Happy Birthday, Opa!

My grandfather turned 86 years today! I am happy you are still with us! Reason for a special birthday card.
Once again, I used the heat embossing technique. This time for the black numbers on his card.
The black powder contains some silver flakes as well, this is why it shimmers so beautiful!
I also used two embossing folders on the silver/grey stripes.

First Easter card with Bugaboo digi!

I won some digi stamps from Bugaboo and choose some easter images. It was the first time that I used my copic markers to color an image.

This is my first easter card this year:

First Heat Embossing Birthday card!

For my birthday, I got an heat embossing dryer and some colors. Unfortunately, it took a while until it was delivered. Now, I can't get enough of it and all my recent cards have at least one heat embossing element on it.
This card was made for my aunts birthday this week:

The pink flowers and the sentiment are created with a pink embossing powder. The two smaller flowers have a pink fabric button in the centre and the big flower a green heat embossing dot.

The color combination is perfect for a spring birthday card!

Pink elephant for a baby girl!

An old friend of mine in Austrialia welcomed a baby girl recently and I wanted to send a card around the world. I used the elephant stamp from the SU stamp set "zoo babies" and kept the rest quite simple:

Make a cake turquoise!

I needed another birthday card and wanted to use my SU "make a cake" set again. I got inspired by a card from Dawn Tidd on Splitcoaststampers:

I really like the outcome as the colors match perfectly. It is not often that I have ribbon, ink and paper in the same color.
