My Entry to the Global Design Project #GDP096 Challenge


Good afternoon dear friends,

i have just finished my this week´s entry for the Global Design Challenge #GDP096!

This weeks challenge was to CASE this card:

The Global Design Challenge is open for everybody so why dont you join the fun and create your own entry?

You can read more about the challenge and about how to enter here:

My card measures 5" x 7" and i used chocolate chip card stock to cut out a 3 1/2" square for my front.
I also used my  chocolate chip ink pad to spritz the card base very lightly with the ink, as well a a white 3" x 3" panel. I also used a brush to add random texture to it.
I die cut the twig and the leaf from chocolate chip card stock and layered the skeleton leaf on a die cut piece of vellum that matches the shape.
I wrapped silver wire around my white panel before layering my panel onto the brown panel, using dimensionals to add some depth.

I the stamped my sentiment in chocolate chip an white card stock and used the label me pretty punch to puch it out. I also wrapped silver wire around it before gluing it to my card front, and that was my card finished!
I think this card is fab as a sympathy card and i very elegant and sleek.

let me know what you think of it and thanks for dropping by today.

Stunning 3D Box Toppers to pimp any Box!

Good afternoon myfriends,

today, i want to show you these two  3D box toppers that  i have created from DSP.
They consist each of 8 circles that are being fold 4 times only in a specific way to create this look.
There is no way i can explain this to you with just words so if you really want to learn how to make these, drop me a comment that you would love a tutorial over these.
I will happily make one if enough people are interested!

The green box is a simple square box, measuring 3 1/2" square and 2" high.
I added Rhine stones and a pretty ribbon to finish the box off and its just turned out cute i believe.

To make the box, i needed a 12" x 12" piece of card stock.
I will post the product list in a few minutes folks.
Thanks for dropping by and bye for now

How to create the 3 envelopes for "The Envelobum" without an envelope punch board!

Good evening friends,

as most of you know, my latest tutorial published was The Envelobum. This project has generated a lot of interest and raised the question if it could also be done without an envelope punch board.

The answer is: Yes, of course it can!

I quickly created this little tutorial video for all of you who do not have the envelope punch board but still wish to make this project.
Please watch it here:

The measurements for your card stock are as follows:

1 piece 11 1/2" x 11 1/2"
2 pieces 11" x 11"

For the larger piece, the nodging marks on side 1 & 3 are  4 1/2" and 5 1/2"
for the sides 2 and 4 they are 6" and 7".

For your 2 smaller pieces the nodging marks on side 1 & 3 are  4 3/8" and 5 3/8"
for the sides 2 and 4 they are 5 5/8" and 6 5/8".

I hope you appreciate my efforts here to help  you out please keep in mind that i cut and scored three more pieces of my card stock just to show you how to do it and on top made the effort to create a video tutorial in addition to this blog post.

Thanks for dropping by and  happy crafting!


The Forever Friends Rosette Wand

Good afternoon everybody,

i want to show you my friends forever rosette wand which i made today.
It is made from the Eastern Palace DSP and i made it really sturdy by choosing a 7/8" score pattern so the valleys are really deep and thus the rosette really sturdy.
I created loads of different flowers from foamiran, using various punches and die sets from stampin up to embellish my rosette.

Te rosette itself has fussy cut borders on the larger one and the smaller one thats layered on top has been cut with a border puch.

The main rosette is rather large  and made from 3 strips of 4" wide DSP. With the score pattern being so large ypu will need all 3 strips you can cut from a 12 x  12 piece of DSP! 
I stamped my sentiment and punched it out with a label punch and layered that together with a chipboard bird and a die cut piece of lace over a brown oval shape i die cut, too.
The center piece on both sides are strass elements which i bought very cheaply on ebay, they are from China and were mounted on cheap hair pins which i removed.

The whole creation is very colourful, opulent and rich in colour and detail, and maybe not everyone likes it like that... however, i like it so i made it!

I will post the shopping list in due course.
Have a nice afternoon and thanks for dropping by today
