Basteltraum's Challenge #81: Autumn



Hello my friend!

Not far away from the beginning season of fall, we have a new challenge for you over at Basteltraum's blog which is all about it this time!

I created a housewarming card which is actually for my brother and his family. We will have the party next Saturday (hopefully he won't spot the card before, hahaha :-) ) .  His house is yellow and has a grass green door. And his backyard has a GIANT oak tree that embraces almost the whole backyard. So I thought this would look pretty on a card, together with his house... :-) by opening the little door from the house, they will find a family photo of their own. I mostly try to personalize the cards I gift to someone - I think it makes a handmade card even more special and unique.

That pretty house is a die set of the latest release by Lawnfawn.

I diecut most parts of it with white cardstock; only the roof parts and the door are diecut of colored cardstock.

I inked up all the pieces, the leaves, the background etc. with Distress Oxides, the sentiment is heat embossed with white embossing powder.

I hope you got inspired and will play along with us over at Basteltraum's blog!

Happy crafting,

Basteltraum's Challenge #80: Sentiment



Hello my friend!

I am happy you stop by today, how are you? I am really enjoying the cooled down temperatures outside; I have so much more mojo for crafting when it's not too hot outside :-)

So we have a new challenge starting over at Bastel-Traum's blog with the theme "Sentiment". The card design just has to include a sentiment somewhere - whether it's big or small or like, in my case, balloon shaped! :-)

My example is actually pretty quickly made. I just brushed on a bit distress oxide ink on a card panel and went a second time over it with a stencil. The images (by Simon says Stamp, Party like a Panda) are colored with Copic markers. For the little extra something, I cut off the stamped strings from the balloons and replaced them with real twine. That panda is so adorable, isn't it?? :-))

So Iam excited to see your creations and I hope you will play along with us - see you there!
