My favorite Things "YETI"

At this time runs by My favorite things more than one challenge... The challenge for me is, to made a card, with only material from this company... I haven't any inks from them so I decided me to use a light one for the no line technique and my Distress ink mini cube for a rainbow background.

So I began to color with my Prismacolor Pencils... At first I think I made a scene with all Yeti's but I think two will be enough for a Clean and Simple card :)

I love the cute little Yeti's... I add google eyes to them... The best will come... What for a beautiful sentiment... I am a christian, so I know who will come :) Because of that holds the one Yeti a star in the hand...

This cards play's with follow challenge:

#57 Tic Tac Toe

Heute startet wieder eine neue Herausforderung bei
Today starts a new challenge by

baste-traum/ BLOG

Diesmal geht es ums Thema Tic Tac Toe. Eine Karte, ein Bild oder eine Geschenkbox... aber auch eine Einladung zum Essen, ins Kino, echt... Wie zeigst Du auf Papier, dass Du jemanden magst, welches Motiv wirst Du wählen? Ich bin schon ganz gespannt, auf Deine Inspiration.

This time it goes around the theme Tic Tac Toe. A card, a picture or a giftbox... but why not a invitation to a restaurant/ in cinema/ etc.... Now I am curious, how will you show your friend your friendship/ love on paper? Which scene will you use?  I am glad to see your inspiration...

Dies ist meine Inspiration.

Gerda Steiner hat zwei tolle Stempelsets, welche ich hier zeigen möchte (Party Animals, Go Wild)
Ich habe mich entschieden zwei oben gezeigte Rezepte zu benutzen... es gibt unzählige Möglichkeiten

This is my inspiration.

Gerda Steiner have two great stamp sets, which I show here (Party Animals/ Go Wild).
I decided me to made two cards, so I can show you two different cards... you can see, you have a lot of possibilities.

Clean & Simple/ Gold/ Stencil
From the Whole Zoo, happy birthday to you... die Tiere passen sehr gut zu diesem Spruch, um möglichst viel Tiere auf die Karte zu bekommen, habe ich die Masking Technik verwendet. Anschliessend habe ich diese mit meinen Zig Real Bruches ausgemalt.  Die goldenen Streifen habe ich mit Novo Mousse Gold über einen Stencil von MF T auf die Karte gebracht.

From the whole Zoo, hubby birthday to you... the critter are awesome and fits perfect to this sentiment. I used the masking technique, that I can stamp more animals to this card. I colored all with my ZIG real brushes. With my NUVO Mousse gold over an MFT stencil I made the stripes on this card... 

Punkte (dots)/ niedlich (cute) design/ Stencil

Punkte (dots)/ niedlich (cute) design/ Stencil

Meine andere Karte habe ich mit beiden Stempelsets gemacht. Ich habe zuerst das Auto mit den Tieren gestempelt (erneut mit Masking Technik), ausgemalt (ZIG Real brush) und ausgeschnitten. Mit einen Stencil von Mode Scrap habe ich den Hintergrund gemacht, ich habe Texture Paste benutzte, welche ich mit den Distress ink eingefärbt habe, um einen Regenbogeneffekt zu machen. Im Hintergrund habe ich noch ein Papier angebracht, für den Untergrund des Autos... Ich habe das Geburtstags sentiment, leider habe ich vergessen, welche Firma,  dreimal ausgeschnitten, zusammengeklebt, das obere Teil in Versamark  gedrückt und ein glitzerndes  Embossing Pulver benutzt. Das "Happy" kommt von einen Stempel Set von Mama Elephant (Happy Three). Auf das Licht habe ich von Nuvo die im dunkeln leuchtenden Novo Drops Yellow aufgebracht.

Hier is my second card, I used all both stamp set from Gerda Steiner. At first I stamped again with masking technique the car and the critters, I color it with my ZIG Real Brushes and cut it with my scissors. The background I made with a stencil from Moda Scrap and Texture paste, which I colored with Distress ink, too that I can made a rainbow color effect. I add a paper to the background too. Also I cut out a birthday Sentiment 3 times(I forgot which company), I glue this together and the last I used Versamark and glitter embossing... The happy comes from the stamp set (Hayyp Threes from Mama Elephant)... To the lights I add glowing in the dark yellow from Nuvo.

Aquarelle Chimpanzee

Since a while ago I search time for made a draw... As I was young, before I know cardmaking I draw picture with pencils or Acryl... this was years ago, before I was a mum :)

Yesterday I decide me to try it again, but I want to play with my Aquarelle from LUKAS

...and this is the result from my drawing...

How I do this kind of art?
I searched a picture from an chimpanzee and choose the paper (Boesner aquarelle 300). After than I made a sketch with a soft pencil, so I can erase lines... 
... and this is like mine sketch look's...

