Hi friends.
Today is the 15. of the month and that means that we have a new challenge at the Dream Factory for you.
For the next four weeks we selected "Fast and Furious", - a perfect movie for masculine creations!

Cars, gears, speed, roads, guys .... and of course pretty girls --- stuff for men, not true?!
These are just some key words to inspire you. I'm sure you still find other ideas which I have not thought!

And now, let's go to meet a not always easy challenge ... !

This is a very imposing stamp which requires much space, so I decided to keep the card as simple as possible.
A bit of blue ink SU on an acrylic block, which I sprayed with water and pressed on white paper. - My background was born and I just had to add the car and the word stamp!
Subsequently, I stuck the image on the card, which is fitted with aluminum foil and embossed.

The same with orange background on only one layer.

Thanks for your visit and for the ever so nice comments!
Happy weekend to all of you

Ein besonderer Tag!

Mama, Mutti, Mami, Mutter, Mütterlein, Mum .....egal welchen lieben Namen wir ihr geben,
es ist immer dieselbe liebevolle Person die darauf antwortet.
In Deutschland ist heute Muttertag und ich wünsche allen Müttern, Mamas, Mums einen wunderbaren Tag.
......Lasst euch ruhig ein bisschen verwöhnen, ihr habt es verdient ;)

Meine Mutti ist leider sehr weit von mir entfernt und ich kann ihr nur eine Karte schicken, 
welche aber mit viel Liebe und Herz gemacht wurde!

Alles auf dieser Karte (Stanzen, Papier, Spitze, Band) 
habe ich von meinem letzten Deutschland Aufenthalt mitgebracht! :))
Die tollen Stanzen habe ich von meiner Nichte Karola bekommen und die anderen Schnäppchen fand ich in verschiedenen Geschäften. - Schade, dass man hier in Frankreich nicht so leicht, und vor allem so billig fündig wird!

Ich wünsch euch einen wunderschönen Sonntag und lasst es euch gut gehen ;)
Bis bald, Rosi

HOC - May Challenge -- Clear Papers.

Hi friends, it's time for a new challenge at House of Cards.

This month we would like to see vellum or acetate on your cards!

....some flowers for my sister's 50th birthday

This card is made on a white base, on which I added a lime green gingham and a tiny black strip.
I stamped 3 big flowers with green on yellow vellum and with yellow on white vellum and I heat-embossed them with clear embossing powder.

Then I die-cut all the flowers and leaves with the beautiful "Botanical Builder Framelits Dies" from Stampin'Up.
Next I colored the back of the three vellum flowers with a yellow felt-tip pen
and finally each flower got a black center, colored with white chalk marker.
The sentiment is also from SU.

... a robot for my grand-son's 10th birthday.

I used acetate for this very simple shaker card - I think he'll love!

...and shabby flowers for mum's 80th birthday

There is not much vellum on this card but I want to show you.
Some heart stems and two leaves are cut out from vellum and here too,
I used the Stampin'Up Framelites for the flowers and the leaves. (Heart stems Impression Obsession)
The roses are handmade from ribbons - by myself.

On this and the next photo, you have a closer look on the different arrangements.

For special days and my loved ones, I really love create this kind of cards! 

As you can see, we celebrated many anniversaries with round numbers this year in our family, 
and we're waiting for another big 60th in August!! 
....Let's celebrate!!!!

Hope you like it.

Game of Thrones

Hi friends.
Time for a little reminder to the current challenge at the Dream Factory.
This month our movie is called Game of Thrones, one of the most viewed TV shows in the world!

 I used a word game for this ATC

In the movie there are dragons,
so I thought it would be funny to use dragonflies  :)

.....don't you think so?

You see, no need to make a real dragon ;-)
and you still have two weeks for creating something of unique!

Thanks for stopping by 
and happy weekend to all of you

See you soon

Etwas spät....

....bin ich dran um euch meine Osterkarten bzw. Basteleien zu zeigen - ich hoffe ihr mögt sie dennoch sehen.

Il est bien tard...
...pour vous montrer mes cartes de Pâques et bricolages - j'espère que vous avez encore envie de les voir.

Wenn ich es schaffe, dann habe ich in den nächsten Tagen noch etwas zu zeigen.
Si je peux, alors j'ai encore quelque chose à vous faire voir dans les prochains jours.

