Gummiapan | Repeat Stamping Technique | Birthday Cards

When Swedish Gummiapan came out this year with tree big Danish text stamps I just had to get a couple of them. They totally speak to my CAS heart <3


The Danish text means Congrats, Congrats, Congrats on your birthday. 

I have also used a variaty of the inlaid diecutting technique for the flag. 


On my other card I have used one of my Ombré ink pads. It's been too long since I've last used it. It really did need a bit of crafty love. 


On this card I did use the Inlaid diecutting technique for the little flag. Thought it a bit fun to incorporate the Danish flag when the text was plain grey/black. 

I have also showcased these cards in an article in The Paper Crafting Magazine. You can read it HERE in Danish. 



Wishing you a (crafty) and happy day :)

Pia

Concord & 9th | Simon Says Stamp | Happy Birthday Card

Sometimes getting started takes longer than expected. It's been a while since I bought this Turnabout stampset from Concord & 9th. It took me ages to pull it out and give it a go. 

I should have done it soooo much earlier 'cause this stampset rocks!



This Dahlia Turnabout stamp is super easy to use, when making square cards. Me - I always make standard A6 cards therefore I needed to adapt my technique a bit. 

To start off I drew a cross with a light pencil line on my cardfront. The center of the cross right where I wanted the center of my Dahlia flower. 



The pencil lines are the guide to place the stamp correctly for each turn. On my stamp I have also drawn a cross. This is all explained when you buy the stampset. 

If I did not have my pencil cross as a guide, then by each turn I would end up stamping in different places on my cardfront. This all because I do not stamp on a square piece of cardstock. 



The colour combination for this card just shines happiness. Such a joyful mix of colours. The yellow really is allowed to pop and stand out between the other colours. 


A couple of tips when stamping with Turnabout stamps: 

# Always start with the lightest colour first. This to avoid too much colour transfer to the next colour. 

# It can be a great advantage to clean the stamp properly between each colour. For this can be used a scrubbing pad and stamp cleaner. 

This card I also showcased in The Paper Crafting Magazine. You can read the article (in Danish) HERE.


Have a splendid day :)
Pia

4 Months Till Christmas | Create A Smile | Hobbyboden

Oh boy, it's already the 24th again and there are now only 4 months till Christmas. Yikes, better get started on the production of Chrismas cards. 

As usual we are sharing some Christmas Card inspiration over at Operation Skriv Hjem (Danish Operation Write Home). 

This time I did nothing but heat embossing...


I have used 3 different stamps from 3 different brands to make this card. Love how there are endless possibilities of mixing stamps and brands in our hobby. 

I have used embossing powder from ZING this time. It's not the detailed powder so there is quite a bit of structure in the heat embossing.


Hope you are still enjoying the end of summer. Before we know it autumn might be upon us and the colours begin to change in nature. 

Hugs, 
Pia
