Happy Birthday sweet little Mia

Hello everyone.

The sweet little girl of my niece celebrated her first birthday this week and of course I needed a funny card with lovely words! - Sure that she can not read it yet but for later, such things are always nice memories!

After stamping and coloring, I fussy cut the little "Smookie", embossed it slightly, glued foam pads on it and put it aside.  
Then I made a line by stamping the sentiment in several times onto a white cardstock. I took a circle, placed it over the line and stamped the stars arround. 
Next I colored the edges of the card base with "Melon Mambo" from SU and added dots with a darker felt tip pen. Then I stuck the white cardstock on the base card and added the little dragon, the cloud and the sun. As last step "I sewed" some faux stitching here and there.

It was really fun to do! :-)

Mother's Day

Hello erveryone.

Last Sunday was Mother's Day in Germany and of course my mommy got a card from me for her beautiful day !!

The cute little blonde is from Tiddly Inks and her name is Wryn. 
I colored it with felt pens and water, then I cut it out and put it into a small landscape.
The hills are colored with ink pads - sun, tree, butterfly and bird are stamps from different sets, which you can see below. - Hearts, shoes and hair clip are embellished with Glossy.

In France Mother's Day is celebrated only at the end of the month.

I would also like to welcome my new reader Elli Angel
(Sorry, no blog found - please let me know if you have one )

Happy weekend to you all!

Sorry I forgot the sentiment from Mia's Stempelküche and the butterfly from Rachelle Anne Miller.

When Alcohol Inks meet Yupo...'s just magical to see how the colors work!

Hi everyone!

Before Easter is too far, here is another card I wanted to share with you!

This time I played with my alcohol inks on Yupo paper.

I die-cut an oval for the egg from an ordinary paper, 
rounded one side and splashed some brown, blue and red ink on it. 
After drying I die-cut the bigger feather from the Yupo. - The two others were first stamped and then fussy-cut. 
I glued egg and feathers using foam pads on a white panel which was stamped with blue feathers, then I stuck the whole little package on the card. 
Finally, I stamped the sentiment with brown ink at the left side.

Thanks for visiting!

Easter Bunny

Hello everyone!

To revive a bit my blog, I've a little Easter card today. ;-)

As you may already know, to make my cards, I like to use images that I find on the net, but to respect the work of the artists, I first want to have their agreement before publishing the creations for which I used their images. 

Stacey Yacula, the mum of this little bunny, was very nice and accepted that I show you what I created with her cute baby! - Thank you so much Stacey !! 
She is a great artist and on her website you can find much more of these cute and funny creatures! - Visit her shop and you'll discover that she also designs beautiful rubber stamps! ;-)

Just for information: 
I did not copy this image with a computer! I only traced it by hand, using transparent paper and tracing paper. 
I used felt-tip pens and water to color the image.

Thank you for visiting!

Happy Birthday

Hello everyone!

We have a new challenge at House of Cards
In May we want to make it sparkle on our cards and so we would love to see sequins on your creations!

I made a shaker card for my grandson's birthday.

The background and the sentiment are made with stamps from Stampin'Up. The funny dog stamps are from Kartzelkraft. I fussy-cut them after coloring and added googly eyes to each.

.... here is our Inspiration photo

Add Sequins and/or Colors

...... and now let's make it sparkle ;-)

Easter Egg Box

Hi everyone!

Just a quick reminder for our current challenge at the Dream Factory.

Rise of guardians / Hüter des Lichts / Les cinq Légendes is still running for two weeks!

... and remember, you can use:
Easter Bunnies, Santas, Fairies, a Sandman, Children ....

I have one more inspiration for you.

Actually, I had a super cute Easter bunny for the reminder, but there is a copyright and I wanted to get the permission of the artist first, to publish the card I created with her image. Unfortunately, I still have no answer and instead a card, I show you this egg box, which I have embellished for Easter!
!! If I get a positive answer, I'll show you the card in a future post !!

The Box was filled with little things for card making, some handmade Easter characters and two chocolate eggs.

