Card for Christening

Hello and happy Monday! Here is a slimline card I created for a girls Christening.

I used die cut dies by Elizabeth Craft Designs (the hearts, hot air balloons and the label) and a German Tonic Studios die cut die sentiment in the middle. The papers are from my older stash and the little birdies are from Studio Calico back in the day when I subscribed their monthly kits.

The little dots are done with Ranger Liquid Pearls and Tonic Nuvo Glitter Drops. The label is adhered with 3D foam to add dimension to the card.

Inside the card there is a pocket for a gift card/money/gold coin (this is a popular tradition here) to be added inside.

The dies I used are sadly retired. But if you want to make a similar card, I am sure there are alternatives available at your favorite store. I will add alternatives to the links – should you be interested.

Have a fabulous day!

Welcome baby girl – card

Hello and happy Friday! Today I am sharing a baby girl card for a change.

I used Elizabeth Craft Designs die cut dies (the hippo and the circle and scalloped circle dies) to create the focal point for this card. The glitter stickers are from Sassafras (very old own stash) and the paper are also from my well hoarded paper collection :). I die cut the hippo from a pink patterned papar, added a bow from red cardstock and teeth from white paper. I think she is very, very cute!

This is a slimline sized card, so I could play with papers on the background and the card turned out quite sweet with these papers. Around the scalloped circle there are Nuvo Glitter Drops for a tiny additional detail.

I adhered the hippo circle with 3D foam to make it stand out from the card background even more. The ribbon behind it is from my ribbon box. I incorporated lots of older product to this card and I love using up all these favorites of my from back in the day.

With this card I am wishing you all a lovely weekend!

Alles Gute zum Baby

Hello and happy Sunday! Today I am sharing another baby themed card with you:

There´ s a brand new baby boy in town and he deserves a big welcome, so there, this is the card for the occation :).

I used Moda Scrap papers, Elizabeth Craft Designs die cut dies and Stampin´ Up! stamps with Distress Oxide “moved lawn” tone for this card.

I actually ended up creating three cards in one sitting. I will share the last one tomorrow :). Once I started making a christening card, I noticed that I had enough papers left to do a few more, so I made a set. But all for different occations.

Wishing you a lovely start into the new week tomorrow!

Zur Taufe

Hello and happy Friday! Today I am sharing a card I made for a baby boy´ s Christening:

This one is in slimline format and has papers from a Moda Scrap paper collection I got from Elizabeth Craft Designs a few years back. I just love those cut little giraffes and could not resist using them. The centerpiece is done with a Stampin´ Up stamp and Distress Oxide inks and is layered on top of a Elizabeth Craft Designs scalloped circle die cut piece. The sentiment is die cut with a Tonic Studios German die cut die and on the bottom I have used a few Nuvo Drops.

The ribbon is from my older stash, but worked out perfectly with the colours of the papers. I chose a very clean and simple design, because I wanted to showcase the gorgeous papers.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great weekend!

DAP-Journal – June 20-21st, 2022

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I am sharing more pages from my Daily Art Practice journal. This time it´ s an “add-in” bit to the page in tag form:

On one side I simply used the Almanac page as a focal point with the fabrics, then added some glitter butterflies, old book page bits, a piece of ribbon and an alcohol inked mirror cardstock die cut.

On the other side of the tag I combined the bold colours of the Almanac page with Dina Wakley washi tape, a piece of organza ribbon flower (gifted to me years ago by my crafty friend Lizzy) and on top of the organza bit as a flower center I again used an alcohol inked, die cut mirror cardstock piece.

Gosh, I just love making tags like these so much! Maybe I should do a creative tag journal of some kind at some point. Need to write that down in my to-do calendar :).

Have a great rest of the week lovelies!
