Stampin' Up! Diamond Wedding Anniversary


Hi peeps,

I really should be working on Christmas stuff, but made this little commission card for a Diamond Wedding Anniversary – that means 60 incredible years of marriage!

I used the gorgeous Stampin' Up! «Eclectic Layers» Thinlits dies and some My Favorite Things «Watercolor Wash» patterned papers. I die cut the diamond outline from golden glitter cardstock and stamped the cross design in Tsukineko Delicata «Golden Glitz»ink. The German sentiment (SU «Grußelemente») reads «Congrats» and I white heat embossed it on a small banner. To finish off my card, I adhered a couple of pretty Studio Katia «Iridescent Clear Crystals».

Thank you so much for stopping by!

DT Challenge #59


Hello everyone,

today we have a brandnew challenge theme over at the blog – «Winter/Christmas/Starshine». 
This challenge will run until December 15th, 8:55 am CET (Central European Time).

For my holiday card, I created a cute scene using the adorable critters from the Mama Elephant «Whimsical Winter» set.

I had so much fun stamping, Copic coloring and fussy cutting all the images! For my snowfall background, I combined some white splatters and Distress Inks («Broken China», «Tumbled Glass» and «Milled Lavender») which I blended together on a piece of Bristol cardstock. I also added three little die-cut hearts and some random Nuvo «White Blizzard» Glitter Drops which you unfortunately can't see on the photo.

To create the snow hills, I used two of the stitched Mama Elephant «Landscape Trio» dies and cut them from white cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the «Merry Greetings» set on the front snowhill and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder. For some dimension, I popped it up with foam tape. Finally, I adhered all the stamped images to finish off my winter scene.

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

DT Stempelgarten Challenge November


Hi everyone,

on Sunday started the latest Stempelgarten Challenge with the theme «Christmas is coming».

A bit later than usual, I'm showing you my very first Christmas card for this year. I've chosen the adorable puppy from the My Favortite Things Birdie Brown «Happy Pawlidays» stamp set and colored him with Copics.

Sometimes I struggle with my mojo, so I'm very thankful for the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge ;-)

I'm entering the current challenge #357 – this inspiring sketch really helped me to create my card layout:

For the background panel, I used the Taylored Expressions «Cable Knit» embossing folder to add some texture to the white cardstock. I hand cut the fishtail banner from polka dotted paper (MFT «Dots & Stripes Neutral» 6x6 Paper Pack». Next, I die cut one of the «Single Stitch Line Square Frames» from red glitter cardstock and put a piece of patterned paper (MFT «Tranquil Textures» 6x6 Paper Pack) behind it.

I white heat embossed one of the «Snow Globe Sentiments» on black cardstock and used the «Stitched Sentiment Strips» Die-namics to cut it out. I adhered all the elements by mostly following the sketch and popped up the dog and sentiment banner with foam tape. To finish my card, I added three wood veneer stars by Studio Calico.

You will have time until November 30th, 2017 to join the Stempelgarten Challenge and this is the prize you could win:

A craft package from the Stempelgarten Online Shop with a value of CHF 20.–.
