Aurora Wings Challenge #33 - "Tic Tac Toe"

Time flies by, and once again, I missed the start of our new challenge at the Aurora Wings Challenge Blog ...!

So now, last but not least, my blogpost for my designteam work :-D

This time, our challenge is themed "Tic Tac Toe".

 This is our board to work with, for explanations how to use, please visit our Challenge Blog! 

For my card, I used "pink/white/grey" + "beads/flowers/layers", the image I used is called "Sakura Fubuki Urai". 

 This time, I had printed the image on pink colored paper and did my coloring with Koh I Noor aquarell pencils.

And here are some details:

.... the roses are punched with "CUT-IES" by Mery & Martine, the doily at the background with "Die-Namics". 

.... border die cut from "Joy!Crafts"...

... and some pink pearls at the corners.

Ond the bottom left corner I added a bouquet of some paper flowers and two pearl - pins....

... and a little ticket with sentiment ("Joy!Crafts")

I hope you like my little inspiration :-)

There are soooo many ways to combine the different options of the board on the top, we're looking foreward to see your beautiful projects on our challenge! :-)

Aurora Wings Challenge #27 - "Say it with flowers"

Hello again, dear friends :-)

It's already time for another new challenge at the Aurora Wings Challenge Blog , and this time let's

"Say it with Flowers"!

For this challenge I made an example card for you using "Girl Flower Butterfly".

For the card base, I used turquoise colored cardstock and formed it with a cutting die from Crealies.

The little butterfly was printed out and hand-cut, die flowers in the background where made with a cutting die from Memory Box (first cut them out from dark brown cardstock, then another cut with rose-colored card stock an hand-cut the flowers to put them on the brown stems.)

The image was colored with Copi Ciao Markers, using the colors E18, V04, RV21, YR15, E11, YR68, E33, E000, R00, Y17, Y11, C-5, R85, Y21, RV06, BG23, E35

and Spectrum Noir Markers, using the colors GT1, GT2 (for the background)

I also used some copic cleaner and colorless blender for the drops on the background.

For some detail, I added some pearls with pearl pen to some areas of the image.

More Flowers!! :-)

To the left under corner, I addedsome paperflowers using different colors, which are also can be find in the colored image.

.... And because, this card is for my mum for mother's day (thank god she doesn't  have internet and don't look at my blog, so it's going to be a surprise yet ;-) ), I sticked this little printed tag to the right under corner - the text means "Love and kisses for mother's day".

So, please show us what you have to "Say (it) with flowers", and let us see your beautiful creations on the Aurora Wings Challenge Blog!

For more inspiration, please visit the blogs of the other DT - members - you'd be surprised of all the stunning examples they made for you!!

Thank you so much for stopping by, and have fun with our new challenge :-)

Osterkarte die Zweite

Ok ok, eigentlich wollte ich etwas zügiger dran sein mit dem nächsten Post - aber die Zeit rannte einfach mal wieder schneller davon, als ich gucken konnte :-D

Heute zeige ich euch eine weitere Karte, die ich zu Ostern gebastelt und verschickt hatte:

Viel gibt es dazu auch garnicht zu sagen.
Als Kartenrohling habe ich wieder weißes Aquarellpapier verwendet, ich finde einfach die Struktur so schön.

Darüber einen mit grauem Tonpapier hinterlegten Kartenaufleger, den ich zuerst mit einem Frühlingsstempel von Viva Decor in Distress Ink Walnut Stain bestempelt hatte.

Darauf kam ein aus Designpapier geschnittenes Ei mit Häschen (geschnitten mit der Silhouette Curio).

Dieses wurde am Rand ewas mit Distress Ink Walnut Stain gewischt, und mit Grundge-Stempeln aus einem Set von JoyCrafts bestempelt.

Hinter den Schriftzug aus einem Osterset von JoyCrafts habe ich in Distress Ink Victorian Velvet zwei Washi-Tape Stempel von Kaisercraft gesetzt.

Für heute war's das auch schon wieder von mir - morgen gibt es einen neuen Post (ganz, ganz sicher :-D ) zur neuen Aurora - Wings - Challenge ;-)

Vielen Dank für's Vorbeischauen, und besucht mich doch auch morgen wieder :-)

Eure Karola

Osterkarte die 1.

Hallo meine Lieben Leser-/innen :-)

Auch wenn Ostern schon vorbei ist, möchte ich euch natürlich nicht vorenthalten, welche Osterkarten ich dieses Jahr gemacht habe.

Viele waren es nicht (grade mal 6 Stück), und auch eher einfach gehalten.
Aber sie kamen von Herzen, und ich denke, alleine das zählt :-)

Starten wir mit dieser Karte hier:

Den Kartenrohling habe ich aus Cardstock von Stampin Up, Farbton Savanne, gemacht.

Das Designpapier links stammt aus einem Block von folia, dieses habe ich auf weißen Karton geklebt, und dann am Rand alles mit Distress Ink Fades Jeans gewischt.

Der gestempelte Schriftzug stammt aus einem Set von Viva Decor.

Für das Ei mit ausgeschnittenem Häschen habe ich meine Silhouette Curio bemüht.

Nach dem Schneiden wurde es noch mit der Cuttlebug und einem Prägefolder von Stampin Up geprägt, anschließend habe ich noch eine Schleife aus Papierkordel daran befestigt.

Vielen Dank für's Vorbeischauen, und bis bald :-)

Eure Karola
