Hello and I hope you're all having a great afternoon. Kind a stressful day today, but I got a lot of things done already! Before I now leave for a walk with the doggies I like to show you my card I made yesterday. Hooray another one decorated inside and out and I even made a matching envelope. I stamped matching images on the front and back and also lined the envelope. I received my pre-ordered Magnolia Animal & Pet Collection stamps already on Saturday from Summer , yay! I colored the image on sunday and assembled the card yesterday. But see for yourself , hope you like my card with little Edwin and his lizard friend.

With Love!

Hello and Happy Friday everyone! Today I was able to make a card with another cute Lockhart stamp. I really like these cute little stamps! I kept my card pretty simple, just a little bit of layering and no DP at all, just Bazzill CS and glossy CS. Instead of the DP I used my Cuttlebug embossing folders Swiss Dots, Spots and Dots and Border Set with love to add some texture. Added some bling with Basic Greys "Bling it" and a ribbon. I colored my imgae using Copics 0 - B000 - B00 - C0 - G17 - Y13 - YR000 - YR00. That was really a quick card and I like the clean look. Hope you like it as well! Hallo und einen schoenen Freitag Euch allen. Heute habe ich es geschafft noch eine Karte mit den suessen Lockhart Stempeln zu machen. Diese suessen kleinen Stempel mag ich besonders. Meine Karte habe ich ziemlich einfach gehalten, etwas layering und noch nicht mal DP. Habe nur Bazill CS und hochglanz CS verwendet. Um dem ganzen etwas Struktur zu verleihen habe ich mit meiner Cuttleb

Mirror Image Card

Happy Hump Day everyone! Last week when I was browsing the internet I found a great tutorial on how to make a mirror image card. I really liked the idea and the card. I thought I would give it a try and this was my first attempt but definitely not my last. It is really fun and a fast technique as well! The tutorial and idea is from Dawn's Stamping Studio and because I really liked the card she made I cased it. I just used a different stamp (mine is from Rubber Stampede) and colored the image in with my distress inks instead of Stampin Up ink pads. I also added the ribbon and some half pearls. Do you like it? Einen wunderschoenen Mittwoch Euch allen! Letzte Woche habe ich beim surfen durchs web ei tolles Tutorial gefunden, wie man eine Spiegelbild Karte macht. Ich fand die Idee toll und dachte das versuche ich auch mal. Und das hier war mein erster, aber sicher nicht letzter Versuch. Es macht viel Spass und geht auch noch recht schnell. Das Tutorial und die Idee ist von Dawn's

Hello and Happy Monday again! I'm feeling like I'm melting away. It is so hot down here at the moment... you don't even want to go outside between noon and 5 o'clock if you don't have to... Even my dogs are tired from the heat and sleeping most of the afternoon... And if we are outside we are in the pool, the only bearable way For my card today I used one of my friend Anki's new stamps form her newly released Sweetheart Series 2, available at SCACD . I fell in love instantly with this super cute bunny named Fluffy. I just had to have I made this card for this weeks Papertake Weekly Challenge , hope I'm not too late yet.
