STAMPlorations 6th birthday celebration – Day three

Hello everyone and happy Sunday! Today is day 3 of STAMPlorations 6th birthday celebrations!! Be sure to check out the STAMPlorations blog for all details and fun prizes!!!!

For the day 3 celebration I´ve created a set of stenciled cards for which I used my newest STAMPlorations stencil line stencils. So here goes, this is the first set:

I used the Tapestry and Onion is Raws stencils on the above cards and I love how they turned out.

What I did, is I basically started by applying Distress Ink and/or Distress Oxide onto a piece of white paper. Next I chose a stencil I wanted to use and placed it onto the inked paper. I then applied a layer of Distress Oxide thru the stencil, either using only one colour or mixing and blending colours.

After that I die cut the circles and decorated them with washi tapes, brads and flowers and/or stickers as well as Nuvo Drops and roller stamp sentiments. Next I adhered the finished circles to a yellow toned card background and stamped a sentiment and added outlining. That´s it. Fun, fast and easy.

For my second set of cards I used the same basic idea of a circle, except I just added stenciled details using Distress Oxides only. The stencils I used are Art Flowers and Retro Hearts, also from my line of stencils. For my card centerpiece I chose to add a heat embossed „Congrats“ sentiment. The stamp is also by STAMPlorations. And for these cards I´ve also inked a white card base into a matching tone (either yellow or blue). And for additional decorational elements I´ve added Nuvo Confetti or Sequins.

Now be sure to hop over to the STAMPlorations blog to see what the rest of the team girls have created for today´s celebration post. And join the fun by creating a wishlist and link it or create a fun project yourself and link it up or leave some love to the desing team members´ blogs!

Appreciated – TAGplorations May Challenge reminder

Hello lovelies! It´s time for the TAGplorations May challenge reminder :). I hope you have played along, but if not, there is still time to get your tag in!!! For this reminder post I created another pink tag using a similar technique, like on my reveal post here.

Except this time I replaced the main flower with paper flowers and I also added some chipboard leaves to create more texture and layers. Everything elss was done the same way as the first tag.

Even though I used the same materials these tags still look quite different! Funny, how changing the focal point makes such a big difference.

So lovelies, there is still time to join in with us. Here´s a reminder, what this months theme is about (+ additionally, use Vellum): Hope to see you at STAMPlorations!!! And I am also adding my discount code here, feel free to use it, when shopping at the STAMPlorations store 🙂

You are appreciated tag – STAMPlorations

Hello lovelies and Happy Thursday! Today I´m again sharing another tag project with you. I love the combination of orange and pink on a craft project! While I was creating for the TAGplorations May challenge, I might have created a few more, than only one tag 🙂 …

For this one I used a premade white tag as my starting point. Next I stamped the sentiment „For everything you are appreciated“ several times onto the left side of the tag with embossing ink. Then I poured white embossing powder over the area and heat set it with a heat tool. After that I inked the left side with pink Distress Ink and the right side of the tag with orange Distress Ink.

I then took the Heartfelt Hibiscus clear stamp and sprayed it with a water mist bottle ever so lightly. Then I pressed the wet stamp onto the orange inked area and lifted it off. This resulted the „ghost“ stamp image on the orange ink. For finishing touches I added an embossed sentiment onto a purple piece of cardstock and matted that with a piece of vellum. As a focal point there is a big layered paper flower and also a matching purple ribbon to finish the tag off.

I hope you have joined the TAGplorations challenge – if not HERE is you chance!!!

Happy crafting,

You are appreciated tag – TAGplorations May challenge reveal

Hello everyone and happy Tuesday! Today it´s again time to share this months TAGplorations challenge with you. This monts theme is: All About Mom and as an additional element you are asked to use Vellum.

This is my take for the reveal:

I took a piece of vellum and stamped the Heartfelt Hibiscus stamp image onto it, then poured white embossing powder over the stamped image and heat set the powder. Next I flipped the image around and colored it from the reverse side with alcohol markers and then adhered the fussy cut image onto the tag base with clear double sided adhesive tape.

For decoration I added some faux stitching around the edges with a white Signo Uni-ball pen and stamped sentiments from „For The Birds“ stamp set onto dark purple cardstock. Those again got heat embossed with white embossing powder. For finishing touches I added Nuvo Crystal Glaze onto the smaller flowers and silver Nuvo sequins to additional sparcle here and there.

The ribbon has exactly the same color as the purple carstock and the pink patterned paper is from my older stash (still destashing here by using it all up) and got die cut with the Nesting Manila Tag die set´s biggest sized tag die. I think the sentiment fits this months theme really well as we should appreciate what our mom´s do for us!

Now is your turn to play and join our challenge!!! Hop over to the STAMPlorations blog HERE to see what the design team girls created for your inspiration and then submit your own work following the rules (see the STAMP blog for all details!!).

Für Dich – Tonic Studios

Hello everyone and happy Saturday! Today I´d like to share a Shimmer Powder background card (incl. a video) with you. This is a very colorful and bright card, so very different to the last one I posted :).
I´ve used three tones of Tonic Shimmer Powder on the background with some white embossed leaf patterns and also added a pink delicate German Tonic Sentiment to the card. For decoration, I could not resist to add some Nuvo Drops onto the flower centers. For a change, I´ve crated a video for you to watch, featuring all the steps. I hope you like it!!


Wishing you all a great weekend & happy crafting,
