New school year


Hello everyone!

With a bit delay, I would like to show you what I did for my grandchildren for the new school year. 
Both made a very important step this year. 
My granddaughter entered in the 1th class and my grandson in grade 6 - this meant quite a few changes for both.


This card was for Jeanne (6), the youngest of both. 




I made a mega big pencil for each one, filled with useful and pleasant things! ;-)
I found inspiration on Pinterest, but I did not make it in the same way.
I did not like the open tip of the pencil, and I closed it by glueing all the parts together, then I added a second tip for the pencil lead. - So I kept the opening at the bottom of the pencil. 
I cut the six flaps so that once the pencil has been folded, it will no longer twist or move. - I added a velcro to close it.
I'm sorry not to be able to show you these steps with pictures because I completely forgot to take photos! ūüėĘ


The card for Noah (11) was already shown on my blog and you can see it here if you like.



Wish you a happy day!

Christmas is coming...


Hello everyone!

The end of September is approaching and it's high time that I start making Christmas cards!




Nothing special! I stamped the base card with  firs in two different green (all Stampin'Up) and covered it with an embossed transparent paper. 
I colored a piece of white paper with the same dark green that I used for the background, and stuck a punched pink border to the large edges. I stamped the sentiment and completed with bakers twine. 
To finish I cut out 2 disks, one without scallops and one with. I colored the one with scallops in the same pink as the border of the green panel and stamped the other with gray stars and snowflakes and glued them together. 
I stamped and fussy cut the deer (Hero Arts), pasted it to the disk and then I stuck the whole on the card using foam sticker.


...see you tomorrow with a new creation ūüĎÄ

Birthday Wishes


Hello everyone!

I made this card to send birthday wishes to a very close friend.




I stamped a few flower stalks on a white cardstock, cut it slightly smaller than my base card and stuck it on this one. Then I stamped and fussy cut 2 flowers and gathered it with a few leaves to a small bouquet which I glued in addition of a small strip of black corrugated paper to the card.
...and I added some pearl pen dots to each flower center.


Hope you had a nice day!

Ahhh .... Nuts!


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



The Nut Job
Operation Nußknacker - Opération Casse-Noisettes

Mainly squirrels and nuts --- maybe combined with a dog or a rat or a racoon .....I belive they are also very interested in these little crispy things! ūüėČ





I choose this squirrel (Whipper Snapper), which seems a bit dubious in front of so many nuts, hazelnuts and peanuts.

I first colored my image with colored pencils and then with felt-tip pens. .... I have the impression that the image is more nuanced?!?!
Then I sponged the background with Tempting Turquoise (SU) and glued the image to a yellow base card.


Well, I hope you like squirrels and hazelnuts - you have 4 weeks to play with us.

Happy stamping!

Do you have time for a little aperitif?

Hello everyone!

I do not know if it's in your habits but here in France, we drink aperitif for the weekend or for a good news, when meeting friends and neighbors or when we have something to celebrate - thus, very very often! hahaha
Today I would like to share this recipe that is super tasty and super easy to do!



Smoked salmon or smoked trout 
Mini croissants





You need:


1 roll of puff pastry - 6 slices of salmon or smoked trout - 1 egg yolk - dill



 preheat your oven to 410°F or 210°C or Th.7

Cut the puff pastry into 12 parts and cut a slit in the middle of each piece at the opposite of the tip. 
Place salmon or smoked trout on the parts. 



Open this slot



 ... roll a croissant without over-tightening and give it the typical shape.



Place your croissants on a baking sheet covered with baking paper.



Brush the croissants with beaten egg yolk,



...and bake for 15 minutes at 410°F or 210°C

Let them cool slightly before serving!


!! You can replace the salmon with ham, which is also very delicious!! 
Spread a bit Dijon mustard on the puff pastry before putting the ham on it and then proceed in the same way!


Bon appétit!!

Autumn Colors


Hello everyone!
Time for a new challenge at House of Cards!
This month we want to see Text and/or Colors on your cards. (see the inspiration photo below)



... here is what that photo inspired me!


When I saw the photo, it immediately reminded me the beautiful  autumn season - warm and bright colors, which you will find on my two cards! The leaves on the first card are die cut from colored cardstock and then glued on the embossed background. I added an autumnal text and a piece of gingham patterned paper.



Text and/or colors




On my second card I created a little autumnal scene - a tree, a deer and some mushrooms on white cardstock. I stamped the first part of the text below the deer, and the second part of the text on a strip of vellum which I have torn at the lower end. I stuck it on the left, between the panel and the vanilla base card.


Have a great weekend

Merciii


Hello everyone!

First of all, I'm delighted to greet two new fans - be very welcome, Kristie and Doris!



...and then I have a new creation with cats from Katzelkraft for you!


