March 2021 stamp release – STAMPlorations

Hi and welcome to the stamp release bonus day!! Today we are still continuing with the new STAMPlorations stamp release celebrations!

Here are my bonus projects, created with the Art Marks 3 stamp set:

For these cards I´ve used a gel plate from Gelli Arts with acrylic paints by Dina Wakley Media in combination with Shery´s new Art Marks 3 stamp set. After creating the gelli printed images, I´ve punched them with a circle punch into smaller sizes. Before adhering them on place I stamped some random images onto the card base with the same stamp set.

For finishing touches I added a few Clear Stickers – also by STAMPlorations. This way you can create a set of fun mixed media cards, when you first play with your gelli plate and then add just tiny pieces onto cards. This way a few prints go a long way. Just remember to immediately clean your clear stamps after pressing them into acrylic paint, so they don´t get damaged.

For my last card I used a background that I created with a brayer and acrylic paints and on which I added some Art Marks 3 stamped images with black ink. That creates a fun mixed media card background that does not need that much of decor, because the background on it´s own if very bold. So I added a vintage number tag and a Clear Sticker for detail. That´s it!

I hope you´ve enjoyed this weeks reveal party with the design team girls and over at the STAMPlorations blog. If you missed a day, there is still time to join in by commenting on the participants blogs and on the STAMP main blog. Find more details on the main blog here. Have fun hopping and getting inspired and good luck on winning some awesome prizes!!!

May all… – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello lovelies and happy Monday! Today I´m sharing another layout, created with the Wild Hare Kits December kit. After doing the scraplift layout last week I wanted to play a little more with circles, and this is what I ended up with.

I die cut various papers from my kit (Heidi Swapp Winter Wonderland & Pink Paislee Together for Christmas into circles and arranged them on top of the Crate Paper Snowflake and Pink Paislee papers (see the product list at the end of this post for more details).

I also added a very bold title (Christmas song lyrics!) with the Crate Paper alphas stickers and I love the look it creates!! These might just be my al time favorite alphas of all time at the moment :)!

I ran out of „E´s“ at some point, so I used the number „3“ as „e´s“ :). Works really well. I also added some ephemera and stickers clusters here and there on the page. Those are done with the Crate Paper collection.

And for finishing touches, I added of afew black ink droplets here and there. Some of the stickers are adhered on place with 3D foam, by the way. That creates additional dimension to the page :).

That´s it for today! See you again tomorrow with my December The Wild Hare Kits project wrap up. I might have an extra project coming up for that tomorrow 😉 … ! See you then!

Happy crafting,

Bella BLVD & Canvas Corp Brands Team-Up week – You have my heart

bella boulevard hop banner 4Hello lovelies and welcome to the Bella BLVD and Canvas Corp Brands Team Up week!! I am very thrilled to be able to be part of this design team-up and today it´s time to share my final project – a super bright and happy layout:

Sanna LippertI started with a piece of Ken Oliver Water Media Paper. I always added a small splodge of water mist onto the paper, then opened a spray ink bottle and let ink droplets fall into the wet area. The colors need to dry completely before adding the second color, that way they don´t blend with each other. I wanted to create a half ciecle with the color splodges.

Sanna LippertNext I took a circle punch and punched quite a few circles out of the Sweet Sweet Spring collection papers (links to the used products at the end of this post). After that I inked the edges with faded jeans Distress Ink. When I had enough circles, I first adhered the white paper piece onto a light blue patterned paper and then glued all the circles overlappingly next to each other. Then I covered some parts of the colored circle with patterned paper strips and outlined those with a black pen.  Sanna LippertI added faux stitching around the edges with a black pen, adhered a Chipboard Script word „Hello“ on top of the patterned paper strips and using small alpha stickers, added some journaling underneath the title. Sanna LippertThere are also stickers from the same paper collection in there. I´ve outlined those with a black pen to make them stand out more from the bold background. Sanna LippertI again used black Glimmer Glaze splatters as contrast against the bold and colorful background and fussy cut some sentiments from the patterned paper to add around the photo. Sanna LippertThis is how the finished layout looks like:

Celebrate – The Nifty Pixel, Cosmo Bloom

Hi there, everyone! Time for some more The Nifty Pixel Cosmo Bloom goodness! This time I´m sharing a quick card I created by using just a piece of the digi cardstock and the lovely digi numbers and alphas from the Cosmo Bloom kit.

Here is what I did: I just cut the pinkish cardstock into right size, glued it down onto the card base and then punched with a circle punch around the numbers. This is sooo fast and easy to do! And next I just needed to assembly the numbers onto the card and glue them down, then add some golden texture spray splatters and a fussy cut, stamped sentiment….annnd the card is done!

Super easy and super fast! Here is a direct link to the Nifty Pixel blog for more inspiration and if you follow this link, it will directly take you to the store, where you can do some Cosmo Bloom digi kit shopping!! Have fun!
