Bastel Traum Challenge #55 – Mixing and matching stamp sets

Hello crafty friends! Today I bring you: not one, not two, but three cards as part of the monthly challenge over at the Bastel Traum challenge blog. This month the Design Team was given a colour scheme to work with and it was just SO gorgeous, I couldn’t limit myself to one project!

For these cards I started off by cutting my front panels from smooth white cardstock using my Waffle Flower Lacy Layers 2 Dies (very similar to Lawn Fawn’s Fancy Scalloped Rectangle Stackables). I then created different ink blended backgrounds using 3 colours of Distress Inks to match the colour scheme provided: Spun SugarMustard Seeds and Tumbled Glass. The colourful back panels are from the Lawn Fawn Plaid Rainbow 6in x 6in paper pack.

Next up, I mixed and matched 3 different stamp and die sets by Lawn Fawn (Big Scripty Words, Home Sweet Home and Little Bundle) and a gorgeous new stamp set from Altenew (Crafty Friends) for one of my sentiments. I stamped them using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, which I knew wouldn’t bleed when I coloured over it with my (alcohol based) Copic markers, before I went ahead and die cut them using my matching dies and beloved Sizzix Big Shot machine. I fussy cut all images for which I didn’t have dies.

I adhered the more intricate images using my glue pen and for the larger ones I went for a few foam squares.  And for a finishing touch, a stroke of Wink of Stella over my images. Here’s the process video:

I hope you enjoy today’s cards and YouTube video. Don’t forget to stop by the Bastel Traum Challenge Blog to play along for a chance to win a 15 CHF certificate to the Bastel-Traum.com online shop (they ship worldwide!) Until next time!

“Let’s stay in touch” cards: Another end-of-school-year project!

Click here for the Heffy Doodle “Unbearable Without You” reveal post!

Between year-end picnics at nursery school and parent-teacher feedback meetings, we’ve got a lot going on at home this week! Yet, I managed to make time to put together a quick project for the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #7: Watercolour using my Lawn Fawn “Happy Summer” stamp set.

My boy is “graduating” from nursery school in a few days and, after 4 years together, all of his little classmates will be attending different schools next year. I created a bunch of these little “Let’s stay in touch” cards with our contact details to bring with us to the end-of-year picnic this week. Where did the last four years go!? And what are you doing to wrap up the school year? I’d love to find out in the comments section below!

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.

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.
