72h Mouse Challenge - Gerda Steiner Designs / and happy birthday Create a Smile

Hello all,

as promised I'm back with a few new creations. First of all, a card for the 72h Mouse Challenge from Gerda Steiner Designs.

And this is what I came up with...

I have printed this digital stamp onto Neenah Solar white paper and colored the little one with Delta Markers. The stamp which says "Happy Birthday" in german and the enamel dots are from the new Create a smile collection. I really love this new stamp set and it is great together with Gerdas sweet stamp :-)


I finished him of with a few whiskers, a white dot from my gel pen on his nose and a bit of glossy accent for the balloon.

Have a nice sunday!

I'm too late...

Hello all,

unfortunately I'm too late for Gerda Steiners 6 week challenge, but I will show you the cards anyway!

It is defenitely too hot here in Switzerland - so I didn't create that much in the last view weeks...

But hopefully I will be back with new creations as soon as possible!

So and here are my cards:

And here the other one...

Wish you a good day!

72h Weekend Challenge

Dear all,

Gerda has invited for a 72h weekend challenge with a lovely little Birthday-phant...

And here is my idea for this sweet little one...

I created a birthday card on a kind of turquoise background which I found in a card pack from Tchibo. I printed a few elephants on Neenah Solar White paper and colored them with Delta Marker.
Afterwards I mounted the white piece and the sentiment on some fun foam, to get a bit of dimension.

And this is the inside...

Sorry for the bad photo quality, but my boyfriend went on a motorcycle trip over the weekend and has taken the camera with him :-)

Wish you all a great weekend


Stempel: Digi Stamp from Gerda Steiner Designs, sentiments from SSS "Big Birthday Wishes"
Farben: Delta Marker
Papier: cardbase and envelope from a Tchibo package, Neenah Solar White paper

Gerda Steiner Designs - "Reading-monster" bookmarks

Dear all,

today I will show you more about my little "Lese-Monster" / "Reading-monsters" which I made a few weeks ago. I have used these adorable monsters from Gerda Steiner Designs, but you can use any motiv you like to put on the bookmarks.
This is also a great way to get rid of all the left over paper...

I have printed the stamps onto neenah paper and colored them with Delta Marker and added a few enamel dots finish them.

I have fuzzy cut them, but if you have a Silhouette Cameo, you can also use the mashine to cut them out can also use some googly eyes for them :-)

And here are they all together :-)

Have a nice whitsun weekend!

CAS for the Stinkin' Cute May challenge from Gerda Steiner Designs

Hallo zusammen,

kennt ihr das auch, manchmal wenn man einen Stempel sieht, will einem so gar nichts dazu einfallen... und ein anderes Mal, sieht man den Stempel und hat sofort ein Bild im Kopf und im Idealfall auch gleich einen passenden Spruch zur Hand...
Tja und das ist mir mit dem kleinen Kerl von der Mai challenge von Gerda Steiner Designs passiert. Ich wusste genau, dieser Spruch muss es sein... diesen Monat mal auf Deutsch :-)
did you know that - sometimes when you see a stamp, you don't really get any kind of inspiration. And on an other day, you have already pictures and in the best case a sentiment already in your mind, when seeing a new stamp - and this was happening to me with this cute littly skunk from Gerda Steiner Designs for the may challenge - this month with a german sentiment which means "stinkin' cute"

Und hier nun das kleine Stinktier, dass ich mit Caran d'Ache Classiccolor wasservermalbaren Farbstiften koloriert habe.
Der Hintergrund ist mit der Peacock feather Distress Ink von Tim Holtz entstanden und der Spruch stammt aus dem "Frühlingsgefühle" Set von Stampin' UP - na wenn das nicht passt :-)
I colored him with Caran d'Ache water-soluble pencils and created the background with peacock feather distress ink from Tim Holtz. The sentiment is from the "bloomin marvelous" set from Stampin' UP. 

Ich wünsche Euch eine wundervolle Woche und hoffentlich bald wieder etwas mehr Sonne - zumindest hier in der Schweiz... 
Wish you all a wonderfull week and hopefully a bit more sunshine here in switzerland!

Trying to be a part of the team...

Dear all,

I'm applying for the Design Team Call from Gerda...

So today I'm showing you a birthday card which I created with the stamps from the great and sweet "Heavy Friends" - Clearstamp Set by Gerda Steiner Designs. 

For the background I used my new "Dot fade" stencil by Tim Holtz with the distress inks faded jeans, stormy sky and broken china. I love this stencil!!! The whale is colored with Delta markers and for the side I used the stencil with versamark ink and clear embossing powder.

Have a nice week,

Coffee Girl - April's Challenge by Gerda Steiner Designs

Dear all,

it's me again. After quite a long time - sorry for that!

I just had so much to do for the "Koffermarkt". Which actually went quite well!
But I did not forget my input for the April's challenge from Gerda Steiner Designs. This month we have the "little coffee girl"... 

I created a card with left overs from one of the monthly card kits from Simon Says Stamp. I used the Simon Says Stamp COFFEE CUP Craft die for the shaker part and a sentiment from the "What's brewing" stamp set. The sequins in the shaker were also part of the monthly kit.

Wish you all a sunny sunday!

Gerda Steiner Designs - March challenge entry

Hello all,

this is my 2nd blog entry for today...
This will be my entry for the March challenge from Gerda Steiner Designs...

Next time I will not give the little one some whiskers... But I would not make the card over...

The background is made after Jennifer McGuires video about Ink Layering. But I used a stamp instead of a stencil.
I printed the Digi stamp on watercolor paper and colored the scene with my Delta Markers, cut it out and put it with fun foam on a piece of white paper.
I added the "Hello Spring" sentiment from Gerdas Hello Spring stamp set and a few sequins to finish the card.

I will also enter this card to the Addicted to CAS challenge #59 - GREEN - although this card is not really clean and simple...

Have a nice evening,

Hallo zuammen,

Meine Mutter brauchte eine Karte für eine Kollegin die demnächst heiratet.

Addicted to CAS challenge #58 - Distress

Today it will be just a small blog entry...

I have created a birthday card for one of my Mums friends. He will turn 60 this year and he is a great fan of Sydney!!!
So here is the card I created ...

I have used Tim Holtz distress Inks for the clouds in the background and also for the water. I added a few droplets of water afterwards, to get this kind of water-structure look - I like it!!!

The opera and the bridge are a Silhouette file. 
The sentiment on the front and on the inside, is heat embossed with Ranger Liquid Platinum powder - it looks great together with the cardbase which is soft suede cardstock from Stampin' UP.



Due to the fact that I used distress ink, I will enter this card to the Addicted to CAS challenge #58 - Distress

Wish you all a nice evening
