Unusual shape

Hi, friends!

It's time for a new challenge at House of Cards!
For this month, we have a Technique Challenge and we would love to see *Shaped Cards*!

Every shape is allowed, except square or rectangular!

I hesitated a long time between a round or triangular card 
and finally, I made an octagonal! - Very logical, eh?

Let your imagination run wild! .....We are excited about what you'll show us!

A deer

... crossed my path and,
it was perfect for the reminder at the Dream Factory!
The topic of the challenge is "Frozen" from Walt Disney.

To begin, I stamped the card background with deer antlers. 
Next, I used a star shaped mask and stamped the text on a white piece of paper. 
Then I stuck this little piece on a slightly larger brown paper and glued it to the card. 
And to finish, 
I punched the deer from gold paper and mounted it with 3D foam pads and some golden twine on my card. 

I really love how it turned out!

Have a happy day!

Here are my 10 cards ....

No no, I do not mean the weather, I mean the movie ;)

Dear friends, it is time for a new challenge at the Dream Factory and this month,
we have selected "Frozen" from Walt Disney for you.
("Die Schneekönigin" for my German friends and "La reine des neiges" for my French friends)

You can use snowscapes and forest animals, snowflakes, snowmen, everything that has to do with winter!
....and maybe even what with crowns and princesses. ;)

I needed 10 cards for tomorrow's swap and...

... to start, I inked all the card bases in light blue. 
Then, I punched a big star in white cardstocks and stamped a big blue star over, - 
and tiny blue stars around the punched stars. 
To finish, I stuck them onto the card bases with 3D foam pads and added a silver bead 
and some silver twine to the centers.
The sentiment means something like: Let it snow!

For some more inspiration, take a look at this card
I made the nice guy for an earlier Dream Factory challenge!

Have much fun!

Sad news!

The year ended very bitterly for dear friends of us!
Fate has hit very hard and robbed their beloved son, husband and dad! - A heart attack at only 58 years !!

I hope that my card and the comforting words can relieve their pain,
.... be it only a little!

Take care!

Hello teamies, hello everyone!

I wish you a full year of happiness, joy, success and above all, good health!
--- I hope you had a smooth transition ....after all these glasses of champagne !! ^^ ;)

Ok! So, let's start the year with a new challenge at House of Cards!

a door tones

For the beginning of the year, we've beautiful neutral colors and it would be great, if you can use them in combination with embossing! ....don't worry, colors only, or embossing only is very fine too!

I tried to use both of them and I must say, ....I like the result!
....and as you can see, I'm still in Christmas mood! --- we can never start too early !!

For my black background, I used "Whisper White" and the "Holly Jolly Greetings" stamps from SU. The sheet of vellum is textured with the "Softly Falling" embossing folder (also from SU) and the fir branch is a Memory Box die-cut. 
For the sparkle, I used a star sticker and some golden fibers!

I wish you great pleasure with the challenge!

Ich wünsche euch allen ein wunderschönes Weihnachtsfest und viel Glück und Gesundheit im neuen Jahr!
Je vous souhaite à tous un merveilleux Noël et beaucoup de bonheur et de santé pour la Nouvelle Année!
I wish you all a wonderful Christmas and much happiness and health for the coming New Year!

Mon ange gardien m'a demandé:
"Quelle est ton souhait pour l'année prochaine"?
J'ai dit:
"Prends toujours bien soin de toutes les personnes,
qui me tiennent à cœur"!

My guardian angel asked me:
"What is your wish for next year"?
I said:
"Take always good care of all people,
which are close to my heart "!

Santa Claus is coming!

Hello everybody! Time for a new challenge at the Dream Factory! Christmas is not far away and this month we would love to see creations with Christmas themes, snow, winter and of course, Santas!!

I used a Crafty Secret image for my Santa which I associated with the firs and an embossing folder from Stampin Up 
....and for the festive look - a circle, made with glue and silver glitter.

Have fun with the challenge!

Indian summer....

Today I want to welcome five new members! - Sorry, that I let you waiting so long!!

I am delighted that you are here and I hope you
can find some inspirations!

With these incredibly mild temperatures, I have not yet had the opportunity to make a winter photo,
 but I captured this beautiful maple in its magnificent autumn glory as a welcome for you.

A big merci, to have stopped here! <3
