New Release Event Scrappers Delights Pirate

This week have Scrappers Delights New Release (click here)... 

What are the new images?

You will find a few new cute pirate digital stamps. You will have different pirates and a ship.... What from this guys do you prefer? The name of the images is "Its a pirate life". You can buy it here... At this time you will find an discount on the products.

Which one I get?

I get two images from the NR. Its a pirate life 1 and 5.  One pirate and the ship... As I saw the images I must think about the film "Pirates from the Caribbean" on the funny Captain Jack Sparrow :) If you like music, so you can look this video, I found in youtube...

How I  made my projects?

I made two cards, a special card form called Shadow box... I love how deep the card is... I colored the pirate with my Zig real brush markers... The ship I colored with Zig and pencils... I distressed the clouds and the water and cut out the water with Lawn Fawn Cloud die cuts and sore it in the right size for the Shadow box (also a die from Lawn Fawn). The sentiment is from an old stamp company (Whiff of Joy, is retired).

On the other card... Normal size A2 (American).  I use a thin wooden paper and distressed it, after than I glue it to the card base, after than I cut a circle in the card... and show in the background a scene... Here I used also an retired stamp from the same company like before.

Thanks for visit my blog and for your lovely comment:) If you prefer an image, let me know, maybe I can color it and you can save the next time :)

Regenbogen Farben/ Fantasy - Rainbow Colors/ Fantasy

Heute startet wieder eine neue Herausforderung bei
Today starts a new challenge by

baste-traum/ BLOG

Diesmal geht es ums Thema Regenbogen Farben/ Fantasy. Eine Karte, ein Bild oder eine Geschenkbox... aber auch eine Einladung zum Essen, ins Kino, echt... Wie zeigst Du auf Papier, dass Du jemanden magst, welches Motiv wirst Du wählen? Ich bin schon ganz gespannt, auf Deine Inspiration.

This time it goes around the theme Rainbow Colors/ Fantasy. A card, a picture or a giftbox... but why not a invitation to a restaurant/ in cinema/ etc.... Now I am curious, how will you show your friend your friendship/ love on paper? Which scene will you use?  I am glad to see your inspiration..

 Dies ist meine Inspiration. 
This is my inspiration.

Idee zur Karte
Idea behind the card

Ich habe hier ein A2 Format (US) als Kartengrundlage, welchen ich mit Distress Ink von Tim Holtz behandelt habe.... Am Anfang war ich noch nicht sicher, was genau ich machen möchte und manchmal lasse ich mich vom Internet inspirieren. Meine Freundin Francine macht gerne bunte Karten... Nachdem ich ihre Karten durchgeschaut habe, wusste ich, was ich machen möchte. Ich sah bei ihr eine ähnliche Karte, allerdings mit dem Wort Love und einen Waschbären. 
Der Drachen ist von Mama Elephant Me and My Dragon. Diesen habe ich mit meinen Comic Markern ausgemalt und ein paar Wackelaugen aufgesetzt.  Das Sentiment kommt von verschiedenen Stempeln aus meinen Inventar (sending =Hero Arts "Many Everyday Messages", Hugs is a Die from MFT and happy thougths  ist von Altenew "Beautiful Day"

I have a A2 format as card base. On this I add Distress Ink from Tim Holtz. At the beginning I wasn0t sure, what I want made. So I was looking around in the internet by my friend Francine, because she loves rainbow colors and so I found a simliar card (raccoon and Love letters). My dragon is from Mama Elephant (Me and my dragon). I color them with my Copic Markers. I add the letters HUGS from MFT to my card and the dragon. Do you work sometimes with holographic paper? Oh I love it... Also my sentiments are from different companies sending from hero Arts (everyday Messages) and the other from Altenew (Beautiful Day).

hier noch ein klitzekleines Video,  so wirkt Holographisches Papier...
here a small video, where you can see the holographic paper...

What is the idea behind the card?

This time I use a rapper stamp image Emma and Aimé. It is a friendly card with the two fairies and I think I want to send the card to a friend from me.

How I made the card?

I use the image on a card and color them with Copics and Prisma Premium Pencils. After coloring I add clouds with my stencil and Distress Ink. I decided me to made a square card so I die cut my image with a Die from MFTWonky Square Stax. I add a black background. I take a A4 (EU format) cardstock and cut it 5Inch x10Inch, score at 5 Inch and have card base. I add my image with foam tape to the base and add a suitable sentiment (Hero Arts; Many Everyday Messages). This time I try to bring a stamp sentiment to the inside from the card... (from SSS Everything Together)
"I wish we lived closer. Pretty sure we would do everything together."

Whimsy Stamp Lama Spanish birthday

Today I share this funny card on the Whimsy stamp blog. What do you think, a great birthday card for my Spanish speaking people?

What is the idea behind the card?

I made this card, because I love the Lama stamp set... Looks amazing... Why not made a birthday card with a Spanish sentiment?

How I made this card?

