Through her eyes challenge

Hello there everyone and welcome to another crafty friends challenge organized by my lovely friend Tina. This time it all started from an old diary Tina found at an antique store (it´s almost 100 years old!). She shared a few pages of it with the participants and it was totally upto us, what we did with those (here is an example of one of the pages).

So here is what I did: I used a piece of one diary sheet (printed from a photo) and created an altered woodblock piece around it. I´ve painted the block with Tattered Angels Decor&DIY paints (mixed black and white) and then adhered the diary sheet onto the block with paper glue.

On top of the paper there are droplets of Glimmer Mist in Vanilla Breeze tone. The paper is “mounted to the block” with the 7Gypsies brass studs and decorated with pink twine, a chipboard sentiment and a 7gypsies lady picture.

I tinted the chipboard piece with Sugar Maple Glimmer Mist tone to match the rest of the colors and also added some of that tone to the picture of the lady under the angel figure.   The angel is by Relics and Artifacts as are the wings. For additional decor I added some Tonic Studios Nuvo Glitter and Crystal drops (see full list of product at the end of this post).

I really enjoyed creating this project around an old diary page. I plan on adding two more wooden blocks to this so they later create  a set. Maybe the next challenge will give me the possibility to do so? 🙂

Now hop over to Tina´s blog to see what she did and also find links to the other participants blogs there! OR see some of them listed here:

Tina, thank you again for yet another wonderful challenge!! Really love beeing part of your challenges – already looking forward to what will come next 🙂

Happy crafting,

Merry Christmas – Mixed Media Card Challenge, December reveal

Hello lovelies! Time to share the December Mixed Media Card Challenge blog´s challenge with you today! This time you are asked to use GOLD and as an optional element, add STARS to your CARD!


This is my take for the reveal:

Sanna Lippert - gold and stars die cut die card

I´ve again used some Elizabeth Craft Designs products on this card, as well as some lovely Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist spray inks.

I first took a piece of white cardstock, die cut that in 1/3 and 2/3 sized pieces using the Holiday Garlands 2 die cut set. That way I had an upper piece, a middle garland part and a lower piece. Next I misted the upper part with purple, dark red, aubergine and black spray ink colors (all by Tattered Angels). After that I added white acrylic paint splatters onto that background. It now looks like the universe/space. I really like this look!!!

I then took the lower piece and attached Clear Double Sided Adhesive onto it and poured golden Silk Microfine Glitter onto that piece and polished that with my finger to make it all shiny and stick to the adhesive (here is a video how to do that). When the glitter piece was finished, all I had to do was to adhere all pieces onto their places with paper glue. Next I stamped a sentiment with black ink and inked the background with pink Distress Ink. I then fussy cut the stamped image along the edges. Finally I added some half pearls onto the garland for decoration.

This card I pretty clean and simple looking even though it takes quite a lot of media to make it :). I hope you will find this months challenge interesting and join in with us! Who does not love gold???!!! Hope to see you at MMCC this month, lovelies!!!
