Basteltraum's Challenge #75: Easter/Spring

Wohooo! Spring is almost here!!!

And so we dedicated our current Bastel-Traum's challenge to everything spring and/or Easter related :-)

I created a pop-up box card and decorated the outside with an allover stamping design. All stamps are from Lawn Fawn's latest release and this set is called "Butterfly Kisses". Isn't it adorable?!

For the middle parts, I used two dies from two other brandnew sets which are actually add-ons for the shadow box die set. I realized that the width of the grass border and the flower border is the exact same as the pop up box! Lawn Fawn is always creating so cleverly their dies! You can mix and match between the sets, that is simply genius!

for decorating the front panels, I used some blue cardstock from Lawn Fawn's "watercolor wishes petite paper pack" . The cloudy background is sponged with blue dye ink and a finger dauber. All stamped images are colored with my Copic markers, also the garland. I simply wrote the name of the newborn boy with acrylic paint over it and outlined them with a black fineliner pen.

And as this card was ordered by a company, I created a bigger card and popped the pop up box card with a paper bandage on it. This way, everyone in the company was able to sign the card :-) I also created a little pouch for the money they collected in the company.

I hope you got inspired and give this round a try at Bastel-Traum's blog! See ya there!

Basteltraum's Challenge #74 Color Combo

Hello, crafty friends!

Are you ready for spring, too? Well, I am! I really am. I miss the beautiful colors of flowers and all the greenery... so that's why I have made a very spring like card as an inspiration for the latest challenge over on Basteltraum's blog. Theme this time is simply a color combo. At the very bottom of this post you will find it :-)

So let's see what I did... the cherry blossom branch is a complete die and I diecut it from plain white watercolor cardstock and colored everything with my regular watercolors in halfpans (I used the ones from Pébéo this time). The MEGA friend die is cut 4 times and stacked on top of each other. This way, you can achieve a gorgeous dimensional look. Then I added a little "HELLO" which is embossed with WOW embossing powder.The panel itself is sponged with some pigment ink by Mama Elephant. And to finish off my design I glued a teeny tiny rhinestone into the center of each blossom. By the way, those rhinestones are actually meant to be embellishments for nail art, but I like them more on a card, haha :-))

So I hope you will play along with us!

Happy crafting and warm hugs!
