Adorable Critters

Today I want to share two cards with you that I made using the adorable critters from the Paper Smooches Set „Zoo Crew “.  One card is made using the cute hippo and the punny sentiment “hippo hurray”.  I gave that card to a dear friend of mine as a birthday card.

I liked the simple yet colourful and summer like design of the card so much that I decided to make another one. For the second card I chose the adorable giraffe and paired it with the sentiment “I look up to you”.

Springtime Florals

Every year I patiently endure the grey, the cold and the depressing dullness of winter but when spring finally arrives I completely chance as a person. I am less irritated by people, I spend more time outside and I start to enjoy the beauty of nature again. And in my opinion nature best expresses its beauty through flowers. All those stunning, fresh and vibrant colours and the amazing smells are just breath-taking. And there is such a huge variety of flowers and I love them all.

Coloured pencils & gamsol

Today I want to show you 3 cards I made recently using the lovely Gorjuss-stamps, coloured pencils and gamsol. I have to admit that I am a big fan of copics but once in a while I like to try something new.

I heard about gamsol some time ago, I watched several YouTube videos and found the results most stunning. And of course I have very fond childhood memories of coloured pencils. So I decided to get myself a set of gamsol and paper stomps and start the experiment.

Gamsol is a brand name for a blending medium for coloured pencils, an odourless mineral spirit. Basically it is a paint thinner which breaks down the wax in the coloured pencil allowing for beautiful blending.

For my first card I used a very pretty Gorjuss-stamp on white cardstock.

I love autumn

Herbst 1

After spring autumn is my second favourite season!

And it was my favourite one when I was a child. I remember taking long walks through the forest collecting chestnuts and beautifully coloured leaves. I remember the fresh and clear air and jumping into huge piles of leaves. And at home we would drink hot tea and create little stick-figures with chestnuts and toothpicks. The air outside wasn’t too hot anymore but not cold either. It was perfect for taking walks and collecting mushrooms. Weiterlesen

Finally Spring!

I am so happy it’s finally spring. The temperatures are bearable and the sunlight just makes me happy! What about you? Don’t you just love when everything starts to bloom and grow? I know I love it. So I made a set of cards with flowers to celebrate my favorite season of the year!

I stamped a flower on vellum with versamark, embossed it in white and colored the flowers with my copics from behind. The results were so cute, that I decided to make a whole bunch of cards with this technique.  Also, you can never have too many “thanks” and birthday cards!

Winterliches und Weihnachtliches

Weihnachten ist zwar schon vorbei und wir haben sogar schon 2014, aber der Winter hat dieses Mal sehr spät Einzug gehalten. Persönlich bin ich ja kein Fan von Eiseskälte und Schneematch auf den Straßen, aber da müssen wir wohl durch. Auch die Zeit wo wir nicht bei absoluter Dunkelheit aus dem Bett müssen, wird wohl noch auf sich warten lassen.

Jedenfalls möchte ich hier ein paar winterliche und weihnachtliche Karten dieser Saison mit euch teilen. Für all diejenigen, die Winter und Schnee gern haben – viel Spaß. Und an alle anderen: Es kann sich nur noch um Monate handeln…….
