Hello and happy Friday!! Today I have a day off from work – yay!!! What better way to end a week :). I have so been looking forward to this weekend and next week as I was hoping to be able to see some relatives and celebrate my special big day next week, but then Covid happened and there went all the nice plans down the drain.
So, oh well, instead of preparing a birthday party, I have been crafting cards. I mean, you only turn 50 once, right? And I was not going to hide somewhere, I was going to celebrate. My dad passed away suddenly with only 52, so the number 50 has a deeper meaning to me. Imagine you only had two years left from there? So I´ve decided to celebrate every single birthday from now own. You never know which one is going to be the last.
And now there´s Covid.. so much for the celebration. Oh well, I guess this year is just not going to get better, no matter what. So I have been crafting instead. I do love yellow, so I´ve been happily incorporating it to my work as much a possible! And this card has some fresh yellow-white stripes! I so love the background. And the centerpiece of this card is a cute owl gifted to my by my lovely friend, Lizzy! Thank you! It found a perfect spot on this card :).
I´m wishing you all an amazing weekend!! Hope everything is ok at your end! xxx, Sanna
Hello everyone and happy Saturday! Today´s share is a birthday card, created using mainly Elizabeth Craft Designs products as well as some very old flower paper from my older stash.
I am still stash busting, as you can see :). And here is the finished card:
I first cut the blue patterned paper (by Elizabeth Craft Designs) in size and then I attached some Clear Double Sided Adhesive onto the green patterned paper (from my own old stash of papers) and die cut the Bubbles. After die cutting, I adhered them onto the blue paper and cut any residue off.
Then I die cut the „leaves“ with the Budding Florals die from an old Basic Grey paper (again from my very old paper stash) and after fussy cutting the other leaves and roses, arranged everything onto the card and adhered them on place. A birthday sentiment to finish the card off and everything was done. I really like the look of this card. The flowers work really well with the bubble pattern. And I love the turquoise paper so much.
Here´s to a lovely weekend! Hope you are all doing fine!! xxx, Sanna
Hello lovelies! I am still on my stash busting journey and I made this easy-to-do card with some older product from my stash. I combined two of my faves – Sassafras product and stenciling.
So here is a fun card for a birthday party and/or invitation. This one is really very simple to do. Just place a stencil onto the card base, add two tones of Distress Ink thru it and then decorate with stickers, buttons and sticker alphas! And you can even add some Nuvo Drops for additional fun, if you want. That´s it!
I have piles and piles of stickers I still want to use up – also pleeeenty of buttons in my stash. So it´s good to use one or two here and there! And that monster is perfect for a childrens party theme, right?
That´s it for today. Come back on Friday to see another card that I am sharing here.
Hello lovelies, today I´d like to share a feminine birthday card with you. This one has some gorgeous papers on it, designed by Aga Baraniak. Also it features some new Tonic Studios die cut dies.
Since the background paper (by Aga Baraniak) is so very pretty on it´s own, I didn´t want to add anything to it, but just left it as it is. To add tot he beautiful look, I just die cut the Rainbow Rose die cut pattern from pink cardstock (both by Tonic Studios). This particular die is not available at the Tonic Store just yet, but if you look for Edge Dies, you will find a selection of similar ones, like this Ranbow Rose die.
For decorational elements I used some flowers from my older stash (boy, I still have so many of those..). Also a piece of twine decorates the flower border which I created by wripping some hydrangea flowers apart and adding the petals to the card as a „line“. Then I just die cut the German Tonic Sentiment „Alles Gute“ and cut it apart to adhere it in a linear manner. That´s it. A very romantic looking card was done in no time.
Wishing you a great Sunday and happy crafting,
Helllo everyone, I shared a teen boy birthday card two days ago and while I was at it, I made a second card in a similar style.
This one is a little bigger in size, measuring 5,5 x 5,5 inches. For this card I´ve again used the Lattice stencil from my STAMPlorations stencil line, but this time applying the blue and green colour in a more random way and also fading the color towards the edges of the card.
Fior decoration I again used some older stash stickers to create the focal point and some banners on the upper right corner. I stamped the sentiment using hashtag stamps by Tim Holtz and added the number 16 (Thickers) into the middle. For additional decor there are again some Glimmer Glaze splatters as well as Nuvo Confetti Stars here and there.
I really enjoyed creating these simple cards a lot – haven´t been doing any masculine cards for a while..
Wishing you a lovely day and happy crafting,
