Hello Bluebird • Holiday Flurries • Merry Christmas

19.09.2018

Hello everyone,

although it's still summery in my area, I created this year's very first Christmas card using the gorgeous Hello Bluebird Holiday Flurries stamp set.

First, I stamped the large sentiment in the middle of a Distress Watercolor Cardstock panel and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder. Next, I stamped and white heat embossed several snowflakes to frame the sentiment.

Now we come to the fun part – taking advantage of the embossing which will resist the color you put on top – I sprinkled on Nuvo Shimmer Powder in the pretty color «Blue Blitz». I heavily spritzed my panel with water to get the pigments moving. Finally, I embellished the card with «Ice Cube Mix» Jewels by Little Things from Lucy's Cards.

MFT 2018 Card Design Superstar Contest

17.09.2018

Hi peeps,

live has been busy, but I'm glad I managed to create a card for the amazing 2018 Card Design Superstar Contest hosted by My Favorite Things.

https://www.mftstamps.com/blog/2018-card-design-superstar/

I'm entering the Clean & Simple Genius Category with this pastel Birthday card using the cute elephant from the Safari Friends set and the Basic Shapes – Triangles stencil.

I picked three MFT Premium Dye Inks (Bubblegum, Summer Splash, Grout Gray) and sponged them through the different sized triangles to build my geometric background. I cut the panel with the largest A2 Stitched Regtangle STAX Set 1 Die-namics.

I heat embossed the sentiment with «Liquid Platinum» embossing powder and popped up the elephant with foam tape. To finish off my card, I adhered three Tiny Hearts Shape Sprinkles by Doodlebug.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Keeping my fingers and toes crossed ;-)

Hello Bluebird • Halloween Party • Trick or Treat

15.09.2018

Hello again,

I want to show you a new Halloween card that I created with the cute Hello Bluebird Halloween Party stamps.

First, I masked off about 2 inch and did some ink blending with Distress Oxide Inks (Wilted Violet, Shaded Lilac, Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn). I added water droplets to lift the color.

Next, I stamped the images and colored them with my Copics (the cloud is from the Fall Friends stamp set). I used the companion dies to cut them out. I vertically stamped the sentiment from the Spooky Script set in black.

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

DT bastel-traum.ch Challenge #69

Good morning everyone,

summer is almost over but this didn't stop me from creating another colorful summery card for the new challenge over at the bastel-traum.ch blog with the theme «Travel/Vacation».
http://bastel-traum.blogspot.ch/ 
This challenge will run until October 15th, 8:55 am CET (Central European Time).

I immediately fell in love with this fun Stamping Bella «Rosie and Bernie in Hawaii» image which I colored with Altenew Watercolors. Next, I stamped the sentiment from the My Favorite Things «BB Penguins in Paradise» set in black.

I used a MFT stitched rectangle die to cut my panel out and popped it up with fun foam. The gorgeous rainbow paper is by Lawn Fawn. I finished off my card with Little Things from Lucy's Cards «Rainbow Sparkle Mix» Jewels.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Hello Bluebird • Fall Friends • Thanks For Everything

04.09.2018

Hello everyone,

today I'm back with another card using the adorable Fall Friends set from the Hello Bluebird August Release.

This time, I did some coloring with my new Altenew Watercolors. They are awesome and I love their vibrancy! I white heat embossed the fabulous Blowing Leaves Background on Kraft cardstock. Next, I die cut the stitched frame (Gallery Frame Die #1 set) from Aqua cardstock and adhered it to my embossed background.

The word die «thanks» is from the Gallery Frame Die #2 set and I stacked three layers (one in orange, two in black) on top of each other. I slightly shifted the orange die-cut to create a shadow. The images and panel were adhered with foam tape. I white heat embossed the sentiment on a strip of black cardstock and added some enamel dots to finish off the card.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Simon Says Stamp Beautiful Flowers Happy Wedding

24.08.2018

Happy Friday everyone,

hubby needed a wedding card for a co-worker and I was glad to finally get to play with the amazing Simon Says Stamp «Beautiful Flowers» stamp set.

This gorgeous floral cluster is huge and I stamped it in VersaMark on «Petal Pink» cardstock by Stampin' Up! and heat embossed it in white. For the first time, I tried some coloring with Polychromos pencils (I only own 3 so far). I wanted to keep it soft and monochrome, so I only added shadows and minimal highlights.

The scripty sentiment is from the «Vintage Roses» set by Altenew and I heat embossed it with Ranger «Liquid Platinum» embossing powder. I matted the panel onto SU «Gray Granite» cardstock and used the same light pink cardstock for my card base. To embellish the card, I adhered «Ice Cube Jewels» by Little Things from Lucy's Cards.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