First I stamped the image with a Copicfriendly ink. After than I color this cute critter with Alcoholmarker and Prismacolor Premium Pencils. I use a black card base A2 format and cut a smaller white cardstock, because I want to made a background, who will fit...The background was made with different stencils and dry embossing. I also use my pencils to bring a little accent into the picture. I cut out the Lama and glue it to the card. For my sentiment I use an Spanish stamp, mean the same like happy birthday...

Tipps and Tricks

You can use distress backgrounds to many occasions and it looks really great. If you haven't the right stencils? You can made DIY. I use a laminated foil to made my own pattern...

Don't forget...

Our next Challenge will open on the May 15th... I can't wait to see your idea...

My Monthly April Kit from Hero Arts

What exactly is the monthly kit?

Every month Hero Art give out a special kit, filled with an 6x8.25 Inch stamp set, with a lots of dies and adding. Sometimes there are inks, tapes, paper, ribbons, tags and much more. Every month is the theme a surprise. What I love is the value, the worth from each kit is much more expensive, as the buying price. 

What means the April Monthly Kit?

This is the kit came in April 2018. It was the last kit and look at the picture, what is all inside.

April monthly Hero Arts kit
You can see inside is a big stamp set, also a lot of dies (including a background die, inks and special paper. It is a great stamp set, if you need Spanish sentiments... for example for you other language speaking friends...

What is a subscription meaning?

I am a subscriber from this set. I write this post without sponsoring, only because I love the kits and the quality. Every month you get a kit with a special shipping coast (international). It is the cheapest shipping coast I know from USA. You can also add add ons a little bit earlier, than the rest of the world. Every month you can add a special category with an discount. What I love is that the add ons don't cost shipping...It is included in the shipping coast from the kit. You never miss a kit. Before the subscription exist, I missed kits (for example the November 2015 kit, never found to buy again)... 

Can you combine Hero arts Monthly kits?

Yes of course, absolutely... I show you a few cards, that I combine it with the March kit. There are a lot of words inside and a few word dies... You can also use the add ons like embossing powder and sequins with other images.

Do you craft every month?

Yes,  I this is my hobby and it is a great therapy to relax and come down from the working world... But not every month I made cards from the kit, sometime a little bit later... Often I use the sentiments for other DT cards or special dies or add ons...
Butt last month I made 5 cards with the Mexican theme... Hope you like it :)

Can you say something to your cards?

For this card I use the amazing dancing miss mouse and the swainish sentiment for let's dance. I love to color no line, also I stamped the image with a light grey. The sentiment I use the heat embossing gold for a beautiful shining.

The card is an add on from a kit, I don't know which one it was. The base is an A2 card format. I used an embossing folder from WeR Memory keepers with hearts (called Dotted). I add brown decorated paper strips to bring an accent in the card.

This card makes me happy... Can you imagine to hug an cactus? I  use a black A2 card base and heat embossed with clear powder different cacti on the background. Can you see them?

On this card I stamped again with a light color and color all with my Prismacolor Pencils. I add a sentiment stamp from the March kit, I think it fits perfectly :)

At last I add a few glitter tape on my card. I glue this with my glue pen, because sometimes the tapes don't glue right and to solve the paper. I don't like this.

Here ist the other mouse. I use this time a white card A2 base. This time I use the technique again with the clear embossing powder in the background with the guitar's. 

Can you feel the music? 

I made a color combo with traditional Spanish colors... 

Piñata... I learned this know fro a few years and I love the idea behind. 

Here I use the background die and a sentiment from a normal stamp set from Hero Arts called "Many Everyday Messages" and made this CAS card...

...and the last card for the moment is this rattlesnake card... Fiesta time means Party time...

On the picture it is not easy to see, but the white background I use is from an old kit. It is a wooden paper.

Here I stamped the snake and color this one with my prefer pencils. I distressed the background and add the sentiment... In the set you will find the half circle, which I use on the ground from the snake... I think this are great for bring in an accent. With the golden glitter tape I finished my card.

Thanks so much for visit my blog and I hope you can understand my English. If you have questions, please let me know. I will answer soon as possible.

Thanks so much for give me a lovely comment and maybe you have an idea with a card you want see?

Whimsy New Release Week Baseball Penguin

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.

What is the idea behind the card?

We have this month a super cute baseball penguin. Ok, baseball will be a challenge to me, because we don't play it here in Switzerland. So my target was, to find a real baseball team and bring the colors or brand to my image. I search a while, till I found the Toronto Blue Jays... Never heard before, but I hope you will like the little penguin. So sorry, if this not your favorite baseball team, maybe you let me know and I will try your lovely one.... 

How I made the card?

I decided me, that I want to color on vellum, so I print out the image with a light grey with my printer. After I found a baseball team, what I prefer I began to bring in the details and colored all with my Prismacolor Pencils. In the internet I search for a card design (so sorry, I don't know where I found this design).  I use the new digital paper Going Dotty. The sentiment I found in my stuff.

Which products I use?

Going Dotty
