Today art journal page

Hello and happy Sunday! Today I´m just stopping by to share a burlap art journal page with you. During the first lockdown last spring I regularly watched the Dina Wakley Facebook lives and enjoyed them very much. Back then I created a set of mixed media tags and one of them found a forever home in my art journal recently.

I used various Ranger products for this page. The tag is made with spray inks, bits and bobs from the Collage Collective book by Dina, some Tim Holtz stamps and Dina´s Scribbe Sticks. On the background I have added some white paint from Dina with some Nuvo Embellishment Mousse in blue and a Nuvo Glitter Paste. The hand written word is done by a good scrappy friend (thanks again, Lizzy) .

I haven´t been doing that many burlap pages and I am not that used to it, but adding a strong focal point like this „tag“ makes the page „pop“. And adding some bits and bobs of various media brings the page together. I really enjoy playing in this journal with various types of pages at the moment.

Wishing you all a lovely day!!!

Simple Christmas cards with patterned paper

Hello lovelies and happy Wednesday! Today I´m stopping by to share another quick set of Christmas cards. For these cards I again used some older produt from my stash and added Canvas Corp papers as well as some stenciling and stamping to them.

Basically I´ve just taken a leftover stenciled piece (left card) and added it on top of the patterned paper. Before adhering it on place, I bound a ribbon around the background paper. I have so many ribbons that I really need to find a place for them! Christmas cards always look great with small ribbon elements, so there.

For the second card I just fussy cut the Canvas Corp paper, added a ribbon around it for fun detail and adhered it onto the background paper with 3D foam pads. That way it has more dimension.

So very easy cards to do. The glitter piece is done using Nuvo Glitter Paste and a STAMPlorations stencil, but it´s a leftover from a previous card already, so I just used the piece up here. Then just added the stamped holiday sentiment – this time stamped with red. I usually mainly use black, but wanted to try another color here.

And that is my Christmas card share for today. I´m really happy to be using up older product on these cards. They also work very well with new product, too. And the stash busting can continue :).

Hope your week is getting along well!

Congrats – Tonic Studios

Hello there, everyone and happy Easter!! I recently received the Tonic Studios Craft Kit 07 and did a little play with the Shimmer Powder that was in the kit. I recorded a short video with some ideas, how this product can be used, so I am sharing it here with you today:

Also, after editing the video, I used some of the bits and pieces of paper I had created during testing the product, and created a set of cards. I really, really adore the green tones of this powder! And the best part, it comes with lots of shimmer too! If you haven´t tried the kits and the powders yet, you are missing out in my opinion :). Besides, this green toned powder works sooo well in combination with pink. It creates a perfect spring color tone combo:

I´ve also used some delicate butterflies on some of the cards – these are from the Tonic Craft Kit 06. I love how the stencil image turned out with the powder!

On this card I used the negative stencil image (from the video) and added some color to that piece using the pink Nuvo Glitter Marker from the Northern Lights Glitter Marker set. This also came with the Tonic Craft Kit 06, but is also available separately at the Tonic Studios store, if you are interested. I´ve added all the links to the used product at the end of this post, if you are interested on a particular product.

Here I used the powder with the stencil and embossing powder to create a fun resist background with it.

Finally, on my last card I used the light green background piece from the video and applied some Pink Opal Glimmer Paste thru the same stencil onto the surface for more interest and texture. There are also tiny dots here and there to decorate each card. I just cannot get enough of the Nuvo Drops  – <3 them!!!

Wishing you all a lovely Easter time with you loved ones!!!
Happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna
