DT Stempelgarten Challenge February


Good morning peeps,

it's time for a new Stempelgarten Challenge and this month's theme is «Hearts».


I made this love-themed card with one of the most adorable sheeps from the Birdie Brown «Ewe Are The Best» stamp set by My Favorite Things.

I immediately fell in love with this cute little fellow which I colored with Copics. Then I fussy cut him out.

For the background I did some Ink Blending using Distress Inks («Abandoned Coral», «Worn Lipstick» and Picked Raspberry) Obviously, I'm still in the pink mood ;-) The handwritten sentiment is from the MFT «True Friends» set and I stamped it in VersaFine «Onyx Black» and heat embossed it in clear. I cut my panel using a Simon Says Stamp «Stitched Rectangle» die and adhered it to my white top folding card base.

I die-cut two small hearts (Mama Elephant «Confetti» die) from black cardstock which I covered with Glossy Accents. I also added a coat of clear Wink of Stella Brush Pen glitter to the sheep's heart.

You will have time until February 29th, 2016 to join our challenge and this is the prize you could win:

A craft package from the Stempelgarten Online Shop with a value of CHF 20.–.

I'm entering my card to the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – Have A Heart

Happy Monday everyone,

This is the fabulous new inspiration photo for this month:

And here is my take with a masculine Birthday card:

I created my own geometric pattern with a solid triangle stamp from the Altenew «Solid Shapes» stamp set. I also used their Crisp Dye Inks because I really love the colors and how well they stamp! The birthday sentiment is from the «Label Love» set, also by Altenew.

You can enter your project(s) until Thursday, February 25th at 11:55pm EST. This month's lucky winner will receive a $20 gift card to Butterfly Reflections, Ink.

DT Make it Crafty CAS Inspiration | Love Bunnies


Hi everyone,

popping in today to show you a new CAS inspiration card for Make it Crafty.

Aren't these bunnies from the new All About Love Elements Chipboard set just the cutest?! I combined them with a simple watercolor background which I created with some pinkish Distress Inks («Spun Sugar», «Worn Lipstick», «Picked Raspberry» and «Abandoned Coral»).

The little heart is from another fabulous chipboard set (Outlined Words With Love) and I covered it with red embossing powder. I white heat embossed the sentiment from the Mama Elephant «So Breezy» set. I cut my panel using the largest «Wonky Stitched Rectangle» die by My Favorite Things and adhered it to a Kraft card base.

This quick and easy card would be perfect for the upcoming Valentine's Day.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend!

DT Make it Crafty CAS Challenge #9 | Squee!


Hello everyone,

today I'm sharing my card for the current Make it Crafty Clean and Simple Challenge with the theme «No Images».

We all love to color the fabulous images that Make it Crafty carries but there are also some fun chipboards in the store.

I've chosen the «Squee!» from the Grunge Words set. For the background I did some loose Ink Smooshing with Distress Inks in the colors «Cracked Pistachio», «Peacock Feathers» and «Blueprint Sketch».

To complete my sentiment I white heat embossed the «It's Your Birthday!» text from the Simon Says Stamp «Happy and Smile» stamp set on a thin strip of black cardstock. I finished off my card by adhering enamel dots and shapes.

You still have time to enter this challenge by the end of the month. You can find all the details HERE.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

DT bastel-traum.ch Challenge #37


Good morning peeps,
we have a new theme for the bastel-traum.ch Challenge that starts today – it is «Valentine». 
This challenge will run until February 15th, 8:55 am CET (Central European Time).

I made this colorful Valentine's Day card. Although the warm colors aren't typical for winter or snowmen – to me they are just perfect for anything love related.

I stamped, die-cut and masked off one of the Lawn Fawn «Frilly Frames» and arranged this adorable snowman couple from the «Ready, Set, Snow» stamp set. I colored my cute little scene with Copics

The watercolor background in these vibrant and warm colors was made with three Distress Inks: «Abandoned Coral», «Picked Raspberry» and «Seedless Preserves». I also added some water droplets to create a bit of texture and interest.

When everything was completely dry I stamped the sentiment from the LF «Snow Day» set and heat embossed it in white. I adhered the frame and the watercolor panel with foam tape and added a small die-cut heart which I covered in Glossy Accents.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

DT Stempelgarten Challenge January


Good morning everyone,

it's time for the very first Stempelgarten Challenge of the new year. This month's theme is «Winter Wonderland».


I created a card with the super cute penguin from the My Favorite Things «Toasty Greetings» stamp set.

I went with non-traditional winter colors as I picked this fun polka dot paper from Fancy Pants. I die-cut the patterned paper with the largest stitched rectangle from Simon Says Stamp which happens to be my most often used die lately ;-) I also cut a circle window with the MFT «Jumbo Peek-a-Boo» die.

For the background I softly blended some light pink SSS «Cotton Candy» ink and created a little snow bank with one of the MFT «Stitched Basic Edges» Die-namics. I covered the hill with Distress «Clear Rock Candy» Glitter from Ranger.

The little penguin was colored with Copics and I fussy cut him. On a slim strip of dark brown cardstock I heat embossed the sentiment in white. Finally, I assembled my card and used foam tape for more dimension.

You will have time until January 31st, 2016 to join our challenge and this is the prize you could win:

A craft package from the Stempelgarten Online Shop with a value of CHF 20.–.

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