DT bastel-traum.ch Challenge #62

15.02.2018

Hi crafty peeps,

we already reached the mid of February – this means we have a new challenge over at the bastel-traum.ch blog for you. The theme is pretty easy and versatile: «Birthday/Party».
http://bastel-traum.blogspot.ch/ 
This challenge will run until March 15th, 8:55 am CET (Central European Time).

Alcohol Inks made a huge comeback these days, so I decided to create a background on Yupo Paper with aqua, blue and green tones. I thought it would be fun to use the Inlaid Die Cutting technique with the Memory Box «Fresh Foliage» die.

The sentiment is from the Winnie & Walter «The Party» stamp set and I heat embossed it with Ranger «Liquid Platinum» powder. I cut a mat from SSS «Fog» cardstock using a MFT «Stitched Rectangle» die. To finish off my card, I adhered «Crystal Rainbow Confetti» from Studio Katia.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Happy Crafting!

DT Stempelgarten Challenge February

05.02.2018

Good morning everyone,

where the heck has the month of January gone?! It's already time for a new Stempelgarten Challenge with the theme «Girly».

http://stempelgartenchallenge.blogspot.ch/

I don't do girly cards that often but I decided to create a card for my sweet little daughter using the adorable princess from the My Favorite Things «Once Upon A Time» set that just looks like her.

I colored the image with Copics and fussy cut her out with my scissors. For the heart in the background, I cut a mask and used the negative part to do some Ink Blending with Distress Oxide Inks («Candied Apple», «Picked Raspberry» and «Wilted Violet»). When it was completely dry, I put the gorgeous Simon Says Stamp «Swirls and Dots» stencil on top and applied a layer of Wendy Vecchi «Translucent» Embossing Paste. I really love the glossy result!

The sentiment is from the same MFT «Once Upon A Time» set and I stamped it in VersaFine «Onyx Black» and covered it with clear embossing powder. I die cut my panel with the largest of the MFT «A2 Stitched Rectangle Set 1» Die-namics and adhered it to a pink card base with a piece of fun foam. I popped up the little princess with foam tape and added some die-cut hearts and sequins to finish off my card.

For my card layout I followed the current MFT Wednesday Sketch #370:

I'm also entering the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday «Anything Goes» Challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge #90 with the theme «Love/Hearts».

DT bastel-traum.ch Challenge #61

15.01.2018

Hi peeps,

today starts a new challenge over at the bastel-traum.ch blog and the theme is «Valentine/Love».
http://bastel-traum.blogspot.ch/ 
This challenge will run until February 15th, 8:55 am CET (Central European Time).

I made this Valentine's card using the adorable otters from the STAMPtember collaboration set «Christmas like no otter» by Lawn Fawn and Simon Says Stamp.

I picked two patterned papers from the «Hello, Love» paper pad by Crate Paper and die cut a heart window out of the light pink one. I used a My Favorite Things stitched rectangle die to cut the paper a bit smaller than the background paper and also added some stitched details with a white gelly roll pen around the heart. Then I adhered it with fun foam for some dimension. The little hearts are from the same otter stamp set.

I kept the card design pretty simple and stamped the sentiment (MFT «More Essential Sentiments») in VersaFine «Onyx Black» and die cut it with one of the MFT «Stitched Sentiment Strips» Die-namics.

I'm joining the latest Lawn Fawnatics challenge with this gorgeous Inspiration Board:


I'm also entering the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge with the theme «Use Patterned Paper».

DT Stempelgarten Challenge January

08.01.2018

Hello everyone,

hopefully, you all had a good start to the new year. Unfortunately, we were sick since Christmas :-(

But today I'm finally back with my belated card for the first Stempelgarten Challenge in 2018. The brand-new theme is «Brrr… Freezing!».

http://stempelgartenchallenge.blogspot.ch/

I picked this cute snowman from the Paper Smooches «Cool Dudes» stamp set and framed him with the beautiful «Frostyville Wreath» by Memory Box.

In the background, I did some faded blending with Distress Oxide Inks and added white paint splatters to mimic little snowflakes. I cut my panel using a My Favorite Things «Stitched Wonky Rectangle» die. Next, I white heat embossed the sentiment from the MFT «Polar Pals» set and cut it with a «Slanted Sentiment Strip» die. Finally, I adhered some matching enamel dots.

