Alt genug

Hello and happy Thursday! Today´ s share is a mixed media piece, created using various leftover pieces from my „junk bag“. I was thinking I could frame this piece and give it away as a present to someone :).

On the background I have a gelli printed tissue piece, then some stenciling with Nuvo Crackle Mousse thru a STAMPlorations stencil. After that I´ ve got some Distress Paint and some Nuvo Shimmer Powder added to the background. The circles are from a leftover Glossy Spray sprayed piece. I just fussy cut them and added some outlining with a Posca pen. For finishing touches I added a stamped sentiment (using Klartext stamps) and a vintage figure that I also fussy cut out of a poster.

Here you can see some of the shimmer powder on the left bottom corner, by the way. I will add this piece to my „ugly art“ mixed media piece collection. I really enjoy doing these artworks, because it allows me to just play and add stuff without giving it too much thought.

Wishing you a great Thursday evening – it´ s almost Friday, lovelies!

Fröhliche Weihnachten

Hello and happy Thursday! I am slowly starting to add cards to my Christmas card stack. It´s already September, so I better start make them. This one is done using the Klartext stamp set called „Mixed Media Weihnachten“.

I chose a blue patterned paper with stars as my background piece and added stamped and embossed white details to the background. The trees are embossed in 3 various pastel embossing powder tones onto a dark green patterned apper and then fussy cut. For finishing touches I added a heat embossed sentiment in white and silver puffy stars to the top.

I really like the contrast on this card. The blue background just makes so many colours „pop“! Have you started your Christmas card creating marathon yet?

Wishing you a FABULOUS end of the week!!

Hallo, wie gehts?

Hello and happy Sunday! Today´s share is a card I created using my newly bought Klartext stamps. I really, really like their stamps very much and might have bought myself a few, when they had their summer sale going on :).

For this card I actually used a Christmas stamp set called „Mixed Media Weihnachten“ in combination with „Scribble Kreise“ stamps and „Folg Deinem Herzen“ stamp set. I went crazy with embossing, inking and stamping in layers here.

I´ve got stamping in black and grey ink tones on the background, then a layer of Distress inks in two pink tones, then some white embossing powder images on top. And some two toned embossed vellum hearts with some Nuvo Drops and a crazy pink heat embossed sentiment on black background.

I love the brightness and cheerfullness on this card. It´ll make a great card for cheering someone up!

Wishing you a fabulous Sunday,

#tuac5minchallenge – Day 12

Hello and happy Thursday! Today it´s DAY 12 of The Ugly Art Club #tuac5minchallenge and here is my take:

And as usual, the video for you to watch:

Now as I am looking at this I suddenly notice that I´m kinda leaving the „ugly“ art. At least I don´t think flowers are ugly, so I might need to rethink what „junk“ pieces I pick as my starting point. This is all junk on this piece – leftover paper with leftover inks and stamped images on it, so therefore I chose it. But it kinda looks very cute… hmmmm… I´ll try and do better next time..

Have a great day!

Carpe Diem!

Hello lovelies and happy Monday! Today I´m stopping by to share another card done with some new paper goods from STAMPlorations and combined with Studio Tekturek papers. Oh, and I also managed to sneak in some old border stickers from my stash.

So this is another win-win card where I managed to combine very old with new and make it work. Also, these tiny tiles from STAMPlorations are perfect focal points to card projects. You get several different ones in a set and can just cut one out that fits your project on that particular moment.

I again used some of my old favorite techniques too: lots of white space, some droplets, some stamping and a cluster as a focal point. It´s sometimes so good to return to old fave ideas, isn´t it? Do you do this often? There used to be a time when not a single project left my table without droplets and now they keep re-appearing again. I think there is always a time for certain kind of projects. I´ve also noticed that in summer I use lighter or brighter & happier colours and depending on the season my color choices change quite a bit. So for me choosing colours probably has to do with my seasonal moods/feelings?

By the way, there is also now a papergoods subscription avaiable at STAMPlorations, so do check it out. Here you can find the link there. And if you want to go and shop, remember to use my discount code to get 20% off your order.

Happy crafting,
