Papierturnier Bloghop Easter

Hello and Thank you for stopping by!!!
Today I´m taking part again in the Papier Turnier Bloghop which means Paper Tournament :)  Judith from Austria organised this Bloghop that takes place every 2nd Thursday of the month. As Judith was very busy at the awesome Onstage event ( she did an amazing job by the way) Sonja took over and organised it for this month .




 You´re probably arriving from Janina or maybe you´re starting on my blog. Make sure to visit all of the blogs to get the full inspiration and ideas from all the very creative ladies taking part.

This month´s theme for the bloghop is Easter. As I showed you  a bunch of cards during the last bloghops I decided to go for a 3D object of an easter goodie that I made for my colleages and my SU team sister Eva from Heldenstempel( She did an amazing job at Onstage presenting as well).

My Easter Goodie this year is a testtube holder filled with yummy chocolate easter eggs. This one in the picture is made from daffodil delight cardstock that I cut, punched and scored to fit my testtubes that I got from amazon ( so happy I finally got to use them after months of owning them).

 The bottom part I covered with diecut grass in Old olive that I sponged on the edges to look a little more 3D. On top came a little bunny from the Basket bunch stampset that I diecut with the fitting Basket Builder framelits. A little color on the cheeks, the bow and the ears using my trusty Stampin´write markers and my bunny was good to go ( to hide some eggs in that testtube lol).

The long piece on the back of the holder was punched with the scalloped Tag topper punch and then I stamped the easter egg line from the basked  bunch stampset in Daffodil delight to give the tube a fitting background.
On top of the tag topper I used some retired mossy meadow stitched satin ribbon and tied a knot and to repeat it I used t on the top of the testubes as well to give it a little continious line.  



 Under the ribbon I placed an oval that I cut with the stitched shapes framelits ( just love the stitched look) and stamped a german saying from the basket bunch  stampset and adhered it with some dimensionals to make it pop from the top.
 I´m very pleased how this project turned out. I made it in a few different colors and all my colleagues liked it a lot. If you want a tutorial for this project please comment down below and let me know and I will work on one.

Now have fun with the Blog Hop and have a look what the other lovely ladies created  :)

Papierturnier Bloghop Goodbye Incolors 2015-17

Hello and Thank you for stopping by!!!
Today I´m taking part again in the Papier Turnier Bloghop which means Paper Tournament :)  Judith from Austria organised this Bloghop that takes place every 2nd Thursday of the month.



 You´re probably arriving from Sonja Zöhrer or maybe you´re starting on my blog. Make sure to visit all of the blogs to get the full inspiration and ideas from all the very creative ladies taking part.

This month´s theme for the bloghop is a Colour Challenge. The colors we chose for this bloghop are the soon to be retirering Stampin´Up! Incolors 2015-17.

I picked Watermelon Wonder, Tip Top Taupe and Mint Macaron for my card. I started with a whisperwhite cardbase and layered it with a piece o Tip Top Taupe. On the right side of the cardstock I taped down some watermelone wonder stripped washitape from the Tasty treats suite.

 

I then took a piece of whisper white and stamped the flower of the Gift of Love Hostess set in Tip top taupe and filled the image in with mint macaron leaves and watermelon wonder flowers.


On the bottom of the flower I stamped the birthday sentiment from the german Balloon Celebration ( Partyballons) in black.
 


I layered the stamped image  on a piece of mint macaron cardstock and that one on another piece of watermelon wondercardstock.

 

I also added a little bling in form of some sequins and my card was ready to go and will be gven to the recipient by my mom as it will be a birthdaycard for her colleague.

Papierturnier Bloghop Valentine's Day


Hello and Thank you for stopping by!!!
Today I´m taking part again in the Papier Turnier Bloghop which means Paper Tournament :)  Judith from Austria organised this Bloghop that takes place every 2nd Thursday of the month. Because of the business of Christmas we are one week late.
 
You´re probably arriving from Peggy or maybe you´re starting on my blog. Make sure to visit all of the blogs to get the full inspiration and ideas from all the very creative ladies taking part.
 This month´s theme for the bloghop is Valentine´s Day, which will be here already next week.

 
I started with a  extra thick Whisper white cardbase and put a layerof Rose red cardstock and a piece  of shimmery white cardstock on top of it on which I brushed on a watercolor wash using Melon Mambo ink. 

 

My next step was to take a piece of the SAB 3/8" Metallic ribbon in gold and used my waterbrush to color it melon mambo just like the wash on the paper. the gold lines shine through which gives it a really nice effect. This way you can customize the ribbon any color you want to fit your project.

 
I weaved the ribbon through two diecutted hearts from the Sunshine Wishes Die-set. I cut one heart from whisper white cardstock and covered it in wink of stella and also added a layer of crystal effects and the other heart was cut from craft cardstock.
 

For the sentiment is from the Sunshine Sayings stampset which coordinates with the Sunshine Wishes die set. I stamped the "SENDING" in black on white cardstock and cut the edges to look like a little arrow.
 

  I diecutted the word "love" from glimmer paper in gold and adhered both on top of the ribbon. 

 
I used the leftover glimmer paper and punched a few tiny hearts from it with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch and glued them randomly on the card. As last step I sprayed my card with some golden glimmer mist to give it a little more shine.
 Now have fun with the Blog Hop and have a look what the other lovely ladies created  :)

Papierturnier Bloghop SAB (Sale-a-bration)

Hello and Thank you for stopping by!!!Happy New Year everybody!!!!
This year  I´m taking part again in the Papier Turnier Bloghop again which means Paper Tournament :)  Judith from Austria organised this Bloghop that takes place every 2nd Thursday of the month.

 
You´re probably arriving from Melanie or maybe you´re starting on my blog. Make sure to visit all of the blogs to get the full inspiration and ideas from all the very creative ladies taking part.
 This month´s theme for the bloghop is SAB which stands for Sale-A-bration Stampin´s up biggest promotion of the year, where you get a free stampset/Projectset or some embellishments or paper from an exclusive catalog for free for every 60 €  you spend. 

I decided to use the stampset Tasty trucks. I stamped the cute little truck on shimmery white cardstock and colored it with the new Watercolor pencils and then used my watertank brush to smooth out the color. I also stamped some stacked tacos and colored it in as well. Love this little truck, it´s so cute. 

I matted it on a piece of Bermuda bay cardstock. The cardbase is one of the SU note cards you get with envelopes. I stamped and colored some random placed tacos on it so my card will have a nice fitting background. 

On top of that I placed the 3/8 golden metallic ribbon which comes in a combi pack with silver and is also one of the awesome Sale-a-bration products.  I tied the ribbon into a knot and cut off the ends. i think it looks cute as well :)

I popped the truck image up with dimentionals and put it on in an angle to give the card more interest. 

I then stamped the sentiment :" Let´s taco ´bout ow awesome you are" in Bermuda Bay ink and cut it into a flag using my scissors and matted it onto another piece of bermuda bay cardstock and also placed it on the card using dimentionals. 
The last but not least thing I did was to add some bling....can´t go wrong with that, right?. I used bermuda bay colored sequins and put 7 randomly on my card.  tadaaaaaaa

Papierturnier Bloghop Handstanze/Punch

Hello and Thank you for stopping by!!!
Today I´m taking part again in the Papier Turnier Bloghop which means Paper Tournament :)  Judith from Austria organised this Bloghop that takes place every 2nd Thursday of the month.




 You´re probably arriving from Melanie or maybe you´re starting on my blog. Make sure to visit all of the blogs to get the full inspiration and ideas from all the very creative ladies taking part.

This month´s theme for the bloghop is using a punch on a project ( Handstanze in german). This months Bloghop screamed my name soooooooooooooooooo loud it was probably  able to be heard all over the world lol
I´m a huge Punch fan....I have a pretty big collection of punches on my wall and I love to do punchart of all kind or to come up with my own. So there are 5 different punchart elements in this Project.
 

Let´s start with the front of the card. The base is a Soft Suede piece of cardstock, folded in half. On this I matted a piece of pumpkin pie  and on top of this I stamped my own DSP using the maple leafes from the Perpetual Birthday Calender Set and stamped them in crushed curry, pumpkin pie, tangerine Tango, peekaboo peach and real red to create the little kinda ombre effect.

 In the middle I placed a circle in craushed curry that has it´s edges inked, topped by a whisper white circle  that I stamped with small colorful leafes on the bottom. I then stamped punched out a  tree with the Sprinkles on Top stamp set and the tree builder punch and I put the tree crown on dimentionals.
Arround the Circle I stamped Happy Fall with the Layered Letters Alphabet Stampset in Early Espresso Ink.

