Happy Father's Day

Hi everyone. Two weeks ago my friend and I made some Father's Day cards. Here are two of the cards I made with patterned paper from Papermania and some small flowers. The cards are quite simple, easy to make and masculine.

Blooming card

Hi everyone. Here is another Birthday Card. I coloured the flower again with watercolours and used V&A paper as background. Love this paper and stamp. Hope you like it too.

The blue sunflower

Hi everyone. I have got a new birthday card for you that I made with one of my favourite Lili of the Valley stamps. I know it is supposed to be a sunflower, but I wanted to repeat the blue colour from the patterned paper. I also used a buckle that I got from a German craft store and means All the best. I really like this card and didn't really want to part with it, but it stays in the family :-).

My first handmade Mothers Day Card

Hi everyone. I'd like to show you the card I made for my mother-in-law (the German Mothers Day is at the 8th of May). I used an embossed paper as I haven't got a embossing machine, coloured it with Distress ink und used clear embossing powder over it so it would shine. I got the heart shaped tulip stamp from Ebay so I don't know where it is from. I also used some perls that I got quite cheap from The Works. I hope my mother-in-law like it as much as I do.

Easter cards

Hi everyone. Easter is fast approaching and I've only managed to finish three Easter cards. At the moment I'm quite into colouring stamped images with water colours. The stamp with the rabbits in the basket is from Germany, the other one is a LOTV stamp. I love the green designer paper. For the last card I used a green embossed napkin that I nicked from my mother-in-law ;-). Hope you like the cards.
Happy Easter. Alexxx

Girly Birthday Card

Hi everyone. I haven't blogged for quite a while as I was busy making wedding invitations. Now that they are finished, I've got time to make cards and mini books. I made the following card for my niece who turned 8. One of her favourite colours is magenta as you can see. I coloured the cat (LOTV stamp) like the ginger one that keeps coming to our place. Therefore it is kind of a weird colour combination ;-).

Thank you cards

Hi everyone. I made the following cards for my friends and family to say thanks for the lovely presents I got for my birthday two weeks ago. I couldn't resist using my new stamps to create the flower-tendrils. They are so easy to work with. It was also a good occasion to punch some daisies. Hope you like it.

Three little words...

Hi everyone. Althought Valentine's Day was last month, I'd like to share with the card I made for my husband. It's a slider card (my very first one) and I had so much fun creating it. Hope you like it too.

Sorry you're leaving card

Hi everyone. I made the following card for a male friend who left the country for good. It was the first time I used the feather stamp and I fell completely in love with it. The whole card is quite simple and more masculine. Hope you like it.

Mini Book – Pocket Quotes

Hello. I've finished a mini book made of 1 piece of 12"x6" paper. The way it is folded it creates 5 pockets, where I put double sided quote tags in. It is easy and fun to create and a perfect gift for friends or family.

Thank you card

I have a card to share with you today which I made with a Penny Black stamp and false stitching. I don't have a "Thank you" stamp, so I simply wrote the words with a Stampin' up marker. Hope you like it.

Forever Friends Baby Girl

Hi everyone. Today I've got a card for a friend of mine, who has recently got a baby girl named Hanna. This was a great occacion to use my new Forever Friends baby stamp. It was really fun to create this card and to emboss on vellum. I'm a bit sad to part with this card.
