an easy easter box

Inlägget postat av on February 21, 2018 | | Inga kommentarer »

Hello everyone!

Easter will be here soon – so it’s time to think about how to use those cute easter stamps.

I have made a simple box – with the image as the main focus:

I’ve cut the box from blue cardstock and covered the top with light blue designer’s paper. I just love soft colors for Easter! Then I’ve put some lace across the box.

The die cut word means “easter greetings”. I’ve stacked 4 of them on top of each other for a 3D effect. And I also added a few die cut clouds that are partially put onto the image, partially onto the box.

This cute image is from the Easter Kit. I love this chubby chicken and the bunny with the long legs…

See you all again later for my second project!

Hugs, Kathrin

Another love card

Inlägget postat av on January 21, 2018 | | Inga kommentarer »

Hello everyone!

It’s Kathrin here again with another card. Valentine’s will be here before we know it – and I won’t post before it so I thought I’d make a love themed card to inspire you.

For the base I used a die cut heart with a lacey edge and put a one with straight edges cut from white cardstock on top of it. I used Distress Inks Weathered Wood to ink the white cardstock up a bit and then stamped the Letter Context stamp on the left half. I also added some ink spots using stamps from the Splats Kit. I wanted it to look like an old handwritten love letter.

The main element on my card is this saying from the German Lyrics stamp set. It is about how all flowers wither, naming a few of those flowers, all but the one named forget-me-not. I remember writing this lyric into those books you give your friends as a kid.

Again I have used a bit of Distress Ink and added a little die cut heart to the panel. It just being white looked way too plain to me.

Under the panel with the lyric I’ve put a die cut flourish and a frame with flourish edges. To make these pop a bit from the red heart in the background I’ve used white Gesso on the edges.

On the left side I’ve added a die cut birdhouse with a heart shaped opening – and yes, the heart next to the lyrics is the left over piece from that birdhouse – and tucked a butterfly underneath. There’s also some cheesecloth and lace. And of course I wanted to add a few flowers. I didn’t have tulip or carmation flowers  – two of the flowers named in the lyric – but at least I went with the roses and forget-me-nots.

Have a very happy day everyone!

Hugs, Kathrin

A love themed card

Inlägget postat av on January 21, 2018 | | Inga kommentarer »

Hello everyone!

This is Kathrin today and I want to share with you a love themed card that turned out completly different than I had planned. I wanted to make a clean and simple card but felt like there was missing something. So I added more and more stuff, still trying to stick to clean. I am still not 100 % happy with the outcome, but decided I have to stop or I would ruin it. So, here’s the card I am talking about:

I started with a white card base and put a layer of plain dark red cardstock on top of it. Across this I’ve put some wide lace before adding a layer of a light blue designer’s paper with a hearts print. On top of that I arranged all the stamps I wanted to use.

I started with the larger one of the Posters here and put the heart with the “ever and always” saying that was heat embossed with white powder onto red cardstock on top of it. The largest of the Glass Bottles was stamped with a light grey in and colored in with Copics. Then I used a small heart stamp to fill the bottle.

On top of all of that I used the 100 % love barcode stamp from the German Lyrics stamp set and cut it into a banner shape.

Behind all of this I’ve added some of the flowers from the Fantasy 2 stamp set. It was a bit fussy to hand cut them with their beautiful flourishes, but sometimes you have to do what needs to be done. In the end I also added some smaller lace and a doily.

Have a happy day!

Hugs, Kathrin

Sista inlägget för dagen har också med nyår att göra.

Mitt eget nyårslöfte till mig själv blev att läsa mer.

Då kan det behövas ett bokmärke. Det kan ju inte vara för tjocka grejer på det. Lite hemgjorda blommor,en die och fina stämplar sedan är man hemma. Har målat med torra akvarellpennor. Tycker det blir så fint på craftpapper.

Scrappa lugnt och mycket tills vi ses igen.
