DT Make it Crafty CAS Inspiration | Hello Beautiful


Hi everyone,

have you seen all the fun chipboards in the Make it Crafty Store? I’ve chosen one of the new single words which are available in different sizes.

Here is the Clean and Simple card which I made with the Hello Brush Script Word Chipboard (2 inches):

I heat embossed the word in white and the 'backing layer' (which helps the word to pop) in black. Then I glued both pieces together with Ranger's «Multi Medium Matte». For the background I used the retired My Favorite Things «Stripes Cover-Up» die. I also die-cut a flower and some leaves with the beautiful Florilèges «Nature Fine» dies.

With Fall just around the corner, I tried a new more muted color combo with the Stampin' Up! cardstocks I’ve chosen. Finally, I assembled my card, stamped a WPlus9 sentiment (from the «Hand Lettered Hello» stamp set) right below the chipboard word and added some matching enamel dots.

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


DT bastel-traum.ch Challenge #44


Hello everyone,

today starts the new bastel-traum.ch Challenge with the theme «Mask/Stencil/Die Cutting».
This challenge will run until September 15th, 8:55 am CET (Central European Time).

Here's the CAS card that I made:

At first, I die-cut a butterfly shape from Inkadinkado masking paper using one of the Stampin' Up! «Butterflies Thinlits». I adhered the negative piece onto some white cardstock. I softly sponged Simon Says Stamp «Maliblue» ink through the cut out of the masking paper. Then I placed the Hero Arts «Leaf & Flourish» stencil on top and secured it with washi tape. I took the darker SSS «Audrey Blue» ink to stencil the pattern onto the butterfly. I really liked the crisp result which has been revealed after removing the masking paper.

I cut my panel with the largest My Favorite Things «Inside Out Diagonal Stitched Square Stax» Die-namics and adhered it to my card base made from SU «Pool Party» cardstock. Then I die-cut the gorgeous Hero Arts «hello» once from silver glitter paper and two times from white cardstock. I stacked the word die-cuts together and adhered them over my stenciled butterfly. To finish my card I added some rhinestones and sparkling clear sequins.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

DT Stempelgarten Challenge August


Good morning everyone,

today starts the new Stempelgarten Challenge with the theme «Flowers/Plants».


I created a square card using the adorable Birdie Brown «You Gnome Me» stamp set and some other fun products from My Favorite Things.

This is the second time that I colored with my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens. I love how easy they blend but I'm still hesitating to use them more loosely for a real watercolor look. I fussy cut all the images and added some white dots with a gelly roll pen. Then I cut a little pot for the flower arrangement with the «Perfect Planters» Die-namics from a piece of wood veneer paper.

The background was made with the «English Brick Wall» stencil and Simon Says Stamp «Fog» ink which is such a nice light grey. I quickly colored a strip of watercolor paper in green, let it dry and cut it with a «Grassy Edges» die. The birthday sentiment is from the «Adorable Elephants» set and I heat embossed it in white on black cardstock which I cut into a banner shape.

Finally, I assembled my little scene. I popped up the colored images with foam tape for more dimension and adhered some enamel stickers from Create A Smile.

You will have time until August 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.–.

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