DT Everybody-Art-Challenge #297

Good morning folks,

it's Tuesday again and we have a new theme over at the Everybody-Art-Challenge
we want to see «Flags» on your projects.

OK, my flags are more likely banners ;o)

I created a baby boy card. By adding the newborn's name to the banners (Simon Says Stamp «Party Banner» die) I could easily personalize my card. I used the tiny alpha stickers from Lily Bee Designs. The giraffe and the elephant were cut from patterned paper (Stampin' Up!) with those lovely dies by Die-Versions. I adhered them with foam tape in two different depths. The beautiful German sentiment (which means «Welcome little sunshine») is by Alexandra Renke. I stamped it in «Midnight Muse» which is from Stampin' Up! as well as the cardstock.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

DT Challenge October

Good morning peeps,

it's time for the Challenge (runs until November 15th, 8:55 am CET) with the new theme «Black & White».

For my card I've chosen the sweet «Pandamonium» stamp set by Mama Elephant.
I created a little family scene for a birthday card.

The pandas are stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder and fussy cut. Since the theme reminds me of Comics I wanted to use the «Speech Bubble  Border» die from Lawn Fawn. I die-cut it from white and black cardstock and layered both panels by slightly shifting them. The sentiment is a combo of the stamped «Happy» (Simon Says Stamp) and the negative «birthday» die cut (Papertrey Ink). The second sentiment («Everyday greetings») and the little stars («Make a Wish») are from Mama Elephant, too. I made the balloon by stamping one of the patterns from Reverse Confetti's «So Stripey» and then die-cut it using a balloon die from Paper Smooches. Finally I added some sparkle to the stamped stars with the Clear Wink of Stella Brush Glitter Brush Pen.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

DT Everybody-Art-Challenge #296

Hi everyone,

today starts the new Everybody-Art-Challenge with the theme «Leaves».

Of course I had to create another autumn card. This time I used the gorgeous «A Tree for all Seasons» stamp set from Winnie & Walter which I luckily won some weeks ago.

I repeatedly stamped the solid leaf image in three different Simon Says Stamp inks («Goldenlocks», «Coral Reef» and «Beenstalk Green») all across the card. After that I stamped the outline image in VersaMark and heat embossed it in Gold («Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder» by Ranger).

For the sentiment I created a little leave window using one of the leaf dies («Stitched Leaves») from Lawn Fawn. I stamped the «thank you» from Avery Elle onto some vellum and heat embossed it in Gold, too. Then I adhered it behind the window. To finish my card I added some golden sequins.

Thanks for stopping by and see you soon!

DT Stempelgarten Challenge October

Good morning everyone,

it's time for a new Stempelgarten Challenge and the theme for the month October
is «Candy Packaging».

We are also looking for new DT members, so please take the chance to apply to our team by joining this month's challenge.

I created a so-called «Sour Cream Container».

On the internet you can find lots of instructions for this quick and easy-to-build box.
I used a sheet of the beautiful floral «Farmhouse» DP by Crate Paper. To close the container I punched a hole and run through some Stampin' Up! Ruffled Ribbon and tied a knot. The tag attached to the ribbon was cut with one of the SU «Chalk Talk» Framelits dies. This gorgeous «Sweet» word die is from Whimsy Stamps and to complete my sentiment I white heat embossed the versatile tiny words from the Winnie & Walter stamp set «The Big, the Bold and the You». To make this container even cuter ;o) I added the little «Lolli Beatrice» by C.C. Designs. I colored her with my Copics, then fussy cut her and applied a thick coat of Glossy Accents to the lollipop.

The challenge runs until October 31, 2014 and this time you can win a voucher with a value of CHF 20.– for the Stempelgarten Online Shop.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great Sunday!

DT Everybody-Art-Challenge #294

Good morning folks,

it's already the last day of September and probably some of you already started with the christmas cards production. I'm more in the autumn mood at the moment. But
my today's card for the Everybody-Art-Challenge is whether autumn nor christmas related but would be perfect for Valentine's Day ;o)

The theme for this week is «Key».

I immediately thought of something like «You hold the key to my heart». But since
I do not own a sentiment stamp with that specific text, I chose the «I just love you.» by Technique Tuesday. I stamped it directly on the patterned paper (My Mind's Eye Lost & Found «Portobello Road») with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it using ZING! «Red» metallic embossing powder. The chipboard heart is from Pink Paislee and I wrapped some May Arts natural jute string around it and attached the key charm. The cardstock is from Stampin' Up! and to finish my card I added a couple of sparkling sequins by Pretty Pink Posh.

Although this is a more simple card it took me quite a while to put it together ;o)

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Same but different #1

Francine and I are two cardmakers from Switzerland. We love the same stamps and products! We also like to play with the different crafting techniques. This is why we decided to start a monthly challenge between both of us, which consists of creating a project with the same stamp, craft supplies or technique. It will be such fun seeing the similarities and differences in how the two of us use the same stuff. We got inspired by Jennifer McGuire (she spoke about those challenges in the Kick Start Online Card Class) and also by Christine’s and Anni’s «Lottie and Lisa» («Das doppelte Lottchen»).

We call our challenge «Same but different».
Doesn’t that sound like a cool challenge? If you have the same stamp and if you get inspired by our challenge, feel free to play it with us! Leave a direct link to your project in the comment field below (No back links, please! It will be funnier to see new creations!). You can also upload your cards to our Same but different challenge Flickr gallery!

Ok, let’s start with the first «Same but different» challenge.

Here is a peek at the stamp set we used:

And here is my take:

Oh, how I LOVE these cute critters! I immediately knew I wanted to create a card that symbolizes friendship! That's why I picked the fox and the bunny to hold a big heart with a lovely message for a dear friend. I colored the images with my Copics. You can hardly see it on the photo but I repeatedly stamped the sentiment «Sweet Friend» (Wplus9 «Hand Lettered Hello») onto the die-cut heart (MFT Die-namics «Heart Full of Love») in «Sea Glass» ink from Simon Says Stamp and sponged the edges. I also heat embossed the same sentiment in white on the banner. The large handwritten «Thinking of you» is from the SSS stamp set «Sending Happy Thoughts» and I heat embossed it with «Liquid Platinum» embossing powder from Ranger. For the sunburst background I used a Lifestyle Crafts embossing folder («Celebrate»).

Now hop over to Francine to see her gorgeous creation.

Hope you had fun with this post! See you next month for a new «Same but different» challenge. Thanks for stopping by!

DT Everybody-Art-Challenge #293

Hello everybody,

today I want to show you my DT project for the current Everybody-Art-Challenge with the theme «Chocolate».

I decided to create a fun Halloween wrapping for some Chocolate Drinking Straws that I recently found in one of our supermarkets. My son loves them! It's so easy – just put a straw in a glass of milk and you have the perfect chocolate drink. Yummy!

photo effects by

At first I stamped a couple of the sweet images from the Lawn Fawn «Spooktacular» stamp set in VersaMark. The tiny bats are from an older Whiff of Joy stamp set called «Happy Halloween». I heat embossed all the images with clear embossing powder. The sentiment and the cute little cat with the witch hat are heat embossed in white. The label was cut with a Framelits die by Stampin' Up! («Apothecary Accents»).

I draw some dashed lines with a white gel pen and added some sparkle on the witch hat with the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush Pens (in Clear, Black and Gold). The checked ribbon, the baker's twine and the pumpkin charm are from my stash.

That's all from me for today but I would love to see you on my blog tomorrow. So stay tuned for the upcoming fun:

Thanks for stopping by!
