Basteltraum's Challenge #62: Party / Birthday

Hello, fellow crafter!

I hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day and have been treated with some love and maybe some crafting supplies, huh??! :-)))

Today starts a new challenge over at bastel-traum's blog  which is all about party and/or birthday themes... I created this male card for a friend of mine which had his 50th birthday. And he is planning a big bike tour through the USA in 2020 and of course the route 66 will be a part of it... so my design was clear - it had to be something with it :-)

First, I googled for some pics by typing simply Route 66 in the search bar - and voilà, found that great perspective photography. I love the feeling from afar you get when looking at it :-) I grabbed a cross stitch square die and cut out a piece of my print. Then I diecut his name with letter dies by lawnfawn on top and turned it into a shaker card by filling it with micro beads. The sentiment is by inkadinkadoo and is white heat embossed. Here we go - a cool and personalized male birthday card in almost no time (most of the time took me to figure out the design, haha! As always :-) )

I hope you got inspired and you will play along with us!

Happy crafting!

Basteltraum's Challenge #61: Valentine/Love

Hello, crafty friends!!

As it is so much going on this week in my life, I kept my inspiration for you quite simple :-)) This time, bastel-traum's challenge is all about love and Valentine. I colored an image by Love Cynthia with my Copic markers and Polychromos pencils. Then I sponged some white pigment ink onto a craft cardstock piece and adhered the lovely image on the center. The sentiment is heat embossed with white embossing powder. One pink heart finished off my CAS design.  Here we go - that's all!!

Hopefully you will find some time to play along with us!

Have a great week and sending crafty hugs to you,