You will have time until January 31st, 2017 to join the Stempelgarten Challenge and this is the prize you could win:

DT bastel-traum.ch Christmas Blog Hop

24.12.2017

Good morning peeps,

today I'm joining the special Christmas Blog Hop over at the bastel-traum.ch blog with this simple shaker card:

For the very first time, I made a vibrant background with Tim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol Inks. They are so much fun to play with! I also added a bit of «Silver Metallic Mixative» to the blue tones.

I thought it would create a nice winter night sky inside of a little snow globe scene which I created with dies and a matching shaker pouch by My Favorite Things. I cut the «Our Town» die from grey cardstock and adhered it to my alcohol ink background. Next, I white heat embossed the santa sleigh image from Stampin' Up!. I filled the «Dome» shaker pouch with a variety of sequins and seed beads.

The white cardstock panel was cut with one of the «A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 2» Die-namics. I heat embossed the sentiment from the «Hand Lettered Holiday» set with silver embossing powder by Ranger.

I invite you to hop along with us for some final Christmas inspiration – here is the complete Blog Hop list:

DT bastel-traum.ch Advent Calendar: Day 19

19.12.2017

Hi everyone,

did you know that there's an advent calendar over at the bastel-traum.ch blog? Each day one of the DT girls or a guest opens a door to show you some creative Christmas inspiration.

Today is my turn and I have a trio of quick projects for you which I made with fab products by Alexandra Renke and Nuvo.


For my first card, I die cut two layers of this beautiful sitting angel from white cardstock, stacked the die-cuts, adhered some Nuvo Glue Pen and covered the surface with Nuvo «Sunkissed Copper» Gilding Flakes.

I cut a square piece of patterned paper and heat embossed the sentiment (Renke Stempel «Weihnachtsgrüße deutsch») with WOW! «Metallic Copper» embossing powder on a strip of vellum. Finally, I added some Nuvo «Copper Penny» Crystal Drops.


On the second card, I did some stenciling (Renke Stencil «Sternenregen/Falling Stars») using the smooth and creamy Nuvo «Aquamarine» Embellishment Mousse.

Next, I die cut the angel wings and covered them (with the help of masking) partly with Embellishment Mousse and Gilding Flakes. I also die cut three circles (from carstock, patterned paper and vellum) and layered them on top of each other. Again, I heat embossed the sentiment in copper.


The last of today's projects is this little gift tag.

I used the tag die from the Avery Elle «Postage Stamp» set and stamped the stars and dots (Renke Stempel «Sterne mit Pünktchen») with pigment ink. Once again, I covered my deer die cut with Gilding Flakes – I really love this look! I heat embossed the sentiment onto a die cut banner which I popped up with foam tape. To finish off the tag, I pulled some Natural Jute String through the hole.

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope I was able to inspire you to get some Last-minute Christmas projects done ;-)

DT bastel-traum.ch Challenge #60

15.12.2017

Good morning everyone,

are you busy preparing for Christmas? I definitely am! Today starts a new challenge over at the bastel-traum.ch blog: «Presents/Sugar-sweet» – just perfect to make some little gifts for your loved ones.
http://bastel-traum.blogspot.ch/ 
This challenge will run until January 15th, 8:55 am CET (Central European Time).

I came up with this cute Christmas themed treat box:

Finally, I pulled out the fun Lawn Fawn «Scalloped Treat Box» die. I love how you can turn the box into a little house with the «Scalloped Treat Box Winter Add-On» dies. To decorate it, I used some small images from several stamp sets (puppy: «Let's Play», christmas hat and presents: «Cheerful Christmas», sentiments: «Tiny Tag Sayings»).

I covered the roof die-cut with Nuvo «Moonstone» Glimmer Paste – the sparkle is just amazing! I also added tiny Nuvo «Autumn Red» Crystal Drops to the die-cut wreath. I heat embossed one sentiment directly on the front of the small door and another on the inside (which shows up when you open the door). To put some snow on the die-cut trees, I simply draw some squiggly lines with a VersaMark pen and white heat embossed them.

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