Owl card

Hello and happy Sunday! Today I´m stopping by to share a clean and simple birthday card with you. I really like this owl stamp, therefore I built my card aroud it.

I first took the Onions in Raws stencil and applied Distress Ink Speckled Egg tone thru it onto the white card base. Then I stamped the owl with black stamp ink and colored it with Distress Oxide tones in brown, grey and blue.

The stamp image has a matching die for it, so I just die cut the owl and adhered it to the card with 3D foam. For finishing touches I added a Stampin´ Up! stamp sentiment and some Nuvo Drops. That´it. I really like creating these very clean and simple and even monochromatic cards at the moment.

Wishing you all a fabulous Sunday and a good new week!

May Stencil Challenge – STAMPlorations

Hello everyone and welcome to the STAMPlorations May Stencil Challenge reveal. It´s again an new, fresh, month and that always means that new challenges go live on STAMPlorations! I hope I can inspire you to join in with us at the Stencil challenge this month with my happy card.

For the May challenge I played with my Gelli Arts gel plate and my stencils. I love doing these mixed media backgrounds using the stencils. It´s always so exciting to see what kind of results come of out gel printing play time. This is also a really fun way of playing with ones stencils, by the way :).

For this one I used the Peacock Feathers stencil from my stencil line at STAMPlorations in combination with a gelli plate and skin toned and orange toned acrylic paints. After creating the background I did a few smaller prints with a set of small square gel plates and Art Marks 3 stamp set by STAMPlorations. The then became the background for the stamped flower images. Which were stamped with the Bloom Doodles stamp set and black stamp ink.

After that I just fussy cut the images and created the flower cluster onto the card. For finishing touches I added a Clear Sticker (also by STAMPlorations) sentiment.

That´s it! Now is again your turn to get creative with stencils. Please remember to play by the rules!! They are always listed at the end of the challenge and are really simple to follow, so remember, if you want to be in for the prizes, play according to the rules :).

Thankful for you – card, vol. 2

Hello and happy Saturday! Today I´m stopping by to share another clean and simple card with you, created using some lovely „build a flower“ stamps and dies by Pinkfresh Studio & Altenew.

I love making these cards!!! If you are not much of a coloring person, then this type of stamps are just the thing to look for. You can do cool shading and shadows by builing layers with the stamp set.

Then just die cut and add to a stenciled card background and you have a lovely flower card done in no time! And you can easily make multiples, while you are at it. Perfect for invitations, for example :).

I do love this stamp and die set! It´s so pretty!!! Have you tried these yet?

Happy weekend!

Mixed media card

Hello and happy Thursday! Today I´m stopping by to share one more mixed media card with you. I again did the background using Gelli Arts gelli plate with my stencil designs.

I first did the pattern with the gel plate and a stencil design of mine using red acrylic paint on white paper. For the next step I took orange toned Distress Ink and inked the white areas with it. It´s a nicer contrast for the eye and the strong red/white tones.

For the flower and petals I used a STAMPlorations stamp set on a residue piece of that gelli printed paper and stamped the images with black ink. For finishing touches I added a clear sticker (also by STAMPlorations) and a red button into the middle of the flower. The card is still flat enough to fit into an envelope :).

Wishing you a great day!

Thankful for you – card

Hello and happy Friday! Today I´m sharing a clean and simple card with you, created with some Altenew products I recently ordered.

I love how these flowers look on the card! I did some yellow-orange-toned ones for this card and the stenciling on the background is done using my own stencil designs (available at STAMPlorations).

The stamp comes with matching dies and I basically used the exactly the way like packaging suggested. And I had a great time creating this card – there might be some more coming :). Just saying..

So be prepared to see similar cards on my blog also in the future. I haven´t ordered crafting supplies in a while and I thought it would be a good time to get some sprays and paints and while picking those I ended up ordering a few stamps and dies as well :). And I ordered from a small, family owner craft store. Supporting a small/local craft store in these pandemic times is so important. They, like many other businesses struggle and can use all support they can get. So for your next order, think about supporting the small businesses 🙂 !!!

Wishing you a great day!
