Christmas cards 2022 – Set 4

Hello and happy Saturday! Today I am sharing yet another set of Christmas cards. This time done solely using the Vicky Boutin Warm Wishes collection.

For the background I used the gorgeous pink and red polka dotted paper. I really like these two colours together! As a centerpiece on both cards I used a journaling card from the same paper collection and on the upper one also added a Christmas bauble from the same collections chipboard stickers. The ribbon on the back is from my own stash.

For this card I did the same steps, except I did a bow from the ribbon and added half pearls to the journaling card for extra decor.

These two cards are my favorites from this season so far! I hope I could inspire you abit with simple and easy-to-make Christmas card ideas, too. Have a great weekend and take care,

Christmas cards 2022 – Set 3

Hello and happy Friday! Today´ s Christmas card set is a mix of products by Fancy Pants, Vicky Boutin and Canvas Corp Brands. It´ s a bit like “something old and something new”, except it´ s for Christmas.

For the first card I used a premade card base from Vicky Boutin´ s Warm Wishes collection and fussy cut the tag from the same collection papers. The puffy stars are by Fancy Pants (older collection) and the tiny “badge” with 24 on it, is by Canvas Corp Brands. For dimension I used 3D foam on the background.

For this card I used a cute picture I fussy cut from a present tag and reused here. The paper is again Vicky Boutin Warm Wishes collection, as is the Chipboard Sticker. The stamped sentiment is by Klartext.

For the last card I used Vicky Boutin Warm Wished paper as the cards background, then added a die cut frame with a Canvas Corp paper sentiment on top. The wreath is also by Canvas Corp Brands – fussy cut and adhered on place with 3D foam. I also added some shine with Stickles to the wreath.

And another few peeps covered with these Xmas cards again :). Thanks for stopping by and taking a look! Have a good day and take care,

Schönen Ruhestand

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I´m stopping by to share a retirement card of another kind. I have still some of the lovely Canvas Corp Brands papers left from my design team time in their team and they were perfect for this card assignment.

It´s a retirement card for someone who has been working for a very long time in a company that has to do with certification and norms and regulations as well as safety. Thus the “denglish” (german translated into english word for word) sentiment “all in green area” is just perfect for this card. Also the clock (=no need to set the alarm clock any more) and the german explanation underneath work really well for this purpose. The paper goods are all from Canvas Corp and the stamps are all Klartext, except for the retiment sentiment inside. That is by Stampin´ Up.

You will not come across a retirement card like this anywhere else. It is unique. I really do hope the person receiving this also “get´s” it, you know?

That´s all for today, hope your day is getting along nicely!

Alles Gute!

Hello and happy Wednesday! I used to to this type of cards ALOT when I still did plenty of scrapbook layouts. I loved using graphic patterned paper on the card backgrounds and then adding tiny bits on top with some pattern stamping in black.

So this feels really good again to do this type of cards. And it comes together so naturally still. I´ve used plenty of Studio Tekturek papers and REALLY old glass drops to decorate the card.

The stamping is done using some of my older Stampin´Up! stamp stash. So I managed to sneak in some older product too. The rest is very new Studio Tekturek product :). I just love this type of papers so, so much!

Wishing you all a great mid week!

Set of birthday cards – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello everyone and happy Sunday! Joset Designs at Elizabeth Craft Designs has these gorgeous new backgrounds out and they sent me this set to play with. Lucky me!!! Thank you so much for that, Joset!! I adore this new set. Just look how gorgeous the backgrounds are!

This first card is made using a patterned paper from the ECD store and combined with Brushed Pewter Silk Microfine Glitter and the Leaf Pattern Background die. I also added the Budding Florals die to create some flowers to the card.

I used light blue cardstock from the ECD store for that. Also some Silverado Silk Microfine Glitter is on the top of the flower buds. The sentiment is stamped with Build Your Own Sentiments 1 clear stamp set. And for additional decor I added a few enamel dots in grey.

For my second card I used pink cardstock from the ECD store and die cut the paper using the Organic Triangle Background die. Then I added some clear double sided adhesive (in sheets) onto the die cut background and applied Copper Rose Silk Microfine Glitter onto the open areas.

I love this technique as it is so very easy to create and looks so festive every time. Then I stamped the sentiment using the same stamp set as on the previous card and added some paper flowers from my older stash and a brad to decorate/highlight the card.

For my last card I used the same pink cardstock and the Floral Burst Background die and added the clear double sided adhesive sheet onto the background. Then I poured plenty of Silverado Silk Microfine Glitter onto the open areas and voilá! The shimmery background was done. For decor I again did a sentiment banner using the same stamp set as on the two previous cards.

And for finishing touches I added a premade shaker tulip that I have had in my stash for at least ten years now. I have been trying to reduce that old stash bit by bit, so you will be seeing me adding those older pieces to cards every once and a while.

Now what do you think? Was I promising too much when I said, these background dies are gorgeous?! I think they are just awesome. And can be used in so many ways! Cannot wait to play more with them!

Wishing you all an amazing day and lots of crafty fun!
