Dream Factory - Reminder

A very quick reminder for the current challenge at the Dream Factory.
It's about school, children, students, teachers and so on!

Not many work for this card! Just a few colors and some sequins :)
I found the image on this blog - maybe you like it...

You still have 2 weeks for creating something. 
Stitching, crochet, embroidery, cards, boxes, altered things - you know, all is welcome!

I wish you a happy day and - Have Fun!

Birthday card for a male ...

Tomorrow is my nephew's birthday - so, I needed a male card!

....never easy these kind of cards!! But....

tadaa,  - here she is!!

A scrap of corrugated cardboard, a little piece of a die-cut border, a bit hemp yarn with a knot - that's all you need! And of course a card and cardstock to stick the snippets! ;)
After embossing my card (is not necessary), I glued the corrugated cardboard on a piece of white paper. On that, I added the black die-cut and the knotted yarn. Then I glued this piece on a white cardstock which has been doubled with just a little bigger gray cardstock. The bold letters H. B. were made with a stencil and I also added a H@PPY B-D@Y just below!

Do you like it?

The challenge at LIM this week is Technology - I am thrilled to enter with my gears :)

See you soon, Rosi

Red and White

.... are the colors of the new Challenge at 52 CCT! The third color comes to a free choice - it can be any color, but not green!

Look, this is what I've done!

As a third color I chose gold - so that it also sparkles a bit!! ;)
To do this, I simply used some stickers from my stash! - But first I had to stamp the sentiment and emboss my card! Next, I added a stripe of design paper, which edges I gently sponged in dark brown.
- and at last, I added the two Christmas tree sticker!

Hope you like it!

Traumfabrik Challenge # 24

Hello there!
Time for a new challenge at the Dream Factory - this month we have a German Blockbuster for you!!

"Fack ju Göhte"
(germanized and intentional misspelling of Fuck you, Goethe) 

Starting school, Graduations, Diplomas, Congratulations, etc. - everything that has to do with school is welcome here! 

... and this is what I've done!

I found this cute little guy on Pinterest, but I was not able to find the author of this picture. I simply colored the image with felt-tip pens and glued it on the embossed card.
The "C'EST PARTI"  (Let's go) is from SU.

A little card for a school beginner or congrats for a Graduated student? - There are many occasions in this time!!!
We're looking forward to see your ideas!

Oh la la,

how could I forget the new challenge "Early Holiday Wishes" at Simply Create Too?!?!?! 
I should be more careful next time! - because in addition, my card has been ready for a while!!

There it is!

I only used brown cardstock for my card. Two from the four front panels are stamped with "Early Espresso" from SU, - I used different Christmas sentiments for the upper left panel, and the other two panels are inked with "Early Espresso" and then heat embossed with gold embossing powder. - The deer is from Hero Arts. and there a bit sponging with "Early Espresso" and voilà tout! - Hope you like it!

...see you soon :)

Nach Blau kommt Grün.... ;)

Heute habe ich eine Karte für die Challenge bei Less is More gemacht.
Grün & Gold heißt es da und was passt besser zu diesen Farben als eine Weihnachtskarte?!

Après le bleu vient le vert .... ;)
Aujourd'hui, j'ai fait une carte pour le défi a Less is More
Vert & or est demandée et qu'est ce qui convient mieux pour ces couleurs, qu'une carte de Noël?!

Die Stempel sind alle aus dem Set "Open Sleigh" von Stampin'UP.
Merry Christmas ist Gold embosst und für die Socken habe ich "Spanish Moss" von Versafine verwendet.

Les estampilles viennent tous de l'ensemble "Open Sleigh" de Stampin'UP.
Merry Christmas est embossé avec de la poudre d'or, et pour les chaussettes j'ai utilisé "Spanish Moss" de Versafine.

Der leicht strukturierte Hintergrund wurde mit Hilfe eines Knoblauchsäckchens erzielt! - Sie sind wie Kartoffeltaschen aus Kunststoff und können sehr gut zum Prägen verwendet werden!

Le fond légèrement texturée a été obtenu à l'aide d'un sachet d'ail! - Ils sont comme des sacs de pommes de terre en plastique et peuvent être très bien utilisées pour le gaufrage!

Ich bedanke mich für all eure netten Kommentare und wünsche euch einen schönen Sonntag,
Je vous remercie pour tous vos gentils commentaires et vous souhaite un agréable dimanche,

HO ho ho,

there is a new challenge at CASE-ing Christmas and that means that I'll show you a new Christmas card! ;)

This month, our CASE is a gorgeous winter card from Mynn! (See below)
Look, what I made with it!

I also used a snowman and I kept the same color scheme! 
Under the snowman, there is a layer of blue hologram foil -- for the shine! ;)  
Some embossed and stamped snowflakes, a bit glitter, a hint of color for the snowman and the card was finished! 
The bold sentiment is a Toga stamp and the trees are SU. 
--- Oups, I almost forgot .... the snowman is from Penny Black!

..... focus on the glitter!

Mynn's "Frosty the snowman" :)

Christmas is not far away - Come and play with us!

See you soon,

Do you like stitching? the new challenge at House of Cards is for you -- and for all those who doesn't like sewing, no worries, we would love to see faux stitching too! 

Here my cards to inspire you.

For my first card, I took two die cut panels of cardstock and sewed them together onto the card.  On the yellow paper I retained the punched piece, but on the blue I removed it! - I love the contrast that it gives!

For my second card, I stuck washi tape at the bottom of the brown cardstock and traced a circle! Then I sewed around this circle a few time. After that, I removed all the washi that was outside of the circle - so the body of the bird was done!  It remained to sew the tail, beak and feet!
To finish the card, I glued the panel with the bird on the embossed card, then I added, some faux stitching on the left and right borders, the button and at last the sentiment.

Hope this will inspire you!
Now, take your sewing machine or your "sewing" stamps and take the challenge :)
We are eager to see your créations!
