Candy-Striped Merry Christmas

Hi there,

here is another Christmas Card using the Karten-Kunst Das rockt Frohes Fest die set:

  • create your own striped cardstock using green, red and white cardstock stripes
  • cut out the background from the Karten-Kunst Das rockt Frohes Fest die set from this DIY paper
  • cut out the letters from Neenah Desert Storm kraft cardstock, stamp the Karten-Kunst Sternenschweif with Versamark and heat-emboss it with WOW! Bright White Super Fine embossing powder
  • cut out two green frames and two kraft circles using the Karten-Kunst Small Frames die set
  • stamp images from the Karten-Kunst Mini Frames Christmas into the circles and color them with Spectrum Noir Triblend Markers
  • add little snow dots with a white gel pen
  • cut out a background panel from Neenah Desert Storm kraft cardstock using one of the Karten-Kunst Stitched DIN lang dies
  • cover a cardbase with patterned paper and add the other layers on top
  • use watered-down white gouache to create some splatters

I hope you got inspired.

Winter Stove

Hi there,

starting today I am going to show you an Anjas Basteltraum Project every Sunday in December. This first card features the stove from the Anjas Basteltraum Weihnachtszeit bei Katz und Maus stamp set:

  • stamp the stove from the Anjas Basteltraum Weihnachten bei Katz und Maus set with Distress Oxide Ink Pumice Stone 
  • color the image with watercolors
  • apply Distress Ink Speckled Egg through the Tim Holtz Nordic Layering Stencil
  • add some Distress Ink Gathered Twigs to the wooden floor
  • use a previously made sentiment strip
  • add turquoise foiled cardstock to the left and right side of the panel before adhering it to a cardbase

Have a wonderful Advent Sunday.
