DT bastel-traum.ch Challenge #64


Good morning crafty friends,

Spring is finally here and there's a new theme over at the bastel-traum.ch blog: «Flowers/Mother's Day».
This challenge will run until May 15th, 8:55 am CET (Central European Time).

I created this floral Mother's Day card for my mom using the gorgeous WPlus9 «Kind Soul» stamp.

I watercolored these beautiful flowers with my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens and fussy cut them out leaving a small white border. Next, I adhered them to a light pink top-folding card base on which I gold heat embossed the sentiment from the Clearly Besotted Stamps «Fresh Flowers» set. I kept the card simple and only added some Nuvo Jewel Drops.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a beautiful Sunday!

Stampin' Up! Party Panda Birthday Card


Good morning everyone,

I really enjoy playing with stencils and inks lately – so I recreated a card that I made a couple of weeks ago. It uses the same layout and starburst stencil by Florilèges («Etoile Rayonnante»). This time I chose the following Distress Oxides: Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron and Peacock Feathers.

This cute little guy is from the Stampin' Up! «Party-Pandas» stamp set (SAB 2018). I colored the balloon with Copics and covered it with Glossy Accents. I fussy cut the image and popped it up with foam tape. The birthday sentiment is from the My Favorite Things «Meant To Bee» set and I stamped it in VersaFine «Onyx Black». Finally, I added some die-cut stars.

Once again, I'm joining the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge with the theme «Happy Birthday».

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

Stenciled Masculine Birthday Card


Hi peeps,

most of the time, I find it more difficult to create masculine cards. But the fun Altenew «Cube Builder» stencil and the cool «Birthday Palooza» stamp set by CZ Design for Simon Says Stamp really did the trick.

The «Sweet Dreams» inks I used for the stenciling are also by Altenew. I love that there are four shades of one color in one mini ink cube set. This really takes the guesswork out of choosing the right colors. I white heat embossed the sentiment on MFT «Steel Grey» cardstock.

Although this card is actually supposed to be for a man, I added a little bit of bling by adhering three Pretty Pink Posh «Sea Glass» jewels.

I'm entering the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge with the theme «Happy Birthday». Congratulations on celebrating your 9th birthday and thanks for the chance to win one of nine 50$ Gift Vouchers!

Thank you so much for stopping by! See you tomorrow :-)

DT Stempelgarten Challenge April


Hello everyone,

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter. We enjoyed some precious family time and finally warmer temperatures outside. Which brings me to our new Stempelgarten Challenge with the theme «Spring».


I made this CAS card with some of my beloved My Favorite Things products. The chick and the bunny are from the «Hoppy Friends» set – I really like the smaller stamp sets that MFT  is releasing lately.

I colored these cuties with Copics and fussy cut them out with scissors. For my background, I masked off a rectangle and did some blending with Distress Inks. The sky was made with the help of the «Cloud» stencil. I stamped the sentiment from the «Handwritten Happiness» set directly on top using VersaFine «Onyx Black» ink.

You will have time until April 30th, 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.–.
