Altenew Beautiful Day in Purple


Hi everyone,

after a little summer break, I'm back with this floral Birthday card using the «Beautiful Day» stamp set and Dye Inks from Altenew. I did some Masking to stamp the images.

I really love layering stamp sets and the classic look of these beautiful flowers! I added some tiny dots of «Lavender» Liquid Pearls to the pistils of the flower.

The sentiment is from the German Klartext-Stempel set «Glückwunsch» by Dani Peuss. I heat embossed it in white on a strip of black cardstock which I cut into a banner shape.

I cut a piece of striped paper and taped it to my card base before adhering my stamped panel (mounted on fun foam). To finish my card I added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

DT Make it Crafty CAS Challenge #15 | Hummingbird


Hello everyone,

today I show you my card for the last Make it Crafty CAS Challenge with the fun theme «Make it move!». All you have to do is create a project that incorporates some form of 'movement'.

I used the beautiful Hummingbird Digi Stamp from the new Elegant Birds Collection. I combined this cutie with the Hibiscus flower which is provided in the same download.

At first, I masked off the hibiscus and blended in some blue ink and let it fade out towards the centre. Then I colored the images with Copics and Prismacolor pencils. It's probably not realistic looking but I love the colors. To create my moving element, I fussy cut the hummingbird and put it on an Action Wobbler. I also added lots of shimmer to the bird with the ZIG Wink of Stella Glitter Brush Pen in Clear.

The sentiment is from the Mama Elephant «Make A Wish» stamp set. I stamped the text with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it using WOW! «Metallic Platinum» embossing powder. I added some Pretty Pink Posh «Sparkling Clear» sequins and my DIY rosy droplets.

Here is a short video to show you the wiggling hummingbird ;-)

There's still time to enter our «Make it move!» challenge by the end of the month. You can find all the details HERE.

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

DT Challenge #43


Good morning everyone,

it's the 15th of the month and we have a new and easy theme for the Challenge – «Anything Goes». 
This challenge will run until August 15th, 8:55 am CET (Central European Time).

I was totally in a summer mood when I created my card with these adorable flamingos from Lawn Fawn.

For my scene I used the «Flamingo Together» stamps and coordinating dies. I cut a circle with a Simon Says Stamp «Stitched Circle» die and stamped the sand hill from the «Life Is Good» set. I colored it with Copics as well as the flamingos, the heart (which I covered with Glossy Accents) and tiny flower. Then I masked off the sand hill and did some Ink Blending with «Tumbled Glass» Distress Ink.

The gorgeous sentiment which I stamped in VersaFine «Onyx Black» is from the «Big Scripty Words» set and I love the matching dies. I cut the striped patterned paper (Pebbles Jen Hadfield «Cottage Living» paper pad) with the largest SSS «Stitched Rectangle» die and put it onto a top-folding card base made from black cardstock. I adhered the circle and flamingos with foam tape for and tied a bow with Lawn Trimmings «Black Tie Single Cord». To finish my card, I added some Pretty Pink Posh «Metallic Rose Gold» and «Sparkling Clear» sequins.

I'm joining the following challenges:
Addicted to CAS – Challenge #92 Stripes
Everybody Art Challenge – Challenge #377 Summer/Holiday
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – Create A Scene

DT Stempelgarten Challenge July


Good morning everyone,

today starts the new Stempelgarten Challenge with the theme «Summer Holidays».

I made this fun summer-themed Slider Card using My Favorite Things products.

This Pure Innocence stamp set is called Fun In The Sun. I colored the image with Copics and used the coordinating dies to cut it out. I love that there is also a little die for the sunglasses which I covered with Glossy Accents. For her bathing suit I did some Paper Piecing and added a little shading with Copics.

I blended together the pretty Distress Ink colors «Cracked Pistachio», «Peacock Feathers» and «Mermaid Lagoon» to create a water background. I randomly splattered some water droplets to lift the color here and there.

Then I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in VersaFine «Onyx Black» on a piece of white cardstock and cut out a circle window using the MFT «Jumbo Peek-a-Boo» Die-namics.

To create my slider element I used one of the Lawn Fawn «Slide On Over» dies and applied LOTS of foam tape so the little girl would slide under the circle window.

Here's a little animation:

You will have time until July 31st, 2016 to join our challenge and this is the prize you could win:

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

DT Make it Crafty CAS Inspiration | Hugs Tag Card


Hi peeps,

it's my turn over at the Make it Crafty Store Blog and I tried something different and created this tag card.

I used the word «hugs» from the Outlined Words With Love Chipboard set and some pretty patterned papers from Pink Paislee and Simple Stories. I cut this large tag shape with the Avery Elle «A Tag For All» die – once from the floral patterned paper and a second time from white cardstock. Then I glued both tags together to make it more sturdy.

The chipboard was heat embossed with mint and black embossing powder and I adhered it to the tag at an angle. I cut some strips of patterned paper and used a stapler to attach these layered banners to my tag card. Then I made a bow from chevron ribbon and baker's twine. To finish my project I added some enamel dots.

Floral Thinking Of You Card


Hello everyone,

now and then you create a sympathy card for someone who has lost a beloved person. And sometimes you gonna make a card for someone who's still in grief about this loss. Because mourning takes time and everyone is different. So, I like the idea of sending out «Thinking Of You» cards to let them know that I feel for them.

Here is the card that I made recently:

I kept it pretty simple by white heat embossing this beautiful floral image from Studio Calico/Jasmine Jones onto «Pool Party/Aquamarin» cardstock by Stampin' Up!. Then I added some light shading to the blossoms' petals with Prismacolor Pencils in white and aqua. I stamped the sentiment (from the German SU set «Malerische Grüsse» which means «I'm thinking of you») with VersaFine «Onyx Black».

I die-cut my panel with the My Favorite Things «Inside & Out Stitched Rounded Rectangle STAX» Die-namics and popped up the outside piece with foam tape. I think this almost looks like a frame.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
