Christmas cards in pastel tones

Hello and happy Friday lovelies!!! Today´s post is again about Christmas cards. No surprise there, right? Well, I make plenty every year, so I will share those mostly during December every year, so hope you can still handle a few more Christmas card related posts. Not long now anyways, as Christmas is soon here.

These cards are again done using the absolutely adorable Christmas paper collection by Mintay Papers. It´s a collection from last year, but I have still papers left, so I´m using them all up. And I love how they look! So, so, so pretty!!

I´ve added some brown Distress Ink around the edges to the card on the left. It creates such a nice vintage look to the papers! on the right card, there is some Nuvo Key Lime clear drops on the lights. It adds a nice dimension. Other than that, the sentiment is stamped with Elizabeth Craft Designs Winter Sentiments. Some Nuvo glitter drops here and there and that is basically it.

I hope you like today´s card share and I hope to have inspired you today. Happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna

Clean and simple Christmas cards

Hello and happy Tuesday! Today I´m stopping by to share a set of very clean and simple Christmas cards. I have been stash busting throughout the fall and believe me, I cannot even notice the difference in my stash yet. Thus, the mission just has to continue. Therefore, today´s share is a total stash busting project.

These are the cute snowmen cards. The elements are by Karen Marie Klip and I bought them like a million years ago. The reason I haven´t used them is simple. I loved them too much to give them away – LOL. I´m sure some of you understand this very well :).

And now, finally, I just took out my scissors and cut them apart, so there was no way of saving them anymore. I ran them thru my Xyron Sticker Maker to give them an adhesive back and then just arranged them onto a piece of old Basic Grey paper (the grey one) and adhered everything onto a white card base. The stamping is done with my older stamps which I got from Close to my Heart years and years ago. So pretty much stash busting done. Does it show in my stash? Not really, so I´ll just keep on using older product to get my stash reduced. Some day I´ll reach that goal :).

And I love how these cards look like, the snowmen are way cute! Wishing you all a lovely day. xxx, Sanna

Christmas cards with Very Much Merry collection – Studio Tekturek

Hello lovelies!! Did you know that Studio Tekturek has a lovely new collection out, called „Very Much Merry„. So this year, Christmas is going to be very pastellic toned. I love the designs. Especially the Santa journaling cards and the tiny Xmas tree paper!

I got this super cute paper in the works and I ended up creating a big pile of Christmas cards with it! A total of 11 cards for starters. Once I got started, I could not stop!

Here are the first four cards. Those Santa´s make me smile!! And the cute journaling cards are perfect for a December Daily, but also make a really nice detail on a Christmas card! I wanted to concentrate on the paper and leave them space to shine, so I kept the decoration very simple.

I did also make some shaker cards, by die cutting a Christmas tree from the patterned paper and filling the shaker part with various tones of confetti. Rest of the shaker cards I kept really simple, just adding the patterned paper and a little sentiment sticker.

I´ve also added some Nuvo Drops on top of the shaker Christmas tree windows. This adds a fun detail to the trees – almost like baubles.

The green and blue snowflake card have the patterned paper peeking thru from the background and an inked piece of white cardstock is on top. I especially love how the tiny Christmas trees are peeking thru behind the snowflake. The other cards I really clean and simple in style. I wanted to make them that way to get the papers stand out more. They are so beautiful on their own, that they really do not need much decoration at all. Some Nuvo Drops and stamping here and there and that´s enough in my opinion.

I´ll be sharing more projects, created using these papers very soon. I cannot wait to create Christmas present tags with this collection!! And also cannot wait to send these cards to friends and family :)!!!

Check out the Studio Tekturek STORE and spread the word about their lovely designs. It´s a small family business who can use all the support they can get, especially during these difficult times with lockdowns and social distancing!! Be sure to check out their store for more collection and designs and follow them on Insta.

See you soon with even more projects!! Happy crafting!

Clean and simple Christmas cards

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I´m up with another set of Christmas cards, this time in clean and simple style. I´ve used some of the gorgeous STAMPlorations stencils on these to create the patterns.

See? Very simple and easy card ideas! I took a piece of red patterned paper (leftover piece that was on my table ;-)..) and placed the stencils on top. Then I took a blender brush and applied the golden Nuvo Mousse thru the stencil on top. After the mousse was dry, I outlined the patterns with white to make them better stand out from the background.

For the third card I used Ivory Coast Nuvo Crackle Mousse thru a STAMPlorations stencil. As a base I used a dark red cardstock piece. For decor I added some felt and wooden stars and into the middle I added a stamped sentiment. Easy peasy!

On the other cards I just added little details, like a STAMPlorations clear sticker and a wooden reindeer piece (who has a Nuvo Vintage Drop red nose, by the way ;-)..). For the other cards I just added a in brown stamped Christmas sentiment on a piece of white cardstock and inked the edges a little to give it a vintage look. The star is wood veneer combined with a star sticker. So only very little details, lots of red and a little gold with white. Very christmassy in my opinion!

Christmas card set

Hello and happy Sunday! Today I´m again stopping by to share a set of Christmas cards, created using the gorgeous Sweetest Christmas collection papers by Mintay Papers. I love this collection! Here is what I made this time:

I did some fussy cutting for these cards too, by the way. And since the papers are so very sweet on their own, I didn´need to (and also didn´t want to) add much. Just some Nuvo Drops and stamped sentiments, that´s it!

I don´t know if you can see it, but there are some key lime clear drops here and there on the green parts to add dimension and texture. And on the white areas I´ve added some snow mimicing details with white glitter drops. Also some pink glitter drops were added very randomly for additional sparkle onto the poinsettia leaves.

I also added some brown Distress Ink around the edges of one card, it immediately gave the card a more vintagey look. Love that effect on this paper! And the cards still are very flat so sending them on their way will not be too expensive. Dimensional cards tend to be expensive when mailing them and also rather easy get damaged on the way. No such problems with these ones 🙂 !

Wishing you a great start into your week! We are still on lockdown here in Austria. How are you holding up at your end, lovelies? Some days I´m ok with everything and other days, well, let´s just say, are not that great. Hope everything is ok at your end, peeps!!!

Take care,
Sanna
