Hello everyone and happy Sunday! Today I´m stopping by to share a twin baby card with you. The person receiving this card does not like pink nor blue (no traditional baby colours), so I went with neutrals this time.
I used plenty of older papers from my stash and added some cute stamped and fussy cut elephants (stamp by Starving Artistamps) to the card. The white dots are done with Nuvo Drops – love the basic white colour so much! Might need to go and buy another bottle of that goodness!
This card is bigger in size (A5) and has very basic elements on it. I wanted to keep the card simple and clean in design and figured that the polka dot papers add the necessary cuteness factor to a baby themed card.
I hope you had a lovely Mother´s Day. Wishing you a great start into a new week. I have been back to work for a week now and it´s still very strange and I find it hard to adjust to the new normal. I noticed that grocery shopping and shopping in general is not much fun these days. So was happy to go straight back home from work, without any stops in between, unless totally necessary.
Getting used to this „new normal“ after such a long period of social distancing felt akward past week. I also felt totally overwhelmed meeting people again, it kinda drained me out, to be honest. Maybe the new week will be different? We will see…
Hello everyone and happy Saturday! Today I´d like to share a Shimmer Powder background card (incl. a video) with you. This is a very colorful and bright card, so very different to the last one I posted :).
I´ve used three tones of Tonic Shimmer Powder on the background with some white embossed leaf patterns and also added a pink delicate German Tonic Sentiment to the card. For decoration, I could not resist to add some Nuvo Drops onto the flower centers. For a change, I´ve crated a video for you to watch, featuring all the steps. I hope you like it!!
Wishing you all a great weekend & happy crafting,
Hello and happy Friday!! Today I´d like to share a vintage style Mother´s Day card with you. This again was built together from various older pieces from my paper stash, also again featuring some of Just A Gild With Ideas digi/hybrid papers.
The background piece again is from a paper pack cover sheet which I saved. It makes for a perfect card background here. I then added some fussy cut hybrid paper elements in a cluster as a focal point to the card. The „Zum Muttertag“ (=for Mother´s Day) sentiment is a German sentiment die by Tonic Studios. I die cut it from a watercolor paper I had misted with purple spray ink.
There are glossy details added with the Tonic Crystal Gloss in the middle of the card (No. 1) and also some tiny Nuvo Glitter Dorp details here and there in the flower elements. This card would be perfect for a grandmother for example.
That´s my crafty share for today, hope to see you around, I´ll be sharing another fun card project this weekend here on my blog.
Hello lovelies and Happy Wednesday!! Even though it is almost Easter, I haven´t put up any Easter cards so far this year. Instead of Easter I am creating birthday card and celebration cards of different types at the moment. Yes, it is that time of the year again for me… birthdays and celebrations following each other.
This card is again created with the new Edge Dies by Tonic Studios. This one is called Glorious Gate and I am in love with the pattern. It is so elegant and works for so many different occations! Just love this one!!
For this card I again first created a two-toned misted background using pink and yellow spray ink tones. Next I stamped the flower image and colored it with Distress Ink tones and a water tank brush by Nuvo.
I also added some faux stitching around the edges with a black pen to create more interest to the card. The bold flower is the focal point and is by Rubber Dance stamps.
I´ve also added color splatters onto the background in green and pink tones just for a fun detail and stamped a hashtag sentiment (by Tim Holtz) with black ink. Here the edges are open, so you can better see what is inside the card. Before adhering the background onto my card base I adhered the edges on place with a regular paper glue by Tonic. It dries very fast and holds really well.
I hope I could inspire you with my card project today. Be sure to come back for more again this week. Happy crafting!
Hello lovelies and happy Monday! Today I´m sharing a card that is actually full of pink tones. I was playing with some of the Tonic Studios new edge dies and this card was a result of that play.
I know, it practically jumps at you, it is soo pink. But hey, sometimes it´s ok to go totally crazy while crafting, right? For this one I again used the Rainbow Rose Edge die cut die byTonic Studios. I really like this die alot!
Underneath the pink die cut edge pieces there is a Tonic German Sentiment that I cut in two parts to be able to hide it behind the ribbon bow. I´ve also added some rose stamping around the lower and upper edge of the card. This stamp is in the Magnificent Magnolia clear stamp set, also by Tonic Studios. I then colored the roses with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink and a Nuvo water tank brush. The roses are so very pink they really make this card so corny ;-)… but I don´t mind. Finally on this last photo you can see the inside of the card, when the Rainbow Rose edges are open. I´ve used spray inks on the background to create a two-toned background look – a golden and a pink tone.
That´s it from me today, I hope you survived this pink explosion post :-).
