Congratulations – card, vol. 1

Hello and happy Thursday! Today I´m back with another clean and simple card share using a Pinkfresh Studio / Altenew stamp and die set with my stencil design from STAMPlorations.

I´ve used the „build a flower“ stamp set and then die cut it with the matching die to create the flower. For the background I used Distress Ink in Speckled Egg tone with my RagRug stencil. The stamped sentiment is by Stampin´ Up! And the dots are done with Nuvo Vintage Drops. Very clean in style, but I just love the white space here!

Today would have been my dad´s 81st birthday. He has been gone for 29 years now. I´ve spent 24 of those years abroad. Today I´m again thinking about him on his birthday. Thus a birthday card share for today. I hope you have a good one, dad!

Happy crafting,

Thankful for you – card, vol. 4

Hello everyone and happy Saturday! Today I´m stopping by to share one more card from the series I did a while back. I really do like creating clean-and-simple cards from time to time!

For this card I used one of my stencils (available at STAMPlorations) and a stamp and die set by Pinkfresh Studio / Altenew.

I find this stamp and die set so practical. See, I am not much of a flower colorer (well, I haven´t really put so much effort into it so far, because it wasn´t my main interest until now :)..). So, this type of stamps are perfect for a girl like me. Pick a color in various shades and stamps. EASY!

Then die cut, add a background and a die cut sentiment and you are good to go. And I get many cards done in one sitting :).

Happy crafting,

Thankful for you – card, vol. 3

Hello and happy Monday! I´ve still got a few clean and simple cards to share that I did a while back. Here is again one of them:

For this card I used the Pinkfresh Studio/Altenew stamp set for creating the flowers. It also come with a matching die cut set, which makes creating these flowers so very easy! And the Thankful sentiment is also in the set. So I did a red toned flower this time and added red stenciling onto the background, using one of my own stencil designs (available at STAMPlorations).

As much as I love doing really bold and sometimes very crazy mixed media heavy cards, I also enjoy these clean and simple ones as much. Therefore, one day you will see me do this type of card and the other totally something else :).

Wishing you a lovely day! Hope the weather at your end is better than here, it´s been cold and rainy for weeks now. I wouldn´t mind the sun showing itself for a change!!

Happy creating,

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!

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!
