One layer birthday card


Hello and welcome. I hope your week is off to a good start so far. 
Here is the card I am sharing today:

 
To make the card, I tried two new techniques (at least for me). 
The first technique I tried is mirror stamping. The second one is “block coloring” (I don´t know how to call it correctly). I didn´t color the actual stamped images but only the background. I have never done this before and felt weird leaving the images uncolored, but I really like the final look of it. To create the background, I used my precious water-color pencils and drew in the clouds, grass and balloon.
I hope you like how my card turned out.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Hugs,

Jinny

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #23 – Try a New Technique (mirror stamping & block coloring)
MFT Color Challenge #88


Hallo und herzlich willkommen. Für die oben gezeigte Karte habe ich zwei (für mich zumindest neue) Techniken ausprobiert. Die erste Technik ist „Mirror Stamping“. Die korrekte Bezeichnung für die zweite Technik ist mir unbekannt, aber ich nenne sie Block Koloration. Dafür habe ich nur den Hintergrund koloriert und die gestempelten Motive ohne jegliche Koloration gelassen. Sehr gewöhnungsbedürftig, aber das Resultat gefällt mir sehr gut. Um den Hintergrund zu gestalten, habe ich mit meinen geliebten Aquarellstiften Wolken, Gräser und den Ballon handgemalt.
Ich hoffe, dass meine Karte euch gefällt.
Danke fürs Vorbeischauen und ich wünsche euch einen wunderschönen Tag!

A welcome card


Hello and welcome. The second card I´m sharing with you today looks like this:




This wonderful word die has been in my stash for a while, but I´ve never used it! So, I colored a piece of watercolor paper using rainbow colors and die cut the word. I die cut the welcome sentiment three times out of white cardstock and stacked them all on each other. I just love the dimension I get this way. I also die cut a piece of vellum and dry-embossed it and put it behind the word die cut. As final touch I added some Stickles and Glossy Accents on it. This kind of card style is something I don´t make often, but I actually really like the finished card and hope that you like it, too.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Hugs,

Jinny

Hallo und herzlich willkommen. Für die obige Karte habe ich etwas für mich Ungewöhnliches gewagt und zwar eine Karte nur mit Stanzen. Zuerst habe ich ein Stück Aquarellpapier mit Regenbogenfarben koloriert und ausgestanzt. Um mehr Dimension zu bekommen, habe ich aus weißem Fotokarton das Wort drei weitere Male ausgestanzt und alle übereinander geklebt. Für die Gestaltung des Hintergrundes wurde Transparentpapier verwendet, welches zuerst gestanzt und danach embosst wurde. Zum Abschluss habe ich nur noch Stickles und reichlich Glossy Accents aufgetragen.
Ich hoffe, dass meine Karte euch gefällt.
Danke fürs Vorbeischauen und ich wünsche euch einen wunderschönen Tag!

A Christmas card


Hello and welcome. I hope your week is off to a good start. I spent the whole weekend watching the Olympic Games. I stamped a whole bunch of images in advance and colored them while watching the Games. Anyway, here is the first card I am sharing with you today:


I wanted to add one more Christmas card to my stash, so I stamped one of my favorite images and colored it using watercolor pencils. I didn´t use any embellishments because I really wanted the image to stand out but to add something extra, I distressed the edges of my panel before adhering it to the card front.
I hope you like how my card turned out.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Hugs,

Hallo und herzlich willkommen. Ich hoffe, dass ihr gut in die neue Woche gekommen seid. Mein Wochenende habe ich damit verbracht, die Olympischen Spiele zu verfolgen. Ich habe einige Motive im Vorfeld gestempelt und beim Fernsehen diese mit Aquarellstiften koloriert. Auf Embellishments habe ich verzichtet, damit das Motiv gut zur Geltung kommt. Für das gewisse Extra habe ich die Ränder distresst, bevor das Ganze auf die Karte geklebt wurde.
Ich hoffe, dass meine Weihnachtskarte euch gefällt.
Danke fürs Vorbeischauen und ich wünsche euch einen wunderschönen Tag!