This time I worked with the set "les chats russes"! 
The wall is made with a stencil from Scrap Plaisir  (I also used it here)
I dyed white structure paste with red and brown acrylic paint to get almost real looking bricks and colored the joints in gray.
I "sat" a cat onto the wall and masked it. Then I stamped some leaves behind the cat, sponged the sky with Tempting Turquoise (SU) and added two clouds with the same ink. The two other cats are fussy cut. I glued them to the card after coloring the soil. The whole is colored with felt-tip pens.


Thanks for visiting.

Happy Birthday...

...to my dear brother in law!



Hello everyone!
Today I come with a Birthday card. 


I stamped an masked the dogs, sponged the wall using a stencil, stamped the flowers next to the dogs and colored all with felt-tip pens. I sponged the sky in light blue and stamped the sentiment on a white paper strip which I cut and stuck to the card.
All stamps are Katzelkraft exept the wall (stencil from Scrap Plaisir) and the sentiment (Stampin'Up) which means something like: Another year smarter?

It's a cute card but still enough masculine.


Wish you a great weekend!

Christmas Visions # 4


Hello everyone!

Fourth and last card for the Muse Christmas Visions challenge.
It remains the beautiful wreath of Cornelia - look what I did!




...so easy to do!!
I stamped the sentiment on a white paper rectangle and embossed it. I die cut the wreath. 
I stamped and fussy cut two pine cones and three holly leaves. I glued all to the embossed panel and then to the base card. I added a few red pearl pen dots to the holly and a tiny bow, made with bakkers twine. 



Have a great day and thank you for visiting!

Water Dwellers


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


Splash

All water dwellers can be used .....including mermaids ūüėČ  
... and we look forward to your works!



A very quick and simple card.
I colored the image with felt-tip pens and added some tiny fishes. I cut it out and stuck it on a white card on which I first splashed black ink. I stamped the sentiment on a white paper strip, ripped the ends and glued it underneath the image.

I discovered this image on Pinterest .....it was very easy to draw but sorry, I can not mention the artist - I was not able to find him. If anyone recognizes this drawing, please let me know.


Have a happy day!

Christmas Visions # 3


Hello everyone!

I'm back with number 3 for Muse Christmas Visions!
For this card I was inspired by the graphic and the colors of Cornelia's stunning deer.



I stamped the penguin three times side by side and drew a garland which I colored with felt-tip pens. 
To recall the black and white border of Cornelia's card, I added two different stamps and drew a black line to give a seat to the penguins.

...a few stars in the sky and that was it!


Have a great day and thank you for visiting!

Christmas Visions # 2


Hello everyone!

As promised, I'm back  with a second card for Muse Christmas Visions.
For today's card I was inspired by Cornelia's cute penguins.




I stamped my penguins, colored them with felt-tip pens and fussy cut it. Then I stamped the mountains on a white card, colored their summits, retraced the firs wit black fineliner and added thick snowflakes using a stencil.
Before adding the snowy hills (white pearl pen) I stamped the sentiment and stuck a strip of washi at the bottom of the card. 
Now it was time to add the penguins, because they already began to sweat! hahaha

....another little sentiment on the upper left and the card was done!


Have a happy day!

Merry Christmouse

Hello everyone!

Today I show you the first of 4 Christmas cards.
Cornelia inspires with 4 fantastic cards at Muse Christmas Visions.
You can participate with one card, or be very inspired and make 4.
.....I was very inspired ūüėČ  I made 4 cards which I will show over the next days.



Number one...


For my first card, I aimed at Cornelia's "Cookie Card" by using kraft and the colors.
I used Merry Medley (background) and Merry Mice (image) from Stampin'Up. 
The sentiment is from Lora Bylora. I used felt-tip pens for coloring.

Flowers


Hello everyone!
Time for a new challenge at House of Cards!
This month we have a Floral image and/or colors. (see the picture below)



.. and here is what the photo inspired me!


This card was very easy to do! 
I embossed the card base with "Petal Burst"(Stampin'Up).
I stamped three stems and two tulip flowers on a 7 x 9,5 cm white cardstock and colored them with watercolor pencils. I stamped an additional flower on a piece of paper, colored it, cut it out and pasted it with a foam pad on the stalk without flower.
I glued this panel on a larger, eggplant-colored cardstock and added the sentiment. (Docrafts and "Whisper White" Stampin'Up) 
To finish, I tied a bit twine around the panel and stuck it with foam pads to the base card.


Thank you for visiting ♥
... and maybe I could inspire you to join in  ūüĎÄ

Animals....


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



Zootopia 
Zoomania / Zootopie

Whether exotic, indigenous or pets, all animals are welcome!

...and you still have two weeks for creating ;-)



This time I used several birds from Katzelkraft and I played with my new stamps from Scrap Plaisir. 
I stamped leaves and an ostrich on white cardstock and sponged a little blue on the remaining white surface. 
I stamped some more leaves in lighter green on an another cardstock, cut them out and glued it above the first leaves. 
I stamped and colored two other birds, fussy cut them and stuck it to the panel. 
For more fun, I added a hat, glasses and a bow tie to the ostrich. 
The sentiments are little words that I mixed together and it says: Happy Birthday ... when do we arrive for the aperitif?
.... at the end it all looks a bit like a collage but I love the way it comes out!



