A last summer hooray!

Hey there, everyone!

So interpreting season is in full swing (yay!) and The Move is happening (and has been happening for a few weeks now). It is therefore safe to say I have my hands full 😀

I also just came back from a week in South Tyrol, which was spent interpreting and enjoying the beautiful fall sunshine in this marvelous landscape.

Today I have two last summery cards for you – number one was made for my brother’s birthday and I was very much inspired by Julia‘s amazing use of leaf dies and that stunning paper flip-flop display created by Steffi Ried (who I had the chance to meet last weekend!! We had a great time making a mini album!).

Beauty_rde6_FotorThe flip-flops were hand-drawn on the back of a piece of patterned paper (Pink Paislee Confetti wishes 09) and then cut out with a craft knife.

The straps were cut with my guillotine trimmer from some matching PP (Crate Paper Poolside Sunshine) and everything was assembled by tinkering with the width of the straps and of the cuts in the soles a bit.

I popped the handmade sandals up on some foam adhesive and backed everything with a few pretty Monstera and Sorbier leaves (c/o Charlie & Paulchen and Kesi’art) and a sort of “sun” (an older PTI die).

The stamped sentiment is Kristina Werner with SimonSaysStamp and adhered with dimensionals as well.

Next up, we have a “Thank you” card using brand new Dani Peuss Klartext stamp sets, again inspired by Julia’s magnificent die-cut leaves and meant to put a smile on the face of a special someone 🙂

Using the Mini Misti with this set makes stamp positioning a breeze and before you know it, you have a beautiful sentiment for your card.

I added the two words atop by hand (first drew them lightly with a pencil, then used a simple black fineliner – Edding 88 is my all-time favourite – to finish it off).

Black Mr. Hueys to complete the look and the papers used here are Mahé, Basic Grey, Crate Paper and PTI Raspberry Fizz.

Since this little card was sent from South Tyrol, I am a bit weary regarding its whereabouts and whether it will make it to the recipient… oh the Italian mail service… I don’t trust them one bit, but really wanted to finally mail the card! What a dilemma!

Anyway, I’m off to do some more moving stuff from one room to another and organizing and writing invoices – may the extra hour mean getting more done!! 🙂

Cheerio,
Nina
