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 :).

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

#the100dayproject – Days 56-60

Hello and happy Sunday! Today I´m shortly sharing the next faces of my personal #the100dayproject2021 challenge. Like mentioned before I´m drawing a face a day on a pre-prepared, die cut tag. If you want to follow me face drawing journey „live“, you should follow my Instagram account (here). And you can also watch the videos directly on my YouTube channel (here).

My take on face drawing is an artsy, abstract one. I am not trying to learn how to draw realistic faces, because at the moment a) it is not my interest and b) I don´t think I am very good at that type of drawings. But this type of mixed media face drawing just interests me very much and I also enjoy it a lot!

This was another fave set. I loved drawing the „sailor theme“ very much. They were lot´s of fun. The second tag was a bit tricky, becaues I had added texture paste (Nuvo Mousse) onto the tag for decor. Well, it is kinda hard drawing a face on those areas, thus I ended up making tiny faces here and there. A little different take than the other ones. But oh well, the goal was to do faces, so I still kept to my theme :).

So be sure to come back to take a look of the next 5 :). I wish you all a wonderful new week!!!

Happy drawing,

But this type of mixed media face drawing just interests me very much and I also enjoy it a lot!

This was a fun set to draw! I really felt so much more confident drawing these 5 faces and adding details, shadows and shading. I also noticed that I like to do shading in „strange“ colours. It doesn´t have to be realistic at all! And I really am addicted to drawing with Neocolor 2´s, too. Also, I hadn´t drawn any faces with glasses so far, so I really enjoyed adding them to a few here.

So be sure to come back to take a look of the next 5 :). I wish you all a wonderful new 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,
xxx, Sanna
