November Stencil Challenge – STAMPlorations

Hello and happy November!!! New month means a new Stencil Challenge and here is my take for the November Stencil Challenge reveal at STAMPlorations.

This card is made using a white card base on which I mounted a misted, stenciled old book paper. For misting I used various Dylusions sprays with one of my new stencil designs, called Abstract Prehistoric Life.

After mounting the dried book paper onto the card base, I just added very little decoration. The Panda bear figure and a hooray sticker from my older stash. I love the look, it´s like the panda bear is in the middle of colorful leaves.

Now is your turn to play with stencils and submit your projects here. Please don´t forget to follow the rules if you want to be in for the win ;-). All rules and even more inspiration can be found at the STAMPlorations blog. Also throughout the month of November, if you order at the STAMPlorations store for a total of USD 10,- (total after discounts and before shipping), you get to choose an in-stock item at the store with a value up to USD 7,- for free. How cool is that offer?

Also, like always, do take advantage of my discount code at the store:

That´s it for today. I hope you will take advantage of this fabulous offer and also join the November challenges! Cannot wait to see what you create for them :).

Happy crafting,

Supplies (I again tried to find you alternative suggestions to replace the older product):

„The New Normal“ – Studio Tekturek

Hello and happy Thursday! It´s again „Studio Tekturek-day“ on my blog today. Have you been following their social media sites recently? If not, there are great news – their STORE IS NOW ONLINE. So if you have been waiting to be able to shop some Studio Tekturek goodness, go to:!!

So if you, for example, like the Strawberry Shake collection that I´ve used on the above layout, you now can do so. Also, new customers get a discount of 15% for their first order!!! How cool is that!!?

The papers and stickers are all from the Strawberry Shake collection and I love the versatility of this collection so much. It´s so perfect for everyday scrapbooking! The other products I´ve used are either from my own (older) stash (Wycinanka chipboard and Technique Tuesday stamps) or from other manufacturers, like Bramblefox.

I´ve again recorded a start-to-finish video (partly spoken, partly fast-forward). I hope the video inspires you and gets you scrapping yourself!! I´ll be back with another scrapbook layout and video on the 29th of November. See you then again!

Wishing you a fabulous day and happy scrappy moments!

Birthday boy card – STAMPlorations

Hello lovelies! Happy Tuesday!! I am still enjoying creating with my new stencils so much. So I´ll just keep sharing cards done with them 🙂 – so hope bear with me on this :).

The zodiac set is one of my faves, because they can be used for that particular purpose, but also make great additions to mixed media projects and art journals.

I did a green background with Distress Inks first, then added water splatters and finished off with a black zodiac layer. The stamp sentiment is also by STAMPlorations and it´s one of my fave sets called „Party Time!“.

Even though it´s dull and grey outside, I still hope you have a nice day at your end!! Happy crafting,

Hello and happy Monday!! Today I´m just quickly stopping by to share a „stash busting“ card with you. This one is created using mainly old product from my stash.

I started with a spay inked layer of „Abstract April Showers“ stencil pattern on the background (using a Heidi Swapp spay ink – also from my older stash). Then I added a piece of misted book paper and a strip of Dina Wakley Washi Tape. This one is one of the new products used on this card. The flowers are stickers gifted to me by a friend (thanks, Lizzy) and the word stickers and chipboard are older stash.

I just layered everything on top of each other and that way the card came together. What are your plans for next week? Today was Austria´s indipendence day, so we had a day off. I needed that after hiking over 15km´s yesterday (well done me!). I hope to get some gardening done next week, let´s see how that goes. What are your plans for next week?

Wishing you a great week!

Hello and happy Saturday! I´m stopping by to share another card, created using one of my new stencils. This card is a combination of Dina Wakley sprays on the background and one of my stencils and Tim Holtz paper people.

I really like how this card looks like. I love the stencil pattern in combination with the sprays and the vintage people. I did a bunch of such backgrounds during lockdown in spring and now I´m slowly using them for various projects. For this card I also took such a background

I then added the stenciled pattern using brown Distress Oxide. For finishing touches I just added the vintage couple and the word together. Simple and easy, really, but I love the end result so much!

I wish you a lovely weekend! Fall is here and the numbers on the pandemic front are rising again, so therefore, I´m hoping you are all staying healthy and taking precautions.

Happy crafting,
