Something different!


Today, I want to show you something that I already did three months ago, and that has nothing to do with cards.


A sewing box...


....filled with some goodies!
I made it for a dear friend who mainly designs cards but sometimes, she also likes sewing beautiful things.




There are two drawers and many spools of thread that are decorative at the same time!
Everything is covered with design paper except the rounded edges of both sides. They are covered with beige fabric which is more flexible than paper.




It was a real challenge for me to work again with cardboard after many years. 
My last realization with cardboard goes back to July 2014 - a urn in the shape of a motorcycle! 




I hope you like this unexpected creation!
Have a nice day and thank you for having stopped by!

Angel


Hello everyone.

This is the second week for me as Guest Designer at Challenge Up Your Life.
....it's all about Angels this time!





I have no stamp or die-cut to make an angel, so I had to innovate! 
I drew wings on white paper and cut them out. - Ok, now I have wings but much too flat and too white!
So I had the idea to cut them out of tracing paper and emboss them .... and lo and behold, I liked it much better! 
Then, everything came by itself: 
The gray background,  the dry and gold embossing, the white disc for the head and the golden string for the halo.
Once all pieced togther I stuck the gray card on a white base card. ...Love it!



I was very happy to be involved as a Guest Designer at CUYL.
A big thank you to the whole team for the warm welcome!






Stamps: Sentiment (Stampin'Up)
Dies: Circles (Spellbinder)
Embossing: Seaside and Softly Falling (Stampin'Up)
Gold embossing powder, golden string

Und hier sind meine Kreationen zum Blog Hop.
Et voici mes créations pour le Blog Hop.


Dieses lustige Trio + Schrift kommt von "Imagine That Digistamp"!
Zuerst färbte ich den Hintergrund mit hellblauem Aquarell. Dann colorierte ich diese lustigen Typen mit Filzstiften. 
Ich schnitt den Flügel und die Füße des Pinguins ab! ..... warum habe ich die Füße und den Flügel abgeschnitten?
Weil ich das Wort JOY aus einer selbstklebenden Silberfolie geschnitten, und es auf das existierende Wort geklebt habe! - Somit hat der Pinguin seinen Flügel und Beine wieder bekommen.
.... und um das Ganze etwas winterlicher zu machen, habe ich die obere Hälfte geprägt und den Boden mit funkelndem Schnee bedeckt.

Ce trio amusant + police vient de "Imagine That Digistamp"!
Tout d'abord, j'ai colorié l'arrière-plan avec de l'aquarelle bleu clair. Ensuite, j'ai colorié ces gars drôles avec des stylos feutres. J'ai découpé l'aile et les pieds du pingouin! .......pourquoi j'ai découpé les pieds et l'aile?
C'est parce-que j'ai découpé le mot JOY dans une feuille d'argent auto-adhésive que j'ai collé sur le mot existant! - Ainsi, le pingouin a retrouvé son aile et ses pieds
.... et pour faire paraître l'ensemble un peu plus hivernal, j'ai embossé la moitié supérieure et j'ai couvert le sol de neige étincelante.




Dieser lustige Hirsch kommt von "Digistamps4Joy" und er hat es sehr sehr eilig! - Weihnachten ist nicht mehr weit und er hat noch viele Pakete auf seinem Schlitten!
Auch hier habe ich mit Filzstiften coloriert und hier und da habe ich mit ein paar Glittergel Stiften nachgeholfen - leider sieht man es nicht auf dem Foto! :(
Das fertige Bild habe ich dann feinsäuberlich mit dem Skalpel ausgeschnitten!
Für den Hintergrund habe ich Yupo Papier und Alkoholfarben verwendet. Nach dem trocknen, was ja bei diesen Farben sehr schnell geht, habe ich hier und da ein paar goldene Sterne und die Schrift (SU) gestempelt und dann den Hirsch samt Schlitten darauf geklebt.
Sorry für das scharfe Blau, in Wirklichkeit ist es nicht so aggressiv!

Ce cerf amusant vient de "Digistamps4Joy" et il est très pressé! - Noël n'est pas loin et il a encore plein de paquets sur son traîneau!
Ici aussi, je colorais avec des feutres et ici et là j'ai aidé avec quelques stylos à paillettes - malheureusement ça ne se voit pas sur la photo! :(
J'ai ensuite coupé avec soin l'image finale avec le scalpel!
Pour l'arrière-plan j'ai utilisé du papier Yupo et des encres alcool. Après séchage, ce qui est très rapide avec ces l'encres, j'ai estampillé ici et là quelques étoiles dorées et l'écriture (SU) , puis j'ai collé le cerf avec le traîneau dessus.
Désolé pour le bleu vif, en réalité ce n'est pas si agressif!

Cars


Hello everyone!
Do you remind our current challenge at the Dream Factory?


CARS
🚗 🚙 🚚 🚕 🚓 🚒 🚌



Originally it is an art deco poster that I found on the net. I loved the vibrant colors of this drawing so much that I could not resist taking it! ... very simple lines and therefore quite easy to reproduce them by hand. - I colored with felt-tip pens.
The word HAPPY are die cut letters and the birthday sentiment is my computer's work. ... From time to time we must know how to delegate, right?
I glued all on black cardstock and then to the white base card. .... I used a piece of linen fabric to embosse the base card.



I also did an ATC - not often that I do it but it happens.
And that too is inspired by an art deco poster! The cars, stars and writing at the top are stamps, everything else is drawn by hand on yellow cardstock and colored with gray and brown markers.


Inspired?? - you still have two weeks to join us!! It would be great to see your creations!