...after than I look to a color scheme (brown, grey and black colors for the fur/ yellow, ocher, orange and grey tones for the skin/ green, blue tones for the background)...
I start to play with the colors and the brushes and start this journey :)

I try to bring in shadows and lights... to bring live into the picture... a mother with her baby... a moment with a lot of joy :) So I layered also the picture... I bring color and more color and end this picture with a friendly and easy background... the last I add with my Prismapencils a few accents... 

I hope you like it too, maybe you try your own drawing.. . and if you made your own one, than I will be honored if you send me the link in the comments below :)

Hugs and greetings... Ute

I play with this picture in follow challenge :

Lawn Fawn Fall Scene

This time I made a fall scene with the new products fromLawn Fawn...

How I do this card?

  1. I prepare the Die cuts for the background, used "Stitched Hillside Backdrops: Portrait"
  2. Now I used different Distress Oxide Ink for made the night sky and the grass...
    moon: fossilized amber and wild honey
    night sky: seedless preserve, salty ocean, black soot
    grass: lucky clover, walnut stain and black soot 
    I decide later, that I also use the Grassy Hillside Borders, also I used lucky clover ink...
  3. I stamped all images on my paper with a light ink (I prefer SSS Barley Beige, get this with a kit, but you can buy it separately..). If you haven't it, so you can use any light ink, but it must work with the color medium you used. ( Used follow stamps: "Happy Hauting and Costume Party")
  4. Now it comes the fun coloring part... I can't say what names of the color my Prismapencils had, because mostly I look with my eyes and decide spontan. I try the no line technique. Isn't it cute?
  5. After coloring I hand cut the images and glue it to the card.
  6. I add a Sentiment, also from a Lawn Fawn stamp set (Woodgrain Backdrops) and embossed this in white.
  7. At last I add googly eyes and glitter to the kids costumes... also the stars with a silver gelpen.
I bought all my items from Check the shop... :) or use your prefer shop...

Lawn Fawn Winter Scene

Today I worked on a winter scene with Lawn Fawn Products... 

I used first the Die "Stitched Hillside Backdrops: Landscape" to prepare the card. After than I used the Distress ink "tumbled Glass" and a cloud mask to made the sky... I add birds from the Hero Art Monthly kit. I decide me to bring mountain to this card, so I cut one mountain (Stitched Mountain Borders" strip to a white paper... With the Distress ink Oxide "iced spruce" I colored them, with my Distress tool, a little bit water, at finish the snow tops...Noe the bear family form the new release "Beary Happy Holidays" also the sentiment.

Now I put all together... and bring a little dimension in the card.

If you haven a US Letter Paper, than you can also use an A4 Paper, cut at 5,5 Inch and Score 4 1/4 Inch... Now you will miss a little paper, because A4 (EU) isn't so big, like the US Letter... I cover the inside with a strip of patterns orange paper, so I have inside an accent :)

Paper Smooches Monster Card

I made today a new card, used an background I made yesterday... for my scene. 

In the last time I used often the no line technique and I want to try how it's look with the monster stamp, that I used today (Paper Smooches Stamp Set "Falling For You" and "Chilly Chums"

What do you think?

How I made this card?

At first I cut out my background (2x), I used dies from Simon Say Stamps"Bundle of stitched frames",  After than I used my Distress Ink Oxide "twisted citron" and "salty ocean". The green on I cut again with the Stitched Border Die from Whimsy Stamps and on the blue I add with an Stencil from Willy and Walter "Big Bang Classic Star Creative" a few stars with the same ink, worked before. Now I used a white piece cardstock and distress this with Oxide "Vintage Photo". I let this ink dry, before I cut again the tree's. My tree Die comes from Lawn Fawn "Stitched Tree Borders". So I cut out the wooden tree's and from the remain of the green one the leaves for the trees... Now I work again on my sky background, I used the white golden Glimmer mist from Hero Arts (last monthly kit), to add a shimmer look. Again I have to wait till dry. Than I put all together and add it to my card.... My background is now finish....

Now the critters... I stamped both on white cardstock, I use mostly "Mix Media Imagine" from Canson and the Versafine onxy black ink. First I colored the images with the Dirsterss Oxide ink (monster-> twisted citron, bird ->fossilized amber and spiced marmalade)... at least I used my Prismacolor Pencil to give a better finished look.

Now I bring the critters to the background and add all to a clean white A2 card.

I love the sentiment so much and think it fits perfectly (embossed this with Ranger Liquid Platin Powder).

Do you love Papersmooches Stamps too? Now you have a change to win a gift card... How please look at this blog (click here)


Thanks for stoping by and visit my blog and for all your lovely comments :)

This card play's also by the current  PS Challenge "Anything goes"...

Camp Create Bonus: Gather ‘Round the Campfire was a long day, but after working I have to made the last card from the current Camp Create, the BONUS card...

I tried the Ombrè technique, but at the bunnies are not so really possible... 

I used for this card the stamp set "Strike the Band", also a die from Mama Elephant and Stitched Border from Whimsy Stamps... I colored all with my Prismacolor Pencils. The ink in the background comes from Tim Holtz Distress Oxide...