Tut mir leid, dass ich in den letzten Monaten so wenig zeigen kann aber es geht leider nicht immer so wie man es gerne möchtet!

Je suis désolé que j'ai si peu à montrer ces derniers mois, mais malheureusement ça ne va pas toujours comme on voudrait!

Ich wünsche euch einen tollen Tag
Je vous souhaite une excellente journée

GOT - Winter is coming!

.....Do you know what that means?? -- Sure you do!!

Hi friends!
We have a new great challenge at the Dream Factory!
This time we selected a TV series which started in April 2011 .........already an idea???
It is the adaptation of the saga A Song of Ice and Fire, a series of novels by George R. R. Martin

Well, no more suspense. I think you have already guessed what I mean!
The challenge for the next four weeks is called....

Game of Thrones

I was immediately fascinated by this series and Daenerys of Targaryen and Jon Snow 
were my favorite characters right from the beginning!

Unfortunately I am not very rich in stamps for this kind of movie,
but I nevertheless unearthed a cute little dragon and a small castle!
And as it is cute, I wanted to stay funny until the end!
That's why I placed a crown on his ear and gave him a shovel instead the flower which he normally holds.
Some snowflakes in the background and the motto of House Stark......
.....I think, it became a nice card for next winter!

I wish you a fabulous weekend and thank you so much for your visits!
Hope I could inspire you!

HOC - Script or colors .... or both!

Hello, friends!

Time for a new challenge at House of Cards!
This month we would love to see on your creations .....script and/or colors!

Create a card with script and/or using the color palette.

Here is some inspiration from me :)

On my first card you can see stamps from Stampin'Up set "By the Tide" and "Teeny Tiny Sentiments", some corrugated cardboard, red twine and a tiny starfish charm. - A very simple card.

When I saw Pam's card, I knew immediately that it will be perfect for my new stamp! 
So I was strongly inspired (not to say that I copied) by her gorgeous card and I'm very happy with the result! --- which was of course very simple to do!

Thanks so much for reading. Hope I could inspire you!
Have a fabulous weekend!

"Chicken Little" -- Reminder

Hi, friends!

Two weeks are over and we could see lot of your stunning works
but please ....do not stop yet,
you still have another fortnight to create something for this nice challenge!!

To remind the topic on Dream Factory, I made these funny Origami chickens

They are so easy to do and can be nicely filled with goodies! -- Really cute for Easter!
My chickens are made with 25 x 25 cm Design paper and once finished, they measure 12,5 x 12,5 cm
-- you also can use 30 x 30 cm paper and get 15 x 15 cm hens ...(for more goodies) ^^

...you want to try them yourself? ....look here ;)
!!  But be careful, do not use too thick paper because it tears very easily !!

Happy Origami! ;-)

Hi friends.

Today starts the new challenge at the Dream Factory and we have a funny movie for the next four weeks.
Perhaps you know "Chicken Little", the young chicken who caused widespread panic when he mistook a falling acorn for a piece of the sky.....

I stamped three little chicks with my inked thumb, and 
then I drew the wings, eyes (small punched circles) and beaks with permanent marker. 
A bit Washi and some doodles around the image ...and voilà!

Easter is not very far.....
grab this challenge, make some fun Easter cards and share them with us!

See you soon, Rosi

Hi, all!
Today starts the new monthly challenge at House of Cards and for the next four weeks, 
we'll play with Silhouettes

I couldn't choose just one, so I show you some different ways to use this topic.

My first card is black and white with three die-cut birds sitting on a cord and watching the moon - all that on a reverse embossed card base. It was very simple to do!

For my second card, I used acrylic blocks and Distress ink for the colored squares. 
Once dried, I stamped the image in gray and the sentiment in turquoise.  
.....and for the fun to use one of my new stencils, I added some text using acrylic paint at the left corner.

On the third card, I used watercolor spots on wet paper. 
After drying, I stamped the bird and then I continued the green line under the bird's tail outside the frame.

For my last card, I sponged at first the background with yellow and blue ink. 
Then I stamped the yellow leaves. Next was the branch which I heat embossed in white. 
After that, I stamped the birds at twice to get a darker image (and also some shadow *lol*)
Last I added a few splashes and the sentiment.

As you can see, there are so much possibilities to make silhouettes and I wish you great fun for all those you'll make!

Happy day to all of you!
