...on the dance floor

Hello everyone!
February is over, but you still have until March 15th to join our current challenge at the Dream Factory!

This month's movie is Grease and you can use the following key words: 
Music, Dance, Cars, 50s, High School, Love .....

I did two ATC for this reminder.

This one is made with a Kraftin' Kimmie stamp and colored with Twinmarkers (Alcohol Markers).
It is set on three more layers of paper - turquoise, black and checkerboard.
 The background of the image and the checkerboard are colored with black felt-tip pen.
The tiny sentiment is written by hand.

I found this image on internet and copied it by hand. It is also colored with Twinmarkers and has a narrow strip of washi tape at the bottom. It is set on three more layers of paper - black, yellow and checkerboard.

Nice to see you here and I hope to see you also at the Dream Factory 😉

Colorful Christmas Card

Hello everyone!
I do not know what happened today but I needed colors. - It must be said that time is so bad since weeks, that we beginn to need colorful things .....!

I was inspired by Cornelia's card at Muse Christmas Visions - I really flashed on her colorful creations!

I used a Scrap Plaisir stamp for the firs and felt-tip pens for coloring them. 
I trimmed the image to a small rectangle and glued a piece of black paper underneath. 
I embossed the card, added a tiny sentiment and then stuck the firs.

... and I'm pretty happy with the result!

Thank you for stopping by!

Good old times!

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

Music, Dance, Cars, 50s, High School, Love.....

I made a trip to the fifties! 

Outfits, cars, music, to have fun --- I just love those years! 
.... and I loved making this card!

There is no stamp on this card! The image is a mix of several images (found on Google and Pinterest) that I copied as well as the sentiment (a Dafont font) by hand. The checkerboard which serves as a background is drawn by hand. The sentiment is colored and fussy cut, then fixed with foam pads.
The vinyl is cut from black cardstock and sponged with white ink to evoke a slight glow of light. 
I used my alcohol inks for coloring.

Maybe you like the 50's too - I can not wait to see what you're going to do!
See you soon!

Nail Polish Marbling

Hello everyone!
In the last days I had fun trying something new (for me)  -- Nail Polish Marbling!
... I only can show you the finished cards because in my euphoria, I completely forgot to take photos. 😏

Voilà the result!

I used three nail polish for marbling: Copper, pearly pink and turquoise. 
The pearly pink is barely visible because it was very transparent, but I must say that for a first try, 
I am very satisfied!

.....15 cards for a New Year's card swap!

I really had fun to do this and if you want to try too, look at this tutorial, it explains very well how to do!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello everyone!
Hard to believe that January is already over!  ... do not know where time flies!

Today I used stamps from Scrap Plaisir and my Brand New Alcohol Markers that I got from my niece Karola for Christmas!
It's my second try with these markers and I have to say I enjoy it! 
Ok, I'm still very timid with them but with more practice I'll get that out for sure! 
....Do not look so closely for today 😉

The striped part at the bottom of the card is made with a stencil (Heidi Swapp) that I have moved several times to make some sort of carpet or something similar to it.
Baubles, stars and glasses are embellished with Wink of Stella.

Hello everyone!
There is a new challenge at House of Cards and for the month of Love 
we have lips and/or pink for you.  (see the inspiration photo below)

Guess how I created this card! 

Having no adequate stamps and no special ideas, I thought: 
there are lips on the photo - what if I used my lips to create my card??
I did a test on a small piece of paper having previously inked my lips with water-based ink and 
......did not find it too bad!
So I went to the full-scale test and kissed my paper several times with different inks - and voilà the result!
.....but imagine the state of my mouth - it looked like I had fallen into a pot of paint! hahaha.
I added a tiny heart in the lower right corner and I wrote XOXO by hand.

Now it's your turn - we look forward to your creations for Valentine's Day!
