Merry Christmas | God Jul | Heat embossing on Kraft | Gittes Eget Design


This card is a Design Team challenge for Hobbyboden.dk about stretching you stamps. 
My take on this challenge was to create my own border by repeat stamping. By combining two text stamps I could create a Christmas CAS card. 

The sentiment is Danish and means Merry Christmas - From all of us to all of you.

I often find that heat embossing on Kraft cardstock can be a bit tricky. Reason is that the Kraft cardstock I use is rather thirsty. Therefore it soaks up the VersaMark ink rather quickly. But by using my MISTI stamping tool I can stamp twice with the ink and this works so much better. MISTI for the win!


To emphasize the border I have used a dotted line die from Paper Smooches. This has such a good effect on the card and really makes it look like a text border.

Have a wonderful crafty day, 
Pia


Ps, here is todays puppy pic of Nelly - in hubbys arms.

Honey Bee Hello Cuts | Altenew Dotted Scales | Scrapbook Adhesives 3L Black

Keeping it simple is my mantra and this card turned out just the way I wanted it. 
Clean and Simple with focus on the sentiment with a splash of yellow.

(Psst, I am also sharing a little puppy pic in the end).


The Dotted Scalles background die is stunning and makes the sentiment pop more. 

But the addition of the yellow drops and the yellow envelope gives that extra Umpf to the card. 


The gorgeous Hello sentiment die from Honey Bee Stamps comes with two shadow dies. I have made another card using the complete sentiment die including shadow dies and you can see it HERE


I love combining different brands when I make cards. What about you?

Hugs, 
Pia

Easy Simple Cards | VIDEO | Beautiful Flowers 2 | Simon Says Stamp


Do you know the feeling of falling behind all the time? This is what is happening for me at the moment. Back in February and March I had catched up on my blogging and it was going perfectly...untill begining of April. Then we got the news that there was a pup for us! And my blogging time went to almost zero. But I did manage to craft and make cards. Now the situation is a HUGE pile of card projects which needs to be shown on the blog. And our new pup - Nelly - we brought her home end of April. I'll share a pic of her at the end of this blogpost. Enjoy :)


These cards came to life as I wanted to use some old bits of coloured cardstock. And a simple and easy way is to cut lots of strips in different sizes. With these strips you can create your own card backgrounds - either horisontally or diagonally. 

This absolutely gorgeous floral stampset is from Simon Says Stamp and it comes to life eventhough it is kept entirely in black. 


To stamp these cards I used my MISTI stamping tool. I placed the stamp in the middle of the MISTI and by positioning my cardbase in either top or below corner I could get these different placements. 

And I even filmed making these cards. Just haven't had time to edit the video - sorry. But I will see if I can get it done and share it later in another blogpost. 

ETA: Gosh, I actually made a time lapse video, but had totally forgotten about it. So here it is........

I am a greatly fond of the Clean & Simple style, why I have choosen only to add Black Nuvo Drops as embellishment. 

Below are the four different cards which I have created by positioning my cardbase differently in the MISTI. Super easy and quick stamping. 


As promised here is a pic of our new adorable labrador pup Nelly. Here she is about 9 weeks old. She is full of life and certainly very cheeky when she is awake. 


Enjoy your day, 
Pia
