Don't we look Moo-velous?

Hello everyone!
The days and weeks are running by and I wanted to play with Twofer for quite some time. Today I finally made it!

My critters come from Stampin'Up and I made these two cards with them.

The first is a "How's it going?" card.
I colored the cows with alcohol markers and then fussy cut them before I put them behind the picket fence. The MOO letters are punched out of black foam. A few tufts of grass in front of the fence were also a must!

The second card is a birthday card. I masked a lot and stamped the cows several times behind and next to each other. I also colored them with alcohol markers, but the background is watercolored. The panel is backed with black cardstock and then glued on a white base card. 

The cows have actually only dots as eyes but I wanted to give them more expression. I closed them for some and opened them wide for others.

I hope you like my Moo's

How's it going?

Hello everyone!
There is a new challenge at the Dream Factory. This month's movie is:

Free Birds
Keywords are: Turkeys, Thanksgiving, Birds...

The background of my card is made with Brusho's. It is one of my first attempts with Brusho pigments - I put a bit too much of it on the paper - LOL ! 
It has been lying on my table for a long time and is waiting for its use - that I finally found today.
First I applied some designs with a stencil and white ink. Then I stamped black leaves around the hand-drawn hole. I added a few white splashes before I put the ostrich from Katzelkraft into the hole.
As sentiment I die-cut a white "Hi", stamped the rest on a small label and cut it into pieces. 
Voilà, I hope you like it!

Maybe you have some time to play along with us....
Have fun with our new topic!!

Black & White

Hello everyone!
Sorry, I'm a little late today... :(
Black and White is wanted at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this week!

I designed two really very simple cards for this...

For the first card I stamped the snowflakes and the sentiment several times with Cloud White on a black cardstock. Before I stuck the black panel on the white card, I tied a ribbon with a nice knot between the sentiment and the snowflakes.

With the second card I did the opposite. I masked the border of the white cardstock and stamped small trees and stars in black. I framed the stamped area with a black marker and glued then the panel onto a white card whose edges I had previously coloured black. I stamped the sentiment on two small labels, stapled them together and stuck them on the card with foam pads.

Christmas is coming soon!
Enjoy playing with us every week, so you'll have all your cards by the end of the year! ;)

Have Fun!!

DotMCC - Challenge #7 - Reminder

Hello everyone!
Just a little reminder on our current Read a Book challenge at Day of the Month Card Club!

Cats like quiet places! What could be better than spreading out on a pile of books to have good dreams! 

I used a cat and mouse from Katzelkraft's stamp set "Les chats russes".
If you know them, you probably noticed that the cat has closed eyes, while on the stamp it has an open eye. I masked the open eye with a piece of tape before I inked the stamp and so it got two closed eyes! I stamped the cat, drew the books under it by hand, then stamped the mousse and fussy cut them all. I colored with alcohol markers.
I inked the lower part of the blue background directly with a black ink pad and then embossed the upper part with stars, which I surrounded with a white gel pen. I die-cut the letters out of white foam, glued everything onto the blue panel and then glued it onto a white card.

Besides reading, I hope you also have some time to play along with us 😉

There is ALWAYS a reason to celebrate!

How about a good book?

Hello everyone!
First a big thank you for all the healthy herbes you shared with us during the previous challenge! 🌿🎍🍃 really came up with great ideas!!

And now, welcome to our 7th Day of the Month Card Club challenge.

Our new theme is:

Read a Book Day
celebrated on 6th September

Dive into another world, fantasy to make our everyday life more exciting, enjoy a moment of peace, expand your vocabulary or develop better writing skills - all this is possible with books! 

The books are hand-drawn and fussy cut. The stamp for the strip underneath is from Craft Sensations. The cactus and the sentiment are from Scrap Plaisir. I colored with alcohol markers, embossed a narrow part of the left edge and placed a thin black strip next to the books.
The sentiment says: Switch off, have a good coffee, listen to music & read a good book

I hope you have some time between two books to join in,

There is ALWAYS a reason to celebrate! 😉

Christmas in the heart...

Hello everyone!
A new challenge starts at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown - this week we have a sketch for you!

I turned the sketch two or three times and finally decided on the basic view. 
The idea with the stockings emerged while turning the sketch, from then on everything was clear! 
...had a few doubts with the sentiment but finally I thought that this one fits well!

Hope you like it 

Have fun with our new sketch!

In the storm...

Hello everyone!
Sorry, I'm a little late! I totally omitted to post the reminder for our current challenge at the Dream Factory! - our movie theme this month is White Squall

I chose a lighthouse.... 

Today there are modern sonars on which sailors can see the dangers of the depth far in advance, but in earlier times many ships would have been lost on the coasts without lighthouses!
The background is a failed attempt with alcohol inks on torn photo paper. It has been waiting for a second chance for a few months now - today was its big day, I could put it on this card and behold, it fits like a glove! 

You still have two weeks to play! - Have fun!

You are magical!

Hello everyone!
Finally Jeanne (my granddaughter) and I found time to make a card. A little forced, I have to say because our plan was to go to the playground this morning. The weather played a bad trick on us and so we stayed home and were creative.
.....more she than I, in this case!

She stamped, she colored, she punched, she embossed, she glued.... 
....and I trimmed the card to size!! - What a great team we made!! 
I think her friend Scarlett will love this pretty card!

Season to Believe - Joseph's coat technique

Hello everyone!
The last challenge for this month begins today on 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.
It's a technique challenge called Joseph's coat and you have almost two weeks to try this fabulous technique!
Here is a very good tutorial on how to use this technique to create a gorgeous multi-colored background.

For my part, I only used red, beige and black because I didn't want too many colors. 
I sponged two thirds of a white panel with Real Red and the upper third with Sahara Sand (both Stampin'Up). I added some black spots and lines to the red part. I then heat-embossed the whole panel with the Merry Medley background stamp from Stampin'Up, using Versamark and clear embossing powder. After that I sponged the lower, red/black part completely with Onyx Black (Versafine). I removed the excess ink with a dry paper towel - the embossed design on the first colour came out well again. 
I kept the upper part as it was and added a ribbon to the intermediate line. I glued the finished panel onto a slightly larger piece of gold glitter cardstock and then onto the white card. 
I stamped the Season to Believe part with black ink on red cardstock, trimmed it to size, backed it with gold glitter cardstock and stuck it to the card with foam pads.

I love the result - hope you like it too!

Have fun with our new challenge - remenber, this time you have a fortnight to play with us!
