Christmas card set

Hello and happy Sunday! Today I´m again stopping by to share a set of Christmas cards, created using the gorgeous Sweetest Christmas collection papers by Mintay Papers. I love this collection! Here is what I made this time:

I did some fussy cutting for these cards too, by the way. And since the papers are so very sweet on their own, I didn´need to (and also didn´t want to) add much. Just some Nuvo Drops and stamped sentiments, that´s it!

I don´t know if you can see it, but there are some key lime clear drops here and there on the green parts to add dimension and texture. And on the white areas I´ve added some snow mimicing details with white glitter drops. Also some pink glitter drops were added very randomly for additional sparkle onto the poinsettia leaves.

I also added some brown Distress Ink around the edges of one card, it immediately gave the card a more vintagey look. Love that effect on this paper! And the cards still are very flat so sending them on their way will not be too expensive. Dimensional cards tend to be expensive when mailing them and also rather easy get damaged on the way. No such problems with these ones 🙂 !

Wishing you a great start into your week! We are still on lockdown here in Austria. How are you holding up at your end, lovelies? Some days I´m ok with everything and other days, well, let´s just say, are not that great. Hope everything is ok at your end, peeps!!!

Take care,

Celebrate card

Hello and happy Monday! I wanted to share a cheerful and happy colored card with you today just to bring your mind off the grey weather outside (and the pandemic situation). Here in Austria we have reached an alarming level and more restrictions are due from tomorrow on for three weeks. So to bring some happiness to this day, I wanted to share this particular card with you.

It´s created using one of my new stencil designs at STAMPlorations: Art Flowers 2. I added lots of various happy Distess Ink colours onto the background first and then did a dictionary stamp pattern thru the stencil onto the card. I love this look so, so much! The fabric and corrugated paper flowers are again from my older stash (stash busting with cards is a thing for me this year!!)

The stamped sentiment is by Elizabeth Craft Designs. And the card base is made of bright and happy green tone. Wishing you all a lovely day, even though the circumstances! Keep healthy, wear a mask, wash your hands and keep your distance.

Lots of hugs, Sanna

Christmas card set

Hello and happy Saturday!! Today I´m sharing a set of pink toned Christmas cards with you. I created these using the Mintay Papers Sweetest Christmas collection from last year.

When using such gorgeous papers, the cards really don´t need much additional decoration.

I decorated the cards with only a little bit of various Nuvo Drops tones and added STAMPlorations Clear Stickers as a sentiment to each card.

Other than that I added just a tad of ink onto one card, the others just have the Nuvo Glitter Drops and Clear Stickers as decor. So if you need easy to do cards, take a gorgeous patterned paper, just add some stamping or sentiment stickers and a little glitter and the cards are good to go! If you want a little more effects, fussy cut some pieces and add them with 3D foam to the card. That way you get more dimension.

Wishing you a lovely day! xxx, Sanna

Glückwunsch

Hello and happy Wednesday!!! Today I´m stopping by to share a pink & grey toned 40th birthday card. For this card I used mainly Tonic Studios product.

The pink and grey papers are from my own older stash. The embossing folder is by Tonic Studios. The pink paper is die cut using a Tonic Studios layering die. And the sentiment is cut from a mirror cardstock using a Tonic Studios German sentiment die.

The numbers are older Thickers as are the flowers. The half pearls are also form my older stash. The little glitter dots are Nuvo Drops. I am very pleased with the color combination. This was a preference the recipient wanted and I really like the soft grey together with the happy pink tone.

What is your favorite colour to use in cardmaking? or what color combination do you love the most? I really like to experiment with new combinations recently. I have so much patterned paper in my stash and they work great in cardmaking. So there will be different color variations coming up in the future :).

We´ve made it to the middle of the week already! Yay!!! Hope your week is getting along nicely and you are staying healthy!

xxx, Sanna
