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 there everyone and Happy Tuesday! I recently let someone special organize my paper stash by color and while she was at it, I came across bits and pieces of paper that either were to be thrown away or used for something right away. So I chose to use them immeditely. And while the person was organizing, I created a few clean and simple cards with those bits and bobs.
This is a paper pack cover sheet that has different images on it and it´s a nice size for a card on it´s own, so I used those paper pieces as card backgrounds. On this one the dotted flower paper. I also had some Just A Girl With Ideas digi paper still in my stash and these butterflies are from one of her collections. I fussy cut them and layered them on top of each other and then added a Tonic Studios German Sentiment „Für Dich“ (=for you) to the card. I die cut the sentiment from silver foil paper.
And I also created a second card which looks like this:
Here the background is also from the paper pack cover sheet. The blue stars were way too shame to throw away so I used them here as a background. I then added some smaller paper pieces, a stamped sentiment and some Glimmer Glaze droplets onto the card and outlined it with a black pen. Really simple and easy to do. So next time you organize your stash, take a second look on the papers that you have not used for ages, you might find them suitable for a card background, like I did here.
Hello lovelies and Happy Thursday! Today I am dropping by to share a 8,5 x 5,5 inch sized congratulations card with you.
For this card I used a white A4 sized cardstock as my starting point to create the card base. Next I took some watercolor paper and misted it with pink spray ink.
After that I placed and ran the Beautiful Bunch Edge die (only using the inner die piece!) thru my die cutting machine. I cut the same image 4 times to create the background pattern. After that I took the „Glückwunsch“ Tonic German Sentiment die and cut the word in the same manner into the middle of the card. Now I have a lovely pattern on the pink paper and when placed onto a white background, the pattern shows thru really nicely.
For finishing touches I took some Wycinanka chipboards and painted the green with Distress Ink and a Nuvo Water Tank Brush. I then clustered the chipboard leaves and some older Prima flowers from my stash into the upper and lower edge around the die cut word area to give the card a bit more dimension. For decoration I also added some Nuvo Vintage and Crystal Drops (red and light blue) around the flower clusters and outlined the card with faux stitching using a black pen.
I really like how this card turned out and love playing with the new Tonic Edge Dies!
Wishing you a great day and 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 :-).
Hello lovelies, today I´d like to share a feminine birthday card with you. This one has some gorgeous papers on it, designed by Aga Baraniak. Also it features some new Tonic Studios die cut dies.
Since the background paper (by Aga Baraniak) is so very pretty on it´s own, I didn´t want to add anything to it, but just left it as it is. To add tot he beautiful look, I just die cut the Rainbow Rose die cut pattern from pink cardstock (both by Tonic Studios). This particular die is not available at the Tonic Store just yet, but if you look for Edge Dies, you will find a selection of similar ones, like this Ranbow Rose die.
For decorational elements I used some flowers from my older stash (boy, I still have so many of those..). Also a piece of twine decorates the flower border which I created by wripping some hydrangea flowers apart and adding the petals to the card as a „line“. Then I just die cut the German Tonic Sentiment „Alles Gute“ and cut it apart to adhere it in a linear manner. That´s it. A very romantic looking card was done in no time.
Wishing you a great Sunday and happy crafting,
