Leben ist, was du daraus machst

Hello and Happy Thursday! I hope you haven´t already had enough of my stash-busting cards? This particular one I really, really like. I think it´s the colours maybe. I again used the Truly Grateful Pink Paislee 2×2 paper pads for the background and created this quilt type of pattern with them.

And it´s so funny how all these patterns work together so well. Maybe because the colours go well together.

This, too, was such an easy card to make. Just arranging and adhering the small papers onto the card base, then adding a really, really old Crate Paper Bike Chipboard piece as a focal point and a stamped sentiment on blue cardstock to go with it. The manufacturer of these stamps is Klartext. You can find them here.

Only one more day, lovelies, and it´s weekend again. Sending you lot´s of sunshine and wishing for a nice, relaxing weekend at your end!

Birthday cards

Hello and happy Friday! My stash busting self-challenge is still going strong. I recently found some older Basic Grey papers in my stash and made it to my goald to use them up. As a result I now have a nice set of birthday cards in my card box again.

a total of 5 card – how cool is that!!

I just basically layered the chipboard elements, some rub-ons here and there and the patterned papers onto the card bases. For finishing touches I added some with Elizabeth Craft Designs stamps stamped sentiments. That´s it!

And I love the colours! Perfect for those born in fall :). I am wishing you a fabulous weekend, even though the pandemic numbers keep on rising. Trying to stay positive despite the circumstances.

Have a great weekend and stay healthy!!

Supplies (papers and rub-ons just similar suggestions):

Party! card

Hello lovelies! I am still on my stash busting journey and I made this easy-to-do card with some older product from my stash. I combined two of my faves – Sassafras product and stenciling.

So here is a fun card for a birthday party and/or invitation. This one is really very simple to do. Just place a stencil onto the card base, add two tones of Distress Ink thru it and then decorate with stickers, buttons and sticker alphas! And you can even add some Nuvo Drops for additional fun, if you want. That´s it!

I have piles and piles of stickers I still want to use up – also pleeeenty of buttons in my stash. So it´s good to use one or two here and there! And that monster is perfect for a childrens party theme, right?

That´s it for today. Come back on Friday to see another card that I am sharing here.

See you,

Cheers (way to go) – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello everyone and happy Monday! I´m dropping by today to share a stamped card with you. I´ve made this card with the Dear Lizzy She´s Magic stamp set from my The Wild Hare Kits January kit.

So for this card I only used white cardstock and the stamp set. I stamped the image with the flower stamp first using red and green ink with the leaf and petal pattern and next stamping on top with black stamp ink and the outline flower stamp that was in the set.

For finishing touches I added some Nuvo Drop details here and there. The drops were not in the kit, but are from my own stash. I really like how this card turned out and the fact, that it is so flat -> I can easily put it into an envelope and send it on it´s way.

That´s it from me today, be sure to come back on Wednesday, when I´ll be sharing another The Wild Hare Kits project with you.

Happy crafting,

Zum Muttertag – Tonic Studios

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.

Happy crafting,
