Fishing Shaker Card with DCWV

Hi everyone.

I'd like to share the birthday card for my father in law's 70th anniversary. He goes fishing to Norway every year, so I decided to take this theme for his card.
I used papers from the DCWV Out in the Wild Paper Stack and the Foiled Cardstock Stack.

The main image is a stamp from Designs by Ryn. I embossed it with WOW! Colourblend Misty Sky and colored it with watercolour pencils and Brushos. My tiny die cuts, that are my shaker glitter are cut with a die from Marianne Design.
I used a Sizzix alphabet die and Distress Glitter Forest Moss for my "70".

Mixed Media Tag with DecoArt

Hi my dear crafty friends.

Recently I was accepted to the DecoArt Blogger Outreach program. Today I'd like to share my first tag with. I enjoy making tags, to try out new techniques, products and ideas. I use them later as a card front, in my art journal or just for home decor.

I started with a layer of DecoArt media Modeling Paste and the Andy Skinner "Alphabet Spaghetti" stencil. After this was dry I added Fluid Acrylics Blue Green Light. I used stamps from Viva Las VegaStamps to add more interest on my background. Finally I added some colour splatters with Fluid Acrylics Carbon Black. I wiped the edges with a black oil pastel.

The sentiment are homemade stickers with my Silhouette Cameo.

Thanks for stopping by today.
xx Susanne.

Altered Playing Card

Good Morning!

A while ago my kids collected some playing cards from  the supermarket. We have lots of them twice, so I decided to make myself some oracle cards. Today I want to share one of them. My main image is the elephant from the Rubber Dance African Animals.

I used also stamps from Viva Las VegaStamps! for more texture on the background.

Have a nice and crafty weekend!
Thanks for stopping by.

Challenge Reminder for Rubber Dance

Hello Crafty Friends!

There are two weeks left to join our January Colour Challenge. We picked a winter theme this time and we do love its glorious colours!


I created a mixed media tag with a snowy theme. The background is created with Gelatos and molding paste. I used different background stamps for some more texture. My sentiment is a mix from the Winter Wonderland's "let it snow" and a free printable from MixedUpMag. The birdie is a die from Die-Namites. I covered it with red Stickles glitter.I used some corrugated cardboard from DCWV to create a fence for my bird.

Thanks for stopping by today,
xx Susanne.

Butterfly Tag Tutorial with STAMPlorations


Hi my dear mixed media friends.

 I'd like to share a butterfly tag today. I LOVE creating tags because they are so versatile to use later. I prefer using them in my planner, on gifts or in my art journal.

Here are the step by step instructions:

1. I create a background using VersaMark ink through the "Daisy Dance" stencil and adding PanPastels. The color pigments with stick to the ink and you'll end up will this lovely pattern.

2. To seal the PanPastels I use my gelli plate together with some Gel Medium. Add a thin layer of Gel to the Plate and press the tag down.

3. Add some patterned paper scraps with Gel Medium.

4. Stamp the butterfly from the "Blossom like a Butterfly" set with waterproof black ink.

5. Add some shading with a watercolor crayon. I love to use Neocolor II crayons.

6. I use the "Lattice Y" stencil to add some texture with modeling paste.

7. Add some yellow with Distress Ink "Mustard Seed". I press the ink pad onto my craft mat and use water plus a brush to add it to my tag.

8. I used some tissue paper and stamp the "Believe" with waterproof black ink.
I cut it out and add it with Gel Medium.

 9. I use the chocolate Gelato to add some more shading and WOW! Metallic Gold Powder on the edges.

10. Finally I adhere a butterfly (it's colored with Distress Inks) on top.

Thank you for stopping by today,
