Hi!

Hello and happy Monday!! Today I´m just quickly stopping by to share a „stash busting“ card with you. This one is created using mainly old product from my stash.

I started with a spay inked layer of „Abstract April Showers“ stencil pattern on the background (using a Heidi Swapp spay ink – also from my older stash). Then I added a piece of misted book paper and a strip of Dina Wakley Washi Tape. This one is one of the new products used on this card. The flowers are stickers gifted to me by a friend (thanks, Lizzy) and the word stickers and chipboard are older stash.

I just layered everything on top of each other and that way the card came together. What are your plans for next week? Today was Austria´s indipendence day, so we had a day off. I needed that after hiking over 15km´s yesterday (well done me!). I hope to get some gardening done next week, let´s see how that goes. What are your plans for next week?

Wishing you a great week!

Belated STAMPlorations 7th Birthday party – day 4

Hello and happy Thursday and welcome to day 4 of STAMPlorations belated Birthday Celebration! Today we have again plenty of inspiration prepared for you, so I hope you visit the blogs, leave comments and join in on the fun! Remember, there are plenty of possibilities to win some awesome prizes too!

For today´s post I´ve prepared not one, but two inpirational projects. One is an art journal page and the other is a slimline card.

https://stamplorations.blogspot.com/2020/10/belated-birthday-4.html

My first project is this colorful rainbow toned slimline card featuring the new Fanned Slimline Stencil. I love this one so much! What I did for this card is a used a yellow cardstock as my card base and mounted the white cardstock piece (which I had inked with Distress Inks thru the Fanned stencil first) on top. For a focal point I chose to ink a piece of white cardstock in orange tones and add faux stitching around the edges and a stamped sentiment from the new Bloomfully Series clear stamp.

For my second project I did an art journal page onto a piece of canvas in my black Ranger art journal. I used plenty of my new stencils here: on the background as a negative image and on the circles I used the „positive“ image.

I love the crazy look of this page! Works really well together with the accompanying right page too. This you will probably recognize from the Stencil Challenge Reveal post ;-).

Now hop over to the Day 4 post at STAMPlorations blog. There are plenty of prizes for grabs and a linky party going on. Also be sure to create a celebrations themed project and link it up! Lovelies, come and comment and link and play along!!! It´s a party week at STAMPlorations!!

Belated STAMPlorations 7th Birthday Party – day 3

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today we continue the STAMPlorations belated 7th Birthday Party with day 3 full of inspiration and possibilities to play along and win some prizes!

For the 3rd day project I created another slimline card with the new Slimline stencils at the STAMPlorations store. I also used the Bloomfully Sparkle stamp (also a new stamp in the line) set on this card.

I used the Mosaic in Squares stencil to create the background for the card. For coloring I used red, pink, orange and yellow Distress Inks to gradually change the color on the background. Then I added a velvet ribbon, a piece of chipboard and the rose image stamped with the Bloomfully Sparkle Stamp. I colored the stamped image with Distress Inks also. Adn for finishing touches I added a sentiment from the same stamp set and some green sequins. Everything got mounted on a dark pink cardstock in the end.

I am so much enjoying these slimline stencils and creating with them and Distress Inks at the moment. This is something I love going back to from time to time. Simple techniques, yet you can do so much.

Now hop over to the Day 3 post at STAMPlorations blog. There are plenty of prizes for grabs and a linky party going on. Also be sure to create a celebrations themed project and link it up! Lovelies, come and comment and link and play along!!! It´s a party week at STAMPlorations!!

Belated STAMPlorations 7th Birthday Party – day 2

Hello and happy Tuesday!! Today we start into the second day of the 7th birthday celebrations at STAMPlorations. Are you ready??

For todays post I created a slimline card. This time I used the Leaf Prints Slimline stencil. This is one of my favorite stencil from this line!

Some details on how I created the card: I used a piece of white cardstock and placed the stencil on top. Next I applied two tones of green Distress Ink thru the stencil very randomly. After that I took a dot stamp and added dark green Distress Ink dots thru the stencil onto the leaves.

The Smile word is a die cut available at the STAMPlorations store. I die cut the word from dark green cardstock and added some green sequins for decor.

The stenciled piece is mounted on a dark green cardstock from which I created the card base. Easy peasy!

Now hop over to the Day 2 post at STAMPlorations blog. There are plenty of prizes for grabs and a linky party going on. Also be sure to create a celebrations themed project and link it up! Lovelies, come and comment and link and play along!!! It´s a party week at STAMPlorations!!

Belated STAMPlorations 7th Birthday party – day 1

Hello everyone and happy Monday! Today we start the belated STAMPlorations 7th birthday celebration. Happy birthday STAMPlorations and here´s to many, many more to come!!!

Here is my first project share for the celebration day 1 – a card created using some of the new Slimline stencils and Monika Skinner´s brand new Flexi Template Line!

https://stamplorations.blogspot.com/2020/10/belated-birthday-1.ht

For this card I used the Flair Slimline Stencil with the Oval Flexi Template and I wonder if you can see how I used it?

Yes, I first covered the whole cardstock piece with orange Distress Ink and then I placed the oval circles into the middle to protect that area and splattered water around the unprotected areas. That way the splatters are only outside the inner circle. For creating the inner part, I first placed the most outer piece of the template onto the previously water splattered area and then placed the Flair stencil on top. I added only small details to the oval in the middle with the stencil and red ink. Then I outlined the pattern with a white gel pen and added stamping and faux stitching around the ovals edges.

I love this card! The templates are so much fun to play with!!! I am only starting to discover what can be done with them!! You should definitely try them out!

Now hop over to the Day 1 post at STAMPlorations blog. There are plenty of prizes for grabs and a linky party going on. Also be sure to create a celebrations themed project and link it up! Lovelies, come and comment and link and play along!!! It´s a party week at STAMPlorations!!
