Basteltraum Challenge #101 Water

 Hi thereπŸ’–

Another month another challenge! Are you ready for summer? The perfect time for jumping into the sea!

I was really into creating these Maze Cards so I created this underwater scene. 

I colored the background with Distress Inks and Oxide and added some water and some sunbeams in the end for getting a realistic look.

For the opportunity to slide these creatures through the water I used 1 Cent coins, they just work very well. Put everything together with foam tape and you get a cute underwater scene.

So now's your turn! Looking forward to seeing your creations!

Happy Crafting!

Basteltraumchallenge #100 Surprise

Hey there πŸ₯³ surprise I'm back

And I'm back with a new card for the new basteltraumchallenge.
And this is how I've done it. 

First of all I had no idea what to create so I've just pulled everything out what I would like to use. Then I went back to my bullet journal where I create sketches for a bit bigger cards so I see every step I take. 
Then I diecut everything I needed. 
Followed by all the heatembossing...
Then I stamped everything and this is how I lined up the sweet dragon in the magic Iris.
Followed by all the colouring...
And last but not least I put everything together and ended it up with my gorgeous stamp from create a smile and sommerabend.
So now its your turn  looking forward to seeing your surprises. 😍

Basteltraum Challenge #98 Birthday

Hi everyone πŸ’—
It's time for another challenge and this time I haven't put so much thought in the card, it has literally just flown to me. 

I started by just colouring and fussy cutting this picture. Then I took pincers and cut a whole through the two pieces and pinned them together. 

Then I created the background, with a stencil I've never used before. I do not use an adhesive for my stencile, just pinning them down with my hands and some washi tape. What do you use? 

So to finish off I heatembossed a sentiment from create a smile and sticked the picture in the center with some foamadhesive.

I really love how it turned out, but now it's your turn. 
Happy crafting πŸ˜πŸ’—πŸ˜

Basteltraum Challenge #97 Love

First of all Happy New Year!
And it's time for a new challenge. After a busy card making season during christmas time, where I've done over 40 christmas cards, I was really up to something simple. 

The theme from the #97 basteltraum challenge is all about love. And here is my card πŸ’—

I created this simple background by colour blending and coloured in the dino with copic markers. The sentiments were stamped out with archival ink and heat embossed with clear WOW Embossing Powder. 

I totally love the simplicity of this card!πŸ’— And I'm looking forward seeing your projects! 
Happy Crafting

Basteltraum Challenge #95 Winter

It's beginning to look a lot like.... no we're not introducing christmas song. Here is a new challenge on bastel-traum blog. 

We finally heading towards christmas so lets go with winter cards in first place. 🌟

And because we're often hustle in this time of the year, here's a simple card to make.

In first place I decorated all bits and pieces I needed for the card. I decided to go for coloring white paper instead of using design paper instead (except the front pannels). 

Then I just assembled the whole card with liquid glue and there it is... 😍

Cute but still elegant 😍 I totally fell in love with this shutter card dies of lawn fawn, because you can create fantastic cards but they are assembled really simple and fast.

Now it's your turn 😍 looking forward to seeing your crafty projects. 

Happy crafting πŸ’—

Basteltraum Challenge #93 Fall

 Hello everybody!πŸ’–

Warm summer days are slowly fading, first trees getting colourful leaves so it's time for another challenge! Nothing suits better than fall cards. 

I had way too many ideas for suitable cards so I created two of them.

Hedgehog under leaves!

In the first step, I created the magic iris and placed the leaves on it which I marked with a pencil.

Then I placed the sausage part in my stamping tool to stamp the leaves on it.

Colouring with my Copic markers.

The finished iris.

Then I created the background with the magic iris add on. I just layered the leaves randomly.

For the centre, I layered a hedgehog on leaves.

So now just colouring-in and putting everything together. 


Squirrels in the tree!

First I created the background, with just simple layering and colouring with Copic markers and blending brushes.

Then I assembled the iris in the first place and stamped on it afterwards. I used a pencil as well for marking where to stamp. 

Colouring, assembling, finished!


So now it's your turn, looking forward to your projects on Bastel Traum Challenge
Happy crafting!