See you soon at the Dream Factory ;-)

Happy Holidays

Rise of the Guardians

The children were already printed on the vellum - I only added some blue snowflakes and the sentiment!

...and the last thing - a tiny sentence at the bottom of the image!

House of Cards # Feathers and/or colors

Hi everyone!
Where is gone March?? - We already have a new challenge at House of Cards!
This month we're coming with feathers and beautiful colors! (see the image below)

 .... my first thought was Easter!

Firstly, I put color stains and stamped feathers on the left side. 
Then I stamped the word Easter and embossed the white part of the card. 
The letters HAPPY are punched from black foam 
and as a small highlight I added three sequins and the chicken head.

...our inspiration photo

Feather Images and/or Colors

Hope I could inspire you - even if I have not adhered to the colors

Happy stamping!

Hi everybody!

Connected through their love for card making, blogging and being from Germany
Cornelia from Stempel Spass and Tanja from Little Art Cottage have created a monthly project within predefined requirements and they show their results every 3rd Sunday of the month!

Recently Cornelia asked me if I would like to participate in March as guest in their "Stamp Connection"
...this was so exciting for me --- and of cours I said YES! :-)

The requirement for this month was Acetat, but no Shaker Card!

Here is my contribution!

For this card I took a white base card and cut the front sheet at 2.5 cm from the top.
I cut the acetate panel in the size of the card and made the sun rays using a stencil and yellow alcohol ink.
Next, I cut two pieces of design paper and pasted all parts to the base card. I also added a piece of white paper on the back of the big panel, so that no adhesive strip can be seen on the inner side.
Then I die-cut the "sunshine" twice in yellow and once in black. I stuck the two yellow straight together and glued them slightly shifted onto the black one, to create a shadow!
I added the sentiment (a mix of different stamps and handwriting) and glued the "sunshine" next to it.

For more fun I decided to add the little raccoon! - He usually holds only one balloon but I wanted two of them! ;)
The little guy is colored with brown felt-tip pen and the balloons with "Bermuda Bay" and "Daffodil Delight" from Stamping'Up. - all fixed with foam pads.

Now I like it very well! - Do you like it too?

Dream Factory - Bambi

Hello everyone!

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


I started this card last year but at the time I did not like it too much - not knowing what to do with it, I put it aside.
As if by chance, there is the BAMBI challenge this month! 
.... so I took it back, added some stuff (sewing and pearl pen) - and voila, "Bambi's first winter"!

Fir and sentiment are from Stampin'Up and the stamp below the deers (Impression Obsession) is from Toga. The embossing is done with a piece of a packing net for onions. tee-hee

Bambi is a very beautiful animated movie - I'm sure you have tons of ideas!
See you soon!

Hi everyone!
Today's project is very quick and easy.......

To do this card,
I used the "INSIDE THE LINES" designer paper from Stampin'Up (Sale-a-bration)

I cut a  6 x 10 cm piece from the 30,5 x 30,5 cm sheet and colored it just partially with felt-tip pens. 
I stuck the image on a slightly larger gray paper and then on the white card! - It was super easy and fast to do!!

HI's me again!!

Today I was really immersed in cards! Three of a sudden - that has not happened for a long time!

Santa Claus lose his slippers! Haha

This card goes for the CCT Challenge
The Sunburst technique was not very easy for me because I'm not a real fan of patterned paper!
So I decided to emboss my paper! Some less embossed panels are stamped with tiny stars to give more interest. To spot the different pieces, I traced the lines with a gray felt-tip pen!

... I was also inspired by the layout and the Santa bonnet on Cornelia's funny card at Muse! ....and yes,  the bulbs look a bit like balloons upside down! *laughs* --- Ha, there is even the same sentiment, but this is quite by chance!

Oops, I'm late!

Hello everybody!

Sometimes it happens that we forget a birthday date, in this case a card like that can save you!

