Get well soon | Clearly Besotted

Hello everyone! Another dailymarker30day challenge started and I picked the prismacolor pencils for my first project during the challenge.


I used the sweet stamps from 'under the weather' from Cleary Besotted and stamped them onto white cardstock. After coloring the images I diecut the pieces with Lawn Fawn 'fancy scalloped circle stackables' and colored them as little flowers.



I created a quick watercolor background with dried marigold and wild honey distress ink. I added the flowers with foam tape and drew some stems.



I added a sentiment from a retired Clearly Besotted stamp set (Brushed greetings) and chose a metallic green card base.

I wish you a beautiful day!

You are the Sweetest | Lawn Fawn

Hello everyone! Welcome to 2018 and my first blog post here in 2018 :)

Although I don't buy that many Lawn Fawn stamp sets as before I couldn't pass the new 'sweet friend' set. I think this set is soo much fun, especially the hands and legs you can diecut for the deserts too. 
I startet by inking up a strip of watercolor paper with colorful distress inks. I used squeezed lemonade, dried marigold, tattered rose, spun sugar, milled lavender and tumbled glass. I also sprinkled some waterdroplets.

Then I stamped all the sweet images with Memento tuxedo black and colored them in with Copics. I prepared two withe strips of cardstock and adhered them to black fun foam. Then I added the sentiment and some sprinkles. For the sprinkles I used the Lawn Fawn dye inks sunflower, ballet slipper and moonstone. For the sentiment I used black licorice. 

I adhered the paper with the black fun foam and all the images and decided to add another sentiment so that I can use it as a birthday card. I went with the birthday sentiment from the 'bake me a cake' stamp set from Lawn Fawn.

Because the stamp set was perfect for the lawn fawnatics challenge 20 I enter this card for a chance to win :)

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a sweet day!

Unicorn light up card | Mama Elephant

Hello everyone! Thank you for joining me! I made a break from making Christmas cards and created this light up unicorn card :)



I started with the distress ink background using the MFT cloud and mini cloud stencils. I chose pastel colors (scattered straw, dried marigold, milled lavender, spun sugar). 
With the rainbow from 'rainbow high' I diecut paper which I colored in with distress inks.

I also diecut some clouds from glitter paper. The images from 'unicorns and rainbow' are colored in with Copics.

After adhering everything to the background I pierced a small whole behind the candle of the cake and started with the ligth effect.


I chose a pale pink glitter cardbase and adhered a small paper piece behind the future cake. Behind the candle I started adhering the copper tape. One for the plus and one for the minus side of the battery/light. After bringing all into place I used 3 layers of foam tape to adhere the unicorn/rainbow scene to the cardbase.


I hope you like the design and have  a wonderful day!

Christmas Card No. 8 | Mama Elephant

Hi everyone! I am back with my 8th Christmas card design :) Again I used Mama Elephant stamps and dies.




First I created the background scene. I used patterned paper for the wall and diecut the 'window watching' die from Mama Elephant out of it. I also used the same die for the frame (cardstock which I colored in with my ink blending tool and walnut stain distress ink) and the sky (cardstock which I colored in with my ink blending tool and tumbled glass/salty ocean distress ink).


I blended some more walnut stain distress ink on a craft card base as my floor. Then I glued the pieces together and started with the images.
I used the three stamp sets: 'a beary Christmas', 'merry mantle' and 'pix's happy holiday'. After stamping them with Memento tuxedo black I colored them in with Copic markers.


I adhered them to the scene and added some highlights with the wink of Stella brush pen. For the sentiments I used German Christmas greetings.

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!
