Happy Birthday DF!

Hello there! I'm back, with fresh news from the Dream Factory!

Another year has passed and we are delighted that you still love to join us! That's why we want to celebrate our Blog Birthday with you!
For our birthday you can win some little prices at each design team blog - Yeah :))

This month we have a double theme: Twilight + Halloween.
You can show us anything concerning vampires, werewolves, love or simply Halloween.

To win one of these little somethings, simply go to the Design Team blogs and leave a comment there you are automatically in "the pot"  ;)

Bettina - Conny - Simi - Andrea - Vicky ....and of course me!

.... and here is my creepy little card  (ôô)

For the background and moon I used grey and black ink and for the solar eclipse orange ink and yellow felt-tip pen. 
The bats are made with a homemade stencil and black felt-tip pen.
The trees are Katzelkraft stamps but the sentiment is handwritten. I punched a key (from Obsession Impression) twice, to use only the key head on each end of the sentiment panel.
The final image is layered with a black cardbord on a white card, whose edges have been stamped with a Stampin'Up stamp and grey ink.

Here is the price you can win on my blog! 

It's not a very big thing - some stickers and stamped images, lot of die-cuts
and of course the halloween card I made.

I hope you want to win this little something -  you just have to leave a comment
and I will draw a random person among all!

Now, it's up to you!
.....we are looking forward to your creations!

Happy stamping, knitting, sewing and....  GOOD LUCK! ;)

Embroidered sieve.

Hello everyone.
Today I'd like you to show something unusual from me ^^
....but first, I am happy to welcome my new follower June Macfarlane (sorry, no blog found)

I saw some embroidered sieves on Pinterest and I wanted to make one - just to see.
Because the thing is vaulted, you can not as easily work the back, as with an embroidery hoop, each end of embroidery thread should be immediately hidden by the following, otherwise it is not possible!   .....or you must end your work with many knots --- not very clean!
This little thing cost me a lot of nerves, but when it was finished, I was really happy with the result!

Here is a closer view (please click to enlarge)
I hope you did like this somewhat unusual thing.

Very simple card, eh!

.... BUT, if you pull the tab, colorful blooms come to light!
The blue pattern are stamped with Stazon on acetate and attached to the colorful paper, by using the tab.
This tutorial shows very well how such a card is made.

Bye for now....

Gatefold card

Hi everyone!

We are the first of the month and this means there is a new challenge at House of Cards. In this challenge we want to do some folding, but don't be afraid -- it's a very easy thing!
Do you know Gatefold cards?? ----- because this is what we would love to see  ;)

Look here is mine.....

It was very easy to do --- one folding on the left and the same on the right and I had my base card! 
I cut two panels from my homemade patterned paper (one for each gate) and I also cut a square from a white cardstock in which I cut another square to get a matching frame. Then I embossed the frame and inked it with "TEAL" from Colorbox. Next, I cut a square of corrugated paper in the same size as the square "inside the frame"--- at the same time I reduced the small white square of a few millimeters and glued it together with the corrugated paper.

To finish, I stamped the images and fixed the square with the frame to the card. ( The frame on the left gate and the square on the right gate)
The very last thing was to add the die-cut and some shimmer! 

I hope you like it .....

Now, look at this picture and create a gatefold card and/or use the colors.

Happy folding! 😉

Star Wars or/and Sissi

Hi everybody!
Yep, a new challenge at the Dream Factory we have and Star Wars this time we chose!
Here.... technologie, aliens, spaceships, movie characters etc. you can use!  :-) :-)

....and for those who do not like this masculin universe, we also have a more graceful movie for which you can use romantic, love, princesses, castles, nature and so on.
Do you know Sissi 
The empress Elisabeth of Austria - interpreted by the very young Romy Schneider in 1956! 
.....Yes, it's a very old movie, but full of romance and gorgeous images ;)

For beginning, I chose Star Wars - maybe I will do Sissi for the reminder!

Yoda is not a stamp, I found him on a coloring page on Pinterest and he immediately caught my eyes! 
I made a copie using tracing paper and once drawn to the card, 
I colored the guy with felt-tip pens and placed the handwritten sentiment.

Now I'm curious to see which movie you will choose  .....maybe both!  ;)

Happy stamping and have fun!

Peacock feather colors

....this week at Less is More.
In addition I wanted to join with 52CCT but no time to make two different cards! :(

...So, look what happens when two challenges are combined!

Left and right panels are Viva Decor stamps. 
The center panel is embossed with Woodland embossing folder from Stampin'Up, 
which I have inked and stamped with Colorbox inks before. (Teal, Peony and Moss Green)
The card base is embossed with Softly Falling embossing folder - also from SU.

I think the colors work well with winter scenes too!

See you soon!

Hello everyone.

You realize that we're already on September ! - Time goes so fast !!
Today begins a new challenge at House of Cards and in September we would like to see

a Bird and / or Colors from the palette on your card.

Here is what I made.

I used a funny bird and raindrops from Katzelkraft. 
The clouds are from Rachelle Anne Miller and the sentiment is from Stampin'Up.
...some corrugated cardboard ...a bit twine ....done!

And here is....

....our inspiration picture for the September challenge

Now catch the bird and/or use the colors

....and have fun!! ;)

Some winter scenes ....

... to give an impression of freshness by this hot weather!

On each card I combined two challenges. 
For Less is More I used stickers and for 52CCT it was watercolor. 
The sentiment is from Kesi'Art and it says: "Let it snow"

On both cards the background is colored with watercolor. 
On this one I used a tree die cut in addition to the stickers - the sentiment is already a part of them.

...... And that's two more cards for Christmas! hehe :)

Thanks for all your nice comments - I'm always so happy to read them.

Hugs, Rosi

Rouge, Noir et Kraft ....

Salut tout le monde.
Il fait beaucoup trop chaud pour travailler au chantier de construction - alors j'en ai profité, pour faire une carte.  ;)

Difficile à croire, 
mais dans seulement quatre mois .....c'est Noël!!

Voici ma première carte!

J'ai utilisé du papier cartonné "Sable du Sahara" de SU pour ma carte à la quelle j'ai ajouté un morceau embossé - du même papier. La branche de sapin est une découpe de Impression Obsession et l'estampille est de Penny Black
Pour finir, j'ai ajouté le ruban rouge et du fil métallique enroulé.

J'ai conçu cette carte pour le  52CCT ,
.....encore un challenge-blog au quel je n'ai pas pu participer depuis de longues mois!!! :(

Merci pour votre visite et pour les gentils commentaires, 
lesquels je lis toujours avec beaucoup de plaisir!

A bientôt, Rosi

Something French

Hello everybody.

It makes a while that I have not participated in a Less is More challenge and I could not miss this one!

I think these two stamps fit like a glove for the challenge.
The Eiffel Tower, the baguette and the beret!  ....just missing the cheese ;-)

 Thanks so much for stopping by,

Hugs, Rosi

Dream Factory - Madagascar

Hi everyone!
I hope you had a lovely holiday, or'll catch them soon!
Here in Bloggerland, it's already time for a new challenge and at the Dream Factory we have a funny movie for you!

For the next four weeks, we will challenge you with 


Here is what I made....

It's been a while since I have not made a 3D card. I loved to cut  those little pictures (sooo good for the nerves) - I could spend hours and hours doing that! This image dates from those days, because now I have no more time to do that.
I used a stencil for my background. Then I cut the oval and placed the image between the base card and the background. A little sentiment and it was done!

And now, let's go to the wild!   
.....we are already looking forward to your creations!

Hugs, Rosi
