I created only one background piece with a heat embossing and inking technique, and with a clever trick I got two cards out of the one background piece.

Hello everyone,

It´s Sanna here with another guest designer post. Have you ever been in a situation when you need a card on really short notice? Or want to quickly make a masculine card? I thought I´d share a few simple ideas I like to use when these occasions occur.

I have created three simple card ideas that can be varied in style by changing the papers and colors or by choosing alternative dies. Here are the instructions:

February 11, 2018

Hello there everyone, it´s Sanna here today with a scrapbook layout tutorial and a pair of cards. For this month´s tutorial I´ve again recorded a start-to-finish video for you to watch.

Monochromatic Die Cut Glittered Background Card

December 21, 2017

Hello there everyone, Sanna here today. Welcome to my last tutorial of the year, the last project I’ll be doing as a member of the Die Cut Design Team. It´s been a fabulous two years and I have enjoyed every minute of it.  But before I tell you more about that, I´d like to share this card tutorial with you.
This card – well these cards, actually – were inspired by the recent background challenge. As you might recall, I made quite a few cards for that challenge. I love creating backgrounds for my projects with dies, stencils and stamps as well as various media. This card features one of the newest background dies and this is how I created it:

Die Cut Cards with Distress Oxide Backgrounds

August 17, 2017

Hello everybody, it´s Sanna here and it´s my turn to post a tutorial for the Die Cut Design Team today. If you know me, you know that I love color. I have been going up and down ever since the Distress Oxides arrived and told myself I don´t really need more inks. Well, eventually I gave in and got myself a set of six colors. Needless to say, I totally fell in love with the inks and I am afraid I am going to need a few more colors soon. The inks work so nicely with the Soft Finish Cardstock, too. (Am I finding excuses to buy a few more colors? Yes, I am…)  Continue Reading

Hello everyone,

It´s Sanna here, and it´s my turn to post a tutorial for the Die Cut Design Team. Today I decided to share a DIY foam stamp idea with you. Sometimes when you look at a die you wish there would be a stamp like that available too. That is what I thought when I saw the new ModaScrap dies! They can be used to create gorgeous stamps and I´d like to show you how I made some DIY foam stamps as well as how I used the stamps for card backgrounds.

December 6, 2016

Hello everyone, Sanna here again today. The Flower Cluster 1 die, for some reason reminds me of a poinsettia in a way. When I realized this, I already knew that I wanted to try and use this die for Christmas themed cards. Here is what I came up with:
