DT bastel-traum.ch Challenge #61


Hi peeps,

today starts a new challenge over at the bastel-traum.ch blog and the theme is «Valentine/Love».
This challenge will run until February 15th, 8:55 am CET (Central European Time).

I made this Valentine's card using the adorable otters from the STAMPtember collaboration set «Christmas like no otter» by Lawn Fawn and Simon Says Stamp.

I picked two patterned papers from the «Hello, Love» paper pad by Crate Paper and die cut a heart window out of the light pink one. I used a My Favorite Things stitched rectangle die to cut the paper a bit smaller than the background paper and also added some stitched details with a white gelly roll pen around the heart. Then I adhered it with fun foam for some dimension. The little hearts are from the same otter stamp set.

I kept the card design pretty simple and stamped the sentiment (MFT «More Essential Sentiments») in VersaFine «Onyx Black» and die cut it with one of the MFT «Stitched Sentiment Strips» Die-namics.

I'm joining the latest Lawn Fawnatics challenge with this gorgeous Inspiration Board:

I'm also entering the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge with the theme «Use Patterned Paper».

Thank you so much for stopping by!

DT Stempelgarten Challenge January


Hello everyone,

hopefully, you all had a good start to the new year. Unfortunately, we were sick since Christmas :-(

But today I'm finally back with my belated card for the first Stempelgarten Challenge in 2018. The brand-new theme is «Brrr… Freezing!».


I picked this cute snowman from the Paper Smooches «Cool Dudes» stamp set and framed him with the beautiful «Frostyville Wreath» by Memory Box.

In the background, I did some faded blending with Distress Oxide Inks and added white paint splatters to mimic little snowflakes. I cut my panel using a My Favorite Things «Stitched Wonky Rectangle» die. Next, I white heat embossed the sentiment from the MFT «Polar Pals» set and cut it with a «Slanted Sentiment Strip» die. Finally, I adhered some matching enamel dots.

You will have time until January 31st, 2018 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.–.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
