Task For Two Tuesday #5

Hallo ihr Lieben! 

Heute ist wieder Task For Two Tuesday!
Time for our Task For Two Tuesday!

In der letzten Woche haben wir mit unseren Sketches ja ausgesetzt, um euch unsere Karten zu zeigen, die wir aus den gesendeten Materialen gestaltet haben. Das hat super duper viel Spaß gemacht, aber heute gibt es wieder einen "normalen" Task und dieser kam heute von mir. Ich hoffe euch fällt jetzt nicht so auf, dass es tatsächlich unserem ersten Task sehr ähnlich sieht... oh oh! Was mich da wohl geritten hat!

*** Bestempelt deinen Hintergrund mit Inks ***
- Create a stamped background using Inks -

Hier habe ich endlich mal wieder die Katzen von My Favorit Things "I knead you" rausgelassen! Die kleinen Pfötchen auf dem Hintergrund sind aus Mama Elephants "Playful Pups" und gestempelt mit den neuen Lawn Fawn Inks. 

Und nun hüpft fix mit mir rüber zur lieben Birka und schaut was sie so gezaubert hat :)
Let's see what Birka created! 

Ihr könnt mitmachen!

Wanna participate in that fun? Share your creations using our sketch and requirements! We would be thrilled to see what you guys create! ;)

Lawnscaping Coffee Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Lawnscaping June Blog Hop!

What a special day for me and all the participants. I feel so honored to get the chance of participating in that BIG fun event! :)
And COFFEE is all we think about! Take one piece of Lawnscaping charme, one bit of well flavored Coffee and get a whole package of Happiness! Grab your cup of Coffee and hop along with us!

Be sure to leave some comment love on the hoppers blogposts to win some awesome prizes! And with prizes, I mean: LOTS of prizes!

The winners will be announced on the Lawnscaping blog later next week. For more informations, head over to Lawnscaping Challenges :)

So let's jump into the crafty coffee fun!
I created 3 cards within the theme COFFEE, featuring some of my most favorite Lawn Fawn products!

I mainly used "Love you a Latte" on this card! I colored the coffee-to-go cups with Polychromo pencils in various rainbow colors. Then I used different Distress Inks to create a watercolor background and the splashed water dots above the cups. As a finishing touch, I stamped the cute little hearts from this stamp set on the water dots and added the "thank you" sentiment from "So much to say" on the bottom.

That card runs under the slogan "don't be too shy to try something new" (at least a famous german slogan..). I wasn't really successful with no-line coloring in the past, but this one worked much better! I stamped several images from "Love you a latte" on my background with a really light Ink and colored them - without using lines - with copic markers. The Pattern Paper is from Lawn Fawns "Beachside".

Imagine a Blog Hop Post without a shaker card! No way, haha. I freestyle drew a large coffee cup using the "Love you a latte" stamps as a guide. I really wanted it to look like the original stamp. I put a few stamped cups and coffee bones plus some golden sequins in it. The fore background is watercolored with Distress Inks and the pattern paper behind is from Lawn Fawns "Let's Polka, mon amie". I stamped and embossed the sentiments "I'm so thankful" and "for you" (Lawn Fawn: "Happy Feast") next to each other on a piece of brown cardstock.

And that's it from me today! Let's go and see what the others have created!

Love is in the air!

Love is in the air! Can you feel it?

Hello and Welcome to our Blog Hop featuring JessicaLynnOriginal's new True Love Stamp Set! 
Celebrate all things love with this versatile clear stamp set. Perfect for weddings, Valentine’s Day, Sweetest Day or just showing that special someone you are thinking about them, this set is great alone or used with other sets. The phrasing and butterflies will fit in the banner or use your imagination! 
If you came here from Jessica's blog, then you're in the right place. 
I immediately fell in love when I first saw all the beautiful elements in this stamp set! I thought about Valentines day next year and lots of great ideas came to my mind. But for now, I wanted to show you some inspiration to use this set in spring or summer season. Central theme was kind of "Rainbow Colors". So be prepared for lots and lots of colors! :)

 I stamped the great big clear stamp "love"four times on a piece of craft paper. I colored them with my Polychromo pencils and to get kind of a 3D look, I stamped and colored a few of the butterflies.

