Papierturnier Bloghop Herbst-Winter Katalog /Holiday catalogue

Hello and Thank you for stopping by!!!
Today I´m taking part again in the Papier Turnier Bloghop which means Paper Tournament :)  Judith from Austria organised this Bloghop that takes place every 2nd Thursday of the month.



 You´re probably arriving from Carola or maybe you´re starting on my blog. Make sure to visit all of the blogs to get the full inspiration and ideas from all the very creative ladies taking part.

This month´s theme for the bloghop is the Holiday catalogue AKA der Herbst-/Winter Katalog.

I decided to make  a fall/autumn project as Christmas is still a little while to go.



 As some of you know I´m a kindergarden teacher and this week I talked to my children at work about fall/autumn and what signs show that it´s about to be this nice colorful season. One of the things are the leaves changing colors, so I put this in my project, let´s see if you can spot it ;) I personally love fall/ autumn as it´s one of my avourite season with the not to hot or cold weather, the wonderful colors and of course my favourite vegetables PUMPKIN!!!


I started off with a cardbase in Pumpkin Pie (hehehehehe) and layered a piece in soft suede on top of it.
On top of that came a piece of selfmade DSP using the Vintage Leaves and once again PumpkinPie ink to stamp them randomly onto the paper. I also sponged some more to make it blend with the cardbase.

Next I diecut 2 banners from soft suede and whister white with the banner framelits. I then stamped acorn tops from the Acorny Thank you stamp set  in Pumpkin Pie ink on the whisper white one and layered it on top of the second banner. On top of that came a scallop circle in the new Pumpkin Pie glimmer paper and put a whisper white circle on top of it.
In the new holiday catalog is a cute new set for halloween and fall/autumn that fits a new builder punch. If you know me , you know that i couldn´t resist but buy this punch for a lot of future projects.

The set I´m talking about is the Cookie-Cutter Halloween set (don´t miss the awesome Cookie cutter christmas set bundle either). I stamped the scarecrow on shimmer white cardstock and colored it with different fall-ish stampin up colors. Then I punched it out using the Cookie Cutter Builder punch and adhered it using a couple of dimentionals. Isn´t he just so cute?!



 I then picked a sentiment from the Acorny Thank you set and bent it a little to fit the Thoughtful banners stamp set and the Banner Duo punch to punch it out. The banner was also adhered with dimentionals and my card was good to go.

What do you think?
Last month I did my first comment-giveaway and the winner was my Stampin Up! Sister Eva from Heldenstempel ( Unfortunately she was the only one that commented). Eva loved her prize though :)
I will give the giveaway another try though hoping to see more comments this time. I won´t tell you the crafty prize as it will be a surprise. To win just leave a comment and I will pick a random winner.


So go ahead and please leave a comment  and let me know what you think :)
Now have fun with the Blog Hop and have a look what the other lovely ladies created  :)

Papierturnier Bloghop Farbchallenge/ Colour Challenge

Hello and Thank you for stopping by!!!
Today I´m taking part again in the Papier Turnier Bloghop which means Paper Tournament :)  Judith from Austria organised this Bloghop that takes place every 2nd Thursday of the month.


 You´re probably arriving from Eva Osterwalder from Heldenstempel or maybe you´re starting on my blog. Make sure to visit all of the blogs to get the full inspiration and ideas from all the very creative ladies taking part.

This month´s theme for the bloghop is a Colour Challenge.
 
The Colours we have to use on our Project are : Flirty Flamingo, Emerald Envy, Daffodil Delight .
And this is what I came up with:

 I started with a Flirty Flamingo that I stamped with the Flowers from the Garden in Bloom Stampset.

I then took a piece of shimmery White cardstock and stamped the Elephant from the Love you lots Hostess Stampset on it and colored it in Tip Top Taupe. The gras I watercolored in Emerald Envy and tried to color in a shadow of the elephant as well.

