Christmas cards in pastel tones

Hello and happy Friday lovelies!!! Today´s post is again about Christmas cards. No surprise there, right? Well, I make plenty every year, so I will share those mostly during December every year, so hope you can still handle a few more Christmas card related posts. Not long now anyways, as Christmas is soon here.

These cards are again done using the absolutely adorable Christmas paper collection by Mintay Papers. It´s a collection from last year, but I have still papers left, so I´m using them all up. And I love how they look! So, so, so pretty!!

I´ve added some brown Distress Ink around the edges to the card on the left. It creates such a nice vintage look to the papers! on the right card, there is some Nuvo Key Lime clear drops on the lights. It adds a nice dimension. Other than that, the sentiment is stamped with Elizabeth Craft Designs Winter Sentiments. Some Nuvo glitter drops here and there and that is basically it.

I hope you like today´s card share and I hope to have inspired you today. Happy crafting,

Stenciled easy to do Xmas cards

Hello and happy Thursday! Today I´m sharing a set of easy to do Christmas cards you just need a few minutes for.

Just grab a piece of leftover paper, some Nuvo Embellishment Mousse a stencil and a blending brush of some kind. Then apply the mousse with the brush thru the stencil onto the leftover piece of paper. Let dry.

Now outline the pattern with a white gel pen for a fun detail and the adhere the paper onto a card base. Add either a stamped sentiment, some embellishments like the Rudolf on my card, some ribbon and/or fussy cut Christmas themed decor. That´s it! Really fast and easy. And the mousse also adds a really nice shine to the card, when it´s tilted (see above photo).

And these too are not too thick to be put into an envelope and mailed to a loved one.

Wishing you a great Thursday!!! xxx, Sanna

Birthday cards

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I´m sharing a set of birthday cards with you. There are again done using very old Basic Grey papers. I´m still stash busting, as you can see.

I´ve just pretty much layered the papers and the chipboards on top of each other and added a stamped sentiment. Stamp is by Elizabeth Craft Designs, by the way.

I still have a few pieces of this paper left, but I´ve basically busted one block of 12×12 paper so far from this collection, so I´m very proud of myself. So today, it´s basically „wordless Wednesday“ as there is not much I can say to these cards :). Hope you like them, tho :).

Happy crafting,

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!

Birthday cards

Hello and happy Monday! Stash busting journey continues and today I´m sharing yet another set of birthday cards, created with older product. These happen to be older Basic Grey papers, rub-ons and chipboard elements on these cards. I really like to patterns and colours and combined with some Elizabeth Craft Designs stamps and Nuvo Drops they really look great, if I say so myself.

Above is set one. As you can see from the background, there are still a few papers to be used, but I´m almost there :). It´s was a full pack of papers, when I started and look where I am already :).

And set two. These are more clean and simple in style. And even the rub-ons still work well, even though they must be almost 10 years old by now. Awesome quality!

For decor I´ve again added some Nuvo Drops and stamps by Elizabeth Craft Desings. Easy peasy and very effective.

I especially like the one with the stamped flowers on it. I don´t know why, really. Maybe, because the background is solely yellow. One of my fave colours!!! And the stamped flowers just work so well with the paper I think.

That´s all from me today! I should get ready to mail some Xmas cards and think about presents, but for some reason, with the lockdown and all, I just cannot move myself towards such things yet. Have you done all preparations yet? I think I find it hard this year, because there will be no normal Christmas and it just does not feel the same…

Have a great day and take care!
