Timer Challenge PTI


Finally I dare to take cardmaking challenge again. This time it is from my favorite paper crafting supplier: Papertrey Ink. They are celebrating their 7th anniversary this year and planning to post creative challenges. The first challenge I join in is their very first “Timer Challenge”.  I had 7 minutes to grab 7 ingredients and create a project within 17 minutes. Indeed not easy, especially when I had to choose ONLY 7 supplies. So, here it is…

DSC03859 DSC03860I thought of using only 1 type of paper and decided to not take the complimentary dies, because I needed 1 more ingredient to finish up my card. So, I cut out the flowers just with scissors and therefore could use some pearls. I am happy with the result.


Solid Card Stock:  Oatmeal Cardstock (Wplus)
Stamps: Bigger Blooms (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Chesnut roan (Color Box), Green Hills (Hero Arts), Summer Sunrise, Hibiscus Burst (Papertrey Ink)

Take a picture

Hi there,

Finally, after long rainy days we meet the sun again today. It’s such a cold and wet year so far with a lot of shower in the past few months. I am not complaining, after all the rain brings us food. While kids are enjoying nice weather in the garden, I kept myself busy making a birthday card for my dear godchild, Anna. Since Simon Says Stamp Challenge this time is about taking a picture, I forced myself to come up with the same idea, so that I can submit this card for SSS challenge in the last minutes. I thought of combining vintage and bright color to give a “childish” impression. So, here is the result. I hope you enjoy. Thanks for stopping by.

(another) Bouquet Builder

Yes, I did have a lot of fun with PTI blog hop challenge this week. This time I even challenged myself to use a color scheme which I’ve never thought I would choose. Usually I would use more colorful combination which includes either red, rose or orange. I was a bit skeptical in the beginning, but it turned out to be (in my opinion) a sweet one. Here is the Bouquet Builder I had choosen:


I don’t have Limeade Ice inkpad, so I substitute it with So Saffron inkpad from Stampin Up. And here are the ingredients:

Stamps: In Bloom, Beautiful Butterflies, Day dreamer (PTI)

Paper piercing and Flower Power

Halli hallo hier bin ich wieder! Finally I had time to organized my scrapbook corner. It was sooo messy before I left for US and it prevented me from working! There were papers everywhere and my table was covered by stamps, inkpads, books and tools. When I came back from US, I (of course) brought in some more stuffs. I saw the urge of doing some cleaning and reorganization. Last Sunday my room is finally ready for my next projects and today I made one nice card for joining card making challenges from Papertrey ink, CASE Study #142 and Simon says stamps 🙂
