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!! 🙂

HERE’S MY ADVENT CALENDAR!

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! ♥

MFT Stamps – Halloween Box Card

Hello!

Do you celebrate Halloween? I actually don’t but when it comes to Halloween stamps, especially the cute kind, I am all in! 🙂

I recently bought the new “Outside The Box” dies and “Snow Drifts” add-on by My Favorite Things and startet using it right away! So here is the interactive box card I made! I also used the critters from the MFT Stamps “Frightfully Sweet” stamp set and the moon from “Space Explorer” as well as their “Our Town” border die for the background.

MY HALLOWEEN BOX CARD:

The polka dot paper is from my stash – as I went with a typical Halloween color scheme I picked it out for my card … I also used Distress Oxide Ink to give the town border a similar color.

With this card I would like to participate in these challenges:

MFT Stamps – Happy Camper 2 Ways (Guest Post)

Hi everyone!

I hope your week is off to a good start! Today I wanted to drop in again and say hi to my blog readers and show them two cards I made featuring one of the last Stacey Yacula sets for MFT Stamps! It’s called “Happy Camper” and once again it is so cute!

I made both cards for The Foiled Fox and you’ll find more detailed info about them on their blog!

Here’s a short overview for my owl card:

I ink blended a panel with Oxide Inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn and Pine Needles. I then cut it down to 2 7/8 by 4 1/8 and matted it with a slightly bigger black panel.

TIPPS & TRICKS: For the no line coloring I used a light grey dye ink, watercolour markers and added a few details to the owl with colored pencils.

The matching sentiment is heat embossed in white.

OWL CARD:

  • Winsor & Newton – Watercolour Markers
  • Strathmore – Bristol Smooth Paper Pad
  • Neenah – Solar White 110 lb for the cardbase

The second card was already made in September so if you follow me on Instagram you might have already seen it. 🙂 The Happy Campers enjoy themselves sitting by a bonfire, playing the guitar and roasting marshmallows! So cozy!

TIPPS & TRICKS: The main panel is cut from Bristol paper. For the sky, I faded out a pink watercolor marker in one direction and dark blue marker from the top (other direction).
