Easter card using the Magic Iris

Hello everyone!
I am soooo, so late with this post, but life pushed itself between me and my blog the last week, but here it comes. This is my card for this months Papercraft Challenge with an "Easter" theme:

I created my very first card with the Magic Iris die by Lawn Fawn and have to say I am in love! Once I got the hang of it I created this card very quickly.

The only thing I am a little unhappy about is that I would have needed to use a double layer of foam tape around the mechanism which I didn't and so the paper bends down towards the edges a little. However, next time I won`t make that mistake again and I do like the card very much. It was so much fun playing with it and having the cute chick revealed ;o)

I hope you are going to show us your crafty "Easter" themed projects in our gallery! Until then please take care and happy, happy crafting ;o) Yours Maike

Frohe Ostern - Bunny with Easter basket

Heya everyone,
this is my inspiration card for our "Easter" challenge at the Crafty Cardmakers.

It is made with images by Gerda Steiner Designs and some lovely Lawn Fawn paper. I used a sketch I had put into my sketch book a while ago and love the result - especially with these light colours. I hope you like my inspiration card too and that you will join us for our current challenge. I feel that in the current situations handmade greeting cards are even more valuable than usual as they give a personal touch - so join me in sending out as many as you can ;o)))) Happy crafting and take care everyone ;o)

Kroküsse in pink

Heya everyone,
over at Challenge Up Your Life we would like to bring spring into your craft rooms by making the next challenge a "Focus on Flowers" one. If you know my blog you might know that I tend to use animals as my focal image 98% of the time - if not more so this was a real challenge for me. I love the flower images by Create A Smile, so I looked through them and found these crocus-images which I love so I decided to go with them and then I let myself be inspired by a wonderful Christmas card I got from Karolin. (You should definately hop on over to her instagram account, she makes such amazing cards!)

For the background I used the Cosmic Shimmer Metallic Gilding Polish in Lush Pink which really gives a wonderful rich colour and a lot of shine! (You can see it clearly in the first picture.) I placed the stamped and Copic coloured flowers on top taking my time to arrange the blooms and before glueing them down for good I also stamped the sentiment. The last thing to add was some Nuvo drops and my card was done. I hope you like it and that you are going to share your flowery projects with us in our gallery! Remember, you do have time until the 27th of April to do so and we would love to see what you come up with.
Have a wonderful month of April, take care of yourself and your loved ones and happy crafting ;o))) Yours Maike
