Birthday cards

Hello and happy Monday! Stash busting journey continues and today I´m sharing yet another set of birthday cards, created with older product. These happen to be older Basic Grey papers, rub-ons and chipboard elements on these cards. I really like to patterns and colours and combined with some Elizabeth Craft Designs stamps and Nuvo Drops they really look great, if I say so myself.

Above is set one. As you can see from the background, there are still a few papers to be used, but I´m almost there :). It´s was a full pack of papers, when I started and look where I am already :).

And set two. These are more clean and simple in style. And even the rub-ons still work well, even though they must be almost 10 years old by now. Awesome quality!

For decor I´ve again added some Nuvo Drops and stamps by Elizabeth Craft Desings. Easy peasy and very effective.

I especially like the one with the stamped flowers on it. I don´t know why, really. Maybe, because the background is solely yellow. One of my fave colours!!! And the stamped flowers just work so well with the paper I think.

That´s all from me today! I should get ready to mail some Xmas cards and think about presents, but for some reason, with the lockdown and all, I just cannot move myself towards such things yet. Have you done all preparations yet? I think I find it hard this year, because there will be no normal Christmas and it just does not feel the same…

Have a great day and take care!

Happy birthday CAS card

Hello and happy Friday!! Yay!! Weekend!! It´s the last one before school starts here in Austria this year. So let´s make the best out of it ;-). I am sharing another birthday card, this time in clean and simple style with you today.

For this card I´ve again added stenciling on a blue cardstock with my Dream Flower stencil and Distress Oxides. I´ve also stamped some flowers with the Spring Fling stamp set on a Shimmer Powder treated watercolor paper and fussy cut those by hand.

After doing the above I just arranged the flowers and leaves, added a stamped sentiment and adhered all on place. Easy peasy!!

What are you going to do this weekend? Maybe some crafting?? Wish you a good weekend,

You are the Best

Hello, and happy Friday! Today I´m sharing another card with you. This one is again created using mainly Elizabeth Craft Designs products. I managed to make a pile of cards the other day and it felt really good. So I think I´m back :).

When I made the bold and colorful card (see my previous post!) and I used the Spring Fling stamp set, it inspired me to create a DIY stamped patterned paper (like on the card above). I love how the fragile flowers look like on the background.

I then just die cut the oval into the middle and added the die cut flower pieces and a stamped sentiment. A little bit of Silk Microfine Glitter on the flowers adds a nice sparkle and a few enamel dots finish the card off.

And it´s all in brown tones. I haven´t used brown in a while, so it was about time. Wishing you a fabulous weekend!

You´re the Best

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I´m stopping by to share another card I created the other day. I am slowly feeling my mojo again and I´m so happy about that. Maybe I just needed a break and a short holiday from everything?

For this card I used mainly Elizabeth Craft Designs products. And I really like how bold and colorful the stenciled background looks like.

I started with these above colours. Blending them onto a piece of white cardstock with an ink blending tool.

For the second layer I tried to pick slightly darker colours and applied them thru the Make Your Mark stencil.

The middle piece is die cut with the Fitted Ovals dies and I´ve inked it the same way like the blended background. I´ve then matted everything on dark cardstock and adhered onto a card base. For finishing touches I added the stamping and used various Elizabeth Craft Designs stamp for the purpose (see products on the supply list).

I´ll leave you with this happy and colorful card today. Come back for the weekend to see a few more card posts as well as my vacation story :).

Clean and simple hexagon cards – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello lovelies and happy Sunday! Today I am again up over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog with a set of clean and simple cards, created using basic die cut dies. My idea was to create a background pattern solely with the hexagon die to show you, that a simple basic die can be used in fun ways!

I also wanted to have a fun and colorful pattern, so I used Distress Inks in three different tones to create a blended color pattern. What better sentiment to add to a card like this than the „wishing you a colorful day“ one :).

I also did a second card in the same manner, this time using the Stitched Hexagons die cut die and another color scheme. This time I used pink, orange and yellow. Also on this card I didn´t do any water splatters. And that again creates a slightly different look to my second card.

I´ve also recorded a video about the card making process for you to watch – I hope you like it! For even more details on the cards and the process, hop over to the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog.

That´s it from me for today, I´ll be sharing another guest designer blog post for Elizabeth Craft Designs in June, so do stop by my (and their) blog for more in June.

Wishing you a great, crafty day!
