Lettering Attack

Good afternoon everyone,

I hope you had a great week and looking as much forward for the weekend to begin as I do. It's suppose to be sunny over here but I honestly wouldn't be sad if it would be rainy as I need a good reason to stay inside...

Lettering is one of the latest trends when it comes to crafting and it needs quite some time to get the skills and nice letters done. That's why I was really excited when I found out that Reprint has great news stamps in beautiful lettering style. Make sure to check out the webshop to see the other ones

"Collect moments not things" is most likely what pops into my mind when the postman rings first thing in the moment, but I really needed to have this stamps. What's you're favorite line or mantra? Which saying would you like to get as a stamp?

Make sure to tag your ideas and inspirations with #reprinthobby so we won't miss them...

Surprise Can

Hello everyone,

today I'm showing you a little box I've made which works just perfect as a last minute easter nest, birthday surprise or little give-away.

I took an emty can, cutted out 2 circles - one in plain white and one of my favorite Reprint designpaper, layered them and added some scrabble letters.

The can fits 100ml - so there is plenty of space for some money, a little surprise or a few kind words for a loved person.

Three little chicks!

Här är det tre små kycklingar som fastnat på film! Ett väldigt sparsmakat kort med inga egentliga dekorationer, "bara" kycklingarna.

Here are the three little chicks caught on film! A very simple card with no decorations really, "only" the chickens.

Kycklingarna är enkelt och lite "slarvigt" färglagda, vilket ger liv åt bilden.

The chicks are colored a bit "sloppy", giving life to the picture.

Tack för idag! Kram, DT-Liza

Thanks for today! Hugs, DT-Liza

Greetings from the Easter bunny

På lördag är det påskafton, en dag som många barn längtar till, inklusive mina.
Här i stan har vi påskparad där både barn och vuxna klär ut sig och tågar en slinga genom city. Flera hundra ställer upp och är med, och det är så härlig stämning. Och så allt godis lockar också såklart!
Men i väntan på det roar jag mig med att göra kort som ska ges bort ihop med påskpresenterna.
Årets färgtema är grönt och gult (surprise!).

On Saturday it´s Easter Saturday, a day that many children are longing for, including mine.
In my hometown we have an Easter parade where both children and adults dress up and march through the centre. Hundreds attend, and it's a fantastic atmosphere. And all the candy attracts too of course!
But while waiting for it I amuse myself by making cards to be given away together with the Easter presents.
This year's color theme is green and yellow (surprise!).

Olika band och glittertejp mixas för att få lite lager-på-lager effekt. Pilen är målad med grön tusch och sedan piffad med glitterlim.

Different ribbons and glitter tape are mixed together to make a layer-on-layer effect. The arrow is painted in green and then coated with glitter glue.

Tack för idag! Kram, DT-Liza

Thanks for today! Hugs, DT-Liza

1..2..3..goodies bags

Hello everyone,

First of all I want to thank all and everyone of you who came over and said "Hi" at the Creativa trade fair in Dortmund. It was great seing you!

Today I want to a quick and easy way to create some last minute wrappings for small gifts or give-aways.

1. Get yourself some of the white bread paper bags. They are really cheap and you can basically get them in lots at any supermarket or drug store.

2. Cut stripes of any papers you like. You can even use some of the left overs from your last paper projects.

3. Stamp your favorite round stamps and cut them out. It will save some extra time using a round puncher.

4. If you like, add a scallop or flower punch behind the circle.

5. Fold the top of your bag so it's closed.

6. Clip - or staple - all the items and add them on top of the bag.

DONE ! :-D

Say it with a song

Tack var det fina notpappret i bakgrunden känns det här annars enkla kortet riktigt genomarbetat.

Thanks to the pretty music sheet in the background, this otherwise simple card looks quite detailed.

Stämpeln är embossad med guldpulver, och med några rhinestones och en blomma i turkos känns kortet helt komplett och redo att lämnas över till födelsedagsbarnet!

The stamp is embossed using a gold powder, and with the addition of a few turquise rhinestones and a matching flower, the card is ready to be handed over to the birthday boy!

