Hello baby | Mama Elephant

Hello everyone! I share my last blog post for 2018 with you today! Yeah - only a few hours until 2019! I wish you all the best for the new year! 

Due to my very empty stash of baby cards I decided to make two at once. For a girl and a boy. Since these two cards are exactly the same (except for the colors and images) I only describe the girly one. In the photostory at my Instagram account you will see both processes.

I started by diecutting the 'circular grid' and largest one of the 'basic rectangles' dies from white cardstock. I used the basic rectangles for a base - so that it has the exact same size as the circular grid diecut and I could layer them. 

Then I drew fine pencil lines on the diecut background cardstock and chose different distress oxide ink colors in pink. I blended the colors with a faded effect. Then I adhered the circular grid diecut on top of the background.

The sweet bunnies from 'little bunny agenda' are stamped with Memento tuxedo black and colored in with Copic markers. I diecut all of them and adhered them onto the circular grid.

I added the tiny sentiment from 'mini messages' in the middle and last but not least I used the Nuvo jewel drops in rosewater for more details.


For the male version I went with a green color scheme and the 'little monkey agenda' stamps.

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great start into 2019!

Modern Thank you Cards | My favorite things

Hi everyone! I am on the Stempelwunderwelt-Blog again, sharing two modern, elegant thank you cards with the Nuvo expanding mousse from Tonic Studios. For me the style is out of my comfort zone but nevertheless, I hope you like the designs.

You can find an English Version at the end of the German blog post (just scroll down) here.

Here is a short photo story showing the cards:


Believe | Mama Elephant

Hello everyone! I think 'Me and my dragon' together with 'Dragon Wishes' are my favorite stamp sets this year. So I decided to create another Game-of-Thrones themed encouragement card. 

I started with the background by diecutting a piece of watercolor cardstock with the 'basic rectangles' die set. Then I used the 'kingdom trio' set to create DIY stencils. With these stencils and distress inks the background was made.

Beside the two favorite stamp sets I also used 'Lil'painters' and 'Merry mantle' for this card. All the images were stamped with Memento tuxedo black and colored in with Copic markers. Fortunately I had all the dies for the images.

After that it was time for the 'flip slider' set. I diecut it from grey/white cardstock and created some small backgrounds on the white cardstocks with again distress inks and also a stencil from Tim Holtz. Then I adhered my images onto the slider parts and assembled the slider mechanism.

I wanted to create a scene where you first see Daenerys at the beginning with the Dothraki outfit where she dreams of an own castle and soldiers. Then she has the three eggs - went into the fire and finally has three dragons (I could only fit one of them onto the slider piece).

I set it aside and went on with the background. I decided on the sentiment and stamped two larger dragons from the me and my dragon set with antique linen distress inks directly onto the background. With the same distress inks I added some soft coloring to the images. 

Last but not least I chose a grey cardbase and adhered the card and flip slider onto the base.

And here is a short clip about how the slider mechanism works once it's finished:

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