Basteltraum's Challenge #83 Winter and/or Christmas

Hello, my friends!

Christmas is coming in leaps and bounds! So what better than quick and simple cards! The new challgenge over at bastel-traum's blog is all about winter and/or Christmas themed cards and mine is super quick and super simple to do :-) You don't need more than 10-15 minutes making this one.

I only needed white and kraft cardstock, 2 dies (the deer and the HOHOHO die), a knife, glue and a red pompom :-) perfect for mass producing!! No coloring involved, very time saving.

I hope you got inspired for simple Christmas cards and you will play along with us!

Thank you for stopping by and happy crafting!

Basteltraum's Challenge #82: Favorite animal

Hello my friends!

A new challenge has started over at Bastel-Traum's blog and it is all about animals, maybe your favorite animal??

Actually I love all animals but I simply had to use this newer set by Mama Elephant. Aren't these winged bunnies just the cutest??

I made this card for a dear friend and her name starts with a "B". Originally the stamp was with an empty star at the end of the angling rod, but I wanted to have a heart on on it... So I wiped off the ink from the very end of the stamp and drew in a heart by hand and connected the line again - here we go with a very personalized card :-))

I used some watercolors for both bunnies and the background panel is sponged with pigment ink. the main panel is see-through, but I closed it with a piece of a laminating foil that I sprinkled with confettis and ran it through my laminator; Jennifer McGuire made a great tutorial about this technique in case you want to give this a try, too!

The cloudy background is sponged onto the inside of the card, where you actually write your message afterwards :-)

I hope you got inspired and will play along with us!

Thank you for stopping by and happy crafting!