Birds nest

Många av Reprints mönstrade papper är så fina i sig att de egentligen inte behöver kompletteras med så mycket mer. Här har två papper från två olika kollektioner förenats. Bakgrunden har stämplats med en stor fin textstämpel.

Many of the patterned paper from Reprint are so nice in itself that they do not really need to be supplemented with so much more. Here are two papers from two different collections combined. The background is stamped with a large text stamp.

De små söta fåglarna har klippts ut ur ett annat papper och satts fast med 3D-kuddar.

The cute little birds have been cut out from another paper and attached with 3D foam pads.

Och såklart - lite glitterlim på äggen!

And some glitter glue on the eggs of course!

Tack för idag! Kram, DT-Liza

Thanks for today! Hugs, DT-Liza

Welcome box

Ibland när vi ska få hem gäster på middag tycker jag att det är kul att göra någon form av välkomstgåva som står vid varje tallrik. Det ger en liten lyxig känsla - och så är det så kul att få göra dem!
Här är en liten box gjord av ett papper ur Reprints härliga "köksserie". Boxen är gjord efter en mall som jag hittat på Internet. Sedan har jag sotat alla vikta kanter och ytterkanterna.

Sometimes when we get guests home for dinner, it's fun to do some kind of welcome gift lying on each plate. It gives a little touch of luxury - and it's so fun to do them!
Here is a small box made of a paper from Reprints lovely "kitchen series". The box is made by a template that I found on the Internet. I have inked all folded edges and outer edges.

Skylten är stämplad med en välkomsttext samt med en stämpel med glas på i en svag färg så att det bara syns lite i bakgrunden. Några pärlor och ett par blommor fick också plats.

The plate is stamped with a welcome note, and a stamp with glass was stamped in a light color so it just shows a bit in the background. A few pearls and a few flowers were also glued on.

Inuti asken syns den andra sidan av pappret, som egentligen är framsidan tror jag. Men som med alla Reprints papper är båda sidorna lika fina! Det är alltid svårt att välja, men det är ett kärt bekymmer =)

Inside the box you can see the other side of the paper, which is really the front, I think. But as with any of Reprints paper, both sides just as nice! It´s always difficult to choose, but it is a dear trouble  =)

Tack för idag! Kram, DT-Liza

Thanks for today! Hugs, DT-Liza

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

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 :-)

Beacuse you are there!

Jag har en vän som jag uppskattar extra mycket just nu, och det tänkte jag berätta för henne. Med dessa etiketter kommer man långt! Jag har bara lagt till en text som passar bra. Texten har egentligen en ram runt i original, men jag har bara färgat in texten när jag stämplade.

I have a friend that I appreciate a bit extra right now, and I thought I would tell her. With these labels you get far! I've just added a text that fits well. The text actually has a frame around on the original, but I have only colored the text when I stamped.

Och med några detaljer som blommor och halvpärlor behövs det inget mer.

And with some flowers and pearls you don´t need anything else.

Tack för idag! Kram, DT-Liza

Bright colors

Nu är det nytt år, alla julsaker är borttagna, och jag är sugen på FÄRG! Jag faller ofta tillbaka på gamla favoriter och de första färgerna av Basic Collection ligger mig fortfarande varmt om hjärtat.

Däremot ville jag göra layouten lite annorlunda och efter att ha flyttat runt bitarna ett slag hamnade de så här. För att markera kvadraterna ritade jag ramar runt lite slarvigt.

Now it's a new year, all Christmas decorations are removed, and I'm eager to use bright COLORS! I often fall back on old favorites and the first colors of the Basic Collection are still dear to my heart.

However, I wanted to make the layout a bit different and after moving around the pieces a while they ended up like this. To mark the squares I drew the frames around a bit sloppy.

Stämpeln med paketen tror jag egentligen är en julstämpel, men färglagd med olika starka färger blir det en fin hög med födelsedagspresenter! Dem har jag också "slarvmålat" för att få lite liv i dem.

The stamp with the packages I think is really a christmas motif, but colored with different bright colors, it became a nice pile of birthday gifts! I also painted the gifts a bit "sloppy" to get some life into them.

Tack för idag, och god fortsättning på det nya året! Kram, DT-Liza

Thanks for today, and I wish you a good year! Hugs, DT Liza
