Welcome Baby Boy

Hello and happy Monday! Today I am interrupting the Christmas card share posts with a cute baby boy card.

I was asked to create a baby boy card for work and this is what I came up with.

I´ ve used light blue alpha stickers to create the sentiment and embossing folders to make the polka dot background paper. The ribbon is from my older stash and the hippo is die cut with a Elizabeth Craft Designs die cut die, as are the scalloped and plain circles.

For coloring details on the hippo I´ ve used my Swiss Color colored pencils as well as Neocolor II crayons. On the scallop circle I used liquid pearls to add some detail.

A clean and simple, yet cute baby boy card resulted from that. I really like this tiny hippo die cut die very much and it is so perfect for baby cards! Hope you liked the inspo!!

Christmas card set

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I am again quickly stopping by to share another set of Christmas cards with you.

For these cards I have used the die cut trees left over from my previous cards and simply picked up a very bold colored background to go with a white tree and sentiment.

For the baubles I´ ve used liquid pearls and Nuvo Drops in somewhat matching colours.

And for outlining I used the Signo uni-ball white pen on every card.

Simple and easy cards and flat – so also easier to mail.

The stamped sentiments are done with Klartext stamps again.

I think I need some more Christmas sentiment stamps in German and maybe a few ones in Finnish too, I already have plenty in English in my stash.

I am still thinking of creating a few “not so simple” cards for this season too. Let´ s see what I can come up with. Until then, take care!

Frohe Weihnachten

Hallo and happy Monday! Today I am sharing yet another Christmas card with you.

This time I used the snowflakes that were left over from my previous cards and placed them on a piece of red lace ribbon. For the background I used the Vicki Boutin Warm Wishes paper collection again.

I attached the stamped Merry Christmas sentiment (stamped with a Klartext stamp) onto the snowflake with a small red brad. On the other snowflakes I used liquid pearls in the center.

I really like this polka dot paper very much. And the white snowflake die cuts add a nice freshness to the card.

Thanks for stopping by today! Take care,

Snowflake cards

Hello and happy Saturday! Here is another set of Christmas card I did the other day. Here I again used Elizabeth Craft Designs dies to create the white banner piece into the middle.

Inside the snowflake I used either holographic or golden cardstock and added a brad from my older stash as a focal point. The ribbons are also from my older stash. Good to use up older product again.

The stamping is done with Klartext stamps and the papers are from Mintay Paper Sweetest Christmas collection and Vicki Boutin´ s Warm Wishes collection.

It is so easy to make a few cards using the same basic idea, but by changing the colours and paper styles the design results several different type of cards so easily.

I hope I could inspire you a little with these simple-to-do cards!

Christmas tree cards

Hello and happy Thursday! Today´ s cards are done using a Elizabeth Craft Designs die cut dies as a starting point.

I first die cut the tree with a tree die cut die and then used a rectangular stitched die to create the white focal point area. I matted the die cut tree area with a recycled Christmas present tag piece and adhered everything on a blue patterned paper and added the Klartext stamped sentiment.

For the second card I used the same dies and added a piece of shiny / holographic paper underneath. Then I added a scalloped frame and a Klartext stamped sentiment onto the card. The background paper is from the Vicki Boutin Warm Wishes collection. On top of the holographic paper I added some liquid pearls in red – you can see them better in the second photo :). It is quite hard to take a photo of this type of paper…

I am really enjoying recycling bits from last year (yes, I save lots of things for later…) and reusing them on new cards. I mean, why not?

This is all for today. See you again tomorrow!
