#tuac5minchallenge – Day 28

I am very late with Day 28 share for the Ugly Art Club´s 5 min challenge today. It was a lovely day and it had to be spent outside in the garden mostly, so I recorded the video very late.. But here is today´s take:

As a base I used an old postcard and applied Dina Wakley Gloss spray´s on top, then some Nuvo embellishment mousse thru a stencil and then just random bits from one of my junk bags.

Ok, way past bedtime for me. See you tomorrow :)!

#tuac5minchallenge – Day 24

Hello and happy Tuesday evening! A quick share for my Day 24 take on the Ugly Art Club 5 min challenge for day 24:

I really like these vintage ladies, so I did another one with one of them on it. Then some Dina Wakley Gloss Sprays, a dried out baby wipe strip, a sentiment from an old book and that´s about it.

That´s it from me for today. Hope your day was good! See you tomorrow!

#tuac5minhallenge – Day 20

Hello and happy Friday!!! This week was rough on me, so I´m very happy to have a few days off! Today´s piece for the Ugly Art Club 5 min challenge is a quick one. We did our grocery shopping and came home and it was REALLY chilly outside. Therefore, today piece is all about fall..

And here is the video. Nothing very spectacular, just fall colours for today. I didn´t have any energy for more :). But I showed up for the five minutes anyways!

Wishing you all a relaxing weekend with lots of creative time!!
See you tomorrow! xxx, 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!

Metallic toned die cut cards – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello everyone and happy Thursday!! Today I´m back at Elizabeth Craft Designs blog with another guest design team member post. This card idea started from idea to use white Soft Finish Cardstock in a different way. Also, due to the pandemic weddings had to be postponed by many people this summer and are now slowly taking place, the need for wedding cards moved to fall. Thus the love theme today.

For this card idea I´ve used only the same dies and yet they all look so different. It´s because I´ve treated them with a metallic media. My starting point by each of these cards was the same; white Soft Finish Cardstock!

All 3 cards still look so different due to the color choices. The dies are the same, only the colours vary. And the background paper I´ve used for matting everything.

I´ve again recorded a step-by-step video for you to watch – hope you like the idea!

Be sure to check out the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog for written steps and more photos of all cards.

I hope you could inspire you today to see the versatility of plain white cardstock. There are so many ways to give it a different look and it´s always a great starting point for many projects.

Also I would like to note that hoarding various media is not a good idea. This happened to me recently when I opened one of my Nuvo Embellishment Mousses. They had ALMOST completely dried up! I was able to save a few, but also had to toss quite a few. So, take my word for it: use the product you buy. Use it before it get´s old! So these cards were also an opportunity to use up some of those mousses. You might be seeing other metallized projects showing up here on my blog – I learned my lesson and am for sure going to use the product now and not be sorry later :).

I´ll be back next month with another Elizabeth Craft Designs guest member project. Hope to see you then!!

Happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna
