Valentine’s Day Card – Bastel Traum Challenge #61

Hello crafty friends! Welcome to the Bastel Traum Challenge #61, which is also my very first post of 2018. I’m really excited to kicking off a new year with a Bastel Traum Challenge post. 2017 was a hectic year, juggling home, work and crafty commitments, and my monthly Bastel Traum posts helped me keep my blog active and make time for crafting, even when things got really nuts! So I really look forward to another year of playing along with the Bastel Traum Design Team  and with all of you out there who choose to play along with us each month!

The subject of this month’s challenge is “Love / Valentine’s Day”. For this challenge, I put together a tag/card using one of the images I coloured during last year’s Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge (by the way, Kathy Racoosin is launching her next Colouring Challenge today, so stay tuned for that post also, which will stay pinned to the top of my blog for the duration of the Challenge).

The stamped image is from JM Creation and I coloured it using my colour pencils. At the start of the last Colouring Challenge I exchanged a few stamped images with my friend Nicole, from the Bastel Traum DT, and this was one of the ones she sent me. Both the Outside In Stitched Heart Stackable Dies (red heart) and the Lacy Heart Stackable Dies (white heart) are by Lawn Fawn. The tag die is by Neat and Tangled, and the sentiments are from Heffy Doodle‘s “Beary Big Heart” Stamp Set.

Are you making any Valentine’s Day cards? Share them with us over at the Bastel Traum Challenge Blog for your chance to win a 15 chf certificate to the Bastel Traum Online Shop (they ship worldwide!) This month’s challenge will run until 15 Feb. 2018 at 8:45 am GMT+2. Until next time!

 

Newborn Baby Girl Gift (Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #16)

Well hello everyone! And thanks for stopping by. Today is a very happy day, since in a couple of hours I’ll be heading out of the house to meet sweet baby Zoe: my friend A’s newborn baby girl. Some of you may remember that a few months back I created a piece of home decor for my own baby girl. That piece hangs in her bedroom and it puts a smile on my face every time I look at it. So when it came to creating the prefect gift for baby Zoé, I thought of making something similar. And for an extra bit of fun, I am also entering this piece in the latest Lawn Fawnatics Challenge, where we are being challenged to use our oldest Lawn Fawn set (this one came out in 2012!)

A few months back, my friend A decided to start watercolouring for the first time in her life. I was so excited when she told me about this, that I immediately offered to stamp out a few images for her to practice her watercolouring and create something beautiful. She graciously accepted my offer and, a few days later, found herself playing with a few images from the “Flutter By” Set by Lawn Fawn (available in the US / Switzerland).

When she was done watercolouring, she didn’t make much of her images, so I asked her if I could have them back and make something with them. Little did she know that a few months later I would be creating this piece for her newborn baby girl! So, in a way, this is a present from baby Zoe both from me, but also from her own mummy! I can’t wait to hand it over to my dear friend A and see her surprised face! (If she’ll let me, I’ll snap a picture and share it with you soon).

Do you also own this classic Lawn Fawn set? If so, what has been your favourite creation with it? Leave me your links, I’d love to check out your projects and get inspired to create a bit more! I hope you enjoyed today’s home decor project and… until next time!

 

Bastel Traum Challenge #57 – Tic-Tac-Toe Card Recipe

Hello Bastel Traum friends! It’s time for another monthly challenge over at the Bastel Traum Challenge Blog. This is your chance to play along for a chance to win a 15 chf certificate to the Bastel Traum Online Shop (they ship worldwide!)

The subject of this month’s challenge is SUPER original since it’s a tic-tac-toe recipe. The idea is to choose any three elements from the tic-tac-toe board above, forming a straight line horizontally, vertically or diagonally. I chose to go diagonally from top to bottom, left to right, which set my card theme as polka dots – flowers – clean and simple. And this is what I came up with!

Isn’t that the coolest challenge theme ever!? To create my card I used the “Flutter By” stamp and die set by Lawn Fawn. For the sentiment I decided to reach for my “Big Scritpy Words” stamp and die set, also by Lawn Fawn! I did a bit of card stock layering (full product info in my video tutorial, link below!) and kept it clean and simple as the recipe called for!

I can’t wait to see all of your projects for this month’s challenge. To link up your entry, simply click on the image below. May the best card win and… until next time!
