Alles Gute!

Hello and happy Monday! Here is one more stash-busting-project based card. I hope you are not getting tired of these? I love making them and discovering, how quite old produkt works together with newer ones. And the funny thing is, they REALLY do! Even the colours match! How amazing is that!??

For this card I again used the Pink Paislee Truly Grateful tiny 2×2 inch paper pads to create the “quilt-style” background. The size is perfect for a card background!

And for decor I used really quite old embellishments (chipboard flowers etc.). These are mostly by Basic Grey (I think) and Cosmo Cricket and go quite a long time back in time. At least 10 years if not longer…

For additional decor I added hand drawn faux stitching and a stamped sentiment from my Stampin´Up! stamp collection. That´s the whole magic behind this card. And it´s still quite flat, so it should be not problem to mail it to someone.

I hope your week got a good start and you get to enjoy summer abit. I have a few things planned, crafty wise, but this time it´s more home improvement type of crafting. I am planning on painting a room and decorating it totally new. I might even add a few photos during the process to my blog, if you are interested. So let me know :).

Leben ist, was du daraus machst

Hello and Happy Thursday! I hope you haven´t already had enough of my stash-busting cards? This particular one I really, really like. I think it´s the colours maybe. I again used the Truly Grateful Pink Paislee 2×2 paper pads for the background and created this quilt type of pattern with them.

And it´s so funny how all these patterns work together so well. Maybe because the colours go well together.

This, too, was such an easy card to make. Just arranging and adhering the small papers onto the card base, then adding a really, really old Crate Paper Bike Chipboard piece as a focal point and a stamped sentiment on blue cardstock to go with it. The manufacturer of these stamps is Klartext. You can find them here.

Only one more day, lovelies, and it´s weekend again. Sending you lot´s of sunshine and wishing for a nice, relaxing weekend at your end!

C´mon get happy!

Hello and happy Friday! Today I´m again sharing another paper heavy card – yet another stash busting project addition. For this card I´ve again used many of my The Wild Hare Kits design team time paper residues.

I´ve used up some Pinkfresh Studio papers as well as some by Shimelle. the tiny bits are by Pink Paislee and American Crafts.

For this card I basically just fussy cut the sentiments from the 2×2 paper pads and arranged them on top of the layered patterned papers. Easy peasy!

I´m doing these really simple cards, because I want to reduce my stash, but also because just adding paper on top of each other in various ways also can result in nice cards. Crafting doesn´t always have to be super technique heavy! The main point is you having fun with your products and getting crafty, isn´t it?

Wishing you a lovely weekend!!

Happy day!

Hello and happy Tuesday! Today I´m again stopping by with another stash busting type of card. For this one I´ve used residue papers from my design team time at The Wild Hare Kits. I adore this Heidi Swapp camera paper so much!

Basically I´ve just added layers of paper and wripped one part of the camera paper to add texture.

And for finishing touches I´ve just added a few embellishment in a cluster into the middle of the card. Also if you look very closely, there are tiny droplets of Nuvo Drops in the centers of the flowers. Just a tinyl detail to add some glitter and interest to the otherwise very simple card.

I love how these papers work together so well and sometimes it´s just good to layer paper on top of each other and do no techniques, heavy layering or mixed media.

Wishing you all a lovely day!

Gratulation, Vol. 2

Hello and happy Friday! Today I´m sharing yet another stash busting card project share. For this one I´ve again used the Truly Grateful 2×2 paper squares to create the “quilt looking” background for my card.

They are the perfect size for cardmaking! And I love the various patterns and colours together. Even though it´s wild patterns, they still work so well together. And for additional decor I then don´t need much.

Just a fun cluster of die cut elements, ephemera, paper buttons, chipboard. Whatever there is in my stash that works with the colours. And then just some faux stitching to tie everything together and a stamped sentiment. And voilá! The card is done. And I´ve again used up quite a few products. Old with new – a happy mix – and I bet you cannot tell what is old and what is new?

If you would like to jump in on this stash busting experience with me, feel free to. Just add a link to your blog into the comments section (use the permalink of that particular post, so I can easily find it) of this post and I´ll be happy to come and see what you created!

Happy crafting,
