Some Baby cards

I was asked to make a card for the birth. Unfortunately, I have absolutely nothing in return. No stamps, no dies or whatever. Luckily, there are at "Stempelhühnerhof" super nice people who help out if worst comes to worst
Ich wurde gebeten eine Karte zur Geburt zu machen. Unglücklicherweise habe ich überhaupt nichts für diesen Anlass. Keine Stempel, keine Stanzen oder was auch immer. Zum Glück gibt es beim Stempelhühnerhof  super nette Menschen, die aushelfen wenn Not am Mann ist.

I asked in the forum if anyone has these "MFT Onesie Die" and would be ready to borrow. And the lovely Antje has sent, no questions asked directly to me. In addition, she sent some of these sweet "BABY" writing die cuts. Ohhh, they are so cute !
Ich fragte im Forum ob jemand diese Strampler Stanze von MFT hat und bereit wäre sie auszuleihen. Und die liebe Antje hat sie ohne wenn und aber sofort an mich verschickt. Zusätzlich bekam ich einige dieser süßen "Baby" Schriftzug Stanzteile. Ohh, die sind super süß !!

I had so much fun and so I have created some more. Then I have some in my stash for boys and girls.
They are all CAS because they are done in a few minutes. I´ve had super matching DP from Simple Stories for the second and last card.
Ich hatte soviel Spass und dabe deshalb gleich mehrere gemacht. Dann habe ich welche in meinem Vorrat für Jungen und Mädchen.

Dear Antje, I hope you like what I did with the die. I thank you very much for your trust and borrowing. You've helped me a lot
Liebe Antje, ich hoffe Dir gefällt was ich mit der Stanze gemacht habe. Ich danke Dir vielmals für Dein Vertrauen und das Ausleihen. Du hast mir sehr geholfen.

Flutterby Friend

By the time i find pleasure  in color challenges. But mostly i just use ink and cardstock. To find a matching Designpaper is still difficult for me.
Mit der Zeit finde ich Gefallen an den Farben Challenges. Meistens benutzte ich allerdings nur Farbkarton und Tinte. Das passende Designpapier zu finden bereitet mir nach wie vor Schwierigkeiten.

Kindly Thanks

Because of my design team work for From the Heart Stamps und many cards with Bugaboo Images in the past, I have neglected my favorite stamp Company :Papertrey Ink. And I definitely had to change this !

So I looked through my collection and used one of my favorites : "Wreath for all Seasons". It´s such a versatile stamp set. It can be used for any opportunities. Love that !

Last week I told you, I'm not good in Color Challenges. And I mean it, it is not easy for me. But I tried it again because Arielle from Color Q always chooses fantastic color combinations.


I would like to enter this challenges too:

Stamps: PTI Wreath for all Seasons, Waltzingmouse Fancy Phrases

Ink:       SU Bermuda Bay, Night of Navy, Lucky Limeade, Cameo Coral

Paper:      SU Bermuda Bay, Night of Navy, Lucky Limeade, PTI Berry Sorbet

Shaker Card with Birdbrain Snowman

I tried a shaker card. It was the first time and thought it's complicated, but it was quite simple. 

Step 1: You have to cut out a frame. I have taken two identical Spellbinders in different sizes.

Step 2: Now you have your frame and you have to cut out your stamped image and your plastic in the same size.

Step 3: Glue the plastic on the back of your frame. Then add double-sided foam adhesive tape on the plastic. Check out that there is no space between, otherwise your glitter fall out.

Step 4: Add glitter in your frame and glue your colored image face down on the frame. 

Step 5: Turn around and shake !! Your shaker frame is done. Now you only have to finish your card/project.

I would be happy to see me many "Shaker Cards" from you. At the end comes the Inlinkz - so, be creative and upload your project !!

Now head over to Jo´s blog and check out her fabulous card/project.

Thanks for hopping with us today. The blog hop will end on Sunday, September 14th at 6am EST. Winners will be posted on the From the Heart Stamps Blog on Wednesday, September 17th.
