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

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,

Today we celebrate… – card

Hello and happy Tuesday! Today I´m stopping by to share another mixed media style card with you. This one has lots of lovely Dina Wakley Gloss Sprays on the background. I just love the effects you can create with them!

Thanks to the bold background, there is not much more needed to decorate the card. I love the white space and the bold colours on the backgrond, so I kept the rest very simple. Just a fussy cut collage image from Dina with some Nuvo Embellishment Mousse stenciled thru my stencil design (at STAMPlorations) and a simple white banner with a stamped sentiment.

Inside the sentiment continues with „….You!“ ;-). I also managed to detash one small button again. I have so many of them that they will last me FOREVER! Plenty of lessons learned there to only buy what you can use! And also USE the product, don´t hoard it!

Wishing you a lovely start into a new week! How´s life at your end? Here it´s been crazy busy yet again. So many things happening all at once that I would just love to shout outloud „stop“ and make time to freeze for just a moment to be able to adjust to all that is going on.

Have a great, crafty day!
