Don't mess with the chef!!

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

No Reservations
Rezept zum Verlieben
Le Goût de la vie

Keywords are: Cooking, Friendship, Family, Love...

I think it is better not to irritate him! Hahaha

I found the little chef, the grill and the sentiment on the internet, copied it by hand and then put it all together to a little scene. I watercolored with felt-tip pens - except for the sky, which is sponged with Tempting Turquoise (SU)! The sentiment is handwritten!
To spice it up, I stamped a few tufts of grass into the green area! - I hope you like my little chef! 

Have FUN! 
You still have two more weeks to play with us!

Merry Christmas

Hello everyone!
I'll show you another card I made for this week's 52Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge.

...somewhat different but also very simple! 
I applied three Disress Oxide colors on an acrylic block, sprayed some water on it and then pressed on the white panel to get the background. After drying I stamped the big sentiment, Santa and his gloves. 

I painted Santa's beard with ice-white pearl-pen, added some sequins, backed the panel with black cardstock and glued it to the base card. 

Hope you like it...
Have much fun!

'Tis the season

Hello everyone!
Like every Saturday we have a new challenge today on 52Christmas Card Throwdown.
This week's theme is: Watercolour

A very simple card! I stamped the trees, the fox and the stars and then drew the path and the fence with black fineliner. I coloured the sky and the snow with watercolours. I stamped the sentiment and stuck a strip of black glitter washi tape to the lower edge. Very easy, isn't it?! 

Wish you much fun!

Alles zum Geburtstag!

Hello everyone!
I made this card for my son's birthday. He loves cats and has been dreaming about having a little "house tiger" for a long time...

This funny little gang is here to congratulate him on his birthday!

I used the whole Katzelkraft set (Les Chats Russes) and stamped the cats on the card using masks. 
Artemio's branch fitted perfectly to put the mouse on the card as well! 
I colored with colored pencils....something I rarely do, I know! The sentiment is from SU. 
I'm sure he'll love it!! :)

Sweet Treats

Hello everyone!
Saturday is 52Chistmas Card Throwdown day and here is my inspiration for our new challenge.
The theme is: Sweet treats

I decided for a shaker card - that jar was so suitable to put my sweets in! 

The peppermint candies are die-cut circles which I coloured with felt-tip pens. 
The candy canes are stamped and fussy cut. 
I filled my jar with all these goodies and added some sequins for more fun. 
I covered the jar with a piece of paper towel and attached it with a gold cord. 
The small label serves as base for the sentiment.
I sponged the background panel with Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide and spritzed some white ink on it. 
I die-cut two circles from white cardstock for the lower part of the card - it reminds of snowhills. 
The upper part is embellished with a die-cut snowflake border (Memory Box). 
Finally I glued the shaker and a little robin on the snow hills.

...and now I'm looking forward to your sweet treats! ....have fun!!

Let's cook...

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

No Reservations
Rezept zum Verlieben
Le Goût de la vie

Keywords are: Cooking, Friendship, Family, Love...

Except the sentiments, I used the whole stamp set "Perfect Mix" (Stampin'Up) for this card. I filled the empty places between the utensils with a few donuts and a heart (Craft Sensations). I colored with felt-tip pens. The letters of COOK are punched out of black foam, those of LET'S out of black cardstock, and those of YUMMY are stamped, fussy-cut and fixed with foam pads. - The word "SOMETHING" is stamped right to the card. I glued a small piece of Washi tape at the bottom of the card for more interest. 
I think it's a nice card for a hobby cook or baker - both for him and for her.

DotMCC - Challenge #9 - Reminder

Hello everyone!

...did you already have an idea for our new challenge? 
Here is my second card as inspiration and to remind you to our 

Look for Circles Day 

It must be the fun cows from Stampin'Up! - That was my thought for this birthday card! 
They look through the holes I punched out of the embossed panel. 
I watercolored the cows with felt-tip pens, fussy-cut and put them behind the circles, letting some parts stand out. 
The MOO is punched out of brown foam. 

I had a lot of fun creating this card and wish you just as much fun with our new challenge! 
Hope you find some time to play along! - You'll find all information on the Challenge Blog....

There is ALWAYS a reason to celebrate!

Joyeux Noël

Hello everyone!
Are your Christmas cards ready yet? No...?! There are only a few weeks left - take the opportunity and join us at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown! This week we want to see these two colors:

Purple & White

I started by smooshing alcohol inks on photo paper. As I didn't have purple, I made some mixes - poppyfield, mermaid and silver. I think it looks pretty purple! 
I die-cut two firs out of this paper and a third one out of white glitter paper, of which I only kept the edge.
Then I die-cut the sentiment out of purple cardstock and white glitter paper and glued them together with a slight shift - the main ingredients of my card were done.
I embossed a panel of white paper, added a ribbon at the bottom and glued the trees (one of them with foam pads) and the sentiment. The three small stars are the cut-outs from the big star of the sentiment.

Here a closer view of the shimmering colors on the glossy paper.
If you wish, click to enlage the photo.

Have fun with the colors!
