K1-1105 - Konfirmation - türkis

Die Zeit der Konfirmationen ist nun zwar schon um, aber ich hab noch zwei unveröffentlichte Karten, die ich euch gerne zeigen möchte.
Normalerweise arbeite ich eher selten mit größeren Stickern, aber hier hab ich mal eine Ausnahme gemacht, da mir das Fisch-Symbol und die vielen Farben so gut gefallen haben!

The time for confirmations is over, but I still have two unposted cards I wana show you.
Usually I don't work with larger stickers very often, but here I liked the fish symbol and the colours so I made an exception!

K1-1107 - Hurra & Gratulation

Diesmal gibt's was zu feiern!
Zum Beispiel den Abschluß vom Schuljahr! Hier in Brandenburg haben wir nur noch 2,5 Wochen Schule - am 19.06. gibt's Zeugnisse und dann heißt es "Ab in die Ferien!" !!!

Schon auf dem Umschlag sitzt ein fröhlicher kleiner Frosch, auf der Karte schreit er dann ganz begeistert laut "Hurra" und klimpert mit seinen Wackelaugen!
Im Inneren der Karte hab ich noch ein "Gratulation" gestempelt.

Today we can celebrate!
For example the graduation at the end of the school year! Here in our Federal State (Brandenburg) we have only 2,5 weeks left - we will have school-report day and start of the summer vacations on 19.06.!!!
  On the envelope there is a happy little frog, it shouts a enthusiastic and loud "Hurra" (= "Hooray") and it's blinking with its googly eyes!
On the inside of the card I stamped "Gratulation" (= "congratulations")

K1-1120 - Kraniche / Einfach so

Hier in Teltow haben wir eine Kirschblüten-Allee, die nach dem Fall der Mauer entlang des alten Grenzstreifen zwischen Süd-Berlin und Brandenburg angelegt wurde. Die über 1000 Bäume waren damals ein Geschenk aus Japan.
Seit einigen Jahren wird hier jedes Jahr Ende April das Hanami Kirschblütenfest gefeiert. Dieses Jahr hatte ich dort zum ersten Mal einen Stand mit Karten und Origami-Werken! 😍
Extra für den Markt hab ich noch einige Hanami-Karten hergestellt. Einige davon mit gefalteten Origami-Figuren...
Mehr darüber in Kürze!
Heute zeig ich euch eine davon. "Einfach so..." 😉

Here in Teltow we have a Cherry-Alley, placed along the old border between south Berlin and Brandenburg. All the trees, more than 1000, were a donation from Japan.
At the end of April we celebrate the Hanami Cherry Blossom Festival there. This year I had a booth there with cards and Origami-creations for the first time! 😍
Especially for the market I crafted some special Hanami cards. Some of them with folded Origami-creatures...
Soon I'll tell you more about the Festifal!
Today I show you one of these Origami cards. 
Translation of the German sentiment "Einfach so..." = "Just because...". 😉

K1-1137 - Bee wonderful / Bee BlogHop

Uniko Studio

20th May 2019 is the 2nd World Bee Day!

https://www.worldbeeday.org
Source: https://www.worldbeeday.org

As a symbol for the worldwide importance of the bees (and other insects) for all living on our planet, Milka Gubo / Crafty Milka is organising again a "To Bee or not to Bee" Blog Hop and she invited several companies to participate. - This time, Uniko Stamps is one of them!

See all the sponsors of this great BlogHop here:

Kindness is great!
So leave some kind comments on the BlogHop pages and get a chance to win one of the sponsor prizes! In the Uniko-Post you can see the full list of  participiants.


We from Uniko Stamps decided to make a Mini-Hop inside of this big Bee Hop with our DesignTeam to spread this important message too.

And as always, our DT-BlogHop also includes the chance for you to win a great Uniko price! This time, ist's Bee-themed (for sure!) 🐝 😊
You have until Friday, 31th May to comment along the DT entries.

Isn't that a great opportunity?


:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:
Here is my Bee card for today:


K1-1137 - Bee wonderful
K1-1137 - Bee wonderful - Detail
K1-1137 - Bee wonderful - creating the background
I cut out some nesting hexagone shapes to get simple masks.
Then I did some ink blending with different combinations of the masks, the Uniko Scattered Polka Hexagons Stencil and four colours of Distress Oxide Inks.

I've created my own fitting sentiment out of the different Uniko-stamp sets.
The sentiment I stamped on an extra strip of white paper and kind of wraped it around the layer with the honeycomb.

I added this layer with an 1 mm 3D tape on my cardbase.
Then I stamped, coloured, decorated and fussycut the bee and added it beside the honeycomb.
To finish the card I put some flower-shaped sequins in the lower area and some round ones in the honeycomb.
:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:
Here are some more bee-themed cards I posted before.

After all the positive comments here and here for my funny mid-century bees I decided I need to make more cards with them!
Hope you like the new one too!
