Altenew – Floral Card

Hello friends!

Are you still enjoying summer? I certainly am – although it’s super hot here today!!

Over the weekend I made this card using mainly Altenew products, stenciling and shades of pink & purple:

Besides the pencil coloring it’s a rather quick and clean card and I am really happy with the result.

I hope you like my card, too! Thank you for stopping by! ♥

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! 🙂

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.

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!

Floral Card with WOW Clear Embossing and Studio Katia (Blog Hop & Giveaway)

Hi there! How are you doing today?

Just in case you need some craft inspiration to take your mind off the fact that it’s Monday … 😉 I have a lovely floral card to show you! And it’s part of a collaboration blog hop between WOW Embossing and Studio Katia so there is plenty of wonderful cards along the hop as well as some prizes to win! Isn’t that a great start to this week!

MY FLORAL CARD WITH NO LINE COLORING

I have a floral card for you that I made with one of the beauuutiful flower images from Studio Katia’s “You’re So Sweet” stamp set. They seemed perfect for coloring with colored pencils and that is what I did – using a no line coloring method. I stamped the image with a very light dye ink that isn’t visible anymore now that I added my coloring.

Studio Katia You're So Sweet Floral Card 1

I used a mixture of Caran d’Ache – Luminance Pencils and Chameleon – Color Tones Pencils. The brands are a bit different to work with and also when it comes to their prize point but I honestly like them both! You can get great results with both kind of pencils, I think!

For my background I stamped the Studio Katia “Mandala Flower” in a light mint ink and used the same ink for ink blending from the bottom of my panel. I added splatters with green ink to match the leaves from my flower image. A few of the gorgeous blue crystal embellishments picked up the color of my blossom coloring.

HEAT EMBOSSING IN CLEAR

While I chose a simple black color for my sentiment (to add a bit of contrast to the background) I heat embossed it with WOW clear embossing powder. I really find that using that glossy embossing powder on a sentiment adds just that bit of extra to a card design! Black embossing powder can get a bit messy but by choosing a black pigment ink like Versafine and WOW’s “Clear Gloss Super Fine” embossing powder I got a perfectly embossed sentiment. Here’s a close-up look of the card:
