Happy Birthday!

Hello everyone and happy Friday! Today I´m sharing another clean and simple card, but this time combined with products from Studio Tekturek and STAMPlorations.

For the background I again used the newer Studio Tekturek papers and for decor I added the new paper goods by STAMPlorations from their new paper goods line. And in between I´ve added some stamping with black stamp ink.

I also managed to sneak in a few older products *LOL*. See the tiny cloud sticker? It´s by Sassafrass and the button is from my never-ending-button-stash :).

I had fun creating this card. Wishing you a fabulous weekend!!!

Alles Gute!

Hello and happy Wednesday! I used to to this type of cards ALOT when I still did plenty of scrapbook layouts. I loved using graphic patterned paper on the card backgrounds and then adding tiny bits on top with some pattern stamping in black.

So this feels really good again to do this type of cards. And it comes together so naturally still. I´ve used plenty of Studio Tekturek papers and REALLY old glass drops to decorate the card.

The stamping is done using some of my older Stampin´Up! stamp stash. So I managed to sneak in some older product too. The rest is very new Studio Tekturek product :). I just love this type of papers so, so much!

Wishing you all a great mid week!

Alles Gute!

Hello and happy Monday! Here is one more stash-busting-project based card. I hope you are not getting tired of these? I love making them and discovering, how quite old produkt works together with newer ones. And the funny thing is, they REALLY do! Even the colours match! How amazing is that!??

For this card I again used the Pink Paislee Truly Grateful tiny 2×2 inch paper pads to create the „quilt-style“ background. The size is perfect for a card background!

And for decor I used really quite old embellishments (chipboard flowers etc.). These are mostly by Basic Grey (I think) and Cosmo Cricket and go quite a long time back in time. At least 10 years if not longer…

For additional decor I added hand drawn faux stitching and a stamped sentiment from my Stampin´Up! stamp collection. That´s the whole magic behind this card. And it´s still quite flat, so it should be not problem to mail it to someone.

I hope your week got a good start and you get to enjoy summer abit. I have a few things planned, crafty wise, but this time it´s more home improvement type of crafting. I am planning on painting a room and decorating it totally new. I might even add a few photos during the process to my blog, if you are interested. So let me know :).

Happy birthday – card

Hello everyone and happy Saturday! Today I´m sharing another clean and simple card, done using some Pinkfresh Studio/Altenew stamps with matching dies.

I haven´t given „proper“ coloring a try so far. I think it´s because I don´t have the patience. I bet if I put my mind to it, I could eventually do nice coloring, but it just hasn´t been my number one priority so far. Therefore I love layering stamps you can „color“ flowers and leaves with :). So easy and not much thinking necessary.

That is why I adore this stamp and die set. So, so cool to work with. I´ve done several colours so far and it has always been so much fun. This is my latest take – soft pastel colours in Kitsch Flamingo. The stencil on the background is from my stencil line at STAMPlorations and works really well with the flower. The sentiment is older Stampin´Up! collection and the drops are done with Nuvo Drops.

I have been thinking about signature style alot. I really don´t know if I have one. I love to use certain products and media, but that hardly counts as signature style. When you see my work, do you immediately recognize it is done by me? And what makes it stand out as my work? I´d love to hear your comments on that, so please drop me a line (if there are still any people reading this blog?!!)… Thank you!

Wishing you a lovely weekend! Lots of sunshine, creativity and summer joys! xxx, Sanna

Leben ist, was du daraus machst

Hello and Happy Thursday! I hope you haven´t already had enough of my stash-busting cards? This particular one I really, really like. I think it´s the colours maybe. I again used the Truly Grateful Pink Paislee 2×2 paper pads for the background and created this quilt type of pattern with them.

And it´s so funny how all these patterns work together so well. Maybe because the colours go well together.

This, too, was such an easy card to make. Just arranging and adhering the small papers onto the card base, then adding a really, really old Crate Paper Bike Chipboard piece as a focal point and a stamped sentiment on blue cardstock to go with it. The manufacturer of these stamps is Klartext. You can find them here.

Only one more day, lovelies, and it´s weekend again. Sending you lot´s of sunshine and wishing for a nice, relaxing weekend at your end!