I decided to give the elephant something to hold on to and decided for 3 ballons  from the Balloon Celebration Stampset. I made one each in all 3 of the challenge colours. The strings are from the same stampsets just curved differently.For a little sparkle I added some wink of stella to the balloons. I also put dimentionals under the ballons to raise them up.

On the right side of the white panel  stamped a friendship sentiment from the Garden in bloom Stampset. I stamped it in Flirtly Flamingo.




I matted the white panel with 2 daffodil delight scallop borders and adhered it to the cardbase. Voila I´m done! I´m quite happy with this card and I will do a giveaway of this card to one random picked person that comments under this post telling me what their favourite colour combination is. You can comment until the next thursday(18th of august) to get into the drawing for the giveaway.
Please leave a comment  and let me know what you think :)
Now have fun with the Blog Hop and have a look what the other lovely ladies created  :)

Papierturnier Bloghop Beachparty

Hello and Thank you for stopping by!!!
Today I´m taking part again in the Papier Turnier Bloghop which means Paper Tournament :)  Judith from Austria organised this Bloghop that takes place every 2nd Thursday of the month.

 You´re probably arriving from Eva Osterwalder from Heldenstempel or maybe you´re starting on my blog. Make sure to visit all of the blogs to get the full inspiration and ideas from all the very creative ladies taking part.

This month´s theme for the bloghop is Beach-Party.
So we will show you all projects that will bring you in the mood for the beach, sunshine, summer and more :)
I´m presenting you a special shaker card today that I combined with some punchart.




I cut the polaroid from whisper white cardstock using my paper trimmer and matted it on Island Indigo cardstock to be the center point of the card. The background is cut from DSP from the Serene Scenery paper stack from Stampin Up.
The sentiment is from the Sunshine Wishes Die set and I cut it from black cardstock and then covered it with glossy accents and let it dry.  The Hello is from the Sunshine saying stampsets that coordinates with the dies.

I did some punchart with the acorn punch and the festive flower punch  from peekaboo peach and flirty flamingo cards to create the small flip flops. Aren´t they so cute??




The sun was also made with the festive flower punch and I punched a bunch of the smallest petals and adhered them to a 1 3/4 inch circle  also in daffodil delight cardstock and sponged the edges with the same ink. I also punched one pair of petals out of black cardstock and covered it with glossy accents.Then I added a smile using a black and red marker :)
On the inside of the shaker element I put real sand from the beach of the baltic sea, which a child of my group at work brought home for me :) I also added some small sequins in blue and silver to give it a little bit of bling and also added 3 blue sequins to the bottom of the cardbase.

I think this card has summer written all over it and I´m very happy how it turned out. Please leave a comment  and let me know what you think :)
Now have fun with the Blog Hop and have a look what the other lovely ladies created  :)

Happy birthday unicorn

Hello and thank you for stopping by!
Today I have a birthday card for you that I mailed to a fellow demonstrater  which is celebrating her 29th birthday again today. 

 She loves unicorns and as i didn't have any unicorn stamps I decided to make my own somehow. 

)I then took the horse from the lunar animals from mama elephant. Colored it's hair in melon mambo and added some glitter with wink of stella and my sakura glitter gel pen. But a horse is not a unicorn so i cut a horn and glittered it too and attached it to the horse. Tadaaaaaa my selfmade unicorn!

But a unicorn is a magical creature and needs a magical world to live in. So i took some washitape and masked some sunbeams on whisperwhite paper. Then i blended all colors of the rainbow on the background as unicorns and rainbows are just meant for each other.  

Then i removed the tape and got this beautiful background.

For the clouds I made a template (in lack of cloud silhouette dies) using different size punched circles that I taped together and then traced the silhouette on a piece of whisper white.  I did this 2 times. Then I pierced the outline of my clouds and spobged it with soft sky ink to give it some dimension. I layered it on top of the sunburst background with dimentionals.

