If you love horses...

....this challenge is for you!

Hello everyone!
We have a new challenge at the Dream Factory! - This month's movie is

The Horse Whisperer
Der Pferdeflüsterer
L'Homme qui murmurait à l'oreille des chevaux

Some keywords: Horses, Love, Country Life, Friendship.

I love horses but as strange as it may seem, I have no stamp for this topic! 
....hope you are better off than me! 😉
This time, I did not have the patience, nor the time to draw myself and I printed this image that I found on Pinterest.
(See the link at the bottom of this page) 
As usual, my printer did not want to print correctly - I had a pink horse ha ha ha 
...and I had to retrace the image by hand!
I purposely left the horse without color and 
I just added green paper and dry-embossed white paper to give some contrast and texture.

Thanks for stopping by
See ya...

A spiky thing!

Hello everyone!
Today I show you cactus number two - sorry, it took me a little longer than expected.
Finally here he is, the big brother of this one!

This time I worked with felt, it's really a very nice and sweet material!
First I drew a cactus on a sheet to have a pattern. I cut it and then cut in half to get two quarters of cactus pattern. I cut each quarter twice out of felt and sewed them together, leaving the seam exposed. I stuffed the cactus starting with the "arms" and ending with the trunk. Then I cut some flowers that I fixed with round-headed pins. For the needles, I used simple pins.

The "potting soil" for the cactus is also made from felt. 
For this, I cut two rings out of brown felt that I left open on one side, so that I could put it around the cactus once sewn and stuffed. The pot is made with cardstock and embellished with washi tape.
I really enjoyed doing it! ... it changes a bit of what I usually do!

I hope you like it
 ....and promised, I will not bother you with other spiky things! 😂

Mixed Medias

.... and Happy New Year to you all!

I hope you had a great New Year's Eve, because as soon as the New Year begins we already have a first challenge for you at House of Cards!

Mixed Medias and/or Stunning colors
this is what we want on your cards this month!
(See our inspiration photo at the bottom)

The year begins with glitter! - My unicorn has some in the mane but impossible to see it on the picture - too bad!
This month it's Mixed Media so I used several things ....and my new Scrap Plaisir stamps!
The rainbow is watercolor, the mane is colored with colored pencils and then Wink of Stella. I also added some silver stars and splashed some black ink on the card ....and after sticking the sentiment ( Life is better with glitter!) and the unicorn I added three more sequins!

A Christmas Wish

Hello everybody!
Two more days and the year bows! You are probably in the preparation for the new year and I wish you right now a wonderful New Year's Eve!
However, I would like to remind you that you still have two weeks to participate in our current challenge at the Dream Factory. - Maybe you want to be a bit quiet after all these festivites and create a little something!

This months movie is 

Home Alone
Maman, j'ai raté l'avion
Kevin allein zuhause

I made this card as part of a Christmas gift exchange with my teammates at the Dream Factory. --- (we call that "Weihnachtswichteln --- I don't know if there is an English word for it)!

The upper part of the background is made with a stencil and the floor with a wood pattern stamp. I stamped, cut and embossed the image (Crafter's Companion) in several times and then layered it with Foam pads to get a 3D image. The mouse is from Katzelkraft. I colored with felt-tip pens.

... and here is the actual gift that accompanied the card!

The balloon and the teddy bear are made of felt. I drew, cut and sewed all the pieces by hand and then stuffed them. Before assembling the teddy, I wiped some brown ink on his face and on the rest of his body to give him a livelier look. A small nose and two tiny little eyes made of beads, and he looked really cute!
I removed the glass from the frame and replaced it with a gray, white-stamped cardstock. Now I had the background for the teddy and all I had to do was put him and the balloon in the frame!

The whole set!

The small package contains bar of chocolate 😉

Thank you very much for taking the time to read this post, despite much work for the festivites!
I wish you a splendid and roaring New Year's Eve - let pop the corks and slip gently into the New Year! 

Happy New Year!!
Wishing you the very best for 2018!!

Before the year ends

....I'll show you my last Christmas cards and some other creations I made, but which was not allowed to show before Christmas. 😉

Hello everyone!
Today and the coming days I'll show you my last creation from this year.

I made this cactus for my cousin's daughter. I do not know her personally, but we got to know each other through our blogs. During the year I launched an invitation on Facebook, which was to comment my post and then post it on its own profile. - She was one of the party and therefore got a little something from me as promised!

On this cactus you can easily stow pins, whether it is next to the sewing box or on the windowsill - he looks great in any case!

Oh, I almost forgot,
The cactus is knitted, the stones are made of felt and the pot is made of cardboard and decorated with washi tape. .......... the "flesh" of the cactus is made of polystyrene.

Hope you like it.... 
because tomorrow I'll show you another one! 😊

Black, White and Red

Hello everyone!

Another Christmas card today .....yes, I must hurry !!!

I stamped some fir trees on black cardstock and then scribbled with a white gel pen over it.  Added some stars and snowflakes too! 
I glued the black cardstock to the white card, sat the sentiment and added the ribbon. And voilà a very quick and easy card!

Advent, Advent ein Lichtlein brennt....

Yes, yes, I know, we are already at halftime but you know me, punctuality is not my first quality! - the package arrived on time!   .... and hey, I could not show it before! 😉

Hello everyone!
Today I show you this set that I made for a dear friend. I was inspired by Andrea's beautiful creation

...and here is my own idea.

A small Advent set. 

If you remove the lid of this box, four small scented tealights come to light. Everything is nicely decorated and equipped with what you need to light the candles. ....and so that nothing happens during shipping, the box was closed with a nice bow (not visible in the picture)

I also made this card that I think fits quite well.
I used Design paper, vellum and a die-cut. The sentiment is stamped under the vellum. The layers are held together with an eyelet which I also used to fasten the die-cut!

Have a nice day and see you soon!

Stamps:  All from Stampin'Up
Inks: Olympia Green, Vintage Sepia, Smokey Gray and Onyx Black (Versafine) Whisper White (Stampin'Up)
Embossing: Softly Falling (Stampin'Up)
Dies: Fir branch (Impression Obsession); Stars and the die-cut on the card (Scrap Plaisir)
Design Paper, Glitter, Eyelet, Ribbon, Tealights, Linen string, Matches

Enchanted winter tree

Hello everyone!

Today I have a tree for you that is somewhat enchanted by the magic of winter.

I used a dark blue background and heat embossed the tree (Katzelkraft) and the sentiment (Stampin'Up) in white. 
I added some stars in Whisper White (Stampin'Up), sponged the edges with dark blue and black ink and mounted it onto a white card. 

Have a nice day!

Stamps: Tree (Katzelkraft); Sentiment and Stars (Stampin'Up)
Inks: Majestic Blue and Onyx Black (Versafine); Whisper White (Stampin'Up)
White embossing powder
