Bi Weekly Challenge at Chocolate, Coffee and Cards #37


Hello Fellow Crafters,

It is time again for another great challenge over at Chocolate, Coffee and Cards. This time our challenge was to follow the sketch that Joanne designed! She did a super fine job. Our sponsor for this challenge is Eureka Stamps.

Es sind schon wieder zwei Wochen herum und es ist Zeit fuer eine neue Challenge bei Chocolate, Coffe and Cards. Dieses mal haben wir eine Sketch Challenge. Den Sketch hat Joanne kreiert! Unser Sponsor fuer diese Woche ist Eureka Stamps.


Here is my card for the challenge. Hier ist meine Karte fuer diese Challenge:

My Digi Stamp that I picked is called 4207 Birthday Dinosaur.
My son Jon helped me pick this stamp and Eureka Stamps has so many cute and amazing digi stamps. If you have time do go over and check them out it will be worth your time, lol.

Den Digi Stemple den ich mir ausgesucht habe heisst 4207 Birthday Dinosaur. Mein Sohn Jon hat mir geholfen diesen Stempel auszusuchen und Eureka Stamps hat so viele wunderschoene uns suesse Digi Stemple. Wenn ihr Zeit habt schaut doch mal vorbei es lohnt sich, lol.

The inspiration for the card came from the colored paper. I loved the colors and wanted to try something new in so far as coloring. Of the background paper I chose my Copic Markers and started the coloring. 

Die Inspiration fuer die Karte kam von meinem Hintergrundpapier. Ich fand diese Farbkombination einfach toll. Ich wollte auch mal etwas anderes versuchen mit meinen Copic Markers. Von dem Papier habe ich dann die passenden Farben ausgesucht.

I was trying to go for a boys birthday card so I went with the blues, well I had to have a few sparkles though, hehehe.

Ich wollte eine Geburtstagskarte fuer eine Jungen basteln und daher habe ich blaue Markers gewaehlt.

Here is the list of Copics I used. Hier sind die Copic Farben die ich benutzt habe:
Dino/Dino: B02, B04, B05, B37 Colorless Blender
Spots/Tupfen: YG23, YG25, YG67
Spikes, Candles/Kerzen: Y6, Y8, Y11
Toes/Zehen: E71/ E74
Mouth/Mund; YR02, YR04

The image once colored was cut out with the classic circle Spellbinder Die. Stickles was added to the edge of the circle.

Das fertige Bild wurde dann mit einer Spellbinder Stanze ausgeschnitten. Stickles wurden danach um den Rand des Kreises gemacht.   

The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps, Everyday Circle Postmarks. It was stamped with Bahama Blue Memento Ink and cut out with Whimsy Slider2 Die. The balloon and star border is also a Whimsy Die, it is called Swirly Balloon Border Die.

Der Spruch  ist ein Stemple von Whimsy Stamps, Everyday Circle Postmarks. Ich habe die Memento Bahama Blue Tinte benutzt und dann mit der Whimsy Slider 2 Die ausgestanzt. Die Luftballons und Sterne sind auch eine Whimsy Stanze mit dem Namen Swirly Balloon Border Die.

As always one more look at the finished card. Please take a look at all the other fantastic cards that my fellow DT sisters have created at Chocolate, Coffee and Cards. Hopefully it will inspire you to join in on the coloring fun and enter your creation to our challenge blog. Can't wait to see what you all come up with!

Wie immer einen letzten Blick auf die fertige Karte. Und wenn ihr noch ein wenig zeit habt, schaut doch mal bei Chocolate, Coffee and Cards herrein und seht was meine Design Team Schwestern hergestellt haben. Hoffentlich werden Euch diese Karten inspirieren und Ihr werder mit malen bei unserer Challenge. Ich kann es kaum abwarten mir Eure Kreationen anzuschauen.
