Hi !

Hello everyone,
it's time to make a Christmas card - that's good, at Muse Christmas Visions they ask for that!

I was inspired by the sleeping Santa Claus from Muse Cornelia and thought: why not send him on holiday! 
.....I think he is very thrilled about my idea! 😎

First I sponged the background with two different shades of blue. Then I added sandpaper for the beach. I stamped two coconut palms and between them Santa's underwear on a clothesline. - He did a dive while waiting for his clothes!
I also added a burning sun (to dry the laundry - haha), some white gel pen strokes on the water, shells, grass and a small sentiment. I colored with felt-tip pens.

....this is MUSE Cornelia's card - I had so much fun CASEing it!

Enjoy every moment...

Hello everyone!
We have a new challenge at House of Cards and this time we would like to see patterned papers on your cards. (see the inspiration photo below)
As always, you can use only the colors or just the topic ......and why not, combine both!!

That's good - I have a full box of patterned paper scraps!

I cut different patterned paper scraps into a cushion shape and colored them (some) half with a darker color. Then I glued various twine (wool, gold cord, paper cord, etc.) to separate the colored half from the patterned one. 
I stamped the text - Enjoy every moment - on a piece of white paper, added a seam at the bottom, embossed the paper and pasted it on the card.
I glued the pillows together, sat the kitty on top of the pile and added a few glitter glue dots to the upper cushion.
I did not really stick to the color palette this time, because the papers I used were more in brown - red - green tones.

Surely you have such a box full of patterned paper leftovers - that would be a good opportunity to use a few of them. 😉

On the Beach

Hello everyone!
Sorry to have let you wait so long! Hubby and me were for a few weeks on vacation in Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.
But now everyday life has caught me up again and I am starting with a reminder for the current challenge at the Dream Factory.

This month's  movie is...

The Beach 

You can let off steam with everything about beach, sea, friendship, travel and Thailand!

I tore sandpaper in a few strips and used it to make the beach.
I stamped the palm, the sun, the text, some shells and the grass on the card. The surfboards are stamped and fussy cut. Sky and sea are sponged with Tempting Turquoise from Stampin'Up. I added some hatched lines with a white gel pen to the sea. I colored with felt-tip pens and some inks from Stampin'up.

I hope I have inspired you and it makes you want to join in!
See you soon ;)

The best things in life are sweet

Hello everyone!
We have a new challenge at House of Cards and this time we would like to see cards with Popsicles or Food and/or Colors! (see the inspiration photo below)
You can be inspired just by the image, or just by the colors ...

 ... or, like me, combine both!

I stamped the background with different fruits and watercolored them with felt-tip pens. - I also added the color dots with that pens. I watercolored (always with my felt-tip pens) the borders of a slightly wider cardstock than the one for the background and glued them both on the card.
I drawed a popsicle, watercolored it with felt-tip pens, traced the black lines and cut it out with scissors.
I die cut a circle from white cardstock and stamped the sentiment, then I stuck the popsicle and stamped once again the small part that was covered by the lolly. To finish, I stuck the circle on the card and added some pearl pen dots to the chilly thing.

Inspired? - We are looking forward to your icy, fruity, colorful creations!
Have a cool day ;)

Many Thanks

Hello everyone!
Just a quick reminder for our current challenge at the Dream Factory! - This month's movie is

Nine Lives - Voll Verkatert 
Neuf Vies ou Les Neuf Vies de Mr. Fuzzypants

... and we would love to see cats on your creations.

I made this card for my friend Gundi, to thank her for her kindness! Indeed, she did not hesitate to host us for a weekend, despite the very short time between our announcement and our coming! 
I chose these stamps because she like cats and also because she's the one who gave them to me! 
That's it, now you know the whole true story! 😉

Well, let's work!
For this card I stamped one cat and some flowers directly on the circle and the two other cats on separate paper to fussy-cut them. The second circle I punched is a little larger than the first and has a scalloped border. I also embossed a panel with big dots    ...... and all assembled gives what you see.
As always - or almost - I watercolored with felt-tip pens. I added some Washi tape and a paper string between the embossed panel and the circles. The sentiment is stamped on a piece of white cardstock. I glued it with thick double-sided tape, just like the embossed part on the card and the circles on the embossed part.

Inspired? - So, do not wait and put your ideas into action before they fly away! 😉 
.....we look forward to your creations!

Who will eat the cake...?

Hello everyone!

We would love to see cats, cats and cats 😸😸😸

Look at my Birthday cats,

....they are eyeing at the cake!

For this challenge I played with my Katzelkraft cats, - they have not left their box for so long! :((
After stamping the cats - I had to mask a bit to put them that way, I masked them again and stamped the floor (Kaisercraft). I also left a bit of room for the tablecloth. I colored everything with alcohol markers and put a bit gloss on the cats' eyes. For the tablecloth I used a stamp from the set "We must celebrate" by Stampin'Up. 
The cake on the table is hand-drawn and also colored with alcohol markers. - I added a bit Wink of Stella on the chocolate icing and filled the hearts with red pearl pen - to make it more yummy! 
To finish I stamped the sentiment (also from the "We must celebrate" set), and added stitched lines along the edges with my quilter wheel. 

