Mixing patterns

Hello!
I hope your weekend is just as good as ours! A few months ago we invited my brothers,  sisters, BIL and SIL, nephews, nieces,  grandnephews and grandnieces over for a family-day. (Or is it called a family reunion?) They were not all able to come but  with 22 relatives we had a fabulous day.  Lots of talking and laughter,  catching up, good food and lovely weather. The memories are priceless!
And I am still enjoying my vacation for another two weeks:) There is a bit of inspiration coming back. I made this card with pieces of PL cards.  I bought a box of PL cards (Beggy Higgins "Live Brightly") and used a few favorite dies and some silver yarn:



I love the bright patterns:



Enjoy your Sunday;  thanks for stopping by! Stella



Lift challenge #90

Hello!
This is the first week of my vacation and that means plenty of time for papercrafting. But it seems that my inspiration went  abroad and I am here at home :)
So it took me a few days with endless hours   on the internet looking for inspiration. And I am getting back on track heehee.
The card I am sharing today is made  for the current Liftchallenge. We're supposed to create a card in  a different shape as usual. And add some stamping and no layering. This is the photo inspiration:




My take is white on white and  like Cornelie I added one layer. I choose the star shape for a christmas card And of course there is a deer involved:)



I cut two stars and adhered them together  with a small strip of cardstock. A little piece of twine  was also added if the recipient wants to hang it. Some hemp cord and a little bell for the finishing touch:

City Crafter #276

It is also the last week for us to have 
Suchias our special Guest Designer;  Suchi thank you so much for your fab contributions!
My take is based upon the maps in this moodboard:



 I used an old map and  punched out the place where I live. The sentiment was made with my label maker. And again it turned out very clean  and very simple:

City Crafter #275

Hello everyone!
It's Tuesday again and that means 
time for a new challenge at theCity Crafter.  Today it's my turn to host and this weeks' theme is:
"Around the corner"



(photo credit)

 I am asking you to create a card or project 
and use just one corner.
 And leave the rest of your card/project blank.
For example:
Dress up a corner with a christmastree
for a CAS christmas card.
Or use your stamps to fill the corner.
You can add a sentiment to the same corner 
or let your card speak for itself.


This is the second week that we have
Suchias our Guest Designer;  you can find more of her lovely projects on her blog.
My card has lots of white with a bit of blue and bling:) I used one of the Scribbles dies from MFT and  filled the background with Distress Ink (Weathered Wood) The sentiment is cut from silver foil.



I couldn't capture the shimmer  of the silver splatters but in real it looks great :)



You can find more inspiration from   the other team members on ourblog  I hope that you will …

City Crafter #274

Hello and good morning!

It's Tuesday again and that means 
a brand new challenge
 at the City Crafter Challenge blog
Today my dear friend Ros is our host. 
 And she asks us to make card or project 
based upon this collage:

For example: you can choose to use the colors,
 elements or a seashore theme.


Our Guest Designer for the next three weeks is Suchi;  you can find more of her lovely projects on her blog.


This is my take on the theme. I made a CAS card with 
a splash of blue and brown:




The star is a die cut from a piece of cork  and I added a gingham background.  A simple sentiment and a woodgrain sequin  as a finishing touch:



On ourblogyou can find more inspiration from   the other team members.  And I hope that you will join us this week. The winner will be invited  to join us as a Guest Designer.  Thanks for stopping by!

Mix&Match

With different brands and  a try out for coloring with pencils. A fox in grey tones; it's a silver fox. Or an old fox :) It's from a set of Lawn Fawn:



The sentiment die is from Papertrey Ink and  the background is made with a SU embossingfolder:

City Crafter #273

Hello!

It's Tuesday again!
And that means a new challenge at the 
City Crafter Challenge blog.  Today Kirsty is our host and she picked the theme "Snap". Create a card or project with a camera. 
 You can use patterned paper,
a die cut or an embellishment. 
As long as there is a camera involved:)

I made a card to wish  someone sweet a fab vacation:





I started with a Project Life card from  Becky Higgins and added a little camera.  And what would a card be without sequins, bling and twine?






On ourblogyou can find more inspiration from   the other team members. The winner will be able to join us as a Guest Designer. I am looking forward to see what you come up with;  thanks for stopping by!

Bright

Hello!
Sunday evening already! It was a fun weekend.  With some shopping, cooking  and working in the garden.  Summer is back and we had a warm and sunny day. And I enjoyed having dinner and my coffee in the garden:)
I love it when I can mix supplies from different brands.  And this time it turned out a bright birthday card.
Patterned paper from Echo Park, leaf stamp   and heart border die from Papertrey Ink.  The sentiment die cut is from Sn@p 




I added a few sequins and some twine:
