Guest Designer Wiebke Zander - Part 1

Hello friends,

what a crazy time - so so many people are posting pictures and videos from CHA, from warm weather and palm trees in California and from all the lovely people they meet.
Let me tell you - I am envious to the max. Warm weather would be great of course, but meeting all those super lovely crafters from all around the world? Meet my team mates? EXCUSE ME? I wanna go there.  But don't know if I will ever have the chance to ;)

This was kind of off-topic, I just had to let you know. Just had to.

I am here to introduce our January Guest Designer to you - woohoo! (By the way, we have an open call for the February Guest Designer going on now. You have until Friday to apply ;)

Our January guest designer is a lovely young lady from Germany whom I "found" on instagram (wiwicard) a while back - her cards are amazeballs - Wiebke Zander!

Wiebke creates fun cute cards, uses different techniques and walks a line between clean and simple and artsy-cute. She has a great sense of humour and inspires me to out of my comfort cas-zone now and then :)

Soooo, let's see what Wiebke created for you:



I intended to create a card with the beautiful snowflake stencil, some embossingpaste and just a few light colors.

  • I mixed a Distress Ink color with the embossingpaste and put it on the stencil
  • While the background dried, I colored the moose plus accesoires with Copic Markers
  • I stamped out the sentiments and grounded them on some black cardstock.
  • I add a few clear sequins for the finishing touch

I intended the card to turn out very soft and light colored. The "Made of snow" friends are perfect to do so, because snow isn’t a bright color! Just a few splashes of color are enough to add interest and a finishing touch to your card.


Isn't that a lovely card? What a great way to incorporate our Wave of Snow Stencil!
 Make sure to check out Wiebke's blog - there are so many cards to love!
Thanks for stippon' by - have a great day!
