Guest Designer Alex Kretschmann



Hello everyone, today our wonderful Guest Designer is Alexander Kretschmann.








My name is Alex and I was born in 1979. I have found the way to crafts through my wife. It all started with harmless color and decoration advice. My effective introduction to card making was by coloring stamp impressions. I limit myself mainly to paper works. You can see my projects on Alex' kreative Seite, this blog in now running since December 216. On 15th January 2020 I started my own challenge blog: Creative Crafting Uncles.








First of all I prepared a card stock and put a patterned paper on it. Now I prepared all die cuts I liked to use. After I finished them it as time to place the stamps and stick the die cuts onto my card. In the middle I glued on a ribbon flower
and place some pearls.




















Materials:
Background paper: Nel van Veen (3307)
Die cuts: Nellie Snellen (MFD020), No brands from Action
Text: Handmade with love (TEDI)
Image: Viva D├ęcor (400315000)



Thank you so much to Alex for sharing his wonderful creation. Please do check out Alex's Blog.
