72h Mouse Challenge - Gerda Steiner Designs / and happy birthday Create a Smile

Hello all,

as promised I'm back with a few new creations. First of all, a card for the 72h Mouse Challenge from Gerda Steiner Designs.

And this is what I came up with...

I have printed this digital stamp onto Neenah Solar white paper and colored the little one with Delta Markers. The stamp which says "Happy Birthday" in german and the enamel dots are from the new Create a smile collection. I really love this new stamp set and it is great together with Gerdas sweet stamp :-)


I finished him of with a few whiskers, a white dot from my gel pen on his nose and a bit of glossy accent for the balloon.

Have a nice sunday!

I'm too late...

Hello all,

unfortunately I'm too late for Gerda Steiners 6 week challenge, but I will show you the cards anyway!

It is defenitely too hot here in Switzerland - so I didn't create that much in the last view weeks...

But hopefully I will be back with new creations as soon as possible!

So and here are my cards:

And here the other one...

Wish you a good day!

72h Weekend Challenge

Dear all,

Gerda has invited for a 72h weekend challenge with a lovely little Birthday-phant...

And here is my idea for this sweet little one...

I created a birthday card on a kind of turquoise background which I found in a card pack from Tchibo. I printed a few elephants on Neenah Solar White paper and colored them with Delta Marker.
Afterwards I mounted the white piece and the sentiment on some fun foam, to get a bit of dimension.

And this is the inside...

Sorry for the bad photo quality, but my boyfriend went on a motorcycle trip over the weekend and has taken the camera with him :-)

Wish you all a great weekend


Stempel: Digi Stamp from Gerda Steiner Designs, sentiments from SSS "Big Birthday Wishes"
Farben: Delta Marker
Papier: cardbase and envelope from a Tchibo package, Neenah Solar White paper

Gerda Steiner Designs - "Reading-monster" bookmarks

Dear all,

today I will show you more about my little "Lese-Monster" / "Reading-monsters" which I made a few weeks ago. I have used these adorable monsters from Gerda Steiner Designs, but you can use any motiv you like to put on the bookmarks.
This is also a great way to get rid of all the left over paper...

I have printed the stamps onto neenah paper and colored them with Delta Marker and added a few enamel dots finish them.

I have fuzzy cut them, but if you have a Silhouette Cameo, you can also use the mashine to cut them out can also use some googly eyes for them :-)

And here are they all together :-)

Have a nice whitsun weekend!

CAS for the Stinkin' Cute May challenge from Gerda Steiner Designs

Hallo zusammen,

kennt ihr das auch, manchmal wenn man einen Stempel sieht, will einem so gar nichts dazu einfallen... und ein anderes Mal, sieht man den Stempel und hat sofort ein Bild im Kopf und im Idealfall auch gleich einen passenden Spruch zur Hand...
Tja und das ist mir mit dem kleinen Kerl von der Mai challenge von Gerda Steiner Designs passiert. Ich wusste genau, dieser Spruch muss es sein... diesen Monat mal auf Deutsch :-)
did you know that - sometimes when you see a stamp, you don't really get any kind of inspiration. And on an other day, you have already pictures and in the best case a sentiment already in your mind, when seeing a new stamp - and this was happening to me with this cute littly skunk from Gerda Steiner Designs for the may challenge - this month with a german sentiment which means "stinkin' cute"

Und hier nun das kleine Stinktier, dass ich mit Caran d'Ache Classiccolor wasservermalbaren Farbstiften koloriert habe.
Der Hintergrund ist mit der Peacock feather Distress Ink von Tim Holtz entstanden und der Spruch stammt aus dem "Frühlingsgefühle" Set von Stampin' UP - na wenn das nicht passt :-)
I colored him with Caran d'Ache water-soluble pencils and created the background with peacock feather distress ink from Tim Holtz. The sentiment is from the "bloomin marvelous" set from Stampin' UP. 

Ich wünsche Euch eine wundervolle Woche und hoffentlich bald wieder etwas mehr Sonne - zumindest hier in der Schweiz... 
Wish you all a wonderfull week and hopefully a bit more sunshine here in switzerland!

Trying to be a part of the team...

Dear all,

I'm applying for the Design Team Call from Gerda...

So today I'm showing you a birthday card which I created with the stamps from the great and sweet "Heavy Friends" - Clearstamp Set by Gerda Steiner Designs. 

For the background I used my new "Dot fade" stencil by Tim Holtz with the distress inks faded jeans, stormy sky and broken china. I love this stencil!!! The whale is colored with Delta markers and for the side I used the stencil with versamark ink and clear embossing powder.

Have a nice week,

Coffee Girl - April's Challenge by Gerda Steiner Designs

Dear all,

it's me again. After quite a long time - sorry for that!

I just had so much to do for the "Koffermarkt". Which actually went quite well!
But I did not forget my input for the April's challenge from Gerda Steiner Designs. This month we have the "little coffee girl"... 

I created a card with left overs from one of the monthly card kits from Simon Says Stamp. I used the Simon Says Stamp COFFEE CUP Craft die for the shaker part and a sentiment from the "What's brewing" stamp set. The sequins in the shaker were also part of the monthly kit.

Wish you all a sunny sunday!

Flying Easter-Bunny

Hello all,

heute mal wieder nur kurz eine Karte - ich stecke immernoch in den Vorbereitungen für den Koffermarkt.
Puh - da muss man an ganz schön viel denken... 
today just a card - I'm still in the preparation for the Koffermärt. There is really a lot to do...

