Soar high

Hello and happy Sunday! Today I´m stopping by to share another Bloom Cutups ATC card, done with STAMPlorations new paper goods product. I´ve shared a card yesterday and this is another one done with the same paper goods product line.

There is a total of 14 new products in this product category at the STAMPLorations store and more will be added bit by bit. So stay tuned for more awesome paper goods in the future.

For this card I used the same products like on my previous cards from yesterday: Art Marks #3 stamp set, New Day clear stickers, Art Marks #1 border die and the Bloom Cutups ATC paper goods. This time I used a gelli printed DIY background as a base and added the stamping, the border die a well as the Bloom Cutup and the sentiment on top. So this card is again full-on mixed media crazy :). Just the way I like it!

Also do stop by the STAMPlorations blog for more inspiration project shares around the new peper goods collection as well as the store to getyourself some of your own :)!

Wishing you all a lovely day and happy crafting,

Live your dreams

Hello and happy Saturday! STAMPlorations recently added new paper goods to their product selection and I got to play with the Bloom Cutups ATC Ephemera. So today I´m sharing a set of cards done with that product.

There are card fronts, colorables, and ephemera — all created for artsy crafters to play with and create fab projects. They’re some of the most gorgeous designs professionally printed on 120# (325 gsm) matte white cardstock. There are 14 new products in this category as of today, and more will be added and featured in the future. But today´s post is all about Bloom Cutups ATC. Here is what I did with them:

I used the Art Borders #1 in combination with the Bloom Cutups ATC paper goods and the Art Marks stamp set number 3 to create the card.

I took a piece of yellow cardstock and stamped random patterns with the Art Marks 3 stamp set (with black stamp ink) onto the background. Next I added a die cut border with the Art Borders #1 die using green cardstock. Then I adhered the Bloom Cutups ATC piece as my focal point to the card and I finished the card off with a New Day Clear Sticker and a button with some twine.

I really like how the flowers on the Bloom Cutups ATC piece really stand out. The immediaately bring the whole card alive. And you could totally also fussy cut them and add them to your project on their own.

I´ll share another take tomorrow. Be sure to stop by for that!

Gratulation

Hello and happy Wednesday! It´s time for another stash busting card project share! Some of you who have been crafting as long as I have, might recognize some of the product on this card as very old stash. Crafty antiques, almost :).

The background paper is from my desigm team time kits at the Wild Hare Kits and the neon flower is back from 2005 or so. I don´t even remember which company made them. And the flower stem, that is very, very old Pink Paislee if I remember correctly. I used to order boxes from their storage sales back then. I´ve got plenty of chipboard images, die cuts and such from that time still in my stash. But as you can see, they still totally work and can be combined with newer product!

And I haven´t bought ANY paper for a looong time. The only things I buy at the moment are stuff I´ve ran out of or need refilling and a few occational stencils and stamps here and there. Have you tried anything similar? I am going to be honest that it is still very hard to keep myself from ordering lovely new product, but I decided I need to first reduce product that I have.

And it feels good to use them up! It makes me happy to see some of them finally ending up on a project of some kind!

Wishing you a lovely day!

Für Mama – Tonic Studios

Hello and Happy Saturday! Today I´m stopping by to share a Mother´s Day card with you, created using some Tonic Studios products as well as some older flowers from my craft stash as well as older patterned papers.

Recently I had a lovely person stay in my studio who volunteered to organize my paper stash by color. And while she was doing it, I discovered so many forgotten paper treasures! I am more  a b-side-crafter when it comes to papers and how my papers are not only sorted by color, but also have the b-side facing the front in the folder. Heaven for me :)!

So I have started de-stashing my papers by using them :). And I just love this background paper in combination with the strong pink cardstock and the older flowers. These are really old – they go back to around 2006-2007!!! In my opinion they work really well with the Tonic Studios German Sentiment Die, Nuvo Glitter Drops and the background paper :).

And tomorrow is Mother´s Day, so what better theme to share a card about. This card was really easy to make – just adhere the papers, die cut the sentiment from a residue piece of inked paper, add some Nuvo Drop details, layer the flowers and attach together with a brad and adhere everyting on place. That´s pretty much it!

Wishing you all a great weekend and Mother´s Day!!!
Happy crafting,