See you soon 😉



Addition!!
Sorry, I completely forgot to tell you that it is our 50th challenge as well as the blog birthday. 
One lucky winner will be picked and get a Christmas surprise!

Happy crafting and good luck!

Trees .....Christmas Trees


Hello everyone.

Today, I show you two cards that are very special for me! ......Why this?
I won at Challenge Up Your Life (with this card) and I have the honor to support the CUYL team this and next week
....how lucky I am!!

Trees
are the challenge for this week!


My stock of Christmas cards is far from being at the top level, so I chose fir trees! Sometimes covered with snow, as on this card, and sometimes not .... but always in Christmas mood.
To make these trees, I simply used white and green triangles of different sizes.
I added some shine on the white parts with Wink of Stella glitter pen and scraped the green parts with a cutter to give texture. I glued the different triangles together to form the trees.
I sponged a white piece of paper with Tempting Turquoise (Stampin'Up), spritzed some water and let it dry.
Before glueing the trees I also added ultra-fine sheer shimmery spray (Tzukineko).
Finally, I stuck the finished panel on a white base card.


A little better view from the shimmer - it's so hard to photograph!




For this card I used several stamps (Stampin'Up, Kesi'Art, Docrafts)  to create a kind of collage.
The left border is stamped with stars.
I added two punched borders (Stampin'Up), a beige and a golden and wrapped arround with a linen string, to which I added two tiny tags. I sponged the edges with Toffee (Versafine) and glued the layer to the white base card. That's it!


Thanks for your visit and happy crafting!






Stamps: Firs, Stars, Splashes, Tiny fir, Sentiments, (Stampin'Up); Hiver (Kesi'Arts); Postcard stamp (Docrafts)
Inks: Tempting Turquoise, (Stampin'Up); Smokey Gray and Toffee (Versafine)
Punches: Stampin'Up

Go on holiday!


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


CARS
..... you guessed, it's about cars!  😉



Ah, this time I made it very simple! I stamped the images (all from Scrap Plaisir) and watercolored them using felt-tip pens. 
To do this, I scribble with felt-tip pens on an old CD and then I use it like watercolor.
I stamped the two road signs and stuck them on a thin strip of gray paper. 




And voilà a very old car! - be it the model of the car ot the card making! LOL
Truly, I made this card in 2014 and I never showed it - it was time, right!!!


You have plenty of cars among your stamps or coloring pages and you want to play with us? - We can not wait to see your works!

See you soon 😉






Stamps: First card (Scrap Plaisir), second card (Tim Holtz)
Inks: Fist card: Onyx Black (Versafine), felt-tip pens, Second card: Spiced Marmalade and Tumbled Glass (Distress), Onyx Black (Versafine)

Ho Ho Ho


Hello everyone!

I was so excited about Cornelia's card that I could not resist making one too!
and ......we never have enough Christmas cards - right!?



You can see that I was very strongly inspired by Cornelia's card, except that I added trees in the background and snow on the ground. That is all.
To hide Santa behind the tree, I cut at both sides of the trunk and stuck the guy in it. I did the same for the owl! The firs are stuck behind the snow hill. I colored with felt-tip pens.


Oh yes, I almost forgot to tell you that it's happening at Muse Christmas Visions 😉


See you soon!





Stamps: Santa (Artemio); Firs and sentiment (Scrap Plaisir); Owl (was a gift in a craft magazine)
Inks: Onyx Black (Versafine); Soft Sky (Stampin'Up;
Embossing: Woodland (Stampin'Up)

Fa la la la la


Hello everyone!
Time for a new challenge at House of Cards!
This month we want to see Holiday and/or Colors. (see the inspiration photo below)




This time I choose Stampin'Up's "Merry Mice". 
To do the background, I used my new embossing folder (inked with "Saharah Sand" (Stampin'Up). -  just Love it!! 😍😍
I also added a few glittery snow hills to make a pretty wintry scene!  
As usual I took felt-tip pens to color my images in watercolor technique. 
Once colored, I fussy cut the mice and pushed them into the snow hills. 😊
It just remained to stamp the sentiment and that was it!




Holiday and/or Colors




Join in and increase your Christmas cards stock on time 😉

Ooh ooh ah! 🙊


Hello everyone!
Just a quick reminder for our current challenge at the Dream Factory. - This month's movie is

Night at the Museum
La nuit au musée -- Nachts im Museum

.... Monkeys, mummies (but no Halloween please), horses, cowboys, Egypt, dinosaurs, etc.




Neither monkey nor dinosaur, Indian or cowboy can be found in my stamp sets - so I had to fish again an image (coloring picture) from the Net! Hahaha

Otherwise, the card was super easy to do. After coloring the monkey I slightly sponged the sheet with blue ink, sewed the faux stitches to the edges with a quilter wheel and stamped the monkey scream. Finally I stuck the sheet on a white base card.



You still have two weeks to take part in this challenge and I hope that I could inspire you!

Thanks for stopping by!

Merry Christmas everywhere!


Hello everyone!

Couldn't resist to try my new dies ...



.... here is what came out!


I got them last week but....  
the weather was so sunny and warm, our grandchildren were here .... it would have been a pity to waste this wonderful time for crafting!
Today it is gray and wet outside - so no regrets to stay at home and make the Cuttlebug work! 

I created this little village by doing two layers with two different rows of houses. I just removed the parts of the windows and stuck some colored paper behind them. I distanced the two rows with self-adhesive foam. 
I sponged the base card with blue ink and stuck the little village between the the card and the panel with the oval that I had previously embossed. To finish I added some die cut stars and a bit snow (white gel pen)
The edges of the card are glued flat - only the center of the card is bulging!


Thanks for your visit!
