DT bastel-traum.ch Challenge #53

15.05.2017

Hello everyone,

today starts a new challenge over at the bastel-traum.ch Blog and it's all about Men/Boys.
http://bastel-traum.blogspot.ch/ 
This challenge will run until June 15th, 8:55 am CET (Central European Time).

It's always challenging to create those masculine cards, so I decided to play with the fabulous new Distress Oxide Inks and the «Emboss Resist Technique» for my dad's Father's Day card.

At first, I stamped the Simon Says Stamp «Lattice Grid» background on a piece of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then I applied several layers of the Distress Oxide Inks «Broken China» and «Cracked Pistachio» – these two colors go so well together!

For my sentiment, I combined the layered SSS «Love» die (cut from navy and white cardstock) with a text from the «More Sketchy Banner Greetings» stamp set that I white heat embossed on vellum. I assembled my card, added a thin strip of navy cardstock and rounded the corners with a punch.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great start into the new week!

DT Stempelgarten Challenge May

05.05.2017

Hi everyone,

TGIF! And that also means that we have a new theme over at the Stempelgarten Challenge – it's an easy one – «Animal Kingdom/Wildlife».

http://stempelgartenchallenge.blogspot.ch/

You just can't go wrong with some adorable My Favorite Things critters. These cuties are from the «Friends Furever» stamp set and I colored them with Copics.

For the fading background, I masked off the bottom of my die-cut square and did some light-handed Ink Blending with MFT Premium Dye Inks («Insulation Pink» and «Lemon Chiffon»). I stamped the sentiment from the same set with VersaFine «Onyx Black» ink. The patterned paper is from the «Dots & Stripes Neutral» 6x6 paper pack. I fussy cut my three animal friends and popped them up with foam tape. To finish my card, I added two little die-cut hearts.

You will have time until May 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 fabulous day!

DT bastel-traum.ch Challenge #52

15.04.2017

Good morning peeps,

we have a new challenge theme over at the bastel-traum.ch Blog – this time we invite you to create something for Mother’s Day or a project for a woman/girl.
http://bastel-traum.blogspot.ch/ 
This challenge will run until May 15th, 8:55 am CET (Central European Time).

I made a Mother's Day card for my mom. She likes owls as much as I do and this cutie is from the My Favorite Things «I’m Owl Yours» stamp set.


I also stamped the branch from the MFT «Harvest Buddies» set and colored both images with my Copics. Since I don’t have the coordinating dies, I did some fussy cutting.

For the watercolor background, I used the brand new Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks «Worn Lipstick» and «Wilted Violet». I love their chalky finish. When everything was completely dry, I heat embossed the sentiment from the MFT «BB Happy Hedgehog» set with «Liquid Platinum» embossing powder by Ranger.

Next, I cut a frame using the largest MFT «Single Stitch Line Rectangle Frame» die. I popped up my colored images with foam tape and added two little die-cut hearts as a finishing touch.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Wishing you a very HAPPY EASTER!

DT Stempelgarten Challenge April

05.04.2017

Hi everyone,

time really flies – so today already starts a new Stempelgarten Challenge with the theme «Colorful Spring».

http://stempelgartenchallenge.blogspot.ch/

I combined two of the sweet Pure Innocence stamp sets by My Favorite Things for my little Copic colored spring scene: «Happy Together» and «Spring Friends».

Next, I created some masks using the MFT «Cloud 9» Die-namics and sponged Simon Says Stamp dye inks (Sea Glass and Maliblue) through the negative cut-outs. I also incorporated some fun and colorful My Favorite Things patterned papers («Sweet Celebrations» and «Dots & Stripes Sorbet» 6x6 paper pack). The stitched inlaid frame was made with «Blueprints 27» (large scalloped die) and «Inside And Out Stitched Rounded Rectangle Stax» Die-namics.

You will have time until April 30th, 2017 to join our challenge and this is the prize you could win:

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!
