DotMCC - Challenge #9 - Reminder

Hello everyone!

...did you already have an idea for our new challenge? 
Here is my second card as inspiration and to remind you to our 

Look for Circles Day 

It must be the fun cows from Stampin'Up! - That was my thought for this birthday card! 
They look through the holes I punched out of the embossed panel. 
I watercolored the cows with felt-tip pens, fussy-cut and put them behind the circles, letting some parts stand out. 
The MOO is punched out of brown foam. 

I had a lot of fun creating this card and wish you just as much fun with our new challenge! 
Hope you find some time to play along! - You'll find all information on the Challenge Blog....

There is ALWAYS a reason to celebrate!

Joyeux Noël

Hello everyone!
Are your Christmas cards ready yet? No...?! There are only a few weeks left - take the opportunity and join us at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown! This week we want to see these two colors:

Purple & White

I started by smooshing alcohol inks on photo paper. As I didn't have purple, I made some mixes - poppyfield, mermaid and silver. I think it looks pretty purple! 
I die-cut two firs out of this paper and a third one out of white glitter paper, of which I only kept the edge.
Then I die-cut the sentiment out of purple cardstock and white glitter paper and glued them together with a slight shift - the main ingredients of my card were done.
I embossed a panel of white paper, added a ribbon at the bottom and glued the trees (one of them with foam pads) and the sentiment. The three small stars are the cut-outs from the big star of the sentiment.

Here a closer view of the shimmering colors on the glossy paper.

Have fun with the colors!

DotMCC-Challenge #9 - Look for Circles Day

Hello everyone!
Welcome to our 9th Day of the Month Card Club challenge! Our new theme is:

Look for Circles Day
Celebrated on November 2nd.

Look for Circles day is one of those days that gets you really observing the world in a new way. 
Keep your eyes open when you travel or walk, you will see, circles are everywhere! There are the obvious ones like the sun, the tires on the car, a record, a coffee cup or a button... and those that are less visible — the ripple of a raindrop or pebble dropped in a puddle, knots on trees, soap bubbles, the center of a flower.....

Many circles on this card - more than 50, if I counted right....
I sponged a small panel with Distress Oxide and splattered white and red ink on it. After drying, I fussy-cut the hand-drawn and watercolored flowers and stuck them on the panel. I drew the stems of the flowers and stamped the circles and the tiny leaves, into which I also drew very small circles. Finally I stamped the sentiment and drew a thin black line along the edges. I added an embossed panel between the image and the base card.

Have lots of fun with our new challenge!
.....I'm sure you'll see many more circles than usual from now on! 😉

There is ALWAYS a reason to celebrate!

Fröhliche Weihnacht...

Hello everyone!
It's cold, it's raining and the weather is so bad that you don't even want to take the dog out of the house - in other words, a fantastic weather for crafting!
That's perfect, because we have a new challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown and since it's the first Saturday of the month, it's a sketch!

Today I set my mind on using a design paper! - I have so much of this stuff and it always stays where it is - in the shelf!!
My God, what have I done! Design paper and me - we really don't go well together!
...and yet I have managed something let's say "acceptable"!
Now from the very beginning! First I tore the two fir trees out of a piece of paper that had been on my table for weeks. It was a failed attempt with a stencil and Distress Oxide inks for another project, but I can't throw anything away! The frame in the background is also something unfinished, and as I was in the recycling phase, it went straight to the new project.
I didn't want to squeeze the sentiment into the little tag and decided on a funny sticker. Below it a strip of Washi and a star, punched out of foam. The sentiment found its place in the upper part of the card!

Have fun with our sketch!!

Don't be afraid...

Hello everyone!
I would like to remind you of our current challenge at the Dream Factory!
Our movie theme this month is: 

The Little Witch
Witches, ravens, sorcery.... you know, it's Halloween!

I die-cut a circle and used it as a mask on my panel. I sponged the whole area with Fresh Fig and Pumkin Pie (Stampin'Up). I removed the masking and made some fog with the edge of an old credit card, a bit Fresh Fig and black ink. I stamped the branch, the owl, the tree, the leaves, the grave, the stone wall and the sentiment. Then it was the bird's (Katzelkraft) turn. To make it look like a raven, I colored it with black, gray and violet felt-tip pens and then fussy-cut it. I stuck it to the panel and put a spider in his beak. The owl is also colored with felt-tip pens. Finally I masked the moon again, splattered white ink on the panel and glued it on the base card.

Hope you like it!

Be Brave!

Hello everyone!
Today I created just for myself, not for one of the challenges where I am a member of the design team. Look what has come out!

Well, do you like my pink Halloween card?

I did the background with Distress oxide Picked Raspberry and sponged the edges with Berry Burst and Fresh Fig (Stampin'Up). The two trees and the stone wall below are Katzelkraft stamps.  The stonewall is colored with Smokey Slate and Tranquil Tide (Stampin'Up). The cobweb, the cemetery, the falling leaves and the bat are from Scrap Plaisir. The two flying bats are made with a stencil I made myself. Before I stuck the label  with the sentiment on, I added a few black and white splashes. 
I like it ....and you?

It's a wonderful time

Hello everyone!
Oh my god, how time runs fast!!! We already have a new challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. This week it's about Smooshing and we want to see that fun technique on your Christmas cards.

If you don't know this technique, you can watch these videos to learn it, it's really super easy!
Ink Smooshing Technique using Distress Inks
Smooshing with Inka Gold

The panel for the small background had been on my table for some time. It was made with Distress Oxide inks and a stencil from Craft Sensations - I thought it would fit well here!
I cut it to size, backed it with black paper and stamped a sentiment from Craft Sensations. 
I dit my smooshing with Tranquil Tide (Stampin'Up) and some gold pigments. After drying, I diecut the two firs and stuck them to the small panel. I added an embossed sheet between the small panel and the base card.

Happy smooshing!!!

A Special Day...

Hello everyone!
Today I have a little birthday card that has been waiting for so long to be shown!

The flower is punched from a piece of paper colored with Brushos. I inserted the cut pieces so that the flower doesn't look too empty. I glued it onto a piece of torn paper and stamped the sentiment. I stuck this on a panel embossed to a third and glued this to the base card. 

The card was accompanied by a few small surprise packs, full of useful things for our favourite hobby and to relax! ....and my lavender was still beautiful enough to make and add a few lavender spindles...
