Birthday card

Hello everyone and happy Saturday!! I´m just quickly stopping by to share a fun card with you today. A friend asked me to create a unique card for someone´s 30th birthday and here is what I came up with.

The person receiving this card happens to be a Minions fan, thus the Minion image in the middle. Then I added die cut foam for the numbers and sentiment plus stamped fun phrases onto the card and envelope. By the way, the stamp I´ve used on this card, is not available anymore, but I found one by Hero Arts that comes pretty close 🙂 – see product links at the end.

I really, really like how this card turned out and I truly hope the recipient will also like it.

Wishing you a fabulous weekend and happy crafty times!!!

Christmas card

Hello everyone and happy Friday! Today I´m stopping by to share a few Christmas cards with you. Here is one of them:

This is a card created using the Village Edge die cut die by Elizabeth Craft Designs, combined with the Fitted Rounded Rectangle die cut die. I wanted to try a shaker card of this type, creating a big shaker „window“ and then adding a village scenery on top. This was a fun thing to do, but for my next card I´ll create a little bigger outline for easier arrangement.

My second card is also created using the Elizabeth Craft Designs Owl die cut die as well as the Fitted Rounded Rectangle dies. The dotted paper on the background is also from the same company as is the sentiment die cut die. For coloring the owl, I used Distress Oxides. The sentiment is die cut from a silver mirror cardstock.

And for my last set of Christmas cards I´ve used premade dry embossed papers which I have inked with Distress Inks and for the sentiment I´ve used a die cut die by Elizabeth Craft Designs and the tree die cut die is by STAMPlorations. The glitter paper and the embellishments are by Tonic Studios – their glitter cardstock and Nuvo Drops as well as Confetti.

This year I am hopefully going to make my Xmas card deadline and get them also mailed in time :). Looking good so far!

Be sure to check back to my blog on Sunday, when I will be sharing a few more Christmas card projects with you! See you then!

Happy crafting,

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.

Sweet Baby – Tonic Studios

Hello everyone and happy Thursday! Today I´m stopping by to share a baby card in green tones.

For this card I used the Tonic Studios Garden Gate Layering Die Set with some papers from my older stash. I chose a selection of different green tones, an organza ribbon and some Stampin´ Up! stamps as well as chipboard baby shoes by Wycinanka. For decoration I added some Nuvo Crystal Glaze with Nuvo Crystal Could Circles Pure Sheen Confetti and Bottle Green Nuvo Crystal Drops.

For die cutting I used the Garden Gate die cut dies and cut them both from green and white paper and layered them on top of each other.

It was fun to create a monochromatic card for a change and this was just warming up – be sure to come back tomorrow for another fun „welcome baby“-themed card! See you then!

Birthday card

Hello and happy Monday! Today I´d like to share a 50th birthday card with you. I´ve used plenty of my older paper stash papers to create this card in orange and red tones. This is not a combination I do often, as orange does not happen to be one of my favorite colours, but in this case, the card had to have these colours.

I started by adhering the polka dot paper onto a white card base (size A5). Then I die cut the 5 and the 0 from various patterned papers using Tonic Studios die cut dies. I adhered the numbers in place with liquid adhesive (also by Tonic).

Next I added plenty of bits and bobs like enamel circles, Nuvo Pearls, puff stickers and a die cut speech bubble piece. The sentiment is done using Thickers alphas. For finishing touches I also outlined the numbers with a black pen.

Since my card was bigger than a regular card size, I had to make a matching envelope for it. I used a 12×12 patterned paper from my older paper stash for that and folded it into an envelope. For decoration I added some Basic Grey stickers onto the envelope. Now these go back quite a few years, but they really work well with all the papers and patterns here.

That´s it for today, be sure to stop by on Thursday when I will be sharing another The Wild Hare Kits August kit project here on my blog :).

Happy crafting,
