Floral Fantasy Card for Bastel-Traum’s Challenge

Hi guys!

Today I am excited to be a Guest Designer for Bastel-Traum’s Challenge! They have a monthly card challenge that I have participated in several times. Then I was the lucky “Gold Award” winner of their November 2018 Challenge entering this Christmas card. Yay!! So here I am guesting for their new challenge – which is a color challenge.

My card features Altenew’s “Floral Fantasy” stamp set, an Altenew label sentiment saying “Let’s celebrate you” in German and one of their beautiful stencils with geometric shapes. I did layered stamping with different inks and some heat embossing for my top layer. I used a mask to place one flower behind the other and for the stenciling that I did afterwards. Scroll down to the supply list if you’re interested to know what products and ink colors I have used!

HERE’S MY FLORAL FANTASY CARD:

COLOR INSPIRATION FROM BASTEL-TRAUM:

Isn’t this gorgeous?!! Although there are flowers in the inspiration picture, I also thought about making a wintery critter card … but ultimately I ended up wanting to use the Altenew flowers again. Maybe I will still make a critter card with those yummy colors!

I can’t wait to see what you will come up with for Bastel-Traum’s challenge. πŸ™‚ If you like card challenges as much as I do you might also want to take a look at my challenge page (consider yourself warned that it is long list! :D).

Thank you for stopping by today! β™₯

4 Cards With Blue Backgrounds

Hello and happy Sunday!

It’s all grey and rainy here today … Which makes it a perfect day for crafting and blogging! πŸ˜€

I made a couple of cards over the last days and it turned out they all have dark blue on the backgrounds! It wasn’t planned – I guess I just felt like using blue. Two cards mimic a blue background as water, the other two use blue to create a wintery wood scene.

Fly with Me Card for Challenge Up Your Life

Hello and happy weekend, everyone!

I am excited to be a Guest Designer for Challenge Up Your Life (CUYL) today with a “Fly with me” card featuring Mama Elephant stamps! πŸ™‚

Challenge Up Your Life is a great bi-weekly papercrafting challenge blog that is run by a couple of German-speaking crafters (but no worries, they always translate their theme and rules into English). They always have beautiful projects for you to get inspired by!

Theme #105 is:

“Love Is In The Air” / “Liebe liegt in der Luft”

At this time of year with Valentine’s Day coming up very soon I initially thought of a cute, maybe pink card design. BUT … I really was in the mood for some turquoise, which is my favorite color. And I also like more unconventional love-themed cards. So I ended up focusing on the “In the air” part of the theme by choosing the adorable elephant (and birdie) image from Mama Elephant’s “Fly With Me” stamp set and went with a “Lots of Love” sentiment. For the colors, I chose turquoise, yellow – and grey for the elephant.

TAKE A LOOK:

With the photo editing some of the pencil coloring on the elephant got lost, so I took another photo of that where the depth is a little more visible.

FLYING ELEPHANT CLOSE-UP:

I hope you like my card! And that you will hop over to Challenge Up Your Life to see what the Design Team girls came up with.

I am gonna be back later today with another exciting post, so stay tuned. Hugs!
