suuuummmer :D

It’s hot outside, and you’re thirsty, it’s not quite time for a cocktail yet but you are still craving something amazing? I guess that’s when a delicious lemonade comes in handy 😀
I’ve been browsing through pinterst last week and I found this wonderful recipe – the picture made me want a lemonade right now but I did not have anything at home, that’s why I just used „lemonade“ paper and created this wonderful box – I love it 🙂 – and the wonderful inspirational photo as well 🙂 
Now if you’re craving lemonade – hop over here  and check out the amazing recipe at Deliciously Sprinkled 🙂 If you want to create this cute box, hop over here or here for instructions 🙂
and if you would like to share your summer creation over at Bastel-Traum, please do so, we’re looking forward to your projects 🙂

Top Tip Tuesday: Summer Fun — my top tip: use a heart punch and a small flower punch to create a cute strawberry, you can either run it through the big shot with a polka dot embossing folder or draw some dots on it to make the strawberry look even more delicious 🙂

new punch board and Incolors

I played around with the new paperbag punchboard and the super cool new InColors by Stampin‘ Up!
The punchboard is great and so are the new colors – can’t really decide which one my favorite is though – and, does the bag look better with or without the little flower accents? I don’t know 🙁 how do you like the new stamp set? I like it a whole bunch and can’t wait to order some new goodies next week, June 2nd, when you can order from the new annual catalogue 🙂

I’m in love with the new Stampin‘ Up! InColors 🙂 the green is my favorite I think 🙂

I made this cute little tealight box – the tutorial is by Sam and can be found here 🙂
my little creation also fits our current CUYL challenge – twine, ribbon and buttons 🙂 hop over to check out our dt’s work and play along 🙂

treat bag :)

a very girly treat bag is what I created – polka dots, flowers, butterflies, pink – girly, right? 😛

I used the gorgeous flower stamps – I heat embossed it in white so it would be easier for me to color them with watercolors 😉

sunny card :)

I love the color yellow 
Not every shade of yellow of course, my favorite is a nice, bold sunflower yellow, almost orange but still yellow – just like Crushed Curry by Stampin‘ Up! I couldn’t resist making a card with just this one color 🙂 I love how it turned out, so simple, so cas, but I still like it 😉
I adore the flower which I stamped with Versamark and embossed it with white powder – then I colored it with watercolors and that is it 🙂
I made it for the current Creative Friday challenge where we’d love to see 2 ribbon 😉 easy peasy, right? Hop over and play along 🙂

embossing :))

We’d love to see some embossed projects over at Challenge Up Your Life – wether it’s heat embossed or „dry“? we’d love to see’em all 🙂

I chose the „Something Lacy“ background stamp and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder, then I went over it with a sponge and Blackberry Bliss – I tried to create an ombre look – it didn’t really turn out the way I hoped it would be but it’s not too bad I guess 🙂
