your Wednesday was great!? I had a really nice day chatting with a friend, who I haven´ t seen in ages! By the way, If you´ d like to see a card video tutorial for a change, do stop by on my blog on Sunday, when I´ ll be sharing a set of cards created for Elizabeth Craft Designs.

See you then,
