Christmas cards 2022 – Set 3

Hello and happy Friday! Today´ s Christmas card set is a mix of products by Fancy Pants, Vicky Boutin and Canvas Corp Brands. It´ s a bit like “something old and something new”, except it´ s for Christmas.

For the first card I used a premade card base from Vicky Boutin´ s Warm Wishes collection and fussy cut the tag from the same collection papers. The puffy stars are by Fancy Pants (older collection) and the tiny “badge” with 24 on it, is by Canvas Corp Brands. For dimension I used 3D foam on the background.

For this card I used a cute picture I fussy cut from a present tag and reused here. The paper is again Vicky Boutin Warm Wishes collection, as is the Chipboard Sticker. The stamped sentiment is by Klartext.

For the last card I used Vicky Boutin Warm Wished paper as the cards background, then added a die cut frame with a Canvas Corp paper sentiment on top. The wreath is also by Canvas Corp Brands – fussy cut and adhered on place with 3D foam. I also added some shine with Stickles to the wreath.

And another few peeps covered with these Xmas cards again :). Thanks for stopping by and taking a look! Have a good day and take care,

Christmas cards 2022 – Set 1

Hello there! It is again that time of the year – time for Christmas card shares ;-). Here is the first set I did:

I went with very simple CAS style this time mainly, because I wanted to use up product from last years. The background paper is by Canvas Corp Brands and the tag I don´ t even remember where I got it from. But I like the combo of black and green with red together. The stamp is by Klartext and the dots are done with liquid pearls. The chipboard sticker is by Vicky Boutin.

Here the background paper is by Vicky Boutin and Canvas Corp Brands. The puffy star is by Fancy Pants. I really like the black for Christmas this year or some reason.

And lastly, this card is also done with Vicky Boutin papers and the journaling card was in my stash, but I really can´ t remember who it is by. The little decor on the left top corner is by Canvas Corp Brands and colored with Neocolor 2´ s.

My goal making these cards was clearly stash busting. But I also really enjoyed creating simple, flat Christmas cards that are easy to mail.

Hope you liked these ideas 🙂 – have you started on your card creating yet?

Daily Art Practice – May 28th

Hello and happy Sunday! Ready for another DAP-Journal share and this time again with a face?

I “hid” the Artistic Almanac piece by drawing a face on top of it and adding the hair around. The idea worked out really well. I´ ve again used Neocolor 2´ s and a Stabilo all black pen. For finishing touches I fussy cut a Klartext stamp sentiment, but used only parts of it. The used bits translate to: “nothing to do but further”.

I really enjoed drawing her and noticed how much I miss my 2021 100 days of faces challenge and drawing faces. That was so much fun! I am anyways contemplating where to take my craft from here, what to do with it and what I enjoy the most at the moment. Kind of being in crossroads here at the moment abit.

Have a great Sunday, everyone!

Daily Art Practice – May 24-25th

Hello and happy Thursday! Today I am again sharing two pages form my DAP-Journal:

This piece is as big as the almanac page (in fact it is the original almanac page) and I only added some stamping and a bit of ribbon to it. Why? Because my journal is getting VERY thick and I trying to fit as many days into it as possible. I probably will need to split it into at least 3 sections in the end, but hey, a girl can try, right?

This sentiment translates to: Hey fighting spirit, I am incredibly proud of you.

For May 25th I continued the faces outside the almanac page and boy did I enjoy drawing these wonky faces. I haven´ t been doing faces in a while. It´ s something I want to do more of again, so this was a good reminder. I used a black Posca pen for drawing and then added colour with Neocolor 2´ s. For the sentiment I again used a Klartext stamp that says: “you are wonderful”.

I hope these pages lifted your spirits!
Have a great day,
xxx, Sanna


Daily Art Practice – May 23rd

Hello and happy Wednesday! Here comes another page from my DAP-Journal:

For this page I used a piece of newspaper and bits from a art supply stores catalogue, then added some Neocolor in yellow and white gesso as well as Stabilo all black droplets here and there. On top of it all is a Klartext stamp again. This one translates to: “Patience? As if I had time for that!”

Ironically, the original page speaks of tranquil mind and my side is somewhat the opposite :).

See you tomorrow again,
