Zur Taufe

Hello and happy Friday! Today I am sharing a card I made for a baby boy´ s Christening:

This one is in slimline format and has papers from a Moda Scrap paper collection I got from Elizabeth Craft Designs a few years back. I just love those cut little giraffes and could not resist using them. The centerpiece is done with a Stampin´ Up stamp and Distress Oxide inks and is layered on top of a Elizabeth Craft Designs scalloped circle die cut piece. The sentiment is die cut with a Tonic Studios German die cut die and on the bottom I have used a few Nuvo Drops.

The ribbon is from my older stash, but worked out perfectly with the colours of the papers. I chose a very clean and simple design, because I wanted to showcase the gorgeous papers.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great weekend!

50th birthday card

Hello and happy Thursday! Today I am sharing the second 50th birthday card with you.

I saw a beautiful card on Pinterest, done with folded hearts (I think). It was a bit different in style, but the idea of folding the hearts into flower petals was really inspiring. So I took the basic idea and created my own flower pattern onto a black card base (black for contrast).

The papers I used were one-sided, therefore parts of the “petals” are white. I also used various older papers from my stash and heart punches in different sizes to punch a pile of hearts from green, pink, red and yellow papers.

After punching the papers, I folded every heart into a half and arranged them onto the base and adhered everything on place. For decor I added some Nuvo Drops in between and then stamped and fussy cut a Klartext sentiment on white carstock. The number 50 is done with pink Thickers.

Now just hoping the recipient will like her card!
Take care,

Happy birthday card

Hello there! Here is another OPR-project (old product rediscovered) I recently did. A card from really old bits and bobs from my stash:

I find this cute butterfly paper so lovely that I have been hoarding it, instead of using it. A shame, I know. Also the shaker embellishments on the card go back a very long time. I find them really cute and finally put them into good use.

Hopefully the recipient of this card with like a little shaker element on their birthday card. The green drops are made with Nuvo Drops and the stamped sentiment is from a set by Tim Holtz.

You know what is the most fun in this type of project? Discovering the treasures one has and falling in love with them all over again :). But this time, being able to cut the papers and make something out of them ;-).

Have a great day!

Happy birthday – card

Hello and happy Tuesday! Today I am sharing another “old product rediscovered” (OPR) project. Everything on this card is old :).

There are very old brads, old Prima flowers, old ribbon from my own stash and very old paper. The only newer thing is the Nuvo Drops I used and the Tim Holtz stamp is also still available.

I really liked those fabric covered brads back in the day and hoarded them instead of using them. So now, finally, I have decided to let go of them and use them. This card is a perfect start for that :). And this card has a crazy color combination and a bit of everything on everything feel to it :). But that is okay too.

Hope your week started in a good way!
Take care,

Christmas card set

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I am again quickly stopping by to share another set of Christmas cards with you.

For these cards I have used the die cut trees left over from my previous cards and simply picked up a very bold colored background to go with a white tree and sentiment.

For the baubles I´ ve used liquid pearls and Nuvo Drops in somewhat matching colours.

And for outlining I used the Signo uni-ball white pen on every card.

Simple and easy cards and flat – so also easier to mail.

The stamped sentiments are done with Klartext stamps again.

I think I need some more Christmas sentiment stamps in German and maybe a few ones in Finnish too, I already have plenty in English in my stash.

I am still thinking of creating a few “not so simple” cards for this season too. Let´ s see what I can come up with. Until then, take care!