Now to the fabulous inside of this card. I picked a technique that is pretty on trend right now. The Pop Up Panel card. Voila!!!
I really like these kind of cards eventhough they need a little more work to be put in them but they are totally worth it. So on to my 4 panels that pop up when you open the card. the layers are that the popup panel base is in peekaboo peach and the first matting is again pumpkin pie and then rounded edges in very vanilla and  stamped with the maple leaves again. On to my punchart-buddies

Mr.M.B. Hedgeh-owl

For those that follow my blog for a couple of years this little fellow won´t be a stanger. This little guy runs by the name of Mr. M.B. Hedgeh-owl!!! He was born in 2012 ( 4 years ago wow!)He is made using the Owlpunch. I have an entire blogpost and a written and videotutorial for how to make this little guy and you can find both here. 

Mr. fox



Number two on the panel is this little fox I made using the Fox Builder Punch and the fitting stampset. The eyes are again from the owlpunch. The cardstock is whisper white and pumpkin pie.

the little turk-owl

This little guy isn´t a stanger on this blog either.He is the perfect star for your thanksgiving cards. I even made 2 blogposts on him ( one once again with a video tutorial) and you can find them here and  here . I used the color family DSP for the feathers and i loved how it turned out.

cute little acorn
                   
Last but not least comes the cute little acorn punchart I came up lat year when the acorn builder punch was released together with the Acorny Thank you stampset. Isn´t he just soooooooo cute. I will make a tutorial of how to make him maybe after the awesome Onstage local event I will attend in 23 days. YAY!!! as he will be with me there and many of his siblings :)

Which of my punchcreations is your favourite? Please tell me in the comments below :)

Now have fun with the Blog Hop and have a look what the other lovely ladies created  :)

Papierturnier Bloghop Herbst-Winter Katalog /Holiday catalogue

Hello and Thank you for stopping by!!!
Today I´m taking part again in the Papier Turnier Bloghop which means Paper Tournament :)  Judith from Austria organised this Bloghop that takes place every 2nd Thursday of the month.



 You´re probably arriving from Carola or maybe you´re starting on my blog. Make sure to visit all of the blogs to get the full inspiration and ideas from all the very creative ladies taking part.

This month´s theme for the bloghop is the Holiday catalogue AKA der Herbst-/Winter Katalog.

I decided to make  a fall/autumn project as Christmas is still a little while to go.



 As some of you know I´m a kindergarden teacher and this week I talked to my children at work about fall/autumn and what signs show that it´s about to be this nice colorful season. One of the things are the leaves changing colors, so I put this in my project, let´s see if you can spot it ;) I personally love fall/ autumn as it´s one of my avourite season with the not to hot or cold weather, the wonderful colors and of course my favourite vegetables PUMPKIN!!!


I started off with a cardbase in Pumpkin Pie (hehehehehe) and layered a piece in soft suede on top of it.
On top of that came a piece of selfmade DSP using the Vintage Leaves and once again PumpkinPie ink to stamp them randomly onto the paper. I also sponged some more to make it blend with the cardbase.

Next I diecut 2 banners from soft suede and whister white with the banner framelits. I then stamped acorn tops from the Acorny Thank you stamp set  in Pumpkin Pie ink on the whisper white one and layered it on top of the second banner. On top of that came a scallop circle in the new Pumpkin Pie glimmer paper and put a whisper white circle on top of it.
In the new holiday catalog is a cute new set for halloween and fall/autumn that fits a new builder punch. If you know me , you know that i couldn´t resist but buy this punch for a lot of future projects.

The set I´m talking about is the Cookie-Cutter Halloween set (don´t miss the awesome Cookie cutter christmas set bundle either). I stamped the scarecrow on shimmer white cardstock and colored it with different fall-ish stampin up colors. Then I punched it out using the Cookie Cutter Builder punch and adhered it using a couple of dimentionals. Isn´t he just so cute?!



 I then picked a sentiment from the Acorny Thank you set and bent it a little to fit the Thoughtful banners stamp set and the Banner Duo punch to punch it out. The banner was also adhered with dimentionals and my card was good to go.

What do you think?
Last month I did my first comment-giveaway and the winner was my Stampin Up! Sister Eva from Heldenstempel ( Unfortunately she was the only one that commented). Eva loved her prize though :)
I will give the giveaway another try though hoping to see more comments this time. I won´t tell you the crafty prize as it will be a surprise. To win just leave a comment and I will pick a random winner.


So go ahead and please leave a comment  and let me know what you think :)
Now have fun with the Blog Hop and have a look what the other lovely ladies created  :)
