Danipeuss Kartenchallenge/Card Challenge #043: Card #1

I’m participating in the Danipeuss Card Challenge for the very first time and I’m here to share with you the cards that I’ve made for the challenge. This time’s theme is “Happy Birthday”, and I have made two cards, which I will share in this blog post and another post tomorrow. Danipeuss is a new blog that I’ve found and started following recently, because it’s in German, and I really need to make sure I don’t forget the German I’ve learnt, and I quite like the content they produce. I’m also going to blog in German for the first time, so good luck to me!

Hallo zusammen, heute zeige ich Ihnen meine Karte für Danipeuss Kartenchallenge #43, zum Thema „Happy Birthday”. Ich machte zwei Karten für diese Kartenchallenge, und morgen werde ich Ihnen die zweite Karte zeigen, denn ich muss die Karten in verschiedenen Posts zeigen, gemäß den Regeln der Kartenchallenge. Es ist mein erstes Mal auf Deutsch bloggen, und ich bin leider ein bisschen eingerostet. Entschuldigen Sie mich wenn mein Deutsch falsch ist! 

Here’s the first card I made for this challenge:
Hier is die erste Karte für diese Challenge:

Danipeuss Kartenchallenge #23, Card 1

This is a simple card, but it took me a while to put it together because I was really uninspired when I started out. I knew I wanted to to use those feathers that I stenciled and fussy cut out but and it took me a while before I found a placement that I like, along with choosing the right colours for the feathers.

Eine einfache Karte, aber am Anfang habe ich Probleme zu beginnen, weil ich ideenlos war. Ich weiß, dass ich die Federn benutzen wolle, und brauchte ein bisschen Zeit, um ein angenehmes Design zu bekommen. 

I started out with a blank piece of white panel for the card front and I didn’t like the bright white, so I grabbed my gouache that was beside me on the table and just swished some neutral colour down. It was still a little too plain, so I took a textured stamp and randomly stamped it on the background with an ink pad matching the background to give it some interest.

Ich malte die weiße Tafel mit einen neutralen Farbe meiner Gouache und danach stempelte ich mit einen dessinierten Stempel für manchen Interessen. 

For the sentiment, I wrote out “Happy Birthday” on a strip of blue textured cardstock with a black pen, plus a white pen for some shadow. I then matted it with black cardstock, stamped the empty space with a border stamp and stuck it down across the panel. For the finishing touches, I inked the edges of the panel and the sentiment strip with a gold ink pad for some definition, and added some pearls for a more elegant look.

Ich schrieb die Sentiment mit einem schwarzen Kuli, und dann markierte einen Schatten mit einen weißen Kuli. Zu der Feinarbeit machen, färbte ich die Panel und der Sentiment-Papierstreifen mit goldenen Stempelkissen ein und klebte einige Perlen an der Karte, damit alles ein elegantes Aussehen gibt. 

Some close-up photos of the card details:

Hope you enjoy this little card that I made for the challenge. Admittedly, I don’t create cards often unless I am inspired by cards that I’ve seen other people make. In fact, this is the first time I’m making a card with a blank mind, and it’s a lot harder than I expected. But practice makes perfect, no? I’ll post the second card I made for the challenge tomorrow, and then one more card I’ve made in the same setting the day after so look out for that (:

Und das ist alles! Ich hoffe, dass Sie an diesen Karte Gefallen finden. Die zweite Karte finden Sie morgen in einem anderen Eintrag. Tchüss!

  1. Hi Joan! We’re happy that we could inspire you to create some cards and to see you participating in our danipeuss.de card challenge! I think you did quite well. I know how it feels to be “stuck” during a project… I think everybody does. Your card turned out beautiful! So thank you so much for participating 🙂
