´tis the season

Hello and happy Monday!! Let me share one last stash busting card with you, created with a ton of older product.

For this one I took an older polka dotted patterned paper on which I had applied adhesive in big dots and then poured some Distress Glitter on top. I think is goes back to this Distress Glitter video back from the day.

On top of that Distress Glitter layer I placed my Holly stencil and applied texture paste thru it onto the background. I love turquoise and white together. For decor I took some really old Prima Marketing paper flowers, two brads (also very, very old ones) and attached them onto the card. The sentiment is by STAMPlorations and was stamped with black ink onto a leftover piece of white cardstock.

I am still stash busting and going to continue next year. Because a) I have too much old product, b) it is a lot of fun. Wishing you a good start into your new week, whatever you are doing. I am still on Christmas holiday and we are also in on our 3rd lockdown. Hoping your week will be a nice one!

Happy crafting,

Super easy Christmas cards

Hello lovelies and happy Friday!!! Today´s card share is again very simple and easy to do. Well, if you need to make plenty of cards, simple and easy is the fastest way to go, unless you start in June :-). Which I didn´t, so I need to find other solutions to make plenty of cards quickly.

There too, very done in just a few minutes. Cut the background paper into size, adhere on place, apply ribbon. Then fussy cut the sentiment pieces and adhere on place with 3D foam pads & Voilá! All done.

And again I´ve got the ribbon box open and used a few centimeters of ribbon. Not that you will notice any changes in my ribbon stash yet… that will take a few Christmases, but I try to do something with them :).

Here too, the ribbon just perfectly matches the sentiment piece! And the papers on the background are the older ones I´m trying to use up on my Christmas cards this year. Sooo many cards from just one piece of paper!!!

Have a great weekend, lovelies, whatever you are doing! Let´s try and make the best of the situation, even though Christmas just isn´t going to be the same like last year.

Christmas cards in brown and red tones

Hello lovelies and happy Thursday! I bet you are already fed up with my Christmas card posts, but I am not ready to stop sharing this years cards yet :). So hang in there! Soon, this too shall be over and you will see other things here too :). But for now, here is my card share for today:

I used older ribbons from my never-ending ribbon stash 😉 and papers by Canvas Corp. I really like how these look like! Simple but fun!

For the rest, I just simply layered the papers on top of each other and added the ribbon in between. So no difficult techniques, just simple cutting and adhering. I really like the combination of red and kraft tones together. Looks kind of vintagey and old fashioned.

What type of cards did you make this year? And what colours were your favorites? And what do you think about yellow as a Pantone color of the year? I love yellow, so it´s a good one for me, but I know that you either love or hate it. So what´s it for you?

How are your Xmas preparations getting along? We have all the cookies done. Check out the supersize Moomin Gingerbread cookies we did!!! They are 23cm´s tall! So everyone will get a personalized one as a table card for Christmas. Going to look fun on the Christmas dinner table, I think :). Christmas this year will be so different, but at least this will bring a smile on everyone´s face (I hope).

Wishing you a great day!

Simple Christmas cards with patterned paper

Hello lovelies and happy Wednesday! Today I´m stopping by to share another quick set of Christmas cards. For these cards I again used some older produt from my stash and added Canvas Corp papers as well as some stenciling and stamping to them.

Basically I´ve just taken a leftover stenciled piece (left card) and added it on top of the patterned paper. Before adhering it on place, I bound a ribbon around the background paper. I have so many ribbons that I really need to find a place for them! Christmas cards always look great with small ribbon elements, so there.

For the second card I just fussy cut the Canvas Corp paper, added a ribbon around it for fun detail and adhered it onto the background paper with 3D foam pads. That way it has more dimension.

So very easy cards to do. The glitter piece is done using Nuvo Glitter Paste and a STAMPlorations stencil, but it´s a leftover from a previous card already, so I just used the piece up here. Then just added the stamped holiday sentiment – this time stamped with red. I usually mainly use black, but wanted to try another color here.

And that is my Christmas card share for today. I´m really happy to be using up older product on these cards. They also work very well with new product, too. And the stash busting can continue :).

Hope your week is getting along well!

Cute Christmas cards

Hello everyone and happy Sunday! Today I´m stopping by to share one more set of Christmas cards, this time again, created with Christmas papers by Mintay Papers.

For this set, like on the previous ones, I used only little additional decoration. Just some ribbon or a tiny resin snowman and a cute doily. I didn´t want to cover the beautiful papers too much, as they are very pretty on their own.

I´ve also again added some Nuvo Drops here and there onto the cards for additional sparkle, but that is pretty much all I did. I just adore these papers so much on their own :).

Wishing you a lovely Sunday and hope I could inspire you a little today. Happy crafting,
