Happy Birthday!

Hello everyone and happy Friday! Today I´m sharing another clean and simple card, but this time combined with products from Studio Tekturek and STAMPlorations.

For the background I again used the newer Studio Tekturek papers and for decor I added the new paper goods by STAMPlorations from their new paper goods line. And in between I´ve added some stamping with black stamp ink.

I also managed to sneak in a few older products *LOL*. See the tiny cloud sticker? It´s by Sassafrass and the button is from my never-ending-button-stash :).

I had fun creating this card. Wishing you a fabulous weekend!!!

January Stencil Challenge – STAMPlorations

Hello and happy 2021!!! I think the most of us are happy to see 2020 go, right? Let´s celebrate that with a brand new STAMPlorations January Stencil Challenge, shall we?

My card matches the mood – A celebration card for saying my goodbyes to 2020… ;-). Even our Christmas tree got the pandemic mood as it started dropping it´s needles on 24th already. Never have had that happen ever before! And our gingerbread house also fell apart on it´s own during the holidays. Never hat that happened ever before. 2020 has been a horrible year. I am glad it´s done now. Here´s to hoping that 2021 will be a better one!!! We are on lockdown (3rd one already) while I write this, so the start is not any different, but hopefully the vaccination will do the trick and we can retourn to a more normal life at some point.

For this card I used the new, modified „Rag Rug“ stencil. It´s slightly bigger than the original design, so it´s easier to cut. Therefore, if you purchased the previous one and were wondering, how come this looks so much bigger, that is the simple reason. Also, there will be only this version of the stencil available at the STAMPlorations store from now on.

I first inked the background yellow and then after placing the stencil on top, applied various distress ink tones thru the stencil onto the background to create the overall look. For decor I added some older stickers, a few sequins and for finishing touches, a stamped sentiment.

Now is your turn! Let´s make 2021 special and have fun with the stencil challenges at STAMPlorations. Remember to play by the rules (listed at the end of the challenge!) to be eligible for the prizes and have fun with this months challenge! Cannot wait to see what you make! Happy 2021!!!!

Happy Stenciling,

Party! card

Hello lovelies! I am still on my stash busting journey and I made this easy-to-do card with some older product from my stash. I combined two of my faves – Sassafras product and stenciling.

So here is a fun card for a birthday party and/or invitation. This one is really very simple to do. Just place a stencil onto the card base, add two tones of Distress Ink thru it and then decorate with stickers, buttons and sticker alphas! And you can even add some Nuvo Drops for additional fun, if you want. That´s it!

I have piles and piles of stickers I still want to use up – also pleeeenty of buttons in my stash. So it´s good to use one or two here and there! And that monster is perfect for a childrens party theme, right?

That´s it for today. Come back on Friday to see another card that I am sharing here.

See you,

Baby card – Tonic Studios

Hello and happy Friday!!! Like promised yesterday, I´m back with another baby card share today again. Here is what I did:

This card is a personalized one, because of it´s recipient. Also there was supposed to be a giraffe on the card and rather green tones than blue ones.

I´ve again used the Garden Gate Layering Die Set by Tonic Studios for die cutting the frame. Parts of it are made from patterned paper, one part is from white cardstock that I inked with green Distress Ink tone and an ink blending tool. The stamp image is from my older stash of stamps. I colored it with Stampin´ Up! markers. The alphas are also old and by Sassafras. And the various green papers are also from older stash of mine. The Nuvo Drops I´ve used, are the tone Bottle Green. I´ve rounded the edges with a corner chomper, by the way.

I really like how the card turned out. Hope the recipient is happy with it too!

See you soon again with another type of projects.

3rd Stencil Reveal

Hello everyone!!! Today I´m very excited to be sharing my 3rd stencil release with you guys!!! I´ve got 5 new stencils coming out and on the following video you can take a look at the newest designs…eeek! I´m very excited about this release!!!!

I hope you enjoy my new stencils and give them a try yourself!!! Here are some projects, created with the new stencil, for additional inspiration :).

This card and the one underneath were created with the Art Flowers stencil using tinted structure paste and Nuvo Embellishment mousse. The clear stickers I´ve used on these cards are also by STAMPlorations. I love using them on my cards!!!

This one is done using the Onion in Raws stencil with Nuvo Glitter Paste. Also again featuring some of the clear stickers from STAMPlorations….and some of my beloved Sassafass stickers I have been saving for a special occation.

On this card I used the Retro Hearts stencil with Distress Inks and some stickers from my older stash. The stamped sentiment is from the Party Time STAMPlorations clear stamp set.

This softer toned card is done with spray inks using the Tapestry stencil. I really like this pattern on the card background.

And these two are done with the Peacock Feathers stencil. On the upper one I´ve used Distress Inks, then Distress Paints on top and outlined all with a black pen. For the lower one I´ve used only Distress Inks in various colours and then added some stamping with the For the Birds STAMPlorations stamps. Could not resist to add some Nuvo Drops onto the cards also.

Here is another Retro Hearts stencil creation. I´ve first inked thru the stencil with Distress Inks, then applied some Nuvo Glitter Paste on top thru the stencil again. This adds nice texture to the card.

For this butterfly card I added Distress Inks in pink, yellow and orange thru the Tapestry stencil onto the background. Really, really like this color combination with the pattern.

I could not resist and created a card with Distress Inks using the same technique like on the above card, but this time with Art Flowers.

And also did the same with Onions in Raws stencil on the following card. I added Sassafass stickers to go with the background as I found them very suitable for the fun, colorful background. The stamp is by STAMPlorations too (see full material list at the end of this post).

For my last card I just basically wiped all ink from my ink blending tools into a piece of residue paper starting with the Tapestry stencil and the layering the Retro Hearts on top of the previous pattern and adding orange Distress Ink thru it onto the background.

So that´s it! That is my 3rd stencil release with STAMPlorations. I hope you like the video, the ideas, the cards and the new stencils. For more details on my new and older stencils, go to the STAMPlorations store HERE :).

Happy stenciling,
xxx, Sanna
