DT bastel-traum.ch Challenge #64

15.04.2018

Good morning crafty friends,

Spring is finally here and there's a new theme over at the bastel-traum.ch blog: «Flowers/Mother's Day».
http://bastel-traum.blogspot.ch/ 
This challenge will run until May 15th, 8:55 am CET (Central European Time).

I created this floral Mother's Day card for my mom using the gorgeous WPlus9 «Kind Soul» stamp.

I watercolored these beautiful flowers with my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens and fussy cut them out leaving a small white border. Next, I adhered them to a light pink top-folding card base on which I gold heat embossed the sentiment from the Clearly Besotted Stamps «Fresh Flowers» set. I kept the card simple and only added some Nuvo Jewel Drops.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a beautiful Sunday!

Stampin' Up! Party Panda Birthday Card

11.04.2018

Good morning everyone,

I really enjoy playing with stencils and inks lately – so I recreated a card that I made a couple of weeks ago. It uses the same layout and starburst stencil by Florilèges («Etoile Rayonnante»). This time I chose the following Distress Oxides: Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron and Peacock Feathers.

This cute little guy is from the Stampin' Up! «Party-Pandas» stamp set (SAB 2018). I colored the balloon with Copics and covered it with Glossy Accents. I fussy cut the image and popped it up with foam tape. The birthday sentiment is from the My Favorite Things «Meant To Bee» set and I stamped it in VersaFine «Onyx Black». Finally, I added some die-cut stars.

Once again, I'm joining the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge with the theme «Happy Birthday».

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

Stenciled Masculine Birthday Card

10.04.2018

Hi peeps,

most of the time, I find it more difficult to create masculine cards. But the fun Altenew «Cube Builder» stencil and the cool «Birthday Palooza» stamp set by CZ Design for Simon Says Stamp really did the trick.

The «Sweet Dreams» inks I used for the stenciling are also by Altenew. I love that there are four shades of one color in one mini ink cube set. This really takes the guesswork out of choosing the right colors. I white heat embossed the sentiment on MFT «Steel Grey» cardstock.

Although this card is actually supposed to be for a man, I added a little bit of bling by adhering three Pretty Pink Posh «Sea Glass» jewels.

I'm entering the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge with the theme «Happy Birthday». Congratulations on celebrating your 9th birthday and thanks for the chance to win one of nine 50$ Gift Vouchers!

Thank you so much for stopping by! See you tomorrow :-)

DT Stempelgarten Challenge April

05.04.2018

Hello everyone,

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter. We enjoyed some precious family time and finally warmer temperatures outside. Which brings me to our new Stempelgarten Challenge with the theme «Spring».

http://stempelgartenchallenge.blogspot.ch/

I made this CAS card with some of my beloved My Favorite Things products. The chick and the bunny are from the «Hoppy Friends» set – I really like the smaller stamp sets that MFT  is releasing lately.

I colored these cuties with Copics and fussy cut them out with scissors. For my background, I masked off a rectangle and did some blending with Distress Inks. The sky was made with the help of the «Cloud» stencil. I stamped the sentiment from the «Handwritten Happiness» set directly on top using VersaFine «Onyx Black» ink.

You will have time until April 30th, 2018 to join the Stempelgarten Challenge and this is the prize you could win:


A craft package from the Stempelgarten Online Shop with a value of CHF 20.–.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

DT bastel-traum.ch Challenge #63

15.03.2018

Good morning everyone,

the days are getting longer and warmer and we have the matching challenge going on over at the bastel-traum.ch blog. The new theme is «Easter/Spring».
http://bastel-traum.blogspot.ch/ 
This challenge will run until April 15th, 8:55 am CET (Central European Time).

I made this cute Easter card using some of the fabulous Lawn Fawn products which were released lately.

I stamped two of the images from the «Easter Party» set and colored them with my Copics. I fussy cut them right against the stamped outline. Next, I created a little spring scene inside a polaroid combining an ink blended background and some die-cuts. I also used the gorgeous «Quilted Backdrop» in the background. To finish off my card, I tied a bow with bakers twine and added tiny Nuvo drops.

I'm entering the current Lawn Fawnatics «Fun with Dies» challenge:


Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great day!

Hero Arts Manatee Birthday Card

26.02.2018

Happy Monday everyone,

today I want to share with you the birthday card that I made for my dad featuring the Hero Arts «Manatee Stamp & Cut» set. It contains some coordinating dies to match the stamps which is very convenient.

I colored the images with Copics and dressed up the manatee with a top hat and a tied bow. For the background, I sponged some Distress Oxide Inks («Salty Ocean», «Peacock Feathers» and «Cracked Pistachio») through a fun starburst stencil by Florilèges («Etoile Rayonnante»).

I stamped the sentiment from the same set in VersaFine «Onyx Black» and added black enamel dots to finish off my card.

I'm entering the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge with the theme «Make Your Own Background»

Thank you so much for stopping by! Hope you'll have a fantastic week!

DT bastel-traum.ch Challenge #62

15.02.2018

Hi crafty peeps,

we already reached the mid of February – this means we have a new challenge over at the bastel-traum.ch blog for you. The theme is pretty easy and versatile: «Birthday/Party».
http://bastel-traum.blogspot.ch/ 
This challenge will run until March 15th, 8:55 am CET (Central European Time).

Alcohol Inks made a huge comeback these days, so I decided to create a background on Yupo Paper with aqua, blue and green tones. I thought it would be fun to use the Inlaid Die Cutting technique with the Memory Box «Fresh Foliage» die.

The sentiment is from the Winnie & Walter «The Party» stamp set and I heat embossed it with Ranger «Liquid Platinum» powder. I cut a mat from SSS «Fog» cardstock using a MFT «Stitched Rectangle» die. To finish off my card, I adhered «Crystal Rainbow Confetti» from Studio Katia.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Happy Crafting!
