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!

Congratulations – card, vol. 1

Hello and happy Thursday! Today I´m back with another clean and simple card share using a Pinkfresh Studio / Altenew stamp and die set with my stencil design from STAMPlorations.

I´ve used the „build a flower“ stamp set and then die cut it with the matching die to create the flower. For the background I used Distress Ink in Speckled Egg tone with my RagRug stencil. The stamped sentiment is by Stampin´ Up! And the dots are done with Nuvo Vintage Drops. Very clean in style, but I just love the white space here!

Today would have been my dad´s 81st birthday. He has been gone for 29 years now. I´ve spent 24 of those years abroad. Today I´m again thinking about him on his birthday. Thus a birthday card share for today. I hope you have a good one, dad!

Happy crafting,

Thankful for you – card, vol. 4

Hello everyone and happy Saturday! Today I´m stopping by to share one more card from the series I did a while back. I really do like creating clean-and-simple cards from time to time!

For this card I used one of my stencils (available at STAMPlorations) and a stamp and die set by Pinkfresh Studio / Altenew.

I find this stamp and die set so practical. See, I am not much of a flower colorer (well, I haven´t really put so much effort into it so far, because it wasn´t my main interest until now :)..). So, this type of stamps are perfect for a girl like me. Pick a color in various shades and stamps. EASY!

Then die cut, add a background and a die cut sentiment and you are good to go. And I get many cards done in one sitting :).

Happy crafting,

Miss you, Mom – card

Hello, it´s my turn to share another card tutorial over at Elizabeth Craft Designs blog today. Now, I haven´t seen my mom since Christmas 2019 due to the pandemic, so for this Mother´s Day I made a card that says what I feel. I could imagine that there are other people out there, who a dealing with the same problem, so I thought I´d share this card with you all today. But if you would rather like to say that you love your mom, then just change the sentiment. Easy!

For this card, I´ve created an easy-to-follow photo step-by-step. Here is how you can create this card:

Step 1: Start by die cutting 3 sets of the Ginko leaves from white Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step 2: Use green, yellow and pink Distress Ink tones and ink the die cut Ginko leaves.

Step 3: Cut a piece of blue cardstock to fit your card base size. Then adhere the inked Ginko leaves onto the blue cardstock either with Clear Double Sided Adhesive or liquid glue – whatever you prefer. Next cut off all excess pieces with scissors.

Step 4: Take a piece of white Soft Finish Cardstock and using the Build Your Own Sentiment 1 stamp set, stamp the word „mom“ with black ink onto it.

Step 5: Take a piece of white foam rubber and attach it onto Clear Double Sided Adhesive sheet, then take the Blackboard Alphabet die set and die cut the words „miss“ and „you“ with your die cutting machine. Arrange and adhere the words onto the background piece. Then fussy cut the word mom into a suitable size and add Craft Drops for decor. When the drops are dry, adhere the piece onto a card base. I also stamped and fussy cut a little heart from the same stamp set and added it to the card, but that is totally optional.

This is how the finished card looks like. And it is still flat enough to put into mail! I hope my mom likes the card and I hope you enjoyed this little card tutorial. And like always, by changing the sentiment and the colours you can use the same basic idea for different occations!

See you again next month with another Elizabeth Craft Designs tutorial.

Owl card

Hello and happy Sunday! Today I´m stopping by to share a clean and simple birthday card with you. I really like this owl stamp, therefore I built my card aroud it.

I first took the Onions in Raws stencil and applied Distress Ink Speckled Egg tone thru it onto the white card base. Then I stamped the owl with black stamp ink and colored it with Distress Oxide tones in brown, grey and blue.

The stamp image has a matching die for it, so I just die cut the owl and adhered it to the card with 3D foam. For finishing touches I added a Stampin´ Up! stamp sentiment and some Nuvo Drops. That´it. I really like creating these very clean and simple and even monochromatic cards at the moment.

Wishing you all a fabulous Sunday and a good new week!
