Monster Birthday

Hello everyone!
We have a new challenge at the Dream Factory! - This month's movie is

Happy Family

Monster, Frankenstein, werewolves, vampires are the keywords for this topic.

I do not have any stamp that could fit this theme, so I had to be creative! 
I dropped a few drops of ink on white paper and blew it with a straw.
I stuck googly eyes on each of the spots, and here they are! - Three cute little monsters. Aren't they?

I wish you a lot of fun with this challenge!
See you soon

Stamps: Sentiment, (Stampin'Up); Texture on the base card (Scrap Plaisir)

Christmas Greetings

Hello everyone!
Hard to believe that another week has passed!
Time really flies too fast .....and so it happens that I show you another Christmas card today!

I made this card is for the challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.

This week, the keyword is "silver" and I was not stingy with it!
I stamped the background with tiny Christmas images and added some pearl pen dots to the berries. I stuck a piece of aluminum foil on white cardstock and embossed it. I cut a slightly larger piece of turquoise blue cardstock and stuck the embossed piece on it.
I die-cut a star of white corrugated cardboard and another of white cardstock.
I cut out a slightly smaller star from the corrugated cardboard star and another one from white cardstock.
I glued the big star frame to the big cardstock star. I stamped the sentiment on the little white star and stuck it in the star frame. Lastly I inserted thin blue wire between star and aluminum foil.

Merry Christmas

Hello everyone!
Yes, it got me! - here is another Christmas card.
I played with the sketch at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown

... and that's what came out!

I kept my card in a clean & simple style.
...So lucky, I found this circle die in my assortment and thought that it would fit very well! - The deer was just the right size and I liked it too.
The strip of patterned paper looked a bit too empty, so I added a die cut star border at each side.
The background is embossed with Pinewood Planks embossing folder (Stampin'Up).
To put the embossed part further forward, I stamped the edges of the base card with a texture stamp and gray ink.

Thanks for looking!

Silent Night

Hello everyone!
Christmas is around the corner and I need to refresh my card stock!
Today I made a card for the Muse Christmas Visions challenge. - Once again I was inspired by Muse Cornelia and I really had fun to CASE her card!

Night falls and slowly it gets dark above the village.
...for the background, I've pretty much stuck to Cornelia's example - because it is soo beautiful! 😊
I colored the background with alcohol markers and then stamped the firs. I die-cut the village and replaced the windows of the houses and the church with colored cardstock. I added the stars with white gel pen. The sentiment is heat embossed.

Under the mistletoe

Hello everyone.
I have to hurry because the challenge at  Christmas Cards Throwdown ends tomorrow!

I have used this stamp already here, but in a slightly different way. 
For this card I cut out the image after coloring and pasted it over the banner. 
The card is not embossed and the banner is different too.
I used my favorit coloring technic - scribbeling with felt-tip pens on an old CD and then use the ink with a water brush.

Have a nice day

Thank You

Hello everyone!
Today I come with the new challenge of House of Cards. For this month, we selected beautiful colors and/or autumn flowers. (See the inspiration photo below)

I wanted to make a thank you card.

.. and here is what came out!

I started by making a flower but admit that I had no idea what I was going to do with it! - Pushed it from one corner to the other and could not figure out how to place her. I took a thin black strip and played with both, the strip and the flower. - Still no idea!
I added a silver strip to the black ...and I liked - a vague idea was born!
I added a bright yellow spot but found it was still too empty! .... a bit of embossing might be nice!?
Said and done! .... but before embossing, I stamped the big Thank You! - after I would surely have trouble! ;-)
To emboss I choose one of the embossing folders that I found at Action some time ago and then sponged the edges with grey ink .... I just loved the result !!
Now I was on the right track! The flower, as well as the stripes got their place.
Finally I stamped a tiny text on the top left - just to balance.

...Inspired? ....Want to join us? - We look forward to your creations!

Have fun!

Life is a wonderful adventure

Hello everyone!
Time to remember that we're half-way with our current challenge at the Dream Factory - which means you still have two weeks to entertain with little Heidi, or Peter and his goats, or just a mountain scenery.

