DT bastel-traum.ch Challenge #50


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»
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


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».


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!
