Mehr Meer oder I sea it's your birthday!


Heya guys!
I am so sorry, but I completely forgot to post this card! It is for Challenge Up Your Life and you can still play until the 27th of July ;o) Here is my inspiration card:



I used the super cute stamps from Purple Onion Designs and created a background for my scene with Distress Inks. The clouds in the sky are barely visible in this picture, but believe me there are some and they look really nice in real life! ;o)


I hope you are having a great day and that you'd like to join us in our "Vitamin Sea" challenge at Challenge Up Your Life! Happy crafting, Maike

Beary Happy Birthday!


Hello everyone ;o)
I am back with a new card for the "Dies or Punches" challenge over at the Crafty Cardmakers blog: 


For my card I used three different kinds of dies: the panel die, a letter / sentiment die and a letter / banner die. In my head I had pictured something fun and colourful so I started by creating the background paper. I have used Distress Inks in Peacock Feathers and Fozzilized Amber and blended them together to get a kind of ombre background and splattered it with water to get these fun drops in the background.


Once the background was dry I glued it to a card base and added the panel die-cut on top. The bear fit perfectly size- and themewise for what I had in mind, so I took out my Zig markers and coloured it in. 


Once I had the bear adhered I added the sentiment. I always loved the banner letters and thought they would be perfect for this challenge, so I spelled "beary" with it and finished the sentiment with a die-cut "Happy" and a stamped "birthday". I hope you are going to join us for our challenge at the Crafty Cardmakers! Happy crafting, everyone ;o))) Maike

Have a happy colourful birthday!


Heya my friends!
This card is for the current Papercraft Challenge. We would like to see some "Stars" on your project and as you can see there are loads of them on my card ;o)))


I have ink blended a background using Oxide Inks in Picked Raspberry, Squeezed Melonade and Peacock Feather to get all these beautiful colours. The die and the super cute chameleon are from Your Next Stamp and I love them both ;o)


I have used a sentiment stamp from the set but added the "Happy" on pink from a different set, because I love a vivid green combined with pink. I hope you are going to join us for our "Stars" challenge and I am looking forward to seeing your starry projects ;o) Have a wonderful day and happy crafting ;o) Yours Maike

Geht's Dir gut? Stempelbar Hop

Heya my dear crafty friends!

I was lucky to be part of a wonderful hop last weekend: the Stempelbar-Hop on Instagram. Stempelbar is a shop located in Berlin and they have wonderful unique images but also you can get loads of well known brands from their store.
This is the card I made for the hop:




I love this crazy cow very much and it always makes me smile to see that huge funny head ;o) If you are interested in seeing more projects from the hop just go to this instagram post of mine ;o)

Hope you like the card as much as I do ;o) Happy crafting, everyone ;o))))

Taufkerze für Felix

Hello dear crafters!
As you might know I truly enjoy making cards. As I myself found out recently I detest working with wax, but I love how the candle turned out. But first things first: The Crafty Cardmakers dare you to make "Anything But A Card" this time around. I thought I'd give myself a real challenge and created the candle for my nephew's christening:


It isn't perfect, but it is handmade ;o) So I am almost certain Felix will like it when he is older. Is there something you would like to create apart from a card? Yes? Perfect! ;o) Then I hope you will share it with us at the Crafty Cardmakers. I may not feel tempted to play with wax again anytime soon, but I am absolutely glad I tried it. Have a wonderful and crafty week ;o)

Thank you- Box with a fox

Heya everyone ;o)
Today I would like to share a little project with you that I made with some kind people in mind. They have been helping with our bicycle training at school even though they have loads on their plates as well. So I thought I would create a little gift box for all of them. That fit perfectly with our "No Cards / Keine Karten" challenge at Papercraft Challenges which starts today.


I am not sure what will go inside the boxes yet, but I will hopefully think of something soon ;o) The cute fox image is a stamp by Purple Onion Designs. I coloured all of them differently using the watercolour pens from Winsor & Newton. They are lightfast and also have very rich colours. 


I hope you will join us in our "No cards" challenge! Have a lovely week and happy crafting ;o) Yours Maike

Whaley Huge Birthday Wishes

Hello y'all ;o)
Yesterday we published a new task at the Crafty Cardmakers Challenge blog. We would like to see "Masculine" cards and projects. This is my inspiration card:

 

When you know some of my cards you'll see that this is a particularly "empty" one for my stile, but I really like it. The background was made quickly with two different shades of blue Oxide Inks (Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch) and spritzed with a few drops of water which i removed with a cloth almost immediately.


While the card base dried I coloured the whale with Copic markers in light blue shades, so it would be clearly visible against the background. Lastly I added the sentiment with Archival Jet Black Ink and the card was done. What do you think? Do you like a very CAS card once in a while?


I hope you are going to play along with our challenge and link your project to our gallery ;o) I also hope to see you soon and wish you a wonderful and crafty week! Yours Maike ;o)

Supplies:
Stamps: "Totally Narly" Your Next Stamp