Diese Karte ist die letzten Tage entstanden. Als Vorlage dafür habe ich den folgenden Sketch Cas(e) this sketch #116 benutzt und werde sie bei der Addicted to CAS challenge #60-CUTE melden.
This card just jumped from my desk last week. Therefore I have used the CAS(E) this sketch # 116 and will send it to the Addicted to CAS challenge #60 - CUTE...

Gerda Steiner Designs - March challenge entry

Hello all,

this is my 2nd blog entry for today...
This will be my entry for the March challenge from Gerda Steiner Designs...

Next time I will not give the little one some whiskers... But I would not make the card over...

The background is made after Jennifer McGuires video about Ink Layering. But I used a stamp instead of a stencil.
I printed the Digi stamp on watercolor paper and colored the scene with my Delta Markers, cut it out and put it with fun foam on a piece of white paper.
I added the "Hello Spring" sentiment from Gerdas Hello Spring stamp set and a few sequins to finish the card.

I will also enter this card to the Addicted to CAS challenge #59 - GREEN - although this card is not really clean and simple...

Have a nice evening,

Gerda Steiner designs - January's Challenge - Dachshund in Love

Hallo zusammen,

ganz langsam wird meine Erkältung besser und da ich heute "völlig überraschend" eine Bestellung von Simon Says Stamp bekommen habe, musste ich doch gleich mal ein paar Sachen ausprobieren... und es steht auch noch mein Beitrag zur Januar Challenge von Gerda Steiner Designs aus...

My cold is SLOWLY getting better, but due to the fact that "totally unexpected" I received today my Simon Says Stamp order, I had to try out some things...and my input for the January Challenge from Gerda Steiner Desings was still pending - so there he is, my "Dachshund in love"...

Darum hier nun also mein "Dachshund in Love" :-)

Die Karte ist 4x4 inch gross... Ich habe dafür Vanille Papier von Stampin' Up als Kartenbasis verwendet. Darauf ein Stück Patern Papier aus dem "What a Hoot" 6"x6" Pack von trimcraft, ich habe darunter ein Stück Fun Foam benutzt (der war Teil meiner Bestellung). Der Dachshund ist ein Digi-Stamp von Gerda Steiner Designs den ich mit Tim Holtz Distress Markern coloriert habe.
My cardbase is 4"x4" and made out of very vanilla paper from Stampin' Up. Next I used  a piece of patern paper out of the "what a hoot" 6"x6" paper pack from trimcraft. I attachd it with a piece of fun foam (which was part of my order). The dog is the digi-stamp for the challenge from Gerda Steiner Designs and colored with Tim Holtz Distress Markers.

Auf das Herz habe ich noch ein wenig Stickles Glitter Leim Frostes Lace und Ranger Embossing Powder Enchanted Gold gegeben und das ganze dann mit einer Schicht Glossy Accent überzogen, da die Blätter auf dem Papier schon von sich aus so glitzern...
Onto the heart I added a little bit of Stickles Glitter Leim Frostes Lace and Ranger Embossing Powder Enchanted Gold to reach the same shimmer as the leaves on the pattern paper already had.

Den Hund habe ich mit Abstandsklebeband befestigt. Der Text ist ein Stempel aus der "Favorite Flowers" Serie von SSS, den ich mit SSS weisser Pigment Tinte auf ein Stück Vellum gestempelt habe...
I used foam pads to attach the dog. The sentiment is a stamp from the SSS "Favorite Flowers" series, stamped with SSS white pigment ink onto Vellum.

Und mit diesen Bildern wünsche ich Euch noch einen schönen Freitag Abend und ein schönes Wochenende, Euer Bastel-Troll
With these pictures I wish you all a nice friday evening and afterwards a great weekend, your Bastel-Troll

Neues Jahr - neues Glück

Hallo zusammen,

schön, dass Ihr den Weg auf meinen Blog gefunden habt. Ich hoffe ihr seid gut in das neue Jahr gestartet.
I'm glad you found your way to my blog and I hope you had a great start into 2015!

Ich starte dieses Jahr mit dem Januar Kit von Simon Says Stamp und den Perfect Pearls. Mein erster Versuch ging gleich mal nach hinten los und darum sind die Perfect Pearls auf dieser winterlichen Karte nur als Schatten von meinem Schriftzug zu sehen - aber hey, das sieht doch eigentlich gar nicht mal sooo schlecht aus oder?
I'm starting this year with the january kit from Simon Says Stamp and the Perfect Pearls which are included in this kit. My first try was more like a "trial and error". This is the reason, why the Perfect Perals are more like a shadow behind my sentiment - but hey it doesn't looks that bad... 

hier nochmal grösser - es schimmert super schön! 
a little bit closer - what a great shimmer effect !

und ich habe zum ersten Mal den super süssen Winter Bunny von Stacey Yacula Studio den ich via Purple Onion Designs bestellt habe verwendet. Koloriert habe ich ihn mit Tim Holtz Distress Markern.
and I used the Winter Bunny from Stacey Yacula Studio which I ordered from Puple Onion design for the first time - so sweet! I colored him with Tim Holtz Distress Markers.

Da ich die Perfect Pearls und den Stempel zum ersten Mal verwendet habe, passt diese Karte wunderbar zu den beiden Challenges: 
due to the fact that I used the Perfect pearls and the stamp for the first time, I think these cards are perfect for the following two challenges
- Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Something New
- The Mixed Media Card challenge: #7 New

und das Winterthema dann zu diesen Beiden: 
and with the winter theme goes great with:
- Stempelküche-challenge #10: Alles geht
- Stempelgarten-challenge #33: Winterfreuden

Ich wünsche Euch noch ein wunderbares Wochenende wish you all a great weekend
Euer Bastel-Troll
