Happy birthday – card

Hello everyone and happy Saturday! Today I´m sharing another clean and simple card, done using some Pinkfresh Studio/Altenew stamps with matching dies.

I haven´t given „proper“ coloring a try so far. I think it´s because I don´t have the patience. I bet if I put my mind to it, I could eventually do nice coloring, but it just hasn´t been my number one priority so far. Therefore I love layering stamps you can „color“ flowers and leaves with :). So easy and not much thinking necessary.

That is why I adore this stamp and die set. So, so cool to work with. I´ve done several colours so far and it has always been so much fun. This is my latest take – soft pastel colours in Kitsch Flamingo. The stencil on the background is from my stencil line at STAMPlorations and works really well with the flower. The sentiment is older Stampin´Up! collection and the drops are done with Nuvo Drops.

I have been thinking about signature style alot. I really don´t know if I have one. I love to use certain products and media, but that hardly counts as signature style. When you see my work, do you immediately recognize it is done by me? And what makes it stand out as my work? I´d love to hear your comments on that, so please drop me a line (if there are still any people reading this blog?!!)… Thank you!

Wishing you a lovely weekend! Lots of sunshine, creativity and summer joys! xxx, Sanna

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!!

Congratulations – card, vol. 2

Hello and happy Monday! Today I´m again stopping by to share another clean and simple card with you! One of my all time favorite colours is yellow. I´ve loved yellow since I was little. It is a colour that immediately lifts my mood!

For this card I used the STAMPlorations „Rag Rug“ stencil from my stencil line there with yellow Distress Ink. The stamp and die set is by Pinkfresh Studio/Altenew and I love using this kinds of stamps to „color“ flowers. This way I don´t have to worry about adding the shading to the right spots, because it´s always right.

For additional decor I added some Nuvo Drops in Emarald and a stamped sentiment (from my older Stampin´Up! stamp collection). That´s all there is to this card. I love the white space on it and the colours. Makes me happy! I hope this card lifts your spirits today too! Here´s to a great week!

Congratulations – card, vol. 1

Hello and happy Thursday! Today I´m back with another clean and simple card share using a Pinkfresh Studio / Altenew stamp and die set with my stencil design from STAMPlorations.

I´ve used the „build a flower“ stamp set and then die cut it with the matching die to create the flower. For the background I used Distress Ink in Speckled Egg tone with my RagRug stencil. The stamped sentiment is by Stampin´ Up! And the dots are done with Nuvo Vintage Drops. Very clean in style, but I just love the white space here!

Today would have been my dad´s 81st birthday. He has been gone for 29 years now. I´ve spent 24 of those years abroad. Today I´m again thinking about him on his birthday. Thus a birthday card share for today. I hope you have a good one, dad!

Happy crafting,

Thankful for you – card, vol. 4

Hello everyone and happy Saturday! Today I´m stopping by to share one more card from the series I did a while back. I really do like creating clean-and-simple cards from time to time!

For this card I used one of my stencils (available at STAMPlorations) and a stamp and die set by Pinkfresh Studio / Altenew.

I find this stamp and die set so practical. See, I am not much of a flower colorer (well, I haven´t really put so much effort into it so far, because it wasn´t my main interest until now :)..). So, this type of stamps are perfect for a girl like me. Pick a color in various shades and stamps. EASY!

Then die cut, add a background and a die cut sentiment and you are good to go. And I get many cards done in one sitting :).

Happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna
