Bastel Traum Design Team Challenge #52

Hi everyone! I still haven’t got over the hype of hearing from all of you during my little giveaway. Thanks again for all of your comments and likes, which totally made my week!

The exciting news continue as I join my first Design Team. Bastel Traum is my favourite online crafts supply shop here in Switzerland. They also run a challenge blog (in English and German) and have an AMAZING design team which provides monthly inspiration based on the subject set for each challenge. I’m starting off this exciting experience as their DT member with Challenge #52, the subject of which is “Mother’s Day / Women / Little Girls“.

And since we were on the subject of challenges, I decided to go outside my card-making comfort zone to create a piece of home décor for my baby girl’s bedroom.

If you would like to recreate this project, check out the video tutorial below. For a chance to win a 15 CHF gift card to the Bastel Traum online shop (they ship worldwide!), why not take part in this month’s Bastel Traum Challenge and share your beautiful creations with us. This challenge will be open until May 15th 2017 at 8:55 am (MET). Good luck!

Curious Kitties Rotating Disc Card {Honey Bee Stamps}

Hi Peeps! Welcome back to my crafty blog (and apologies for the delay in posting this entry, I had some technical problems!)

Many of you probably know and follow lovely Lesley Oman’s “Hungry Heffy Crafts'” blog and YouTube channel (and if you don’t already, you totally should! She’s super talented.) Lesley is currently a Design Team Member for Honey Bee Stamps, which recently (February 2017) released a full collection designed in collaboration with Lesley. Hooray for Lesley (and for Melissa, the Queen Bee at Honey Bee Stamps)!!! As soon as I heard the happy news and saw the gorgeous designs in this collection, I knew I needed to get my hands on it (or at least part of it to start with!)

And so it is that in today’s card I’m featuring the “Curious Kitties” stamp set, which is part of that release by Honey Bee Stamps.

In today’s card I’m also sharing with you my secret weapon for achieving beautiful results with colour pencils. And remember, this is the video you need to comment on for a chance to win a gorgeous mini stamp from Lawn Fawn’s latest release! (See blog post below for full details or stayed tuned until the end of the video.) Thanks for playing along and good luck :o)

Your Next Stamp Challenge #60

Hi everyone! And welcome back to another card-making blog post and YouTube video. Today’s card is my entry to the Your Next Stamp Sketch and Color Challenge #60. For this challenge, Karen, Julie and the YNS team set the following sketch and colour combo:


Contestants could use either the sketch or the colour combo… but I chose to use both!

Your Next Stamp have recently started vlogging again on their YouTube Channel, which is very exciting news for all of us YNS fans. So, in order to celebrate this happy event, I decided to create a little video tutorial of my own. For today’s card I used the Funny Farm Crew stamp set and dies, along with the coordinating Funny Farm Sentiments stamps:


Now, if you’re anything like me and find it encouraging to watch other card-makers make and fix mistakes in their videos (nobody’s perfect, right?!), you’re going to want to sit tight and watch this video until the end!

Thanks for stopping by. I hope today gives you a good excuse to shake your “ba-donkey-donk”!!!

Supplies used:
– Funny Farm Crew stamp set
Funny Farm Crew die set
– Funny Farm Sentiments stamp set
6×6 Echo Park Paper Pad “Fall is in the Air”.
