Weihnachtskarten mit Dani Peuss Dezember Kit

Hallo ihr Lieben! Heute bin ich wieder mal auf Deutsch unterwegs 🙂 (for English, just hit the Google translate botton on the right). Ich habe noch ein paar Projekte zu zeigen, die ich mit dem Dezember Scrapbooking Kit von Dani Peuss gestaltet habe. Da gab es ja diese coolen Vicki Boutin Kartenrohlinge im Kit und an die konnte ich einfach nicht vorbei. Heute zeige ich mal zwei Karten her und eine größere Menge wird gegen Ende der Woche noch folgen.

Ich habe die Kartenrohlinge einfach immer halbiert um einen doppelten Nutzen aus dem Papier zu erzielen; auf dieser Weise kann ich pro Rohling immer zwei Karten gestalten. Und das ist ganz praktisch bei der Menge an Weihnachstkarten, die ich jedes Jahr brauche.

Die erste Karte is super simpel zu machen: einfach eine Christbaumkugel-Handstanze nehmen und einige “Kugeln” stanzen, das Hintergrundpapier aufkleben, die Kugeln oben drauf und aus den Vicki Boutin Papieren aus dem Kit passende Sprüche dazu schneiden und kleben. Danach muss man nur mehr mit Glitzerkleber (Nuvo) die Schüre “zeichnen” und wenn man mag, noch ein paar Chipboard-Elemente dazu kleben. Diese sind auch im Kit vorhanden.

Für die zweite Karte habe ich den weißen Hintergrund mit dem Klartext-Stempel Nr. 1133 “13 x Frohe Weihnachten” gestempelt. Und zwar so, dass ich den Stempelabdruck mehrmals hintereinander verwendet habe. Auf dieser Weise erziehlt man verschiden starke Stempelabdrucke, die den Hintergrund viel interessanter erscheinen lassen. Dazu habe ich einfach mit einer Kreis-die cut die einen Kreis aus den Vicki Boutin Warm Wishes Papieren gestanzt und auf dem Hintergrund aufgeklebt. Oben drauf kam dann der süße Hirsch (auch im Kit vorhanden) mit etwas Glitzerkleber drauf und unten drunter lief noch ein Organza-Bändchen für Deko-Zwecke.

Das war alles für heute von mir – wir sehen uns mit weiteren Kit-Projekten noch gegen Ende dieser Woche wieder!! Ich wünsche Euch einen wunderschönen Tag und nicht so viel Weihnachtsstress :).

You are wonderful

Hello and happy Friday! Remember last week when I created a slimline 70th birthday card? Well, while I was creating that one, I had some leftover tinted paste on my palette, so I wiped it into a brown background. As I looked it the next day, I wanted to make a card with that piece, too. Here is what I ended up creating:

I really like the fall colour combination of the paper with the stenciled roses on it. Then some Gonis lace border, some old paper flower in same colours, a brad from my junk box and a Klartext stamp on top and voilá! The card was done.

I really like the look of this card. And you know what happened? I ended up emptying the whole jar of the lace paste at ONCE!!! I figured I had so many molds in my stash that I could fill them with the paste and see what happens; if it will work with thicker molds too. And IT DID! So I have now plenty of decor pieces done and waiting to get used. I had totally forgotten how fun it is to work with molds. And this paste makes them a bit flexible, so they don´ t break that easily. I will make sure I let you know when I use them on my projects :).

Have a great weekend, lovelies!

Klug war´ s nicht..

Hello and happy Friday! Today´ s project share is another mixed media card with a funny sentiment. It says something like this translated: “It might not have been smart, but it was cool”.

I´ ve created the background with Scribble Sticks, Brusho´ s, Distress Paints and some Gainsai Tambi Starry Colors. I also added some stenciling with two of my STAMPlorations stencils. For finishing touches I added a stamped Klartext stamp sentiment.

I really like the gold watercolour as a contrast to the blues and purples. This is going to be a fun card to give to someone.

Wishing you a great weekend!

Hints of Spring Vol 2. – Mixed Media Card Challenge

Hello there, time to bring you some additional inspiration to the March Mixed Media Card Challenge :)! This months theme is Spring and the optional element this time is a bird.

And here are some additional cards I created based on this months theme:

On the above card I´ve used some paper leftovers from the Teresa Collins “Save the Date” collection kit. In addition I´ve punched out some butterflies, again using a purple sprayed leftover paper piece. I then added some yarn in matching colours and outlined the butterflies with a white pen. A pearl in the middle is for additional interest and the little puffy sticker (by Evalicious) is my sentiment.

This is a very clean&simple card, but I like how it turned out and I again got some stash busted too :).

My next card is very different to what I usually make, but I took out some older (as in: I´ve had them for a looong time :)!!) Hero Arts stamps and stamped the brach, fussy cut it (yes I did – and it´s very thin!!), coloured the leaves with a green marker and glued it down on the dry embossed piece. The clouds pattern comes from a Stampin´ Up! dry embossing folder – I just love it! I´ve also inked the clouds with a blue Distress Ink afterwards to give the sky more interest. Next I took a leftover piece (when I make mixed media stuff, I always save the colorful, random leftover pieces for such purposes as these!) of watercolor paper, stamped the birdies on it various times to get different coloured wings and bodies and then did some paper piecing and glued everything on their places. The wood veneer heart is covered with glitter glue and inside I´ve applied some Glossy Accents and poured some micro beads into the empty space.

Quite a lot of work for such a simple looking card, come to think of it ;-). By the way, the sentiment says: You are staggering!

So this was my take – now it´s your turn! Excited to see what you will make out of this challenge! See you at MMCC,

You are loved

Hello there! Ready for some more Mixed Media Card Challenge inspiration for this month? The challenge is all about L-O-V-E this month and as an additional element you are asked to use BUTTONS (now, we all have those in our stash, don´t we?). Can´t wait to see what you create!!!

And here are two cards I created based on this months theme:

For the first card I just stamped a heart background stamp pattern with blue ink, then wiped some pink ink over it. Next I added some gold and black ink splodges, stamped a sentiment and added a blue feather. The feather has some glitter glue details on it. As additional decoration I added some rhinestone swirls. The sentiment in German says: You are loved.

On this card I used a piece of an old bookpage as background, added some blue spray ink with a paint brush onto the background, then punched some butterflies from white cardstock and stamped a hashtag word on each butterfly. After that I just glued everything down and added the rhinestones.

Now it´s your turn – there is still plenty of time to join in!!
See you at MMCC,
