Creativa 2017

Hallo Ihr Lieben,

falls Ihr vom 15.-19. März 2017 zur Creativa-Messe nach Dortmund kommt, plant einen Stopp am Stand 6.C10 ein und sagt "Hallo".

Wir freuen uns auf euch!


Hiya everyone,

today I am showing you a simple card which I've created last night. It's made out of kraftpaper and topped with several design papers by Reprint. The image can be found on one of the A4 papers and it's just perfect as a card topper. Make sure to check out the A4 papers as they have all sort of themes such as vacations, brands and many more. I also added the great rose stamp as I wanted the card to look more playful. Let me know what you think...

Hip hurray!

På våren har jag många runt mig som fyller år. Det är alltid bra att ha några grattiskort redo att ta till. Just detta har jag redan en person i åtanke för. Pappret med brädorna på är ett av mina absoluta favoriter (tillsammans med Basic Collection:-)!

In spring, I´ve many birthdays I want to celebrate. It´s always good to have some birthday cards ready to use. For this card in particular I already have someone in mind. The paper with the boards are one of my absolute favorites (along with Basic Collection :-)!

Jag har stämplat direkt på bakgrundspappret, jag ville få en liten känsla av "klotterplank". Några blommor i olika storlekar kompletterar det hela.

I´ve stamped directly on the background paper, I wanted to get a little feeling of "graffiti wall". Some flowers of various sizes complement the card.

Tack för idag! Kram; DT-Liza

Thanks for today! Hugs, DT-Liza

Background Technique Workshop: distress inks and stencils

Hiya everyone,

as promised last week I've created a little workshop for you on how to work with distress ink and stencils to create a great background:

1. Take a blank sheet of paper or any high quality design paper you like. Make sure the paper isn't coated or glossy. I suggest the paper by Reprint as they are not only beautiful but also high quality and able to soak up the extra liquid of the ink.

2. Place a stencil of your choise on the paper. Make sure the table you're working on is covered with some old newspaper or foil as it will be hard to get the paint off the table.

3. Use a sponge dabber, small sponge or one of these fancy mini ink blending tools from the reprint shop.

4. Choose any distress ink you like. You can even pick several colors if you like. I went for Evergreen Bough and Weathered Wood, which you can also find in the store. Make sure to start with the brighter color and hold the sponge upright to add the ink. Start by making little circles from the outside towards the middle of the paper so the colors will blend even more nicely.

5. You're actually already done by now, but if you like, you can even add another layer by moving the stencil a bit or choosing a differnt stencil to work with.

6. Take another color and just let the magic happen...

You can combine this background technique with any card, ATC or project you like. This it what I came up with last week. You can find all the details and details on the materials I've used here:

I hope you enjoyed this little workshop and I am looking forward to seing your project. Please make sure to tag them with #reprinthobby so we can have a look. Thank you.

With a simple tulip

Så här dags brukar ju tulpanerna vara krispiga, fina och finnas i en hel uppsjö av fräscha färger. Jag gillar tulpaner, i all dess enkelhet!
Kortet är också fint i all dess enkelhet. Här är återigen några favoriter ur Reprints Basic Collection-papper. Det går helt enkelt inte att låta bli dem!

This time a year the tulips usually are crispy, fine and comes in a great variety of fresh colors. I like tulips, in all its simplicity!
The card is also nice in all its simplicity. Again, I have used a few favorites from Reprints Basic Collection paper. It is simply impossible to resist them!

Stämpelmotivet är så himla fint med lite färg på blomman. Jag har valt att lägga till prickar på två sidor om motivet, för att halvt rama in det lite.

The stamp motif is just cute with some color on the flower. I have chosen to add dots on two sides of the motif, to frame it a little.

Tack för idag! Kram, DT-Liza

Thanks for today! Hugs, DT-Liza

The beat of your heart...

Hiya everyone,

it's been a long time since my last post here. Life's just been busy and I wasn't really able to make time for crafting. My plan for the rest of 2017 is to just make some daily time for myself, for crafting and for things I enjoy - such as playing with the great items from Reprint.

My 1st project this year is a square card which I've topped with the beautiful Reprint paper. I've picked the pale pink with the hearts and the grey dots. The paper is layered and I just ripped the edges in order to have a smooth overlay. The ripped area is cover with ink and glitter.

In order to add some depth I've used a stencil and some distress ink on the pink paper. I used the distress ink from Ranger called candied apple and shaded lilac. I will make a little workshop for next week in case you haven't used stencils before. It's really easy and you can create a great effect.

The stamp is one of my faves from Reprint - the beat of your heart is the rythm of your soul - so true!

I hope you enjoy my card. Thank you for having a look :-)