This cards background was made out of white embossed flowers and some watercolor on the top of it. I die cut a few balloons and stamped elements from the stamp set on the black balloons and embossed them with white embossing powder. As a finishing touch, I stamped the cute little bug several times on the background flowers and also put some sequins on it.

My last card is a combination of two of my current favorite colors. I really wanted to make a rosé card and mint green was the perfect match for that. I cut all my elements out and placed them on a piece of pattern paper and a soft watercolor background.

Did I already mention prizes? No??? Well! Simply leave a comment on each blog of the hop and be eligible to win a $10 gift certificate to Jessicalynnoriginal.com
The hop continues with Jennifer's blog. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop!

Dino-mite stars and stripes!

Hi Guys!
Time to play along with the new (okay, not new... I'm very late this time) Lawnscaping Challenge!! The current theme is "Stars and stripes" in honor of the upcoming 4th of July. As you might know, I'm not from the USA.. though I made my card more suitable for other occasions. Buuuuuut I used at least the right colors! :)
Critters from the past was and still is one of my most favorite stamp sets from Lawn Fawn. I haven't used it for a while, so it was time to let the dinosaurs out again. Oh! And btw: Jurassic World started last week in our german cinemas!

The dinosaur and the palm tree are colored with copics and the speech bubble (Lawn Fawn "Into the woods") is stamped with Lawn Fawndamentals "Cranberry". I stamped and embossed some little stars on the small background and colored it with Distress Inks and water afterwards. 
I drew some red stripes on a watercolor paper and splashed (is that a word?!) water on it to get this great watercolored look. I hope that you can see that there were originally stripes! :D


Task For Two Tuesday #4

Guten Morgen zur bereits vierten Ausgabe unseres Task For Two Tuesday!
Wow, ich kann es gar nicht glauben, dass wir bereits seit einem Monat dabei sind. Herzlichen Glückwunsch zum ersten Monatstag, liebe Birka :)

Für den heutigen Task haben wir uns etwas ganz Besonderes einfallen lassen! Nämlich kam uns die Idee doch mal "Supply sharing" zu veranstalten und dem anderen ein paar kleine nette Utensilien zu schicken. Diese Utensilien durften dann ausschließlich für die Karte, oder in unserem Fall sogar die ZWEI Karten zu verwenden! Hihi!
Also möchte ich euch nicht vorenthalten welche tollen Sachen mir Birka geschickt hat:

Sooooooooooo viel Rosa und Pink! Hach, lässt das mein kleines Mädchenherz höher schlagen. Sonst traue ich mich ja nie freiwillig an solche schnieken Farben, aber nun MUSS ich sie ja benutzen und das ist so super toll.. da möchte ich glatt die alten frisierten Barbies wieder rausholen.

Aber genug! Jetzt wollen wir endlich zu den Kärtchen hüpfen. Die Birka hat mir so viele tolle Sachen geschickt, da war ich quasi gezwungen zwei Karten zu machen. Und selbst nach den beiden hatte ich immer noch einige Sachen über, die wirklich gerne mit auf die Karten gehüpft wären :( aber nunja!

Hier ist Nummer eins:

Ich habe die schönen Papiere mit meinen Die Cuts ein wenig bearbeitet um daraus ein pinkes Einhörner Wunderland zu machen. Die Wood Veneer Balloons wurden am Faden befestigt und tragen nun das bunte Einhorn davon. Sieht man das glitzernde Wink of Stella auf der bunten Mähne???

Und nun zu meiner zweiten Kreation:

 Habe ich schonmal erwähnt, dass ich Kraftpapier liebe? Über alles? Es lässt sich so wundervoll mit bunten, quietschigen Farben verbinden!

Ich hoffe euch hat der kleine Ausflug ins pinke Wunderland gefallen! Dann springt nun mit mir rüber zu Birka und schaut was sie so aus meinen Utensilien gemacht hat :) Oh ich bin so gespannt!
