Wedding card – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello everyone, I am up over at Elizabeth Craft Designs blog today with a wedding card idea. I wanted to play with red, green and white and create a fun mixed media card and this is what I ended up making.

I´ve recorded a start-to-finish video for you to watch, to give you a better idea of each and every step. Hope you like it!!!

Have fun watching!!!

..annnddd..while you are at it, make MORE CARDS :). These ones are slightly smaller in size, but feature the same elements and techniques.

Now, I´ve used a leaf die on the cards, that is sadly not available at Elizabeth Craft Designs store anymore, but don´t worry, there is another leaf set (Trio of Leaves) that will also do the trick. Just check out the supply list at the end for that.

Also I use a pearlescent watercolour palette on the leaves and flowers, but Elizabeth Craft Desings has a really nice watercolour palette out, that has gorgeous colours in it. So you could use that one for coloring as well.

For more , do read my original post over at Elizabeth Craft Designs blog too :). See you next month with another card idea again!!!

Happy crafting,

Gnome Christmas cards

Hello everyone and happy Sunday!!! What have you been doing this weekend? Hope you had the possibility to do some crafts?

I had a great weekend combined with crafting, meeting friends and eating out. What else could one wish for :-D. AND of course, crafting! I made a big pile of Christmas cards and here is how they look like:

I´ve combined products by Tonic Studios, Stampingbella, Elizabeth Craft Designs and Copic on my cards. I even did some coloring, can you imagine??? I fell in love with this Gnome stamp at a local craft fair and I had to have it…

For my cards I first stamped plenty of gnome images on white smooth cardstock ( the type that is good for coloring with Copics) and then I created „blue-, red- and green hatted“ images using various Copic markers for coloring.

Next I die cut the images with the matching Gnome die cut die and then chose some matching background papers (see the product list at the end) to go with the colored images. So all cards are pretty monochromatic. There is green glitter cardstock, blue and red cardstock and white one that has stamped snowflakes on them. Always matching the tone the hats are, of course.

After I had die cut and adhered all papers and the gnomes onto the card bases on top of each other, I just needed to add a stamped sentiment and round the edges with a corner chomper. There are pretty clean and simple cards, but I wanted to hightlight the cute gnomes, therefore I went for CAS-style.

That´s it for today. Wishing you a great Sunday and a good start into the new working week. See you tomorrow with a Wild Hare Kits layout project, so be sure to come back then :).

Happy crafting,

Baby card – Tonic Studios

Hello and happy Friday!!! Like promised yesterday, I´m back with another baby card share today again. Here is what I did:

This card is a personalized one, because of it´s recipient. Also there was supposed to be a giraffe on the card and rather green tones than blue ones.

I´ve again used the Garden Gate Layering Die Set by Tonic Studios for die cutting the frame. Parts of it are made from patterned paper, one part is from white cardstock that I inked with green Distress Ink tone and an ink blending tool. The stamp image is from my older stash of stamps. I colored it with Stampin´ Up! markers. The alphas are also old and by Sassafras. And the various green papers are also from older stash of mine. The Nuvo Drops I´ve used, are the tone Bottle Green. I´ve rounded the edges with a corner chomper, by the way.

I really like how the card turned out. Hope the recipient is happy with it too!

See you soon again with another type of projects.

„Happy place“ Art journal page

Hello everybody, today I´m sharing another art journal page for a change. This page is created using Distress Inks and Oxides with a DIY foam stamp. I recently created this set of cards using the same foam stamps and since I had left the stamps out on my table, I used them to create a fun stamped art journal background for this page.

What I´ve done is I first stamped the image randomly onto the page using Distress Oxides and the foam stamp (here is the video on how to make the stamps). I then let the ink dry properly and started coloring the images with Distress Inks and a water tank brush by Nuvo.

I then stamped these DIY face stamp images onto the page with black ink. The image is done on a class held by Louise Nelson last fall in Norway. I then added details using a white gel pen and outlined some of the leaves and flowers to make them „pop“ from the background. Then I added roller stamp sentiments here and there very randomly and applied some black ink splatters for detail. I also outlined the page with a black pen and added a sentiment into the outline-pattern.

Crafting is my go-to thing for relaxation and piece of mind and this page is about that. I enjoyed creating this sheet and really like the bold and colourful background alot.

That´s it from me today. Be sure to come back for some layout fun, created using the Wild Hare Kits October kit, next week.

Until then, happy crafting,