On the thick whisperwhite base card  i traced a rectangle with the golden glitter tape we had during the saleabration. On top of it came my finished sky background. 
The sentiment was cut from golden glitter paper using the hello you framelits and the birzhday stamped and cut out using the hello you stampset.

Everything attached and the card was ready to go to Austria.  I hope Judith liked it and you like it as well.  

Happy crafting!

Papier Turnier Blog Hop

Hello and Thank you for stopping by!!!
Today I´m taking part in my first ever Bloghop which is called Papier Turnier which means Paper Tournament :)  Judith from Austria organised this Bloghop that takes place every 2nd Thursday of the month.
 You´re probably arriving from .Janina Baltrusch or maybe you´re starting on my blog. Make sure to visit all of the blogs to get the full inspiration and ideas from all the very creative ladies taking part.

This month´s theme for the bloghop is   Flowers and Blossoms :)
As many of you know I love flowers  and so I loved this theme of course too :)
 With the new Stampin Up Annual catalog that launched on june 1st I had a few new sets and bundles I ordered from it that i used for my card.

The base of my card is made from thick whisper white cardstock. On top of that I layered a piece of the new Irresistibly  Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper that I colored with my sponge tools and ink in the colors of Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Tempting Turquoise, Dapper Denim and Rich Razzleberry. I was so happy when I saw that paper in the catalog as it´s similar to a SAB product we had in 2015.
I then cut a strip of vellum and heatembossed a sentiment of the the Over the Rainbow stampset from SU in black on it. The sentiment is about Rainbows and so it´s a connection  of the colors I used on the background. I then adhered it with gluedots and tear & tape to the card.





To finish off the flowers and blossoms theme I stamped , colored and diecut some flowers and a vine from the falling flowers stampset and May flowers framelits that you can buy in a bundle. I added 3 little rhinestones to the flowers and adhered them on the vellum :)
 And voila the card was done and it was a lot of fun to make it :) I hope you do like it and will give the products I used a try as well. Please leave a comment  and let me know what you think :)


Now have fun with the Blog Hop and have a look what the other lovely ladies created  :)

Only 3 more days

Hello and thank you for stopping by!
Today it's only 3 more days until the big Stampin up Onstage local event in Düsseldorf.  I'm so excited!

Today's card is another birthdaycard.
The base of the card is in Wisteria wonder and i stamped the Everything Eleanor swirls on it in perfect plum.

Then i used my banner dies to cut out a banner from very vanilla cardstock and I stamped it with the leaves from the rose garden stampset in Sahara Sand.  I covered the edges with the glitter tape from the last saleabration and added a Sentiment from the Saleabration set Party pants. In the right top corner i stamped  a pansy flower twice on vanilla cardstock with perfect plum ink and punched one of them with the pansy punch and one with a circle punch and mattet it with a perfect plum circle. 

I also added some wink of stella to the flower and put it on top of the circle-flower and layered it with dimentionals.
Rhinestones arranged in the middle of the flower and the card was finished. 

Please let me know what you think about it.  Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!

Only 4 more days

Hello and thank you for stopping by!
Today it's only 4 more days until the big Stampin up Onstage local event in Düsseldorf!!!!! Woohoooooooo!

Today's card is for a dear friend of mine that is celebrating a special anniversary in her life. In a few days it's been 5 years since she had beat breastcancer and that means she is cancer free.

I made a rather simple and clean card using a white cardbase on which i stamped the swirls of the Everything Eleanor stamp set in melon mambo. On top i mounted a scallop circle from vellum and two nesing circles in Melon Mambo and Whisper White. I also cut out a 5 with the big numbers dies from blushing bride glimmer paper and glued it on top.

A black sentiment from hero arts at the bottom section and some white and vellum flowers  together with some nice rhinestones and my card was good to go. 
It arrived at my friend yesterday and she loved it which is most important. 
What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!
