Clean and simple Christmas cards

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I´m up with another set of Christmas cards, this time in clean and simple style. I´ve used some of the gorgeous STAMPlorations stencils on these to create the patterns.

See? Very simple and easy card ideas! I took a piece of red patterned paper (leftover piece that was on my table ;-)..) and placed the stencils on top. Then I took a blender brush and applied the golden Nuvo Mousse thru the stencil on top. After the mousse was dry, I outlined the patterns with white to make them better stand out from the background.

For the third card I used Ivory Coast Nuvo Crackle Mousse thru a STAMPlorations stencil. As a base I used a dark red cardstock piece. For decor I added some felt and wooden stars and into the middle I added a stamped sentiment. Easy peasy!

On the other cards I just added little details, like a STAMPlorations clear sticker and a wooden reindeer piece (who has a Nuvo Vintage Drop red nose, by the way ;-)..). For the other cards I just added a in brown stamped Christmas sentiment on a piece of white cardstock and inked the edges a little to give it a vintage look. The star is wood veneer combined with a star sticker. So only very little details, lots of red and a little gold with white. Very christmassy in my opinion!

Joy card

Hello and happy Thursday!!! Today I´m on the mood for sharing a Christmas card with you again. This time with plenty of sparkle :). I used a STAMPlorations slimline stencil with Tonic Studios Nuvo Glitter Paste to create the background.

As a base for that I used a piece of red cardstock which creates a really nice contrast to the background with the glitter. On the sides I have sand toned velvet ribbon from my older product stash. Still going strong with stash busting here :).

To finish the card off I added some fussy cut pieces from Canvas Corp. papers I had left over from my design team gig from a few years back. The papers themselves are very modern, but still work really well with the velvet and the glitter and together, funny enough, create a really cool vintage looking card.

I´ll leave you with this card today, but be sure to come and visit my blog tomorrow, because I am part of the 6th annual STAMPlorations Giving Thanks blog hop that goes live tomorrow!! So don´t miss that one!! See you tomorrow!! Also, a friendly reminder on the ongoing Christmas special sale at STAMPlorations:

See you tomorrow! Have a great day!

Belated STAMPlorations 7th Birthday party – day 5

Hello and happy Friday and welcome to the 5th day of STAMPlorations belated Birthday Celebration. Today we again have a ton of inspiration prepared for you showcasing the fabulous product STAMPlorations has to offer. Also, if you stop by the DT girls blogs and leave comments, create a project and link up our STAMP stash photo, you can win some awesome prizes!

For this card I chose a colour I don´t use that often: purple. I wanted to use this particular color for this type of theme, because I think it works well. The idea of this card is pretty similar to the one shared yesterday, but it still looks very different because of the color choices.

I used purple and light pink Distress Ink tones and matted the stenciled white cardstock piece on dark purple cardstock. I really, really adore this Flair stencil and the stamp used here is again a new one from the Bloomfully 4×4 stamp series at STAMPlorations.

Now hop over to the Day 5 post at STAMPlorations blog. There are plenty of prizes for grabs and a linky party going on. Also be sure to create a celebrations themed project and link it up! Lovelies, come and comment and link and play along!!! It´s a party week at STAMPlorations!!

Belated STAMPlorations 7th Birthday party – day 4

Hello and happy Thursday and welcome to day 4 of STAMPlorations belated Birthday Celebration! Today we have again plenty of inspiration prepared for you, so I hope you visit the blogs, leave comments and join in on the fun! Remember, there are plenty of possibilities to win some awesome prizes too!

For today´s post I´ve prepared not one, but two inpirational projects. One is an art journal page and the other is a slimline card.

https://stamplorations.blogspot.com/2020/10/belated-birthday-4.html

My first project is this colorful rainbow toned slimline card featuring the new Fanned Slimline Stencil. I love this one so much! What I did for this card is a used a yellow cardstock as my card base and mounted the white cardstock piece (which I had inked with Distress Inks thru the Fanned stencil first) on top. For a focal point I chose to ink a piece of white cardstock in orange tones and add faux stitching around the edges and a stamped sentiment from the new Bloomfully Series clear stamp.

For my second project I did an art journal page onto a piece of canvas in my black Ranger art journal. I used plenty of my new stencils here: on the background as a negative image and on the circles I used the „positive“ image.

I love the crazy look of this page! Works really well together with the accompanying right page too. This you will probably recognize from the Stencil Challenge Reveal post ;-).

Now hop over to the Day 4 post at STAMPlorations blog. There are plenty of prizes for grabs and a linky party going on. Also be sure to create a celebrations themed project and link it up! Lovelies, come and comment and link and play along!!! It´s a party week at STAMPlorations!!

Belated STAMPlorations 7th Birthday Party – day 3

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today we continue the STAMPlorations belated 7th Birthday Party with day 3 full of inspiration and possibilities to play along and win some prizes!

For the 3rd day project I created another slimline card with the new Slimline stencils at the STAMPlorations store. I also used the Bloomfully Sparkle stamp (also a new stamp in the line) set on this card.

I used the Mosaic in Squares stencil to create the background for the card. For coloring I used red, pink, orange and yellow Distress Inks to gradually change the color on the background. Then I added a velvet ribbon, a piece of chipboard and the rose image stamped with the Bloomfully Sparkle Stamp. I colored the stamped image with Distress Inks also. Adn for finishing touches I added a sentiment from the same stamp set and some green sequins. Everything got mounted on a dark pink cardstock in the end.

I am so much enjoying these slimline stencils and creating with them and Distress Inks at the moment. This is something I love going back to from time to time. Simple techniques, yet you can do so much.

Now hop over to the Day 3 post at STAMPlorations blog. There are plenty of prizes for grabs and a linky party going on. Also be sure to create a celebrations themed project and link it up! Lovelies, come and comment and link and play along!!! It´s a party week at STAMPlorations!!
