Fast and Furious - Reminder

Hi friends.

Terrible!!!! In two weeks I have not even done one card!?!?!?! --- that has to change, I agree with you !! ;)
So, let's go on with the reminder at the Dream Factory. is the card I made as inspiration

This car is not a stamp! - Look at the original!
I used tracing paper, some coloring pencils (black and grey) and permanent marker 
for the outer lines, tire and some other details. -- Tire tracks and sentiment are stamped.

Fast and Furious 
is our theme and you still have another fortnight to do something for this topic.

Have a nice week and thanks for watching!

Hi friends.
Today is the 15. of the month and that means that we have a new challenge at the Dream Factory for you.
For the next four weeks we selected "Fast and Furious", - a perfect movie for masculine creations!

Cars, gears, speed, roads, guys .... and of course pretty girls --- stuff for men, not true?!
These are just some key words to inspire you. I'm sure you still find other ideas which I have not thought!

And now, let's go to meet a not always easy challenge ... !

This is a very imposing stamp which requires much space, so I decided to keep the card as simple as possible.
A bit of blue ink SU on an acrylic block, which I sprayed with water and pressed on white paper. - My background was born and I just had to add the car and the word stamp!
Subsequently, I stuck the image on the card, which is fitted with aluminum foil and embossed.

The same with orange background on only one layer.

Thanks for your visit and for the ever so nice comments!
Happy weekend to all of you

Ein besonderer Tag!

Mama, Mutti, Mami, Mutter, Mütterlein, Mum .....egal welchen lieben Namen wir ihr geben,
es ist immer dieselbe liebevolle Person die darauf antwortet.
In Deutschland ist heute Muttertag und ich wünsche allen Müttern, Mamas, Mums einen wunderbaren Tag.
......Lasst euch ruhig ein bisschen verwöhnen, ihr habt es verdient ;)

Meine Mutti ist leider sehr weit von mir entfernt und ich kann ihr nur eine Karte schicken, 
welche aber mit viel Liebe und Herz gemacht wurde!

Alles auf dieser Karte (Stanzen, Papier, Spitze, Band) 
habe ich von meinem letzten Deutschland Aufenthalt mitgebracht! :))
Die tollen Stanzen habe ich von meiner Nichte Karola bekommen und die anderen Schnäppchen fand ich in verschiedenen Geschäften. - Schade, dass man hier in Frankreich nicht so leicht, und vor allem so billig fündig wird!

Ich wünsch euch einen wunderschönen Sonntag und lasst es euch gut gehen ;)
Bis bald, Rosi

HOC - May Challenge -- Clear Papers.

Hi friends, it's time for a new challenge at House of Cards.

This month we would like to see vellum or acetate on your cards!

....some flowers for my sister's 50th birthday

This card is made on a white base, on which I added a lime green gingham and a tiny black strip.
I stamped 3 big flowers with green on yellow vellum and with yellow on white vellum and I heat-embossed them with clear embossing powder.

Then I die-cut all the flowers and leaves with the beautiful "Botanical Builder Framelits Dies" from Stampin'Up.
Next I colored the back of the three vellum flowers with a yellow felt-tip pen
and finally each flower got a black center, colored with white chalk marker.
The sentiment is also from SU.

... a robot for my grand-son's 10th birthday.

I used acetate for this very simple shaker card - I think he'll love!

...and shabby flowers for mum's 80th birthday

There is not much vellum on this card but I want to show you.
Some heart stems and two leaves are cut out from vellum and here too,
I used the Stampin'Up Framelites for the flowers and the leaves. (Heart stems Impression Obsession)
The roses are handmade from ribbons - by myself.

On this and the next photo, you have a closer look on the different arrangements.

For special days and my loved ones, I really love to create this kind of cards! 

As you can see, we celebrated many anniversaries with round numbers this year in our family, 
and we're waiting for another big 60th in August!! 
....Let's celebrate!!!!

Hope you like it.
