Twofer Card Challenge #11

 Hi Everyone,

its Twofer Time.
The theme is WREATH.

The theme is WREATH.

I decided on a Winnie&Walter set, which has that pretty wreath in it and all the other stamps you see on my Christmas card. I stamped on designer paper (Alexandra Renke) and heat embossed in gold and white. Added white heat embossed splatters - you just spritz water and add the embossing powder. Heat it an you are set.

for me second card I chose those cute Cats on Appletrees stamps. The sentiment is from STAMPlorations. I splattered and added a strip of striped paper.

Happy Twofing!

CAS Mix Up Reminder

Hi Everyone,

I have been asked to be guest designer at the CAS Mix-Up challenge.
You may have seen my first card HERE.

And now you'll see my reminder card for this fabulous challenge.
The DT supplies ample information about the topic and one can learn so much! 
This month topic is all about embossing folders. If you are like me, you have a huge supply of them - but rarely used.... I am so glad I had an excuse to put at least one of them in action!

For this card I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder and smeared it with Creative Expressions metallic gliding polish. I die cut the flower using a Penny black die and gold shimmer paper. The little sentiment is an ancient one from Papertrey. I also added a few gold gems.

So glad I found an excuse for my embossing folder. I should use them more frequently. If you feel the same way - just play along!

Here is a compilation of all the Embossing Folder Tutorials:

25 Days of ChristmasTags at Muse Christmas Visions

Hi Everyone,

Muse Christmas Visions is tagging along - haha, pun intended with Tracey McNeely's wonderful 25 Days of Christmas Tags.
Image may contain: text that says '25 Days of Christmas Tags inmyereativeopinion.blogspot.ca'
Our theme for the current MCV challenge is Botanical. I am sure that will come easy to most of you!

I am not a big fan of tags, so this is challenging for me....
It is what it is, right? At least I got the theme right.
I used card stock I had previously used as spray guard and die cut my botanical elements (Papertrey). Added them onto a Kraft tag and splattered white paint onto it.
No automatic alt text available.

I also added clear Nuvo drops onto the berries, to add some shine.

I hope you will find time to play along with us at MCV. Link up your tag as well as link to Tracy's' blog.
There is a lot of prizes up for grabs thanks to all those wonderful sponsors, see below:

Katzelkraft - Break the Wall

Hi Everyone,

as you all know, Wednesday is Katzelkraft day on my blog. 

I am again using the new stamps - they are just too much fun!!! ......This one is from the Sherlock Holmes set

I first stamped the prisoner and made a mask for him. Stamped the torn paper and made masks for it. Sponged the inside of the paper hole with distress inks. Masked the torn paper edges and used a MFT stencil for the wall. Colored the prisoner with Inktense and stamped the sentiment. Its a one layer card - my favorite thing to do...

If you feel the urge to buy any Katzelkraft products, you can also order them in the US from those companies: Lost Coast DesignsTopflight Stamps or Frantic Stamper 

Happy Stamping!

So Suzy & Crackerbox Stamps - Harry Christmas

Hi Everyone,

I have been playing with the new So Suzy & Crackerbox Stamps release.
Using some of those Harry Potter stamps and turned them into a Christmas card......
I must admit, I saw something similar on Pinterest and "recreated" it

My Crackerbox and So Suzy Stamp supplies:

I first gessoed a page from a dictionary, let it dry and ironed it, as the Gesso wrinkled the paper.

Before I started stamping, I masked of the "ME" from the word Merry on the stamp with a piece of Scotch tape (after I had inked it up)

I drew in the Ha - to turn the Merry into Harry.
Stamped and tore the paper to fit an A2 card base.

Attached the dictionary page to a piece of designer paper (Alexandra Renke)
Added some gold string and a little gold brad.

I had also colored the letter with Finetec Mica colors and added a few white gel pen accents to the glasses and the sentiment.

Stamp Connection #43

Hi Everyone,

Connected through our love for card making, blogging and being from Germany we (Tanja from Little Art Cottage and I) decided to create a monthly project within predefined requirements. We are going to show you the result every 2nd Sunday of the month and this is our ninth transatlantic get-together!

This time it was my turn to pick the requirements:

Fields and Meadows

I used an ancient Stampin up stamp for the background. Did a little sponging. Added the little animals - they are from Cats on Appletrees, a German company. Made the eyes with liquid enamel and cut the apple out of red paper and heat embossed it in clear. The sentiment is from My Favorite Things.

Lets check out  Tanja's artwork!

Happy Stamping!

Watermelon Moon

Hi Everyone,

when I saw the current Male Room challenge I knew immediately I had to play along. Do you fell the same about certain themes? They just speak to you. It took me quite a while to find a "suitable" piece of art, that I knew would work for me. I had actually in the end a whole list available, but I settled for Charlie Harper. I am a huge fan of him.

I just copied his artwork....It is called Watermelon Moon

You can see, he is the better artist....but I am still pleased with it.
I used the cute racoon from a STAMPlorations set called Woodland Friends. I die cut the watermelon with circle dies and the seeds I made with an ancient Martha Stewart punch.

As you can see, I couldn't resist a pun - follow your dreams - those racoons seem to be dreaming of watermelon, ha!

Cut it out and mounted with with foam tape onto maroon wood grain card stock (Alexandra Renke). the sentiment I heat embossed with WOW gold embossing powder.
