My Favorite Things Blissful Blooms Hello Gorgeous

21.03.2017

Hi everyone,

Spring is finally here and today I'm sharing this pastel card I made using some fabulous My Favorite Things products.

At first I created my floral background stamping the images from the «Blissful Blooms» stamp set in VersaMark and heat embossing them in white. Next, I did some soft ink blending using MFT Premium Dye Inks (Lemon Chiffon, Insulation Pink, Bubblegum). I die cut the panel using the stitched rectangle from the «Blueprints 29» Die-namics set. I also cut a piece of golden glitter cardstock slightly larger than my floral panel and adhered them to my white top-folding card base.

For my sentiment, I combined a stacked «hello» (once cut from golden glitter cardstock and twice from white cardstock) with the golden heat embossed word «gorgeous» from the «Label Maker Love» stamp set. To finish my card, I added little Nuvo Jewel Drops.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

DT bastel-traum.ch Challenge #51

15.03.2017

Good morning everyone,

it's time for a new challenge over at the bastel-traum.ch Blog with the theme «Easter/Polka Dots»
http://bastel-traum.blogspot.ch/ 
This challenge will run until April 15th, 8:55 am CET (Central European Time).

I'm totally in the mood for Spring and created this Easter card using the adorable bunnies from the Reverse Confetti «Hippity Hoppity» stamp set, that I got as a gift from my sweet friend Francine.


I colored the images (love the little accessories) with Copics and fussy cut them out. I created a circle shaped card using the Hero Arts «Nesting Circle Dies» and My Favorite Things Die-namics («Stitched Mini Scallop Circle», «Grass Edges») along with patterned papers by Lawn Fawn («Let's Polka In The Meadow») and MFT («Dots & Stripes Sorbet»).

I adhered the bunnies with foam tape and tucked the basket with easter eggs behind the grass. Finally, I white heat embossed the sentiment on navy cardstock and cut it using a MFT banner die («Tag Builder Blueprints 5»).

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

DT bastel-traum.ch Challenge #50

15.02.2017

Good morning everyone,

it's already time for another challenge over at the bastel-traum.ch Blog. We invite you to choose between or even combine the themes «Birthday / Birth / White and one color of your choice»
http://bastel-traum.blogspot.ch/ 
This challenge will run until March 15th, 8:55 am CET (Central European Time).

I made a CAS card to welcome a baby girl by re-creating this card which I made almost 3 years ago ;-)

I cut four strips from different shades of pink Stampin' Up! cardstock using a My Favorite Things Blueprints 29 die. Next, I temporarily adhered them to a piece of scratch paper with the same spacing in between. I placed the Papertrey Ink «Wonderful Words: Baby» die on top of my ombré stripes and run it through my die-cutting machine. I carefully removed the die and made sure I didn't loose any of the tiny cut-outs from between the letters.

To create some dimension, I die cut the word «baby» five times from white cardstock and stacked all layers on top of each other. I adhered it to my card base at an angle and then inlaid the cardstock stripes. It really took a little patience, but it was so worth it in the end. Finally, I added a white heat embossed sentiment (which means «Congratulations»; Dani Peuss Klartext-Stempel «Glückwunsch») and a small die-cut heart.

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

DT Stempelgarten Challenge February

05.02.2017

Hi peeps,

sorry for being MIA lately, but I somehow lost my mojo after the holidays and really struggled with making cards.

Today I'm finally back sharing a card for the Stempelgarten Challenge with the new theme «Non-cute».

http://stempelgartenchallenge.blogspot.ch/

I was in the mood to create a floral card with a red and blue color scheme. Stamping backgrounds is so relaxing ;-)

I used images out of four My Favorite Things stamp sets («Bold Blooms», «Desert Bouquet», «Fall Florals» and LJD «Spring Wreath») along with some beautiful Savvy woodblock stamps («Flower Cube», «Outline Posey»).

The red inks are from My Favorite Things (Peach Bellini, Coral Crush, Persimmon) and I combined them with Altenew blue inks (Caribbean Sky, Persian Blue, Sapphire) and Blue Jay by Simon Says Stamp.

I stamped the sentiment from the MFT «Geometric Greenery» set with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it in white on a strip of navy blue cardstock. I used a die from the MFT «Blueprint 27» set and adhered the banner with foam tape.

You will have time until February 28th, 2017 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.–.

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

DT bastel-traum.ch Challenge #49

15.01.2017

Hi everyone,

today starts a new bastel-traum.ch Challenge and this time it's all about «Friends» :-)
http://bastel-traum.blogspot.ch/ 
This challenge will run until February 15th, 8:55 am CET (Central European Time).

I created this scene using some fabulous My Favorite Things products as well as my Distress Inks for a beautiful ink blended night sky.

I stamped the adorable girl and her cute dog from the MFT Birdie Brown «You Have My Heart» set and colored them with Copics. I fussy cut the image leaving a small white border and added a bit of sparkle to her blue dress with the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush Pen.

For the Distress Ink background, I patiently blended together the gorgeous colors Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Seedless Preserves, Chipped Sapphire and a little bit of MFT Black Licorice Hybrid Ink. When everything was completely dry, I used the MFT «Stars in the Sky - Horizontal» Die-namics right onto my ink blended panel. I also die-cut the stars from golden glitter cardstock and inlaid them into the negative.

The text from the MFT «Essential Sentiments» set (one of my current favorites) was heat embossed in white. Finally, I adhered the image with foam tape and added a red die-cut heart which I covered with Glossy Accents.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Enjoy your Sunday!

DT Stempelgarten Challenge January

07.01.2017

Hi crafty friends,

I'm finally back to share a card with you. Hope you've enjoyed the holidays and had a pleasant start into the new year. I myself am slowly trying to get back into the swing of things ;-)

The Stempelgarten Challenge already started two days ago– this month's theme is «No-Line Coloring».

http://stempelgartenchallenge.blogspot.ch/

I'm pretty new to this technique but I often admire other cardmakers using it. For Christmas, I received a big pack of Prismacolor Pencils and I couldn't wait to color with them. Although it's pretty cold outside and we also got some snow, I made this floral more spring-themed card.

I love the look of colored pencils on Kraft cardstock, so I stamped the My Favorite Things «Spring Tulips» (I did some Masking to create the bouquet) in Memento «Desert Sand». I really enjoyed the coloring, although it's not perfect.

Since my mojo was still in holiday mode, I followed the current sketch of the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge:

I die cut my colored image with the MFT «Stitched Oval Scallop Edge Frames». For the frame I stacked three layers of cardstock to give it some dimension and then inlaid the oval. The patterned paper is from the MFT «Dots & Stripes Neutral 6x6 Paper Pack» and I adhered it to a light pink card base.

Next, I chose a stitched banner from the «Blueprints 28» Die-namics set and cut it from raspberry colored cardstock. I white heat embossed the sentiment (MFT «Essential Sentiments») and popped up the strip with foam tape. Finally, I added three iridescent sequins.

You will have time until January 31st, 2017 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.–.

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