About Nuts....


Hello everyone!
I just wanted to remind you that you still have 2 weeks to participate in our current challenge at the Dream Factory.

The Nut Job
Operation Nußknacker - Opération Casse-Noisettes

You know you can use squirrels, rats or dogs - accompanied by a small hazel nut or nuts would be nice!



I used Katzelkraft's rats and cats to create this little scene. 
The two rats were stamped, colored and fussy cut and then glued on the card. 
Only the cat was directly stamped on the card. 
The large nut was die cut and the small one was hand drawn and then fussy cut. 
I stuck the nuts to the rats and added a bit shade on the ground. The sentiment is written by hand.


I hope you like it. 
Come and show us your creations - we look forward to them!

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! 😢


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 👀

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! 😉





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
Rosi
