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 :).

Just a little something!

Hello and happy Tuesday! Today I´m again sharing a card from my personal stash busting challenge. This one is a very clean and simple one, but I have a particular couple in my mind, who will receive this card at some point (they love plants).

I´ve used solely papers and ephemera from my The Wild Hare Kits design team time residue kits for this card.

I cut everything in size, arranged them onto the cardbase and adhered the pieces on place. Done! Very easy, very fast, but still looks lovely. Imagine you are a huge plant lover and you get this card with a gift card for a plant store inside. I think it´s going to be a good surprise gift.

I´ve done quite a few cards already, but I really don´t notice any big changes in my stash so far. *LOL*! Therefore I cannot stress enough: „only buy what you can use!“. Don´t hoard! I know it is tempting and it feels good to have all the pretty things around you, but do you really need them all at once? Also, only buy as much media as you are currently able to use. Why? Because they turn old too, dry out and you´ve basically trown your money away.

Wishing you a great week!

Congratulations – card, vol. 2

Hello and happy Monday! Today I´m again stopping by to share another clean and simple card with you! One of my all time favorite colours is yellow. I´ve loved yellow since I was little. It is a colour that immediately lifts my mood!

For this card I used the STAMPlorations „Rag Rug“ stencil from my stencil line there with yellow Distress Ink. The stamp and die set is by Pinkfresh Studio/Altenew and I love using this kinds of stamps to „color“ flowers. This way I don´t have to worry about adding the shading to the right spots, because it´s always right.

For additional decor I added some Nuvo Drops in Emarald and a stamped sentiment (from my older Stampin´Up! stamp collection). That´s all there is to this card. I love the white space on it and the colours. Makes me happy! I hope this card lifts your spirits today too! Here´s to a great week!

Full of Joy!

Hello everyone and happy Thursday! Today I´m again stopping by with another stash-busting card project. The bits and bobs on this card are all from my time at the Wild Hare Kits design team. I love that ephemera and the lovely flower paper.

And the little cutie snail just adds so much more cuteness to the card which is so very easy to make. Just add the flower paper to a card base and layer and arrange a cluster with various die cut pieces / ephemera on top. Add some faux stitching around the edges and that´s it!

A perfect fast and easy-to-do birthday card idea! I usually go the mixed media way with my cards and on the last ones I have added NONE. Sometimes it´s good to go out of ones comfort zone and challenge oneself with a totally different style. And like mentioned on my previous post, I am trying to seriously reduce my stash, so there will be paper dominated cards and other projects showing up on my blog from time to time. I´ll let you know, when I´ve managed to empty a box or a drawer.

I doubt it will happen any time soon ;-). Wishing you a great day and a good weekend :)! Happy summer and happy crafting!

You´re Tweet!

Hello and happy Tuesday! I´m stopping by to share another stash-busting project with you. I have boxes full of stickers and various embellishments that I have been saving for „that special occation“. Who is with me here? It´s horrible, isn´t it? If you don´t use the product that „special day“ will just never come!!! So I´ve stopped hoarding! I am slowly reducing my stash at my studio. And it will probably take LOOOONG until one even can notice a difference *rollingeyes*.

So don´t be like me, don´t hoard :). Use that lovely product up when you buy it! Trust me. That is the best way.

For this card I´ve used some pretty old stickers – I honestly even don´t know who they were by. Anyone recognize these? All I know is that they are old.. But they still made for a cute birthday card, right?

Oh, and this new art of photo setup is a gorgeous plate I purchased from the lovely Tulü Porzellan in Vienna. Do check them out, they have the most gorgeous kitchenware and to very reasonable prices! And no, I don´t get any money for saying this – I just really like their products :)!

So because it´s old product, I´ll add you similar ones to the link list, just in case you want to create something similar. It´s a really easy idea. Some patterned paper on the background and then 3D stickers and die-cuts and a stamped sentiment.

Have a lovely crafty day!
