Don't Stop Music #2

Hello everyone!
It's me again, with a second card for the Dream Factory challenge reminder :)
You can see the first one here.

I protected the center of my card with a round punched piece of Washi tape. 
I laid plain paper - in whitch I first cut a hole, then I colored the round surface with black felt-tip pen - .... and added flowing black tracks at the bottom of the disk.
I traced dancers on transparent paper, copied them to the card with tracing paper and colored them in black. - I used the same technique for the words and the mouth! 
Grid and splashes are made with stamps.

Thanks for your visit  <3

Don't Stop Music

Hello everyone!
I would like to remind you of our current challenge at the Dream Factory. - This month's movie is

Save The Last Dance

The key words are:  
Music, Dancing, Love, Hip Hop, Ballet, America, Black & White.....

This time I made two cards...

For my first card I used a black card. I stamped the whole right side with Birthday Wishes. 
I added a piece of torn and aged note. The guitar is stamped three times, cut out and colored with different colors. The star is die-cut and scribbled with felt-tip pens. The "Don't Stop Music" is stuck with self-adhesive foam pads.

Do you want to join us? - You still have two weeks left!
The second card comes right away ;)

Stamps: All Stampin'Up except the note sheet stamp that I bought at the chip market
Inks: Whisper White (Stampin'Up) and Felt-tip pens
Dies: Scrap Plaisir

Birthday Wishes...

Hello everyone!
No challenge today :))
I would like to show you a birthday card that I made for my aunt. She loves dogs and had one herself - a clever little guy, who sadly went over the rainbow bridge two years ago...

To create this card, I used 3 of my Katzelkraft dogs. 
I first stamped the dogs on plain paper to make masks with them. With the help of these masks I could then place the dogs and the grass as you see it on the card. I watercolored with Felt-tip pens. 
The balloons are also made with masks. - I sponged them with three different inks and then stamped half of the sentiment on the biggest one. 
.... the second half is stamped under the belly of the streched dog.
The background is gently sponged with light blue ink. 

My aunt loved this card - maybe you love it too.
Thanks for your visit!

Last Dance

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

Save The Last Dance

I have some key words for you:  
Music, Dancing, Love, Hip Hop, Ballet, America, Black & White.....

... and of course I have a card too! ;)

I kept it in black and white .... or almost! - Just the arms and legs of the girl got a little color. There are also some stars and a moon.
I scribbled some skyscrapers in the background and watercolored them with black felt-tip pens.
Then I stamped the girl and used the paper piecing technique for her skirt. - That is, you stamp the same image on patterned paper and cut out the part that you want to use and paste it onto the image you want to keep.
To finish I added tiny rhinestones and the handwritten saying.

Have fun creating!

Stamps: The girl, the Stars, the Moon (Stampin'Up)

Hi !

Hello everyone,
it's time to make a Christmas card - that's good, at Muse Christmas Visions they ask for that!

I was inspired by the sleeping Santa Claus from Muse Cornelia and thought: why not send him on holiday! 
.....I think he is very thrilled about my idea! 😎

First I sponged the background with two different shades of blue. Then I added sandpaper for the beach. I stamped two coconut palms and between them Santa's underwear on a clothesline. - He did a dive while waiting for his clothes!
I also added a burning sun (to dry the laundry - haha), some white gel pen strokes on the water, shells, grass and a small sentiment. I colored with felt-tip pens.

....this is MUSE Cornelia's card - I had so much fun CASEing it!

Enjoy every moment...

Hello everyone!
We have a new challenge at House of Cards and this time we would like to see patterned papers on your cards. (see the inspiration photo below)
As always, you can use only the colors or just the topic ......and why not, combine both!!

That's good - I have a full box of patterned paper scraps!

I cut different patterned paper scraps into a cushion shape and colored them (some) half with a darker color. Then I glued various twine (wool, gold cord, paper cord, etc.) to separate the colored half from the patterned one. 
I stamped the text - Enjoy every moment - on a piece of white paper, added a seam at the bottom, embossed the paper and pasted it on the card.
I glued the pillows together, sat the kitty on top of the pile and added a few glitter glue dots to the upper cushion.
I did not really stick to the color palette this time, because the papers I used were more in brown - red - green tones.

Surely you have such a box full of patterned paper leftovers - that would be a good opportunity to use a few of them. 😉
