Uniko Wreath

Hi Everyone, I won this wonderful little stamp set by Unkio and made this simple little Christmas card immediately to thank Beverly for sending me this little treasure. And now the HLS Christmas challenge is coming to an end, so I have to get this card in.... I heat embossed the wreath in white, sponged lime green ink over it and added the little pine cone and berry sprays. Added little bits of Stickles to the berries. I put an eyelet through the top and added a red ribbon. Linking up with: Happy Little Stampers - wreath

Money Book

Hi Everyone, today I don't have a card - I am showing you the playbook I made for my son for Christmas. He is a teenager and only craves money to spend on computer games.... so I had some fun, too, pulling out all sorts of supplies - Die Craft dies (Santa and Moose), STAMPlorations stamps (Funky deer), Memory Box (Santa hat), Santa Gnome (Paper Source) star panel and stars (Simon Says) and my favorite little devil (Alexandra Renke) - it turns into an angel, when you amputate the tail and horns... And lots of Washi tape, of course! It was a big success! Linking up with: Simon Says Wednesday challenge - anything goes Sweet Stampin' Challenge - Santa is coming to town (and he brings and nice gift ...)

Glittery Christmas Card

Hi Everyone, I still have some Christmas cards to share - hopefully by now they have reached their destination..... This one I made for The Heart Desires challenge - fell in love with their pretty inspiration photo. I used my new dies by Alexandra Renke , some glitter paper and silver embossing powder for the sentiment (Hero Arts). The silvery snowflakes are printed on some sheer wrapping fabric, that I bought a long time ago for crafting - it will last me a life time.... A very "girly" Christams card!

Muse Challenge #197

Hi Everyone, I am done making Christmas cards - too late for them to arrive.....whoever has not made it on to my mailing list now gets a New Years card (or a Valentine's Day card...) Thankfully the  Muse challenge  supplies us with inspiration for New Years cards - I jumped on that .... My supplies: Memory Box dies stamps by happy Little Stampers This is Jenni's inspiration - how cool is that? Love the cityscape in those big numbers, but I did not want to repeat that So I went the more conventional route. Did some background sponging and added glittery Washi tape. Merry Christmas to all of you!

Ein kleines Teufelchen - a little Devil

Hi Everyone, I had fun today, making this card - is it a Christmas card - I guess not - after all there is a little devil sitting in front of my stylized water colored tree - I guess its dreaming about Christmas... You have seen this little devil before - disguised as an angel HERE and HERE , but today I show him in its "natural" beauty ;) I added Fine Tec gold water color splatters and the star is a die cut by Lil' Inkers. The devil you can find HERE . He is just too cute! If you want to see more of Alexandra Renke's beautiful products come by on December 22nd - I'll have a big surprise for you, but I won't say more for now.....

Stamp Connection #20

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 3rd Sunday of the month and this is our ninth transatlantic get-together! This time it was Tanja's turn to pick the requirements:  "Winter + not a card" So I made an Advent calendar for my son. He likes the kind with the chocolate inside. Its made out of toilet paper rolls. The numbers are stickers I found at Michaels. Topped it with a green bow and filled it with goodies ;)   Linking up with: Simon Says Wednesday challenge - gift it Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas challenge - anything Christmas Craft for the Craig - Christmas - anything but a card Lets check out   Tanja's artwork!
