Distress Glitter ATC set – STAMPlorations

Hello there lovelies, another Stencil Sunday is here!! I hope you are enjoying the inspiration delivered by us STAMPlorations girls :). Every Sunday either all or part of the team share an inspirational project created using at least one STAMPlorations stencil. Today is my turn again and here is what I did:

This is how I created the ATCs. My starting point was a piece of plain white cardstock – everything in color is added details :).

Step 1: I cut the plain white cardstock into ATC sized pieces (2 1⁄2 by 3 1⁄2 inches (64 mm × 89 mm)) and added green and blue spray ink onto the background. Next I used a heat gun for drying the ink.

Step 2: Then I place a misted piece under the ARTplorations Square City stencil and adhered the stencil onto the working surface with washi tape. That keeps the pieces from moving around. Next I applied a layer of transparent texture paste thru the stencil with a palette knife onto the surface.

Step 3: For the first ATC I then poured loose Distress Glitter onto the wet texture paste surface and dabbed the residue off with my finger. I let the piece air dry. Using the glitter this way it will stick to the paste when dry and stay shiny.

Step 4: For the next two pieces I mixed the transparent texture paste and the Distress Glitter with a palette knife together and first then applied the paste onto the tag like explained on Step 2. When you use the Distress Glitter this way, it will not result in a soft and shiny surface. It is more a grainy texture with color than a shine surface. If you would use a regular glitter, the result would still stay shiny when dry. That is the difference between Distress and regular Glitter and this technique.

Step 5: I took a piece of patterned paper and a STAMPlorations Trendy Feathers 2 clear stamp set and stamped feathers onto the paper with black ink.

Step 6: Next I took a STAMPlorations Fond Expressions 2 clear stamp set and stamped a sentiment onto a piece of vanilla cardstock. I then fussy cut the stamped sentiments.

Step 7: Now all I needed to do was to decorate the ATC background. I adhered the feather, some pink yarn, a button and the sentiment onto the tag. You cannot see it here, but I also added some white ink splatters in the end for additional detail. Those can be seen on the finished ATC´s.

Hope you have enjoyed today´s Stencil Sunday inspiration by the design team girls!!! Remember you can also join in the fun with us by submitting your mixed media stencil project (any brand goes!!!) to the monthly challenge!!! Just remember, NO CARDS allowed :). For details, go HERE :).

A set of Christmas cards – Canvas Corp Brands

Hello and Happy Friday everyone!!! Did you create handmade Christmas cards this year? I did. I sent a few on their way around the globe very early, as I participated on a Christmas Card Swap for the 4th year in a row. It has become such a fun tradition and I would not want to miss it for anything – if you are interested in joining, then look this group up over at Flickr!!

And then to my first set of cards. I´ve been creating with the lovely Christmas collections (Farmhouse Christmas & Jolly Christmas) from Canvas Corp Brands this year. Let´s start with a set of Farmhouse Christmas cards:

Sanna LippertSanna LippertI love the black and kraft  snowflake paper! It is so very pretty! Here is how I created these cards:

Sanna LippertSanna LippertThis was my starting point. Some brown Glimmer Glam, burlap, patterned paper and a few chipboard pieces. I glued the patterned paper onto white card bases first.

Sanna LippertNext I added droplets of White Metallic High Impact paint onto the patterned paper.

Sanna LippertSanna LippertSanna LippertNext I fussy cut some tags from the Farmhouse tags on Ivory paper and misted them with Verdigris, Turquoise Blue and Vanilla Breeze Glimmer Mist tones.

Sanna LippertWhile the paint and the misted pieces were drying, I painted the chipboard pieces with brown Glimmer Glam tone (Bon Bon).

Sanna LippertAnd while the Glimmer Glam was still wet, I added a thin layer of Rock Candy Distress Glitter over the painted pieces and let that dry. When the paint dries, the Glitter will stick to the surface – no glue needed. Then all I needed to do was to layer the burlap and the misted tags onto the patterned paper. I also added some twine, seam binding, pearls and some silver netting onto the cards. So easy and very fast to create!!

Here is one more extra card – created in a similar way, I have just used various brown tones for coloring the door – the paints are from the Tattered Angels paints range 🙂

Scared yet? – The Crafter´s Workshop

Hi there, today I´d like to share a little start to finish layout video with you that I created for The Crafter´s Workshop. It has been a while since I last posted a video here, so I think it is proper to end this year with at least one more video :). I have used various 6×6 inch stencils on this layout and combined those with different embossing media. I also used the gorgeous 7 Dots Studio „Destination Unknown“ papers here. I was lucky to win a set for me and a scrappy friend earlier this year and I´ve been saving and admiring them for a while now. Sooo..time to finally open the collection and start using them :). Love the colours!! I hope you get inspired to try these techniques and create your own interesting background patterns!

And here is the finished layout – there are more detail photos to be seen on the video :)..:

Greetings of the season

Hi there, you would think that this is the busiest time of the year for me, and it actually is, so I wonder why I still find so much time to take part on challenges at the moment!!?? Veeeery strange..or could it have something to do with the fact that I have not even started considering about Christmas yet. And that thought immediately sets me in panic ;-)…

But what I have been doing is creating Christmas cards. And this particular one was inspired by the current Fusion (Sparkly Christmas) Card Challenge:

I based my card mainly on the sketch and added a few sparkly details (the snowflake is covered with Distress Glitter and the golden doilie adds a bit of sparkle too :). Other than that I just added a stamped sentiment and a few ink splatters onto the background. The chipboard piece is from my older stash. Destashing here again :).

Thanks for a nice inspiration, Fusion Card Challenge Blog :)!

Halloween layout – Pipilonias kreative Welt

Hello there, lovelies!!! Today I´d like to share with you a halloween layout :-). I wanted to enhance the scary photos with the colours and embellishments I chose. This is what I have used:

I first misted the background with 3 different ink spray colours (green, silver and grey). I then added some „oil slick“ splatters here and there and added some stamping as well as faux stitching. The little squares are 3D foam pads which I have treated with Distress Glitter. Other than that I have used plenty of halloween themed stickers, a few flair badges and some chipboard stars. The stars I colored with a Wink of Stella silver brush pen. The black alphas were made using a The Crafter´s Workshop stencil (Kasia´s letters).

So this is a pretty sinister page, but it kinda fits the Halloween theme, I think :).

Happy scrapping,
xoxo, Sanna
