Star Wars or/and Sissi

Hi everybody!
Yep, a new challenge at the Dream Factory we have and Star Wars this time we chose!
Here.... technologie, aliens, spaceships, movie characters etc. you can use!  :-) :-)

....and for those who do not like this masculin universe, we also have a more graceful movie for which you can use romantic, love, princesses, castles, nature and so on.
Do you know Sissi 
The empress Elisabeth of Austria - interpreted by the very young Romy Schneider in 1956! 
.....Yes, it's a very old movie, but full of romance and gorgeous images ;)

For beginning, I chose Star Wars - maybe I will do Sissi for the reminder!

Yoda is not a stamp, I found him on a coloring page on Pinterest and he immediately caught my eyes! 
I made a copie using tracing paper and once drawn to the card, 
I colored the guy with felt-tip pens and placed the handwritten sentiment.

Now I'm curious to see which movie you will choose  .....maybe both!  ;)

Happy stamping and have fun!

Peacock feather colors

....this week at Less is More.
In addition I wanted to join with 52CCT but no time to make two different cards! :(

...So, look what happens when two challenges are combined!

Left and right panels are Viva Decor stamps. 
The center panel is embossed with Woodland embossing folder from Stampin'Up, 
which I have inked and stamped with Colorbox inks before. (Teal, Peony and Moss Green)
The card base is embossed with Softly Falling embossing folder - also from SU.

I think the colors work well with winter scenes too!

See you soon!

You realize that we're already on September ! - Time goes so fast !!
Today begins a new challenge at House of Cards and in September we would like to see

Some winter scenes ....

... to give an impression of freshness by this hot weather!

On each card I combined two challenges. 
For Less is More I used stickers and for 52CCT it was watercolor. 
The sentiment is from Kesi'Art and it says: "Let it snow"

On both cards the background is colored with watercolor. 
On this one I used a tree die cut in addition to the stickers - the sentiment is already a part of them.

...... And that's two more cards for Christmas! hehe :)

Thanks for all your nice comments - I'm always so happy to read them.

Hugs, Rosi

Rouge, Noir et Kraft ....

Salut tout le monde.
Il fait beaucoup trop chaud pour travailler au chantier de construction - alors j'en ai profité, pour faire une carte.  ;)

Difficile à croire, 
mais dans seulement quatre mois .....c'est Noël!!

Voici ma première carte!

J'ai utilisé du papier cartonné "Sable du Sahara" de SU pour ma carte à la quelle j'ai ajouté un morceau embossé - du même papier. La branche de sapin est une découpe de Impression Obsession et l'estampille est de Penny Black
Pour finir, j'ai ajouté le ruban rouge et du fil métallique enroulé.

J'ai conçu cette carte pour le  52CCT ,
.....encore un challenge-blog au quel je n'ai pas pu participer depuis de longues mois!!! :(

Merci pour votre visite et pour les gentils commentaires, 
lesquels je lis toujours avec beaucoup de plaisir!

A bientôt, Rosi

Something French

Hello everybody.

It makes a while that I have not participated in a Less is More challenge and I could not miss this one!

I think these two stamps fit like a glove for the challenge.
The Eiffel Tower, the baguette and the beret!  ....just missing the cheese ;-)

 Thanks so much for stopping by,

Hugs, Rosi

Dream Factory - Madagascar

Hi everyone!
I hope you had a lovely holiday, or'll catch them soon!
Here in Bloggerland, it's already time for a new challenge and at the Dream Factory we have a funny movie for you!

For the next four weeks, we will challenge you with 


Here is what I made....

It's been a while since I have not made a 3D card. I loved to cut  those little pictures (sooo good for the nerves) - I could spend hours and hours doing that! This image dates from those days, because now I have no more time to do that.
I used a stencil for my background. Then I cut the oval and placed the image between the base card and the background. A little sentiment and it was done!

And now, let's go to the wild!   
.....we are already looking forward to your creations!

Hugs, Rosi

Here is my card

Now I hear you say:  "where is the twine" !?!? 
.....Click on the photo and you will have a closer view, .....the twine is in the "diem"
I embossed the background with my brand new embossing folder --- so it looks like more twine ;)

Finding Nemo -- Reminder

Hi everybody
Two more weeks have run away and it's time to remember to the current challenge at the Dream Factory!
In these two weeks I have added nothing new and that's why you still have fish today! * LOL *

You can see four species on my card:   
a cat fish, a moon fish, a parrot fish and...
the main character of the story - a clown fish!

These are not stamps but drawings for April Fools. I found them so super funny and could not resist.
I drew them on my watercolor background and highlighted some parts with felt-tip pens, to better bring out each fish.

I hope you love what you see....

Thank you so much for your visit !

Hugs, Rosi

Dream Factory - Le monde de Nemo

Bonjour les amis.

Un nouveau défi vous attends sur à la Dream Factory et ce mois ci, nous avons choisi le film suivant:

Le monde de Nemo

Donc, pour ce défi il nous faut des habitants de la mer - et bien sûr beaucoup d'eau.....

Voici mes cartes - les deux faites avec le même set.

La première carte est très coloré - comme dans le monde de Nemo!

Tout les éléments sur cette carte ont été découpés aux ciseaux et "tartinés" avec du Glossy :))

Dans les profondeurs de l'océan, là où il n'y a pas de lumière, les couleurs ont moins d'éclat. 
C'est pourquoi ma deuxième carte est monochrome avec juste une touche de rouge.

....désolé, ce n'est pas souvent que j'écris que en français mais 
aujourd'hui je laisse faire le travail au traducteur! ;)) (en haut à droite)

A bientôt

Fruit / Drink and / or Colors

Hi friends!
July - A new season begins at House of Cards and for the first challenge, we have a very fruity topic!!

This month we say: Fruit or Drink and / or Colors.

Here is what I made for!

I just love the bright colors of our challenge photo and I wasn't long to find my idea! First I watercolored the background of my image then I've drawn the lemons and the sentiment. Next I colored the sentiment in green and gray.  Once done, I stuck the image on a bit bigger gray cardstock and added a drop of juice to the "squeeze".
The embossed background gives some fizzy feel - like fresh lemonade!

And here is the inspiration photo

You can use the image or the colors or.....  all together if you want.

Have a very pleasant weekend .....and much fizzy drinks ;)


Stamps: Katzelkraft (drop), Lemons and sentiment are hand drawn
Embossing: Stampin'Up
Watercolor, permanent marker,