... and that's exactly what I did, a mountain landscape.
Because, Heidi went to Frankfurt and Peter and his goats are untraceable! LOL 

I started painting mountains and pastures with watercolors. Then I added the sky, and in a slightly darker blue the lake which you can see through the firs at the bottom of the card.
The firs are stamped with Tranquil Tide ink, both from Stampin'Up. I added a little brown to the tree trunks, and some white gel on the mountain peaks - and three birds.
I fussy cut the saying, colored it and then stuck it on the card. 
(For the translation see the title of the post).

To watercolor, I generally use felt-tip pens with which I scribble on an old CD then use the ink with a water brush.

That's all for today. 
See you soon!

Hello everyone!
Not long ago, I won challenge # 19 at Do-Al (l) Kreatives with this card. And not only did I win a prize, but I was also invited to join their team for the current challenge as a guest designer! - Thank you so much Doris and Alex!!
The challenge is based on a bingo grid (see below) where you can choose several combinations, which is pretty cool!

For my part I chose the left column: Dies / Punches + Pink + Flowers

Here is what I created!

The flower consists of die cut hearts from patterned paper and a punched circle. The stem and the leaves are drawn with a black fineliner. The leaves are watercolored with green felt-tip pen. The saying and the text on the circle are from Stampin'Up. Before I stuck the flower panel on it, I stamped the edges of the white base card with black ink and a stamp from a grunge set by Scrap Plaisir.

Hello everyone!
We have a new challenge at the Dream Factory! - This month's movie is


Mountains, goats, friendships, girls, nature, rural life, family are the keywords for this topic.

Here's what I created.

To start I made the different masks that I needed for this scene - the girl, the animals and the tree trunk.
I stamped the girl, masked it and then stamped the animals. I added the masks of the animals and stamped the tree trunk. Next I added the mask of the tree trunk and then stamped the firs. While the masks were still in place, I sponged the background with sky blue ink and then removed all the masks.
I stamped the mushrooms, the snail and the rabbit and colored them with watercolors. I fussy cut them and stuck them to the scene after coloring the ground.
The girl and the other two animals are also watercolored.
I added the sentiment and glued the panel on a brown base card.

Hope you like it 
.....and have fun with the challenge!

Happy Birthday

Hello everyone!
We have a new challenge at House of Cards!
This time we have a Birthday Theme and/or Colors. (see the inspiration photo below)
You can use only the colors or just the topic ....but you can also combine both!! - I tried to use theme and colors...

...and that's what came out!

First I stuck lot of Washi tape all over my card and added a small strip of embossed paper and black Washi tape at the bottom. Then I stamped the word Happy Birthday and the macaroons. After coloring I fussy cut them and pasted them on the card. I cut the card a bit smaller than the white base card and stuck it on top of it. Voilà!

Don't Stop Music #2

Hello everyone!
It's me again, with a second card for the Dream Factory challenge reminder :)
You can see the first one here.

I protected the center of my card with a round punched piece of Washi tape. 
I laid plain paper - in whitch I first cut a hole, then I colored the round surface with black felt-tip pen - .... and added flowing black tracks at the bottom of the disk.
I traced dancers on transparent paper, copied them to the card with tracing paper and colored them in black. - I used the same technique for the words and the mouth! 
Grid and splashes are made with stamps.

Thanks for your visit  <3

Don't Stop Music

I would like to remind you of our current challenge at the Dream Factory. - This month's movie is

Save The Last Dance

The key words are:  
Music, Dancing, Love, Hip Hop, Ballet, America, Black & White.....

This time I made two cards...

For my first card I used a black card. I stamped the whole right side with Birthday Wishes. 
I added a piece of torn and aged note. The guitar is stamped three times, cut out and colored with different colors. The star is die-cut and scribbled with felt-tip pens. The "Don't Stop Music" is stuck with self-adhesive foam pads.

Do you want to join us? - You still have two weeks left!
The second card comes right away ;)
