Soar high

Hello and happy Sunday! Today I´m stopping by to share another Bloom Cutups ATC card, done with STAMPlorations new paper goods product. I´ve shared a card yesterday and this is another one done with the same paper goods product line.

There is a total of 14 new products in this product category at the STAMPLorations store and more will be added bit by bit. So stay tuned for more awesome paper goods in the future.

For this card I used the same products like on my previous cards from yesterday: Art Marks #3 stamp set, New Day clear stickers, Art Marks #1 border die and the Bloom Cutups ATC paper goods. This time I used a gelli printed DIY background as a base and added the stamping, the border die a well as the Bloom Cutup and the sentiment on top. So this card is again full-on mixed media crazy :). Just the way I like it!

Also do stop by the STAMPlorations blog for more inspiration project shares around the new peper goods collection as well as the store to getyourself some of your own :)!

Wishing you all a lovely day and happy crafting,

June Stencil Challenge Reminder – STAMPlorations

Hello and happy Tuesday! Have you played along with the STAMPlorations challenges yet? No? Well, there is still enough time to join in with us!! For some extra inspiration, there is again a bunch of lovely work up over at the STAMPlorations blog to get inspired by.

Here is what I created for the reveal:

For this card I created a gelli printed background image with Dina Wakley heavy body paints using my stencil (available at STAMPlorations) called Art Flowers.

After creating the background paper, I cut it into size and took the residue piece to stamp and fussy cut the flower petals out of leaves from the STAMPlorations „Bloom Doodles“ stamp set and added a clear sticker (also by STAMPlorations) to the card. Very simple and easy, but thru the background colours, the card is really cheerful and bold.

Now hop over to the STAMPlorations blog to see more inspiration and then join in with us on the stencil fun! Please do remember to check out the rules on the main post, so you are qualified for winning prizes.

I hope you get inspired by this card and play a little yourself!
Happy stenciling, Sanna

Today we celebrate… – card

Hello and happy Tuesday! Today I´m stopping by to share another mixed media style card with you. This one has lots of lovely Dina Wakley Gloss Sprays on the background. I just love the effects you can create with them!

Thanks to the bold background, there is not much more needed to decorate the card. I love the white space and the bold colours on the backgrond, so I kept the rest very simple. Just a fussy cut collage image from Dina with some Nuvo Embellishment Mousse stenciled thru my stencil design (at STAMPlorations) and a simple white banner with a stamped sentiment.

Inside the sentiment continues with „….You!“ ;-). I also managed to detash one small button again. I have so many of them that they will last me FOREVER! Plenty of lessons learned there to only buy what you can use! And also USE the product, don´t hoard it!

Wishing you a lovely start into a new week! How´s life at your end? Here it´s been crazy busy yet again. So many things happening all at once that I would just love to shout outloud „stop“ and make time to freeze for just a moment to be able to adjust to all that is going on.

Have a great, crafty day!

June Stencil Challenge – STAMPlorations

Hello everyone and happy June!!! It´s been raining and chilly almost throughout the month of May here, so I am truly hoping for a bit more sunshine and nicer weather for June *fingerscrossed*. But regardless of the weather, it´s again time to share the June STAMPlorations stencil challenge with you. Here is my take:

For the challenge reveal I created a stenciled and gelli plated card background which I then pimped up with Dina Wakley Gloss Spray misted stencil pattern on top.

So lot´s of colours and lots of layers. But still flat and easy to be put in an envelope and mailed.

This time of the year, when the garden starts to bloom, is my favorite time. So for June I deliberately chose these colours and flowers. There are also some rainbows hidden in the background to create texture.

I´ve totally neglected my gelli plate for a long time, so it was time to start using it again. I really do like the mixed media backgrounds you can create with a gelli plate. The make great card backgrounds too!

Now hop over to the STAMPlorations blog to see what the design team girls created for the reveal. And then, grab your stencils and play along with!! Just remember, that if you would like to be in for the prizes, you need to follow the rules :). They are really simple and always listed at the end of the challenge post at STAMPlorations blog.

Happy stenciling,

May Stencil Challenge – STAMPlorations

Hello everyone and welcome to the STAMPlorations May Stencil Challenge reveal. It´s again an new, fresh, month and that always means that new challenges go live on STAMPlorations! I hope I can inspire you to join in with us at the Stencil challenge this month with my happy card.

For the May challenge I played with my Gelli Arts gel plate and my stencils. I love doing these mixed media backgrounds using the stencils. It´s always so exciting to see what kind of results come of out gel printing play time. This is also a really fun way of playing with ones stencils, by the way :).

For this one I used the Peacock Feathers stencil from my stencil line at STAMPlorations in combination with a gelli plate and skin toned and orange toned acrylic paints. After creating the background I did a few smaller prints with a set of small square gel plates and Art Marks 3 stamp set by STAMPlorations. The then became the background for the stamped flower images. Which were stamped with the Bloom Doodles stamp set and black stamp ink.

After that I just fussy cut the images and created the flower cluster onto the card. For finishing touches I added a Clear Sticker (also by STAMPlorations) sentiment.

That´s it! Now is again your turn to get creative with stencils. Please remember to play by the rules!! They are always listed at the end of the challenge and are really simple to follow, so remember, if you want to be in for the prizes, play according to the rules :).
