Mini Advent Calendar 2020 (Blog Hop)

Hello friends!

Today I am happy to be part of a little blog hop! A couple of German crafters have been doing a “Secret Santa” swap of mini advent calendars and today we are all gonna show you what we made! A big thank you to Birka for organizing this again!! 🙂

If you are hopping along, you should be arriving from Janine aka Ellabella. She made such a cute advent calendar for me with Mama Elephant stamps!! I was very happy when I got it and it arrived super early so I have been enjoying it for a couple of weeks already!  ❤

AND the kittens have mostly left it alone (they usual chew on everything), so yay! 😉

For the calendar that I made I chose a BUNCH of Lawn Fawn critters and dies as well as “Layered Snowflakes” Die-namics from MFT Stamps. If you place all 6 boxes next to each other you kind of get a continuous scene. I got to send my calendar to Katrin (your next stop!) and I really hope she likes it!! 🙂

I also made a matching card to go along with my advent calendar which I have already posted here! I used the same color scheme as for the mini calendar. Since Katrin and I both own cats I knew I wanted to send her something kitten-related. 😀

Here’s the full hop list again:

Have an amazing Sunday! ♥

It’s my first year joining this fun hop and it’s also my first year having two cats as family members! In June, we took two foster kitten in and they won our hearts in no time so they are staying for good and will be loved to pieces. 🙂

Here’s my card that I made for the hop! I discovered that I do not own nearly enough cat stamps yet, I definitely will have to change that! 😀

Altenew – Rose Flurries in Autumn Colors

Hello friends!

Today I finished this card using Altenew stamps, dies and stencil. I was looking at this month’s Altenew Inspiration Challenge hosted by the lovely Virginia Lu and really wanted to join although it was a challenge for me indeed! 😀 Muted greens and oranges are usually not my go-to colors but I added a bit of yellow as well (like Virginia did in her card example) and after thinking about a few different designs I am very happy with what I came up with in the end! And I used my Rose Flurries 3D die set again, which I haven’t used nearly enough! 🙂

Here’s my finished roses card:

Altenew Rose Flurries

I started by using the Dalia Stencil A and stenciling some yellow ink onto the card base as well as adding a couple of green splatters. Then I arranged all of my die-cut and glued-together roses and leaves on top. The layering die set gives a great 3D look itself but I enhanced the dimensional effect by

1) Using foam tape between the first and second layers of each rose!

2) Adhering some of the blossoms and leaves with foam tape to the card base as well while gluing other ones directly to the card base.

3) Bending up the outer parts of leaves and petals a little bit with my bone folder.

Look at the dimension up close:

I hope you like today’s card. Have an amazing weekend!
