Hi there everyone! As I am still waiting for my February kit, I am spending my time going thru the January projects, created with the January The Wild Hare Kits Deluxe Kit. Which actually was a surprisekit – and I LOVED IT!
I created a total of 4 layouts and one card. I was planning on making even more, but then I had an accident (wripped my cruciate on my right knee *ouch*) and was busy going to doctors and getting ready for the surgery. I am still waiting for that one though…
So I have a very cool rail mounted on my leg every single day and I am slowly, but surely getting fed up carrying it around with me, but it has to be there to avoid any further injury on my knee.
But enough of that, here is what you have been waiting for, a short video wrap-up of all projects I created with this months kit:
Hope you like the video and if I inspired you to get a better look on The Wild Hare Kits and what they have to offer, then just hop over HERE to learn more.
Wishing you a great weekend and hope you stay injury-free ;-)… xxx, Sanna
Hello everyone and happy Wednesday! Today I´m stopping by to share my last August Deluxe Kit project with you. This one is a set of clean and simple cards.
For these cards I used white card bases as my starting point and then added either stenciling, ephemera or fussy cut paper as a focal point.
For the first card I added some Epic Triangles stenciling onto the background using Distress Ink, then layered a few Flower Market ephemera pieces on top and added tiny stamped images next to them. For finishing touches I used a Bramble Fox star and a puffy sticker from my own stash.
For the second card I matted the card base with a Pink Fresh Studio Everyday Musings paper then added a Flower Market ephemera as a focal point and stamped a sentiment with the stamp set from the same collection. For details I added some black acrylic paint splatters.
For my last card I fussy cut the Embroidery Hoops paper from Flower Market collection and added the hoops in a cluster onto the card. Underneath there is again some Epic Triangles stenciling with yellow Distress Ink and a few pink spray ink splatters. For finishing touches I added a faux stitching around the edges and stamped a few thank you-sentiments with the Flower Market stamp and black stamp ink.
This was a fun set to create. It´s not my usual card creating style, because the cards have hardly any media layers on them. But I loved using patterned paper for card creating for a chance and creating very puristic cards.
I hope you get inspired by this card set and create a few cards yourself. For more details on the Wild Hare Kits, see their website here. Wishing you all a lovely day and
happy crafting, xxx, Sanna
ps. This resulted from my August Deluxe Kit – all projects (and leftover bits) shared on this video. Hope you enjoy it!!
Hello everyone, I am sharing yet another The Wild Hare Kits August Deluxe Kit project today, even though it´s already September. I had been creating several layouts last weekend, while waiting for my September kit to arrive :-D.
Here is my absolute favourite with this kit – it´s because I LOVE this paper!!!
I could create several layouts using this paper, I adore it that much :)!! Here is what I did:
I first arranged the paper onto the page very loosely to get an idea on the placement, then I took the Echo Park Paper Epic Triangles stencil and applied some green Distress Ink onto the Color Fresh „Paint The Town“ paper thru the stencil.
Next I added some stamping onto the papers I had chosen using black stamp ink.
After that I crew a circle with a pencil onto the paper and started stamping leaves (using the Flower Market clear stamp set) around the drawn circle.
After that I added pink stamped hearts to the circle using the same stamp set.
Then I colored the leaves and the hearts using a water tank brush and Distress Inks and added some spray ink splatters in green and pink tones.
Next I arranged and adhered all the papers on place. I used the Pink Fresh Everyday Musings papers on the background and added a few details with the Flower Market Squares paper and Ephemera. There is also a bunch of Bramble Fox hearts on the layout.
The puffy stickers I used were not in my kit, but are from my older stash and by Amy Tangerine. They go really well with the August kit, so I added a few of them.
I also stamped the date with a regular office supply date stamp. I have noticed that if I don´t add the journaling and especially the date right away, I will not add it at all, and a few years later I don´t have a clue what year the photo was taken. So better to do it right away.
See the tag behind the photo? I´ve added the journaling there. It´s a fun way to add lots of text to a page, without it all showing at first sight.
So this is my last official August Wild Hare Kits layout. I still have a few papers left, mainly smaller pieces, but I´m saving them for later and might add bits of them to layouts I create with the September kit, we´ll see.
Hope you get inspired to scrap a little yourself and do take a look at the Wild Hare Kits website and order yourself a fun hand-curated kit! They are really worth the money as you get a customized kit, perfect for your current scrapping needs!
Hello and happy Monday! Today I´d like to share a 50th birthday card with you. I´ve used plenty of my older paper stash papers to create this card in orange and red tones. This is not a combination I do often, as orange does not happen to be one of my favorite colours, but in this case, the card had to have these colours.
I started by adhering the polka dot paper onto a white card base (size A5). Then I die cut the 5 and the 0 from various patterned papers using Tonic Studios die cut dies. I adhered the numbers in place with liquid adhesive (also by Tonic).
Next I added plenty of bits and bobs like enamel circles, Nuvo Pearls, puff stickers and a die cut speech bubble piece. The sentiment is done using Thickers alphas. For finishing touches I also outlined the numbers with a black pen.
Since my card was bigger than a regular card size, I had to make a matching envelope for it. I used a 12×12 patterned paper from my older paper stash for that and folded it into an envelope. For decoration I added some Basic Grey stickers onto the envelope. Now these go back quite a few years, but they really work well with all the papers and patterns here.
That´s it for today, be sure to stop by on Thursday when I will be sharing another The Wild Hare Kits August kit project here on my blog :).
Hello there everyone and happy Saturday! Today I´d like to share a simple and easy to do card with you. I love stencils, as you might have noticed by now 🙂 – and the background of this card is done using a stencil. It´s a very simple and easy to do technique, you just mix embossing paste/transparent texture paste with paint and apply it onto a piece of paper thru the stencil.
Let dry, cut into right size, adhere on card base and decorate. That´s all there is to this card. I´m trying to reduce my older stash abit, so I creating cards, tags and ATC´s and adding plenty of product from my stash onto them.
It´s really important to actually use the product we have, as they too have a best before date on them. So make sure you use your pastes, inks, paints and other products! Don´t let them get out of style/dry out – have fun using them!!! Wishing you a creative day &
