Pink mood!

Hello everyone!
Don't know why, but today I wanted to use pink for my card! too have noticed that this color comes up very often lately, eh?

First I stamped paisley pattern (Fiskars) with Versamark all over a sheet of white paper and heat embossed it clear! Then I wet the sheet, colored it with watercolor from dark to clear and let it dry. 
During this time I cut the Carpe Diem 4 times and glued them one on top of the other, so that it made a very thick cut. 
Finally I embossed the "Joyeux anniversaire" (happy birthday) in white on a small black rectangle and glued everything together.

I play with:
Just Us Girls - All over stamping

Fantastic Shoe

Hello everyone!
Today starts a new challenge at the Dream Factory. You all know Cinderella? - I hope so, because this month is about her story:

Three wishes for Cinderella.
Trois noisettes pour Cendrillon
Drei Haselnüsse für Aschenbrödel

Here is my card to the story.

I was inspired by Cinderella's shoe and when I saw the gorgeous illustrations by Colleene Kennedy, I was immediately fascinated by her funny shoes! -- She is such a fabulous and talented artist!!
... NO printing!! I used tracing paper and carbon paper, to get the subject on my card. 
I designed the saying with the computer. Actually, it was in gray and black but my printer does totally crazy things again and printed all the gray in pink?!? !!! Great!! 
At first I wanted to redo the pink words with a gray felt-tip pen but in the end I liked it much better as it was! And who knows what I would have destroyed?

... and now you also know why I'm not a big fan of printing and Digi Stamps, haha
...or perhaps it's time to I buy a new printer !!

There are many possibilities to make something! - it's up to you now!

See you soon at the Dream Factory ;)

X-mas mice

Hello everybody.

Phew, we had such gloomy weather the last days!! - What better than a good cup of hot tea and
.....make a Christmas card with the sketch at Christmas Card Throwdown!

I'm lucky, today the sun came back and I could take the pictures under better light.

 I added some snow under the mice feet and a gleaming pink star to the fir. To do this, I smeared a bit glossy on the star and the edge of the panel and sprinkled it with ultra fine glitter. White  for the snow and pink for the star!
All stamps are Stampin Up and for coloring I used felt-tip pens.

Here a closer view to the "glittering stuff" 

Happy weekend

Inky Fingers Today !

Hi everyone!
Today I play along with Less is More. They has a color and OMBRE/shadow challenge this week.

First, I tore a piece of watercolor paper to a rectangle and sprinkled it with water. Then I added a few drops of Disstress ink "Vintage photo" on it, sprinkled again with water, turned it a bit back and forth and put it aside for drying.
While the paper was drying, I took a bigger piece of paper and wet it with a thick brush and water. 
Then I used the same ink, but this time with a brush and with only a tiny droplet of color! - I wanted the background as bright as possible!
Next I stamped a small diamond pattern ( by ALADIN ) on the torn paper and stuck it to the bigger one. 
To finish I stamped the word ART ( by ALADIN ) in a very soft color just under the image and glued the whole panel to the white card base!

I do not often use liquid ink but one thing is for sure, 
I loved to see how it merged in the wet paper ..... and I like the result!

Try it yourself and enjoy ;)

Hi everyone.
Not very inspired this weekend, ...but I must confess that I was a bit lazy too!

A row of houses which one of them is cut out of sparkling foam.
The sentiment is stamped on a small stripe of paper.

The only difference between the card above and this one, is a smaller and darker house and no stripe for the sentiment.

That's all for today!
See you soon - ... with, I hope, a little more inspiration!

Bonne Année

Hello everyone!
Yes, another card for the New Year! In France it is customary to send the wishes for the New Year instead of Christmas. So in the coming days, you will still see two or three cards of this kind - but promised, after those it's finish!!

In fact, the background of this card was intended for that of yesterday, but I have colored it with ink and it has not really dried well -- the embossing powder hooked on the whole area!  I nevertheless embossed it and put it aside!
Again and again I wondered what I could do with this failed piece of paper and during the day I had an idea! - That's what came out of it!

I added two feathers, a wreath and a few glittering things and the card was ready - nothing is lost and I love it!

Thanks for reading!

Happy New Year

Hello everyone!
I don't know if I'll be able to take a bit more of challenges this year and make a Christmas card a week, in any case these are two of my goals for 2017.

Let's start with this!

Silver embossed spots, Versamark stamped snowflakes and a silver thread on a peach colored cardstock. 
The sentiment is glued with foam pads.

HOC - Add a Building and/or Colors

Hi everyone!
Have you celebrated the New Year? .....with confetti and firecrackers? .... no hangover?
Ok, so let's move on to serious things, because the New Year starts right away with a challenge at House of Cards!

I was inspired by the image and colors

... and that's what came out!

After watercoloring my background with a little gray, I stamped the firs and then I added two birch trees and a tiny red house. At last I stamped the sentiment and added a few enamel dots and some pearl pen accents.

Add a Building and/or Colors

Happy New Year to all of you!

Die letzte Karte aus 2016

....oder wie man das Jahr in Rosa beendet!! haha

La dernière carte en 2016
.... ou comment terminer l'année en rose!! haha

Hallo allerseits! ...heute sogar in deutsch und französisch bitteschön!
Salut tout le monde! ...aujourd'hui même en allemand et en français s'il vous plaît!

Eine etwas unrealistische Szene, aber warum nicht! - Manchmal darf man auch Rosa Schneeflocken sehen und erst recht zum Jahresende!

Une scène quelque peu irréaliste, mais pourquoi pas! - Parfois on peut aussi voir des flocons de neige roses et ce certainement à la fin de l'année!

Ich wünsche euch allen eine großartige Sylvester Nacht. 
Lasst die Korken knallen und habt irrsinnigen Spaß!

Je vous souhaite à tous une excellente nuit de la St. Sylvestre. 
Faites sauter les bouchons et amusez-vous follement!!
