Snowmen's Christmas Wishes

Hello everyone!
We have a new challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. This week it is all about Snowmen.

On my card there are snowmen from Hein Design, Penny Black, Scrap Plaisir and Craft Sensations - in short, I dug up my whole snowman collection! Ha ha ha ūüėā ūü§£
I stamped a sentiment from The Stamps of Life and put some small pearl-pen dots in the "free" areas. I colored with felt-tip pens, and Volià, I like it!

Hope you have some time for this fun challenge - don't forget, Christmas is around the corner!!

Twofer Sweets

Hello everyone!
Not always easy to have an idea for two different cards with the same stamp, but when I saw Twofer's new challenge it was obvious and I didn't want to miss it under any circumstances!

I chose little cupcakes from Stampin'Up for my cards.

My first card is for Halloween. I used the little cupcakes to make flowers. I stamped an orange circle, stamped then the cupcakes around, colored them with felt-tip pens and fussy cut the flower. To make it look a bit scarier, I glued a black grid on the orange circle and gave everyone a googly eye. I put them in a bottle and stamped a spider to one of the flowers. The first word of the sentiment reminded me of a pumpkin and the second word of its stem. I arranged it so that the two words builded a pumpkin and its stem. I like it, hope you like it too!

The second card is a birthday card for which I was strongly inspired by one of my earlier cards and even though it looks almost the same, it is still different!
It's not very often that I use washi tape, but here I've gone to great lengths! Ha ha ha 
I tore and glued the washi strips as it came to mind and for the rest I also took up the basic idea of my card. I hope you also like this very similar version...

DotMCC - Challenge #8 - Reminder

Hello everyone!
Just a little reminder on our current World Card Making challenge at Day of the Month Card Club!
This time only cards are allowed!

I made a card for a football fan.
The football is a punched and embossed disc, colored with black felt-tip pen. The sneakers are from Stampin' Up, colored with alcohol markers and fussy cut with scissors. In the background there is a grid which indicates the goal net. The lawn is made with distress ink. To do that, I pressed the stamp pad several times on a piece of acetate and then transfered it onto the panel. I sprayed water on the remaining color and pressed it once more onto the panel - Love how it turned out! 
The saying is handwritten and enriched with three stamped labels. It says: Goals are not attained by strength but by perseverance

...last weekend we did a card swap on the theme of sport in our girls' workshop - so I made seven more cards!

....hope you have some time to play with us ūüėČ

There is ALWAYS a reason to celebrate!

Hello everyone!
A new challenge starts at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown - this week we have three colors for you:
White - Blue - Brown

Until the end of the month 52CCT has a DT-Call. If you want to join the team, you should take part in the 4 challenges of this month. For more information please visit the challenge blog.

I used design paper and two different stamp sets for my card. The rat comes from Katzelkraft and all the other stamps are from The Stamps of Life, except the little stars and the cap (Stampin' up). I watercoloured everything with felt-tip pens and then added some Wink of Stella on the firs and the little snow hill behind the rat. Bevor glueing all together, I added some splashes of white ink on the design paper for more interest. 
Actually the design paper is striped but the photo doesn't show it at all! :(

Have fun with the challenge

DotMCC-Challenge #8 - World Card Making Day

Hello everyone!
Welcome to our 8th Day of the Month Card Club challenge!

Our new theme is:

World Card Making Day
Celebrated on October 5th.

This special day should encourage everyone to make a homemade card and our challenge will give you a whole month to do it!

I don't know anyone who wouldn't be touched by a handmade card!
You can make them in many ways, for every occasion and often you don't even have to be well equipped for it. For example, I made my very first handmade card with dried grasses and flowers. Later I made 3D cards and for a while I also made embroidered cards - yes that was very time consuming but the recipients appreciated them all very much and kept them well until today!

Whether 3D, embroidered, stamped or created by computer, what counts is that you want to please the recipient with something special, something that comes from the heart, something that means "I'm thinking of you"!

You will see, card making is so much fun, that you'll create more than one of them in the future!!

A quite simple card, as you can see!
But just because it's simple doesn't mean I didn't care to create something beautiful for the person who gets this card!
I worked with watercolors and put different colored swabs on a white panel. In addition, I spread very fine, dark red splashes over the dried panel. My idea was to make it look like a rose petal rain. The silver colored sentiment that was allready printed on parchment paper matched like a glove! I die cut it with a circle die and glued it with a narrow, double-sided tape onto the panel, which I then glued onto a white base card.

I made this card for my dear niece's birthday.

There is ALWAYS a reason to celebrate! ūüėČ

Christmas in the Heart...

Hello everyone!
A new challenge starts at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown - this week we have a sketch for you!
From today until the end of the month 52CCT has a DT-Call. If you want to join the team, you should take part in the next 4 challenges. For more information please visit the challenge blog

...this sketch was quite easy and I immediately had my idea!
I glued a piece of linen onto a white panel, then punched out the circle and embossed the white surface. I marked the punched area on the base card, sponged it with Distress Oxide ink, sprinkled water on it and dried it immediately with a paper towel. I stamped the houses, watercolored them with felt-tip pens and fussy cut them. The tree and the sentiment are direktly stamped on the base card. Finally I punched the star and stuck everything onto the card. 

Have fun with the sketch.

How about some tinsel?

Hello everyone!
I would like to remind you of our current challenge at the Dream Factory!
Our movie theme this month is:  Free Birds

I already used the Katzelkraft ostrich for the main work 
and for this card too, I couldn't resist the Katzelkraft birds!  .....but this time I am in a Christmassy mood! ūüėČ

I mixed blue and white acrylic paint and spread it on a piece of Bristol using an old credit card. A few minutes later (it dries very quickly) I used stencils and white acrylic paint to add some accents. After complete drying I scraped off some paint with sandpaper and so that nothing smears, I stamped the black designs with Stazon ink. 
I watercoloured the bird and the fir tree with felt-tip pens, fussy cut them and glued them to the card. I wrapped some tinsel around the tree and put the ends into the bird's beak. I stamped the sentiment on small labels and cut them to size. Finally I put a warm cap on the bird's head.

You have two weeks left and I hope you have as much fun creating as I do! 
See you soon....

Merry Christmas

Hello everyone!
Last Saturday in September - you see, time is running fast and to not lose too much of it, we go straight to our new challenge at  52 Christmas Card Throwdown. This week we would like to see an Easel card or a Tri-fold card.

I decided for a tri-fold card. 
The background was created with the help of an embossing folder which also punches. After embossing I sponged the panel with Distress Oxide to to make the embossing more visible.  The punched stars were backed with silver glitter cardboard. I stamped some more little stars, added white splashes and glued the panel on the base card.

I cut the top of a white piece of cardstock wave-shaped, stamped the sentiment and glued it onto the folded part. I watercolored the little elf with felt-tip pens, fussy cut it and stuck it onto the card. 
I won this super cute stamp set at Cornalia's Give-away! Merci Cornelia ♥

Hope you like my little elf...
Happy folding!!
