Guest Designer, Sanna Lippert, Part Three

Hello and Happy Thursday!

Our Guest Designer, Sanna Lippert is back with a A LOT of  projects!  She just couldn't stop, but we loved that!  We seriously love her creativity and are so happy she created more today!

Let's get right to her projects!

After finishing the second canvas I had still plenty of with water mixed "Magicals" over so I took a 12x12 inch piece of thick watercolor paper and very freely applied plenty of color on the paper (as you can see on the photo, there is a green lake on the paper :)…). The just waited patiently for the colors to dry (might I add that I am not THAT patient…). So it was a long wait for me…

For the first card I cut a piece of that paper out to create a lovely orange background. I added some green "Maginal" drops with a paint brush over the orange layer for detail and then I took the white paper bag that all the lovely Frog Dog Studio goodies were in and stamped some leaves on it. I wanted to use the bag as the paper is fairly thin which makes it easy to glue it down on the card with "Glue n´Seal" medium.

Next I just added a sentiment and the first card was finished. I used StudioAE stamps by Technique Tuesday for this purpose and stamped with black ink.

For my next card I first took a plain white card base, added some black color splatters on the background (Magicals), let them dry, stamped some border images on the white paper bag, glued those down onto the card using "Glue n´ Seal" medium and tucked the playing card that I had over from the kit behind the stamped borders. 
Then I just added a sentiment and some spray ink splatters for more interest and the second card was done. (photos: mixingwithwater, blacksplatters, stampedonpaperbag & a full and a detail photo of the card)

For the third card I first punched some circles out of the watercolor paper everything had started with, inked the circle edges black and added some Tim Holtz Rubs onto the circles. 
Then I took a card base, added some black splatters (Magicals), glued the circles down, stamped a sentiment and the card was finished. I just love the two toned powders – the shine is so beautiful!!! (photos: punched circles, splattersandinkededges, rubs, beautifulshine, and a detail + full photo of the card)

For the fourth card I stamped some leave images directly onto the watercolor paper and glued it down onto a card base. 
Next I punched various sized circles out of the leftover stamp sheet, inked the edges black and then layered them to create a flower. The leaves are from my junk drawer and made out of artificial leather. Their color was perfect for this card. Finally I just added a quote on a personalized tag, glued a butterfly button in the centre of the flower and added some dimensional pearls for more interest. (photos: fallenleaf_full, stampingleaves)
For the fifth card I again used a piece of that watercolor paper as a background and added some black (Magicals) splatter over the surface. You might have noticed by now how much I like to use color splatters ;-). Next I took some struckture paste, mixed it with the black "Magicals" powder to get a darker tone and applied it over a The Crafter´s Workshop stencil ("halftone circles"). 
Next I took some circles to create more flowers. I layered different papers over each other to create a different looking flowers as on the previous card.  The leaves are fussy cut and glued down partly under the flowers. I also stamped a scallop border onto the card with black ink and fussy cut along it to add more interest to the card. 
For final detail I again added some dimensional pearls into the centre of the flowers and finally stamped my sentiment. (photos: liveinthemoment_full, circlespunched, stencilledcircles, addingmoldingpaste, splatters, coloringstruckturepaste)

 For my sixth card I used similar techniques as on the card before (watercolor background, added some molding paste, punched circles etc.). It is just a different stencil (four ferns by The Crafter´s Workshop) and there are some wooden buttons for decoration. Also I stamped another sentiment and a different border for this one. Other than that, it is done in the same way.

And finally card number 7.  For this card I tried used the last punched circles and some of the lovely rub-ons that were on the kit. 
I stamped a border, fussy cut it, glued it down on the upper end of the card, added some rub-ons for detail and glue down the circles. And naturally, there had to be some black "Magicals" splatters in there too. Then I just stemped a sentiment and my last card was done.

And the best thing? I still have so much product left that I can create many more projects using the goodies that were in the kit!! I´ve loved using this kit and hope you will enjoy my little projects and get inspired!! It has been a pleasure being here!! Thank you Frog Dog Studio and Tina for having me. It was really great fun!!!
