Happy Birthday | MFT

Hey there! I am back with a birthday card which turned out just the way I imagined ;-)

I created the watercolored background by white heat embossing the 'etched flower' background stamp from My favorite things and colored it in with green Gansai Tambi watercolors. Then I blended green, brown and yellow distress inks on a piece of watercolor paper and diecut the images from 'jungle friends' from that paper. I added some details with Zig clean color real brush markers and adhered everything to the background.

I also diecut the 'birthday border' (Lawn Fawn) from some pattern paper and added yellow enamel dots from my stash. In order to round up the color scheme I chose a craft card base.

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

Rainbows and eternal Happiness | Mama Elephant

Hello everyone! I really love making colorful clouds so I decided to create a background with them in rainbow order. The 'unicorns and rainbows' stamp set from Mama Elephant was just perfect for it.

After creating all the clouds with a diy-stencil using the cloud 'landscape trio' die and some distress inks I stamped the two unicorns and some additional images in the same ink colors. With water and a darker shade of the colors I filled in the images. Nevertheless, it has kind of a transluscent look to it and I reall like this.

I stamped a sentiment included in the stamp set with a grey ink and added Wink of Stella shimmer to all the images. Last but not least I also used Nuvo drops for more details.

Thank you so much for stopping by and have an amazing day!

Hi cutie! | Lawn Fawn

Hello everyone! Today I created a card to send out all year 'round. I used products from many different companies and I really love combining them.

With Lawn Fawn dies I created the mailbox, the stitched rectangle and hill. I colored in all the pieces with distress ink before diecutting them. On some of the images I sprinkled water droplets and some of them I just left as they were. Otherwise it woulde be too overwhelming, I guess. The mailbox from 'happy mail' is the focus point of the card and I just love this die also the sweet little envelope you can tuck in.

For the background I used the 'postage stamp' die from Avery elle and the grass is made with dies from 'jungle friends' from MFT.

For the greeting I chose a very versatile one from 'labeled messages' (Mama Elephant).

I think the card doesn't need more details so I left it when everything was adhered to a white cardbase.

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

Baby Cards | Mama Elephant

Hello! Recently I have made two very similar cards for new born girls which I am going to show you today. Again I used my favorite baby stamp set 'new family' from Mama Elephant. I really hope that there will be more baby stamp sets in the future because I could need some more :-)

For each of the cards I blended the distress ink colors spun sugar, dried marigold and scattered straw and sprinkled some water droplets. I stamped the images and colored them in with pale Copic markers. I also used some Wink of Stella clear brush pen to add a little shimmer to some of the images. For the tails I used nuvo accents. 

For the sentiment I combined the greeting from the stamp set with 'upper calli letters' and 'calli letters' in order to personalize the cars. Aren't those names so cute? I also used the 'all prettied up' die for each of the cards and create a cute pink bow. As a cardbase I chose a shimmer paper.

I decorated them with clear sequins.

Thank you so much for stopping by and have an awesome week!

Happy Birthday | Mama Elephant

Hi everyone! I love browsing my stamp/die stash and get inspired. This time I "found" some Mama Elephant stamps as well as Avery Elle and Lawn Fawn dies which go well toghether and created this birthday card:

For the background I used my Zig clean color real brush markers together with some water. I think I repeated this two times in order to get that nice watercolored look.
I stamped the sweet Panda from 'pandamonium' and the heart balloons from 'cub cuddles'. I used Zig markers again for the coloring.

Then I two of the 'fancy scalloped circle stackables' from white cardstock and the adhered them together with the stamped and cut images. I diecut the whole piece with 'postage stamp' and used the die a second time on a piece of cardstock which I colored in with coordinating distress inks in an ombre look. 

Last but not least I added the sentiment and some Nuvo glitter drops to finish my card.

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