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!

Stamps: Stampin'Up, Katzelkraft
Inks: Colorbox "Lime" Versafine "Onyx Black", "Satin Red" and "Smokey Gray"

"Chicken Little" -- Reminder

Hi, friends!

Two weeks are over and we could see lot of your stunning works
but please 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) ^^ 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!

New month - new challenge!

Hello everyone!
Yes, the new challenge at the Dream Factory starts today and for the next 4 weeks, we have chosen a romantic film.

"Pretty Woman"

I love this movie and I've seen it umpteen times because....
Julia Roberts is one of my favourite actress, ....but of course Richard is not bad either! hehe ;)
....and they make a so wonderful couple!

I was inspired by a Collene Kennedy image....
Her quirky ladies make me smile every time I see them and
I hope you like this "fashion queen" as well as me! :)

There are so many possibilities for this challenge and I'll give you a few keywords as inspiration:
 shopping, clothes, hats, shoes, lovers, men, women, etc.

....and now its your turn, challenge yourself!! ;)

Something different !

Hi friends!
To this day, I attended only at Stampin Up workshops, but a new member came to our group and it turned out that she is also part of the family - not for SU but for a French company.
By nature I am a curious person and so it happened very quickly that I attended one of its demonstrations!
For the first time, we did something with ink sprays - thing I had never tried before and it was quite difficult for me to imagine the result!
But after overcoming my fear of doing something wrong, I said to myself: "Hey, why are you afraid, it's just ink and paper!"

... here is the final result !!

For the first card I used quite dark colors and the result is rather male

.... but for the second, I dared to color a little more vibrant!
After drying, the colors become slightly shimmering which unfortunately can not be seen on the pictures.

We tested different stencils, stamps and structure paste.
First, we sprinkled white paper with water. Then it was the turn of stencils and sprays. 
Once the paper dried, we worked with the paste and other stencils to finally finish with stamps! 
Et voilà!

This is really something very different compared to what I use to do, 
but I loved to try this "patouille" (means mud or slush), as we like to say! ;)

Have a nice day and thanks for watching,

All material used for these two cards is from "Scrap Plaisir"

First daffodils

This afternoon strong winds have slightly fallen and I took the opportunity to take some pictures. Here is one I would like to share with you!

Look how beautiful and bright they are! 

Yesterday there was only one open flower ....

I wish you have a wonderful day!
