december2016challenge

This is my take for the reveal:

Sanna Lippert - gold and stars die cut die card

I´ve again used some Elizabeth Craft Designs products on this card, as well as some lovely Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist spray inks.

I first took a piece of white cardstock, die cut that in 1/3 and 2/3 sized pieces using the Holiday Garlands 2 die cut set. That way I had an upper piece, a middle garland part and a lower piece. Next I misted the upper part with purple, dark red, aubergine and black spray ink colors (all by Tattered Angels). After that I added white acrylic paint splatters onto that background. It now looks like the universe/space. I really like this look!!!

I then took the lower piece and attached Clear Double Sided Adhesive onto it and poured golden Silk Microfine Glitter onto that piece and polished that with my finger to make it all shiny and stick to the adhesive (here is a video how to do that). When the glitter piece was finished, all I had to do was to adhere all pieces onto their places with paper glue. Next I stamped a sentiment with black ink and inked the background with pink Distress Ink. I then fussy cut the stamped image along the edges. Finally I added some half pearls onto the garland for decoration.

This card I pretty clean and simple looking even though it takes quite a lot of media to make it :). I hope you will find this months challenge interesting and join in with us! Who does not love gold???!!! Hope to see you at MMCC this month, lovelies!!!

Happy crafting,
Sanna

I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist spray ink on the background. Then I outlined the cardstock piece with a black pen. Next I inked a VivaLas VegaStamps stamp with three different red tones & some orange, green and brown tones and stamped the multi-colored image onto a piece of white paper. I then fussy cut the images and adhered them onto the green background. After that I stamped an Ali Edwards stamp with black ink onto a piece of white cardstock, fussy cut along the edges and inked it with green Distress Ink. I really, really like the shiny green background color with the bold red fruit images on it.

Here is what I created for the reveal:

I used lots of Elizabeth Craft Designs dies for this card.

I first took a piece of white cardstock and cut it into a size of approximately 14×10 cm. Then I placed it into an embossing folder and ran it thru my die cutting machine. Next I applied some orange and lighter green Distress Ink tones onto the background. After that I took a piece of eco dyed fabric, adhered that onto the background and added a piece of twine around it. Then I die cutted some mushrooms (by Joset Designs) and inked them with Distress Ink. After adhering those on their places, I added a stamped sentiment (Stampin´ Up!) and inked and outlined the banner before adhering the sentiment onto the card. Finally I added some grey and black ink splatters and a puffy sticker.

This is my take on the Thanksgiving theme. I hope you find the time to join in with us this month!!! Hop over to the MMCC blog to see what everyone else created!!

Brayered, stenciled mixed media tags – STAMPlorations

http://www.papierstau.at

Hello everyone, I am up over at the STAMPlorations blog today with a set of mixed media tags. Every time I create a project, I keep a piece of heavyweight white paper next to me. This piece serves as a residue spray ink/paint/paste surface. I dab, wipe and press all the residue media onto this piece and put it aside, when it is totally covered. Then I take a second one and so on. This way I have a pile of half finished background papers in my stash that I then use for a starting point on future projects. This is how I started with this tag set too.

Here are the steps I did (please also see the video for further details):

1. Take a half finished misted heavyweight background paper piece and cut it into smaller pieces.
2. Take Distress Paints and different brayers and created random patterns onto the misted pieces.
3. Apply some Distress Paint onto the credit card and wipe the paint onto the background pieces. Dry with a heat gun.
4. Fussy cut the papers into tags.
5. Apply yellow, light pink and orange spray ink onto the tag backgrounds. Let dry.
6. Take various ARTplorations stencils and apply blue Distress Ink thru them onto the background.
7. Take a STAMPlorations stencil and stamp the images with black ink onto the tags.
8. Color some of the images with Posca paint pens.
9. Add further details for interest with yellow, black and white texture spray.
10. Apply Liquitex Ink! Iridescent Bronze ink onto the tags for more interest.
11. Add random doodling and writing onto the tags with a black and a white pen.
12. Outline with a black pen.
13. Add ribbon, old book paper pieces and flowers for additional detail and decoration.

Here is the video step-by-step:

This is what the finished tags look like:

I hope you enjoy this tag idea and get those stencils and stamps out and play alittle yourself!!! I really enjoy creating these colorful tags!

Laugh, smile, love – The MMCC June Reveal

Hello there! Time to share the Mixed Media Card Challenge Blog´s JUNE challenge with you :)!! This time you are asked to create your card around the following theme:

Here is my take:  Sanna LippertI used a patterned paper as a base. Then I cut a smaller sized white cardstock piece, inked it with orange, yellow and brown Distress Ink. Next I stamped a post stamp image, cut it in half and inked it with orange Distress Ink. This image would be my sun :).

After that I applied some golden texture paste (by Imagine Crafts) thru a The Crafter´s Workshop stencil onto the background to create sunrays/sun glow. Then I stamped some trees on white paper, fussy cut those and adhered them onto the scenery. The birds and the grass bushes alongside the trees are hand drawn. The sentiment on the bottom is stamped with black ink. Finally I attached the scenery with 3D foam pads onto the card to give it more dimension.

Sanna LippertSo now is your turn! I hope you join our fun, mixed media card challenge this month!!!

See you at MMCC,
