#82 (Lieblings-) Tier/ (favorite) animal

Today starts a new Challenge by bastel-traum.blogspot.ch
Heute startet die neue Challenge bei bastel-traum.blogspot.ch



Dieses Mal geht es bei uns um Thema Lieblingstier/ Tier...  Hmmm, ich mag so viele Tiere, es ist für mich einfacher diese aufzuzählen, die ich nicht mag. Ich konnte mich nicht entscheiden und habe gedacht ich schaue mal, was ich für Stempel habe. Als ich die Karte gestaltet habe, war ich gerade in der Vorbereitung unseres USA Urlaubes. Wir hatten auch ein Whale watching (dies ist eine Bootstour, wo man einen Wal sehen kann, wenn man Glück hat) organisiert. 
Wir trafen sehr viele Delfine, welche ich auch sehr interessant finde. Das Glück war auf unserer Seite, wir sahen einen Zwergwal, anscheinend sieht man diese eher selten. Der Wal war eher scheu und zeigte sich nur sehr bedeckt, drehte sich im Wasser und versuchte vor dem Schiff wegzuschwimmen. Wundervolle Tiere. 
Was fällt Dir ein, ich freue mich auf Deine Inspiration.

This time we have the theme favorite animal/ animal... Ohhh... I love many animals, it is easier to say which one I don't like. I had trouble to decide which one I want to show... In September I was planning to our family vacation and I planed a whale watching trip.  On this trip we saw a lot of dolphins which I like also a lot and we had luck and saw a Minke whale, the women said, that they are rar to see. Which luck we had :) The whale was really shy... we saw that he rolled under water and his tail fin. Picture to made was really complicated. 
What do you like? I cant't wait to see your inspiration.

Dies ist meine Inspiration zum Thema.

This is my inspiration card to the theme.

Whimsy Inspiration Post Reindeer Fart

Wow, time is running it is mid of October and it is time to  show the next Blog Post for me.

I use the funniest stamp I found in the current New Release, called Reindeer Fart, oops... 


How I made this card?

I decided me for a CAS card design. This means that it is clean and simple. Only the stamp and a sentiment on the card, no other paper or special design. It is great for no time card making. 
I printed the stamp and the sentiment on my paper (Sheena). Cut and fold it to the A2format (US). After than I colored the guy on the card with my Luminace Pencils. 
...and finished it.

I can't wait to see your funny card with this reindeer :)

here can you find the stamp.

Whimsy Inspiration Blog Post Snowman Friends

Today I show you a special card. I must say it is my first Snow globe, I colored. I try this time the 3D optic with a glass ball... 



How I made this card?

I am a member from Kit and Clowder class and so I get a free class between the monthly classes. In one where a snow globe and I use it here. I add the digital stamp into the glass ball :) For an better optic I choose opacity to reduce to 30%... So the image is now light grey instead of black (line). 
I use for coloring my charcoal Pencils and made a black and white coloring. It is perfect for a glass look, because you can erase this better or made some details. 
I work this time with shadow and highlights, it is a great practice. 

This stamp is my focal point of this card so I made a simple card. 

The sentiment is from Simon Say Stamps and I stamped with a grey ink from Altenew, which has the perfect tone for this coloring.  Looks like milled in the wood from this snow globe. 


This stamp is from the current New Release, you find it here.


Wish you a great week.

Card Making Day Whimsy Stamps

World Cardmaking Day is a day dedicated to celebrating the art of handmade cards – whether made with construction paper and crayons or with more sophisticated supplies.

As we crafters can all agree, a store-bought card, while nice, just can’t replace the personal and thoughtful nature of one made by hand.

Today, the Whimsy Design Teams are honoring this craft with two hops –
one here and another on Instagram.

For each hop Whimsy is giving away a $25 gift certificate to the store.


To increase your chances of winning, be sure to leave a comment on each stop of the hop.
All comments must be left by midnight EST on Saturday, October 12th.
One winner will be randomly-chosen from each hop, and the winners will be announced on the Whimsy blog on Sunday, October 13th.


Ute Berger (you are here)
Here is my inspiration for this event. Hope you like this little cute penguin.
For more Halloween fun and prizes, be sure to check out the Whimsy Blog every night this month for the 3rd Annual 31 Nights of Halloween blog celebration!


Best Wishes and good luck,
Hugs Ute

Whimsy Stamps New Release October 2019

Welcome to RELEASE Week at Whimsy


We have some amazing new stamps, sentiments and papers to share with you I really hope you will stop by and take look at the NEW RELEASES.

Wooohooo, this month you will find a lot of great products...

For my first card from this month I decided me to choose the super cute Oakland Boy Digital Stamp.

How I made this card?
I print out the Oakland Boy Stamp on my regular printer. After than I colored the boy with my Luminace Pencils. I love to try the D3 optic, so I use shadow and add an eye accent.
It is fall time, so I made the leaves colorful...
The German sentiment means "autumn greetings". I add on the background sky with my distress Inks. 

At last I put all together to an A2 (US format) card. 



Hope you love this inspiration. Can't wait what you are made. 

Have a nice October 2019.

Hugs Ute