Thanks for your visit ♥




Stamps and dies:
I also used "Lemon Lime Twist", "Pear Pizzazz", "Early Espresso" (Stampin'Up), "Onyx Black" (Versafine) and watercolors to do the stamping and the coloring.

A Little Girl's Birtday


Hi everybody!

Confetti, confetti - my nephew's little daughter is going to have two candles on her Birthday cake today!



... and voilà the little card that I made for her


I replaced the balloon that the little dragon originally held against three balloons that I created using ink and a homemade stencil. 
I added a piece of paper and a border that I also designed myself. 
To make the confetti, I tied three felt-tip pens together with washi tape and made small dots all around the image.
The dragon is colored with felt-tip pens. The sentiment says: Let's go... 

Thanks for visiting.

If life gives you LEMONS

Make LEMONADE



Hi everyone!
Have you already seen the summer challenge at Gundi (Papierelle)? ....It's about fruits!



...so today's card is particularly fruity! ;-)


A few lemons slices and a glass of lemonade (both from Stampo) - that was the basic idea! 
I chose a funnel-like shape for the top part of the card and stuck all lemon slices on/in it. 
... and to get the juice, I added the drop (from Katzelkraft)  ūüėč

I used a piece of potato bag as a stencil and sponged a small white border on the green part. "Whisper White" (Stampin'Up)
...I also added lines of arrows between the white and green area. (Stampin'Up)

I had no matching stamp for the sentiment and my printer was going crazy, 
so I punched the word LEMON, and wrote the rest of the text by hand.
I colored with felt-tip pens.


Hope you like my lemonade!

...and thanks for the visit!

♥ Just married ♥


Hello everyone!


A big party was held last weekend! - My nephew's wedding!


... here is the card I made for the lovers.


First I did a pink watercolor stain on a white cardstock panel. 
Then I added some darker pink splashes. 
After drying I glued the panel on the base card, 
then I added the feather, the twine and the sentiment which says: ... it looks like happiness
I punched the birds and the hearts and stuck them onto the feather, just above the twine.



... Long live the newlyweds!

...and thanks for your visit!

Smile


Hello everyone! 
Today I come with a funny little thing!




A pop-up cube card


This cube can be flattened so that it fits into an envelope or, as here, in a small box. 
As soon as you pull him out of the box, he jumps into its original shape! .... well, he should !




This is how the two flattened sides of the cube look!


I made all the smiles myself. 
Eyes, mouths, eyelids and eyelashes are drawn, colored, cut out 
...and then glued to the punched yellow circles. 





...and now the cube is in its box! ūüėČ



I found the tutorial on Youtube and I had huge fun to do this!!

Have a happy day! ;-)

Zootopia 
Zoomania / Zootopie

I used three Katzelkraft stamps for this little scene. (Cat, Rat and Wall) 
I colored them with felt-tip pens and fussy cut it. 
I embossed cat and rat and glued them, and the wall, on my card. 
The background (wood effect) and the sentiment (three different sets) are from Stampin'Up. 
The speech bubble is hand drawn.




Come and play with us,

Oops ...

I made these pots already in April and almost forgot to show them !! 



Hello everyone!


A made pot and a card for my sister in law,




...another pot with a card for my friend Cornelia,




...and a pot for my friend Gundi!


They look very realistic, but everything is just cardstock, even the pots!
...these succulents are quite easy to keep, just remove dust from time to time, that's all!

Stripes and/or Colors


Hello everyone!
Time for a new challenge at House of Cards!
Summer is here and as you can see, our inspiration photo (see below) shows a big parasol!
What interests us for this challenge are its stripes - but of course you can also use umbrellas and the colors of the photo for your creations! ;)



Here's my idea


I stuck masking tapes in regular distance on a white cardstock panel, 
then I sponged the colors (Stampin'Up) starting from the darker to the lighter. 
The cactus  image comes from the set "Au vert" by Scrap Plaisir. - It is colored with felt-tip pens. 
The sentiment is combined from Die cut letters and a tiny Stampin'Up stamp.
I added 3 sequins and few pearl pen dots for a bit more interest! ;)

Summer fun!



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


Couples Retreat 
All Inclusive / Thérapie de couples

some key words: Love, summer, sun, beach, ....


This time ...


I kept the same style as for the previous card, but with different ingredients ;)
Stamping'Up and Stampo - the surfboards have been slightly modified so that everything fits well.
I sponged the base card with Bermuda Bay then used a 13@rts stencil and Whisper White for the swirls.
The small beach hut is hand drawn. The sentiment is from Mia's Stempelk√ľche.
... well, I hope you like it.

You still have two full weeks to participate in this challenge and I hope I have managed to inspire you!

Thanks for stopping by.