A birthday card


Hello and welcome. The third and last card I am sharing today is this one:



The images I colored using Copic markers in rainbow colors. I had so much fun creating the background and I really liked how it turned out. Therefore, I used a piece of vellum when following the sketch 
(I personally love the look of vellum on cards, especially on busy backgrounds). As final touch I added some Stickles here and there and made them look like air bubbles.
I hope you like how my card turned out.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Another card without a sentiment


Hi there and welcome. The second card I am sharing with you today looks like this:


Isn´t the image just beautiful? It´s one of my favorites at the moment and I colored it using watercolor pencils. To assemble the card, I used the sketch you can see here. As embellishments I only used liquid pearls to keep the card pretty simple.
I hope you like how my card turned out.

No sentiment card


Hello and welcome. Here is the first card I am sharing with you today:


The image I colored using watercolor pencils. After that I traced the outlines with a black gel pen. The papers are scraps I try to use up. As embellishments I added some flowers and gems. It´s totally out of my comfort zone to use flowers, but I think it looks nice. I didn´t add a sentiment, so I can make it suitable for any occasions.
I hope you like how my card turned out.

No line coloring for the first time


Hello and welcome. The card I´m sharing with you today looks like this:
 

To create the background, I first saturated a piece of watercolor paper with Distress Inks and then flicked some plane water on it. After it was dried, I flicked water (which was mixed with liquid pearls) and darker pink shades on to the panel. As I wanted to try the No-Line technique for the first time, I decided to use a very simple image which I stamped and colored using Distress Inks. To give the image a crisp look, I gently traced the outlines with watercolor pencils. I assembled the card using a sketch from MFT. The sentiment was stamped on vellum and as I didn´t want to cover the background, I just added three small hearts as embellishments.
I hope you like how my card turned out.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

A gift card holder card


Hello and welcome. The card I´m sharing with you today looks like this:


I wanted my card to hold a gift card, therefore I die cut two heart stripes out of my front panel. I then adhered it using craft foam and to adhere the image I used dimensional foams as well. 


I haven´t bought a gift card yet, so I just slid in a pink plastic card to take the picture. As a final touch, I added two die cut hearts.
I hope you like how my card turned out.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

A flip/swing Christmas card


Hello and welcome. Here is the card I´m sharing with you today:



When I first saw the image, it reminded me of Kevin from the movie “Home Alone”. This image is just too awesome and makes me giggle! For a little bit of a surprise effect, I made a flip card, so the recipient first gets to see the adorable cat and then the hilarious boy image. Well, Christmas is just over, but I can´t wait till next Christmas to send this card!
I hope you like how my card turned out.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Hallo und herzlich willkommen. Als ich zum ersten Mal das Jungenmotiv gesehen habe, dachte ich irgendwie sofort an Kevin aus „Kevin allein zu Hause“. Dieses Motiv ist einfach genial und lässt mich schmunzeln. Daher habe ich eine Schwingkarte gebastelt, damit der Empfänger zuerst das süße Kätzchen sieht und erst danach den Jungen zu sehen bekommt (und hoffentlich auch schmunzelt!). Ich freue mich schon jetzt auf Weihnachten, wenn ich diese Karte absenden kann.
Ich hoffe, dass meine Karte euch gefällt.

A CAS shaker card

Hi there and welcome. This time I am sharing with you a shaker card. 


I heat embossed the main image and the sentiment using black glitter powder. After coloring the image, I carefully cut out the inside of the jukebox to make the window. My initial thought was just to add a piece of vellum, but because of my bright color choice it looked quite weird. In the end, I chose bright raspberry colored glitter and made a shaker card.
I hope you like how my card turned out.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Hallo und herzlich willkommen. Diesmal zeige ich euch eine CAS Shaker-Karte. Das Motiv und den Spruch habe ich mit schwarzem Glitzer-Embossingpowder embosst und koloriert. Danach wurde das Innere des Motivs vorsichtig herausgeschnitten. Eigentlich wollte ich Transparentpapier verwenden, aber die kunterbunten Farben zusammen mit Transparentpapier sah irgendwie eigenartig aus. Schließlich ist es eine Shaker-Karte geworden.
Ich hoffe, dass meine Karte euch gefällt.

