Happy Friday! Today´s share is again a layout I did recently. The theme of this page is a dare. How many of you also scrap the ugly, unpretty events in their lives? I do that from time to time.
I just love this stamp set by Klartext (Dani Peuss) so, so much! It´s perfect for those not so super happy layout themes and photos! This photo goes back appr. a month, when I ended up taking an ambulance to the hospital. At first I actually thought this might be the end, my body just had refused to work and I collapsed at the doctors office. I immediately thought I am having a heart attack. Well, thank goodness it was not that, but it still was horrible enough. Apparently I had managed to get some kind of food poisoning that went reeeaally bad in a few days and finally let to a collaps. So what better stamp set to use for this type of page than the Klartext „Nicht Okay“ (not okay). I also used a few more sets – see the product list for all details!
I just love this stamp set! So I did plenty of stamping with it and added a few more Klartext stamp set to go with it, plus some Distress Oxides and Studio Tekturek papers. The combination of blue, black and red just works so well together. And boy have I missed scrapping!! This is my kind of scrapbooking – plenty of stamping, great patterned papers and a few embellishments and maybe some inks or stenciling.
Now this is a very personal page, so I will be adding the journaling later to the page and sharing it without. But it´s also good to do the ugly, uncomfortable events in life into scrapbook pages. Have you done any? It can be very therapeutical and freeing. You should give it a try! 🙂
Hello and happy Thursday! I am slowly starting to add cards to my Christmas card stack. It´s already September, so I better start make them. This one is done using the Klartext stamp set called „Mixed Media Weihnachten“.
I chose a blue patterned paper with stars as my background piece and added stamped and embossed white details to the background. The trees are embossed in 3 various pastel embossing powder tones onto a dark green patterned apper and then fussy cut. For finishing touches I added a heat embossed sentiment in white and silver puffy stars to the top.
I really like the contrast on this card. The blue background just makes so many colours „pop“! Have you started your Christmas card creating marathon yet?
Wishing you a FABULOUS end of the week!! xxx, Sanna
Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I am again stopping by to share another „junk art“ piece. I gathered various bits and bobs from my junk bags together and they resulted in this piece:
It is a random piece of corrugated cardboard that I painted with Distress Paints and some Dina Wakley Gloss Spray first. Then I added some stamping with Klartext (by Dani Peuss) stamps with black ink and then took a glimmer misted jar lid and adhered that onto the piece. the vintage paper dolls are by Tim Holtz and they got little wings from residue paper pieces (old Basic Grey papers). Then some Nuvo Mousse stenciled and Gloss Spray misted paper to the side and a white ribbon piece I painted with Distress paints to go with it.
On top some wripped Prima flower petals and silver star puffy stickers and a stamped sentiment that says: „Fly with me to the moon“. The other word „mondsüchtig“ translates to „moonstruck“.
This piece could be hung on a wall on it´ s own or framed in a 3D frame. I really like how it turned out and it is junk art again, which makes me very happy. BUT it didn´ t take me only 5 minutes to make it – it took a tad longer :).
Hello and happy mid week! I hope your week is going along fine? I have another clean and simple card share for today. I´ve again used some of the Klartext stamps (by Dani Peuss) on this card.
This time I combined the stamps with Nuvo Shimmer Powders and white embossing powder to create the centerpiece for my card. On the background I´ve got some lovely P13 papers and a tiny hedgehog from my older stash, combined with yet another heat embossed, stamped sentiment from another Klartext stamp set (see supply list for details).
I really like how the shimmer powder background makes the sentiment piece pop! And it makes for a perfect thank you-card for a dear friend too. You might be wondering, why I jump from totally crazy, mixed media frenzy to cards and projects like these? Well, it is just what I am. For different areas of crafting I just seem to prefer different types of styles. Sometimes it´s more clean and simple (but I still manage to add some mixed media here and there) and sometimes it´s just crazy colours, junk and media. That is just what I am and what I like.
I hope this card inspires you to play with your stamp sets and create a card or two! Have a wonderful, creative weekend! xxx, Sanna
Hello and happy Tuesday! Today´s share is yet another Klartext stamp based card. I have always loved using stamps in my projects and Klartext stamps were one of the first ones I used. They just seem to speak „my language“, if you know what I mean. I always find a perfect sentiment for a project from my Klartext stamp selection.
For this card the sentiment says: „Seen from the moon, the whole thing doesn´t play that big of a role“. I used the moon phase stamp strip with Distress Oxides in various colours repeatedly to create the background and then did a focal point using the sentiment mentioned before with white embossing powder on vellum. The stamp set is called „moon„, by the way.
On the background I have some more Studio Tekturek papers and for decor I took some silver puffy stickers.
I am having so much fun using German stamp sentiments for a change and creating these CAS cards. Wishing you a fabulous day! xxx, Sanna
