Meljen and Dream Valley- Text and Animals

Here is a card I have done for 2 challenges. First Meljens design. The challenge this week is: Words for a friend. So add as much text as you can! My background is from a newspaper, and I chosed the cute bee from Meljen and used my Stamping up stamp BEE MY HONEY with it.
 -Lets go yellow-lets go summer! (even if there are temperatures like in siberia right now here...brrr...)

Over at Dream Valley challenges the actual challenge is: Animals, fits in perfectly! I loooooove coloring animals! What amazing challenge combo! They have Robyn's fetish digital stamp as sponsor this time, seems to be a cute little company <3


stay crafty!!!

Christmas challenge 2

So my second entry for the Winter Wonderland challenge blog is this card. I used the Marianne Design  Christmas tree-die to make a stamp with foam out of it. And it works just perfect as you can see! I would like to craft so much more cards with Christmas trees, I love them!


Christmas challenge

Over at the Winter Wonderland challenge blog they have a wonderful challenge: Oh Christmas tree.
I was sure that I will take part, so I have two entries for this  challenge. This is my first one. 

Embossed the cardstock, cut out some triangles, used fitting vinylribbon, and used the fluffy pen to have some snowy effect :) 


Designed to color

For the Designed to Color challenge blog I designed this card. They have a color palette to follow this time:

So here is my entry:

The cupcake stamp is from Kanban, I used a card with a gradient and the small cupcake stamps I bought in a local store here, 9 small stamps for just 1,50. That was a deal :-D

Stay creative!

Shape it up!

Hi there! 
Today I want to show you a card that I normally wanted to do already yesterday. But Greg and me we went on our first hike so I was quite exhausted and sleepy and the bed was too welcoming for me. :)

So here it is, the theme is "shape it up" and the challenge is over at Divas By Design. I love the theme of travelling, so I thought about doing a case with many embellishments. I chosed the digi from precious moments, colored it with copics. The paper I used is from Graphic 45's 12x12 paper pad "transatlantique collection". Most of the flowers are handmade. 
Hope you enjoy it!

Here some shots from the city Kamp Lintfort we we went to hike. Beautiful, isn't it?

Have a great start of the week!

Challenge combo

Hi there!
Today I want to show you a card that I made fitting to three challenges:

The back of the card is a little bit longer and has a black inlay. Like this theres the effekt of the double layer. I used 4 layers in all, the flower from sizzix looks so adorable in the circle. The flowers in the upper left corner I made by myself, I'm always happy if they fit in a project. :D

Some details:

Meljen challenge

Hi  there!
Meljen's design has still the mothers day challenge running, and since I bought this cute digistamp from her store a few days ago I thought that a maritime mothers day card would fit perfectly to my new stamp.

I used seashells to create kind of a beach, do you like it? :) Take a look at the ribbon that looks a little bit like seaweed, I bought it in a store and they sold ribbons for ten cents a pack! Unbelievable!

Mad... More mad... insane! :)

Hey there!
I simply love to play with layers and color. And what fits best for a "last" monthly challenge on Altered Alice than a card as most creative as it can be?

So I marbled the background with oilcolor, alcohol and glue, scrapped a few papers that fit in the colorsheme and colored the stamps from the octopode factory with copics.

The flowers are handmade, except the mulberry ones. I love the quote of the ceshire cat so much that I used it for both of my entries. The colors are so vibrant!!! Take a look at the small trees that I formed with paper :)

Some details: Here a close up from the trees, I taped the branches :D


Looooove it! Look at the grin :)

be creative!!!!


We are all mad here reading sign!

Bad news of tonight: one if my favorite challenge pages, the Altered alice, will stop their monthly challenges! WTH? They are so much inspirational! Really a pity. I always loved to see the monthly crazyness! So to "celebrate" the last challenge I have two entries. This is the first one. A reading sign with the mad hatter.
I love the stamps from the Octopode Factory. Yikes they are so amazing and I absoluteely love coloring them. I dont use copic paper for printing them, I directly print on 320g matt photo paper. Its just so great to color on!

The flower I did by myself, exactly like the tutorial that I showed earlier here. 
The small clock embellishement is from G45, the letters from magazines. I so love this reading sign!!!


Quaaaaaak!!! Everybody art challenge.

For the challenge on Everybody art Challenge is this card. Theme this week: Violett. The cute little frog is from Sliekje Stamp blog- check it, she  is a wonderful designer and gives away her digis FOR FREE! Can you believe this?
The background the frog is sitting on I created with fluid metall colors, they are so shiny and brilliant, I just love them! 
The frog is colored with copics and is highlighted with fluid metall as well.

Christmas penguin Challenge

Hey there! I'm quite crafty these days, so I'm back with another card for the Winter Wonderland challenge where the theme this time is PPPPPPICK UP A PENGUIN. A great opportunity to pick up my old diggies from Meljen!!! Her digis are just so unbelievable cute and she has her own style. And to color them with copics is just so easy! I chosed a french text this time because I have the feeling that I never used my french STAMPING UP!- text set. ....dommage :D I hope you enjoy it!!!

Clean and Simple/ inspired by

Hey there!!!
Here is a card that I actually made for two challenges. The first is over at Simon says stamp and show where the theme is; INSPIRED BY. I made this card based on a card that I saw over at CAS-ual friday, made by AJ. Its so lovely and simple! The second challenge I take part with this card is over at Totally papercrafts where this weeks topic is CLEAN AND SIMPLE. The colors just fit so perfect! I even thought about to paint a room with these colors, they are calm and clean!

Some details:


Just a quick note...

...that Janiel over at Scrappy Jan Designs has a cute Candy going on!

Toilet roll owl :)

Some cute idea inbetween- Its been a few times now that I have seen pictures of toilet roll owls on facebook now. Today I had enough from all the cute pictures and so I felt it was my turn now with the cuties. Said and done, one toilet roll and a bigger roll from kitchen sheets cut in two pieces are the base of it. Just cut away half a round fron and back, glue paper that you want on the owl (I colored it inside too with acryl color), cut eyes and wings and the beak and ET VOILA- fast and easy even for kids. And they just look so lovely! If you glue them on something heavier you even can use them as a pencil box :)

Cute hmm?

Metallic paint 1.0

Since I work in the craftstore I always discover new stuff that I would like to try...and mostly to have :D :D So we had those wonderful metallic color in a special offer and I bought some to try them because they just looked so shimmering and lovely. In a penny store I bought this mask (I always wanted to do a mask but never did) and drew a design on. And look how amazing it turned out! Wonderful and outstunning. I will put peacock feathers on it, it fits just perfect!

From the other side: worked with pearl pens too