A CAS Valentine card


Hello and welcome. Here is the card I´m sharing with you:

 
To make it, I used the sketch provided by MFT Sketch Challenge. 
To keep the front panel just one layer, I made a good use of masking. 
To color the heart, I took a piece of gauze swab instead of a blending tool and put the color on with a dabbing motion (the ink color is Pumice Stone Distress Ink). The images were really quickly colored. I just used two watercolor pencils, scribbled some colors here and there and let the water do the blending for me. As final touch, I traced the outlines with a black gel pen.
I hope you like how my card turned out.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Hallo und herzlich willkommen. Für diese Karte habe ich mich an der Sketchvorlage von MFT Sketch Challenge gehalten.
Um das Herz auszufüllen, habe ich ein Stück Mullkompresse (statt Blending Tool) verwendet und die Farbe aufgetupft. Für die Motive habe ich nur zwei Farben (Aquarellstifte) verwendet und hier und da die Farben hingekritzelt und mit Wasser verblendet. Zum Schluss die Linien mit schwarzem Gel-Stift nachgezogen und fertig ist die Karte.
Ich hoffe, dass meine Karte euch gefällt.

A hello card

Hello and welcome. Today I am sharing with you a hello card. 


The fantastic image is from Bugaboo and I printed it on vellum. To color the image, I used Copic markers on the back of the vellum and then mounted it on a piece of white cardstock. I love the soft coloring you get when using vellum. The color combination for this card is inspired by a photo provided by Bugaboo challenge which you can see here. To pull this card together, I grabbed my bin full of paper scraps (which I hope to use up someday). By the way, the sketch I followed is from Stella Says Sketch Challenge.
I hope you like how my card turned out.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Hallo und herzlich willkommen. Für diese Karte habe ich das Motiv auf Transparentpapier gedruckt, auf der Rückseite mit Copic Markern koloriert und auf weißen Cardstock geklebt. Ich liebe die sanfte Farbabgabe, wenn man Transparentpapier verwendet. Die Farbinspiration kommt von Catch The Bug Challenge und der Sketch ist von Stella Says Sketch Challenge. Die Papiere sind Reste, die ich aufzubrauchen versuche.
Ich hoffe, dass meine Karte euch gefällt.

A twist pop up card


Hi there and welcome. This time I am sharing with you a twist pop up card. This is the first time I made such a card and I love it. But first of all, I want to show you the front of my card.


The sketch is from Tuesday Morning Sketches. To create the background, I stamped the heart shaped jewels. After coloring them, I put some glitter and thick coats of Glossy Accents (to try out the resist technique) and let them dry overnight. To color in the background, I first used Distress Inks on my prepared piece and then spritzed it with water. After it was dry, I took red watercolor and flicked little specks on that. To finish off the front, I just stamped the sentiment on to another piece of watercolor paper.
And now comes the inside which was so much fun to make! 


On the bottom I left some white space for writing a personal message. 

I just love this image and the sentiment!
I hope you like how my card turned out.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Hugs,

Jinny

Oh my, it´s a OLC


Hello and welcome. Today I am sharing with you a one layer card. I don´t know about you, but I find it quite difficult and challenging to make a one layer card.
The image I stamped with reddish brown pigment ink and heat embossed it with clear glitter powder. Most of the times I color my images using watercolor pencils and therefore love to heat emboss my images. 
To color the image, I first scribbled the colors carelessly because the water does the blending anyway.To make the coloring more defined and vibrant, I usually pick up additional colors directly off the pencils. When I color the hair, I kind of “flick” the brush. After the coloring was done and dried, I masked off the image (hello, Post It) and flicked some blue, green and orange spots and specks on to the background. To finish off the card I stamped the sentiment and rounded the corners.
I hope you like how my card turned out.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Hugs,

Jinny

Hallo und herzlich willkommen. Diesmal zeige ich euch eine One Layer Karte. Ich persönlich halte OLC für eine kniffelige Angelegenheit, aber dennoch wunderschön. Da ich fast immer Aquarellstifte zum Kolorieren verwende, liebe ich die „Heat Embossing“ Technik für meine Stempelabdrücke. Auch hier wurde das Motiv heat embosst und die Farben hingekritzelt. Nach dem ersten Verblenden mit Wasser nehme ich weitere Faben direkt von den Stiften, um die intensive Farbe direkt an die Pinselspitze zu bekommen. Nach dem Kolorieren habe ich mit Hilfe von Post It das Motiv abgedeckt, um ganz feine Farbkleckse auf die Kartenvorderseite zu verteilen. Zum Abschluss nur noch den Spruch hinzugestempelt, die Ecken abgerundet und fertig ist meine Karte.  
Ich hoffe, dass sie euch gefällt.
Danke fürs Vorbeischauen und ich wünsche euch einen wunderschönen Tag!