I played with the sketch at Less is More for this card.
To create the line, I stamped the sentiment twice - once in the correct position and once upside down!
The circle is illustrated by the stars.

99 Luftballons

.... auf ihrem Weg zum Horizont!

Hallo allerseits!   ....heute mal auf deutsch und französisch! :)

Bei Gundi gibt es derzeit eine Challenge bei der Luftballons gewünscht sind. Schaut doch gleich mal auf Ihren Blog - sie hat tolle Anregungen dazu gemacht, bei deren Anblick man schnell Lust auf's kreieren bekommt!

Bonjour à tous!   ...aujourd'hui en allemand et en français! :)

Chez Gundi il ya actuellement un défi où les ballons sont souhaités. Jetez un œil sur son blog - elle a fait d'exellentes suggestions! Rien qu'a les voir, on a tout de suite envie de créer quelque chose!!

Ich bin mit dieser Karte dabei ....und vielleicht werden es sogar noch mehr! ;)
Je participe avec cette carte peut-être il y auras encore plus! ;)

Die Luftballons sind mit Hilfe einer selbstgemachten Schablone und drei verschiedenen Farben entstanden. Die Katze habe ich zuerst auf Papier gestempelt, koloriert und dann ausgeschnitten. Ihre Augen habe ich mit etwas Glossy bearbeitet und unter ihren Pfoten hab ich ein bisschen grüne Wasserfarbe verteilt. Die Kartenränder habe ich mit Bermuda Bay gewischt. Blieb nur noch der Text: "Möge dein Tag perfekt sein"

Les ballons sont fabriqués à l'aide d'un pochoir fait maison et trois couleurs différentes. J'ai estampillé le chat sur papier puis je l'ai colorié et découpé. J'ai ajouté du Glossy à ses yeux et j'ai étalé un peu d'aquarelle verte sous ses pattes. J'ai frotté les bords de la carte avec Bermuda Bay et j'ai ajouté le texte "Que ton jour soit parfait"

... ich hoffe ich habe euch Lust auf Luftballons gemacht :))
... j'espère que je vous-ai donne envie de faire des ballons :))

Hey chick!

February has passed very fast and it is already time for a new challenge at House of Cards!
As each month, we have an image and / or colors as inspiration for you. - This time it's about creating a scene, and for that I will introduce my chickens, who have recently moved in here! :)

To create my scene, I used colors from the inspiration image (see below) 
and the new set from Stampin'Up, which I got at the last sale-a-bration. - Just love it!
The Easter sentiment is from Mia's Stempelküche.

Our inspiration for March

Just For You

Hello everyone!

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

The Beauty and the Beast  
... I was inspired by the rose.

Wow, very strong colors today!! - a bit unusual for me, but it was sooo cool to do it!

To do the background, I tried to create a kind of twilight that is diffused through stained-glass.
I colored the background with a light blue felt-tip pen and I ended by sponging the edges with "Deep Lagoon" 'Versafine) and "Lightening Black" (Dew Drop Tsukineko)
The rose is also colored with felt-tip pens. 

Products I used: (Sorry, I forgot the stamp for the sentiment - it says "just for you" and is from Stampin'Up) - I don't know the manufacturer from the rose stamp, it was a gift.

A little something....

Hi everyone!
I just wanted to show you what I did for my sweetheart on Valentine's Day!

Very small but ..... it had its effect!! 

..... especially when you open it! 
(Please click on photos to enlarge)

Super easy to do and looks very chic!

It is quite by chance that I found the instructions for this beautiful little box at Stempeleinmaleins - a real gold mine regarding tutorials - with German and English instructions! --- I really should go there more often!!

After making my box, I wrapped it with a stripe of paper that I made as follows:
I dabbed the paper stripe with "Blushing Bride" (Stampin'Up) and added tiny hearts with a stencil and modeling paste - which dryed very quickly!
I added ribbon, linen thread, a label for the "pour toi" (for you), a die-cut leaf and a heart sticker. - I really like how it looks!

Products used: (The stamps inside the box are from Stampin'Up).
