AIR Project: Halloween Shaker Card






Hi everyone and happy Monday :)

I hope you enjoyed the weekend and had a great start into the new week!

Today it's my turn again to create a card for and post on the Imagine Crafts blog, again :)
Some of the AIRs (like me) were asked to create a Halloween card. Oh *yes* please!
Because, even though we don't celebrate Halloween like my friends in the US do, here in Germany, I am hooked by all things Halloween! I just love this time of year and love creating Halloween cards and other projects :)
Therefore I decided to create a shaker card... and I hope you like it (and I hope the step-by-step instructions incl. pictures over on the Imagine Crafts blog are understandable and helpful)
I would love to hear from you, whether you liked and understood the instruction or have more questions?

one more...


Hi everyone and happy Sunday :)

Remember my yesterday post with the lovely Christmas tree stamp from Memory Box stamped with Encore! Champagne?

Well, today I have another super simple Christmas card I want to share with you. Again it is made with products from Memory Box and Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko: This time I used the adorable ornament die from Memory Box and colored the cut out ornaments with Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko Delicata Shimmery Silver ink with the help of a Sponge Dauber.

After the ink was completely dry (I did NOT heat set it, because the wonderful Delicata inks look best when you allow them to dry by air!) I adhered it to the card front. I stamped the sentiment stamp (also from Memory Box) with Delicata Shimmery Silver.
To finish the card I simply added some blue rhinestones here and there and a love ribbon trim  from May Arts, and that's it!

Super quick and easy... perfect for mass production :)

Don't forget to check out the Imagine Crafts blog for many more wonderful projects featuring Memory Box together with Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko products!

It's The Most Wonderful Time...




Hi everyone and happy Saturday :)

I am very excited to share this card with you! The "Artists In Residence" from Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko were sent some lovely products from Memory Box and it was a great pleasure to use their stamps together with the awesome Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko inks - such a great match :)

I have used the stamps: "Snowy Tree" and "Wonderful Time" from Memory Box together with Encore! metallic inks in "Champagne".

I know it's a very unusual color combo for a Christmas card, but I loved the result anyway.

Step-by-step instructions, a detailed supply list and more gorgeous and inspirational Memory Box/Imagine Crafts+Tsukineko projects can be found on the Imagine Crafts blog!


BTW: I also did a card in the same way but with white, smooth cardstock. Looks beautiful shimmery IRL (but is hard to catch properly in a picture)


Oh and don't forget to stop by again, because I will have another card made with Memory Box / Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko products, which is very different from this one, but still CAS ;-)

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope to see you here on my blog again, soon :)

How's It Growing?



Hi everyone and happy Friday :)

A very quick post today to share a card that I made by following this weeks sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch. But I rotated the sketch 90° clockwise

I have used the Stitched Border Die Trio from Whimsy Stamps on the left side, then glued a strip of patterned paper onto the inside of the card.

The sentiment (inked with Versafine in Onyx Black) and the pot of sunflowers (inked with Memento inks) are all from the "In the Garden" stamp set from Clearly Whimsy Stamps. 

I drew the stems with a Memento Marker in Pear Tart (ha! that's cool... I normally am not able to draw a straight line, but since stems are curved, it worked *lol*)

The pot was stamped, cut out and then I glued the upper part of it to the card front and let the lower part of it overlap.
