Dude, you are so old

Hello and happy Saturday!! How are you doing? I´ve been organizing our closets during the past weekends, because it was about time and it´s a good activity during the pandemic in my opinion. It´s kind of addictive too! I´ve been influenced by Marie Kondo and that method has taken over our closets. And it feels so good!!

Now to today´s card:

I did this one for a colleague at work – he is turning 50. He has a great humour, so I could put this type of card together for him. This was so much fun to do!

The background is done with Dina Wakley gloss sprays (in spring during one of her FB lives). I just used it as a card background and added some stenciling on top (STAMPlorations stencil) and decorated the card with a Tim Holtz paper doll, that got a red clown nose and then I added the stamped sentiment. I had a great time creating this card!!!

And today, again, I had been organizing clothes. I´ve gathered quite a pile of stuff that I am partly going to donate, partly sell and some of the stuff has already been donated to close family and friends. Feels good to give those things away and for someone else to find joy in them. I cannot wait to organize more!! It might be spring by the time I´m thru with every drawer in this house, but at least I´ve spend my time doing something good inside these walls.

See you tomorrow with a Christmas tag tutorial, so be sure to stop by this space then :). xxx, Sanna

Congrats!

Hello and happy Thursday! I´m stopping by to share another „funky“ birthday card with you today. This one is one of the fun Gloss Spray backgrounds I did during the lockdown, while watching the Dina Wakley FB lives.

So the gloss spray background is the base of this card. On top of that I added some Onions in Raws stencil pattern on top (using black Distress Ink). For finishing touches I added a stamped sentiment (stamped directly onto the background), some washi tape by Dina, older brads and flowers as well as some Nuvo sequins.

Like mentioned in my previous post, this stencil design went thru a modification. It´s slightly bigger in size than the previous design. If you want to see more, I share a short video here.

One more day until weekend, hoping it´s going to be exactly how you want it to be! Have a great day!

Celebrate!

Hello lovelies! Happy Wednesday!!! Today I´m sharing another stenciled card, using my new stencils at STAMPlorations. This stencil, actually, is not a new one, but it went thru a modification process, thus, „new“.

We changed the design into a slightly bigger one, because cutting it was a difficult process. A bigger design makes the cutting easier, so we changed it abit. A second designs that got changed, was Onions in Raws. Totally out of same reasons. So if you bought these two stencils by their reveal, the new ones are slightly different (bigger). The smaller designs will not be available anymore in the store.

For the background I used residue pieces where I pressed a misted stencil onto a white paper and got this colorful image. Then I added the RagRug pattern with black Distress Ink on top. For decor a stamped and fussy cut sentiment and a few older embellishments.

A perfect color combination for fall birthday wishes!
Happy crafting,

Party time!

Hello and happy Monday! Today I´m stopping by with a bright and happy birthday card. I love the colours on this card!

For this card I first created a multi-toned background with yellow, green, orange and pink Distress Ink. Then I added the Zodiac stencil pattern on top with black ink. For decor I stamped the sentiments with a STAMPlorations stamp set „Party Time“.

For decor I added some green sequins and faux stitching around the edges. I love how this card looks like – so happy and it has a nice party-feel to it in my opinion!

I hope you have a great new week and stay healthy!

November Stencil Challenge – STAMPlorations

Hello and happy November!!! New month means a new Stencil Challenge and here is my take for the November Stencil Challenge reveal at STAMPlorations.

This card is made using a white card base on which I mounted a misted, stenciled old book paper. For misting I used various Dylusions sprays with one of my new stencil designs, called Abstract Prehistoric Life.

After mounting the dried book paper onto the card base, I just added very little decoration. The Panda bear figure and a hooray sticker from my older stash. I love the look, it´s like the panda bear is in the middle of colorful leaves.

Now is your turn to play with stencils and submit your projects here. Please don´t forget to follow the rules if you want to be in for the win ;-).