Surely you all have stamps or punches with cats, right ?! So, we look forward to your creations with these mini tigers! 

Happy stamping, cutting, punching....

Peace to the world

Hello everyone!

Just in time ....

.... that I finished my card for the challenge at Muse Christmas Vision.

Pam's card inspired me with many things! - The colors, the gold, the word, the circle - which I interpreted by a kind of star-shaped stained glass - gold embossed and watercolored with felt-tip pens. I embossed the background after coloring, just with thumb pressure.
... the only thing I did not have was a dove, but I find that the little bird replaces it with lot of dignity!
I also had to come up with something for the letters !!
I embossed a piece of paper with an embossing folder full of letters. - I cut out the letters I needed, sponged them with a bit turquoise ink and stuck them on the panel .....voilà!
I cut the finished panel a little smaller than the white base card and glued a large light blue strip of cardstock between the two.

Christmas Wishes

Hello everyone!
Today I made a Christmas card .....we can never have enough of it, right ?!

I started with stamping the row of mistletoe and colored it with felt-tip pens. I stamped the image and colored it with colored pencils and then embossed this panel. I cut out a banner from beige cardstock, glued it on the panel, stamped the part of the image who was hidden by the banner and colored it with colored pencils. I masked the part of the image on the banner and stamped then the gingham pattern and the sentiment. I attached the banner with staples and glued the panel on a turquoise card. At last I added some white pearl pen dots to the mistletoe branches, and a bit of Wink of Stella to the snowflakes and the gifts.

Und hier sind meine Kreationen zum Blog Hop.
Et voici mes créations pour le Blog Hop.

Für die erste Karte habe ich das wunderschöne digitale Stempelset "Open Bloom" von MHK designs verwendet. Was ich an Digi-Stempeln mag, ist, dass man sie auf jede Größe einstellen kann! Hier druckte ich die Blumen in einem sehr kleinen Format, kolorierte sie mit Buntstiften und schnitt sie mit einer Schere aus. Ich habe den Text vergrößert und direkt auf die Karte gedruckt. Dann habe ich ein Stück Wellpappe auf einer Seite abgerissen und auf die linke Seite der Karte geklebt. Ich klebte die Blüten und wicklete noch ein Stück Silberfaden um sie herum. Eine weitere kleine Blume in der Nähe des Textes und ein paar Pearl Pen Punkte und das war's!

Pour la première carte, j'ai utilisé le magnifique set de tampons numériques "Open Bloom" de MHK designs. Ce que j'aime chez digis, c'est que vous pouvez les régler à n'importe quelle taille! Ici, j'ai imprimé les fleurs dans un très petit format, les ai coloriées avec des crayons de couleur et découpées avec des ciseaux. J'ai agrandi le texte et l'ai imprimé directement sur la carte. Puis j'ai déchiré un morceau de carton ondulé d'un côté et je l'ai collé sur le côté gauche de la carte. J'ai collé les fleurs et je les ai entouré d'un morceau de fil d'argent. Une autre petite fleur près du texte et quelques pointes de pearl pen et c'est tout!

Für die zweite Karte wählte ich diesen schönen Digi Stempel von Digistamps4Joy.
 Nachdem ich das Bild mit Buntstiften koloriert hatte, schnitt ich es mit Schere und Skalpell aus. Ich prägte den Hintergrund, wischte ihn mit etwas grauer Tinte und klebte ihn auf eine weisse Karte. Dann habe ich ein Oval aus dem Deckblatt gestanzt und das farbige Bild an diese Stelle geklebt. Der Text (Stampin'Up) ist auf der Innenseite der Karte gestempelt.

Pour la deuxième carte, j'ai choisi ce magnifique tampon digi de Digistamps4Joy
Après avoir colorié l'image avec des crayons de couleur, je l'ai découpé avec des ciseaux et un scalpel. J'ai embossé l'arrière-plan, l'ai épongé avec de l'encre grise et l'ai collé sur une carte blanche. Puis j'ai découpé un ovale dans la feuille de couverture et collé l'image colorée à cet endroit. Le texte (Stampin'Up) est estampillé à l'intérieur de la carte.

Let's Party!

Hello everyone!
Just a quick reminder for our current challenge at the Dream Factory!

Nowhere in Africa - Nirgendwo in Afrika - Nulle part en Afrique
... animals, landscapes, people - everything that has to do with Africa is welcome!

I found this adorable gang on the net, copied it by hand and watercolored it with felt-tip pens. 
The background is made with the confetti stamp from "We must celebrate" (Stampin'Up). I colored with felt-tip pens and added some faux stitching along the edges with my quilter wheel. 
I put the colored picture on orange cardstock and stuck it on the background. 
I cut the sentiment twice in black and once in gray and glued them together, moving the black words slightly over the gray to get a shadow illusion. 
I stuck the background on a yellow card and added the sentiment.

Now it's up to you, 
you still have two weeks to let it roar and growl and bleat, chatter and screech, etc. on your creations! 😀
