DT bastel-traum.ch Challenge #49


Hi everyone,

today starts a new bastel-traum.ch Challenge and this time it's all about «Friends» :-)
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


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».


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!
